Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $210 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $210! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

The Inclusive Classroom - Considering How Classroom Structure Can Promote Equity
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Considering How Classroom Structure Can Promote Equity

Lisa Corwin, Assistant Professor, EBIO

Students enter into the classroom with different backgrounds, resources, and social capital at their disposal. This unequal distribution of resources can create inequities in the classroom that we, as instructors, may not be aware of. In this workshop we will explore what occurs when inequities exist in a learning environment and discuss how incorporating more classroom structure can alleviate some of these inequities. Workshop will be held in ATLAS 301.

Department Colloquium - Bill Henshaw
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Bill Henshaw, Dept. of Mathematical Sciences, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Over-coming fluid-structure instabilities for incompressible flows and light bodies
 
The added-mass instability has, for decades, plagued partitioned fluid-structure interaction (FSI) simulations of incompressible flows coupled to light solids and structures. Many current approaches require tens or hundreds of expensive sub-iterations per time-step. In this talk some new stable partitioned algorithms are described for coupling incompressible flows with (1) compressible elastic bulk solids, (2) thin structural beams and (3) rigid bodies. These added-mass partitioned (AMP) schemes require no sub-iterations, can be made fully second- or higher-order accurate, and remain stable even in the presence of strong added-mass effects. These schemes are implemented using moving and deforming overlapping grids with the Overture framework.
 
 
Short bio:
 
Bill Henshaw is the Margaret A. Darrin Distinguished Professor in Applied Mathematics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology. He has previously worked at the IBM T.J. Watson Reserach Center, Los Alamos National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His primary interests are in the numerical solution of partial differential equations and techniques for overlapping grids.

Bradley Tatar: Place-making, Landscape and Materialities: Whales and Social Practices
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Department of Geography Colloquium Series Presents:
"Place-making, Landscape and Materialities: Whales and Social Practices in Ulsan, Korea" Presentation by Bradley Tatar, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea
Co-sponsored by the Center for Asian Studies (CAS)
Refreshments at 3:15 PM; talk at 3:30 PM.


In the southeastern coastal city of Ulsan in Korea, people continue to defy the global taboo on eating whale meat, which they believe is an important social practice for local identity. The Nam-gu District in the City of Ulsan has created the Special Zone for Whale Culture as a spatial territory in which many divergent social practices related to whales are carried out. In this tourist zone, how are the elements of Ulsan whale culture invented, and how are they attached to a specific place? Using the concept of landscape, I argue that place-making practices are carried out to produce different kinds of whales as material realities. I analyze three of the many kinds of whales that are produced: the natural history whale, the whale as meat, and the whale as object of conservation. I conclude by arguing that these materialized whales are not separate, but relational entities which contribute to local identity through their enactment in the landscape.

Sensitivity and Bifurcation Analysis for a Differential-Algebraic Equation Model of a Microbial Electrolysis Cell

Microbial electrolysis cells (MECs) are a promising new technology for producing hydrogen cheaply, efficiently, and sustainably. The technology is based on microbial fuel cells in which bacteria oxidize organic substrates to generate current, decreasing electricity costs. MECs are more efficient than fermentation methods and can be fed fermentation effluent or cheap and readily available wastewater. However, to scale up this technology, we need a better understanding of the processes in the devices. In this effort, we have conducted a sensitivity analysis for a differential-algebraic equation (DAE) model of a batch-fed microbial electrolysis cell with an algebraic constraint on current.  This includes both differential sensitivity analysis and principal component analysis.  We hope to identify the stability of equilibrium points and study bifurcations, but this will have to be done numerically until solutions to the transcendental constraint are available.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Mini Law School 2017: Lifelong Learning Lecture Series for Non-Lawyers
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Have you ever wondered: How national monuments are designated and whether they can be undesignated? How a case gets to the Supreme Court and what they do with it once they get it? What power does an executive order have and how can it be reviewed? We will explore all of these topics and more in this fall's Mini Law School: Hot Topics. 

Mini Law School provides participants with a better understanding of important legal principles in key areas of the law. Taught by members of the CU Boulder law school faculty, the seven-week series provides a look into some of the hottest legal topics of our time. Open to all, this program is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity and is a great chance to get a mini taste of what law school is like. For fall 2017, we are excited to roll out a brand new Mini Law School curriculum, presenting topics that have not been offered previously. Each member of the Mini Law School Faculty will discuss “hot topics” in a different area of the law. The selected subjects cover some of the most pressing issue in the law today. Each week, a different topic is presented.

