Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Russell Kirk: Founding Father of American Conservatism
Wed., April 1, 2015
7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Norlin Library, British Studies Room, 5th floor
University of Colorado Boulder

Bradley J. Birzer, Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy, will give a talk on Russell Amos Kirk (1918-1994). Kirk is widely recognized as the founder of post-WWII American conservatism.  An eccentric in personality and armed with a razor-sharp intellect and pen, Kirk helped radically transform American political culture in the 1950s and 1960.  Yet, contrary to many images associated with modern conservatism, Kirk sought what was humane, tasteful, literary, and cultured.  This talk will explore his personality as well as his astonishing literary and historical output.

This talk is free and open to the public.

Event Image LASP Public Lecture—LASP and the ISS: Future Measurements of Solar Irradiance and Climate Data
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

LASP has a long history of measuring the Sun’s radiant energy from high-altitude balloons, sounding rockets, and from satellite platforms in order to understand its influences on the terrestrial environment. LASP’s research efforts in Sun-Earth connections are end-to-end, from instrument development, build, calibration, and characterization, to mission operations, science data processing, analysis, and interpretation. In 2017, we will expand our knowledge of the Sun’s output and its contributions in the ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum from a new frontier—the International Space Station (ISS). In this April 1st talk, LASP atmospheric research scientist, Odele Coddington, will discuss how solar irradiance measurements, obtained from the ISS, will give us new insight into the Sun’s variability and its effects on all Earth-processes, including climate. Along the way, she'll show some fun videos demonstrating the technical challenges that LASP engineers are meeting in order to make measurements of the Sun from the ISS.

Event Image "Everything has Changed": Gender Roles, Generational Change, and the Meaning of Work for Women in Ba
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Rachel Fleming, Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Anthropology, will present her research on working women in Bangalore. In the past three generations and especially since economic liberalization in the 1990s, the southern Indian city of Bangalore has become a global information technology center. As more women join this workforce, they are challenging established ideas about gender roles in India and redefining their relationships with family, partners, and friends. Based on ethnographic research in Bangalore, this presentation explores how different generations of women in Bangalore reflect on the changes in women's lives, finding that older women question the benefits of work and express regret that they did not work, while younger women actively critique what they see as entrenched sexism and seek to redefine gendered expectations.

Event Image Why Am I in the Writing Class? The Teachers' and Students' Messages about EFL Writing in Korea
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

In her research, Younghwa Lee, visiting scholar at CAS and Professor at Sun Moon University, explored the motivations for teachers and students in South Korea to be engaged in the writing sections of English as Foreign Language classes. Until recently, there has been scarcely any research that investigates the purposes of Korean students on EFL writing courses at university. In her research, Lee comprised questionnaire for 43 writing teachers and interviews with 8 students. Teachers felt that teaching of writing in English was essential for students who would engage in jobs related in English and for those who wished to improve their general English proficiency, as well as offering an understanding of the linguistic and cultural differences between the Korean- and English-speaking worlds. Students, on the other hand, felt that learning how to write in English more effectively and systematically was an integral part of learning a foreign language. The desire to get a job or get into university were also motivating factors. The conclusion indicates that there are some differences between the teachers' views and students' views on teaching and learning EFL writing.

CompSci Colloquium: Daniel Szafir (U. of Wisconsin-Madison)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Unlocking the Assistive Potential of Emerging Technologies

ABSTRACT: We are currently seeing an unprecedented rise in the development and deployment of novel sensing and interactive technologies, driven by advances in robotics, wearable devices, and embedded microprocessors. While these technologies hold promise for aiding users in educational, workplace, and personal settings, gaps often exist between the core functionalities provided by new innovations and higher level user goals. Szafir seeks to understand and bridge these gaps by developing human-centered systems and techniques that blend computer science, robotics, engineering, and design to unlock the true assistive potential of emerging technologies. In this talk, he will outline three core aspects regarding the design of effective interactive technologies: ensuring the technology is expressive in form and behavior, providing functionality that aids users in mapping abstract goals to system capabilities, and supporting adaptability to complex interactions. He will describe several formative solutions aimed at connecting users and technologies that he has developed using this approach, which he grounds in the design of flying robotic systems and wearable technologies. In the course of this work, Szafir demonstrates how the integrated hardware and software systems he has designed enhance the utility of these technologies for real-world applications in environments ranging from classrooms to the International Space Station. 

BIO: Daniel Szafir is a PhD candidate in the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory within the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He received Bachelor’s degrees in Computer Science and History at Boston College and his Master’s in Computer Science from UW–Madison. His work explores how we can leverage emerging interactive technologies, including small flying robots, wearable devices, and immersive virtual environments, to provide new forms of assistance to users in domains including collaborative work, education, and space exploration. He is a NASA National Space Technology Research Fellow and has received additional funding from Google. His work been featured in several media outlets, including New Scientist, Engadget, and Discovery News. More information can be found on his website: http://cs.wisc.edu/~dszafir

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Title:
Contextuality and Random Variables from Quantum Mechanics to Psychology

