Gender Behavior Expert Jackson Katz Visits CU-Boulder
In his film, "Tough Guise," Jackson Katz uses an important image from another film: actor Frank Morgan
as the Great Oz, being discovered at the controls of his larger than life wizardly image. Morgan's character is found
to be an average man who felt pressured to meet the expectations of the inhabitants of a strange land. Such is the
case for boys growing up in America, according to Katz, an anti-sexist male activist who spent September 21-24 giving
presentations to CU-Boulder community members and the public.

Honoring Organist, Composer and Conductor Nadia Boulanger
Nadia Boulanger, the master musician and teacher of luminaries like Aaron Copland, Elliott Carter and Quincy Jones,
said the biggest question ever asked of her came from a young boy in Boston. He wanted to know what constituted a
masterpiece. "It is so fortunate that no answer exists," Boulanger said later. "To me,
genius is the greatest mystery of our existence. I can give you a few hints, but no firm answer."

our ability to fulfill our mission. And I will discuss how
