Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death. Additional information is available at www.mcadenver.org.

Event Image Atmosphere: Context, Detachment, and the Modern Subject in Outer Space
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Anthropologist David Valentine (University of Minnesota) will give an innovative talk based on his ethnographic research on “new space” companies in California and their conceptions of the future and the impending privatized colonization of outer space. Unlike climate scientists, space entrepreneurs take a radical view of air/atmosphere as something to be produced, fostered, reserved, and calculated in cubic meters in order to sustain life in small, closed-loop life-support systems off-planet. These visions provoke us to reconsider Earth and its resources as the naturalized context for human futures.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death. Additional information is available at www.mcadenver.org.

Title: Evolution and the genetic architecture of schizophrenia


Molecular genetic evidence for complex traits such as schizophrenia has accumulated rapidly over the last five years. In this talk, I discuss four aspects of the genetic architecture of schizophrenia that molecular genetic data has begun to clarify: a) its level of non-additive genetic variation; b) the degree of directional dominance of its risk alleles; c) the distribution of effect sizes of its risk alleles; and d) its allelic spectrum. These phenomena are important in their own rights, but also help shed light on the likely evolutionary forces that acted upon schizophrenia risk alleles over evolutionary time.

Encoding of Emotional and Neutral Contexts Along the Longitudinal Hippocampal Axis: Evidence From Single Cell and Population Coding

The hippocampus has long been implicated in the contextual gating of aversive events. Yet, the ways in which information is stored in this region and the contribution of different hippocampal areas to this process are still not fully understood. Lesion and neuroanatomical studies indicate that the dorsal hippocampus specializes in spatial processing while the ventral hippocampus is more involved in emotion and anxiety. However, it is currently unclear if these regions work as independent modules processing distinct types of information or if emotional and spatial inputs are integrated along the longitudinal axis. To investigate this question, my lab has conducted in vivo recordings from freely moving mice while animals form and retrieve contextual representations of different emotional valence. We have found evidence that space is coded in both the dorsal and ventral region in different manners. In the dorsal hippocampus, single cell representations change in response to the altered valence of a context, whereas in the ventral hippocampus space is represented through population coding and emotional valence is coded through changes in firing rate. Our data indicate that spatial and emotional information are integrated along the longitudinal hippocampal axis to properly encode episodic events.

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

“Notation Is One Thing, Analysis Another, Musical Experience a Third: What Can They Have To Do With One Another?”  

Abstract: Traditional western music notation embodies a set of visual, sonic, and motor skills that facilitate composition, performance, and aural perception. Musical notation does much more than simply describe musical features or prescribe musical action. When thoroughly mastered, such notations become largely transparent, automatically drawing attention to certain entities and processes and making them salient at the expense of other aspects of musical experience. Many 20th-Century innovations in notation can be construed as attempts by composers to call particular attention to the musical objects, ideas, and practices that were of interest to them, but that were not easily expressed with traditional notation. Other special notations were invented for use in music analysis and theory. These new systems also have their limitations.
In an attempt to characterize the effects of notational systems on music perception and phenomenology, I suggest evaluating them in terms of a series of polar oppositions: structure/infrastructure, etic/emic, description/prescription, analogue/digital, portrayal/explanation, algorithmic/heuristic, neutral/context sensitive, etc. I also propose a number of analytic tools (based on work by Cogan, Hanninen, Hasty, Lefkowitz and Taavola, Morris, Polansky, Stockhausen, Tenney, Xenakis, Uno and Hübscher) to help reveal what (especially traditional) musical notation tends to conceal: e.g., the dynamics of contour, density, segmentation, and gesture.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death. Additional information is available at www.mcadenver.org.

"Measures for Biological Insights"
Debra Goldberg
University of Colorado - Boulder

ECCR 265
Thursday, October 10
3:30-4:30 PM

ABSTRACT: In order to gain information from data, we need to be able to distill the data to show relevant patterns that lead to useful insights. This is especially important for biological data, which is generally both inaccurate and incomplete.

Measures defined in other contexts (e.g., social networks, the world-wide-web, text comparison) have proven to be helpful in the analysis of biological data. However, we have found that new or modified measures may be more meaningful to our problems, allowing us to increase our confidence in hypotheses generated computationally. Developing useful measures starts with an understanding of the data modeled by the network, making interdisciplinary collaborations essential to this process.

I will describe new or modified measures that let us better understand how networks of protein interactions evolve, align two conformations of a protein to measure its flexibility, and identify protein complexes in a hypergraph model. There are many potential applications of hypergraphs, but most will need new measure definitions, as there has been little foundational work in this area. If time permits, I’ll also mention new measures for predicting protein function and aligning two networks. I’ll also describe some novel interdisciplinary educational initiatives in K-12 and university classes.

