Examples of nanoscale structures include films, nanoclusters, nanoparticles, nanocrystals and nanotubes. Shand will discuss the physics and applications of magnetism at the nanoscale. Technologies based upon nanoscale magnetism will be discussed as well as current research in magnetic nanostructures at UNI.

Inspired by the sounds of our state, Jonathan Chenette’s Rural Symphony is a whimsical depiction of life on the Iowa prairie. Antonín Dvorák’s American Suite, composed just after his stay in nearby Spillville, takes a panoramic approach to the richness of our country’s folk music. Aaron Copland’s signature poignant voice is front and center in rarely performed music from his opera The Tender Land, inspired by Midwestern American farm life.
The Interpreters Theatre presents Clogging the System, conceived, written and directed by undergraduate honors student Harrison Postler.
Clogging the System is set in the ubiquitous offices of corporate America. The play uncovers how deeply embedded shame is in our society. When office members arrive at their new building to discover fully public toilets (not restrooms) they are forced to confront beliefs that have been ingrained within them since birth. Viewed through a satirical lens, the play takes many various twists and turns as it explores how people confront the things that make them uncomfortable.
Doors open at 7 p.m.; admission is free with limited seating. Tickets are distributed at 6:30 p.m. first come, first served.