Abstract: Probabilistic contextuality is an abstract system-theoretic notion with applications ranging from behavioral and social systems to quantum theory (where it includes, as a special case, nonlocality). We view it as a foundational concept of probability theory because contextuality is about identity of random variables. Contextuality-by-Default means that the identity of a random variable a priori  differs from one context to another, a context being defined by conditions under which it is recorded, in particular, by other random variables recorded together with it. Two random variables, R in context c and R’ in context c’ , if they are identically distributed, can sometimes be coupled (imposed a joint distribution on) so that their values differ with probability zero. If such a coupling does not exist, we say that the system involving R, R’, c, c’  (and, possibly, many other random variables in various contexts) is contextual. More generally, if R in context c and R’ in context c’ may be differently distributed, it is possible that they can be coupled so that the probability with which their values differ has the minimal value allowed by the difference in their distributions; if such a coupling does not exist, we say that the system involving R, R’, c, c’ is contextual. There are numerous mathematical tests (necessary conditions, and sometimes criteria) for determining whether a system is contextual. One of several possible measures of contextuality is based on the idea of computing the minimal probability with which R in context c may be unequal to R’ in context c’ when they are coupled.

Acknowledgments: The work has been supported by NSF grant SES-1155956 and AFOSR grant FA9550-14-1-0318. The presentation is based on joint work with Janne Kujala, with thanks to Jan-Åke Larsson, Acacio de Barros, and Gary Oas.

MFA
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

While the four MFA students, graduating either from the Film Studies Program or Interdisciplinary Media Art Practices (IMAP), developed their thesis work separately, narratives that teeter on the cusp of life lived (or dreamt) and fiction, connect them. The tone of their work in photography, film, and virtual reality ranges widely from somber black-and-white photographs to aesthetics of early Internet art with sparkles, synthesizer music, and LSD trails. In Melanie Clemmons’ programming world, an Oculus Rift headset used for gaming, is a ticket into the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea where one sees unicorns and witnesses the mystical power of its leaders to control the weather. Usama Alshaibi’s dreamlike film is set in Bagdad, Iowa, a nonexistent place where an unmoored, grieving man, on a quest to bury his brother, seems to barely exists in transitional spaces of hotel rooms and highways. The photographs of Taylor McIntosh document the open-air cremation rituals in Crestone, Colorado, where Buddhist, Hindus, Catholics, cowboys and other town citizens come together for a resident’s end of life passage. Shokoofeh Z. Dezfuli’s work delves into the reality of immigrants whose fractured national identities exist in limbo between countries with strongly prescribed customs and those with more individualistic cultures. Her work is particularly concerned with gender discrimination and violence experienced by women in their home and adopted countries. In all these works, a longing for home and self-knowledge, played out through a lifetime of physical, mental, and spiritual fantasies and rituals, comes to pass.

Event Image Laniakea: Our Home Supercluster of Galaxies
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Galaxies gather together in filaments and clumps that constitute the "cosmic web". The denser regions are called superclusters. But with the connectedness of the filamentary structure, where does one supercluster end and another begin? Information on the motions of galaxies provides an answer. Galaxies have motions toward local basins of gravitational attraction. By analogy with terrestrial watersheds, there are boundaries between adjacent basins marked by the directions of flows. A sufficiently extensive mapping of galaxy motions now reveals the full extent of the basin of attraction that includes the Milky Way. The name Laniakea Supercluster has been given to this region with mass 100 quadrillion suns within 100,000 galaxies.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Title: Genetic Architecture and Causal Inference for Complex Traits via Large Scale Meta-analyses

Abstract: Next generation sequencing and array-genotyping technologies have revolutionized the study of complex human diseases. It has become possible to cost-effectively genotype rare and low frequency variants in large scale population-based studies. One focus of the current gene mapping efforts is to aggregate multiple studies, enlarge sample sizes, and unveil the impact of rare coding variants for complex human diseases. In this talk, we will first discuss methods that enable the effective integration of large scale datasets via meta-analyses of gene-level association tests. Applying these methods, we study the impact of rare coding variants in datasets with exome-array genotypes from the Global Lipids Genetics Consortium and from the GWAS and Sequencing Consortium of Alcohol and Nicotine Use. Using known and novel discoveries of these cohorts, we perform a rigorous multivariate Mendelian randomization and evaluate the causal effects of potential risk factors for heart attacks.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

We know Shakespeare wrote a play called Cardenio, and we know that his company performed it; we just don’t know what happened to the play. People have been searching for traces of this lost play for hundreds of years, but nobody really knows for sure what it really might have looked like. That’s all about to change. As a class, we will use some of the evidence that we do have about Cardenio and knowledge about how Shakespeare wrote characters and plot to recreate the lost play. This is a class where you will be working on your feet, creating the scenes and performing the characters that will make up our play. At the end of the class, you will perform our version of Cardenio, complete with costumes and props designed by the class.

Salary Negotiation Strategies for Women
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Women make up more than half the labor force, are as qualified as men, and yet, earn roughly 80 cents to every dollar a man makes.  Multiple studies have shown that by failing to negotiate salary and pursue promotions, it can cost women more than an estimated half a million dollars in earnings over the course of their career.  Experts debate the reasons for these inequities. It is up to each woman to achieve pay equity on her own. No law or employer is going to do it for her. The reluctance of women to advocate for themselves or concerns about how they will be perceived by an employer is often the difference between climbing the corporate ladder and not climbing it at all.

