T9Hacks (Multi-Day Event)
10:00 AM

Pack a laptop, a change of clothes and some creativity, and head over to CU Boulder ATLAS for T9Hacks, an invention marathon of sorts that’s absolutely free!  T9Hacks is a place to try out new ideas and collaborate in a fun environment, an all-night event where participants race to create the next great software project. Hacking will continue for 24 hours straight, and participants don’t need programming experience. And there’s free food, too!

T9Hacks is a women’s hackathon–the “T” stands for “Title IX.” Men can attend too, but in Sadie Hawkins fashion; they need to be invited by a woman (see website for details). The event is geared towards college students (and recent college grads) to see what hackathons are about, learn, explore, and create something new. 

Explore the possibilities. Get a start on a project you’ve had in the back of your mind. Create a solution to a problem you see often. Build something you never have before. And for those who have never written a line of code–this event is especially for you. Mentors will guide you through the process.

You don’t need to attend CU Boulder to attend T9Hacks. But, you do need to register.

Title: "Building livelihood resilience in semi-arid Kenya: what role does agroforestry play?"
SEEC S216
CompSci Colloquium: David Crandall (IU Bloomington)
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Egocentric Computer Vision, for Fun and Science

ABSTRACT: New sources of large-scale visual data raise both opportunities and challenges for computer vision. For example, each of the nearly trillion photos on Facebook is an observation of what the world looked like at a particular point in time and space, and what a particular photographer was paying attention to. Meanwhile, low-cost wearable cameras (like GoPro) are entering the mainstream, allowing people to record and share their lives from a first-person, "egocentric" perspective. How can vision help people organize these (and other) vast but noisy datasets? What could mining these rich datasets reveal about ourselves and about the world in general? 

In this talk, Crandall will describe recent work investigating these questions, focusing on two lines of work on egocentric imagery as examples. The first is for consumer applications, where the goal is to develop automated classifiers to help categorize lifelogging images across several dimensions. The second is an interdisciplinary project using computer vision with wearable cameras to study parent-child interactions in order to better understand child learning. Despite the different goals, these applications share common themes of robustly recognizing image content in noisy, highly dynamic, unstructured imagery.

BIO: David Crandall is an associate professor in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University Bloomington, where he is a member of the programs in Computer Science, Informatics, Cognitive Science, and Data Science, and of the Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research. He received the PhD in computer science from Cornell University in 2008 and the MS and BS degrees in computer science and engineering from Pennsylvania State University in 2001. He was a postdoctoral research associate at Cornell from 2008-2010, and a senior research scientist with Eastman Kodak Company from 2001-2003. He received an NSF CAREER Award in 2013 and a Google Faculty Research Award in 2014.

Special Physics Colloquium, "Top quarks & beyond at the Large Hadron Collider"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Louise Skinnari, CERN
NOTE SPECIAL LOCATION: DUAN G130

Abstract: The first run of the Large Hadron Collider has been a great success, most notably with the discovery of the Higgs boson. Despite the continued triumph of the Standard Model, important questions about how nature works on small scales remain unanswered. Top quarks, the most massive of all known elementary particles, play a central role in many of the extensions to the Standard Model that have been proposed to address these questions. A precise understanding of top quarks and their production and properties is therefore critical. In this talk, I will discuss the motivation and status of top quark physics at the LHC, presenting recent results from the CMS experiment. I will additionally give an outlook to the future upgrade of the LHC.

Silicon Flatirons: Crash Course - Building Great Boards
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

For startups, emerging growth companies and established firms, the challenge of building a great board is often overlooked or underappreciated. For startup companies, the first question is whether and when to establish an operating board (or an advisory board, for that matter). For those companies with established boards, the question is how to use them effectively, avoiding any dysfunctional or counterproductive behavior that can sometimes take hold. In this crash course, we will discuss how a great board is an important opportunity for a company to elicit honest feedback, hold the leadership accountable to key goals and engage valuable resources in the company’s mission. It will also evaluate the potential pitfalls of boards, including how to manage investors on a board who have interests that may diverge from the company’s or the founder’s vision; how boards can best manage, mentor and hire/fire CEOs; what to look for in recruiting board members and how to use them most effectively.

