Women’s History Month Art Exhibit
Library

Photographer Angelica Ekeke is the Stories Coordinator at the Museum of the African Diaspora in downtown San Francisco, where she produces short films that chronicle the lives of people of African descent in the Bay Area.  In her timely photo series “Who we are: the will to adorn,” subjects adorn themselves with pieces of clothing and jewelry that have a significance to their identity. In a time where racial division is on the rise and anti-immigration rhetoric is prevalent, it is a joining of women who have “the will”, the deliberate intention, to celebrate the beauty of who they are. The combination of photojournalistic photographs and unconventional portraiture place subjects in their own home or landscapes that resemble their native land. With this, she is inviting viewers to look, listen, and think about the significance of adornment, the value of culture, and the will that it takes to be who we are, truly and fearlessly in America.

Lecture Series I: International Women’s Day
Lecture presented by professor Dolores Davison
President's Conference Room (Room 1901)

International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8 around the world, but due to its origins in the labor movement and its association with the radical political ideologies of the 1910’s and 1920’s, it has never gained popularity at the same level in the United States as exists around the world. The history of International Women's Day, as well as the events which followed its origin, are a fascinating study of feminism and political ideologies. Professor Dolores Davison will discuss the origins of these events and its expansion around the world, including the creation of the annual National Women's History Month in the United States. Complimentary refreshments.

Is Anyone Out There Among the Stars?
Smithwick Theatre (Room 1001)

Join Dr. Dan Werthimer of UC Berkeley for Is Anyone Out There Among the Stars: The Hundred-Million Dollar Breakthrough Listen Project on Wednesday, March 15 at 7 p.m. in the Smithwick Theatre at Foothill College. Part of the 17th annual Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series, this illustrated, non-technical talk is free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-served. Arrive early to locate parking.

What is the possibility of other intelligent life in the universe? Can we detect radio, infrared or light signals from alien civilizations? Current and future projects searching for such signals, including the new $100 million Breakthrough Prize Foundation Listen project, may provide an answer. Dan Werthimer will describe the plans for future searches and show how new technologies are revolutionizing the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence (SETI). He will also describe the SETI@home project, which analyzes data from the world's largest radio telescope using desktop computers and cell phones from millions of volunteers, forming one of Earth's most powerful supercomputers.   

Werthimer is the chief scientist at the Berkeley SETI Research Center, overseeing SETI@home, the $100 million Breakthrough Listen initiative, and several other SETI programs. He also directs the Center for Astronomy Signal Processing and Electronics Research (CASPER) and is associate director of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC).  He has been associate professor in the engineering and physics departments of San Francisco State University and a visiting professor at Beijing Normal University, the University of St. Charles in Marseille, and Eotvos University in Budapest. He has taught at universities in Peru, Egypt, Ghana, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Uganda and Kenya. Few people know that he was in the “homebrew computer club” with Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

The free lecture series is sponsored by the Foothill College Astronomy Program, NASA Ames Research Center, SETI Institute and Astronomical Society of the Pacific. Past lectures from the series are available at astrosociety.org/education/silicon-valley-astronomy-lectures and on YouTube.

Parking lots 1, 7 and 8 provide access to the theatre. Visitors must purchase a parking permit for $3 from dispensers in any student parking lot. Dispensers accept credit/debit cards and $1 bills. Foothill College is located off I-280 on El Monte Road in Los Altos Hills. For more information, visit foothill.edu or call 650.949.7888.

“As an instructor, it’s critical for me to help my students imbue their work with proper technique, as well as with passion and compassion.

I’m proud that our dancers continually challenge themselves creatively and physically. They truly have no fear when it comes to creativity.”

To meet dancers’ evolving needs, Foothill offers a variety of dance courses each 12-week quarter. Each emphasizes a specific dance technique, including ballet, modern, jazz, world, contemporary and hip-hop. Additional dance courses give students the unique opportunity to develop original choreography and produce small- and large-scale performances.
