Event Image Fall 2012 MFA Thesis Exhibition
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The CU Art Museum and the Department of Art & Art History present the MFA Fall 2012 Thesis Exhibition, held in the Projects Gallery of the CU Art Museum building, part of the Visual Arts Complex on the University of Colorado at Boulder campus.

Each of the major works presented by Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis in this fall's MFA exhibition focuses our attention on a constructed landscape that challenges our assumptions about what is interior vs. exterior and about what constitutes our notions of the pastoral, of home, or of childhood utopias. These sculptural installations or "imagined spaces" act as theatre sets or backdrops for actions that are about to unfold or whose narratives have been disrupted. All these works present environments hauntingly devoid of human life. What remains is only the evidence of habitation, together with a relevant display of their constituent objects. There is also a search launched, either directly or indirectly, by these projects, presenting the viewer with the echo of unanswered questions. Where are we? Who lives here? What has happened or is about to happen? Absence, longing, interrupted play, and human intervention in natural (bucolic) environments all factor as critical elements in these assembled installations. It is with anticipation that we enter and explore unfamiliar paths leading us to an expanded sense of wonder about who we are and who we once were.

-Kim Dickey, Ceramics Professor, University of Colorado Boulder 

The exhibition features: Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis 
Event Image Liminality, Luminosity, and the Everyday: Selections from the CU Art Museum's Painting Collection

Applegate, and Peter Plagens and selections from the CU Art Museum’s collection of European Renaissance and Baroque paintings.

Ranging from landscapes to minimalist fields to depictions of social space, the exhibition explores liminality and luminosity through multiple lenses.  

This exhibition is generously supported in part by the HBB Foundation and the CU Art Museum Benefactors and Members as well as the Arts and Culture Enrichment (ACE) student fees.

Event Image Encountering the Unfamiliar Through Dance: Tribal Fusion Dance as a Global Phenomenon
11:00 AM - 12:35 PM

The Internet has grown to become supra-national in its influence, eluding government regulation and attempts to control the norms of usage.  The digital commons is a self-regulating, transnational community where dancers seek fellowship for their international inspirations.  Identified as the Tribal Fusion community, participants formulate a fast-moving global exchange of music and dance that possesses a distinctly pluralistic approach to art-making.  As early pioneers of a new visual and movement culture, dancers are collaboratively defining their signature values and questioning how Internet usage impacts identity and cultural memory.  These issues will be examined with surprising and often amusing insights about our digital connectivity and emerging global citizenship through a dance performance and lecture. Presenter: Donna Mejia

Panelists scheduled: Russ Moore, John Stevenson, Dena Smith, Deb Coffin, and a student representative.
Event Image Implicit Attitudes 101
11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

This workshop provides an introduction to implicit attitudes, a research based framework that focuses on automatic attitudes that are outside a person's awareness. This framework provides a way of thinking about issues around diversity that bypasses shame and blame and moves directly to understanding the value and pitfalls associated with the kinds of generalizations that all humans make. We will look at basic concepts and findings from research related to implicit attitudes, and we will begin applying the framework to a variety of everyday situations. Participants will learn to understand and to work with the basics of implicit attitudes in both personal and work spheres. Come open to a challenging but painless framework for increasing your competence and comfort with diversity. Presenters: Glenda Russell and Andrea Iglesias.   (also offered Thursday, 12:30pm-1:45pm)

Event Image Flowing Through Conflict on Campus: Applying Ki-Aikido Principles to an Academic Environment

In this program, Ki Aikido practitioners from the university community (including faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, alumni and university administrators) will demonstrate Ki principles, facilitate attendees’ participation in basic Ki exercises, and lead a discussion of how Ki principles play out in campus life.  Presenter: Missy Schreiner

