Some of our upcoming programs

16 - Bringing 365 days of Sunshine to New Mexico: Foundation for Open Government
It has been said, "no transparency, no democracy." What is the state of transparency in New Mexico, especially in today's political environment? The New Mexico Foundation for Open Government, known as FOG, has been educating, advocating and sometimes litigating in the name of government access for 24 years. What lies ahead? A presentation by Susan Boe, executive director of FOG.
Monday, September 22, 1-2:30pm at OASIS
54 - Shakespeare & the Jews
In 1290, King Edward I expelled all Jews from England where they had lived since first arriving with William the Conqueror in 1066. William Shakespeare lived between 1564 and 1616, which means he had little if any opportunity to see or get to know a practicing Jew. Yet Christopher Marlowe's The Jew of Malta was a hit around 1590 and Shakespeare followed with The Merchant of Venice. Where did they get their material? Are these plays anti-Semitic? A lecture by Dr. Barry Gaines.
Tuesday, September 23, 1-2:30pm at OASIS
109 - Chacoan Time Capsule: Day Trip to Chaco Canyon    
Take an exciting journey to Chaco Culture National Historic Park, the extensive ruins of the greatest architectural achievement of the northern American Indians. Chaco was the main social and ceremonial center of the Anasazi culture, and flourished about 1000 years ago. The complex system of rooms and kivas at Pueblo Bonito and Chetro Ketl, an abundance of turquoise jewelry, and cryptic petroglyphs are the intriguing legacy of a people whose disappearance 700 years ago is shrouded in mystery. A Destination Southwest trip.
Tuesday, September 23, 8am-8pm (Trip)
