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.

Colorado Congresswoman Diana DeGette is co-leading a bipartisan effort to take a comprehensive look at what steps we can take to accelerate the pace of cures in America – from basic science to streamlining the drug and device development process. Congresswoman DeGette is seeking the input of a number of experts, including thought leaders from academia, research and industry, to understand their opinions on this national problem. The BioFrontiers Institute invites you to join a discussion with Congresswoman DeGette on the 21st Century Cures Initiative: Monday, May 4 from 4 – 5 p.m.
JSCBB-A104 Seating is limited and RSVPs are requested at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/P9MLTVS

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

This class will take us through the process of writing a play. Starting with writing exercises to help us learn about how a play works, we will compose, collaboratively workshop, revise and then perform a staged reading of our own 10-minute plays. Beyond our writing, we will also discuss playwriting in the American theatre. What do playwrights do? How do new plays get produced? The class will also be given the opportunity to submit their plays to national young playwrights contests.

Teacher: Sarah Johnson

Classes will be held at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival Cottage at 1301 Grandview Ave. near CU-Boulder.

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.

Event Image What Is A Hunter-Gatherer? On the Cusp of Maize Farming in Western Nebraska
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.

CompSci Colloquium: Mor Naaman (Cornell Tech)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Patterns of Large-Scale Attention

ABSTRACT: Complaints about information overload date back to medieval times, but not until recently has the competition over our attention had become so fierce. At the same time, researchers now have new opportunities to capture and model the attention we collectively pay and use this data to generate new insights and applications. Naaman will give two examples of mining attention from different domains. First, he will use reading depth data for online media to show attention patterns in online media and how they are dependent on factors like device, referral source and even features of the text. Second, he will use geo-tagged social media data to show how pay attention to different hyper-local locations, how this attention is spread differently depending on service and device, and what new systems can be enabled by this information. 

BIO: Mor Naaman is an associate professor at the Jacobs Institute at Cornell Tech, and co-founder and Chief Scientist at Seen.co, a startup founded to make sense of the real-time web and social media. Mor's research applies multidisciplinary methods to gain new insights about people and society from social media data, and to develop novel tools to make this data more accessible and usable in various settings. Previously, Mor was on the faculty at Rutgers SC&I, led a research team at Yahoo! Research Berkeley, received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University, and played professional basketball for Hapoel Tel Aviv. He is a recipient of a NSF Early Faculty CAREER Award, research awards from Google, Yahoo!, and Nokia, and multiple best paper awards. Find out more about Mor at http://mornaaman.com.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

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 sixth annual GoldLab Symposium, a two-day event, focuses on the scientific and the social components of health care. In addition to the usual interesting science, humor, clinical information, medical research, and quality-of-life issues, we once again come together to think, learn, and laugh in hopes that we can turn our discussions into actions for improving health care and healthy living for all.
Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

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.

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: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

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.

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.

Modern Unreinforced Masonry Buildings: Towards a Displacement-Based Design

ABSTRACT: Unreinforced masonry (URM) structures are known to be rather vulnerable to seismic loading. Modern URM buildings with reinforced concrete (RC) slabs might, however, have an acceptable seismic performance for regions of low to moderate seismicity. In particular in countries of moderate seismicity it is often difficult to demonstrate the seismic safety of modern URM buildings by means of force-based design methods. Displacement-based design methods are known to lead to more realistic and less conservative results, opening up hence new opportunities for the use of structural masonry. An effective implementation of displacement-based design approaches requires reliable estimates of the structure’s force and displacement capacity.

This presentation takes a fresh look at the in-plane drift capacity of URM walls and discusses in particular the influence of the boundary conditions, the size of the test unit and the applied loading history on the drift capacities of URM walls. In addition, also the effect of the boundary conditions on the out-of-plane response of the URM walls is analyzed by means of discrete element simulations, which are validated against the results of a shake table test on a half-scale four story building. It is shown that the boundary conditions are not well represented by the commonly analyzed cases and that the flanking walls play a crucial role in the out-of-plane response.

BIO: Katrin Beyer is Assistant Professor at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland and head of the Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics Laboratory (http://eesd.epfl.ch). After completing her undergraduate studies at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ), she worked for two years for the consulting firm ARUP in London, UK, on projects related to structural dynamics, impact and seismic analysis. She received her PhD from the University of Pavia, Italy. Her research interests include the seismic behavior of reinforced concrete walls and of unreinforced masonry structures and large-scale structural testing.

Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

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.

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.

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 : 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.

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.