Event Image No Need to AMP it Up! I Still Can’t Hear You
3:30 PM - 4:45 PM

This session is a snapshot of attitudes and thoughts toward deafness, sign language, and people who are Deaf. American Sign Language, founded in 1817, was not recognized as a language until 1965. In 1864 President Abraham Lincoln advocated for higher education for the Deaf; however in 1880 sign language was almost doomed after Alexander Graham Bell expressed his view that it should be eradicated. Audism (introduced in 1972) and deafhood (in 2003) are current buzzwords. Many may ask, “What have we changed?” This session helps Summit participants gain insight and understanding of issues surrounding deafness; it also aims to motivate the audience to explore personal beliefs and attitudes towards disability. Presenters: Glenda Nash-Buscarello and Karen Boyd

Each of the major works presented by Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis in this fall's MFA exhibition focuses our attention on a constructed landscape that challenges our assumptions about what is interior vs. exterior and about what constitutes our notions of the pastoral, of home, or of childhood utopias. These sculptural installations or "imagined spaces" act as theatre sets or backdrops for actions that are about to unfold or whose narratives have been disrupted. All these works present environments hauntingly devoid of human life. What remains is only the evidence of habitation, together with a relevant display of their constituent objects. There is also a search launched, either directly or indirectly, by these projects, presenting the viewer with the echo of unanswered questions. Where are we? Who lives here? What has happened or is about to happen? Absence, longing, interrupted play, and human intervention in natural (bucolic) environments all factor as critical elements in these assembled installations. It is with anticipation that we enter and explore unfamiliar paths leading us to an expanded sense of wonder about who we are and who we once were.

-Kim Dickey, Ceramics Professor, University of Colorado Boulder 

The exhibition features: Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis

Event Image Dancing Beyond Borders
10:30 AM - 11:45 AM

Throughout the world, dance is a doorway to the self, the soul, and society. In this workshop, the universal language of rhythmic dance will be introduced as a simple and practical way to building connections within and across borders of all kinds. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in somatic, body-centered activities that will leave them feeling uniquely empowered within and aware of how non-verbal communication can be a resource for building bridges with diverse peoples. No dance experience is necessary. Come prepared to get moving, to have fun, and to creatively engage in community.  Presenter: Melissa Michaels

Event Image Gender Inclusive Spaces: What? Why? How?
11:00 AM - 11:50 AM

What is a “Gender Inclusive” space? How are students and people of the community impacted when residence halls, restrooms, rec centers, etc. do not provide spaces for them? In this session, we will explore what defines a gender inclusive space and what Universities and communities around the country are doing to provide these environments.  We will also explore current national trends in regard to gender inclusive spaces and what CU Boulder can do to remain competitive with our peer institutions and attract a more diverse student population. Our goal is for you to leave our session amped up about what you can do to further support our students and staff and create a supportive learning environment for all students. Presenters: Vicki Vanderwerf and Lynne Howard

Event Image Privilege, Power and Difference: How Thinking Differently About Privilege Can Promote Diversity
11:00 AM - 11:50 AM

In the book Privilege, Power, and Difference, Allan G. Johnson argues that organizational approaches promoting diversity are limited by their inability to make the problem an issue for everyone, not just women, people of color, the disabled, etc. The presentation will suggest ways of thinking about privilege that can free us to acknowledge not only our status as members of an oppressed category(ies) but also our privileged status(es), thus better enabling us to talk and act across our various categories of difference. Finally, the presentation will suggest practical actions we can take to advance the work of making lasting change. Presenters: Denice Walker, Melinda Piket-May, Nola Salisbury

Event Image Empirically Supported Framework forCreating Inclusive Classrooms: Faculty&Graduate Student Workshop
12:00 PM - 12:50 PM

Faculty and students alike want classroom environments that honor individual differences and respect the group as a whole. That ideal is easier to envision than it is to create and sustain. This workshop offers a framework for going beyond shame and blame to recognize the unintended ways that students can feel excluded from the classroom and to learn how to intervene constructively when those occasions crop up. Using research from the implicit attitudes framework, the workshop will offer faculty and graduate students concrete tools for creating classroom environments that maximize students’ learning and everyone’s sense of engagement in the learning process. Presenters: Glenda Russell and Andrea Iglesias.

