Greetings from the Frances McClelland Institute, 

January has been a busy month here at the Frances McClelland Institute for Children, Youth and Families. We are all energized for the new year of opportunities.

We kicked off our Spring Turbeville Speaker Series with a thought provoking presentation from Dr. Nolan Cabrera, from the University of Arizona College of Education, entitled, "'If Lil' Wayne can say it, why can't I?': White Male Undergraduates and the N-Word." If you were unable to attend the presentation, you can find archived Turbeville Speaker Series on our website here. Our next Turbeville Speaker Series will be on Friday, February 17, from 1:15 to 2:30pm in room 210. Dr. Eric Swank, Associate Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis at the Arizona State University, will be presenting his research entitled, "Sexual Identities, Resistance, and Protesting." We hope you will join us!

This month we co-sponsored the Kindness in Action Speaker Series with our community partners at the Ben's Bells Project. Author and TED Speaker, Clint Smith, delivered his presentation entitled, "Kindness and Masculinity: The Danger of Silence." If you were unable to attend the event, you can find his TED Talk here

Several graduate students and faculty have been traveling this month to conferences to present their research. Dr. Emily Butler and several of her students traveled to San Antonio, Texas for the Society for Personality and Social Psychology 18th Annual Convention. Dr. Butler and her students also presented four different research posters about couples and romantic partners, and their relationship to a variety of topics including sexual activity, eating, emotional awareness and body satisfaction. You can find the links to the posters presented here.

Lastly, we are looking forward to getting together again with our FMI Family Advisory Council this next month, and continuing Frances McClelland's legacy towards improving the lives of children, youth and families in Arizona and the world. Once again, thank you for your continuous support of the Institute. Don't forget to follow FMI on TwitterFacebook and our new LinkedIn page for weekly updates about the Institute.
