Talkbits on Civil War: The Body's Disharmony

In this installment of our ongoing series of audiovisual conversations on civil war, Mei Zhan considers our theme as a conceptual device in relationship to her work, past and present. Currently, Zhan is writing an ethnography on the invention of a new kind of classical Chinese medicine on the edges of the healthcare establishment in China. She examines how these experiments in thinking, doing and being aim to "bring medicine back to life" in entrepreneurial China. In this interview, we discuss the divisions among allopathic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), and new biomedicine and the implications this has for civil society and, more distinctly, the body.

RRG On Truth: Vampires

Since its founding, UCHRI has funded Residential Research Groups for faculty and graduate students to engage in collaborative work around a specific topic. In Spring 2019, the topic was Truth, broadly conceived. UCHRI welcomed convener Aaron James in philosophy at UC Irvine, and participants Wayne Spencer Coffey in History of Consciousness at UC Santa Cruz, Robin Derby in History at UCLA, Liron Mor in Comparative Literature at UC Irvine, Poulomi Saha in English at UC Berkeley, and Abigail Stepnitz in Jurisprudence and Social Policy also at UC Berkeley. The following is an intimate look into one of their weekly interdisciplinary seminars held here at UCHRI, featuring a conversation that spans vampires, transcontinental witchcraft, and leads ultimately to Hilary Clinton and Pizzagate, which they read as a modern witch story.

Unbecoming Academic: The Value of a Humanities PhD

For most of those who have devoted the better part of a decade to earning a PhD in the humanities, a doctoral degree and the experience of earning it holds a deep, inherent value. And yet, higher education struggles to articulate the nature of that value, often resorting to traditional economic notions of earnings and transferrable skills. In this podcast, we explore the concept of value as it is defined within multiple disciplines and contexts.

Voices of Diversity Episode One

Episode 1: What is Diversity? examines social justice issues and inclusivity in higher education, centering on the perspectives of faculty, administrators, and graduate students from underrepresented groups. These groups include women, those who identify as LGBTQ, individuals from working-class backgrounds, and people of color. As the United States becomes increasingly diverse, graduation rates for advanced degree holders, management level staff positions, and faculty fail to reflect these changing demographics. Diversity is at the heart of our podcast, however, definitions vary. In this episode we will hear from scholars Whitney N. Pirtle, Assistant Professor of Sociology at UC-Merced, Dr. Jenny Kwon Special Projects Coordinator with the Office of the Chancellor at UC-Berkeley, and Henry Lem, PhD Candidate from the Department of East Asian Languages & Literatures at UC-Irvine, as we attempt to answer the question, “What is diversity?”
