The purpose of this conference is to bring together a diverse group of individuals and organizations to contribute to the cultivation of a robust American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) health care workforce. The conference presented and discussed educational methodologies for AI/AN health professions education, effective and promising practices to encourage Native individuals to pursue health careers, as well as opportunities for adequate preparation and support to succeed.

The overall theme of the conference is uniting individuals and organizations and sustaining those connections to develop, grow, and enhance pathways into health professions for American Indian and Alaska Native individuals and communities.

Four core concepts illuminated to advance this process include:

Cultural Attunement

Interprofessional Education (IPE)

This is Not a Drill: Confronting Legal Issues in the Wake of International Disasters

Friday February 13, 2015 Vanderbilt Law School Nashville, Tennessee

The Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law is an integral part of the intellectual life at Vanderbilt Law School. The Journal hosts a biennial symposium on current issues of international and comparative law. Recent symposia have drawn participants from around the world to discuss topics such as foreign state immunity, international law and the arctic, and transborder trusts and estates.

The Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law invites you to its 2015 Symposium, This is Not a Drill: Confronting Legal Issues in the Wake of International Disasters.

Recent international disasters, both environmental and humanitarian, have resulted in trails of destruction and destitution, as well as an uncertain legal landscape.  In response to this situation, the International Law Commission (ILC) has completed a draft report addressing the protection of persons when disasters occur.  The Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law’s 2015 Symposium, This is Not a Drill: Confronting Legal Issues in the Wake of International Disasters, will address current international disaster response topics.  The event will focus on an in-depth review of the ILC draft.  Two additional panels will address environmental effects and disaster assistance in the wake of various types of international disasters.  Symposium participants will include leading scholars and policy-makers from across the country and abroad.

University College London Qualitative Health Research Symposium 2015

University College London Qualitative Health Research Symposium 2015

18th February 2015 London, United Kingdom

Interest in qualitative approaches among academic communities concerned with health and illness is evidenced by the rise of mixed methods studies, the proliferation of qualitative health research journals and conferences, and the marked presence of qualitative researchers in academic centres of health research. This reflects the recognition and endorsement of its contribution to research on health, illness and care. However, its inclusion is not straightforward and there can be tensions between the conceptual and methodological approaches of qualitative research and those of a quantitative paradigm generally more familiar to health practitioners, policymakers and often other researchers. These tensions bring to the fore questions to be explored around the applicability, value, contribution, legitimacy and limitations of qualitative inquiry within the prevailing research culture. Ultimately it raises important questions about how qualitative inquiry can enrich interdisciplinary collaborations.

Aim of symposium

Building on our 2013 qualitative health research meeting, we aim in this 2015 symposium to generate a more focused and constructive commentary on the contributions that qualitative inquiry can make to understandings of health, illness and care.

The Human Sciences after the Decade of the Brain--Perspectives on the Neuro-Turn in the Social Sciences and the Humanities

The Human Sciences after the Decade of the Brain--Perspectives on the Neuro-Turn in the Social Sciences and the Humanities

March 30 – March 31, 2015 Philosophy Department, Johannes Gutenberg-University of Mainz, Germany

It is now almost 25 years since the U.S. Congress authorized the then president, George Bush sr., to proclaim the decade beginning January 1, 1990 as the Decade of the Brain. This proclamation stimulated a number of initiatives that substantially benefitted neuroscience research in the following years. Alongside this rise of neuroscience and the corresponding increase of public awareness, many disciplines in the humanities and social sciences have shifted towards more brain based and evolutionary informed approaches. New research fields such as Neuroethics, Neuroeconomics, Cognitive Cultural Studies, Neuroaesthetics or even Neurotheology have gained a following. In addition to surveying the mutual interactions between the cognitive neurosciences and the social sciences and humanities, this interdisciplinary conference investigates the methodological and conceptual prospects and perils of choosing a neuroscience approach to the social sciences and the humanities. The conference aims to shed light on a broad range of epistemological, historical and sociological questions about the purported neuro-turn in the social sciences and the humanities including (but not limited to):

• How and why have brain based approaches to the social sciences and humanities developed?

• What exactly distinguishes cognitive and brain based approaches from their traditional counterparts?

• How are brain-based sub-disciplines of the traditional humanities institutionalized?

• How does research policy contribute to the development of a neuro-turn in the social sciences and the humanities?

• Are there common motives for turning to cognitive neuroscience approaches in the different disciplines of social sciences and humanities? If so, which?

• Are there any historical examples of a turn to brain based approaches in the social sciences and the humanities?

• If so, what could be learned from this history for practicing social sciences and humanities today?

• What, if anything, can the humanities and the social sciences learn from the neurosciences?

• What, if anything, can the neurosciences learn from the social sciences and the humanities?

• How does neuroscience change the social sciences and the humanities?

• How do the humanities and the social sciences change neuroscience?
