  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: CDS Front Desk
  • Description: Renowned conflict photographer Lynsey Addario, a MacArthur Genius Grant recipient, made her first trip to Afghanistan in 2000 to document the lives of women under the Taliban. Addario has returned many times, always training a close eye on women's lives in all areas of Afghan society: culture, politics, education, employment, and domestic life. Much has changed--the same stadium where the Taliban performed public executions now hosts events for both sexes--but Afghanistan remains a country where it is extremely difficult to photograph women because of cultural and societal taboos. The body of work in "Veiled Rebellion" is the result of Addario's 2009 commission by "National Geographic" for a comprehensive photo essay depicting the many facets of women's lives in Afghanistan. On view February 9¿April 18, 2015

  • Location: LSRC A158
  • Cost: free
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Trust-a relational, conditional, action-inducing judgment-has become central to the controversies over shale resources and hydraulic fracturing. The lack of it poses a problem for companies intending to access land, acquire operations permits, build infrastructure, and, ultimately, participate in the energy commodity chain. Using a case study from northern Canada, Kate Neville, a post-doctoral fellow in Duke's Nicholas School of the Environment, will link three factors of unconventional oil and gas developments-scale and pace, risk and uncertainty, and visibility-with two broad trends in trust: skepticism about and divisions concerning the validity of scientific evidence and mistrust of consultative processes and political decision-making. 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: Friedl - Fredric Jameson Gallery
  • Contact: None
  • Description: The department of African and African American Studies invites you ro join us for a public lecture by Professor Katherine McKittrick. The talk will be followed by a Q & A. Light refreshments provided. Paper Abstract: This paper is a relational conversation nested in black studies, science studies of blackness and race, and black creative text. The discussion will address how the social production of biologically determinist racial scripts¿which extend from a biocentric conception of the human¿can be dislodged by bringing studies of blackness in/and science into conversation with autopoetics, black Atlantic livingness, weights and measures, and poetry (specifically M. NourbeSe Philip's Zong!). The underlying purpose of this paper is to think about how engaging interdisciplinarity and forging relational knowledges assists in anti-colonial academic research and teaching while also disrupting anti-black biocentric scripts. The event is co-sponsored by Women's Studies, Center for North American Studies, the Franklin Humanities Institute, and the Department of Literature.

  • Contact: Brown, Monique
  • Description: "Where Are You Going to Go When the Volcano Blows?" We discuss one approach to determining the hazard threat to a locale due to a large volcanic avalanche. The methodology employed includes large-scale numerical simulations, field data reporting the volume and runout of flow events, and a detailed statistical analysis of uncertainties in the modeling and data. The probability of a catastrophic event impacting a locale is calculated, together with a estimate of the uncertainty in that calculation. By a careful use of simulations, a hazard map for an entire region can be determined. The calculation can be turned around quickly, and the methodology can be applied to other hazard scenarios.

Addario has returned many times, always training a close eye on women's lives in all areas of Afghan society: culture, politics, education, employment, and domestic life. Much has changed--the same stadium where the Taliban performed public executions now hosts events for both sexes--but Afghanistan remains a country where it is extremely difficult to photograph women because of cultural and societal taboos. The body of work in "Veiled Rebellion" is the result of Addario's 2009 commission by "National Geographic" for a comprehensive photo essay depicting the many facets of women's lives in Afghanistan.

  • Description: Richard's research talk, open to Duke graduate students and other campus constituents, will cover the importance of documenting biodiversity in Madagascar, with a case study focusing on the mouse lemur. It will be held at the "Beach House" at the Duke Lemur Center at noon. Documenting biodiversity is essential for the study of processes of species diversification, the assessment of conservation priorities, and conservation management decisions. Nowhere is this more urgent than Madagascar, a model region of species diversification, with a unique and increasingly threatened fauna and flora. The mouse lemurs of Beza Mahafaly illustrate both the challenge and the biological interest of the task, with morphological and molecular data suggesting different conclusions about the number of species present and, above all, telling us that we still only know half the story.

