A STORY OF LOVE, FAMILY AND FREEDOM

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...

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM “According to Hippocrates: A Medical Icon and the Ethics of Authority”
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?
7:30 PM Dead City (Multi-Day Event)

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Faculty Colloquium: Stephen Patterson
Presenter: Stephen Patterson, George H. Atkinson Professor of Religious and Ethical Studies
Title: Here Come the Androgynes, Again!

Abstract:
Some may recall Steve Patterson’s first installment on androgyny in early Christianity–where the androgyne symbolized love. Now the second installment: androgyny also symbolized power. Masculine sexuality in the ancient world was all about masculine power. Virility and power are still linked in the construction of masculinity today. But what if a woman could have male power? Believe it or not, early Christians were toying with the idea… and he’s got (more) pictures! This material is part of Patterson’s new book, The Forgotten Creed (OUP), due out on October 1.

Students are welcome and coffee and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there.

5:30 PM - 6:00 PM "Sanctuary State" Anti-profiling feat. Rocky Barilla - Diversity Speaker Series
Former Representative Rocky Barilla speaks about his role in passing the anti-profiling "Sanctuary State" legislation in 1987 with   overwhelming bipartisan support. Measure 105 seeks to repeal this law. Come hear the historical perspective!

The members of the Latinx Law Student Association at Willamette University College of Law are honored to welcome Representative Rocky Barilla to the Dean Daniel P. Santos Diversity Speaker Series. This very special guest will present in Room 201 of the Willamette University College of Law Campus on Thursday, October 11th, 2018 at5:30 p.m.  The event is free to attend, and will be followed by a reception featuring hors d'oeuvres and refreshments in Rick’s Cafe.

In 1986, Rocky Barilla became the first Latino elected to the Oregon Legislature, where he introduced, and played an integral role in passing, the "Sanctuary State" legislation.  The bill passed the Oregon Senate and House easily: 29 to 1 and 58 to 1, respectively, and was signed into law on July 7, 1987. The "Sanctuary" law enables local law enforcement officers to focus on keeping communities safe, rather than enforcing federal immigration policy.  Ballot Measure 105, which will be on Oregonvoters’ ballots this November, threatens to repeal this law. Rocky will present the historical perspective on how this became Oregon law, and what Oregonians can do now.

The Daniel P. Santos Diversity Speaker Series is the signature event of the Latinx Law Student Association at Willamette University College of Law. Each talk  brings a diverse leader from the community to meet Willamette students and provide a space for dialogue between students from diverse or marginalized communities, and the larger Willamette Community. The series engages diverse leaders in conversation with students regarding their experiences in the legal field and beyond. Last Spring, the speaker series welcomed all five women justices of the Oregon Supreme Court to campus as guest panelists to discuss the current makeup of the Oregon Supreme Court.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM DEAD CITY, by Sheila Callaghan
Willamette Theatre's first production of the 2018-19 is a high-energy, relentless travelogue through a full day and night in the confusing, impacting, and always fascinating world of New York City.

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 her adventure through the hidden corners of the horror and the wonder we call New York City, a journey that Samatha finds both confusing and inspiring. This 90-minute comic drama — a hyper-theatrical riff on the novel Ulysses — takes place exactly 100 years to the day after Joyce’s jaunt through Dublin.

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM Lecture | University Museums: Doors That Open Both Ways
University Museums: Doors that Open Both Ways
James Cuno
President and chief executive officer of the J. Paul Getty Trust in Los Angeles

Many university museums are built on the edges of campuses. This is not because they are not central to teaching and research, but because they simultaneously open into the campus and onto the community. This is true, for example, of the museums at Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Oberlin, and UCLA, as it is of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. On the occasion of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art’s twentieth anniversary this fall, and in recognition of its extraordinary success as both Willamette University and Salem’s museum of art, James Cuno will examine the physical and institutional structures that distinguish university museums from all others.

Cuno’s lecture is also timed to coincide with the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's annual Member Appreciation Reception, scheduled for the Maribeth Collins Lobby on October 11 from 5-7 pm.

