Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Teach Like You Write: The Lecture as a Good Argument
Melanie Shaffer, GTP Lead, Music

A recent Op-Ed in the New York Times defended the traditional lecture format for humanities classes, saying that a lecture “is not a recitation of facts, but the building of an argument.” This workshop will explore how to use the skills we’ve developed as academic writers to prepare more thoughtfully crafted lectures that guide our students to detect, follow, and critique arguments—a skill we often require of them in their assignments!

First ICE Talk of the Semester

Explore environmental careers with professionals who share their experiences in a low key setting.

This Week's Guest: Amanda Carrico, Environmental Studies Program, University of Colorado-Boulder 

Dr. Amanda Carrico is an environmental social scientist with interests in the human dimensions of environmental conservation and adaptation to environmental change. Amanda joined the ENVS faculty in the spring of 2014.  Her work draws on the fields of psychology (her home discipline), sociology, demography, and economics to examine human-environment interactions.  Amanda’s work falls into two primary research areas:  The first is to understand the factors that motivate pro-environmental behavior among individuals and households, and how these insights can be can used to improve environmental programs and policy.  The second examines adaptive responses to environmental change among households and communities engaged in agricultural livelihoods.

Amanda’s current research focuses on adaptations in agricultural practices among smallholding farmers in Sri Lanka in response to water scarcity.  She is also working in Bangladesh seeking to understand the role of internal and international migration as a response to environmental stress in southwest Bangladesh. 

When:          Tuesday, February 2
Time:           5:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Where:         Humanities 1B80

This forum is an excellent opportunity (especially for graduate students) to gain valuable feedback on concepts, methods, statistical analyses, and many other aspects of their work. Brown bag has an informal atmosphere that fosters dynamic discussions and friendly conversation.
Climate Change from the Audience’s Perspective
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Climate Change from the Audience’s Perspective by Ines Lörcher Institute for Journalism and Communication, University of Hamburg Center for Science & Technology Policy Research Conference Room 1333 Grandview Avenue Climate change is considered as one of the biggest problems humanity is facing today. At the same time, it is an abstract and complex phenomenon and the findings of climate science are often temporary and uncertain. The communication of this scientific issue to the public is therefore a challenge – especially for the mass media as one of the most important mediators. Climate change is ever-present in the media and in the last years, news coverage of the issue has increased all over the world. A research project at the University of Hamburg in Germany investigated for 6 years the overall question in which way media influence the public knowledge about and attitudes towards climate change. Here, the definition of media was very broad as also the meaning of fictional content and online communication was analyzed. In her talk, Ines Lörcher as one of the members of the research team will present results of their various multi-method studies within the project: surveys, qualitative interviews and a broad quantitative online content analysis via manual and automated coding methods of journalistic articles and their reader comments, scientific expert blogs, discussion forums and social media.

The kind of company that’s been setting the bar for the way people pay and get paid for more than 50 years, and continues to innovate on a global scale. Now imagine that company has fewer than 10,000 employees worldwide, small enough that you’ll actually have an impact and do some amazing things. Sounds pretty awesome. Well, that company exists and it’s Visa.


Yep, Visa.


Imagine, in a single day, the diversity of transactions that Visa manages – from gaming enthusiasts who buy virtual goods to advance a level, to a small business merchant launching their first e-commerce business, to a large consumer brand hitting their largest single-day sale. Now multiply transactions and interactions like that by millions on a global scale – that's Visa.

But what is all this hype about the polar vortex and why didn’t I hear about it as a kid? Has this atmospheric phenomenon emerged as a result of climate change or in response to Al Gore’s movie The Day After Tomorrow? Will it rip the roof off my house like a giant tornado? In this talk I will present a history of the polar vortex, and summarize how the polar vortex is expected to change with warmer climate.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Complex/Dynamical Systems Seminar - Paul Krause
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Paul Krause, Climate and Global Dynamics Laboratory, University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR)

Influence sampling, strong predictability and analysis of non-observable trailing variables

