  • Location: Nasher Museum of Art
  • Contact: Livingston, Wendy Hower
  • Description: To celebrate the Nasher Museum's 10th anniversary, we will showcase our exciting and fast-growing collection. The Nasher Museum is evolving from presenting great exhibitions to also presenting our strong collection. It has grown by more than 1,000 works of art in 10 years, and has helped the museum to become a key player in the international art world. One gallery pavilion, freshly reconfigured, will display the best of the historical collection, telling the story of art history through nine distinct spaces. Those installations will feature classical antiquities, medieval art, early American (Pre-Columbian) art, European and American paintings and sculpture, modern art and African art. A second gallery pavilion will feature the museum's contemporary collection, allowing for frequent and lively change-outs as new acquisitions arrive. The Nasher Museum will reaffirm its position as the keystone of the arts at Duke University with an emphasis on undergraduate education and opportunities for undergraduate student-curated installations.

  • DownloadAdd to MyCalendarAdd to FacebookAdd to Google CalendarShare This - must be configured explicitly for your site.Duke Clinic Exhibit: "Artfully Dunne" Paintings and books by Robert Dunne
  • Location: See description
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Robert E. Dunne, A.K.A. Bob, is an accomplished artist who has worked with oils and pastels doing professional portraits, ads, cartooning and caricatures. His work has been represented in offices, board rooms and many private collections and he has won awards as a television art director in NYC. In recent years he taught portrait painting to students at universities in the Atlanta area. Once inspired by the movements of the noble horse, Bob put aside portrait painting for six years to study horses in all their forms of action. His idea was to picture the horses in the middle of their activity, as if caught on the fly, to make a more convincing painting. The beauty and majestic feel of horses caught in action can be calming and inspiring to the viewer. Quality Giclée prints (on canvas or art paper) made from the original oil paintings can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of the original, with options for preferred sizes if ordered. Bob truly enjoys imparting his vast creative knowledge on to others. He recently wrote and illustrated a book teaching school age children a simple way to learn how to draw complex images by breaking them down to familiar shapes. This book is also available for sale as a kit that includes a sketch pad and markers to get started. This collection of work is on display in the Morrison Exhibit Space, near Clinic 1D in the Duke Clinics Building. "Meet the Artist" on January 5,6,7, 11, 12 & 13 from noon to 2 pm.

  • Location: None
  • Contact: None
  • Description: "Take Note" is a curated exhibit of quilts by the African American Quilt Circle of Durham. The African American Quilt Circle (AAQC) was founded in Durham, NC in 1998 to preserve the heritage of quilting in the African American community. Seventeen years later, the AAQC has grown into an arts group with over 60 members of quilters and quilt aficionados who live in the Triangle, surrounding areas including Warrenton, and Wilmington, the east coast (Virginia and Pennsylvania) and Central America (Panama). The group meets monthly at St. Joseph's Historic Foundation at the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham. In 2008, the AAQC self-published a book, The African American Quilt Circle of Durham. In 2010 AAQC was a recipient of The Indies 2010 Triangle Arts Awards, given annually by the Independent Weekly Newspaper to honor outstanding local artists and arts groups who have demonstrated long-term commitment to the region and have a history of spreading our cultural wealth as widely as possible. The AAQC takes seriously its charge to maintain the heritage of quilting in the black community and is committed to supporting community projects. There will be a "Meet the Artists" event on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm at the Arts & Health Galleries in the concourse between Duke Hospital North and the Duke Medicine Pavilion.

  • Location: Rubenstein Library Mary Duke Biddle Room
  • Contact: Wooten, Kelly
  • Description: From the first entomologist to capture the stages of metamorphosis of the butterfly (1705) to the first reformer to open a birth control clinic in Great Britain (1921), the women in this exhibit were pioneers in science and medicine. Whether self-trained or classically educated, they not only made groundbreaking contributions to their fields, but also helped open the way for future generations to follow in their footsteps. Despite their accomplishments, most of these women remain overlooked or under-recognized. This exhibition highlights the stories of seven revolutionary women in science and medicine and celebrates the arrival of the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, from which these materials were selected. Image: "The Southern Celestial Hemisphere," from Margaret Bryan's A compendious system of astronomy. (London, 1797.)

  • Location: Physics 119
  • Contact: Brown, Monique
  • Description: The kidney not only filters metabolic wastes and toxins from the body, but it also regulates the body's water balance, electrolyte balance, and acid-base balance, blood pressure, and blood flow. Despite intense research, aspects of kidney functions remain incompletely understood. I will discuss how our group use mathematical modeling techniques to address a host of previously unanswered questions in renal physiology and pathophysiology: Why is the mammalian kidney so susceptible to hypoxia, despite receiving ~25% of the cardiac output? What are the mechanisms underlying the development of acute kidney injury in a patient who has undergone cardiac surgery performed on cardiopulmonary bypass? What is the effect of inhibiting sodium-glucose transport, a novel treatment for reducing renal glucose update in diabetes, on renal NaCl transport and oxygen consumption?

  • Location: Physics 119
  • Contact: Brown, Monique
  • Description: In this talk, we attempt to derive some experimentally verifiable physical laws of nature based only on a few fundamental first principles. First, we present two basic principles, the principle of interaction dynamics (PID) and the principle of representation invariance (PRI). Intuitively, PID takes the variation of the action under energy-momentum conservation constraint. PID offers a completely different and natural way of introducing Higgs fields. For gravity, we show that PID is the direct consequence of Einstein's principle of general relativity and the presence of dark matter and dark energy. PRI requires that the SU(N) gauge theory be independent of representations of SU(N). PRI has remarkably rich physical consequences. Second, we show that the physical laws of the four fundamental forces-gravity, electromagnetic force, weak and strong forces-are dictated by 1) the Einstein principle of general relativity, 2) the principle of gauge symmetry, 3) PID, and 4) PRI. The new theory will lead to solutions to a number of longstanding problems in particle physics and cosmology. The talk is based on recent joint work with Tian Ma.

