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

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.

“Jesus Christ Superstar is big, brash and bold…” – Liverpool Daily Post

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 "Rosenzweig and the 'Academy of Jewish Science'": Colloquium with Randi Rashkover
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.

CU-Boulder – Interdepartmental Neuroscience Seminar Series

Muenzinger Psychology, Room E214, 4 pm

Garret Stuber, Assistant Professor, Departments of Psychiatry & Cell Biology and Physiology, Neuroscience Center and Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

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.

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.

In addition to his discovery of the Titanic, Dr. Ballard has succeeded in tracking down numerous other significant shipwrecks, including the German battleship KMS Bismarck, the lost fleet of Guadalcanal, the U.S. aircraft carrier USS Yorktown, and John F. Kennedy’s boat, PT-109. For his event at CU in April, Dr. Ballard will deliver a lecture titled “Adventures in Deep Sea Exploration: Living the Dream,” in which he present his most recent work in deep water archaeology and the technology of tele-presence. Dr. Ballard will share his findings from numerous expeditions where he searched for, located, and documented sites of historical significance.

The Distinguished Speakers Board is a student-run cost center of the CU Student Government with the mission to bring the world’s greatest minds to the CU Boulder campus. For more information on this event, please visit: http://cudsb.org/.

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.

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.

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. 

BIO: Rich Caruana is a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research. Before joining Microsoft, Rich was on the faculty at the Computer Science Department at Cornell University, at UCLA’s Medical School, and at CMU’s Center for Learning and Discovery (CALD). Rich’s Ph.D. is from Carnegie Mellon University, where he worked with Tom Mitchell and Herb Simon. His thesis on Multi-Task Learning helped generate interest in a new subfield of machine learning called Transfer Learning. Rich received an NSF CAREER Award in 2004 (for Meta Clustering), best paper awards in 2005 (with Alex Niculescu-Mizil), 2007 (with Daria Sorokina), and 2014 (with Todd Kulesza, Saleema Amershi, Danyel Fisher, and Denis Charles), co-chaired KDD in 2007 (with Xindong Wu), and serves as area chair for NIPS, ICML, and KDD. His current research focus is on learning for medical decision making, deep learning, adaptive clustering, and computational ecology.
CU Engage: Conversations on Ethical and Equitable Community Engagement
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

CU Engage: Conversations on Ethical and Equitable Community Engagement 

April 23, 3:30 – 4:30pm

UMC 415-415

Beth Osnes, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Theatre and Dance who has extensive experience collaborating with community groups, will share the story of her path in coming to understand best practices for ethical and equitable community engagement.  She will then lead the group through a creative framework to:

  • identify our values (individually and collectively) that are the foundation of community engagement;
  • critique models of community engagement we are trying to move beyond;
  • imagine the new model for engagement we hope to achieve;
  • devise actions that can move us from the old model to the new model. 

Together we will consider these actions, anticipate likely obstacles, and generate solutions.  A lively conversation will be facilitated that allows participants to share their experiences and goals for doing engaged work that benefits both our students and our community partners.

This is the second in an ongoing series organized by CU Engage about ethical and equitable community engagement. (The first session was led by a team of students who presented a talk focused about the community engagement experiences and perspectives of CU Boulder Students of Color).

All are welcome!

Dr. Alter seeks answer to the question of why asana (postures) and pranayama (breath control) came to be understood within the framework of Nature Cure in modern India. The focus is on the correlation between purification and embodied perfection, and the way in which impurity is understood to be problematic for health as well as tfor the development of transcendent consciousness. Joseph Alter is a Professor of Anthropology at the University of Pittsburgh. Please join us for this public lecture on April 23rd at 6:30pm in Eaton Humanities 150.

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.

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!

Event Image L'incoronazione di Poppea
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.

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

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

Sunday, April 26, 7 pm

At the Boulder JCC

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Dinosaurs Without Bones; Dinosaur Lives Revealed by Their Trace Fossils
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

What if we woke up one morning all of the dinosaur bones in the world were gone? How would we know these iconic animals had a 165-million year history on earth, and had adapted to all land-based environments from pole to pole? What clues would be left not only to discern their presence, but also to learn about their sex lives, raising of young, social lives, combat, and who ate who?

Welcome to the world of ichnology, the study of traces and trace fossils—such as tracks, trails, burrows, nests, tooth marks, and other vestiges of behavior—and how through these remarkable clues, we can explore and intuit the rich and complicated lives of dinosaurs. With a unique, detective-like approach that interprets the clues left by these long-extinct animals, Anthony Martin brings the wild world of the Mesozoic to life for the 21st century reader.

