Mark Myers, associate professor of biology, will present Assessing the Wildlife Habitat Value of Diverse Prairie Plantings Managed as Agroenergy Crops in an Agricultural Landscape.  Bring your lunch; cookies will be provided.

Myers' research aims to determine optimal methods for managing tallgrass prairie vegetation as an agroenergy crop while maintaining high-quality habitat for native wildlife.  For the past 5 years, he and his students have annually monitored habitat conditions and bird and butterfly community dynamics at an experimental research site to explore the prediction that more diverse agroenergy crops will support a greater abundance and diversity of wildlife over time.

Abby Helgevold, department of philosophy and world religions, will present a lecture titled "Good Sex: It's About More Than Just Pleasure."  Is bad sex better than no sex at all?

Sunday, March 8, 2015 - 7:00 pm

Christian responses to the Nazi regime reveal much about that era and raise important issues for our own times. To explore the variety and significance of these responses, this program will feature the film “Theologians under Hitler,” which tells of three noted German theologians who, to various degrees, supported Nazism.  The session will also include a panel discussion, followed by general discussion.

The March 22 program will offer, for those who are interested, additional opportunities for discussion of issues raised by this history and their relevance to today’s world.

This event is sponsored by the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education, St. Luke's Episcopal Church and the Department of Philosophy and World Religions. The event is free and open to the public.

The Reaching for Higher Ground Film & Discussion Series explores topics related to the 2014-15 RHG theme Media and Social Media: A Networked Society.  

This evening Miss Representation will be screened and serve as the basis for personal reflection and dialogue: “Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss Representation uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.”

The RHG Film & Discussion Series is co-sponsored by the UNI Center for Multicultural Education and UNI Rod Library.  All series events are free and open to the public.
