Science on Tap provides a relaxed atmosphere where researchers can engage in conversations about science in plain language with people who simply have curiosity about the topic August 12, 2015 Talk Presented by Dr. Steven Kinsey of the Department of Psychology at WVU. Cannabinoids: Drugs of Abuse or Ancient Medicine? Cannabis has been used for millennia for its medicinal properties, although it is also an addictive drug of abuse. Recent research has uncovered an endogenous cannabinoid (cannabis-like) system in the brain and periphery that affects many health outcomes, including liver function, hunger, pain, anxiety, depression, and inflammation. Dr. Kinsey will discuss recent research on the anti-inflammatory effects of our own naturally produced cannabinoids, using animal models of neuropathy and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as some of the negative behavioral effects of cannabinoid addiction and withdrawal.

Central PA Scholarship Golf Scramble
1:00 PM - 6:30 PM

The Central PA WVU Alumni Chapter’s premiere fundraising event, the Scholarship Scramble, has been scheduled. On August 14th the chapter will host its 9th annual scramble at Eagles Crossing Golf Club in Carlisle with a 1 PM shotgun start. All proceeds benefit the Chapter’s Scholarship Endowment held with the WVU Foundation. This endowment supports students from the Central PA Area attending WVU both now and for years to come. This year the Chapter will present a $2,000 scholarship to an area student currently attending WVU.
 
To date the Chapter has not only established this endowment but also awarded nine scholarships from both the endowment and scramble proceeds. The goal is to grow the endowment as we look to continue our support of area students attending WVU for generations to come.
 
Our success is directly attributable to your participation as a sponsor, donor, golfer or volunteer in one or all of our previous scrambles. The chapter and the scholarship committee thank you again for your support and would be honored if you would choose to participate once again in this year’s event.
 
A Sponsor Form outlining the different levels of sponsorships available is attached. Should you wish to donate a gift or service or volunteer your time please contact Larry Oliver at larryeer@verizon.net or 717-652-6095.  Our golfers can expect to see the scramble flyer soon to register. 
 
We look forward to seeing you in August.

"Objects as Subjects: Material Cultures of the Civil War Era"
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Morgantown
Downtown Campus

To mark the close of the Civil War sesquicentennial, the Department of History is hosting a conference called "Objects as Subjects: Material Cultures of the Civil War Era" that is open to the University community and public. Five presentations and a roundtable discussion will showcase a future direction of Civil War scholarship by exploring how material objects shaped the experience of war. The Civil War generated millions of things prized by collectors and preserved by archivists, but historians tend to focus on texts rather than objects. The recent controversy over the Confederate battle flag suggests how Civil War things continue to worry and rally people. The conference will bring to WVU eight scholars from Yale University, the University of Chicago, the University of Illinois, Boston University, Marshall University, Emporia State University, and Gettysburg College at the forefront of material culture studies. They will tell stories about objects ranging from enemy uniforms infested with disease and ceremonial swords crafted by jewelers at Tiffany’s to the cane that Congressman Preston Brooks used to beat Senator Charles Sumner and vacation cottages built by Civil War veterans for regimental reunions. Their stories will show how objects are not only portals to the past but instruments that shaped past habits and cultures. We can all learn more about the Civil War when we take things seriously.

Christine Kefferstan Memorial Concert
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Evansdale Campus - Creative Arts Center

Christine Kefferstan, who was professor of piano in the School of Music for 35 years, passed away last August, but her legacy lives on through her students.

Several of her former students will perform in a memorial concert for Dr. Kefferstan on Aug. 23, at 2 p.m. in the Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre of the Creative Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public.

The concert is being organized by former student Luke Frazier, who graduated in 2007 in piano performance. Frazier also recently established the Christine Kefferstan Memorial Piano Scholarship in the WVU School of Music.

The first scholarship recipient, Philip Nichols, is a piano performance student who studied with Kefferstan during his freshman year.

“When I decided to start the scholarship, I wanted to come and do the concert along with it,” Frazier said. “This is her legacy concert. Her work still goes on, even though she is not here.”

Frazier said he wanted to feature Kefferstan’s diverse students who have gone on to do a lot of different things.

Pianists on the program include Zach Wilson, now a doctoral student at the University of Texas, who will perform one of his original compositions.

Lisa Withers, who is associate professor of piano and music at Emory & Henry College in Virginia, will perform Debussy’s “Estampes-Pagodes” because Christine Kefferstan was known for her Debussy and Ravel.

Christine’s daughter, Mary Kefferstan, who is on the faculty of the New School for Music Study in Kingston, New Jersey, will perform the first movement of Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto. A graduate of Duquesne University, Mary won the 2008 Duquesne University Concerto Competition performing this concerto.

Kefferstan’s former students Solee Lee-Clark and Joyce Wang both studied with her for doctorates in piano performance. Lee-Clark will perform Two Sonatas by Scarlatti on the program and Wang will perform collaborative piece with current WVU flute student Keith Hanlon because Kefferstan was known for her collaborative piano performances.

Members of the WVU School of Music faculty and the WVU Symphony Orchestra will also be part of the memorial concert and Frazier programed Ravel’s “Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte” for the orchestra because this was the first piece that he and Christine Kefferstan ever worked on together.

