Event Image Exhibition: Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

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

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

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

What is Research in English: Incorporating Material Culture

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

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

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

Physics Colloquium, "Thermoelectrics and Thermoelectric Materials"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: David Singh, University of Missouri

Abstract: Thermoelectric devices are used for the conversion of thermal and electrical energy. They offer a number of advantages over competing technologies including scalability to small sizes and temperature differences, simple reliable designs and often low cost. However, these devices have not seen wide application in energy applications due to their limited conversion efficiency. This is a consequence of the limited performance of current thermoelectric materials, which can be characterized by a dimensionless figure of merit, ZT=σS2T/κ. There is no known fundamental limit on ZT. However, the combination of transport parameters entering ZT is a combination that does not occur in ordinary materials. This talk presents an overview of ZT and discusses strategies for optimizing ZT as well as recent results that point to ways of identifying new high ZT compositions. An important finding is that electronic structure plays a remarkably subtle role in thermoelectric performance that can however be simply visualized in terms of iso-energy surfaces. Finally, a connection is drawn between topological insulators and high ZT thermoelectrics, explaining the overlap between these two interesting materials classes. Characteristics that can be used to identify new thermoelectric compositions are presented and discussed.

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

Event Image FILM SCREENING: Scheherazade, Tell Me a Story
5:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Join the DSCC and Project NUR (an interfaith student  collective against islamophobia that works toward a more inclusive and accepting community) for a film screening of Scheherazade, Tell Me a Story.

The film tells the story of a female talk show host in Cairo who stirs up political controversy when she focuses her on-air discussions on the topic of women's issues. Named after the protagonist in A Thousand And One Nights, Scheherazade finds herself using the power of stories to empower herself and the women she interviews.

April 5th 5:00-7:30pm



Event Image “Digital Methodologies for Recovery and The Stainforth Library of Women's Writing” - Dr. K. Leuner
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

The CU Department of History Proudly Presents
Eploring Digital Humanities: A Lecture Series on Research & Padagogy

April 5, 5:30 p.m.
Norlin Library, Center for British and Irish Studies (5th floor)

Dr. Kirstyn Leuner / Department of English, Dartmouth College

“Digital Methodologies for Recovery and The Stainforth Library of Women's Writing”

 Abstract: Digital Humanities projects that aim to recover texts or authors are the most “alive” when they are under construction, in medias res, and a mess. That is, in the middle stages of production, digital projects circulate with the greatest audience engagement because they invite scholars to think about and manipulate data, structures, and interfaces from within to fix problems or augment existing content in meaningful ways. The advantage that digital scholarship has over print, in this context, is that it can remain in an un-done productive state for a long time, even during and beyond peer-review. 

 This talk will discuss methodologies for promoting critical thought and recovery from within a digital object in the context of an ongoing Digital Humanities project I direct called The Stainforth Library of Women's Writing. You can visit the Stainforth project at

Event Image Fefu and Her Friends
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

By Maria Irene Fornes
Directed by Paige Olson

This creatively staged play is a raw, realistic exploration of the challenges and struggles of everyday women. In 1935 New England, Fefu invites seven of her friends over to gossip and plan a charity presentation, but the day quickly unravels when one of the women is found dead. “Fefu and Her Friends” stands out in the world of theater thanks to its all-female cast, intimate staging and timely observation of gender roles in society.

Event Image NASA's GOLD Mission: Unprecedented Imaging from the Boundary Between Earth and Space
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The GOLD mission of opportunity is the first to image the Earth’s Thermosphere-Ionosphere (T-I) system—the boundary between Earth and space—from geostationary orbit. It will also be the first NASA science mission to fly as a hosted payload on a commercial communications satellite. The GOLD mission will study the T-I system’s response to forcing from the Sun and the Earth’s lower atmosphere. The mission will fly an ultraviolet imaging spectrograph, built by LASP, to observe the T-I over most of the American hemisphere at a thirty-minute cadence. From the dayside observations, simultaneous images of the composition and temperatures in the lower thermosphere will be obtained. At night, images of the peak electron densities in the low latitude ionosphere will be obtained. Our lack of understanding of how composition and densities in the thermosphere and ionosphere respond to forcing is a major contributor to uncertainties in predicting space weather. Consequently, GOLD’s global scale imaging will provide new insights into the response of the T-I system to solar extreme ultraviolet radiation, geomagnetic activity, and the waves and tides originating in Earth’s lower atmosphere. In addition, since GOLD repeatedly images the same geographic locations, it provides context for measurements from low Earth orbit or from the ground. In this talk, GOLD principal investigator, Richard Eastes, will discuss how GOLD measurements will give the scientific community a new perspective on the T-I system and the effects of space weather. GOLD is scheduled for launch late this year.
