MATHER MEMORIAL | ROOM 201
The Department of Anthropology Spotlight Lecture Series will feature Dr. John Bing, Founder and Chairmen of ITAP International. The lecture is entitled “The Case for Comparative Quantitative Measures of Cultures: The Many Dimensions of Geert Hofstede.” Light refreshments will be provided.
Dr. John Bing is founder and Chairman of ITAP International, a consulting firm with global operations. His consulting experience spans the Americas, Europe and Africa and the pharmaceutical, consumer product, information technology industries and United Nations Agencies. He designed the original version of ITAP International’s Team Process Questionnaire family of consulting instruments and developed a new version of the Culture in the Workplace Questionnaire, originally created by Geert Hofstede. The field of cross-cultural research and practice has come into its own over the past fifty years, with the work of Geert Hofstede as the exemplar. His extensive published work on dimensions of culture has not been without controversy, but his methodology has prevailed and yielded practical approaches to comparing national cultures that have opened new approaches to learning. This lecture will review his methodological approaches and a practical application of his methodology.

TINKHAM VEALE UNIVERSITY CENTER | SENIOR CLASSROOM
This lecture, co-sponsored with the Schubert Center for Child Studies, is featuring Seinenu Thein-Lemelson, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Scholar, Institute of Personality and Social Research (IPSR), University of California, Berkeley. The lecture is entitled “Fear and Silence in Burma and Indonesia: Comparing Two National Tragedies and Tracing Possible Pathways Towards Resilience.”
There is a growing literature indicating that individuals often respond to traumatic experience with resilience, yet it is not clear what specific factors facilitate recovery. In particular, it has been challenging to identify the larger historical, structural, political, and cultural factors that predict individual outcome in the context of life-span development. This lecture will discuss the comparative case analysis of two historic national tragedies in Southeast Asia: one in Burma, the other in Indonesia. The two case studies illuminate how the social and political landscape, following traumatic events, can be shaped to allow victims of trauma to thrive, rather than recede into silence.

MATHER MEMORIAL 201
This seminar, co-sponsored with the Schubert Center for Child Studies, is featuring Robert Lemelson, Ph.D., Research Anthropologist, UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience; Associate Adjunct Professor, UCLA; Department of Anthropology; President, Foundation for Psychocultural Research, Kepala Desa, Elemental Productions. The seminar is entitled “Afflictions: Steps Towards and Integration of Visual, Medical and Psychological Anthropology.”
The ubiquity and inexpensive quality of visual technologies is revolutionizing social science, including Anthropology. But while most anthropologists conducting fieldwork use some form of visual technology in their practice, few do it in a disciplined and systematic way. This seminar will focus the theory and practice of a proposed new subfield in Anthropology entitled Visual Psychological Anthropology, and will be centered around issues involved in the creation of a six part documentary series entitled “Afflictions: Culture.”
