The In Light Film Festival is aimed at promoting and supporting the intersections of human rights and documentary film. Documentary films have long been used as effective teaching aids and as tools for public debate on contemporary socio-political issues. ILFF aims to facilitate dialogue between professionals in the field of human- rights documentaries and the general public. Q&A sessions with invited filmmakers will thus be a central focus of ILFF. The debates will be moderated by IU scholars whose research intersects with the focus of each film. Furthermore, the IU Cinema will also host a series of ILFF free roundtables where the invited documentarists and IU faculty will discuss documentary film and human rights.

The Political Ecology of Water: Human-Water Relationships in a
THURSDAY, MARCH 5TH – NOON TO
"This is an important interdisciplinary work that uses a
place-based approach to examine human relationships with water in the context
of globalisation.... [T]he detailed explorations of the human propensity to
continue to engage in devastating practices with water, and whether social and
environmental justice movements can do anything about these practices is
insightful.....[W]hat Kane has to say is worthwhile; she illuminates the
struggles that lay people face in getting juridical institutions to implement
the law to protect waters in a precautionary manner." —Environmental Politics
PROFESSOR STEPHANIE KANE
The science of
climate change introduced dramatic uncertainty into human-water relationships,
destabilized established protocols of storm prediction, complicated the design
and operation of flood control systems, and should stretch the time frame of
environmental impact assessment. Based on her fall 2014 ethnographic research
among engineers and geographers in the urbanized wet prairielands of Manitoba, Professor Kane will discuss the possibilities and limits
of incorporating “known unknowns” into technical traditions.
discussions begin at noon in the conference room at the Global Center
(International Programs, 201 N. Indiana Avenue). Feel free to bring your lunch
(coffee, cookies provided).

"Gender Ideology in North Africa and the Middle East"
Monday, March 2, 2015
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
CSME Building, 1105 E Atwater, Bloomington, IN 47401
van der Does (Department of Sociology and Department of Statistics, IUB)
examines Muslim men living in predominantly Muslim Middle Eastern and North
African countries and their overcompensation of support for more traditional
gender attitudes, as a result of living under different conditions of
insecurity. Using two waves of the Arab Barometer data, she
investigates if Islamic religiosity mediates this relationship and how women
differ in their results. What interesting patterns emerge? Is there change in
the influence of religiosity on gender with the rise of the Arab Spring unrest?
America, the Caribbean and Contemporary Cuba” is an introductory course on
issues related to the physical and human geography of Latin America and the
Caribbean, with emphasis on the human component, and particular emphasis on
Cuba. The course is for 3 credits and takes place the first 6-weeks
summer session of 2015 from May 13 through June 20th on the IU
campus in Bloomington with 2 weeks of field activities in Cuba from May 31st
to June 14 with the final paper due by email or through Oncourse on June
17th. Within a regional overview of the course that anchors various
disciplines across space and place, the course brings dominant political,
economic, social and environmental issues facing Latin America, the Caribbean
and Cuba and teaches students the basic tools with which to analyze them.
The greatest emphasis of this course is on contemporary Cuba, an island
nation-state with a unique geographical and historical context, a state
socialist political and economic system and disproportionate significance in
regional and global affairs.
Field work in Cuba will primarily take place in Santa Clara, but also includes
Havana, Remedios, Sagua la Grande, the beaches of Cayo de las Brujas (Islands
of the Witches), Jibacoa (coastal community). Excursions will include an
agricultural cooperative, ecological resort and mangrove forests on the coast,
the educational, medical and social institutions, the Che Guevara Memorial,
Regional Communist Party Headquarters, various museums of art, history and
music, historical sites of the revolution, tours of local nature including a
boat trip on Rio Nedgro and Lake Hanabanilla, and much more! (See
