2013 Leonard Bloomfield Book Award

Behavioral and Social Sciences Building
The Linguistic Society of America will present the 2013 Leonard Bloomfield Book Award to HSU Anthropology Professor Victor Golla 4 p.m. March 8 in the Behavioral & Social Sciences Building, Room 310.

Golla’s book, “California Indian Languages” (University of California Press, 2011), is the fourteenth publication to receive the Bloomfield award since its creation in 1990.

The award is granted to the foremost volume that contributes to the understanding of language and linguistics, through its “exemplary scholarship, enduring value, novelty, empirical import, conceptual significance, and clarity.”

In announcing the award to Golla, the selection committee called “California Indian,” a remarkable piece of documentary linguistics, and “the reference of first resort” for neophytes and experts on indigenous California languages.

The award commemorates the eminent linguist Leonard Bloomfield, a founding member of the LSA and the author of “Language” (1934), one of the most influential books in American structural linguistics.
4:00 pm-5:00 pm

Biological Sciences Seminar Series

HSU Campus
Dr. Heather Eisthen, of Michigan State, presents, "Tainted Love: Olfactory detection of tetrodotoxin in rough-skinned newts."

Dr. Eisthen's research focuses on the olfactory system and behavior in amphibians. Current studies involve axolotls, Ambystoma mexicanum, and rough skinnned newts, Taricha granulosa. Dr. Eisthen uses a combination of techniques and approaches, including behavioral observation, electrophysiology, neuroanatomy, molecular biology, and developmental manipulation.

Gist Hall Theater
Is the 21st century a classic farce? Or just high fashion high school?

HSU Theatre, Film & Dance presents the West Coast premiere of Hater, Samuel Buggeln’s 21st century translation of Moliere’s comedy The Misanthrope, directed by Michael Fields. Featuring Charlie Heinberg as Alex, the compulsive truth-teller who helplessly offends people, and Johani Guerrero as Celine, the beautiful flirt and acid-tongued gossip that Alex can’t do without.
8:00 pm

Humboldt Symphony

Fulkerson Recital Hall
Humboldt Symphony performs Beethoven’s greatest concerto, the Emperor, with student concerto competition winner Levi Walls at the piano. Other selections are Handel’s Water Music Suite, the Karelia Suite by Sibelius, and The Creation of the World by Darius Milhaud, a jazz-influenced piece from the 1920s that has probably never been performed before at HSU because of its complexity. But this semester, a perfect combination of advanced players on the required instruments will make this a concert highlight. The Humboldt Symphony is conducted by Paul Cummings, and the concert is produced by the HSU Music Department.
