A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 
Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The exhibit in the Norlin Library 3rd floor NW Triptych gallery (across from Special Collections), "Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation," highlights key transformations in the production of Tibetan texts—from woodblock prints to digital searchable text. The display includes woodblock carvings of The Treasury of Knowledge, which is among the texts generously gifted by the Tsadra Foundation to the CU-Boulder Libraries. The gifted collection covers the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
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 Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

ALTERNATE ENDINGS, presented in honor of World AIDS Day (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

CUAM presents the new project by Visual AIDS: ALTERNATE ENDINGS, a video program for the 25th anniversary of Day With(out) Art. The videos commissioned by Visual AIDS feature works about the ongoing HIV/AIDS pandemic. The videos highlight the diverse voices of seven artists that use video to bring together charged moments and memories from their personal perspective amidst the public history of HIV/AIDS.

 Artists featured: Rhys Ernst, Glen Fogel, Lyle Ashton Harris, Hi Tiger, Tom Kalin, My Barbarian, Julie Tolentino.

Day Without Art began on December 1st, 1989 as a national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. To make the public aware that AIDS can touch everyone, and inspire positive action, some 800 U.S. art and AIDS groups participated in the first Day Without Art, shutting down museums, sending staff to volunteer at AIDS services, or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS. Since then, Day With(out) Art has grown into a collaborative project in which an estimated 8,000 national and international museums, galleries, art centers, AIDS Service Organizations, libraries, high schools and colleges take part.

Using a mix of found footage, live performance, still photos, and robotic cameras the ALTERNATE ENDINGS videos weave together connections between personal stories and public memories. They share tales of love and breakups, sing songs of defiance, celebrate action, and remember those whom we have lost. Through these diverse stories we are invited to reflect upon our complex past as we envision divergent narratives and possibilities for the future, because AIDS IS NOT OVER.

Visual AIDS initiates public actions and programs, publishes an annual poster and copyright-free broadsides, and acts as press coordinator and clearing house for projects for Day Without Art / World AIDS Day.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

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.
ALTERNATE ENDINGS, presented in honor of World AIDS Day (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

CUAM presents the new project by Visual AIDS: ALTERNATE ENDINGS, a video program for the 25th anniversary of Day With(out) Art. The videos commissioned by Visual AIDS feature works about the ongoing HIV/AIDS pandemic. The videos highlight the diverse voices of seven artists that use video to bring together charged moments and memories from their personal perspective amidst the public history of HIV/AIDS.

 Artists featured: Rhys Ernst, Glen Fogel, Lyle Ashton Harris, Hi Tiger, Tom Kalin, My Barbarian, Julie Tolentino.

Day Without Art began on December 1st, 1989 as a national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. To make the public aware that AIDS can touch everyone, and inspire positive action, some 800 U.S. art and AIDS groups participated in the first Day Without Art, shutting down museums, sending staff to volunteer at AIDS services, or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS. Since then, Day With(out) Art has grown into a collaborative project in which an estimated 8,000 national and international museums, galleries, art centers, AIDS Service Organizations, libraries, high schools and colleges take part.

Using a mix of found footage, live performance, still photos, and robotic cameras the ALTERNATE ENDINGS videos weave together connections between personal stories and public memories. They share tales of love and breakups, sing songs of defiance, celebrate action, and remember those whom we have lost. Through these diverse stories we are invited to reflect upon our complex past as we envision divergent narratives and possibilities for the future, because AIDS IS NOT OVER.

Visual AIDS initiates public actions and programs, publishes an annual poster and copyright-free broadsides, and acts as press coordinator and clearing house for projects for Day Without Art / World AIDS Day.

