Event Image Through Soviet Jewish Eyes Goes to New York


Professor David Shneer, Director of Jewish Studies, Louis P. Singer Endowed Chair in Jewish History, and Professor in History and Lisa Tamiris Becker, Director of the CU Art Museum will be attending the opening of the CU curated exhibition Through Soviet Jewish Eyes: Photography, War, and the Holocaust at the New York Museum of Jewish Heritage.

Through Soviet Jewish Eyes: Photography, War, and the Holocaust
Edmond J. Safra Plaza
36 Battery Place
Battery Place City
New York City, NY 10280


Although World War II is one of the most documented conflicts of the 20th century, western audiences know very little about the Soviet Jewish photojournalists who captured some of the most riveting and powerful images of the war. Such photographers as Evgenii Khaldei, Georgii Zelma, and Dmitrii Baltermants merged documentary phography with avant-garde modernist sensibilities to create works that have had a profound influence on 20th century art and beyond.

The critically acclaimed exhibition will run from November 16, 2012 - April 7, 2013.
Event Image Beetles: Exploring the diversity, beauty & behavior of beetles
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Beetles are one of the most successful organisms on the planet. Representing 40 percent of all insects and having existed for millions of years, they make up 25 percent of all known species.

Immerse yourself in "Beetles" and explore their diversity, beauty and behavior. Highlighting hundreds upon hundreds of beetles the exhibition includes: the dung beetle, famous for recycling animal feces, and in fact, one species is successful in removing 80 percent of all cattle droppings in parts of Texas; Hercules beetles, as part of the rhinoceros beetle subfamily, is capable of supporting 850 times its weight making it the strongest animal on earth; and the well known and beautiful ladybug is considered an omen of good luck!

The exhibition includes a special display of beetle artwork created by local artist and author Steve Jenkins.

The University of Colorado Museum of Natural History is closed on all University holidays.
Event Image A Broadway Christmas Carol, a musical
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

“A little song, a little dance, a little eggnog down your pants…”

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.

But their efforts couldn’t have been any funnier than the hit musical created by Kathy Feininger, which will be performed in the University Theatre Dec. 7-23 in its regional premiere.

The show is just what the title suggests: Dickens’ holiday classic performed through beloved show tunes. Here’s a hint: a doddering Ghost of Christmas Past warbling “Try to Remember” from The Fantasticks, Tiny Tim wearing an Annie fright wig and even references to modern classics such as Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon.

Full of “infectiously giddy moments” (Washington Post), A Broadway Christmas Carol charmingly balances hilarious parody with the warmth and humanity of the world’s best-known holiday tale. Fresh, funny, and charmingly recognizable, it’s a perfect holiday treat for you and your family.
Event Image Holiday Festival
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

A lively program of beloved seasonal music and festive holiday decorations in Macky Auditorium inspire sold out audiences to make the Holiday Festival a favorite annual tradition. The College of Music’s choirs, orchestra, ensembles, and faculty soloists invite you to share this joyous celebration of the season with your family and friends.

The Prayer Closet is open on Tuesdays from 12-1PM in the UMC in Room 329. The name comes from a verse in the Gospel according to Matthew: "But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you" (6:6).  Pastor Roger and a student host are available to pray with you, for you, and/or simply leave the room and give you space to connect to God in your own way.  

Note: this ministry is sponsored by a progressive Christian campus ministry, Wesley Fellowship, but we won't be using this time to push Christianity or our ministry onto you. Promise.  Learn more about us if you like: http://www.wesleyf.org/ or https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wesley-FoundationChapel-at-CU-Boulder/81518477533?fref=ts, 'cuz prayer is good.

CEB Presents: Jose Antonio Vargas
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The Cultural Events Board would like to cordially invite you to an event with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, founder of Define American.com and undocumented immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas, on Tuesday December 11th at 7pm in the Glenn Miller Ballroom. 

Tickets are free for students, staff, faculty, and community members, and will be available on a first come first serve basis at the event.

A journalist for over a decade writing for some of the most prestigious news organizations in the country, Vargas’ personal journey contends with some of the most fascinating stories he’s covered, living a double life since he was 16 years old. After being born and reared in the Philippines, his mother, wanting to give her son a better life, sent him to live with his grandparents in Silicon Valley in 1993. However, at 16 years old when applying for his Learner’s permit at the DMV, he discovered his green card was a fake. Vargas then realized he needed to continue hiding his true identity to avoid deportation and be able to pursue his American dream – a career in journalism.

Despite all his achievements, the dark shadow of Vargas’ true identity continued to haunt him, as he frequently lied to friends and colleagues, avoided close relationships so no one would ask too many questions, and didn’t travel abroad due to his illegal passport. Finally in the summer of 2011, 18 years after arriving in America he decided he was done running. Vargas exposed his story in his groundbreaking essay, “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant,” for the New York Times Magazine, stunning the media and political circles and attracting world-wide coverage. Today Vargas runs Define American, a non-profit organization that seeks to elevate the conversation around immigration.

Event Image Through Soviet Jewish Eyes Goes to New York


Professor David Shneer, Director of Jewish Studies, Louis P. Singer Endowed Chair in Jewish History, and Professor in History and Lisa Tamiris Becker, Director of the CU Art Museum will be attending the opening of the CU curated exhibition Through Soviet Jewish Eyes: Photography, War, and the Holocaust at the New York Museum of Jewish Heritage.

