Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Changes to Off-Campus Access for American Chemical Society Publications
All Day

The CU Boulder Libraries have recently made a change to off-campus access for the American Chemical Society  (ACS) publications. ACS publications will no longer be accessible using the campus VPN. Instead, users will need to log in to the Library’s EZProxy using this link: https://colorado.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://pubs.acs.org/, which is accessible through the Library’s catalog. 

For more information, including a link to a browser extension that makes it easier for you to access Library resources off-campus, see: http://libguides.colorado.edu/c.php?g=498993&p=4156698. 

We have made this decision following a number of inappropriate and excessive use violations of ACS, which resulted in the publisher disabling access for the entire campus for a period of time. This creates a huge inconvenience for all of our users. EZProxy gives the Library better control over who can access our resources and thus protects us, as well as all CU Boulder students, faculty and staff, in instances of misuse. 

If you have any questions or concerns or are having difficulty accessing our resources, please contact us using the information on this page: http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us. 

On behalf of the Libraries,

Esta Tovstiadi, E-resources Librarian

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $200 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $200! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

BrownBag -Akasha Faist - Constraints to ecological restoration in California vernal pools
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Akasha Faist

Constraints to ecological restoration: how exotic plants and water depth influence restoration success in California vernal pools.


Vernal pools, or temporary wetlands, are a dynamic ecosystem commonly dominated by endemic annual plants and are closely tied to precipitation. Within this framework, I will examine ecological barriers, and the potential solutions to these barriers, limiting restoration success in a long term vernal pool restoration project. For this practice research presentation, I will focus on my vernal pool work and touch on current and future research within this and other ecosystems.

Colloquium, “Gravitational Waves, Colliding Black Holes, And Tornadoes In Space-Time"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: David Reitz, LIGO Laboratory and University of Florida, Gainesville

Abstract: The first direct detections of gravitational waves in late 2015 were made possible by a forty year experimental campaign to design, build, and operate LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory. In this colloquium, I’ll cover gravitational waves and what makes them so difficult to detect and at the same time such powerful and unique probes of the universe. I’ll also give a flavor of the somewhat complicated history of how LIGO was conceived and built. Most of the presentation will focus on the interferometers, the LIGO detections and their astrophysical implications. Time permitting, I’ll give a preview of where LIGO intends to go in the next decade and beyond.

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

CompSci Colloquium: Oliver Kroemer (Univ. of Southern California)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Learning Robot Manipulation Skills through Experience and Generalization

ABSTRACT: In the future, robots could be used to take care of the elderly, perform household chores, and assist in hazardous situations. However, such applications require robots to manipulate objects in unstructured and everyday environments. Hence, in order to perform a wide range of tasks, robots will need to learn manipulation skills that generalize between different scenarios and objects.

In this talk, Kroemer will present methods that he has developed for robots to learn versatile manipulation skills. The first part of the presentation will focus on learning manipulation skills through trial and error using task-specific reward functions. The presented methods are used to learn the desired trajectories and goal states of individual skills, as well as high-level policies for sequencing skills. The resulting skill sequences reflect the multi-modal structure of the manipulation tasks.

The second part of the talk will focus on representations for generalizing skills between different scenarios. He will explain how robots can learn to adapt skills to the geometric features of the objects being manipulated, and also discuss how the relevance of these features can be predicted from previously learned skills. The talk will be concluded by discussing open challenges and future research directions for learning manipulation skills.


BIO: Oliver Kroemer is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Southern California (USC), working together with Gaurav S. Sukhatme in the Robotic Embedded Systems Lab (RESL). His research interests are in machine learning and robotics, with a focus on learning grasping and manipulation skills. He received his master's and bachelor's degrees in engineering from the University of Cambridge in 2008. He was a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems from 2009 to 2011. In 2014, Oliver defended his PhD thesis at the Technische Universitaet Darmstadt. He was a finalist for the 2015 Georges Giralt PhD Award for the best robotics PhD thesis in Europe. In 2015, he first worked as a postdoctoral researcher at TU Darmstadt before starting his current position at USC.

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Operations Research in Land Exchange

With geometric modeling techniques, one can represent the feasible solutions of problems in operations research as objects in high-dimensional space. The properties of these objects reveal information about the underlying problems and lead to algorithms. 

We model an application in land exchange as a clustering problem where the clusters have to adhere to prescribed cluster sizes. In this approach, we connect least-squares assignments, cell complexes, and the studies of polyhedra. Further, we report on how these results were implemented in practice. The devised methods lead to various tools for more general questions on big data.

Event Image Ethics and Compliance Brown Bag: Conflicts of Interest
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

January’s monthly Brown Bag series will feature a presentation by Pamela Rosse from the Research & Innovation Office focusing on the subject of Conflicts of Interest. The University of Colorado Boulder encourages and supports entrepreneurship, efforts by its researchers to partner with industry and commercialize inventions developed at the university. However, such undertakings carry with them the potential for actual or perceived conflicts of interest. Common concerns include intentional and unintentional research bias that favors a commercial enterprise; diversion of time, talent and ideas from university-sponsored research; diversion from a student’s intended academic course; misuse of university resources and the like.

