“Big Hunger” Book Talk and Signing
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

Andy Fisher is a leading national expert on community food security. In 1994, he co-founded the Community Food Security Coalition, a national alliance of groups working on food access and local food, and he led that organization until 2011. During this time, he created and publicized the concept of community food security, and played a key role in building the food movement. He has worked on a wide variety of food system topics, including food policy councils, community food assessments, healthy corner stores, coalition building, and farm-to-cafeteria. He has taught at various universities in Oregon, and is an adjunct instructor in the public health department at Portland State University.

Room W5030

About Big Hunger:

In Big Hunger,” Andy Fisher takes a critical look at the business of hunger and offers a new vision for the anti-hunger movement. From one perspective, anti-hunger leaders have been extraordinarily effective. Food charity is embedded in American civil society, and federal food programs have remained intact while other anti-poverty programs have been eliminated or slashed. But anti-hunger advocates – reliant on corporations for donations of food and money – are leaving out an essential element of the problem: economic inequality driven by the low wages that corporations pay.

Xin Zhou"Min-max theory for constant mean curvature (CMC) hypersurfaces"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Xin Zhou, (UC Santa Barbara) Abstract: In this talk, I will present constructions of closed CMC hypersurfaces using min-max method. In particular, given any closed Riemannian manifold, I will show the existence of closed CMC hypersurfaces of any prescribed mean curvature. This is a joint work with Jonathan Zhu.
Viktoriya Ozornova "2-Segal Spaces."
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Viktoriya Ozornova, Bonn University Abstract: Dyckerhoff-Kapranov and independently Galvez-Kock-Tonks observed that many simplicial spaces arising in different contexts fail to be Segal spaces, but still satisfy a related condition, now called "2-Segal condition". In particular, they observed that the result of a certain Waldhausen S_{\bullet}-construction for exact categories has this property. In a joint work with Bergner, Osorno, Rovelli, Scheimbauer, we slightly modified this construction to see that any unital 2-Segal set arises by this construction. In an ongoing project, we are promoting this result to a Quillen equivalence for unital 2-Segal spaces.