We will hold seven sessions on Tuesday evenings, Sept. 12 through Oct. 24. Colorado Law’s Mini Law School also will be livestreamed from Boulder to CU South Denver in Parker, Colorado, on the same dates and times. For those who neither Boulder nor Parker is convenient, we also have livestream and recorded viewing options. Participants selecting those options will receive the class materials and a link to the lecture weekly and can watch at their own pace and at the location of their choosing.

Physics Colloquium: Presented by Kyle Leach, Colorado School of Mines

Title: "The Quest for the New Standard Model: Searching for BSM Physics with Rare-Isotope Beams"

Presented by: Kyle Leach, Colorado School of Mines

Abstract: The development of the Standard Model (SM) has been one of the crowning achievements in modern physics, and is the cornerstone of current subatomic studies. Despite its success, the SM is known to be incomplete, and providing limits on possible physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) is crucial to our understanding of the natural universe. Although they are generally complex, atomic nuclei can be exploited as a laboratory for these studies through the use of rare-isotope beams (RIBs). The production of these short-lived, very exotic isotopes has opened new avenues of research in our search for BSM physics in the era of the LHC. This work is at the precision and sensitivity frontiers, and helps to bridge the gap between atomic, nuclear, and particle physics using novel, state-of-the-art detection techniques. In this talk, I will use these topics to highlight the significant role of the atomic nucleus in our ongoing search for additional generations of quarks, new descriptions of the weak interaction, and light dark matter. These studies play a critical role in providing the groundwork for our quest to develop the "New Standard Model".

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

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

We live in a success-obsessed world. Many of us prioritize or feel burdened by our careers at the expense of family, relationships, health, and spirituality. We fail to understand that success cannot be compartmentalized. When one area of our life suffers, all the other areas will follow suit sooner or later. If you want to be successful in life, and not spend all your time and energy working, you need to strive for balance. The good news is that you can design a harmonious life with 7 daily habits. Linzee Klinkenberg will help you guide through these simple and satisfying practices to empower you to create your best day. Lunch is provided. Registration is required.

Associate Professor of History, UCLA

CITY OF INMATES:
Conquest, Rebellion, & the Rise of Human Caging in Los Angeles

Thursday, September 28, 2017, 5:00 PM
Benson Earth Sciences Building, Room 180

Kelly Lytle Hernandez is an associate professor in the UCLA Department of History. She is one of the nation’s leading historians of race, policing, immigration, and incarceration in the United States. Her award-winning book, MIGRA! A History of the U.S. Border Patrol (University of California Press, 2010), explored the making and meaning of the U.S. Border Patrol in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, arguing that the century-long surge of U.S. immigration law enforcement in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands is a story of race in America. Her forthcoming book, City of Inmates: Conquest and the Rise of Human Caging in Los Angeles (University of North Carolina Press, 2017), is an unsettling tale that spans two centuries to unearth the long rise of incarceration as a social institution bent toward disappearing targeted populations from land, life, and society in the United States. It does so with six extraordinary stories detailing when, why, and how the dynamics of conquest made Los Angeles, California, the carceral capitol of the world. By the 1950s, she argues, incarceration was a complex and well-oiled machine of elimination targeting blacks, Natives, and Latinos. In the years ahead, the rise of mass incarceration amounted to mass elimination.

Event Image Above and Beyond: Alone. So Far...
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

If we know one thing about the universe, is that it's big. It's enormous. The pure vastness of our cosmos continues to captivate us. Among the multitudes of galaxies and stars, countless worlds exist - many of which, we believe, could harbor alien life. And yet, our searching has thus far found no trace of distant life-forms. Why is this? Is there anybody out there? In this talk we'll discuss this question famously dubbed the "Fermi Paradox." Tristan Weber will help us explore some of the possible explanations for why the stars seem so empty. If our search continues to turn up empty, what might that mean for our place in the universe?

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join CIRES Center for Science and Technology Policy Research for their 15th anniversary public event featuring a keynote address by Brian Deese, senior fellow at Harvard Kennedy School and former Obama administration senior advisor. Bringing perspectives gained in the White House inner circle and the center of major legislative and budget negotiations, Deese provides an insider’s outlook on subjects ranging from the future of healthcare and the economy to the future of our planet.

