    Geek Speak: Dr. Miro Haček - "Yugoslavia: Heaven or Hell on Earth?"

    Black Hills State University’s first Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence, Dr. Miro Haček of the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), recalls the life of an average person in Yugoslavia – a very special kind of socialist country that existed from the end of the Second World War until 1990/91. The country was based on worker self-management, and politics of Cold War neutrality, with a unique leader, Josip Bronz Tito, who is still adored and missed but is also hated by many in former Yugoslavia.

    Time: 6pm
    Location: Jonas 101
    Description: Join us in the Center this Thursday for American Indian Studies for a talk with Supaman! Christian Parrish Takes the Gun, known professionally as Supaman is an Apsáalooke rapper and fancy dancer who was born in Seattle Washington and grew up in Crow Agency, Montana. The child of struggling alcoholics, he spent part of his childhood in foster care before being raised by his mother. He began DJing in the 90s after hearing a Litefoot song (with the two touring together in 1999), In the fourth grade, Christian began dancing at powwows.[3] While in elementary school he began to write poetry and later began to rap. He related to rap music because he felt he was going through the same issues that most artists were rapping about. Taking the name 'Supaman' at the spur of the moment in a DJ competition. Supaman began rapping in a more original style until he had a spiritual encounter that told him to live a better lifestyle and rap about more meaningful and inspirational topics. In the spiritual encounter he had, Supaman said his creator " let [him] know [he] was to do everything on [his] own."
    In 2003 he founded the Native American hip-hop group Rezawrecktion, whose first album (It's Time) won a Native American Music Award in 2005. Since then, he has released four solo albums and received coverage and plaudits for the song Why? (featuring Acosia Red Elk). In his hit track, Prayer Loop Song, Supaman utilizes various instruments including the drum and the ute all while beatboxing, rapping, and remixing different Native tracks; His reasoning for the song and video was an audition tape for America's Got Talent. Alongside rapping, he also tours schools, where he educates students about Native American history and culture. He performed live on MTV as part of a show featuring new artists. In 2013 his music and his fancy dancing skills were featured on a float for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. One thing Supaman is known for is performing his music while wearing his traditional fancy dance outfit. He started doing this by accident when he was forced to do his musical performance right after he had performed a fancy dance while at a show for a school. Supaman typically fuses spiritual concepts and ideas with his rap music. Supaman creates all of his albums by himself, doing everything from singing and writing the music to creating and designing the covers. Since releasing Gorilla in 2013 he has been featured on different songs and is set to release “Illuminatives” which features songs available from his viral videos.

  • Geek Speak: Tim Steckline - "Gates without Walls: An Anarchist’s Appeal for Open Borders"

    Geek Speak: Tim Steckline - "Gates without Walls: An Anarchist’s Appeal for Open Borders"

    Where: Jonas 110
    When: 4:00PM
    Description: A gate normally functions as a way in or out of a perimeter. But from St. Louis to San Francisco, and from El Paso to Edmonton people have constructed Gates without Walls. These gates stand freely, with no walls to direct converging traffic: these gates are symbolic of an Open Invitation. Free-standing gates can be easily circumvented, so their symbolism makes them less than functional. The American West has promoted gates without walls through much of its long tradition. The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is replicated in the Roosevelt Arch at the North Entrance to Yellowstone, and both are echoed by the Golden Gate.

    The counter impulse in our West is a desire to enclose, whether with forts or barb wire or survey lines or camp fences or reservation boundaries or national borders. These can become Walls without Gates, for they are designed to resist escapes. The West has long promised gates but it has erected walls. It may be time to live up to the ideals of the West, to the Gates of Open Invitation. This is an argument for open borders, something many are accused of proposing but few actually defend, and fewer defend without apology. Calls for the erection of walls without gates are anti-human, anti-organic, and anti-aesthetic. Life should move about freely.

    Geek Speak: Du-Lu Hsiao - "Freddie Mercury & Montserrat Caballé: The story behind Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games."

    Where: Jonas 110
    When: 4:00PM
    Description: Freddy Mercury began to feel a huge admiration of Monserrat Caballé since he saw her performing for the first time in Verdi’s Un ballo in Maschera at the London Royal Opera House in 1983. That admiration continued for several years, and during Mercury’s tour A Kind of Magic (1986), he stated in an interview that his favorite opera singer was “Montsy” and that she “has the best voice of all living human beings". Thus, after many attempts from Mercury to meet with the opera star asking if they could meet and perform together, in 1987, without a warning, he sat down at the piano at the former Hotel Ritz in Barcelona and began to improvise Exercises in Free Love. It was the first time Queen front man Freddie Mercury met Spanish soprano Montserrat Caballé. This meeting led to a legendary musical partnership, and friendship, between the best of classical and contemporary music to create the iconic anthem of the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. Join us in this Geek Speak to understand how the chemistry between Mercury and Caballé generated an amazing friendship story behind the 1992 Olympic Games.
