Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

Hydrologic Sciences and Water Resources Engineering Seminar Series
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Seminar Title: Implications of groundwater-surface water connectivity for nitrogen transformations in the hyporheic zone
Presenter: Dr. Patrick Byrne, School of Natural Sciences and Psychology, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, UK
Rivers have (rather controversially) been described as 'simply outcrops of groundwater'. Many of the rivers in the UK are supplied mainly from groundwater sources, especially during the summer months when rainfall is characteristically low. The hyporheic zone is a critical interface between surface and subsurface waters in groundwater catchments. Here, the mixing of groundwater and surface water and the resulting biological and chemical reactions, may exert a lot of control on the water quality of the river and also its ecology: so much so that the hyporheic zone has been ascribed pollutant attenuating properties by some. Groundwater abstraction, effluent disposal and diffuse nutrient pressures - especially nitrogen - may all compromise the capacity of the hyporheic zone to influence the water quality of a river. Although quite a few researchers have recognised that the hyporheic zone has some special control on the river habitat, most have looked at it only from the perspective of the relationship between river water and the upper few centimetres of the sediments of the riverbed. They have ignored the fact that as well as downward flux from the river into the sediments of the riverbed there will also be upward flows from groundwater through the hyporheic zone and into the river. This research considers what happens to the chemistry of groundwater as it moves through the hyporheic zone and investigates the claim that the hyporheic zone can attenuate groundwater contaminants such as nitrate.

Event Image Changing Terrain: New Models for Humanities Graduate Study and Scholarly Communication
4:00 PM - 5:15 PM

The landscape of graduate study in the humanities is changing. Now more than ever, humanities scholars use a wide variety of platforms to collaborate with peers and to share their research with many kinds of audiences. Scholars are embracing an ever-broader range of intellectually stimulating careers in, around, and beyond the academy. At the same time, universities increasingly rely on contingent labor to fill teaching needs, making it increasingly difficult for recent graduates to join the ranks of the faculty. Given all of these changes, how can humanities graduate programs best equip their students not only to excel in their research and teaching, but also for the careers they pursue after completing their studies? Drawing on her work at the Modern Language Association, the Scholarly Communication Institute, and the Scholars’ Lab at the University of Virginia, Katina Rogers will discuss strategies to support professionalization, public scholarship, and career development across a wide array of possible outcomes.

Event Image Celebrating the Great Law: The Wilderness Act at 50
5:00 PM - 8:30 PM

On Sept. 3, 2014, the National Wilderness Preservation System—established and protected by the Wilderness Act of 1964—celebrates its 50th anniversary. We will be gathering to celebrate Wilderness—“ornery old wilderness, scratchy, sweaty, and distant, but sacred every step of the way”—and to commemorate the great law so central to its protection.  

This will not be an ordinary conference, full of dry presentations or heated policy debates. Instead, this will be a full-throated love song to wild country. We will bring together the most inspiring, insightful, and compelling Wilderness luminaries: writers, storytellers, advocates, historians, educators, photographers, and other admirers. We’ll even invite some musicians and poets. The most important invitee of all will be the public—those who make wilderness an important part of their lives, and those who simply take comfort in its existence.

Our goal will be to tell the story of the Wilderness movement over the course of the last 50 years, to rearticulate the ethos of the Wilderness community in light of that history, and to take a short moment to reflect on and appreciate the progress that has been made. The gathering will begin on Thursday evening with a Wilderness talk and slide show by nationally-renowned landscape photographer John Fielder. On Friday, the celebration will continue with a series of talks, vignettes, panels, readings, poems and songs. We’ll hear from some of the early activists who helped to found the Wilderness movement, and from some of the young people who will carry it forward.

