8. MITH Digital Dialogue: Paul Jaskot: "Between the Document and the Digital Map: The Need for the Archive and GIS to Analyze the Nazi Built Environment"

When: Monday, March 30, 2015 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Where: Hornbake : lower level behind Library Media Services : 0301
Event Type(s): Forum,Lecture,Seminar

In this talk, art historian Paul Jaskot will analyze documentary evidence of the imperial ambitions of the SS, as well as the digital visualizations of that archival evidence. The Central Building Office at Auschwitz was for its time one of the largest architectural offices in Europe, with over 150 SS architects and engineers employed, as well as an equal number of forced-labor draftsmen. These architects literally built the infrastructure of imperialist expansion in the East, as well was the brutal complementary structures of the Jewish genocide. Building off of his current work on digitally mapping the site (with his co-author, Anne Kelly Knowles), Jaskot asks what is at stake for digital mapping in the humanities, as well as for a spatial and architectural understanding of the Holocaust.

18. Energy Efficiency in India by Dr. Ajay Mathur

When: Friday, March 27, 2015 8:00 AM
Where: Van Munching : 1203
Event Type(s): Forum

The Director of the Bureau of Energy Efficiency of India, Dr. Ajay Mathur, is coming to UMD! At this intimate engagement, Dr. Mathur will be discussing how to balance the necessities of millions of Indians with global ecosystems.

Enhancing the quality of life of the vast majority of the Indian population necessitates increases in their energy consumption levels as well -- to ensure, amongst other things, access to adequate lighting, cooling, cooking fuels, and mobility. However, neither global fuel supplies nor the global ecosystem can support a world in which all Indians use energy at the same levels as will all Americans and Europeans in, say, 2030. Energy efficiency is therefore an essential component of India's development strategy; however, it continuously collides against the aspirations of a low-consumption population with limited willingness and ability to pay. As a result, energy-efficiency acceleration pathways, to be successful, have to recognize these limitations.
