Keynote Address
Brumbaugh Academic Center, Alumni Hall
Dr. Amy Cook
Chair, Art Department & Associate Professor, English Department
Stony Brook University
Casting: The Art and Science of Building Character and Why It Matters for You The process by which we build characters in our lives - the one that builds Alexander Hamilton the moment Lin-Manuel Miranda walks onstage - is under-theorized: how do we know who is "right" for a part? And how does the question change if we are "casting" our doctor or our president? In this talk I will explore examples of casting that effectively alter the cultural conversation through counter casting - casting that strategically "miscasts" actors in roles presumed to be raced white or male or able bodied. It is through casting actors counter to expectations that theatre will impact public discourse. Making these processes visible might allow us to rethink our own performances. I will address a disciplinary problem (casting) and a social problem (bias) using interdisciplinary sources of evidence to suggest ways of reimagining who among us get to play what roles on stage, screen, and life.

What do Manholes, Bees, and Flashlights Have in Common?

These are things that we see and use every day. For many of the ordinary everyday things, there is a simple mathematical concept that explains why these things work. The demonstration aims to show the simple math behind these three things and a few more. This presentation is designed for audience who have not had any math classes since their elementary years.

Sociology Senior Seminar: "Working With," not "Working For"
Brumbaugh Academic Center, Alumni Hall
For the purpose of exemplifying the service learning principle of "working with," rather than "working for" community partners, the Sociology Senior Seminar cohort has spent the semester in collaboration with the local chapter of the Pennsylvania Prison Society. In collaborating with this community partner, the group has worked toward completing two projects that would have a lasting positive and sustainable impact on the relationships between PA Prison Society members and the Huntingdon and Smithfield SCI staff. The goals of our projects were to increase the capacity of the Prison Society to benefit not just the society members but primarily the inmates.

Storytelling & Story Weaving: Morals that Matter
Global Commons
In this engaging, interactive session, audience members are invited to identify the morals of each original story shared by a storyteller. By the end of the semester, students studying Storytelling will have performed and adapted their original stories to three different audiences: An audience of peers; an audience of toddlers; and, an audience of elders. Dare, if you will, to engage creatively with us!
Faculty Sponsor: Grace Fala
The Stories of Slavery
Dale Hall Lobby
This humanities poster session will spotlight the semester-long research projects by students in EN 251 Slave Narratives. After studying classic slave narratives like those of Frederick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs, the class rediscovered and researched less well-known stories of slavery. These narratives range from daring tales of escape via the Underground Railroad to stories of secret societies plotting to end slavery. Please join us to discuss these understudied but deeply significant testimonies.
Eagle Fund Update
Brumbaugh Academic Center, Alumni Hall
At Juniata College, students are fortunate enough to gain real world investment experience through the Eagle Fund. The Eagle Fund was started with a generous donation of $100,000 from the late Klare Sunderland. Our Portfolio Management class learns about investment strategies and implements them in the Eagle Fund. The strategies that we study and implement are traditional buy and hold asset classes (40%), momentum (30%) and buy and hold individual value stocks (20%) and hedging (10%). In our presentation, we will be updating Juniata College on the performance of the Eagle Fund this past year, including acquisitions and sales. The Portfolio Management team will also discuss possible investment opportunities and those we chose not to pursue.

Engaging Justice & Advocacy on Campus and in our Lives
Global Commons
Who are you? How do you relate? Do labels weigh you down? How can personal awareness deepen interpersonal communication? What gets in the way of our being inclusive? What's your story? We welcome you to participate in heartfelt, original and engaging interactions led by student advocates from the Rhetoric of Coming Out class. Pause to get to know yourself and possibly, to change the world.

Integrated Community Partnerships
Kepple Hall 210
A series of client-based research design projects from Spring 2019 Integrated Media Arts Practicum will be highlighted in this panel discussion. Student researchers are required to work with a local community client to design and develop practical and functional deliverables that are both user friendly and sustainable for the business or organization.
Individual student learning objectives are connected in response to the needs and requests of the community client at the start of the research project. This experiential learning opportunity offers both the student and the client the option to seek and obtain real world knowledge and skills related to various areas of visual communication design.

Students will present a 5 minute presentation on their startup and take questions from the audience. Audience members will be able to pick which presentation they liked the best through a "txt" vote using their smart phone or other device. Students will also have posters of their business model on display that describe their startup process allowing further opportunities for audience members to engage with students about their startups.