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Faculty and Graduate Student Colloquium

"Knocking on America’s (and Heaven’s) Door: Shlomo Carlebach’s Challenge in Shifting and Sifting American Jewish Identity"

With Moshe-David HaCohen, Inaugural Visiting Fellow in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive


Wednesday, December 3 @ 12PM

Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu for location and pre-circulated readings


This colloquium will provide a unique interdisciplinary environment for scholars to share and discuss research on modern American Jewish culture and identity. Moshe-David HaCohen will present his research on Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, demonstrating how this pivotal figure provides a prism to the challenges, changes and questions of self-identification that Post-Holocaust American Jewry faced in the second half of the twentieth century. The materials of the Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi Collection, housed in the CU Boulder Archives, will provide basis of comparison between Reb Zalman and Shlomo Carlebach and the similarities and differences of choices each figure made in their engagement and interaction with modern American society.


Moshe-David HaCohen is a Presidential Fellowship Doctoral Candidate at the Department of History of the University of Haifa in Israel. In his dissertation, Moshe-David applies interdisciplinary resources in order to explore the adaptation of Jewish tradition through the interaction of Shlomo Carlebach with the "counterculture" of the Sixties in the United States. He has taken part in international academic conferences and workshops on contemporary Jewish identity, religion and culture and has been honored as the inaugural Visiting Fellow in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive at the University of Colorado.


Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive Visiting Scholar Fellowship:

The University of Colorado’s Libraries and Archives along with the Program in Jewish Studies annually support a visiting scholar, whose research interests take advantage of the unique resources in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism archive. The Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive collects materials examining Judaism and the Jewish experience as a religious re-engagement, social movement, and philosophy of spiritual transformation in America from the late 1940s to the present.

Old Main

Speaker: Amanda Carrico, Assistant Professor, Environmental Studies Program, CU-Boulder

Agricultural Innovation in a Changing Climate

Stress on freshwater resources is one of the largest risks associated with climate change. The risk is even greater when consideration is given to increasing demand for resources as the developing world develops, and as the world’s population continues to grow. At the center of this issue are the world’s farmers, who are facing rapidly changing environmental, social and economic conditions that require adaptation. In this talk Professor Carrico will draw on research involving small-scale farmers in Sri Lanka to discuss a range of psychological, social, and institutional factors that impact agricultural innovation and adaptation.

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

AIA Lecture Series: Citizen-Soldiers in Classical Antiquity
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Citizen-soldiers provided the foundation for highly effective armies and broad political participation in ancient Greece and Rome. The rise of large numbers of free citizens able to arm themselves at their own expense created fertile ground for revolutionary developments and the establishment of democratic and republican institutions in the ancient Mediterranean world. This talk will begin with earlier political and military trends in Mesopotamia and Egypt and then proceed to discuss unique characteristics of Greece and Rome that contributed to mass participation in warfare and politics.

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Minerals on a planetary surface can be used to provide information about the history of processes that have shaped that body. The type and duration of alteration are important because they can provide information about ancient environments.

Decades of observation have shown that the early history of Mars was rich in geologic activity, including volcanic, aqueous, and aeolian processes. Remote observations have revealed much information about the compositional diversity of surface materials at a variety of spatial scales. Although the surface of Mars consists mainly of volcanic material, spectroscopic observations have indicated that volcanic processes were likely variable. Furthermore, identification of a variety of minerals indicative of aqueous processes suggests that water had played a role in shaping the volcanic surface.

This presentation will provide an overview of the current state of knowledge regarding the mineralogy and composition of the Martian surface through remote spectroscopic observations and what these observations infer about the past environments on Mars.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 
Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation (Multi-Day Event)

The gifted collection covers the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

Treml has worked extensively on Aby Warburg, as well as on Martin Buber and Jacob Taubes. 

Figures of Jewish Martyrdom From the Bible to Early Zionism:

It has always been a matter of dispute among historians of religion whether Judaism possesses a theological concept of the martyr. This talk will argue that one may speak of martyrdom in Judaism out of both methodological and historical reasons and will considering the following case studies: 1. The narrative of the agedat-jitzhaq, the “binding of Isaac,” 2. The figuration of the “noble death,” 3. The concept of “dying for God,” 4. Kiddush ha-shem, or “sanctification of (God’s) Name,” 5. The complete lack of martyrdom as a concept in Hasidism, and, finally, 6. Modern forms of Jewish martyrdom in connection with the program of the return to Eretz Yisrael.