BIO: Debra Goldberg is an Assistant Professor in Computer Science and BioFrontiers Institute at University of Colorado Boulder and core faculty in the Computational Bioscience at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, and is affiliated with Applied Mathematics at CU Boulder. Her interests include computational genomics and network analysis, as well as computer science education. She received her PhD from Cornell University in 2001 followed by a post-doc at Harvard Medical School before joining the CU faculty in 2006.

Sentences: How Words Make Meaning in Writing
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

(Special Presentation by Peter Kratzke, Department of Writing and Rhetoric.  Held in Fleming 170.)  "Simple," "compound," "complex," "compound-complex": some of the terms might be familiar, but few people truly understand--and, therefore, can control--how sentences work to create meaning. This session will explore the seemingly simple linguistic unit that is the sentence, and participants should leave with a better sense of how syntax (word order), semantics (word meaning), and grammar (word "glue") combine and can be finessed through a single principle...but you will have to attend the session to learn what is that principle! At any rate, to understand sentences, I shall argue in a view that might seem exaggerated, changes how one understands language; to change how one understands language is to change one's academic destiny.

When a language codes affectedness
Zygmunt Frajzyngier
Dept. of Linguistics, University of Colorado

The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate that (1) grammatical structures of
languages code different meanings, and (2) these meanings are different from inferences
about the meaning of a linguistic form that are obtained through the alleged connection
between the language form and the extra-linguistic universe.
These two facts require a different theoretical approach to the notion of meaning and
a different methodological approach to the discovery of meaning.
Background: The features ‘affectedness’ and ‘affect’ are usually linked with
grammatical relations and analyzed as semantic property correlated with the objects of
transitive verbs (Van Valin 2005: 57) and as potential entailments of the subjects of
unaccusative verbs (Perlmutter 1978, Dowty 1991, Levin and Rappaport Hovav 1994).
Dixon 2010: 98 considers ‘Affect’ to be a property of certain verbs, e.g. ‘hit’, ‘burn’.
The question and the hypothesis: Mina has two means of marking the last clause of an
episode. The question is what the choice of means codes. The hypothesis is that it codes a
distinction between the affected subject and all other subjects.
The larger goal: The study demonstrates that the coding of affectedness is different from
the interpretation of the properties of an argument as affected, as has been done in much
of the literature so far. The analysis herein (based on recent fieldwork) is quite different
from the one in Frajzyngier et al. 2005. The study shows that affectedness in Mina is not
a feature shared by objects of transitive verbs and subjects of unaccusative verbs, as often
claimed in contemporary literature, but rather is a feature marked by a specific formal
means, m Verb-yi, which codes the following real-world characteristics: changes in the
existential status of the subject (e.g. disappearance) (ex. 1); changes in the physical form
of the subject (ex. 2); and displacement of the subject (ex. 3a-b). The function coded by
the formal means m Verb-yi is called here ‘affectedness predication’. The demonstration
of the existence of this type of predication is a contribution to the typology of semantic
features that can be coded by the grammatical system of a language.
The argumentation: The affectedness predication can have only one argument, the
subject, as evidenced by the use of subject pronouns (ex. 3b). The subject may be
controlling or not (ex. 1-3), hence the feature [control] plays no role in the affectedness
predication. The verb in the affectedness predication may be inherently intransitive or
transitive, hence affectedness is not a correlate of transitivity (ex. 1-4) and for the same
reason it is not a passive construction.
An entity that is part of a larger object undergoing an event in the real world cannot
be the subject of the affectedness predication. Thus, the clause ‘he cut off the leg of goat’
(ex. 5a) cannot be followed by an affectedness predication with ‘leg’ as the subject (ex.
5b), but it may be followed by an affectedness predication with ‘goat’ as the subject, viz.
‘the goat is cut’ (ex. 5c).
Inherently transitive verbs that do not imply affectedness cannot occur in affectedness
predications. These include the verbs of perception (see, hear, smell), cognitive verbs
(know, think, forget), and even physical-contact verbs that do not inherently affect the
form of the object (beat, touch). The affectedness predication is not stative, as stativity is
a separate function coded by the construction m V1-V1.
Implications: The existence of the affectedness function in Mina correlates with the
absence of the passive function in the language. The causal interpretation of this
correlation may be that the feature [affectedness], in addition to its function with
intransitive verbs, subsumes the prototypical semantic characteristics of the subjects of
passive clauses in languages that have passive constructions. Mina has separate formal
means to topicalize arguments.

Event Image Intercultural & Diversity Workshop: Diversity of Gender and Sexuality
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Diversity of Gender and Sexuality
Morgan Seamont, Doctoral Student, Anthropology & staff at GLBTQ Research Center

Sexuality is often based on the sex and gender of the partners involved, however, not all cultures define gender as men and women. This session will highlight some cross-cultural practices, which emphasize different understandings of both gender and sexuality. Awareness of these different understandings will assist in teaching topics related to sex/gender; we will also discuss how to address different understandings of sex and gender when they come up in the classroom.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death.

