Native American Geographies Exhibit at Earth Sciences & Map Library (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences & Map Library at the University of Colorado Boulder will host a new exhibition highlighting art and maps that addresses the history of Indigenous peoples’ lands in the United States. It will be on display May 1 through July 7, 2017.

The exhibit centers around Heart Mapping, a series of mixed media works on paper by Melanie Yazzie, CU Professor of Art and Art History and head of printmaking. Yazzie’s work evokes the American landscape as seen from above, in order to honor the vast breadth of Native homelands lost to Euro-American settlement. 

In addition, the exhibit focuses on the difficulty of accurately mapping lands that were coercively transferred over time, and whose boundaries are still disputed. Maps of Indigenous peoples’ distribution throughout the history of North America, detailed turn-of-the-century reservation maps, educational maps by Native American publishers, and tourist maps, offer a thought-provoking informational complement to Yazzie’s artwork.

Guest essayist Sarah Krakoff, Raphael J. Moses Professor of Law at University of Colorado Law School, offers historical context to government-published maps in the exhibit, as well as commentary on the current state of Indian Land law.

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.

Convective heat transport and overshoot in stratified atmospheres: open science with the Dedalus framework.

Convection is an important heat transport mechanism in many astrophysical objects including our Sun; convective overshoot is an important non-local mixing and transport process in stars, extending the influence of turbulent stellar convection beyond the unstable portions of the atmosphere. In the solar dynamo, overshoot into the tachocline has been ascribed a role in the storage and organization of the global-scale magnetic fields. Here we consider two interrelated problems within fully compressible dynamics across convection zones with significant stratification. We conduct these studies using the Dedalus pseudospectral framework. The first study is heat transport by convection in stratified atmospheres. For a suitably defined Nusselt number, we find that compressible convection transports heat analogously to well known incompressible Rayleigh-Benard convection. The second study is a narrow consideration of the properties of convective overshoot across very stiff interfaces. We extend prior studies of overshoot substantially and find that the depth of overshoot in DNS simulations of a typical plume is well-predicted by a simple buoyancy equilibration model. The implications of this model, extended into the stellar regime, are that very little overshoot should occur under solar conditions. This would seem to sharply limit the role of the tachocline within the global solar dynamo.

Event Image Two Epic Polar Explorers...Disaster and Success by Dr. Doug Duncan
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The stories of Sir John Franklin and Fridtjof Nansen.

One was the first Ph.D. polar explorer, the first to use electric lights on a ship, and a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. As well as the owner of one of the finest mustaches any man has worn. The other led a Titanic sized, slow motion disaster: All the men lost in the frozen north, bodies found frozen a century later, and lamented until today in mournful song.

Dr. Duncan, a veteran of many arctic trips to see the northern lights and a member of The Explorers Club, will describe the heroic and tragic stories of two of the most famous polar explorations of all time, including recent discoveries of frozen bodies and ships from the 1845 Franklin Expedition, and modern plans to repeat the Nansen expedition of 1892.
