Criminal Births: Infanticide, Stillbirth and the Rio de Janeiro Police, 1890-1940

April 17, 20144:00 PM – 5:30 PM
Edward Pols House, Conference Room

Criminal Births: Infanticide, Stillbirth and the Rio de Janeiro Police, 1890-1940

During Brazil's First Republic (1889-1930) and into the early Vargas era (1930-1937) in the capital city of Rio de Janeiro, police were involved in poor women's reproductive lives. Police investigations conflated fertility control practices such as abortion and infanticide with non-criminal occurrences like miscarriage and stillbirth. Drawing on police investigations of infanticide, stillbirths, and birth-related infant deaths in Rio de Janeiro, Cassia Roth argues that the state's incursion into poor women's reproductive lives transformed events like a difficult delivery or a stillbirth into potential crimes.

April 21, 20144:15 PM – 6:00 PM
Visual Arts Center, Beam Classroom

David Stork Lecture: Computer Vision in the Study of Art: New Rigorous Approaches to the Study of Paintings and Drawings

What can computers reveal about images that even the best-trained connoisseurs, art historians and artist cannot? How much more powerful and revealing will these methods become? In short, how is the "hard humanities" field of computer image and analysis of art changing our understanding of paintings and drawings? David Stork's lecture will include computer vision, pattern recognition and image analysis of works by Jackson Pollock, Vincent van Gogh, Jan van Eyck, Hans Memling, Lorenzo Lott, and several others. You may never see paintings the same way again. Sponsored by Bowdoin's Digital and Computational Studies Initiative.