This is the third lecture of the Steps in Stone Lecture Series on animal locomotion to accompany the  Steps in Stone, Walking through Time exhibit. This series of talks will celebrate the movements of animals on Earth—both today and in the past.

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.

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.

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Anthropology tends to view hunter-gatherers and farmers as very distinct groups with dramatically different kinds of social and settlement patterns. However, archaeologists know that foragers and farmers lived near each other and interacted intensively in many times and places. The King Site on the Nebraska Pine Ridge dates to the agricultural transition on the Plains and seems to document the lives of people on the way to becoming farmers. The site suggests complex, perhaps multi-ethnic, origins for the communities that later develop into eastern Plains farmers. Come join us and Dr. Doug Bamforth of the University of Colorado-Boulder's Department of Anthropology as we explore the lives and impact of early farmers.

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.

All Day

4000-level History Course in Shanghai, Maymester 2015

Professor Tim Weston, a specialist on modern Chinese history, will be teaching this course. He taught a similar course in Beijing two years ago.

"It was one of the best teaching experiences of my life
."
- Professor Tim Weston

PROGRAM INFORMATION

·  Discover how Shanghai’s and Nanjing's rich history has shaped modern China.

·  Live in one of the most dynamic and important cities in China and East Asia.

·  Visit transformed treaty port neighborhoods, the site where the Chinese Communist Party was founded, traditional gardens, and the center of China’s financial world.

·  If you are a History major or Asian Studies major or minor, fulfill an upper division major/minor requirement. No previous knowledge of Chinese language required.

·  This Global Seminar was awarded funding by the Center for Asian Studies through the Tang Fund. A generous scholarship will cover most participant expenses.

Location Description

Shanghai has been China’s most vibrant and important global city since it was forcibly opened as a treaty port following the Opium War of the mid-nineteenth century. The city served as a melting pot for sojourners from across China and from around the world, which resulted in the development of a highly cosmopolitan urban culture. Shanghai was also China’s most important port city, the center of China’s industrial production, and the country’s financial and media capital. The transformations that Shanghai has undergone over the course of the nearly two centuries since the Opium War make it an ideal living laboratory for the study of modern Chinese history.

For Eligibility and more information, visit Office of International Education

Academics

  • You will receive CU-Boulder "in residence" credit for courses taken on this program as if you had completed the work on the Boulder campus.
  • You are required to be a full time student while studying abroad (does not apply to summer programs).
  • You may apply credit to your major and college requirements with approval from your academic advisor.
  • You should be aware that some subjects (i.e. cooking, recreation, tourism) are not eligible to count for any credit at CU.

The purpose of this Global Seminar is to make use of the wide variety of museums and historical and contemporary sites in and around Shanghai to explore that city’s uniquely important role in modern Chinese history. We will begin by studying historical events and themes in a classroom setting and then venture into the city itself to study the multiple ways those same events and themes have been memorialized or in some instances erased, in present-day Shanghai. You will gain a strong appreciation for both the content of modern Chinese history and for how that history is remembered and made use of in China today. In addition, you will learn to think critically about the relationship of the past to the present; the ways the past is used by actors in the present; the way memorials capture and present meaning; the role of museums and how to view them with a critical eye; and the ways Shanghai, as a key site in modern China, has constantly re-invented itself in tandem with the dramatic transformation of the country as a whole over the course of modern history.

The course is open to any CU-Boulder undergraduate and there are no pre-requisites. Given the focus of the class, it should be of particular interest to students studying Chinese Language and Literature, Anthropology, Asian Studies, Geography, History, International Affairs, or Political Science. However, interested students from all disciplines are welcome. All instruction in the course will be done in English and all written work will likewise be done in English.

The 3-week course will start in Boulder and end with two weeks in Shanghai. The Boulder component will consist of 3-hour classes (with lecture, discussion, and film viewing components) to provide students with the basic historical narrative regarding modern Chinese history as a whole. The Shanghai component will consist of two hours of class discussion and 1 to 2 field trips, including lectures, each day. In addition to our time in Shanghai, we will travel to nearby Nanjing, another key city in modern Chinese history and the site of many important memorials, including one to Sun Yat-sen, the “founder” of modern China, and one to the victims of the horrific Nanjing Massacre conducted by the Japanese at the start of World War II in Asia.

Location Description

Shanghai has been China’s most vibrant and important global city since it was forcibly opened as a treaty port following the Opium War of the mid-nineteenth century. The city served as a melting pot for sojourners from across China and from around the world, which resulted in the development of a highly cosmopolitan urban culture. Shanghai was also China’s most important port city, the center of China’s industrial production, and the country’s financial and media capital. The transformations that Shanghai has undergone over the course of the nearly two centuries since the Opium War make it an ideal living laboratory for the study of modern Chinese history.

