Diversity

Monday, February 2, 2015 - 12:00 pm

Lisa Jepsen, associate professor of economics, will present "Women and Law School." Faculty, staff, students, and the public are welcome.

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 - 7:30 pm

Australian filmmaker Genevieve Bailey traveled the world for six years talking with 11-year-olds to compose this insightful, funny and moving documentary portrait of childhood. From an orphanage in India, to a single-parent household in inner-city Melbourne, to bathing with elephants in Thailand, I AM ELEVEN explores the lives and thoughts of children from around the world. I AM ELEVEN weaves together deeply personal and at times hilarious portraits of what it means to sit at this transitional age. These young minds provide us with a powerful insight into the future of our world. As straight up and personal as the ’7 Up’ series, and with the comedy and honesty of ‘Spellbound’, this documentary enables us to explore an age where these ‘not quite kids, not quite teenagers’ briefly linger, between the frank openness and sometimes naivety of childhood, and the sharp and surprisingly brave wisdom and knowing of adulthood. As much as it is a story about them, it is a story with them, of what it is like to be eleven today. The film is 94 minutes long and is appropriate for middle and upper elementary school students. Tickets are $10. 

This event is sponsored by the Educational Psychology and Foundation's Development Team, the COE Diversity Committee, and the Women's and Gender Studies Program.