Whether you are a female student looking for your first job or an alumna who is looking to move up in your career, this panel discussion is for you!  Come hear from female panelists with extensive professional experience in HR, Talent Acquisition, and/or managers with hiring authority speak about strategies and techniques to successfully negotiate salary as a woman.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Colorado Communities Free Scanning Days
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The University of Colorado Boulder is celebrating Colorado history with a three-day scanning event for the Colorado Communities historical website and free consultations with experts on family history and genealogy. The event is part of the Colorado Communities initiative, which is creating a website to document Colorado local history over the last century through photos, documents and other artifacts contributed by citizens. Hosted by the University Libraries and CU Heritage Center, the free community scanning will be at the University Memorial Center Dalton Trumbo Fountain Court April 7 through April 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. The website will feature primary sources that document the people, places and events that not only made the headlines, but also quietly shaped the lives of everyday citizens. It also will offer interactive timelines and maps allowing users to explore the collection as well as essays that place the materials in historical context. This digital collection will be of particular interest to students, educators, researchers, genealogists and others who explore various aspects of the state’s past. Community members interested in participating are encouraged to bring up to five items for scanning. Suggested materials include photographs, letters, documents, postcards, scrapbooks or other memorabilia related to Colorado history over the last century. Participants do not need to part with the originals; technicians will scan the artifacts or download digital photos on-site. Contributors will receive a copy of the digitized materials and the Colorado Communities team will keep one for inclusion in the website. The following activities also will be held in connection with the scanning event: Your Colorado Treasures Tuesday, April 7, 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Terry King, senior appraiser at Connoisseur Appraisers (http://www.connoisseurappraisers.com), will be on hand to evaluate memorabilia, portable antiques and fine art. Your Colorado Story Wednesday, April 8, 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Coloradans who don’t have pieces to digitize can still participate in the project by sharing stories about life in Colorado or family lore at an audio-video station. These digital recordings also will be included on the Colorado Communities website. Your Colorado Quest Thursday, April 9, 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jen Baldwin, genealogist and family historian (www.ancestraljourney.net), will be present to answer questions about conducting family and local history research. Parking on campus is limited. Pay parking may be available in the Euclid Avenue Autopark or along 18th Street. For more information about the scanning event contact Holley Long at holley.long@colorado.edu or 303-492-7513.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Spacial Narrative: The Challenge of Mapping Experience / Professor Anne Knowles

CU DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY
Proudly Presents

EXPLORING DIGITAL HUMANITIES
A Lecture Series on Research and Pedagogy


Anne Knowles
Department of Geography - Middlebury College


"Spacial Narrative: The Challenge of Mapping Experience"

April 9, 5 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Norlin Library, British and Irish Studies Room

Maps have become a popular medium for telling stories, whether stories of historical events in textbooks and scholarly websites or narratives of individuals’ experiences in popular books and blogs. This talk probes the conceptual limits of spatial narrative as revealed in the Holocaust Geographies project. Knowles’ intensely visual presentation will explore how modes of representation can imply, and deny, certain perspectives on the Holocaust. She will also suggest non-digital methods for improving the historical sensitivity and geographical expressiveness of spatial history.

Anne Knowles is Professor of Geography at Middlebury College, well known for her innovative work in geography. Her research has made use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in a variety of contexts ranging from mapping the Holocaust to exploring the Battle of Gettysburg to analyzing Pennsylvania’s iron industry. Her books include, most recently, Mastering Iron: The Struggle to Modernize an American Industry (University of Chicago Press, 2012) and the edited volume Placing History: How Maps, Spatial Data, and GIS are Changing Historical Scholarship (ESRI Press, 2008). In 2012, she received the Smithsonian's American Ingenuity Award for Historical Scholarship.

This event is organized by the CU Boulder History Graduate Student Association.

Event Image Third Annual Women In Leadership Development (WILD) Summit
7:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Choices. You have to make them – whether difficult or not – every day in your personal and professional lives. That’s what the Third Annual Women In Leadership (WILD) Summit is all about this year. Taking place at the Denver/Westminster Marriot on April 10th, the WILD Summit looks to bring together a broad mix of Front Range Women to promote and enable women’s leadership.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Lyrics by Tim Rice, Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Directed by Cecilia Pang

Ever since the controversial rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice was released as a concept album in 1970, it has enflamed the passions of critics and fans alike. The story of Jesus of Nazareth during his final days, from the time of his arrival in Jerusalem to his crucifixion, this high-energy, immensely popular show plunges deep into the hearts of the men and women, from Judas Iscariot to Mary Magdalene to Pontius Pilate, who played a part in one of the most momentous stories ever told.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Event Image Well-known Joycean, Brian Caraher, argues case for Thomas Moore as enlightened poet
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

This talk will explore the problematic reception and reputation of Thomas Moore in post-partition Ireland and beyond. It will consider some recent initiatives to recover and reconsider Moore and will argue a case for Moore as an enlightened, cosmopolitan poet moving well beyond the Cavalier, Neo-classical and Augustan straitjackets which have long circumscribed his work. Thomas Moore’s melodies — for the Americas as well as for Ireland — would have us imagine, perhaps even perform, a new world of cultural differences and subtly new gender politics, a world his Bermudan ‘Odes to Nea,’ his ‘Canadian Boat Song’ and his “Irish Melodies” such as ‘Come Rest in This Bosom’ powerfully project.
Event Image Shakespeare’s Lost Play (ages 12-18)
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

We know Shakespeare wrote a play called Cardenio, and we know that his company performed it; we just don’t know what happened to the play. People have been searching for traces of this lost play for hundreds of years, but nobody really knows for sure what it really might have looked like. That’s all about to change. As a class, we will use some of the evidence that we do have about Cardenio and knowledge about how Shakespeare wrote characters and plot to recreate the lost play. This is a class where you will be working on your feet, creating the scenes and performing the characters that will make up our play. At the end of the class, you will perform our version of Cardenio, complete with costumes and props designed by the class.

