"Mapping Celestial Mythologies"

Event Dates and Times

5/13/2017 - Starts: 7:00 PM
Rick Allen Room, Herrett Center, College of Southern Idaho
Each constellation in the night sky carries a unique story of its own, and different cultures have different stories for those constellations. For the May meeting of the Magic Valley Astronomical Society, Dr. Elizabeth Cartwright of Idaho State University will give us a glimpse into how Native American cultures viewed those stories in the sky.

Dr. Cartwright is a medical anthropologist whose work focuses on structural vulnerability, environmental health threats (fracking, pesticides, Chagas disease) and health among immigrant and ethnic populations. Cartwright’s current work includes a multi-faceted research project studying the effects of development on rural communities in the highlands of Peru near Machu Picchu. Her community based research projects are carried out by integrating community members in all aspects of the research process, from defining the research question to designing the project and gathering data. Community members are also involved in data analysis, writing up and publishing results and presenting the research projects at professional and community meetings. Cartwright teaches visual anthropology, ethnographic filmmaking, Global Health, and many other courses for the Department of Anthropology at ISU.

RESILIENCE is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress. Experts now believe that toxic stress is one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression. These extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior. RESILIENCE chronicles this new approach among pediatricians, therapists, educators and communities who are using cutting-edge science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.
