Thank you to our Veterans!

In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words:

“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”

Today Cedar Sinai Park would like to take a moment to thank its residents and staff who have served their country and to also take a moment to remember those who served who are no longer with us. AMerican Flag

Globalization – Why the Resistance?

Tuesday, November 17, 6:45pm

Globalization – Why the Resistance?

With Mary Soots, Portland State Universitymary-soots-full

Part of the Lecture Series: “Culture Shock: What Margaret Mead Never Told Us” 

The lecture series consists of free lectures in November, which take place on Tuesdays at 6:45 p.m., giving us a glimpse into the practices of diverse cultures from around the world.

International trade has been reported since prehistoric times.  The current globalization brings a new scale of trade with important ramifications.  At the local and national levels, individuals are working to protect their interests, while at the international levels, corporations are protecting their own interests.  Mary Soots explains the roles of three factions of our global society – the Economy, the Government, and Civil Society – in the negotiation of international trade agreements and explains some of the resistance that surrounds these agreements.  She will also explore how relationships between social groups are re-created at different levels through business.

Mary Soots is a Social/Cultural Anthropologist whose research has explored a globalized social mobilization against free trade and neoliberal economic policies.  She holds a graduate degree in Anthropology with undergraduate degrees in International Studies and Anthropology, and minor degrees in Geography and Spanish.  Mary is Adjunct Professor of Anthropology at Portland State University, works in Research and Evaluation at OMSI, and supports government and community organizations through outreach and advocacy with the Hispanic community.