Thinking like a Teacher: Getting Ready for Any Examination
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

(Held in Fleming 150)  Presenter: Dr. Peter Kratzke, Writing & Rhetoric. In a 1973 movie, The Paper Chase, the actor John Houseman characterized a law professor so memorably that the movie became a television show. At one point, Houseman’s character, Professor Kingsfield, cajoles his students, “You teach yourself the law, but I train your minds.” Kingsfield’s speech continues, but in that single moment is the key to understanding--and mastering--the dynamic relationship between teacher and student represented in tests and, more importantly to you, test-taking. In this session, we shall explore not only the practical side of your preparing for tests but reach to the core of how to think if test-taking is ever to be more than whatever variation of a cat-and-mouse guessing game.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Talk by Prof. Katherine Hayles
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Dr. Katherine Hayles (How We Became Posthuman, Writing Machines) will give "Nonconscious Cognition and Material Processes" on Wednesday, April 15 at 4:30pm in the Center for British and Irish Studies (5th floor Norlin). "Nonconscious Cognition and Material Processes" Veronica Strang, in "Fluid Consistencies: Material Relationality in Human Engagements with Water," like many of the "new materialists," emphasizes the agential properties of water in relation to human complex systems and ecologies. Strang argues that water has consistent "properties" that remain much the same across human cultures and times. By contrast, I argue that water (or any other material substance) has an infinite number of "properties" that reveal themselves through interactions with other entities. Water, for example, may appear very similar across human cultures, but at the same time would appear very differently to a salmon, a heron, a bridge, and a coral reef. To avoid confusion, I call the repertoire of (potentially infinite) characteristics of a substance its physical attributes, and the way these characteristics are revealed through interactions its material characteristics. Materiality, in this view, is inherently relational. Clarifying these matters allows distinctions to be made between entities with cognitive capabilities (which I call actors), and noncognitive entities or physical processes such as glaciers, tornadoes, and woodrot (which I call agents). Both actors and agents have agential powers, but actors have additional capabilities that agents do not. Katherine Hayles is Professor of Literature and Director of Graduate Studies at Duke University, as well as Distinguished Professor Emerita at UCLA. She is author of How We Think: Digital Media and Contemporary Technogenesis (Chicago 2012), Electronic Literature (Notre Dame 2008), My Mother Was a Computer (Chicago 2005), Writing Machines (MIT 2002), and How We Became Posthuman (Chicago 1999). Her awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, two NEH Fellowships, a Rockefeller Residential Fellowship at Bellagio, a fellowship at the National Humanities Center and two Presidential Research Fellowships from the University of California. She has received a Distinguished Scholar Award from the University of Rochester, the Medal of Honor from the University of Helsinki, and the Distinguished Scholar Award from the International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts.

Lyrics by Tim Rice, Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Directed by Cecilia Pang

Ever since the controversial rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice was released as a concept album in 1970, it has enflamed the passions of critics and fans alike. The story of Jesus of Nazareth during his final days, from the time of his arrival in Jerusalem to his crucifixion, this high-energy, immensely popular show plunges deep into the hearts of the men and women, from Judas Iscariot to Mary Magdalene to Pontius Pilate, who played a part in one of the most momentous stories ever told.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

"Seductive Subjects: The Balkan Wars and the International Rush on the Jews of Salonica"

Faculty and Graduate Student Colloquium with Sarah Stein

Thursday, April 16 @ 12:30PM - 2:00PM

Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu for location and pre-circulated reading

The governments of Spain and Portugal have recently announced their intention to grant citizenship to any Jew who can demonstrate descent from a family expelled from the Iberian Peninsula in the fifteenth century. Sephardic families in the United States, Turkey, and Israel have embraced the proposition, seeing Portuguese and Spanish citizenship as a shortcut to EU citizenship - a useful commodity regardless of whether the paper-holder intends to dwell on Iberian soil. Seemingly unbeknown to the actors involved, all are echoing a drama enacted over the course of the late-nineteenth and early twentieth-centuries, when countless Ottoman-born Jews struggled to transfigure an early modern legal status - the protégé, or protected Ottoman subject of a European power - into something approximate to citizenship. In this work-in-progress, Professor Stein traces the anxious history of Ottoman Jewish protégés, considering how, amidst the Balkan Wars and the transition of the city of Salonica from Ottoman to Greek rule of the empire, individual Sephardi women and men sought creative legal footholds in nationalizing Europe; and how the states of Europe configured extraterritorial Sephardic subjects variously, as strategic allies of neocolonial ambition, residues of a faded imperial order, menaces, symbols, and poseurs.

