Presented by Liu Yongmou, Renmin University of China, and Alfred Nordmann, Technical University Darmstadt Berthoud Hall 241 One of the most contentious issues in America today is the relationship between scientific and technological expertise and political power. On one side are those who think scientific knowledge should fundamentally inform politics and technical expertise should guide governmental action. On another are those who maintain that scientists and engineers are just another interest group whose influence in public affairs should be limited.…

As a best practice in instructional design, instructors should be concerned with aligning the three vertices of the CAP triangle: content, assessment, and pedagogy. This presentation delves into what this means in practice, including by drawing examples from various kinds of engineering coursework. Special attention is also paid to assessment, including specific strategies that can be used to evaluate student learning of both technical content and professional competencies. Dr. Brent K.

Recently proposed changes to the accreditation criteria for engineering degree programs directly underscore the need for graduates who are able to “recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments.” But what precisely does this mean, and what can be done to cultivate and evaluate such capabilities? This presentation begins to address such questions by drawing insights from the extant literature and a number of in-progress research projects. Four more specific considerations are highlighted: 1) typical student…

Boettcher Room 219 What constitutes “technological knowledge” in the epoch of industrial automation?In his talk, Yuk Hui questions technological knowledge and the understanding of machines as a form of fixed capital. Instead, as machines move away from factories and into smart phones, smart homes, smart cities, the environmentalization of fixed capital today characterizes new forms of governmentality and capital, as well as new relations between human and machine. In a talk that explores this new understanding of the machine, Hui…

Brown Hall W250 Decolonization -- the post-1945 retreat of Europe's overseas empires and their conversion into independent nation-states in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the Caribbean -- was a world-historical event that ended the Columbian era. It unfolded at a time when the Cold War prompted the United States to think through a "grand strategy" -- arguably for the first time -- for its role in the wider world. Deploying a variety of tools, from military intervention to covert…

Friday, November 17, 2017 2-4 p.m. SC Ballrooms D & E — Refreshments Provided The long history of the U.S. presidency tells us a lot about what makes leaders succeed and fail. Donald Trump’s presidency may be doomed to fail for reasons beyond his ideology or his personality. The presidency itself has become, in a word, impossible. Beginning as a small and uncertain position within a large and sprawling democracy, the presidency has grown over two centuries into a towering…

Hennebach Program presents “Beyond Resource Nationalism: Public-Private Partnerships in Mineral Development” by Saleem Hassan Ali

March 16, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Golden, CO 80401 United States

Resource nationalism is often cited as the most serious risk to foreign mining investment in developing countries. This presentation will consider a comparison of Mongolia and Bolivia as two states which have exhibited different approaches to resource nationalism. In Mongolia, this phenomenon has been exposed mainly through the ever-increasing role of state ownership in major mineral deposits, mostly by direct equity participation. In Bolivia, lithium industrialization under Indigenous President Morales, has cultivated unusual governance arrangements via public private partnerships (PPPs) between…

Hennebach Program presents “Feral Burros in the American West : The Environmental Legacy of the 19th-Century Mining Booms” by Abraham H. Gibson

March 22, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Though far less celebrated than their more glamorous cousins the mustangs, burros (Equus asinus) have played an important role in the settlement of the American West. They enabled humans to access mineral deposits in the region’s most remote places. When improved technology and transportation rendered the burros’ services increasingly superfluous, they were cast off like outdated technology. The animals thrived in the wild, and their population soared. As a result, they were routinely hunted for sport until 1971, when Congress…

The Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences Division at Mines presents Max Boykoff's lecture, "Creative Climate Communication: Assembling, Maintaining, and Contesting Meaning within the Global Public Citizenry." When considering representations of climate change, it is critically important to reach beyond mere ‘news’ reporting on climate change, and also take into account how more creative climate communications shape perspectives, attitudes, intentions, beliefs and behaviors among the public citizenry around the world.

Jon A. Leydens and Juan C. Lucena Present: Catalysts and Eureka Moments: Origins and Functions of Engineering Justice: Transforming Engineering Education and Practice On the surface, engineering and social justice may seem like odd bedfellows. Engineering professionals and educators recognize the social relevance of engineering, including its capacity to positive shape society and communities. Yet many stop short of engaging social justice. Unlike the medical and legal professions, which have had longer histories with social justice praxis, social justice in…

Science fiction and horror films frequently reflect (and sometimes shape) our cultural anxieties about nature. As we work to respond to contemporary environmental issues such as pollution and mass extinction, these pop culture narratives take up such issues both directly and indirectly. Some horror films, for instance, imagine monstrous animals attacking humans (Jaws) or reveal the reveal the dangers of isolated spaces (Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Some science fiction films explore the potential consequences of our current practices of pollution (Wall-E)…