In the end, we hope to leave with a fresh appreciation for the Wilderness and the great law enacted to protect it, and a renewed determination to continue to fight to preserve and enhance one of our most precious and sacred assets.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

Event Image Celebrating the Great Law: The Wilderness Act at 50
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

On Sept. 3, 2014, the National Wilderness Preservation System—established and protected by the Wilderness Act of 1964—celebrates its 50th anniversary. We will be gathering to celebrate Wilderness—“ornery old wilderness, scratchy, sweaty, and distant, but sacred every step of the way”—and to commemorate the great law so central to its protection.  

This will not be an ordinary conference, full of dry presentations or heated policy debates. Instead, this will be a full-throated love song to wild country. We will bring together the most inspiring, insightful, and compelling Wilderness luminaries: writers, storytellers, advocates, historians, educators, photographers, and other admirers. We’ll even invite some musicians and poets. The most important invitee of all will be the public—those who make wilderness an important part of their lives, and those who simply take comfort in its existence.

Our goal will be to tell the story of the Wilderness movement over the course of the last 50 years, to rearticulate the ethos of the Wilderness community in light of that history, and to take a short moment to reflect on and appreciate the progress that has been made. The gathering will begin on Thursday evening with a Wilderness talk and slide show by nationally-renowned landscape photographer John Fielder. On Friday, the celebration will continue with a series of talks, vignettes, panels, readings, poems and songs. We’ll hear from some of the early activists who helped to found the Wilderness movement, and from some of the young people who will carry it forward.

In the end, we hope to leave with a fresh appreciation for the Wilderness and the great law enacted to protect it, and a renewed determination to continue to fight to preserve and enhance one of our most precious and sacred assets.

Event Image Dissolving Discrimination: A Story of Dalit Movement in India
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Caste, a social-economic-cultural-religious construction has ruled the Indian minds for over three thousand years and have gradually been institutionalized. Caste continues to serve as the fabric of Indian society, co-existing with modernity and a profound and progressive legal framework. Often the differences in approach to address the issue have become contentious. Martin Macwan, founder of Navsarjan Trust, the prominent Indian organization and many other institutions in India, tells the story of how he and his colleagues have been successfully able to dissolve the caste discrimination, a blot on the global civil society. Part of the CAS Luncheon Series. Lunch will be provided.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Join Adjunct History Professor Peter Wood for a discussion about the wartime election of 1864—held 150 years ago this fall. The election has rightly been called the most remarkable and significant presidential contest in American history. Through a new generation of research, 1864 emerges as a key year during the nation’s most tumultuous decade, and the greatest confrontation of that fateful year involved ballots, not bullets The event is part of CU on the Weekend, which is free and open to the public.

5:30 PM

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts.

Seminar talk with Jonathan Kipnis, Professor of Neuroscience & Ophthamology, University of Virginia

Sept 9
4-5pm
MUEN E214

Talk title: T-cell Microglia Relationships in Healthy & Diseased Brain

Tissue homeostasis is achieved when a state of equilibrium is reached between two major processes: clearance of dying cells and generation of new ones. Numerous diseases are accompanied by an increase in death processes and a decrease in regenerative capacity, resulting in deterioration and malfunction of the tissue. Dead cells must be cleared to make room for new cells and to remove toxic compounds that the dying cells produce.

The effect of impaired phagocytic activity of brain professional phagocytes (microglia) and other tissue resident macrophages will be discussed here in the context of Rett syndrome and its potential implication to a wide variety of animal models for autism. We propose the microglia, in general, and phagocytic activity, in particular, as new targets for future therapeutic intervention for autism spectrum disorders.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!

Rich Landscapes of Learning: Exploring Core Competencies for MOOCs and Residential, Research-Based Universities

­

Learning is the central activity of the 21st century. It needs to be reconceptualized, nurtured, and supported to meet numerous intellectual and economic challenges by taking advantage of transformative theoretical frameworks and innovative technologies.

Massive, Open, Online Courses (MOOCs) are receiving world-wide attention as a means to revolutionize education. The excitement and hype around MOOCs is grounded in promises being disruptive, being free, and providing a totally new kind of learning experience. The attention for MOOCs has moved beyond academic circles. Neither panacea nor snake oil, MOOCs evoke serious questions that deserve informed debate grounded in the learning sciences complementing the existing discussions from economics and technology.

