Cartoonist R. Sikoryak presents Terms & Conditions
Wednesday, April 12, 2017 - 4:00pm

Join New Yorker cartoonist R. Sikoryak for the launch of his latest graphic novel, Terms and Conditions. For this project, Sikoryak tackles an infamously dense legal document, the iTunes Terms and Conditions.  In a word for word 94-page adaptation, Sikoryak hilariously turns the agreement on its head – each page features an avatar of Apple cofounder Steve Jobs juxtaposed with a different classic strip such as Mort Walker’s Beetle Bailey, or a contemporary graphic novel such as Craig Thompson’s Blankets, Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, or Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant. A book signing will follow Sikoryak's presentation.   Sponsored by the Department of English and the School of Individualized Study.   Author Bio: Cartoonist R. Sikoryak is the author of Masterpiece Comics (Drawn & Quarterly). His comics and illustrations have appeared in the New Yorker, The Onion, GQ, MAD, SpongeBob Comics, and Nickelodeon Magazine, as well as on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Sikoryak is in the speakers program of the New York Council of the Humanities, and he teaches in the illustration department at Parsons The New School for Design and at The Center for Cartoon Studies. Since 1997, he's presented his live cartoon slide show series, Carousel, around the United States and Canada. He lives in New York City with his wife, Kriota Willberg.   For more information, contact Daniel Worden at dxwind@rit.edu   (Wednesday, April 12th, 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM - Campus Center Bamboo Room, 2610)

The Inergenerational Reproduction of Child Maltreatment
Tuesday, April 18, 2017 - 5:30pm

This research examines developmental pathways related to the origins of child maltreatment which includes neglect, as well as physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. There is growing evidence that maltreatment is reproduced across the generations and that maltreatment victims are at increased risk for engaging in maltreating behaviors. Unfortunately, there is little information about the mediating pathways that might provide an explanation for why maltreatment begets maltreatment. We examine two developmental pathways that may serve as bridges between maltreatment victimization and maltreatment perpetration: involvement in adolescent problem behaviors and experiencing precocious transitions to adulthood. Using prospective longitudinal data from the Rochester Youth Development Study, we show a significant relationship between maltreatment victimization and maltreatment perpetration. Adolescent problem behaviors (e.g.., alcohol use, delinquency, and aggression) and precocious transitions (e.g.., dropping out of school and independent living), as well as experiencing multiple transitions and multiple problem behaviors serve as mediators of this intergenerational relationship. We discuss the theoretical and policy implications of these results. Terence P. Thornberry Distinguished University Professor Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice University of Maryland Founding Principal Investigator of the Rochester Youth Development Study, a three-generation panel study begun in 1986 to examine the causes and consequences of delinquency and other antisocial behaviors.
