Not to dampen your 'I'm no longer an undergraduate peon!' elation (if that is your case), but you've got a lot of hard work ahead of you in grad school. And whether you're interests lie in English or agriculture, you're gonna have to know how to write. Start early by attending Kendra Gaines' Graduate Writing Workshops. Tonight from 4 p.m. to 5:15 p.m., she'll be preparing you for 'Writing a Master's Thesis or Dissertation Proposal.' Get the essential facts in room 410 of the Modern Languages building. More information about this and other Writing Skills Improvement Program/Graduate College-sponsored seminars, call Donna Rabuck at 621-5849.
Attention classics majors! Here's your chance to compare Greek and Roman mythology to the tales of another country. See how Zeus and Hera hold up to the creation story of Malagasy tonight at the Africana Studies Department's Black History Month Film Series. 'Angano...Angano Nouvelles de Madagascar: Tales from Madagascar' will be presented in room 100 of the Martin Luther King building at 4 p.m. Call the department at 621-5665 for details.
Tonight marks the UA's key crusade against violence. Show your support and Take Back the Night from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the Mall. This is a coed demonstration, so boys, get out there. The event is sponsored by the Campus Acquaintance Rape Educators and ASUA's Women's Resource Center. Contact Whitney Grese at 621-4679 for more information.
The best seven days in the spring semester is definitely Spring Break. However, there is a runner-up: AZ JAZZ Week. And it starts today. AZ JAZZ I is kicking off the festival tonight with guest artist Ellen Rowe, jazz pianist and composer. She's a whiz, I tell ya. Judge her merits for yourself at 7:30 p.m. in Crowder Hall of the Fine Arts Complex. Ticket prices are unbeknownst to me, but may be knownst to you by contacting the Fine Arts Box Office at 621-1162.
Just because you inexcusably missed yesterday's showing of 'Blue' doesn't mean you can't redeem your reputation by catching 'White' tonight. These two films form a major fraction of Kryzystof Kiewlowski's brilliant trilogy, 'Blue, White, Red'- two-thirds, in fact, for those of you who are long-finished with your math requirement. The flick starts rolling at 7:30 p.m. on Gallagher Theatre's humongous screen. It's all part of the Eye on Diversity Foreign Film Cycle. Oh, yeah - it's free, too. More information can be obtained by calling 621-4678.
So far, the Voices of the American West reading series has been comprised of writers from all over the expansive region. If you are yearning for some local perspective, come to tonight's segment of the program. Luis Alberto Urrea, a former Tucsonan, will be reading something from his vast collection of nonfiction, novels, short stories, and essays at 8 p.m. in the Modern Languages Auditorium building. Give a faculty member of the English Department a well-deserved pat on the back on your way in or out, because without them this experience wouldn't have been possible. Talk to event organizer Richard Shelton at 621-1836 if you have questions.