The presentation will analyze MOOCs as one component of a rich landscape for learning. In doing so, MOOCs can serve as a forcing function to identify and reflect on the core competencies of residential, research-based universities (such as CU-Boulder) in nurturing and supporting aspects of learning that cannot be easily addressed by MOOCs.

Gerhard Fischer is a professor (adjunct and emeritus) of Computer Science, a fellow of the Institute of Cognitive Science, and the director of the Center for Lifelong Learning and Design (L3D) at the University of Colorado Boulder. He is a member of the Computer Human Interaction Academy, a fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery, and a recipient of the RIGO Award of ACM-SIGDOC. His research has focused on new conceptual frameworks and new media for learning, working, and collaborating, human-centered computing, and design. His recent work is centered on social creativity, meta-design, cultures of participation, and rich landscapes for learning (including MOOCs).

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Associate Professor
Department of Psychology

Title:  Understanding the decision to learn

 

Abstract:  Any complete theory of human learning must explain not only what is gleaned from the information we experience, but also the capacity for our choices and actions to expose that information.  Interestingly, many experimental studies of learning and memory emphasize "passive" learning by limiting participants’ control over the information they experience at each point in time. In this talk, I will discuss recent work in my lab exploring how people gather information in "self-directed" learning environments - those where the learner is in control of what to learn about and when to learn it.  The primary aim of this research is to characterize the information sampling strategy that participants use to reduce their uncertainty, and to examine how self-directed learning influences acquisition of new knowledge.  The evidence presented in the talk suggests three key take-home points:  1.) people can learn faster when they can select and sequence learning episodes themselves, but this depends, in a dynamic way, on the structure of the to-be-learned concepts and the space of hypotheses that the learner considers 2.) people select information gathering strategies in an adaptive fashion which trades off their expected performance and implied cognitive effort and 3.) self-directed learning helps to enhance memory by helping learners coordinate stimulus presentation with their current preparatory or attentional state.  Implications of this work for education, instructional design, as well as the cognitive science of learning will be entertained.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!

What is Diversity in a STEM Classroom and How Do You Relate To It?
Valentina Iturbe-LaGrave, Graduate Teacher Program

Diversity is often thought of within the limitations of exterior, perceivable differences among people. This workshop explores Diversity as more than a binomial set of perceivable differences in order to understand that it is ubiquitous in unperceivable ways in our classrooms: from students’ personal experiences, learning styles, and linguistic backgrounds, become more attuned to Diversity and be a better teacher.

Event Image What Really Makes a Mind? A paired faculty discussion presented by the CU Art Museum
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

What really makes a mind? To the Buddha, the mind could be both a tool and an obstacle to enlightenment.  Later, in 17th century France, René Descartes deemed the human mind a controllable force that occasionally overwhelms the body. In the centuries since, many thinkers have pondered the nature of our brains, of perception, and of creativity.

Join the CU Art Museum in welcoming Christopher Braider, Dean of the College of Media, Communication and Information, and Raul Saucedo, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, for a paired discussion on what exactly is the ‘mind’ and how social forcespast and presenthave impacted our understanding of the human brain. 

Dr. Christopher Braider is the author of “The Matter of Mind: Reason and Experience in the Age of Descartes” (University of Toronto, 2012) and was awarded the Scaglione Prize for French and Francophone Studies by the Modern Language Association.

Dr. Raul Saucedo works primarily in contemporary metaphysics and related topics in logic and philosophy of science, and is working on research articles and a book manuscript defending the ontological priority of collectivity over individuality.

This program is organized in conjunction with the CU Art Museum exhibition ART/TEKNE: Part 3 Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential, an installation by Colorado-based artist Todd Siler on view September 6 – December 20, 2014.

