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.

Migrahack Colorado (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Join your fellow journalists, community members and programmers for a weekend of hacking into immigration data, the issues that arise from them and their role in the 2016 political campaign. Migrahack Colorado will be held at the University of Colorado Boulder. It’s fun, it’s FREE, and we’ll be done in time for you to attend your Super Bowl party. (Go Broncos!)

Trainers and facilitators will be coming from The Wall Street Journal, The San Francisco Chronicle, La Universidad Interamericano, Clemson University and the Institute for Justice & Journalism.

Migrahack’s Mission
“Most journalists and community members have never attended a hackathon. Most programmers have never worked on immigration issues. Colorado Migrahack brings them together.” It’s a three-step process: Connect, Build, Share.

Connect
Journalists, nonprofits, programmers, data analysts, designers and other community members meet and share expertise.

Build
Form teams with diverse skill sets, dive into immigration data, find some insights and create a data visualization project. Above all, have fun.

Share
We’ll share what we learn with the wider world. All projects will be open source, so that others may take them further. The energy continues.

There is no cost, but we ask you to register before so we can determine how many lunches to serve. Register online here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/colorado-migrahack-tickets-20657878270?aff=efbnreg

Migrahack Colorado is brought to you by the Institute for Justice & Journalism and the CU News Corps, which is housed in the College of Media, Communication and Information at CU-Boulder. The event will be held in the University Memorial Center.

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.

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.

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.

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.

‘First Contact’ with Global Science: A Scientist’s Perspective on IPBES Engagement


A large number of global assessments will be undertaken by the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) over the next several years providing unique opportunities for global science policy engagement for early career scientists. This presentation describes my experience with IPBES engagement over the past year, potential barriers to participation by US experts, and strategies for overcoming barriers to participation in these critically important policy relevant global assessments.


The lunch hour brown bag series offers an opportunity for graduate students, post-docs, research assistants, and faculty in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department to present current research, stories of recent travels to conduct scientific work, or other science related topics. 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.

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.

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.

How to Be a Self-starter in Your Field!
Amina Belkadi, GTP Lead, Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

One of the best post-Soviet comedy and definitely the best comedy about the Russian army.  “The student, Rifle, has managed to seduce his professor's wife, Bomber, an average working guy, has bought a factory and Bullet, the casino lover, is hiding from creditors. They all share a common path and conscription. In the army they teach you that everything must be smart and in order - cockades, straps and all, otherwise you're not fit to call yourself a person, you're a maggot. For a real man, there's no better place than the army.“

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 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.

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.

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 - 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nonlinear Waves Seminar - Willy Hereman
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Willy Hereman, Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Colorado School of Mines

Symbolic Computation of Scaling Invariant Lax Pairs in Operator Form for Completely Integrable Systems

Based on scaling symmetry properties, a direct method to compute Lax pairs in operator form for completely integrable systems will be presented.

By splitting the determining equations for the Lax pair into kinematic and dynamical constraints, the problem can eventually be reduced to solving nonlinear algebraic equations.

The method will be illustrated with well-known examples from soliton theory and applied to a three parameter class of fifth-order KdV-like evolution equations.

Preston Cumming, Lead Coordinator, Graduate Teacher Program

In this short, hands-on workshop you will learn to distill your research down to its core elements and talk about it in clear, lively terms. Starting with a tool called the Message Box, you will develop a 30-second elevator speech of what you do and why it matters, along with the elements you need to turn a mere description into a compelling story. Come ready to roll up your sleeves and up your communication game based on feedback from your peers!

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.

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 - 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.

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.

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.

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.

Phononics: manipulating phonons with electronic analog

The discovery of electronic transistor has changed our daily life in many aspects. However, a similar device to manipulate phonons – the main heat carriers in semiconductor and dielectric materials- has not yet available.

About a decade ago, we proposed a thermal diode model to rectify heat flux due to phonons in nanoscale [1]. A great progress has been achieved in this rapid developing field, including the experimental realization of solid-state thermal rectifier[2], thermal transistor model [3], and a new emerging field – Phononics [4].

In this talk, I will give an overview of past years’ development in this direction. Emphasis will be given on the fundamental principle of thermal diode, and the extension of thermal diode concept to control other energy forms including elastic energy, acoustic waves, heat carried by electrons, photons and magnons etc.

I will also present the underlying physical mechanism for negative differential thermal resistance  - an essential physical principle of building thermal transistor. The thermal transistor function like switch and amplifier will be demonstrated.

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.

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.