Event Image Ubuntu: An Exploration into African Community Life Through Dance, Songs, Stories, Proverbs
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Ubuntu is a Zulu word meaning “I am because we are.”  Ubuntu embodies an African philosophy of our "interconnectedness" as humans, and is a definitive backdrop to a healthy community life. In this participatory workshop, we will use songs, dance, stories and metaphors as vehicles for exploring the various characteristics of a thriving community.  In an engaging and fun environment, we will take a cross-cultural look at the ideals of African communal living, and their implications for modern society. The goal is to deepen our understanding of African community values, highlighting their relevance in our journey towards becoming citizens of a “global village.”  Presenters: Nii Armah Sowah and Mecca Madyun (also offered  at 1:45-3:15pm)

Event Image “Miss Representation” Film Screening
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful.  Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Miss Representation uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Presenter: Hannah Wilks

Event Image Ally Actions
1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

Hilf Memorial Lecture in Geotechnical Engineering
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

20th Jack W. Hilf Memorial Lecture in Geotechnical Engineering

"Seismically Induced Lateral Earth Pressures: If not Mononobe-Okabe, then what?"
Nicholas Sitar

Abstract: Methods for evaluating the seismically induced lateral earth pressures gradually evolved from the seminal Japanese work performed in the 1920’s. The resulting design procedures suggest large dynamic loads during strong ground motion. However field evidence from recent major earthquakes fails to show any significant problems with the performance of retaining structures designed for static earth pressures only. Similarly, the results of recent and ongoing centrifuge experiments indicate that seismically induced lateral earth pressures are significantly less than those estimated using the most current design methods based on the Mononobe-Okabe assumptions. The presentation will focus on latest results from centrifuge model studies and recent observations in large earthquakes, and their implications for a rational seismic design of retaining structures and basement walls.

Biosketch: Nicholas Sitar is the Edward G. Cahill and John R. Cahill Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley. He received his undergraduate degree in Geological Engineering from the University of Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, in 1973 and his Ph.D. in Geotechnical Engineering from Stanford University in 1979. After receiving his Ph.D., he spent two years teaching in the Geological Engineering Program UBC. He joined the faculty in Geotechnical Engineering at the University of California at Berkeley as an Assistant Professor in 1981 and was promoted to Professor in 1990. He served as the Director of the University of California Earthquake Engineering Research Center from 2002 to 2008. His professional and research interests range from various aspects of static and seismic slope stability to groundwater modeling and groundwater remediation. He has authored and coauthored over 170 publications in geotechnical engineering, engineering geology, groundwater and groundwater remediation. He has received a number of awards for his work, including the Huber Research Prize from ASCE, the Douglas R. Piteau Award from AEG, and the Presidential
Young Investigator Award from NSF.

Event Image Vamp it up! Open Mic
3:30 PM - 4:45 PM

At CU-Boulder we have certain affinities, ideas, things that make us both alike and different. Our event will focus on those stories through a unique partnership between the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Minority Affairs (CACMA) and Dr. Andrea Feldman's course 'Multicultural Rhetoric' of the Program for Writing in Rhetoric. We will hear written vignettes on identity, roles, and relationships at our diverse campus, thriving with individual stories, and will invite others to climb on board at our open mic forum. By writing, and then speaking about identity, students both learn about themselves and where they stand in the greater community around them while giving power to their individual stories.  Presenter: Marissa Herrmann

Event Image FREE Screening :: The Welcome
5:00 PM

In the spirit of Veterans Day, Program Council, in assistance with the Veteran Services Program, is proud to present 2 film screenings to honor our military veterans and their service to our country.

The first of which is V-Day 11.11.11, a volunteer-organized documentary that portraits American veterans and their service and sacrifices on Veterans Day 2011. Through this feature-length film, the audiences gain insight into what life is like for veterans during peace time and at war. It was originally releas
ed in May of this year and was directed by John Goheen of Loyola University-Chicago. See the Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/294523970647756/ 

The second screening is The Welcome, an Audience Award Winner at the Mill Valley, Ashland Independent and Naples Film Festivals in 2011. In an unusual setting, the film follows returning veterans to a five day healing retreat, through which we are able to experience the pain, anger and fear through poetry.

