Come and join Dr. Kamran Sahami, Professor in MSU Denver’s Department of Physics, for a lively, interactive lecture and discussion about the very nature of physical reality. “Space-Time and Relativity for Everyone” explores fundamental ideas of what scientists believe time, space, matter and energy are and how they relate to each other.

“Looking South: Political and Cultural Issues through Latin-American Cinema” will be a look southward through a cinematic lens. Dr. Roberto Forns-Broggi, MSU Denver’s Professor of Spanish culture, literature and film, will lead a lively discussion using Latin-American film (all with English subtitles). Since cinema is one of the most efficient ways to debate political and cultural issues in a global society, this format will allow the participants to discuss the vibrant and living cultures that strive to survive in our world today.
