Event Image Just Transition Conference (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The Just Transition Conference: Communicating Power in an Age of Climactic Change, the 2016-17 WFI symposium, will be held April 7-9, 2017 at Villanova University and is co-sponsored by BoulderTalks and the Waterhouse Family Institute. 

BoulderTalks is a center of the Department of Communication in the College of Media, Communication and Information at the University of Colorado Boulder.

About The Just Transition Conference: In these times, our only guarantee is that nothing is going to remain the same. This may give pause for feelings of pre-loss, fear, and anxiety about our own ecological precarity, as well as anger about how crises often are mobilized to exacerbate already existing patterns of political inequity. It also might inspire us to imagine how we can re-energize new power relations, create opportunities for political revolutions, and imagine a future worth striving towards. 

“Just transition” is a term developed by labor and climate justice movements to advocate the idea that the major transformation we are undergoing from a global fossil fuel carbon-based economy to a renewable energy economy should incorporate ecological and social justice. Advocates imagine this conjuncture not just as a retreat from a whole way of life, but also an opportunity to reassess and re-energize local and global cultural regimes of value. 

We welcome any and all submissions that will address these pressing and vital issues of social justice. More information? Please consult our CFP and/or contact the WFI Director.

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.

APPM Department Colloquium - Carlos Martins Filho
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Carlos Martins Filho, Department of Economics, University of Colorado Boulder

Unified estimation of densities on bounded and unbounded domains.

Kernel density estimation in domains with boundaries is known to suffer from undesirable boundary effects.  We show that in the case of smooth densities, a general and elegant approach is to extend the density and estimate its extension.  The resulting estimators in domains with boundaries have biases and variances expressed in terms of density extensions.  The result is that they have the same rates at boundary and interior points of the domain.  Contrary to the extant literature, our estimators require no kernel modification near the boundary and kernels commonly used for estimation on the real line can be applied.  Densities defined on the half-axis and in a unit interval are considered. The results are applied to estimation of densities that are discontinuous or have discontinuous derivatives, where they yield the same rates of convergence as for smooth densities on R.

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.

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 Theory of Flight
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Research meets fantasy in Theory of Flight, a performance by Anna Lindemann, a composer and artist trained in evolutionary and developmental biology. In a twist on the ancient myth of Icarus, a lecturing scientist reveals she’s been growing her own wings using avian genes. Animated chalkboard diagrams convey the molecular biology, while vocal music and animated silhouettes advance the plot, about the risks and rewards of pursuing impossible research.

Theory of Flight features Lucy Fitz Gibbon, noted for her clear voice (Mittelbayerische Zeitung) and endearing stage presence (The New York Times), as the Bird Spirit, and Anna Lindemann as scientist Alida Kear. The music, animation, and story are created by Anna Lindemann. The performance is directed by Kristen Demaree.

Performance run time is 50 minutes with a talkback following the show.

To see a preview and find out more about the performance visit:

The performance is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, so reserve your ticket today!
