Event Image Special Engagement: "To Space and Back"
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

“To Space & Back” takes audiences on an incredible journey from the far reaches of our known universe to our own planet. It is an extraordinary story of human ingenuity and incredible engineering, describing how the technology that transports us through space is paving the way for the devices and apps we use every day. Our curiosity and desire to see farther have generated two parallel stories: one reaching out into the depths of space and time, and the other reaching back down to our story here on Earth. “To Space & Back,” narrated by James May, explores the way each of us has been changed by the discoveries made by the international space program. From the devices we use every day to the tools that are breaking new ground in medicine and engineering, we can thank space exploration for making our modern lives possible.

This Fiske Special Event will be shown in full 8192x8192 pixel, 60 frames per second video with surround-sound audio. Fiske’s 8K projection system is among the finest in the world, and there are few equals, anywhere. “To Space & Back” is one of the few films that can truly demonstrate just what our magnificent theater can do, in its full-resolution glory. Come see it!”

It’s important to know who you are and what you have to offer.  Taking assessments is a great place to start as it will increase your level of self-awareness and help you know which career path is right for you.  By the end of the series, you’ll have more clarity regarding which career paths will be the best match based on your personality, interests, strengths and values.  You will have an understanding of your transferable skills, accomplishments, as well as knowledge of how to market yourself.

The MBTI is a questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. 

Strong Interest Inventory (SII)

StrengthsFinder 
Measures the presence of talent in 34 areas called “themes.”  This assessment points to your greatest talents and potential strengths.  The results given will be a description of your five Signature Talents. 

Values Card Sort 
A simple tool that helps prioritize your values. 
Conducting assessments in a group is an effective way to gain insight through feedback from the counselors and other participants.

"Computational Challenges in Large-Scale Social Networks"

Abstract:
Problems involving social networks and massive social datasets motivate some of the most difficult computational challenges today, and there is a pressing demand for understanding the structure of these problems. The design and measurement of social networks is commonly studied for properties shared with other networks, when in fact many aspects are specifically characteristics of social contexts. The spread of ideas is often studied as an epidemiological process, but very little research has examined how individuals make social decisions when adopting ideas. In the online world, experimentation using A/B tests does not account for social interference between treatment units, making it poorly suited for many studies on social networks. In this talk I will present research on these challenges (social structure, social contagion, social experimentation), developing computational approaches adapted to understanding the structure of social networks and social processes, and also to impacting the design of large-scale online social systems.

Bio:
Johan Ugander is a Ph.D. candidate at Cornell University, advised by Jon Kleinberg. His research develops tools for analyzing massive social graphs and other large-scale social data, aiming to provide a better understanding of social structure and human decision making while also impacting the design of large-scale computational systems. He is the recipient of the WSDM '13 Best Student Paper Award and the WebSci '12 Best Paper Award, and his work has been featured in popular-media outlets including The New York Times, The Economist, NPR, and Wired.

Event Image It’s Not Over ‘Till It’s Over: Why The Legal Battles Over Obamacare Will Continue for Years to Come
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

The constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) was thought to have been settled at the Supreme Court in June 2012, but Jonathan Adler begs to differ.

Adler and other legal scholars have noticed several additional legal defects that are currently making their way through the federal courts.  An adverse ruling on the provision of state subsidies could unravel the entire edifice, but additional defects await legal scrutiny.

He will make this case in a public talk on campus. Adler appears at the invitation of Steven Hayward, CU-Boulder’s Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy.

Adler is the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Business Law and Regulation at Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland.  A specialist in environmental, administrative, and constitutional law, he is the author or editor of four books on environmental policy and more than a dozen book chapters.

His articles have appeared in publications ranging from the Harvard Environmental Law Review and Supreme Court Economic Review to The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post.

Adler is a contributing editor to National Review Online and a regular contributor to the popular legal blog “The Volokh Conspiracy” (http://volokh.com), how hosted by the Washington Post.

"HIGH-IMPACT RESEARCH: BLENDING BASIC & APPLIED METHODS"

DLC 170
Wednesday, March 12
12-1pm

Abstract:
Vannevar Bush’s 1945 book Science: The Endless Frontier, made a sharp distinction between basic (or pure) and applied research, urging strong government support for academic basic research and warning that “applied research invariably drives out pure”. He also suggested the “linear model” in which basic research leads to applied research, and then commercial development. These biased views are still widely held, so a fresh analysis is needed to repair the damage and to provide a guiding framework for scientific researchers across many disciplines.

