A pesar de ello, el estudio de su identidad y cultura es una cuesti&oacute;n bastante reciente. Hasta hace poco, la representaci&oacute;n de la voz del gitano en Espa&ntilde;a ha estado fundamentalmente secuestrada por las clases dominantes y solo en casos muy especiales, especialmente relacionados con la producci&oacute;n musical y siempre bajo los auspicios de los poderosos, se ha podido o&iacute;r su propia voz como pueblo. La presentaci&oacute;n se ocupa de la formaci&oacute;n de la identidad gitana mediante la representaci&oacute;n generalmente estereotipada de autores literarios de origen no gitano en los siglos XVI y XVII. Igualmente se tratar&aacute; el desarrollo de la voz gitana y su situaci&oacute;n actual tomando como caso espec&iacute;fico la comunidad roman&iacute; sevillana y su integraci&oacute;n dentro de la sociedad espa&ntilde;ola del siglo XXI.&nbsp;</p> Audition for "All in the Timing" Tue, 19 Feb 2013 16:14:44 MST <p><em>Tuesday, March 5, 2013 3:00 PM</em></p><p>Audition for "All in the Timing"</p> <p>Written by David Ives</p> <p>Directed by Kate Aronson</p> <p>8th block production sponsored by the Theatre and Dance Department</p> <p>More information and a sign-up sheet outside Cornerstone 320</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Auditions:&nbsp;</p> <p>Tuesday, March 5th, 3:00-6:00 PM</p> <p>Wednesday, March 6th, 3:00-6:00 PM</p> <p>Thursday, March 7th, 3:00-6:00 PM (callbacks)</p> <p>Friday, March 8th, 3:00-6:00 PM (callbacks, if needed)</p> Amnesty International Compassion Panel Thu, 28 Feb 2013 08:38:09 MST <p><em>Tuesday, March 5, 2013 7:00 PM</em></p><p class="MsoPlainText">Join sociology professor Matt Bakker, journalism professor Diane Alters, anthropology professor Christina Leza, CC sophomore James Kiawoin, and Air Force cadet Mahhad Nayyer for a panel discussion on compassion discourse and how the media portrays the suffering of individuals from developing nations.

Thomson of the University of New Mexico will deliver the annual J. Glenn and Ursula Gray Memorial Lecture.&nbsp;Professor Thomson, a scholar of Continental philosophy who is among the most prominent younger philosophers working in the legacy of Heidegger&rsquo;s thought, will present a talk entitled, &ldquo;Thinking Love: Heidegger and Arendt.&rdquo;&nbsp; A recipient of the Gunter Starkey Award for Teaching Excellence from the University of New Mexico&rsquo;s College of Arts and Sciences, he is renowned for his ability to bring Heidegger's difficult ideas to life for contemporary students.&nbsp;Professor Thomson is the author of "Heidegger on Ontotheology: Technology and the Politics of Education"&nbsp;(Cambridge University Press, 2005), and "Heidegger, Art, and Postmodernity" (Cambridge University Press, 2011). His essays have appeared in leading scholarly journals, essay collections, and reference works, and they have been widely reprinted and translated into seven languages. He is currently writing a philosophical biography of Heidegger as well as a study of Heidegger&rsquo;s phenomenological understanding of death and its philosophical impact.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">In his talk, Professor Thomson will explore the nature of romantic love as it developed between Martin Heidegger and Hannah Arendt, whom Heidegger later called &ldquo;the passion of his life.&rdquo; Three different ways of understanding love can be found at work in Heidegger and Arendt&rsquo;s relationship: the perfectionist, the unconditional, and the ontological models of love.&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal">This lecture is made possible by generous support of the J.