Event Image Faculty Tuesday: Elizabeth Farr, harpsichord
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Continuing the theme of her recent program of preludes and fugues from Johann Sebastian Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I, Elizabeth Farr will now focus on the preludes and fugues of Book II of the same collection. Program notes will include commentary on the “affections of the keys,” a notion integral to Baroque-era composition and expression and especially germane to this body of repertoire.

Biography:
Elizabeth Farr specializes in the performance of keyboard music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. She has performed solo recitals on the harpsichord, organ and pedal harpsichord to critical acclaim throughout the United States and in Germany, including recent performances for the prestigious Klavier-Festival Ruhr. She also performs as a concerto soloist and basso-continuo player.

As a recording artist, Elizabeth Farr is recognized as an interpreter of Baroque keyboard repertoire and has garnered awards and favorable reviews throughout the world. She received the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik Bestenliste award for her recordings of Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de La Guerre’s Suites for Harpsichord and JS Bach’s Music for Lute-Harpsichord, the former having also been awarded the University of Colorado’s Eaton Faculty Award for achievement in the arts and humanities. Her recording of Peter Philips’ harpsichord works was the first to feature an historic Italian harpsichord built by Jerome de Zentis in 1658. The Absolute Sound (USA) selected her recording of William Byrd’s My Ladye Nevells Booke as Recording of the Issue, followed by the Supersonic award from Pizzicato music magazine (Luxembourg). Additional recordings are devoted to Jean-Henri D’Anglebert’s Suites for Harpsichord, JS Bach’s solo keyboard Concertos and Claude Balbastre’s Pièces de Clavecin. Her recordings for Naxos have been included in listings devoted to “definitive,” “essential,” “critics’ choice,” or “year’s best” recordings.

Elizabeth Farr holds degrees in harpsichord and organ performance from Stetson University, The Juilliard School, and the University of Michigan, having studied with Paul Jenkins, Vernon de Tar, and Edward Parmentier. Professor of harpsichord and organ at the University of Colorado, Dr. Farr also conducts the Early Music Ensemble, and teaches classes in Baroque performance practices and basso-continuo playing.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!
Troilus and Cressida class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. The best way to grow as a performer is to get a play up on its feet.

Dr. Paul Sutter, Associate Professor of History, CU-Boulder

“The Surprisingly Brief History of Sustainability”

While many of the key concepts that inform what we today call “sustain­ability” or “sustainable development” have been around for centuries, if not millennia, the widespread use of these terms is remarkably recent. Professor Sutter’s talk will examine both the deeper history of sustain­ability concepts and the reasons for the “surprisingly brief history” of these terms as keywords in national and international environmental politics.

CU Faculty, Staff and Students Invited - Space is limited

Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu for location and pre-circulated reading

Box lunch provided with RSVP

 

The Program in Jewish Studies welcomes South African-born author and journalist Benjamin Pogrund to the University of Colorado Boulder for a faculty and graduate student colloquium focused on his recent book Drawing Fire: Investigating the Accusations of Apartheid in Israel.

In this colloquium, we will discuss Pogrund’s argument against affixing the label of apartheid to Israel inside the Green Line of 1948/1967. Pogrund’s book outlines key foundational events to explain current attitudes, then explores contradictions found in the region, including discrimination against Israeli Arabs amongst Jews.  He deconstructs some of the criticisms of Israel and the boycott movement before arguing for two states, Israeli and Palestinian, as the only way forward for Jews and Arabs. 

 

Benjamin Pogrund, a journalist in South Africa for 26 years, was deputy editor of the Rand Daily Mail, a Johannesburg newspaper which was closed down because of its stand against apartheid. After a term of imprisonment in South Africa for his anti-apartheid activism, Pogrund relocated to Britain where he became chief foreign sub-editor of The Independent. He later served as editor of The World Paper, Boston USA. Internationally recognized, Pogrund has also written for Haaretz (Tel Aviv), Facta (Tokyo), and others. In 1997 he settled in Jerusalem where he founded the Yakar Center for Social Concern which promotes dialogue across political and ethnic lines. In May 2013 he was awarded the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Media Council in London on behalf of the Next Century Foundation for encouraging understanding of the Middle East and war-torn areas of the world.

