Mark Winne recently published his third book, entitled Stand Together or Starve Alone: Unity and Chaos in the U.S. Food Movement. Winne has decades of experience in food system work, having served as head of the non-profit Hartford Food System for 24 years before becoming a consultant on community food system topics including hunger and food insecurity, local and regional agriculture, and food policy. Since 2013 he has advised the Food Policy Networks project at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future. Winne has also authored Closing the Food Gap (2008) and Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners, and Smart Cookin’ Mamas (2010). To learn more about Winne, visit

About Stand Together:
In Stand Together or Starve Alone, Mark Winne takes a critical look at the U.S. food movement. For all its successes in creating farmers’ markets, farm-to-school projects and other such food system interventions, Winne says the movement needs to be honest about its shortcomings – the most glaring of which is the frequent failures to collaborate among the various players in the movement. But, Winne doesn’t just critique the movement; he offers concrete suggestions for improving its effectiveness. He also highlights the successes of food policy councils, coalitions, and  state charters, using collective impact and other strategies at the state and local level. A panel discussion will follow the book talk.

Event Image  Special Workshop co-sponsored by SOURCE: Using Critical Reflection to Deepen Learning
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

This special workshop, co-sponsored by CTL with the Student Outreach Resource Center (SOURCE), will examine implementing and facilitating the practice of critical reflection in curriculum design towards deepening student comprehension.  In addition to distinguishing "high quality" reflection, the session will allow us to recognize pedagogical methods and readily-available resources and tools that support critical reflection. Join us to learn more about the practice as you are also introduced to the SOURCE Faculty Fellows Program.
Liang Xiao "Cycles on the special fiber of some Shimura varieties and Tate conjecture
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM


Speaker: Liang Xiao (U. Connecticut) Abstract: We describe the irreducible components of the basic locus of Shimura varieties of Hodge type at a place with good reduction, when the basic locus is of middle dimension. Under certain genericity condition, we show that they generate the Tate classes of the special fiber of the Shimura varieties. This is a joint work with Xinwen Zhu.

Kengo Hirachi “Q and Q-prime curvature in conformal and CR geometry.”
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM


Speaker: Kengo Hirachi JAMI Lecture Series Abstract: Q-curvature is a generalization of scalar curvature in the context of conformal geometry, which becomes one of the main object of the study after its discovery due to Tom Branson in 1992. Q-curvature in CR geometry was introduced around the same time in the study of the Szego kernel; but it also turns out that Q vanishes in many cases. For such cases, we can define Q-prime curvature as a secondary invariant. In these lectures, we give an introduction to Q and Q-prime by touching the following subjects: the Bergman and Szego kernels, Fefferman’s parabolic invariant theory, Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand complex, Fefferman-Graham ambient metric, GJMS operators, renormalized volume.
