  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Photographer Myra Greene has often used the human body--primarily black and brown ones, often her own--to explore issues of difference, beauty, and memory. In conversations with white friends, she realized that they had very different notions of racial identity than her own; in one pivotal exchange, a friend remarked that he really didn't think about whiteness at all. "I had never considered this was possible," says Greene. "My White Friends" was born out of this revelation. The project's "racial identity portraits" are co-constructions with Greene's friends that allow them to "respond to the idea of being imaged for their race," she says. Her goal is thoughtful dialogue about how we describe and think about racial identity: "I want conversations, not categories." Greene will give an artist's talk and sign copies of her book of the same name on April 9, 6-9 p.m.

  • Location: Physics 128
  • Contact: Paul, Cristin
  • Description: ** Please note this event is on MONDAY not Wednesday. ** The non-locality of quantum many-body systems, and hence their information content, can be quantified by entanglement measures. For ground states of condensed matter systems, I will discuss how the entanglement scales with the subsystem size, and how it behaves under time-evolution after a sudden change of system parameters (quench). The available number of degrees of freedom in a quantum many-body system grows exponentially with the system size. However, the scaling behavior of the entanglement indicates that the quantum states of interest exhaust only a much smaller number of effective degrees of freedom. This is exploited in non-perturbative simulation techniques based on so-called tensor network states, which are a way to parametrize relevant effective degrees of freedom and are particularly valuable for strongly-correlated regimes. I will describe how this approach can be employed to simulate systems of all particle statistics in order to study ground states, thermal states, and non-equilibrium phenomena. Besides explaining the main ideas, I will highlight applications of the techniques to quantum magnets and ultra-cold atomic gases in some of my projects and outline further plans and ideas. Faculty Host: Harold Baranger. Refreshments will be served after the event in room 128.

  • Description: Film Screening: "Night Scene" (Cui Zi'en, 2004, 75 min, China, in Mandarin w/ English subtitles, Color, DVD, mature content). -- Introduced by Prof. Carlos Rojas, Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. -- Q&A to follow with director Cui Zi'en (in Chinese, with English translation)! // Combining documentary and fictional elements, "Night Scene" explores the male prostitution scene in contemporary Beijing. While the work's main narrative revolves around a protagonist, Yangyang, who discovers that his father is gay and subsequently falls in love with a man who turns out to be a male prostitute, the film also offers a broader perspective on sex work and same-sex desire. "Night Scene" features a combination of actors and actual male sex workers. // About the filmmaker: Known as China's first openly gay director, Cui Zi'en has written, directed, or produced more than 20 films, and in 2002 he was awarded the Felipa Award by the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. Cui Zi'en is also professor of cinema studies and a novelist.

  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Photographer Myra Greene has often used the human body--primarily black and brown ones, often her own--to explore issues of difference, beauty, and memory. In conversations with white friends, she realized that they had very different notions of racial identity than her own; in one pivotal exchange, a friend remarked that he really didn't think about whiteness at all. "I had never considered this was possible," says Greene. "My White Friends" was born out of this revelation. The project's "racial identity portraits" are co-constructions with Greene's friends that allow them to "respond to the idea of being imaged for their race," she says. Her goal is thoughtful dialogue about how we describe and think about racial identity: "I want conversations, not categories." Greene will give an artist's talk and sign copies of her book of the same name on April 9, 6-9 p.m.

  • Location: Physics 298
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Ultimately, every quantum system of interest is coupled to some form of environment which leads to decoherence. Until our recent study, it was assumed that, as long as the environment is memory-less (i.e. Markovian), the temporal coherence decay is always exponential-- to such a degree that this behavior was synonymously associated with decoherence. However, the situation can change if the system itself is a many-body system. In this case, the interplay between dissipation and internal interactions gives rise to a wealth of novel phenomena. In particular, we have discovered recently that the coherence decay can change to a power law. After recapitulating the mathematical framework and basic notions of decoherence, I will discuss an open XXZ chain for which the decoherence time diverges in the thermodynamic limit. The coherence decay is then algebraic instead of exponential. In contrast, decoherence in the open transverse-field Ising model is found to be always exponential. In this case, the internal interactions can both facilitate and impede the environment-induced decoherence. The results are based on quasi-exact simulations using a matrix product representation of the density operator (time-dependent density matrix renormalization group) and explained on the basis of perturbative treatments.

