Hogwarts vs. Zombies Night I

Hogwarts vs. Zombies: A Very Potter Apocalypse is essentially a gigantic game of tag. All players begin as perfectly human Hogwarts students, except for a few Original Zombies. The goal of the zombies is to turn everyone into zombies by tagging them. The goal of the humans is to stop the zombies by completing wizarding objectives across campus, using enchanted muggle weaponry such as Nerf blasters, "sock grenades", and other soft throwing projectiles unlocked over the course of the night to defend each other from the growing zombie horde. 

Players are strongly encouraged to bring a well-charged cell phone and Harry Potter-themed attire!

24-Hour Screening of Nuno Ramos’s 111 Vigília, Canto Leitura

Nuno Ramos’s 111 Vigília, Canto, Leitura (2016) commemorates the 1992 Carandiru Penitentiary massacre, one of the most severe human rights violations in modern Brazil that left 111 prisoners dead at the hands of military police. Conceived during a later resurgence of state-sanctioned violence in the country, Ramos’s vigil avoids the photographic sensationalism of dead bodies that dominated media coverage of the Carandiru tragedy. Instead, he honors the lives of the victims by staging a twenty-four-hour performance with artists, teachers, musicians, journalists, lawyers, and activists repeatedly stating the names of the deceased.

This screening is presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Matter of Photography in the Americas

The film will run for 24 hours straight from 2pm on Friday, April 27 to 2pm on Saturday, April 28. The exhibition and the auditorium will remain open during this time.

Blood in the Sand: Lives Lost in the fight for South Africa's Rhinos Exhibit

Rhino horn currently sells on the black market for double the price of gold for its rumored curative properties. While this skyrocketing demand has proven calamitous to the rhino population in South Africa, it has also come at a massive human cost. At least 500 poachers have been killed in poaching related conflicts over the past five years - a fact that has remained largely underreported. This photo exhibit shares the stories of humans who have been and continue to be impacted by rhino poaching, and hopes to help stop the war over the horn that is, like our fingernails, just a lump of keratin.

This exhibit was made possible thanks to special support from the Bingham Fund for Student Innovation in Human Biology. 

4/28 - Opening Reception, Wallenberg Hall
4/28-5/16 - Exhibit at Wallenberg Hall Lobby
5/18 onwards - Exhibit at Stanford HumBio Building 20