The High-Impact Research framework integrates current concepts that have been voiced by many people:
• Science research projects that address basic and applied questions, seek theoretical and practical outcomes, and are inspired by curiosity-driven as well as mission-driven goals are likely to have the greatest payoffs.
• These increased expectations may require teamwork from interdisciplinary participants and from those who are skilled with multiple research methods: randomized controlled trials, ethnographic case studies, automatic logging, retrospective analysis, etc. Teamwork can be difficult, but has a stronger possibility of producing breakthrough results.
• Since complex problems are resistant to reductionist approaches and small laboratory controlled experiments, high-impact can be achieved by using new research methods that depend on interventions that are evaluated in large-scale systems. Such repeated interventions constitute case studies that can provide evidence to support or falsify hypotheses. Guidelines for promoting and reporting rigorous case studies will accelerate progress.

"Sensing Planning for Robotic Environmental Monitoring: Systems and Algorithms"

Abstract:
Data collected from the environment is becoming increasingly important for studying complex phenomena such as climate change. Robotic sensing systems will revolutionize this area by enabling access to data gathered at unprecedented spatio-temporal scales. Environmental science applications, in turn, motivate challenging robotics research problems. In this talk, I will present new algorithms for sensing planning problems motivated by these applications, and the design of robotic monitoring systems developed for two real-world applications.

In the first part, I will present the design of an autonomous robotic system developed for monitoring invasive fish in lakes. In the second part, we will focus on the algorithmic aspects of the art gallery problem, a classical camera placement problem, under constraints motivated by surveillance and visual monitoring. The standard formulation does not take into account self-occlusions of an object-of-interest within the environment. We will formulate the art gallery problem to guarantee that despite self-occlusions, any convex object present anywhere in the environment will be seen from all sides. I will present bounds and approximation algorithms for placing cameras under these constraints. In the third part, I will describe a robotic data collection system for precision agriculture. We will study the problem of planning energy-aware trajectories for collaborative aerial and ground robots in the context of this application. Throughout the talk, along with theoretical results, I will present experiments conducted with autonomous boats in Minnesota lakes, wheeled robots operating on frozen lakes, and an aerial robot operating over a corn plot.

Title:  Detecting Uncertainty in Spoken Dialogue

Abstract:  Sometimes, it’s not what you say, but how you say it: in everyday communication, the acoustic features of natural speech convey a layer of meaning beyond the semantic content of the words that are spoken. My research group works on developing new speech technologies that augment traditional speech recognition by analyzing the acoustics and intonation of spoken natural language. In this talk I will discuss the problem of automatically recognizing speaker affect, highlighting models for inferring a person's level of certainty. We have collected and annotated a corpus of affective "uncertain" speech; it is available for use by the research community. I will describe our novel method for eliciting and labeling uncertain speech, the results of our uncertainty classification experiments, and challenges for robust affect recognition. Detecting uncertainty has broad applications in human-computer dialogue systems. We are also applying this work to the design of intelligent listening tools for promoting collaboration in human-human dialogue.

Saturday Physics Series, "Knots and Physics"
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The Saturday Physics Series proudly presents "Knots and Physics" by Professor Ivan Smalyukh on Saturday, March 15th at 2 p.m. in Duane G1B30. "Since Lord Kelvin’s early models of atoms, the idea of tying a physical field into a knot has long fascinated scientists, but is a much more subtle affair than tying one’s shoelaces. The entire space-filling field, such as electric or magnetic field, has to conform to the knot. Following nearly two centuries of speculation on how knotted physical fields might behave, technological advances are finally enabling the pursuit of knotted structures in the laboratory. This lecture will discuss realization of knots in molecular alignment fields of liquid crystals, unusual materials that everybody knows for their use in information displays. Maybe surprisingly, but knotted fields in liquid crystals could lead to technological advances enabling fabrication of artificial composite materials with entirely new unusual properties and many practical applications in consumer devices. Although scientific challenges ahead are likely to be knotty, the prospects of realizing such materials with knotted structures and unusual properties are enticing indeed."

