Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Talk title: The Psychology of Social Class

Abstract: 
Social class is defined by an individual’s level of material and social resources and perceptions of one’s position in the class hierarchy relative to others. Though scholars have examined social class for centuries—particularly in sociology, health psychology, and epidemiology—social-psychological insights into the experience of social class have lagged far behind those of other disciplines. In this talk, I will discuss research that examines how social class influences patterns of social perception and relationship strategies. Specifically, lower social class heightens awareness of the mental states of others whereas higher social class heightens independence and personal control beliefs. The talk will highlight varied methods (e.g., experimental, ethological, psychophysiological) used in the psychological study of social class along with the future directions of this research.

Event Image Visiting Artist Scholar: Patricia Reilly
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Patricia L. Reilly is an associate professor of art history at Swarthmore College. Her work investigates the intimate connection between the practical and theoretical activities of Renaissance artists, and she considers these in light of the larger intellectual and cultural environments in which they took part.

This event is part of the Visting Scholar Program.

The Visiting Scholar Program is organized to explore the discipline of art history—its cultural connections, its methodological pursuits, and its changing nature—by focusing extensively on the research and insights of individual academic experts. Three to five highly regarded art historians and/or art critics speak at a public lecture presenting current research and published papers. During their week long visit, they work closely with graduate students enrolled in the visiting scholar seminar class.

Event Image “Opportunism and Collaboration in Nazi Occupied Greece”: A Lecture with Devin Naar
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

"'They Threw Our Bones into the Sea': Opportunism and Collaboration in Nazi Occupied Greece"

A lecture with Visiting Holocaust Scholar Devin E. Naar


Monday, January 26 @ 7PM
Old Main Theater
Free and Open to the Public
Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu

In conjunction with International Holocaust Remembrance Day, January 27, 2015, the Program in Jewish Studies welcomes this year's Visiting Holocaust Scholar Devin E. NaarMarsha and Jay Glazer Chair in Jewish Studies, Assistant Professor of History, and Chair of the new Sephardic Studies Program at the University of Washington, for a lecture and colloquium.


The question of collaboration remains one of the most sensitive and contested issues regarding the study and memory of the Holocaust in Greece today, especially in the major port city of Salonica (Thessaloniki). On the eve of the war, Salonica was home to the country’s largest Jewish population, numbering 56,000; in 1945, less than 2,000 remained. Another casualty of the occupation was the city’s vast Jewish burial ground, which covered more than eighty acres and was once the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe. During the Nazi occupation, local authorities initiated the destruction of the cemetery and subsequently erected the city’s university campus on top of it. Marble tombstones were used for construction projects throughout the city. 


This presentation will explore the rationale underpinning the demolition of the Jewish cemetery and how the processes at work during the Nazi’s occupation provided an opportunity to resolve an on-going conflict regarding the status of the Jewish burial ground and preexisting aspirations to expand the nearby university. During the pre-war period, local Jewish leaders argued that the tombstones “spoke,” that the inscriptions narrated the history of the city and ought to be preserved as monuments of national patrimony. The competing interests came to a head during the occupation. Even if the stones “spoke,” who was prepared to listen?


Drawing on previously unstudied archives of the Jewish community, records from the local chamber of commerce, and newspapers in Judeo-Spanish, Greek, and French, this talk presents a window into the confrontation and negotiation between the Jewish community of Salonica and the Greek state over urban space and the national narrative in the context of the Nazi occupation. Controversy over the place of the Jewish dead ultimately served as a metaphor for the uncertain place of the living.


Devin E. Naar is the Marsha and Jay Glazer Chair in Jewish Studies, Assistant Professor of History, and Chair of the new Sephardic Studies Program at the University of Washington. He completed his Ph.D. in history at Stanford University where his dissertation, “Jewish Salonica and the Making of the ‘Jerusalem of the Balkans,’ 1890-1943,” received the department’s award for best dissertation. A former Fulbright scholar to Greece, Naar has served as a fellow in the Society of Scholars at the University of Washington Center for the Humanities, and also sits on the academic advisory council of the Center for Jewish History in New York.

