Graduate Women at MIT (GWAMIT) is an institute-wide, student-led group founded in 2009. Its mission is to promote the personal and professional development of MIT's graduate women. GWAMIT welcomes all members of the MIT community, including men. This OCW site features selected videos from the two conferences GWAMIT runs each academic year: a Leadership Conference in the fall and an Empowerment Conference in the spring. It also provides a list of related readings and other resources.
While this video is mainly for young children, it adequately explains the first step of the writing process, brainstorming, in a way that is fun and easily remembered. With lyrics like "there's no bad ideas when your brainstorming," even young, reluctant writers will enjoy this step. (0:55)

The human population in the U.S. and Canada is getting older—meaning that the proportion of elderly people is growing year by year. By 2050, researchers have projected, a third of the population of these countries will be 60 years old and older. This could pose a strain on socioeconomic systems such as healthcare, retirement benefits, and social security. An international group of researchers publishing in the journal Nature has proposed a new measure of "old age." Projections using the met
A Politics and International Studies department debate on IPE with Mark Blyth, Shirin M Rai, Dr Matthew Watson and Dr Jeffrey Chwieroth.
This class explores the politics of economic reform in Latin America. Topics addressed include: Dependency, Development, and Bureaucratic-Authoritarianism; The Political Consequences of Market-Oriented Reform in Venezuela; The Mexican Peso Crisis; Transitions from Authoritarian Rule in the Southern Cone; Civil-Military Relations; Limits of Democratization; Parties and Elections in Latin America; Religion, Political Mobilization, and Civil Society; and Revolution.
This course examines theoretical and empirical approaches to understanding the process of late development. Topics include the role of the state in alleviating or exacerbating poverty, the politics of industrial policy and planning and the relationship between institutional change and growth. How over the past century have some of the world's poorest nations achieved wealth? How have others remained mired in poverty? What are the social consequences for alternative strategies of development?
Natalia Levchenko, who was born in 1929 in Novo-Moskovsk and was living there during the war years, testifies how the Jews from Novo-Moskovsk were collected by the Germans and local policemen on March 24-26, 1942 under the pretext that they would be sent to Palestine. Their personal belongings and valuables were confiscated; some of the Jews was taken by boat across the Samara River to the murder site there.