A novel sampling scheme for the state of an evolutive system of ordinary di fferential equations (o.d.e.), the Influence Sampling (IS) scheme, is presented for systems with local determining variables.  The concept of local determining variables is an extension of the concept of determining variables on the attractor.  The IS is a discrete control scheme for trailing variables of an evolutive system of o.d.e..  It adapts sample values of the trailing variables to discrete control values of the local determining. In predictability tests conducted on solutions of the L63 (Lorenz, 1963), the IS scheme is found to increase the period of strong predictability of the L63 system and the accuracy and confi dence of the estimate in this period. In recovery tests conducted on solutions of the moist-convective rotating shallow water (mcRSW) system of equations and a 3D climate model, the IS scheme is found to recover the mcRSW's layer thickness and humidity and the climate model's convection and humidity with great accuracy when the mcRSW wind is provided every 12 hours and the climate wind, temperature and density
are provided every 8 hours.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Building and Managing Team-Based Course Projects
Eben Johnson, Engineering Management

Employers within technical industries are increasingly calling for students to be better trained in how to be productive and appreciated members of their teams. And, we are responding well by increasing the number of team-based projects in our courses. Yet, such team-based projects don’t necessarily teach students how to be better teammates, and, unfortunately, some teams don’t do well. Based on my own experiences plus industry and student feedback, this workshop will offer attendees a set of tips and tricks to help better build, manage, and enjoy team-based course projects.

Slepian Sequences and Subspace Models for Signal Processing
Low-dimensional subspace models offer a convenient representation for many high-dimensional signals; such models form
the backbone of least-squares signal processing and many common compression techniques. However, reconciling these
subspace models with another fundamental signal processing tool--frequency analysis--can be difficult. For example, the popular
discrete Fourier transform (DFT) will badly spread out the energy of even a simple sinusoid if its frequency does not fall on
a regular grid. In this talk, we describe an alternative framework for developing subspace models based on a classical tool from
time-frequency analysis: the Discrete Prolate Spheroidal Sequences, also known as the Slepian sequences. We review some
basic--but remarkable--properties of Slepian sequences, discuss their effectiveness in building subspace models, present new
results concerning an efficient dictionary constructed by concatenating Slepian sequences from multiple frequency bands,
and discuss applications of these dictionaries in compressive sensing, radar imaging, and super-resolution.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Nonlinear Waves Seminar - Xudan Luo
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Xudan Luo, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

The inverse scattering transform for the nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equation with nonzero boundary conditions.

The nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation was introduced and shown to be integrable. In this talk, the inverse scattering transform for the nonlocal NLS equation with nonzero boundary conditions at infinity is presented. The direct and inverse scattering problems are analyzed. Specifically, the direct problem is shown to be well posed for certain potentials such that analyticity properties of eigenfunctions and scattering data are established. The inverse scattering problem is developed via a left-right Riemann-Hilbert problem in terms of a uniform variable. Finally, the Cauchy problem for nonlocal NLS equation with nonzero boundary conditions is formulated and the methods to find pure soliton solutions are discussed, which, in tun, leads to an explicit 1-soliton solution.

Project Based-Learning: What Is It? What Matters?
Daria Kotys-Schwartz, Director, Idea Forge; Instructor, Mechanical Engineering

Research has shown that Project-Based Learning (PBL) has several benefits in STEM classrooms. Due to the broad variety of practices classified as PBL, results can be wide-ranging and confusion can easily occur when reviewing the literature. This workshop will introduce the difference between PBL and an “add-on project” in a course. We will discuss relevant PBL research, the critical components for supporting PBL, and the potential outcomes.

 

Event Image Playing the Long Game: Creating Shared Prosperity through Conscious Capitalism, A Conversation with
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

In order to create shared prosperity and an economy that works for everyone, employers must reject the false choice between treating their workers with dignity and turning a profit. Employers must recognize, as President Obama said in his final State of the Union address, "that doing right by their workers or their customers or their communities ends up being good for their shareholders."

