Fall Film Series: Creativity in Focus – Tim’s Vermeer @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts

Fall Film Series: Creativity in Focus - Tim's Vermeer @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Co-presented with the Utah Film Center. Additional support provided by CUAC and Modern West Fine Art.

Tim’s Vermeer
A Penn and Teller Film
80 min | 2013 | USA | Rated PG-13
Screens in English and Dutch with English subtitles.

Tim Jenison, a Texas-based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: how did seventeenth-century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring) manage to paint so photo-realistically—150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning eight years, Jenison’s adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces; on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney; and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the Queen’s collection.

Law Review Symposium 2014- Legal Borders and Mental Disorders @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Nov 7 @ 7:30 am – 2:00 pm
Law Review Symposium 2014- Legal Borders and Mental Disorders @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-V) is developed and used by psychiatrists to determine whether someone should be diagnosed with a particular mental disorder. A great deal of debate surrounded the publication of the most recent version, in May 2013. Despite the manual’s explicit warnings against using it in forensic contexts, judges and attorneys continue to refer to it as the “psychiatric bible.” Significant legal rights and entitlements (including those related to criminal sentencing, health insurance, or disability benefits) hinge on whether someone’s mental illness is included within the DSM, and it has therefore become a very important, albeit imperfect, resource for the law. This symposium will investigate changes in the most recent version of the manual, and how these changes may impact someone’s legal rights. We will also discuss possible future revisions to the DSM.

This event will be streamed live online on the event webpage.

UCCD World Affairs Lecture: Erika George - Not My Life: The Human Costs and Rights, Consequences of Trafficking @ Vieve Gore Concert Hall in the Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

This program will begin with a short film Not My Life—the first film to depict the cruel and dehumanizing practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. Following the screening, Professor George will present an overview of the human rights consequences of trafficking and the high costs to children when protections are not in place. She will provide a survey of how US legal reforms, global business initiatives, and consumer choices can eradicate the exploitation of children and contribute to change.
Professor George earned a BA with honors from the University of Chicago and a JD from Harvard Law School, where she served as articles editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review, and holds an MA in international relations from the University of Chicago. She is a frequent speaker on issues related to women’s rights, human rights, and the rights and experiences of racial minorities.

This event is a program of the World Affairs Councils of America, with support provided by a grant from Carlson & the Carlson Family Foundation.

The Ambassador John Price & Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series is presented by the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy in partnership with Westminster College.