Academics

  • You will receive CU-Boulder "in residence" credit for courses taken on this program as if you had completed the work on the Boulder campus.
  • You are required to be a full time student while studying abroad (does not apply to summer programs).
  • You may apply credit to your major and college requirements with approval from your academic advisor.
  • You should be aware that some subjects (i.e. cooking, recreation, tourism) are not eligible to count for any credit at CU.

The purpose of this Global Seminar is to make use of the wide variety of museums and historical and contemporary sites in and around Shanghai to explore that city’s uniquely important role in modern Chinese history. We will begin by studying historical events and themes in a classroom setting and then venture into the city itself to study the multiple ways those same events and themes have been memorialized or in some instances erased, in present-day Shanghai. You will gain a strong appreciation for both the content of modern Chinese history and for how that history is remembered and made use of in China today. In addition, you will learn to think critically about the relationship of the past to the present; the ways the past is used by actors in the present; the way memorials capture and present meaning; the role of museums and how to view them with a critical eye; and the ways Shanghai, as a key site in modern China, has constantly re-invented itself in tandem with the dramatic transformation of the country as a whole over the course of modern history.

The course is open to any CU-Boulder undergraduate and there are no pre-requisites. Given the focus of the class, it should be of particular interest to students studying Chinese Language and Literature, Anthropology, Asian Studies, Geography, History, International Affairs, or Political Science. However, interested students from all disciplines are welcome. All instruction in the course will be done in English and all written work will likewise be done in English.

The 3-week course will start in Boulder and end with two weeks in Shanghai. The Boulder component will consist of 3-hour classes (with lecture, discussion, and film viewing components) to provide students with the basic historical narrative regarding modern Chinese history as a whole. The Shanghai component will consist of two hours of class discussion and 1 to 2 field trips, including lectures, each day. In addition to our time in Shanghai, we will travel to nearby Nanjing, another key city in modern Chinese history and the site of many important memorials, including one to Sun Yat-sen, the “founder” of modern China, and one to the victims of the horrific Nanjing Massacre conducted by the Japanese at the start of World War II in Asia.


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.

."
- Professor Tim Weston

PROGRAM INFORMATION

·  Discover how Shanghai’s and Nanjing's rich history has shaped modern China.

·  Live in one of the most dynamic and important cities in China and East Asia.

·  Visit transformed treaty port neighborhoods, the site where the Chinese Communist Party was founded, traditional gardens, and the center of China’s financial world.

·  If you are a History major or Asian Studies major or minor, fulfill an upper division major/minor requirement. No previous knowledge of Chinese language required.

·  This Global Seminar was awarded funding by the Center for Asian Studies through the Tang Fund. A generous scholarship will cover most participant expenses.

Location Description

Shanghai has been China’s most vibrant and important global city since it was forcibly opened as a treaty port following the Opium War of the mid-nineteenth century. The city served as a melting pot for sojourners from across China and from around the world, which resulted in the development of a highly cosmopolitan urban culture. Shanghai was also China’s most important port city, the center of China’s industrial production, and the country’s financial and media capital. The transformations that Shanghai has undergone over the course of the nearly two centuries since the Opium War make it an ideal living laboratory for the study of modern Chinese history.

Academics

  • You will receive CU-Boulder "in residence" credit for courses taken on this program as if you had completed the work on the Boulder campus.
  • You are required to be a full time student while studying abroad (does not apply to summer programs).
  • You may apply credit to your major and college requirements with approval from your academic advisor.
  • You should be aware that some subjects (i.e. cooking, recreation, tourism) are not eligible to count for any credit at CU.

The purpose of this Global Seminar is to make use of the wide variety of museums and historical and contemporary sites in and around Shanghai to explore that city’s uniquely important role in modern Chinese history. We will begin by studying historical events and themes in a classroom setting and then venture into the city itself to study the multiple ways those same events and themes have been memorialized or in some instances erased, in present-day Shanghai. You will gain a strong appreciation for both the content of modern Chinese history and for how that history is remembered and made use of in China today. In addition, you will learn to think critically about the relationship of the past to the present; the ways the past is used by actors in the present; the way memorials capture and present meaning; the role of museums and how to view them with a critical eye; and the ways Shanghai, as a key site in modern China, has constantly re-invented itself in tandem with the dramatic transformation of the country as a whole over the course of modern history.

The course is open to any CU-Boulder undergraduate and there are no pre-requisites. Given the focus of the class, it should be of particular interest to students studying Chinese Language and Literature, Anthropology, Asian Studies, Geography, History, International Affairs, or Political Science. However, interested students from all disciplines are welcome. All instruction in the course will be done in English and all written work will likewise be done in English.

