Enchanted Asia
Feb 13 – Feb 14 all-day

Do you have a lucky charm? Before embarking on a course of action do you say a special mantra, check your astrological chart or perform a small ritual? If so, you are one of millions over thousands of years in a quest to ensure good fortune and protect against evil forces. The Enchanted Asia exhibit explores sorcery and witchcraft, charms, chants, rituals and magic in Asia that have been used for protection and to bring good luck, or alternatively, to cause harm to others.

The World Bewitch’d: Visions of Witchcraft from the Cornell Collections
Feb 14 @ 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

The exhibition “The World Bewitch’d” explores the origins and spread of the belief in witchcraft across Europe. It features rare and unique books and documents—from 15th-century witch hunting manuals to 20th-century movie posters—and it examines themes such as gendered stereotypes, belief in night flying, shapeshifting, demonic pacts, and the witch epidemics that resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands. “The World Bewitch’d” offers a rare glimpse of the treasures of the Cornell Witchcraft Collection, established by Cornell University’s first president, Andrew Dickson White, and now the largest in North America with more than 3,000 items.

The exhibition is on view from October 31, 2017 to August 31, 2018, in the Hirshland Exhibition Gallery in Carl A. Kroch Library, open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Click on “see more dates” at the top for more information, or check the library hours website for updates and Saturday hours: https://www.library.cornell.edu/libraries.

This exhibition is funded through the generous support of the Stephen E. ’58 MBA ’59 and Evalyn Edwards ’60 Milman Exhibition Fund.

“Using phylogenomics to identify new genes involved in Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis”- Armando Bravo
Feb 16 @ 12:20 PM – 1:20 PM

Armando Bravo
Posdoctoral researcher, Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research

My research is focused in molecular genetics of mycorrhizal symbiosis in the legume Medicago and I am dissecting the most important genes involved in this symbiotic interaction by using genetics, bioinformatics and cell biology.
