Tuesday in the UNM Area... and Santa Fe

I've already mentioned James Oliverio's public talk Tuesday afternoon at ARTS Lab (4-5 PM), but there are a few other interesting events not too far away.

HSC Frankenstein Exhibit Runs Through End of May
Exhibit's final lecture 5-6PM April 29

Through the end of May, the UNM Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center is hosting a traveling exhibition called “Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature." The exhibition, originally developed by the National Library of Medicine®, has been on display since March 10 in the Domenici Center for Health Sciences Education on the Health Sciences Center campus. Exhibit hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

A lecture series, held as part of the exhibit during the month of April, concludes Tuesday, April 29 with a lecture titled 'Ethics of Neurosystems Engineering' by researchers Rex E. Jung, UNM Department of Neurology; John Phillips, Mind Research Network and Gerry Yonas, Sandia National Laboratories and director of neurosystems engineering, Mind Research Network. It will be held in the Domenici Center rm. 2112 from 5 to 6 p.m.

Local curator of the exhibit, Laura Hall, notes that since its appearance in 1818, the Frankenstein story has been a symbol for public fears about new scientific techniques and research, which often challenge beliefs about what is "natural" and what it means to be human. The exhibition offers a fresh look at what the story can contribute to discussions of social responsibility and ethical scientific research.

Established in 1963, the Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center is the only comprehensive health sciences library in New Mexico. It supports the information needs of faculty, students, staff and programs of the HSC and provides health-related information services to community health professionals and the citizens of New Mexico.

For more information, please call 272-6518 or visit: Frankenstein Exhibit.

Also at the Domenici Center on May 1st will be 'MEDICINE AS ART AND SCIENCE,' a lecture by Dr. David Bennahum, UNM Professor Emeritus of Medicine, Family & Community Medicine and Law, and resident scholar at the Institute for Ethics at the UNM Health Sciences Center. It will be held in the Domenici Center Auditorium from 7 to 8:30 p.m, with a reception after. The event is Co-sponsored by the Combined BA/MD Degree Program and the Robert Wood Johnson Center for Health Policy.

It's also the season for final performances and showcases from various groups. Tomorrow (Tuesday) from 6-10PM our Theatre 426 Performance Art Class will have its Final Showcase at Out Ch'yonda (929 4th Street, SW) in Barelas.
