Identifying patterns of appraising tests in first-year college students: Implications for anxiety and emotion regulation during test taking. In a lot of ways I haven’t done maybe what other folks who would follow a particular substance or material or type of being would do, which would be to kind of literally follow it. I don’t want that kind of move to thinking about bacteria who can successfully biodegrade plastics as a kind of excuse for the rampant production of plastics across the world. And it helps us to give a much more expansive sense of what kin and caretaking and relationality might mean in the world outside of just the kind of reproduction of sameness that we often kind of see it as. Bioplastics for the most part are cellulose-based plastics, meaning that they are plastics that are produced not with any kind of fossil fuel as their source or their base. A technofix that still is intractably seduced by oil and the ways in which oil can transform the world is certainly not going to help us because we’ve basically created these like sealed-off barriers where everything that we surround ourselves with is plastic. So basically when you produce plastic, it goes through this whole kind of procedure. And is this a way to try to be able to map to see where the plastics are originating from, which companies are most responsible, etc. It’s more just like, you know, you’re making a bunch of stuff on a factory floor and there’s still that drain that goes into the Lake. Even if some of our material conditions have to really be rethought or maybe because some of our material conditions have to be rethought it allows us the opportunity to then rethink relations in a way that I think is much more deeply engaging. The other thing that was really interesting was that the public in general kind of had to be taught to be consumers, especially in relationship to the ways that we think about consumption nowadays, which is that you buy something and throw it away, right? And I think in your work you’re also very clear about questioning who the “we” is. Manifold was one of those rare individuals who was truly a scholar and a gentleman. Their, This "Cited by" count includes citations to the following articles in Scholar. Merged citations. She averaged 5.3 kills per game with a .333 hitting percentage. I mean in a way governments have to…. So, polyethylene for example, is a fairly benign plastic, whereas polyvinyl chloride or anything that has a chloride monomer in it, in relationship to plastics is incredibly carcinogenic. It can’t depend on individual choices. Because of that, the project isn’t a kind of distanced critique. Heather Davis is an assistant professor of Culture and Media at Eugene Lang College, The New School, in New York. Hormones regulate virtually everything in our bodies. Those things were becoming increasingly rare but also increasingly in demand. H Davis, M Chang, CE Andrzejewski, R Poirier, C DiStefano, PA Schutz. I think one of the other things that’s important in terms of scientific and artistic collaborations is that from an artistic point of view, I think you don’t want to be saying things that are not accurate. And everything in it was made from plastic, the cushions, the wall coverings, the paints, the housewares, everything. You know, coming from a feminist point of view, I feel like it’s incredibly important to kind of root oneself in context that you can actually speak to with some degree of authority. So we went and did mapping on the shorelines of the Great Lakes to try to figure out how much plastic was in the Great Lakes. And so, they thought, is there another way to make a similar kind of structure? Curriculum Vitae. So feminism for me has always been a justice oriented approach to thinking in the world and to acting in the world. Location: Geffen Hall, Suite 305 Telephone Number: (310) 794-7016 Fax Number: (310) 794-7465 US Mailing Location: UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine University of California, Los Angeles 885 Tiverton Drive, Suite 305 And to the literal new beings that exist in the world because of the pervasiveness of plastic. And so for those of us who are entangled with the plastics industry, then we are also entangled with the emergence of these new forms of life. You mentioned a feminist approach. And so this is the history of the very early plastics, the non-fossil fuel-based plastics. And the technoscientific fix of being able to, you know, possibly breed bacteria, that these are false solutions. The other thing about a kind of feminist approach is that I think that there’s a kind of attention to not taking things for granted from the outset, but really trying to look for the kinds of ties and connections that one might think of as something like a situated knowledge. It’s February 14, 2020 and we’re in New York City speaking with Heather Davis. It’s sort of this long procedure where you get a bunch of chemicals. The scholar will be a full-time employee of the National Registry, while receiving fully funded tuition towards completion of an approved doctoral program, through a partnership with The Ohio State … h-davis@shepherd.k12.mt.us Todays young people are living in an exciting time, with an increasingly diverse society, new technologies and expanding opportunities. So primarily in the United States, the companies are in the places where there are