  • Location: French Family Science Center 3232
  • Contact: Morris, Caroline
  • Description: The characterization of protein folding and ligand interactions on the proteomic scale is important for understanding the basic biology of cellular processes. The identification and quantification of protein-ligand binding affinities is also critical for disease state analyses and drug discovery. A mass spectrometry-based technique, Stability of Protein from Rates of Oxidation (SPROX), has been established for the thermodynamic analysis of protein stability and protein-ligand interactions. A critical part of SPROX for proteome wide application is the identification and quantitation of methionine-containing peptides. Both SILAC (i.e. Stable Isotope Labeling by Amino acid in cell Culture) and iTRAQ (i.e. isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantitation) quantitation strategy have been used for quantitation in SPROX. However, the proteomic coverage of methionine-containing peptides after SPROX reaction still limits its applicability. Described here is the development and application of a new strategy for the detection and quantitation of methionine-containing peptides in SPROX. The strategy involves the use of phenacylbromide to derivatize unoxidized methionine-containing peptides and the neutral loss during collision induced dissociation (CID) in tandem mass spectrometry is used for the identification of unoxidized methionine containing peptides.

  • Description: The stiffness of cells is commonly assumed to depend on the stiffness of their surrounding: bone cells are much stiffer than neurons, and each exists in surrounding tissue that matches the cell stiffness. In this talk, I will discuss new measurements of cell stiffness, and show that that cell stiffness is strongly correlated to cell volume. This affects both the mechanics and the gene expression in the cell, and even impacts on the differentiation of stem cells.

  • Location: Friedl 225
  • Contact: None
  • Description: In Legal Fictions, Karla FC Holloway both argues that U.S. racial identity is the creation of U.S. law and demonstrates how black authors of literary fiction have engaged with the law's constructions of race since the era of slavery. Exploring the resonance between U.S. literature and U.S. jurisprudence, Holloway reveals Toni Morrison's Beloved and Charles Johnson's Middle Passage as stories about personhood and property, David Bradley's The Chaneysville Incident and Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man as structured by evidence law, and Nella Larsen's Passing as intimately related to contract law. Holloway engages the intentional, contradictory, and capricious constructions of race embedded in the law with the same energy that she brings to her masterful interpretations of fiction by U.S. writers. Her readings shed new light on the many ways that black U.S. authors have reframed fundamental questions about racial identity, personhood, and the law from the nineteenth into the twenty-first centuries. Legal Fictions is a bold declaration that the black body is thoroughly bound by law and an unflinching look at the implications of that claim.

  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Photographer Myra Greene has often used the human body--primarily black and brown ones, often her own--to explore issues of difference, beauty, and memory. In conversations with white friends, she realized that they had very different notions of racial identity than her own; in one pivotal exchange, a friend remarked that he really didn't think about whiteness at all. "I had never considered this was possible," says Greene. "My White Friends" was born out of this revelation. The project's "racial identity portraits" are co-constructions with Greene's friends that allow them to "respond to the idea of being imaged for their race," she says. Her goal is thoughtful dialogue about how we describe and think about racial identity: "I want conversations, not categories." Greene will give an artist's talk and sign copies of her book of the same name on April 9, 6-9 p.m.

  • Location: Carr 229 , Boyd Seminar Room
  • Contact: Alcaro, Anna
  • Description: Hienin Ali Diakite is a current Africa Initiative Visiting Scholar working closely with Bruce Hall in the Department of History. This talk will focus on an important polemical text in the intellectual and political history of Muslim West Africa in the 19th century. Ibn Yerkoy Talkfi's 'Tabkiyat al-Bakka' was written after the military victory of al-Hajj Umar Tal's Tukolor forces in the Macina region of present-day Mali in 1862. This conquest resulted in the definitive defeat of a reformist Muslim state known as the Hamdullahi Caliphate, and consolidated one of West Africa's largest political formations in the 19th century. Political conflict was argued, at least in part, in terms of competing Muslim mystical orders (the Qadiriyya of the defeated Hamdullahi, and the Tijaniyya of the victorious Tukolor). Ibn Yerkoy Talfi was a Tijani ideologue and his 'Tabkiyat al-Bakkay' was directed at still powerful Qadiri opponents in the region, and in West Africa more broadly.

