  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: CDS Front Desk
  • Description: In "City Under One Roof," 2013 Lange-Taylor Prize Winner Jen Kinney combines photographs and writing to explore the shared spaces of Whittier, Alaska - population 200 - and to "illuminate the interplay between space and story. The images are the texture of the town, the stage upon which its folklore is set... which elevates the process of photographing from an act of description to a search for the foundations of mythmaking. How does myth relate to history? To the individual? To physical space?" The Lange-Taylor Prize is a $10,000 award given to encourage documentary work in the tradition of acclaimed photographer Dorothea Lange and writer and social scientist Paul Taylor, and supports documentary artists - working alone or in teams - whose extended fieldwork projects rely on the interplay of words and images. Kinney's project, which she plans to publish as a book, will weave together her photographs, edited oral histories, historical essays, and archival photographs. She is also writing a blog and producing short radio pieces.

  • Location: East Duke Parlors
  • Cost: free
  • Contact: Schwehm, Kelly
  • Description: In stark contrast to the so-called "tale of mutual ignorance" between Islam and psychoanalysis asserted by Fethi Benslama, El Shakry demonstrates that psychoanalysis was a tradition with deep and varied roots in the Egyptian postwar setting. This talk outlines one locally specific episode of the intersection of psychoanalysis and what I term the invention of the psychosexual subject in postwar Egypt, by exploring the linguistic terminology used for sex/gender, as well as discourses surrounding infantile and adolescent sexuality. The invention of the psychosexual subject, El Shakry argues, did not necessarily entail a simple shift of pleasure and desire away from the theological pastoral towards secular science and medicine as many have asserted. Professor El Shakry received her B.A. from the American University in Cairo, with a focus on the social sciences. She received her M.A. in Middle East Studies from New York University and her Ph.D. in History from Princeton University. She is the author of "The Great Social Laboratory: Subjects of Knowledge in Colonial and Postcolonial Egypt" (Stanford University Press, 2007), and articles on the history of the human sciences, gender politics, and urbanism in Egypt.

  • Location: Hudson Hall 125
  • Contact: Currin, Ellen
  • Description: The first half of the talk will review lessons learned during the design of the Arithmetic Cube, a VLSI design project that took place in the mid 1980¿s - when CMOS was the new technology - to the early 1990¿s. Design tools that were developed in support of the Arithmetic Cube will also be briefly described. Among the lessons learned during this period was ¿Let the needs of the design drive the design tool development.¿ In this way, the tools that are developed will be much more likely to be used by designers. The second half of the talk will project forward in the emerging technology space (beyond Moore¿s Law) to see how the lessons learned during the design of the Arithmetic Cube in the early days of CMOS can help guide design and design tools research and development in the future.

  • Description: "From crime waves to segregation: what we can learn from basic PDE" The use of PDE models to describe complex systems in the social sciences, such as socio-economic segregation and crime, has been popularized during the past decade. In this talk I will introduce some PDE models which can be seen as basic models for a variety of social phenomena. I will then discuss how these models can be used to explore and gain understanding of the real-world systems they describe. For example, we learn that a populations innate views toward criminal activity can play a significant role in the prevention of crime-wave propagation.

  • Description: Kiah Glenn "A Loud Silence: Sound In the Islamic Context and What it Means for Sex and Gender" Kiah Glenn will discuss the gender implications that the practice of calling the athan in Muslim communities. The athan, is the call to prayer, made five times a day in Muslim homes, mosques and communities. This call to prayer is made exclusively by Muslim men. This religious ritual is not only an example of sound being used to demarcate space and place, as understood by Isaac Weiner, but Glenn argues that it does other work as well, that the athan, because it is only made by men, also marks out gender ,gender lines, and their spaces.

  • Description: This talk investigates the crossing of two waves of moral panic in early 20th-century Poland: the mass exodus of poor peasants in search of jobs and a better life in North and South America and the drama of young female migrants' "white slavery."  Drawing on materials in diplomatic and police archives, Stauter-Halsted presents a more nuanced history of what was deplored as human trafficking, noting the greater individual agency exercised by the women involved and the complex relationships developing between these women and their mostly Jewish migration facilitators.

