Tokyo X Osaka: Asian Urbanism Exploration Seminar — Apply by 2/15/19

The Asian Urbanism Exploration Seminar is back this year! Apply by February 15, 2019

Information Meeting —

1/29, 12:30 to 1:30 PM, Gould 102

2/7, 12-1pm, Gould 102

Dense, populous, dynamic, and vibrant are words often used to characterize the urban landscapes of Asian cities. The fluid matrix of social life, urban spaces, and transportation networks along with proximity of activities and services clearly distinguishes the major Asian cities from their North American counterparts. This traveling seminar will engage in a close-up examination of the urban landscapes of Osaka and Tokyo, two largest and most iconic cities in Japan. Through site visits and on-site exercises, students will explore both the everyday landscapes of Tokyo and Osaka and their iconic structures and spaces. This seminar will enable students to better understand how cities of East Asia support the everyday life of millions of residents and visitors; how they embody and reflect their distinct urban cultures and subcultures; and how they function as complex spatial systems.

Questions? Please contact Jeff Hou — jhou.

Study Abroad in Sweden Summer 2019

Summer 2019 Design/Build Studio in Sweden – “A” Term – June 14th, 2019 – July 14th, 2019

In collaboration with students from HDK-Steneby, a crafts school based in Gothenberg, but physically located in Dals Langed, we will collaborate to create a landmark sculptural observation tower, as a feature that provides an identity and wayfinding mechanism for the community.

The feature should reflect the craft traditions of the area. A design has already been vetted and approved by the authorities and local non-profit supporting the project. Students will spend up to a week finalizing the details and three weeks to build it. This feature will build off of work completed last summer: a sauna, outdoor kitchen and a gathering area that is located close to the site.

We will live and study in Dals Langed and use the HDK-Steneby facilities for accommodation, eating and classes. The Dals Langed environment is one of renowned natural beauty and is rural in character, with extensive lakes, canals and woodlands. It is heavily populated by refugees from Syria.

The students will learn about issues of immigration, displacement and assimilation and the perspectives of the refugees and host Swedish populations. The lens, through which we will be viewing and learning about the global issues of refugee migration, will be unique and authentic.

In addition to participating in this collaborative project, we will visit Stockholm, the largest city in Sweden, with wonderful historic buildings, contemporary squares and plazas and world class museums. We will also visit Gothenburg, the second largest city in Sweden, to tour the historic fabric, visit the re-known craft museums and sections of the city under-going urban revitalization. Additional field trips will include canoeing and kayaking the Dals Langed historic canal system and hiking the surrounding hills and forests.

Students’ room, board and field trips are covered by the program fee. Students airfare is not covered by the program.

Please see attached poster.

Applications are due January 31st, 2019. All students are welcome to apply. There will be three Information Meetings: Tuesday, Jan. 15th, 2019, Noon, Gould Hall, Room 312; Thursday, Jan. 17th, 2019, Noon, Gould Hall Room 312; Wednesday, Jan. 23rd, 2019, 12:30 pm, Gould Hall Room 312.

Missing Maps service project for the MLK Day of Service, Sunday Jan 20th 1pm Anderson 207 Forest Club Room

Please join us for our annual Missing Maps service project for the MLK Day of Service, to honor Dr. King’s life and legacy of compassion and service.

The Red Cross needs maps to find and aid people affected by natural disasters (like Hurricane Irma) or diseases (such as Malaria or Ebola). Many of the affected places aren’t currently on any map, so we can help people thousands of miles away just by looking at aerial photos and drawing the roads and buildings that we see. Responders really do use these maps, and our work helps a lot!

No experience is necessary, and all you need to bring is a laptop (though a charger and mouse are really nice to have)!

The event will be this coming Sunday, 1/20 at 1pm, and we hope you can join us for an hour or two. And bring a friend! The event is at UW’s Anderson Hall room 207, see this link for a precise map (

Thanks, and hope to see you there!

Fish and Wildlife Ecology Seminar – Monday (1/14/19) 3pm

Eric Regehr PhD, Polar Science Center UW, will be presenting this Monday (1/14/19) from 3-4 pm in the Physics and Astronomy Tower, Room C520.

Title: Chukchi Sea polar bears: doing well (for now) despite climate change

Abstract: In 2008, polar bears (Ursus maritimus) were listed as threatened range-wide under the U.S. Endangered Species Act (ESA) due to loss of sea-ice habitat resulting from climate change. Today, the status of the world’s 19 polar bear subpopulations is variable: some are declining, others are stable or increasing, and many lack reliable scientific data. The Chukchi Sea (CS) is a biologically productive region west of Alaska that is home to one of two polar bear subpopulations that occurs partially in the U.S. Recent research suggests that the CS subpopulation contains nearly 3,000 animals and that, to date, bears have maintained good body condition and reproduction despite sea-ice loss. In 2018 this information was used to increase the sustainable level of subsistence harvest, which provides nutritional and cultural benefits to Native people in Alaska and Chukotka.

In this presentation, Dr. Eric Regehr (Polar Science Center, University of Washington) will present the latest information on the CS subpopulation including why it appears to be doing well, how to harvest a threatened species, what it’s like to live on a Russian island with hundreds of polar bears, and why good news in the near term doesn’t change the negative outlook for these animals in the long term.
