California's Wild Edge: The Coast in Poetry, Prints and History  
  Wildling Museum, 1511-B Mission Drive, Solvang CA

The exhibition captures the beauty of the California coast from Mendocino, Point Reyes, and the San Francisco Bay down through Carmel, Big Sur, Santa Barbara, and Santa Monica. Woodcut artist Tom Killion’s prints combine exquisite color with dynamic composition to portray the coast’s ever-changing moods and diverse formations: storm tides crashing at Point Lobos, serene moonlit coves at Mendocino, fog encircling the Golden Gate Bridge. Deepening the experience are poetry and prose from Gary Snyder and other well-known California poets of the past and present. The exhibition is originated by the San Francisco Public Library and is based on a new Heyday book by the same title.   ($5.00

    READING AND CONVERSATION: Bending Toward the Sun: A Mother-Daughter Memoir  
  Leslie Gilbert-Lurie  
  UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB Humanities & Social Sciences Building, Room 6046, Santa Barbara CA
In honor of Holocaust Remembrance Week, Leslie Gilbert-Lurie will read from her 2009 memoir, written jointly with her mother Rita Lurie. Bending Toward the Sun tells the story of a unique family bond forged in the wake of brutal terror. Weaving together the voices of three generations of women, Gilbert-Lurie provides powerful evidence of the resilience of the human spirit, relevant to every culture in every corner of the world. Rita Lurie, like Anne Frank, spent years hiding from the Nazis; her long-hidden pain shaped both her daughter and granddaughter’s lives. Bringing together the stories of three generations of women, Bending Toward the Sun reveals how deeply the Holocaust lives in the hearts and minds of survivors and their descendants.

TALK: Networks and Social Capital in Japan’s 3/11 disasters  
  UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB SSMS 2135, Santa Barbara CA
The March 11, 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and associated tsunami and nuclear meltdowns took nearly 20,000 lives, created half a million refugees, and affected energy policies as far away as Germany, Switzerland, and Italy. In Japan, mortality rates in coastal communities in the Tohoku region were not constant; instead, they varied widely from town to town. During the recovery period, some towns have rebuilt damaged infrastructure, reopened schools, and repopulated downtowns. Others have not been at successful. What explains the variation in mortality during the tsunami and recovery after the disaster? Using data gathered from fieldwork, interviews, and surveys, this talk looks closely at the role of social capital and networks. While many of us envision disaster mitigation in terms of physical infrastructure, the findings instead point to the power of social infrastructure to reduce mortality and accelerate post disaster recovery. Sponsored by the IHC’s Reinventing Japan RFG, the East Asia Center, the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultural Studies, the Environmental Humanities Initiative, the UCSB Critical Issues in America series: Climate Futures, the Global Environmental Justice Project, the Department of Political Science, the Department of Environmental Studies, and the Department of Global Studies. • See more events sponsored by the IHC's Reinventing Japan RFG: http://www.ihc.ucsb.edu/tag/reinventing-japan-rfg/