  • Description: The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University presents "Rauschenberg: Collecting & Connecting," offers a fresh look at 34 works of art that the artist reserved in his own collection. The exhibition, on view through Jan. 11, 2015, originated at Duke in collaboration with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in New York. Two gallery pavilions organized into eight sections also includes works by artists in the Nasher Museum¿s collection, with special emphasis on Soviet nonconformists and conceptual art of the 1980s and 1990s on view for the first time. The exhibition also features 24 works from the newly acquired gift of more than 50 works by San Francisco artist Bruce Conner. The exhibition includes drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, fresco, assemblage, photography and film. Professor Kristine Stiles, curator of the exhibition and France Family Professor of Art, Art History & Visual Studies at Duke, curated the exhibition with the assistance of Duke undergraduates Lauren Acampora, Katherine Hardiman, Emma Hart, Jacqueline Samy and Taylor Zakarin, who graduated with distinction for their work on the project. An online catalogue, featuring essays by Stiles and her students, is funded by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.

  • Location: Nasher Museum of Art
  • Contact: Livingston, Wendy Hower
  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Miró was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career. Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist's life, Miró: The Experience of Seeing will bring an extensive and illuminating body of Miró's work to North Carolina for the first time. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía). Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. At the Nasher Museum, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is made possible by Marilyn M. Arthur, the Estate of Dorothy Lander, Trent Carmichael, Drs. Victor and Lenore Behar, Deborah DeMott, Nancy A. Nasher and David Haemisegger, the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation, Parker and Otis, Lisa Lowenthal Pruzan and Jonathan Pruzan, Mindy and Guy Solie, Richard Tigner, Carolyn Aaronson, Eunice and Herman Grossman, Caroline and Arthur Rogers, and Angela O. Terry. This exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.

  • Contact: CDS Front Desk
  • Description: In "City Under One Roof," 2013 Lange-Taylor Prize Winner Jen Kinney combines photographs and writing to explore the shared spaces of Whittier, Alaska - population 200 - and to "illuminate the interplay between space and story. The images are the texture of the town, the stage upon which its folklore is set... which elevates the process of photographing from an act of description to a search for the foundations of mythmaking. How does myth relate to history? To the individual? To physical space?" The Lange-Taylor Prize is a $10,000 award given to encourage documentary work in the tradition of acclaimed photographer Dorothea Lange and writer and social scientist Paul Taylor, and supports documentary artists - working alone or in teams - whose extended fieldwork projects rely on the interplay of words and images. Kinney's project, which she plans to publish as a book, will weave together her photographs, edited oral histories, historical essays, and archival photographs. She is also writing a blog and producing short radio pieces.

  • Location: Physics 119
  • Contact: Brown, Monique
  • Description: "Cellular computation of Legendrian contact homology in demension 2." This is joint work with Mike Sullivan. We consider a Legendrian surface, $L$, in $R^5$ (or more generally in the 1-jet space of a surface). Such a Legendrian can be conveniently presented via its front projection which is a surface in $R^3$ that is immersed except for certain standard singularities. We associate a differential graded algebra (DGA) to $L$ by starting with a cellular decomposition of the base projection (to $R^2$) of $L$ that contains the projection of the singular set of $L$ in its 1-skeleton. A collection of generators is associated to each cell, and the differential is determined in a formulaic manner by the nature of the singular set above the boundary of a cell. Our motivation is to give a cellular computation of the Legendrian contact homology DGA of $L$. In this setting, the construction of Legendrian contact homology was carried out by Etnyre-Ekholm-Sullvan with the differential defined by counting holomorphic disks in $C^2$ with boundary on the Lagrangian projection of $L$. Equivalence of our DGA with LCH may be established using work of Ekholm on gradient flow trees. Time permitting, we will discuss constructions of augmentations of the cellular DGA from two parameter families of functions.

  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Miró was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career. Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist's life, Miró: The Experience of Seeing will bring an extensive and illuminating body of Miró's work to North Carolina for the first time. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía). Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.

  • Contact: CDS Front Desk
  • Description: In "City Under One Roof," 2013 Lange-Taylor Prize Winner Jen Kinney combines photographs and writing to explore the shared spaces of Whittier, Alaska - population 200 - and to "illuminate the interplay between space and story. The images are the texture of the town, the stage upon which its folklore is set... which elevates the process of photographing from an act of description to a search for the foundations of mythmaking. How does myth relate to history? To the individual? To physical space?" The Lange-Taylor Prize is a $10,000 award given to encourage documentary work in the tradition of acclaimed photographer Dorothea Lange and writer and social scientist Paul Taylor, and supports documentary artists - working alone or in teams - whose extended fieldwork projects rely on the interplay of words and images. Kinney's project, which she plans to publish as a book, will weave together her photographs, edited oral histories, historical essays, and archival photographs. She is also writing a blog and producing short radio pieces.

