Thinking Like a Watershed

27 Aug 2016

Master storyteller Jack Loeffler focuses on the importance of perceiving watersheds as complete ecosystems of which our own species is but one of many. He addresses the effects of damming wild rivers, the imposition of geo-political boundaries and the error of perceiving water as a commodity to be turned into money. He illustrates diverse points of view from interviews he has recorded with in the Columbia, Colorado and Rio Grande watersheds. He cites the revered Russian philosopher, Pyotr Kropotkin, who contended that evolution of species and culture owes far more to mutual cooperation than to mutual antagonism. 3 pm - 4 pm. Free to the public at the Farmington Museum Foundation, 3041 E Main St, Farmington, NM 87401.

From Cold War to Hot Peace? Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin and the 'Triangulation' of German Foreign Policy Dr. Joyce Mushaben, University of Missouri-St.Louis

19 Jan 2016

As Germany's first female, Eastern Chancellor, Angela Merkel took to the international stage like a moth to a flame. She quickly emerged as an effective mediator among three competing forces: the United States, the European Union and Russia. Her expertise in energy security, environmental sustainability, and climate change accorded her a distinctive voice in "high politics". Merkel presents herself as a critical friend of the US. Dr. Mushaben will present some short case studies illustrating Merkel's efforts to keep both superpowers engaged.
