KALAMAZOO, Michigan – Medieval scholars from around the world will gather virtually May 9 to 14 for the 57th celebration of the International Congress of Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University.

Usually held on campus but transitioned to a virtual format over the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event is hosted by Western’s Medieval Institute and has attracted scholars, students, librarians, museum curators and other medieval studies enthusiasts.

Topics for this year’s sessions range from exploring race in literature, to using games in the classroom, to concepts of death and monsters, and restoring art and culture. medieval architecture.

“We are thrilled and delighted with the continued presence and support of medievalists around the world. It is heartening to see that the pandemic has not dampened academic interest and enthusiasm for the Middle Ages,” says Dr. Jana K. Schulmandirector of the Medieval Institute.

A virtual Exhibit Hall, featuring a diverse international selection of university presses, online databases and learned societies, is now open to the public; registration is not required. Open 24 hours a day, attendees can stroll through the “stands” to discover exclusive sales, leaf through the latest catalogs and ask questions about their offers.

The world is big, but in the 21st century it shouldn’t be foreign,” said Professor Alba Carosio.

Between April 20-22, 2022, was held at Esperanza College in Philadelphia, PA.

“The main objective is to serve as a platform for the empowerment and well-being of women, to make voices and experiences known, regardless of latitude and thus to be a starting point for the construction of a space for formation and reflection by and for women”, it is underlined on the website of the Comprehensive Center for Mother Earth Women, the organization which produced the event.

During the third and last day of this congress, the main theme revolved around the drama of migrant women, in particular the challenges they face today.

In a valuable presentation, given by the Venezuelan professor Alba Carosio, researcher in feminist studies and Latin American thought, who directs the Venezuelan journal of women’s studies, published by the CEM of Venezuela, an x-ray was presented which exposes the difficult situations that these women have to go through to try to lead a dignified life without forgetting their roots.

“There are economic reasons, travel, family reasons, the search for new horizons, opportunities for personal growth, but there are also general trends that attract female migration in the world. Sorrows and expectations that shape the future of women in their diversity and in the opportunities of departure (their country of origin), mobility and reception,” said Professor Carosio.

According to UN Women data shared by Carosio, the female gender accounts for almost half of the 244 million migrants and half of the 19.6 million refugees worldwide. In addition, the remittances these women send improve the livelihoods and health of their families while helping to strengthen the economy.

With information from 2020, it is estimated that 19% of walkers in Venezuela are minors, and 25% are women, of which 3.7% are pregnant.

Other figures that must be taken into account for the actions of these women in their transit through the world are:

  • Migrants, especially women, have higher activity rates than non-migrants, 72.7% versus 63.9%.
  • It is estimated that one in six domestic workers worldwide is an international migrant, with women representing 73.4% of the total of these employees.

Professor Carosio also highlighted what she sees as “push and pull factors”, which are the triggers that push these women to leave their country and embark on this journey around the world in search of best conditions. Among the most important are:

  • Economic factors: Unemployment, job insecurity, low wages.
  • Socio-political factors: Ethnic, religious, racial, political or cultural persecution and gender-based violence.
  • Environmental and war factors: Natural disasters and wars.
  • Cultural factors: Search for better educational opportunities.
  • Family factors: The desire for a reunion between separated family members.

Carosio also socialized some data from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) on the “top four reasons” migrants come to the United States:

  1. They seek better living conditions.
  2. They escape situations of family and community violence.
  3. They try to reunite with their families.
  4. They are looking for a job that allows them to provide for the financial needs of their children.

Carosio also pointed out that, according to the IOM, in Latin America 50.1% of migrants are women, which means that they currently migrate in greater numbers than men.

Professor Carosio also spoke of the double discrimination that migrant women face, where racism and xenophobia are serious issues they have to deal with on a daily basis, while anti-immigrant sentiment continues to rise in various countries around the world. .

With this gray panorama for migrants, the challenges are:

  • Preserve their cultural heritage, without this meaning being marginalized or segregated.
  • Participate in the new society, find ways to interact with the culture of the host country and with its social dynamics.
  • Maintain their physical and psychological stability during and after the acculturation process.

