Keith Carter’s photography explores time, place, and vernacular culture. Dubbed a “poet of the ordinary” by the Los Angeles Times, Carter has spent a lifetime exploring humanity’s landscape through his artistic lens. His series Ghostlight captures the other worldly spirits of swamps, marshes, bogs, baygalls, bayous, and fens. This exhibition features over thirty photographs from his newest monograph Ghostlight, forthcoming from the University of Texas Press. Click here for more information

Gesture is pervasive in communication, this “visible action as utterance” offers stand-alone meaning that are recognized within a culture, e.g., “I got my eyes on you sign, or bye bye sign, or surprise look, or sigh of exasperation.” Gesture accompanies speech, for instance we point to things we are referencing during speech, and we depict actions that we are describing-“the cat is this big” and we cup our hands as a measure of size. It also allows us to co-ordinate turns, taking among many other roles.

This course (ANTH 331F) focuses on gestures, what it is, how it is used, how it is studied, what role it plays in conversation, thinking, and information processing, and what its cultural variations and underpinning are? Dr. Agwuele welcomes visitors to this course to explore the Systems Thinking lens of communication and understanding the role it plays in society.

Black men’s dismal college enrollments, disengagement and underachievement, and low rates of degree completion are among the most pressing and complex issues in American higher education. Perhaps more troubling than the problems themselves is the way they are continually mishandled by educators, policymakers, and concerned others. 

This event will bring community, campus leaders, and professionals all together to create partnerships and relationships to foster student success. We hope this event will inspire critical thought, critical conversation, and a critical desire to work toward the goal of creating personal and institutional pathways to secure student success!

This half-day event on Saturday, February 11, 2023, will feature innovative ideas from a variety of speakers. The 2023 theme is compleXity. Our world is made up of complex systems and processes that have allowed our species to flourish. Operating in the background, these structures impact our everyday experiences and are often taken for granted. Our talks will focus on identifying and navigating these complex systems and will explore and advocate for solutions to complex problems and challenges we face. The talks will represent a variety of fields and perspectives including technology, health, the arts, media, social sciences, the humanities, and the natural sciences. We invite you to join us for a day of inspiration and conversation as we discover what it means to be a citizen in this complex, global world Click here for more information

Naturally You is a collaboration among faculty, staff, and students to host community conversations about diversity in a way that celebrates, inspires, and uplifts natural hair and the community at large through self-love, service, and education.

All community members are invited to attend and celebrate their authentic self. 

The goal for this event is to initiate a dialogue within the Bobcat and greater San Marcos community—one that subsequently results in students, faculty, and staff challenging their previously formed assumptions and reshaping the ways of thinking—thus helping to strengthen the culture of inclusion and respect at Texas State. 
Are you a vendor interested in tabling at this event to showcase your products or resources? We're looking to partner with you for this community conversation. Please register to showcase your products, resources, or organization.

Join in for a special event!
Featuring a Q&A with Roberto Rios and Walley Films. Parking information HERE

About the artist: 

Born in 1941, Rios grew up in San Antonio. His love for art developed at his local public library where he read about art history and taught himself to paint by example. In his paintings, one finds references to the art seen in books, but in a fantastical style all his own. The first retrospective dedicated to this important artist, Mind Windows features work from his time as a founding member of Con Safo, a San Antonio-based group that helped to define the Chicano Art movement; through to his work as a well-known muralist and as a Medical Scientific Illustrator for publications produced by Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. Rios retired to pursue his faith—eventually becoming a Catholic Deacon in 2008—and continues to paint to this day.

Gesture is pervasive in communication, this “visible action as utterance” offers stand-alone meaning that are recognized within a culture, e.g., “I got my eyes on you sign, or bye bye sign, or surprise look, or sigh of exasperation.” Gesture accompanies speech, for instance we point to things we are referencing during speech, and we depict actions that we are describing-“the cat is this big” and we cup our hands as a measure of size. It also allows us to co-ordinate turns, taking among many other roles.

This course (ANTH 331F) focuses on gestures, what it is, how it is used, how it is studied, what role it plays in conversation, thinking, and information processing, and what its cultural variations and underpinning are? Dr. Agwuele welcomes visitors to this course to explore the Systems Thinking lens of communication and understanding the role it plays in society.

✯ About Starred Events
A few events each year are included in the Common Experience as part of annual or ongoing partnerships that are not necessarily related to the theme. These events are recognized as key opportunities for common experiences that build community; they are designated with a Texas State star in their titles.