CS Colloquium: Leysia Palen (CU-Boulder)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Frontiers in Crisis Informatics

ABSTRACT: Crisis informatics addresses socio-technical concerns in large-scale emergency response. Additionally it expands consideration to include not only official responders (who tend to be the focus in policy and technology-focused matters), but also members of the public. It therefore views emergency response as a much broader socio-technical system where information is disseminated within and between official and public channels and entities. Crisis informatics wrestles with methodological concerns as it strives to develop new theory and support informed development of ICT and policy. Palen will describe the range of work her team has engaged in at CU-Boulder since 2006, and highlight the different branches of crisis informatics research through discussion of the multidisciplinary research they have conducted here.

BIO: Leysia Palen is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, USA. She is a faculty fellow with the ATLAS Institute and the Institute of Cognitive Science. She is also a Full Adjunct Professor at the University of Agder in Norway. Leysia Palen is a graduate of the University of California, San Diego with a BS in Cognitive Science, and of the University of California, Irvine with an MS and PhD in Information and Computer Science. Prof. Palen is a leader in the area of crisis informatics, an area she forged with her graduate students and colleagues at CU-Boulder. She brings her training in human-computer interaction (HCI), computer-supported cooperative work and social computing to bear on understanding and advancing socio-technical issues of societal import. She conducts empirical research in the interpretivist tradition. However, in the advancing arena of large-scale on-line interaction (the "big data" of crisis response), she adapts quantitative techniques that then allow the application of qualitative methods and the "ethnographic eye" to closely observe and describe social structures in such technology-mediated situations. Prof. Palen is the author of over 70 articles and a co-edited book in the areas of human computer interaction, computer supported cooperative work, mobility, and crisis informatics. She was awarded an NSF CAREER in 2006. She is an Associate Editor for the Human Computer Interaction Journal (Taylor and Francis) and for the Computer-Supported Cooperative Work Journal (Springer).

Event Image A Broadway Christmas Carol
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Created by Kathy Feininger
Directed by Nathan Stith

If Charles Dickens had huddled with Rodgers and Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Matt Stone and Trey Parker to write a holiday show, they just might have come up with A Broadway Christmas Carol. Simultaneously irreverent and respectful, the play offers a fresh, hilarious and charmingly recognizable retelling of Dickens’ classic holiday ghost story, complete with new lyrics to famous Broadway show tunes.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 
Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The exhibit in the Norlin Library 3rd floor NW Triptych gallery (across from Special Collections), "Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation," highlights key transformations in the production of Tibetan texts—from woodblock prints to digital searchable text. The display includes woodblock carvings of The Treasury of Knowledge, which is among the texts generously gifted by the Tsadra Foundation to the CU-Boulder Libraries. The gifted collection covers the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
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.
ALTERNATE ENDINGS, presented in honor of World AIDS Day (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

CUAM presents the new project by Visual AIDS: ALTERNATE ENDINGS, a video program for the 25th anniversary of Day With(out) Art. The videos commissioned by Visual AIDS feature works about the ongoing HIV/AIDS pandemic. The videos highlight the diverse voices of seven artists that use video to bring together charged moments and memories from their personal perspective amidst the public history of HIV/AIDS.

 Artists featured: Rhys Ernst, Glen Fogel, Lyle Ashton Harris, Hi Tiger, Tom Kalin, My Barbarian, Julie Tolentino.

Day Without Art began on December 1st, 1989 as a national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. To make the public aware that AIDS can touch everyone, and inspire positive action, some 800 U.S. art and AIDS groups participated in the first Day Without Art, shutting down museums, sending staff to volunteer at AIDS services, or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS. Since then, Day With(out) Art has grown into a collaborative project in which an estimated 8,000 national and international museums, galleries, art centers, AIDS Service Organizations, libraries, high schools and colleges take part.

Using a mix of found footage, live performance, still photos, and robotic cameras the ALTERNATE ENDINGS videos weave together connections between personal stories and public memories. They share tales of love and breakups, sing songs of defiance, celebrate action, and remember those whom we have lost. Through these diverse stories we are invited to reflect upon our complex past as we envision divergent narratives and possibilities for the future, because AIDS IS NOT OVER.

