ALARM – Responding to our Climate Emergency @ THEMUSEUM
Jan 24 – Sep 27 all-day

Four Exhibits | One Planet (with a dead bee on the left) On June 24, 2019 the City of Kitchener council unanimously declared a climate emergency and we are sounding the ALARM. It is time to take Action and Learn about our effects on climate. We must Adapt our lifestyles, take Responsibility and Mobilize climate action now!

THEMUSEUM looks to use its stage to shine a light on the efforts being done to help conserve a natural climate and make transformative connections to what individuals, corporations and governments must do to chart a new course of optimism for the future.

The anchor, Agents For Change | Facing the Anthropocene, co-curated by Nina Czegledy and Jane Tingley features ten interdisciplinary women artists working on the theme of ecological change at the intersection of science, technology, and art. ALARM will also explore the impact on the melting polar ice caps, water, climate refugees and a family exhibition exploring at-risk species with a focus on the dwindling frog population as they approach the sixth mass extinction.

Canadian Political Economy: Cutting Edge Issues and Debates
Jan 31 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

This special workshop will introduce the forthcoming book Canadian Political Economy (Heather Whiteside, ed., University of Toronto Press) and will reflect on the field of Canadian Political Economy (CPE) more broadly. In the book, experts from a number of disciplinary backgrounds come together to explore Canada’s empirical political economy and the field’s contributions to theory and debate. Considering both historical and contemporary approaches to CPE, the contributors pay particular attention to key actors and institutions, as well as developments in Canadian political-economic policies and practices, explored through themes of changes, crises, and conflicts in CPE. Offering up-to-date interpretations, analyses, and descriptions, Canadian Political Economy is accessibly written and suitable for students and scholars. Through 17 chapters, the book’s topics include theory, history, inequality, work, free trade and fair trade, co-operatives, banking and finance, the environment, indigeneity, and the gendered politics of political economy. Linking longstanding debates with current developments, this volume represents both a state-of-the-discipline and a state-of-the-art contribution to scholarship.
The workshop will feature eight of the chapter contributors, focusing on the following themes in CPE:
Angela Carter, Waterloo: resource exploitation and environmental concerns
Bryan Evans, Ryerson: public sector restructuring
Carlo Fanelli, York: urban processes
John Peters, Laurentian: rising inequality
Julie MacArthur, Auckland: social economy and co-operatives
Heather Whiteside, Waterloo: theory and debate
Peter Graefe, McMaster: social policy transformations
Stephen McBride, McMaster: continental integration
The workshop will ask where CPE is going, what’s missing, and what’s needed for future research. We look forward to audience participation and a lively discussion of issues both current and longstanding.

Bechtel Lecture in Anabaptist-Mennonite Studies: Film Screening @ CGR
Jan 31 @ 7:30 pm – 7:30 pm

“Food & Faith: Mennonites Farming Locally and Globally”

Mennonite sociologist Winfield Fretz called farming the ‘sacred vocation.’  Even though fewer and fewer Mennonites are involved in it, we are all dependent on, if not blessed by it.  We used to talk together about farming and faith a lot more when more of us were farmers.  Maybe it’s time to talk again. 

Public Lecture | January 31 at 7:30 PM | Conrad Grebel University College
‘Seven Points on Earth: Film and discussion with Paul Plett’

Filmmaker Paul Plett captured the lives of seven Mennonites farming in Manitoba, Iowa, Bolivia, Netherlands, Zimbabwe, Siberia and Indonesia. His film offers an unprecedented look at Mennonite farming and faith around the world. Come view the film and engage in discussion with Paul.

This event is free. Please register to reserve your space.

Press Release

Bechtel Lectures in Anabaptist-Mennonite Studies

The Bechtel Lectures in Anabaptist-Mennonite Studies were established in 2000 through the generosity of Lester Bechtel. As a devoted churchman with an active interest in Mennonite history, Lester’s dream was to make the academic world of research and study accessible to a broader constituency and to build bridges of understanding between the academy and the church. This lecture series provides a forum through which the core meaning and values of the Anabaptist-Mennonite faith and heritage might be communicated to a diverse audience and be kept relevant and connected to the rapidly changing world of our day.

The Bechtel Lectures provide the opportunity for representatives of a variety of disciplines and professions to explore topics that reflect the breadth and depth of Mennonite history, identity, faith and culture. Conrad Grebel University College is pleased to host this annual event.