Event Image MantraFest 2013: Yoga Music On Tour
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

If you have ever taken a yoga class or had a massage, chances are you have heard the music of Deva Premal & Miten. The recordings by this extraordinary couple have become the soundtrack for yoga studios and spas around the world. Their albums of Sanskrit mantras top New Age charts on Amazon and iTunes, with global sales in the millions.

Their fans include not only luminaries like Hollywood icon, Cher, motivational guru Tony Robbins and best-selling author Eckhart Tolle, but also health professionals, including hospice workers, midwives, and trauma counselors helping war vets and firefighters, all of whom have found solace in Deva Premal & Miten’s music. Even the Dalai Lama has sung their praises after inviting them to play at a private audience.

To celebrate the release of their new album, A DEEPER LIGHT, Deva Premal & Miten will be touring North America with another icon of the mantra-music phenomenon: The GuruGanesha Band. "The direct, daily experience that Deva and I have is that mantras support us through every challenge," says Miten. "Our mission is to share this powerful healing tool with the world. And we know that this is a mission we share with GuruGanesha. His music has always been remarkable for a depth of spiritual connection that has a real sparkle and twinkle."

GuruGanesha, who launched Spirit Voyage Records in 1999, also has a new album out titled A THOUSAND SUNS, which features vocalist Paloma Devi and cellist Hans Christian. “Deva, Miten and I have been close friends for many years,” says GuruGanesha. “This MantraFest tour promises to elevate mantra music to a new level excellence and awareness by uniting the soul power of mantra’s reigning couple — Deva Premal & Miten — with the mystical mojo of the The GuruGanesha Band.”

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death.

ABOUT

The Robert G. Athearn Lecture Series

 The late Prof. Robert G. Athearn (1914–1983) was a professor of Western History at the University of Colorado at Boulder from 1947 until his retirement in 1982. An extraordinarily productive scholar, his publications included Westward the Briton (1953), Union Pacific Country (1971) The Coloradans (1976), The Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad: Rebel of the Rockies (1977), The Mythic West in Twentieth Century America (1986), and William Tecumseh Sherman and the Settlement of the West (reprint 1995).

Professor Athearn was one of the founders as well as past president of the Western History Association, and during his career held numerous positions on historical committees, academic societies, and editorial boards. His impact as a teacher was equally great, he instructed thousands of undergraduate students over the years, and trained a score of contemporary Western historians in the profession he loved. As part of his legacy, Dr. Athearn endowed a lectureship in the Department of History at the University of Colorado at Boulder to be held on topics in Western history.

Event Image Goodbye Global Innovators?
9:30 AM - 1:30 PM

The Global Innovation Forum of the National Foreign Trade Council and University of Colorado Boulder are organizing a discussion and lunch in partnership with Boulder Chamber, Boulder Economic Council, Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, Denver South Economic Development Partnership, South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce and the Partnership for a New American Economy to explore policy issues surrounding the ability of the United States to attract and retain top global talent. The purpose is to convene students, faculty, entrepreneurs and business voices to understand how current policies affect business, startup and university communities to inform better the debate surrounding high‐skilled immigration and global mobility policies in Washington. The conference will engage business and education leaders in the region in a dialogue about the importance of public policy to innovation. It is meant to elicit stories about how individual successes contribute to the U.S. economy, understand how current policies may prevent or impede foreign‐born individuals from pursuing job‐creating activities in the United States, and attempt to draw out a discussion of how the American Government and educational system can help enhance the ability of foreign‐born individuals to contribute to the U.S. economy. Participation is free of charge thanks to the generous support of the General Electric Foundation and partnership with the University of Colorado Boulder.

Event Image Will Climate Change Cause Near-Term Human Extinction? - A presentation by Guy McPherson
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

