Geology Colloquium: Dr. Catherine Dieleman, University of Guelph. "A tale of permafrost ice and fire"

Our KU Geology Colloquium guest on Thursday, January 24, will be Dr. Catherine Dieleman, University of Guelph. Dr. Dieleman will present: "A tale of permafrost ice and fire: How changing disturbance regimes are reshaping boreal carbon dynamics." The circumpolar boreal forest represents the world’s largest terrestrial biome, maintaining one of the greatest land-bound carbon stores on the planet. However, the increase in wildfire frequency and rapid permafrost thaw is expected to increase boreal carbon emissions, potentially transitioning the biome into a globally relevant carbon source. To estimate future carbon emissions and better define the resultant carbon-climate feedback there is a need to first characterise the effects of contemporary disturbance regimes on the mechanisms that govern carbon dynamics. As part of NASA’s Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) we targeted southern boreal forests already subject to higher frequency fire regimes to quantify the above- and belowground carbon… Organization: GEOLOGY DEPARTMENT.

KINO Film Series: "Hammer and Sickle" (Russia, 1994, 93 mins)

The KINO Film Series present the first movie in its Legacies of Stalinism series this spring: "Hammer and Sickle" (dir. Segei Livnev, 1994, Russia, 93 minutes). "Sergei Livnev’s Hammer and Sickle emphasizes the artificiality of high Stalinism by drawing attention to the stylized nature of Stalinist cultural production. Centered on a successful sex-change operation, the film stresses the constructed and performative nature of the Stalinist gendered subject. In spite of the film’s focus on stylization and gender performativity, the film is essentially anti-camp because, in its search for authenticity, it refutes both the Stalinist high style and Soviet gender performance. Following the protagonist’s transformations from peasant woman to model Soviet man and, finally, to a living museum, the three parts of the film fall into three genre categories: science fiction, ironic comedy, and melodrama. Set in the 1930s, the film tells of a state-sponsored sex-change operation. When a young peasant woman, Evdokiia… Organization: RUSSIAN, EAST EUROPEAN & EURASIAN STUDIE.

Annual Betty Bunce Multicultural Lecture: Julie Washington, Ph.D., Professor & Chair, Georgia State University

Language Differences: A Help or a Hindrance for Teaching Poor Children to Read? The use of cultural dialects among poor children has been implicated as problematic for growth of many language-dependent skills, including reading.  Recently, however, the importance of identifying linguistic strengths within dialect has been discussed as important to consider. Can community languages be used to support reading skill development? This talk will explore the role of our assumptions about language and its speakers and how the deficit thinking that can result from these assumptions may influence outcomes.  The talk will be telecast to the KUMC Campus, 2004 Orr Major.

ABOUT THE BOOK, A virulent strain of antifeminism is thriving online that treats women’s empowerment as a mortal threat to men and to the integrity of Western civilization.

In 'Not All Dead White Men,' Zuckerberg dives deep into the virtual communities of the far right, where men lament their loss of power and privilege and strategize about how to reclaim them.

KINO Film Series: "Thief" (dir. Chukhray, Russia, 1997, 96 mins)

CREES presents the second film in its Legacies of Stalinism KINO Film Series: "Thief" directed by Pavel Chukhray, 1997 (96 minutes). From Janet Maslin's NYT movie review: "The first thing the handsome stranger steals in the Russian film "The Thief" is the devotion of Katya (Ekaterina Rednikova), a dewily beautiful young mother. The year is 1952. Katya and her 6-year-old son, Sanya (Misha Philipchuk) are traveling by train when they meet a flirtatious army officer named Tolyan (Vladimir Mashkov), who turns out to be a dangerous fraud. Except for the charm, nothing about Tolyan is what it seems. It takes time for Katya to detect this, time spent settling into a precarious domesticity that is one of this film's best aspects. The director, Pavel Chukhrai, brings a novelistic sense of detail to evoking the dailiness of Soviet life under Stalin's regime. Drawing on his own childhood memories, he presents the bustle of communal apartments, the backdrop of grandiose Stalinist architecture, the disruption of… Organization: RUSSIAN, EAST EUROPEAN & EURASIAN STUDIE.
