Thursday, March 7th is the 8th Annual Technical Symposium hosted by the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, its alumni chapter, and its student association. Nanotechnology (one nanometer is one-billionth of a meter) is an emerging industry that involves the control of atoms and molecules to create new materials with a variety of useful functions. As concerns grow about their effects on living organisms and the environment, the symposium brings together experts to shed light on these tiny chemical messengers. Among the line up of nationally recognized speakers is Tony Machado (EOH) who also organizes the event with the Alumni Chapter President, Bob Finkelstein.

15th Annual Keith Morton Memorial Lecture

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm - Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451
http://www.csun.edu/csbs/departments/anthropology/index.html

You are invited to join the Department of Anthropology for the 15th Annual Keith Morton Memorial Lecture, to be delivered by Dr. Normal Yoffee, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology and Near Eastern Studies, University of Michigan and now Adjunct Professor of Anthropology, University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Senior Fellow, Institute for the Study of the Ancient world, NYU.

Professor Yoffee will speak on "The Evolution of Fragility" in the context of sociopolitical and economic systems. He writes, "Archaeologists and others have characterized ancient states and "complex societies" as "integrated." That is, religious and political institutions recombined various social and economic groups into functioning wholes, either through consensus or repression. This process of integration has been described as "social evolution." In this talk, I examine these common suppositions. I begin with Mesopotamia, the region of my specific research, but drift dangerously into areas far from my expertise. Many early societies were far from integrated and stable, but the opposite, fragile. I explore the nature and implications of social fragility."

Please RSVP to the Department of Anthropology:  818-677-3331

KRZYSZTOF KIESLOWSKI RETROSPECTIVE

Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski was a leading director of documentaries, television and feature films from the 1970s to the 1990s. The social and moral themes of contemporary times became the focus of his many significant films and his unique humanist treatment of those themes secured his place as one of the greatest of modern film directors.

Decalogue III & IV (Dekalog III & IV) (1988) -- 120 mins.

The Decalogue continues with the next two episodes, Decalogue III, which tells the story of a chance encounter between a married man and his former lover, and Decalogue IV, where Kieslowski takes on the commandment to honor one's mother and father.
