Advisors, please share this information with your advisees: As students are preparing to register for fall 2012 classes, their records must be free of holds, including those placed on their records due to unpaid parking tickets. To ensure records are free of a “parking ticket hold,” students may request a listing of any unpaid tickets via email by sending a message to email@example.com. All requests will be given the highest priority to assist students with clearing any outstanding debt they owe to KU due to parking tickets. Included in the email should be the vehicle’s plate number and state. All ticket payments are received by the Bursar’s Office. Once payment has been made in full, the student must bring the receipt to Public Safety located in OM 13 at which time the payment will be verified and the seal removed. If you have any questions, please call x3-4860, x3-4864 or x3-4861.

College of Visual and Performing Arts Faculty First Thursday! Margaret Noel, assistant professor in the Department of Fine Arts, will present “Lost in Translation: The Drawn Travelogue” on Thursday, Apr. 5, at 11 a.m. in the Sharadin Art Building Room 120. Margaret Noel will present body of work based on drawing done on location during her travels. Back in the studio, Noel loosely references the drawings to create collages that abstract and fracture the original forms. While some elements are fully articulated, others are simplified, generalized and transformed, allowing viewers to feel as if they have stumbled upon the record of a half-forgotten journey—a blurred remembrance of a landscape rather than a precise rendering.

The History Department would like to invite you to the 2012 Esther Willits Lecture, “Rockin’ Las Americas: Rock Music and Countercultural Politics in Latin America during the ‘Long 1960s’ “ The lecture is being held Apr. 3, at 7 p.m. in Boehm Science Building room 261. We hope that you can join us!
Eric Zolov, author of “Refried Elvis” and Professor of Latin American History at SUNY, Stony Brook will speak on when Elvis Presley burst onto the musical scene in 1950s America, it wasn't only the cultural landscape on this side of the border that was changed forever. Transported on the wings of transnational capital, American rock 'n roll sowed the seeds of youth rebellion throughout Latin America during the 1960s. From Mexico to Argentina, Cuba to Guatemala, by the early 1970s every country in Latin America had established its own vibrant rock and countercultural scene. Because of the widespread use of English and adoption of U.S. and British-influenced countercultural styles, however, many in Latin America critiqued these movements as mere reflections of "cultural imperialism." Yet for their participants, these movements offered an opportunity to liberate oneself from the dictates of repressive states and conservative societies, while forging new definitions of a national identity.
