Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibit: Shakespeare's Bouquet (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

A Graph Distance for the Structural Analysis of Dynamic Networks

  To quantify the evolution of time-varying networks, and detect abnormal behavior, one needs a notion of temporal difference that captures significant organizational changes between two successive instants.

  We propose a family of distances to quantify structural changes occurring on a graph at different scales.  We design a randomized algorithm, which scales nearly linearly in the number of edges, to compute an approximation to this novel graph distance.

  We demonstrate that temporal changes in this graph distance can be used to detect configurational changes that are directly related to the hidden variables governing the evolution of dynamic networks.

  This is work in collaboration with Dr. Nathan Monnig.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Event Image ECEE Colloquium: A Game Changer for the Solar Industry?
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Will Perovskite Semiconductors be a Game Changer for the Solar Industry?

WHO: Michael McGehee of the Precourt Institute for Energy
WHEN: 11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 30
WHERE: ECEE 1B32

ABSTRACT: In the last five years the power conversion efficiency of solar cells made with perovskite semiconductors has soared from less than 7% to over 22%. Only four other families of semiconductors have ever reached this efficiency. Perovskites are very attractive compared to those families because they can be deposited from solution at low cost and they have the right bandgaps to be used in tandem solar cells. In tandems one semiconductor harvests the photons in the solar spectrum that have higher energy and generates a big voltage while another semiconductor harvests the photons with lower energy.  Using this strategy makes it possible to improve the efficiency by approximately 50%. In this seminar I will discuss: 

- The properties that make perovskite semiconductors so great for solar cells
- Progress towards demonstrating high-efficiency tandems with perovskites stacked on top of conventional silicon solar cells
- The challenge of making perovskite solar cells stable and three big recent advances that have improved the stability by more than 10,000x
- Whether or not to the toxicity of lead, which is used in the best perovskite semiconductors,  is a problem and what could be done to replace the lead
- The status of scaling up and commercializing this exciting technology
- How the levelized cost of electricity from solar panels that incorporate perovskites is likely to compare to that of conventional solar cell technology

BIO: Michael D. McGehee is a Professor in the Materials Science and Engineering Department and a Senior Fellow of the Precourt Institute for Energy.  His research interests are developing new materials for smart windows and solar cells.  He has taught courses on nanotechnology, nanocharacterization, organic semiconductors, polymer science and solar cells. He received his undergraduate degree in physics from Princeton University and his PhD degree in Materials Science from the University of California at Santa Barbara, where he did research on polymer lasers in the lab of Nobel Laureate Alan Heeger.  He won the 2007 Materials Research Society Outstanding Young Investigator Award. He is a technical advisor to Next Energy, PLANT PV, and Sinovia and his former students have started more than ten companies.

Why Major in the Arts and Humanities?
5:15 PM - 6:00 PM

The Divisional Dean for the Arts and Humanities invites new students to a talk about why majoring in the Arts and Humanities continues to make sense (e.g., a 2012 survey of 650 CEOs and Heads of Product Engineering shows that 60% majored in these fields). Learn more about great alumni in our majors who have gone on to achieve spectacular careers, and think about whether the skills we teach you might be those you want to develop and expand.
Bystander Intervention Skills Refresher
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

You were trained in bystander intervention skills your first year at CU, but a lot has happened in between then and now. Attend this refresher workshop to brush up on your skills and improve your ability to deal with the complex situations that you run into on campus and beyond.
French 3
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

This fall we will continue into French III with a Comprehensible Input approach that leaves no adult learner behind. Students will experience language through its narrative and creative avenues in what is for many is an anxiety-reducing, naturalistic way of learning. Each lesson will focus on the repetition in multiple contexts of a very small handful of structures. By the end of eight weeks, students will be able to understand and respond (with short phrases andor appropriate body language) to questions about themselves and their classmates and will participate in the construction of stories based on realities close and not-so-close to home. 90 of this course will be in French. More reading and writing will be included in this course.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

All Day

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Physics Colloquium, "Cosmic Dust Research at the Colorado Dust Accelerator"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Tobin Munsat, University of Colorado Boulder

Abstract: Cosmic dust grains play a central role in astrophysics and planetary science; the interaction of dust grains with planetary surfaces and atmospheres can drive weathering processes, surface chemistry (for airless bodies), and even atmospheric chemistry on Earth. Dust-detecting instruments can provide insight into the environment where the particles were formed, whether that is the interstellar medium, comets, asteroids, or even ejected from the surfaces of planets and moons. From a basic physics point of view, hypervelocity impact experiments can access extremely high energy density levels. To address many facets of cosmic dust research in the lab, we have recently developed a dust accelerator on the east campus of CU. This is a 3 MV electrostatic linear accelerator which launches particles in the size range of 0.1 to a few micrometers and velocities up to 100 km/s onto a variety of targets. This talk will describe the basic details of the accelerator and provide an overview of several lines of research being carried out by our group. Specifically, I will discuss hypervelocity impact cratering experiments in thin films, impact experiments into cryogenic (ice) targets, making "shooting stars" in the lab, and the local development of dust detector instruments that have flown to the moon and will soon fly to Jupiter's moon Europa.

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

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

What is Big Data and Why Should I Care? Lessons from Human Genomics

Over the past decade, the rapid advance of technology has resulted in an unprecedented amount of molecular and genetic data. For biomedical researchers, these data present many new opportunities to gain insights into the biological factors underlying disease processes. This large scale data also presents numerous challenges for researchers ranging from processing to analysis to interpretation. As we navigate through the “big data” era of biomedical research, it is critical that we are able to convert the rich high dimensional data into valuable information as it relates to disease etiology and disease risk. In this talk, we will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities of “big data” and strategies that researchers are using to harness the data to yield useful information for understanding the disease process.

French 3
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

This fall we will continue into French III with a Comprehensible Input approach that leaves no adult learner behind. Students will experience language through its narrative and creative avenues in what is for many is an anxiety-reducing, naturalistic way of learning. Each lesson will focus on the repetition in multiple contexts of a very small handful of structures. By the end of eight weeks, students will be able to understand and respond (with short phrases andor appropriate body language) to questions about themselves and their classmates and will participate in the construction of stories based on realities close and not-so-close to home. 90 of this course will be in French. More reading and writing will be included in this course.