 Born and raised in New Jersey, Dr. Naar graduated summa cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis, where he wrote an award-winning senior thesis. Following a year in Greece as a Fulbright Scholar, Dr. Naar began his PhD in History at Stanford University, where he won an award for excellence in teaching. Dr. Naar’s dissertation, “Jewish Salonica and the ‘Making of the Jerusalem of the Balkans,’ 1890-1943,” received the Elizabeth Spillman Rosenfeld Prize for best written dissertation in Stanford’s Department of History in 2011.

Talk title: The Influence of Context and Changing Information on Choice

Abstract: 
Everyday we make hundreds of choices. Some are seemingly trivial -- what cereal should I eat for breakfast? Others have long lasting implications -- what stock should I invest in? Despite their obvious differences, these two decisions have one important thing in common; both are sensitive to context. In this talk, I will first describe my research investigating how context influences preferences in multi-alternative, multi-attribute choice behavior. I will provide experimental evidence that context effects from consumer choice research arise in other domains such as perception. This suggests context effects are a general feature of human choice behavior and calls for a common theoretical explanation that applies across paradigms. I will present a new model called the multi-attribute Linear Ballistic Accumulator (MLBA) model as a generalized explanation of these effects.

In the second half of the talk, I will describe my work investigating the impact of changing information on choice behavior. Most past decision research has focused on “stationary” decisions where a choice is made on the basis of fixed, unchanging information. However, in the real world, many decisions are made in the face of dynamically changing information. To assess how the decision process adapts to changes of information, I developed the piecewise Linear Ballistic Accumulator (pLBA) model. I will demonstrate the model using results from a simple perceptual decision-making task, and show how early information influences the integration of later information. The talk will conclude with a discussion of future directions including research investigating the impact of changing information on context effects in multi-alternative choice and the integration of the two models, MLBA and pLBA. I will also discuss future applications of the models to health-related decision-making.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Speaker: Patty Limerick, Center of the American West

“Fractured Disciplines Meet Hydraulic Fracturing:  A Cost/Benefit Analysis of Collaboration Between the Humanities and Natural Sciences”

The study of controversial environmental issues offers higher education a distinctive route to redemption and revitalization.  In the last half century, academic specialization has grown in power, both expanding and constraining our understanding of the world.  With its array of struggles and contests over natural resources, the contemporary American West offers a remarkable laboratory for experiments in reuniting the fractured world of expertise, with the issue of hydraulic fracturing offering a particularly promising prospect for hybrid approaches. In an era of anxiety about the decline in humanities majors and course enrollments, the need for cooperation between the humanities and natural sciences has never been more urgent.  And yet that collaboration can position people attempting this collaboration on a balance beam between risk and reward, frustration and satisfaction, vexation and exhilaration.  In this talk, Patty Limerick will offer a forthright consideration of adventures encountered and lessons learned on that balance beam.

Co-Sponsored by the Environmental Studies Program and the School of the Environment and Sustainability.

Talk title: Novel epigenetic mechanisms of cocaine action and depression in mouse nucleus accumbens

