In this talk, Nirel highlights a number of convincing reasons why polyamory should be a more widely considered option – this includes its emphasis on transparent communication, compersion, diffusion of economic (and other) responsibilities, and importance of autonomy. From this, Nirel will argue that we need to change our definition of ‘relationship’ to include polyamory and other forms of consensual non-monogamy.

Nirel Marofsky is a student at the University of British Columbia, in the Cognitive Systems program.

In this talk, Jennine Punzalan will argue that the difficulties of time management and the dynamics of student involvement are heavily based on one’s social class. This creates a perpetual cycle where students with lower incomes, who work average part-time jobs, are not recognized due to “unimpressive profiles”, and students who can afford to have the time, are recognized. It’s an aspect of campus involvement that is prevalent, but is not being talked about.

Jennine Punzalan is a student of International Relations and French Honours at the University of British Columbia

In this episode, we do headlines, learn what anthropologists mean by ‘thick description,’ and talk to Robert Klitzman about his new book on the internal review boards that look at research, ‘The Ethics Police?: The Struggle to Make Human Research Safe.’

“There is no required training to be an IRB member. Anyone — you could be an IRB chair tomorrow! Nowhere does it say what the training is or should be. I was startled to learn that sometimes IRB members are volunteered. One women, when she got to her university, she was told everyone in the department is put on her committee, and her committee would be the IRB. And she said: what’s an IRB?’ So again you have, as one colleague put it, “well-meaning amateurs.”
