Strange and Wonderful: American Folk Art from the Willem and Diane Volkersz Collection

Willem and Diane Volkersz of Bozeman, Montana have collected folk and outsider art since the mid-1970s, amassing an extensive collection over the past 40 years. Organized by director John Olbrantz under the guidance of the Volkersz’, this exhibition features 108 objects by 32 artists that reflect the breadth and scope of this remarkable collection. Included in the exhibition are paintings, sculptures, drawings, ceramics, textiles, and mixed media works by self-taught and outsider artists such as the Rev.

Event Image Rhetoric and Radical Politics: Sexuality, Race, and the Fourteenth Amendment
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall
*WU Campus

Peter Odell Campbell 
Assistant Professor, English 
University of Pittsburgh 

In this talk, Campbell will discuss U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s development and application of a peculiarly “substantive” form of Fourteenth Amendment rhetoric. Kennedy is perhaps best known for his opinions in the recent same-sex marriage cases, United States v. Windsor and Obergefell v. Hodges. “Rhetoric and Radical Politics” looks instead to Kennedy’s opinions about public school desegregation and affirmative action policies in Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1 and Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin. Reading these opinions together with the Justice’s due process and equal protection arguments in two earlier cases about lesbian and gay civil rights, Campbell will explore some ways in which Kennedy’s recent articulations of lesbian and gay relational freedom constitute, but may also erase future possibilities for U.S. judicial recognition of presently excluded forms of queer of color subjectivity.

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Boren Scholarships and Fellowships provide unique funding opportunities for U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests, and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. As NSEP initiatives, the Boren Awards focus on countries, languages, and fields critical to U.S. national security, recognizing a broad definition that includes traditional concerns of protecting American well-being, as well as challenges of global society, such as sustainable development, environmental issues, disease, migration, and economic competitiveness. For more info see the website: Jeffrey Cary, Program Outreach manager for the Boren Awards program of the Institute for International Education, will be visiting campus on Thursday, Nov. 3, to share information about the program and to discuss the program with potential applicants. He will be in the World Languages Studio on the first floor of Ford Hall between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. All are welcome!