  • Description: Film Screening: "Iraqi Odyssey" (Samir, 2014, 162 min, Switzerland, in Arabic and English w/ English subtitles, Color, Blu-Ray) / Tracing the emigrations of his family over more than half a century, this riveting 3D documentary epic from acclaimed expatriate Iraqi filmmaker Samir pays moving homage to the frustrated democratic dreams of a people successively plagued by the horrors of colonialism, dictatorship, war, and foreign occupation. Loosely organized in three acts, the film begins with Samir's grandfather and his role in the struggle against British colonialism. The second act traces the successive waves of emigration as his relatives sought safe havens around the globe to escape from the series of coups and counter-coups in the 1960s and 1970s that resulted in the establishment of Saddam Hussein's three-decade dictatorship over the country. Saddam's deposition by the 2003 US invasion, and the iconic image of his statue being toppled in Firdos Square, signals the film's final act, and the last tale of departure./ -- Winner for Best Film in Abu Dhabi Film Festival (2014)! / -- "A personal, insightful and beautifully made film...I was spellbound in front of the screen." -- Huffington Post / -- "An impressive amount of archival material, nicely edited and accompanied by appropriate music tracks, acts as both family album and chronicle of a lost world." -- Variety / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8z9e6rCKXg

The Nasher Museum is evolving from presenting great exhibitions to also presenting our strong collection. It has grown by more than 1,000 works of art in 10 years, and has helped the museum to become a key player in the international art world. One gallery pavilion, freshly reconfigured, will display the best of the historical collection, telling the story of art history through nine distinct spaces. Those installations will feature classical antiquities, medieval art, early American (Pre-Columbian) art, European and American paintings and sculpture, modern art and African art. A second gallery pavilion will feature the museum's contemporary collection, allowing for frequent and lively change-outs as new acquisitions arrive. The Nasher Museum will reaffirm its position as the keystone of the arts at Duke University with an emphasis on undergraduate education and opportunities for undergraduate student-curated installations.

  • Location: See description
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Robert E. Dunne, A.K.A. Bob, is an accomplished artist who has worked with oils and pastels doing professional portraits, ads, cartooning and caricatures. His work has been represented in offices, board rooms and many private collections and he has won awards as a television art director in NYC. In recent years he taught portrait painting to students at universities in the Atlanta area. Once inspired by the movements of the noble horse, Bob put aside portrait painting for six years to study horses in all their forms of action. His idea was to picture the horses in the middle of their activity, as if caught on the fly, to make a more convincing painting. The beauty and majestic feel of horses caught in action can be calming and inspiring to the viewer. Quality Giclée prints (on canvas or art paper) made from the original oil paintings can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of the original, with options for preferred sizes if ordered. Bob truly enjoys imparting his vast creative knowledge on to others. He recently wrote and illustrated a book teaching school age children a simple way to learn how to draw complex images by breaking them down to familiar shapes. This book is also available for sale as a kit that includes a sketch pad and markers to get started. This collection of work is on display in the Morrison Exhibit Space, near Clinic 1D in the Duke Clinics Building. "Meet the Artist" on January 5,6,7, 11, 12 & 13 from noon to 2 pm.

  • Location: None
  • Contact: None
  • Description: "Take Note" is a curated exhibit of quilts by the African American Quilt Circle of Durham. The African American Quilt Circle (AAQC) was founded in Durham, NC in 1998 to preserve the heritage of quilting in the African American community. Seventeen years later, the AAQC has grown into an arts group with over 60 members of quilters and quilt aficionados who live in the Triangle, surrounding areas including Warrenton, and Wilmington, the east coast (Virginia and Pennsylvania) and Central America (Panama). The group meets monthly at St. Joseph's Historic Foundation at the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham. In 2008, the AAQC self-published a book, The African American Quilt Circle of Durham. In 2010 AAQC was a recipient of The Indies 2010 Triangle Arts Awards, given annually by the Independent Weekly Newspaper to honor outstanding local artists and arts groups who have demonstrated long-term commitment to the region and have a history of spreading our cultural wealth as widely as possible. The AAQC takes seriously its charge to maintain the heritage of quilting in the black community and is committed to supporting community projects. There will be a "Meet the Artists" event on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm at the Arts & Health Galleries in the concourse between Duke Hospital North and the Duke Medicine Pavilion. Live music performed by Tim Smith and William Dawson. This event is free and open to the public.

  • Description: From the first entomologist to capture the stages of metamorphosis of the butterfly (1705) to the first reformer to open a birth control clinic in Great Britain (1921), the women in this exhibit were pioneers in science and medicine. Whether self-trained or classically educated, they not only made groundbreaking contributions to their fields, but also helped open the way for future generations to follow in their footsteps. Despite their accomplishments, most of these women remain overlooked or under-recognized. This exhibition highlights the stories of seven revolutionary women in science and medicine and celebrates the arrival of the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, from which these materials were selected.

  • Location: American Tobacco Campus - Power Plant: Power Plant Gallery
  • Contact: Kelly, Caitlin
  • Description: Exploring Nancy Cohen's large-scale installation Hackensack Dreaming is to enter a world constructed by the human hand through manipulation of raw materials, a parallel not unlike the reality of the Mill Creek Marsh in the Meadowlands of Secaucus, New Jersey, from which Cohen derives her inspiration. In a subtle, self-referential manner, the organic ingredients that constitute the handmade paper and glass - the major components in the installation - are documents of the natural world. Cohen, a New Jersey resident, has spent the last decade following the waterways of New York and New Jersey, finding contradictions of nature in her urban environment. Cohen describes driving through some of the most congested, confusing, and visually unappealing parts of the state: "We park next to Bob's Discount Furniture warehouse amidst Secaucus's outlet malls. From the marshes we look out in one direction to a water treatment plant, in another toward Walmart. We can hear the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike. Beyond the worst of some mash-up of urban suburbia we can see the Empire State Building." The malls, highways, and skyline of New York form the backdrop to an organic world: the Mill Creek Marsh, in the Meadowlands of NJ. Isolated amid a sea of human-made structures, the landscape is quiet and deserted. Exhibit is available from 11 am - 6 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday through March 5th.

  • Location: Old Chemistry 011
  • Contact: Robles, Natalie
  • Description: Despite the omnipresence of translation and interpretation in today's globalized world, we often forget that without the skilled work of translators and interpreters, many people would simply be left out. Interpreters and activists Brian J. Hoffman and Roberto Tijerina will share their experiences and explore some of the ways in which lack of access to interpretation services derails efforts toward social justice in the United States. Advocates for social justice hold that everyone deserves equal economic, political, and social rights and opportunities, and believe that the least advantaged and members of marginalized communities require protections to guarantee fair legal access. In this conversation Hoffman and Tijerina will bear witness to the struggles that speakers of minority languages who are also members of other minority groups (among them immigrants, children, detained populations, the disabled, ethnic and racial minorities, and LGBTQ+ persons) face on a daily basis. They will also talk about the ways activists are working to ensure strides toward social justice in this country. This event is organized by Joan Munné and Melissa Simmermeyer, Lecturers in the Department of Romance Studies, and has been made possible with the support of Forum for Scholars and Publics, the Mary D.B.T. and J.H. Semans International Exchange Fund, Story Lab at Duke, and Romance Studies.