  • Location: Duke North, Room 2002 , Duke University Hospital
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Lunch provided at NOON. Talk begins at 12:10 pm. Historians have generally described autism as a syndrome that was "discovered" in 1943, remained a rare categorical diagnosis through the 1970s, and then was expanded into a "spectrum" in the 1980s. This talk will argue instead that the meaning and boundaries of autism have been contested from the beginning. It will explore how debates over autism intertwined with those over schizophrenia, and how race, class, and education played into the diagnosis in complex ways that would make the diagnosis more visible in some populations than in others. Jeffrey Baker, MD, PhD, a medical historian, has concentrated on medical technology, ethics and child health. He is currently engaged in a project examining the history and changing definitions of autism. Dr. Baker directs the History of Medicine Program in the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities & History of Medicine at the Duke University School of Medicine, where he also teaches in the curriculum. On the national level, he chairs the Historical Archives Advisory Committee to the Pediatric History Center for the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and edits a quarterly historical feature in the journal Pediatrics. In 2005 he co-edited Dedicated to the Health of All Children, a 75th year anniversary history of the AAP.

Along with her work at the Tel Aviv U, Biletzki has also traveled widely, as a visiting scholar/professor at, among others, Cambridge University, Harvard University, and MIT. Her publications include books and articles on Ludwig Wittgenstein, Thomas Hobbes, analytic philosophy, political thought, digital culture, and human rights. Outside academia, Biletzki has been active in the peace movement and in several human rights projects in Israel for almost four decades. During the first intifada she was one of the founders (and in charge of communications) of the peace movement, "The Twenty-First Year," a group devoted to promoting civil objection to the Occupation. In 1997-1998 Biletzki helped establish the human rights movement ¿Open Doors¿ which worked on the problems of administrative detention in Israel. She has also been active as one of the leaders of Hacampus Lo Shotek "The Campus Is Not Silent" at Tel Aviv University, and is on the board of FFIPPI-Faculty for Israeli-Palestinian Peace. She was chairperson of the board of B'Tselem, the Israeli Information center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories, during the second intifada (2001-2006). In 2005 she was chosen as one of "50 most influential women in Israel" by Globes, the Israeli business monthly, and was nominated among the "1000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize."

  • Description: This workshop offers an overview of the elements of data documentation, from a research project's inception to the dissemination and archiving of data. Effective data management is a key element in the success of almost any social science research project, and maintaining thorough, detailed documentation is a vital part of the data management process. The workshop will examine the types of information that should be documented, the different forms documentation can take, and the varying and different audiences that use data documentation. Topics to be discussed include the creation of project documentation such as codebooks, annotated measures, and data narratives, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of each type of documentation. The workshop will also discuss the importance of documentation at each stage of the research process as well as the problems that can be encountered when proper documentation does not exist.

  • Location: Physics 298
  • Contact: Solis, Jennifer
  • Description: Hybrid approaches based on relativistic hydrodynamics and transport theory have been successfully applied for many years for the dynamical description of heavy ion collisions at ultrarelativistic energies. In this talk a new viscous hybrid model employing the hadron transport approach UrQMD for the early and late non-equilibrium stages of the reaction, and 3+1 dimensional viscous hydrodynamics for the hot and dense quark-gluon plasma stage is discussed. This approach includes the equation of motion for finite baryon number, and employs an equation of state with finite net-baryon density to allow for calculations in a large range of beam energies. The parameter space of the model is explored, and constrained by comparison with the experimental data for bulk observables from SPS and the phase I beam energy scan at RHIC. The favored parameter values depend on energy, but allow to extract the effective value of the shear viscosity coefficient over entropy density ratio $\eta/s$ in the fluid phase for the whole energy region under investigation. The estimated value of $\eta/s$ increases with decreasing collision energy, which may indicate that $\eta/s$ of the quark-gluon plasma depends on baryochemical potential $\mu_B$.

