Black Hole with Marcia Bartusiak

Gazette Events - Thu, 05/21/2015 - 19:30
Phillips Auditorium, 60 Garden St., Cambridge
Thu., May 21, 2015, 7:30 p.m.



For more than half a century, physicists and astronomers engaged in heated dispute over the possibility of black holes in the universe. The weirdly alien notion of a space-time abyss from which nothing escapes - not even light - seemed to confound all logic. This engrossing book tells the story of the fierce black hole debates and the contributions of Einstein, Hawking, and other leading thinkers who completely altered our view of the cosmos. Marcia Bartusiak's numerous works include "The Day We Found the Universe," "Archives of the Universe," and "Einstein's Unfinished Symphony."

Call for Abstracts: 2015 Annual Conference Law, Religion, and American Healthcare

Gazette Events - Fri, 05/08/2015 - 00:00
Wasserstein Hall, Milstein East BC
1585 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA
Fri., May 8 – Sat., May 9, 2015

The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School is pleased to announce plans for our 2015 annual conference, this year entitled: “Law, Religion, and American Health Care.”

Conference Description

Religion and medicine have historically gone hand in hand, but increasingly have come into conflict in the U.S. as health care has become both more secular and more heavily regulated. Law has a dual role here, simultaneously generating conflict between religion and health care, for example through new coverage mandates or legally permissible medical interventions that violate religious norms, while also acting as a tool for religious accommodation and protection of conscience.

This conference, and anticipated edited volume, will aim to: (1) identify the various ways in which law intersects with religion and health care in the United States; (2) understand the role of law in creating or mediating conflict between religion and health care; and (3) explore potential legal solutions to allow religion and health care to simultaneously flourish in a culturally diverse nation.

Call for Abstracts

We welcome submissions on both broad conceptual questions and more specific policy issues. We hope to receive abstracts related to the conference’s general theme even if a particular topic was not specifically listed here. However, proposals that lack a clear linkage to all three aspects of the conference – law, religion, and health care – will not be considered. Law will be treated broadly to include governmental policy decisions more generally. Abstracts must propose or outline an argument/position, rather than merely stating a topic, in order to enable us to evaluate them.

In an effort to encourage interdisciplinary and international dialogue, we welcome submissions from legal scholars and lawyers, of course, but also from bioethicists, philosophers, scholars of religion and religious studies, clinicians, government officials and staff, international scholars and regulators discussing how their systems have handled these issues, and others who have a meaningful contribution to make on this topic. We welcome submissions from advocacy organizations, think tanks, and others outside academia, but emphasize that this is a scholarly conference, and abstracts/papers will be held to academic standards of argumentation and support.

How to Participate

If you are interested in participating, please send a 1-page abstract of the paper you would plan to present to petrie-flom@law.harvard.edu as soon as possible, but not later than December 1, 2014. If your abstract is selected, your final paper will be due on April 3, 2015, and you will be assigned a presentation slot for the conference dates. Please note that presenters are expected to attend the conference for its full duration. We will pay travel expenses for presenters who must travel to Cambridge; co-authored papers must name a single presenter.

In the past, we have successfully turned several of our conferences into edited volumes (e.g., with Oxford, MIT, Columbia, and Johns Hopkins University presses). If such a volume arises out of this conference, our expectation is that conference presenters will publish their papers with us as part of the edited volume. Those who do not wish their work to appear in a potential edited volume should so indicate on the abstract. We will accept conference papers of all lengths and styles (e.g., law review, medical, philosophy, or policy journal, etc.), but chapters in conference volumes are generally limited to about 5,000 words. Previous conference participants have been able to publish their submissions in different formats in multiple venues, for example both as a short book chapter and a longer law review article.

How to Register

Registration information is available at: events.r20.constantcontact.com…. Attendance is free and open to the public, but space is limited.

HDS Episcopal/Anglican Fellowship Weekly Worship

Gazette Events - Mon, 05/04/2015 - 12:00
Andover Chapel, 45 Francis Ave.
Mon., May 4, 2015, 12 – 1 p.m.

The Episcopal/Anglican Fellowship is a group made up of Harvard Divinity School students, faculty, staff, and friends who gather for a worship service in the  Episcopal or Anglican tradition. Our service lasts from 12:10 pm to 1pm on Mondays and is open to any and all interested parties. One need not identify as Episcopalian to join—all are welcome!

The worship service includes readings from the Bible, the singing of hymns, prayers, and a Eucharist or Holy Communion. We rotate preaching so everyone who wants to gets a chance to give a sermon, and there are many opportunities to learn about our particular tradition both in and after the worship service. After worshiping together, we gather for lunch and informal fellowship from 1 pm to -2 pm in Rockefeller Hall, where we are always happy to have new people join us.

In addition to our time together on Monday afternoons, we provide opportunities for prayer and retreat through our own programming and our many connections with contemplative communities throughout the Boston area. We also put on an increasingly large academic conference entitled the New England Anglican Studies Conference which has drawn interest from across the country both inside and outside the Episcopal Church.

So "come and see!" Join us for worship and stay for a meal. We look forward to sharing in your journey at Harvard Divinity School.