  • Location: Bryan Research 103
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Primates are social animals. We are perhaps most distinguished from other species by our sophisticated societies and the manner in which individuals navigate the nuances of these dynamic systems. The myriad of social interactions inherent to primate societies are governed by social rules and mitigated by a suite of social signals. In this talk, Dr. Miller will present experiments aimed at elucidating the neural mechanisms underlying social signaling in common marmosets. He employs a novel behavior paradigm in which the vocal behavior and signals of "Virtual Monkeys" can be experimentally manipulated and directly engage subjects in naturally occurring vocal interactions. Using a version of this paradigm, he recorded the activity of single frontal cortex neurons from freely moving marmosets and found notable differences in sensory and vocal-motor responses from analogous experiments in restrained monkeys. Despite relatively weak sensory responses to vocalizations in marmoset frontal cortex neurons during natural communication, a classifier was able to reliably predict whether a particular vocalization will elicit a vocal response. He will also discuss recent work developing techniques for mapping and manipulating the functional neural circuitry underlying this vocal behavior, including fMRI and optogenetics, as part of a broader vision to explicate the neural mechanisms underlying social signaling in the primate brain.

  • Location: Sanford 223, Rhodes Conference Room
  • Contact: None
  • Description: This lecture will examine contemporary patterns of discrimination against religious minorities. Religious discrimination is the norm in many countries and is rising. The lecture explores how we understand concepts like religious discrimination and religious freedom and why countries discriminate. Every country which discriminates does so unequally singling out some religious minorities for more discrimination than others. Dr. Jonathan Fox is Professor in Political Studies at Bar Ilan University in Ramat Gan, Israel. His work focuses on the influence of religion on politics, especially the impact of religion on domestic conflict and international relations. Fox was part of the Templeton Foundation-funded Religion and State project from 2008 to 2011, which collected and analyzed data on government involvement in religion. He has also worked on the Minorities at Risk and State Failure projects. Fox is the author or editor of several books and over fifty research articles and book chapters, including "Political Secularism, Religion, and the State: A Time Series Analysis of Worldwide Data" (forthcoming). His lecture will include some reflections on the research that he has recently published in his new book, "The Unfree Exercise of Religion: A World Survey of Discrimination against Religious Minorities."

  • Location: Physics 298
  • Contact: Solis, Jennifer
  • Description: In high energy collisions of heavy-ions, experimental findings of collective flow are customarily associated with the presence of a thermalized medium expanding according to the laws of hydrodynamics, which has been dubbed a 'quark-gluon plasma'. Just a few years ago, there was near consensus in the field that systems created in proton-nucleus and proton-proton collisions were too small, too short-lived, and contained too few particles to form a quark-gluon plasma. Then the experimental results started to come in. In all of these small systems, the experimental signals turned out to be similar in type and magnitude to those found in heavy-ion collisions, severely challenging the 'consensus'. In this talk, I will discuss under which conditions hydrodynamics can reasonably be applied to small systems in proton-nucleus and proton-proton collisions, whether it can be used to quantitatively describe experimental data, and what we may learn about QCD transport coefficients and non-equililibrium QCD dynamics along the way.

  • Contact: Wooten, Kelly
  • Description: Duke History Department Professor Tom Robisheaux will give a lecture on the on the Baskin Collection including his use of naturalist and artist Maria Sibylla Merian's works. "Heralding the Way to a New World: Exploring Women in Science and Medicine through the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection" will be on display in the Michael and Karen Stone Family Gallery through April 1, 2016. From the first entomologist to capture the stages of metamorphosis of the butterfly (1705) to the first reformer to open a birth control clinic in Great Britain (1921), the women in this exhibit were pioneers in science and medicine. Whether self-trained or classically educated, they not only made groundbreaking contributions to their fields, but also helped open the way for future generations to follow in their footsteps. Despite their accomplishments, most of these women remain overlooked or under-recognized. This exhibition highlights the stories of seven revolutionary women in science and medicine and celebrates the arrival of the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, from which these materials were selected.

  • Location: Social Sciences 139 LaBarre
  • Contact: None
  • Description: An interactive panel presented by the Kunshan Student Ambassador Council and the Duke East Asia Nexus: The relationship between the US and China is arguably the most important bilateral relationship of the 21st century. In the past ten years, this connection has developed in the areas of economics and the environment. In more recent years, a new interest realm has emerged between the two nations: Sino-US universities. American universities are beginning to view China as a platform for exporting the liberal arts model. Why are Western institutions -- U.S.-based ones, specifically -- going into China, and why are some Chinese universities so eager to be on board? What are the opportunities and constraints that come with the current approach? Lastly, how might the proliferation of joint ventures affect innovative education in an increasingly globalized world? Three panelists will answer these questions and help us determine what values this new-style education could add to the US-China relationship and to students and educators around the globe.

  • Description: Film Screening: "Daratt / Dry Season" (Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, 2006, 96 min, Chad, in Arabic and French w/ English subtitles, Color, DVD) / Chad, 2006. After a forty-year civil war, the radio announces the government has just amnestied the war criminals. Outraged by the news, Gumar Abatcha orders his grandson Atim, a sixteen-year-old youth, to trace the man who killed his father and to execute him. Atim obeys him and, armed with his father's own gun, he goes in search of Nassara, the man who made him an orphan. He is bent on revenge. But instead of a cold-hearted killer, Atim finds a quiet, regal man. Nassara (Youssouf Djaoro) has left killing behind and now is married, goes to the mosque and owns a small bakery. Nassara takes on the young man as an apprentice baker and now Atim just waits for the right moment to strike. /-- Winner for Best Cinematography in Ouagadougou Panafrican Film and Television Festival (2007) and 5 awards in Venice Film Festival (2006)! / --"Using a simple storytelling style that grows stronger with each passing scene, "Dry Season" draws the viewer into its small two-character drama set in post-war Chad, while it offers a deep reflection on injustice and frustrated revenge."-- Variety / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEjbCKpoF7Y // Light refreshments will be served.

