Lectures
Hope and Change. Or not. The Bastian Foundation Diversity Lecture: "Racism's Adaptations Since the Civil Rights Movement" will try to move you into that sphere of understanding through narratives, film and spirituals performed by famous Baritone Robert Sims. There will be choreography and theater by local dancers and choreographers Sofia Gorder and Notasha Washington. Robin DiAngelo, former associate professor of multicultural education at Westfield State University in Massachusetts, will help you answer the questions about racism, blatant or subtle. Vieve Gore Concert Hall, Jewett Center for the Performing Arts, Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 East, Monday, Jan. 18, 11 a.m., free, WestminsterCollege.edu Those who get mad at the media complain of a lack of objectivity. But let's face it—human beings are subjective. Jay Rosen, press critic and associate professor of journalism at New York University, has a different view of the situation. He calls it "Transparency Is The New Objectivity: Two Ways To Be Trusted In the Production of News." Seating at this lecture is limited. University of Utah, Language and Communications Building, Room 1110, Thursday, Jan. 14, 3:30 p.m., free, non-students RSVP at: bit.ly/1RaKGwP

Panel Discussion
Remember the 2002 Olympics? Utah has the greatest snow on earth—and the worst inversions. KUER Conversations focus on cleaning up Utah's air and will examine the role politics plays. This new series will address public issues in an open, solutions-based forum. Join them for "Pollution Gets Personal," moderated by environmental reporter, Judy Fahys. The panel even includes an industry lobbyist and a state senator on the natural resources committee. Salt Lake City Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, 801-524-8200, Thursday, Jan. 14, 7 p.m., free, SLCPL.org