Both films will hold Q&A panels with producers and photographers involved with the movies after a brief break following the screening.

"The Welcome" Showing and Panel
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Veteran's Services Office presents: "The Welcome" Showing and Panel on Wednesday, November 14th from 6:00-9:00 PM at Old Main.

"The Welcome" offers a fiercely intimate view of life after war: the fear, anger and isolation of post-traumatic stress that affects veterans and family members alike. As we join these vets in a small room for an unusual five day healing retreat, we witness how the ruins of war can be transformed into the beauty of poetry. At the end, when this poetry is shared with a large civilian audience, we begin to understand that all of us are a vital piece of the welcome as veterans try to find their way back home.

Event Image Reclaiming the Human Inheritance: Multicultural Humanities Education at CU-Boulder
9:30 AM - 10:45 AM

Since the Civil Rights Era, undergraduate educators have struggled to develop humanities curricula that meaningfully reflect the rich multicultural heritage of the United States and provide students with what Michael Oakeshott calls “an initiation into the human inheritance.” This presentation outlines a non-coercive and anti-hegemonic “funds of knowledge” approach to humanities education that is based on both current research into the cultural nature of human development and best practices in critical multicultural curriculum development. CU-Boulder students, faculty, and administrators will take away strategies for reclaiming humanities education for human rights and human dignity, at CU-Boulder and beyond. Presenter: Anna MacBriar

Event Image Fall 2012 MFA Thesis Exhibition
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The CU Art Museum and the Department of Art & Art History present the MFA Fall 2012 Thesis Exhibition, held in the Projects Gallery of the CU Art Museum building, part of the Visual Arts Complex on the University of Colorado at Boulder campus.

Each of the major works presented by Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis in this fall's MFA exhibition focuses our attention on a constructed landscape that challenges our assumptions about what is interior vs. exterior and about what constitutes our notions of the pastoral, of home, or of childhood utopias. These sculptural installations or "imagined spaces" act as theatre sets or backdrops for actions that are about to unfold or whose narratives have been disrupted. All these works present environments hauntingly devoid of human life. What remains is only the evidence of habitation, together with a relevant display of their constituent objects. There is also a search launched, either directly or indirectly, by these projects, presenting the viewer with the echo of unanswered questions. Where are we? Who lives here? What has happened or is about to happen? Absence, longing, interrupted play, and human intervention in natural (bucolic) environments all factor as critical elements in these assembled installations. It is with anticipation that we enter and explore unfamiliar paths leading us to an expanded sense of wonder about who we are and who we once were.

-Kim Dickey, Ceramics Professor, University of Colorado Boulder 

The exhibition features: Abby Bennett, Ryan Everson, Chase Folsom, Nicholas O'Brien, Joanna Powell, and Summer Ventis

Nuclear Korea
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Dr. Jerry Peterson, Professor in Department of Physics, will discuss DPRK Nuclear Weapons Development.

The two halves of the Korean Peninsula have pursued very different directions with the opportunities that derive from nuclear fission. The Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea has had a long program to develop the materials for nuclear weapons, and has demonstrated its success by testing.

Has this program been in pursuit of a legitimate search for security? An expression of Chuch'e, extreme self-reliance? Or a means of extortion? The Republic of Korea, on the other hand, has increasingly based its economic prowess upon nuclear electricity, with 30% of its power from clean nuclear reactors and a strongly increasing global role as a supplier of these large and highly technical facilities. The origins and successes of these two approaches will be analyzed.