  • Location: See description
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Robert E. Dunne, A.K.A. Bob, is an accomplished artist who has worked with oils and pastels doing professional portraits, ads, cartooning and caricatures. His work has been represented in offices, board rooms and many private collections and he has won awards as a television art director in NYC. In recent years he taught portrait painting to students at universities in the Atlanta area. Once inspired by the movements of the noble horse, Bob put aside portrait painting for six years to study horses in all their forms of action. His idea was to picture the horses in the middle of their activity, as if caught on the fly, to make a more convincing painting. The beauty and majestic feel of horses caught in action can be calming and inspiring to the viewer. Quality Giclée prints (on canvas or art paper) made from the original oil paintings can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of the original, with options for preferred sizes if ordered. Bob truly enjoys imparting his vast creative knowledge on to others. He recently wrote and illustrated a book teaching school age children a simple way to learn how to draw complex images by breaking them down to familiar shapes. This book is also available for sale as a kit that includes a sketch pad and markers to get started. This collection of work is on display in the Morrison Exhibit Space, near Clinic 1D in the Duke Clinics Building. "Meet the Artist" on January 5,6,7, 11, 12 & 13 from noon to 2 pm.

  • Description: "Take Note" is a curated exhibit of quilts by the African American Quilt Circle of Durham. The African American Quilt Circle (AAQC) was founded in Durham, NC in 1998 to preserve the heritage of quilting in the African American community. Seventeen years later, the AAQC has grown into an arts group with over 60 members of quilters and quilt aficionados who live in the Triangle, surrounding areas including Warrenton, and Wilmington, the east coast (Virginia and Pennsylvania) and Central America (Panama). The group meets monthly at St. Joseph's Historic Foundation at the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham. In 2008, the AAQC self-published a book, The African American Quilt Circle of Durham. In 2010 AAQC was a recipient of The Indies 2010 Triangle Arts Awards, given annually by the Independent Weekly Newspaper to honor outstanding local artists and arts groups who have demonstrated long-term commitment to the region and have a history of spreading our cultural wealth as widely as possible. The AAQC takes seriously its charge to maintain the heritage of quilting in the black community and is committed to supporting community projects. There will be a "Meet the Artists" event on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm at the Arts & Health Galleries in the concourse between Duke Hospital North and the Duke Medicine Pavilion.

  • Location: American Tobacco Campus - Power Plant: Power Plant Gallery
  • Contact: Kelly, Caitlin
  • Description: Exploring Nancy Cohen's large-scale installation Hackensack Dreaming is to enter a world constructed by the human hand through manipulation of raw materials, a parallel not unlike the reality of the Mill Creek Marsh in the Meadowlands of Secaucus, New Jersey, from which Cohen derives her inspiration. In a subtle, self-referential manner, the organic ingredients that constitute the handmade paper and glass - the major components in the installation - are documents of the natural world. Cohen, a New Jersey resident, has spent the last decade following the waterways of New York and New Jersey, finding contradictions of nature in her urban environment. Cohen describes driving through some of the most congested, confusing, and visually unappealing parts of the state: "We park next to Bob's Discount Furniture warehouse amidst Secaucus's outlet malls. From the marshes we look out in one direction to a water treatment plant, in another toward Walmart. We can hear the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike. Beyond the worst of some mash-up of urban suburbia we can see the Empire State Building." The malls, highways, and skyline of New York form the backdrop to an organic world: the Mill Creek Marsh, in the Meadowlands of NJ. Isolated amid a sea of human-made structures, the landscape is quiet and deserted. Exhibit is available from 11 am - 6 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday through March 5th.

In the past ten years, this connection has developed in the areas of economics and the environment. In more recent years, a new interest realm has emerged between the two nations: Sino-US universities. American universities are beginning to view China as a platform for exporting the liberal arts model. Why are Western institutions -- U.S.-based ones, specifically -- going into China, and why are some Chinese universities so eager to be on board? What are the opportunities and constraints that come with the current approach? Lastly, how might the proliferation of joint ventures affect innovative education in an increasingly globalized world? Three panelists will answer these questions and help us determine what values this new-style education could add to the US-China relationship and to students and educators around the globe.

  • Location: Old Chemistry 011
  • Contact: Elliott, Serena
  • Description: Israeli film director and screenwriter comes to Duke to discuss his award-winning documentary The Law in These Parts. A documentary that sheds new light on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from an unexpected perspective, Alexandrowicz interviewed nine military judges in attempt to understand how Israel created a new legal system to control the Gaza Strip and West Bank after occupying them in 1967. Mr. Alexandrowicz will both discuss, and foster discussion, about the questions his documentary raises: Can an occupation be achieved within a legal framework that includes genuine adherence to the principles of rule-of-law? Should it? What are the costs that a society engaged in such a long term exercise must bear? And what are the implications of the very effort to make a documentary film about such a system? https://fsp.trinity.duke.edu/projects/law-these-parts-discussion Please RSVP to serena.elliott@duke.edu as lunch will be served. Ra'anan Alexandrowicz was born and raised in Jerusalem, and graduated from the Sam Spiegel School of Cinema and Television. Following his studies he moved to Tel Aviv, and made the documentary film "Martin" (1999), which won the Wolgin Prize at the Jerusalem Film Festival. It portrayed the story of an elderly Holocaust survivor who lives near the museum at the Dachau concentration camp, and offers tourists an alternative commentary to the official guides' explanations.

There are many pitfalls of working with these tables, though, that most people end up having to learn the hard way. In this workshop, we'll take a dataset that has a variety of different properties and learn to work through many common steps of data-driven research to clean and begin analyzing the data. We'll be using Excel to make sure the methods we suggest can be reproduced easily "at home," but many of these techniques are important for other data analysis tools as well. No data experience necessary.

  • Description: We give an overview of a general trend of results that say that the distribution of the number of F_q-points of certain families of curves of genus g is asymptotically given by a sum of q+1 independent, identically distributed random variables as g goes to infinity. In particular, we discuss the distribution of the number of F_q-points for cyclic l-covers of genus g. (This is joint work with Bucur, David, Feigon, Kaplan, Ozman, Wood.) This work generalizes previous results in which only connected components of the moduli space were considered.

