Talk | How Extended Family Health Affect Household Portfolio Allocations


Jermaine Toney of Cornell University talks about growing research that links household financial decisions and health status within the nuclear family. However, the focus on the nuclear family underestimates the health-wealth effect. Wealth can decline by as much as $14,000 when a sibling with low income experiences stroke, cancer, lung disease, or a heart attack. Panel data shows mental health status of siblings affects a households’ portfolio choice decisions.

Opening Reception | Parade Unrest: The Confederate Monument Controversy


An exhibition of Confederate monuments rendered as 19th century tintypes. In the wake of the events in Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017, documentary photographer Robert Kalman wanted to uncover a story that would help further his own understanding of how objects of stone and metal could elicit an emotional response so passionate as to result in violence, injury and death. He sought to understand the diverse points of view about the monuments as expressed by proponents desiring to preserve them, and by those who demanded their removal.

Book Club | John Wyndham's Chocky


David Gore becomes rather concerned that his son of twelve, Matthew, is a bit old to have an imaginary friend. His concerns deepen as his son becomes increasingly distressed and blames it on arguments with this unseen companion, which he calls "Chocky". As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that the friend is far from imaginary, but is an alien consciousness communicating with Matthew's mind—a fact that is of intense interest to shadowy government forces.. John Wyndham Parkes Lucas Beynon Harris (1903-1969) was an English science fiction writer best known for his works written using the pen name John Wyndham, although he also used other combinations of his names, such as John Beynon and Lucas Parkes. Some of his works were set in post-apocalyptic landscapes. His best known works include The Day of the Triffids (1951) and The Midwich Cuckoos (1957), the latter filmed twice as Village of the Damned. Please read the book before arriving at the book discussion.

Staged Reading | The House of Piñatas: Conversion Backlash


When Dabney Hutchin’s mother offers to send him to a course of homosexual conversion therapy, he goes along for the ride hoping to get his mother and her Catholic friends off his back. In an abandoned mall in the Poconos, in the old “House of Piñatas,” newly minted therapist Dr. Margaret Fullerton leads her clients through an identity bleaching process as her mentor, Dr. Charles Harbison, watches behind a two-way mirror. But Dabney fails to get it, so the therapists pull out all the stops in a ritualistic Aztec ceremony designed to purge the urge vis-à-vis some carefully orchestrated whacks of the piñata stick. Written by Kathryn Grant.
