Geek Speak: Amy Fuqua - “How to Read (and love!) Poetry”

Geek Speak: Amy Fuqua - “How to Read (and love!) Poetry”

BHSU Communications 0 4
Where: Jonas 110 
When: 4:00PM
Description: Anyone can read and love a good poem. Poetry doesn’t require special training or secret decoder ring. Ezra Pound’s “In a Station of the Metro” is just two lines written in contemporary English. William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 130 is a highly formal poem written more than four hundred years ago. Yet, both of them deliver delight to anyone who can read sentences in English. We will read and discuss the delights of a handful of poems written in English and then—for those who wish to add some music and geometry with their art--we will explore poetic form and meter. These elements just make the experience richer.

Geek Speak: Max Marc - "The breaking of the Enigma code, and a layperson's guide to Cryptography"

When: 4:00PM
Description: A key development that tilted odds in the Allies' favor during World War 2 occurred when Allied cryptographers (among them Alan Turing, who was also chemically castrated by his government for being homosexual), deciphered the Enigma code that encrypted German wireless communications. Some intriguing details related to that process were recently made public, and this talk will discuss some of them. Cryptography is all the rage now (e.g., see Bitcoin and Blockchain). This talk will move on to a broader discussion of the basics of cryptography: what it is, how it works, how it facilitates communication and payment. An overarching goal with this talk is to present everything in simplest available terms, to address the layperson's concerns and understanding.
