Research on Tap - From Renaissance to Enlightenment
Research on Tap - From Renaissance to Enlightenment

The Early Modern Period, roughly the three centuries from 1500 to 1800 CE, witnessed astonishing changes and developments in philosophy, religion, and all the arts. Boston University is fortunate in having a lively group of faculty researchers pursuing projects arising from this period. In this session, we’ll hear brief accounts of new work on topics including the sense of touch, old age, humanistic prose, instrumental music, women’s poems on war, and the persistence of the Enlightenment in modern thought.

An Overview of the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E)

The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) advances high-potential, high-impact energy technologies that are too early for private-sector investment and have the potential to radically improve U.S. economic prosperity, national security, and environmental well-being. The agency funds technology-focused, applied research and development aimed at creating real-world solutions to important problems in energy creation, distribution, and use.

Research on Tap - BU Research on a Sustainable Energy Future

Hosted by Peter Fox-Penner, Professor of the Practice, Questrom School of Business

As demonstrated by the recent Paris Climate Conference, global energy systems face a massive challenge shifting away from unsustainable carbon-emitting fuels to sustainable sources, while serving the energy and development needs of a planet whose population will reach ten billion before the end of the century. This challenge calls for contributions from disciplines that span the full range of BU’s capabilities in research and policy analysis. In this event, faculty members engaged in a wide range of research related to sustainable energy systems and policies discuss their current and future work.

Tom Dustin Headline's Ray's New Garden
TOM DUSTIN | JIM WHITMAN | ALVIN DAVID CHECK OUT MENU AHEAD OF TIME! http://newgardenrestaurant.com/ TOM DUSTIN BIO If you're reading this, you probably are considering going to a comedy show featuring a guy you've never heard of: me. Well, I'm Tom. I'm from Boston and I do stand-up comedy for a living. I've won a few competitions including a big one in Canada which was televised in 2010 on "The Comedy Network" (Canadian Comedy Central) and paid me $25,000 that I quickly squandered. I'll always love you, Canada. Comedy Central in the U.S. picked me for the "Up Next" certified club talent search in 2013, but has yet to put me on their network. What gives? I love you guys, but come on. My parents are gonna die before they get to see me do standup on American television and I'm gonna be sad about it. You have the power to prevent that. I'll be waiting by the phone, expecting your call. Anyway, I've been a part of the Boston Comedy Festival for the past 10 years, and perform at all the clubs in Boston (except one; ask me, I'll tell you the story). I spend about 30 weeks per year on the road, working at comedy clubs across the country (all over New England, alot of the midwest and the eastern seaboard). In winter, I book all my gigs in Florida and the Bahamas because I despise shivering and shoveling. I love working at comedy clubs, and I'm really good at it, which is probably why they all keep asking me back every year. By the way, thanks for that, comedy bookers. I love you too. Unfortunately, I'm lazy and I suck at marketing myself through social media and all that jazz, so I've never really built a big fanbase, (hence your never having heard of me). I sometimes feel like I'm just a little late to the party, too old, and not cool enough to be there; As is apparrent by my use of the phrase "all that jazz". But I'm working on it. Do you want to be my manager? I've also done some commercials, video shorts, webseries, podasts, radio and tv apearances; not all of which I am proud, but most weren't bad. I'm the founder & commisioner of the Boston Comedy Softball League which is awesome. 5 comedy clubs sponsor 60 comedians playing softball at night on the Charles river in Boston; it's as good as it gets. None of that really says anything about how funny I am on stage, but you might gather that I'm generally liked and respected by my peers, and you'd be right. If you come to my show, you can expect it to be a little dirty with a sprinkle of mean jokes & sexy stories, a little truth and a couple of lies. I'll make some intelligent arguments, some mindless ramblings and hopefully, by the end, you'll have laughed a bunch and got to know me better. Then we can be friends. And that'll be the moment when you'll feel good about yourself for taking a shot on the comedy show featuring the guy you've never heard of. Come see me. I promise to be wicked funny. You probably got the tickets for free anyway. Reserved Table Seating - $20.00

During this session, ABA will report on the Civic Economics study "Amazon and Empty Storefronts: The Fiscal and Land Use Impact of Online Retail," and provide important resources and data to empower everyone connected with independent bookselling to communicate the “new” localism message to colleagues, customers, community members, elected officials, and the media.  ABA Spring Forum ABA executives will lead an open forum and discuss industry issues. Attendees help guide the agenda of the forum, so please come with questions and comments.

Collage Workshop with Artist John Williams
Want to learn how to collage? Our guest artist, Award-winning artist John M. Williams, will show you. In this 3 hour workshop, he will present his work, show an artwork-in-progress, and guide you in creating your collage. As an autistic adult, John sees his work as a metaphor for his daily life. “The world is for me a chaotic place. Thoughts and images swirl around endlessly in my head, making it hard to stay calm and focused. Art helps me live with autism by channeling my energy into creating new visions. I make order out of chaos by organizing many disparate elements into a unified and coherent image. I spend significant time researching my subjects to learn about them and their historical surroundings. By marrying my artistic vision with my passion for history, I seek to present a new perspective on history.” John’s work has been exhibited at the Outsider Art Fair in New York, the Outsider Folk Art Gallery in Pennsylvania, the SOFA show in Chicago and numerous locations in New England. Also his work has been featured in articles and books, including a cover story for The Folk Art Messenger, feature article in the Boston Globe and Drawing Autism by Jill Mullin, soon to be reissued in paperback. Collage is the cutting and assembling different forms from magazines, newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper, thus creating a new whole.  The theme of the workshop will be 'Flowers'. All materials provided. Light refreshments during a 30 minute break. FREE Brio Integrated Theatre 'Arts For All' Guest Artist Workshop For people of all ages and abilities.
