The Adams Gallery at Suffolk University presents The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History, a photography exhibit that challenges viewers to think about what they see when they look into this mirror onto an earlier time. Interactive elements suggest reflection about how one sees race – in oneself and in others.

The exhibit includes daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes and other forms of early photography as well as prints from tintypes made by an Air National Guardsman deployed to Afghanistan. Ed Drew’s modern-day tintypes are believed to be the first battle zone photographs using this method since the American Civil War.

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Food for Thought: Cheese Rinds as Model Microbial Ecosystems
Location: Fenton 603A

Biology Department Lecture
Dr. Benjamin Wolfe is a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University Center for Systems Biology. Although humans have utilized microbes to make fermented foods for thousands of years, we know little about the diversity of food microbial communities or the factors that shape this diversity. Bacteria and fungi colonize the surface of naturally aged cheeses and form multi-species biofilms (rinds). Using next generation sequencing, we have assessed the taxonomic and functional diversity of rind microbial communities from 137 artisan cheeses made across Europe and the United States. Our work show that most microbes found were not intentionally inoculated into the cheese and highlights the importance of microbial that migrate from raw material and the environment into the assembly of the cheese communities. Free and open to the public; refreshments will be provided.


1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Psychology Department Doctoral Faculty Meeting
Monthly meeting of the faculty of the doctoral program in clinical psychology. Rescheduled from 2/13/14.
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Religion and Politics in Kant
The Suffolk Philosophy Society and the Philosophy Department present an event in the Philosophy Colloquium Series featuring Pablo Muchnik of Emerson College.
 
Abstract:  Liberalism often considers religion as an eminently private matter, something to be kept within the confines of one’s own conscience and abandoned when entering the public square. This talk turns to Kant to examine the assumptions underpinning such a view and considers whether religion has an essential political role to play or is, as some liberal theorists would suggest, a transitional genre, doomed to gradual extinction and secularization. 
 
Refreshments will be served.

Annie Baker (The Aliens) and Artistic Director Shawn LaCount reunite with this hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

“Annie Baker, one of the freshest and most talented to emerge Off Broadway in the past decade, writes with tenderness and keen insight. Her writing is a great blessing to performers.
