One Month Away! CRE Lecture “From Baldwin to Biggie: An Anthropological Look at Cultural Heroes and Prophetic Voices in Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Between the World and Me”

“From Baldwin to Biggie: An Anthropological Look at Cultural Heroes and Prophetic Voices in Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Between the World and Me,” November 14 at 7pm in McDaniel Hall, Room 101

In his exposition and excavation of African diaspora through his own, and shared and common lived experiences Coates locates cultural models in the likely areas of music and literature, genres with significant oral traditions themselves linked to cultural curation and preservation. In this short ethnographic study of his memoir, ethnomusicological, literary, legal, and other anthropological lenses will focus Coates’ narrative into a musical playlist and a reading list that, like Coates, acknowledges histories in order to reimagine, or remix, futures.

Maria McMath is a cultural anthropologist, educator, and research design professional who currently acts as coordinator of a National Science Foundation grant that seeks to retain women/of color in STEM/SBS fields at Adams State University.

It’s National Cybersecurity Month!

Now in its 15th year, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) — observed every October — was created to help everyone have the resources to stay safe and secure online. This year’s NCSAM theme is Our Shared Responsibility.

We lead internet-connected, digital lives. From our desks and homes to on-the-go, we work, learn and play online. Even when we are not directly connected to the internet, our critical infrastructure — the vast, worldwide connection of computers, data, and websites supporting our everyday lives through financial transactions, transportation systems, healthcare records, emergency response systems, personal communications and more — impacts everyone. No individual, business or government entity is solely responsible for securing the internet. Everyone has a role in securing their part of cyberspace, including the devices and networks they use. Individual actions have a collective impact and when we use the internet safely, we make it more secure for everyone. If each of us does our part — implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating young people, or training employees — we will be a digital society safer and more resistant from attacks and more resilient if an attack occurs.

Throughout the month, we’ll provide some videos and other resources to get you thinking about what you can do to protect yourself and the university online.

An excellent first step in protecting your privacy is selecting strong passwords.

Passwords should be long and strong, instead of short and sweet, with a combination of lower/uppercase letters, numbers, and special characters. With all of these requirements, how do you choose a strong password that’s easy to remember? Check out this quick video for some tips: youtube.com/watch?v=IhlXtBNNuKs

Just as important as choosing a strong password is using unique passwords for EVERY site you visit. That way, even if a site is compromised, that password cannot be used to access your bank, credit cards, or social media sites.

For more tips and tricks in choosing and remembering good passwords, including a secure way (hint: it’s not a post-it note!) to store them, check out our Password Tips on our how-to: howto.adams.edu/Password_Tips

IMPORTANT: It is a violation of ASU policy to share your password with anyone. This includes logging in to a computer with your ASU account and letting someone else to use your workstation. All employees, including work studies, should use their own account.
Computing Services is here to help you with cybersecurity and answer any questions you may have. Feel free to contact us at (719) 587-7741, computingservices@adams.edu, or stop by our offices in the Computing Services building.

Common Read Event – Whose Bodies Count – Oct 9th!

The campus community is invited to a discussion event by Edward Crowther and Jess Gagliardi, on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 7pm in MCD101.

In conjunction with the Common Reading Experience Committee and the 2018-2019 common read, Between the World and Me by Ta-Nihisi Coates, Crowther and Gagliardi have prepared a discussion titled, “Whose Bodies Count: Identity and Ethnicity in the United States.”

In his epistolary memoir Between the World and Me,Ta-Nehisi Coates’ exposes white supremacy, the core singular value in the United States, and its destructive and ultimately deadly effects on black bodies. The commodification and exploitation of non-white, non-hetero, and non-male bodies is the central theme of United States History, whether one examines the murder of First Nations Peoples, the saga of African Americans, the marginalization of LBGTQIA+, the ongoing denigration of women of all ethnicities and classes, or the myriad other bodily destruction inflicted on the bodies of “others.” By focusing on the special white exploitation of black bodies, this discussion highlights the on-going power of white, heteronormative supremacy to block efforts to celebrate diversity and achieve social justice.

We hope you are able to join us the evening of Oct. 9.