Physics Colloquium, "Searching for Supersymmetry at the LHC"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Keith Ulmer, Texas A&M

Abstract: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN currently provides the highest energy particle collisions ever produced in a laboratory. These collisions were reconstructed and analyzed by the CMS and ATLAS experiments to claim the discovery of the Higgs Boson in 2012, thus completing the standard model of particle physics. This talk explores what's next for the LHC, including the implications of the Higgs discovery on the search for new physics beyond the standard model. In particular, such open questions as the nature of dark matter and the gauge hierarchy problem may find eloquent solutions in supersymmetry, a proposed new symmetry of nature relating fermions and bosons. I will discuss the current state of experimental searches for supersymmetry at CMS, including the near term prospects for discovery, and will conclude with an example of the innovative new technological solutions being explored to continue the hunt for new physics into the High Luminosity LHC era set to begin in the coming decade.

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

Bistability and Hopf Bifurcation in a Refined Model of the Acute Stage of HIV Infection

Recent clinical studies have shown that HIV disease pathogenesis can depend strongly on 
many factors at the time of transmission, including the strength of the initial viral load and
the local availability of CD4+ T-cells. To facilitate these new advances, we will describe a
refined in-host model of HIV infection that incorporates the homeostatic proliferation of
T-cells. Due to the effects of this biological process, the influence of initial conditions on
the proliferation of HIV infection and the dynamics of the model is further elucidated. In
particular, our study of the new model extends previous theoretical and computational
work on the acute stage of the disease and leads to interesting nonlinear dynamics,
including a parameter region featuring bistability of infectious and viral clearance
equilibria and the appearance of a Hopf bifurcation within biologically relevant parameter
regimes, which may be linked to the appearance of so-called "viral blips”

CompSci Colloquium: Yan Shoshitaishvili (UC Santa Barbara)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Making the World Safer Through Cyber-Autonomy

ABSTRACT: Our world is driven by interconnected software. While this connectivity provides functionality and convenience, it is not without risks: vulnerabilities are still rampant in modern software, and the exploitation of these vulnerabilities turns our connectivity into a liability. With the recent proliferation of "smart" devices, more vulnerable software than ever is connected to the internet, and open to attackers.

We must find and fix these vulnerabilities before they can be exploited. In this talk, Shoshitaishvili will describe his research into an analysis pipeline that is flexible and extensible enough to target the identification of different types of vulnerabilities in binary code. He will discuss angr, the analysis framework powering this pipeline, and detail how angr can be applied not only to vulnerability identification in binary code, but to vulnerability remediation as well. Finally, he will show the culmination of these techniques in the form of the Mechanical Phish, one of the world's first fully autonomous hacking systems. Last year, the Mechanical Phish won third place in the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge by autonomously finding, exploiting, and patching vulnerabilities in a live competition, at a scale that could not be achieved by human hackers.

Shoshitaishvili has open-sourced the Mechanical Phish and the angr framework that powers it. The growing community around the project, including research labs and companies around the world, are actively pushing forward the frontier of binary analysis. With ever-improving vulnerability detection and remediation techniques, we hope to introduce automated binary analysis techniques into the standard arsenal of the "good guys," making our world more secure in the process.
BIO: Yan Shoshitaishvili is a PhD candidate at UC Santa Barbara, with a primary research focus of program analysis and vulnerability identification. He is currently the captain of the Shellphish computer hacking group, and guides them through cybersecurity competitions worldwide. Over the last two years, Shoshitaishvili led Shellphish's participation in the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge, applying his research to the creation of a fully autonomous hacking system that won third place in the competition. Underpinning this system is angr, an open-source binary analysis project founded by Yan in the course of his research.

