And one of the things that has been a strength and a real interest in that is also the questions of both where scientific knowledge can lead us, but then also where it might end and where we might need other kinds of ways of transmitting information. And you know, you go everywhere now and it’ll say BPA-free, but they’ve just actually replaced BPA with BPS. And Kelly was like, no, this is a more interesting story because of this relationship. That’s the kind of mapping that we can do through that kind of scientific knowledge. So how did plastic become so pervasive so fast? So the news and statistics are startling. The following articles are merged in Scholar. So with the development of “bioplastics”. For the plastic, it’s in order to do things like, you know, make something black or hard or heat-resistant or whatever other kinds of qualities, we want that plastic object to have. And there’s lots of materially important differences between various types of plastics, primarily in terms of toxicity levels. One of the things that I also suggest in my work is that perhaps we might also want to draw from feminist and queer theory to rethink our notions of kin and kinship structures to really value and revalue how we think about our relations to other beings in the world. And the manual itself is going to be hosted on a website that also uses solar energy. Working in this capacity gave her unparalleled access to key decision-makers in the legal profession – from Am Law 200 managing and marketing partners to general counsel of Fortune 500 companies. She is a professor and dean emerita for the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis. Table 18 Regression Results for the Relation of Diagnostic Status to Parenting Stress as Mediated by Hyperactivity - "The Relation of Hyperactivity to Parenting Stress within the Parent-Child Relationship in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders" So I mean, I’m sympathetic to trying to come up with solutions in the kind of short term for the replacement of particular kinds of goods. At this point, it’s very difficult to sort of pick a path for plastic. Dr. Davis’s book projects include two co-edited volumes “Art in the Anthropocene: Encounters Among Aesthetics, Politics, Environments and Epistemologies” published in 2015 and “Desire Change: Contemporary Feminist Art in Canada” published in 2017. And so sometimes the website will exist and sometimes the website won’t exist depending on whether it’s sunny or cloudy. Like the mushrooms that can digest plastics or the various other kinds of micro-organisms. So clearly I think an analysis or a conversation with people who are doing this type of chemical engineering or this type of analysis from a more of a scientific point of view is deeply important. So it’s called a nurdle or sometimes it’s called mermaid’s tears. And so it’s been really amazing to sort of see this come together because there’s like so many things that I never thought of before and so many things that the other folks have been so incredibly thoughtful about how to think about this. So one of the first things that the collective did was to go around and do a study of preproduction plastic pellets that were being released directly into the Great Lakes. So sometimes they get shipped in container ships, sometimes they’re put on railway lines. And so I think that one of the things that climate change really affords us an opportunity to do is to really radically rethink our relationships to things. Yeah, I was trying to think about the temporalities of plastic, you know, because it does force us to think about time in a different way, because its timescales are so different from this human scale. So what does feminist theory or queer analytics, what does that have to do with something like plastic? And so in this case, people were really reusing these plastic bags as crib liners. So I think that one of the really strong characteristics of these kinds of art-science collaborations is that you can disseminate similar information to different sets of audiences and it can be seen in different ways in different places. Or maybe there’s a way to be able to disentangle the kind of queering of the body effects that these phthalates are having from the kind of conversations around cancers or something else. I doubt that this will happen. So those plastics were primarily created through plant materials, through various kinds of celluloses. Most of our buildings would fall down and most of us would be walking around naked. In lieu of flowers, Memorial gifts may be directed to the Grant Davis Memorial Scholarship Fund at Jamestown Community College. One of the byproducts of this is that there’s a category of plasticizers called phthalates. It’s more just like, you know, you’re making a bunch of stuff on a factory floor and there’s still that drain that goes into the Lake. And the interesting thing about this Monsanto House is that, you know, we might not live within that kind of aesthetic, but we certainly do live within that kind of environment now. Another, another source of inspiration for thinking about the relationships of time is to think about Christina Sharpe’s residency time and she thinks about that as the amount of time that it takes for a body –and she’s specifically thinking about the people who were captured and enslaved in the transatlantic slave trade and the people who either fell or jumped or were pushed overboard, and how long their bodies took to enter and exit the oceanic system. Patricia was originally