The George Washington University Presents 2015 Women’s History Month POWER Writing Women Back Into History Sunday, March1-Tuesday, March 31 #TURNUP4TAMPONS Drive 4pm MSSC, 2127 G Street, NW Take action and help us provide a vital product for the homeless which is typically left out, TAMPONS! This drive for tampons and sanitary products will benefit the transgender clients of Casa Ruby to support their feminine hygiene needs. Sponsored by the Women’s Leadership Program, Allied in Pride, the Black Women's Forum, Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., GW Hillel and the LGBT Resource Center. MULTICULTURAL STUDENT SERVICES CENTER Office of Diversity & Inclusion 2127 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20052 202-994-6772 | mssc@gwu.edu
The artists’ books from the Corcoran Art & Design Collection began as a resource for graduate students in the Art and the Book program, and have grown to become a diverse collection of unique examples of the book arts. A selection of the books, on loan from the Special Collections Research Center at GW's Gelman Library, are presented here, including a number of books made by Corcoran and GW students, faculty, and alumni. These and over 200 other artists’ books are available upon request from the Special Collection Research Center at Gelman Library. Email speccoll@gwu.edu to request materials. Second floor display cases, just outside the Brady Art Gallery. Accessible any time the MPA building is open.

Luminaries: Portraits from the GW Permanent Collection   ( 10:00 AM Feb 11 - 5:00 PM Apr 24 )
Memorable names and faces captured by artists in prints, paintings, and photographs selected from the GW Permanent Collection. The exhibition shows for the first time six screen prints by Andy Warhol, recently gifted to the collection by the Warhol Foundation, including images of Queen Elizabeth II, Mao Zedong and Sitting Bull. February 11, 2015 - April 24, 2015
Menagerie by definition is a strange or diverse collection of people or things. In this group show, each artist has created work in response to their reading of Roland Barthes’ Camera Lucida. This group exhibition explores a wide variety of expression stemming from the concept of memory, a key element in Barthes’ book which is a simultaneous inquiry into the nature and essence of photography and a eulogy to his mother. Though united in source and query, the ways in which each individual artist approaches memory is as varied as the act of recollection its self. Through introspection and physical manifestation, Menagerie is a look into the individual minds, personal pasts, and familial ties of the artists who present their memories as a collection in their ever-changing forms.

Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Presents: Finite-time Switching Dynamics of Contact Mechanical Systems: A Differential Variational Inequality (DVI) and Hybrid System Perspective Dr. Jinglai Shen Associate Professor Department of Mathematics & Statistics University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) Friday, March 6, 2015 11:00 am 800 22nd Street NW, SEH B1270 Washington, DC 20052 Hosted by: Dr. Taeyong Lee (tylee@gwu.edu) A wide range of contact mechanical systems subject to unilateral constraints or friction can be formulated as a differential variational inequality (DVI) or a differential complementarity system, which has received considerable attention in optimization and systems & control fields. Such dynamical systems demonstrate inherent nonsmooth, multimodal, and switching behaviors, and thus can be treated as switching hybrid dynamical systems. In this talk, we will first review recent developments in finite-time switching dynamics analysis of differential complementarity systems (or DVIs), which is critical to computation, numerical analysis, and control of contact mechanical systems. In particular, we will focus on the non-Zeno property (i.e. the property of having finitely many switchings in finite time) of both Lipschitz and non-Lipschitz complementarity systems. We will then present some new results on robust non-Zeno property of piecewise affine systems under system parameter and/or initial state perturbations, and discuss their implications in contact mechanics. Dr. Jinglai Shen received the B.S.E. and M.S.E. degrees in automatic control from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China, in 1994 and 1997, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 2002. Currently, he is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). Before joining UMBC, he was a Postdoctoral Res...

Biostatistics and Epidemiology Consulting Service (BECS) Discussion Series Challenges of Using Electronic Medical Record Data for Statistical Analyses Sarah J. Ratcliffe, PhD University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine Electronic healthcare databases are seen by many as the "holy grail" of data; useful for inexpensive and fast answers to clinical questions. However, secondary use of data meant for clinical documentation, billing, or administrative purposes brings a host of challenges for analyses. In this talk, we look at examples of unexpected issues discovered in analyses with data drawn from single centers, plus the complexities of harmonizing data from multiple sites. The data problems discovered serve as a cautionary tale to statisticians asked to work with electronic health records, and the importance of being involved in clinical database decisions that invalidate use for future research. Date: Friday, March 6, 2014 Time: 12:00-1:00pm Place: Conference Room, 950 New Hampshire Avenue, NW, 5th Floor All are welcome and a light lunch will be provided. Students may use this for professional enhancement credit. RSVPs are not required for this talk. The BECS Discussion Series is a forum for informal talks on applied statistics topics in health research.

Poetry and prose inspired by visits to beautiful places, especially the mountains, constitute an important branch of Chinese literature. Jonathan Chaves recently published the first translation into a Western language of Huangshan lingyaolu , "Comprehending the Essentials of the Yellow Mountains," written by Wang Hongdu .--a painter, calligrapher, poet and prose writer--in 1696, during the "Golden Age" of the Yellow Mountains and the art and literature they inspired. In this talk, Professor Chaves will discuss his research, including his visit to the Yellow Mountains in the company of great landscape photographer, Wang Wusheng, and will show images of the Mountains. He will also read from the original text, and from his translations, of Wang Hongdu's work. Remarks will be from 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm and a book signing and reception will be from 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm. Please RSVP to attend this event. This event is sponsored by the Department of East Asian Languages and Literature, as well as the Sigur Center for Asian Studies.

Mulatu Astatke   8:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Presented by GW Lisner Tickets: $30 - $45 Mulatu Astatke, Ethiopian musician and arranger, is best known as the father of Ethio-jazz. Born in the western Ethiopian city of Jimma, Mulatu was musically trained in London, New York City, and Boston where he combined his jazz and Latin music interests with traditional Ethiopian music. Astatke led his band while playing vibraphone and conga drums—instruments that he introduced into Ethiopian popular music—as well as other percussion instruments, keyboards and organ. His albums focus primarily on instrumental music, and Astatke appears on all three known albums of instrumentals that were released during Ethiopia's Golden ’70s.
