Lecture/Seminar Chrystos - poetry reading 2013-03-04 10:00:00
Description

Chrystos is a Menominee two-spirit poet, warrior, writer, artist and "arrow in the throat of colonization."

Chrystos' poetry has been described by Gloria Anzaldua: "Her words slide into our throats, feed the hungry soul, fill the lost and homeless heart. Her voice binds into wholeness our severed selves with self-esteem. It calls away from the death of invisibility, insists that we be seen and accounted to, no longer banished, no longer vanishing. She leaves her howl inside us."

Lecture/Seminar The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars 2013-03-04 20:00:00
Description

 

Dr. Michael Mann

 

Distinguished Professor of Meteorology at Penn State University, with joint appointments in the Department of Geosciences and the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute (EESI). He is also director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center (ESSC).

A central figure in the controversy over human-caused climate change has been “The Hockey Stick,” a simple, easy-to-understand graph my colleagues and I constructed to depict changes in Earth’s temperature back to 1000 AD. The graph was featured in the high-profile “Summary for Policy Makers” of the 2001 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and it quickly became an icon in the debate over human-caused (“anthropogenic”) climate change. I will tell the story behind the Hockey Stick, using it as a vehicle for exploring broader issues regarding the role of skepticism in science, the uneasy relationship between science and politics, and the dangers that arise when special economic interests and those who do their bidding attempt to skew the discourse over policy-relevant areas of science. In short, I attempt to use the Hockey Stick to cut through the fog of disinformation that has been generated by the campaign to deny the reality of climate change. It is my intent, in so doing, to reveal the very real threat to our future that lies behind it.

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Public Lecture 2013-03-04 15:30:00
Description

Landsdowne Public Lecture

Monday, March 4th at 3:30 pm in the Social Sciences and Mathematics Building, Room A102

Professor Timothy Whitmarsh (University of Oxford)

Will present a lecture entitled "Religious Scepticism and Greek Drama"

Classical Athenian drama, many have convinced themselves, is a deeply religious form. This claim takes several varieties: for some its religiosity is bound to its very origins in ritual praxis, for others it is religious because of the festival context in which it was embedded, for others still it is the pietistic ‘message’ of the texts – many of which conclude with a reassertion of the gods’ power – that triumphs. In this lecture, we’ll explore a different dimension. Arguing that the religious framework actually legitimizes a more experimental approach to religion, we shall consider cases where positions that approach the ‘atheistic’ are canvassed – and, I shall argue, seriously proposed – in Euripides, Aristophanes, and even the supposedly priestly Sophocles.
