Week Nine: November 17-23

Ether Arts is proud to present Dr. Gerald Buckberg, a renowned cardiothoracic surgeon and OSU alumnus! Please join us in welcoming him on Friday, November 21, at 1:00 pm in 160 Meiling Hall.

In addition to his research in cardioplegia and the treatment of acute myocardial infarction, Dr. Buckberg has helped to develop a revolutionary theory on the formation and function of the heart called The Helical Heart. You can read more about his achievements in cardiac research in his bio (attached).

So why is Ether Arts interested in Dr. Buckberg? What’s so artsy about a cardiothoracic surgeon? We’re glad you asked! According to Dr. Buckberg, the heart’s spiral movements could be described as a sort of dance… so he collaborated with a dance company to set this theory in motion!

Please join us to hear Dr. Buckberg speak about the helical heart theory. His talk will be followed by a Q&A session, as well as a viewing of The Cardiac Dance.

LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED!!! Please RSVP to by Wednesday, November 19 to make sure that we have enough food for everyone.

Vanity Theft video opportunity
Hello, we're a local four girl indie rock band called 'Vanity Theft' and we just released our second album "PostScript: Pace Yourself". It's getting airplay on several local indie stations and reviews. You can check out our music and other info at our website or our myspace.

We're really wanting to shoot a music video for one of our new songs (our tracks are professionally mastered) and are trying to get in touch with students at OSU who might need to shoot a video for credit. We'd love their help and would love to help them as well. If anyone is interested, we could mail you a cd or drop one off. Thanks so much, hope to hear from you.


Please see below for Nia Love’s interview/class schedule regarding the new faculty position in our department. All undergraduate and graduate dance majors are encouraged to attend her research presentations, as well as the student meeting. Annie Kloppenberg and Robyn Young will lead the student meeting and distribute student response forms.
