Endnote Workshop–Managing Bibliographical Information

Ana Lucic, a librarian at the Richardon Library, is going to train graduate students in how to use a program called Endnote, which is a very good way to manage and organize one’s bibliographical data. Students can bring their own laptops and the library will install the program on their laptops, or they can use laptops provided by the library for training purposes.

Richardson Library Rm. 109,

Friday, May 3rd, 2-3:30

In Conversation with Great Minds: Akram Khan

AkramKhan.pngThe DePaul Humanities Center is proud to welcome Akram Khan, in person, on Monday, February 25, 2019.  This free, public event is a rare opportunity to meet one of the most innovative, creative, and acclaimed dancer-choreographers in the world.  The evening begins at 7:00 p.m. with a screening of “The Six Seasons,” a documentary by Gilles Delmas chronicling the creation of Khan’s groundbreaking “DESH,” followed at 8:00 p.m. by a live, on-stage conversation between Mr. Khan and DHC director H. Peter Steeves.

Just a few days later, The Harris Theater premieres its U.S.-exclusive presentation of English National Ballet performing Mr. Khan’s first full-length choreographed ballet—a reimagining of the 1841 classic Giselle that, in Mr. Khan’s hands, now updates the setting, reimagines the stakes, and unabashedly takes on the issues of sex, gender, race, and class by, in part, casting Giselle as a refugee.  The choreography itself is, in fact, a mindful fusion of classical western ballet and Indian dance.  Trained in the classical South Asian dance, Kathak, as well as contemporary dance, Mr. Khan is generally celebrated for producing work that imaginatively erases traditional boundaries, thoughtfully incorporates unexpected collaborations, effortlessly fuses seemingly disparate traditions, and ingeniously pushes against the norms and expectations of dance and society in order to fashion something that is so inventively meaningful that it changes how we view ourselves as well as our expectations of dance.  Giselle is sure to be an excellent example of this.  And Mr. Khan’s appearance at the DePaul Humanities Center will allow our community to think together about these issues.

This program is presented in partnership with The Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for Music and Dance.  The Harris Theatre has generously offered a 20% discount to DePaul students, faculty, and staff to attend one of the four performances of Giselle.
