Event Image Naila and the Uprising
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM


Women have consistently been a part of influential social movements coming out of the Middle East, but time and again, the cameras focus on armed men, leaving us with a narrative that erases women from the struggle and obscures the nature and demands of the movement. Naila and the Uprising is a call to pay attention to those women leading from the grassroots, in real time and historically...

2nd Annual E. John and Cleo A. Rumpakis Lecture

“According to Hippocrates: A Medical Icon and the Ethics of Authority”

Dr. Eric Nelson
Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Classics, Pacific Lutheran University

Hippocrates of Cos (c. 460-380 BCE) has been an iconic doctor and a figure of authority in a wide variety of contexts for nearly 2300 years. When, how, and why did this well-known physician of the fifth century BCE, whose actual works, beliefs, and accomplishments have been a matter of doubt and debate since his time, become – and remain – the contested figure we still know even today as the “Father of Medicine” and namesake of the enduring “Hippocratic Oath”? Follow Hippocrates’ path from iatros to icon, and healer to hero, as we trace him through the ages as a figure of authority and archetypal ideal. Why has Hippocrates served as a locus of authority, and is it still – or was it ever – right to invest him with this role?
Dead City (Multi-Day Event)
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

Dead City by Sheila Callaghan. Samantha Blossom, a chipper woman in her 40s, wakes in her Upper East Side apartment one June morning to find her life being narrated over public radio. So begins this 90-minute comic drama — a hyper-theatrical riff on the novel Ulysses, occurring exactly 100 years to the day after Joyce’s jaunt through Dublin.
