8:30 AM - 2:30 PM Chemistry and Biochemistry Student Research Conference
Join us for the Chemistry and Biochemistry Student Research Conference. Our students will be presenting their senior thesis work from research projects and internships, and refreshments will be provided.

The keynote talk from Dr. Daniel Faber will be at 1:00 PM. Dr. Faber is a Professor of Sociology and the Director of the Northeastern Environmental Justice Research Collaborative at Northeastern University (NEJRC). The NEJRC is made up of scholars dedicated to building a more transformative environmentalism in the United States and around the world (http://www.northeastern.edu/nejrc/).   
 
Abstract: Environmental Justice and the Crisis of Environmentalism
In his talk, Dr. Daniel Faber will discuss some of the major achievements and challenges confronting the environmental movement.  America's largest and most powerful corporate polluters are leading a political offensive aimed at weakening many of the country's most essential environmental, occupational, and consumer protection laws.  In addition, corporate-led globalization is also facilitating the export of ecological hazards abroad.  The result is a deepening of the ecological crisis in both the United States and the Global South.  However, not all people are impacted equally, as it is the most marginalized segments of society —poor people of color and the working class—that suffer the greatest environmental abuses.  Hence, the environmental movement is at a crossroads.  This talk will address new forms of environmental activism that are beginning to take root in American society.

BDSM is the pursuit of giving and receiving pleasure through bold sensation, and the consensual exchange of temporarily giving up control or taking on authority over another. Join Sinclair Sexsmith, feminist dominant and kink aficionado, for a workshop on everything you need to know to start playing with bondage, sadism, masochism, power exchange, and more. We’ll explore how consent and agency are key issues in feminism and how they work in the exploration of BDSM, and we'll discuss different kinds of topping and bottoming, as well as theories to enhance your personal BDSM skills. And then we'll talk about all your questions, like: What's difference is between BDSM and abuse? And, Is it healthy to engage in kinky sex play? (Hint: Sinclair thinks it is not only healthy, but can be healing.) We can't cover ALL of kink in just one workshop, but we you'll definitely leave with tons of ideas and avenues to explore!

This event is co-sponsored by Rainbow Alliance and ODS

Food will be served.

Sarah Sobieraj (Associate Professor of sociology, Tufts University and author, The Outrage Industry)

The online world grapples daily with the struggle between freedom of expression and the right to privacy with one’s internet presence, particularly in comment sections of popular blogs. Nearly all internet comments are allowed to be anonymous but many people regularly take advantage of that with shockingly abusive comments. Does the American public deserve online privacy? Does the current environment have a chilling effect on others’ freedom of speech? Can journalists be expected to take this abuse as part of their jobs, day in and day out? And short of compulsory identity verification, is there something we can do to mitigate the ill effects of this sociological phenomenon?
