Best Source for Small Business, Educational & Professional Networking Events

The events that one is able to attend must always be measured by the value one is able to derive from it from the energy one puts into it.  You have to put yourself out there to even begin to experience what may come from it.  Part of even beginning this quest is at least knowing what’s out there.  To that end, Social Capitale and its community help one another publicize the best networking events –  the who, what, when where and why?  Use this tool as part of your arsenal to enhance your social capital, your network of individuals and resources to make you more successful.

If you aren’t finding what you are looking for, let us know.  If we are missing something, you have a choice as well; let us know or even better, join and add it for everyone else for mutual benefit. Sometimes you have to give in order to receive!.

And never be shy to provide your feedback!

About Cafe de Casa: 

“When Lucimar Canedo arrived in San Francisco from the tiny town of Santa
Rosa, near Goiania, Brasil, she came with a small suitcase and a lot of talent.
By luck she found a job at a Brazilian owned pizzeria and within a short time
she was independently catering Brazilan weddings and parties. After being
joined by her daughters Thais and Amanda, they decided to work towards a shared
dream of opening a café. They are proud to share with all of us a little bit of
Brasil here in the Bay Area.”

Medieval Matters: Historical Fiction and the Anachronistic Style
May 23 @ 2:30 am – 11:59 pm


Historical Fiction and the Anachronistic Style

When we read a work of historical fiction, are we encountering the real truth
about the past—or are we working through a series of lies designed to deceive
us in new ways? According to the writer Hilary Mantel, “you don’t become a
novelist to become a spinner of entertaining lies: you become a novelist so you
can tell the truth.” But what is “truth” in a historical novel—and what are
“facts”? How do writers, readers, scholars, and critics understand the
suspension of disbelief required if we are to immerse ourselves in a past
world, even as our own world challenges us to separate fact from fiction, truth
from lies, in ever more demanding and creative ways? 

Drawing on his dual experiences as a historical novelist and a scholar of
medieval literature, University of Virginia professor Bruce Holsinger will
explore the changing nature of historical fiction in an era of alternative
facts and political mendacity. 

Bruce Holsinger, Linden Kent Memorial Professor of English, University of
Virginia

Bruce Holsinger is the author of five books, including A Burnable Book, which
received the John Hurt Fisher Prize; and The Invention of Fire, which imagined
the beginnings of gun violence in the Western world. His academic books have
received major prizes from the Modern Language Association, the Medieval
Academy of America, and the American Musicological Society. He has received
fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, the National
Endowment for the Humanities, and the Guggenheim Foundation.

Political Thicket, Mathematical Quagmire: How voting is and is not a math problem @ Cubberley Auditorium
May 23 @ 2:30 am – 11:59 pm


There are many structural questions about voting that sound like mathematics,
if you’re a mathematician.  One of the thorniest is about how to think about
the choices and consequences involved in redistricting.  I’ll describe a
front-row look at the math, the politics, and the law in collision, as we wait
on yet another Supreme Court gerrymandering decision.

Moon Duchin is a Associate Professor of Mathematics and Senior Fellow in the
Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University. Her mathematical specialties
are geometric group theory, geometric topology and dynamics. For the last few
years she has been working on mathematical and computational interventions in
redistricting. In 2018, she was the consulting expert for Pennsylvania governor
Tom Wolf in that state’s court-mandated redistricting process.

Speculative Fictions: Possible Futures for the Planet @ Terrace Room
May 23 @ 9:00 pm – 11:59 pm


Wai Chee Dimock (Yale), Colin Milburn (Davis), John Plotz (Brandeis) What does
literature have to tell us about the future of the earth in the Age of the
Anthropocene? Join us at CSN for “Speculative Fictions: Possible Futures for
the Planet.” On this panel, critics Wai Chee Dimock, Colin Milburn and John
Plotz examine science fiction novels that take us to fantastic worlds to
refresh our perspective on our own. Futuristic technologies, aliens and
non-linear histories are just a few among the many extravagant devices of
adventure they will discuss in novels and media from across time and from
around the world, ranging from Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels (1726) to
Cixin Liu’s Three-Body Problem (2006), in its beautifully-crafted translation
by Ken Liu. We invite you to engage our speakers on topics ranging widely from
subjects within literary studies, such as how narratives create imaginary
worlds to interdisciplinary issues in environmentalism and the significance for
the humanities of science and technology.

Digital Humanities volume, The Chinese Deathscape
, just published by Stanford University Press.

A reception will follow the talk.

‘This Is All My Life!’: A Philosophy of Life and Death in Eight Paintings, or
Why Charlotte Salomon’sLife? or Theater? is Not an Autobiography 

“This is all my life!” is a phrase twice reported by those who knew the German
Jewish painter Charlotte Salomon in 1941–43, when she created a monumental
single artwork of 784 paintings in gouache which she numbered and titled with
question marks:Leben? oder Theater?/Life? or Theater?

Paradox upon paradox is inscribed into this image-music-text work in three
parts, which speaks to modernist painting as much as to novel technologies of
radio and silent, sound, and color cinema. Created under the menace of
annihilatory racist fascism in German and France, with the haunting memory of
the First World War embodied in the artist’s mother (a nurse) and father (a
surgeon and a survivor of the trenches),Life? or Theater? is both a grand
historical narrative and the analysis of a mystery: a crime committed in the
intimacy of the domestic everyday.

For over 25 years I have been puzzling over what this work is. Drawing on a
range of feminist approaches to the complex issues of the enunciation of
feminine, Jewish, and minority subjectivities in the visual arts and modern
media, I shall use the enigma in the phrase “This is all my life!” to argue
against the autobiographical interpretation and to suggest a unique form of
philosophical inquiry into the choice between death and life.

Griselda Pollock is Professor of Social and Critical Histories of Art and
Director of the Centre for Cultural Analysis, Theory and History at the
University of Leeds. Known for her longstanding work reshaping art history to
acknowledge the creativity of women and artists from across all cultures, her
major books includeOld Mistresses: Women, Art, and Ideology (1981 and 2013),
Vision and Difference (1988 and 2003), and Differencing the Canon: Feminist
Desire and the Writing of Art’s Histories (1999). She has recently published
Charlotte Salomon and the Theatre of Memory

 (Yale University Press, 2018) and is currently writing a feminist analysis of
Marilyn Monroe. Learn more about her workhere

Adrienne Rich: A Celebration of Her Poems
May 24 @ 2:30 am – 11:59 pm


Adrienne Rich (1929-2012) was one of the defining poets of our time and place.
She came to national and international prominence with her feminist poems of
the 1960s and 1970s, but her practice, as personal as it was political, evolved
over the more than sixty years of her published volumes. The recent publication
of her Collected Poems: 1950-2012, her Selected Poems, and of a revised and
updated Norton Critical Edition of her Poetry and Prose, have renewed attention
to and appreciation of her extraordinary achievement for a world urgently in
need of her deeply ethical and eloquent words. On this evening celebrating
Adrienne Rich, the four editors of those books will read poems, with
commentary, in a dramatic exploration of the whole range of her work. Eavan
Boland, a distinguished poet who has written perceptively about Adrienne Rich’s
work and influence, will give the introductory remarks.
