Jim is back to amaze us with his ability to read poetry from his memory. Jim has memorized many poems for which he will recite to us. Some are classic favorites and some are his creations.

A quote from our staff regarding a visit by Jim:

“Rose Schnitzer Manor would like to send a BIG Thank You To Jim for his presentation at our community on September 5th. Jim not only told wonderful stories, he thrilled his audience with his beautiful poetic talents as well. His presentation was delightful. We look forward to seeing Jim again in the near future. Thank you again Jim, for that wonderful event!” Shelley T., Community Outreach Coordinator, Cedar Sinai Park, Portland

Aging in Southwestern Sri Lanka: Care, Property and Intergenerational Exchange

Tuesday, November 3, 6:45-7:45pm

“Aging in Southwestern Sri Lanka: Care, Property and Intergenerational Exchange”

With Michele Ruth Gamburd, Portland State UniversityMichele profile picture

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.

In this presentation, Michele Ruth Gamburd examines how Sri Lankan families handle intergenerational transfers of property, money, and care. Through ethnographic data gathered in Southwestern Sri Lanka in 2009, she explores the norms and expectations that govern the treatment of elders, including the care of distant relatives. She examines local debates over acceptable and unacceptable forms of elder care, including conversations about newly emerging old age homes. She will conclude with some thoughts on how the demographic transition and current migratory patterns may challenge and change cultural norms about kinship and care.

Michele Ruth Gamburd is Professor and Chair of Anthropology at Portland State University. A cultural anthropologist, she received her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 1995. She is the author of The Kitchen Spoon’s Handle: Transnationalism and Sri Lanka’s Migrant Housemaids (2000), Breaking the Ashes: The Culture of Illicit Liquor in Sri Lanka (2008) and The Golden Wave: Culture and Politics after Sri Lanka’s Tsunami Disaster (2013). She is co-editor (with Dennis B. McGilvray) of Tsunami Recovery in Sri Lanka: Ethnic and Regional Dimensions (2010).