  • Description: 12:30pm lunch, 1pm learner lecture 3:30pm lecture, 4:30pm reception Abstract: In this talk, I will explore the state of the art in the analysis and modeling of player tracking data in the NBA. In the past, player tracking data has been used primarily for visualization, such as understanding the spatial distribution of a player¿s shooting characteristics, or to extract summary statistics, such as the distance traveled by a player in a given game. In this talk, I will present how we're using advanced statistics and machine learning tools to answer previously unanswerable questions about the NBA. Examples include ¿How should teams configure their defensive matchups to minimize a player¿s effectiveness?¿, ¿Who are the best decision makers in the NBA?¿, and ¿Who was responsible for the most points against in the NBA last season?¿ Bio: I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at Harvard University. My research focuses on computational statistics and machine learning applied to large-scale spatial and dynamic data. Applications include structural health monitoring, climate informatics, and sports analytics. I¿m also interested in the corresponding computational issues, mainly in the form of stochastic computation (Markov chain Monte Carlo, sequential Monte Carlo, and deterministic variants).

  • Description: We have used inexpensive tracking microscopes to record the spontaneous behaviour of more than 10,000 worms from more than 330 strains, including mutants and wild isolates, at high resolution. In the context of this new data set, I will address two interrelated questions: how can we develop a framework for understanding behaviour quantitatively and how can we use this framework to advance behavioural genetics? Specifically, I will discuss unsupervised methods for detecting stereotyped behaviours and how these can be used for quantitative phenotypic comparisons and investigating behavioural adaptation and evolution.

  • Description: This talk will discuss the use of microfluidic devices to precisely control the flow and mixing of fluids to make drops, and will explore a variety of uses of these drops. These drops can be used to create new materials that are difficult to synthesize with any other method. These materials have great potential for use for encapsulation and release and for drug delivery and for cosmetics. I will also show how the exquisite control afforded by microfluidic devices provides enabling technology to use droplets as microreactors to perform reactions at remarkably high rates using very small quantities of fluids. I will demonstrate how this can be used for new fundamental and technological applications. Hosted by the Duke University Physics and Chemistry Departments The Duke University Chapter of Sigma Xi

  • Location: Physics 298
  • Contact: None
  • Description: The electronic properties of graphene are well described by a non-interacting Dirac Hamiltonian with a fourfold symmetry associated with spin and valley, an additional degree of freedom due to the hexagonal crystal lattice of graphene. As a result, graphene exhibits a variety of peculiar phenomena such as an anomalous quantum Hall effect. At high magnetic fields, the electron kinetic energy is quenched by the Landau quantization, and Coulomb interactions become the dominant energy scale of the system. This results in a variety of new electronic phases, whose ground states depend on the competition between symmetry breaking interactions. Observing these so-called fractional quantum Hall (FQH) phases is challenging in graphene because potential fluctuations induced by disorder blur out transport signatures of FQH states. I will describe fabrication techniques to overcome these difficulties and obtain devices with carrier mobility exceeding one million cm2/Vs in FET or bipolar geometries. This quality allows for the observation of a plethora of fractional quantum Hall phases at filling factors following the composite fermion theory. The sequence of fractions, as well as the magnetic field dependence of their activation gaps, informs us about the spin and valley polarization of the ground state in each phase.

  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Photographer Myra Greene has often used the human body--primarily black and brown ones, often her own--to explore issues of difference, beauty, and memory. In conversations with white friends, she realized that they had very different notions of racial identity than her own; in one pivotal exchange, a friend remarked that he really didn't think about whiteness at all. "I had never considered this was possible," says Greene. "My White Friends" was born out of this revelation. The project's "racial identity portraits" are co-constructions with Greene's friends that allow them to "respond to the idea of being imaged for their race," she says. Her goal is thoughtful dialogue about how we describe and think about racial identity: "I want conversations, not categories." Greene will give an artist's talk and sign copies of her book of the same name on April 9, 6-9 p.m.