Abstract: Neural function requires accurate control of gene transcription in response to environmental stimuli. Epigenetics plays a core role during this process by modulating gene expression without changing underlying DNA sequences. It has therefore been implicated in various neuropsychiatric disorders, though many of the details are still unknown. With help of modern genomic tools and novel epigenetic concepts largely developed in proliferating cultured cells, I aim to decipher out the epigenetic underpinnings of neural diseases in vivo by using mouse models of drug addiction and depression. 1) I found unique combinations of chromatin changes/signatures, which accompany cocaine’s regulation of gene expression in nucleus accumbens (NAc), a key brain reward region. Importantly, they have a widespread correlation with pre-mRNA alternative splicing. Based on this, I further identified a novel role of splicing factor A2BP1 in cocaine behavioral abnormalities. 2) Recently, TET oxidases were recognized to mediate the conversion of methylated DNA to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), which may lead to DNA demethylation. I found TET1 is selectively downregulated in NAc by repeated cocaine administration, which enhances behavioral responses to cocaine. Furthermore, I demonstrated 5hmC inductions at genes that have pivotal roles in drug addiction. Such alterations correlate with increased gene expression and alternative splicing. Additionally, certain 5hmC changes sustain long after cocaine exposure that indicates 5hmC as a persisting epigenetic mark in drug addiction. 3) We showed that β-catenin mediates pro-resilient effects after social defeat stress. Through genome-wide β-catenin enrichment mapping, we recognized Dicer1-important in microRNA biogenesis--as a novel β-catenin target. Moreover, after excising β-catenin from NAc in the context of chronic stress we displayed β-catenin-dependent microRNA regulation associated with resilience. In summary, my studies reveal several novel modes of epigenetic regulation of cocaine action and depression, and hence provide new insight into the biological basis of neuropsychiatric disorders. I look forward to continuing my neuroepigenetic efforts to study more biologically significant questions across a broader range of neuropsychiatric disorders.

CS Colloquium: Jan Hoffman (Yale)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Formal Reasoning About Quantitative Properties of Software

ABSTRACT: Quantitative properties such as execution time, memory consumption, and power usage determine whether a software system is useful in practice. A precise understanding of quantitative properties of
software is also essential to ensure safety (e.g., no stack overflow) and security (e.g., no side-channel vulnerabilities). Yet, it is still hard to reason about quantitative characteristics of software at development time.

In this talk, Hoffman will present novel techniques for modeling and analyzing quantitative properties of software. These techniques are designed to meet two major challenges of quantitative analyses: precision and compositionality.

First, he will present polynomial amortized resource analysis (PARA); a static analysis system for automatically deriving worst-case resource bounds which are parametric in the input sizes of programs. The analysis can be integrated in a type system (for functional programs) or a Hoare logic (for imperative programs). A novel algebraic structure, which we call multivariate resource polynomials, enables the reduction of bound inference to efficient LP solving. PARA is naturally compositional and derives bounds for a wide range of non-trivial programs. Experiments with implementations of PARA in the programming language Resource Aware ML and in the tool C4B for C programs demonstrate that the analysis is precise, efficient, and reliable.

Second, Hoffman will briefly describe two applications of the ideas of PARA to real-world problems: (1) a quantitative reasoning technique for proving lock freedom of concurrent data structures and (2) a framework
for deriving formally verified stack-space bounds for compiled x86 assembly code at the C level.

Finally, he will talk about future projects that use quantitative methods to reason about privacy and security.

BIO: Jan Hoffmann is an Associate Research Scientist in Zhong Shao's group at Yale University. His research interests are in the intersection of programming languages and formal methods with a focus on quantitative
properties of software. He is known for his work on automatic static cost analysis of programs and the design and implementation of Resource Aware ML.

As co-PI of the NSF-funded VeriQ project, co-PI of the DARPA-funded CURB project (award pending), and Key Personnel in the DARPA-funded HACMS project, he currently works on resource-bound analysis for C
programs, detection of space/time vulnerabilities in Java bytecode, and formal verification of quantitative properties of the CertiKOS hypervisor kernel.

Jan received his PhD from LMU Munich in 2011 under the direction of Martin Hofmann. He has been supported by scholarships of the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the German National Academic Foundation
(Studienstiftung). In the past five years, he coauthored 15 peer-reviewed articles that appeared at venues such as POPL, PLDI, LICS, CAV, and ESOP.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Title:
Searching for the Language Switch: The Invasion of Executive Control into the Psycholinguistics of Bilingualism 