oil refineries. One is that, from the feminist perspective then to me this brings to mind the question of justice. So sometimes they get shipped in container ships, sometimes they’re put on railway lines. Things like, we should ban PVCs. We need to stash and hoard food. Also in terms of our work with the Synthetic Collective, primarily we’re interested in plastic pollution in the Great Lakes, because not a lot of people have done a lot of work on plastic pollution in the Great Lakes. So you’re talking about the production of a particular kind of subject that comes about because of the plastic industry. So how did plastic become so pervasive so fast? Everything in it was this very kind of curved, sleek surfaces of plastic. This episode is produced by Ben Montoya, Josh Allen, Wanda Acosta, Alex Guillen, Hannah Tardie, and Elaine Gan. Thank you for joining us today, Heather. And because of that, it meant that a lot of those animals were being hunted to endangerment. It can be kind of transportable or transposable as a kind of object. That the kind of plastic actually matters a lot. That’s what people are trying to do, right? Patricia was originally kind of very like, Oh, that sucks, what am I going to say about geology in relationship to this? Certainly the very early plastics, so things like celluloid or Bakelite or Parkesine, all of these kinds of early primarily non-fossil fuel-based plastics. They’re easy to clean. But we might also want to be paying attention to the ways in which things can survive and potentially even thrive under conditions of toxicity. It’s maybe not as clear-cut as that in real life, but I think it’s at least a helpful way to begin to disentangle who is responsible for this set of conditions and who has really sort of been both not responsible for, but who has received, these sets of conditions whether they liked it or not. Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts is an academic space that defies tradition. And there’s lots of materially important differences between various types of plastics, primarily in terms of toxicity levels. It’s not like we wouldn’t have conflicts or everything would be rosy all the time, but I think that there would be a way of being with each other that would give us a lot of nourishment that we might not know that we’re lacking. The following articles are merged in Scholar. Working in this capacity gave her unparalleled access to key decision-makers in the legal profession – from Am Law 200 managing and marketing partners to general counsel of Fortune 500 companies. There are vast islands of plastics floating in the oceans. Yeah, I think in that regard, I often think of it as more akin to the geologic rather than to biologic timescales because it really does exist more on the timescales of something like fossil fuels or exists more on the timescales of various kinds of rocks. And I think it really doesn’t address the real fundamental issue, which is that, you know, when you think back there was a proposition in the 60s, I think it was, called the Monsanto House. Then it was only after the Second World War that they were transferred into kind of domestic everyday products or household items. That’s primarily how it happens, at least as far as we understand up until this moment. And from a scientific point of view, I think one of the problems is that people are often quite alienated by scientific language and scientific discourse, and the ways in which science disseminates information. Together, they were the people who named the new rock plastic formation, the plastiglomerate. Heather is the former Managing Editor of Best Lawyers’ annual peer review guide and U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Law Firms” rankings. You know, there’s all kinds of much more practical means of really thinking through this in terms of, you know, extended producer responsibility laws and various other kinds of things. If you know what they look like, they’re really easy to spot because they’re so perfect in their composition. And Michelle Murphy has this really beautiful concept of latency and she talks about the ways in which petrochemicals, plastics included in them because of these plasticizers primarily is that the effects on the human body, the toxic effects on the human body might not be seen within your lifetime. It’s an insulating material. In this episode, Sarain talks to scholars Zoe Todd and Heather Davis about decolonizing the Anthropocene. One of the things that I’ve been really interested in is, how do we think about feminist and queer theory in relationship to this set of very entangled problems? So I mean, I’m sympathetic to trying to come up with solutions in the kind of short term for the replacement of particular kinds of goods. 