Myrna Goodman, Director of the Center for the Study of Holocaust and Genocide “This is an important movie. It’s a story of love and healing but also one with the strong message that we should never forget the Holocaust, especially with the increase of antisemitism that is rising in this country." Brian Wilson, Coordinator of the University’s Jewish Studies Program All lectures are free and open to the public. Please share this with others who may be interested in attending.

56:A Arts & Lecture How Does the Brain make up its Mind? Mysteries of the Origin of Consciousness
 
Presenter(s): Jurgen Kremer
 
Why are human beings conscious? The arising of consciousness is commonly explained as a process in which the biological processes of the brain create our minds. All these explanations seem to involve a leap from the biology of the brain to the psychology of the mind - an unexplained leap that makes these theories ultimately unsatisfactory. Recent advances in code biology and quantum theory help us avoid this leap of faith from brain to mind. Rather, it understands brain and mind as complementarity, just as particle and wave are complementary in quantum theory. This exciting new theoretical perspective, described by Gazzaniga, Hameroff, Barad, Frecska, and others, has important implications for our understanding of the field of psychology. It opens the door to a new self-understanding and returns us full circle to Indigenous intuitions and practices.

They were hidden from 1943-1945 on a farm north of Hamburg owned by friends of her German father who hid several others as well. Her mother lost her entire immediate and extended family with the exception of one cousin. She later married another German-Jew who survived the Neuengamme concentration camp. Rena is a retired preschool teacher. Her daughter, Susan Victor, is a professor of Curriculum Studies and Secondary Education in the School of Education at Sonoma State University where she teaches courses in adolescent development and classroom management. Susan is also a Board member of the Alliance for the Study of the Holocaust and Genocide. Last year Rena’s grandson, Micah Victor Lesch, graduated with highest honors from UC Davis. He earned a bachelor's degree in History with minors in Jewish Studies and Human Rights. His honors' thesis, entitled “Imprisoned at Home: A Comparative Study of Judenhauser in Nazi Germany, 1939-1945,” examines the haphazard methods the Nazis used to ghettoize German Jews. He is currently the Engagement Associate at UC Berkeley Hillel. All lectures are free and open to the public. Please share this with others who may be interested in attending.

Presenter(s): Sam Mihara
 
Please join us on Tuesday, February 11th for the fourth lecture in the 2020 series on the Holocaust and Genocide at Sonoma State University from 4-5:50 p.m. in Warren Auditorium of Ives Hall on the SSU campus. Sam Mihara will be speaking about his family’s internment by the U.S. government during the Second World War. Mr. Mihara is a second-generation Japanese American. His parents were born in Japan and immigrated to the U.S. in the 1920’s. Sam was born in the early 1930’s and raised in San Francisco. When World War II broke out, the United States government forced Sam and his family to move to a detention camp in Pomona, California. They then went to the remote Heart Mountain prison camp in Northern Wyoming where they stayed for three years. Together 10 camps in the United States housed 120,000 West Coast residents of Japanese ancestry, most of them U.S.-born American citizens. Sam’s family lived in a single room, measuring 20 feet by 20 feet, for their entire imprisonment. Sam developed his Memories of Heart Mountain presentation to educate people and help ensure such civil rights violations don’t happen again. In it, he tells the story of his family and what happened to them, why the camps were created, and the important lessons learned from this experience. All lectures are free and open to the public. Please share this with others who may be interested in attending.

Presenter(s): Anne Donegan
 
The first time the idea of women voting was discussed in the United States publicly was in 1848 at the Seneca Falls Women’s Rights convention.   Yet it wasn’t until 1920, when the 19th Amendment was added to the U.S. Constitution.   This amendment, which granted women the right to vote, represented the pinnacle of the women’s suffrage movement, which was led by the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA).  In this talk, SRJC History Faculty Anne Donegan will focus on what happened between 1848 and 1920, how women were able to achieve this goal, and why it took so long for it to happen.

77:A WHM Activity - Penelope at Her Stitching: The Process of Women’s Mythmaking
 
Presenter(s): Purnur Ozbirinci
 
Myths are the narrative patterns that?unite a group of people and?provide individuals with the necessary experience, language, words, or stories that help them shape their lives and identities. Thus, mythmakers, who possess these keys, have the power to adjust, to manipulate, and to change these societies. However, for centuries, women were withheld from creating their own myths and truths. Those who could access the “word” imposed their own myths upon all “others.” However, women’s existence depends on their power to use the “word.” In this presentation, SRJC English Faculty Dr. Purnur Ozbirinci will argue that women can only exist as equals when their myths are retold and accepted equitably to link them to the contemporary social order. For this reason, it is our utmost duty to?reveal the oppressive myths of the patriarchy to regain our own voice and to recreate our own myths.

76:A WHM Activity - Closing Equity Gaps: Integrating SRJC Student Data with Students' Experiences?
 
Presenter(s): Michelle Vidaurri
 
As part of the Integrated Student Success Committee (ISSC), a branch of the Fall 2019 research inquiry teamwork centered on first-year student achievements. Surprising results were noted that revealed a lower success rate for specific female groups who are part of the Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) and who identify as LGTBQ, white, African American, and Native American. Director of Assessment Services & Student Success Technologies, Michelle Vidaurri’s presentation?will focus on this research and data to narrow down the criteria that result in a higher disproportionate impact for our first year, female students. Moreover, to learn more about how the campus can work to close these equity gaps, we will hear from a panel of SRJC students, so we can pair research and data with SRJC students’ experiences.?

79:A Education was the Foundation of the Civil Rights Movement and Septima Clark was their Champion
 
Presenter(s): Sabrina Rawson
 
This presentation is part of the 2020 Women's History Month calendar. Septima Clark shared the same social, economic, and segregated background as other black community members. American cultural memory of women in the Civil Rights Movement continues to be a problem with female leaders being conveniently left out of historiography. She had to constantly struggle to be heard, yet her struggle and her sacrifice have been forgotten in the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. Illiteracy, she argued, was at the core of racial inequities. She didn’t just teach the Black community how to read and write; she used daily experiences to show them how justified self-sufficiency was worthy of their aspirations. In this presentation, former SRJC student, current Sonoma State University MA candidate Sabrina Rawson will argue that for Septima Clark, education was a necessary cornerstone of political and legislative freedom; however, gendered ideas about activism—both then and now—have kept her significant contributions from being recognized. Education was the foundation of the Civil Rights Movement and Septima Clark was their champion.