Cellist Susan Bestul and violinist Margie Cooper, who performed in the Sarasvati Trio with Christine Kefferstan for many years, will perform with the orchestra. Cooper will perform “Meditation” from the opera “Thaïs,” and Bestul will join the Orchestra for “Rachmaninov Vocalise.”

For the concert finale members of the WVU choirs will join the orchestra for a performance of "Think on Me,” arranged by James Mulholland.

“We not only want to focus on Christine’s legacy, but how her legacy lives on, and we not only want this to be a memorial concert, but a very uplifting concert as well,” Frazier said.

He said the concert will also include short videos of Christine playing and interviews with people who knew her.

Christine Kefferstan was a classical pianist who performed all over the world, including Belize, London, Rio de Janeiro, Indonesia, Malaysia and Canada, as well as many venues in the United States, but she was best known for her love of teaching.

She was the founder of the annual summer Intersection of Jazz and Classical Music Keyboard Festival and Competition, held each June at the Creative Arts Center, and she was also closely involved in the School of Music’s efforts to become an All-Steinway School.

A graduate of the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati, she earned her doctorate with Israeli pianist David Bar-Illan and had additional coaching with Anna McGrosso, Sedmara Rutstein, and Viachaslov Gabrielov.

Kress Foundation Fellow to the Kunsthistorisches Institut, Florence, and a member of the School of Historical Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton. He specializes in Renaissance Florence and modern Italy, but has also published on the sculpture of Edgar Degas, the religious imagery of Barnett Newman, the photography of the Wright brothers, and the future of the book.

His major publications include “Donatello Among the Blackshirts: History and Modernity in the Visual Culture of Fascist Italy,” co-edited with Claudia Lazzaro (Cornell University Press, 2005), and “Renaissance Florence: A Social History,” co-edited with John T. Paoletti (Cambridge University Press, 2006). A former President of the Italian Art Society, Crum is currently working on the international dimensions of Florentine Renaissance art.

The J. Bernard Schultz Lecture Series in Art History was endowed in the College of Creative Arts in 2004 by donors who wish to remain anonymous.

American Pain Clinic was the king of the Florida pill mills. From 2008-2010, the clinic’s physicians distributed massive quantities of oxycodone to addicts posing as patients—giving rise to a new drug industry that tipped the current opioid crisis. Associate Professor John Temple chronicles the rise and fall of this game-changing pill mill in his latest book, “American Pain: How a Young Felon and his Ring of Doctors Unleashed America’s Deadliest Drug Epidemic.” In recognition of the book’s debut, the WVU Reed College of Media and the WVU College of Law will co-host a panel discussion to explore the painkiller epidemic and its impact on society.

Neuroscience Seminar - Dr. Tzumin Lee, Howard Hughes Medical Institute - Janelia Farm
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Health Sciences - Biomedical Science Research Facility

Neuro Seminar – Dr. Tzumin Lee Title: “Lineage- and age- dependent neural stem-cell fate” To create a complex brain, a diverse array of neurons needs to be specified. This is accomplished by neural stem cells that are both heterogeneous and that have age-dependent developmental potentials. Drosophila neural stem cells, called neuroblasts, are individually programmed to make a distinct yet stereotyped series of neuronal types, termed a lineage. We reconstruct the development of the entire Drosophila central brain by single-cell lineage analysis, and further elucidate the molecular genetic mechanisms that govern the specification of numerous related neuron types by lineage-specific, age-dependent neural stem cell fates. Speaker: Tzumin Lee, MD, PhD Janelia Group Leader, Development Biology and Neuroscience Howard Hughes Medical Institute- Janelia Farm Host: Dr. George Spirou When: Wednesday, September 2nd at 12:30pm Where: 301 BMRC These seminars are presented by the Department of Neurobiology & Anatomy, and the WVU Centers for Neuroscience.

Goodbye Gauley Mountain raises awareness about the devastation of mountain-top-removal (MTR) mining, while celebrating the Earth's ecosexual glory. Having coined the term SexEcology, Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens and have been developing this new field of research over the course of their thirteen-years.

Goodbye Gauley Mountain: An Ecosexual Love Story (2014)

Goodbye Gauley Mountain: An Ecosexual Love Story is the true tale of the two San Francisco “ecosexual” artist-lovers who join forces with environmental activists in trying to stop a destructive form of mining. This David-and-Goliath struggle for survival in the coalfields is narrated through an autobiographical family visit home. The documentary injects an otherwise dire situation with sexy fun and surprising activist strategies, such as a performance-art marriage to the mountains. Goodbye Gauley Mountain raises awareness about the devastation of mountain-top-removal (MTR) mining, while celebrating the Earth's ecosexual glory.

Having coined the term SexEcology, Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens and have been developing this new field of research over the course of their thirteen-year collaboration. They shift the metaphor of Earth as mother to that of lover, inspiring and engaging others in more mutual relationship with nature and each other. Infusing sensual pleasure, humor and absurdity into unlikely situations, Stephens and Sprinkle engage the unexpected, encouraging us to slow down the alarming speed of our lives. In doing so, they hope to increase awareness around the current rate of ecological devastation, and to open participants up to more viable possibilities for human and non-human survival in the future.

