http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/branford-marsalis/view/2013-02-02?CalendarStart=201302

Grammy Award-winning saxophonist, National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master and Tony Award nominee Branford Marsalis is one of the most revered instrumentalists of his time. He has led a dizzying array of jazz ensembles from big bands to quartets, and has been a frequent soloist with classical ensembles. He has performed and recorded with Sting and the Dave Matthews Band; acted in films including Throw Mama From the Train and School Daze; composed the soundtrack for films such as Mo Better Blues; and was the original bandleader for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Live jazz doesnt get any livelier when this much-anticipated group - one of the most innovative and forward-thinking jazz ensembles today - takes the stage.

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.

Camera Buff (Amator), 1979 -- 117 mins.

Camera Buff is a tragi-comic exploration of the craft of filmmaking. Insightful and self-reflexive, this fictional film about a documentary filmmaker is commonly referred to as a watershed in Kieslowski's transition from documentary to fiction filmmaking.

8:00 pm - 9:30 pm - The Great Hall
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/russian-ballet-performing-sleeping-beauty/

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of perestroika in the late 1980s. At this moment in history, many of the great dancers and choreographers of the former Soviet Unions ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet, but to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept and embrace new developments in dance around the world. This breathtaking presentation of Sleeping Beauty set to the music of Tchaikovsky upholds the grand national tradition of Russian ballet.

Stories for Social Change

4:30 pm - 6:30 pm - Valley Performaning Arts Center, Lecture Auditorium Room 181

The Power of Stories for Social Change

The storytelling of everyday people can serve as a living record of the human experience.  By creating oral and visual histories we remove the filter of an accepted narrative about an individual's or a community's experience.

Stories surround us but what do they do beyond entertain us?  How do stories bring about social change?  Explore the use of stories in the classroom and in the community and bring the results to a day of "stories for social change" in public education.

Panelist: 

Dr. Stacy Holman Jones - Storytelling in Performance

Dr. Marcella De Veaux - Storytelling in the Classroom

Dr. Theresa White - Storytelling in Documentary Film

The panel will be moderated by Nate Thomas.

This event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 20, 2013 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the VPAC Lecture Auditorium, Room 181.

8:30 am - 3:30 pm - Northridge Center

Announcing the Department of Social Work's 4th Annual DIVERSITY DAY!

Hosted by the Department of Social Work featuring keynote speaker:  Tchicaya Missamou

Born into the Congolese wilderness, Tchicaya Missamou became a child solder at age 11.  As a horrific civil war loomed across his country, Missamou began using his militia connections to ferry jewels, cash, computers, and white diplomats out of the country.  By 17, he was rich.  By 18, he was a hunted man, his house destroyed, his family brutalized in front of him by his own militia.  By 19, he'd left behind everything he'd ever known, escaping to Europe and, eventually to America.  Incredibly, that was only the start of his journey.

Social Work's Fourth Annual Diversity Day will focus on the resilience of trauma survivors and provide education on evidence based trauma-informed interventions and assessment utilizing intersectionality and strengh-based perspectives.

The First Annual Maurice Amado Foundation Lecture in Jewish Ethics: "The Ethics of Wealth and Work" 

Work helps us to survive, acquire material comforts, and be secure and independent. We learn conflicting values from American culture and Jewish tradition about wealth and work. How do we reconcile them in our individual lives and in society? Dr. Jennifer Thompson, (Ph.D., Ethics and Society, Emory University), the new Maurice Amado Assistant Professor of Applied Jewish Ethics and Civic Engagement at CSUN, will help us explore these issues with the help of a variety of Jewish ethical texts.

Free public lecture. RSVP please (818) 677-4724 or email jewish.studies@csun.edu

"ToMAYto." "ToMAHto." Hybrid. Heirloom. Early Girl. Better Boy. Dr. Wyche's Yellow. Dorothy's Green. Black Prince, Mountain Princess. Determinate. Indeterminate. Fruit. Vegetable …

No matter what they are called or how they are classified, tomatoes are considered by many people as among the most rewarding of home-grown foods. However, the many varieties available to the Southern California gardener can be a confusing assortment of names and designations.

California State University, Northridge's next CSUN-al Gardening Series class will offer help to home gardeners in determining which variety, or varieties, are right for them.

Scott Daigre, proprietor of Tomatomania and owner of Powerplant Garden Design, will share his strategy on tomato growing, provide tips on maximizing yield and explain why some tomatoes have letters after their names.

Registration for the free class is required. Email botanicgarden@csun.edu to request a space in the class or for more information. Driving and parking instructions, as well as the class meeting location, will be sent upon registration.

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."

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).

11:00 am - 9:00 pm - USU Northridge Center
http://www.csun.edu/sustainability

The Institute for Sustainability is hosting its annual Water Day event on Wednesday March 20th in the USU Northridge Center (World Water Day- the official UN-designated day dedicated to water issues is March 22nd) from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. There are two separate sessions (to coincide with class times), from 11:00 - 12:15pm and from 12:30 - 1:45pm.

In the first session, you will have the opportunity to see if you can taste the difference between bottled versus tap water. We will also show (part of) the documentary "Tapped" which deals with the issues of bottled water and privatization of water, and have a facilitated discussion of issues surrounding bottled water including the results of the taste test.

In the second session we will discuss water for the developing world and will be hosting a presentation by the Thirst Project (www.thirstproject.org). Is the water safe to drink? Not for 1 billion people! What can YOU do? The Thirst Project raised $2.6 million and have given 100,000 access to clean water. Thirst Project was started by students just like YOU!

At 7pm in the USU Theatre, we will be co-hosting a film screening of "Over Troubled Waters" with Food and Water Watch. An engaging discussion with experts will follow the film. Find out about the state of out water and what you can do. The fate of California's water is in your hands!

Please come and invite your students to join us for this educational event.

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 VII & VIII (Dekalog VII & VIII) (1988) -- 120 mins.

The Decalogue continues with episodes seven and eight of the series. Decalogue VII concerns a woman abducting her own child, who has been raised by her parents as her sister, and Decalogue VIII is about the complicated issue of bearing false witness.

The Decalogue series concludes with Kieslowski taking on the coveting of another's wife in Decalogue IX, and the coveting of goods in Decalogue X. A powerful pair of films to close-out the series in a playful way and with a darkly comedic flourish.