  • Location: Gross Hall 330
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Emerging long-read sequencing technologies promise to enable near-perfect reconstruction of whole genomes. Assembly of long reads is usually accomplished using a read-overlap graph, in which the true sequence corresponds to a Hamiltonian path. As such, the assembly problem becomes NP-hard under most formulations, and most of the known algorithmic approaches are heuristic in nature. In this talk, however, we will see that the NP-hardness of the computational problem can be overcome if we focus on instances of the assembly problem that are feasible from an information-theoretic standpoint. Somewhat surprisingly, we arrive at this conclusion by first setting the computational complexity issue aside, and instead seeking algorithms that target information limits. In particular, we begin with a basic feasibility question: when does the set of reads contain enough information to allow unambiguous reconstruction of the true sequence? We show that in most instances of the problem where the reads do contain enough information for assembly, the read-overlap graph can be sparsified, giving rise to an Eulerian graph where the problem can be solved in linear time. We also study the cases where the reads do not contain enough information for assembly, but from a rate-distortion perspective. We propose a new notion of distortion for assembly graphs and describe a practical assembly algorithm whose achieved distortion can be bounded in terms of the repeat complexity of the target genome.

  • Description: "47 Years of Documentation" -- A talk/visual presentation by Israeli documentary filmmaker Ra'anan Alexandrowicz: Celebrated Israeli filmmaker Ra'anan Alexandrowicz ("The Law in These Parts") comes to do Duke to give an archival presentation, "47 years of Documentation." This event/talk is structured around a sequence of archive footage segments collected by Alexandrowicz, all shot over the last 5 decades in the city of Hebron. It starts with the cinema newsreels of the late 60's, continues with the public television of the 70's and 80's, the long form documentary films of the 90's and runs all the way till the viral You tube clips of today. What the journey through archives of different periods and formats allows, is not only to visually tell the story of the city and its transformation in the last half century, but to focus on the documentation of the occupation as a phenomenon, to look at the way the documentation itself has evolved during this period of time and to raise questions about the relationship and affect between political and social reality and its documentation.

EVE comes to realize that WALL-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet's future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL-E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen. Joining WALL-E on his fantastic journey across a universe of never-before-imagined visions of the future, is a hilarious cast of characters including a pet cockroach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots. / -- Winner for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year at 81st Academy Awards (2009) !!! / -- Winner for Best Animated Film at 66th Golden Globe Awards (2009)! / -- Winner for Best Animated Film at 62nd British Academy Film Awards (2009)! /-- "As a film critic who has spent too many summers viewing mediocre misfires and uninspired reinterpretations of TV shows, comic books and cult classics, it's immensely satisfying to recommend something as breathtakingly glorious as WALL-E." - Jeff Meyers, Metro Times / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZisWjdjs-gM

  • Location: See description
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Robert E. Dunne, A.K.A. Bob, is an accomplished artist who has worked with oils and pastels doing professional portraits, ads, cartooning and caricatures. His work has been represented in offices, board rooms and many private collections and he has won awards as a television art director in NYC. In recent years he taught portrait painting to students at universities in the Atlanta area. Once inspired by the movements of the noble horse, Bob put aside portrait painting for six years to study horses in all their forms of action. His idea was to picture the horses in the middle of their activity, as if caught on the fly, to make a more convincing painting. The beauty and majestic feel of horses caught in action can be calming and inspiring to the viewer. Quality Giclée prints (on canvas or art paper) made from the original oil paintings can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of the original, with options for preferred sizes if ordered. Bob truly enjoys imparting his vast creative knowledge on to others. He recently wrote and illustrated a book teaching school age children a simple way to learn how to draw complex images by breaking them down to familiar shapes. This book is also available for sale as a kit that includes a sketch pad and markers to get started. This collection of work is on display in the Morrison Exhibit Space, near Clinic 1D in the Duke Clinics Building. "Meet the Artist" on January 5,6,7, 11, 12 & 13 from noon to 2 pm.

  • Location: None
  • Contact: None
  • Description: "Take Note" is a curated exhibit of quilts by the African American Quilt Circle of Durham. The African American Quilt Circle (AAQC) was founded in Durham, NC in 1998 to preserve the heritage of quilting in the African American community. Seventeen years later, the AAQC has grown into an arts group with over 60 members of quilters and quilt aficionados who live in the Triangle, surrounding areas including Warrenton, and Wilmington, the east coast (Virginia and Pennsylvania) and Central America (Panama). The group meets monthly at St. Joseph's Historic Foundation at the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham. In 2008, the AAQC self-published a book, The African American Quilt Circle of Durham. In 2010 AAQC was a recipient of The Indies 2010 Triangle Arts Awards, given annually by the Independent Weekly Newspaper to honor outstanding local artists and arts groups who have demonstrated long-term commitment to the region and have a history of spreading our cultural wealth as widely as possible. The AAQC takes seriously its charge to maintain the heritage of quilting in the black community and is committed to supporting community projects. There will be a "Meet the Artists" event on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm at the Arts & Health Galleries in the concourse between Duke Hospital North and the Duke Medicine Pavilion. Live music performed by Tim Smith and William Dawson. This event is free and open to the public.

  • Description: From the first entomologist to capture the stages of metamorphosis of the butterfly (1705) to the first reformer to open a birth control clinic in Great Britain (1921), the women in this exhibit were pioneers in science and medicine. Whether self-trained or classically educated, they not only made groundbreaking contributions to their fields, but also helped open the way for future generations to follow in their footsteps. Despite their accomplishments, most of these women remain overlooked or under-recognized. This exhibition highlights the stories of seven revolutionary women in science and medicine and celebrates the arrival of the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, from which these materials were selected.

  • Location: American Tobacco Campus - Power Plant: Power Plant Gallery
  • Contact: Kelly, Caitlin
  • Description: Exploring Nancy Cohen's large-scale installation Hackensack Dreaming is to enter a world constructed by the human hand through manipulation of raw materials, a parallel not unlike the reality of the Mill Creek Marsh in the Meadowlands of Secaucus, New Jersey, from which Cohen derives her inspiration. In a subtle, self-referential manner, the organic ingredients that constitute the handmade paper and glass - the major components in the installation - are documents of the natural world. Cohen, a New Jersey resident, has spent the last decade following the waterways of New York and New Jersey, finding contradictions of nature in her urban environment. Cohen describes driving through some of the most congested, confusing, and visually unappealing parts of the state: "We park next to Bob's Discount Furniture warehouse amidst Secaucus's outlet malls. From the marshes we look out in one direction to a water treatment plant, in another toward Walmart. We can hear the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike. Beyond the worst of some mash-up of urban suburbia we can see the Empire State Building." The malls, highways, and skyline of New York form the backdrop to an organic world: the Mill Creek Marsh, in the Meadowlands of NJ. Isolated amid a sea of human-made structures, the landscape is quiet and deserted. Exhibit is available from 11 am - 6 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday through March 5th.