Visual AIDS initiates public actions and programs, publishes an annual poster and copyright-free broadsides, and acts as press coordinator and clearing house for projects for Day Without Art / World AIDS Day.

Event Image "Figures of Jewish Martyrdom" and "Aby Warburg": Two Events with Dr. Martin Treml (Multi-Day Event)
End Time 12:00 PM

Lecture: "Figures of Jewish Martyrdom from the Bible to Early Zionism"
December 4 @ 2PM
McKenna 112

Seminar: "Aby Warburg's Kulturwissenschaft and the Afterlife of Images"
December 5 @ 10AM
Old Main 1B85
**Both events are free and open to the public. Space is limited.**

Dr. Martin Treml, director of research at the Zentrum für Kultur-und Literaturforschung in Berlin and currently at Stanford, will be visiting Boulder on December 4-5, 2014. His visit to CU is sponsored by the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures and co-sponsored by the Center for Humanities and the Arts, the Program in Jewish Studies, and the Department of Religious Studies.

Treml has worked extensively on Aby Warburg, as well as on Martin Buber and Jacob Taubes. 

Figures of Jewish Martyrdom From the Bible to Early Zionism:

It has always been a matter of dispute among historians of religion whether Judaism possesses a theological concept of the martyr. This talk will argue that one may speak of martyrdom in Judaism out of both methodological and historical reasons and will considering the following case studies: 1. The narrative of the agedat-jitzhaq, the “binding of Isaac,” 2. The figuration of the “noble death,” 3. The concept of “dying for God,” 4. Kiddush ha-shem, or “sanctification of (God’s) Name,” 5. The complete lack of martyrdom as a concept in Hasidism, and, finally, 6. Modern forms of Jewish martyrdom in connection with the program of the return to Eretz Yisrael.

Microbial Fuel Technologies for Renewable Power and Biofuels Production from Waste Biomass
Bruce E. Logan, Ph.D, NAE
Evan Pugh Professor, the Stan & Flora Kappe Professor of Environmental Engineering Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Penn State University, PA, USA

Friday, December 5, 2014
11:00 AM -12:00 PM (Lecture)
12:00-12:30 PM (Networking)
12:30 PM-1:50 PM (Lunch with faculty from other schools)

Engineering Center ECCR 1B40, CU Boulder

The seminar is being co-hosted by University of Colorado - Boulder, Colorado School of Mines, University of Colorado - Denver and Colorado State University.

Abstract: The ability of certain microorganisms to transfer electrons outside the cell has created opportunities for new methods of renewable energy generation based on microbial fuel cells (MFCs) that can be used to produce electrical power, microbial electrolysis cells (MECs) for transforming biologically generated electrical current into transportable fuels such as hydrogen and methane gases, as well as other devices to desalinate water or capture phosphorus. In this presentation, Dr. Logan will
summarize key findings in the electromicrobiological studies of the exoelectrogenic microorganisms and communities that produce electrical current, and the electrotrophic and methanogenic communities that are used to produce hydrogen and methane gases. Recent advances will be highlighted on materials and architectures that are being developed to make these different types of METs more cost efficient, which are leading to them becoming commercially viable technologies.

Professor Bruce E. Logan is an Evan Pugh Professor, the Stan & Flora Kappe Professor of Environmental Engineering, and Director of the Engineering Energy & Environmental Institute at Penn State University. His current research efforts are in bioenergy production and the development of an energy sustainable water infrastructure. Dr. Logan has mentored over 110 graduate students and post docs, and is the author or co-author of over 380 refereed publications (h-index = 91) and several books. He is the founding Deputy Editor of the new ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology Letters, and a member of the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE), and a fellow of AAAS, the International Water Association (IWA), the Water Environment Federation (WEF), and the Association of Environmental Engineering & Science Professors (AEESP). He received his Ph.D. in 1986 from the University of California, Berkeley.