Multiscale Methods in Ocean Modeling

Equations describing the motions of the ocean are reasonably well known, but numerical ocean models are unable to resolve all length scales. Rather than view numerical ocean models as hopelessly inaccurate approximations to the aforementioned equations, one should view them as approximations to the dynamics of the resolvable scales. But equations describing the motions of the resolvable scales are not reasonably well known. The development of models for nonlinear multiscale complex dynamical systems is squarely within the scope of Applied Mathematics, and represents a challenge to that discipline. This talk will describe a range of approaches to the development of analytical and computational models, from rigorous to formal to semi-empirical, describing the resolvable scales of the ocean.

MW: God & Politics in the Classroom: Teaching Controversial Texts at a Public University
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

God and Politics in the Classroom: Teaching Controversial Texts at a Public University - ATLAS 301

Elias Sacks, Associate Professor, Religious Studies, CU Boulder

How do we teach about topics such as religion and politics?  How do we create learning spaces in which students can engage controversial texts and discuss sensitive matters on which they might hold very different positions—spaces in which students can articulate their own commitments while also taking seriously (and being intellectually vulnerable to) views they might find objectionable?  We will explore these questions, developing and practicing strategies for productively leading discussions about topics such as religious belief, public policy, race, and sexuality.  We will devote particular attention to the challenges (and opportunities) involved in engaging such topics at a public university, as well as the question of what it means to teach material with which we might disagree.

CompSci Colloquium: Alexandra Kolla (University of Illinois)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

The Sound of Graphs

ABSTRACT: In this talk, Kolla will discuss major implications that linear algebraic techniques have in understanding and resolving hard computational and graph theoretical questions, as well as unifying various areas of mathematics and computer science. She will focus on two representative examples, stemming from two key areas of computer science, namely computational complexity and robust network design respectively: 

-- Resolving the infamous Unique Games Conjecture and its implications to the theory of inapproximability.
-- Constructing optimal expander graphs, and its implications to fault tolerant network design and clustering. 

Kolla will show how, via the prism of spectral graph theory, those seemingly unrelated questions can be seen to be deeply connected. She will present techniques she developed to tackle both problems, which span a wide range of areas such as linear algebra, convex optimization, group theory, harmonic analysis and probability theory. 

BIO: Alexandra Kolla is an assistant professor at the Computer Science Department at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She was a Simons Institute fellow for the academic year 2013-2014. She got her PhD at the University of California Berkeley, then did a postdoc at the Institute for Advanced Study and at Microsoft Research. Her research focuses on theoretical computer science and specifically spectral graph theory and its applications.

MALfunction #5: Dissent
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

MALfunction: A series of intimate events that question where media and society, research and practice meet. Each MALfunction features one researcher and one artist whose projects examine a similar technological theme. FREE.

Curated by Maya Livio

Researcher: Jonas Kaiser // The Right Wing-Web
Artist: Laleh Mehran // Symbolic Patterns of Structure and Control

Jonas Kaiser 
Right-wing organizations have been on the fringes of society in the US and Western Europe for most of the last 60 years. This, however, has changed. The financial crisis, migrant crisis, and potential threats of terrorism have eroded the borders between the right-wing and political mainstream, with right-wing populist parties and civil movements preying on society’s feelings of uncertainty and powerlessness. In his talk, Kaiser will shine a light on the role of white nationalist websites in the US election, and outline how right-wing organizations have been connecting internationally to strengthen their national agendas. 

Jonas Kaiser is a communications scholar, Fellow at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, and Associate Researcher at Humboldt Institute for Internet & Society. His research focuses on the online presence of right-wing populist and extremist organisations in Germany, Sweden, and the US. Specifically, he is interested in how right-wing organisations attempt to bridge the gap with mainstream politics, and how they connect internationally. Jonas earned his doctoral degree at Zeppelin University in Germany with an analysis of climate change skepticism in the German networked public sphere. 

Laleh Mehran 
Sharing the inspirations, methodologies, and processes in her work, Laleh Mehran will discuss the complexities involved in creating artworks that critique dominant political ideologies, and the threat of severe personal ramifications that can emerge. Some of the pieces she will discuss include Men of God, Men of Nature and Entropic Order—two works she has exhibited regionally, which speak critically to these issues.