Professor & Maurice Amado Endowed Chair in Sephardic Studies and Vice Chair for Undergraduate Affairs of the Department of History at the University of California, LA, Sarah Abrevaya Stein received her A.B. from Brown University in 1993 and her doctorate from Stanford University in 1999. Her scholarship has ranged across the Yiddish and Ladino speaking diasporas and the British and French imperial, Russian, American, Ottoman and wider Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African settings, but is always engaged with the reasons for and manifestations of Jewish cultural diversity in the modern period. An elected member of the American Academy for Jewish Research, Stein is the author of Saharan Jews and the Fate of French Algeria (University of Chicago Press, 2014), Plumes: Ostrich Feathers, Jews, and a Lost World of Global Commerce (Yale University Press, 2008), winner of the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature, and Making Jews Modern: the Yiddish and Ladino Press in the Russian and Ottoman Empires (Indiana University Press, hardback 2004), winner of the Salo Wittmayer Baron Prize for Best First Book in Jewish Studies for 2003 and finalist for the Koret Jewish Book Award in 2004. Stein is the co-editor, with Julia Phillips Cohen, of Sephardi Lives: A Documentary History, 1700-1950 (Stanford University Press, 2014), and, with Aron Rodrigue, of A Jewish Voice from Ottoman Salonica: The Ladino Memoir of Sa’adi Besalel a-Levi (Stanford University Press, 2012).

Professor Stein's visit is sponsored by the Program in Jewish Studies, and co-sponsored by the Department of History, the Department of Religious Studies, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, the CU Mediterranean Studies Group, and the Boulder Book Store.

CompSci Colloquium: Marcelo Kallmann (UC Merced)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Modeling and Synthesis of Human-like Motions for Virtual Assistants

ABSTRACT: In this talk, Kallmann will present his group's work on immersive motion modeling and data-based motion planning for autonomous virtual human demonstrators in interactive virtual worlds. By relying on motion capture data, planning algorithms are able to synthesize locomotion and manipulation sequences that exhibit human-like characteristics. As a result, autonomous virtual humans are able to plan and execute motions that are similar to motion capture examples and that can address new constraints and parameterizations for generic training scenarios. In order to complement the approach, immersive VR interfaces are explored for interactive training and motion modeling. He will also present an overview of additional projects developed at the computer graphics group of UC Merced, including applications to physical therapy, fast path planning with clearance, and as well deformable models based on fractional derivatives. Several computer animated videos will be presented to illustrate the results. This talk will be accessible to students.

BIO: Marcelo Kallmann is a founding faculty and associate professor of computer science at the University of California, Merced. He obtained his PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), and before moving to UC Merced in 2005 he was research faculty at the University of Southern California (USC) and a scientist at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT). His areas of research include computer animation, virtual reality and humanoid motion planning. At UC Merced he established and leads the computer graphics research group (http://graphics.ucmerced.edu/). His work has been funded by several NSF awards and his work on triangulations for path planning runs inside the recently announced The Sims 4. He is currently writing a book on path planning for virtual worlds while visiting CU-Boulder until the end of April.

Public Tour of Michel Fingesten Exhibition
With Graduating Jewish Studies Major, Italian Minor Shikari Browne
Thursday, April 16 @ 4:00PM - 5:00PM
CU Art Museum


Michel Fingesten is best known as one of the most prolific and highly sought-after bookplates designers of the 20th century. Son of a Czech-Jewish father and an Italian-Jewish mother, he fled Nazi Germany in 1936 and settled in Milan, where he built a circle of patrons who commissioned and avidly collected his works. In 1940 Fingesten was confined to a Fascist internment camp in the Abruzzi, and then transferred a year later to Ferramonti-Tarsia near Cosenza, Calabria. He died shortly after the liberation of the camp by the Allies in 1943, apparently as the result of a wound infection after surgery.

Fingensten was especially popular as a creator of bookplates or ex-libris (the Latin term meaning “from the books of”), a genre that appealed to the taste of elites in the late 19th and early 20th century. While he excelled in that genre, this exhibition provides a glimpse of the wide sweep of his graphic work. This exhibit is curated by Davide Stimilli, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures, along with graduating Jewish Studies major and Italian minor Shikari Browne.

As part of her senior Capstone Project in Jewish Studies, Ms. Browne will lead a fascinating public tour of this exhibition, Thursday, April 16 @ 4:00PM - 5:00PM in the CU Art Museum.

Event Image Family Papers: A Sephardi Journey: Lecture with Sarah Stein, 2015 Sondra Bender Visiting Scholar
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join the Program in Jewish Studies for a public lecture with our annual 2015 Sondra D. Bender Visiting Scholar, Professor Sarah Stein who will be visiting CU-Boulder April 15-16, 2015. 

"Family Papers:  A Sephardi Journey through the twentieth century"
Public Lecture with Professor Sarah Stein, 2015 Sondra D. Bender Visiting Scholar

Thursday, April 16 @ 7PM

University Memorial Center, Room 235

Free and Open to the Public

Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu

 

Why does a family save its papers?  How does the instinct for preservation defy wars, fire, and genocide; migration and conversion; family feuds; even a stubborn disconnection from the past?  What do we preserve and what does it mean to those who find it?  And what is lost to those of us—the great majority in this day and age—who no longer write letters and no longer have family papers to save? "A Sephardi Journey through the Twentieth Century" meditates on these questions whilst undertaking a voyage through the intertwined histories of Sephardi Jewry and the twentieth century—a century of stunning tumult for this community.  While it tells the history of a single family, this presentation is also the history of a collection:  a reflection on how one family archive came to be built and preserved, and how it knit together a family even as the historic Sephardi heartland of southeastern Europe was unraveling.  