Placebo-Induced Changes In the Neurological Pain Signature Are Dissociable From Expectancies

Many types of placebo responses—even those that depend on conditioning—appear to be mediated by expectations that are strengthened during learning. However, several recent studies suggest that placebo effects may occur even when participants are aware they are receiving placebo. To address the question of whether conditioned placebo responses can persist in the absence of expectancy, we studied the effects of LONG (4 days) vs. SHORT (1 day) placebo conditioning on pain before and after a demonstration that convincingly revealed to participants they had never received an active drug (placebo reveal). In the LONG conditioning group only, placebo analgesia persists after the placebo-reveal in two independent samples – one collected behaviorally and one collected in the fMRI machine. In the fMRI sample, we focused on responses in the Neurological Pain Signature (NPS, Wager et al. 2013), an fMRI-based activity pattern that is sensitive (90+%) and specific in discriminating the intensity of thermal pain within individual participants. Prior to the reveal, neither SHORT nor LONG groups showed a placebo difference in NPS responses during pain. Following the reveal, NPS responses were reduced by placebo [C > P] in the LONG group, in spite of almost complete reversal of expectancies, whereas the SHORT group showed an increase in NPS pattern expression [P > C]. These findings suggest that conditioned placebo analgesia, once learned, can persist independent of expectations, and furthermore that prior conditioning experience is crucial in shaping pain-related fMRI responses.

Title: Goal-Driven Cognition in the Brain: A Computational Framework

Abstract:

Current theoretical and computational models of dopamine-based reinforcement learning are largely rooted in the classical behaviorist tradition, and envision the organism as a passive recipient of rewards and punishments, with resulting behavior that essentially just reflects the sum of this reinforcement history.  This framework is missing some fundamental features of the affective nervous system, most importantly, the central role of goals in driving and organizing behavior.  Furthermore, we hypothesize that goal-driven cognition is organized into two discrete phases: goal selection and goal engaged, which each have a substantially different effective value function. This dichotomy can potentially explain a wide range of phenomena, including a central role in many of the major clinical disorders, such as depression, OCD, ADHD, and PTSD.  Explicit computational models of the goal-driven dynamics of relevant neural systems throughout the limbic system and frontal cortex / basal ganglia circuits will be presented.

Refreshments will be served

"Motion Planning for Real World Robots"

Abstract:
Motion planning -- the problem of computing physical actions to complete a specified task -- has inspired some of the most theoretically rigorous and beautiful results in robotics research. But as robots proliferate in real-world applications like household service, driverless cars, warehouse automation, minimally-invasive surgery, search-and-rescue, and unmanned aerial vehicles, the classical theory appears to have fallen behind the pace of practice. At odds with the "clean" assumptions of theory, the reality is that robots must handle large amounts of noisy sensor data, uncertainty, underspecified models, nonlinear and hysteretic dynamic effects, exotic objective functions and constraints, and real-time demands. This talk will describe efforts to bring theory up to speed, in the context of three projects: 1) ladder climbing humanoids in the DARPA Robotics Challenge; 2) intelligent user interfaces for human-operated robots; and 3) navigation amongst many moving obstacles. I will present new planning algorithms and architectures whose performance is backed both by theoretical guarantees and empirical evaluation.

Bio:
Kris Hauser received his PhD in Computer Science from Stanford University in 2008, bachelor's degrees in Computer Science and Mathematics from UC Berkeley in 2003, and worked as a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley’s Automation Lab. He has held his current position as Assistant Professor in Indiana University's School of Informatics and Computing since 2009, where he directs the Intelligent Motion Lab. He is a recipient of a Stanford Graduate Fellowship, Siebel Scholar Fellowship, and the NSF CAREER award. Research interests include robot motion planning and control, semiautonomous robots, and integrating perception and planning. Past applications of this research have included automated vehicle collision avoidance, robotic manipulation, robot-assisted medicine, and legged locomotion.

Learning and Memory Without a Brain

Most assume that learning and memory is the province of the brain. From this perspective, the spinal cord is viewed as a relatively hard-wired system that functions to relay impulses to and from the brain. Our research suggests an alternative view - that neurons within the spinal cord are sensitive to environmental relations and that experience can bring about a lasting change in how it functions. Cellular mechanisms implicated in brain-mediated learning and memory are found within the spinal cord and can influence how pain and motor pathways operate. Unpredictable/uncontrollable stimulation inhibits this learning, enhances responsiveness to mildly noxious stimuli, and disrupts recovery after spinal injury. Conversely, predictable/controllable stimulation fosters learning and counters the sensitization of pain circuits. The beneficial effects of training have been linked to the release of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). The adverse effect of unpredictable/uncontrollable stimulation depends upon a cytokine, tumor necrosis factor (TNF).