Laleh Mehran was born in Iran and relocated with her family to the United States at the start of the Iranian Islamic Revolution. For nearly 20 years, Mehran has been creating elaborate digital and physical artworks inspired by Eastern and Western aesthetic sensibilities. Focused on the complicated intersections between politics, religion, and science, she strives to call attention to these concepts with the awareness that in today’s political climate, certain views can have extreme consequences for the speaker. These considerations influence her to create artistic spaces for critical thought, dialogue, and aesthetics while raising the question of the viewer's relation to each of these fundamental systems. 

Mehran received her MFA from Carnegie Mellon University. Her work has been shown individually and as part of collectives in venues including the International Symposium on Electronic Art (United Arab Emirates), National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (Taiwan), Electronic Language International Festival (Brazil), Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (Massachusetts), The Georgia Museum of Art (Georgia), The Andy Warhol Museum (Pennsylvania), Denver Art Museum (Colorado), Biennial of the Americas at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (Colorado), 404 International Festival of Art & Technology (Argentina), Next 5 Minutes 4 Tactical Media Festival (Netherlands), and the European Media Arts Festival (Germany). Mehran is a Professor and Graduate Director in the Emergent Digital Practices program at the University of Denver.

Please join us and our friends from CU Boulder University Libraries for a fun, inclusive one-day event that brings together diverse communities to create and improve Wikipedia articles related to women in the arts! 
Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a gender gap, and its content is skewed by the lack of women’s voices. This represents an alarming absence in an important repository of shared knowledge, especially as our society is increasingly beset by rampant misinformation. Join us in changing this! We’re gathering women and allies together to celebrate women's cultural achievements and edit Wikipedia articles about women in the arts.

All are welcome, and no Wikipedia editing experience is necessary; tutoring will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers. Women editors, especially women of color and diverse gender expression, are encouraged to attend. 

Please bring a laptop if possible. There will be a limited number of computers available.

“Rock, Rap, and Laughter”
So a stand-up comic, a literary scholar, and a behavioral scientist walk into a lecture hall, and a Western American historian hands them the question, "What’s so funny about pop music?" 

To hear the answer, along with an abundance of punch lines, plan to walk into that lecture hall yourself: Old Main Chapel, 6:30 p.m., March 8. 

Join comic Shane Mauss (From Conan, Jimmy Kimmel, Showtime, Comedy Central, Netflix and host of the science podcast “Here We Are”) and CU professors Adam Bradley (author of The Poetry of Pop and director of the Laboratory for Race & Popular Culture, the RAP Lab) and Peter McGraw (co-author of The Humor Code and director of the Humor Research Lab, HuRL) for an evening of learning and laughter. Why do some subjects shock us in speech but amuse us in song? What makes both Bruce Springsteen and Kanye West laugh? Through a blend of stand-up and science, music and comedy we’ll unlock some of the mysteries of two primal urges: shaking our butt and laughing out loud. 

This event is sponsored by the Center of the American West and its ongoing Humor Initiative, which explores the value of humor as the equivalent of WD-40 in friction-filled times, in collaboration with the RAP Lab and HuRL. 

The Humor Initiative is made possible by the generosity of Bill and Jane Reynolds.

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

Event Image What is Research in English: Finding Archival Sources
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

This is the first of three faculty panel sessions, scheduled for Spring and Fall 2017, titled, “What is Research in English?

At these sessions, English department faculty will introduce students to the vast range of faculty research projects that are currently being conducted by tenured and tenure-track faculty members.  

At each event, which will feature an informal catered lunch, four different faculty members will speak about their research. This will enable students to ask questions about the particulars of these varied projects—e.g. How do faculty members decide upon their research topics? Where does a faculty member begin, in terms of creating a new research project? What do faculty members actually do once they are in an archive or another generative resource? How do faculty members decipher difficult-to-read handwriting? How much time should a researcher spend assembling archival materials? How does a faculty member analyze the research that he or she has assembled?

