HUMAN DIGNITY AND HUMILIATION QUARTERLY DIALOGUE

MFT & Interdisciplinary Seminar 

Saturday, January 16th

10am-12pm

Rosa Reinikainen, MFT, WISR Adjunct Faculty, Facilitator. 

We are so fortunate at WISR to be linked in with the global network of Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies.  Evelyn Lindner and Linda Hartling have dedicated their lives to the important study of these dynamics.  Understanding the dynamics of humiliation is critical to healing from these cycles and restoring our innate dignity.

We live in a highly interconnected world. Humiliation cycles happen in a social, political, environmental, relational and interpersonal level, as well as an internal level.  It is important to look at our participation in these systems. There is escalating social instability, political unrest, violent conflict, economic injustice, and climate change and now a pandemic, which is already increasing and exacerbating existing inequality. There are massive issues with Police murdering 

back and brown people. We are having increasing climate disruption leading to floods, wildfires, earthquakes, and hurricanes. In looking at these dynamics we can create the impetus to design innovative, sustainable, and mutually dignifying solutions to these problems. We will discuss how we can create systems that ensure equal dignity for all. 

This seminar is a discussion about Human Dignity and Humiliation.  It is a ‘come-as-you-are’ discussion, meaning you do not need to have a deep understanding of these ideas.   We have all had experiences that are relevant to the discussion. These dialogues can help create change. Come discuss human dignity and humiliation with me.

The dial of the North Sea II is relatively simple and yet still surprisingly striking. At first glance, its in some ways evocative of the dial of the Rolex Sky-Dweller, with the exposed white calendar wheel in the centre contrasting strongly against the matte black dial and a red triangle indicating the current date. Again, Im not sure if this is an intentional homage, although E.C. fake omega Andersson does mention on its website that the North Sea II is a watch that pays tribute to the heritage of horology. What I can say, however, is that I quite like this design and think its a clever way to stand out from the crowd without resorting to cheap gimmicks.