Abstract: Switching back and forth between tasks is known to be more difficult than steadily performing a single task. From this perspective, people who speak more than one language regularly engage in a puzzling behavior often referred to as code-switching. Bilinguals spontaneously switch languages when conversing with other bilinguals, sometimes with great frequency, and even though nothing obvious compels them to do so. Experimental investigation confirms the presence of robust processing costs associated with both language switching and non-linguistic task switching but using methods that differ from naturally occurring switches in a number of critical ways. In this talk I will show that fully voluntary switching is less costly than previously assumed, sometimes even cost-free. In addition, direct comparisons between language- and task-switching, and analysis of control over unintended language switches, reveal dissociations in brain mechanisms underlying mixing in linguistic and non-linguistic domains, and preservation of control over language selection in aging. Such results imply that language control is a “special case” with modular mechanisms that have little to do with general executive control – and this seems inconsistent with reports that bilinguals might be more efficient switchers than monolinguals. I'll discuss what properties could make language special, and how a better understanding of this might help us achieve greater efficiency in switching in other domains (e.g., switching between writing a paper and checking e-mail).

Robert Miles was a senior majoring in both BM in bassoon performance and BS in Environmental Engineering. He was loved by everyone, and was always wiling to help a friend in need. Rob was passionate about music. He loved playing his bassoon and was very much invested in the College of Music. His most recent musical accomplishment was his performance of the highly virtuosic woodwind quintet by Samuel Barber with his undergraduate quintet at a formal concert in Grusin just a few days before the accident. After the concert, Rob, along with fellow quintet members were glowing and were euphoric about their performance. Rob also was a phenomenal contrabassoon player and was able to play with elegance and flair. 
 
In addition to chamber music, Rob was a member of the Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, Quintet and basketball band. Rob was preparing for hist final senior recital in spring. Some works from his recital will be performed at the memorial.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Title: Using Computational Models to Examine Age-Related Changes in Neural Activity during Decision-Making

Abstract: Decision-making is an important task that individuals of all ages must engage in on a daily basis.  Extensive work suggests that the normal aging process leads to significant structural and functional declines in the frontostriatal brain networks implicated in decision-making.  This can often lead to poorer performance for older adults in decision-making tasks compared to younger adults.  In this talk I present two studies that use a combination of computational modeling and fMRI to identify age differences in neural activity associated with specific cognitive processes during decision-making.  Study 1 shows that neural responses in striatal and medial prefrontal regions to reward prediction errors decline with age, while responses to reward outcomes are maintained.  Study 2 uses a more demanding state-based decision-making task where individuals must consider how actions affect changes in their future state.  In this study we find evidence of compensatory activation of lateral prefrontal regions in older adults that is related to a model based measure of how current actions affect changes in one's future state.  This suggests that older adults may recruit additional brain structures during cognitively demanding decision-making tasks to achieve the same level of performance as younger adults.  I end the talk by discussing future directions in decision neuroscience across the lifespan, and current work aimed at exploring how genetic differences can affect learning and decision-making.

Talk title: Striatal Circuits and Behavioral Choreography in Health and Disease

Abstract: The basal ganglia are critically involved in a variety of behavioral functions, ranging from motor control to cognitive flexibility and reward processing. These behaviors are regulated by different subtypes of neurons in the striatum, which form discrete pathways that route the flow of information through the basal ganglia. My research combines genetically modified mice with molecular genetic and optogenetic approaches to measure and manipulate the function of specific striatal cell types and their synaptic connections. I will describe how these striatal circuits organize actions into sequences and routines, under normal conditions as well as in mice carrying genetic mutations associated with autism spectrum disorders. This research highlights fundamental principles governing basal ganglia circuit function, providing a framework for further investigation of the synaptic and molecular architecture of striatal circuits, and their dysfunction in disease states like autism and addiction.