From restructuring the American auto industry to securing the Paris climate agreement, economic and clean energy expert Brian Deese was the president’s point person on some of the most historic undertakings of the Obama administration. During eight years that ran the gamut from financial crisis to momentous achievements in healthcare, environmental protection and bipartisan budget legislation, Deese rose to the position of senior advisor, counseling the president and shaping policy on conservation, energy, financial regulation, job creation and the economic impact of healthcare reform. A key driver of U.S. global leadership on climate change, Deese was responsible for engagement with China, India and other major economies and for implementing the Obama energy agenda at home and abroad. He acted as principal negotiator of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 and oversaw the Supreme Court nomination process of Judge Merrick Garland.

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Professor Jonathan Templin has been selected for the inaugural Robert L. Linn Memorial Lecture Award, a new award named in honor of "Bob" Linn who was an inspirational leader in the field of measurement and policy and professor at the University of Colorado Boulder and the University of California, Los Angeles for more than 40 years. The award was created by Linn’s wife, Joyce Linn, to honor early or mid-career scholars who exemplify insightful and interdisciplinary contributions to educational measurement and policy. The lecture will be held alternately at CU Boulder and UCLA.

Templin is associate professor of research, evaluation, measurement, and statistics and educational psychology at the University of Kansas. His research focuses on the development of psychometric and general quantitative methods, as applied in the psychological, educational, and social sciences. His lecture titled, "From Research to the Classroom (and Back): Bettering Assessment Practice and Policy," will review newer psychometric methods, both in theory and how they are currently used in practice, and set a vision for what could be possible when the full benefits of both policy and psychometrics are realized.

"
Building Capacity for the Social Sciences and Indigenous Communities in the Arctic"
Presentation by Dr. Colleen Strawhacker, Research Scientist, National Snow and Ice Data Center Refreshments at 3:15 PM; talk at 3:30 PM.

In this talk, Strawhacker will discuss her work with social scientists and Indigenous communities in the Arctic to build digital tools to ensure data and information are ethnically shared and managed for the future. As a result of the ‘open data’ movement, an increased focus on how data should be attributed and cited has become increasingly important. As data becomes reused in analyses not performed by the initial data creator, efforts have turned to crediting the data creator, such as data citation and metrics of reuse to ensure appropriate attribution to the original data author. The increased focused on metrics and citation, however, need to be carefully considered when it comes to social science data, local observations, and Indigenous Knowledge held by Indigenous communities. These diverse and sometimes sensitive data/information/knowledge sets often require deep nuance, thought, and compromise within the ‘open data’ framework, in order to consider issues of the confidentiality of research subject and the ownership of data and information, often in a colonial context. These cases include atlases of placenames held by elders in small Arctic communities, as well as databases of local observations of wildlife and sea ice in Alaska that are essential for sharing knowledge across multiple villages. These examples suggest that a more nuanced approach to understanding how data should be accredited would be useful when working with social science data and Indigenous Knowledge. Strawhacker will discuss conversations with communities in the Arctic, as well as her archaeological experience to build capacity for the social sciences in this region.

All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

CU on the Weekend: What do You Hear? Listening to Modernist Music
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

In all of the arts, modernism challenged aesthetic precepts and narrative conventions. In music, it presented radically new systems of pitch organization, ways of shaping musical time and types of musical sounds, resulting in musical styles called serialist, minimalist and textural.

Through this interactive presentation, Daphne Leong, associate professor of music theory, will offer a crash course in modernist music, which she describes as beautiful, fascinating, challenging, dramatic, invigorating and fun. She will discuss some of the notable features of pieces by Bartók, Schoenberg, Webern, Messiaen, Stockhausen, Carter, Babbitt, Reich, Penderecki, Ligeti and others—always inviting the audience to listen for what they hear, and how that can be informed by how the music works. The talk will end with a live performance of two pieces: Throw Down or Shut Up! by current composer Vineet Shende and a mystery piece that the audience will be invited to discover.

This presentation is part of the series “Musical Conversations,” presented by the Music Theory Department of the CU Boulder College of Music in collaboration with CU on the Weekend.

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

Mini Law School 2017: Lifelong Learning Lecture Series for Non-Lawyers
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Have you ever wondered: How national monuments are designated and whether they can be undesignated? How a case gets to the Supreme Court and what they do with it once they get it? What power does an executive order have and how can it be reviewed? We will explore all of these topics and more in this fall's Mini Law School: Hot Topics. 

Mini Law School provides participants with a better understanding of important legal principles in key areas of the law. Taught by members of the CU Boulder law school faculty, the seven-week series provides a look into some of the hottest legal topics of our time. Open to all, this program is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity and is a great chance to get a mini taste of what law school is like. For fall 2017, we are excited to roll out a brand new Mini Law School curriculum, presenting topics that have not been offered previously. Each member of the Mini Law School Faculty will discuss “hot topics” in a different area of the law. The selected subjects cover some of the most pressing issue in the law today. Each week, a different topic is presented.

