How to be an Effective Faculty Peer Member jcsm244 Sun, 09/05/2021 - 04:55 pm

Faculty peer mentoring is proven to be beneficial for both mentors and mentees. It can foster new collegial relationships, develop research and teaching skills, improve work-life balance, and create opportunities to meet faculty from other departments or fields. However, it is not easy to build effective faculty mentorship without proper guidelines and appropriate structures that set clear, professional boundaries and accomplish concrete goals.

Please join Sarah Lyon, Associate Dean of Faculty, and Karen Petrone, Director of the Cooperative for the Humanities and Social Sciences, for a workshop that will offer tips and provide resources and strategies to help interested faculty be effective faculty peer mentors.

Undoing Drugs: Harm Reduction, Opioids and the Future of Addiction.

This Q&A about Szalavitz’s forthcoming book, "Undoing Drugs: The Untold Story of Harm Reduction and the Future of Addiction" (Hachette Books, 2021), will explore the history of harm reduction and what it suggests about dealing with the current overdose crisis. It will examine the false narrative that now drives opioid policy and how harm reduction offers both a more accurate and a more effective way to manage drug issues.

“Poppy Politics: Drugs in Afghanistan, Past and Present.”

Bradford will demonstrate that drugs — especially opium — were critical components in the formation and failure of the Afghan state. He will discuss how the country moved from licit supply of the global opium trade to one of the major suppliers of illicit hashish and opium. "Poppies, Politics, and Power: Afghanistan and the Global History of Drugs and Diplomacy" (Cornell University Press, 2019) breaks the conventional modes of national histories that fail to fully encapsulate the global nature of the drug trade by explaining how Afghanistan’s emergence as a major supplier of illicit drugs is tied to broader changes to the global drug market and international drug control. Drawing from his book, Bradford’s talk will explore the global history of opium within the borders of Afghanistan, how the drug trade is tied to the formation of the Afghan state and the future implications of drug production, trade and use in Afghanistan and globally.
