20th Annual Stegner Symposium – Air Quality: Health, Energy and Economics @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Theater
Mar 5 – Mar 6 all-day
20th Annual Stegner Symposium – Air Quality: Health, Energy and Economics @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Theater | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The Stegner Center’s twentieth annual symposium focuses on Air Quality: Health, Energy, and Economics. Across the nation, great strides have been made addressing air pollution over the last several decades, especially following adoption of the federal Clean Air Act in 1970. Nevertheless, in the West and elsewhere, air quality remains a vexing environmental, economic, and public health dilemma. Families in polluted areas face asthma and other health risks, businesses choose not to locate because of air quality concerns, and the overall quality of life is diminished. This Symposium will examine the multifaceted problem of air pollution, with panels and speakers addressing its causes, health and environmental impacts, tensions with energy needs and economic development, its relationship with social structures and ethics, and possible legal and regulatory solutions. The Symposium, as usual, is interdisciplinary, with speakers from the sciences and social sciences, academia, government, industry, and the legal profession.

Imagining Global Health with Justice: Lessons from the Ebola Epidemic @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Mar 10 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Imagining Global Health with Justice: Lessons from the Ebola Epidemic @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The West African Ebola epidemic caused tens of thousands of deaths, many of them avoidable. Global governance for health during the epidemic has been deeply criticized for the delays, lack of coordination, and insufficient resources. It has also highlighted the deep problems caused by fragile health systems. The Ebola epidemic has become a pivotal moment for the World Health Organization, spurring its need for fundamental reform. This public lecture will search for the lessons learned from Ebola, as well as the appropriate roles for international organizations such as the WHO, World Bank, and United Nations Security Council. Ebola has transformed the way the international community thinks about epidemic diseases. What will the global future look like, particularly for the World Health Organization?

Risk and Retroactivity in Energy and Environmental Law @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Mar 12 @ 1:15 pm – 2:30 pm
Risk and Retroactivity in Energy and Environmental Law @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

This talk begins with the U.S. regulatory response to Japan’s Fukushima disaster, considering the role of risk perception and regulatory structure in prompting U.S. efforts to integrate lessons learned. The context spotlights particular features of retroactivity in nuclear power regulation, which are commonplace notwithstanding administrative law’s general reluctance to embrace retroactivity. The talk uses this particular context to develop insights for retroactivity and regulatory disaster response that might be applied to energy and environmental law more broadly.

Artist Talk: William Lamson @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts

Artist Talk: William Lamson
Tuesday, March 31 | 7pm | FREE

Last fall the Friends of Contemporary Art (FoCA) continued their annual tradition of acquiring a new artwork for the UMFA’s permanent collection of modern and contemporary art. Over an evening of dinner and dancing, FoCA members viewed and debated the merits of three potential acquisitions. Ultimately, the group voted to acquire a video work titled Untitled (Mylar) (2011) by New York-based artist William Lamson. Filmed in the Mojajave Desert, the silent video captures the brilliant reflections of a Mylar blanket as it is pushed, rolled, folded and carried by the wind across the arid landscape.

Restoring the Colorado River: A New Perspective @ Dumke Auditorium – University of Utah Museum of Fine Arts
Apr 1 @ 8:00 pm
Restoring the Colorado River: A New Perspective @ Dumke Auditorium – University of Utah Museum of Fine Arts | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Please join us on Wednesday, April 1st for a provocative lecture from Dan Beard, former Commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation and author of the new book, “Deadbeat Dams: Why We Should Abolish the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and Tear Down Glen Canyon Dam.”

Beard reveals the desperate need to change western water policies and exposes the public to the lack of common sense, corruption, and utter waste of taxpayers’ money that he witnessed over a long government career spanning three decades. The faults of the present system of federally assisted water management efforts are amply detailed, and an agenda for reform is provided that can be used as ammunition by a new generation of water reformers.
