Event Image Community Roast (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A group for young adults seeking to make sense of the news and current events around the world from a Christian, and otherwise spiritual, perspective. Open-minded. No agenda.

International Coffee Hour (Multi-Day Event)

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.
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.

Event Image MAVEN Mars Orbit Insertion Open House
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission launched successfully on Nov. 18, 2013 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. After 10 months of travel, the spacecraft is preparing to make its most important maneuver of the mission, when its velocity will be decreased by over 1,200 m/sec in an effort to draw itself into the gravitational pull of the Red Planet.

Join us at LASP, as we celebrate this monumental occasion and watch as the CU-Boulder-led mission enters into orbit around Mars, where it will make unprecedented discoveries about Mars’ upper atmosphere and help solve the planet’s climate mystery. We’ll hear from mission scientists, who will update attendees on spacecraft status and guide us through the orbit insertion process in conjunction with the live NASA TV broadcast.

Admission is free and parking is free in lots surrounding the LASP Space Technology Building, although seating and capacity are limited. Light refreshments will be available.

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.

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.

Tuesday, Sept 23rd

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.

Syria, Iraq, Ukraine - it's easy for women to slip off the page, or to be shown only as weeping widows. But women are also activists, thinkers, organizers in every war zone. Paying attention to women makes any conflict more understandable and makes men's actions more visible too.

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.

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.

Speaker: Jessica Andrews-Hanna, Research Associate, Institute of Cognitive Science, University of Colorado Boulder

Title: Self-Generated Cognition and the Brain’s Default Network: Component Processes, Dynamic Control, and Clinical Relevance

Rather than being psychologically constrained to the present environment, humans have the remarkable capacity to transcend the here-and-now through the process of mental simulation. Adults spend nearly half their day engaged in self-generated thinking, yet this phenomena remains one of the most poorly understood aspects of human cognition. Self-generated cognition has the potential to help us confront future challenges, solve problems, and navigate our social world; at the same time, it can be associated with significant costs, impairing learning and hindering psychological well-being.  In this talk, I will discuss the factors that give rise to this range of adaptive and maladaptive consequences by drawing on multi-disciplinary research spanning psychology, neuroscience, and psychopathology. I will first showcase self-generated cognition as a complex and heterogeneous class of processes whose costs and benefits depend on multiple factors.  I will then present evidence that different aspects of self-generated cognition are supported by different components within a large-scale brain system called the “default network.” Here I will highlight the dynamic nature of the default network, emphasizing its interaction with executive control systems when regulating aspects of self-generated cognition.  Finally, I will conclude by proposing a neurocognitive model of dysfunctional self-generated cognition, considering populations for which thought content becomes polarized or network interactions become disrupted or imbalanced.  By distinguishing adaptive from maladaptive self-generated thinking at levels of brain and behavior, this work provides a scientific platform to help individuals harness the beneficial aspects of self-generated cognition and lead happier and more productive lives.

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.

All you need is a computer to participate. Are you unsure of your career direction? Do multiple interests make it hard to narrow down your choices? How do you identify the best fit for you? Get specific advice on brainstorming career choices, using online and other research tools, from Hallie Crawford, Certified Career Coach and Founder of HallieCrawford.com. If you are a recent grad trying to determine your career direction, or an experienced professional having difficulty determining a new path, this program is for you! Presenter Bio Finding the right job can be exciting, and sometimes very exasperating as well. I know, because "I've been there, done that". I was lost in my career and I jumped around from one job to another in a variety of fields, trying to find something that satisfied me. I know my parents were worried. Other people kept asking me what I wanted to do, but I couldn't answer them. I didn't know! As I moved from job to job, I felt like all I was doing was identifying what I didn't want to do instead of what I did want. It was all very frustrating. Somewhere along the way, it dawned on me that I probably wasn't the only one trying to find a fulfilling career. Others were undoubtedly experiencing the same thing. That's when it hit me! This is what I wanted to do! I wanted to help others avoid the struggle I was going through, especially young adults who were going through a career transition. I wanted to be a Career Coach. It took a few years, but I finally became a certified coach through the Coaches Training Institute. And I love it! I've found my passion. In 2002, I established HallieCrawford.com and since then, my practice has grown by leaps and bounds. This validated what I knew all along - that others were seeking to find that ideal job, that perfect career, that rewarding profession. I live in Atlanta, Georgia, with my son Vaughn. When I'm not helping clients in their career search, I'm out horseback riding or traveling.