The rate of climate change clearly has gone beyond linear, as indicated by the presence of myriad self-reinforcing feedback loops, and now threatens our species with extinction in the near term. Anthropologist Louise Leakey ponders our near-term demise in her 5 July 2013 assessment at Huffington Post. In the face of near-term human extinction, most Americans view the threat as distant and irrelevant, as illustrated by a 22 April 2013 article in the Washington Post based on poll results that echo the long-held sentiment that elected officials should be focused on the industrial economy, not faraway minor nuisances such as climate change. This presentation brings attention to recent forecasts and positive feedbacks. Sources of forecasts include the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the Hadley Centre for Meteorological Research, the United Nations Environment Programme, the Global Carbon Project, and the Copenhagen Diagnosis. None of these forecasts include selfreinforcing feedback loops, 23 of which have been triggered. Nor do these forecasts include economic collapse, the single phenomenon that might prevent our early demise, according to Tim Garrett’s (2011) paper in Climatic Change, “Are there basic physical constraints on future anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide?” Guy McPherson was born and raised in the heart of the Aryan Nation, small-town northern Idaho. He first experienced the hair-raising incident of a rifle pointed at the base of his neck when he was ten years old. The person behind the trigger was thirteen. This episode was so ordinary he didn’t bother to tell his parents for two decades. It simply never came up. The escape from the benighted village came in the form of education, in large part because McPherson’s parents were lifelong educators. To pay for his undergraduate education, which led to a degree in forestry, McPherson spent summers working on a helitack crew. Staring down a large wildfire at the age of nineteen, he realized some forces of nature are beyond the human ability to manage. More than ten years into a career in the academic ivory tower, McPherson began focusing his efforts on social criticism, with topics ranging from education and evolution to the twin sides of the fossil-fuel coin: (1) global climate change and (2) energy decline and the attendant economic consequences. His public appearances stress these two predicaments because each of them informs and impacts every aspect of life on Earth. He also speaks about our individual and societal response to these phenomena, and includes topics such as authenticity, Socratic lives of excellence, and the role and responsibility of our species in the world. McPherson's latest chapter includes abandoning his tenured position as full professor at a major research university for ethical reasons. His story is described in his memoir, "Walking Away from Empire." You can read about that book and his many others at his website: http://guymcpherson.com This event is sponsored by Local Food Shift and CU Environmental Center. Location Map: http://www.colorado.edu/campusmap/map.html?bldg=F+A Parking is available at Euclid Autopark and the buses stop at Broadway and Euclid for easy bus access.

She will speak about gender, sexuality, class and race overall. As an advocate, in 2012, she launched the social media project #GirlsLikeUS, which aims to raise the visibility of trans women.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death. Additional information is available at www.mcadenver.org.

The Media Archaeology Lab as Configurable Conceptual Object
Lori Emerson
University of Colorado Boulder
Department of English

ECCR 265
Thursday, October 17
3:30-4:30 PM

ABSTRACT: Lori Emerson will discuss how the Media Archaeology Lab has evolved over the years to become a DIY, community-driven, living archive. Depending on how you approach the MAL, it is now as much a site either of or for research and teaching as it is a site for artistic interventions, experiments, projects; an archive for obsolete media; or an archive for original works of digital art/literature along with their original platforms. Equally at home in literature departments, art departments, media studies departments, history of technology programs, computer science departments, libraries and archives, the MAL is the definition of a configurable, conceptual object.

BIO: Lori Emerson is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English at the University of Colorado Boulder and Director of the Media Archaeology Lab. She writes on and teaches digital literature, experimental writing from the 20th and 21st century, history of computing, and media theory. She is also the author of Reading Writing Interfaces: From the Digital to the Bookbound (forthcoming from University of Minnesota Press, Spring 2014) and co-editor of The Johns Hopkins Guide to Digital Media, with Marie-Laure Ryan and Benjamin Robertson (forthcoming 2014).

Hosted by Leysia Palen.

Embodied Judaism: The Sound of Ecstasy
4:00 PM

CU’s Program in Jewish Studies, the Library Archives, the Department of Religious Studies and the College of Music together with Nevei Kodesh, the Jewish Renewal Congregation in Boulder, are collaborating to present the first in a series of events that will highlight the recently acquired collection of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, the founder of the Jewish Renewal movement. Jewish Renewal is the newest movement in Judaism that works to reinvigorate modern Judaism with mystical teachings and contemplative practices influenced by Hasidism.

The Sound of Ecstasy Seminar brings together scholars, musicians and practioners to highlight the role music plays in Renewal Judaism and more specifically the role Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi has had in reinvigorating and adapting these practices to American Judaism. CU professor Yonatan Malin and Rabbi Jeffrey Summit will present scholarly work combining their diverse expertise in the area of Jewish liturgical music. Eyal Rivlin, CU Hebrew Instructor and professional musician, will join the symposium to perform music to highlight the concepts that will be presented. Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, better known as Reb Zalman, will also be participating.

Professor Malin, Assistant Professor in the College of Music at CU, will introduce new ways of hearing and understanding Jewish liturgical music, and biblical chant in particular—from both musical and spiritual perspectives. Malin’s work introduces a new paradigm for the study of Jewish music, which has largely been caught up documenting tradition and maintaining authenticity. New meanings, both personal and communal, emerge with attention and intention (kavanah)—as in Reb Zalman’s teachings and the Jewish Renewal movement more broadly.

