cosponsered events

The Humanities Institute administers a cosponsored events program that allows faculty across the division

to apply for funding to support a wide array of events, such as conferences, symposia, workshops, and guest lectures that enhance research and serve faculty and graduate students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences at UC Davis. In 2011-2012, the Institute supplemented the support it received from the Deans of Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies and Social Sciences to support 40 events across the campus, in- cluding a social justice teach-in featuring Angela Davis; talks on gender equity in the public university; lectures on early modern art history; and seminars on memory and revolution in Latin America.

arts facUlty showcase

The UC Davis Arts Initiative, a partnership with the Humanities Institute and the six campus arts depart-

ments, inaugurated an arts faculty lecture series in 2011-2012 that featured recently hired faculty in Music, Theatre & Dance, and Art Studio. Laurie San Martin, associate professor of music and Arts Initiative faculty assistant, spearheaded the lecture series as a way for the campus community to get a peek into the research, thought, and creative processes of UC Davis’s arts fac- ulty. Bella Merlin of the Theatre & Dance Department kicked off the series with her latest practical investiga- tions in a talk titled “Practice as Research: Playing Up and Acting Out.” Swedish composer Mika Pelo in the Music Department discussed his approach to musical composition as “controlled dreaming,” and photogra- pher Youngsuk Suh of Art Studio shared the inspira- tion for his new project “Let Burn: Landscape in the age of natural disasters,” a photo and video series on controlled fires. “The initiative hoped to shed light on some of the essential inner workings of our arts depart- ments: Theater & Dance, Music, Art, Creative Writing, Cinema and Technocultural Studies, and Design,” said San Martin.
