Fast Forward Families: An Anthropology for the 21st Century
Presented by Dr. Jan English-Lueck, Associate Dean of the College of
Social Sciences & Professor of Anthropology, San Jose State University
Anthropologists have long been fascinated with the variety of
configurations people call “a family.” In the late 20th century,
scholars and journalists alike thought the family was on its way out.
However, the family, while not looking like the stereotype of the past,
remains at the heart of human social life. Based on fieldwork
along the West Coast from San Jose to Seattle, and work in the People’s
Republic of China, English-Lueck will talk about how families have
changed, and why they remain so important to society and so interesting
presentation is free and all are welcome.

I highly recommend this
Editorial in the NEW YORK TIMES today about
the Stimulus Packages passed in 2009. It is relevant to political
science and economics both.
I've been saying the same thing for a long time. This is one thing that
George W. Bush and Barack Obama both promoted in different ways and they
were both right. We narrowly dodged a new Great Depression and the
combination of the multiple rounds of stimulus packages and aggressive
stimulus by the FED are what saved us from that fate. That is not to say
that either side of policy functioned in the best way possible, but they
did enormous good. Given the depth of the crises bigger would have been
better on both sides.