Event Image CU Wizards: Chemistry of the Atmosphere
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

This show will demonstrate some of the fascinating chemistry of air and how its study helps us to understand how humans are affecting our Earth.

Air is something that most of us take for granted. We can feel the air in the wind or in our breath, but most of the time, it is simply just there for us. Most of the air - the part that is nitrogen or oxygen - sustains life on Earth, but does not do any chemistry. But at minute scales - parts per million or less - the chemistry of the atmosphere becomes very interesting. A thin layer of ozone high in the atmosphere protects us from harmful sunlight, but is vulnerable to things that people do at the Earth's surface. Down at the ground, tiny invisible particles suspended in air can change the color of the sky and can also be harmful to our health. And small amounts of greenhouse gases are slowly but steadily warming the Earth.

Event Image A Broadway Christmas Carol
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Created by Kathy Feininger
Directed by Nathan Stith

If Charles Dickens had huddled with Rodgers and Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Matt Stone and Trey Parker to write a holiday show, they just might have come up with A Broadway Christmas Carol. Simultaneously irreverent and respectful, the play offers a fresh, hilarious and charmingly recognizable retelling of Dickens’ classic holiday ghost story, complete with new lyrics to famous Broadway show tunes.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin.

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.

Environmental Metabolomics: Earth Science from a Different Point of
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

On Monday December 8th 2014 we will be having a special seminar. The speaker will be Dr. Elizabeth Kujawinski from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. The seminar will be at the DLC, 2-3 pm. 

Environmental Metabolomics: Earth Science from a Different Point of View
Dr. Elizabeth Kujawinski
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute

At the heart of environmental chemistry lies the analysis and quantification of chemicals in different settings. Recent advances in ionization techniques have opened the analytical window to polar organic compounds, or those that contain oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur or phosphorus. These compounds comprise a large fraction of soluble organic matter in aquatic environments and some play important roles in the functioning of microbial consortia and ecosystems. With appropriate instrumentation, it is now possible to rapidly detect and identify new compounds or to quantify known compounds of particular interest, within the complex background of soluble organic matter. These techniques, therefore, will be applicable to a wide range of environmental questions, ranging from large-scale concerns such as pollution to the microscale interactions of a microbial consortium. Here, I will explore the application of qualitative and quantitative mass spectrometry to questions in earth and environmental science, such as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, dissolved organic matter in the Pacific Ocean and/or the metabolites within a diatom cell. In all these cases, we strive to characterize the broadest array of polar compounds and to quantify those that will provide insights into important processes affecting biogeochemical cycles in aquatic systems.

Talk title: Order and Disorder in the Emotional Brain

Emotions are at the core of human personality, they define each person’s uniqueness and they shape resilience and vulnerability to adversity.  Perhaps the single most salient characteristic of emotion is the variability across individuals in how each responds to emotional cues and challenges.  This variability is termed “affective style.”  Different parameters of affective style can be objectively measured and are instantiated in different underlying neural circuits.  Activation patterns assessed with neuroimaging are related to different parameters of affective style and are consistent over time within individuals.  Specific patterns of brain activity are related to vulnerability to particular types of disorders.  Moreover, patterns of central brain function are related to peripheral biological systems that play a role in physical health and illness.  Despite their consistency over time within individuals, these patterns of neural activity are not immutable to change but rather can be transformed through systematic mental training such as meditation.  The literature on neuroplasticity provides a framework for understanding these changes.  This latter body of evidence supports the view that happiness, well-being and emotional balance are best regarded as the product of trainable skills.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin.

The gifted collection covers the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
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.

Interest and learning go hand in hand. When children and adolescents are deeply interested in a topic, they actively seek out ways to learn more about it. In turn, their growing knowledge helps deepen their interest. CU-Boulder School of Education Professor Bill Penuel will describe what research reveals about how children’s interests develop in and out of school and the role that social supports play in helping young people find activities that captivate and sustain their attention over time. Penuel will discuss ways that parents, teachers and the community can support the cycle in which interest and understanding can grow together, with emphasis on the middle grades and adolescence—when interest in many school subjects tends to decline.

