6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE: THE MUSE AT THE BIRTH OF THE UNIVERSE
Roald Hoffman, Dave Soldier, hosts

Ágnes Mócsy, physicist
Entertaining Science: THE MUSE AT THE BIRTH OF THE UNIVERSE image

What can pulverizing gold nuclei teach us about the birth of our universe? Actually, quite a lot. At the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Lab, NY, and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva, heavy atomic nuclei, like gold, can be smashed together with such extreme violence, that they melt into a cosmic soup that hasn't existed since the universe was a microsecond old. These tiny specs of primordial soup are the hottest things ever made by humans, the most perfect liquids known in nature and when they cool they create the heaviest antimatter nuclei ever observed. Hottest, most perfect, heaviest ... and don’t you touch them.

Ágnes Mócsy is a theoretical physicist who uses film, art, design and fashion to take her audience beyond the superlatives in science. She will discuss the ins and outs of this epic endeavor to recreate the earliest moments of our universe in “little bangs”, and how it provides her and also her students, her collaborators, and her colleagues in the fine arts, film, design and fashion a muse for their creations. Her latest art project is a documentary film that looks behind the science scene, probing the relationships that develop as scientists open a new field. Come hear The Sound of the Little Bangs, let Glamorous Gluons carry you to a mini fashion runway, followed by a Smashing Matters screening.

Ágnes Mócsy is a visiting Associate Professor at Yale University, and on the faculty in Pratt Institute’s Math and Science Department.

8:30PM  JANE IRA BLOOM EARLY AMERICANS
Jane Ira Bloom, soprano sax;  Mark Helias, bass;  Bobby Previte, drums
JANE IRA BLOOM Early Americans image

You never know what American original soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom is going to do next. After the success of her 2014 all-ballads release “Sixteen Sunsets” Bloom shifts into another gear showcasing the kinetic energy of her acclaimed trio playing with the musicians that she knows best with Early Americans. Her sound is like no other on the straight horn and she lets it fly on every song. She’s joined by long-time bandmates Mark Helias on bass & drummer Bobby Previte and with over fifty years of shared musical history together the album is sure to be a winner. Bloom’s collaboration with Helias dates back to the mid 70’s in New Haven CT and her unique chemistry with Previte has been ongoing since 2000. “Playing in threes” has always held a special fascination for jazz artists - it offers the possibility that something can be slightly off balance and that’s just what fires the imagination of players like Bloom, Helias, & Previte. With Early Americans Jane Ira Bloom stands in the vanguard of her generation carving out new territory in the heart of the jazz tradition.

"John Hart is one of the best straight-ahead jazz artists operating today and the album is a definite pleasure from start to finish. The trio is in great form!” - gapplegateguitarblog.com

6:00PM  PHILOSOPHY SERIES: "RELIGION IN DEMOCRATIC POLITICS"
Joseph Biehl, curator

Robert B.Talisse
Philosophy Series:

What role should religious conviction play in democratic policy-making? Features of modern democratic societies intersect to render this question both essential and problematic. Government policy in a democracy is supposed to reflect the will of the citizens, and in those societies citizens are free to practice any religion that they choose. So why shouldn't democratic laws be based on, say, the moral teachings of the Bible, if the majority of the citizens desire it? Well, modern citizens often disagree about religion, both in terms of its truth and its relevance. Does this fact of religious disagreement mean that each citizen should avoid voting on the basis of their own religious conviction, or would that make modern democracy objectionably secular, inconsistent with the religious freedom a democratic society is supposed to secure? In this talk, Robert Talisse explores these questions and defends the view that, indeed, religious citizens have a moral duty to avoid voting on the basis of their religious conviction, but that this constraint is not inconsistent with freedom of religion.