Addario has returned many times, always training a close eye on women's lives in all areas of Afghan society: culture, politics, education, employment, and domestic life. Much has changed--the same stadium where the Taliban performed public executions now hosts events for both sexes--but Afghanistan remains a country where it is extremely difficult to photograph women because of cultural and societal taboos. The body of work in "Veiled Rebellion" is the result of Addario's 2009 commission by "National Geographic" for a comprehensive photo essay depicting the many facets of women's lives in Afghanistan.

  • Location: John Hope Franklin Center 240
  • Contact: Vargas-Tonsi, Amy
  • Description: In the past quarter of a century, the academy has witnessed an explosion of interest in the political theory of Carl Schmitt (1900-1985). For some on the Left, Schmitt offers resources for a critique U.S. imperialism, the narrow spectrum of liberal democracies, and the idealism of deliberative democracy. This lecture uses Schmitt's biography and political theory to highlight and criticize recent Schmitt appropriations on the political Left. It argues that Schmitt, or Schmittianism, as a leftist project is historically incoherent. The theorist of fascism and the ideologist of Nazi Lebensraum is simply not worth the tendentious stretching and pulling necessary to turn him into a progressive and emancipatory egalitarian thinker. Schmitt offers no new vision for the contemporary Left.

  • Description: "Local Langlands correspondence and the exterior and symmetric square root numbers for GL(n)" We will discuss the notion of Artin root numbers attached to an n-dimensional continuous Frobenius-semisimple complex representation of the Weil-Deligne group and show their equalities with those defined by Langlands-Shahidi method through local Langlands correspondence for GL(n) and the exterior and symmetric square representation of the L-group GL(n,C) of GL(n). The proof is a robust deformation argument using local-global techniques, complemented with suitable asymptotic expansions for partial Bessel functions inspired by certain generalized Shalika germ expansions of Jacquet and Ye. This is a joint work with J. Cogdell and T.-L. Tsai.

  • Contact: Weinbaum, Carolyn
  • Description: About 40,000 children are born with heart defects every year. In order to treat these conditions we must gain a comprehensive understanding of heart formation, including the very first steps taken by heart cells in early embryos. We study this question in the model organism Ciona intestinalis. Ciona embryos are very simple both cellularly and genetically and yet they are closely related to the vertebrates, using many of the same heart genes as human embryos. This simplicity allows us to observe the exact behavior of individual heart cells and study how heart genes influence these behaviors. Our goal is to use what we learn in Ciona to guide heart research in other model organisms such as frogs, chicken and mice, eventually providing the framework required for the diagnosis and treatment human heart defects.

  • Location: LSRC B101 (Love Auditorium)
  • Contact: Alcaro, Anna
  • Description: Richard will give a campus-wide lecture starting at 4:30 on the role of community-based engagement in conservation efforts in Madagascar and beyond. Community-based engagement has become a major goal for conservation efforts in Madagascar and elsewhere. But who is "the community"? What does "engagement" actually mean? What role does the state have in these activities? Drawing on over thirty years of experience in grass-roots conservation at Beza Mahafaly in southwest Madagascar, this culture will argue that case-based answers to these questions have an important contribution to make in developing a strategic approach to conservation.

Topics are prepared beforehand and are decided entirely according to the interest of those willing to participate. The goal of these study circles and discussions is to create an open, inviting environment where one may have the opportunity to explore questions about Islam ranging from the deepest concerns of spirituality and religious practice to the everyday questions/ concerns. Halaqas are open to all regardless of religious affiliation.

  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: CDS Front Desk
  • Description: Renowned conflict photographer Lynsey Addario, a MacArthur Genius Grant recipient, made her first trip to Afghanistan in 2000 to document the lives of women under the Taliban. Addario has returned many times, always training a close eye on women's lives in all areas of Afghan society: culture, politics, education, employment, and domestic life. Much has changed--the same stadium where the Taliban performed public executions now hosts events for both sexes--but Afghanistan remains a country where it is extremely difficult to photograph women because of cultural and societal taboos. The body of work in "Veiled Rebellion" is the result of Addario's 2009 commission by "National Geographic" for a comprehensive photo essay depicting the many facets of women's lives in Afghanistan. On view February 9¿April 18, 2015

AND Title: Mining Text Networks Speaker: Professor David Banks, Dept of Statistical Science, Duke University Abstract: Working with MaxPoint, we obtained the full text of all 1,509 U.S. political blog posts in 2012, as well as all links from one blog to another. This provided a dynamic text network, which we analyze through a combination of an evolving topic model and a dynamic network model, so that network structure improves topic discovery and the learned topics help to predict network change.

