Colorado College Events https://www.coloradocollege.edu/newsevents/calendar/events-rss.html Colorado College Events "Women in Combat: A Conversation with Female Soldiers" Wed, 19 Dec 2012 09:59:05 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-30-women-in-combat-a-conversation-with-female-soldiers https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-30-women-in-combat-a-conversation-with-female-soldiers <p><em>Wednesday, January 30, 2013 6:30 PM</em></p><p>Women make up approximately 20 percent of our military service personnel. What are the unique challenges that our female soldiers face?&nbsp;&nbsp;A diverse panel of female soldiers will share their own personal stories of war, friendship and daily life. &nbsp;They will also share their unique experiences as members of the Warriors Transition Battalion, as all of these panelists work to provide support for other soldiers, male or female, who are recovering physically and psychologically from the traumas of combat.&nbsp;From the dramatic life-or-death moments in the combat zone, to the more mundane moments of working in a large bureaucracy and struggling to earn advancement in a traditionally "male" profession and striking a balance between work and family life, these women have compelling stories to tell. Jessica Copeland, director of CC's Collaborative for Community Engagement, will moderate. Light refreshments will be served. &nbsp;</p> "History, Irony, and Satire in the 'Cuándo' Ballads of New Mexico and Colorado" Mon, 17 Dec 2012 15:59:28 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-31-history-irony-and-satire-in-the-cu-ndo-ballads-of-new-mexico-and-colorado https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-31-history-irony-and-satire-in-the-cu-ndo-ballads-of-new-mexico-and-colorado <p><em>Thursday, January 31, 2013 12:00 PM</em></p><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><![endif]--> <p class="MsoNormal" >The guest speaker for this month&rsquo;s Aficionados Lecture and Luncheon series is Enrique Lamadrid, a cultural historian, musicologist, and distinguished professor of Spanish from the University of New Mexico.&nbsp; Professor Lamadrid will present the narrative ballad tradition of New Mexico and southern Colorado. This millennial tradition is as old as the Spanish language itself, yet continues to express the historical imagination of the people. Some ballads are centuries old, and others were written last week. Ballad stories range in topic from historical topics of wars, terrorism, social struggle, and natural disasters, to themes of love, betrayal, and even women&rsquo;s rights. <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><![endif]--></p> <p class="MsoNoSpacing">Cost to attend is $17 (includes buffet lunch).

After a tour of duty in the U.S. Army, he graduated from the University of California with a degree in anthropology and attended graduate school at Columbia University. Uninspired by the prospect of an academic career, he dropped out and moved to a Buddhist monastery in Taiwan. He lived with the monks and nuns for four years, then worked at English-language radio stations in Taiwan and Hong Kong, interviewing local dignitaries and producing more than 1,000 programs about his travels in China. His translations include Chinese classical texts, poetry, and Buddhist sutras such as the Taoteching, the Heart Sutra, and Collected Songs of Cold Mountain. He currently lives in Port Townsend, Wash.

A large tech company is about to release an irreversible ear-implant device that will help you hear things your brain wants to hear, and tune out those things it doesn't want to hear. But there's a bit of a problem: don't agree with someone? Your device will tune them out. Not even your choice. Some consider this a violation of free speech, and begin to boycott its release.&nbsp;<br /><br />This new musical is filled with rock, rap and even a little electronic music, and includes a diverse cast of characters: an inexperienced police marshal, an entertainment "journalist," a president nostalgic for his days on Broadway, a driven and uncompromising protest leader, a pop star turned activist, and an ego-maniacal and dictatorial First Lady. What happens next between these characters and others in reaction to the impending release of the ear-implants is the plot for: HEAR NO EVIL IN THE YEAR 2090.&nbsp;<br /><br />Music and Lyrics by Wes Brandt (CC '14)<br />Book by Wes Brandt with David Parker (Carnegie Mellon University '15) and Patrick Lofgren (CC '14)<br />Directed by Kevin Dorff (CC '14)</p> "An Evening of Romances and Inditas" Thu, 17 Jan 2013 15:35:12 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-02-01-an-evening-of-romances-and-inditas https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-02-01-an-evening-of-romances-and-inditas <p><em>Friday, February 1, 2013 7:30 PM</em></p><p>The Hulbert Center for Southwest Studies presents this concert by Brenda Romero as part of the 2012-13 Andrew Norman Lecture and Concert.&nbsp;Brenda Romero is an associate professor of music at the University of Colorado-Boulder and is well known for her renditions of early folksongs of New Mexico. Her performance will offer a brief sampling of <em>romances</em> (early Spanish ballads), but will focus largely on <em>Inditas</em> (literally &ldquo;Indian maidens&rdquo;), including songs of captivity and a variety of other songs that John Donald Robb, Enrique Lamadrid, and Romero have categorized as <em>Inditas</em>.&nbsp;She will discuss the genre and what it reveals about intercultural dynamics and the complexity of New Mexican identities.&nbsp;</p> <p>Accompanying Romero will be Rebecca Oertli. Lauded for her&nbsp; "intimidating mastery" by the New York Press and as the violinist for "the best chamber concert of the year" by Austin Critic's Table, Oertli has performed as a soloist and chamber musician throughout the U.S., Canada, Japan, and Europe.</p> <p class="MsoNoSpacing">This concert is open to the public.

It carries and embodies core teachings of Mahayana Buddhism, and yet many know little about its provenance, meaning, or power. Here is a chance to hear about this beautiful and potent sutra from one of its foremost translators in the West. As Porter says, "The Heart Sutra encapsulates that moment when Mahayana Buddhism first arose and delineates how it differs from what came before. If the wisdom teachings of Prajnaparamita are the mother of buddhas, then the Heart Sutra is their womb."</p> <p >Bill Porter is an American author and translator of Chinese and Sanskrit texts who translates under the name &ldquo;Red Pine.&rdquo; He was born in Los Angeles in 1943 and grew up in Idaho. After serving in the U.S. Army, he graduated from the University of California with a degree in anthropology. He then dropped out of graduate school at Columbia University and moved to a Buddhist monastery in Taiwan. Porter lived with the monks and nuns for four years, then worked at English-language radio stations in Taiwan and Hong Kong. His translations include Chinese classical texts, poetry, and Buddhist sutras such as the Taoteching, the Heart Sutra, and Collected Songs of Cold Mountain. He currently lives in Port Townsend, Wash.<a name="0.1__GoBack"></a></p>