2020 Happenings, News. Thank you so much. They’re false solutions in the sense that they are not going to solve the problems of microplastics in waterways, for example. So it’s a very different kind of environment to think with. So one would assume that plastic is best studied by chemical scientists and engineers and industrial designers. You know, there’s a growing call for interdisciplinary approaches or multidisciplinary approaches, so this mix of scientific-artistic methods that might help us look at issues as large as plastic differently. Little Scholars Village was founded by Heather Davis, who has a background as a special education teacher and has started two schools in Wappingers Falls and one in Texas. They’re just the kind of dream team of really wonderful, incredibly smart people and very easy to work with. And those things are very much indebted to a kind of feminist and queer take on the world, especially for queer subjects who never took family structures or biological family structures as necessarily the places of care or reproduction to begin with. The lab is made possible by the Green Grants program of New York University’s Office of Sustainability and NYU Center for Experimental Humanities and Social Engagement. Dr. Heather A. Davis is an Associate Professor in the Department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Counselor Education at North Carolina State University. You talk about the differences between the kinds of plastic that are around. Heather Davis-Remacle, PA-C, joined Tri-State Family Practice & Internal Medicine in June 2018. So there’s all kinds of things that you can see if you employ this kind of multi-perspectival approach that really allows for each of us to draw deep into our own training in order to approach this object. So I think that one of the really strong characteristics of these kinds of art-science collaborations is that you can disseminate similar information to different sets of audiences and it can be seen in different ways in different places. And especially plastic bags that were used for dry cleaning. Dr. Davis’s book projects include two co-edited volumes “Art in the Anthropocene: Encounters Among Aesthetics, Politics, Environments and Epistemologies” published in 2015 and “Desire Change: Contemporary Feminist Art in Canada” published in 2017. So evolutionary time is bumping up against geologic time when you think about plastics, because it’s really a matter of how much time is necessary for various kinds of organisms to take advantage of the fact that plastic is everywhere. And I’m thinking primarily of the American context here and in that context, people really did have to be taught. One of the things that you find out when you start researching plastics is that they sort of appear as if we have some kind of conceptualization that they’re surrounding us because of some kind of consumer desire or demand, that they’re fulfilling some kind of need that we didn’t even know that we had. In response to this, there was a huge kind of public outrage and the first response by the public was that plastic bags were evil and bad. They also argue that the queering of the body is not a form of harm. They’re very identifiable. Ken Chitwood, Religion Scholar, University of Florida "Heather Choate Davis & Leann Luchinger bravely examine some of the Church’s most divisive and challenging words— words such as “sin”, “confess”, “repent, “submit” — and carefully unpack their meaning for the appreciation of believers and non-believers alike. 89(45%) received no therapy, 43(22%) incomplete therapy, 51(26%) complete therapy, 8(4%) surgery only, and 6(3%) therapy followed by surgery. Table 18 Regression Results for the Relation of Diagnostic Status to Parenting Stress as Mediated by Hyperactivity - "The Relation of Hyperactivity to Parenting Stress within the Parent-Child Relationship in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders" But those were increasingly in demand. Clearly one of the kind of fundamental issues with plastic is how to think about time differently. So either a fracking plant or an oil plant or something along those lines. And he was saying that the skills that are going to be some of the most useful in addition to being able to grow food and those kinds of practical things is also really thinking about community building. The most well-known of these is BPA. Maybe we should think about stopping the production of plastics altogether and trying to figure out ways of recomposing the plastics that already exist in the world. And I think that that world is a very hopeful world, right? Heather has 4 jobs listed on their profile. How might that help us think about collaborative survival or multispecies worldbuilding. Heather Davis is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Arts and Humanities at Pennsylvania State University, where she is working on a project that traces the ethology of plastic as a materialization of the philosophic division of the subject and object. You kind of swish them around a container under extremely high pressures, often with certain degrees of heat. Another, another source of inspiration for thinking about the relationships of time is to think about Christina Sharpe’s residency time and she thinks about that as the amount of time that it takes for a body –and she’s specifically thinking about the people who were captured and enslaved in the transatlantic slave trade and the people who either fell or jumped or were pushed overboard, and how long their bodies took to enter and exit the oceanic system. About. So it’s a kind of bacterialization of life and a kind of orientation to a kind of queer bacterial formation. So you know, mealworms have existed for a long period of time, but the bacteria that are in their stomachs that can digest polyethylene and styrofoam, those are new. So thinking about writing in the same way that other people might think about filmmaking or other kinds of practices. That’s an interesting