Image for This Is Not A Self PortraitThis Is Not A Self Portrait

Saturday, February 15 - Saturday, March 29 All Day - Art Gallery (AG)
http://www.csun.edu/artgalleries

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15  4-7 pm

Curator Talk: Monday, February 17  10 am

Panel Discussion with Artists and Catalog Signing: Saturday, March 22 1 pm


Curated by CSUNâs Art History Professor Mario Ontiveros, this exhibition focuses on eight Los Angeles-based artists who reconfigure the genre of self-portraiture. Utilizing their body, their likeness, and/or the intimately personal, the artists encourage an investigation into representation that lingers somewhere between its construction in response to material, psychic, and sociopolitical conditions and those personas that one imagines, shuns and/or desires. Artists include Michael Alvarez, Yreina Cervantez, Christina Fernández, Harry Gamboa Jr., Sandra de la Loza, Shizu Salamando, Ana Serrano and Mario Ybarra Jr. A full color catalog on the exhibition will be available for purchase.


Gallery and gift store hours are Monday through Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m., and on Thursday, from noon to 8 p.m. For more information, call CSUNâs Art Galleries at (818) 677-2156 or visit www.csun.edu/artgalleries.

Image for In Protest: the Shifting Paradigms of Collective Social ActionIn Protest: the Shifting Paradigms of Collective Social Action

Tuesday, September 17 - Friday, July 25 All Day - Oviatt Library, Tseng Gallery
http://library.csun.edu/blogs/goingson/in-protest/

Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.

We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century

Thursday, February 20 5:00 pm - Friday, February 21 6:00 pm - University Student Union Theatre
http://hiphopthinktank13.org

The Hip-Hop Think Tank, Department of Pan African Studies, and numerous departments and campus units invite the CSUN campus community to its biennial conference titled, "Bridging the Gaps: Hip-Hop in the Age of Mass Incarceration and Deportation," scheduled for February 20-21, 2014 at CSUN.

"Bridging the Gaps" will bring together members of the Civil Rights, Black, and Brown Power movements with Hip Hop scholars, activists, and artists along with immigrants rights organizations to explore how they are responding to the prison industrial complex, war on drugs, anti-immigration legislation, and the overall criminalization of communities of color. By illustrating the interconnections between "Stop and Frisk" in New York City, gang injunctions in Los Angeles, the "Papers Please" provisions in Arizona, South Carolina, and elsewhere, and the growing militarization of the US-Mexico border, the conference will highlight the denial of human rights experienced by each of these diverse communities, utilizing Hip-Hop social activism as our primary language.

The two-day conference begins with an opening reception, film festival, and talk by Hip-Hop activist and 2008 Vice Presidential candidate for the Green Party, Rosa Clemente, on Thursday, February 20th in the USU Theater from 5-10pm. On Friday, February 21st, the conference continues at 9am with an opening keynote by Dr. Victor Rios, Professor of Sociology at UC Santa Barbara and author of Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys. The day will continue with a series of panels and workshops with Hip-Hop scholars, activists, artists, and community organizations, such as Dr. Shana Redmond (USC), Dr. Melina Abdullah (CSULA), Dr. Denise Sandoval (CSUN), Boots Riley, Olmeca, Cihuatl Ce, Jasiri X, Luis Rodriguez, the Gr818ers, the Pico Youth and Family Center, Youth Justice Coalition, CURB, Tia Chucha's and many others. The conference culminates with a keynote address by Elaine Brown, former chair of the Black Panther Party, followed by a closing reception and open mic celebration. We sincerely hope that you will join us for this amazing conference.

Psychology Department Spring Speaker Series

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm - Sierra Hall 322

The Psychology Department would like to invite students and faculty to a presentation delivered by Nikki Sullivan this Friday as part of the Psychology Department Spring Speaker Series. Nikki is a doctoral candidate at Caltech where she works with Professor Antonio Rangel. Nikki's research concerns neuroeconomic decision making.

Many choices in life have two features: trade-offs and future consequences. For example, selecting carrots instead of a brownie may require self-control, but will pay off in the long run. Similar trade-offs exist when saving for retirement. How and why some individuals are better at these choices than others? This talk will present two studies in two domains requiring control: dietary and inter-temporal choice. In the first study, we combine a dietary choice task with a novel form of computer mouse tracking. This allows us to pinpoint when different attributes of the choice (such as the taste and healthiness of the foods) are being integrated into the choice processes with millisecond temporal resolution. We find that 20 - 40% of observed individual differences in self-control ability can be explained by differences in the relative speed with which taste and health attributes are processed. In the second study, we compare brain activity during an inter-temporal choice task across adolescent, adult, and elderly age groups to understand how monetary self-control changes with age. We find that discounting decreases monotonically with age, and that age-related changes in brain structure and functional activation and connectivity help explain this age-related increase in control.
