Begeman Lecture Series

Dr. Timothy Gay, Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will present a lecture titled "Why Isn't God Ambidextrous?" Gay will discuss the idea of nature being "handed," and apply that handedness concept to agriculture, biology, chemistry and physics. He will also discuss new physics experiments on chirality that may reveal how life began on Earth. 

Dr. Gay is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. He is as well known for his groundbreaking research on atomic collisions and polarized electrons as he is for his entertaining expositions on the physics of football.

Teacher Education Induction Convocation

The College of Education will host its bi-annual Teacher Education Induction Convocation. Two-hundred and twenty-eight students have satisfied requirements for admission into the UNI Teacher Education Program, and are invited to participate in the formal ceremony, the official induction of students into that field of study. DeWitt Jones, associate professor, Educational Leadership and Postsecondary Education, will deliver the convocation address. This will be the 47th group of candidates inducted into the Teacher Education program since formal ceremonies began in 1991. Parents and friends of the candidates are invited along with UNI faculty and administrators.  A reception will follow in the GBPAC lobby.

Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture - “Guerillas in the Knit: Guerilla Knitters, Yarn Bombing, and Craftivism in Contemporary North America”

Marybeth Stalp, associate professor, Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology, and Therèsa M. Winge, assistant professor of apparel and textile design, Michigan State University, will present “Guerilla Knitters, Yarn Bombing, and Craftivism in Contemporary North America”

Sending knitted uteri to the US Congress. Angering the US Olympic committee. Vandalizing public spaces. Twisting everyday objects into subversive ones. What do all of these things have in common? Crafters! That’s right, knitting and crocheting have been making a youthful and public comeback since the 1990s, through the work of guerilla knitters, yarn bombers and craftivists. In 2004, we began following this seemingly innocuous phenomenon--handcrafting, and will share in this presentation our research experiences with craftivists, including local and global examples.
