Jonathan Biss: Celebrating Beethoven Part 2

In celebration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, we continue our exploration of his piano sonatas, one of the most important collections in the history of music, with acclaimed pianist and Beethoven expert Jonathan Biss. This evening, the second of two programs, features music written over three decades, spanning the beloved “Moonlight” sonata to the other-worldly Opus 109. Biss writes, “Each of these earlier sonatas reveal hidden motives — like compositional Easter eggs. But nothing quite prepares you for the impact of the later work. It suggests an entire emotional universe and, in the way only Beethoven can, conjures the infinite.”. Campus location: Meany Hall (MNY). Event types: Performances.

Linguistic and Racial Justice for English Learners/Multilingual Students in Higher Education, Speaker: Manka Varghese, professor, UW College of Education Students who are linguistically othered are often racially othered as well.

Educators should acknowledge and engage the various resources these students bring, such as: how to use different languages in different contexts and for different audiences; how to use their languages as an integrated communication system; and other types of resources from their communities. Finally, Prof. Varghese calls on universities and colleges to advance educational equity and justice by building frameworks for teaching, conducting research, and creating programs that center emergent multilingual students’ postsecondary transitions and experiences.

In Plain Sight

This museum-wide exhibition engages artists whose work addresses narratives, communities, and histories that are typically hidden or invisible in our public space. The presenting artists approach the exhibition’s theme from a range of directions, varying across all media as well as aesthetic and conceptual contexts. Works encompass deliberately activist endeavors; the unpacking of individual histories excluded due to race, ethnicity, or class; explorations of coded language for protection, secrecy, or both; the illumination of invisible or covert systems of labor, exploitation, and capitalist control; and translation through surreal, oblique, or fantastical frameworks. Campus location: Henry Art Gallery and Allen Center for The Visual Arts (HAG). Event types: Exhibits. Twitter: #In_Plain_Sight. Wednesday, January 22, 2020. For more info visit henryart.org.

'Tokyo 2020+: Urban Identity in the Era of Globalization' with Shunya Yoshimi of the University of Tokyo

Within a mere quarter century, Tokyo emerged from the ruins of the second world war to become a metropolis of 10 million people. During this period, the once-capital of a military empire experienced U.S. occupation, hosted the Olympic Games, and transformed into a hub of economic wealth. Professor Yoshimi will share a selection of archived films and photos to illustrate what happened in postwar Tokyo as its people experienced a tremendous confluence of cultures, economic expansion, upheaval of classes, and changes in the physicality of the city. Looking at the city with its many layers, topographies, and military occupations over time, Yoshimi shows us how these temporalities may shape what Tokyo is to become in the era of globalization. Shunya YOSHIMI is Professor of Sociology, Cultural Studies, and Media Studies at the University of Tokyo. He is the author of many books on cultural theory, urban culture, international expositions, media culture, information technology, the emperor system, and… Campus location: Architecture Hall (ARC).

'The Scales of History' with Shunya Yoshimi, University of Tokyo

Since the mid-1990s Japan has faced the end of an extended economic bubble, economic decline, widening income gaps, declining birthrates, aging population, and the major disasters of 1995 and 2011. For these reasons, the Heisei era (1989 to 2019) is often called the "Lost 30 years." In this lecture, Professor Yoshimi gives context to this era by showing the resonance between generational cycles and cycles of global history through his 'scales of history' framework in which he views centuries-long histories in 25-year segments. Shunya YOSHIMI is Professor of Sociology, Cultural Studies, and Media Studies at the University of Tokyo. He is the author of many books on cultural theory, urban culture, international expositions, media culture, information technology, the emperor system, and Americanization in modern Japan and East Asia.

CEI Interdisciplinary Seminar: Mark Hersam, Northwestern University

Stabalizing and Enhancing Lithium-Ion Batteries with Chemically Inert 2D Materials Efficient energy storage systems represent a critical technology across many sectors including consumer electronics, electrified transportation, and a smart grid accommodating intermittent renewable energy sources. Arguably, the most important advance in energy storage over the past three decades is the lithium-ion battery, which was recognized with the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. However, despite its many successes, issues related to safety, energy density, charging time, and operating temperature range have hindered the large-scale adoption of some of the most revolutionary lithium-ion battery technologies such as electric vehicles and grid-level storage. Nanostructured materials were once thought to present compelling opportunities for next-generation lithium-ion batteries, but inherent problems related to high surface area to volume ratios at the nanometer-scale (e.g. undesirable surface chemical interactions betwee… Campus location: NanoEngineering and Sciences Building (NAN 181).
