1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

Event Image Frost History Lecture
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

Some Historical Lessons from the Transpacific Western: Clint Eastwood and Lee Sang-il Lecture by Takashi Fujitani, Professor of History and Dr. David Chu Chair in Asian-Pacific Studies at the Univeristy of Toronto In this presentation Prof. Fujitani reads Clint Eastwood’s critically acclaimed Unforgiven (1992) against Lee Sang-il’s “remake” of the original (Yurusarezaru mono, 2013). While the few Anglophone critics who have reviewed Lee’s version have generally treated it as a competent but fairly unremarkable copy of the original, Fujitani argues that the film, set in Hokkaidō, is in many ways a far more radical and challenging exploration of key themes taken up by Eastwood that are of interest for those who study the past and its effects in the present. These include violence, law, the outlaw, sovereign power, the right to kill, and historical memory and accountability. At the same time, Lee takes up several issues that Eastwood simply leaves as background to his story -- in particular race, indigeneity, and settler colonialism. While the Western has been a staple genre in Eastwood’s long career leading up to Unforgiven, Yurusarezaru mono is the first and so far only Western made by the much younger Lee. Lee’s first film, Chong (1998, 2001), is in part based upon his own life growing up as an ethnic Korean in Japan. His more well-known films include Hula Girl (2006), The Villain (Akunin, 2010), and Rage (Ikari, 2016).

Director of Archaeological Research
UO Museum of Natural & Cultural History & State Museum of Anthropology
University of Oregon

Some of the largest, most ancient, and diverse collections of fiber artifacts in the world are from the northern and western Great Basin of North America. Many of these materials—including basketry, netting, and woven sandals—were collected under poorly controlled conditions during the early 20th century. Thanks to advances in radiocarbon dating, it is now possible to produce highly accurate ages using minute samples that don’t damage the overall integrity of the dated specimens. The results of ongoing dating efforts confirm that these North American collections include some of the world’s oldest fiber artifacts, provide the means to place items in their proper chronological context, and give us clearer occupation histories for the sites from which they were recovered.

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Putnam University Center

Please join us Friday, October 6 at 3 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge for our fourth Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Treats will be provided. Presenter: Nathan Sivers Boyce, Associate Professor of Economics Title: Economics Curricular Reform at Willamette University In August 2014 Willamette University began offering a new economics curriculum. The purpose of this paper is to describe it in more detail and explain our rationale for adopting it. Key changes include commitments to: begin with economic issues that motivate questions for analysis; incorporate the history of economic thought in a systematic way and embrace explicit pluralism. We argue that designing an explicitly pluralist curriculum requires determining how to organize economic thought, how to structure the curriculum to embed pluralism, and how to embody pluralism in the core courses. Our approach to pluralism organizes economic thought according to a “grand traditions” approach and is fully integrated into the curriculum, developing multiple perspectives side-by-side in each course. We argue that these reforms will help us better prepare students for independent, critical inquiry into economic issues. Students are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea 
July 29 - October 22, 2017
Study Gallery

Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and is home to a rich and diverse artistic tradition that includes sculpture, masks, dance ornaments, bark cloth, utensils, and vessels. Many of these objects are used ritualistically in great feasts, exchanges, and dance performances to capture and maintain spiritual power.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea features a number of objects collected by anthropologist David Eisler in Papua New Guinea in the early 1970s and gifted by him to the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in 2014. 

As a special feature, Eisler will give an illustrated lecture on the concept of spiritual power in the art and culture of Papua New Guinea on September 7. Admission to the lecture is complimentary.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

Family Weekend Presents: The Second City's Game Night!

What happens when Chicago’s best improvisers are tossed head first into a medley of classic game shows? Come laugh your way through Second City’s Game Night and find out! From celebrity-guessing to fill-in-the-blankety-blanks, charades to feuding families to improvised commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? Get on stage and change the game! Audiences participate at every turn, taking the show a different direction each night as the whip-smart cast toes the line between absurdity and genius in a way that only game shows and improv can achieve.

This performance consists of two 90-minute acts with a brief intermission. This show is intended for mature audiences.

