23rd Annual Cultural Studies Symposium with Lisa Cartwright and Steven Rubin

February 21, 2014 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
K-State Alumni Center, 17th Street and Anderson Avenue, Manhattan, KS, 66506, United States

Join us for a lecture by Lisa Cartwright (U of California, San Diego) and Steven Rubin (Penn State U) on “Infrastructures of Power: New Topographies of Wind in Kansas.”

Since 2009, Cartwright and Rubin have been engaged in the documentation and analysis of the everyday work experience and interaction between people, land, and technology in some of the farming and ranching communities throughout Kansas that have been impacted by wind industry development. Their talk shares the results of this multi-year visual and sensory ethnography. Their project engages in a tradition of studying landscape through photography, video, and interpretive multimodal art practice used to interpret changes in regional infrastructures. Major concerns include: How is wind understood as a source of power to be harvested like a crop? How is everyday local experience impacted by a new energy infrastructure on farmland that continues to be worked in conventional agricultural ways?

Their analysis shows how the double-cropping of wind and grain in Kansas is a practice in which boundaries and intersections are negotiated not only between the energy and agriculture industries, but also between wind-rich and wind-poor landowners, between farmers and ranchers who support and oppose wind development, and among ranch- or farmhands and wind technicians, who must learn how to share the same fields. Their talk includes attention to the historical place of landscape photography as a technology of power, the matter of wind as a uniquely invisible and newly monetized force, and the legacy of land use interpretation as a means of understanding the everyday life experience of people in a region as its industrial infrastructure changes in ways that profoundly alter the fabric of community.

Come and see the hilarious play HARVEY at Manhattan Arts Center. Tickets are on sale now. Directed by Kim Riley.

Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey – whom Elwood describes as a six-foot three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka resembling an anthropomorphic rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets. His social-climbing sister, Veta, increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing and decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare herself and her daughter Myrtle Mae further embarrassment.

After countless weeks of frigid weather, the sun finally returns just in time for Valentine’s Day. The roads & sidewalks will be clear, so it’s time to come out of hibernation and make your way down to Aggieville for some bluegrass and booze, courtesy of The Boondogglers and Dancing Ganesha!

Whether you love or hate the holiday, whether you have someone to celebrate it with or are dodging Cupid’s arrows, the Boondogglers will have a tune to fit your mood. There will also be special Valentine’s Day cocktails (to be announced shortly) , as well as the standard $1.50/pint house beer Friday night special.

You’ve been barricaded on the couch long enough. Give your Netflix a break and come out for live music. Your pets are probably ready for some alone time.
