    100, West Science
    11:10 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.
    Prof. Hans Hassell of the Department of Politics will speak. Campaigns are largely considered to be candidate-centered affairs. Using a simple measure of party support I show that candidates who are less connected to the party are less likely to win and also less likely to remain a candidate in the primary. I find that parties are effective not only in helping candidates win but also are effective in shaping the options presented to primary voters. Scholarship on candidate emergence has largely ignored the influence of political parties in primaries and their ability to affect the decisions of candidates to compete for the party’s nomination.

  • Theatre Production: Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition": An adaptation told through puppetry
    Plumb-Fleming Black Box Theatre, Armstrong Hall
    7:30 p.m.
    "Pictures at an Exhibition": An adaptation told through puppetry, movement, and music. A collaboration between the Cornell Theatre Department and NYC's Puppet Kitchen. Composition by Modest Mussorgsky. Directed by Guest Artist Emily DeCola. The Cornell Theatre faculty and students will work with the award-winning Puppet Kitchen throughout the spring of 2015 in the creating and performing of this adaptation and expression of Modest Mussorgsky's composition "Pictures at an Exhibition," which was inspired by the paintings of architect and artist Viktor Hartmann. Mussorgsky described the piece as "seething," saying, "Sounds and ideas hang in the air, I am gulping and overeating, and can barely manage to scribble them on paper." Mussorgsky and Hartmann's vibrant journey will come to life in this theatrical event and artistic collaboration between students and professional artists where movement, music, and puppetry are brought together for an extraordinary experience of story-telling. The show runs April 24, 25 and May 1, 2 at 7:30 p.m. and April 26 at 2 p.m. in Kimmel Theatre. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $7 for seniors/students/youth. Free for faculty, staff, and students.
