Using anecdotes, analysis, and LARGE doses of humor, Professor Engel will bring to life this twentieth-century giant. Originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, Dr. Engel now lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he has taught at the University of North Carolina, North Carolina State University, and Duke University. He earned his M.A. and Ph.D. as a Woodrow Wilson Fellow at UCLA. While at UCLA he won that university’s Outstanding Teacher Award. Dr. Engel has written ten books published in England, Japan, and the United States. His mini-lecture series on Charles Dickens ran on PBS television stations around the country. His articles have appeared in numerous newspapers and national magazines including Newsweek. He has lectured throughout the United States and on all the continents including Antarctica. Four plays which he has written have been produced during the last ten years.

Since 1980, Dr. Engel has been President of the Dickens Fellowship of North Carolina, the largest branch of this worldwide network of clubs. The sales of Dr. Engel's books, CDs, and DVDs have raised funds for The Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital which Dickens helped found in London in 1852.

2016 SF Bay ACS Presentations: Golden Gate Cetacean Research Organization: The Porpoises and Dolphins of the SF Bay Area External Event Page
Sausalito, California
Golden Gate Cetacean Research biologists, Jon Stern, Bill Keener and Izzy Szczepaniak, will present the results of their newest research on the porpoises and dolphins of San Francisco Bay, providing an up-to-date since their last talk for ACS in 2012. The team has been studying two species, harbor porpoises and bottlenose dolphins, from shore and boat for the past 6 years. The team has compiled the first photo-identification catalogs for harbor porpoises and the San Francisco Bay bottlenose dolphins, giving us a window into the lives of individual animals. They will share their observations about the unexpected return of harbor porpoises to the Bay, and the appearance of bottlenose dolphins off our coast. Learn about changes to the Bay ecosystem that played a role in bringing back porpoises, the warm water El Nino conditions that brought bottlenose dolphins up from Southern California, and what this may mean for our coast. Here's your chance to find out the difference between a porpoise and a dolphin, where to see these fascinating creatures, and what you can do to help in the study of marine mammals in the Bay.

Kronprinz Wilhelm and the Prinz Eitel Friedrich External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
Venue: Mariners' Museum Library Exhibition
During two years of internment (1915-1917) at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, the officers and sailors of Kronprinz Wilhelm and Prinz Eitel Friedrich constructed a replica German village from spare wood and metal found on the ships and in the shipyard, and named it Eitel Wilhelm. The sailors sold tickets for tours, produce from their gardens and hand-made objects to the tourists, all in support of the German Red Cross. When the United States entered World War I, that village was burned to the ground to make room for expansion of the shipyard. The ships were sent to Philadelphia for conversion for the US Navy, and the sailors were packed off to a prison camp in Georgia. The internment story of a crew creating a local tourist attraction to benefit their Red Cross is rare, possibly unique in history, and brings a touch of humanity to a tragic war.

Transcommunality: Laura Anderson Barbata, Collaboration Beyond Borders External Event Page
Winter Park, Florida
This exhibition documents the work of Mexican-born, New York-based artist Laura Anderson Barbata and her decade-long project with stilt-walking communities in Trinidad and Tobago, Mexico, and Brooklyn. Her project highlights the vitality of the moko jumbie stilt walking tradition and demonstrates the possibility of using this storied art form as a platform for social contemporary performance, group participation, and protest. Spanning from 15 feet tall to just 11 inches small, the works presented in the exhibition range from textile-based to sculptural objects, as well as photographs, videos, and projections that document the collaborative projects. Laura Anderson Barbata is known for her participatory, collaborative art, often involving partnerships with local artisans. The relationships forged with collaborators and the cultural exchanges that take place are the most important components for the artist. "Transcommunality" encompasses community art, public art, social intervention, performance, and sculpture, focusing on an artist who has dedicated her practice to confronting the hierarchies of so-called “fine art” and popular art, craft and folk traditions. "Transcommunality: Laura Anderson Barbata, Collaboration Beyond Borders" has previously been presented at the Centro de las Artes de Nuevo León, Monterrey; Museo de la Ciudad de México, México, D.F.; and Museo Textil de Oaxaca, México; BRIC House, Brooklyn, NY; and the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Wonders of the Arctic 3D External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
Venue: 100 Museum Drive
The Arctic has always been a place of mystery, myth and fascination. The Inuit and their predecessors adapted and thrived for thousands of years in what is arguably the harshest environment on earth. Today, the Arctic is the focus of intense research. Instead of seeking to conquer the north, scientist pioneers are searching for answers to some troubling questions about the impacts of human activities around the world on this fragile and largely uninhabited frontier. Wonders of the Arctic centers on our ongoing mission to explore and come to terms with the Arctic, and the compelling stories of our many forays into this captivating place will be interwoven to create a unifying message about the state of the Arctic today. Underlying all these tales is the crucial role that ice plays in the northern environment and the changes that are quickly overtaking the people and animals who have adapted to this land of ice and snow.
All day; 40 min. long