The Nationalistic and Populist Shift in Politics and National Commercial Policies: A Global Perspective
Feb 3 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Often discussions of trade policy during the recent populist era focus either on the United States or on the Sino-U.S. trade war. Bearing in mind that governments can learn from and can react to each other’s trade policy choices, in this presentation Simon Evenett takes a different tack. A systematic, broader comparison of the recent populist episode is presented, interpreted, and questions raised about our understanding of the contemporary political economy of trade policy.
About the speaker
Simon Evenett is Professor of International Trade and Economic Development and MBA Director at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. He has taught at the Said Business School at the University of Oxford, the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan (where he was a Visiting Professor of Corporate Strategy three times), and Rutgers University. In addition, Prof. Evenett has served as a World Bank official twice, has been a Non-Resident Senior Fellow in the Economics Studies program of the Brookings Institution, and a member of the UK Competition Commission. Recently, he was the DLA Piper Distinguished Visiting Professor at the Carey School of Business, Johns Hopkins University.
Professor Evenett specializes in studying how governments tilt the commercial playing field in favour of local firms. At the start of the Global Financial Crisis, he created the Global Trade Alert initiative, the leading independent monitor of protectionism and commercial policy choice. He holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Yale University and a B.A. (Hons) in Economics from the University of Cambridge. He has written over 200 articles, book chapters, and volumes.

Escaping the Frame: Migrant Workers (from Indonesia) in the Margins of Development (in Dubai)
Feb 5 @ 11:45 am – 1:00 pm

The Indonesian government focuses substantial and increasing regulatory attention on low-income overseas migrant workers during their pre-departure training and visa registration periods within Indonesia. Its migration apparatus is again active in managing and surveilling workers during their return journeys into the nation’s territory. However, the state’s migration apparatus tends to turn a blind eye to migrant workers while they are abroad. According to interviews with Indonesian migration officials, the lack of overseas capacity is entrenched in lack of infrastructure and resources, as well as geopolitical subordination to the states of labor recipient countries. For many migrant workers, this lack of state attention is not only a welcome relief, but indeed is actively sought through efforts to escape the gaze of both labor sending and receiving states. This talk examines migrants’ desires to escape state regulation in contrast with national rhetoric about the need to “strengthen state capacity” vis-à-vis migrants for the sake of development. It discusses the implications of this case for theorizing the postcolonial labor sending state’s role in transnational migration politics.
About the speaker
Rachel Silvey is a professor in the Department of Geography and Planning at the University of Toronto, and the Richard Charles Lee Director of the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs. She received her Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Washington, Seattle, and a dual B.A. from the University of California at Santa Cruz in Environmental Studies and Southeast Asian Studies. Her research focuses on gender, labour and migration with a specialization in Indonesia. She has published in the fields of migration studies, cultural and political geography, gender studies, and critical development studies. Major funded research projects have focused on migration, gender, social networks, and economic development in Indonesia; immigration and employment among Southeast Asian-Americans; migration and marginalization in Bangladesh and Indonesia; religion, rights and migrant women workers in Saudi Arabia; labor sending states in the global care economy; and most recently the climate/migration nexus.

Social Practices of Rule-Making for International Law in the Cyber Domain
Feb 6 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

In 2013, despite deteriorating relations between Russia and the United States and increased global contention over cybersecurity issues, participating states in the First Committee of the United Nations General Assembly agreed on a landmark report endorsing the applicability of existing international law to state military use of information technology. Given these conditions, the timing of this agreement was surprising. Mark Raymond argues that state representatives engaged in a rule-governed social practice of applying old rules to new cases, and that the procedural rules governing this practice help to explain the existence, timing and form of the agreement. They also help to explain further agreements expressed in a follow-on report issued in 2015. The case study findings presented here demonstrate that social practices of rule-making are simultaneously rule-governed and politically contested, and that outcomes of these processes have been shaped by specialized rules for making, interpreting and applying rules. The effectiveness of procedural rules in shaping the outcome of a contentious, complex global security issue suggests that such rules are likely to matter even more in simpler cases dealing with less contentious issues.
About the speaker
Mark Raymond (@MRaymondonIR) is the Wick Cary Assistant Professor of International Security and Director of the Cyber Governance and Policy Center at the University of Oklahoma. He is an External Affiliate of the Ostrom Workshop at Indiana University, and a Fellow with the Center for Democracy and Technology, and was previously a Carnegie Fellow at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. He is the author of Social Practices of Rule-Making in World Politics (New York: Oxford University Press, 2019). His work appears in various academic journals including International Theory, Strategic Studies Quarterly, The Cyber Defense Review, the UC Davis Law Review, and the Georgetown Journal of International Affairs. He is also the co-editor of Organized Chaos: Reimagining the Internet (Waterloo, Canada: CIGI, 2014). He has served as a senior advisor to the United States Cyberspace Solarium Commission, testified before the United Nations Commission on Science and Technology for Development, and participated in the UN Internet Governance Forum. His current research projects examine the politics of global rule-making, as well as Internet governance and cybersecurity governance. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto.
