Block 7
If you never had the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument in school, here’s your chance. In just one block, you will perform in a recital on three different instruments as a soloist or as part of an ensemble. You will also learn how to teach these instruments to beginners while exploring some of the ways we learn and how we benefit from the study of music. Benefits include understanding different symbols for communicating ideas, learning to overcome frustration, and collaborating with others for learning and performing, and thinking creatively.
This class is required by the Colorado Department of Education to receive music teacher certification, but you can also take this class just because you want to.

In this talk, professor Wendy Pearlman, from Northwestern University, will present her new book “We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled: Voices from Syria,” a collection of testimonials from more than 400 displaced Syrians across the Middle East, Europe, and the United States since 2012. Called “essential reading” by the New York Times, the book is a mosaic of stories and reflections that express the human dimension of the Syrian uprising, war, and refugee experience, exclusively through the words of ordinary people transformed by these events.

“When Does the Public Care? The Importance of Security Policy to the Public”

What mobilizes the public to demand their leaders take action in other countries experiencing conflict? I use paired public opinion surveys and elite policymaker interviews from the Republic of Georgia to explore when the public demands intervention in other countries. I show through survey evidence that the public wants intervention in external conflict cases if those cases were covered by the media and trigger feelings of group solidarity. Then using evidence from my elite interviews, I establish the public as an actor whom elites listen to in these rare, yet salient cases.

NEW COURSE OFFERING–GR220: Afro-Culture as Knowledge Culture: Black Knowledge Production in Germany

Please be aware of this new course being offered in block 6 by Visiting Scholar, Artist, and Activist Dr. Natasha Kelly. “This course will place the past, present, and future of Black Germans in a global context through studying the life and works of Black scholars and activists W.E.B. Du Bois, Audre Lorde, and May Ayim. Our class will interrogate current political debates about race and the “racial turn” in Germany and challenge the supposedly objective nature of Eurocentric knowledge production. Drawing on narratives of colonial de_perception, we will critically examine the persistence of coloniality in German society and media. Furthermore, we will consider the role that coloniality has played in preventing the incorporation of Black knowledge into the scholarly archive and rendering a Black perspective on the world impossible.”
