BLACK BREAD (Pa negre) Agustí Villaronga / Spain / 2011 Andreu comes across the bodies of a father and son in the forest. Leaning over the dying boy, Andreu hears him whisper “Pitorliua,” the name of a monster supposedly haunting local caves. But the real monsters in this brilliant adaptation of Emili Teixidor’s novel are the local Fascists, who keep close watch on the family of Andreu and other Republican sympathizers and who think Andreu’s father might know more about these murders than he admits. Reminiscent of Pan's Labyrinth and adored by audience and critics alike, Black Bread won an unheard of number of prizes, including 9 Goya Awards. Spanish selection for the 2011 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film.

Event Image How to Forecast What We Can't See
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

In chess, each player sees the positions and moves of his or her opponent. In card games, each player sees his or her cards, and possibly the used cards, but does not see unused cards of the opponent. We say that chess is a fully observable system, and card games are partially observable systems. There are many partially observable systems in nature. For example, in a weather system, we can measure specific quantities at specific time and location, such as temperature, wind speed, but the continuous true system state is unobservable due to our incomplete knowledge about the nature and the errors in modeling process. In a stock market, the stock prices are observable, but investor beliefs, which help drive prices, are not observable. In target tracking applications, the data collected through sensors is observable, but the dynamic position of the target is unobservable. Professof Cheng will talk about the application of mathematical and statistical techniques to the estimation and forecasting of the unobservable part from the observable part, when both parts evolve randomly over time, and will report on her research in this area.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.

Samhain (pronounced "Sow-hen" or "Sow-in") is Celtic New Year and is one of the four major holidays of Wicca. At this time, the God passes into the otherworld to be reborn to the Goddess at Yule. The division between the worlds is thin, and it is a time to remember one's ancestors and to reflect on the past year. (Samhin is generally celebrated on Oct. 31, although some traditions prefer Nov. 1.)

Event Image Dynamics and Problems of Using Games to Teach
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

This presentation will argue for the usefulness of games as an educational device. We begin by discussing the nature of games and describing the student’s “game experience” in the classroom. Then we will make some assertions about how the game experience might be expected to contribute to the learning process - including the leveraging of scholastic motivations that games may offer on the basis of social and phenomenological factors. The features and properties of a specific form of game, which may be most useful in the classroom, called the “Fully Human Interactive Game,” are surveyed. We conclude with a discussion of some of the problems which may accompany using games to teach.
A Public Concert of the Traditional Chinese Music
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

The history of Chinese music is as long and diverse as other aspects of Chinese culture. From the earliest folkish clay-vessel-flute xun to the highly ethical seven-string qin, from the indigenous bamboo flutes from Yunnan to the borrowed two-string “Chinese violin” erhu through the Silk Road, traditional Chinese music represents an integrated cultural entity that is thriving in modern times. The featured traditional instruments in this concert are the qin (or guqin, Chinese lute), zheng zither, erhu, and a few other instruments. While the musicians are based in Portland area, this concert will also include a live performance, via Internet, by a troupe from Yunnan led by Mr. Su Xing, who has made some of the instruments in the Exhibition.