Visiting Artist Lecture: Natalie Jeremijenko

"Natalie Jeremijenko is an artist and engineer whose background includes studies in biochemistry, physics, neuroscience and precision engineering."
Event Image Visiting Artist: Natalie Jeremijenko
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Much of Jeremijenko’s work reimagines environmentalism as a kind of open-ended game. She likes to frame ecological arguments not in the common conservationist language of interdiction — consume less, reduce your food miles, lose those incandescent bulbs — but rather as overtures to more engaged and imaginative participation. “A lot of my work concerns a crisis of agency — what can we do?” she says. Her art, which has appeared at the Museum of Modern Art, two Whitney Biennials, the Guggenheim and her New York gallery, Postmasters, can take the shape of fanciful provocations, prototypes for functioning systems or, as often as not, both. The idea, she says, is to design interfaces or write scripts that will “facilitate interactions between humans and nonhumans.” She is currently associate professor in the Visual Art Department, NYU and affiliated with the Computer Science Dept and Environmental Studies program. Jeremijenko is also a visiting professor at Royal College of Art, in London and an artist not-in-residence at the Institute for the Future. Palo Alto. Her degrees are in biochemistry, engineering, neuroscience and History and Philosophy of Science. In 2010 Neuberger Museum produced a retrospective exhibition surveying recent work, entitled Connected Environments; in addition to a solo exhibition entitled X in November, 2010 at the University of Technology Sydney. Other recent exhibitions include: Alter Nature: Designing Nature – Designing Human Life – Owning Life at Z33 in Hasselt; EXPOSED Voyeurism, Surveillance, and the Camera Since 187 at SFMOMA/TATE Modern; Certified Copy at the VERBEKE FOUNDATION; Eat Me! at Postmasters Gallery, New York and “(Re)designing Nature.(Re)designing Nature @ Kuenstlerhaus Vienna in addition to the Mortality exhibition at Australian Center for Contemporary Art.

We Are The Giant Screening
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

We Are the Giants is intensely moving account of the Arab Spring that focuses on the stories of prominent revolutionaries across three different countries: there are sisters Maryam and Zainab AlKhawaja, who join their human activist father Abdulhadi AlKhawaja to fight against the dictatorship of the Al Khalifa family in Bahrain by utilizing pacifist methods. There is Osama Ben-Sadik, a Libyan man and Virginia-resident whose son, American-born Muhannad, leaves behind his life in the United States to join in the fight against Muammar Gaddafi.
Then, in Syria we meet Motaz Murrad and Ghassan Yazzin, leaders of peace movements, both of them convinced that non-violent protests could inspire reform in the Assad regime. We Are the Giants intercuts the testimony of these revolutionaries with ample footage of protestors taking to the streets, information relayed through in-the-moment tweets (an appropriate flourish for covering a movement so aided by social media). The grainy footage, much of it caught in secret, contains unflinching displays of chilling violence as each dictator's forces attempt to squash the uprisings: bodies reduced to mannequins of ash in Libya, a missile streaking down from the sky to land on and decimating an entire neighborhood in Syria, a wounded protestor begging riot police for help only to be blown away at point-blank range by a shotgun. Some may argue that the inclusion of such footage has gratuitous overtones, but when viewed in context it registers as essential to understanding the peril that these people face on a daily basis.

Event Image Field Experiments: Constructing a New National Emergency Management Field in China
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

At this CAS Luncheon Series event, Wee Kiat Lim, PhD Candidate in the Department of Sociology, will discuss his field work on emergency management systems in China. Using a mixed-method approach that involves interviews, participant observation, and archival review, he traces the genesis of the Chinese emergency management organizational field created after the 2003 SARS outbreak. His five-month fieldwork in Beijing was conducted over the political leadership transition in late 2012. His research identifies the provisional successes and failures that define the new field, especially ideas about risk and governance—indigenous and heavily adapted from afar—that have shaped China’s legal and policy landscape on natural disasters over the last decade. Lunch will be provided.
Event Image Kazakhstan Joins the World
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

This Luncheon Series talk will be presented by Jerry Peterson, Professor, Department of Physics and International Affairs. When The Republic of Kazakhstan became independent of the Soviet Union at the end of 1991, this vast land had very little connection with the rest of the world. Today, the streets of Almaty, the principal city, are clogged with expensive imported cars. Much of this prosperity has come from the exploitation of Kazakhstan’s vast natural resources, and a strong industry of processing these materials. Kazakhstan ranks 11th in the world in oil reserves, and first in uranium. The political system, a nominal democracy, has evolved more slowly, with the original Communist Party boss of the Kazakh SSR still serving as President. Prosperity seems to have brought harmony, but Kazakhstan sits, largely empty, in an ‘interesting’ part of the world. Peterson will review things in Kazakhstan as he has seen them in my many visits over twenty years as a research collaborator, co-investigator for funded research, and instructor. Lunch will be provided.