Deciphering a Treasure of the Silk Road: Complexity as the Key in Identification of the Ordos Seals
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Andrea J. Chen, Research Fellow, University Museum and Art Gallery
University of Hong Kong

The Mongolian Nestorians were a mysterious group of people who embraced Christianity under the influence of the Church of the East, as it was disseminated along the Silk Road. Notwithstanding the fact that their material tradition is highly valued as representative of the Silk Road material history, the study of this subject has remained relatively stagnant, because artefacts in this category have been considered insufficient. Yet there are thousands of so-called Nestorian Crosses (or Nestorian Seals) existing globally, waiting for systematic identification and interpretation. Thus, the current concern would be: 1) Do all these artefacts belong to the authentic cultural heritage of Mongolian Nestorians? 2) Can we find any existing study of Mongolian Nestorianism, or Jingjiao (Chinese Nestorianism), to support the identification? And 3) if some of them are proved to be pertinent, would this discovery benefit, and in what way, the hitherto under-developed study of this field?

This lecture, based on the above notes, will firstly provide a comprehensive introduction to Mongolian Nestorianism, Jingjiao, and their material culture. Secondly, it will screen some representative samples from the Nixon collection of the so-called Nestorian Seals, which is the largest collection of this kind in the world. With these samples, it will introduce laboratory results from recently conducted XRF examinations, as the most important archaeological evidence showing that the complexity of the collection should not be underestimated. On the contrary, it could be critical to the identification of the objects. And last but not least, this lecture will suggest for the first time, a new name for the bronzes, as “Ordos Seals” and give reasons for the naming.

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities.

*WU Campus - Fine Arts West

Please join us Friday, October 13 at 3 p.m. in Fine Arts West 145 for our fifth Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Treats will be provided. Presenter: Marva Duerksen, Associate Professor of Music Title: Proleptic Rhetoric and Survival of the “Self”: Composer Niccoló Castiglioni On Dickinson’s “I heard a Fly buzz—” In “I heard a fly buzz – when I died,” poet Emily Dickinson adopts a proleptic, or anticipatory, rhetorical stance from which to probe haunting questions of death and the boundaries separating death from life. The poem’s speaker, an implicit self, dies, and yet, impossibly, survives to narrate the story of their death. In this presentation I examine Italian composer Niccoló Castiglioni’s interpretation of Dickinson’s “Fly,” focusing on ways in which the composer builds on Dickinson’s poetic design to craft a musical self, position that self within a musical space, and support or engineer its demise. Broadening the inquiry, I consider the stakes for poet and composer. If proleptic positioning supports an enduring poetic self, might it not also point to Dickinson’s desire for survival beyond death of her own creative self? And, as composers take up this proleptic self musically, could they be engaging ongoing anxieties about the survival of our own artistic and embodied selves?

Event Image Grace Goudy Distinguished Artist Series: Master Class for Voice
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus
*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Julianne Baird, soprano will give a master classes for Willamette University voice students on Tuesday, October 17th, 2:00pm on the stage of Hudson Hall.  Admission is free and all are welcome to attend and observe.

Through her “Songbook,” Jane Austen springs to life: her likes and dislikes, her boisterous sense of humor, her passions and her true nature. The Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series is proud to open its 2017-18 season with Julianne Baird, a soprano the New York Times has hailed as a “national artistic treasure,” returning for the third time in a collaboration with fortepianist Marcia Hadjimarkos. Together, they will present a completely unique program at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18.

By 1770, the fortepiano had to a large degree replaced the harpsichord, and Austen, as part of the education expected of that generation of young women, had acquired more than a passing knowledge of music and contemporary composition. Her insights, tastes and interests were reflected in what we might today refer to as a “mixtape,” an anthology of one’s favorite compositions for a friend. This is Austen’s “Songbook.” Baird and Hadjimarkos have created a superb and imaginative program of musical works, along with readings from Austen’s novels, in order to bring her favorite music, and thus her spirit, back to life.

Hadjimarkos is performing on an instrument, the fortepiano, whose new dynamic range and subtlety of response can be seen as a metaphor joining the worlds of music and literature. Her playing is described in Diapason: “Beyond the wondrous sensitivity of her touch, two elements stand out: Her very flexible approach to rhythm and her witty, sometimes daringly profuse and yet always-idiomatic ornamentation. In short, this is the most satisfying playing of Mozart I have heard in a long time.”

Baird was described by the Washington Post as having “exquisite instrument which she uses with the intelligence of a scholar … the best voice of any living musicologist.” She is also an accomplished teacher who regularly gives master classes at Yale, Juilliard and Oberlin.

