How to Be the Leader in your Life

Bates Meeting Room

/ Tuesday

5:30pm—6:30pm Add to calendar

Come hear Patricia Russo, Executive Director of the Women’s Campaign School at Yale describe exciting and easy ways in which you can take charge of your life, personally and professionally. This interactive workshop will help you to achieve your sense of your inner fabulous self. “Often, women feel less than, that we are not enough. We are filled with feelings of lack. How can we shine in the world, when inside we feel as if we are simply less? Most women have felt this way at some point in their lives. Let’s mine and shift that feeling so that the exceptional education you are receiving at Sarah Lawrence will be most magnificently magnified”, says Patricia Russo.

The workshop will include exercises on:

  • Managing stress
  • Practicing self-care
  • Finding your voice; making it matter
  • Stepping out of your comfort zone to take more meaningful risks
  • Feeling a sense of yourself: full, whole and complete

Kaća Bradonjić—Spacetime Continuum: An Illustrated History and Outlook

Science Center 103

/ Tuesday

5:30pm—7:00pm Add to calendar

Einstein’s general theory of relativity radically changed our understanding of gravitation, space, and time, showing that what we experience as gravity is a manifestation of the fact that we live in a four-dimensional spacetime curved by matter and energy.

This talk will review the evolution of our scientific understanding of space and time, describe some issues with the general theory of relativity, and introduce unimodular relativity, an alternative formulation of gravitation that may provide insights into how to approach these issues.

War of Two: Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, and the Duel that Stunned the Nation

Library Pillow / Great Room Room UL 201

/ Wednesday

5:00pm—7:00pm Add to calendar

This lecture explores the longstanding conflict between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr whose infamous duel left the Founding Father dead and turned a sitting Vice President into a fugitive. Sedgwick suggests that Hamilton saw Burr not merely as a personal rival but as a threat to the nation. Burr would prove that fear justified after Hamilton's death when, haunted by the legacy of his longtime adversary, he embarked on an imperial scheme to break the Union apart.

John Sedgwick is a journalist, novelist, memoirist, and biographer who has written or cowritten numerous books and many articles. He lives with his wife, the Time columnist Rana Foroohar, and her two children in Brooklyn.

Jacob Slichter: Reading Aloud

Reading our work aloud, in private and in front of an audience, is an important and often neglected practice. We'll look at some sample texts, talk about how to cultivate a deeper attention to what's on the page, and learn how to hear our own work so that others can, too.

Writer/musician Jacob Slichter is the author of So You Wanna Be a Rock & Roll Star (Broadway Books, 2004) and the drummer for Semisonic. In addition to teaching nonfiction at Sarah Lawrence, he blogs about the connections between writing, music, film, and other creative forms at portablephilosophy.com.

Aleksandar Diamond-Stanic—The Universe Needs Feedback: Problems with the Cosmic Fuel Supply

Science Center 103

/ Thursday

5:30pm—7:00pm Add to calendar

We live in a universe where only 5% of the mass-energy is in the form of normal matter and only 5% of the normal matter has managed to form a star or planet by the present day. This inefficiency challenges our understanding of what galaxies do with their supply of gas, the fuel for star formation. I will discuss how my research with ground- and space-based telescopes addresses this problem by studying how gas gets into galaxies, how it participates in star formation and black hole growth, and how it is returned to its galactic surroundings via feedback.