Event Image Eco-modernism
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Eco-modernism: The New Environmental Politics for the 21st Century.

Contemporary environmentalism, in its failure to evolve, has become an obstacle to addressing the most serious environmental challenges, a pair of thinkers who will appear at CU-Boulder contends.

A political movement founded on shrinking the human footprint is doomed to fail in a world of 7 billion going on 10 billion souls seeking to live energy-rich modern lives, contend Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger. 

The environmental movement needs to rethink its traditional embrace of constraint and develop a new paradigm for the 21st century, they say.

Nordhaus and Shellenberger will make this case in a public lecture on Thursday, March 20, at 6:30 p.m. in Eaton Humanities room 1B50.

They appear at the invitation of Steven Hayward, the inaugural Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Nordhaus and Shellenberger are the founders of The Breakthrough Institute (www.thebreakthrough.org), a center-left think tank based in Oakland, Calif., and authors of Break Through: Why We Can’t Leave Saving the Planet to Environmentalists.  

Their articles have appeared in Time, The New Republic, The Atlantic and other publications. They recently appeared in “Pandora’s Promise,” a documentary by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Robert Stone that argues that environmentalists should support nuclear power as a leading option to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.

Characterizing Functional Specialization In the Brain Using Large-Scale Classification of fMRI Data

Large scale data mining of neuroimaging data promises to further our understanding of functional specialization in the brain. Most meta-analysis to this end have focused on characterizing cognitive functions based on brain activity. An unexplored aspect is the reverse: which cognitive functions characterize different regions of the brain? We used machine-learning classification to tackle this problem as these algorithms excel in learning which features (i.e. cognitive functions) can be used to differentiate classes (i.e. brain regions). Using the Neurosynth database, we classified which regions fMRI studies activate based on their associated cognitive functions. We then characterized regions based on which functions were most useful in distinguishing them from one another. Across the brain, classifiers trained on terms performed substantially better than chance. Normalized feature importances revealed that certain topics were particularly important specific regions (e.g. visual topic was most useful for classifying visual cortex). Our analysis suggests that there is substantial differentiating information between regions in Neurosynth. Classification can be a useful tool for characterizing brain regions based on cognitive function in a data-drive manner. This method is consistent with existing neuroscientific knowledge but has the ability to reveal novel relationships between brain topography and cognition.

In 1947, a bedouin boy accidentally discovered ancient scrolls dating to about the time of Jesus in cave on the NW shore of the Dead Sea. The remains of over nine hundred different were eventually found in eleven caves in the vicinity, which have come to be called the Dead Sea Scrolls. This slide-illustrated lecture focuses on the archaeology of Qumran, which was excavated by Roland de Vaux in the 1950's, and the connection between the site and the scrolls from the cave.

As the size of computer logic gates and memory elements approaches the atomic scale, we are forced to deal with the constraints imposed by the laws of quantum mechanics. However, we now also know that a computer based on quantum mechanics could solve certain problems that are intractable on conventional computers. Interestingly, if this device could be made on a large scale it would have the same characteristics as Erwin Schrödinger’s famous 1935 hypothetical cat that could be both dead and alive at the same time. Dr. Wineland will discuss how a quantum computer might be realized with a collection of atomic ions.

Event Image BE Seminar: Quantum dots and liquid crystals: applications in solar concentrators
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Controlling the dispersion and assembly of interacting nano-particles is an important goal in materials science as we aim to develop organized NP lattices for a variety of materials applications. Liquid crystal materials can be used to both organize quantum dots and to control and direct their emission. Luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) have been widely investigated due to their potential in dramatically decreasing the cost of collecting solar energy and recently we have investigated liquid crystal/QD hybrid materials as an interesting model system for the design of solar concentrators. In this talk I will discuss recent results from our group in QD dispersion and assembly using liquid crystals as an active medium to form hybrid solid state/liquid crystal materials, recent progress in QD functionalization with mesogenic ligands and device applications using these materials. Our group uses fluorescence and polarized microscopy, photoluminescence confocal microscopy and time resolved spectroscopy to look at the emission of QDs in the nematic, and cholesterol phases. Synchrotron x-ray diffraction allows further investigation of the hybrid materials’ structure, probing QD organization within the liquid crystal.