Benjamin Pogrund

 

The Program in Jewish Studies welcomes South African-born author and journalist Benjamin Pogrund to the University of Colorado Boulder for a faculty and graduate student colloquium focused on his recent book Drawing Fire: Investigating the Accusations of Apartheid in Israel.

In this colloquium, we will discuss Pogrund’s argument against affixing the label of apartheid to Israel inside the Green Line of 1948/1967. Pogrund’s book outlines key foundational events to explain current attitudes, then explores contradictions found in the region, including discrimination against Israeli Arabs amongst Jews.  He deconstructs some of the criticisms of Israel and the boycott movement before arguing for two states, Israeli and Palestinian, as the only way forward for Jews and Arabs. 

 

Benjamin Pogrund, a journalist in South Africa for 26 years, was deputy editor of the Rand Daily Mail, a Johannesburg newspaper which was closed down because of its stand against apartheid. After a term of imprisonment in South Africa for his anti-apartheid activism, Pogrund relocated to Britain where he became chief foreign sub-editor of The Independent. He later served as editor of The World Paper, Boston USA. Internationally recognized, Pogrund has also written for Haaretz (Tel Aviv), Facta (Tokyo), and others. In 1997 he settled in Jerusalem where he founded the Yakar Center for Social Concern which promotes dialogue across political and ethnic lines. In May 2013 he was awarded the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Media Council in London on behalf of the Next Century Foundation for encouraging understanding of the Middle East and war-torn areas of the world.  

 

Pogrund has published extensively, writing three books about Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe, his personal friend Nelson Mandela, and the press under apartheid. He is co-editor of Shared Histories: A Palestinian-Israeli Dialogue.

While in Colorado, Pogrund will be serving as the Selichot guest speaker at BMH-BJ Congregation, Saturday, September 20 @ 8PM.

CS Colloquium: Aaron Clauset (University of Colorado, Boulder)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Computational Methods for Modeling and Analyzing Complex Networks

Networks provide a rich and mathematically principled approach for identifying and explaining patterns in structured data from complex systems. Interest in networks now spans nearly every scientific field, including computer science, molecular biology, physics, and the social sciences. However, it is also widely recognized that the structure of real-world networks is far more complex than simple models and statistics can capture. Large networks like the human genome or the Facebook social graph are so heterogeneous that simple methods can fail completely. In this talk, Clauset will describe work by his research group on developing rigorous methods for data-driven exploratory analysis and hypothesis-driven modeling in complex networks.

A key challenge in network science is the problem of accurately modeling why some pairs of genes or people or species are connected, but not others. Probabilistic generative models provide powerful approach to this problem, by transforming the complicated task of characterizing a network’s structure into the more familiar task of estimating and interpreting model parameters from observational data. This approach enables efficient and accurate methods for learning from both networks and their rich metadata, e.g., node attributes (types, location, status, etc.), edge weights and types, temporal ordering, and information cascades. As exemplars of this approach, Clauset will describe (i) two novel models, one that learns from edge-weighted networks and one that detects 'change points' in evolving networks, and (ii) one deep application to gene recombination in the malaria parasite.

To close, Clauset will briefly describe some of his work in other areas of computational biology and computational social science, which include pattern discovery in the global statistics of terrorism and war, large-scale patterns in ecology and evolutionary biology, and predictability in sports and online games.

BIO: Aaron Clauset is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and the BioFrontiers Institute at the University of Colorado Boulder, and is External Faculty at the Santa Fe Institute. He received a PhD in Computer Science, with distinction, from the University of New Mexico, a BS in Physics, with honors, from Haverford College, and was an Omidyar Fellow at the prestigious Santa Fe Institute.