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

LASP is a unique research environment, where many work along the boundaries between science, engineering, satellite operations, and technology development. As an instrument scientist at LASP, Andrew Jones gets to work on projects such as launching sounding rockets and calibrating the next-generation of instruments for the GOES satellites, to working with students on designing and building CubeSats. He also interprets scientific data from operational satellites, develops new data products, and constantly strives to understand how we can build the next generation of instruments better. Of course, this type of work can not be achieved in isolation, and being able to leverage the resources at LASP and CU-Boulder, as well as national and international collaborations means that life is never boring.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Title:
Scaling Models of Human Semantic Abstraction

Abstract: Human semantic memory develops over a lifetime of linguistic and perceptual experience. Laboratory experiments can probe the end product of the process of semantic abstraction, or can study the process at a small scale using well-controlled stimuli. But a full understanding of the mechanisms that drive semantic abstraction requires the study of models that learn over realistic data at a scale that humans do. Indeed, the models that perform best at small scales do not readily scale up to human-scale amounts of data, and relatively “dumb but scalable” models end up generating impressively complex representations when trained on sufficient data. I will present some recent work from my lab exploring random vector accumulation models based on theories of associative memory. These models learn incrementally from linguistic corpora, making surprising predictions about semantic development, and can also integrate large-scale perceptual data from our crowdsourcing project, the NSF Semantic Pictionary Project. Because humans are both the producers and consumers of such a large amount of the data we wish mine for knowledge, models of human semantic abstraction can offer unique insights not captured by purely data-driven machine learning techniques. I will end with a few applied examples from my lab using human semantic models in clinical informatics, automated synthesis of the neuroimaging literature, optimizing passwords, and intelligent tutoring systems.

Title:
 Interactive visualization of facts extracted from natural language text

Abstract:  In natural language processing, the summarization of information in a large amount of text has typically been viewed as a type of natural language generation problem, e.g. "produce a 250 word summary of some documents based on some input query". An alternative view, which will be the focus of this talk, is to use natural language parsing to extract facts from a collection of documents and then use information visualization to provide an interactive summarization of these facts.

The first step is to extract detailed facts about events from natural language text using a predicate-centered view of events (who did what to whom, when and how). We exploit semantic roles in order to create a predicate-centric ontology for entities which is used to create a knowledge base of facts about entities and their relationship with other entities.

The next step is to use information visualization to provide a summarization of the facts in this knowledge base. The user can interact with the visualization to find summaries that have different granularities.  This enables the discovery of extremely uncommon facts easily, unlike large scale "macro-reading" approaches to information extraction.

We have used this methodology to build an interactive visualization of events in human history by machine reading Wikipedia articles (available on the web at http://lensingwikipedia.cs.sfu.ca).

Establishing Authority in the Classroom

Tamara Milbourn, Lead 2014–15, Education

What does “authority” look like in university classrooms? Where does it come from? Many instructors would like to have efficient and respectful classrooms—classrooms in which ideas are deeply examined, homework gets done (on time), test scores are high, and everyone is cordial to one another. This workshop will discuss issues related to classroom authority—such as trust—and help you reflect on your classroom presence as a TA.

Talk title: From neuron to need: The neural circuitry and motivational properties of survival behaviors.

Abstract: Animals survive by responding to constantly changing conditions and needs. Over time, evolution has selected for neural circuits that ensure a robust behavioral response to essential needs. What features of the central nervous system enable such flexible yet goal directed behavior? Using the fundamental need of hunger as an entry point, I have characterized the circuits formed by neurons sensing nutrient need and uncovered how activity of these neurons motivates an animal to find and consume food. I found that AGRP neurons, a small starvation-sensitive neuron population, transmit nutrient need to distinct regions of the brain using a segregated, parallel, and redundant output configuration. To understand how the activation of AGRP neurons motivates the complex and flexible behavioral repertoire necessary for seeking and obtaining food, I examined how activity of these neurons reinforces feeding behavior. I found that these homeostatic neurons signal nutrient deficit by evoking an unpleasant motivational state that promotes food-seeking. This model suggests AGRP neuron activity is conceptually similar to withdrawal and motivates the animal to exit this state by finding and consuming food.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Talk title: Facial Cues in Social Categorization: Cognitive and Neural Mechanisms
Abstract: Given the complex social nature of human society, how do perceivers make sense of all available information when forming impressions of others? In my talk I'll discuss two related lines of research addressing this question. The first will focus on trait attributions (e.g., physical strength) arising from a specific facial cues, and how these features can be co-opted to form impressions that are specific to the context in which they are perceived (e.g., racial prejudice). The second examines the mechanisms involved in integrating multiple sources of information about others, specifically exploring how incongruent information (e.g., information at odds with one's stereotypes) is resolved to facilitate perceiving others accurately.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art Opening Reception
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

On view: February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.