Annie Sprinkle was a sex worker before morphing into artist and sexologist. She has passionately explored sexuality for over forty years, creating her unique brand of feminist sex films, visual art and performance, as well as writing, teaching and lecturing.

School of Music Guest Artist Lecture: "The Mastery of Music" by Barry Green
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Evansdale Campus - Creative Arts Center

Barry Green served as Principal Bassist of the Cincinnati Symphony for 28 years, and more recently Principal Bassist of the California Symphony and Sun Valley Idaho Summer Symphony. As former Executive Director of the International Society of Bassists, he currently teaches at the University of California Santa Cruz and is active as a bass soloist, clinician and motivational speaker. Examples of his lectures can be found on his website at: www.innergameofmusic.com.

Green will also present a master class at 5 p.m. on Sept. 14 in Bloch Hall (Room 200A) of the Creative Arts Center and a guest artist recital at 8 p.m. on Sept. 15 in Bloch Hall.

Green was the first bass soloist ever to solo with the Cincinnati Symphony in 1970 when he commissioned Frank Proto to write the Concerto for Bass and Orchestra conducted by Erich Kunzel. He has since twice appeared with the Cincinnati Symphony under the late Maestro Thomas Schippers who personally commissioned the Frank Proto Violin and Double Bass Concerto (with Ruggiero Ricci). In 1993 Green performed Jon Deak’s concerto Jack and the Beanstalk conducted by Jesus Lopez-Cobos. He most recently performed the Deak concerto in February 2005 with the US Air Force Band in Washington DC, Constitution Hall and Duluth Symphony.

Barry is known for his creative and eclectic "Green Machine" and “Green Man” concerts including the bass in jazz, folk, rock, funk, hip-hop contemporary and world music in combination with, dance, voice, art and theater.

Green has written three books on the ‘mind-body and spirit’ of performing musicians. He is author of the Doubleday book "The Inner Game of Music," with W. Timothy Gallwey, and DVD (1986) which deals with musicians reaching their potential in performance and learning which has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide. He has written seven Inner Game of Music Workbooks published by GIA Music for keyboard, voice, instruments and ensembles.

Green’s 2nd book, "The Mastery of Music, Ten Pathways to True Artistry" was published by Broadway/Doubleday in May 2003. "The Mastery of Music" is based on interviews with over 120 world famous musicians on topics of courage, passion, creativity, discipline, humility etc. It deals with qualities of greatness from the human spirit that transcend all professions. Green’s most recent book (and DVD) is called "Bringing Music to Life" and was published by GIA Music. The book explores techniques of breath, pulse and movement that allow musicians to channel expression through their bodies. This work is based on exploring creativity and inspiration through collaboration with the great improvisation cellist David Darling and his organization called Music for People.

CCA Alumni-in-Residence Series: Ethan Clark
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Evansdale Campus - Creative Arts Center

Ethan Clark, who graduated with a degree in music education, will visit the CAC on Monday, Sept. 21. He will make a presentation to WVU music education students at 9 a.m. and also during the regular Music Convocation at 4 p.m. in Bloch Hall (200A). Given Ethan’s work with the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA), the School of Music is also inviting administrators, teachers and parents to the Music Convocation and it is also open to any interested community members.

Ethan’s presentation to students at 9 a.m. is titled “The Art of Family-School Partnerships.” During this session, music education methods students will explore and discuss the six national standards for family-school partnerships and how they relate to music program goals and other school-wide improvement goals. At the end of the presentation, students will work in groups to develop their own music program strategies for engaging the whole school-community in support of student success.

The Music Convocation presentation is titled “It Takes a Village” and will focus on new research and updated policies supporting arts education to help advocate for more music in the schools. Those attending will discover how they can collaborate more with their community by exploring the music education ecosystem, including school partners, players and policymakers, and take home best practices for collective impact.

Ethan joined National PTA in September 2012. He oversees the development and implementation of educational programs and partnerships that help PTAs to work with school leaders on improvements to the school that enrich the educational experience for all children. 

Prior to joining National PTA, Ethan worked with the Arts Education Partnership on projects such as the State Policy Database and ArtsEdSearch. From 2010 to 2011, he worked with a number of arts organizations, including the National Endowment for the Arts, the Future of Music Coalition, and the Washington Choral Arts Society. Ethan began his career as a high school director of bands and a music teacher in Pennsylvania’s public school system.

In addition to his bachelor’s degree from WVU, Ethan has a master of arts in arts management from American University, Washington, DC. He lives in DC and volunteers for a variety of service organizations including the DC Trust, DC Commission on the Arts and the Humanities, and the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative.

The EOC brings together speakers on the national and state economies, as well as West Virginia's biggest industries. Join us for a continental breakfast before the presenters begin--the wide variety of attendees, sponsors, and speakers make this event an excellent educational and networking opportunity. Online registration will be made available as the event date approaches. Please check our website (be.wvu.edu/bber) or contact Rachelle with questions and for information on how to register.
