Making Lasers – Erik Brekke, Associate Professor of Physics
10-10:45 a.m.
GMS L052
Lasers are an abundant and essential part of our society, from lasers scanners to the clocks that run GPS. In this session we will explore what a laser is, and what is necessary to make them. We'll start with an introduction to light and atoms, and build our way towards our own working laser by the end of the talk!

Ghost Stories, Christian Fiction, and the Redemptive Gothic – Edward Risden, Professor of English
11-11:45 a.m.
GMS 434
Typically readers associate the term “Gothic” with horror fiction that revolves around ghosts, evil spirits, medieval motifs and dangerous circumstances, even murder and damnation. The idea of the Redemptive Gothic uses similar materials, but the spirits, instead of aiming to destroy, appear instead to help persons who need them with guidance and encouragement. The characters still find difficult circumstances at the boundaries of human experience, but they receive divine rather than infernal intervention and find courage or persistence rather than despair. Come and explore a different approach to reading and writing ghost stories, one amenable to spiritual insight if not always perfect endings.

11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
Ruth’s Marketplace, Michels Commons (formerly Sensenbrenner Union)
