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.

Mental Health and Conflict in Libya

Tuesday, November 10, 6:45-7:45pm

Mental Health and Conflict in LibyaAmanda Lubit

With Amanda Lubit

Qadhafi’s regime in Libya led to decades of oppression, terror, and rivalries. In 2011, a revolution overthrew the regime and pushed the country into a violent conflict. This worsened existing divisions in society and exposed citizens to daily violence, resulting in severe psychological trauma for men, women and children. Amanda Lubit will discuss her work with Libyan psychiatrist, Dr. Omar Reda, to develop programs aimed at reducing hatred and healing psychological wounds.

Amanda Lubit graduated from Portland State University with a Master’s Degree in Anthropology in 2013. She worked with Dr. Omar Reda on conflict transformation and community rehabilitation for war survivors in Libya from 2011 to 2013. Since that time, she has been working with other vulnerable populations in the Portland area. Amanda has developed and overseen mental health and community programs for HIV-positive women and the homeless. She also volunteers her time on a new project looking at recovery following the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal.
