25:A Virtual Reconstruction of Leonardo's Last Supper
 
Presenter(s): Dr. Justin Underhill
 
This lecture will launch a new series of guest lectures covering topics in Art History sponsored by the Art Department. Description of Lecture: 3D digital documentation of the build environment is a tool regularly encountered in disciplines such as archaeology, historic preservation, and urban planning. Despite the methodological proximity of the history of art to these fields, virtual reconstruction and visualization have yet to be critically examined for the methodological contributions they might make to art-historical investigation. This talk will serve as an introduction to these technologies, seen through the lens of Leonardo da Vinci’s famous mural of The Last Supper in the refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. Advanced rendering software allows for the reconstruction the refectory as it stood when Leonardo painted the Last Supper, and demonstrates the complex interaction between light and space in the mural. This analysis illustrates how digital humanities might bridge traditional art-historical methods and forensic visualization. About the Presenter: Justin Underhill (PhD 2012) is a new media artist and art historian currently serving as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities at the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to his appointment at UC Berkeley, he served as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities at the Visual Studies Research Institute at the University of Southern California. He has had articles published in World Art, Leonardo, and has an article forthcoming in Konsthistorisk tidskrift. He is currently finishing a manuscript for a digital book publication, Light, Sound, and Depiction.

Presenter(s): Lynda Williams
 
The rush is on to mine asteroids for precious rare earth metals like platinum and gold. Last year, President Oboma signed the law, the US Space Act of 2015, granting property rights to materials that U.S Companies mine from asteroids, the moon, and other celestial bodies. With no public debate or international negotiation, the act unilaterally empowers private US space companies to keep whatever space booty they can grab. In honor of the UN World Space Week, SRJC Physics instructor and space activist, Lynda Williams, will explore the risks involved in the corporate space race to mine the final frontier.

Presenter(s): Catherine Sease of Yale University
 
The lecturer, Catherine Sease, is the Senior Conservator for the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University, and holds her degrees from the Institute of Archaeology at the University of London, and Bryn Mawr College, with additional studies at Wesleyan University and the University of Cambridge. She has had a distinguished career as a conservator of archaeological materials, both in museums (including the the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Field Museum) and at excavations throughout the Mediterranean and Near East. Her indispensable volume, A Conservation Manual for the Field Archaeologist, was first published in 1987, is in its third edition, and has recently been translated into Chinese. Abstract: Antiquities as Casualties of War We are all horrified by the recent destruction of antiquities and sites in the Middle East. Unfortunately, this is not a new phenomenon. Wars and the destruction, willful or otherwise, of antiquities have been going on for millennia. As an archaeological conservator, Catherine Sease has been involved in two cases where antiquities were the casualties of war and the accompanying civil unrest. In October 2003, she went to Baghdad to assess the conditions in the Iraq Museum after the American invasion. This lecture will discuss the damage sustained by the museum and the antiquities. War and civil unrest often lead to the looting of sites and museums. The looted material more often than not ends up on the antiquities market. The second case discussed involves some Byzantine mosaics that were looted from a church in northern Cyprus after the invasion of Turkey in 1974 and later occupation. The fate of these mosaics is discussed and illustrates the damage that can befall antiquities in the inexperienced hands of the antiquities market.

41:A Same-Sex Relationships & Transgender In Ancient Sacred Literature
 
Presenter(s): Eric Thompson
 
Composers of Sacred Scripture in antiquity, from the Hebrew Bible and Christian Scriptures to Greek Hymns to the Gods and Goddess, and Latin retelling of Greek myths, express an awareness of, ambivalence toward, and sometimes even cautious celebration of same-sex love, as well as challenges to the simplistic gender dyad of male and female. SRJC religious studies professor and biblical scholar Eric Thompson will highlight and expound upon several examples of such LGBTQ phenomena in ancient literature, all considered sacred by the cultures that produced them.

42:A Dia de los Muertos Presentation and Community Gathering
 
Presenter(s): Adrian Mendoza and Amanda Morrison
 
Faculty are encouraged to join students and staff in celebrating El Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) on Nov. 2 in Our House, Petaluma Campus' Intercultural Center. This event is an opportunity to honor our ancestors and loved ones who have passed while building community and celebrating life. El Dia de los Muertos derives from a Mesoamerican worldview that acknowledges death as a natural part of the lifecycle as well as our shared humanity. In addition to sipping hot chocolate and breaking bread together (in the form of traditional pan dulce), this event features several activities, including traditional crafting (papel picado paper-flower making and calavera sugar-skull decorating) and a photography presentation by SRJC freelance photographer Adrian Mendoza, who will share his fascinating photo series capturing a Dia de los Muertos event in the San Francisco Mission District some years back in which two different factions -- members of the neighborhood's longstanding Latino community and a contingent the gentrifying and predominately white bohemian class -- met at a social and physical crossroads during the annual holiday procession. This event offers an opportunity to experience a tradition that is simultaneously ancient and eminently relevant in contemporary urban contexts.

40:A "Hip-Hop Beyond Beats and Rhymes" Screening and Filmmaker Talk by Byron Hurt
 
Presenter(s): Byron Hurt
 
Following a screening of his critically acclaimed documentary "Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes," which explores the intersections of masculinity, sexuality, misogyny, and race, Award-winning filmmaker Byron Hurt will talk about what's changed and what's stayed the same in our culture since his documentary aired in 2007 on PBS stations all over the nation. Hurt, a former star college quarterback, longtime hip-hop fan, and gender-violence prevention educator, conceived the documentary as a "loving critique" of a number of disturbing trends in the world of rap music. He pays tribute to hip-hop while challenging the rap music industry to take responsibility for glamorizing destructive, deeply conservative stereotypes of manhood. This program addresses issues related to the experience of SRJC's male students, particularly young men of color, who disproportionately experience barriers to course completion and educational attainment. This program, supported by a grant from the Student Equity program, seeks to unpack some of those related issues.
