Mar 7 @ 7:00 pm
“Save Everything!: Reflections of a Historian on Archives of the Future” @ J. Willard Marriott Library | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Aileen H. Clyde 20TH Century Women’s  Legacy Archive Lecture
For centuries, historians have been using primary source material preserved in archives—drawings, texts, artifacts of material culture, and more—to shape their narratives of the past. How has the digital turn changed the ways historians now interact with primary sources? How has the availability of vast quantities of digital data shaped the nature of historical research? And what is the future of the archive in the digital era? Please join Dean Dianne Harris as she discusses this topic from her perspective as an architectural and urban historian.

Jung Society of Utah Presents “The Shadow Dance of the Feminine and Masculine” @ Salt Air Room at the University of Utah
Mar 19 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Jung Society of Utah Presents "The Shadow Dance of the Feminine and Masculine" @ Salt Air Room at the University of Utah |  |  |

“Except for the point, the still point, there would be no dance, and there is only the dance.“
– T.S. Eliot

Carl Jung believed that the culmination of the Soul’s journey is the integration of opposites within the psyche: feminine/masculine; conscious/unconscious; divine/human. Each of us, regardless of our gender identity or sexual preference, must grapple with the inner dance of Feminine and Masculine energies in our search for wholeness and the well-lived life.

This movement from opposition to paradox is no easy task. The journey is often littered with inner and outer conflicts, positive and negative projections, longings, and disappointments, as we find our way out of the madness, confusion, and darkness of opposing values, desires, ideals and possibilities, into the evolutionary leap of the Sacred Inner Marriage.

Join us for an evening of myth, dreaming, storytelling, poetry, lecture and dialogue as we explore the creative, transformative, and visionary potential of the Conscious Feminine and Masculine within each of us. We will investigate how the Feminine and Masculine archetypes, in both their positive and negative aspects, inform our sense of meaning, purpose and wholeness, the quality of our relationships, and our ability to tend to the “soul of the world” in the face of seemingly insurmountable global dilemmas.

Theresa Holleran L.C.S.W is a Depth Psychotherapist, teacher, and facilitator with over 40 years experience. She has taught graduate courses in Transpersonal Psychology, Eco-psychology, and Process Work, and has co-created national and international retreats and sacred journeys in both urban and wilderness settings on themes of embodied healing and transformation, suffering, wisdom and resilience, and the Sacred Inner Marriage. She currently works with individuals, relationships, groups and communities in her private group practice at Mountain Lotus Counseling in Salt Lake City. Her work is predicated on knowing that each person has an inherent destiny that can be revealed through the exploration of the unconscious and its effects on consciousness and that personal individuation is directly tied to the fate of our planet.

Date: March 9, 2017
Time: 7pm-9pm with mingling before and after.
Please become a member to support the Jung Society events.

This lecture is in conjunction with the Wallace Stegner Center 22nd Annual Symposium

“Good government, if it comes, will emerge out of a heightened sense of the ways citizens are linked and interdependent; it will draw upon new recognitions of community and the ways we are the same, not different; it will gain strength when people talk more of the common good as a matter of public morality and of obligations of all people to cooperate as well as compete.” – Eric Freyfogle

Water in the West: Exploring Untapped Solutions - Wallace Stegner Center 22nd Annual Symposium @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The Stegner Center’s 22nd Annual Symposium, to be held March 23 to 24, 2017, will focus on “Water in the West: Untapped Solutions.” The symposium will address how the twin drivers of climate disruption and demographic change are likely to impact water availability in the West over the next 50 years.

With these challenges as a backdrop, the Stegner Center’s solution-oriented symposium will focus on practical solutions to problems. Specifically, the Symposium will address four sets of issues: changing law—legal innovations to address these issues; changing science and the role of technology in improving data-driven water resource planning and management; changing infrastructure and new approaches like recycling wastewater; and changing behaviors—creating incentives that bring about the changes needed to respond to a dynamic world. The symposium will be interdisciplinary in nature and include speakers from the physical, biological and social sciences, academia, government, industry, public interest organizations, and the legal profession.

The Bystander Dilemma – Utah Law Review Symposium @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Mar 31 @ 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
The Bystander Dilemma - Utah Law Review Symposium @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

Past, present, and future, the world is full of opportunities for bystanders to take meaningful action to prevent horrific crimes. Yet, far too often bystanders remain complacent. In Nazi Germany, an untold number of bystanders watched as millions were subjected to the most heinous treatment in the history of the modern world. Today, bystanders have an opportunity to prevent atrocities from being thrust onto victims. Whether they are refugees from Syria or college freshmen on our own campuses, bystanders have an opportunity to act; yet, they often choose not to.

Inspired by University of Utah College of Law Professor Amos Guiora’s forthcoming book, The Crime of Complicity: The Bystander in the Holocaust, the Utah Law Review is pleased to announce its 2016/2017 Symposium: The Bystander Dilemma: The Holocaust, War Crimes, And Sexual Assaults. The symposium will critically examine the legal and moral obligations of bystanders. The symposium will be held throughout the day on March 31st, 2017.

The symposium will first consider bystanders during the Holocaust. No other tragedy can highlight the bystander dilemma like the Holocaust, because so many individuals had an opportunity to act; but most failed. The Holocaust panel will be composed of leading academics, professionals, and theologians to address the bystander dilemma and provide a context for the remainder of the symposium.

The following two panels will consider the bystander dilemma in the context of modern day War Crimes and sexual assaults. These panels, also, will be led by leading academics and professionals. For a complete list of the distinguished speakers contributing to the symposium, please see the attached enclosure.

S.J. Quinney College of Law Dean and Jefferson B. and Rita E. Forham Presidential Professor Robert Adler will provide opening remarks. A keynote address will be given by University Professor and Professor of Law Jeremy Waldon of New York University.

The symposium is open to the public and all are invited and encouraged to join. Furthermore, the distinguished speakers will publish articles in a symposium issue of the Utah Law Review. The symposium issue will include an article written by Harvard Law School Dean and Morgan and Helen Chu Professor of Law Martha Minow.
