      In this reading from her novel-in-progress, "Douze," Myriam J. A. Chancy -- author, Guggenheim Fellow, and HBA Chair of the Humanities at Scripps College - attempts to narrate a variety of points of view on the lived experience of the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake, which devastated central parts of Haiti. In this presentation, via text and photography, she will discuss why the post-earthquake situation should matter to all of us and what the consistent, historical disavowal of Haiti's place in the development of the hemisphere (in terms of the creation of national borders and philosophical boundaries) has meant in terms of the current inability of the populace to recover from natural and man-made disasters. A discussion of the role fiction can play in the breaking down fences and walls (real and metaphorical) through empathy will also be engaged. This event is presented in partnership with the Humanities Institute, Office of Public Events and Community Programs & Tuesday Noon Academy.

Collectively, they cause millions of people and their families to suffer. For many of these diseases, no treatment is available. For some, drugs or other therapies exist, but patients are unable to access them because the cost is too high.KGI's Center for Rare Disease Therapies addresses these issues. It raises awareness of rare diseases and promotes promising treatments. The center educates students to become biotech industry leaders who understand rare diseases and recognize the need for remedies.