Rabbi Summit, Research Professor in the Department of Music and the Judaic Studies Program at Tufts University, will examine the role of music in the search for deeper spiritual expression that had its genesis in the Havurah movement among Jews in the 1960s. This movement was shaped and influenced by the teachings of Reb Zalman.  Rabbi Summit will examine this music and explore the forces that re-conceptualized the role and function of song and chant in Jewish worship.

In addition to the seminar, the CU Library is curating an exhibit in the Norlin Library from materials found in the collections of Reb Zalman.  The grand opening of the exhibit will take place immediately after the symposium. 

Space is limited and RSVPs will be required for this event.  For more information, please email Meghan.Zibby@colorado.edu or call the Program in Jewish Studies office at 303.492.7143.

Event Image Embodied Judaism: The Sound of Ecstasy
4:15 PM - 6:45 PM

CU’s Program in Jewish Studies, the Library Archives and Special Collections, the Department of Religious Studies and the College of Music are presenting "Embodied Judaism: The Sound of Ecstasy." The inaugural Embodied Judaism project, which includes a symposium and exhibit, highlights the life and work of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and his role in shaping Jewish Renewal, the newest movement in Judaism, examining it as a religion, social movement and philosophy of spiritual transformation in America from the late 1940s to the present. The free symposium that launches the series is open to CU Boulder faculty, staff , students and a limited number of guests. RSVPs are required and can be made via email to Meghan.Zibby@colorado.edu or calling the Program in Jewish Studies at 303.492.7143.  Location provided at the time the RSVP is confirmed. 

The Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi Collection in the University Libraries Archives and Special Collections anchors the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive, a collaborative project between the Libraries and the Program in Jewish Studies.  Judaism is often considered a religion of the mind defined by the study and practice of Jewish law, but it also has rich traditions as a religion of the body, engaging sight, sounds, emotions and feelings of spirituality.  The Embodied Judaism series will use materials housed in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive to trace the importance of the body and soul to contemporary Jewish practice by examining how new movements of Judaism, sparked by the thinking and practices of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, emphasize song, prayer, and movement alongside study, learning and law. "The Sound of Ecstasy," the first in the series, will focus on the importance of music to awaken the spiritual. 

The October 17 symposium brings together scholars, musicians and religious practioners to highlight the role music plays in Judaism. Tufts University's Rabbi and Professor Jeffrey Summit and CU College of Music and Program in Jewish Studies Professor Yonatan Malin will present scholarly work combining their diverse expertise in the area of Jewish music. Musician and CU Hebrew Lectuer, Eyal Rivlin, will be joined by Cantor Michelle Wolf and Joe Lukasik, who will accompany the presenters as they perform musical selections that illustrate the sounds of ecstasy.  Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and his wife, Eve Ilsen, will open the event. 

The exhibit, based on photographs, papers, audio recordings and artifacts located in the Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi Collection, will be located on the southeast landing of the 2nd floor in the Norlin Libary.  It opens to the public on October 17.  Guided tours will be provided after the symposium until 6:30PM. The display features a historical depiction of Schachter-Shalomi's life and accomplishments including his role in the establishment of Jewish Renewal, the spiritual eldering movement, and his contributions to engaged interfaith dialogue. The exhibit will be up through 2014.

Event Image Ways of Knowing the Body in Buddhist Tantra and Tibetan Medicine
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Janet Gyatso, Hershey Professor of Buddhist Studies, Harvard University, will discuss the body in Buddhist Tantra and Tibetan medicine. Traditional Tibetan medicine sometimes found its Buddhist heritage and its urge for empirical knowledge of the body to be at odds, and made unusual efforts to separate itself from religious ways of knowing. At the same time, the line between yogic and sensory observation was not easy to draw. This lecture will explore how the body became the focus of some of the most interesting theoretical reflection, from the dawn of Tibetan Buddhism into the time of the height of the central Tibetan government's powers in the 17th century. This event is sponsored by the Center for Asian Studies in conjunction with Naropa University.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death. Additional information is available at www.mcadenver.org.

Event Image Elizabeth Mansfield: "Clara's Gift"
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

A fascinating evening of music, drama and song...

Glorious music, ridiculous words! Among contemporary listeners this is the near universal response to Schumann's famous song cycle "Frauenliebe und Leben." But in Clara's Gift, a very different interpretation is uncovered and celebrated, as the story of Robert Schumann and his beloved Clara unfolds. New English translations of the songs are interwoven with spoken passages from their love letters, from Janice Galloway's biographical novel Clara, and from Chamisso's poems. The evening culminates in a complete performance of this marvellous work, sung in the original German. Both the spoken texts and the songs will be performed by Oliver Award nominated actress, Elizabeth Mansfield. This event is sponsored by the Roser Visiting Artist Program.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death.

