Half a Century: 50 years of One Hundred Years of Solitude

Location: Rome Global Gateway

November 30 – December 2, 2017

 

Cien años de soledad (1967), by the Nobel laureate Gabriel García-Márquez, is the best-known Latin American novel of the twentieth-century. In recognition of the 50th anniversary of its publication, this symposium will convene its most engaging established and rising scholarly interpreters. This symposium will ask its participants for critical reflection, not homage. After 50 years, 35 translations, and 30 million copies, it is high time for a re-assessment of the cultural politics of this novel. Seeking formulations of and reflections on new questions about the historical, material and philosophical problems that the novel raises, the meeting will have the goal to set a new agenda for the continued study of Latin America’s most prominent novel, one that both reflects on the history of interpretations of the novel and contemplates how the novel can speak to us anew today. …

Climbing the Tree of Philosophy? Physics, Medicine, and Morality in The Passions of the Soul

 

In this paper I aim to identify, disentangle, and relate physical, medical, and moral perspectives on the role of the passions in human life. In one of the prefatory letters to the The Passions of the Soul, Descartes’ “physics” (which includes the study of plants, animals, and humans) is presented as especially relevant to medicine—one of the three principal “branches” of philosophy that sprout from its “trunk” (physics), to employ Descartes’ image of the Tree of Philosophy (also referenced in the prefatory letters of Passions

Clinical and Translational Research and Careers in Health Care: What's it like to be an oncologist?

-

Location: 283 Galvin Life Sciences Center

Interested in clinical research and/or a dual degree in medicine? Join us at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30 to hear from Jose´ A. Bufill, M.D., partner, Michiana Hematology Oncology, PC, and director of the cancer genetics program at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center.

His research and clinical efforts are part of a burgeoning aspect of health care focused on personalized medicine.  Acknowledging that the genetic profiles of tumors can vary across patients, oncologists are increasingly availing themselves of genomic techniques that facilitate the tailoring of cancer therapies to a specific tumor type.  This approach increases the efficacy of cancer treatments and requires physicians to become more intimately involved in ongoing advances in understanding cancer biology.  Such a perspective will undoubtedly characterize the many aspects of health care training experienced by our students in their postgraduate programs.…
