In keeping with the Black Studies tradition, which is deeply rooted in struggles for justice, inclusion, and freedom, we seek to use our expertise toward the end of equipping students with the analytical tools necessary to effectively respond to contemporary crises.

Douglas Niedt, A Classical Guitar Performance

Douglas Niedt, A Classical Guitar Performance

April 16, 2015
2:30 PM
Ellis Library Grand Reading Room

Douglas Niedt made his New York debut at the age of twenty-one in Cargegie Recital Hall. Since then he has appeared before enthusiastic audiences across the country, promting one critic to write,"Mr. Niedt is not only a brilliant master of his instrument, but a performer of great sensitivity. The wealth of sound and the dynamic finesse which he elicits from the guitar make him a worthy companion of the few great guitarists such as Andres Segovia and Julian Bream." His performance will be followed by a question and answer session and a light reception.

Genes, Culture and Evolution

Genes, Culture and Evolution

Lecture by Dr. Karthik Panchanathan
Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology
Monday, March 9, 2015

Epigenetics refers to the study of traits that are heritable but not caused by changes in the DNA sequence. And, in some cases, events that happen during an individual’s life can sometimes result in epigenetic changes that are subsequently heritable. This is a form of Lamarckian inheritance, the idea that an organism can pass on characteristics that it acquired during its lifetime to its offspring. Humans are unique among animals in the degree to which adaptive behavior is shaped by both genes and culture.

Is Liberal Education Out of Style?

Is ‘Liberal’ Education Out of Style?

A conversation with UM President Emeritus Mel George and Interim Deputy Provost Patricia Okker. Jim Cogswell, Director of MU Libraries, moderating.

Stotler Lounge, Memorial Union
3-4 pm, September 16, 2014

This event was sponsored by the MU Libraries on the occasion of the 175th Anniversary Commemorative Week.

The word “liberal” has a nomenclature problem – it carries baggage for some people because of its political connotations. What does a “liberal education” really mean? The origin of the word is the Latin word “liber” (free), and the history of the concept goes back at least as far as ancient Greece. A common misunderstanding is that the concept describes specific subject matter (such as “Great Books”); but a liberal education is less about specific subject matter content than about the goals and emphases of the education.