Perceiving American Political Polarization: 
Attitude Extremity, Partisan Identification, and Policy Implications

Amid ongoing political rancor, it may be useful to scrutinize Americans’ sense of political polarization. Although many people see stark political polarization in America, others see political polarization as starkly exaggerated. This talk will examine who is most inclined to see American political polarization, and why. My colleagues and I have examined data from more than three decades of nationally representative samples, from controlled laboratory experiments, and from recently conducted surveys in the contexts of presidential elections, environmental policy, and the 2011 mass shooting in Tucson, AZ. We discovered four things. First, Americans have historically exaggerated polarization between the attitudes of Democrats and Republicans. Second, the more extreme people’s own partisan attitudes are, the more polarization they perceive among other Americans. For example, the more strongly people supported a cap and trade environmental policy, the more polarization they perceived between Democrats’ and Republicans’ stances toward the policy. This pattern of polarization projection is partly because people assume that similar psychological processes influence partisan attitudes in themselves, their own political group, and their political opponents. Third, the more strongly people identify as either Democrat or Republican, the more they perceive political polarization—an effect apparently tied to in-group defensive strategies. Finally, perceptions of political polarization may contribute to arbitrary partisanship in policy evaluation. Both Democrats and Republicans exhibit strong partisan reactions to otherwise equivalent environmental policies. I (attempt to) conclude optimistically, noting that arbitrary partisanship can be mitigated by encouraging reflection on the proper role of partisanship in a healthy democracy.

The Brain On Stress: Role of Glucocorticoids In Resilience and Pathophysiology Via Novel Mechanisms

The brain is the central organ of stress and adaptation to stressors and it is a plastic and vulnerable organ throughout the life course. Among the many interacting mediators that affect brain and body function, glucocorticoids stand out because they are involved in so many different processes and via multiple cellular and molecular mechanisms, in which epigenetic mechanisms are prominent. Their actions follow a U-shaped (hermetic) dose response relationships and they have both trophic and protective effects at one end and damaging-facilitating effects at the other. This will be discussed in relation to the role of the hippocampus, amygdala and prefrontal cortex in effects of acute and chronic stress in animal models and humans. Implications for therapy of stress-related disorders will be discussed.

Event Image Visiting Artist Lecture: Xavier Toubes
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Xavier Toubes work is based in ceramic sculpture. He was born in Coruña, Spain but has been working in the US for for a number of years. “For me to be an artist is a way to know how to be in the world. Although there is a purpose in the work, it is of the poetics and a matter of discovery and rediscovery as the work progresses. The surfaces, the skin, are more like a place, a surprise with no clues as to the beginning or the movement of the hand, making and moving in layers through form, color, light: present and pulsating. I work in series, often at the same time and in different studios and locations. Somewhat I hybridize all of these, juxtaposing, destroying, covering, erasing, in a movement that generates increasing demand to be in the studio. The work becomes a language that enriches, evolves, it transforms and gives hints to materialize the internal dialogue. The self-conscious attempt to name beauty is, for me, one of the clearest pursuits, in spite of placing the artist in a tentative, anxious, and vulnerable position. It is around here where I will locate the artifice, in the attempt to coordinate what I know and the not-yet-known, persevering for a result, that is not a conclusion, but an event that is visual and compelling occupying physical and mental space. Something that is not easily consumed, something big and universal, it touches on the real, is aware of the historical moment, but un-consumed by it.” In 1989 he became involved in the creation of the European Ceramics Work Centre in s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands, and was the Artistic Director from its opening in 1991 until the autumn of 1999 when he started teaching at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has exhibited frequently in both the USA and Europe and also in Asia, and lectured in numerous Universities and international forums.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death. Additional information is available at www.mcadenver.org.

Event Image Heimrad Backer: Landscape M, curated by CU Professor, Patrick Greaney (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The photographer and poet Heimrad Bäcker (1925-2003) dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the Holocaust. Bäcker’s photographs look away from the scenes usually associated with the Shoah—barracks, gates, train tracks—and focus on the minute and incidental traces left behind in the Austrian landscape: indentations in stone, twisted steel rods, and concrete foundations. His examination of Austrian history is also a self-critical reflection on his enthusiastic participation, as a teenager, in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party. Landscape M focuses on Bäcker’s works related to Mauthausen, the largest concentration camp in Austria. This exhibit, curated by Patrick Greaney, associate professor of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, is the first of Bäcker’s work in the US and is the first to show the body of work left behind after his death. Additional information is available at www.mcadenver.org.

Gia-fu Feng and the Popularization of Daoism in America
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

At this Brown Bag event, Lucas Carmichael, Department of Religious Studies, will discuss Gia-fu Feng in the history of Daoism in America.

Because of their eclectic backgrounds and their eclectic receptions, early figures associated with Daoism in the United States tend to be marginalized and understudied; one figure in particular who has been understudied is Gia-fu Feng. In addition to his Stillpoint Foundation, Feng made his most lasting impressions as a “Daoist Master” through his translations of the Daode jing (1972) and of the Zhuangzi (1974). Feng, his associates, and his texts deserve closer attention in order to better understand the transmission of Daoist teachings in America.This event will be held in Guggenheim 201E.

