Special Relativity is something you can understand without any math or science background. In this class you will gain a conceptual understanding of Einstein's theory that rocked our view of space and time. Learn to use and make your own spacetimeometer. Come for a fun look at a very different way of seeing the world. Phillip Lazzar is excited about teaching you this subject. After decades of trying to learn it himself and failing over and over again, he finally got it and what a thrill to finally understand. As it turns out, it is not that difficult when properly explained.

Sexland: (A)sexual Film Screening

Gist Hall Theater
Facing a sex obsessed culture, a mountain of stereotypes and misconceptions, and a lack of social or scientific research, asexuals—people who experience no sexual attraction—struggle to claim their identity.

(A)sexual follows the growth of a community that experiences no sexual attraction. In 2000, David Jay came out to his parents. He was asexual and was fine with it. And he was not alone. Studies show that 1% of the population is asexual. But in a society obsessed with sex, how do you deal with life as an outsider? Combining intimate interviews, verite footage, and animation with fearless humor and pop culture imagery, David and our four other characters grapple with this universal question and the outcomes might surprise you.
8:00 pm

Stephen Hough, Piano

Fulkerson Recital Hall
With a singular vision that transcends musical fashions and trends, Stephen Hough is widely regarded as one of today’s most important and distinctive pianists. In recognition of his achievements, he was awarded a prestigious MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship in 2001, joining prominent scientists, writers and others who have made unique contributions to contemporary life. Mr. Hough’s recent recording of the complete Saint-Saëns Piano Concertos was named best recording of the past 30 years at the Gramophone Awards, while his live recording of the Rachmaninoff Piano Concertos became the fastest selling CD in his record company’s history.
