Specifically, what do they tell us about the visions and logics of care that such practices represent? In this paper, I compare two exhibits that describe efforts to respond to the 2014-6 West African Ebola epidemic: the Imperial War Museum's "Fighting Extremes: From Ebola to ISIS" (London) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's "Ebola: People + Public Health + Political Will" (Atlanta). Even as they rely on remarkably similar objects - rubber boots, protective gear, tippy taps, short, looped video interviews with frontline workers - to tell their Ebola stories, they differ with respect to how objects are oriented in space, in relation to other objects, ideas, and experiences, and their strategic positioning within museum (and institutional) agendas, more generally. These differences form the basis of my analysis, which is still quite preliminary. For the military museum, Ebola represents an instance of the 'extreme' and the extraordinary capacity of the armed forces to provide care under challenging circumstances. The exhibit showcases the tensions of militarized humanitarianism (referred to elsewhere as the 'empire of hugs'): the military's need to sustain itself through expansion of its work to humanitarian interventions and the counterinsurgency battles that are increasingly employing private military contractors. The CDC exhibit, while highlighting the contribution of its workers and 'partnerships' so central in US public health discourse plays to intimate dimensions of 'population' - suggesting that acts of care may occur outside the frame of the interpersonal. I end by discussing a recent trip to the in-progress National Ebola Museum in Njala, Sierra Leone, where questions of local ownership, memory and immunity linger in the archives.<br />Adia Benton is an assistant professor of Anthropology and African studies at Northwestern University. Her recent book, _HIV Exceptionalism: Development through Disease in Sierra Leone_(University of Minnesota Press 2015), recently won the 4S Rachel Carson Prize. The book explores the personal, professional and moral stakes of vertical funding for HIV, and the social, political and interpersonal relationships that are premised on the notion of HIV as a valued resource. Her work has appeared in Current Anthropology, Medical Anthropology, the African Studies Review, Dissent, The New Inquiry and The Monkey Cage blog at the Washington Post. Her more recent projects include the global surgery movement, the politics of disease eradication and of race in humanitarianism. <br /> <br /> lvavra@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20170810T171820Z-303158b-3e8-20862afd-Oracle Wed, 06 Sep 2017 15:32:27 -0000 INTERVIEW ESSENTIALS WORKSHOP http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20170802T195356Z-31d7495-3e8-4fc958c8-Oracle <p>Date: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=datesearch&amp;date=9-28-2017">September 28, 2017</a> at 3:30 pm | <a href="https://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;&amp;dispatch=invite&amp;id=20170802T195356Z-31d7495-3e8-4fc958c8-Oracle">Add event to my UICal</a> <br />Category: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Conferences+and+Workshops+%22">Conferences and Workshops </a> </p> Preparation is key to making a great first impression at the interview and landing the job.

Researchers at UIC are performing studies on the effects of alcohol on the blood vessels. This will be tested by looking at your blood vessels through the use of ultrasound, with 2 visits to the University of Illinois Chicago Clinical Research Center, a urine sample, a blood test, a fat tissue sample and exercise testing. Compensation will be provided at the completion of the 2nd visit. <br />The research will take place at 912 S. Wood Street in the Clinical Research Center or 1640 W. Roosevelt Rd. and in the Integrative Physiology Lab and 845 S. Damen Ave at the College of Nursing. The researchers conducting this study are Dr. Mariann R. Piano (845 S.
