Revolt! – A Conference On/In Upheaval

Posted by Tim on March 11, 2019 in Event, Student Clubs

Attention Undergraduates,

The UB Undergraduate English Club is hosting the Fifth Annual
Undergraduate English Conference and is now seeking undergraduate
submissions for presentation. The theme for the conference is revolutions,
uprisings, and upheavals of all kinds, across historical periods and
disciplines. We welcome submissions examining revolutions or radical
change from historical, literary, anthropological, philosophical, or
other points of view. An ideal paper presentation might rely on Marxist
literary theory to relate an important work of literature to its social
setting, or compare historical instances of major political change to the
contemporary moment, for example.

The conference will be held on Friday, April 26 from 12pm to 6pm in
Clemens 120. Light refreshments will be served, and attendance is open to
all students and the public. A 250-300 word abstract will be due by
midnight on Friday, March 15. All abstracts should be emailed as a .doc or
.docx file to


UB School of Medicine Mentoring Opportunity with Honors Alums

Posted by Tim on March 4, 2019 in Academics, Community Announcements, Event, Graduate School Programs, Networking, Workshops

On March 27th at 6:00pm, there will be a medical student-run mentoring event for Honors College premedical students at the Downtown campus (Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences).

The event will be in 1225A. When you arrive at the medical campus, you will buzz in and sign in at the front desk since the entire campus is swipe access only.

This event will include a presentation from myself (Cullan) and other first-year medical students giving advice, resources, and generalized tips about the process of applying to medical school. The pre-health committee is a fantastic resource, however, our goal is to give more of an insider perspective with students who have recently gone through the process. The end will be an informal Q&A session, so be sure to bring some questions for us!

FREE PIZZA will be provided!

Click on the link below and enter your name into the google spreadsheet so we can get an accurate count of who is interested in coming. We hope to see you there!

Moral Machines: The Ethical Dilemmas of Self‐Driving Cars

Abstract: With the rapid approach of self-driving cars, we are poised to yield autonomy to millions of machines that will have the power over life and death. The road to this future has a bright promise, but as we are beginning to see, there are numerous psychological roadblocks. Many of these involve thorny ethical challenges that come when the moral decisions that are today made by individual drivers are turned over to preprogrammed algorithms. How should these cars be programmed to mete out risks to the various people on road? Who determines the ethics of these algorithms? I will discuss the recent work with my collaborators on the social psychology and legal implications of these moral machines.

Bio: Azim Shariff is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia where he holds the Canada 150 Research Chair of Moral Psychology. His research on morality, religion, and technology has appeared in top academic journals such as Science and Nature and received global media coverage. He has presented this work in The New York Times, Scientific American, and at the Aspen Ideas Festival. He teaches a free Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) on The Science of Religion for the public through edX.