story. Aside from all of the carbon that would then be released back into the atmosphere as a result of doing that. So what are the hydrological cycles in the lakes that would maybe make it so that certain plastics end up in certain areas and none end up in other places. So most plastics production facilities are companies with a hundred employees or less. It’s very difficult to transport those two petrochemical substances. Their combined citations are counted only for the first article. Let’s talk about your work with plastic. I doubt that this will happen. But then the collective wanted to bring this to a wider public. She explores and participates in expanded art practices that bring together researchers, activists, and community members to enact social change. Plastic certainly teaches us that the world is fundamentally different than what it once was. That is a much better use of your time if you actually care about plastic packaging. This can be everything from neurological disorders to cancers to diabetes to early onset senility to a whole host of other issues and problems. There’s all kinds of ways in which we have to think about time differently. And one of the ways in which I do this in my longer book project is through a kind of differentiation between inheritance and transmission. But the actual production of plastics is done in these much more small-scale, often family-owned businesses, but they do have to be located next to oil or natural gas refineries. Heather Davis, Chair of the Board of Directors for the National Registry "Dr. Heather Davis is an itinerant researcher and writer. We have to seriously consider that we’re responsible for the creation of these beings. And it’s because there’s so much plastic on the beach that if you just have a kind of innocent campfire, then that is how these rocks are formed. The following articles are merged in Scholar. One of my colleagues said to me the other day that he was reading a news article and it was saying that the things that we’re really going to need if there is a kind of climate breakdown or maybe more like when there is a climate breakdown or if there’s a kind of radical shift in the ways in which our societies are composed, that one of the skills that’s going to be, you know, often people think about like, Oh, we need to like stash and hoard water. They should be banned and we shouldn’t have them anymore. Since nobody had really studied this before from any perspective really, and also because we thought it would be an easier policy demand in terms of really thinking about pollution in relationship to plastic, we decided to first go out and map where all these plastic pellets are ending up. There was a lot of deaths that were associated with plastic bags, first of all, because people would use them to line their cribs for their babies, which made a lot of sense because they’re water-resistant and so it makes a lot of sense. It seems like a dream interdisciplinary project. Is that still a possibility? Any vinyl, basically anything from vinyl pants that you might want to wear or a vinyl couch or anything that’s made with PVC, which also includes things like shower curtains at this point in time. So, you know, I have this kind of binary system. Anything that’s made of PVC or any kind of vinyl monomer in its production is both incredibly toxic to the consumers and also especially to the people who are producing those plastics in the first place. In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer holds a virtual discussion with a few of the organizers of the second annual Faith and Film Festival, which is set for Jan. 28-29, 2021. That’s the kind of thing that we can do with the kind of geologic surveys that Patricia taught us how to do. So it doesn’t address the production of a subject or our relations to materiality where we really think about things as ultimately disposable or a subject that really interacts with the world and with matter as something that’s inherently ephemeral. They’re produced from a cellulose structure from plants. But I’m thinking about, what would it mean for those of us who are more the inheritors of plastic to take on the responsibilities of living with its toxicity? And you can really see this in relationship to plastics. We add the plasticizers in order to be able to achieve those qualities from the outset. So we actually don’t want bacteria to run rampant and eat all the plastics that already exist. It also got picked up in the New York Times. So they up in the Great Lakes because there are a bunch of these factories that surround the Great Lakes because there’s actually a lot of oil refineries around the Great Lakes or particularly around Detroit and Sarnia. So in a way we’re also needing multiple kinds of theoretical lenses to talk about what’s happening. Billions of pounds of plastic are produced and thrown out every year. And so I think that one of the things that climate change really affords us an opportunity to do is to really radically rethink our relationships to things. Which sort of puts plastic into perspective, as not always all bad or not always all good, that it’s always produced in certain kinds of relationships. For the plastic, it’s in order to do things like, you know, make something black or hard or heat-resistant or whatever other kinds of qualities, we want that plastic object to have.
