Peter Merrington, novelist and Professor Extraordinaire in the Department of English University of the Western Cape, was guest speaker at UCT's Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA) Great TextsBig Question lecture in September 2010. His illustrated lecture "First Light False Dawn" explores the making of a public cultural identity for a new nation and responds to the first hundred years (1910-2010) of South Africa as a unitary nation state. Merrington explores the meaning of heritage in the late nineteenth century in relation to then popular concepts of vernacular identity in England. He shows how ideas of Englishness influenced the quest for a new South African cultural vernacular and how the young ideologues drew on these ideas for their vision. (less)

Pulmonary hypertension affects millions of patients with increasing prevalence each year, and clinical treatments are still in their infancy. In our latest podcast, Associate Editor Leon de Windt talks with senior author Sebastien Bonnet (Universite Laval) and leading expert Laura Gonzalez Bosc (University of New Mexico) about the article by Paulin et al, which reports the first demonstration of DHEA blocking two major transcription factors퉌„STAT3 and NFAT. Is DHEA, a commercially available natural steroid hormone and antioxidant, the newest entry point for pharmacological intervention and treatment of pulmonary hypertension? Listen in and find out.

This course will help to define abnormal and normal behaviors and to group these abnormal phenomena into 'disorders.' It will cover the basic concepts surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal psychological phenomena. The student will investigate the characteristics, epidemiology, controversy, and treatment of individual disorders. The student will begin by defining normal versus abnormal behavior and reviewing the historical context in which abnormal psychology emerged, then discuss the major theories or paradigms associated with abnormal psychology, the classification system used to differentiate and define disorders, and the research methods often utilized in the study of abnormal psychology. Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to: describe the historical context from which the current conceptualization of abnormal psychology has evolved; identify and describe the main theoretical perspectives/paradigms which have influenced the field of abnormal psychology; identify and differentiate the classification of psychological disorders; evaluate treatment approaches; explain the major research findings for each group of disorders and how they add to our knowledge of the causes and treatment of psychological disorders.

Addressing Social Inequality in Chiapas through Local, Healthy and Clean Foods: An Agroecological View

In Chiapas, one of the poorest states in Mexico, an estimated 150,000 children are malnourished. To end this problem, governments have implemented food security policies, including food importation and industrial food production. In 2008 alone, Mexico imported 20 million tons of food. While these policies certainly help to remedy the problem in the short term, the massive importation of basic foodstuffs and incentives to industrial agriculture may widen social inequality, threaten health and deteriorate biodiversity and ecosystem services. I will present the objectives and achievements of initiatives born in the highlands of Chiapas to enhance local food production free of hazardous pesticides and appropriate to the culture of the region. Examples include the rescue of local knowledge for food production, a school gardens program and the Network of Producers and Consumers for Healthy Local Food. (less)

This Science Update, from Science NetLinks, focuses on one reason why puberty is such a notoriously difficult time for kids. It's a time when the world feels like it's speeding up. According to new research, part of that feeling may come from the fact that adolescents' brains are actually slowing down. Science Updates are audio interviews with scientists and are accompanied by a set of questions as well as links to related Science NetLink lessons and other related resources. (less)
