Dan Flores the A. B. Hammond Professor Emeritus of Western History at the University of Montana, will give a talk entitled:

“Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural History” (based on his recent book of the same title)

at 7:00PM Tuesday, February 6th in the Screening Room, Cornerstone Arts Building

Legends don’t come close to capturing the incredible story of the coyote in North America. In the face of centuries of campaigns of annihilation employing guns, gases, helicopters, and engineered epidemics, coyotes haven’t just survived, they’ve thrived, expanding across the continent from Alaska to New York. In the war between humans and coyotes, coyotes have won, hands-down. “Coyote America” is the illuminating five-million-year biography of this extraordinary animal, from its origins to its apotheosis.

Contesting Medicine, Managing Risk, and Preserving Childhoods in the Age of Medical Uncertainty

Vanessa Lopes Muñoz
Assistant Professor of Sociology-

Scholars note that medicine is increasingly focused on managing risk or preventing future ill health rather than treating existing symptoms and disease. Muñoz uses the case of childhood food allergies, a condition that is primarily about managing exposure to common foods, to examine people’s experiences with managing health risks in daily life. She draws from interviews with parents of children with food allergies and their medical providers as well as clinic and school observations to examine how caregivers balance medical uncertainty, social disruption, and risk in daily life.
