The Collaborative Pediatric Neuroradiology Symposium is a joint effort by pediatric neuroradiologists from the University of Chicago Department of Radiology and a few select academic neuroradiologists locally in India.  The purpose of the event is to showcase a variety of interesting topics in the field, ranging from an early glimpse at the central nervous system with fetal imaging, to congenital anomalies of the brain and spine, to acquired abnormalities in the head and neck.  This collaborative event will promote use of advanced imaging techniques, include interactive case-based sessions, as well as provide an overview on the exciting field of use of simulation in radiology especially in the context of pediatric contrast reaction management training.

Meeting the Challenge of Urbanization in the 21st Century: Focus in India

11:00 am–12:00 pm
New Committee Room, School of Planning and Architecture

Sep.
25

Never in history have we built so much, in so many different places. Population growth, urbanization and technological change are all pushing us to conceive and design spaces in human societies in new and better ways, towards more environmentally sustainable and socially equitable human settlements. Much of what is happening in the fastest growing cities in the world today, however, is informal and while vital fails to incorporate advanced knowledge or seize opportunities for leapfrogging solutions. In this talk, Professor Luis Bettencourt, Pritzker Director, Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation, Professor, Ecology and Evolution and the College, Associate Faculty, Department of Sociology, University of Chicago will discuss these challenges from the perspective of what we know scientifically about cities and formal processes of design. 


This talk by Professor Pradeep Chintagunta, Joseph T. and Bernice S. Lewis Distinguished Service Professor of Marketing, University of Chicago Booth School of Business, is held in collaboration with Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIM A), and Hindustan Unilever Limited.


Youth in India: Circumstances, Policy, and Engagement

5:00–7:00 pm
UChicago Center in Delhi

Sep.
10

Over the past half century, and particularly since the adoption of the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), there have been shifting policy orientations toward children and young people, including a growing emphasis on young people’s potential to contribute to society. Successfully engaging young people in the institutions that shape their lives can be a critical factor in their development as both individuals and citizens. Effectively engaging young people, however, can be challenging. This is particularly true regarding those from disadvantaged backgrounds. This panel discussion will examine the current state of youth and youth policy in India and explore the challenges and possibilities for promoting their engagement and positive development.

The Ring’ of ’ Truth

5:00–8:00 pm
UChicago Center in Delhi

Sep.
3

Rings are powerful – we know this from the fairy tales, folk tales, and myths. But what exactly does their power stem from, and who has power over whom? Unfortunately or as usual, the ring seems to be another tool of patriarchy, allowing men ownership over women and keeping women tied to their men...
This performative event uses storytelling, song, and a playful exploration of circular objects and symbols to delve into these stories and try to both uncover and set free the 'truth' behind the ring.