Edmond J. Safra Plaza
36 Battery Place
Battery Place City
New York City, NY 10280


Although World War II is one of the most documented conflicts of the 20th century, western audiences know very little about the Soviet Jewish photojournalists who captured some of the most riveting and powerful images of the war. Such photographers as Evgenii Khaldei, Georgii Zelma, and Dmitrii Baltermants merged documentary phography with avant-garde modernist sensibilities to create works that have had a profound influence on 20th century art and beyond.

The critically acclaimed exhibition will run from November 16, 2012 - April 7, 2013.

Event Image A Broadway Christmas Carol, a musical
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

“A little song, a little dance, a little eggnog down your pants…”

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.

But their efforts couldn’t have been any funnier than the hit musical created by Kathy Feininger, which will be performed in the University Theatre Dec. 7-23 in its regional premiere.

The show is just what the title suggests: Dickens’ holiday classic performed through beloved show tunes. Here’s a hint: a doddering Ghost of Christmas Past warbling “Try to Remember” from The Fantasticks, Tiny Tim wearing an Annie fright wig and even references to modern classics such as Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon.

Full of “infectiously giddy moments” (Washington Post), A Broadway Christmas Carol charmingly balances hilarious parody with the warmth and humanity of the world’s best-known holiday tale. Fresh, funny, and charmingly recognizable, it’s a perfect holiday treat for you and your family.

Biomedical Informatics and AI: Knowledge Base Construction and Natural Language Processing

Kevin Livingston
University of Colorado
School of Medicine
Computational Bioscience

ECCR 265
Thursday, December 13
3:30-4:30 PM

Biomedical researchers face a profound challenge in keeping track and making sense of numerous databases, a growing body of literature, clinical data and records, and data from high-throughput experiments. In this talk I will outline how this is an excellent application domain for AI.

I will present data motivating the need for semantic integration of diverse sources of biomedical information, and then talk about my research on KaBOB, a knowledge base for integrating curated biomedical databases using community-developed ontologies. KaBOB is currently populated with 19 curated databases and 12 ontologies comprising 8 billion RDF triples. Discussion will include the current status of KaBOB, challenges in building such a large system, and future directions. 

The role of background knowledge, such as the contents of KaBOB, in semantically oriented natural language processing in the biomedical domain will also be discussed. My research demonstrates how background knowledge can be leveraged early in processing (in contrast to the standard pipeline model) to facilitate the understanding of text. Finally a trajectory of NLP research will be outlined establishing a positive feedback loop between knowledge bases and text mining that drives toward a future of more integrated biomedical knowledge.

Kevin Livingston is currently a postdoc in the Computational Bioscience Program at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. His research revolves around building intelligent systems that can leverage the large quantities of structured and unstructured data available in the biomedical domain. Current research includes the production of KaBOB, a knowledge base designed to unify curated databases with community consensus ontologies to produce a platform for next-generation intelligent tools for biomedical analysis. This includes tools specifically designed for the bench-scientist as well as text-mining systems for extracting more information from biomedical journal articles or other text-based clinical data.

Dr. Livingston earned his Ph.D. from the Northwestern University Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department. His dissertation was in the domain of Natural Language Understanding, specifically leveraging large background knowledge bases to facilitate machine reading. His M.S. work, also at Northwestern, focused on Information Retrieval (IR), most notably work combining structured and unstructured information to retrieve documents. Dr. Livingston has worked in industries of various shapes and sizes, and is an active contributor to open-source software.

Event Image A Broadway Christmas Carol, a musical
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

“A little song, a little dance, a little eggnog down your pants…”

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.

But their efforts couldn’t have been any funnier than the hit musical created by Kathy Feininger, which will be performed in the University Theatre Dec. 7-23 in its regional premiere.

The show is just what the title suggests: Dickens’ holiday classic performed through beloved show tunes. Here’s a hint: a doddering Ghost of Christmas Past warbling “Try to Remember” from The Fantasticks, Tiny Tim wearing an Annie fright wig and even references to modern classics such as Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon.

Full of “infectiously giddy moments” (Washington Post), A Broadway Christmas Carol charmingly balances hilarious parody with the warmth and humanity of the world’s best-known holiday tale. Fresh, funny, and charmingly recognizable, it’s a perfect holiday treat for you and your family.

Event Image Through Soviet Jewish Eyes Goes to New York


Professor David Shneer, Director of Jewish Studies, Louis P. Singer Endowed Chair in Jewish History, and Professor in History and Lisa Tamiris Becker, Director of the CU Art Museum will be attending the opening of the CU curated exhibition Through Soviet Jewish Eyes: Photography, War, and the Holocaust at the New York Museum of Jewish Heritage.

Through Soviet Jewish Eyes: Photography, War, and the Holocaust
Edmond J. Safra Plaza
36 Battery Place
Battery Place City
New York City, NY 10280


Although World War II is one of the most documented conflicts of the 20th century, western audiences know very little about the Soviet Jewish photojournalists who captured some of the most riveting and powerful images of the war. Such photographers as Evgenii Khaldei, Georgii Zelma, and Dmitrii Baltermants merged documentary phography with avant-garde modernist sensibilities to create works that have had a profound influence on 20th century art and beyond.

The critically acclaimed exhibition will run from November 16, 2012 - April 7, 2013.