CS Colloquium: Sriram Sankaranarayanan (University of Colorado, Boulder)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Invariance and Termination in Probabilistic Programs

ABSTRACT: Probabilistic programs involve standard imperative programs augmented with constructs for generating random values according to pre-specified distributions. As such, they arise in many domains including decision support systems, risk models, control systems, sensor fusion and randomized algorithms. In this talk, Sankaranarayanan examines verification and synthesis problems for probabilistic programs, highlighting recent work in his group that uses  martingales and concentration of measure inequalities to analyze the behavior of such programs. He shows how these mathematical ideas combine to provide us with probabilistic analogues of invariants and ranking functions. He will conclude with a brief discussion that contrasts the symbolic approach presented in this talk with ideas based on statistical hypothesis testing.

The talk will be mostly self-contained. All relevant concepts will be introduced during the talk.

BIO: Sriram Sankaranarayanan is an assistant professor of Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder. His research interests include automatic techniques for reasoning about the behavior of computer and
cyber physical systems. Sriram obtained a Ph.D. in 2005 from Stanford University, and worked subsequently as a research staff member at NEC research labs in Princeton, N.J. He has been on the faculty at CU-Boulder since
2009. Sriram has been the recipient of awards including the President's Gold Medal from IIT Kharagpur (2000), Siebel Scholarship (2005), the CAREER award from NSF (2009), Dean's awards for outstanding junior faculty (2012), outstanding teaching (2014), and the Provost faculty achievement award (2014).

Faculty Forum: What’s Research Got To Do With It?
Greg Johnson, Professor, Religious Studies

Professor Johnson discusses how to incorporate unfolding research experiences and findings in large
undergraduate classes, (1) to motivate students about topics at hand through providing on-the-ground
accounts of real-time issues and (2) through using research findings and publications to push students
to engage issues at the highest possible level of detail and theory. Johnson will argue that teachers
can connect with and lead students to exciting insights while also gaining from the experience in a
research capacity by means of students’ frequently profound and often unexpected insights.

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Embodied Teaching: What All Teachers Can Learn from Feminist Pedagogy
Michaele Ferguson, Associate Professor of Political Science and Faculty Associate in the
Women and Gender Studies Program

Many of us have a tendency to teach “from the neck up” – to focus on thinking and reasoning. Feminist pedagogy invites us to think about how our bodies appear to ourselves and others as gendered, raced, classed, and so on; how our bodies occupy and interact with the space of the classroom; and how our embodied – and not merely reasoned – responses can give us a great deal of information about what is working and what is not in our teaching.

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 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

This class is designed for young actors who love to perform, and who want to learn more about the process of staging a play.

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. 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.

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.

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!

The Making of Milarepa: Reading and Writing the Life of Tibet's Great Saint
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

[CAS Speaker Series] Andrew Quintman of Yale University will visit CU Boulder on Wednesday, October 1st to deliver a lecture on "The Making of Milarepa: Reading and Writing the Life of Tibet's Great Saint." Late in the eleventh century a wandering mendicant, the Yogin, starved himself in the frigid mountains of southern Tibet while undertaking ascetic practice. He was later recognized as a buddha famed for his poetry and songs of spiritual realization. Four hundred years later, a tantric adept emerged from the jungles of Tibet’s borderlands, naked, human entrails wound in his dangling dreadlocks. This adept, the Madman, composed a new and novelistic version of the Yogin’s life. The story it told of a great Tibetan saint would inspire new forms of religious literature across the Himalayan world, new styles of artistic production, new traditions of spiritual practice. In time, the Madman’s version of the Yogin’s life would become Tibet’s most famous book. In this lecture, Andrew Quintman explores the extraordinary life story of Yogin Milarepa composed by Madman Tsangnyön Heruka, tracing its historical formation, changing narrative voices, and enduring legacy across the region. Drawing on his recent book, The Yogin and the Madman: Reading the Biographical Corpus of Tibet’s Great Saint Milarepa, he presents a new way of reading The Life of Milarepa by foregrounding the unique relationship between Yogin and Madman together with the processes through which the narrative took shape.

Andrew Quintman is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Yale University, specializing in the Buddhist traditions of Tibet and the Himalaya. His areas of teaching and research include Buddhist literature and history, sacred geography and pilgrimage, and visual cultures of the wider Himalayan region. He is author of The Yogin and the Madman: Reading the Biographical Corpus of Tibet’s Great Saint Milarepa (Columbia University Press, 2014) and translator of the new English translation of The Life of Milarepa, published by Penguin Classics in 2010.

There will be a reception with Professor Quintman before his lecture at 3:30pm at the CU Art Museum. In tandem with his lecture, the CU Art Museum will be hosting an art exhibit by the Lhasa artist Gade on the theme of "pechas" or Tibetan texts, in which Gade creates surreal modern landscapes on traditional manuscript paper. Prior to the lecture, at 4:30pm, anyone is invited to visit the third floor of Norlin Library for a tour of our library display on Tibetan textual production and its translation and transmission to the West. The lecture takes place in the British Studies Room on the fifth floor of Norlin. The lecture will take place at 5pm in the British Studies Room on the 5th floor of Norlin Library. It is free and open to the public. 