  • Location: Gross Hall 330
  • Contact: None
  • Description: In a wide spectrum of problems in science and engineering that includes hyperspectral imaging, gene expression analysis, and metabolic networks, the observed data is high-dimensional and can be modeled as arising from an unknown mixture of a small set of unknown shared latent factors. Our approach is based on a natural separability property of the shared latent factors. Our separability property posits that every latent factor contains at least one component that is dominant in that factor. We first establish that this property is not only natural but an inevitable consequence of high-dimensionality, and satisfied by the estimates produced by popular nonparametric Bayes approaches. We show that geometrically these dominant latent factors can be associated with extreme points in a suitable space. We leverage this geometric insight to develop a suite of efficient algorithms for a diverse set of latent variable problems. The proposed random-projections-based algorithm is naturally amenable to a low communication-cost distributed implementation that is attractive for modern web-scale distributed data mining applications. We then establish statistical and computational efficiency guarantees for learning in high-dimensional latent variable models. This is joint work with Weicong Ding & Prakash Ishwar.

  • Location: Bryan Research 103
  • Contact: Weinbaum, Carolyn
  • Description: Jeanne Lawrence¿s interests and background bridge the areas of human clinical genetics and developmental epigenetics in the regulation of chromosomes. Her lab has long developed approaches for visualizing single genes and RNAs within individual cells and has published extensively on compartmentalization of the mammalian cell nucleus, showing the cell-type specific organization of endogenous genes, RNAs, and proteins with specific nuclear sub-compartments. Her lab is specifically interested in non-coding RNAs, which included their demonstration that XIST RNA is a novel nuclear RNA that ¿paints¿ the inactive X chromosome, where it induces a host of heterochromatin modifications, and her recent work investigating how this unique RNA binds and restructures the chromosome. The Lawrence lab has also studied other long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), including NEAT1 RNA, which provides precedent for an ¿architectural RNA¿ that forms the foundation for a cytological-scale structure, nuclear paraspeckles. Dr. Lawrence's work includes studies of heterochromatin formation/loss and changing nuclear structure in cancer cells and during programming and reverse programming of human ES and iPS cells.

  • Location: Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium Side B
  • Contact: Krieger, Katie
  • Description: Streaming Live from NCSU in Schiciano B One of the most exciting areas in colloid research is the control of interparticle interactions to generate new structures. The ease of tuning interactions, size, shape and composition has made these nano- and micrometer sized particles appealing probes for a number of fundamental studies. I will describe how my group has developed synthetic materials consisting of chains of patterned magnetic colloids that have rigidity and length specificity. These chains have demonstrated capability for folding, self-assembly, and specific chemical recognition. A key obstacle to assembling these and other materials is understanding the fundamental chemistry and physics of the assembly processes. Our chains are comprised of paramagnetic particles that have been linked together with DNA. This is classic bead-spring-bead model that is often used to describe polymer chains. I will describe the formation mechanism and stability of these DNA-linked magnetic particle chains. I will also describe a model that describes the total energy landscape that describes the inter-particle interactions and provides a workable theory toward the optimization of experimental parameters in synthesizing more stable and reliable colloidal assemblies.

