    Black Holes

    "Black Holes"
    Black holes are the most extreme phenomena in the universe. They push the limits of our imagination and drive our formulations of the laws of nature to their breaking point. Vatche Sahakian, Harvey Mudd College associate professor of physics, discusses the theory of relativity -- both special and general -- which allows us to understand a cornucopia of puzzles associated with black holes.

    This public lecture on ideas at the forefront of modern theoretical physics is aimed at a general audience. We will talk about the philosophical underpinnings of modern physics; the fuzzy world as described by quantum mechanics; black holes and the skewing of space and time by motion and energy; the latest perspectives on cosmology and our universe, and the puzzles they lead us to; and finally we will touch upon new ideas from string theory and the frontiers of physics. Visual interactive simulations will be used in lieu of equations and mathematics. The target audience includes anyone with a high school education.

  • Exclusive Nationalisms: Global Migration and Immigration:
    Administrative Belongings: Race, Sexuality, and Capitalist Violence

    6:00 - 7:30 PM
    Humanities Auditorium
    Scripps College
    Claremont, 91711
    (909) 621-8237

    In this talk, Reddy will focus on the unprecedented expansion of the administrative and bio-political powers of the U.S. state since the nineteen-sixties. The administration of social difference became, he argues, a crucial feature of the multicultural state, creating new sources for its authority and use of violence. By conjoining the institutionalization of "anti-racist" civil rights (through the Civil Rights Act of 1964) with a seismic expansion of state administrative powers into domains such as housing, health, education and municipality for their "enforcement," administrative power became the secret fulcrum by which the multicultural welfare state gathered for itself new powers to control, dominate and internally differentiate populations of "fully" enfranchised citizens, creating new conditions for the power over life and death and the management of racial capitalist inequalities. Yet queer indigenous and queer of color activisms offer the keenest critique of this rights-based administrative order and its death-dealing powers, creating forms of relationality that are unimaginable within and antagonistic to the norms of the rights-based political state and the capitalist social relations it violently enforces.
