Canceled: David Cremean - "Waco and the Branch Davidians (Re)visited"

BHSU Communications 0 61
Time: 4pm
Location: Jonas 110
Description: The catastrophe created by the 51-day, February 28-April 19, 1993 government siege of the Branch Davidians near Waco merits constant remembering and revisiting. Few events in American history have spurred so much controversy, much of it incredibly biased from one side or the other. I see this lecture as essentially informing and updating people who know little or have essentially forgotten the matter, even as Branch Davidians and others still own and live on the infamous, haunted property.

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

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

BHSU Communications 0 241
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.

A local internet company is offering broadband services to students at Black Hills State University who do not currently have internet access at home. BHSU announced earlier this week that classes will be taught online for the next two weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In a statement from Vast Broadband, company representatives said they value being a part of each of the communities they serve and they want to do all they can to assist those in need during this critical time.