kind of very like, Oh, that sucks, what am I going to say about geology in relationship to this? Of particular interest are evidence based individual and group treatment modalities and academic services for this population. You know, there’s all kinds of much more practical means of really thinking through this in terms of, you know, extended producer responsibility laws and various other kinds of things. The other thing that was really interesting was that the public in general kind of had to be taught to be consumers, especially in relationship to the ways that we think about consumption nowadays, which is that you buy something and throw it away, right? To sort of then go back to your other question about, so what does feminism or queer theory have to do with this study? And also people still really have this mentality of saving everything that came into your home. Little Scholars Village was founded by Heather Davis, who has a background as a special education teacher and has started two schools in Wappingers Falls and one in Texas. 89(45%) received no therapy, 43(22%) incomplete therapy, 51(26%) complete therapy, 8(4%) surgery only, and 6(3%) therapy followed by surgery. Welcome to the Multispecies Worldbuilding Lab. It doesn’t address any of those problems. Whereas for the many people around the world for whom the kind of proliferation of plastics has resulted in forms of harm or violence or misery, primarily in places where people are responsible for recycling, which often happens by hand and in very material ways or for people who’ve been displaced because their communities became so toxic that they had to leave. Anything that’s made of PVC or any kind of vinyl monomer in its production is both incredibly toxic to the consumers and also especially to the people who are producing those plastics in the first place. They’re false solutions in the sense that they are not going to solve the problems of microplastics in waterways, for example. Their, This "Cited by" count includes citations to the following articles in Scholar. So it became, not that the bags were bad, but that consumer behavior was bad and the bad consumer behavior was to hold onto the bags that the bags themselves were meant to be disposable. They really thought of them as cheap, as imitative, as not desirable. Heather Davis is an itinerant researcher and writer. Certainly the very early plastics, so things like celluloid or Bakelite or Parkesine, all of these kinds of early primarily non-fossil fuel-based plastics. So, you know, I have this kind of binary system. So if you disrupt the endocrine system, then you end up with a huge range of health problems in a human body. You know, really if you’re just thinking about it in terms of time, translation into time. I think that there is some sense of really having to just work through what we have, which in that sense I think does mean caretaking or attuning to the kinds of beings that have arisen. This can be everything from neurological disorders to cancers to diabetes to early onset senility to a whole host of other issues and problems. The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis seeks scholars for the Heather M. Young Postdoctoral Fellowship. And I think it really doesn’t address the real fundamental issue, which is that, you know, when you think back there was a proposition in the 60s, I think it was, called the Monsanto House. Even if we were to get these bacteria, it would mean that all of our infrastructure would fall apart, if we were really serious about it. And then also what percentage of that was pre-production plastic pellets. This entire class of chemicals, what it does is that it primarily affects the human endocrine system. We have to seriously consider that we’re responsible for the creation of these beings. This national fellowship program prepares early-mid career nurse scholars for leadership in research, education, practice and policy. It doesn’t matter if we all go to the no-waste grocery store in Williamsburg, that is not, it’s just so far outside of the kind of scales at which these things have to be changed. And then they appeared as the kind of answer to this need. Even if some of our material conditions have to really be rethought or maybe because some of our material conditions have to be rethought it allows us the opportunity to then rethink relations in a way that I think is much more deeply engaging. Or the other way is, at least this is what we hypothesize and that we’ve heard from anonymous sources, is that sometimes the factories, if they produce a batch of bad plastics, they’ll just pour them down the drain and then the drain literally leads to the Lake. Yeah, I’ve been really privileged to work with this group of people. And because of that, it meant that a lot of those animals were being hunted to endangerment. Thank you for listening to the Multispecies Worldbuilding Lab. She teaches at Eugene Lang College at the New School in New York City and is a member of the Synthetic Collective, a multidisciplinary group of artists and scientists who are mapping the material effects of plastic in the Great Lakes. That would mean right now there’s a lot of fracking that’s happening in Pennsylvania and North Dakota, so in those places. So, if you had something that came into your home, then that was an item that was precious and that you were going to reuse in some capacity or save for future reuse for something that was yet unknown. It’s very difficult to transport both ethylene and napthalate. That’s what people