SAFS postdoctoral researcher Sean Anderson and SAFS professor Trevor Branch are featured in UW Today:
‘Black swan events are rare and surprising occurrences that happen without notice and often wreak havoc on society. The metaphor has been used to describe banking collapses, devastating earthquakes and other major surprises in financial, social and natural systems.
A new analysis by the University of Washington and Simon Fraser University is the first to document that black swan events also occur in animal populations and usually manifest as massive, unexpected die-offs. 

Spring: CHID 270C Graphic Novels & Jewish Memory

Explore the graphic novel as a medium for personal and collective memory making. Ask questions about how visual narratives help tell stories and preserve memories.

The course uses Jewish-authored graphic novels – from Art Spiegelman’s Maus to Vanessa Davis’ Make Me a Woman – to offer a specific focus and context for the history of the art form and universal themes about memory, trauma and belonging.
