Kathy O’Flynn-Magee, Joan Anderson, Marion Isobelle Clauson, Geertje Boschma, Sheila Rankin Zerr, Catherine Haney, Frances Affleck & Ranjit Dhari
Joan Anderson - Critical Inquiry in a Practice Discipline: History Matters!: In this presentation I discuss how patients’ construction of life stories, obtained through ethnographic research, guided my engagement with different genres of critical inquiry, e.g. feminist and postcolonial feminist theories; and later, critical humanism.

H.G. Wells and Early Soviet Science Fiction

Galya Diment
One of the most fascinating aspects of Wells's relationship with Russia is his rather outsized influence on Soviet science fiction. The talk will pay particular attention to the impact the English writer had on Alexander Belyaev, a pioneer of sci fi in the USSR, author of Professor Dowell's Head (1925) and The Amphibian Man (1928). Wells and Belyaev met during Wells's visit to the Soviet Union in 1934.

"Armenian Genocide : Legacies of Denial"

Maral Attallah
Drawing on the Armenian Genocide, and linking analysis of various genocides of the 20th and 21st centuries, Maral Attalah argues that recognition & reparation (structural recognition) is a necessary aspect of holding active and passive genocide deniers accountable. A call for structural recognition inherently promotes active anti-deniers, those who challenge genocide denial and encourage truth and accountability. The talk discusses the contemporary example of Turkey’s overt denial (active) and the United States’ lack of official...
