Student Event Spotlight

A new semester means new student events! If your club or organization is interested in having your event featured in our weekly roundup, please submit them to or DM us on Instagram @bwog.

At Monday from 4:15-5:45pm, there will be a discussion of Radicalizing Her. This event will focus on Dr. Nimmi Gowrinathan’s book Radicalizing Her, which focuses on the female fighter. Dr. Gowrinathan has spent nearly twenty years in conversation with female fighters in Colombia, Eritrea, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The book discusses issues such as the erasure of female fighter from narratives, and argues for a more nuanced understanding of these women, who have often been deeply misunderstood.

Also on Monday from 5:00-6:00pm is Nonstate Warfare: The Military Methods of Guerillas, Warlords, and Militias. One of the main assumptions that underlies debates about state and nonstate warfare is that state and nonstate actors fight in fundamentally different ways. In an event hosted by the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies, Stephen Biddle will be discussing his book Nonstate Warfare, which considers wartime military activity and demonstrates that this assumption can lead to flawed policy and scholarship.

On Tuesday from 12-2pm, there will be a 1968 Protest Event. This discussion on the philosophical heritage of the events of 1968 in France and in Czechoslovakia is for the publication of the collective volume Revolutions for the Future: May ’68 and the Prague Spring (ed. Jana Ndiaye Berankova, Michael Hauser, Nick Nesbitt). The book contains essays from both French and Czech perspectives on the events of 1968 and captures a crucial moment for a generation of philosophers.

On Wednesday from 1-2pm, there will be an event focusing Children’s Rights Advocacy, which requires knowledge of Spanish. One of the essential parts of the return to normalcy after disaster is a return of some semblance of normalcy for children, as establishing routines in their lives after disaster disruption allow economic and community recovery to begin. The Resilient Children/Resilient Communities Initiative (RCRC), has worked to create reports summarizing five years of work in six communities across the United States. This webinar will present perspectives on child care and mental health and their intersection with public policy in disasters from members of the Coalition for Community Resilience of Puerto Rico.

From 2:10-3:40 pm on Wednesday, there will be a discussion on Misallocation, Social Institutions and Economic Growth in Mexico. As a part of the Series “The World Economy: Views of Chief Economists,” the Center on Global Economic Governance  and the MPA in Economic Policy Management will present an event on social institutions and economic growth in Mexico. Santiago Levy, Former Vice President for Sectors and Knowledge at the Inter-American Development Bank, will discuss outdated social institutions  that are deeply rooted in the country’s history that lead to misallocation of resources and suppress productivity growth.

On Thursday from 5-6pm, Dr. Richard Ha will discuss the clinical role of radiology and his perspective on the future of the field, including discussion on artificial intelligence in radiology in the event Radiology: Present and Future.

On Friday from 12-2pm, there will be an event on the Revolution on the Granite. The Ukranian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute will be holding an event discussing the “Revolution on the Granite,” examining how it set the stage for future protests and mobilization networks, as well as ideologies, claims, and grievances. Olga Unuch (University of Manchester) will present, with a discussion moderated by Mark Andryczyck.