In his talk, the US Labor Secretary Tom Perez will argue that the high road is the smart road, and that building great companies requires valuing employees. Afterwards, in a conversation with Secretary Perez and Colorado Law Dean Phil Weiser, two leaders of great Colorado companies committed to these values, will join in a facilitated conversation on the topic.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Hydrology & Water Resources Seminar
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This week's session will feature Prof. Hari Rajaram, who will be speaking on "Quantifying the Influence of Heterogeneity and Preferential Flow on the Scale and Time Dependence of Weathering Rates"

ABSTRACT: Numerous previous laboratory and field observations and inferences of weathering rates suggest significant scale dependence (laboratory rates » field rates) and time dependence (rates appear to decrease progressively with time of exposure). Preferential flow induced by heterogeneity, manifest as permeability variations, macropores, or discrete fractures, has been suggested as one class of extrinsic mechanisms responsible for the observed scale and time dependence. Additional intrinsic mechanisms proposed include the decrease in reactive surface area with weathering. In this research, we present a quantitative evaluation of the influence of heterogeneity and preferential flow on weathering rates using high-resolution reactive transport modeling. We employ PFLOTRAN, an open source subsurface flow and reactive transport code that utilizes parallelization over multiple processors and provides a robust framework for simulating the complex weathering patterns resulting from preferential flow. Simulations were performed in discrete fracture networks (DFNs) and correlated random permeability fields (CRPF). The behavior in these simulations was compared to that in homogeneous permeability fields. The simulations reproduce to some extent the scale and time dependence of weathering rates, although the modeled scale and time dependence are less pronounced than indicated by observations. The simulations in DFNs indicated a systematic time-dependence related to the formation of diffusion-controlled weathering fronts that propagate into matrix blocks. However, the decline of system-averaged weathering rates does not follow a 1/sqrt(time) dependence characteristic of diffusion, due to network scale effects and depletion of matrix blocks. The behavior in CRPF was akin to that in homogeneous permeability fields with enhanced dispersion, with a time-dependence that reflects the advective sweeping of the weathering front from the simulation domain. Our results suggest that structured preferential flow, as resulting from DFNs can readily explain an order-of-magnitude disparity between laboratory and field rates, and a similar decrease with time over 1 million years. However, to explain the nearly four orders of magnitude decrease indicated by observations, preferential flow and diffusion limitations must act in consort with other intrinsic mechanisms.

Event Image CIRTL Reads 2015-2016
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

February 9, 2016: How People Learn

Discussion: This article describes an experiment in which students participated in a Human Metabolism Laboratory module in one of two ways: 1) a control group where students participated in a “cookbook”-style lab, following the instructor’s lead through a predetermined set of steps; or, 2) a treatment group in which students participated via the “How People Learn” framework, which encourages active participation through discussion and application of knowledge. We will discuss the results of the study, as well as the pedagogy underlying the “How People Learn” framework and the benefits of learner-centered approaches vs. more traditional styles of teaching laboratory modules.

March 8, 2016: Laboratory Pedagogies and Collaborative Learning

Discussion: In the spirit of this month’s CIRTLCast theme, “Creating Inclusive STEM Research Environments,” we’re looking at two short articles covering laboratory pedagogies and collaborative learning. The first article by Weaver et al (2008) discusses the state of laboratory pedagogy and the effects of inquiry- and research-based laboratory pedagogies in preparing undergraduates for future careers. Our second article by Nokes-Malach et al (2015) is an educational review of the instances where collaboration improves learning outcomes. Collaborative learning strategies between students are widely viewed as beneficial, but the interactions between students are complex, and what works for one student may not work for all. Join us for discussion as we unpack these ideas and apply them to creating inclusive environments!
 

April 12, 2016: Visuals in STEM Teaching and Learning
2PM ET/1PM CT/12PM MT/11AM PT

Discussion: For the last session of the 2015-2016 CIRTL Reads, we are looking at the results of a qualitative pilot study of how STEM scholars learned to represent their research with graphics and how they currently communicate their research with graphics. While graphics communicate and support critical research arguments, the current study shows that the ways researchers learned to graphically communicate does not necessarily translate to what they do. These types of mismatches can interfere with proper communication, particularly among nonspecialist or student audiences.


CIRTL Reads is a monthly online journal club co-hosted by the University of Colorado Boulder that expands Network participants’ understanding of STEM teaching and learning by discussing recent articles in pedagogy and current trends within STEM. Readings will be posted on the series' Moodle page, and participants are asked to submit discussion questions to the CIRTL Reads discussion leader, Dr. Adam Blanford (gtptiger AT colorado.edu), at least 24 hours before the scheduled session.

