There will be free pizza.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">Some people&nbsp;have criticized the effectiveness of the &ldquo;aggressive,&rdquo; &ldquo;polarizing,&rdquo; &ldquo;confrontational&rdquo; rhetoric a generalized group of people&nbsp;uses on the campus of Colorado College (CC) while&nbsp;advocating&nbsp;<em>feminism</em>. Those critics, who see&nbsp;<em>second-wave feminism</em>&nbsp;in this day as a sort of chauvinism and&nbsp;<em>third-wave feminism</em>&nbsp;as a form of humanism, have urged that the&nbsp;students of CC embrace the&nbsp;<em>third wave</em>, abandoning the&nbsp;<em>second wave</em>. However, some people of the aforementioned group that is generalized as belonging to the&nbsp;<em>second wave</em>&nbsp;argue that the&nbsp;<em>second wave&nbsp;</em>is still relevant in this age and that their rhetoric is only thought-provoking; they also do not&nbsp;consider&nbsp;<em>third-wave feminism</em>&nbsp;a&nbsp;<em>feminist activism&nbsp;</em>that has a direction and effective&nbsp;means.

"Memories and Well Grounded Hopes"&nbsp;features all new music by the Klezmer fusion band Hal Aqua and The Lost Tribe, as well as Colorado College's own renowned composer Ofer Ben-Amots. Jerilyn Jorgensen, <em>violin</em>; Jeffrey Watson, <em>cello</em>, and Susan Grace, <em>piano</em>, will perform. These new projects grew out of the production, "A Journey of the&nbsp;Human Spirit," which was presented in January 2013 in collaboration with Central City Opera, The Colorado Symphony, The Mizel Arts and Culture Center, and The Newman Center.&nbsp;Learn more about Wonderbound at <a href="http://wonderbound.com/home/">http://wonderbound.com/home/</a></p> <p>Over the course of five years, the artistic vision of Garrett Ammon and Dawn Fay has helped to define Wonderbound, formerly known as Ballet Nouveau Colorado, as a creative leader in the state of Colorado. By collaborating with artists across a spectrum of mediums, they have created transformative experiences that upended notions about how dance can be created and shared in the community.</p> Marty Baylor: A Dynamical Systems Approach to the Cocktail Party Problem Mon, 09 Sep 2013 11:11:10 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-09-13-marty-baylor-a-dynamical-systems-approach-to-the-cocktail-party-problem https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-09-13-marty-baylor-a-dynamical-systems-approach-to-the-cocktail-party-problem <p><em>Friday, September 13, 2013 12:00 PM</em></p><p>"Have you ever been at a noisy party and been able to pick out what the person in front of you is saying? If so, then you are intimately aware of the fact that your brain is able to solve the cocktail party problem. How does your brain separate one signal from a mixture of signals? I have no idea, but I have been working with a half optical, half electronic system that is able to mimic that behavior.&nbsp;The system uses a special holographic crystal in a feedback loop to solve the cocktail party problem without any a priori information about the unmixed signals or how they are mixed together. By analyzing the dynamics of the feedback loop, we have discovered that under cer- tain conditions the feedback loop likes to separate signals. I invite you to come and find out about this truly fas-cinating system and hear&nbsp;some of the audio demosdemonstrating its signal-separating prowess. I willalso briefly discuss my ef-forts to miniaturize useful&nbsp;optical systems like this us-ing light-sensitive polymersso that they can be used in&nbsp;everyday life." - Baylor</p> CC Men's Soccer Thu, 15 Aug 2013 13:23:33 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-09-13-cc-men-s-soccer https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-09-13-cc-men-s-soccer <p><em>Friday, September 13, 2013 2:30 PM</em></p><p>CC Men's Soccer v.
