Human Longevity, the OK Corral, Guerilla Clashes Part of Student Research Day Nov. 10

Insights into aging and longevity in humans and other beings will be given by Warren S. Browner, M.D., in his address, “In Search of the Fountain: The Genetics of Human Longevity,” at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, at California State University, Dominguez Hills.

Browner is the keynote speaker at Student Research Day at the university, which will include 74 undergraduate and graduate students presenting their research—some of it cutting-edge—on a wide variety of subjects, including science, mathematics, philosophy, sociology, history, humanities, agriculture, exercise, health, and business and economics.

Up to 10 of the students will be chosen to present their research at the California State University Statewide Competition, and monetary awards will be given.

CSU Dominguez Hills President James E. Lyons, Sr., will make the opening address at the 8:30 a.m. continental breakfast.

A sampling of the presentations includes “Where the Truths Lie,” a delving into the social and legal history behind the famous/infamous gunfight at the OK Corral between the Earp group and the Clanton group in 1881 and why the gun battle is portrayed so differently in movies; “Subcomandante Marcos’ History,” which addresses the two ways the man known only as Subcomandante Marcos is remembered by the populace represented by the guerilla movement in and around Chiapas, Mexico, in 1994 when the Zapatista Army of National Liberation clashed with the Mexican government, and the representation of the event in textbooks; and “The Grand Old Spending Party,” which discusses the presenter’s research on the growth in government spending during the Bush Administration compared to previous administrations, including President Bill Clinton and President Lyndon B. Johnson.

The rest of the schedule and details are available at http://www.csudh.edu/rf/Program2.pdf
