Exhibits, Films and Lectures Calendar
Hannah Arendt was a passionate political thinker who caused outrage and vigorous disagreement by many leading American and Israeli thinkers who read her book, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (1963). Adolf Eichmann was a leading figure in orchestrating the Holocaust, and in 1961 Israel captured him in Argentina and put him on trial for crimes against the Jewish people. Arendt attended the trial and wrote reports for The New Yorker which formed the basis of her book. Having been born and educated in Germany, Arendt was persecuted as a Jew by the Nazi regime, landing in jail and a concentration camp. Through a series of fortunate events, she was able to escape and eventually made her way to the United States. In the last years of her life, she taught at The New School for Social Research, where Bill Clohesy, professor of philosophy, became one of her doctoral students. Clohesy will provide commentary and lead a discussion following the film showing..

Chad Heinzel, associate professor of Earth and Environmental Science, will highlight the many ways UNI students have learned from the past, engaged in the present and building a promising future. The seminar will revisit recent Earth Science extended field trips, identify learning opportunities and investigate the developing careers of recent graduates.
Tom Wind, Iowa DNR officer, will provide information about Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). This relatively new technology was discovered in 1989 by two electrochemists at the University of Utah. A few determined scientists around the world continued this research to fully develop this technology with a few small companies who are on the verge of commercializing products that use this technology. This technology allows controlled fusion of hydrogen into helium in small modular reactors that can fit on a table top. The result is abundant thermal energy, with no radiation dangers, no radioactive byproducts and no combustion of fossil fuels. The cost of the hydrogen, the necessary materials and the catalysts are but a small fraction of the cost of traditional fossil fuels. Could this be the possible energy solution of the future?