  • Contact: Bonnell, Meagan
  • Description: Join us for a lunch discussion featuring Laurence Binet, Director of Studies, Fondation MSF and internal historian for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). For over twenty years, Laurence Binet has been sifting through the MSF archives. Her in-depth research has been compiled into the Speaking Out Case Studies series, which provides primary source evidence of decisions taken by the group during critical moments such as the Ethiopian famine, Rwanda and Zaire during and after the genocide, Somalia in the early 1990s, Chechnya in the early days of Putin, and others. In a discussion moderated by Robin Kirk, faculty co-chair of the Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute, Binet will address the importance of the case studies for understanding the historical trajectory of MSF as an organization over time. How does a fast-moving and emergency-oriented NGO like MSF make decisions and record its changing policies, interests and growth? How did MSF's understanding of its own mission change over time? How did its experience in a particular crisis change the way it approached the next crisis? We'll explore these questions and more. A light lunch will be served.

  • Description: "Hillbert irreducibility for abelian varieties" If $K$ is the rational function field $K=\mathbb{Q}(t)$, then a polynomial $f$ in $K[x]$ can be regarded as a one-parameter family of polynomials over $\mathbb{Q}$. If $f$ is irreducible, then a basic form of Hilbert's irreducibility theorem states that there are infinitely many $t$ in $\mathbb{Q}$ for which the specialized polynomial $f_t$ is irreducible over $\mathbb{Q}$. In this talk we will discuss analogous theorems for an abelian variety $A/K$ regarded as a one-parameter family of abelian varieties over $K$. For example, we will exhibit $A$ which are simple over $K$ and for which there are only finitely many $t$ in $\mathbb{Q}$ such that the abelian variety $A_t$ is not simple over $\mathbb{Q}$.

  • Location: Physics 128
  • Contact: Paul, Cristin
  • Description: We live in a universe whose properties are remarkably well described by a very early epoch of accelerating expansion, termed inflation. One generic prediction of inflation is a relic background of stochastic gravitational radiation. These tensor metric perturbations leave a distinctive imprint in the polarization of the microwave background. In March 2014, the BICEP experiment at the South Pole announced the detection of this signal for the first time, although subsequent analysis cast doubt on whether polarized emission from dust in the Milky Way galaxy might be contaminating the signal. I will review the current state of observations and give an overview of upcoming observational efforts which will definitively distinguish the cosmological and galactic signals. If the BICEP signal has a significant component due to inflation, this opens the door to the remarkable possibility of detecting the gravitational radiation background directly with a space-based laser interferometer. Such a measurement would provide a precision probe of physics at energy scales a trillion times higher than those at terrestrial accelerators. Faculty Host: Tom Mehen. Refreshments will be served before and after the event in Physics room 128.

  • Location: Gross Hall 330
  • Contact: None
  • Description: 12noon lunch and lecture ¿Perspectives in Machine Learning¿ 3:30-4:30pm Seminar reception following Tumors consist of genetically diverse subpopulations of cells that differ in their response to therapy and their metastatic potential. The short read sequencing commonly used (and on the verge of becoming clinical practice) to characterize tumor heterogeneity only provides the allelic frequencies of the tumor somatic mutations, not full genotypes of individual cells. I will describe my lab¿s efforts to recover these full genotypes by reconstructing the tumor¿s evolutionary history. We do this by fitting subpopulation phylogenies to the allele frequency data. In some circumstances, a full reconstruction is possible but often multiple phylogenies are consistent with the data. We have developed a number of methods (PhyloSub, PhyloWGS, treeCRP) that use Bayesian inference in non-parametric models to distinguish ambiguous and unambiguous portions of the phylogeny thereby explicitly representing reconstruction uncertainty. Our methods incorporate simple somatic mutations (single nucleotide variants and small indels) as well as copy number variations; have excellent results on real and simulated data; and can take as input allele frequencies from single or multiple tumor samples where these frequencies are estimated using either targeted or whole genome sequencing.