These events celebrate the Tsadra "Translation and Transmission" Conference in Keystone, Colorado on October 2-5th. CAS is a partner for the conference.

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 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!

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 Our Town
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Wilder’s beloved, Pulitzer Prize-winning classic depicts life, love and death in the American town of Grover’s Corners. Small-town hopes and dreams expand into questions about meaning and purpose: How does one “realize life”? How do we take advantage of the time that we have? A poignant portrayal of how relationships and seemingly simple moments can provide the deepest echoes throughout our lives.

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.

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Being Responsive and Rigorous in Your Teaching
Tamara Milbourn, LEAD 2014-15, Education

The word “university” comes from the Latin universus meaning “together, all in one, whole, entire, relating
to all.” Many instructors experience tension between being inclusive in the classroom while enforcing
standards of the academic community. This workshop focuses on discussing issues related to being
responsive to students and at the same time building an academically rigorous classroom atmosphere.

Tuesday, Oct 7th
MUEN E214
4-5pm

Talk title: ³Role of Circadian Rhythm and REM Sleep for the Persistence of Hippocampus-Dependent Memory²

A striking feature of memory is the persistence of long-term memory (LTM) which can last for periods exceeding the lifetimes of proteins synthesized during the initial memory consolidation. Consolidation of

hippocampus-dependent memory depends upon Ca2+ activation of the cAMP/Erk MAP kinase (MAPK) /CRE (cAMP/cAMP/ Response Element) transcriptional pathway and protein synthesis. Stimulation of MAPK activity positively regulates CRE-mediated transcription  and protein synthesis  during memory formation. We hypothesize that activation of CRE-mediated transcription in the hippocampus during consolidation depends upon the calmodulin (CaM)-stimulated adenylyl cyclases (AC1 and AC8) which generate a cAMP signal necessary for the activation of MAPK. We discovered that the

cAMP/MAPK/ CRE transcriptional pathway undergoes a circadian oscillation in the hippocampus  and that disruption of this oscillation days after memory consolidation impairs memory persistence. Furthermore, we discovered that this memory consolidation pathway is activated during REM sleep. Moreover, we found that protein synthesis undergoes a diurnal oscillation in the hippocampus. We hypothesize that hippocampus-dependent memories are maintained over extended periods of time by periodic reactivation of CRE-mediated transcription and protein synthesis during the circadian cycle, during RE MAPK.  We hypothesize that this critical cAMP signal is generated by CaM-stimulated adenylyl cyclases. We propose that neurons stimulated during the acquisition of hippocampus-dependent memory may be periodically reactivated during the circadian cycle.

LGBTQ 2-Day Teacher Institute
4:30 PM - 7:00 PM

LGBTQ Teacher Institutes 

Research continues to suggest that many teachers feel unsupported in their efforts to create safe and affirming classrooms and schools for LGBTQ students. Our goal, in these institutes, is to change this!

You’re invited to attend a 2-DAY professional development TEACHER INSTITUTE, hosted by the School of Education at CU-Boulder, the focus of which is gender and sexual diversity.

In these institutes, we hope to create learning communities across grades, schools, and subjects in which we share our experiences and support one another as we take up topics of gender and sexual diversity in our classrooms and schools. In these gatherings, we'll collaborate, practice, role play, invent, reflect, and basically create amazing trajectories for ourselves and our colleagues. Here’s what these institutes are all about:

Collaborating with teacher colleagues in local districts, CU pre-service teachers, and faculty

Learning practical strategies for creating safe, inclusive, and affirming classrooms through both the social and academic curriculum (consistent with Educator Effectiveness standards)

Creating Standards-based LGBTQ-inclusive lesson plans

Becoming a leader in your school and a resource for your staff around these important topics

Receiving contact hour credit for licensure recertification from BVSD (We’re working on other districts!)

Eating yummy food with awesome educators

When: Tuesday, October 7 and Tuesday, October 14, 4:30-7:00 pm

Where: CU School of Education (room to be announced)

Space is limited, so please RSVP to at aqueerendeavor@colorado.edu by September 19, 2014.

Please include the following in your RSVP: Name, subject area, elementary/ secondary

* Feel free to email with any questions as well!*

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!

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.

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.

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)

Event Image Friday Forum & Workshop: Aesthetics of Flow Visualization: Art in Engineering *
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Faculty Forum: Aesthetics of Flow Visualization: Art in Engineering
Jean Hertzberg, Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering

Flow visualization contributes strong messages of science content within the community of fluid
dynamicists, but outside such a specialized community, the aesthetics of fluid flows carries the most
weight. As I present examples of four aesthetics – beauty, power, destruction, and oddness – each
is illustrated with examples drawn from flow visualizations from both the Flow Visualization course
(MCEN 4151) and sources on the web.