We will hold seven sessions on Tuesday evenings, Sept. 12 through Oct. 24. Colorado Law’s Mini Law School also will be livestreamed from Boulder to CU South Denver in Parker, Colorado, on the same dates and times. For those who neither Boulder nor Parker is convenient, we also have livestream and recorded viewing options. Participants selecting those options will receive the class materials and a link to the lecture weekly and can watch at their own pace and at the location of their choosing.

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Event Image 3D Wireless: The Promise and Challenges of Next-Generation Space and Airborne Wireless Systems
1:00 PM - 6:30 PM

A wave of innovation in airborne and orbiting systems—from drones to new thousand-satellite constellations—poses difficult questions of who is in charge and how to coordinate increasingly complex operations to prevent harm. Communication platforms will be located at a range of altitudes from ground level to geostationary orbit and beyond and be governed by national and international bodies with different interests and expertise. The coordination of these systems to prevent both physical collision and radio interference is becoming exponentially more complex, both technically and institutionally.

In this conference, experts will address the promise and challenges of next-generation airborne and space wireless systems, specifically, the design and engineering challenge of creating devices and systems to realize the vision; policy challenge of creating a new regulatory framework that encompasses aeronautical, aviation and communications agencies; and measurements, operations and government regulations to ensure the effective and beneficial operation of the components and systems. The discussion will also explore new and old hazards, who is in charge of governing at both national and international levels and resolving conflicts between incumbents and new entrants.

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

BioFrontiers Institute presents the 2017 Butcher Award to Sir Shankar Balasubramanian, who will provide a lecture entitled Decoding Human Genomes on a Population Scale." He is the Herchel Smith Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Cambridge and senior group leader at the Cambridge Institute. He works on the chemistry, structure and function of nucleic acids.

Balasubramanian is a co-inventor of the leading next generation DNA sequencing methodology, Solexa sequencing (now Illumina) that has made routine, accurate, low-cost sequencing of human genomes a reality and has revolutionized biology. He has worked on the identification, elucidation and manipulation of non-coding genetic elements, particularly four-stranded structures called G-quadruplexes. His work on the intervention of nucleic acid function using small molecules has revealed a number of molecular mechanisms that can be exploited, e.g. to modulate the biology of cancer. His more recent contributions include the development of methods for sequencing the epigenetic DNA bases 5-methylcytosine, 5-hydroxymethylcytosine and 5-formylcytosine at single base resolution, as part of a broader investigation of the importance of wider, natural DNA alphabet. His collective contributions span fundamental chemistry and its application to the biological and medical sciences.

The thousands of marionette-like figures standing in formation testify to an administration that had achieved unprecedented military power. The First Emperor’s famous assemblage, however, was not the last terracotta army to be commissioned. His original assemblage inspired a long line of clay armies in the Western Han dynasty (202 BCE-9 CE). This presentation will examine these new army figurines and their relationship to the Qin precedent, reflecting on their unique style and considering what the armies reveal about warfare and politics in China’s first long-lasting empire. This lecture is part of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) lecture series. 

Allison R. Miller (Ph.D., Harvard University) is an assistant professor of Asian art history at Southwestern University, specializing in the art and archaeology of early China. Her research focuses on ritual architecture, court art (early Chinese jades, terracotta figurines), gifting and patronage, ornament, and early aesthetic theory. Miller offers broad surveys of East Asian art and architecture in addition to specialized courses on a diverse range of topics including: landscape art, contemporary art and architecture, and ancient Chinese civilization. Her work has been supported by fellowships and grants from the Fulbright Foundation and the Fairbank and Asia Centers at Harvard University, among others.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Cu Grow: Leading and Managing across Cultures
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Register

Managing increasing diversity in international business, or in any other working environment, is one of the challenges that globalization has introduced and that professionals need to face. The number of interactions that people of different cultural backgrounds have with one another has exponentially increased in the work place (and so is the number of conflict and, more generally, intercultural stress). Cultural variables in the working environment matter today more and more and must be understood regardless of the technical background of each professional. These are some of the reasons why the ability to lead and manage across cultures, whether abroad or at home, has become a must in order to have a successful career.

