Temple Grandin Thinking in Pictures: and Other Reports from My Life with Autism 7 PM • Monday, February 14 • Kenan Auditorium Free UNCW students & employees, $9 public Approximately 90 minutes with audience Q&A and book signing World-renowned author and animal scientist, Dr. Temple Grandin shares her insights on human and animal minds. A pioneer in increasing the public’s understanding of autism and animal behavior, Grandin draws from her experiences with autism to design humane livestock facilities and to articulate the singular ways in which individuals with autism experience the world. Diagnosed with autism as a child, Grandin talks about how her mind works—sharing her ability to “think in pictures,” which helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss. She is revered by animal rights groups and members of the autistic community, perhaps because in both regards she is a voice for those who are sometimes challenged to make themselves heard.

Michael Sandel hosts an informal Q&A with students on Monday, March 21. For details, visit www.uncw.edu/presents

Harvard professor and author of Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do?, Michael Sandel challenges us to examine the moral assumptions underlying our debated political and social issues. Justice is based on Sandel’s legendary course at Harvard University. Each year, thousands of students pack his lecture hall to hear him relate the big questions of political philosophy to the most vexing issues of the day. Sandel lectures about great philosophers of the past, from Aristotle to John Stuart Mill, but also debates contemporary issues that speak to our role as citizens. He illuminates the ways in which philosophy and reason can aid us in discovering this role, and thus our responsibilities to society.

Viver Brasil’s rousing Feet on the Ground/Aiyê takes audiences on an inspiring cultural journey through Brazil, with a dazzling program of African orixás (deities), ceremonial celebrations, the Brazilian martial arts dance of capoeira and carnaval. The performance showcases exhilarating Afro-Brazilian traditional and contemporary dance, stunning costumes and spirited percussion and vocals in a display that is “breathless and colorful … (a) vibrant swirl of motion and music.” (LA Weekly) Viver Brasil was founded in Los Angeles in 1997 by Artistic Director Linda Yudin and Co-Director and Choreographer/ Musician Luiz Badaró. The award-winning dance company is rooted in the traditional and contemporary forms and techniques of Salvador, the capitol of Bahia, Brazil, with its strong cultural ties to West Africa. Its innovative stage presentations explore Brazil’s racial, social and political history and are living extensions of the history of Afro-Brazilian dance on stage.
