'Alien Invaders from the Planet Earth'... Pamela Kittelson (biology) presents the next Continuing Education event at the College on Thursday, Nov. 8, beginning at 7 p.m. in the Melva Lind Interpretive Center. Her topic is invasive plant species, which cause at least $40 billion a year in economic losses. Invasive exotic species can terrorize the plant world by forming dense monocultures, reducing the abundance of native species and negatively altering soil fertility, plant-animal interactions and fire regimes. Kittelson will differentiate invasive species from benign exotic species and focus on Minnesota invasive species—how they got here and why they do so well. She will discuss the impact that invasive species have on the local environment, how we might limit the damage, and why gardeners and sportsmen are the front line in preventing and limiting new invasions. Program cost is $8 for the public (pre-register at the St. Peter Community and Family Education Office in the Community Center) and free for Gustavus faculty, staff, and students (pre-register by e-mail:ehoefs@gustavus.edu).

Shop Talk... Patricia Costello (psychology) will present the next Faculty Shop Talk of the 2007-08 academic year. Her talk, titled "Perception of Age in Human Faces," will be presented on Friday, Nov. 9, at 4:30 p.m. in the Melva Lind Interpretive Center. Feel free to arrive any time after 4:15 p.m. The abstract for this and future talks may be viewed at http://gustavus.edu/events/shoptalks/.

Campus Revival... Bishop Wayne R. Felton, senior pastor of the Holy Christian Church-Cathedral, St. Paul, Minn., will lead a traditional revival is Christ Chapel on Friday, Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m. Come and see the power of the Word of God move in demonstration of healing and the prophetic.

Eighth Annual 'Our Story' Conference Addresses Debt Forgiveness... "Debt Forgiveness for Underdeveloped Nations" is the theme of this year's student-run "Our Story" Conference, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 10. Registration begins at 11 a.m. in front of the Evelyn Young Dining Room. Guest speaker is John Jal Wang, former chairman of the Sudan Relief and Rehabilitation Association in London and Paris who is being drafted to run for president of South Sudan in the country's 2011 elections. The conference will also feature several insightful workshops throughout the afternoon. The conference is jointly sponsored by the Pan Afrikan Student Organization (PASO) and CAB. All are encouraged to attend.

More Continuing Education... "Art, Music and Literature from World War I: A Sampling" is the theme of a Continuing Education presentation by Ron Green (education, emeritus) on Monday, Nov. 12, beginning at 7 p.m. in the Three Crowns Room, Jackson Student Center (note the site, a departure from the usual Interpretive Center location). World War I, also known as the "The Great War" and as "The War To End All Wars," generated more art, music, poetry, and other literature than all the other wars in history combined. This phenomena can be partially explained by both the length and the savagery of the conflict and also by the large number of nations involved in the conflict and the amazingly large numbers of men and a few women who were motivated to create original works as they watched their comrades die in the savagery of 50 months of battle. This presentation will focus on just a few of the more memorable artists, composers, poets, and authors whose works have survived over the decades since the war ended. Cost is $8 for the public (pre-register at the St. Peter Community and Family Education Office) and free for current Gustavus faculty, staff, and students (pre-register by e-mail: ehoefs@gustavus.edu).

Holocaust Lecture Chronicles Ukranian Atrocities... On Monday, Nov. 12, at 7:30 p.m. in Alumni Hall, the Peace Studies program will sponsor a lecture on the Holocaust by Professor Omer Bartov, John P. Birkelund Distinguished Professor of European History at Brown University. Professor Bartov will give an illustrated lecture on his forthcoming book, Erased, Vanished Traces of Jewish Galicia in Present Day Ukraine. Bartov uncovers the rapidly disappearing vestiges of the Jews of western Ukraine, who were rounded up and murdered by the Nazis during World War II with help from the local populace. What begins as a deeply personal chronicle of the Holocaust in his mother's hometown of Buchach—in former Eastern Galicia—carries him on a journey across the region and back through history. This poignant travelogue reveals the complete erasure of the Jews and their removal from public memory, a blatant act of forgetting done in the service of a fiercely aggressive Ukrainian nationalism.

Conversation with Utne Reader Founder... Social entrepreneur, publisher, and educator Eric Utne will visit Gustavus Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 13 and 14, for a series of conversations around the intersections of liberal arts learning, entrepreneurship, vocation, writing and the media, social responsibility, and the environment. The campus community is invited to join Utne for dinner and conversation at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 13, in the Presidents Dining Room, to be following by a public address, "Entrepreneurship and Social Responsibility: Responding to the Call of the Environmental Crisis," at 7 p.m. in the Heritage Banquet Room of the Jackson Campus Center. (RSVP for the dinner to Amy in the CVR, x7159 or e-mail apehrson, by Friday, Nov. 9.) Utne's visit will also include the homily in Daily Chapel on Tuesday and visits to several classes. In 1984, Utne founded Utne Reader magazine, which has garnered several national awards and of which he was chair for many years. He has also published Cosmo Doogood's Urban Almanac: Celebrating Nature & Her Rhythms in the City, which he describes as a "21st century version of Poor Richard's Almanac." He is a co-founder of the Headwaters Fund and the Social Venture Network, and serves on the executive committee of the Nobel Peace Prize Forum. Currently, Utne is in the midst of launching two new initiatives: The Earth Corps for Global Service, a kind of "Peace Corps for the whole Earth"; and Earth Councils, a neighborhood-based response to the global environmental crisis that brings elders together with youth to create initiatives for the common good.