When are sessions, and how do you join them? Sessions are 3:00-4:00PM ET/2:00-3:00PM CT/1:00-2:00PM MT/12:00-1:00PM PT on the second Wednesday of every month from September through April. Ahead of each session, you'll need to go to Moodle to read the month's article; to access the 2015-2016 CIRTL Reads Moodle page, please submit a request formOn the day of a session, we'll update our event page with a link to the session's Blackboard Collaborate room. Simply find the session in the event calendar and click "Join this session." If you're new to Blackboard Collaborate, make sure you review our Blackboard instruction page to familiarize yourself with the software ahead of time.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

The effects of Ekman pumping on rotating Rayleigh-Bénard convection

Rotating Rayleigh-Bénard convection is the canonical framework for investigating the fundamental dynamics of stars, planetary interiors, and terrestrial oceans.  To understand these turbulent and rapidly rotating systems, several techniques are used to study them: asymptotic methods, direct numerical simulations of the Boussinesq equations (DNS) and experiments.  While these methods show good quantitative agreement for stress free boundary conditions, the case of no-slip boundaries presents an interesting difference. Along the rigid boundaries, Ekman layers form which result in Ekman pumping. In this talk, I will present an asymptotically reduced PDE model for rotating, thermal convection that incorporates these Ekman layers and compare results from our simulations to those from DNS and experiments. The model is used to investigate the heat transport efficiency as well as the inverse cascade of energy in the geostrophic turbulence regime.

Practical, Lightweight Formal Analysis of Mobile Software

ABSTRACT: The ever-increasing expansion of software into nearly every aspect of modern life, from mobile banking to healthcare systems, is making its security and reliability more important than ever. Software analysis techniques hold out the promise of improved software quality. In this talk, Bagheri will present his ongoing research, which explores the possibility of leveraging lightweight formal methods that rely on recent advancements in constraint solving technologies for practical software analysis. First, in the context of Android – the most popular platform for mobile devices – he will present a novel approach for automated detection and mitigation of security vulnerabilities due to the interaction of multiple apps on an Android device. His study of thousands of real-world Android apps revealed hundreds of vulnerabilities, many of which were previously unknown. Second, in spite of their strengths, the lightweight formal methods’ reliance on computationally heavy constraint solvers means that they can take a significant amount of time to verify the properties of software. This complexity prevents their application for continuous assessment of a software system’s properties, such as security, at runtime. Bagheri will describe an all-new mechanism that achieves exceptionally efficient formal analysis in settings where the analysis is applied continuously on an evolving specification. His experimental results using evolving configurations of apps on an Android device show that the approach can provide an order of magnitude speedup over prior security analysis techniques, without sacrificing soundness and completeness of the analysis.

BIO: Hamid Bagheri is a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Information and Computer Sciences at University of California, Irvine. He received his PhD in computer science from the University of Virginia in 2013. Hamid is broadly interested in software engineering, and particularly in advancing software security and reliability by developing new methods and tools relying on concepts from fields like formal methods, program analysis, model-driven development, and software architecture. He has been prolific in his early career, developing several novel techniques, including new methods and tools for compositional analysis of Android inter-app vulnerabilities, synthesis of application‐specific frameworks, and synthesis of tradeoff spaces for object-relational databases. The results of his research have been published in some of the most prestigious venues, such as ICSE, IEEE TSE, FM and MoDELS, among others. He has been a finalist at the ACM student research competition. His publications in FM and SEKE Conferences have been recognized as best papers. Hamid has served on the program committee of several major conferences, and reviewed for multiple journals.

John Driscoll, author of “The Sales Warrior Within,” describes self-starting as a tough habit to start and a great habit to enjoy. As graduate students, we are expected to be selfstarters and leaders in our field of work. Becoming a self-starter mainly requires two things: reading and starting the day a little earlier than the others. This workshop provides certain steps to help you be a self-starter who initiates things rather than waiting for someone else to do it.

 

Event Image (Un)moved: The Paradoxes of Disaffection among Undocumented Queer Immigrants
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Featuring Martin F. Manalansan IV, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Asian American Studies, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, author of Global Divas: Filipino Gay Men in the Diaspora. Focusing on a household of undocumented queer immigrants living in a cramped apartment in New York City, the presentation "feels" its way through their everyday narratives of pathos, exuberance and disaffection as they navigate precarious conditions and seemingly impossible plights. This is an ethnography of affect that works through and "feels out" a vernacular map of subaltern queer life as constituted by mess and impossibility while buttressed by a scaffolding of longings, aspirations and hope.

