That Supreme Court ruling was in turn legislatively nullified by the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the first major piece of legislation President Barack Obama signed into law. Ledbetter will speak about "Equal Work, Equal Pay" on March 6th in the Grand Salon at 4 p.m., after which there will be a Q&A and a signing of her new book, Grace and Grit.

Rushing Waters, Rising Dreams: How the Arts Are Transforming a Community

The Northeast San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles is the second largest community of Mexicans and Central Americans in the United States with 500,000 people. The book explores twenty years of how the lack of neighborhood cultural spaces adversely affects struggling families and communities, and how the example of Tia Chucha's inspires a cultural awakening and a revival of the economy and community spirit. The book speaks to a need for a national arts policy of cultural spaces, arts education, independent bookstores, public art projects, and more.

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

Women in Ancient Syria

4:00 pm - 6:00 pm - Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451

The Department of History is hosting a lecture by Dr. Mark Chavalas of the University of Wisconsin-LA Crosse.  Dr. Chavalas is a distinguished alumnus of the History Department, and taught here as a part-time faculty between 1985 and 1989.

In the past forty years, Syria has become a major center of archaeological investigation.  Among the thousands of cuneiform tablets excavated at the cities of Mari, Emar, Ebla, Terqa, and Shubat-Enlil, are a large number of letters concerning women during the first half of the 2nd millennium B.C., contemporary with Hammurabi's Babylon.  This talk will provide a glance at the life of women from these letters, some of which were written by women themselves.

Mark W. Chavalas is Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where he has taught since 1989.  His Ph.D. is from UCLA, where he studied ancient Near Eastern history, archaeology, and languages, specializing in Mesopotamia.  He has had fellowships from various universities, including Harvard, Yale, Cal Berkeley, Brown, Cornell, the Univ. of Arizona, and Wisconsin-Madison.  He also has had nine seasons of archaeological field experience in Syria.  His previous books include the co-edited New Horizons in the Study of  Ancient Syria (1992), Mesopotamia and the Bible (2002), Life and Culture in the Ancient Near East (CDL Press 2003), Emar:  The History, Religion, and Culture of a Syrian Town in the Late Bronze Age (1996), and Women in the Ancient Near East (in press).

8:00 pm - 9:15 pm - Nordhoff Hall (NH) Little THeatre NH121
http://www.csun.edu/theatre

The year was 1967. While playing a rabbit in a Winnie-the-Pooh play here on campus, 22-year-old senior David Gerrold wrote and sold what was to become one of the most beloved Star Trek episodes ever: The Trouble with Tribbles.  Mr. Gerrold’s career as a writer has since spawned more than 50 novels, a dozen-plus teleplays, and the film The Martian Child, starring John Cusack, based on Gerrold’s autobiographical tale of a single gay man adopting an at-risk youth.  It earned Gerrold both the coveted Hugo and Nebula Awards.

Now the year is 2013 and Mr. Gerrold is back at his alma mater, back on the same theatre stages that launched his career, workshopping a new play entitled UNCLE DADDY WILL NOT BE INVITED.  The one-act production looks at two men planning their wedding--or so it appears on the surface.  Audiences are well cautioned that all is not as it seems. 

 The two performances, 8pm on April 30th and May 1st, promise to be some of the hottest tickets in town and cetain to sell out.  Touted in Variety and other industry media, the $12 general admission tickets will soon go on sale but CSUN students can get the advance seats now for $5 by showing their ID at the Student Union Ticket Office. The performance itself takes place in Nordhoff Hall’s Little Theater (NH121).

Hosted by Associated Student’s Theatre Guild, the play is directed by Gerrold and stars two current student actors: Steven Brogan and Alex Manolopoulos, previously seen this semester in CSUN’s RAGTIME and ROMEO & JULIET respectively.  Producers for the Guild are Brianna McDonnell and Daniel Guerrero, and Cara Failer is the Stage Manager.  Audiences are cautioned about mature themes and adult language.
