January 2011 Archives

The Tucker Center is pleased to announce its first annual Film Festival, taking place on February 1, 2011 at 7:00-9:00pm, in the DQ Club Room at TCF Bank Stadium.

The event, presented by the University of Minnesota Athletic Department, kicks off the 25th annual celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) and will feature the Minnesota sneak preview of Sony's The Mighty Macs. The event will also feature sneak previews of a trio of documentaries that celebrate girls and women in sport. Clips from Goals for Girls, Sync or Swim, and Kick in Iran will precede the feature presentation.

Set against the backdrop of the 1972 feminist movement, The Mighty Macs tells the inspiring true story of Immaculata College's women's basketball team and their road to winning the first national championship in women's college basketball. It stars Carla Gugino in the lead role of Cathy Rush, as the head coach, and includes a star-studded cast including Academy Award Winner Ellen Burstyn, David Boreanaz, and Marley Shelton.

Tickets for the film festival are on sale now here. $8 online, $10 at the door based on availability.

The Tucker Center Film Festival is one of more than 1,000 events taking place across the country for National Girls and Women in Sport Day. Congress has proclaimed this national day each year since 1987. It recognizes the progress of girls and women in sports and the benefits that sports and fitness activities can bring to the lives of all girls and women. The Day is organized nationally by the Girl Scouts of the USA, Girls Incorporated, National Association for Girls and Women in Sport, the National Women's Law Center and the Women's Sport Foundation.

A Sip of Science: Road de-icing salt impact on Twin Cities Waters. This event is being held Feb. 9, 5:30 p.m., in the Aster Cafe, at 125 SE Main Street, St. Anthony Main. This is Free and held every second Wednesday. This series bridges the gap between science and culture in a setting that bridges the gap between brain and belly. Food, beer, and learning are on the menu in a happy hour forum that offers the opportunity to talk with researchers about their current work, its implications, and its fascinations.

The Feb. 9 event addresses the nearly 350,000 tons of road salt applied for de-icing in the Twin Cities metro area every year. The salt keeps our roads safe during winter, but where does it all go when the ice melts? Civil engineering professor Heinz Stefan will talk about the effects of road salt on local water quality and the steps that could be taken to address the issue. Sponsored by the National Center for Earth-surface Dynamics (NCED).

Upcoming Leadership/Volunteer Study Abroad Opportunities

| No Comments

Here are three opportunities that should motivate you to do something with your time off. If you haven't made plans for spring break, there is no better way than spending it in Central America. You will be doing some good and fit in some time to go to the beach. Also, if you haven't decided what you're doing after finals consider an enriching leadership class traveling to Ireland or South Africa.

Spring break in Costa Rica or Guatemala
In a nutshell, the trip is going to be a combination of meaningful volunteer work, relaxation, and some pretty exotic excursions including a full day at a gorgeous beach. The group will be working very closely with a community-based non-profit organization to ensure that the volunteer work we do will actually have a serious positive impact. And it's going to be fun. You'll be living within a community, with many chances to interact with the locals.

This won't be the typical vacation that most of the students here at the U of M have. Unlike being a traditional tourist, each person will actually form relationships with the local community, gain incredible intercultural experience, learn more about themselves, and make a real difference.

If you're interested, find out more information here or feel free to email Amanda Bot with any questions at botxx009@umn.edu.

If you would like to Apply Now please click here.

Martin Luther King Jr. Concert- Sunday, January 23rd

| No Comments

The 2011 MLK Celebration will take place on Sunday, January 23, from 4-6 p.m. at the Ted Mann Concert Hall.

When the University of Minnesota's Martin Luther King Day concert began in 1980, it was the only tribute of its kind in Minnesota. The late Reginald Buckner, a professor in the School of Music--and an accomplished performer, composer, and educator--founded the concert and began a tradition of celebrating the life and accomplishments of Dr. King through performing arts.

Professor Buckner's death in 1989 left the University with an inspiring legacy--the annual celebration that marks its 30th anniversary in 2011. The Martin Luther King celebration is now a joint program of the University of Minnesota's Office for Equity and Diversity and the School of Music.

Contact Ralph Blanco at rblanco@umn.edu or 612-625-8680 for details about this event or view the event site here. View a summary of the previous 28 MLK concerts.

Queer in the Twin Cities- Book Discussion

| No Comments

Members of the Twin Cities GLBT Oral History Project will discuss their work in Queer Twin Cities on Monday, January 24 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis. The Twin Cities GLBT Oral History project--a collective organization of students, scholars, and activists devoted to documenting and interpreting the lives of GLBT people, presents a collection of essays on Minnesota's vibrant queer communities, past and present.

Queer Twin Cities is a rich blend of oral history, archival research, and ethnography that uses sexuality to chart connections between people's lives in Minnesota. This collection delivers a critical analysis of local history and community, and fills a glaring omission in the culture and history of Minnesota. Contributors include Kevin P. Murphy, an associate professor of history at the University of Minnesota, and Jennifer L. Pierce, a professor of American studies and the former director of the Center for Advanced Feminist Studies at the University of Minnesota. Contributors will sign copies of the book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to order a signed copy visit www.bookstore.umn.edu/genref/authors.html.