This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Women & Gender Studies, LGBTQ Studies Program, Center for Asian Studies, Department of English, Department of Anthropology, and Department of Ethnic Studies.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

An overview of fast and robust communication-avoiding algorithms

In this talk I will discuss one of the main challenges in high performance computing: the increased cost of communication with respect to computation, where communication refers to data transferred either between processors or between different levels of memory hierarchy, including possibly NVMs (non-volatile memories).  I will overview novel communication-avoiding numerical methods and algorithms that reduce the communication to a minimum for operations that are at the heart of many calculations, in particular numerical linear algebra algorithms.  Those algorithms range from iterative methods (as used in numerical simulations) to low-rank matrix approximations for data analytics (based on LU/QR factorizations with column tournament pivoting).  I will also discuss the algorithm/architecture matching of those algorithms

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibition: Be Here Now
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibition: Janelle Iglesias
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

This exhibition is generously supported by a Roser Visiting Artist Endowment, an Arts Mini Grant funded by the College of Arts and Sciences, CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

2016 Innovative Seed Grant Application Deadline
All Day

Innovative Seed Grant Program

The Offices of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Research are pleased to announce the 2016 Innovative Seed Grant competition (http://www.colorado.edu/vcr/fundingawards/innovative-seed-grant-program) to stimulate new and exciting areas of research and creative work on the CU Boulder campus. Funding up to $1M will be available to provide grants of up to $50,000 including $250K set aside to support work connected to the campus Grand Challenge (http://www.colorado.edu/grandchallenges/).

Announcing the new deadlines for the 2016 Innovative Seed Grant Competition

1)    Grant Submission Deadline: February 14, 2016 at 11:59 PM MST

2)    Grant Panel Reviews: March 2016

3)    Winner Notification: Early April 2016

 

Please see the VCR’s Innovative Seed Grant Program Page at: https://www.colorado.edu/vcr/fundingawards/innovative-seed-grant-program.

 

We are looking for research, scholarship, and creative projects that:

  • Involve new interdisciplinary initiatives that take investigators in creative, and sometimes high-risk, high-reward directions including team development proposals for future large team research projects
  • Have tangible payoffs in terms of future funding, scholarly or artistic impact, or development of new productive collaborations

 

The projects may take a variety of forms but must represent an investment in the future research, scholarly, or artistic vitality of the university and demonstrate promise for expansion of the project goals in the future. The projects can come from any discipline at the university, with those involving interdisciplinary work that will foster collaborative interaction among CU faculty particularly welcome. We would like to stress that proposals are judged in categories designed to allow faculty from all disciplines the opportunity to compete successfully, even if their discipline is not traditionally connected to sponsored research. We especially welcome proposals for work in emerging fields. 

This year, there is a new and unique opportunity for faculty who would like to become part of the campus Grand Challenge supporting Our Space. Our Future. and take the Challenge into new and exciting directions. Funding has been set aside for projects that branch out and strengthen the ongoing work and contribute to ensuring a global impact on our goals of improving our reputation, diversifying our revenue streams, and ensuring student success. These projects need to be distinctive from and synergistic with the Grand Challenge projects already underway. Applicants should clearly identify if their submitted proposal is in support of the Grand Challenge and how it will address and strengthen the goals of the university.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

This talk will be presented by Mingsheng Xu, a current visiting scholar at CU.

It took a long time for Daoism to establish a systematic and consolidated pantheon, and this process lasted from the Han Dynasty to the Southern Song Dynasty as it is acknowledged. Although the Daoist pantheon is complicated, we can still trace the innovation of it through the Daoist scriptures at different historical periods. From this innovation, we can discover some characteristics of Daoism religion which constitute for the important basis of Chinese traditional beliefs.

Lunch will be provided for attendees.