are trying to do, right? So it doesn’t necessarily matter if something is BPA-free. Her current book project, Plastic Matter, argues that plastic has transformed the material world due to its incredible longevity and range, as it has also transformed our understandings and expectations of … They’re produced from a cellulose structure from plants. And so we’re having an exhibition that’s going to open at the University of Toronto and that is going to also include these maps that are getting drawn that show the kind of possible paths that these pellets have taken. Their combined citations are counted only for the first article. I don’t want that kind of move to thinking about bacteria who can successfully biodegrade plastics as a kind of excuse for the rampant production of plastics across the world. And so this is the history of the very early plastics, the non-fossil fuel-based plastics. And so embracing, I think the kind of porousness of our bodies, the necessity for entanglements I think is incredibly generative as a starting point. But the problem for me with that is that it doesn’t address the kind of subjectivity that you were talking about earlier. Things like, we should ban PVCs. Heather Marie Bishop, age 48, Inverness, FL passed away January 3, 2021 at home under the loving care of her family. And I think in your work you’re also very clear about questioning who the “we” is. And what’s really interesting is going through the plastics literature and the archives is you can really see the very concerted effort to produce this kind of culture, this kind of subject where we think of matter and materiality as essentially disposable and in a certain way as essentially ephemeral. And so it’s much easier to just put the plant next to the place where those things are being manufactured. Governments have to make these decisions.

Sometimes it’s not quite as insidious as that. Heather Davis is an assistant professor of Culture and Media at Eugene Lang College, The New School, in New York. But we might also want to be paying attention to the ways in which things can survive and potentially even thrive under conditions of toxicity. Well, I think for me, one of the things you know, and I certainly know that, that you’ve been thinking along these lines as well, which is that one of the things that I think we need and many other people have also been thinking along these lines. That’s primarily how it happens, at least as far as we understand up until this moment. So really thinking about toxicity as itself potentially productive, which doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t also be paying attention as Mel Chen says in their work, paying attention to all the kind of screaming negative affects of toxicity. How might you describe yourself and your practice? There was a lot of deaths that were associated with plastic bags, first of all, because people would use them to line their cribs for their babies, which made a lot of sense because they’re water-resistant and so it makes a lot of sense. And of course, you know, the fact that there are all these new organisms that can eat plastics and those were enhanced by scientists, but they weren’t created by us. And it helps us to give a much more expansive sense of what kin and caretaking and relationality might mean in the world outside of just the kind of reproduction of sameness that we often kind of see it as. And so for those of us who are entangled with the plastics industry, then we are also entangled with the emergence of these new forms of life. So I’d love to find out how do you follow something as pervasive and as big as plastic. And then that goes through usually an extractor of some kind and then that gets flattened out into like a long sheet. So what are the hydrological cycles in the lakes that would maybe make it so that certain plastics end up in certain areas and none end up in other places. So if we think of them then not as something abject but as something that we have to care for, I think that that gives us a different kind of ethical perspective. They might not even be seen within your children’s lifetime. So there’s all kinds of things that you can see if you employ this kind of multi-perspectival approach that really allows for each of us to draw deep into our own training in order to approach this object. But the plastics industry really saw this as an opportunity, they saw it as a way to educate the public to throw the bags away. So, polyethylene for example, is a fairly benign plastic, whereas polyvinyl chloride or anything that has a chloride monomer in it, in relationship to plastics is incredibly carcinogenic. Most of the hypotheses say that it’s highly variable depending upon where the plastics are. And in terms of my work, one of the things that I’ve been thinking about more is, what would it look like for kind of redistribution of toxicity to happen? I was at the Healthy Materials Labs at Parsons [School of Design] yesterday and they’ve come up with a hemp-based building material, which is really fascinating because you actually don’t need anything except for the hemp to create the qualities of flame retardancy. It can be kind of transportable or transposable as a kind of object. Hormones regulate virtually everything in our bodies. Yeah. So I’m really interested in the writing as a form in and of itself. And those plasticizers have various different kinds of effects both for the plastic and for people’s and other creatures’ bodies. Yeah. Bioplastics for the most part are cellulose-based