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

Event Image Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series: Julianne Baird, soprano; Marcia Hadjimarkos, fortepiano
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

The Jane Austen Songbook

Through her "SONGBOOK" Jane Austen herself springs to life: her special likes and dislikes, her boisterous sense of humor, her passions, and her true nature is revealed. The Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series is proud to begin its 2017-2018 season Wednesday night, October 18th, 7:30 pm, with Julianne Baird, a soprano the New York Times has hailed as a "national artistic treasure" returning for the 3rd time in a collaboration with forte pianist Marcia Hadjimarkos. Together they present a completely unique program.

By 1770 the fortepiano had, to a large degree replaced the harpsichord, and Jane Austen as part of the education expected of that generation of young women, acquired considerably more than a passing knowledge of music and to the making of a "mix tape"- an anthology of one's favorite compositions for a friend. This is Austen's "Songbook"; Soprano Julianne Baird, and Marcia Hadjimarkos have created a superb and imaginative program of musical works, along with readings from Austen's novels in order to bring her favorite music and thus her spirit back to life.

We are fortunate to invite back to Willamette these superlative artists. Marcia Hadjimarkos is performing on an instrument, the fortepiano, whose new dynamic range and subtlety of response can be seen as a metaphor joining the worlds of music and literature. Her playing is described in Diapason; "Beyond the wondrous sensitivity of her touch, two elements stand out: her very flexible approach to rhythm, and her witty, sometimes daringly profuse and yet always idiomatic ornamentation. In short this is the most satisfying playing of Mozart I have heard in a long time."

Julianne Baird, whom the Washington Post describes as having "exquisite instrument which she uses with the intelligence of a scholar... the best voice of any living musicologist," and Marcia Hadjimarkos will also present, as part of their residency, a master-class for singers Tuesday October 17th at 2:00 pm on the stage of Hudson Hall at Willamette University. Admission is free for the master-class. Julianne Baird is also a supremely accomplished teacher who regularly gives master-classes at Yale, Juilliard, and Oberlin.

The season concludes Feb. 23 with a solo recital by one of Oregon's most beloved musicians and one of the world's great pianists, Jeffrey Kahane.

*WU Campus - Ford Hall
*WU Campus

From the well-publicized events at San Francisco State in 1968 to the image of black students with guns emerging from the takeover of the student union at Cornell University in April, 1969, the struggle for a more relevant and meaningful education, including demands for black and ethnic studies programs, became a clarion call across the country in the late 1960's. Through the stories of these young men and women who were at the forefront of these efforts, Agents of Change examines the untold story of the racial conditions on college campuses and in the country that led to these protests. The film’s characters were caught at the crossroads of the civil rights, black power, and anti-Vietnam war movements at a pivotal time in America’s history. Today, over 45 years later, many of the same demands are surfacing in campus protests across the country, revealing how much work remains to be done.

"Wonderwerk Cave: Archaeology at the Edge of the Kalahari"
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

AIA Lecture Series

Michael Chazan
Professor, Department of Anthropology
Director, Archaeology Center
University of Toronto

The town of Kuruman or Ga-Sagonyana is at the edge of the Kalahari in the Northern Cape Province.  The archaeology of this region is an extraordinarily rich record of human presence over a period of two million years.  The lecturer will present the experience of working in this fascinating part of the world and the results of research at the site of Wonderwerk Cave where he co-directs a project that has documented the earliest known evidence of cave occupation by human ancestors.  This talk will give a sense of what it is like to do archaeology in a society experiencing dramatic social change, as South Africa experiences the transformation from apartheid.  At the same time the current state of research—what we have learned and what we are still struggling to understand—will be presented for Wonderwerk and also for the neighboring sites of Kathu Pan and Canteen Kopje.

Please join us Friday, October 27 at 3 p.m. in the Hatfield Room for our sixth Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Treats will be provided. Presenter: Gaetano DeLeonibus, Professor of French and Francophone Studies Title: "Digitizing André Breton's 17th-Century Carib-French Dictionary" I attended a week-long intensive workshop (June 5-9, 2017), “Text Encoding Fundamentals and their Application,” an introduction to the theory and practice of encoding texts for the humanities. More specifically, the workshop introduced the non-initiate to the philosophy, theory, and practicalities of encoding original texts in XML (Extensible Markup Language) using the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines. During the workshop, I began to encode several pages of a 17th-century Carib-French dictionary with the XML Editor Oxygen. This presentation will first give an overview of Breton’s dictionary, then delve into my experience at the workshop, and describe the use I’ve been making of the text and project in FREN 336. Students are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there. Ellen Eisenberg and Bill Kelm Faculty Colloquium Coordinators