 

Professor & Maurice Amado Endowed Chair in Sephardic Studies and Vice Chair for Undergraduate Affairs of the Department of History, Sarah Abrevaya Stein received her A.B. from Brown University in 1993 and her doctorate from Stanford University in 1999. Her scholarship has ranged across the Yiddish and Ladino speaking diasporas and the British and French imperial, Russian, American, Ottoman and wider Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African settings, but is always engaged with the reasons for and manifestations of Jewish cultural diversity in the modern period. An elected member of the American Academy for Jewish Research, Stein is the author of Saharan Jews and the Fate of French Algeria (University of Chicago Press, 2014), Plumes: Ostrich Feathers, Jews, and a Lost World of Global Commerce (Yale University Press, 2008), winner of the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature, and Making Jews Modern: the Yiddish and Ladino Press in the Russian and Ottoman Empires (Indiana University Press, hardback 2004), winner of the Salo Wittmayer Baron Prize for Best First Book in Jewish Studies for 2003 and finalist for the Koret Jewish Book Award in 2004. Stein is the co-editor, with Julia Phillips Cohen, of Sephardi Lives: A Documentary History, 1700-1950 (Stanford University Press, 2014), and, with Aron Rodrigue, of A Jewish Voice from Ottoman Salonica: The Ladino Memoir of Sa’adi Besalel a-Levi (Stanford University Press, 2012).

Lyrics by Tim Rice, Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Directed by Cecilia Pang

Ever since the controversial rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice was released as a concept album in 1970, it has enflamed the passions of critics and fans alike. The story of Jesus of Nazareth during his final days, from the time of his arrival in Jerusalem to his crucifixion, this high-energy, immensely popular show plunges deep into the hearts of the men and women, from Judas Iscariot to Mary Magdalene to Pontius Pilate, who played a part in one of the most momentous stories ever told.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image “Mediating Asia”: 2015 CAS Annual Symposium
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Center for Asian Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder will host its fourth annual symposium entitled ‘Mediating Asia’ on April 17, 2015. The rapid rise of Asian-based media industries raises important questions about how Asian publics engage in struggles over the quality of their environment, over democracy and human rights, and over how their cultures and societies are represented to the rest of the world. In this day-long symposium we will explore these implications, and more, of an increasingly mediated Asia. The symposium will feature keynote addresses by Endy Bayuni of The Jakarta Post, and Melissa Chan of Al Jazeera America, as well as panel discussions with more than 10 scholars and journalists from CU and beyond. Topics of discussion will include “media and environmental politics,” “authoritarian states, nationalism, and the unruly media,” and “identity, culture, and branding” in the Asian context.
Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Lyrics by Tim Rice, Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Directed by Cecilia Pang

Ever since the controversial rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice was released as a concept album in 1970, it has enflamed the passions of critics and fans alike. The story of Jesus of Nazareth during his final days, from the time of his arrival in Jerusalem to his crucifixion, this high-energy, immensely popular show plunges deep into the hearts of the men and women, from Judas Iscariot to Mary Magdalene to Pontius Pilate, who played a part in one of the most momentous stories ever told.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

As part of the Week of Jewish Philosophy "Religion and the Academy," DU's Center for Judaic Studies and CU-Boulder's Program in Jewish Studies are excited to welcome visiting scholar Randi Rashkover, Associate Professor of Religious Studies and Judaic Studies at George Mason University, for a special faculty and graduate student colloquium.

”Rosenzweig and the ‘Academy of Jewish Science’: Reevaluating the Relation between Jewish Communal Learning, the University, and the Spirit of Scientific Inquiry"

Faculty and Graduate Colloquium with Randi Rashkover

Monday, April 20 @ 12:00PM - 2:00PM

Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu for location and pre-circulated reading.

The contributions of Franz Rosenzweig, one of the twentieth century's leading theologians, to Jewish education are widely known and have inspired dramatic changes in contemporary religious practice. Less acknowledged and examined is the connection between Rosenzweig's Jewish educational aims and his commitment to the precursor of modern Jewish studies, the Wissenschaft des Judentums or Science of Judaism. This colloquium will explore Rosenzweig's novel approach to the relationship between religious learning and scientific inquiry, between the traditional house of study and the modern university, using the work of this influential German-Jewish thinker to wrestle with broader questions about religion and the academy, the nature of Jewish learning, and the promises and perils of scientific study.

Dr. Randi Rashkover is associate professor of Religious Studies and director of the Judaic Studies Program at George Mason University. She is the author of Revelation and Theopolitics: Barth, Rosenzweig and the Politics of Praise (T&T Clark, 2005) and editor of Liturgy Time and the Politics of Redemption  (Wm.B. Eerdmans, 2006) and Tradition in the Public Square: A Novak Reader (Wm. B. Eerdmans, 2007). Her areas of expertise include Jewish philosophy, Jewish political thought, Jewish-Christian and Jewish-Islamic relations and women in Judaism. She has published widely in a range of leading journals including, The Journal of Jewish Thought and Philosophy, Jewish Studies Quarterly, Modern Theology, Philosophy Today and has been contributing editor of the journal Cross Currents for over ten years. Dr. Rashkover lectures at universities, synagogues and churches throughout the U.S., the U.K. and Canada.