Event Image Implicit Attitudes 101
12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

This workshop provides an introduction to implicit attitudes, a research based framework that focuses on automatic attitudes that are outside a person's awareness. This framework provides a way of thinking about issues around diversity that bypasses shame and blame and moves directly to understanding the value and pitfalls associated with the kinds of generalizations that all humans make. We will look at basic concepts and findings from research related to implicit attitudes, and we will begin applying the framework to a variety of everyday situations. Participants will learn to understand and to work with the basics of implicit attitudes in both personal and work spheres. Come open to a challenging but painless framework for increasing your competence and comfort with diversity. Presenters: Glenda Russell and Andrea Iglesias.  (also offered Tuesday, 11:00a.m.-12:15p.m.)

Event Image TEACH, ENGAGE, EMPOWER: Generating Inclusive Practices through Cross-Cultural Classroom Dialogues
12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

Classroom dialogues between students and CU’s largely minority Housing and Dining Services staff provide experiential learning that raises cultural awareness and promotes cross-cultural understanding. This session will present recent assessment data that demonstrate how using facilitated dialogues as a teaching tool increases awareness of diversity and moves the University toward greater respect and inclusion. Dialogues integrated into course content embody culturally responsive teaching, promote civic engagement among students, and empower underrepresented members of the University community. Facilitated classroom dialogues at CU offer a pedagogical model for fostering inclusive practices that other universities could replicate.   Presenters: CU Dialogues Program

Panelists will then join in a discussion with the audience about raising awareness of differences through engaging students with a different set of cultural practices and perspectives. Presenters: Larry Bell and David Aragon
Event Image The Student Perspective on Religious Diversity
2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Ethnic diversity is commonly talked about in the classroom setting, but religious diversity is less apparent and not as frequently addressed. According to surveys of the American public, most people know very little about Christianity--the majority faith in the U.S.--and almost nothing about non-Christian religions and New Religious Movements. This panel discussion seeks to improve the religious literacy of the CU-Boulder community. Students from various minority religious communities will share a bit about their religious beliefs and practices, their experiences at CU-Boulder, and ways that faculty and staff can be more aware of the needs of diverse religious practitioners. Presenter: Kristin Peterson

Event Image CS Colloquium: Jeffrey Sarnat on "Getting Off the Monorail..."

Getting Off the Monorail
or: How Twitter Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Monads

Jeffrey Sarnat
Software Engineer
Twitter

ECCR 265
Thursday, November 15
3:30-4:30 PM

Twitter is one of the most heavily trafficked sites on the internet, with over 140 million active users and serving over 400 million Tweets per day. Historically, nearly all of Twitter's traffic has been served by a monolithic application written in Ruby on Rails, referred to internally as "the monorail." Although Twitter has seen remarkable growth in its six years of existence, scaling this monolithic architecture has proved to be both error-prone and expensive, not only in terms of computational efficiency, but in terms of developer efficiency as well.

More recently, Twitter has begun the process of replacing the monorail with a Services Oriented Architecture (SOA), where the services are JVM processes--mostly written in Scala--that communicate with one-another asynchronously over a network connection. Naively written, asynchronous code is often both tedious to write and difficult to reason about; at Twitter, the asynchronous code implementing Scala services is both simple and beautiful, thanks in large part to an internally-developed, open-source library called Finagle. 

In this talk, I will attempt to explain how Finagle's strong grounding in programming language theory has facilitated this transition to an SOA, and how Scala's advanced features allow for a library as expressive as Finagle to have been written in the first place.

Jeff Sarnat (B.S. in Computer Science., CMU 2002, Ph.D. in Computer Science, Yale 2010) is a former programming languages researcher who currently works for Twitter on a team that builds large scale distributed systems. He enjoys candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach. Follow him on Twitter as @Eigenvariable.

Event Image Paupers and Peasants and Princes and Kings: Reconstructing Society in Late Bronze Age Greece
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Studies of Mycenaean Greece often focus on the vast divide between the most powerful and the least powerful individuals: the king and the officials of the palace on the one hand, and lowly laborers on the other. Between those extremes, however, were local leaders, administrators, and skilled craftsmen whose activities we can document through texts and the archaeological record. This paper proposes a new model of Mycenaean culture that incorporates evidence about king, slaves, and the middling ranks of society.