The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.

Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees.

French playwright Molière’s comic masterpiece skewers religious hypocrisy, mindless piety and sexual deceit was so daring at the time of its writing that audience members could be excommunicated for seeing it. Tartuffe tells how a “man of the cloth” worms his way into the gullible heart of Orgon, a rich family man, and tries to take him for all he has. It takes a desperate trap by Orgon’s wife Elmire to expose the imposter.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Talk title: The social self: Understanding the subtle social determinants of behavior

Abstract: In our culture, a dominant model for the self is that of a single individual separated from others through their unique set of traits, preferences, and thoughts. This conceptualization, however, fails to recognize that the self is largely social in nature, with a great deal of the self-concept defined by one's social identity and the groups to which one belongs.  In this talk, I will argue that much of behavior is driven by these social identity concerns and that this influence is often obscured from conscious awareness.  I will then present data from three separate lines of research which each provide evidence for the subtle social determinants of behavior. Together, this work demonstrates that social identity processes exert a ubiquitous influence, directly modifying our attitudes, behaviors, emotions, and goals so that they become congruent with those of other ingroup members.  In addition, the findings  document the power of social processes to influence behavior across a diverse set of domains, ranging from our emotional responses to music to the behavioral influence of advertising exposure.

Title: Translational Clinical Science in the Psychosis Prodrome: From Biomarker Development to Early Intervention

Abstract: A body of evidence suggest that up to one third of ultra high risk youth (adolescents who exhibit recent subtle positive symptoms as well as declines in social, emotional, motor and cognitive functioning) will go on to develop a psychotic disorder such as schizophrenia within a two year period. While the ultra high risk or prodromal period represents a promising opportunity to improve etiological understanding and intervene prior to onset (when third variable confounds can cloud research and treatment), to date, we are unclear about what differentiates those who do go on to develop a psychotic disorder, from the phenotypically similar adolescents who do not. Furthermore, preliminary evidence suggests that while early interventions may be effective in reducing transition rates, the available treatments are associated with significant costs and side effects, and factors unique to this population significantly limit efficacy. Taken together, this suggests a critical need for effective biomarkers and targeted interventions. As psychosis onset typically occurs at the end of the adolescent period, promising empirically driven conceptualizations point to the significant role that adolescent neurodevelopment may play. To this end, understanding aberrant processes during adolescent neuroreorganization may help to significantly improve etiological understanding, bolster early identification, and inform interventions. In this presentation, I discuss characteristics and research priorities in the psychosis prodrome and then review my ongoing biomarker and treatment development studies. Specifically, I focus on the relationship between adolescent motor and brain development, presenting longitudinal behavioral and imaging research that suggests that abnormalities in movement reflect a pattern of aberrant neurodevelopment that can eventually lead to the onset of psychosis. In addition, I discuss basic psychopathology research from my laboratory that was used to inform the development of an ongoing exercise-based targeted cognitive rendition trial. Finally, I will discuss plans for future projects and emphasize the significant utility of cross-disciplinary collaboration in this area.

Visiting Artist Lecture: Extrapolation Factory
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The Extrapolation Factory is an imagination-based studio for design-led futures studies founded by Elliott P. Montgomery and Chris Woebken. The studio focuses on developing future scenarios embodied as artifacts in familiar, present-day contexts. The Extrapolation Factory proposes a method for collaboratively envisioning possible futures with diverse participants, experts and non-experts, and doing so in a variety of accessible ways. With this work, the studio is exploring the value of rapidly imagined, prototyped, deployed and evaluated visions of possible futures on an extended time scale. The Extrapolation Factory has worked with partners and organizations such as Autodesk Research, UNICEF, and TED Active.

