What you see is not always what you get. American culture may be talking about equality between the sexes, but is it being promoted it its art? See for yourself at the Lionel Rombach Gallery between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Painting, photography, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture and installation will be carefully placed around the gallery space to manifest the title of "Bodies & Boundaries: The Construction & Articulation of Gender in Visual Culture." The works are original pieces by Chris Carls, Craig Cully, Adam Davis, Gregory Porcaro, Jody Servon, Franzie Weldgen, Shannon Miller, Jen Townsend and Walter Zimmerman - quite the variety, I'd say. The exhibition is sponsored by the UA Art History Graduate Student Association's 10th Annual Symposium. For more information, call 626-4215.
What climatic conditions does it take to grow garbanzo beans and coriander? Find out today at the Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Seminar. Learn all about foreign crop systems from visiting professor S.K.Yadav (Harayana Agricultural University, Hisar, Harayana, India ). He's endured a rather lengthy plane ride just to talk to you about "Agriculture in India" from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Show the man your appreciation by taking a seat in Room 440 of the Shantz building and listening attentively. There will be some free refreshments in it for you. Call Stephanie Wang at 621-1753 for more information.
A couple of naughty musicians lied to you when they said "You can't always get what you want." If you hone your communication skills to a razor-sharp edge, you, too, can cut through opposition of any size. Get the necessary training at the Negotiating Skills lecture in the Main Conference Room of the National Optical Astronomy Observatories. Judith Bassnett and Sandy Fagan (UA Human Resources Department) will show you how to effectively and gracefully (i.e., non-violently) work a crowd from noon to 1 p.m. Call Laurie at 621-1418 for details.
Turning theory on its figurative head, it's the Hydrology and Water Resources Seminar! Snag a coveted seat in Room 225 of the Mines and Metallurgy building this afternoon for a riveting lecture on "Minimum Relative Entropy and Probabilistic Inversion in Groundwater Hydrology." Allan Woodbury, professor and chair, faculty of Engineering Graduate Committee, Department of Civil and Geological Engineering, University of Manitoba, Canada (whew!), will start producing audible sound vibrations at 4 p.m. Naturally, the Department of Hydrology and Water Resources is the place you want to call for more information. The number is 621-5082.
Just when you think you've finished writing that 15-page research paper for your literature class, you read the fine print on the assignment sheet and realize that you need a damned bibliography. Pesky supplementary text, no? Find out how to compose these and other annoying tidbits (a.k.a., the abstract) at tonight's Writing About Literature Workshop. Kendra Gaines has kindly volunteered to step away from her desk at the Writing Skills Improvement Program to explain "Writing and Reading Abstracts and Annotated Bibliographies" from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Room 310 of the Modern Languages building. Further information is available by contacting Donna Rabuck at 621-5849.