  • Description: Applied econometrics, known to aficionados as 'metrics, is the original data science. 'Metrics encompasses the statistical methods economists use to untangle cause and effect in human affairs. Through accessible discussion and with a dose of kung fu-themed humor, Josh Angrist presents the essential tools of econometric research and demonstrates why econometrics is exciting and useful. The five most valuable econometric methods, or what the authors call the Furious Five¿random assignment, regression, instrumental variables, regression discontinuity designs, and differences in differences¿are illustrated through well-crafted real-world examples. Josh Angrist is the Ford Professor of Economics at MIT, a co-director of MIT¿s School Effectiveness and Inequality Initiative, and a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. Angrist received his B.A. from Oberlin College and completed his Ph.D. in economics at Princeton in 1989. He taught at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Harvard before coming to MIT in 1996. His research interests include the economics of education, the labor market, and econometric methods for program and policy evaluation. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and The Econometric Society. Please join us for a reception beginning at 5 p.m.

  • Location: Smith Warehouse - Bay 4, C106 "PhD Lab"
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Hailed as "The Great Israeli Novel" and winner of the prestigious Bernstein Prize, Assaf Gavron's latest novel,The Hilltop, is a monumental and daring work about life in a West Bank settlement from one of Israel's most acclaimed young novelists. By turns serious and satirical, The Hilltop brilliantly skewers the complex, often absurd reality of life in Israel, the West Bank settlers, and the nation's relationship to the United States, and makes a startling parallel between today¿s settlements and the kibbutz movement of Gabi and Roni's youth. Rich with humor and insight, Assaf Gavron's novel is the first fiction to grapple with one of the most charged geo-political issues of our time, and he has written a masterpiece. We'd like you to join us for supper and a discussion of his novel, how he understands the act of writing fiction about politically controversial topics, and how he positions his work in a global literary arena. Thursday, March 5th, 7:00pm, the FHI seminar room. Dinner will be served. Please RSVP to Serena.Elliott@duke.edu

Addario has returned many times, always training a close eye on women's lives in all areas of Afghan society: culture, politics, education, employment, and domestic life. Much has changed--the same stadium where the Taliban performed public executions now hosts events for both sexes--but Afghanistan remains a country where it is extremely difficult to photograph women because of cultural and societal taboos. The body of work in "Veiled Rebellion" is the result of Addario's 2009 commission by "National Geographic" for a comprehensive photo essay depicting the many facets of women's lives in Afghanistan.

  • Location: LSRC D106
  • Contact: Zoss, Angela
  • Description: With the growing amount of data available at our fingertips, effective and efficient scientific visualization is becoming increasingly important in modern society. How we display data in reports, presentations, and publications and communicate our science to the public through visuals is now a more crucial skill than ever. In this presentation we will discuss what makes an effective figure or graphic, as well as how this changes depending on the type of data being visualized and the audience/purpose the graphic is targeted at. While we generally aim for simple graphical representations, we will also touch on examples that display data in multiple dimensions and how to create simple graphics for large datasets. These ideas will be introduced in terms of a set of "best practices" for visualization that can be applied to any discipline. We will end with a discussion of open-source visualization tools, web-based interfaces, and analytical software to support visual analysis and presentation.

  • Location: Physics 119
  • Contact: Brown, Monique
  • Description: "The Hopfield Barrier in eukaryotic gene regulation" John Hopfield pointed out, in his seminal paper on kinetic proofreading, that if a biochemical system operates at thermodynamic equilibrium there is a barrier to how well it can achieve high-fidelity in transcription and translation. Hopfield showed that the only way to bypass this barrier is to dissipate energy and maintain the system away from equilibrium. Eukaryotic gene regulation uses dissipative mechanisms, such as nucleosome remodelling, DNA methylation and post-translational modification of histones, which are known to play a critical regulatory role but have been largely ignored in quantitative treatments. I will describe joint work with my colleague Angela DePace in which we use the recently-developed, graph-theoretic ¿linear framework¿ to show that the sharpness with which a gene is turned ¿on¿ or ¿off¿ in response to an upstream transcription factor is limited if the regulatory system operates at equilibrium, even with arbitrary degrees of higher-order cooperativity. In contrast, if the regulatory system is maintained away from equilibrium, substantially higher degrees of sharpness can be achieved. We suggest that achieving sharpness in gene regulation exhibits a Hopfield Barrier, and uncover, along the way, a new interpretation for the ubiquitously used, but poorly justified, Hill function.

