Talks & Lectures
Patriarchal societies like Utah often ignore the contributions of women. Now you'll have a chance to hear about little-known stories of women's history in Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich's lecture "Beyond Letters and Diaries: Unexpected Sources in Women's History." Ulrich is a professor of history at Harvard University, and earned a Pulitzer for A Midwife's Tale, a book that became a landmark in women's labor history. The talk is in honor of the Aileen H. Clyde 20th Century Women's Legacy Archive. J. Willard Marriott Library, Gould Auditorium, University of Utah, 295 S. 1500 East, 801-581-3421, Thursday, March 10, 7 p.m., free and open to public, Lib.Utah.edu

Nazanin Boniadi—actress, human-rights activist and Amnesty International spokesperson—will speak on "Breaking Barriers for Women and Girls" as part of the Tanner Center for Nonviolent Human Rights Advocacy's "Artists as Advocates" series. University of Utah, Union Saltair Room, 200 S. Central Campus Drive, Monday, March 7, 4 p.m., free and open to the public, HumanRights.Utah.edu

Gun-Control Debate
Don't tell the Second Amendment freaks, but the Japanese are coming. In "Utah Debates Japan: A Public Event," the University of Utah's John R. Park Debate Society hosts a public debate featuring the Japanese National Debate Team taking on the resolution "Resolved: The United States of America should ban the private ownership of firearms." Well, that's not going to happen, but it's worth a debate—peacefully. University of Utah, Languages & Communication Building, Room 1110, 255 S. Central Campus Drive, 801-581-6554, Thursday, March, 3, 7 p.m., free and open to the public, Debate.Utah.edu

Think Tank
This takes speed-dating to a new, more cerebral level: The Jung Society is starting a Think Tank where members will meet monthly for three hours in a "forum for thoughtful individuals to collaborate on and enhance ideas." No more than 12 members will meet for a 30- to 60-minute presentation (TED-style) by a team member, followed by a two-hour discussion on the topic raised. Visit the website for more details. 29 W. Layton Ave., 801-948-0920, Tuesday, March 8, $50/month (billed annually), JungUtah.com
