"Bisexuality and Disability in Nickelodeon’s Legend of Korra"; Autumn Cejer

Zoom link provided after registration

On December 19, 2014, the last episode of Nickelodeon’s Legend of Korra showed Korra, the young Avatar able to bend all four elements, and the nonbender Asami holding hands and smiling into the other’s eyes, similar to the final moments between the main romantic couple of the prequel series. One of the creators, Bryan Konietzko, writes in a blog post about roadblocks he and his co-creator faced pursuing the ending they wanted: “We approached the network and while they were supportive there was a limit to how far we could go with it.” Despite its faults, Korra and Asami’s relationship was revolutionary not only in its depiction of a same-sex bisexual relationship, but also for the show’s portrayals of disability.

"Implementing Effective Initiatives to Address Toxic Masculinity on College Campuses"; Dr. Keenan Colquitt

NMU Logo on bricks

Zoom link provided after registration

College, specifically undergraduate, men are often described as “drunken, promiscuous… lovers of pornography, sports, and video games who rape women, physically assault each other, [and] vandalize buildings on campus” (Harris & Harper, 2014, p. 10). These behaviors are perceived to be common, even normal, for undergraduate men; however, there are many men who forego engaging in these behaviors and actively work to undermine toxic gender norms on their campuses. This presentation highlights college men who actively work to disrupt toxic gender norms that perpetuate men’s violence. Those who attend will begin to understand what motivates these men to act and how to implement effective initiatives to address toxic masculinity on college campuses.

"Surviving Hurricane Maria: Mothers on the March"; Prof. Sara Potter

NMU Logo on bricks

Zoom link provided after registration

As their routines disappeared and their domestic responsibilities doubled, Puerto Rican mothers Noelia and Mariel, found themselves absorbing the impact of the disaster for their families. While Puerto Rican mothers have historically carried the burden of decades of structural and economic decline, overnight the stakes had changed, and their mothering practices needed to yet again, adjust "on the march." When taken together, the paradigm of intensive mothering and the gendered stratification of disaster relief and recovery efforts produced conditions that not only push them back into the private but also double their mothering obligations, and endowed them with guilt and burdens of the selfless. At the same time, mothers must creatively approach mothering in these conditions, building new neighborhood relationships and rethinking the old familiar routines. Put differently, these mothers were not immune to cultural and societal norms that are not only engendered by care work but place the responsibility and expectation for resilience on women. As I will show in this presentation through two different mothering narratives, mothers reconciled the material, psychological, and discursive tensions by shifting not just the way they mothered, finding empowering moments in the disempowering conditions, but also how they came to feel about mothering and themselves in light of the narratives around them.

UP Association of Behavior Analysis - March Webinar

UPABA is proud to be hosting Dr. Ryan Speelman, BCBA presenting Philosophical and Conceptual Foundations in Gambling Research on Friday, March 19, 2021 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. 

Abstract: This talk will outline foundational components of the 5th edition task list and correspondence to gambling research, including specific exemplars. While gambling treatment/research is an uncommon career avenue for certified practitioners, an understanding of how this research shares philosophical underpinnings and procedures with more common job duties will provide attendees with a broader understanding of these applications.  Outlining these commonalities will help practitioners generalize/apply experimentally verified learning principles across clientele, contexts, and presenting problems.    

Learning Objectives: At the completion of this event, participants will be able to use radical behaviorism as a philosophical orientation of science to describe/analyze behavior across a multitude of settings and use gambling literature to provide examples for each of the “concepts and principles” listed under section 1B of the BACB’s 5th edition task list.