  • Description: Julia is a new programming language for numerical computing that aims to combine the flexibility of dynamic languages like Python or Matlab with the speed of Fortran or C. In this short course, we will introduce the basics of Julia programming with hands-on examples, give an overview of the Julia ecosystem for simulation and data analysis, and point out common pitfalls for those coming from other dynamic languages (R, Python, Matlab). We will focus on what makes Julia different from other scientific or technical programming languages and discuss where the language is headed in the future. To make the most use of this course, participants should ideally have a basic understanding of another programming or scripting language so that programming concepts are familiar from the beginning of the course. A lunch break will be scheduled during the workshop, and lunch will be provided for participants. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.

  • Description: In this talk, we study blow-up mechanism of solutions to an integrable equation with cubic nonlinearities and nonlinear dispersion. We will show that singularities of the solutions can occur only in the form of wave-breaking. Some wave-breaking conditons on the initial data are provided. In addition, this equation is known to admit single and multi-peaked solitons, of a different character than those of the Camassa-Holm equation. We will prove that the shapes of these waves are stable under small perturbations in the energy space.

  • Location: Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room , First Floor
  • Contact: Krieger, Katie
  • Description: Self-assembly of biological molecules is an attractive method for engineering supramolecular biomaterials for different applications. In my group we focus on the design and characterization of amphiphilic molecules that have the tendency to self-assemble spontaneously in different structures in water. I will discuss our efforts to target a novel molecule called fractalkine with amphiphilic nanomaterials. Fractalkine bears potential for novel therapeutics due to its unique structure and its central role in certain human diseases such as inflammation and cancer. Currently, no therapeutics targeting fractalkine exist. We have recently developed an aptamer (ssDNA that has affinity and specificity for the target of choice) that binds to fractalkine, and formed micelles out of aptamer-amphiphiles. Our work shows that we can successfully target fractalkine with our ssDNA micelles, therefore providing opportunities to use fractalkine as a molecular target in different diseases. Finally, I will discuss how we design our ssDNA-amphiphiles so that depending on the building blocks used for their design they can self-assemble into supramolecular nanostructures with non-spherical geometries, such as DNA nanotubes, which is an area of great interest in DNA nanotechnology with many technological and biomedical applications.

  • Location: Physics 298
  • Contact: Paul, Cristin
  • Description: In 2006, Alexei Kitaev proposed that certain 2D honeycomb magnets with a strong spin-orbit coupling in the low-spin (S=1/2) ground state and a high degree of bond anisotropy will form a quantum-spin-liquid (QSL). This QSL is special since its excitations can be solved exactly to predict the presence of 2D Majorana Fermions. If realized in a solid-state material, these hold the promise for the technology of lossless topological qubits that survive to high temperatures. In this talk, I will present the search of these elusive quasi-particles in a two-dimensional (2D) honeycomb magnet a-RuCl3. Using a combination of thermodynamic, diffraction and neutron-scattering measurements in powder and single-crystal samples, we delve in detail the ground-state in the material, and show that this material has the ingredients necessary for satisfying the Heisenberg-Kitaev Hamiltonian. A spin-wave analysis yields that anisotropic Kitaev interactions are indeed the leading-order coupling in this material. Although the ground state is antiferromagnetic at lowest temperatures, this material shows a broad excitation spectrum independent of the long-range ordering, - which could not be explained with standard classical theories. Excitingly, when compared with the exact quantum calculations of the pure Kitaev QSL ground state, the data matches the broad fractionalized excitations expected from itinerant Majorana Fermions.

  • Location: Duke North, Room 2002 , Duke University Hospital
  • Contact: Scott, Phillis
  • Description: The Carter Memorial Lecture honors Dr. James H. Carter Sr., the first African-American full professor of psychiatry at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Carter arrived at Duke in 1970 and served as a tenured professor for more than 20 years. Throughout his career he maintained a commitment to community psychiatry, particularly in the areas of substance abuse and mental health care for prisoners. Dr. Carter played a critical role in building mental health services at Lincoln Community Medical Center in Durham, the Alcohol Treatment Center in Raleigh, the Johnston County Mental Health Center, and the Department of Corrections. Dr. Carter received the American Psychiatric Association's 2003 Solomon Carter Fuller Award, named after the first African-American psychiatrist in the United States, for his advancements in the field. He also received the North Carolina Governor's Award for his instrumental leadership in providing mental health care to prisoners, including the construction of two mental health facilities in North Carolina that became a model for correctional health care.

  • Location: Rubenstein Library Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room 153
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: None
  • Description: The Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) and Duke University have named Kirsten Weld's book, "Paper Cadavers: The Archives of Dictatorship in Guatemala" (Duke University Press, 2014) as the winner of the 2015 WOLA-Duke Human Rights Book Award. Weld will be at Duke University Libraries to receive the award, discuss and read from her book. The award presentation will be followed by a reception and book signing. "Paper Cadavers" documents the heroic effort of hundreds of idealistic, activist youth who rescued and organized the National Police records under the leadership of a former guerrilla, Gustavo Meoño. In 2005, activists from the Human Rights Ombudsman's Office (PDH) of Guatemala, while inspecting police premises for improper storage of explosives in Guatemala City, accidentally came across a trove of 75 to 80 million half-moldy pages of National Police (PN) records. Kirsten Weld, assistant professor at Harvard University, shows how information once employed by the police state to control society and pursue subversives was put to use by the human rights community to reveal the identity of perpetrators of human rights abuses and to bring many of them to trial. In the words of the author, "Records once used in the service of state terror are repurposed by surviving reformers as building blocks for the rule of law and tools of social reckoning."