  • Location: Physics 119
  • Contact: Brown, Monique
  • Description: "Sequences of curves with growing gonality" Given a smooth irreducible complex curve $C$, there are several isomorphism invariants one can attach to $C$. One invariant is the genus of $C$, that is, the number of handles in the corresponding Riemann surface. A subtler invariant is the gonality of $C$, that is, the minimal degree of a dominant map from $C$ of $\mathbb{P}^1$. A lower bound for either invariant has diophantine consequences when $C$ can be defined over a number field, but the ability to give non-trivial lower bounds depends on how $C$ is presented. In this talk we will consider a sequence $C_1,C_2,\ldots$ of finite unramified covers of $C$ and give spectral criteria for the gonality of $C_n$ to tend to infinity.

  • Description: In this half-hour artist talk, CDS instructor MJ Sharp reviews her artistic output of nearly 30 years to discover the subtle thread of reckoning with the patriarchy that runs through it all. From early photographs of her father and her niece, which she later realized were "emotional self-portraits," to coverage of the women's martial arts movement of the 1980s, to her more recent habit of photographing at night "which she experiences as nourishing and empowering rather than frightening, as the societal norm would have it," MJ will explore how photography, with its inherent ambiguity, softens what would normally be a screed into a more nuanced and layered critique. Meet MJ Sharp, CDS Undergraduate Education Director Christopher Sims, and students from CDS and the Duke Union for Media and Arts student group (DUMA), who will be on hand to provide information about their respective programs.

  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Miró was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career. Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist's life, Miró: The Experience of Seeing will bring an extensive and illuminating body of Miró's work to North Carolina for the first time. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía). Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. At the Nasher Museum, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is made possible by Marilyn M. Arthur, the Estate of Dorothy Lander, Trent Carmichael, Drs. Victor and Lenore Behar, Deborah DeMott, Nancy A.

  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: CDS Front Desk
  • Description: In "City Under One Roof," 2013 Lange-Taylor Prize Winner Jen Kinney combines photographs and writing to explore the shared spaces of Whittier, Alaska - population 200 - and to "illuminate the interplay between space and story. The images are the texture of the town, the stage upon which its folklore is set... which elevates the process of photographing from an act of description to a search for the foundations of mythmaking. How does myth relate to history? To the individual? To physical space?" The Lange-Taylor Prize is a $10,000 award given to encourage documentary work in the tradition of acclaimed photographer Dorothea Lange and writer and social scientist Paul Taylor, and supports documentary artists - working alone or in teams - whose extended fieldwork projects rely on the interplay of words and images. Kinney's project, which she plans to publish as a book, will weave together her photographs, edited oral histories, historical essays, and archival photographs. She is also writing a blog and producing short radio pieces.

  • Location: Gross Hall 330
  • Contact: Brown, Monique
  • Description: "Median Selection Subset Aggregation for Parallel Inference" For massive data sets, efficient computation commonly relies on distributed algorithms that store and process subsets of the data on different machines, minimizing communication costs. Our focus is on regression and classification problems involving many features. A variety of distributed algorithms have been proposed in this context, but challenges arise in defining an algorithm with low communication, theoretical guarantees and excellent practical performance in general settings. We propose a MEdian Selection Subset AGgregation Estimator (message) algorithm, which attempts to solve these problems. The algorithm applies feature selection in parallel for each subset using Lasso or another method, calculates the ¿median¿ feature inclusion index, estimates coefficients for the selected features in parallel for each subset, and then averages these estimates. The algorithm is simple, involves very minimal communication, scales efficiently in both sample and feature size, and has theoretical guarantees. In particular, we show model selection consistency and coefficient estimation efficiency. Extensive experiments show excellent performance in variable selection, estimation, prediction, and computation time relative to usual competitors.

  • Location: Teer 203
  • Contact: None
  • Description: This talk will discuss three engineering design concepts in protein hydrogels that can be exploited to improve their mechanical performance: hierarchical structuring, topological entanglement, and chain folding/aggregation. Using these strategies, we demonstrate the ability to produce stiff, tough, adhesive, and extensible gels, and also to modulate all of these advanced mechanical properties in response to stimuli such as temperature or mild oxidation. Theories of polymer physics can be applied to explain the structural and molecular origins of the mechanical response, and the promise of many of the materials is demonstrated for cell culture and tissue toughening. Finally, we show that the incorporation of biofunctional protein sequences into such artificial gels can recapture the biological specificity and interactions of the nuclear pore gel.

