Everything Out of Nothing? – The Story of the Universe Seen with Modern Instrumentation

imagesTuesday August 12, 2014
7:00 PM until 8:15 PM
This program is an inquiry into the origins of the universe with UNH Prof. Eberhard Moebius. Möebius is a Professor in the Physics Department and the Space Science Center. His research is centered around the acceleration of particles in and their transport through space using state-of-the-art instruments on spacecraft. Most recently the research focuses on the interstellar gas outside the solar system and its interaction with the heliosphere that surrounds our solar system. Interstellar gas constitutes a sample of cosmic material that is distinct from the sun and its planets and thus provides clues on the evolution of matter and on the origin of stars, planets and us.

Austenmania!: The Appeal of the Regency Novelist in the Twenty-First Century

Tuesday June 24, 2014
7:00 PM until 8:15 PM


This¬†presentation surveys the ways in which Jane Austen has been commodified over the past fifteen years, filtering into national currency, video games, housewares, and jewelry. Stephanie Harzewski explores the ‘why’ behind the popularity of this Regency era novelist and how examining the fetishism of Austen approximately two hundred years after her death offers clues not only into reading choices, but also larger aspects of contemporary society.

Stephanie Harzewski is a lecturer with the Department of English at the University of New Hampshire where she teaches contemporary British and American literature, and, more generally, British literature since 1800, as well as female sexuality and popular culture. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.