3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Speaker 1 - 3:30-4:30 p.m.
Charalampos Tsourakakis on "Mining Tools for Large-Scale Networks"

ABSTRACT: Finding large near-cliques in massive networks is a notoriously hard problem of great importance to many applications, including anomaly detection in security, community detection in social networks, and mining the Web graph. How can we exploit idiosyncrasies of real-world networks in order to solve this NP-hard problem efficiently? Can we find dense subgraphs in graph streams with a single pass over the stream? Can we design near real time algorithms  for time-evolving networks? In this talk, Tsourakakis will answer these questions in the affirmative. He will also present state-of-the-art exact and approximation algorithms for extraction of large near-cliques from large-scale networks, the k-clique densest subgraph problem, which run in a few seconds on a typical laptop.  He will present graph mining applications, including anomaly detection in citation networks, planning a successful cocktail party and engineering applications on Tera-scale networks. Tsourakakis  will conclude his talk with some interesting research directions.

BIO: Charalampos Tsourakakis is currently a CRCS Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University. He received his PhD from the Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization (ACO) program at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). He also holds a Master of Science from the Machine Learning Department at CMU. He did his undergraduate studies in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). He is the recipient of a best paper award in IEEE Data Mining, and has designed two graph mining libraries for tera-scale graphs. The former has been officially included in Windows Azure, while the latter was a research highlight of Microsoft Research. His main research interest lies in designing scalable and data-aware algorithms for massive networks that recover hidden structure and solve complex data-driven problems.
 

Speaker 2 - 4:30-5:30 p.m. 
Philip Guo on "Interactive Systems for Learning Programming at Scale"

ABSTRACT: Computer programming is now a vital skill, but millions of people around the world struggle to learn it on their own without being able to get help from a human tutor. To address this significant access gap, Guo created Python Tutor (pythontutor.com), a pedagogical code visualization and social learning system. He then generalized Python Tutor's visualization engine into a language-independent platform called Rosetta, which now visualizes code written in seven popular languages: Python, Java, C, C++, Ruby, JavaScript and TypeScript.

So far, over 1.5 million people in over 180 countries have used Rosetta to visualize over 15 million pieces of code, making it by far the most widely-used system of its kind. This unique scale inspires new types of interactive systems for online learning, along with the ability to evaluate those systems on orders of magnitude more subjects than is possible in traditional lab studies.

This talk, Guo will describe the Rosetta visualization platform and two social learning systems built upon it: 1.) Codechella enables multiple people to simultaneously write code together, visually explore its run-time state using multiple cursors, and text chat to perform tutoring and collaborative learning. 2.) Codeopticon enables a single tutor to efficiently monitor dozens of learners as they are coding and then step in to offer proactive assistance. Taken together, these systems help people around the world learn programming even when they do not have access to scarce in-person tutoring resources.

BIO: Philip Guo is an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Rochester. His research spans human-computer interaction, online learning, and data science. To enable learning programming at scale, he created Python Tutor (pythontutor.com), a code visualization and social learning platform that has been used by over 1.5 million people in over 180 countries to visualize over 15 million pieces of code. Philip received SB and MEng degrees in EECS from MIT in 2006 and a PhD in Computer Science from Stanford in 2012. His PhD dissertation was one of the first to create productivity tools for data scientists. Before becoming an assistant professor in Fall 2014, he built online learning tools at Google, edX, and MIT CSAIL. Learn more at www.pgbovine.net

Event Image Holland & Hart Tech Talk
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

In 1947, Denver attorneys Steve Hart and Joe Holland left established local practices to form a new, distinctly client-focused law firm. Over the years, Holland & Hart has grown to be the largest law firm in the Mountain West Region, with over 480 attorneys in 15 offices including Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Washington D.C.
Each Holland & Hart office offers the personal service you expect from a local firm, yet is backed by our nationally recognized lawyers and by today's most advanced computer technology. 
Holland & Hart provides legal counsel to individuals and companies of all sizes, from emerging businesses to large public corporations located throughout the country and internationally. 
Our goal is to develop long-term client relationships, based on close cooperation and solid results. We are committed to providing quality legal services to our clients, while maintaining a dynamic and satisfying work environment, and encouraging the professional and personal growth of individuals in the firm. 
We are committed to the growth and success of the firm by providing full service to our clients and their emerging legal services needs. We consistently hire lawyers with prior experience in other practice settings - senior associates and partners alike - and view them as important and strong contributors to our clients' satisfaction. 
We also consistently hire lawyers who happily make the move from the biggest of national firms - you know, those big-city bi-coastal firms? Denver is big-city enough for us, and apparently for them too. 
In addition to associate level lateral moves, we are always interested in exploring ways to expand our capabilities by bringing in partner-level lawyers, as well. As you'd expect, compensation and benefit packages for partners are unique. They are most often negotiated instead of following a set schedule.

