Women's Space Conference: May 20, 2014, 5:30 - 7 pm

Women's Space Conference:  Between Rights and Representations:  LGBTQ Movements in the US from the '70's to Today - Elisabetta Bini
How have lgbtq (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, queer) movements redefined U.S. politics, society and culture since the 1970s?  What is their role in contemporary debates about lgbtq rights and identities?

Elisabetta Bini, Research Fellow at the University of Trieste, will explain the ways in which lgbtq movements have challenged the specific forms of discrimination carried out against gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people in the U.S.; the relations they have established with other movements and groups, such as feminists; and how they have defined their rights (including marriage rights) and identities.

Dinosaurs, Caves and Osmiza - Oh, Yeah!

Looking for something to do in Trieste on Sunday?  Take advantage of the beautiful weather and get out on the Carso.  Today an outdoor itinerary that's great for kids.  No museums, plenty of exercise and fresh air, lots of fun!

MORNING      Unfortunately, this dinosaur site can only be visited on SUNDAYS from 10am-1pm and 2-6 pm.  If you have a Group you can organize a Group visit outside of their regular Sunday hours.   Call 3477393118; 3471006724 or write to cooperativagemina@gmail.com

Visit the Dinosaurs at Villaggio del Pescatore - Antonio is our own local guy and Laura is a gigantic dinosaur visiting from Montana.  You see Antonio right where they found him.  Pretty neat.  On Sundays there is also a small cave that you can visit right next door.  http://www.dinosauroantonio.it/dove_siamo_2.html

After seeing Antonio, and maybe the cave next door, take a walk around the waterfront of Villaggio del Pescatore (Fishman's Village) and see the fishing and pleasure boats. 

AFTERNOON

A Cave - the Grotta Gigante and lunch in an Osmiza (not necessarily in that order!)
Grotta Gigante is a Giant Cave located in Borgo Grotta Gigante.  Bring your walking shoes and a sweater or jacket.  It's always about 50° F or 15° C in there.  You might even see the bear!  http://www.grottagigante.it/

Osmiza - This is a great place to have a light lunch - Basically a local farmer opens his house for 8 days and serves whatever he raises or grows:  Wine, Ham, Eggs, Cheese, Salame.  Not formal and not a complete meal, but lots of fun.  Sit outside and relax and let the kids run around.  We can't tell you where to go because the open Osmizze are different every week. If you see some grape vines and a red Arrow, follow it!   Check out www.osmize.com for listings. 


Top off the day with an ice cream!  Any place is going to be fantastic!

Enjoy!

Living Edens - Friday Documentaries in May: Yellowstone, Big Sur, Denali

Come on a tour of the Living Edens in the US:  Yellowstone, Big Sur and Denali.

Friday nights at American Corner Trieste from 6-7 pm.  Open to the Public.


The Living Edens is a PBS series with state-of-the-art cinematography creating an intimate sense of place and captures a world of wonder, transporting viewers to isolated, undisturbed corners of the globe so pure they remind us of how the ancient world once was.

May 9th 6 pm - Yellowstone - America Sacred Wilderness
Yellowstone is a hive of activity. Paul Schullery has been watching wildlife here for 30 years and is one of the world's leading authorities on the park. As he guides us through this fresh, sunlit environment, wolves and grizzly bears mount extraordinary chase sequences in their quest for elk, and mountain lions gambol about without worry. Dramas occur in every season, for Yellowstone isn't just the world's first National Park - it's one of the great success stories in wildlife conservation.

May 16th, 6 pm -Big Sur - California Wild Coast
It has been called the greatest meeting of land and sea in the world. The Santa Lucia Mountains rise precipitously from the Pacific Ocean just south of Monterey on the central Californian coast. A sometimes violent, yet fragile place, Big Sur challenges the senses. Here air, water, land and life combine in spectacular fashion and provide refuge for a host of creatures including condors, falcons, blue whales, great white sharks and elephant seals. Wait for the morning fog to rise and enter this vast and impenetrable Big South Country.

May 23rd, 6 pm - Denali - Alaskan Great Wilderness
There is a place on Earth where an Alaskan wilderness spreads over more than six million acres like a living tapestry at the foot of the tallest peak in North America. Here, seasons of unfathomable extremes march beneath a mountain known as The Great One. In Denali's fierce winter, 20 hours of darkness and temperatures dipping nearly 100 degrees Fahrenheit below zero are routine; in summer, 20 hours of sunlight. Grizzly bear, wolf, moose, ground squirrel and golden eagle have each found their own way to live in this sub-Arctic eco-system where life pulses in a series of harsh, dark winters, framed by the light of June and August. In this land of extremes, plants and animals alike must be strong to survive. The place is an Eden called Denali.