James Cuno ’73 received his BA degree in history from Willamette University, his MA degree in art history from the University of Oregon, and his MA and PhD degrees in fine arts from Harvard University. He served as director of the Grunwald Center of Graphic Arts at UCLA, Dartmouth University’s Hood Museum of Art, and the Harvard University Art Museums; director and professor of the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London; president and director of the Art Institute of Chicago; and mostly recently, president and CEO of the J. Paul Getty Trust. He has lectured and written widely on museums and cultural and public policy and serves on the Board of Trustees of the Courtauld Institute of Art and Willamette University, among others.

Presenter: Caroline Davidson, Associate Professor of Law Title: Nunca Mas Meets #NiUnaMenos — The Path to Justice for Victims of Sexual Violence Under Pinochet

Title: Nunca Mas Meets #NiUnaMenos — The Path to Justice for Victims of Sexual Violence Under Pinochet

Please join us on Friday, October 12th, at 3 p.m. in the Carnegie Building for our fifth Faculty Colloquium of this semester.

 

Abstract:

International criminal courts have voiced a commitment to fighting gender-based and sexual violence. Although the ICC has been roundly criticized for its Appeals Chamber’s reversal of the court’s first conviction for sexual violence, the ICC prosecutor has made prosecution of these crimes a top priority. The ad hoc tribunals1 and other internationalized courts likewise made significant strides in acknowledging and punishing sexual violence and raising awareness of the gendered dimensions of violence.

The attention given sexual violence and gender in the international courts however is not necessarily indicative of the attention given it in domestic trials of international crimes. This article examines one example of this disconnect—the Chilean human rights trials for dictatorship-era violence. At the very same time that the ad hoc tribunals and the ICC revived the field of international criminal law, Chilean courts have seen a massive wave of cases for dictatorship-era violence, with some 150 cases adjudicated and some 1500 former officials facing charges. Unlike in the international system, however, sexual and gender violence have been largely ignored in these cases. To date, though sexual violence occasionally has been mentioned in passing in a judgment, there has not been a single conviction based on rape as a crime against humanity or torture. Recently though, Chilean courts have begun investigating cases centering on sexual violence.

Location: Carnegie 213 - Hearing Room

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Reception and Artist Talk with Anne Magratten
In her exhibition, Levitate, Anne Magratten presents two groups of paintings that explore how sexuality, gender, or class can provoke a supreme form of avoidance. In her series of still life paintings How Queer, Dear, she toys with visual conundrums specific to modern sexuality, gender, and queer identity. Employing humor and formalism she cloaks the taboo in the boring. In Insulation, she groups small observational paintings on cardboard questioning how materials, perspective, gender, and class shapes the value of art objects. Anne Magratten is a graduate of Mills College and received her MFA in Studio Art at The University of Oregon in 2015. She is an Instructor of Painting and Drawing at Linn Benton Community College. Additionally, she offers college Drawing courses within Oregon prisons. She is a member of the Eugene based artist collective Tropical Contemporary. Additional aspects of her art practice can be seen on her website http://www.annemagratten.com and the website of the collective https://www.tropicalcontemporary.space.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM DEAD CITY, by Sheila Callaghan
Willamette Theatre's first production of the 2018-19 is a high-energy, relentless travelogue through a full day and night in the confusing, impacting, and always fascinating world of New York City.

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 her adventure through the hidden corners of the horror and the wonder we call New York City, a journey that Samatha finds both confusing and inspiring. This 90-minute comic drama — a hyper-theatrical riff on the novel Ulysses — takes place exactly 100 years to the day after Joyce’s jaunt through Dublin.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM "Were Bronze Age Anatolian Sun-goddesses the Ancestors of Hecate?"
Mary Bachvarova
Professor, Dept. of Classical Studies, Willamette University

In Classical and Hellenistic Greece Hecate was renowned as a witch and moon goddess, but her origins remain a mystery, especially since her earliest mentions in literature and archaeological finds seem to describe a very different personality: a city goddess of Miletus, amenable to prayer (Hesiod's Theogony), and a maidenly helper of Demeter (Homeric Hymn to Demeter). I delve into possible parallels with Bronze Age goddesses in Anatolia, using Hittite narratives, prayers, and magical incantations performed by "Old Women" that mention the Sun-goddess of the Earth and the Sun-goddess of the holy city Arinna to explain both the prehistory of her seemingly anomalous characterization in the Archaic period, and how she morphed into the witch goddess of later times.