  • Location: Gross Hall 103
  • Contact: Bowes, Vickie
  • Description: ABSTRACT: Attitudes toward risk play an important role in economic behavior, but how these attitudes change following large disruptive events remains unclear. This is largely due to persistent problems of selective exposure, mortality, and migration in these contexts. This study explores the impact of exposure to an unanticipated natural disaster, the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, on attitudes toward risk using exogenous variation in exposure for a sample representative of the pre-disaster population. The results suggest that personal physical exposure to the disaster and a loss of liquid assets both lead to a temporary decrease in observed risk aversion, especially for the poor. The impact increases with the intensity of exposure, as measured by post-traumatic stress experienced in the immediate aftermath. The findings suggest that post-disaster assistance programs should provide support consistent with many survivors' greater willingness to assume economic risk (i.e., business capital, job training).

  • Location: Gray 220
  • Contact: None
  • Description: In this paper Prof. Engelke explores conceptions of happiness and well-being among secular humanists in Britain. Based on a year of fieldwork on the British Humanist Association, and its associated local groups, he argues that happiness for the humanists is both the promise and demand of enlightenment, of an appeal to reason over and against what they see as the irrationality of religion. To be happy is to be secular. What such ¿ethnography of enlightenment¿ suggests is the need to pay attention to the particularities of reason, as both a value and a virtue. Yet contrary to the ways in which a certain stereotype of the Enlightenment as the ¿Age of Reason¿ crowds out emotion and sentiment, Engelke investigates how humanist practice suggests otherwise. Matthew Engelke is a Professor and Governor of the London School of Economics. He is the author of A Problem of Presence: Beyond Scripture in an African Church, which won the 2008 Geertz Prize for Anthropology of Religion and the 2009 Turner Prize for Ethnographic Writing, and God¿s Agents: Biblical Publicity in Contemporary England. He is co-editor, most recently, of ¿Global Christianity, Global Critique¿ (with Joel Robbins), a special issue of South Atlantic Quarterly. He has run Prickly Paradigm Press with Marshall Sahlins since 2002, and was editor of the Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute from 2010-2013.

  • Location: Duke Chapel
  • Cost: $36; $20; $15 Age 30 and under; $10 Duke students
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Founded ten years ago, the young Belgian vocal ensemble Vox Luminis have quickly earned a reputation among choral music aficionados for their fervent dedication to renaissance and baroque repertoire, their exquisite tuning and blend, and their clarity of sound. In 2012, the ensemble won Gramophone Recording of the Year for their release of Heinrich Schütz's Musikalische Exequien, a masterwork of 17th-century polyphony. Schütz's requiem forms half of Vox Luminis' program in the contemplative and soaring setting of Duke Chapel. The evening's second part is a rare opportunity to hear the motets of the extended Bach clan. J.S. Bach himself curated the work of his uncles, and in Vox Luminis' interpretation of this brilliant family's compositions, their sound is "warm and resonant -- they sing this 300-year-old music with the freshness and ardor of true believers" (The Independent).

  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Miró was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career.

Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía).

Energy efficient upgrades often cost more upfront, but save money and the help the environment in the long run. Unfortunately, consumers are often short-sighted and make inefficient choices. Hardisty will introduce an adaptive, iterative framework to tackle this problem, combining the insights of economics, psychology, and anthropology. He will then present a series of studies demonstrating ways to nudge consumers towards more energy efficient options, using various labeling techniques to make long-term costs more salient. This talk is part of the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and the University Program in Environmental Policy seminar series featuring leading experts discussing a variety of pressing environmentally focused topics.

  • Location: LSRC D106
  • Contact: Zoss, Angela
  • Description: This paper explores the implications of location-based and marker-based augmented reality for creative digital humanities practice in the public sphere. I will focus on augmented reality systems as a way to place historical and cultural annotations in real-time dialogue with the lived experience of real-world spaces, places, and objects. I will show how digital heritage AR projects draw upon traditional approaches to annotating and representing urban places and built artifacts, as well as from contemporary digital mapping, multimedia production techniques, and virtual worlds and games. I'll touch of each of these areas in turn as part of an investigation of this emergent "medium" of expression, drawing upon collaborative case-study projects focused in Venice, Italy; Durham, North Carolina; and Barcelona, Spain. I will also touch upon the concept of the augmented reality marker as a fluid site of annotation, and, in the wake of enhanced computer vision and ubiquitous computing, the implications for markerless annotation systems.