Silicon Flatirons Conference: The Social Impact of Artificial Intelligence
1:00 PM - 5:45 PM

“The next generation of artificial intelligence (AI) promises to have an impact as big as the mobile revolution or the Internet revolution before that,” state Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google’s parent, Alphabet, Inc., and Jared Cohen, director of Google Ideas. Or, as The Economist put it, “The robots are coming. And we will be merging, mating and morphing with them.” AI is already entering our lives—think Siri, self-driving cars and programmed stock trading—and this trend will only accelerate. Recognizing AI’s impact, the White House issued a report on AI in the fall of 2016, with two White House officials calling for increased attention on this topic to “develop the positive aspects of the technology, manage its risks and challenges, and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to help in building an AI-enhanced society.” At this conference, we will bring together futurists, entrepreneurs, academics and policymakers to consider the social implications of AI. In particular, after introducing AI and its social, legal and policy implications in a panel format, the conference will discuss AI’s implications for civil rights, law and governance and the future of the workforce in interactive breakout groups.

Location: TBD
Event Image 18/19 Speaker Event: Jon Klancher on March 9
4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Jon Klancher of Carnegie Mellon University for his talk, "Origins of the Concept of 'Scale': Reading the Print Technologies 1680-1820," on March 9th, 4:30-6pm, in ECON 13. Dr. Klancher will be introduced by Professor Thora Brylowe.

Dr. Klancher's talk should be of particular interest to anyone working in the broad fields of print culture, book history, and media studies.

--

Dr. Jon Klancher is Professor of English at Carnegie Mellon University. His research has focused on the British Romantic and Victorian periods, print history, and the sociology of culture.  He has recently published a book on the emergence of new fields of knowledge in the early nineteenth century, Transfiguring the Arts and Sciences: Knowledge and Cultural Institutions in the Romantic Age (Cambridge University Press, Fall 2013).  At present he is working on the historical relationship of so-called "new" and "old" media in a project on book history, the long nineteenth century, and the current debates around new media and digital humanities. He is also author of The Making of English Reading Audiences, 1790-1832, and related essays on Romantic-age cultural and media history, and in recent years he has edited A Concise Companion to the Romantic Age for Blackwell and contributed to a wide range of article collections and reference books.

Abstract: "The concept of 'scale' has become a newly important and complex idea in several disciplines across the humanities--from the debate on the Anthropocene, to questions of globalization and cultural geography, to the controversy about digital humanities and literary studies.  In this talk, I look behind such fields to ask: where we did we get the modern language of scale in the first place? Using long-eighteenth-century scientific and artisanal or mechanical-arts print genres as a basis, I ask how measures of labor skill in the early modern period might translate into intellectual skills and methods in the Romantic age and nineteenth century. The focal point here will be the epicconfrontation between Romanticism and the Utilitarian visions of knowledge pursued by Jeremy Bentham. By showing how scale works there, I aim to ask new questions about the humanities’ long-term resistance to scale-thinking and why this history may inform the new fascination with questions of scale now."

Event Image CU on the Weekend: Mayan Commoners and Their Uncommon Lives
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Archaeologists have long known about the opulent lifestyles of Mayan kings, queens and their courts. But what about most Mayans from that time period? During an archaeological survey in 1978 in El Salvador, anthropology professor Payson Sheets discovered an ancient Mayan village buried under fifteen feet of volcanic ash that for the first time offered a clear window into how Mayan commoners lived. In this lecture, Sheets will discuss his discovery of a village he named “Ceren” that was perfectly preserved when a volcano erupted in 660 A.D. The village of about 200 farmers and craftspeople had a surprisingly high quality of life, as indicated by earthquake-resistant architecture, specialized religious and public buildings, ample household buildings, varied diet, and access to some luxury goods. This lecture is part of the CU on the Weekend series, which features some of CU Boulder's most dynamic faculty. The classroom opens at 12:30 p.m. Arriving early is recommended, since seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Advance registration is not required, and reservations will not be accepted.

