11:00 amThe Loving Generation Film Series Orange Carpet
Join The Office of Intercultural Life in a 4-day viewing of the short film series "The Loving Generation." In 1967, the Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia overturned all laws outlawing interracial marriage. The Loving Generation tells the story of a generation of Americans born to one black parent and one white parent. Their narratives provide a fascinating and unique window into the borderland between “blackness” and “whiteness,” and, in some cases, explode fixed ideas about race and identity. Each day ICL will show a new segment from the series. The film will loop throughout the lunch break. The viewings will begin on Monday, Feb. 26. 2018 at 11am on the OC and continue through the 1st of March. ***Sponsored by the Office of Intercultural Life***
11:10 am-12:00 pmSIG (Science Interest Group) Lecture: Diversity West Science
Title: Diversity Speaker: Marty Condon Abstract: Nobody knows how many species exist on Earth today. Most discovered terrestrial species are tropical insects. Estimates suggest that only about 10% of those insect species have scientific names. Our work continues to reveal extraordinary and unexpected levels of tropical insect diversity. We find many more ecologically specialized species than anyone predicted. Why? We want to explain unexpected patterns of diversification (evolutionary processes) and patterns of coexistence (unexpected local ecological patterns of diversity). In this SIG, I will emphasize not only the diversity of insects, but also the diversity of people who contribute to our team effort to reveal the dimensions of biodiversity.
