Dan Flores, the A. B. Hammond Professor Emeritus of Western History at the University of Montana, will give a talk entitled:

“Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural History” (based on his recent book of the same title)

at 7:00PM Tuesday, February 6th in the Screening Room, Cornerstone Arts Building

Legends don’t come close to capturing the incredible story of the coyote in North America. In the face of centuries of campaigns of annihilation employing guns, gases, helicopters, and engineered epidemics, coyotes haven’t just survived, they’ve thrived, expanding across the continent from Alaska to New York. In the war between humans and coyotes, coyotes have won, hands-down. “Coyote America” is the illuminating five-million-year biography of this extraordinary animal, from its origins to its apotheosis.

“Leonard Bernstein at 100” is a Colorado College Music Symposium taking place the first week of block 6 (February 22-24).

An on-campus interview with Jamie Bernstein, presentations by nationally-recognized music scholars, and a concert of seldom-heard Bernstein works are all part of the proceedings.

Registration is required, but free for all those with a CC Gold Card. Just use the discount code “LBCC2018” at checkout when completing the online registration.

As one of the most celebrated figures of the twentieth century, Bernstein left his musical mark on the seemingly separate realms of the concert hall, musical theatre, television and film, as well as criticism. In the spirit of Bernstein’s own educational mission, this public musicology conference aims to share academically oriented insights on this popular figure and his output in an accessible and approachable manner.

Interested in experiencing ancient archaeology this summer? Join Excavating Israel: The Archaeology of Ancient Judaism and Christianity – Religion 200 / Classics 222 / History 200 – Summer Session A, May 25 – Jun 25. ***

Course Description:
This course centers on student participation in archaeological excavations at Shikhin, an ancient Jewish village in the Galilee region of Israel. Through this field experience, students will gain training in essential methods and theories of archaeology as well as insights into the history, culture, politics and economics of the region during the Hellenistic and Roman periods. With an understanding of these contexts, students will examine the related histories of early Judaism, the ministry of Jesus, and Christian origins. In addition to their experience in the field, students will learn through assigned readings, regular evening lectures, excursions to other significant historical sites in the region, and a final weekend exploring Jerusalem. The course will be especially attentive to the benefits and challenges of correlating ancient literary sources, including biblical narratives, with the archaeological record. ***

This course offers fantastic opportunities to:
(1) participate fully in an archaeological excavation (www.samford.edu/arts-and-sciences/excavations-at-shikhin);
(2) learn about Hellenistic and Roman history, culture, and religion, especially in relation to early Judaism and the beginnings of Christianity;
(3) tour and study a range of related ancient sites in Israel, including Roman Caesarea on the Mediterranean Sea;
(4) reside in Nazareth, in the Galilee region, and experience the local culture;
(5) visit Jerusalem and develop an understanding of its rich history and continued significance for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. ***
