At the Origins of the Love Duet: Monteverdi’s and Cavalli’s Shared Strophic Arias Thurs, Feb 17 at 4:30 p.m. in the Gerber Lounge of the English Philosophy Building Dalla Vecchia is a doctoral student in musicology in the UI School of Music of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Dalla Vecchia will explain the difference between a shared strophic aria and a duet, which are often confused, and how this type of aria was used in 17th-century opera for two dramatic functions: the expression of two lovers’ harmonious bond and the contrast of verbal confrontation. This talk will further examine the use of shared strophic arias in the work of composers Francesco Cavalli and Claudio Monteverdi. The event is free and open to the public. This event is sponsored by OSF and UI International Programs.

Economic Policies & Public Finance in Sri Lanka: Did War Expenditure Matter? Thursday April 14, 2011 4:00-5:30 p.m. 1117 University Capitol Centre (Commons) The Sri Lankan Civil War between the government and the Tamil Tigers was a 26-year long on-again off-again military struggle that came to an end only after the Sri Lankan army and navy crushed the Tigers in May 2009. The war caused significant hardships for the population, environment and the economy, and an estimated 80,000 -100,000 people were killed. During the period 1983-2009 Sri Lanka's defense expenditures were higher than other comparable conflict-ridden countries and it was the most militarised country in South Asia. Dr. H. Thenuwara, Adjunct Assistant Professor of International Studies will present the lecture. This presentation is sponsored by the South Asian Studies Program and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
