A direct measurement of ionizing Lyman-continuum radiation escaping from galaxies is not possible at the epoch of reionization, due to the high optical depth of the IGM, and therefore observations of this process at slightly lower redshift are crucial for understanding what happens at z>6. For the past several years, we have been attempting direct imaging and spectroscopic observations of escaping ionizing radiation at z~3, using both ground-based and HST data. These observations have uncovered many possible sources of Lyman continuum radiation, but also reveal the challenges associated with low-redshift contamination. We highlight the current state of the field and promising upcoming methods for determining f_esc, the escape fraction of ionizing radiation.

Navigating the academic environment can be stressful. Power dynamics can impact our ability to communicate clearly with each other, and can generate feelings of impostor syndrome. In this interactive workshop, we will use techniques of improvisation and changing power dynamics to explore ways we can shape our communication environment. The session will include a short presentation, followed by a group discussion and an interactive component with improvisation exercises. It is open to people of all academic stages who are keen to think about these topics in new ways, and to try new techniques to help make our work environment a more comfortable space. Date: Friday, July 9th, 10:00am – 12:00pm PDT via Zoom Please register by Wednesday, July 7th. This workshop is free!
