Lost Stages and Words: A Historical Perspective of Ottoman and Turkish Theater

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2018-11-07 17:00
John Hope Franklin Center, Ahmadieh Family Conference Hall, Room 240
Ahmadieh Family Conference Hall
The speakers will provide a historical overview of the development and changes that have occurred within Ottoman and Turkish theater from the late 19th century to the present. The changes that have occurred since the founding of the Turkish Republic in 1923 are profound. While much literature delves into the politics, demographic shifts and transfers, the power of theatre is often neglected. Thus, how do theatre and history help each other to remember and construct experience? How have different memories, historiographies, and actors clashed in recent history? How has Istanbul, as the center of power and cosmopolitanism, itself become an arena of struggle? Indeed, since the 1990s Turkish theatre has witnessed a rise in independent companies and playhouses, the rebirth of the theatre scene in Istanbul/Turkey with new playwrights, new plays and new techniques. However, this is not without its struggles as theatre, much like literature is often seen by particular governments as subversive. The speakers will contextualize these issues within the context of struggles in today's Turkey.

SSRI-Gross Hall 270
This workshop offers an overview of program evaluation, or the systematic investigation of the merit, worth, or significance of a program. Topics covered will include: when and why to conduct evaluation; types of evaluations; key aspects of an evaluation, including logic model development, data sources and data collection, analysis and reporting, and guiding resultant programmatic change; and tips for feasibly and effectively implementing evaluation at a program or organization. This workshop focuses on evaluation from the perspective of programs or organizations and will be of particular interest to people working in such settings who are looking to learn more about evaluation, but it is also relevant to undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, or other researchers who are interested in evaluation and applied research. Registration required; please click "More Information" below to access the registration form.

BRITE Ideas: Think, Pair, Panic: How Socially Anxious Students Perceive Active Learning Techniques

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2018-11-06 17:00
Rubenstein Library 249 (Carpenter Conference Room)
West Campus

Join BRITE Ideas as we welcome Steven G. Buzinski, Teaching Associate Professor, Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies, and Karen M. Gil Internship Director in the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Professor Buzinski will discuss the basics of social anxiety, how it might influence students in our increasingly active classrooms, and present findings from three empirical studies investigating the relationship between social anxiety and students’ experience of active learning techniques. Prevalence rates of social anxiety appear to be higher in college than at later times in life (Heimberg, Stein, Hiripi, & Kessler, 2000), and while social anxiety has been studied thoroughly in the context of mental health outcomes (e.g., loneliness, substance abuse), its role in the active learning classroom has not been adequately explored. Socially anxious individuals tend to feel higher levels of distress in situations with the potential for negative social evaluation, a tendency that has been shown to increase anxiety-responses (e.g., sweating, flushing) and distract from present awareness (Brown & Ryan, 2003).

 

Please feel free to bring your lunch. Light refreshments will be provided.