Professor Rashkover's colloquium at CU-Boulder is one event in a series held for this year's Week of Jewish Philosophy. For a full schedule of events, visit DU's Center for Judaic Studies' website.

The Week of Jewish Philosophy is hosted by DU's Center for Judaic Studies, and co-sponsored by CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies, DU's Department of Philosophy, the Joint Doctoral Program in the Study of Religion (DU and Iliff), and with special funding from the American Academy for Jewish Research.

Dissecting the Neural Circuits that Mediate Motivated Behavior

In order to survive and effectively navigate an ever-changing and unpredictable environment, organisms must readily adapt their behavior to seek out needed resources, while simultaneously avoiding life-threatening situations.  These opposing processes are controlled by neural circuitry that is readily engaged by both environmental and physiological factors to promote behavioral output.   The work of my lab studies the precise neural circuits that control both reward and aversive-related behavioral responses.  By utilizing optogenetic and other circuit mapping tools, we aim to delineate the precise functional synaptic connections between molecularly distinct neuronal populations that are critical for the generation of these critical behavioral states.  A holistic understanding of the interconnected neural circuit elements that mediate diverse motivational behaviors will likely provide important insight into a variety of complex neurological and neuropsychiatric illnesses such as drug and alcohol addiction, anxiety, depression, and eating disorders.

Event Image Shakespeare’s Lost Play (ages 12-18)
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

We know Shakespeare wrote a play called Cardenio, and we know that his company performed it; we just don’t know what happened to the play. People have been searching for traces of this lost play for hundreds of years, but nobody really knows for sure what it really might have looked like. That’s all about to change. As a class, we will use some of the evidence that we do have about Cardenio and knowledge about how Shakespeare wrote characters and plot to recreate the lost play. This is a class where you will be working on your feet, creating the scenes and performing the characters that will make up our play. At the end of the class, you will perform our version of Cardenio, complete with costumes and props designed by the class.

Teachers: Kaily Anderson and Sarah Johnson

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission is designed to explore Mars’ upper atmosphere and its interactions with the Sun and solar wind. The goal of MAVEN is to understand the processes controlling the structure and composition of the upper atmosphere and ionosphere of Mars, to determine the escape rate of gas to space today, and to understand the processes controlling it. Data obtained from MAVEN will allow scientists to extrapolate backwards in time and determine the total atmospheric loss to space throughout Martian history. MAVEN has been in orbit around Mars since September 21, 2014, and is about five months into its one-Earth-year primary mission. All of the instruments are collecting data as intended, and we are beginning to see the full range of processes that are operating at Mars; this includes some unanticipated results. During this presentation, MAVEN principal investigator and CU-Boulder Professor, Dr. Bruce Jakosky, will discuss the mission and its early science results.

Event Image Why Am I in the Writing Class? The Teachers' and Students' Messages about EFL Writing in Korea
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

In her research, Younghwa Lee, visiting scholar at CAS and Professor at Sun Moon University, explored the motivations for teachers and students in South Korea to be engaged in the writing sections of English as Foreign Language classes. Until recently, there has been scarcely any research that investigates the purposes of Korean students on EFL writing courses at university. In her research, Lee comprised questionnaire for 43 writing teachers and interviews with 8 students. Teachers felt that teaching of writing in English was essential for students who would engage in jobs related in English and for those who wished to improve their general English proficiency, as well as offering an understanding of the linguistic and cultural differences between the Korean- and English-speaking worlds. Students, on the other hand, felt that learning how to write in English more effectively and systematically was an integral part of learning a foreign language. The desire to get a job or get into university were also motivating factors. The conclusion indicates that there are some differences between the teachers' views and students' views on teaching and learning EFL writing.

3:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Jim Groom, Director of Teaching and Learning Technologies, University of Mary Washington, will be visiting to speak for ASSETT's 3rd annual Teaching with Technology Symposium on April 23, Flatirons Room, C4C at 3 p.m. This presentation will explore the importance of providing students, faculty and staff with an innovative, web-based platform for owning, managing and migrating the digital work they create over the course of their academic careers. UMW Domains recognizes and codifies the importance of digital agency for each and every learner on campus, and provides the means of enabling this for each individual at scale. This takes more than a learning system or publishing platform to be central to one's own critique and creation of the digital world and should be intentionally designed and cultivated. The platform undergirding the pioneering work of Domain of One's Own at UMW is the open web and it provides the backbone for a broader, curricular-wide push for cross-disciplinary digital fluency. Additionally, Jim will be available for a Post Symposium Discussion, April 24th, 9:30 – 11 a.m., Norlin E113. Please RSVP here: http://assett.colorado.edu/2015twtsymposium/

CompSci Colloquium: Rich Caruana (Microsoft Research)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Intelligible Machine Learning Models for Healthcare

