Wellness Through Events

The Paw Print

Each week the Division of Student Affairs sends out The Paw Print, which will provide you with updates on key areas and events that you can engage in virtually. An archive of each week's announcement will be kept here

Look for the section of this newsletter called Physically Distant, Socially Connected where you will find weekly engagement opportunities to connect to your fellow Wildcats, Chicagoland, and the globe.
 
The division of student affairs is committed to maintaining current connections and establishing new ones as we remain physically apart. Although not in-person, we will continue to offer various programs for the community. You are invited to check your inbox for weekly engagement opportunities, and follow your favorite social media platforms for specific and departmental programs.
 
The Importance of Engaging for Your Wellness

Engaging in stimulating activities outside of the classroom is just as important to support your overall health and wellbeing as attending classes and studying for your exams. Northwestern provides an endless array of engaging events for little or no cost. These opportunities allow for connecting with new people and learning in a way you may not have otherwise.

Every event provides some way to foster an area of your wellbeing whether it’s a movie screening, speaker panel, sporting event, or even Dillo Day! Give yourself the time to enjoy these opportunities. It just may be what sends you on a new path you never could see before.

Itinerant Objects: Early Modern Mobility and the Spaces In Between

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM, No Location

Elizabeth Rodini will present Itinerant Objects: Early Modern Mobility and the Spaces In Between on Tuesday, December 8th at 4 PM CT.  Centering on objects that moved into and through Venice in the early modern period, this workshop queries the ways we think and talk about mobility, historically and in the present. Rodini proposes both mobility and distance as vectors of meaning, and invites conversation about how to explore the resulting questions in practices of research, writing, and museum display. Elizabeth Rodini is Andrew Heiskell Director of Arts at the American Academy in Rome. Before assuming her position in Rome, she taught at Johns Hopkins University, where she founded the program in Museums and Society, as well as other universities.  Her work joins scholarship in the history of art, curatorial practice, and museology.  Her current research interests center on narratives of material heritage: the objects we protect and preserve, the stories we tell about them, and the way those stories get shared. Rodini's visit is organized by William West (Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literary Studies), and is supported by Northwestern Buffett and the Office of the Vice President for International Relations through a Virtual International Visitors Grant.

Socioeconomic Decline and Death: Midlife Impacts of Graduating in a Recession

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM, Online

Registration required. This webinar is part of the IPHAM Seminar Series, a weekly public health webinar series hosted by the Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM) at Northwestern University. Guest: Hannes Schwandt, PhD Assistant Professor of Economics and Human Development School of Education and Social Policy Northwestern University Professor Schwandt will discuss his paper, entitled "Socioeconomic Decline and Death: Midlife Impacts of Graduating in a Recession," which uses several large cross-sectional data sources and a new approach to estimate midlife effects of entering the labor market in a recession on mortality by cause and various measures of socioeconomic status. The findings show that cohorts coming of age during the deep recession of the early 1980s suffer increases in mortality that appear in their late 30s and further strengthen through age 50. These mortality impacts are driven by disease-related causes such as heart disease, lung cancer, and liver disease, as well as drug overdoses. At the same time, unlucky middle-aged labor market entrants earn less and work more while receiving less welfare support. They are also less likely to be married, more likely to be divorced, and experience higher rates of childlessness. Findings demonstrate that temporary disadvantages in the labor market during young adulthood can have substantial impacts on lifetime outcomes, can affect life and death in middle age, and go beyond the transitory initial career effects typically studied. Hannes Schwandt’s research lies at the intersection of health economics, labor economics, and economic demography and focuses on the role of health in determining economic inequality.

Working Memory: The Present Day Uses of the Jewish Past

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM, Online

In the Jewish tradition (as in any tradition), collective memory is not merely a sterile recall of past events --it is a conveyer of meaning, a way of selecting, shaping, and transmitting the values and commitments of the past in order to shape the present and future. Recent scholarship in the fields of Jewish and Israel Studies has taken this insight in innovative and provocative new directions.  Over the course of two panel discussions, some of today's leading scholars will discuss the ways in which Jewish memory has been crafted, augmented, instrumentalized, and contested: from debates over how to memorialize antisemitism in pre-modern Europe, to Jewish perspectives on Confederate memory in the southern US, and to the rise of nostalgia as a modern Jewish mitzvah. This discussion series is presented as the 2021 Manfred H. Vogel Lecture in Judaic Studies  Please join us …. Thursday, January 14, 2021, 7:00 p.m. via Zoom Memorialization: Preserving, Performing, and Protesting Jewish History Panelists: Adam Domby, College of Charleston Shmulik Nili, Northwestern University Shari Rabin, Oberlin College Magda Teter, Fordham University Thursday, January 21, 2021, 7:00 p.m. via Zoom Nostalgia:   On the longing for an imagined past   Panelists:  Joshua Friedman, North Carolina State University Rachel Gross, San Francisco State University Charles A.

Working Memory: The Present Day Uses of the Jewish Past

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM, Online

Nostalgia: On the Longing for an Imagined Past   (Second in a two-part discussion series on "Working Memory: The Present Day Uses of the Jewish Past") Panelists:  Joshua Friedman, North Carolina State University Rachel Gross, San Francisco State University Charles A. McDonald, Northwestern University This discussion series is presented as the 2021 Manfred H. Vogel Lecture in Judaic Studies ____________________________________________________________________________________________ In the Jewish tradition (as in any tradition), collective memory is not merely a sterile recall of past events --it is a conveyer of meaning, a way of selecting, shaping, and transmitting the values and commitments of the past in order to shape the present and future. Recent scholarship in the fields of Jewish and Israel Studies has taken this insight in innovative and provocative new directions.  Over the course of two panel discussions, some of today's leading scholars will discuss the ways in which Jewish memory has been crafted, augmented, instrumentalized, and contested: from debates over how to memorialize antisemitism in pre-modern Europe, to Jewish perspectives on Confederate memory in the southern US, and to the rise of nostalgia as a modern Jewish mitzvah.
