Auditorium, Hunt Library
Monday, April 9
7:00 PM
The sufferings of a martyr, Jeanne D’Arc (1412-1431). Jeanne appears in court where Cauchon questions her and d’Estivet spits on her. She predicts her rescue, is taken to her cell, and judges forge evidence against her. In her cell, priests interrogate her and judges deny her the Mass. Threatened first in a torture chamber and then offered communion if she will recant, she refuses. At a cemetery, in front of a crowd, a priest and supporters urge her to recant; she does, and Cauchon announces her sentence. In her cell, she explains her change of mind and receives communion. In the courtyard at Rouen castle, she burns at the stake; the soldiers turn on the protesting crowd. (IMDB). This event does not require advance registration. Seating may be limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Attendance will be taken by Kiera Jonson.

NCSU Libraries presents: Wolfpack Citizen Science Challenge – Dleftia’s Secrets: Gold, Mouthwash, & Toxins

Teaching and Visualization Lab, Hunt Library
Wednesday, April 11
4:00 PM
We searched for the bacterial organism Delftia acidovorans around campus and used its ‘gold gene’ to track it down. Delftia also has a unique genetic sequence that may be involved in resistance to an ingredient in common mouthwashes. However, understanding Delftia’s secrets is not simple. We will discuss the genetic complexities of this microbe and what we can learn by studying how some of Delftia’s genes vary in nature. This event does not require advance registration. Seating may be limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Attendance will be taken by Marian Fragola