Event Image BE Seminar: Enhancing the Study of Renewable Energy Through Communication Scholarship
12:30 PM - 2:30 PM

In 2012, the Department of Communication at the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU-Boulder) was presented with the opportunity to directly contribute to the work of the Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI), a partnership between CU-Boulder and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). RASEI is an internationally-known and respected site of research into renewable energy science, technology, economics, social issues, and education. Within this context, a study was commissioned by the communication department to identify distinctive contributions that communication scholars can make to the study of topics and issues associated with renewable and alternative energy. As the principal investigator for this study, I employed a broad survey approach using selected literature in renewable energy and communication studies. This work was further informed by autoethnographic insights I gained through my twenty-year career in technical communication at NREL. I suggest that significant contributions can be made by scholars interrogating selected points of nexus between the fields of communication studies and renewable energy that offer the potential for particularly meaningful interactions. Specifically, communication scholars can enhance renewable energy studies by • exploring scientific and technical knowledge creation within this research setting using theories of constitutive communication; • probing boundaries among and within scientific, technical, and nontechnical fields to seek definitional understanding of science and non-science and how arguments translate across fields to influence knowledge and behavior; • and by employing critical theory in studying the interplay of power and participation within renewable energy and particularly in areas of behavioral change and policy setting. A formal field of “energy communication” does not exist at present, nor is there a significant body of work in this area; so I further suggest that scholars investigating these areas can come from existing academic specialties such as the rhetoric of science and technology, critical theory, and organizational communication, particularly those who have worked with high-technology organizational cultures and who are highly motivated to become engaged in the complex and vital world of renewable energy.

One Step Behind Mandela: Race, Reconciliation, and the New South Africa
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

“One Step Behind Mandela: Race, Reconciliation, and the New South Africa”

Thursday 3rd April at 5pm, British and Irish Studies Room, 5th floor of Norlin Library

 

Please join us for an evening with Rory Steyn, Nelson Mandela’s former head of presidential security.  Steyn was appointed by the South African Police as Team Leader of the President’s personal protection detail and served Mandela for his entire presidency, later writing about his experiences in the book One Step Behind Mandela, the title of his lecture here at CU.

 

In his talk (followed by a question/answer session), Steyn will speak about Mandela’s life and presidential philosophy, as well as the challenges that the New South Africa faces in confronting its racially segregated past.  South Africa is one of the world’s nations at the forefront – and with the greatest experience – of reconciliation and rebuilding : its Truth and Reconciliation Commission (1995-8) has provided a model oft-copied by other countries seeking to work through their difficult pasts.  Yet this process, of course, has been complex and often problematic.

 

Please join us for this extraordinary event that will serve to reveal much about one of the most celebrated figures in recent history, and illuminate the trials and tribulations of reconciliation.

 _______________________________________________________________________________________________

This event would not have been possible without a tremendous amount of support from a variety of departments and centers here on campus.  They include the Center for Western Civilization, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement and the President’s Faculty Diversity Fund, the Global Studies Residential Advisory Program, as well as the Departments of History, Philosophy, Anthropology, Sociology, Geography, and the Arts and Sciences Fund for Excellence.

Title:  Emotion form and function

Abstract:  Facial expressions are instrumental in regulating social interactions, but their specific forms may have originated in a less appreciated function in modifying perception. I will present evidence that 1) rather than distinct basic types, emotional expression appearance reflects oppositions in global form 2) the origin of these oppositions lies in a primitive sensory regulatory function for interactions with the physical environment and 3) that these sensory regulatory functions have been behaviorally and neurally co-opted for the purposes of social regulation, such as the role of disgust in moral judgment.  This program of research suggests that complex socio-emotional processes may arise in part from primitive sensory regulatory functions.

I will discuss how time and frequency are currently defined and how these definitions have evolved from antiquity to the present. The present definitions of time and frequency are based on a combination of data from atomic clocks and astronomical observations, and I will describe how the differences between these two data sets are reconciled and how the definitions might be modified in the future."

Title:
Passion without understanding

Abstract:  People often have strong attitudes about topics they don't understand very well, like complex public policies and controversial scientific issues. I will discuss two cognitive phenomena that probably play a role: First, people tend to overestimate their understanding of complex mechanisms, a phenomenon called the "illusion of understanding." Second, people's predictions are based on mental models that are often wrong, resulting in flawed risk perceptions.

Based on Ovid’s transformation myths, 10 actors mix ancient stories of pathos and tragedy with contemporary language and humor. Encapsulated by the story of Midas, whose gift from the gods becomes a terrible curse, the tales flow one into another creating a theatrical event that is as extraordinarily moving as it is beautiful to behold. Performedin and around a large pool, these heartbreaking, comical and often erotic stories are told through acts of physical prowess and stunning theatricality.

