The Revolving Door: Child Malnutrition in Mount Frere, Eastern Cape South Africa: Case Study This case study focuses on the multiple factors which feed into under 5 malnutrition (including the social determinants of disease). It is set in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa in 2002. The UNICEF Conceptual Framework is used as a tool for analysis. The case is structured as a short narrative case study followed by an introduction to the UNICEF Conceptual Framework. In addition, contextual information is supplied and could be supplemented, using links to further sources of i

Chris Schommer-Pries: Dualizability in Low Dimensional Higher Category Theory (Part 1)
Chris Schommer-Pries (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Abstract: The cobordism hypothesis establishes a powerful relationship between extended topological field theories taking values in a symmetric monoidal higher category and objects in that higher category with various kinds of duality. In this setting an extended topological field theory is a higher categorical extension of the Atiyah-Segal axioms which allows for topological bordisms to be decomposed along submanifolds of arbitrary c
Daniel Berwick-Evans: Spaces of field theories and the topology of manifolds
Daniel Berwick-Evans, University of California-Berkeley Abstract: We will explain a way in which geometric field theories can be used to study the topology of manifolds. After setting up the main players as defined by Stolz and Teichner, we'll focus attention on dimensional reduction and quantization. The former allows us to extract numerical invariants whereas the latter can be used to produce a linear approximation (in the sense of Goodwillie calculus) that builds a cohomology theory out of
Joseph Hirsh: Deformations with noncommutative parameters
Joseph Hirsh, City University of New York Abstract: In this talk I will describe the classical yoga of deformation theory---that commutative moduli problems are locally described by dgLie algebras---and provide some examples. Then, importing tools from operad theory, most notably Koszul Duality, I will describe a generalization that classifies the local structure of noncommutative moduli problems. I will conclude by describing some ongoing work to exploit the relationship between noncommutati