We would like to thank our students for making the Visiting Artist Program possible with funding from art and art history student activities fees.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Math and science are often thought of as challenging subjects that can prevent children from being successful in school. However, many aspects of math and science resonate well with students’ hearts and minds. New teaching and learning practices have changed the look of math and science and these novel formats are often unfamiliar to parents, students, and educators. CU Professors Edd Taylor & Valerie Otero will reveal aspects of math and science learning environments that are inviting and empowering and demonstrate how math and science appeal to curiosity and problem-solving instincts.Taylor and Otero will also discuss the rationale for current changes in math and science classrooms (e.g. solving problems in non-traditional ways), as well as the changing roles for parents in this somewhat unfamiliar space.

Creticum Vinum Excellens: The Role of Cretan Wine in the Roman Economy
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The island of Crete has never received sufficient attention in discussions of the Roman economy, even as Crete’s economy flourished throughout history as a waypoint for shipments of goods throughout the Mediterranean and also as an exporter in its own right. New archaeological evidence now compels us to reconsider the role of Crete as jugs in which Cretan wine was packaged in have been found in almost every province of the Roman world. Dr. Gallimore will discuss Roman trade in Cretan wine from the 1st-6th c. CE, including investigating the mass appeal of this product to the ancient Romans.

By Molière
Translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Lynn Nichols

French playwright Molière’s comic masterpiece skewers religious hypocrisy, mindless piety and sexual deceit was so daring at the time of its writing that audience members could be excommunicated for seeing it. Tartuffe tells how a “man of the cloth” worms his way into the gullible heart of Orgon, a rich family man, and tries to take him for all he has. It takes a desperate trap by Orgon’s wife Elmire to expose the imposter.

A verbal and visual treat, Tartuffe delivers its warning against freeloaders in the most delightful way.”

Nigel North

“I remember going to a remarkable recital, one which I wish I had the ability to give: it was one of Nigel North’s Bach recitals, and I was bowled over by how masterful and how musical it was. A real musical experience.”
-Julian Bream

“Perhaps he is the greatest performer of the instrument of all time. Transcriptions from cello music featured in the first half reminded us of North’s wonderful fluidity and subtlety of expression, which enables him to knit together lines of melody in such a way as to imply rich harmony . . . the basic sincerity of his approach comes over well in live recitals . . . and the famous “Ciaconna” made a very moving concluding item to one this year’s better Birmingham concerts.”
-Birmingham Post (England)

SoloDuo

“SoloDuo’s Carnegie Hall concert was one of the more memorable of the Weill season. It is hard to say what left more of an impression: their remarkable blend, their sublime artistry or their impeccable technique. Do not miss a chance to hear them.”
-The New York Concert Review

“SoloDuo guitarists break barriers. It was a magical evening.”
-San Francisco Classical Voice
Event Image Tartuffe
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

By Molière
Translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Lynn Nichols

French playwright Molière’s comic masterpiece skewers religious hypocrisy, mindless piety and sexual deceit was so daring at the time of its writing that audience members could be excommunicated for seeing it. Tartuffe tells how a “man of the cloth” worms his way into the gullible heart of Orgon, a rich family man, and tries to take him for all he has. It takes a desperate trap by Orgon’s wife Elmire to expose the imposter.

A verbal and visual treat, Tartuffe delivers its warning against freeloaders in the most delightful way.”

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Talk title: Optical interrogation of neural circuits underlying cognitive behaviors in mice

Abstract: 
Recent developments in mouse physiology and optogenetics have enabled the study of cortical
microcircuits underlying simple neural computations. Combining these approaches with behavioral
paradigms originally developed for primates promises to enable circuit-level investigation of cognitive
processes in mice. In this talk, I will describe ongoing efforts to use 2-photon calcium imaging and
optogenetic perturbation during performance of a memory-guided visual discrimination task to better
understand the cortical basis of information processing and storage in distributed neocortical regions.

