Face the effects of revolution this afternoon in room 100 (the basement) of the Martin Luther King building. Mark Q. Sawyer will ask and answer "The Race Question: Racial Hierarchy and the State in Post-Revolutionary Cuba" at noon. Further information about the speaker and/or topic is available by calling the Africana Studies Department at 621-5665.

The UA's number-crunchers are back on the catwalk today with their Program in Applied Mathematics Modeling Seminar. Actually, they won't be showing off designer clothes - they'll be presenting all kinds of theories and such instead. Join Orna Amir in room 402 of the Mathematics building at 12:30 p.m. for tips and helpful hints about "Nonlinear Gravitational Waves." Need some background information? Contact Kathleen Leick at 621-2016.

Get a mouthful of bug stuff as you try to pronounce the title of today's Entomology Department Seminar. Richard ffrench-Constant (University of WI, Madison) will teach you how to say such fifty-cent words as, "Novel insecticidal toxins from photorhabdus," from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. in room 230 of the Marley building. Rose Kilby will gladly fill you in on the details at 621-7165.

Since you got to see three foreign films for free this week, it's only fair that you should start paying again. Treats are treats, kids, not the norm. Trust me, though - the films showing at Gallagher Theatre tonight are definitely worth your $3.50 (or $4.50 if you aren't a student). The Middle Eastern Film Festival begins at 6 p.m. with "Divorce Iranian Style," a look at the real lives of Iranian women (as opposed to our horribly-oversimplified American versions). The film is in Farsi with English subtitles. Get up and stretch your legs after the movie, but stick around to catch "Date Wine," the story of an Egyptian man's struggle with village responsibility and individual desire, at 7:45 p.m. A portion of the festival proceeds will be donated to the Undergraduate Scholarship Fund. For more information, call Shirley Nellson at 621-5450, or the Gallagher Theatre Box Office at 621-3102.

What do Rapunzel, "The Man in the Iron Mask," and "Flowers in the Attic" all have in common? They are all tales of people locked away from society for one reason or another. Add to this list the story of "Kaspar Hauser," a young boy discovered in Germany who was unable to walk, write, or talk. Peter Sehr made a movie about him in 1994, and it's available for your viewing tonight at the German Film Series. See Sehr's vision of the boy's dungeon life from 7:30 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. in room 350 of the Modern Languages building. Barbara Kosta can tell you more at 621-7389.

See what happens when UA student musicians actually get to pick their musical companions tonight at the continuation of AZ JAZZ Week. Various Jazz Combos, hand-crafted student ensembles, will perform their own original work as well as the traditional favorites at 7:30 p.m. in Crowder Hall. Contact the Fine Arts Box Office at 621-1162 if you have any questions.
