Nicholas Begley, Graduate Student, University of Washington – Bothell
(SCC grad, ’14)

Everyday images of agricultural production commonly depict barns, farm animals, irrigation equipment, and of course, big fields. These traditional interpretations continue to dominate our perception of agriculture because of their historical and cultural foundations. However, as consumer demand for locally grown produce rises, so does awareness about the impacts of climate change on food security. Alternative methods like hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics could be a solution to meet the needs of rising populations. Indoor farming is a more sustainable growing option that could mitigate the impacts of climate change, while providing healthy food options to urban and rural food deserts. The social and ethical issues of equal access to food and the cultural perceptions of agriculture will continue to change as new technologies arise.

Workshop: In Their Shoes: Understanding Domestic Violence, PUB 9208
Wed., Oct. 26: 12:30-1:30 p.m.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month – help raise awareness about domestic violence and join in our efforts to end it.

The Counseling Center will facilitate an interactive, scenario-based training where participants move, think, and experience the lives of people impacted by domestic violence.

Participants will make choices about their character’s relationships and move through the scenario by reading about interactions with their partner, family, friends, counselors, law enforcement, and others.

The development of this training was funded by the parents of Dayna Fure – murdered by her ex-boyfriend on May 24, 2004, just before she was to graduate from Stanwood High School – to invest in the lives of others and to turn their grief into action.

WEAR PURPLE – the color of Domestic Violence Awareness Month – during the month of October and use this as a way to tell others why ending domestic violence is important to you.

Questions? Contact Sheryl Copeland at scopeland@shoreline.edu or 206.533.6712.

zombies
Since 2001, zombies have become more popular than ever. Why? Zombies tap into historic narratives about Arabs, Muslims, and East Asians. Symbolizing the racial and socioeconomic “Other,” zombies are infused with Orientalist qualities. But, some zombie stories play with and resist these Orientalist ideas — and so can we.
