Voice Faculty Recital... The Department of Music at Gustavus Adolphus College will present a recital by members of the department's voice faculty on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 1:30 p.m. in Jussi Bjorling Recital Hall. Seven members of the department—Michael Jorgensen, Patricia Snapp, Timothy O'Brien, Christina Smith, Nick Wayne, Rebecca McConnaughey, and Erin Damburger—will join with pianists Yumiko Oshima-Ryan, Esther Wang, and Bonnie Jorgensen in this performance. It opens with a variety of works from the 19th century by Johannes Brahms, Vincenzo Bellini and Reynaldo Hahn as well as 20th-century works by Ricky Gordon, Ennio Morricone, and Donald Swann, highlighted by solos and duets, and concludes with the seven vocalists joining to perform Leonard Bernstein's "Make Our Garden Grow" from Candide.

Gustavus 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 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... 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 new book, Erased, Vanished Traces of Jewish Galicia in Present Day Ukraine. What began as a deeply personal chronicle of the Holocaust in his mother's hometown of Buchach—in former Eastern Galicia—carried Bartov 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. The lecture is open to the public without charge.

Lecture on AIDS Crisis in Africa... Marycelina Msuya, dean of the faculty of nursing at Tumaini University in Tanzania, will present "HIV/AIDS and the Children of Tanzania" on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Olin 103. Msuya, who received her master of public health degree from Karolinska Institute, Sweden, has also studied in England and Finland and is currently pursuing a doctorate. She is interested in future collaboration between her university in Tanzania and the colleges with whom she connects during her visit here. Her lecture is open to the public without charge.

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 Chapel on Tuesday and visits to several classes. In 1984, Utne founded Utne Reader magazine, which has garnered several national awards. Currently, he 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.

Community Invited to Web Conference on Sustainable Dining... A web conference titled "Understanding Sustainable Dining Options" will be broadcast on Wednesday, Nov. 14, in the St. Peter Room of the Jackson Campus Center.
