2:00–4:00 p.m.
Lyllye Reynolds-Parker Black Cultural Center

Meet with Counseling Services Cecile Gadson, who specializes in working with Black and African American students, at the Black Cultural Center.

Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.

Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:

Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it. Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling. Would like to consult with a CS staff member about what actual therapy looks like. Would like to meet with one of our CS identity-based specialists. Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.

How does Let’s Talk work?

Let’s Talk will be offered via Zoom and/or in satellite locations across campus. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.

Speaker Series: Mafias and the Cultures of Narcotraffic
April 17–June 5
5:00 p.m.–6:30 a.m.

This term-long colloquium (RL623) looks at the ways in which disposable bodies and violence are fast becoming a cultural currency associated with the kingpin culture of narcotraffic. This is a key debate for which the humanities and the social sciences are very well positioned to encourage critical thinking of the consumer culture (both Netflix shows, as well as drug consumerism) undergirding the glamorization of narcotraffic. This program includes the Film Series on Monday evenings (GSH123 6-8.30pm) and various speakers on different Wednesday evenings (5-6.30pm), as a way to engage with pressing issues of human rights, globalization, and global health. These cultural texts need to be critically accessed through a humanistic inquiry into the production of networks of cultural representations that endorse honor codes, impunity, naturalized political corruption, and the (de)valorization of the human body, all part of the glorification of narcotraffic, itself an epitome of capitalist accumulation and neoliberal deregulation.