Transpartisan Leadership I
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Presented by the Mediators Foundation, this one day workshop is co-hosted by The Newton Chair in Leadership and the Presidents Leadership Class at CU, Boulder.

The Agenda

Morning: The faculty will share what they have learned from the many successful initiatives they have led or are currently implementing to bridge partisan divides. Based on their insights, participants will re-draw the “left-to-right” political map.  

Afternoon: Each faculty member will share specific, practical skills to the Transpartisan Toolbox that are useful for advancing a specific policy issue or solve a civic problem in ways that require significant collaboration from citizens with diverse political perspectives. Participants will apply these skills to concrete challenges facing the USA.

                                                                       

The Faculty

Mark Gerzon, author, Leading Through Conflict; co-designer and head facilitator of the US House of Representatives Bipartisan Congressional Retreats and President of Mediators Foundation. 

Betsy McKinney, social entrepreneur; founder  of Founding Family, organizing women from across the political spectrum into a nationwide network for social change.

Speaker:  Michael Kane
University of North Carolina, Greensboro

Should We Always (or Ever) View Mind-Wandering as an Executive-Control Failure?

To err is human. To think is human. To err because we are not thinking about what we’re doing is exceedingly human. Mind-wandering experiences and their consequences are of growing interest to psychologists and neuroscientists, as they may provide clues into the nature and functions of consciousness; they may also be an important index of cognitive and clinically relevant individual differences. My talk will first review research on normal variation in working memory capacity suggesting that people with better executive control capabilities are less likely to mind-wander during demanding activities, both in and out of the lab. I will then consider our more recent studies of aging- and personality-related (i.e., schizotypy) differences in mind-wandering, which indicate that factors beyond executive control, such as personal goals and concerns, also contribute to attentional lapses and off-task thinking. Finally, in response to claims that mind wandering serves positive, constructive functions, and so should not always (or ever) be considered a sign of executive-control failure, I will present two lines of mind-wandering work on future-oriented thinking and creativity.

How the Founding Fathers Inspired Abraham Lincoln

In an appearance on campus, Richard Brookhiser, the author of several best-selling studies of the founding fathers, will explore the timeless ideas and principles of the true “greatest generation”—the founders—and their chief epigone, Abraham Lincoln.

Far from being an antiquated relic or mere historical curiosity, the founders’ vision of a “new order for the ages” deserves to be reinvigorated in today’s political thought as much as it did in Lincoln’s time, Brookhiser contends.

Brookhiser is the author most recently of 
Founders’ Son: A Life of Abraham Lincoln, and of eight books on revolutionary America: Founding Father, Rediscovering George WashingtonRules of Civility—the 110 Precepts That Guided Our First President in War and PeaceAlexander Hamilton, AmericanAmerica’s First Dynasty: The Adamses 1735-1918Gentleman Revolutionary: Gouverneur Morris, the Rake Who Wrote the ConstitutionWhat Would the Founders Do?

A Conversation on Technology, Diversity, Equity, and Access in Education

What does it mean to live, learn, and teach in a community of learners with varying levels of access to technology?

Join the EDS, NCTE, and School of Education faculty for a discussion on the importance of addressing technology as a tool, not a solution, in the classroom.

A short presentation will be followed by a moderated discussion on:

* Current issues for students, teachers, parents, and policy-makers around access to technology in schools

* What equity looks like when calls for 21st century skills often overlook access to technology

* What the future holds for our increasingly diverse and tech-savvy students and schools

We invite all teacher education students, those interested in education, and anyone with an interest in equity and social justice to join us!

The event will also include information about applying to and entering the School of Education's teacher education program.

Don't Believe Everything you Read: Texts, Archaeology, and the Destruction of the Greek City of Corinth in 146 BC

Generations of scholars have relied heavily on ancient literary accounts of the Roman sack of Corinth in the mid-2nd century BC to interpret archaeological remains in the city. New archaeological evidence offers numerous challenges to both ancient descriptions and modern interpretations and shows how many Corinthians dealt with the aftermath of this well-known ancient destruction. This free lecture will be held in the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History Paleontology Hall.