  • Location: Motorco Music Hall
  • Cost: $22/ $15 Ages 30 & under / $10 Duke students
  • Contact: Greenwald, Aaron
  • Description: Ghanaian-American rapper Blitz the Ambassador makes no bones about his mission. He blends elements of Ghanaian highlife with the fiercest and most socially engaged '90s hip-hop, drawing inspiration from the super-charged rhythms of Fela Kuti and the thunderous delivery of his hero Chuck D. The result is a pointed commentary about Africa and America that is at once smart and outrageously danceable. 'Blitz is one of the leading voices in the growing movement connecting the classic sound of American hip-hop with stories and musical traditions of Africa and the African diaspora' (Afropop Worldwide). Blitz is backed here by a seven-piece band in the intimate nightclub setting of Motorco Music Hall, a venue perfectly suited to his 'sonic fireworks, horn stabs, and percussive rumbles' (NPR). Blitz's latest release, Afropolitan Dreams, chronicles life as an African artist in America, faced with the constant hustle between two different worlds. Blitz, with his rapper's winning bravado, describes how he's going to make it big: by dreaming large, working hard, and flowing indefatigably.

  • Description: To celebrate the Nasher Museum's 10th anniversary, we will showcase our exciting and fast-growing collection. The Nasher Museum is evolving from presenting great exhibitions to also presenting our strong collection. It has grown by more than 1,000 works of art in 10 years, and has helped the museum to become a key player in the international art world. One gallery pavilion, freshly reconfigured, will display the best of the historical collection, telling the story of art history through nine distinct spaces. Those installations will feature classical antiquities, medieval art, early American (Pre-Columbian) art, European and American paintings and sculpture, modern art and African art. A second gallery pavilion will feature the museum's contemporary collection, allowing for frequent and lively change-outs as new acquisitions arrive. The Nasher Museum will reaffirm its position as the keystone of the arts at Duke University with an emphasis on undergraduate education and opportunities for undergraduate student-curated installations.

  • Location: See description
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Robert E. Dunne, A.K.A. Bob, is an accomplished artist who has worked with oils and pastels doing professional portraits, ads, cartooning and caricatures. His work has been represented in offices, board rooms and many private collections and he has won awards as a television art director in NYC. In recent years he taught portrait painting to students at universities in the Atlanta area. Once inspired by the movements of the noble horse, Bob put aside portrait painting for six years to study horses in all their forms of action. His idea was to picture the horses in the middle of their activity, as if caught on the fly, to make a more convincing painting. The beauty and majestic feel of horses caught in action can be calming and inspiring to the viewer. Quality Giclée prints (on canvas or art paper) made from the original oil paintings can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of the original, with options for preferred sizes if ordered. Bob truly enjoys imparting his vast creative knowledge on to others. He recently wrote and illustrated a book teaching school age children a simple way to learn how to draw complex images by breaking them down to familiar shapes. This book is also available for sale as a kit that includes a sketch pad and markers to get started. This collection of work is on display in the Morrison Exhibit Space, near Clinic 1D in the Duke Clinics Building. "Meet the Artist" on January 5,6,7, 11, 12 & 13 from noon to 2 pm.

  • Location: None
  • Contact: None
  • Description: "Take Note" is a curated exhibit of quilts by the African American Quilt Circle of Durham. The African American Quilt Circle (AAQC) was founded in Durham, NC in 1998 to preserve the heritage of quilting in the African American community. Seventeen years later, the AAQC has grown into an arts group with over 60 members of quilters and quilt aficionados who live in the Triangle, surrounding areas including Warrenton, and Wilmington, the east coast (Virginia and Pennsylvania) and Central America (Panama). The group meets monthly at St. Joseph's Historic Foundation at the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham. In 2008, the AAQC self-published a book, The African American Quilt Circle of Durham. In 2010 AAQC was a recipient of The Indies 2010 Triangle Arts Awards, given annually by the Independent Weekly Newspaper to honor outstanding local artists and arts groups who have demonstrated long-term commitment to the region and have a history of spreading our cultural wealth as widely as possible. The AAQC takes seriously its charge to maintain the heritage of quilting in the black community and is committed to supporting community projects. There will be a "Meet the Artists" event on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm at the Arts & Health Galleries in the concourse between Duke Hospital North and the Duke Medicine Pavilion. Live music performed by Tim Smith and William Dawson. This event is free and open to the public.

  • Location: Rubenstein Library Mary Duke Biddle Room
  • Contact: Wooten, Kelly
  • Description: From the first entomologist to capture the stages of metamorphosis of the butterfly (1705) to the first reformer to open a birth control clinic in Great Britain (1921), the women in this exhibit were pioneers in science and medicine. Whether self-trained or classically educated, they not only made groundbreaking contributions to their fields, but also helped open the way for future generations to follow in their footsteps. Despite their accomplishments, most of these women remain overlooked or under-recognized. This exhibition highlights the stories of seven revolutionary women in science and medicine and celebrates the arrival of the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, from which these materials were selected.

  • Location: American Tobacco Campus - Power Plant: Power Plant Gallery
  • Contact: Kelly, Caitlin
  • Description: Exploring Nancy Cohen's large-scale installation Hackensack Dreaming is to enter a world constructed by the human hand through manipulation of raw materials, a parallel not unlike the reality of the Mill Creek Marsh in the Meadowlands of Secaucus, New Jersey, from which Cohen derives her inspiration. In a subtle, self-referential manner, the organic ingredients that constitute the handmade paper and glass - the major components in the installation - are documents of the natural world. Cohen, a New Jersey resident, has spent the last decade following the waterways of New York and New Jersey, finding contradictions of nature in her urban environment. Cohen describes driving through some of the most congested, confusing, and visually unappealing parts of the state: "We park next to Bob's Discount Furniture warehouse amidst Secaucus's outlet malls. From the marshes we look out in one direction to a water treatment plant, in another toward Walmart. We can hear the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike. Beyond the worst of some mash-up of urban suburbia we can see the Empire State Building." The malls, highways, and skyline of New York form the backdrop to an organic world: the Mill Creek Marsh, in the Meadowlands of NJ. Isolated amid a sea of human-made structures, the landscape is quiet and deserted. Exhibit is available from 11 am - 6 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday through March 5th.

  • Contact: Livingston, Wendy Hower
  • Description: To celebrate the Nasher Museum's 10th anniversary, we will showcase our exciting and fast-growing collection. The Nasher Museum is evolving¿from presenting great exhibitions to also presenting our strong collection. It has grown by more than 1,000 works of art in 10 years, and has helped the museum to become a key player in the international art world. One gallery pavilion, freshly reconfigured, will display the best of the historical collection, telling the story of art history through nine distinct spaces. Those installations will feature classical antiquities, medieval art, early American (Pre-Columbian) art, European and American paintings and sculpture, modern art and African art. A second gallery pavilion will feature the museum's contemporary collection, allowing for frequent and lively change-outs as new acquisitions arrive. The Nasher Museum will reaffirm its position as the keystone of the arts at Duke University with an emphasis on undergraduate education and opportunities for undergraduate student-curated installations.

