Crises of Capitalism: Panel on the Eurozone Crisis

Euro and map of Europe5:00pm | Wednesday, January 25, 2012 | Location TBA (check the CES calendar for updates) | UNC-Chapel Hill | Contact info: Lauren Phelps
In the past few months, academics and students alike have attentively watched the flood of news coming in from Greece, Italy, Spain, and the EU with regards to the incipient economic turmoil. On the evening of January 25th, UNC's on campus international justice organization, Global Alliance, will hold a panel titled "Crises of Capitalism." Part of a weeklong series, the panel seeks to explore how flawed economic policies can wreak havoc on our financial systems, living standards, and especially how these policies spawn social movements. 

Professors from various academic specialties will discuss differing views on the impacts of the Eurozone Crisis, more specifically in the context of these movements and what affects they might have on European states. The panel will feature professor John Stephens, the Gerhard E. Lenski, Jr., Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Sociology as well as the Director of the Center for European Studies, professor Niamh Hardiman, a political economist visiting the Global Research Institute this semester, as well as professors outside of the political and economic spheres.

North Carolina German Studies Seminar

Flag and outline of GermanySunday, January 22, 2012 | 5:00 - 7:00pm | Hyde Hall | Institute for the Arts and Humanities | UNC-Chapel Hill
As part of the North Carolina German Studies Seminar & Workshop Series, Sarah Summers (Ph.D. candidate, UNC-Chapel Hill)
will present a seminar entitled Reconciling Family and Work: The West German Gendered Division of Labor and Women's Emancipation, 1960s-1980s.

The "New Women's Movement" in West Germany until recently has been associated with the "autonomous" strategy, an anti-institutional approach to feminist politics. This has obscured the perception of the wider movement for women's emancipation in the 1970s. In her presentation, Summers argues that only a broad understanding of feminist activism allows scholars to understand the struggle of women for an equal division of labor between the sexes, and to integrate it into the broader narratives of the 1970s and 1980s. The paper will explore this struggle and the related debates over family policy in the FRG, demonstrating the social and political differences between the various groups of women contributed to the stagnant development of policy aimed at easing the burden of balancing family and work. The divisions prevented coalition building around progressive social policy as in other Western European countries.

Refreshments and drinks will be served after the seminar. Please register with Stephen Milder in a timely fashion.

For more information, please visit www.unc.edu/ncgs/seminars.html.

In conjunction with the Center for European Studies. Sponsored by Carolina Seminars, the UNC-Chapel Hill Institute for the Arts and Humanities, UNC-Chapel Hill Program in the Humanities and Human Values, and the Departments of Germanic Languages and Literatures and History at Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill.

Global Updates from World View: Holidays Around the World

World ViewThe word holiday originates from the term "holy day," although many define holidays as state or federally mandated days that students and employees do not work. Holidays are a time where people focus on important religious, cultural, or global events. Educating students about holidays around the world is a great way to start service learning projects and integrate units on important global issues. This edition of Global Updates focuses on fall and winter holidays around the world and shines a special spotlight on New Year Celebrations and using holidays for service learning.