TITLE:  Improving Students' Long-Term Knowledge Retention Through Personalized Review

ABSTRACT:  Human memory is imperfect. Individuals of all ages and abilities gradually forget previously learned knowledge and skills. Robust, durable learning is achieved only through periodic review. Although academic curricula could benefit from incorporating review in a comprehensive, systematic manner, two challenges must be overcome. First, students at every educational level are faced with an ongoing imperative to master new material, which demands a time-efficient means of reviewing an ever-growing body of old material.

Second, the effectiveness of review crucially depends on its timing, but efforts to predict the optimal timing have not adequately considered individual differences. To address these challenges, we developed an adaptive method for personalizing study based on a Bayesian model of forgetting that leverages psychological theory and collaborative filtering. Here, collaborative filtering involves using data from a population of students studying a variety of material to infer the dynamic knowledge state of an individual student for specific material. The method was incorporated into a semester-long middle school foreign language course via retrieval-practice software.  In a cumulative exam administered one month after the semester's end that compared time-matched study strategies, personalized review yielded a 16.5% boost in course retention over current educational practice (massed study) and a 10.0% improvement over a one-size-fits-all strategy for spaced study.  Our results demonstrate that integrating adaptive, personalized software into the classroom is practical and yields appreciable improvements in long-term educational outcomes. We discuss the impact of this experiment on the school curriculum, as well as follow-on studies we are conducting now.

 

[Both Mike and Rob will present. The work is a collaboration with Jeff Shroyer and Hal Pashler.]

Event Image Examining Traditional Navajo Moccasin Making
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

This talk will center around utilitarian objects. In the case of Navajo moccasins, what does it all mean to the Navajo community to have individuals make moccasins? The question of why is it important to the Navajo concept of self. Who can make moccasins? Why don't more Navajos make moccasins and who is filling the gap? These are a few of the questions this presentation will address.
Will's Navajo clans are coyote-pass people (mother's clan) born where the two rivers meet people (father's clan). His grandfather clans are red streak cheek people (paternal grandfather's clan) and folded arms people (maternal grandfather's clan). Will resides in Shiprock, NM for now but considers Tsaile-Lukachukai, AZ home also.
Will has a bachelor of arts degree in anthropology and in southwest studies from Ft. Lewis College in Durango, CO. Currently, he is working for the Navajo Nation Archaeology Department in the Shiprock, NM office as an archaeologist and ethnographer.
Will's professional work has taken him throughout the greater Four Corners region of the southwest and the Navajo Nation reservation. Some of his academic and scholarly interests include Navajo rock art, ceremonial systems, material culture, and language.
Will learned how to make moccasins culture of his people and continues the traditions of his culture. He has a love for the material culture of his people and continues the tradition of his culture.

Mason's research is related to studying massive amounts of Internet data in real time. Mason is also a co-founder of HackNY, which helps engineering students find their way into the startup community of creative technologists. She has received the TechFellows Engineering Leadership award, and was on the Forbes 40 under 40 Ones to Watch list and Crain’s New York 40 under Forty list.
She will talk about big data, what Bity is doing, and why it is important.

The ATLAS Speaker Series, which is made possible by a generous donation by Idit Harel Caperton and Anat Harel, hosts distinguished visitors from academia, industry and the arts as part of the ATLAS Institute’s mission to explore information and communication technologies and their effect on society. 

The series is an educational and experiential resource for students, faculty and the larger community to discuss the challenges, opportunities and innovative applications of technology. Talks usually run from 4-5 p.m. in the Cofrin Auditorium, ground floor, ATLAS 100 (enter from lobby), unless otherwise noted.

Neuroimaging and the nature of pain and emotion: New approaches and findings

Motivation: Pain and other forms of emotional distress are primary drivers of behavior and core features of many clinical disorders.  In spite of many decades of research, however, fundamental questions remain about how affective processes should be classified (is pain an emotion?) and their relationships with health and disease (are emotional appraisals directly relevant for health?) Brain-based studies can provide an important, new window into these questions. Objective brain markers for pain and emotion could support prediction and diagnosis; provide markers for psychological and drug treatments; bridge animal and human studies at the level of mechanism; integrate psychology with neuroscience and medicine; and provide a basis for re-conceptualizing the nature of pain and emotion. This hope is reflected in major new initiatives from NIH aimed at finding brain mediators of health-related behaviors.

The challenge: The success of neurophysiological approaches in understanding pain and emotion hinges on identifying brain markers that are closely linked to behavioral and subjective end-points--and can ultimately yield information beyond the measures used to define them--which has been a major challenge. Human neuroimaging, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), is one of the most promising current techniques. However, it has not yet yielded compelling brain markers for pain, emotion, or other mental phenomena.   