  • Location: See description
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Robert E. Dunne, A.K.A. Bob, is an accomplished artist who has worked with oils and pastels doing professional portraits, ads, cartooning and caricatures. His work has been represented in offices, board rooms and many private collections and he has won awards as a television art director in NYC. In recent years he taught portrait painting to students at universities in the Atlanta area. Once inspired by the movements of the noble horse, Bob put aside portrait painting for six years to study horses in all their forms of action. His idea was to picture the horses in the middle of their activity, as if caught on the fly, to make a more convincing painting. The beauty and majestic feel of horses caught in action can be calming and inspiring to the viewer. Quality Giclée prints (on canvas or art paper) made from the original oil paintings can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of the original, with options for preferred sizes if ordered. Bob truly enjoys imparting his vast creative knowledge on to others. He recently wrote and illustrated a book teaching school age children a simple way to learn how to draw complex images by breaking them down to familiar shapes. This book is also available for sale as a kit that includes a sketch pad and markers to get started.

  • Location: None
  • Contact: None
  • Description: "Take Note" is a curated exhibit of quilts by the African American Quilt Circle of Durham. The African American Quilt Circle (AAQC) was founded in Durham, NC in 1998 to preserve the heritage of quilting in the African American community. Seventeen years later, the AAQC has grown into an arts group with over 60 members of quilters and quilt aficionados who live in the Triangle, surrounding areas including Warrenton, and Wilmington, the east coast (Virginia and Pennsylvania) and Central America (Panama). The group meets monthly at St. Joseph's Historic Foundation at the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham. In 2008, the AAQC self-published a book, The African American Quilt Circle of Durham. In 2010 AAQC was a recipient of The Indies 2010 Triangle Arts Awards, given annually by the Independent Weekly Newspaper to honor outstanding local artists and arts groups who have demonstrated long-term commitment to the region and have a history of spreading our cultural wealth as widely as possible. The AAQC takes seriously its charge to maintain the heritage of quilting in the black community and is committed to supporting community projects. There will be a "Meet the Artists" event on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm at the Arts & Health Galleries in the concourse between Duke Hospital North and the Duke Medicine Pavilion. Live music performed by Tim Smith and William Dawson. This event is free and open to the public.

  • Location: Rubenstein Library Mary Duke Biddle Room
  • Contact: Wooten, Kelly
  • Description: From the first entomologist to capture the stages of metamorphosis of the butterfly (1705) to the first reformer to open a birth control clinic in Great Britain (1921), the women in this exhibit were pioneers in science and medicine. Whether self-trained or classically educated, they not only made groundbreaking contributions to their fields, but also helped open the way for future generations to follow in their footsteps. Despite their accomplishments, most of these women remain overlooked or under-recognized. This exhibition highlights the stories of seven revolutionary women in science and medicine and celebrates the arrival of the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, from which these materials were selected.

  • Location: American Tobacco Campus - Power Plant: Power Plant Gallery
  • Contact: Kelly, Caitlin
  • Description: Exploring Nancy Cohen's large-scale installation Hackensack Dreaming is to enter a world constructed by the human hand through manipulation of raw materials, a parallel not unlike the reality of the Mill Creek Marsh in the Meadowlands of Secaucus, New Jersey, from which Cohen derives her inspiration. In a subtle, self-referential manner, the organic ingredients that constitute the handmade paper and glass - the major components in the installation - are documents of the natural world. Cohen, a New Jersey resident, has spent the last decade following the waterways of New York and New Jersey, finding contradictions of nature in her urban environment. Cohen describes driving through some of the most congested, confusing, and visually unappealing parts of the state: "We park next to Bob's Discount Furniture warehouse amidst Secaucus's outlet malls. From the marshes we look out in one direction to a water treatment plant, in another toward Walmart. We can hear the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike. Beyond the worst of some mash-up of urban suburbia we can see the Empire State Building." The malls, highways, and skyline of New York form the backdrop to an organic world: the Mill Creek Marsh, in the Meadowlands of NJ. Isolated amid a sea of human-made structures, the landscape is quiet and deserted. Exhibit is available from 11 am - 6 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday through March 5th.

  • Location: None
  • Contact: None
  • Description: The Hillside High School in Durham is organizing a "Science and Engineering Fair," which will be scheduled for next Saturday, February 13th, from 11am-12:15pm. This outreach opportunity will offer the opportunity for their students to learn about some cool research and see what pursuing science-related studies can lead to. There is basically a 45 minute time period devoted to the interaction between high school students and graduate students. The high school students will also be walking through a classroom, where tables will be set up for graduate students to discuss about their research. The whole atmosphere is expected to be quite informal, and nothing such as fancy posters are necessary: bringing something simple that represents your science to "show and tell" high school students is enough. For example, two students from the Biology department are bringing in mantis shrimps as their research pitch. The organizers would be very happy to have 2 or 3 graduate students from Pratt to stand at a table and talk about their research. I personally think it is a great opportunity to stimulate and inspire these kids, and it is clearly not too time-consuming. Those willing to take part in the event can contact Mathias Berger at mpeberger@gmail.com in order to organize the practical details of the trip.

  • Location: Baldwin Auditorium
  • Cost: $42 / $36 / $15 Ages 30 & under / $10 Duke students
  • Contact: Greenwald, Aaron
  • Description: The recent emergence of the Denmark- and Norway-based Danish String Quartet has brought a fresh voice to the world of chamber music. Having played together since the age of fifteen, they tackle a remarkable variety of repertoire - Brahms, Nielsen, Scandinavian folk tunes, jazz standards - with equal thoughtfulness and rigor. The Danish String Quartet recently performed on NPR's popular Tiny Desk Concerts series, where they were lauded for their 'warmth, wit, beautiful tone, and technical prowess.' In Durham, these four exceptional and energetic players dive into an all-Beethoven program, starting with the composer's mastery of the form in op. 18 and culminating in the complexity and emotional depth of two of his colossal late quartets, op. 135 and op. 131. The latter is routinely considered Beethoven's most strikingly innovative achievement, with its nearly improvisatory wanderings between permutations of its central themes. Stravinsky once called it 'perfect, inevitable, inalterable.'
