11:00 AM - 7:00 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.

Rate Control under Heavy Traffic with Strategic Servers -- a Mean-Field Game Analysis

We consider a large queueing system that consists of many strategic servers that are weakly interacting. Each server processes jobs from its unique critically loaded buffer and  controls the rate of arrivals and departures associated with its queue to minimize its expected cost. The rates and the cost functions in addition to  depending on the control action, can depend, in a symmetric fashion, on the size of the individual queue and the empirical measure of the states  of all queues in the system. In order to determine an approximate Nash equilibrium for this finite player game we construct  a Lasry-Lions type mean-field game (MFG) for certain reflected diffusions that governs the limiting behavior. Under conditions, we  establish the convergence of the Nash-equilibrium value for the finite size queuing system to the value of the MFG. In general  closed form solutions of such MFG are not available and thus numerical  methods are needed. We use the Markov chain approximation method to  construct approximations for the solution of the MFG and establish convergence of the numerical scheme.

Asian Borderlands with Hjorleiffur Jonsson
4:30 PM - 7:00 PM

What alternatives exist to rigid borders? How can examples from Southeast Asia help us answer this timely question? In this Asian Borderlands talk, "Mosquito-Relish Diplomacy: Civil Pluralism in the Asian Borderlands," anthropologist Hjorleifur Jonsson asks how ethnic minorities navigate being in a zone claimed by three states: Thailand, Laos and China. Using ethnographic and archival evidence, Jonsson challenges the appealing but simple argument that upland Southeast Asia is a "zone of refuge" from the inequity and oppression of lowland states. By contrast, Jonsson considers traditions of civil pluralism and the peaceful negotiation of diversity in the region that have been informed by Emperor Ping’s Charter. Although of questionable veracity, the charter situates the Yao people in China's south as separate from Chinese society and confined to the forested wilderness. It also states that border transgressions are subject to unique fines: a jar of mosquito relish along with a measure of unjointed bamboo and other unusual items. Jonsson asks how these historical traditions facilitate complex and flexible relations between state and non-state authorities. Please join the Center for Asian Studies for the fourth and final installment of the Asian Borderlands series. Jonsson will be joined by a panel of CU faculty, including Christian S. Hammons (Anthropology), Ben Joffe (Anthropology) and Kwangmin Kim (History).

NVC 9 Championship

Entering its 9th year, the CU New Venture Challenge (NVC) has created a reputation as the go-to program for aspiring entrepreneurs across the CU Boulder campus. There has been a 300% increase in participation in the pitch and business plan competition since the first Challenge in 2009. The NVC is CU Boulder’s entrepreneurial “flight simulator,” giving teams the chance to build a startup with support and mentorship from across campus as well as many of the area’s most important entrepreneurs, startups and established businesses.

The NVC is divided into industry-specific “tracks” targeted to help specific business types including General, Information Technology, Research and Development and Performing Arts. The Social Impact Prize encourages teams to take into account social and environmental responsibility and the Women’s Entrepreneurship Prize encourages and promotes female entrepreneurs. In NVC8, about one quarter of all teams had woman founders or core members.

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Religion and Human Rights After the 2016 Election

Public Panel with Professor Samuel Moyn
Greg Johnson (Religious Studies, CU) • Susan Kent (History, CU) • Carl Raschke (Religious Studies, DU) • Joshua Wilson (Political Science, DU) 


Thursday, April 6, 2017 | 6:00PM - 8:00PM

Eaton Humanities, Room 250 (second floor) | CU Boulder campus

1610 Pleasant Street, Boulder, CO

Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu.

 

What will the future of human rights look like after the 2016 election? How have religious traditions shaped our thinking about human dignity and democracy in the past, and how might the relationship between religion and human rights change in a time marked by developments such as populist movements, Brexit, and the election of Donald Trump? Our guest scholar, Professor Samuel Moyn, will join an interdisciplinary panel of CU and DU faculty to explore these questions, reflecting on the fraught history—and uncertain future— of religion and human rights. 

Samuel Moyn is Jeremiah Smith, Jr. Professor of Law and Professor of History at Harvard University. He received a doctorate in modern European history from the University of California- Berkeley in 2000 and a law degree from Harvard University in 2001. He has written several books on European intellectual history and human rights history, including The Last Utopia: Human Rights in History (Harvard University Press, 2010), and edited a number of others. His new book, based on the Mellon Distinguished Lectures at the University of Pennsylvania, is Christian Human Rights (2015). 


Event Image Ancient Light by Dr. Erica Ellingson
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

A thousand years ago, the Ancestral Puebloans built a complex and extensive civilization in the mountains and deserts of the Southwest US. They left behind extraordinary art and architecture which reflect their intimate relationship with the land, the sun, the moon and stars. Our project combines the scholarly, artistic and technological expertise of the University of Colorado, Boulder. Our team includes astronomers and archaeologists who have made some of the most important discoveries in these regions. Our production team at Fiske Planetarium uses forefront technology to create high-resolution full-dome environments which will immerse our audiences in the stunning landscapes, archaeological sites and under starry skies. This educational experience will combine ancient knowledge and modern technology to explore the universal connection between humans and the skies.
