About the talk

The Capitol riots of January 6, 2021 was arguably the most filmed and photographed riot in history. The smashing of a window by Proud Boy Dominic Pelozza was photographed and widely shared online. Participants posted thousands of selfies and selfie-videos to social media, in which they were performing, confirming, or boasting about crimes they were committing. This is known as performance crime--the performance of criminal activity in which filming or photographing one’s crime and sharing it with an audience is intrinsic to the crime itself. Many of these selfies and selfie-videos were subsequently used as evidence in legal cases against the Capitol rioters. In this talk, Sandra Jeppesen explores how performance crimes played out during the Capitol riots, and how citizens in general are increasingly putting themselves under surveillance, knowingly or not, doing the work of the police in tracking, collecting evidence, and prosecuting crimes against themselves.

Date: Tuesday, March 7
Time: 7 to 8 p.m.
Location: OA 1025, Simcoe Hall, Lakehead University | 500 University Ave., Orillia

Dr. Sandra Jeppesen is Professor in Media, Film & Communications. She has an HBASc in Systems Design Engineering, an MA in Creative Writing, and a PhD in English with a dissertation on anarchist media and culture. She has been at Lakehead since 2010, and currently teaches Alternative Media, Graphic Novels, and Calling Bullshit (which is about debunking disinformation). Her areas of research include alternative media, AI, algorithms, counter-data mapping, and smart cities from a grassroots perspective. She co-founded Lakehead’s Research Centre on Sustainable Communities where she is a board member, and has held the Lakehead University Research Chair in Transformative Media and Social Movements. She has published three books in three years: Media Activist Research Ethics (Palgrave 2020), co-edited with Paola Sartoretto; Transformative Media: Intersectional Technopolitics from Indymedia to #BlackLivesMatter (UBC Press 2021), a monograph; and The Capitol Riots: Digital Media, Disinformation, and Democracy Under Attack (Routledge 2022), co-authored with Michael Hoechsmann, iowyth ulthiin, David VanDyke, and Miranda McKee.

Sustainability is the avoidance of the depletion of natural resources to maintain an ecological balance. Water and soil pollution, animal farming and consumption, all deplete natural resources. Chemistry has the potential to remediate pollution and develop plant-based alternatives that mimic animal products, and in turn, promote the sustainability of the world’s resources. When it comes to remediation, the ideal method should be efficient, cheap and with low energy requirements. On the other hand, plant-based alternatives to animal products attempt to provide similar properties with a smaller environmental impact.
 
Over the last few years, our collaborative work with the Faculty of Engineering and the Department of Food Science at the University of Guelph, has focused on two main fields of research: The spontaneous purification of water using surfactants and surfactant-like molecules, a process that is extremely low cost and with great potential, and the development of plant-based alternatives of eggs, meat and cheese.  In this talk, we will explore water remediation and the development of plant-based analogues from the point of view of the molecular interactions that give rise to the desired (and undesired) behaviours needed for these purposes. Understanding the behaviours of these systems at the molecular level can lead to the development of plant-based analogues that truly mimic animal products, as well as a new generation of water purification methods.