ABSTRACT: In machine learning, often a tradeoff must be made between accuracy and intelligibility: the most accurate models usually are not very intelligible (e.g., random forests, boosted trees, and neural nets), and the most intelligible models usually are less accurate (e.g., linear or logistic regression). This tradeoff often limits the accuracy of models that can be applied in mission-critical applications such as healthcare where being able to understand, validate, edit, and trust a learned model is important. Caruana's team has developed a learning method based on generalized additive models (GAMs) that is often as accurate as full complexity models, but remains as intelligible as linear/logistic regression models. In the talk, he will present two case studies where these high-performance generalized additive models (GA2Ms) are applied to healthcare problems yielding intelligible models with state-of-the-art accuracy. In the pneumonia risk prediction case study, the intelligible model uncovers surprising patterns in the data that previously had prevented complex learned models from going to clinical trial, but because it is intelligible and modular allows these patterns to easily be recognized and removed. In the 30-day hospital readmission case study, he shows that the same methods scale to large datasets containing hundreds of thousands of patients and thousands of attributes while remaining intelligible and providing accuracy comparable to the best (unintelligible) machine learning methods.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Presented by: Professor James Thompson
Location: Duane Physical Laboratories, Room G1B20
Duration: 1 hour
Abstract: Late at night, the world can look fuzzy to tired eyes.  Thankfully, a pair of reading glasses or a good night's sleep will make things clear again.  However, in the quantum world there is a fundamental fuzziness that cannot be fixed with glasses or a good night's sleep.  Remarkably, this fundamental quantum fuzziness is responsible for keeping the stuff you and I are made out of from collapsing, and is the key to making atomic clocks that are accurate to a few parts in a billion billion.  The quantum fuzziness does eventually serve to blur our best measurements of the world around us.  We will discuss both the quantum certainties and uncertainties created by quantum fuzziness, and how we use quantum entanglement to stitch together laser-cooled and levitated atoms to reduce their total quantum fuzziness.

The Department of Physics proudly presents the 2014-2015 Saturday Physics Series, for High School Students and adults!

BELLA GAIA is a globally recognized immersive experience created by award winning director, composer, and violinist Kenji Williams. The multimedia show combines high fidelity imagery of the Earth from space, data visualizations, and stirring live performances of music and dance from around the world, threaded by an orbiting flight path and stunning NASA imagery from the International Space Station. Described as a "Silk Road" experience expanded to a global, cosmic scale, the award winning BELLA GAIA tells a cosmic story, exploring both human and natural expressions of the Living Universe, illuminating the relationship between human civilization and nature as we enter the Anthropogenic Age. Inspired by astronauts who spoke of the life changing power of seeing the Earth from space, this moving celebration of our cultural heritage leaves audiences with a transformative sense of wonder and inspiration seeing the Earth as a multifaceted yet cohesive working organism and gives people pause to contemplate our place in it.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Monteverdi’s drama about sex, crime and realpolitik during the debauched reign of the Roman Emperor Nero, turning conventional morality on its head—virtue is punished and greed rewarded. The score soars but the sensual duet between Nero and his lover—eventually wife—Poppea, Pur ti miro, pur ti godo—meaning, “I gaze at you, I possess you”—is the pièce de résistance. Sung in Italian with English surtitles. This production will be styled after the hit Netflix realpolitik series 'House of Cards,' starring Kevin Spacey.

Event Image "Babel in Zion" Author Talk with Liora Halperin
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Special Closing Event for CU at the JCC: A Scholars Series

Babel in Zion: Jews, Nationalism and Language Diversity in Palestine, 1920-1948

Author talk with Professor Liora Halperin

Sunday, April 26, 7 pm

At the Boulder JCC

Tickets: $12 on line, $15 at the door

Free for students

Reservations: boulderjcc.org

Books will be available for purchase

 

The story of language in Jewish Palestine is a fascinating tale of shifting power relationships, both locally and globally. Liora Halperin’s absorbing new study questions the accepted scholarly narrative of a Zionist move away from multilingualism and explores the promotion and vernacularization of Hebrew - traditionally a language of Jewish liturgy and study - as a central accomplishment of the Zionist movement in Palestine in the years following World War I.

 

Liora R. Halperin is an Assistant Professor of History and Jewish Studies at CU-Boulder.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Talk title: Income inequality and children's mental health: new findings and promising tools
Abstract: Low-income children growing up in economically mixed neighborhoods are expected to benefit from higher quality schools, more prosocial peer groups and greater access to amenities and opportunities. Contrary to this belief, new research from the Environmental-Risk Longitudinal Twin Study finds that low-income children fare worse when they grow up in the ‘shadow of wealth’ as compared to their peers living in concentrated poverty. The role of both local area poverty and inequality in shaping children’s behavior and health is highlighted, alongside examples of findings from new research using ambulatory methods for capturing children’s mental health, geography and behavior in context.

People have been searching for traces of this lost play for hundreds of years, but nobody really knows for sure what it really might have looked like. That’s all about to change. As a class, we will use some of the evidence that we do have about Cardenio and knowledge about how Shakespeare wrote characters and plot to recreate the lost play. This is a class where you will be working on your feet, creating the scenes and performing the characters that will make up our play. At the end of the class, you will perform our version of Cardenio, complete with costumes and props designed by the class.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.