Our Engineering Center: How a 50-year-old Building Continues to Impact Access and Equality for Modern Students
Janet Tsai, Post-Doctoral Research Associate, Engineering Plus

The CU Engineering Center celebrates its quinquagenary (50th birthday) in May 2016. Built at the height of the Space Race and Cold War, its distinctive concrete brutalist exterior was intended to demonstrate the cutting-edge research being performed there. Using the building as an example of a physical structure which has shaped and organized student activities across five decades, we will discuss ways that we can learn from the past and take informed action in light of historical legacies and traditions which may be surreptitiously limiting inclusion and diversity efforts in our disciplines.

Event Image AIA Lecture Series: Saint Peter in Rome: A Historian’s Perspective
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join Dr. Tyler Lansford, author and instructor within the CU Department of Classics as he explains the Petrine tradition in its historical and archaeological context in "St. Peter in Rome: A Historian's Perspective.”

During the early Christian centuries, the tradition that the apostle Peter had ministered and died in Rome formed a leading component of Rome's claim to ecclesiastical primacy within the church universal.  As early as the second century, the Christian community of Rome identified a site where Peter was believed to be buried: progressively monumentalized, the memoria Petri (Tomb of Peter) today lies directly below the high altar of St. Peter's Basilica. 

Event Image Supply-Side Economics with Brian Domitrovic
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The Conservative Thought and Policy Program speaker series presents:

Supply-Side Economics:

The Challenge of Overcoming Slow-Growth in this Millennium

Featuring Brian Domitrovic, CU-Boulder’s Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought & Policy

Wed., Feb. 17, 2016
7:00 p.m.
Benson Earth Sciences Room 180
University of Colorado Boulder

This event is free and open to the public.

Supply-side economics was the policy innovation of a generation ago that put an end to the “stagflation” episode of the 1970s and early 1980s. Its formula of monetary restraint in concert with tax-rate cuts was also crucial to the booms of the 1960s and the Roaring 1920s. In our contemporary environment of economic near-stagnation, the tradition of supply-side economics remains relevant and instructive.

Brian Domitrovic is the leading historian of supply-side economics. His book Econoclasts (2009) chronicled the history of the movement from its origins in academia in the 1950s through its policy triumph in the Ronald Reagan years. He will speak about the useful ways that the tradition of supply-side economics can inform our urgent debate over how to restore economic growth today.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Event Image Exhibition: Be Here Now
11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Event Image Exhibition: Janelle Iglesias
11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Complex/Dynamical Systems Seminar - Shane Keating
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Shane Keating, School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of New South Wales

The Oceanic Charney Problem: the role of surface buoyancy gradients on mesocale 
eddies and waves
The effect of a surface buoyancy gradient --- or, equivalently, a surface shear --- on the formation,
vertical structure, and transport properties of mesoscale eddies and waves is studied in an “oceanic”
version of the classical Charney problem. The analysis is carried out in the context of a simple model
flow that permits a systematic study of the competing effects of surface buoyancy, planetary vorticity,
and baroclinic shear in terms of two nondimensional parameters that emerge naturally from the problem:
the Charney-Green number relating the strength of the planetary potential vorticity gradient to
the surface buoyancy gradient, and the Phillips supercriticality quantifying the stability of the mean shear
profile. It is shown that the presence of a surface buoyancy gradient implies faster Rossby wave propagation
and subtly modifies the classical criteria for Charney and Phillips-type instability. This has important
consequences for the ensuing nonlinear equilibrated flow, resulting in an energized submesoscale
energy spectrum. In addition, the surface buoyancy gradient rapidly generates buoyancy variance close
to the surface, strongly modifying the nature of the turbulent cascades and the vertical structure of
the eddies. Idealized quasigeostrophic simulations show a transition from surface quasigeostrophic
turbulence near the surface to classical geostrophic turbulence in the interior.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Radial Basis Function-Generated Finite Differences (RBF-FD): New Computational Opportunities in the Geosciences

