7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Don't Believe Everything you Read: Texts, Archaeology, and the Destruction of the Greek City of Corinth in 146 BC

Generations of scholars have relied heavily on ancient literary accounts of the Roman sack of Corinth in the mid-2nd century BC to interpret archaeological remains in the city. New archaeological evidence offers numerous challenges to both ancient descriptions and modern interpretations and shows how many Corinthians dealt with the aftermath of this well-known ancient destruction. This free lecture will be held in the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History Paleontology Hall.

3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

"Unsupervised Grammar Induction with Linguistically Expressive Grammars"

Abstract:
In recent years, there has been a lot of interest in the unsupervised induction of grammars from part-of-speech-tagged text. The two standard approaches to this task are based on unlabeled dependency grammars or probabilistic context-free grammars, and return structures that are difficult to interpret linguistically. In this talk I will propose an alternative that is based on a formalism called Combinatory Categorial Grammar (CCG). CCG is a lexicalized formalism that associates words with complex symbolic categories that capture their syntactic behavior. An unsupervised CCG induction system has to automatically identify an appropriate set of language-specific categories from raw text. It may therefore seem that using CCG needlessly complicates the already difficult task of identifying the correct grammatical structures in an unsupervised fashion. However, I will show that using CCG for unsupervised grammar induction has actually a number of advantages. First, it makes our approach more useful, since we return linguistically interpretable structures. Second, it greatly simplifies the modeling task. Although CCG is strictly more expressive than context-free grammars, I will define a non-parametric Bayesian model that is much simpler than corresponding models for context-free grammars. Finally, unlike other approaches, our grammar remains robust when parsing longer sentences, performing as well as or better than other systems.

Julia Hockenmaier is assistant professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is an NSF CAREER-award recipient. Before coming to Illinois, she was a postdoc at the University of Pennsylvania, where she was working on applying statistical parsing algorithms to protein folding. Her PhD thesis (University of Edinburgh) was a runner up for the British Computer Society Distinguished Dissertation award.

Event Image NASA’s Roadmap to Tomorrow’s Missions with NASA Administrator Charles Bolden
12:00 AM

This lecture will be held at 2:45 p.m. on April 18, 2014.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden will discuss America’s space program and the challenges the agency faces for the missions of tomorrow. Using a stepping stone approach that builds on the capabilities of our nation’s unique orbiting laboratory – the International Space Station – the growing abilities of commercial providers to reach space, and a new rocket and crew vehicle to travel to deep space, NASA is extending human reach into the solar system even as its amazing science missions are rewriting textbooks about our universe.

The agency currently has spacecraft speeding toward Jupiter and Pluto and roving on Mars, and is searching for planets that could potentially harbor life beyond our solar system. An unprecedented mission to capture and redirect an asteroid to an orbit near to Earth is in the planning stages, and the Space Launch System and Orion Crew Vehicle are in development to take astronauts to the asteroid and on to Mars. In a time of fiscal austerity, the agency’s strategic approach will continue to achieve the big milestones that no one else can attempt.

This lecture has been moved to a new venue. So we can plan appropriately for attendance, please register by clicking the "register" icon above.

Doors open at 2:30 p.m., lecture begins at 2:45 p.m.

Event Image CU Art Museum Announces New Director, Sandra Firmin
All Day

The CU Art Museum is very pleased to announce Sandra Firmin as the new director. Sandra Firmin will begin as director on April 21, 2014, replacing current interim director, Stephen Martonis.

Sandra Q. Firmin has been Curator of the UB Art Galleries, gallery of the University of Buffalo SUNY, since 2003. She holds a M.A. from Bard College’s Center for Curatorial Studies (2002), and was awarded a Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative Fellowship at Arcadia University Art Gallery (2003). Firmin co-curated the traveling exhibition Kim Jones: A Retrospective (with Julie Joyce). The exhibition was accompanied by the catalogue “Mudman: The Odyssey of Kim Jones” (MIT Press, 2006), co-edited with Joyce. In 2010, Firmin organized Artpark: 1974–1984, an exhibition and publication (Princeton Architectural Press, 2010) chronicling the seminal years of an innovative residency program located in Lewiston, New York, just north of Niagara Falls. At the UB Art Galleries, Firmin has established an annual residency program in which artists are presented with an empty gallery to transform over time while open to the public. These commissioned projects aim to forge meaningful interactions between artists and diverse groups of people while acknowledging a turn toward research-based site-specific approaches in contemporary art that have at their core experimentation and ephemerality. Firmin is currently co-chairing (with Julian Cox) the Association of Art Museum Curators’ annual conference, which will be held in Detroit this year, where she will be moderating a panel Urban Ecologies and Cultural Exchange.

Adolescent Behavioral Disinhibition and Substance Use Disorders

"Behavioral disinhibition is a highly heritable general propensity to not constrain behavior in socially acceptable ways, to break social norms and rules, and to take dangerous risks, pursuing rewards excessively despite dangers of adverse consequences". This trait, often identifiable in prepubertal children, predicts significant antisocial and substance problems in adolescence and adulthood. Its heritability and behavioral expression suggest the possibility of underlying abnormal brain function. To assess that we did functional magnetic resonance imaging in 81 adolescents, 14-18 years old, as they played a game requiring repeated choices doing a risky or a cautious behavior. Participants included male and female patients in treatment for severe conduct and substance problems, and male and female community comparison youths. We considered 3 contrasts: male vs. female community youths, male community vs. patient youths, and female community vs. patient youths. Before both risky and cautious behaviors community females showed much less brain activity than community males, but females better adjusted their behavior to changing reward contingencies. Meanwhile, in both sexes patients showed much less brain activity than community youths. When making risk-vs.-cautious choices, patients' brains were not "working right".

