1:00 PM Symposium: Anthropogeny: The Perspective From Africa "Anthropogeny: The Perspective from Africa" is the topic of a free public symposium hosted by the UCSD/Salk Center for Academic Research & Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA) on Friday, May 31st (1-5:30 PM Pacific), co-chaired by Berhane Asfaw (Rift Valley Research Service, Ethiopia) and Lyn Wadley (University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa).

Join us either in person or through live webcast. Free and open to the public, registration required.

Darwin and Huxley first predicted that we humans shared a common ancestor with the African great apes and it is now abundantly clear that Africa was the "cradle of humanity," with multiple waves of hominins arising on that continent and spreading across the old world, eventually being effectively displaced by our own species, which also arose in Africa.

As Svante Pääbo put it, "we are all Africans, either living in Africa or in recent exile from Africa." Given these facts, it is not surprising that the strong emphasis of anthropogeny is on the continent of Africa with studies ranging from genetic to paleontological to archaeological to primatological to climatological to sociocultural.

This CARTA symposium focuses on the contributions of scientists and scholars of anthropogeny who live and work in Africa.

Admission/Cost: FREE

7:00 PM Music: Los Texmaniacs Combine a hefty helping of Tex-Mex conjunto, simmer with several parts Texas rock, add a daring dash of well-cured blues and R&B riffs, and you've cooked up the tasty Texmaniacs groove. Founded by Max Baca in 1997, Los Texmaniacs combines the traditions of Tejano music with elements of blues, rock, country.

Max Baca is a legend on the bajo sexto, a twelve-string guitar-like instrument, which customarily provides the rhythm accompaniment for the button accordion in conjunto music. On accordion is Max's nephew Josh Baca, a third-generation accordionist whose style is a unique combination of conjunto, blues, and rock. Drummer and multi-instrumentalist Lorenzo Martínez incorporates Mexican and Chicano cultures as well as American grooves. Multi-instrumentalist Noel Hernández developed his skills as a performer deep in the heart of conjunto country in the Rio Grande Valley.

Like a great salsa, the Texmaniacs mix the simplest yet finest ingredients of Texas music to create a sound solidly rooted in tradition, exploding with contemporary vitality. They have performed at The Smithsonian Folklife Festival, International Accordion Festival, Kennedy Center and more. They received a GRAMMY award for "Border Y Bailes" in 2010.

Admission/Cost: $30 - $35

7:30 PM Performance: Paper Cities Paper Cities is a 60 minute multi-disciplinary performance narrated through puppetry, animated and original film, soundscapes, music and manipulated objects. It questions the logic by which humans have interpreted the idea of the city. It engages the previous century's history of urban development, transmogrifying commerce and politics into poetry, prosthetics and paper. It explores colonialism and how this has led to the exploitation of natural resources. Questioning the very act of puppetry as a performative medium, Paper Cities explores what stories are being told and asks who is manipulating whom.

Performed with puppets, animated objects, original film, and live soundscapes by Kristopher Apple. Directed by Liam Clancy.

Compulsively watchable and endlessly inventive." Gabe Greene- Director of New Play Development, La Jolla Playhouse
