All Day Xiaojing Yan: Heaven and Earth Mixed Media Installation (Multi-Day Event)

Xiaojing Yan's Heaven and Earth is a mixed media installation that features a mountain made of thousands of pine needles embedded in a silk organza and presents a different approach to traditional Chinese landscape painting.

Xiaojing Yan is a Chinese-Canadian artist based in Markham, Ontario. Her art highlights sculptural installations that combine the cultural and natural world and integrates both Western and Eastern elements, paralleling her own cultural identity a a Chinese-Canadian.

  • All Day Anishinabe Elder Jim Dumont Two Road Teachings

    Jim Dumont is Onaubinisay (Walks Above the Ground), an Ojibway-Anishinabe of the Waubezhayshee (Marten) Clan. He is a 5th Degree Midewiwin of the Three Fires Midewiwin Lodge, originally from the Shawanaga First Nation on Eastern Georgian Bay.

    On the Two Road Teaching:

    “In the beginning, while the races still lived together as one, each of the races had to come to a decision as to what direction he would choose. During this time the White Man and Red Man found themselves walking together along the same road. At some point in their journey they came to a division in their path. One of the two possible roads before them offered knowledge and growth through accumulation and mounting of all that could be seen ahead (a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree vision). This is what White Man chose and he has developed in this ‘linear’ and accumulative fashion ever since. The other road appeared less attractive materially and quantitatively but offered a whole and comprehensive vision that entailed not only vision before but also vision behind (a three-hundred-and-sixty degree-vision). This was a circular vision that sought to perceive and understand the whole nature of an object or event its physical reality as well as its soul. The Red Man chose this road and he has developed in this circular and holistic way ever since.”

  • 4:00 PM - 4:50 PM Stability in Mathematical Biology

    Department of Mathematics Seminar Speaker:  Professor Connell McCluskey, Department of Mathematics, Wilfrid Laurier University

    Title: Stability in Mathematical Biology


    In the 1920's, Alfred Lotka and Vito Volterra (working separately) developed the same mathematical model of a predator-prey system.  The solutions of this system are periodic and can be graphed as closed loops in the xy-plane.  This can be shown by using a simple function g(x) = x - 1 - ln(x). In the early 2000's, the same function was used to study 2- and 3-dimensional models of disease spread – this time showing that solutions were not periodic.  Instead, it was shown that solutions would tend to a constant value called an equilibrium. We say that the equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable. A few years later, the same function was used to show that higher dimensional disease models had a globally asymptotically stable equilibrium.  More recently, it was used for infinite dimensional disease models. I will give an introduction to this area, including some recent projects that students at Laurier have worked on.