"Unsupervised Grammar Induction with Linguistically Expressive Grammars"

Abstract:
In recent years, there has been a lot of interest in the unsupervised induction of grammars from part-of-speech-tagged text. The two standard approaches to this task are based on unlabeled dependency grammars or probabilistic context-free grammars, and return structures that are difficult to interpret linguistically. In this talk I will propose an alternative that is based on a formalism called Combinatory Categorial Grammar (CCG). CCG is a lexicalized formalism that associates words with complex symbolic categories that capture their syntactic behavior. An unsupervised CCG induction system has to automatically identify an appropriate set of language-specific categories from raw text. It may therefore seem that using CCG needlessly complicates the already difficult task of identifying the correct grammatical structures in an unsupervised fashion. However, I will show that using CCG for unsupervised grammar induction has actually a number of advantages. First, it makes our approach more useful, since we return linguistically interpretable structures. Second, it greatly simplifies the modeling task. Although CCG is strictly more expressive than context-free grammars, I will define a non-parametric Bayesian model that is much simpler than corresponding models for context-free grammars. Finally, unlike other approaches, our grammar remains robust when parsing longer sentences, performing as well as or better than other systems.

Julia Hockenmaier is assistant professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is an NSF CAREER-award recipient. Before coming to Illinois, she was a postdoc at the University of Pennsylvania, where she was working on applying statistical parsing algorithms to protein folding. Her PhD thesis (University of Edinburgh) was a runner up for the British Computer Society Distinguished Dissertation award.

Jeannette Wing, Microsoft VP and former head of computer science at Carnegie Mellon, discusses computational thinking as a way to solve complex problems. 

“Computational thinking
is increasingly a skill used by all of us. To reading, writing and arithmetic, let’s add computational thinking to every child’s analytical ability. Computational thinking is an approach to solving problems, building systems and understanding human behavior that draws on the power and limits of computing. Computational thinking has already begun to influence many disciplines, from the sciences to the humanities, and the best is yet to come!” – Jeannette Wing

12:00 AM

This lecture will be held at 2:45 p.m. on April 18, 2014.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden will discuss America’s space program and the challenges the agency faces for the missions of tomorrow. Using a stepping stone approach that builds on the capabilities of our nation’s unique orbiting laboratory – the International Space Station – the growing abilities of commercial providers to reach space, and a new rocket and crew vehicle to travel to deep space, NASA is extending human reach into the solar system even as its amazing science missions are rewriting textbooks about our universe.

The agency currently has spacecraft speeding toward Jupiter and Pluto and roving on Mars, and is searching for planets that could potentially harbor life beyond our solar system. An unprecedented mission to capture and redirect an asteroid to an orbit near to Earth is in the planning stages, and the Space Launch System and Orion Crew Vehicle are in development to take astronauts to the asteroid and on to Mars. In a time of fiscal austerity, the agency’s strategic approach will continue to achieve the big milestones that no one else can attempt.

This lecture is now on a waitlist and registration is closed. Thank you for your interest!

Doors open at 2:30 p.m., lecture begins at 2:45 p.m.

He’s also a performing songwriter, was a longtime accompanist for Pete Seeger and recently released his first album of original songs, which was hailed as a “tasty mix of roots goulash” on Jambands, an influential music website.

Event Image CU Art Museum Announces New Director, Sandra Firmin
All Day

The CU Art Museum is very pleased to announce Sandra Firmin as the new director. Sandra Firmin will begin as director on April 21, 2014, replacing current interim director, Stephen Martonis.

Sandra Q. Firmin has been Curator of the UB Art Galleries, gallery of the University of Buffalo SUNY, since 2003. She holds a M.A. from Bard College’s Center for Curatorial Studies (2002), and was awarded a Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative Fellowship at Arcadia University Art Gallery (2003). Firmin co-curated the traveling exhibition Kim Jones: A Retrospective (with Julie Joyce). The exhibition was accompanied by the catalogue “Mudman: The Odyssey of Kim Jones” (MIT Press, 2006), co-edited with Joyce. In 2010, Firmin organized Artpark: 1974–1984, an exhibition and publication (Princeton Architectural Press, 2010) chronicling the seminal years of an innovative residency program located in Lewiston, New York, just north of Niagara Falls. At the UB Art Galleries, Firmin has established an annual residency program in which artists are presented with an empty gallery to transform over time while open to the public. These commissioned projects aim to forge meaningful interactions between artists and diverse groups of people while acknowledging a turn toward research-based site-specific approaches in contemporary art that have at their core experimentation and ephemerality. Firmin is currently co-chairing (with Julian Cox) the Association of Art Museum Curators’ annual conference, which will be held in Detroit this year, where she will be moderating a panel Urban Ecologies and Cultural Exchange.