He is an internationally recognized expert on network science and the empirical analysis of complex systems. His work has appeared in prestigious scientific venues like Nature, Science, PNAS, JACM, SIAM Review, and Physical Review Letters. Additionally, his work has been covered in the popular press by the Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Discover Magazine, New Scientist, Wired, the Boston Globe, The Guardian, and was the subject of an entire chapter in Nate Silver's 2012 bestseller "The Signal and the Noise."

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!
Troilus and Cressida class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. The best way to grow as a performer is to get a play up on its feet.

Title:  Strong expectations cancel locality effects: Evidence from Hindi

Abstract:  Expectation-driven facilitation (Hale, 2001; Levy, 2008) and locality-driven retrieval difficulty (Gibson, 1998, 2000; Lewis & Vasishth, 2005) are widely recognized to be two critical factors in incremental sentence  processing; there is accumulating evidence that both can influence processing difficulty. However, it is unclear whether and how expectations and memory interact. We first confirm a key prediction of the expectation account: a Hindi self-paced reading study shows that when an expectation for an upcoming part of speech is dashed, building a rarer structure consumes more processing time than building a less rare structure. This is a strong validation of the expectation-based account. In a second study, we show that when expectation is strong, i.e., when a particular verb is predicted, strong facilitation effects are seen when the appearance of the verb is delayed; however, when expectation is weak, i.e., when only the part of speech “verb” is predicted but a particular verb is not predicted, the facilitation disappears and a tendency towards a locality effect is seen. The interaction seen between expectation strength and distance shows that strong expectations cancel locality effects, and that weak expectations allow locality effects to emerge.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!
Troilus and Cressida class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. The best way to grow as a performer is to get a play up on its feet. In this class, we will tackle Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida, with a culminating performance on November 11. Students will work on cutting the play, developing characters, designing costumes and props, and even directing scenes. This class is designed for young actors who love to perform, and who want to learn more about the process of staging a play.
Shakespeare 2000 (ages 8-14) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. In this 10-week class, students will create adaptations of their favorite Shakespeare plays.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!
Troilus and Cressida class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Seminar talk with Charles Hoeffer, Assistant Professor, Institute for Behavioral Genetics (IBG), University of Colorado Boulder

Tuesday, Sept 23rd
MUEN, Room E214
4-5pm

Talk title: Understanding Genetic Sources of Neurodegeneration

Neurodegeneration' generally describes conditions typified by the progressive loss of neurons or neural function in brain or periphery. Neurodegenerative diseases afflict millions of people world-wide and by middle of the century are expected to become a significant global health burden. Many sources for neurodegeneration have been identified, including many genetically derived sources, however the underlying cellular lesions caused by many of these are poorly understood. Our lab has focused on studies aimed at two genetic sources of neurodegeneration. One of the genes we study, RCAN1, is linked to Down syndrome; the other, Tau, is linked to familial mutations involved in the onset of early dementia. Using animal models to mimic pathologies in human patients, we hope to unravel the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying these devastating disorders.

Event Image Painful Hope: A Discussion with Palestinian Peace Activist Ali Abu Awwad
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

The students of the 2014 Global Seminar to Israel and the West Bank, with support from the Program in Jewish Studies, welcome Palestinian peace activist Ali Abu Awwad for a discussion at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

Painful Hope: A Discussion with Palestinian Peace Activist Ali Abu Awwad
Tuesday, September 23 @ 6PM
Muenzinger E0046
Free and open to the public
Space is limited
Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu

Ali Abu Awwad will be sharing his personal story of struggle in Palestine as well as his mission to create nonviolent change and lasting peace in the region through dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians.

Ali currently lives in the West Bank under Israeli rule. He has a painful personal history with Israel, the IDF, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Although he and his family have experienced great loss, Ali has a powerful passion for creating peace through non-violence and fostering dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians. Along with other Israeli and Palestinian peace activists, he established an organization called Roots/Judur/Shorshim. The organization aims at creating deep unmediated dialogue with the hope of eventually breaking down the barriers that the conflict has built.