Approach and findings:  I describe recent efforts in my lab to a) identify fMRI-based markers for specific types of affective experiences, and b) use brain markers to  study psychological interventions. Using statistical learning approaches, we have identified a distributed brain pattern that is sensitive and specific for acute physical pain, and generalizes across individuals, studies, and types of pain.  New work also identifies other patterns related to several types of emotional experiences. Analysis of these patterns demonstrates that a) pain and emotion are fundamentally different at the brain level, though they may still interact; b) different brain patterns predict specific emotion categories and emotional experiences; and c) emotions are not processed in dedicated systems, but are constructed from interactions among many systems. We are currently testing a range of psychological interventions, including placebo effects, expectancy effects, cognitive reappraisal, and social interventions.  These interventions influence pain- and emotion-specific brain patterns in some cases. However, in many studies, psychological effects do not reverse the brain patterns indicative of pain and distress, but rather activate additional mechanisms that may change their experience in more complex ways. These findings motivate more nuanced models of the neurophysiology of pain and emotion, in which multiple brain processes mediate distinct components of pain and other emotional responses. Different interventions may work through different brain mechanisms, with distinct functional consequences for health and behavior.

"Distinguishing Users with Capacitive Touch Communication"

ECCR 265
Thursday, October 31
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

ABSTRACT: Providing us ubiquitous access to a vast array of media content and digital services, mobile devices are arguably considered the de-facto single sign-on access to all of our content and services, making user authentication more important than ever before. However, existing authentication techniques to access to these devices either require too much effort to use or are insecured. In this talk, I will present my recent work on a novel way of authenticating and identifying currently active users of a touch-screen enabled devices with capacitive touch communication. The key idea is to exploit the pervasive capacitive touch screen and touchpad input devices as receivers for an identification bit string transmitted by a hardware identification token. The token transmits electrical signals as it makes direct contact with the screen, or indirect contact through human skin.

BIO: Tam Vu is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, UC Denver. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Rutgers University in 2013, advised by Dipankar Raychaudhuri and Marco Gruteser. He has been working on wireless and mobile systems including mobile healthcare, mobile context sensing, mobile-centric network architecture for future Internet, and privacy and security protection for context services. He has an interdisciplinary interest that combines hardware and software engineering, distributed systems and wireless communications.

He is the recipient of two best paper awards at MobiCom in 2011 and 2012, flagship conferences in mobile computing. His research also received wide press coverage including NY Times, The Wall Street Journal, National Public Radio, MIT Technology Review, CNET News, and Yahoo News.

TITLE:  Not all minds that wander are lost: Neural underpinnings, dynamic control, and clinical relevance of self-generated cognition

ABSTRACT:  Despite continual sensory stimulation by the complex environment in which we live, the human mind has the capacity to overcome external constraints in favor of a different time, place, or mental perspective. Whether commuting to work or attempting to work, we often find ourselves simulating past experiences, planning upcoming activities, and reflecting on the lives of other people.  Supporting its frequent occurrence, these “self-generated thoughts” are associated with a wide variety of benefits, enabling us to confront future challenges, solve problems, and navigate our social world. At the same time, the experience can be associated with significant costs, impairing learning and psychological well-being.  Understanding the factors that give rise to this variability could help individuals harness the beneficial aspects of self-generated cognition and, in doing so, lead more productive and happier lives.  In this talk, I will approach this objective by drawing on multi-disciplinary research spanning cognitive science, neuroscience, and psychopathology.  I will first showcase self-generated cognition as a complex and heterogeneous class of cognition rooted in conceptual processing whose costs and benefits depend on multiple factors.  I will then discuss a parallel line of work suggesting that different aspects of self-generated cognition are supported by different components within a large-scale brain system called the “default network.” Here I will highlight the dynamic nature of the default network, emphasizing its interaction with executive control systems when regulating aspects of self-generated cognition.  Finally, I will conclude by discussing the psychological and clinical implications of when thought content becomes polarized or network interactions become disrupted or imbalanced.

29th Boulder Conference on the History and Philosophy of Science: Measurement Across the Sciences (Multi-Day Event)
3:30 PM

Description: Measurement plays a central role in scientific inquiry. But as science has changed over time, and new scientific disciplines have sprung up, the nature of scientific measurement has become complicated. To what extent do different scientific disciplines have a common understanding of measurement as a tool of inquiry? On the other hand, to what extent has the meaning and purpose of measurement become idiosyncratic to each discipline? And is it necessary for us to have common standards of measurement across disciplines? It is crucial for historians, philosophers, and scientists alike to reflect upon the role that measurement has played, and continues to play, across the sciences.