In this presentation and group discussion we’ll look at how faculty at CU Boulder have been using video across the curriculum, from Religious Studies and Planetary Science to History and Business.

How Do the Media Engage Academics in Discussions?
Kathy Kelsey, PhD Candidate, Geological Sciences and Elizabeth Koebele, Lead 2014-15, Environmental Studies

Metacognition is the process of “thinking about one’s own thinking,” and research shows that students with better metacognitive skills do better academically. In this workshop we will hear from two CU graduate students who recently designed and conducted a study of student metacognition. Come learn about the results of their investigation and discover some simple things you can do as an instructor to help your students improve their metacognitive process, whether you teach a lab, recitation, or are responsible for an entire course.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Talk title:  Functional variation in neuromodulatory genes as a source of behavioral diversity

Abstract: Evolutionarily ancient neuromodulatory systems play an important role in mood and behavior. Variation in these systems is thought to contribute to inter- and intra-species behavioral diversity and differences in susceptibility to mental illness in humans. In order to elucidate the contribution of genetic variation in neuromodulatory genes to behavioral diversity, I have focused on two candidate genes: the vasopressin V1a receptor, which plays a major role in social behavior, and the serotonin 1a receptor, which modulates anxiety and stress-related behaviors.

Variation in repetitive elements in the promoter of the V1a receptor gene have been associated with both individual and species level differences in receptor expression and social behavior in voles. I demonstrated that these variants directly contribute to differences in gene expression and behavior by creating transgenic mice carrying different versions of this repetitive element. The highly mutable nature of repetitive DNA elements may thus represent an evolutionary mechanism for generating sociobehavioral diversity.

Within the serotonin 1a receptor system, a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the gene promoter has been linked to differences both in depression risk and anti-depressant responsiveness in humans. Using a combination of epidemiological and post-mortem approaches in humans, I found that this SNP has region-specific and developmental impacts on gene expression and is associated with increased risk for psychiatric hospitalization. To further pursue the functional effects of this SNP across the life course, I have created a humanized mouse model of this SNP, which will be a major focus of future research.

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

This class will take us through the process of writing a play. Starting with writing exercises to help us learn about how a play works, we will compose, collaboratively workshop, revise and then perform a staged reading of our own 10-minute plays. Beyond our writing, we will also discuss playwriting in the American theatre. What do playwrights do? How do new plays get produced? The class will also be given the opportunity to submit their plays to national young playwrights contests.

 Talk title: The Emperor’s New Drugs: Antidepressants and the Placebo Effect

Abstract: Antidepressants are supposed to work by fixing a chemical imbalance, specifically, a lack of serotonin in the brain.  But analyses of the published and the unpublished data that were hidden by the drug companies reveals that most (if not all) of the benefits are due to the placebo effect. Some antidepressants increase serotonin levels, some decrease serotonin, and some have no effect at all on serotonin.  Nevertheless, they all show the same therapeutic benefit.  Instead of curing depression, popular antidepressants may induce a biological vulnerability making people more likely to become depressed in the future.  Other treatments (e.g., psychotherapy and physical exercise) produce the same short term benefits as antidepressants, show better long term effectiveness, and do so without the side effects and health risks of the drugs.

Event Image Using Qualtrics Survey Tools for Teaching and Research : Learners Lunch @ Music
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Have you ever needed to gather information from a large group of people, but don't want to spend time collecting and counting paper response forms? This session will demonstrate the use of Qualtrics, a powerful online survey suite available free to all CU faculty, staff, and students. Qualtrics is an internet-based tool for creating and deploying surveys via website links or email. Users can create surveys with a wide range of question types, collect and track detailed data from respondents, and analyze data with built-in reporting tools, all through a browser interface with no additional software to install. Instructors and program leaders can use Qualtrics to collect information quickly from large groups of people, and researchers can use it to easily gather large datasets for analysis. Please feel free to bring your Mac or PC laptop to explore along with Qualtrics features demonstrated during this session. David Rickels

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.
