Past Events


In ths talk, Dr. Mathew Varghese, Head of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, St. Stephen's Hospital, Delhi will discuss the many controversies that relate with how to ensure the best outcomes for trauma victims. He will review the scientific evidence on the effectiveness of medical interventions that can be performed in a pre-hospital setting as well as broader issues related with trauma system design. His talk will discuss specific medical technologies, types of ambulances (advanced versus basic), and pre-hospital care strategies (“scoop and run” versus “stay and play”).


Crash victims are typically transported to hospitals by passing vehicles in most low- and middle-income countries because of the high cost of ambulance-based emergency medical systems (EMS). Researchers from the University of Chicago, Shiv Nadar University and the Indian Institute of Technology - Delhi  have been exploring the concept of using taxis, commercial vehicles, and police as alternative means for rapid and safe transfer of crash victims to hospital. This event brings together key stakeholders to discuss the advantages and pitfalls of such a system.


Facebook’s decision in 2014 to shut down pages devoted to the Syrian uprising raised important concerns, but it also highlighted the difficulty involved in ascertaining the truth of claims circulating in Syria’s “media wars”. Far from establishing “what really happened,” the multiplication of distribution sites, the ease with which digital photos can be doctored, the speed with which “news” gets circulated and then superseded by the next catastrophe, and the competition between rival discourses registering moral outrage have led to new forms of uncertainty. The Syrian case lays bare a set of mechanisms by which information excess can be exploited for political gain and also expose the vulnerability of the fragile relation between truth and politics. Prof. Wedeen in her talk will navigate through these matters, unpack exemplary real-life moments from Syria and weave her conversation around thinking of political theorists and Syrian artists – all, while highlighting the “uncertainties” around politics in the Syrian as well as more global present.


Using Groups to Support Recovery from Mental Illness and Addiction

Through June 3, 2018
UChicago Center in Delhi

Begins
Jun. 1

This conference brought together an intimate group of colleagues with experience in different aspects of the use of groups to support recovery from mental illness and addiction. As coordinators of the conference, Dr. Deborah Spitz, Dr. Jeffrey Roth, and Dr. Suma Jacob demonstrated four key uses of groups: group psychotherapy, group relations (the study of group and organizational dynamics), trauma focused therapy and mutual support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon. All of the participants also brought their own areas of expertise, and shared their areas of interest with each other, since we believe that the power of groups lies in the sharing of the resources of all of its individual members.
