2013 Backpack Project (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The Backpack Project is an annual school supply and toiletry drive for homeless youth in Salem. The donations will go to HOME Youth & Resource Center in downtown Salem. HOME is a shelter for homeless youth ages 13-17, and they provide many services to the youth that come to their house. The reason this project is called "The Backpack Project" is because the primary item that HOME needs is backpacks. The youth that HOME serves hold ALL of their possessions in their backpack so they get worn down very fast. HOME’s shelter holds a Christmas party for the youth where they handout the backpacks they raise, which are filled with basic hygiene essentials as well as warm winter clothing like a scarf or hat. During the holidays toiletries and school supplies are very important for the youth served by HOME and it would be a great gift to give youth the supplies to continue working towards their education. We are asking students and student organizations on campus to donate school supplies, toiletries and backpacks for this drive. We will be collecting them between now until December 6th on the second floor of the UC. Please consider donating and getting your friends and student organizations involved.

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 Representing Renaissance Queer Crips
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

My latest scholarship explores literature produced by the famous, seventeenth-century poet Andrew Marvell. Specifically, I am interested in a burgeoning theoretical disposition in English Renaissance studies, one that investigates the history and literary representations of disability. In my talk, I use a disability studies framework to show how Marvell’s poetry interprets and makes sense of human variation and bodily difference, from wounds to blindness to castration. I’ll discuss Marvell’s representations of castration, impotency, and non-normative, sexual physicality and then examine how those representations relate to Renaissance medical and cultural ideas about sexualized bodily difference. For example, Marvell’s poem “Upon a Eunuch” might be understood as a kind of disability narrative in which verse is imagined as an alternate means of sexual activity and impregnation; for Marvell, poems become prosthetic objects that enable the eunuch to procreate in ways “typical” able-bodied individuals often do. In examining Marvell’s meditation on poems as sexual prostheses, my argument also illuminates the useful intersections of sexuality/queer studies and early modern disability studies. Much has been said in the last decade or so about the productive reciprocity between queer and crip identities and theories, though predominately in a modern context: among other things, sexual minorities and people with disabilities share a history of injustice and activist resistance to the prejudicial demand that corporeal “defects” be normalized. This talk aims to open up new conversations around sexualized bodily difference and disability in modernity and, especially, in the context of 17th c England.

The practice of mindfulness refers to our efforts and discipline at being fully present in the now, of living in the present moment. Mindfulness practice nourishes an understanding of the interconnectedness of our lives with the larger world we inhabit, allowing us to develop an enhanced awareness of the present, a stillness that cultivates a mind of love, compassion, kindness and peace.

Beginners are most welcome!

November 21, 2013 subject: "ET vs. the Blob: What might aliens look like?" We've seen them portrayed in a vast variety of Hollywood films, from the nasty, slimy suckers shown in Independence Day to the precious, teddy-bear-esque creature that charmed us in E.T. But which is closer to the truth? As our understanding of the universe and our own planet grows, and, the outlook on our existence is in turn humbled, scientists are beginning to theorize what these extraterrestrials might look like. While opinions can certainly vary (we all have them, no doubt), scientists are forming theirs on the basis of environmental and biological clues rather than science fiction. David Altman Asst. Professor of Physics at Willamette University will share with you what science can tells us about what aliens might really look like.

2013 Backpack Project (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The Backpack Project is an annual school supply and toiletry drive for homeless youth in Salem. The donations will go to HOME Youth & Resource Center in downtown Salem. HOME is a shelter for homeless youth ages 13-17, and they provide many services to the youth that come to their house. The reason this project is called "The Backpack Project" is because the primary item that HOME needs is backpacks. The youth that HOME serves hold ALL of their possessions in their backpack so they get worn down very fast. HOME’s shelter holds a Christmas party for the youth where they handout the backpacks they raise, which are filled with basic hygiene essentials as well as warm winter clothing like a scarf or hat. During the holidays toiletries and school supplies are very important for the youth served by HOME and it would be a great gift to give youth the supplies to continue working towards their education. We are asking students and student organizations on campus to donate school supplies, toiletries and backpacks for this drive. We will be collecting them between now until December 6th on the second floor of the UC. Please consider donating and getting your friends and student organizations involved.

Dr. Carlos Bustamante Presents "Population Genetics In the Personal Genome Era"
1:50 PM - 2:50 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

Carlos Bustamante is a Professor of Genetics at Stanford University’s School of Medicine. Carlos received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard University. He was previously a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Oxford and a professor at Cornell University. In 2010, Carlos received the MacArthur Fellowship; often called the “Genius Grant,” the MacArthur Fellowship is awarded to individuals who "show exceptional merit and promise for continued and enhanced creative work." This month Carlos's work was recognized by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Carlos mines DNA sequence data for insights into the dynamics of populations and the mechanisms of evolution. In studies of humans, Carlos analyzes SNPs (sites of common variation in a DNA sequence) from many individuals to infer changes in human populations and their relationship to specific gene mutations. He has applied SNP-based methods to retrace the history of species’ domestication, both plants and animals. For example, investigations of Asian rice and dogs, have provided clues about where and how long ago humans domesticated these species. Carlos has also teased out higher-resolution reconstructions of human demographic and migration patterns using new data sets from ethnically and geographically diverse samples.
