11:10 amBig Stories From Tiny Minerals West Science
"Big Stories From Tiny Minerals: Using Mineral Age to Answer Major Tectonic Questions in the Western Gneiss Region, Norway." Presented by Emily Walsh, Associate Professor of Geology. The Western Gneiss Region of Norway is one of the largest and best-studied ultrahigh-pressure terranes in the world. Within the Western Gneiss Region are rocks that were subducted to mantle depths (>150 km beneath Earth’s surface) and that were subsequently returned to Earth’s surface. The tectonic mechanisms at work during this subduction and exhumation process have significant implications for understanding the fundamental characteristics of crust and mantle worldwide. In this talk, I will present recent mineral age data from across the Western Gneiss Region and our interpretations for exhumation processes based on those data.

8:00 pmThe Cornell College Department of Theatre Presents a Staged Reading of Virtue Armstrong Hall
The Cornell College Department of Theatre would like to announce the upcoming staged reading of Tim Slover's Virtue. Passionate and iconoclastic mystic Hildegard von Bingen is almost as well known today as she was in her own 12th Century. Today we know her principally because of her extraordinarily beautiful music. Then, she was famous throughout Europe for her visions and as the only woman to have her writings read aloud in synod by the Pope, himself. In Virtue, Hildegard is preparing to complete her book of revelations and present it to the Holy See when a penitent named Richardis arrives at her monastery and profoundly disrupts her world. Virtue tells the story of what happened. The staged reading will take place Thursday, November 14th at 8:00 pm on the Cornell College campus in the Plumb-Fleming Studio Theatre. Admission is free and open to the public. Audiences are invited to remain in the theatre for a talk-back with the cast, playwright and director following the reading. This event is intended for mature audiences. Those with questions are encouraged to contact Janeve West jwest@cornellcollege.edu.
