The April 7 meeting covers the Middle East: From a proxy war in Yemen to an ongoing civil war in Syria, a number of ongoing conflicts have shaken the traditional alliances in the Middle East to their core. As alliances between state and non-state actors in the region are constantly shifting, the U.S. has found itself between a rock and a hard place. In a series of conflicts that are far from being black-and-white, what can the U.S. do to secure its interests in the region without causing further damage and disruption?

SCC Art Gallery Artist’s Reception with Andrew Fallat, Art Gallery (1000 bldg.)
Thurs., Feb. 25: 5-7:30 p.m.
andrew fallat poster
Join us for an artist’s reception with Andrew Fallat to celebrate his solo show: “The Banal in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction.” The show is housed in the Admin bldg (1000) art gallery now through March 4.

The reception celebration will include collaboration with English and Writing students from Shoreline Community College, who will share writing inspired by Fallat’s work at the reception.

About the show:
Through the exploration of kinetic systems and phenomena, Andy Fallat’s work focuses on the condensation of a narrative into an three dimensional object. Building machines and sculptures that are slightly above human scale, he calls attention to our place within a system. Fallat creates creatures and interactive situations with industrial and classically sculptural processes that question our relationships to them and each other.

The work presented in this exhibit is a series of sculptures and low reliefs. They are machines that imitate life. The hope, fear, and complexity that Fallat finds on walks around his neighborhood. It is a shrub as potent as its cousin the mighty spruce. They are lines that become form and patterns that mute shape. It is what happens when two things point to the same mark.

Intramural Personal Training, Athletics bldg., room 3007

GAC Presents: Dental Hygiene and Nursing Service-Learning in Bolivia, Tues., Nov. 24

global eyes
Join the GAC on Tues., Nov. 24 in the PUB 9208 from 10:30-11:20 a.m. for a presentation on “Dental Hygiene and Nursing Service Learning in Bolivia.”

Working with the Smiles Forever Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Seattle, a group of Nursing and Dental Hygiene students from Shoreline Community College had the chance of a lifetime to see firsthand how simple healthcare practices can make a difference in impoverished communities.

Led by Shoreline faculty members Katie Fleming and Lisa Libassi, this two-week program enabled students to explore medical issues and disease treatment in an environment with limited equipment. They visited the first and only dental hygiene school in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Nursing students had numerous opportunities to work in hospital and clinic settings, as well as in public health facilities and to conduct medical screening health fairs.

Join us on November 24 when Katie and Lisa will discuss how this experience gave their students a broader understanding of diverse cultures and complex health and political issues. For more information about Katie Fleming and Lisa Libassi, visit our biographies page.

The GAC Presents “Cambodia: A Country of Contradictions,” by Diana Knauf, Wed., Nov. 18

global eyes series
Join us Wed., Nov. 18 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the PUB Quiet Dining Room (9208) for a talk by Shoreline’s own Prof. Diana Knauf titled “Cambodia: A Country of Contradictions.”

For most, Cambodia evokes one of two striking images; the majesty of the ancient Ankor Wat or the Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge era (1975-1979). Come expand your view of this beautiful, sometimes historically troubled and now quickly developing country – there is far more about Cambodia worth knowing.

As with most nations, issues abound: Socio-economic imbalances exist between rural and urban areas, and when combined with the lack of opportunities for employment, education, and safe-migration, issues such as human trafficking arise. Nongovernmental organizations may have sincere hopes of helping, but are they effective? How can one move forward in our fast paced world and yet still protect rich cultural traditions and the environment? In a country determined to move beyond the recent historical events, things move awfully fast, sometimes at a cost to the environment and to its citizens.

Diana Knauf has made two trips to Cambodia (most recently this summer) where she spoke with experts and observed first-hand the beauty and troubles of Cambodia. Join us in discussing this country of contradictions with her. For more information about Dr. Knauf, visit our biographies page.
