In the same year that "The Winter's Tale" was performed at court in London (1609), Rudolf II issued his "Letter of Majesty" which granted religious toleration to his Protestant subjects within the Habsburg territories. This lecture argues that this was no coincidence and that Shakespeare's plays "King Lear" and "The Winter's Tale" can not only be read as impassioned appeals for religious toleration in an intolerant age but also provide a powerful contrast between the oppressiveness of English religious politics and the more enlightened situation in France and Central Europe in the early years of the seventeenth century.<br /> lvavra@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20181115T211648Z-10eec10-3e8-17cc1a16-Oracle Thu, 15 Nov 2018 15:16:48 -0000 Regulation of Proteostatsis at Cellular Membranes via Ubiquitylation http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20181102T200759Z-51eec67-3e8-1568d04b-Oracle <p>Date: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=datesearch&amp;date=11-27-2018">November 27, 2018</a> at 12:00 pm | <a href="https://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;&amp;dispatch=invite&amp;id=20181102T200759Z-51eec67-3e8-1568d04b-Oracle">Add event to my UICal</a> <br />Category: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Lectures,+Seminars+and+Meetings%22">Lectures, Seminars and Meetings</a>, <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Health+and+Medical+%22">Health and Medical </a> </p> Shafi Kuchay, PhD<br />Assistant Professor,<br />Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics<br />University of Illinois at Chicago<br /> ccolvin@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20181102T200759Z-51eec67-3e8-1568d04b-Oracle Fri, 02 Nov 2018 15:07:59 -0000 Ciudad Ñ: Ana María Shu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20181109T213321Z-21db22b-3e8-1a5fda1a-Oracle <p>Date: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=datesearch&amp;date=11-21-2018">November 21, 2018</a> at 12:00 pm | <a href="https://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;&amp;dispatch=invite&amp;id=20181109T213321Z-21db22b-3e8-1a5fda1a-Oracle">Add event to my UICal</a> <br />Category: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Cultural+Events%22">Cultural Events</a>, <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Lectures,+Seminars+and+Meetings+%22">Lectures, Seminars and Meetings </a> </p> Ana María Shua es una escritora argentina, autora de novelas, cuentos, microrrelatos y literatura infantil.

From the early 1990s Greece had questioned the right of Macedonians to self-determination leading to a complicated diplomatic dispute that fuelled nationalism on both sides of the borders. This talk aims to disentangle the trajectory of this complicated issue and argues that perceptions of ancient and modern history were seminal in entrapping Greek society in a state of denial. At the end of the day, why can't one ask for a "Macedonian salad" in Greek Macedonia?<br /><br/><br />Kostis Karpozilos is currently a visiting scholar at the Remarque Institute at NYU.

In the same year that "The Winter's Tale" was performed at court in London (1609), Rudolf II issued his "Letter of Majesty" which granted religious toleration to his Protestant subjects within the Habsburg territories. This lecture argues that this was no coincidence and that Shakespeare's plays "King Lear" and "The Winter's Tale" can not only be read as impassioned appeals for religious toleration in an intolerant age but also provide a powerful contrast between the oppressiveness of English religious politics and the more enlightened situation in France and Central Europe in the early years of the seventeenth century.<br /> lvavra@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20181115T211558Z-3070974-3e8-37b0045b-Oracle Thu, 15 Nov 2018 15:15:58 -0000