CS Colloquium: Jed Brown (CU-Boulder)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Exploiting Structure in Scientific Computing

ABSTRACT: As scientists and engineers attempt to solve larger problems on evolving hardware, it is increasingly important to use optimal algorithms. "Black-box" methods suffer from poor scalability and poor efficiency on modern hardware. Building efficient solvers relies increasingly on pairing problem-specific structure with architectural capability and expressing the resulting algorithms via reusable software. Library design is the inverse problem: create maximally-reusable components to satisfy a diverse range of present and future customers and architectures.  This talk will survey several classes of problem structure, techniques for combining structure, deployment via the solver library PETSc, and examples of application impact.

BIO: Jed Brown grew up in Alaska, earning BS degrees in Mathematics and Physics and an MS in Mathematics at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, during which he was the principle author of the Parallel Ice Sheet Model (PISM).  In 2011, he completed a DrSc at ETH Zürich, where he investigated computational methods for ice sheet and glacier dynamics.  He became an active PETSc developer during this time, leading to a postdoc at Argonne National Lab.  He is now assistant computational mathematician at Argonne and assistant professor adjoint at the University of Colorado Boulder. His work has been recognized by the 2014 SIAG/SC Junior Scientist Prize and a 2014 IEEE TCSC Young Achiever Award, and as co-recipient of the 2015 SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science and Engineering.
Event Image Stefansson Memorial Lecture - "Abrupt Change: Past, Present and Future" by James White
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Climate, along with many parts of our environment, are changing as humans put more and more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. With CO2 levels today around 400 ppm and rising, levels which last occurred during much warmer times millions of years ago, it is clear that we are committed to even more climate change in the future, not only in our lifetimes, but well beyond our children’s and grandchildren's lifetimes as well. A key question is how changes will occur. Abrupt climate changes are those that exceed our expectations, preparedness, and ability to adapt. Such changes challenge us economically, physically, and socially. This talk will draw upon results from ice core research over the past twenty years, as well as a new NRC report on abrupt climate change in order to address abrupt change, as seen in the past in ice cores, as seen today in key environmental systems upon which humans depend, and what may be coming in the future. The annual Stefansson Memorial Lecture is held under the auspices of the Stefansson Arctic Institute in Akureyri, Iceland and the Institute of Arctic Studies at the Dickey Center for International Understanding, Dartmouth College. The lecture is named for arctic explorer and anthropologist Vilhjalmur Stefansson (1879-1962). Previous distinguished lecturers have included Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, President of Iceland, the former Governor General of Canada, Adrienne Clarkson, and New York Times journalist Andrew Revkin.

University of Colorado Boulder
Featuring Bradley J. Birzer, Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy

From 1931 to 1949, a group of Oxford scholars and allied friends, met regularly on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Out of these meetings—always rather brutal in terms of dealing with one another politically as well as intellectually—emerged some of the most interesting works of the twentieth century, including many of C.S. Lewis’s space trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.  The Inklings have much to teach us about art—not as an individual enterprise, but as one that springs from friendship and community.  Less famous, but equally important, Inklings included Lord David Cecil, Owen Barfield, and Charles Williams.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

Event Image 24-Hour Study Areas in Norlin and Eaton during Finals Week (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The CU-Boulder College of Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce that the Eaton Humanities building will be open 24 hours a day during finals week for students with an active BuffOne card, providing an additional all-night study location on campus.

Students are welcome to use empty classrooms and other study areas in the building (except that the large auditoriums will not be available). Eaton Humanities provides easy access to Norlin Library, which also provides during finals week a 24-hour study area in the Commons, including the Laughing Goat Coffee Shop (east side off Sundial Plaza). The rest of the Norlin Library will remain open until 2 a.m. during finals week.

 

The 411:

- The Eaton Humanities building and the Norlin Commons will be open 24 hours Friday, Dec. 12 through 7 a.m. Thursday, Dec.18.

- You will need to show your active BuffOne card at the south door to gain access to Eaton Humanities during the extended hours.

