5/3/13 Reception & Film Screening – David France’s “How to Survive A Plague”

In observance of the 20th anniversary of the 1993 March on Washington and to kick off the 40th anniversary celebration of the LGBTA, we will be hosting a screening of David France’s critically acclaimed documentary film, “How to Survive a Plague,” preface by a reception, with refreshments provided by the Alumni Association and followed by a panel discussion to help localized and share the history of the crisis here at Stony Brook. 

We hope the event will create space for a rich and powerful conversation about the history of the beginning of the AIDS epidemic here at Stony Brook, and/or in the greater Long Island/New York community. 

5pm – Reception, The Poetry Center (2nd Floor of the Humanities Building) refreshments provided by Stony Brook University Alumni Association

7pm – Screening of David France’s “How to Survive…,” Lecture Hall HUM 1006
“HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE is the story of two coalitions—ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group)—whose activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition. Despite having no scientific training, these self-made activists infiltrated the pharmaceutical industry and helped identify promising new drugs, moving them from experimental trials to patients in record time. With unfettered access to a treasure trove of never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and ’90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer smack in the middle of the controversial actions, the heated meetings, the heartbreaking failures, and the exultant breakthroughs of heroes in the making.” – http://surviveaplague.com/synopsis

Stony Brook Southampton Lecture Series 2013 – 4/5 Dr. Chris Gobler

STONY BROOK SOUTHAMPTON SPRING 2013 PUBLIC LECTURE SERIES

“Hurricanes, Heat Waves, Harmful Algal Blooms: What is the fate of Long Island’s Coastal Ecosystems as they Confront the New Normal?” Dr. Chris Gobler Stony Brook University

Friday April 5, 2013 at 7:30 p.m

Southampton_lecture_20130405

The year 2012 was remarkable for Long Island. Hurricane Sandy brought unparalleled 

devastation, including the loss the human life. Within the South Shore Estuary Reserve, 

sewage treatment plants were compromised by the storm, permitting hundreds of 

millions of gallons of raw sewage to spill into waterways and closing shellfish beds for 

more than three months. The storm created three new barrier island inlets, one of 

which is now wider than the Shinnecock Inlet. Beyond the storm, the spring of 2012 

brought the hottest water temperatures on record (dating to 1850) and began a 

succession of harmful algal blooms that closed >10,000 acres of shellfish beds, acidified 

estuarine waters, and were responsible for the deaths of finfish, shellfish, and even 

pets. These blooms were supported by land derived nitrogen loading that increases 

annually suggesting these events may intensify. This presentation will review these 

occurrences, their interconnected nature, their lasting impact, and options for 

mitigating them and protecting coastal resources as Long Island confronts threats that 

may become more common or more intense in the near future.

 

All lectures will be held at Duke Lecture Hall- Chancellor’s Hall Southampton Campus

The lecture will be preceded and followed by a reception
