Tanja Petrovich, “Military Service in Socialist Yugoslavia” @ S107 South Kedzie Hall
Mar 13 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Tanja Petrovich, "Military Service in Socialist Yugoslavia" @ S107 South Kedzie Hall | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Lecture by Tanja Petrovich, Institute for Culture and Memory Studies, Slovenia

“Military Service in Socialist Yugoslavia:  Making Sense of (Post)Yugoslav Masculinity.”

This lecture is part of GSAH’s “Rethinking State Socialism” speaker series organized by Dr. Nikolary Karkov.

The lecture discusses the meaning of memories of the gendered, collective national experience of mandatory military service in socialist Yugoslavia. These memories still connect several generations of men – the same men who in the 1990s more or less actively participated in the violent destruction of the country they had served. Irrespective of their personal and professional trajectories, for most of former recruits their army service experience remains important and meaningful. How does the aftermath of national trauma reveal dimensions of this militarized, yet fractured, contested, impassioned, and even sentimental masculinity? How did selves, shaped by the homogenous, socially cohesive experiences in a hierarchical military, survive the centrifugal forces of civil war? How are these memories incorporated into broader narratives through which Yugoslavia is historicized? What light they shed on the relationship between manhood, violence and nationhood? How do they complicate our understanding of state socialism and its disciplinary mechanisms, and what lessons do they hold for the future?

Bioethics Series: Marleen Eijkholt @ C102 East Fee Hall

Bioethics Series: Marleen Eijkholt @ C102 East Fee Hall | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

This event is presented by the Center for Ethics and Humanities in the Life Sciences.

Professor Marleen Eijkholt, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine

Pain but No Gain: Pain as a Problematic and Useless Concept?

References to the human experience of “pain” are common, but those references are often ambiguous and vague. Such ambiguity creates conceptual and practical challenges, especially in the work of clinical ethics consultation. While pain is a relevant clinical problem, it is also a social construct shaped by culture, environment, and gender. These distinctions however get lost in a simple “pain” reference. With several clinical ethics scenarios, Dr. Eijkholt will ask if references to pain help us with anything, or if we should perhaps abandon pain as a “useless concept.”

Teaching to who and where students are: Making courses accessible @ Digital Scholarship Lab (2nd floor of the west wing in the MSU Main Library)

Presenters: Madeline Shellgren

This workshop focuses on various notions of accessibility. We will start with questioning who students are and why that is important to consider. Together, we will also explore ways to make space for identity and student agency, discussing how we can help create opportunities for students to empower themselves and find relevance in course content, curriculum, and design. We will then move to ways to critically leverage today’s technology, specifically focusing on intentional and ongoing work we can do as instructors to remove barriers to information and education.
