Exhibit: Saved from Drowning by Dan Hurlin

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Heimbold Gallery

Not open to the public

“In Donald Barthelme’s seminal 1968 Robert Kennedy Saved from Drowning, a narrator suddenly appears out of nowhere in the very last section of the short story and throws a rope out to the main character ‘K,’ who is close to being pulled under in a turbulent sea. With one end of the rope around his waist, the narrator braces himself against a rock and pulls ‘K’ out of the water, saving him from drowning.

“Like the narrator, I have spent my career as an artist dragging narratives to the shore, rescuing them from oblivion – saving them from being drowned in an ocean of both cultural and personal amnesia.” —Dan Hurlin

Seminar: "Drugs and the Brain" with Cecilia Phillips Toro

Virtual Web

Open to the public

/ Thursday

6:30pm-8:00pm

Join us for a seminar titled “Drugs and the Brain: How Psychoactive Drugs Alter Brain Activity” with Cecilia Phillips Toro, Biology Faculty. The nervous system is the ultimate target of many drugs: those taken to alleviate pain, to increase pleasure, or to transform perceptions. We will focus on the neurobiological effects of three common psychoactive drugs: caffeine, cocaine, and cannabis. We will discuss the natural sources of each drug, and how each one affects neurotransmitters present at synapses in particular parts of the brain. We will then see how understanding the cellular targets of these drugs can allow us to gain insight into the effects, both desired and undesired, of drug usage. We will see how caffeine inhibits sleep, why cocaine is so pleasurable and so addictive, and why cannabis broadly affects many brain functions, including memory, the desire to eat, and pain perception.

Seminar: "Shakespeare and the City" with Joseph Lauinger

Virtual Web

Open to the public

/ Saturday

2:30pm-4:00pm

The history of Western theater has always been associated with cities, their politics, their customs, their geography, their audiences -- and the price of admission. Since theater depends upon its paying audiences if it is to exist, does it merely reflect the values of the society that has created it, or is its function also critical, even subtly subversive, in an effort to persuade that society towards some ideal? Given that ancient Greek democracy gave birth to tragedy and comedy in civic praise of the god Dionysos - from a special coupling of the worldly and the sacred -- what happens when these genres recrudesce in the professedly Christian but paradoxically unsavory precincts that house the theaters of late Elizabethan London? We are lucky to have Shakespeare as our representative and articulate spokesperson for that theater in that city, and we can look in Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2, and The Merry Wives of Windsor for some answers to our questions. Seminar led by Joseph Lauinger, Literature Faculty.