 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Knowing the basic concepts and variables at play to successfully lead and manage in multicultural contexts.
  • Becoming familiar with models to analyze multicultural dynamics at work
  • Understanding the “whats” and the “whys” of cultural differences in the working environment
  • Practicing how to solve and reduce intercultural conflicts
  • Learning tools to lead and manage across cultures

Simulating complex flows in the Earth mantle
 
On long enough time scales, the Earth mantle (the region between the rigid plates at the surface and the liquid metal outer core at depth) behaves like a fluid. While it moves only a few centimeters per year, the large length scales nevertheless lead to very large Rayleigh numbers and, consequently, very complex and expensive numerical
simulations. At the same time, given the inaccessibility of the Earth mantle to direct experimental observation implies that numerical simulation is one of the few available tools to elucidate what exactly is going on the mantle, how it affects the long-term evolution of Earth's thermal and chemical structure, as well as what drives and sustains plate motion.
 
I will here review the approach we have taken in building the state-of-the-art open source solver ASPECT (see
http://aspect.dealii.org) to simulate realistic conditions in the Earth and other celestial bodies. ASPECT is built using some of the most widely used and best software libraries for common tasks, such as deal.II for mesh handling and discretization, p4est for parallel partitioning and rebalancing, and Trilinos for linear algebra. In this
talk, I will focus on the choices we have made regarding the numerical methods used in ASPECT, and in particular on the interplay between higher order discretizations on adaptive meshes, linear and nonlinear solvers, optimal preconditioners, and approaches to scale to thousands of processor cores. All of these are necessary for simulations that can answer geosphysical questions.
Dylan Connor: Change and stability in the land of opportunity over the twentieth century
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Department of Geography Colloquia Series presents:
"
Change and stability in the land of opportunity over the twentieth century"
Presentation by Dylan Connor, post-doc with the Institute of Behavioral Science (IBS)

Over the twentieth century, it became more difficult for children born to poorer parents to climb the socioeconomic ladder. Declining upward mobility in the United States is now understood as a local problem, which could be addressed through place-based policy. Relatively little is known, however, of the malleability or historical evolution of places with respect to mobility outcomes. This article uses a new linked sample of over three million parents and children to study the historical geography of opportunity. This analysis reveals dramatic change in which places promoted and constrained upward mobility over the twentieth century. This changing geography of opportunity appears to have been partially precipitated by cycles of regional economic development. The territorial imprint of historical race relations, immigration and ethnic diversity, in contrast, are still evident in mobility differences today. This research suggests that strategies aimed at enhancing upward mobility should promote economic opportunity while also contending with more deeply rooted differences between places.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Event Image Ada Lovelace Day Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon
2:00 PM - 6:00 PM

October 10th is Ada Lovelace Day, an international day of celebration of women and women-identified people in STEM. Come to the Gemmill and help us increase the profile of women in STEM at our Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon. We’ll be adding and updating articles, as well as expanding stubs articles on the women in STEM that interest you. By expanding the awareness of women in STEM, we aim to create new role models to encourage more women and women identified people into STEM careers and support women and women-identified people already working in STEM. We’ll have snacks and coffee, as well as a list of women in STEM in need of an article or an update and easy reference material you can use to write your articles. We’ll also have library staff on hand to help you with your articles or Wikipedia’s style guide. Ada Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Her notes on the engine include what is recognized as the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine. As a result, she is often regarded as the first computer programmer.

Mini Law School 2017: Lifelong Learning Lecture Series for Non-Lawyers
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Have you ever wondered: How national monuments are designated and whether they can be undesignated? How a case gets to the Supreme Court and what they do with it once they get it? What power does an executive order have and how can it be reviewed? We will explore all of these topics and more in this fall's Mini Law School: Hot Topics. 

Mini Law School provides participants with a better understanding of important legal principles in key areas of the law. Taught by members of the CU Boulder law school faculty, the seven-week series provides a look into some of the hottest legal topics of our time. Open to all, this program is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity and is a great chance to get a mini taste of what law school is like. For fall 2017, we are excited to roll out a brand new Mini Law School curriculum, presenting topics that have not been offered previously. Each member of the Mini Law School Faculty will discuss “hot topics” in a different area of the law. The selected subjects cover some of the most pressing issue in the law today. Each week, a different topic is presented.

We will hold seven sessions on Tuesday evenings, Sept. 12 through Oct. 24. Colorado Law’s Mini Law School also will be livestreamed from Boulder to CU South Denver in Parker, Colorado, on the same dates and times. For those who neither Boulder nor Parker is convenient, we also have livestream and recorded viewing options. Participants selecting those options will receive the class materials and a link to the lecture weekly and can watch at their own pace and at the location of their choosing.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.
