    For more than a century, the College of the University of Chicago has been an innovator in the cause of liberal arts education in the United States. Since the 1930s, the College curriculum has built upon an intellectual foundation that emphasizes rigorous analysis of evidence, free debate, and the ability to formulate one’s own creative questions by drawing from the most important works of world civilizations. The Core curriculum uses the perspectives of multiple disciplines but is fixed to none, a method that provides opportunities for critical reading, lively discussion, and collective experimentation in the pursuit of discovery and knowledge. In this lecture, John W. Boyer and John D. Kelly will discuss the innovation and evolution of the Core curriculum.

We do not, however, know exactly what dark matter is, how it behaves, or how it was created in the early universe. In this presentation, Daniel Hooper will explain why we are so sure that dark matter exists and describe how recent experimental results have given us reason to think that this substance may be very different than we had long imagined.

    Gallery Tour of Cecilia Vicuña: PALABRARmas
    Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, 5701 S. Woodlawn Ave.

    Join Neubauer Collegium curator Dieter Roelstraete for a private tour of the current gallery exhibition Cecilia Vicuña: PALABRARmas. New York–based Chilean artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña has been working across a wide range of media since her debut as a painter in the highly politicized context of early 1970s Chile. This exhibition will be the first to focus solely on her “Palabrarmas,” visual anagrams made in exile in London and Bogota after the 1973 Pinochet-led coup that are reminiscent of the concrete poetry idiom so popular at the time. The titular neologism is a contraction of palabras (words) and armas (weapons), a nod to the militant slant infusing so much progressive Latin American art in the era of juntas. Vicuña’s Palabrarmas, however, are also eruptions of color and sensuous pleasure—words to live by.
