Thomas A. Sebeok and the Scientific Self

08:00 am to 05:00 pm on Mar 29
Indiana University Archives, 1320 E. 10th Street, Herman B Wells Library E460, Bloomington, IN 47405

This exhibition brings together the different roles, interests, and areas of research “pollination” that consumed Indiana University Distinguished Professor Thomas A. Sebeok (1920-2001). Sebeok described himself as an academic Apis mellifera (honeybee), who darts “solitary from flower to flower, sipping nectar, gathering pollen from flowers, serendipitously fertilizing whatever he touches.” The inquisitive polymath and world renowned pioneer in semiotics taught linguistics, anthropology, and Uralic and Altaic studies at IU from 1943-1991. This exhibit features unique materials spanning Sebeok’s career, focusing on his work in zoosemiotics and animal communication, visual arts and literature, and academic publishing.

Kadampa Meditation Center Bloomington 406 S. Walnut St. Bloomington, IN 47401

Whether or not the holiday season is peaceful and enjoyable all depends upon our state of mind. Leading up to the holidays can be quite stressful and when the day comes, often our expectations of how things should be are not at all how they turn out.
This year, prepare for the holidays by preparing your mind. Join us for this light-hearted and insightful Friday Night Lecture! Through guided meditations and Buddha’s practical advice, we will learn how to cultivate a more relaxed, joyful, and loving mind. In this way, we can begin to really enjoy the people and activities that are a part of our holiday season.

Everyone is welcome!
