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

Richard III  
  Marian Theatre, Allan Hancock College Campus, Santa Maria CA

Shakespeare’s stunning portrait of Machiavellian genius spins a spider-like folktale web, full of rollercoaster lurches and plunges, about the murderous quest for absolute power and the moral demise and military downfall of England’s notorious Richard III. At the end of the bloody Wars of the Roses between the rival Houses of Lancaster and York, the victorious Yorkists look forward to a period of peace under the newly-crowned Edward IV. But Edward's younger brother, Richard, Duke of Gloucester, has other ideas. Deformed and jealous, Shakespeare’s Richard is a villain who plans to get the throne for himself through seduction, betrayal, murder or any means necessary.

TALK: Networks and Social Capital in Japan’s 3/11 disasters  
  UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB SSMS 2135, Santa Barbara CA
TALK: Networks and Social Capital in Japan’s 3/11 disasters Daniel Aldrich (Political Science, Northeastern University) Wednesday, May 04, 2016 /4:00 SSMS 2135 The 11 March 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, and the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultural Studies.

Chile - North to South  
  Paul Mills  
  Santa Barbara County Horticultural Society, Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Santa Barbara CA

Being stuck between the Atacama Desert in the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west, Andes to the east and Antarctica to the south, the flora of Chile has developed in isolation giving rise to many endemic (found nowhere else) plants. Paul Mills, our 2014 Bouquet of the Year Awardee and Assistant Curator at Madame Ganna Walska Lotusland, will offer a presentation on Chile that will take us to a number of different habitats and vegetation types – from north to south and west to east. In the north you find the hyper-arid Atacama Desert with some areas having never received measurable rainfall. Plants are relegated to the fog belt where they receive moisture in the form of condensation and occasional rain in conjunction with El Nino events. Central Chile enjoys a Mediterranean climate, just like central California, with warm, dry summers and wet, cool winters. The major population centers of Chile are located in the central part of the country and the landscape has been drastically altered by agriculture and by the massive plantations of pine and eucalyptus that are mostly used for pulp for foreign paper industries. There are isolated patches of native vegetation and a few national parks where the flora of the region can be appreciated. In the southern reaches of Chile there is increased rainfall and towering temperate rain forests – some of the richest on the planet. With its dramatic geography, amazing plants, stable government, strong economy, good infrastructure and warm people, Chile is an interesting and easy travel destination for intrepid plant seekers.