- A CU Police Department security guard will walk through Eaton from 9 p.m. until 7 a.m. during this period, and security is also maintained in the Norlin main building and Commons area.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin.

Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The exhibit in the Norlin Library 3rd floor NW Triptych gallery (across from Special Collections), "Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation," highlights key transformations in the production of Tibetan texts—from woodblock prints to digital searchable text. The display includes woodblock carvings of The Treasury of Knowledge, which is among the texts generously gifted by the Tsadra Foundation to the CU-Boulder Libraries. The gifted collection covers the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
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:  From Visual Prototypes of Action to Metaphors: The Imagact Visual Ontology and Its Extension to Figurative Meanings

ABSTRACT:  Action verbs are some of the most polysemous words, with one form often covering a wide range of physical actions, as well as extending to various figurative meanings. The range of variations within and across languages can cause trouble for second language learners and natural language processing tasks. IMAGACT is a corpus-based ontology of action concepts that makes use of the universal language of images to identify the different physical action types expressed by verbs in English, Italian, Chinese and Spanish.  IMAGACT makes explicit the variation of meaning of action verbs within one language and allows comparisons of verb variations within and across languages. Because the action concepts are represented with videos, extension into new languages is easily done using competence-based judgments by native-language informants.

In the first half of this talk, I will describe the resource's rationale and infrastructure and demonstrate the types of linguistic information a user can derive from it. In the second half, I will describe the extension of this resource to figurative meanings. We first established three main categories of secondary meaning variation--metaphor, metonymy and idiom--and criteria for creating types within these categories for each verb. The criteria rely heavily on the images that compose the IMAGACT ontology of action and on widely accepted processes of meaning extension in linguistics. Although figurative language is known for its amorphous, subjective nature, we have endeavored to create a standard, justifiable process for determining figurative language types for individual verbs. We specifically highlight the benefits that IMAGACT’s representation of the primary meanings through videos brings to the understanding and annotation of secondary meanings.

Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

Event Image 24-Hour Study Areas in Norlin and Eaton during Finals Week (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The CU-Boulder College of Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce that the Eaton Humanities building will be open 24 hours a day during finals week for students with an active BuffOne card, providing an additional all-night study location on campus.

Students are welcome to use empty classrooms and other study areas in the building (except that the large auditoriums will not be available). Eaton Humanities provides easy access to Norlin Library, which also provides during finals week a 24-hour study area in the Commons, including the Laughing Goat Coffee Shop (east side off Sundial Plaza). The rest of the Norlin Library will remain open until 2 a.m. during finals week.

 

The 411:

- The Eaton Humanities building and the Norlin Commons will be open 24 hours Friday, Dec. 12 through 7 a.m. Thursday, Dec.18.

- You will need to show your active BuffOne card at the south door to gain access to Eaton Humanities during the extended hours.

- A CU Police Department security guard will walk through Eaton from 9 p.m. until 7 a.m. during this period, and security is also maintained in the Norlin main building and Commons area.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 
Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The exhibit in the Norlin Library 3rd floor NW Triptych gallery (across from Special Collections), "Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation," highlights key transformations in the production of Tibetan texts—from woodblock prints to digital searchable text. The display includes woodblock carvings of The Treasury of Knowledge, which is among the texts generously gifted by the Tsadra Foundation to the CU-Boulder Libraries. The gifted collection covers the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
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.

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.

If Charles Dickens had huddled with Rodgers and Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Matt Stone and Trey Parker to write a holiday show, they just might have come up with A Broadway Christmas Carol. Simultaneously irreverent and respectful, the play offers a fresh, hilarious and charmingly recognizable retelling of Dickens’ classic holiday ghost story, complete with new lyrics to famous Broadway show tunes.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin.

Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin.

Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The exhibit in the Norlin Library 3rd floor NW Triptych gallery (across from Special Collections), "Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation," highlights key transformations in the production of Tibetan texts—from woodblock prints to digital searchable text. The display includes woodblock carvings of The Treasury of Knowledge, which is among the texts generously gifted by the Tsadra Foundation to the CU-Boulder Libraries. The gifted collection covers the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
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.

A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin.

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.
