The Legitimacy of Policing and Citizenship – 51st Annual William H. Leary Lecture @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Feb 22 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
The Legitimacy of Policing and Citizenship - 51st Annual William H. Leary Lecture @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

What are police for? This topic has become a searing one over the last two years. Most people think the primary function of police is to address crime, but the reality is the decades of research finds little support for this popular idea. In fact, until recently, few believed that police made a substantial difference in the crime rate. What we do know is that the relationship that police have with the public is an important barometer of the public’s relationship with the state, and we know that police officers play a critical role in conveying important information to members of the public about their role and status as citizens. This lecture will explain the theory behind this idea and new empirical research that highlights not only the nature of the relationship that individuals have with legal authorities but also how the nature of that relationship implicates how we understand one another.

VIRTUE @ Plan-B Theatre in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner
Feb 23 all-day
VIRTUE @ Plan-B Theatre in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The most compelling character in Western Europe’s revolutionary Twelfth Century was a woman: Hildegard. She was an abbess, a visionary, a composer who wrote the world’s first opera, and a friend of popes and kings. She defied authority and insisted on the validity of her revelations and agency, daring to ask: Is it possible to bridge the gap between spirituality and sexuality?

Tim Slover’s VIRTUE, a play with music, features Christy Summerhays as Hildegard of Bingen, alongside Emilie Starr, Jay Perry and Shane Rogers, directed by Jerry Rapier.

The Size of the Risk: Histories of Multiple Use in the Great Basin @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Feb 23 @ 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
The Size of the Risk: Histories of Multiple Use in the Great Basin @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

The Great Basin, a stark and beautiful desert filled with sagebrush deserts and mountain ranges, is the epicenter for public lands conflicts. Arising out of the multiple, often incompatible uses created throughout the twentieth century, these struggles reveal the tension inherent within the multiple use concept, a management philosophy that promises equitable access to the region’s resources and economic gain to those who live there.

Multiple use was originally conceived as a way to legitimize the historical use of public lands for grazing without precluding future uses, such as outdoor recreation, weapons development, and wildlife management. It was applied to the Great Basin to bring the region, once seen as worthless, into the national economic fold. Land managers, ranchers, mining interests, wilderness and wildlife advocates, outdoor recreationists, and even the military adopted this ideology to accommodate, promote, and sanction a multitude of activities on public lands, particularly those overseen by the Bureau of Land Management. Some of these uses are locally driven and others are nationally mandated, but all have exacted a cost from the region’s human and natural environment.

National Theater Live presents “Amadeus” @ Broadway Centre Cinemas
Feb 25 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
National Theater Live presents "Amadeus" @ Broadway Centre Cinemas | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of Thrones, NT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play, broadcast live from the National Theatre, and with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world – and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God.

After winning multiple Olivier and Tony Awards when it had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, Amadeus was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.

Running time: 3 hours
