This week is pretty exciting here at UND.
First, on Thursday afternoon, is the Seventh Annual Cyprus Research Fund Lecture by Erin Walcek Averett from Creighton University. Her talk is titled “Frightening the Frightful: Grotesque Visages from Ancient Cyprus.” and it should be super cool!
It’s at 3 pm in the beautiful East Asia Room in the Mighty Chester Fritz Library. For those of you who can’t make it to the University of North Dakota, please check out the live stream!
She’s also going to do a “brown bag” style afternoon seminar on Friday in O’Kelly 228. It’ll focus on her work with using new digital tools in the field and is titled: “Transdisciplinary Perspectives on Digital Tools: Perspectives from the Field.” Should be fun!
Finally, everyone should come out to an “Evening About Fracking” on Saturday night at the North Dakota Museum of Art. The evening will feature readings from the new book Fracture: Essays, Poems, and Stories on Fracking in America edited by Taylor Brorby, Alison Hawthorne Deming, Debra Marquart, and Kathryn Miles. Hors D’Oeuvres start at 5 and frack-talking begins at 6 pm. The talk is part of the AHA! Talks series from the College of Arts and Sciences at UND. It’s also supported by the North Dakota Humanities Council. Here’s the flyer:
