IMG_2035

sdp01Cynthia Connolly is a photographer, curator, and co-author/publisher/distributor of the book Banned in DC. She’s coming to Santa Cruz to share stories and show images of the beginning of the now legendary hardcore punk scene in Washington DC.

Originally published in 1988,  “Banned in DC”  is one of the first books on punk of its kind. It illustrates and documents DC in the late 70s to mid 80s with hundreds of photos, flyers, stories about the bands, the venues, and the people who populated the shows. This particular scene embodied a spirit of DIY that has come to be synonymous with punk, and it has continued to be an influence on many regional punk scenes around the world.

The event, Talk and Book Signing: Banned in DC with Cynthia Connolly is Thursday, Aug 3, 2017, at the Santa Cruz MAH 705 Front Street, Santa Cruz, CA. Enjoy a talk from Cynthia Connolly from 6:30-7:15 pm, and book signing and buttonmaking from 7:15-8:00 pm.

What is Lost When a Species Goes Extinct?

IMG_0163

Within the question, “what is lost when a species goes extinct?”, is embedded another question, “how do we talk about it?” To investigate these questions and more, Irena Polic, Managing Director of the Institute for Humanities Research, brought Claudio Campagna, Adjunct Professor in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and Daniel Guevara, Chair and Associate Professor, Philosophy Department, all at UCSC, onto KZSC‘S Artists on Art Radio Program, April 4, 2017.

We began the discussion about the new research group, The Language of Conservation, and their inaugural event, What is Lost When A Species Goes Extinct? A Colloquium on the Unspeakable Value of Life, that happened, April 14, in Humanities 1. It was a conversation between a philosopher and three scientists about the impact of language—how particular words and concepts impact the public’s thinking about topics such as “sustainability,” “conservation,” and “extinction.”

Here’s an excerpt of our interview with Claudio Campagna talking about his journey as an animal behaviorist to researching the philosophy of the environmental movement and starting the new IHR research group with Daniel Guevara on language and conservation.