  • Description: "On the Road to Insulin Resistance: Modeling Oxidative Stress-Mediated Dysfunction in Skeletal Muscle" Insulin resistance, a major factor in type 2 diabetes development, is a systemic defect characterized by reduced intracellular insulin signaling. Although there are many proposed causes of insulin resistance, the precise mechanisms that influence its long-term progression remain unclear. In this talk, we develop mathematical models to study the hypothesized role of oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction in skeletal muscle insulin resistance. Simulation results suggest that a perfect storm of environmental and genetic factors leading to oxidative stress can confer protection on the individual cell via insulin resistance.

  • Location: East Duke 204D
  • Contact: Olds, Lisa
  • Description: Karen Lewis, Barnard College, Columbia University - Iris Einheuser Memorial Lecture "Elusive Counterfacutals" I offer a novel solution to the problem of counterfactual skepticism: the worry that all contingent counterfactuals without explicit probabilities in the consequent are false. I argue that a specific kind of contextualist semantics and pragmatics for would- and might-counterfactuals can block both central routes to skepticism. One, it can explain the clash between would- and might- counterfactuals as in: (1) If you had dropped that vase, it would have broken. and (2) If you had dropped that vase, it might have quantum tunneled to China. Two, it can explain why counterfactuals like (1) can be true despite the fact that quantum tunneling worlds are among the most similar worlds. I further argue that this brand of contextualism accounts for the data better than other existing solutions to the skeptical problem.

The service celebrates the Church's continuing communion with these men and women and memorializes the recently deceased. The early church followed the Jewish custom that a new day began at sundown; thus feasts and festivals of the church were observed beginning on the night before. The night before All Saints (or All Hallows') became known as All Hallows' Eve, or Halloween. Each year, Duke Chapel celebrates All Hallows' Eve with the Choral Vespers Ensemble leading a candlelight worship service at 10:30 PM on October 31. Guests may park in the Bryan Center parking garage @ 125 Science Drive, which doesn't take money after 11:00 PM. Please call Andrew at 919-681-9488 for more information.

  • Location: Nasher Museum of Art
  • Contact: Livingston, Wendy Hower
  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Miró was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career. Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist's life, Miró: The Experience of Seeing will bring an extensive and illuminating body of Miró's work to North Carolina for the first time. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía). Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. At the Nasher Museum, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is made possible by Marilyn M. Arthur, the Estate of Dorothy Lander, Trent Carmichael, Drs. Victor and Lenore Behar, Deborah DeMott, Nancy A. Nasher and David Haemisegger, the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation, Parker and Otis, Lisa Lowenthal Pruzan and Jonathan Pruzan, Mindy and Guy Solie, Richard Tigner, Carolyn Aaronson, Eunice and Herman Grossman, Caroline and Arthur Rogers, and Angela O.

  • Description: In "City Under One Roof," 2013 Lange-Taylor Prize Winner Jen Kinney combines photographs and writing to explore the shared spaces of Whittier, Alaska - population 200 - and to "illuminate the interplay between space and story. The images are the texture of the town, the stage upon which its folklore is set... which elevates the process of photographing from an act of description to a search for the foundations of mythmaking. How does myth relate to history? To the individual? To physical space?" The Lange-Taylor Prize is a $10,000 award given to encourage documentary work in the tradition of acclaimed photographer Dorothea Lange and writer and social scientist Paul Taylor, and supports documentary artists - working alone or in teams - whose extended fieldwork projects rely on the interplay of words and images. Kinney's project, which she plans to publish as a book, will weave together her photographs, edited oral histories, historical essays, and archival photographs. She is also writing a blog and producing short radio pieces.

The Amernet is Quartet in Residence at Florida International University; its founding violinist, Juilliard graduate Marcia Littley, is a native of Greenville, NC. The concert begins with Mozart's homage to Bach, the Adagio and Fugue in C Minor, K. 546, and continues with Tchaikovsky's String Quartet No. 1 in D Major, op. 11, featuring a haunting Andante Cantabile that moved Tolstoy to tears. In the second half, the Ciompi join forces with the Amernet for the premiere of a new work for double string quartet by Carl Schimell, a 2008 Duke Ph.D. and professor at Illinois State University. The Ciompi and the Amernet round out the evening together with the brashly modern Octet for Strings, Op. 11, composed by a nineteen-year-old Shostakovich.