plastics, meaning that they are plastics that are produced not with any kind of fossil fuel as their source or their base. So what is the residency time of plastic? Their combined citations are counted only for the first article. What you actually want in terms of your health is phthalate-free rather than BPA-free. It also got picked up in the New York Times. You mentioned a feminist approach. And then that long sheet then often gets broken down, sort of recomposed and broken down. To me, what’s interesting in this story is it really illustrates the ways in which disposability and disposable culture and this kind of culture of consumption that we now take very much for granted was very much an industry effort. So basically when you produce plastic, it goes through this whole kind of procedure. And so, they thought, is there another way to make a similar kind of structure? So it doesn’t have to always be carrying the exact same message with it. You know, it’s been written about in Nature, it’s been written about in the Geological Society. The most well-known of these is BPA. It really is a project that’s embedded and really cares about the quality of things, about the quality of what are the actual ramifications of various kinds of plastics or the ways in which they’ve been produced or taken up in the world. The presence of plastics, as you write, is one of the markers of this new geologic epoch called the Anthropocene. And most of those are small facilities. I think about those creatures as a kind of toxic progeny. They were really developed to fill a need, which was that other kinds of polymeric structures that are things like tortoise shell or horn or ivory of various kinds. They’re easy to clean. And clearly we’re going to need different types of organisms for different types of environments. It’s an insulating material. And then the industry standard for any kind of plastic that’s going to be made into a consumer object is these little preproduction plastic pellets or nurdles or mermaid’s tears. Grant leaves behind his beloved wife, Heather Davis, parents Jeffrey and Sue, sisters Vanessa (husband Zachary Davis) and Kate, brother Nathan (wife Ludmila Davis and son Logan). It seems like a dream interdisciplinary project. Education 24, 1965-1985, 2008. And so there’s been a kind of panic around saving men and saving a certain form of masculinity as a result of the pervasiveness of these types of chemicals in the world. Heather I. Davis Gahagen 200 Porter Hall If you know what they look like, they’re really easy to spot because they’re so perfect in their composition. So people really wanted those products to make combs, to make billiard balls, to make various other kinds of luxury goods and sort of non-luxury goods. They’re not going to solve the problems of the globalized plastic worlds that we live in. We would have no more digital technologies. In this episode, Sarain talks to scholars Zoe Todd and Heather Davis about decolonizing the Anthropocene. Those rocks are formed through campfires. What would that kind of mean in terms of geographical relocation or the relocation of dumps or the relocation of incinerator plants or those kinds of things? Dr. Davis calls herself a small town girl, originally from a small northern California town in the central valley. Identifying patterns of appraising tests in first-year college students: Implications for anxiety and emotion regulation during test taking. It’s sort of this long procedure where you get a bunch of chemicals. Heather is interested in the social, emotional, academic, and relationship challenges faced by adolescents and adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Our desire for really sealing ourselves off from the world and from each other has not been especially helpful in the long run because we never will be able to do that. People really had to be taught to throw stuff away. And the two primary sources for that historically were America and Germany. And then because of that, there was a number of suffocations that happened because of these plastic crib liners or plastic bags being turned into crib liners. Heather Davis, Chair of the Board of Directors for the National Registry "Dr. You don’t need material on the outside. Heather Davis was named all-tournament as Christian Heritage finished second at the Point Loma Nazarene Invitational. So there was a huge range of advertising campaigns that were all geared towards really trying to encourage people to throw out plastic items. Try again later. This episode is produced by Ben Montoya, Josh Allen, Wanda Acosta, Alex Guillen, Hannah Tardie, and Elaine Gan. I know it’s difficult to talk sometimes about like, you know about the “we” because in some respect you want to, you have to be able to say “we” sometimes. We need to stash and hoard food. They also argue that the queering of the body is not a form of harm. What would it mean for those of us who have benefited from this way of living to take on more of the environmental burden? The other thing about a kind of feminist approach is that I think that there’s a kind of attention to not taking things for granted from the outset, but really trying to look for the kinds of ties and connections that one might think of as something like a situated knowledge. Because the plastic has to be made next to oil or a natural gas refineries, there has to be a mechanism for being able to get the plastic once it’s made to places where they’re going to make it into an object. For me, a couple of things that I’ve really learned