SPH PUBLIC HEALTH FORUM—Slow Learners: Cross-Border Lessons in Healthcare Reform

SPH PUBLIC HEALTH FORUM—Slow Learners: Cross-Border Lessons in Healthcare Reform

Various measures suggest that, despite sharp contrasts in system architecture, both the US and Canada lag many peer nations in healthcare performance indicators. David Naylor will review some of the lessons that the US and Canada might have learned from each other to mutual advantage over the last four decades, and argue that many of these principles and models are still relevant to the future of healthcare reform on both sides of the border.

Speaker: C. David Naylor, Professor of Medicine and President Emeritus, University of Toronto. Lecture 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Reception to follow.

Comparative Persianate Aesthetics Symposium

Comparative Persianate Aesthetics Symposium

Comparative Persianate Aesthetics Symposium Boston University 28-29 September 2017 Free and open to the public Our symposium will focus on the changing relationship that literary and historical texts and paintings had to Persian cosmopolitan models in the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries, and how they themselves became starting points for distinctive traditions that drew inspiration from local and regionally-specific cultural practices, including the non-courtly. We will also examine the ways in which vernacular production in turn transformed Persian culture. We will approach this topic through a variety of conceptual frameworks: translation, imitation, hybridity, and innovation, across various humanistic disciplines. Individual papers will discuss textual genres such as epic and love lyrics, images in illustrated manuscripts and albums, practices and performances, in their cultural contexts, but also comparatively. Participants: Amr Ahmed (Harvard University) Chanchal Dadlani (Wake Forest University) Subah Dayal (Tulane University) Farshid Emami (Oberlin College) Emine Fetvaci (Boston University) Thibaut d’Hubert (University of Chicago) Sooyong Kim (Koc University) Selim Kuru (University of Washington, Seattle) Kishwar Rizvi (Yale University) Sunil Sharma (Boston University) Sponsored by the Department of World Languages and Literatures, Department of History of Art and Architecture, BU Center for the Humanities, Center for the Study of Asia, and the Institute for the Study of Muslim Societies and Civilizations