In her presentation, Rosse will review specifics of what creates conflicts of interest for members of our research community at all levels, as well as share context around why the topic matters to the university. A review of past cases at CU will highlight various circumstances creating investigations and details on how investigations are managed, as well as elaborate on typical outcomes following an investigation. Attendees will gain insight about best practices to prevent and mitigate conflicts of interest in research. During the hour session, ample time will be provided for audience Q&A.

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Thursday, January 26, 2017, 5:00 PM
Eaton Humanities 150 
A reception will follow the lecture in the Humanities Living Room

Prof. Wilkinson’s primary specialties are federal public land law and Indian law. In addition to his many articles in law reviews, popular journals, and newspapers, his fourteen books include the standard law texts on public land law and on Indian law. He also served as managing editor of Felix S. Cohen's Handbook of Federal Indian Law, the leading treatise on Indian law. The books he has written in recent years, such as 1992's The Eagle Bird, are aimed at a general audience, and they discuss society, history, and land in the American West. He won the Colorado Book Award for Messages From Frank's Landing, a profile of Billy Frank, Jr. of the Nisqually Tribe of western Washington. In his book, Blood Struggle: The Rise of Modern Indian Nations, he poses what he calls "the most fundamental question of all: Can the Indian voice endure?"  In his latest book The People Are Dancing Again: The History of the Siletz Tribe of Western Oregon, Professor Wilkinson writes about how the history of the Siletz Tribe is in many ways the history of many Indian tribes: a story of heartache, perseverance, survival, and revival. Prior to joining the faculty of Colorado Law School, Charles Wilkinson practiced law with private firms in Phoenix and San Francisco and then with the Native American Rights Fund

Event Image Public Lecture with Professor Nils Roemer
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The Program in Jewish Studies, the William A. Wise Law Library at the University of Colorado Law School, and cosponsors at the University of Colorado Boulder will honor International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a public lecture by visiting scholar Professor Nils Roemer and the highly acclaimed international exhibit Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich. Both are free and open to the public.

 

Professor Roemer’s public lecture, “The Holocaust: Then and Now, Spanning the Void,” will take place Thursday, January 26, 7:00-8:30 p.m., in Wittemyer Courtroom (Room 101) in the Wolf Law Building on the CU Boulder campus, one day before International Holocaust Remembrance Day (January 27). RSVPs are appreciated as space is limited. Please email CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu or call 303-492-7143.

 

Professor Roemer’s lecture is the fifth annual event hosted by CU Boulder’s Program in Jewish Studies in honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. 

 

The voids and empty spaces in the Jewish Museum in Berlin evoke destruction and absence. The "Memory Void," one of the symbolic spaces on the grounds of the museum, which was designed by Daniel Libeskind, recalls the Holocaust as well as the many lives that might have been had the millions of people who died in the Holocaust lived to see another day. In his lecture, Professor Roemer will explore absences and voids as important aspects of remembrance. An awareness is apparent in communal and family remembrances but often obscured in public commemorations in museums and on Holocaust remembrance days. Professor Roemer will develop the theme of absence and advance models of remembrance that view the Holocaust as a past event within the context of an annihilated future.

 

Nils Roemer is the Stan and Barbara Rabin Professor in Holocaust Studies and the Director of the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas. He received his PhD in History from Columbia University in 2000.

 

In addition to his numerous published articles, Professor Roemer is the author of Jewish Scholarship and Culture in Nineteenth-Century Germany: Between History and Faith (2005) and The Story of Worms: German Cities – Jewish Memories (2010). He is currently finishing a book-length study on Central European Jewish travel writing in the 20th century.

 

Professor Roemer serves as a board member for the Leo Baeck Institute in London and is an external reviewer for multiple scholarly journals. He has received numerous fellowships, including from the Center for Advanced Jewish Studies at the University of Pennsylvania.

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Free lecture: Comanche Archaeology and the Theater of War
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Dr. Severin Fowles reveals new archaeological discoveries that complicate and extend a revisionist understanding of intercultural power dynamics in the colonial Southwest.   Evidence demonstrates, for much of the colonial era, some of the most ambitious imperial actors were Native American—and that the Comanche in particular -were involved in a strange form of "reversed colonialism," startling the European colonizers by attempting to colonize them in return.

Dr. Severin Fowles is an Associate Professor at Barnard College and Columbia University who has spent the past two decades investigating the pre-colonial, colonial, and modern histories of the American Southwest.

Lecture is sponsored by Western Cultural Resource Management and presented with cooperation from CU-Boulder Department of Anthropology & the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History.