Title: Thinking on your Feet: Reinforcement Learning for Incremental Language Tasks

 

Abstract: In this talk, I'll discuss two real-world language applications that require "thinking on your feet": synchronous machine translation (or "machine simultaneous interpretation") and question answering (when questions are revealed one piece at a time).  In both cases, effective algorithms for these tasks must interrupt the input stream and decide when to provide output.

 

Synchronous machine translation is when a sentence is being produced one word at a time in a foreign language and we want to produce a translation in English simultaneously (i.e., with as little delay between a foreign language word and its English translation). This is particularly difficult in verb-final languages like German or Japanese, where an English translation can barely begin until the verb is seen. Effective translation thus requires predictions of unseen elements of the sentence (e.g., the main verb in German and Japanese, or relative clauses in Japanese, or post-positions in Japanese). We use reinforcement learning to decide when to trust our verb predictions. It must learn to balance incorrect translation versus timely translations, and must use those predictions to translate the sentence.

 

For question answering, we use a specially designed dataset that challenges humans: a trivia game called quiz bowl. These questions are written so that they can be interrupted by someone who knows more about the answer; that is, harder clues are at the start of the question and easier clues are at the end of the question. We create a recursive neural network to predict answers from incomplete questions and use reinforcement learning to decide when to guess.  We are able to answer questions earlier in the questions than most college trivia contestants.

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.

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.

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.
PhD Dissertation Title Deadline


PhD students must submit to the Graduate School a typed copy of the exact title of your dissertation.  This title will appear on your transcript.  You can mail it to us at 26 UCB, or e-mail it to us at gradinfo@colorado.edu.

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!

LGBTQ 2-Day Teacher Institute
4:30 PM - 7:00 PM

LGBTQ Teacher Institutes 

Research continues to suggest that many teachers feel unsupported in their efforts to create safe and affirming classrooms and schools for LGBTQ students. Our goal, in these institutes, is to change this!

You’re invited to attend a 2-DAY professional development TEACHER INSTITUTE, hosted by the School of Education at CU-Boulder, the focus of which is gender and sexual diversity.

In these institutes, we hope to create learning communities across grades, schools, and subjects in which we share our experiences and support one another as we take up topics of gender and sexual diversity in our classrooms and schools. In these gatherings, we'll collaborate, practice, role play, invent, reflect, and basically create amazing trajectories for ourselves and our colleagues. Here’s what these institutes are all about:

Collaborating with teacher colleagues in local districts, CU pre-service teachers, and faculty

Learning practical strategies for creating safe, inclusive, and affirming classrooms through both the social and academic curriculum (consistent with Educator Effectiveness standards)

Creating Standards-based LGBTQ-inclusive lesson plans

Becoming a leader in your school and a resource for your staff around these important topics

Receiving contact hour credit for licensure recertification from BVSD (We’re working on other districts!)

Eating yummy food with awesome educators

When: Tuesday, October 7 and Tuesday, October 14, 4:30-7:00 pm

Where: CU School of Education (room to be announced)

Space is limited, so please RSVP to at aqueerendeavor@colorado.edu by September 19, 2014.

Please include the following in your RSVP: Name, subject area, elementary/ secondary

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.

This class is designed for young actors who love to perform, and who want to learn more about the process of staging a play.

26th Annual Robert G. Athearn Lecture Series Welcomes Dr. Kate Brown
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

26th Annual Robert G. Athearn Lecture Series


The late Prof. Robert G. Athearn (1914–1983) was a professor of Western History at the University of Colorado at Boulder from 1947 until his retirement in 1982. An extraordinarily productive scholar, his publications included Westward the Briton (1953), Union Pacific Country (1971) The Coloradans (1976), The Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad: Rebel of the Rockies (1977), The Mythic West in Twentieth Century America (1986), and William Tecumseh Sherman and the Settlement of the West (reprint 1995).

Professor Athearn was one of the founders as well as past president of the Western History Association, and during his career held numerous positions on historical committees, academic societies, and editorial boards. His impact as a teacher was equally great, he instructed thousands of undergraduate students over the years, and trained a score of contemporary Western historians in the profession he loved. As part of his legacy, Dr. Athearn endowed a lectureship in the Department of History at the University of Colorado at Boulder to be held on topics in Western history.

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.

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

Faculty Forum: Education in ‘Root Fields’—the Benefits of Humane Learning in a Scientological World
Noel Lenski, Professor, Classics

Professor Lenski will explore the ongoing importance of the study of humanities and the arts in a world
that has become obsessed with science and technology. He will focus on three primary areas: the
ongoing importance of language learning and language use in a world that is and will remain linguistically
mediated; the importance of a connection to shared culture and shared methods of cultural
understanding for human fulfillment; and the ongoing superiority of humanistic learning and research
as a hermeneutic tool for success in our society.

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.