A novel mathematical methodology is presented for modeling a wide array of physics in the geosciences. It based on a mesh-less approach known as radial basis function -generated finite differences. Due to its independence of any grids or mappings for irregular geometries (as is needed with finite difference, volume or element methods), where the physics is resolved can be directly connected to where the observational data is sampled. As a result, it gives far better physical representations than any other methods at coarser resolutions, allowing the data to be better assimilated for initialization of models. Furthermore, it uses the same basis functions as that those used in spatial geostatistics, allowing for a more unified mathematical framework in quantifying uncertainties. Due to the structure of the resulting matrices, it scales extremely well on accelerator computer architectures. It is currently being considered at NOAA, and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF), and NCAR. Examples will be given from a variety of geoscience fields.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Getting to the Why and How
Madalyn (Madie) Kern, GTP Lead, Mechanical Engineering

In this workshop attendees will be guided to construct a five minute lesson for teaching an abstract concept from their discipline by starting with a concrete approach. The goal is to engage learners by igniting their interests through two simple questions: Why does the concept matter? and How does it apply to the real world?

Event Image St. John's Dr. Ian Miller - “Text Modeling the Emperor’s Archives..."
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

EXPLORING DIGITAL HUMANITIES: A Lecture Series on Research and Pedagogy

 

Associate Professor, Ian Matthew Miller

St. John’s University

 

“Text Modeling the Emperor’s Archives: Exploring Digital Approaches to Chinese History”

 

Center for British and Irish Studies, Norlin Library 5th floor

Monday Feb 22, 5-6:30 p.m.

 

Premodern China offers an almost unparalleled body of texts ripe for digital  analysis: hundreds of years of court and private records compiled by an infamously  large and highly literate bureaucracy, many of which have since been digitized. Yet  premodern Chinese texts pose their own set of issues – both legal and linguistic. In  this talk, Miller will detail some of the issues encountered in text modeling two  different corpora: a set of 300 thousand entries in the records of the imperial court;  and a set of more than 600 genealogical essays in private collections. Miller will  explore how text modeling allows historians to capture and analyze topics across  very large numbers of texts, but also raises questions about the nature of the data  captured through these automated models.

 

About Dr. Miller:


Ian Matthew Miller is a historian of pre-modern China. His work focuses on long-term social, intellectual, and environmental change, often through the application  of digital methods. Trained at Harvard University, he has recently joined the faculty  at St. John’s University, where he is assistant professor in the Department of History.  Professor Miller’s interests include banditry and unrest, genealogy, tax policy, and  food history. His current project focuses on land ethics and wood rights in South  China.

Event Image "The Talmud as Icon" Student, Faculty, and Public Colloquium with Barry Wimpfheimer

“The Talmud as Icon”
Monday, February 22 @ 6:15PM - 7:45PM

Space is limited! RSVPs required: 
Please email CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu, or call us at 303.492.7143, to reserve a spot. 
 
The Babylonian Talmud is arguably the most important book in the Jewish tradition. But beyond the ideas that the Talmud expresses and the commentaries it has motivated, the Talmud has played an important symbolic role representing Judaism, Jewishness and Jews. In this talk, Wimpfheimer will explain how the physical form of the Talmud has come be iconized within modern Judaism.
 
Barry WimpfheimerBarry Scott Wimpfheimer is Associate Professor of Religious Studies & Law and director of The Crown Family Center of Jewish and Israel Studies at Northwestern University. Wimpfheimer’s first monograph Narrating the Law: A Poetics of Talmudic Legal Stories deconstructs a longstanding dichotomy that divides the Talmud into, respectively, legal and narrative sections.  A second monograph, The Babylonian Talmud: A Biography, (Princeton: Princeton University Press, forthcoming 2017) charts the reception of the Talmud and demonstrates the impact the work has had over the last millennium as a book, as a central aspect of Jewish intellectual discourse and as a symbol of Judaism, Jewishness and Jews. Wimpfheimer received the Salo and Jeanette Baron Prize for his 2005 Columbia University dissertation and has been a Fellow at Harvard’s Center for Jewish Studies and at Northwestern’s Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities.

All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.
