A Public Exhibition of the Bamboo Musical Instruments from Yunnan, China (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Introduction to the Exhibition on the Bamboo Musical Instruments from Yunnan, China: Bamboo was one of the eight types of materials for musical instruments in China over three thousand years ago. Bamboo musical instruments have been essential not only to the elite music, but also to the folk music in China. In the ethnically diverse Southwestern region in Yunnan, China, bamboo musical instruments are also historically and culturally associated with different ethnic groups. This exhibition displays the diverse creativity in making bamboo musical instruments in Yunnan, and demonstrates the continuity of the local culture in this global age.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.

Event Image Dynamics and Problems of Using Games to Teach
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

This presentation will argue for the usefulness of games as an educational device. We begin by discussing the nature of games and describing the student’s “game experience” in the classroom. Then we will make some assertions about how the game experience might be expected to contribute to the learning process - including the leveraging of scholastic motivations that games may offer on the basis of social and phenomenological factors. The features and properties of a specific form of game, which may be most useful in the classroom, called the “Fully Human Interactive Game,” are surveyed. We conclude with a discussion of some of the problems which may accompany using games to teach.
A Public Concert of the Traditional Chinese Music
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

The history of Chinese music is as long and diverse as other aspects of Chinese culture. From the earliest folkish clay-vessel-flute xun to the highly ethical seven-string qin, from the indigenous bamboo flutes from Yunnan to the borrowed two-string “Chinese violin” erhu through the Silk Road, traditional Chinese music represents an integrated cultural entity that is thriving in modern times. The featured traditional instruments in this concert are the qin (or guqin, Chinese lute), zheng zither, erhu, and a few other instruments. While the musicians are based in Portland area, this concert will also include a live performance, via Internet, by a troupe from Yunnan led by Mr. Su Xing, who has made some of the instruments in the Exhibition.