Currently finishing his book, Painful Hope, Ali Abu Awwad is today a leading Palestinian activist teaching others methods of non-violent resistance and reaching out to Palestinians and Jewish Israelis. Ali has appeared in several films such as Forbidden Childhood and Just Vision's Encounter Point and has toured the world telling his riveting story of militant activism, imprisonment, bereavement and discovery of the path of non-violent resistance, a story of personal transformation.

This event will feature a discussion with Mr. Awwad mediated by Dr. David Shneer, Director of the Program in Jewish Studies, Louis P. Singer Endowed Chair in Jewish History, and Professor of History and Religious Studies. The discussion will be followed by a question and answer period.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!
Troilus and Cressida class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. The best way to grow as a performer is to get a play up on its feet.

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!
Troilus and Cressida class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. The best way to grow as a performer is to get a play up on its feet. In this class, we will tackle Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida, with a culminating performance on November 11. Students will work on cutting the play, developing characters, designing costumes and props, and even directing scenes. This class is designed for young actors who love to perform, and who want to learn more about the process of staging a play.
Shakespeare 2000 (ages 8-14) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. In this 10-week class, students will create adaptations of their favorite Shakespeare plays. They will come up with concepts, write scripts, and then stage them. Together we will create new versions of Shakespeare’s classic stories, updating them for 2014. Students will present their creations for friends and family on the last day of class.

"Illusion and Reality: The Science of Perception" "The brain constructs the experience of reality using sensory information from the outside world combined with internal information from memory, fears, desires, and goals. Sometimes the experience of reality is distorted and results in so-called visual and auditory illusions. We will learn how the brain works by exploring the conditions under which certain visual and auditory illusions occur. Be prepared to have your reality distorted!"
Event Image TEDxBoulder - Rivers & Roads
5:00 PM - 9:00 PM

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

This year's TEDxBoulder - Rivers & Roads featured speakers: Steph Davis, Megan Feldman, Kim Coupounas, Joseph Logan, Hunter Ewen, Gina Williams, Gerry Valentine, Deborah Bowman, Dan Durda, Catie Webster, Bobby Stuckey, Ash Beckham and Alan Lewis.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin.

EATON HUMANITIES 1B80

5:00 PM

 

 

Professor Badger is a specialist in post-World War II US Southern political history. His most recent book, FDR: The First Hundred Days, was described by Prime Minister Gordon Brown as “a classic example of how a work of history can illuminate the issues we’re dealing with today”. Barack Obama's regime is said to be using FDR's New Deal as a possible model for economic regeneration and, selecting Professor Badger's book as his book of the year in 2008, Brown commented: "The imagination and humanity at the heart of some of the great New Deal innovations changed American politics for ever and shaped the future of progressive politics across the world."

Professor Badger did his undergraduate and masters degrees at Cambridge and taught for 20 years at Newcastle University, before returning to Cambridge as Paul Mellon Professor in 1992. He was the Andrew Mellon Visiting Professorship at Tulane University from January to May 2000. Among his books on modern US history are "The New Deal: The Depression Years, 1933-1940' and 'New Deal/New South'. He is currently writing a biography of Albert Gore Sr, father of former vice-president Al Gore.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy! This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!
Troilus and Cressida class (ages 12-18) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. The best way to grow as a performer is to get a play up on its feet. In this class, we will tackle Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida, with a culminating performance on November 11. Students will work on cutting the play, developing characters, designing costumes and props, and even directing scenes. This class is designed for young actors who love to perform, and who want to learn more about the process of staging a play.
Shakespeare 2000 (ages 8-14) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre. In this 10-week class, students will create adaptations of their favorite Shakespeare plays. They will come up with concepts, write scripts, and then stage them. Together we will create new versions of Shakespeare’s classic stories, updating them for 2014. Students will present their creations for friends and family on the last day of class.
