Best Bets: Events to Anticipate, Week of 2/22/16

 

What’s going on here on campus next week? Here are some events you might want to investigate and/or participate in.

We’ll begin, this time, with the end of the week: on Saturday, Feb. 27, join the Classics Department for a memorial in Upstairs Haggar from 3-5 p.m. to remember Associate Professor Karl Maurer, Ph.D., who passed away last May.

“We’re making the occasion quite informal and conceive of it as consisting of reminiscences by friends and former students, readings of his own translations -- for instance of the ‘Georgics,’ Jacob Balde and Carlos German Belli -- and of translations made by some of his students under his supervision,” said Chairman and Associate Professor of Classics David Sweet, Ph.D.

Members of Maurer’s family will be in attendance, as well as a former teacher, James O’Donnell, and many students. The plan is to collect the various reminiscences and readings from the memorial into a book to send to Maurer’s friends, teachers and former students who will be unable to attend.

The day before the memorial, on Friday, Feb. 26, Maurer’s friend and former colleague, Gwenda-lin Grewal, Ph.D. (formerly affiliate assistant professor of classics and philosophy at UD, now assistant professor of philosophy at Sarah Lawrence College) will give a lecture titled “Being and Essence -- and Accidents” at 4 p.m. in Gorman Faculty Lounge.

Earlier in the week, on Wednesday, Feb. 24, the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business will host the Cybersecurity Lecture Series in the Multipurpose Room (122) in SB Hall, where you can learn from renowned security experts and college of business faculty about new trends and hot issues in cybersecurity. There will be networking with food and beverages starting at 6 p.m., followed by a talk by guest speaker Rick Holland, vice president of strategy at the cybersecurity company Digital Shadows. A panel discussion by college of business professors will wrap up the evening.

Also, don’t forget: through April 22, UD’s Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is hosting “Marc Chagall: Intersecting Traditions.” Go by and see it when you have a chance!