Russia The New Anti-Gay Capital of the World
Public Lecture with Masha Gessen
April 24, 12:00PM - 1:30PM
University Memorial Center, Aspen Room
Attendees are welcome to bring own lunch

As one of Russia's most outspoken LGBT activists, Masha Gessen will discuss how Russia launched its anti-gay campaign and how it is being used to mobilize Putin's constituency around the notion of "traditional values" as well as provide Russia with a national identity it has lacked for 25 years.

Masha Gessen is a bilingual Russian-American journalist.  Born in the Soviet Union, she immigrated with her parents to the United States as a teenager at a time when many other Soviet Jewish families were leaving the USSR.  She returned to live and work in Russia in the 1990s, where she reported on Russia’s political and cultural situation from the early 1990s to the present. Following a slew of homophobic legislation adopted by Russia’s government in 2013, she re-immigrated to the US with her family later that year. Gessen is the author of The Man Without A Face (2012), an acclaimed and controversial biography of Vladimir Putin as well as Dead Again: The Russian Intelligentsia after Communism (1997), Ester and Ruzya: How My Grandmothers Survived Hitler’s War and Stalin’s Peace (2004), Blood Matters: From Inherited Illness to Designer Babies, How the World and I Found Overselves in the Future of the Gene (2008), and Perfect Rigor: A Genius and the Mathematical Breakthrough of the Century (2009). She has written for The New Republic, Granta, Slate, Vanity Fair, US News and World Report and The New York Review of Books and The New York Times. She recently edited, together with Josh Huff-Hannon, Gay Propaganda: Russian Love Stories (2014), a collection of narratives by Russian gay and lesbian community in response to Russia’s anti-gay legislation. She is currently at work on a book about the Tsarvnaev brothers – the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing in April 2013. 

Masha Gessen's visit is part of the annual Russian Culture Week, presented by the Russian Studies Program. This year's series runs from April 21-25. Gessen's visit is made possible with support from the GLBTQ Resource CenterLGBT Studies Programthe Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures, the Department of English, the Program in Jewish Studies, the Department of History, the Program in Journalism and Mass Communication, the International Affairs Program, the Department of Political Science, the Women's Resource Center, Women and Gender Studies, the Dennis Small Cultural Center, the International Student and Scholar ServicesKeshet Colorado and the Boulder Bookstore.

The University of Colorado Boulder welcomes acclaimed Russian-American author, journalist, and LGBT activist Masha Gessen for a discussion of her newly released book Words Will Break Cement: The Passion of Pussy Riot.

Words Will Break Cement: The Passion of Pussy Riot
A public talk by Masha Gessen
April 24, @ 7PM-9PM
Eaton Humanities, Room 150
Free and Open to the Public
Space is Limited - Please RSVP to glbtqrc@colorado.edu

On February 21, 2012, five young women of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot, clad in neon-colored dresses and tights, performed a "punk prayer" begging the Mother of God to "get rid of Putin" in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. They were quickly arrested, tried and sentenced to prison but the incident captured international attention and footage of their performance went viral. People across the globe recognized this as not only a fierce act of political confrontation but also an inspired work of art that, in a time and place saturated with lies and deception, found a new way to speak the truth. Gessen's riveting account tells how such a phenomenon came about. Drawing on her exclusive access to the members of Pussy Riot and their families, including her interviews with them during the time they were imprisoned in Russian penal colonies, she reconstructs the personal journeys that transformed a group of young women into artists with a shared vision, gave them the courage and imagination to express it and endowed them with the strength to endure the devastating loneliness and isolation that has been the price of their triumph.

Masha Gessen is a bilingual Russian-American journalist. Born in the Soviet Union, she immigrated with her parents to the United States as a teenager at a time with many other Soviet Jewish families were leaving the USSR. She returned to live and work in Russia in the 1990s, where she reported on Russia's political and cultural situation from the early 1990s to the present.

Event Image Saturday Physics Lecture Series, "Quantum Matter" by Professor Michael Hermele
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The University of Colorado Boulder Department of Physics presents the Saturday Physics Series Lecture, "Quantum Matter" by Professor Michael Hermele. Abstract: We live in a quantum mechanical world. All matter is built from particles that obey quantum mechanical laws, ranging from quarks and nucleons, to electrons, to atoms and molecules. These building blocks of matter are tiny, and it is often said that quantum mechanics is only important for very small objects. But this is only partly true, as many macroscopic forms of matter are intrinsically quantum, ranging from metals to neutron stars and beyond. This talk will explore the fascinating world of quantum matter. Saturday Physics Lectures are intended for adults and high school students. The event is free and open to the public.

Transcending Temptation Through Abstraction: A Construal Level Theory Approach to Self-Control

Despite remarkable reasoning and intellectual capacity, people often choose to act in ways that are contrary to their goals and values.  Successful self-control requires people to prioritize their more valuable yet more distant ends when faced with tempting alternatives in the immediate here-and-now.  In this talk, I describe a theoretical approach inspired by construal level theory (Trope & Liberman, 2003; 2010) to try to explain when and why people succeed and fail at self-control.  This approach proposes that how people subjectively represent, or construe, events systematically impacts these decisions.  I will review evidence that high-level construal (the use of cognitive abstraction to extract the essential and goal-relevant features common across a class of events), relative to low-level construal (the process of highlighting the incidental and idiosyncratic features that render a particular event unique), enhances self-control.  I will also discuss the novel insights and contributions this work has for basic theory and practical applications.