Carosio concluded her presentation by emphasizing that these challenges can be overcome with less trauma if migrant women rely on the efforts of various networks, which are nothing more than “the bonds of solidarity and expected bonds of trust that serve as sources of social capital and which enable their members to access, among other benefits, economic and cultural resources and special humanitarian assistance”.

Bolivia demands recognition of sovereignty over Silala

Sponsored by the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the congress will bring together world academic and professional references on the subject and leaders of environmental organizations.

“Our countries are aware of the challenges posed by the energy transition towards renewable energies and electromobility,” said Bolivian Hydrocarbons Minister Franklin Molina.

He argued that more sustainable lithium extraction processes are needed because energy transition plans require much larger quantities of this metal.

“Regional exchanges and conferences will help design a sustainable extraction and production system that meets these objectives,” said ECLAC Director of Natural Resources Division Jeannette Sanchez.

Chilean Mines Minister Marcela Hernando says President Gabriel Boric intends to create a national lithium company that powers this industry with community participation and a lithium and swamp research and development institute salts.

“With these initiatives, respect for the oil reserves of our countries is strengthened and new possibilities for the exchange of experiences and knowledge acquired are opened up,” Molina pointed out.

“We are delighted that this abstract has been accepted for presentation at such a prestigious autoimmunity conference, considered the largest multidisciplinary congress addressing all aspects of autoimmune disease and attracting some of the world’s foremost experts on autoimmunity,” commented Dr. Klaus Paulini, CEO of Aeterna. “In collaboration with Aeterna, Dr. Bruttel, Professor Dr. Wischhusen and our combined teams continue their efforts to explore the utility of AIM Biologicals for the treatment of NMOSD. In this abstract, they will present, for the first time, a proof of concept of AIM Biologicals in both in in vitro and mouse models.

Dr Bruttel from the University added: “These studies demonstrate that AIM Biologicals induce AQP4-specific human regulatory T cells. in vitro and prevent neuroinflammatory diseases in animal models. We believe Aquaporin-4-specific AIM Biologicals may be suitable for targeted immunosuppression in neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders and we look forward to continuing our work with our exclusive licensee, Aeterna, to advance this.

About Neuromyelitis Optic Spectrum Disorder (NMOSD)

NMOSD is an antibody-mediated inflammatory disorder of the central nervous system (CNS) that affects approximately one in one million people per year. NMOSD, also known as Devic’s disease, is a chronic disease of the brain and spinal cord dominated by inflammation of the optic nerve (optic neuritis) and spinal cord (myelitis). Typical symptoms include loss of vision, muscle spasms, paraparesis and incontinence. If left untreated, 50% of people with NMOSD will become wheelchair bound and blind, and 30% will die within five years of the first attack. The water channel protein AQP4 is widely expressed in the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. Autoantibodies directed against AQP4 play an important role in the pathogenesis of NMOSD.

Currently, only three approved drugs are available for the treatment of NMOSD, all with very high annual treatment costs and the risk of the patient getting serious infections. Consequently, the Company believes that there remains a strong medical need to offer new therapeutic options to patients.

In the United States and Europe, there are currently approximately 10,000 to 15,000 patients living with NMOSD. Of these, patients seropositive for the AQP4 antibody who represent approximately 80% of the NMOSD population are the patients targeted for potential therapy based on AIM Biologicals technology.

About AIM OrganicAls

AIM Biologicals uses a novel mechanism believed to demonstrate that peptide antigens presented on MHC class I immunosuppressive molecules can selectively and effectively induce antigen-specific tolerance. Based on this mechanism, targeted immunomodulatory therapeutics are designed as optimized soluble molecules with the aim that they can be tailored to selectively induce tolerance to various autoantigens. Preclinical studies conducted by the University so far indicate that the induction of tolerance appears to be achieved via the selective elimination of antigen-specific immune effector cells and via the induction of antigen-specific regulatory T cells. antigen from naive T cells. AIM Biologicals therefore has the potential to become highly specific and effective but non-personalized treatments for NMOSD.

For the treatment of NMOSD, it is expected that AIM Biologicals will present a specific antigen derived from the water channel protein aquaporin-4 (AQP4) loaded with the soluble immunoregulatory protein HLA-G to selectively induce immunological tolerance in the central nervous system.