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $200 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $200! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

Mary Czerwinski: Lessons Learned from Designing Interventions for Health and Wellbeing
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Affective computing is emerging as an important field in the design of emotional, intelligent, conversational agents that can be used in the healthcare arena, but also in everyday life. In addition, ubiquitous recording, both in the field and in the doctor's office/patient's home, has influenced how we think about wellbeing in the future. In our research, we use sensing technologies to develop contextualized and precise delivery of interventions, both in terms of the content and in the timing the intervention delivery, using machine learning algorithms. I will discuss how we use affective computing technologies to deliver just in time health interventions for improved health and for personal, behavioral reflection. For example, I will describe the Entendre project, which has implications for the design of visual feedback to encourage empathic patient-centered communication. I will also talk about ParentGuardian, a wearable sensing system that delivers just in time interventions to parents with ADHD children. In addition, I'll present our findings from two applications that deliver interventions and skills from psychology for coping with conditions ranging from general stress and depression to serious mental illness, like the intent to commit suicide, using conversational agents that users trust. Finally, I'll briefly touch on some of our designs for helping users to reflect on their daily behaviors in order to improve general well-being.

Dr. Mary Czerwinski is a Principal Researcher and Research Manager of the Visualization and Interaction (VIBE) Research Group. Mary's latest research focuses primarily on emotion tracking and intervention design and delivery, information worker task management and health and wellness for individuals and groups. Her research background is in visual attention and multitasking. She holds a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Indiana University in Bloomington. Mary was awarded the ACM SIGCHI Lifetime Service Award, was inducted into the CHI Academy, and became an ACM Distinguished Scientist in 2010. She also received the Distinguished Alumni award from Indiana University's Brain and Psychological Sciences department in 2014. Mary became a Fellow of the ACM in 2016.

Honors Program Distinguished Lecture Series: Reiland Rabaka
6:30 PM

Have you ever wondered what rap music and hip hop culture may have “inherited” from the popular music and political movements of the past? This presentation offers an imaginative mash-up. Juxtaposing the popular culture and political culture of previous movements, such as the Harlem Renaissance and the Black Arts Movement, with rap music and the Hip Hop Movement in the present, this presentation explores the origins and evolution of modern black popular culture from the Jazz Age through to Obama’s America.

Reiland Rabaka is Professor and Chair of the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He also has faculty affiliations with the Department of Women & Gender Studies, Humanities Program, Graduate Program in Critical Theory, School of Education, College of Media, Communication & Information, and College of Music at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

This initiative is part of the Inside the Greenhouse project at CU-Boulder. This competition is co-sponsored by the Center of the American West.

This Inside the Greenhouse project acknowledges that, to varying degrees, we are all implicated in, part of, and responsible for greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. We treat this ‘greenhouse’ as a living laboratory, an intentional place for growing new ideas and evaluating possibilities to confront climate change through a range of mitigation and adaptation strategies.

Our project is also associated with the Spring 2017 ‘creative climate communications’ course (ENVS3173/THTR4173/ATLS4173) at CU-Boulder.

When a newly engaged couple gets caught in a storm and meets the tan, muscular new creation of mad transvestite scientist Frank N. Furter, their world is forever changed. First premiered at a small experimental theater in London more than 40 years ago, “The Rocky Horror Show” is now a worldwide stage hit.

Note: CU-Boulder’s University Theatre will provide props for audience members. Please do not bring your own.

Back to Basics: Building Block Concepts in the Classroom

Chris Ostro, Program of Writing and Rhetoric, CU Boulder

One of the most common mistakes new teachers make is overestimating the experience and knowledge of their students.  It’s easy for us, as experts in a field we’ve studied for 5 or 10 years (or even more!) to forget the sorts of things we didn’t know on day 1.  This workshop will aim to help each of you identify these sorts of concepts, explore the sorts of problems these concepts can cause, and discuss solutions to those problems.

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

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