  • Description: Professor Ken Oye (MIT) and Professor Arti Rai (Duke) will discuss the challenges and opportunities in shifting the way the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and its counterparts around the world, regulate pharmaceutical products. Can and should we move from a one-time decision to approve a drug in general, to a sequential process of partial approvals with continued monitoring and learning over time? How can our regulatory systems incorporate continued learning, as new technologies and their impacts emerge? This event is one in the series of "Laws that Learn" speakers. Co-sponsored by the Center for Innovation Policy at Duke Law, the Rethinking Regulation program at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke. Lunch will be provided. If you plan to attend, please R.S.V.P. to Amber Diaz Pearson at amber.diaz@duke.edu. For additional information, please contact Professor Jonathan Wiener at 919-613-7054.

  • Location: Baldwin Auditorium
  • Cost: $38; $32; $15 Age 30 and under; $10 Duke students
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Virtuoso pianist Vladimir Feltsman was banned from performing in his native Russia for eight years after he tried defecting in 1979, but he has made up for this long period of silence since immigrating to the United States three decades ago. Feltsman sets a formidable standard with his vast repertoire, "an effortless yet Herculean technique, and an even more formidable ability to stretch a piece to its stylistic limits and beyond" (San Diego Union-Tribune). Feltsman opens with the Haydn Piano Sonata No. 31, an impeccably-crafted showpiece containing one of the composer's finest Adagios. Schubert's first completed sonata, D. 537, anticipates Liszt with its extreme contrasts of serenity and storminess. The high point of the evening comes with two grand works by Liszt. The Ballade No. 2 is amongst Liszt's finest works and contains a beautiful, quasi-operatic love theme. Liszt's Bénédiction de Dieu dans la solitude evokes the transcendence of love over death. The evening closes with Scriabin's Vers la Flamme, a masterful work in which the mystical composer evokes a fiery apocalypse. For complete program, click "more information."

  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street

  • Contact: CDS Front Desk
  • Description: Renowned conflict photographer Lynsey Addario, a MacArthur Genius Grant recipient, made her first trip to Afghanistan in 2000 to document the lives of women under the Taliban. Addario has returned many times, always training a close eye on women's lives in all areas of Afghan society: culture, politics, education, employment, and domestic life. Much has changed--the same stadium where the Taliban performed public executions now hosts events for both sexes--but Afghanistan remains a country where it is extremely difficult to photograph women because of cultural and societal taboos. The body of work in "Veiled Rebellion" is the result of Addario's 2009 commission by "National Geographic" for a comprehensive photo essay depicting the many facets of women's lives in Afghanistan.

  • Location: Baldwin Auditorium
  • Cost: $38; $32; $15 Age 30 and under; $10 Duke students
  • Contact: None
  • Description: J.D. Souther and Carrie Rodriguez -- a celebrated pair of Texas-born singer/songwriters -- share a double-bill at Baldwin Auditorium. A principal architect of the Laurel Canyon sound, the Amarillo-reared Souther produced era-defining classics for Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, and The Eagles. In addition, Souther put out a series of celebrated solo records in the late '70s before going on a lengthy hiatus from the record business. Now based in Nashville, he returned to making records in 2008; JazzTimes described his new material as "whip-smart, adventurous, seductive, and shot through with the sublime longing that characterizes Souther's finest work. And his voice -- one of the most plaintive and soulful in rock 'n' roll -- has never sounded so immediate and so powerful." Born and bred in Austin and schooled at Berklee, Carrie Rodriguez -- a songwriter, singer, and fiddle player -- has emerged as one of the most compelling new voices in American roots music. "Hailed by Lucinda Williams, recruited by Alejandro Escovedo, and nurtured by Lyle Lovett" (Boston Globe), Rodriguez -- the daughter of a fine Texas songwriter -- keeps good company. She has recorded eight exceptional records in as many years, prompting The New Yorker to write, "Rodriguez creates beautiful music that is always slyly smart, which in turn makes it more beautiful." These two superb musicians, who first collaborated in 2012 at the Aspen Songwriters Festival, come together again at Duke Performances.