The 3-week course will start in Boulder and end with two weeks in Shanghai. The Boulder component will consist of 3-hour classes (with lecture, discussion, and film viewing components) to provide students with the basic historical narrative regarding modern Chinese history as a whole. The Shanghai component will consist of two hours of class discussion and 1 to 2 field trips, including lectures, each day. In addition to our time in Shanghai, we will travel to nearby Nanjing, another key city in modern Chinese history and the site of many important memorials, including one to Sun Yat-sen, the “founder” of modern China, and one to the victims of the horrific Nanjing Massacre conducted by the Japanese at the start of World War II in Asia.


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.

  • You should be aware that some subjects (i.e. cooking, recreation, tourism) are not eligible to count for any credit at CU.

The purpose of this Global Seminar is to make use of the wide variety of museums and historical and contemporary sites in and around Shanghai to explore that city’s uniquely important role in modern Chinese history. We will begin by studying historical events and themes in a classroom setting and then venture into the city itself to study the multiple ways those same events and themes have been memorialized or in some instances erased, in present-day Shanghai. You will gain a strong appreciation for both the content of modern Chinese history and for how that history is remembered and made use of in China today. In addition, you will learn to think critically about the relationship of the past to the present; the ways the past is used by actors in the present; the way memorials capture and present meaning; the role of museums and how to view them with a critical eye; and the ways Shanghai, as a key site in modern China, has constantly re-invented itself in tandem with the dramatic transformation of the country as a whole over the course of modern history.

The course is open to any CU-Boulder undergraduate and there are no pre-requisites. Given the focus of the class, it should be of particular interest to students studying Chinese Language and Literature, Anthropology, Asian Studies, Geography, History, International Affairs, or Political Science. However, interested students from all disciplines are welcome. All instruction in the course will be done in English and all written work will likewise be done in English.

The 3-week course will start in Boulder and end with two weeks in Shanghai. The Boulder component will consist of 3-hour classes (with lecture, discussion, and film viewing components) to provide students with the basic historical narrative regarding modern Chinese history as a whole. The Shanghai component will consist of two hours of class discussion and 1 to 2 field trips, including lectures, each day. In addition to our time in Shanghai, we will travel to nearby Nanjing, another key city in modern Chinese history and the site of many important memorials, including one to Sun Yat-sen, the “founder” of modern China, and one to the victims of the horrific Nanjing Massacre conducted by the Japanese at the start of World War II in Asia.


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.

- Professor Tim Weston

PROGRAM INFORMATION

·  Discover how Shanghai’s and Nanjing's rich history has shaped modern China.

·  Live in one of the most dynamic and important cities in China and East Asia.

·  Visit transformed treaty port neighborhoods, the site where the Chinese Communist Party was founded, traditional gardens, and the center of China’s financial world.

·  If you are a History major or Asian Studies major or minor, fulfill an upper division major/minor requirement. No previous knowledge of Chinese language required.

·  This Global Seminar was awarded funding by the Center for Asian Studies through the Tang Fund. A generous scholarship will cover most participant expenses.

Location Description

Shanghai has been China’s most vibrant and important global city since it was forcibly opened as a treaty port following the Opium War of the mid-nineteenth century. The city served as a melting pot for sojourners from across China and from around the world, which resulted in the development of a highly cosmopolitan urban culture. Shanghai was also China’s most important port city, the center of China’s industrial production, and the country’s financial and media capital. The transformations that Shanghai has undergone over the course of the nearly two centuries since the Opium War make it an ideal living laboratory for the study of modern Chinese history.

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.

Much Ado About Nothing
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me.
Directed by Jim Helsinger

Romantic, raucous and razor-sharp, the Hamlet of Shakespeare comedies strikes hilarious chords even as it reveals timeless truths about love, change and acceptance. The men have returned victorious from war, but the merry sparring — and sparks — between Benedick the stubborn bachelor and witty, self-assured Beatrice have just begun.

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.

Wittenberg

“Hilarity, thy name is Wittenberg.” — The New York Times
Directed by Timothy Orr

To believe or not to believe? That is the question when Prince Hamlet, a dazed-and-confused senior at Wittenberg University, circa 1517, is caught in the crossfire between two giants of philosophy — and ego — the freethinking skeptic Dr. Faustus and stuffy, guilt-ridden Martin Luther. Punny, funny, brainy and zany, David Davalos’ ingenious mashup is equal parts Tom Stoppard, campus caper and metaphysical mind-trip. Colorado premier.

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.
