Research Interests
Dr. Acioli's research interests are in the areas of theoretical (computational) condensed matter, atomic and molecular, and cluster physics. In particular I am interested in the study of electronic correlation in many-electron systems, the study of vibrations and rotations of molecules and the understanding of the electronic and magnetic properties of small systems such as nano-clusters. These investigations are done using ab-initio density functional theory and quantum Monte Carlo methods.

Background

Flutist Hideko Amano was born in Japan and came to the United States at the age of 12. She studied flute under Ms. Susan Levitin, and soon won many young artist competition awards. Her performance debut occurred in 1990 at Symphony Center, where she performed as a soloist for Chaminade’s Concertino for Flute and Orchestra.  

Ms. Amano earned a bachelor’s degree in music from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where she studied under the prominent flutist Ms. Paula Robison. She gave a joint performance with Ms. Robison in a concert series for the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. She continued her musical education in Paris, France, studying with Mathieu Dufour, who was the principal flutist for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. While studying in Paris, she also performed in many international Chamber Music Festivals and concerts in Italy, England, Israel and Morocco. She has continued her career as an active recitalist and has performed on the WFMT 98.7 Monday Evening Series and Dame Myra Hess Concert Series at Cultural Center. In 2018, she was invited to the International Flute Festival in Lima, Peru, as their guest artist to perform with the orchestra, giving recitals and masterclasses.

In addition to her performing career, Ms. Amano also maintains a growing private studio. Her students have won numerous competitions and studied at major universities. Ms. Amano was also an adjunct professor of flute at DePaul University. Currently she serves as an adjunct professor at Carthage College, Harper College and is an instructor at Midwest Young Artists.

Background

Theresa Amato is a public advocate. She currently serves as the executive director of Citizen Works, where she works to rebalance the power between corporations and citizens; and she is the founder and president of the Citizen Advocacy Center, which builds democracy for the 21st century. In both 2000 and 2004, Amato was the national presidential campaign manager and in-house counsel for Ralph Nader, producing the highest vote count for a third-party progressive candidate since 1924. Publishers Weekly termed Amato’s knowledge of election law “encyclopedic,” and the publisher of Ballot Access News called her book, Grand Illusion: The Myth of Voter Choice in a Two-Party Tyranny, the best book ever written on ballot access. Amato is a manager of Amato & Main, LLC, through which she advises nonprofits, foundations, and progressive candidates seeking office.

Research Interests
As a painter, I use animals and theatrical settings to explore different aspects of human relationships with both gravity and levity. Many of my current paintings address the difficulties of loss, and the resulting tension, conflict and reinvention through which our relationships must go. Inspired by both real life and my experiences in live theater, my cast of anthropomorphic creatures experiences moments of absurdity and awkwardness, as well as tenderness and consolation. I am particularly drawn to the juxtaposition of love and loss, and the relationship of comedy and tragedy.

Background

In my work I investigate the connection between language and society from various aspects. As language is an intrinsic part of our lives, language and society are tightly interconnected. Our language use and our attitudes towards different language varieties, whether we look at dialects of the same language, or different languages, reflect power dynamics connected to social class, gender, ethnicity, age, and beyond. I am interested in how minority languages and dialects are affected by more prestigious dominant languages, and I pay special attention to the factors that lead to successful language maintenance. I enjoy doing fieldwork, talking to minority language speakers, learning more about their connection to their mother tongue, and collecting data through interviews.

I also enjoy bringing some of the techniques I use in the field to my classroom and showing students how to conduct linguistic research by investigating the language used around them. The most rewarding part of my teaching is being able to systematically show students that all languages are equally valid. Through this, I hope to empower my students to embrace their own language variety and the linguistic diversity that is part of our society.
