This space is for Black-identified** students, faculty members, and staff to engage in guided soulfulness mindfulness, African-centered healing strategies, and dialogue to promote collective healing. We invite Black students, faculty members, and staff to connect, breathe, and heal in a space designed specifically for them.
**Black, African, African American, Afro-Latinx, Afro-Caribbean, or the African Diaspora

Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.
Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it. Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling. Would like to consult with a CS staff member about what actual therapy looks like. Would like to meet with one of our CS identity-based specialists. Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.
How does Let’s Talk work?
Let’s Talk will be offered via Zoom and/or in satellite locations across campus. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.

Professor Jessica Anna, University of Pittsburgh Elucidating Photoinduced Processes and Ultrafast Dynamics of Natural Light Harvesting Complexes and Model Systems
Photosynthetic organisms have developed the molecular level machinery to efficiently and effectively harvest solar energy. To accomplish this, they use natural multichromophoric assemblies called light harvesting complexes to absorb photons and transfer the excitation energy to reaction centers where charge separation can take place with a high quantum efficiency. Elucidating the mechanism of energy transfer and electron transfer in these complexes is essential to (1) understanding their high quantum efficiencies and subsequently (2) incorporating this information into design principles for artificial photosynthetic systems and photocatalysts. However, given the complexity of natural light harvesting complexes, there are still questions regarding the mechanism of energy and electron transfer in these systems. In this talk I will discuss our recent studies in this area where we apply ultrafast pump-probe and multidimensional spectroscopies in the visible and mid-IR spectral regions to photosystem I, a large natural light harvesting complex, and structurally simpler model systems that mimic specific properties of light harvesting complexes, including artificial light harvesting chromophores, isolated cofactors, and transition metal complexes. From our studies we gain insight into pathways of energy equilibration among different electronic states, information on solvation dynamics, and insight into how non-covalent interactions and spatial confinement can act to alter the properties and dynamics of molecules.
Chambers is the Director of Equity, Inclusion, and Innovation at the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Reception at 3:30 p.m. Talk begins at 4:00 p.m.
Admission to the event is free and open to the public.

Part 2: "Menace to Society"
Lecture by Louis Warren, University of California, Davis.
The Annual Pierson Lecture is a Department of History tradition that spans back to 1993, when it was founded to honor Stan and Joan Pierson. The Piersons were both exemplary citizens of the community, dedicated to history and education as proven by their distinguished records of intellectual accomplishment and community involvement. This lecture series brings distinguished scholars to the University of Oregon, so that they may share their work in alignment with the Piersons’ interests in cultural, intellectual, and political life.
The Italian word “propaganda” originally referred to advertisements for consumer products, not political misinformation. But with the rise of the Fascism, propaganda assumed its modern definition: the marketing of politics. Throughout Benito Mussolini’s dictatorship (1922-1945), advertising shaped autocracy, and vice-versa. We often think of Fascist propaganda in two dimensions, picturing posters and newsreels. But because the regime created powerful incentives for private businesses to support state dictates, propaganda included architecture, fashion, and even children’s toys. Today, the far-right deploys new kinds of propaganda, using generative AI and deep fakes, to attract new followers. From Fascism to Neo-Fascism, the most powerful forms of propaganda surround voters with alternate realities.
This speaker series brings together four scholars who have studied Italian Fascist and Neo-Fascist propaganda to understand how it creates this total environment, and how to see through it. "Where Monsters are Born," a lecture by Professor Brian Griffith documents a Fascist revival in the streets of Rome, 2018-19.