from plastic is that our desire for containment isn’t helping us. ... Dr Heather L. Davis. Rev. And so I think that trying to bring these two pieces together to both create something that really affects you and that is visual and that can be understood from multiple perspectives, I think that that is a much more effective means of using all of our knowledge and our sets of skills and also to really get the public much more interested and animated over these questions. Billions of pounds of plastic are produced and thrown out every year. It also has circulated to the Smithsonian Museum and the Yale Peabody museum. The scholar will be a full-time employee of the National Registry, while receiving fully funded tuition towards completion of an approved doctoral program, through a partnership with The Ohio State … ... Heather Davis. Also in terms of our work with the Synthetic Collective, primarily we’re interested in plastic pollution in the Great Lakes, because not a lot of people have done a lot of work on plastic pollution in the Great Lakes. 89 * 2008: But I’m thinking about, what would it mean for those of us who are more the inheritors of plastic to take on the responsibilities of living with its toxicity? Davis works across the fields of environmental arts and humanities, and feminist and queer studies. It wasn’t for a period of 10 or 15 years before people really started changing their behavior in relationship to throwaway culture. She grew up there and then moved to Southern California to attend college at USC where she was a Dean's scholar. They’re just the kind of dream team of really wonderful, incredibly smart people and very easy to work with. Heather Davis-Remacle, PA-C, joined Tri-State Family Practice & Internal Medicine in June 2018. Aside from all of the carbon that would then be released back into the atmosphere as a result of doing that. They were created out of evolution itself. They’re not these kinds of giant corporations. And that is a really big problem because endocrines are hormones. How might that help us think about collaborative survival or multispecies worldbuilding. So you know, mealworms have existed for a long period of time, but the bacteria that are in their stomachs that can digest polyethylene and styrofoam, those are new. It’s PVC. I mean in a way governments have to…. And Michelle Murphy has this really beautiful concept of latency and she talks about the ways in which petrochemicals, plastics included in them because of these plasticizers primarily is that the effects on the human body, the toxic effects on the human body might not be seen within your lifetime. But when you look into the historical record, it’s really the opposite of that kind of a story. Those things were becoming increasingly rare but also increasingly in demand. So it seems to be more of an economic relation that’s produced and now what you’re talking about is out of that economic relation, we now have a queering of bodies. We started out this conversation talking about the chemical industry producing, after the war, a certain kind of mentality where people start disposing of things. I think that there’s so much on offer there. You know, coming from a feminist point of view, I feel like it’s incredibly important to kind of root oneself in context that you can actually speak to with some degree of authority. If we think about that seriously and think about those as a real substantial kin or a real substantial kinship structure or as really our babies in some way, then I think it helps us to reorient our ethics in relationship to questions of plastic. But those were increasingly in demand. Manifold was one of those rare individuals who was truly a scholar and a gentleman. People became aware of this. Clearly this is not a very implementable goal, right? You talk about the differences between the kinds of plastic that are around. But also the ways in which that object has since circulated. And what is interesting about that collaboration is that Patricia really wanted to go to Kamilo beach in Hawaii to go look at these new forms of rocks because she has long been interested in the kind of relationship between fossil fuels and particularly plastics and rocks as a geologist. Yeah, it’s been an amazing experience. One of the things that we really need to be thinking about is not some retreat to some Edenic past that probably didn’t exist in the first place, right? Heather L. Davis, MD is a Pulmonary / Critical Care specialist working with Chaparral Medical Group since 2004. So primarily in the United States, the companies are in the places where there are oil refineries. There really is no sense of return to a previous idyllic moment, which as I said before, probably never existed in the first place. So the interesting thing about plastics production is that it has to be in close proximity to fossil fuels. I mean, certainly there’s much more practical solutions that other people have come up with. Thank you for joining us today, Heather. It can’t depend on individual choices. Yeah, exactly. And that is just a matter of taking something and throwing it away. Which sort of puts plastic into perspective, as not always all bad or not always all good, that it’s always produced in certain kinds of relationships. Everything in it was this very kind of curved, sleek surfaces of plastic. Exactly. She also had 15 … The lab is made possible by the Green Grants program of New York University’s Office of Sustainability and NYU Center for Experimental Humanities and Social Engagement.
