Event Image Exhibition | "Roger Shimomura: Works on Paper" | Nov. 8 - Feb. 1
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Throughout his long and distinguished career, Seattle native and Lawrence, Kansas-based artist Roger Shimomura has made prints in a style inspired by his childhood interest in comic books and the traditions of American pop art and Japanese woodcut prints. Born in 1939, Shimomura spent part of his childhood, during WWII, in an internment camp in Idaho and his subsequent work as an artist explores the unique position of being seen as an outsider in one's own country.

Roger Shimomura: Works on Paper has been organized by Director John Olbrantz to complement Roger Shimomura: An American Knockoff, which opens January 17, 2015, in the Melvin Henderson-Rubio Gallery. 

Roger Shimomura: Works on Paper
 features 29 prints drawn from local and regional collections, including works from his Minidoka Snapshots and Mistaken Identity series, both of which deal with internment camp issues.

Imbolc


Imbolc (also called Imbolg or Candlemas) is one of the four major holidays of Wicca. Imbolc marks the growth of the God into a strong boy as the days grow longer and the sun gets stronger. It also marks the recovery of the Goddess from giving birth to the God. It is a time of initiation, a beginning, as seeds begin to wake from their winter sleep. Traditionally many initiation rituals and self-dedication rituals are held at this time.

Capitalism and Slavery: Not an Accidental Connection

The story of capitalism's origins is a story about our origins.  In his controversial new book, Cornell historian Ed Baptist argues that slavery in the United States was much more deeply connected to the origins of American capitalism than we like to think.  He will talk about how and why he came to research this connection, and it's human consequences.

Return from Abroad Retreat (Multi-Day Event)
4:00 PM

Off Campus

Coming home from an off-campus study program or doing research in another country often means struggling to get back into the swing of things. Adjustments to lifestyle, return to academic rigor and change can be challenging. The (free) Return from Abroad Retreat was established to help WU students through transitions like this - making meaning of their experiences, helping them place their abroad experiences in the context of their lives back home, and helping them learn what they have to teach each student about him/herself. The goal of this retreat is engaging together with good food, good company, and a relaxing time away from the busy pace of WU life.  Willamette students returning from off-campus study/research programs will help each other process and reflect on their abroad experience and what it means for each of them (the off-campus study/research program does not have to be one sponsored by WU).

The Legacy of Heart Mountain explores the legacy of incarcerating thousands of Japanese Americans at the Heart Mountain concentration camp in Wyoming during World War II. At the heart of the film are striking photographs taken between 1943-1945 from inside the Heart Mountain camp by George and Frank C. Hirahara.

While incarcerated at Heart Mountain, George and his son Frank – both avid photographers – captured images of camp life and special family milestones, such as engagement celebrations, weddings, and family portraits. The Hiraharas were part of a 1,000 person contingent from the Yakima Valley in Washington, who were sent to Heart Mountain.
This performance is offered in conjunction with the Roger Shimomura: An American Knockoff exhibition at the Hallie Ford Museum of and Willamette University’s Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration: 2015.

Financial support for this event has been provided by grants from the City of Salem's Transient Occupancy Tax funds and the Oregon Arts Commission, with additional funding provided by the Willamette University Office of Multicultural Affairs.

Faculty Recital Series: Orebonians Trombone Quartet
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Featuring Orebonians Trombone Quartet Recital.

With its clear sound and timbral versatility, the trombone lends itself to chamber music-making like few other instruments. Particularly when performed in ensemble, trombones have a distinctive vocal quality giving them the capacity to achieve a profound expressiveness and sublimity.  Additionally, due to the instrument’s design for power and directness, a trombone ensemble can equally evoke the heroic, the tragic, the terrible, . . . and of course, the ridiculous.

Orebonians is a trombone quartet comprised of four of the region’s most distinguished trombonists and collegiate educators.  One of Portland’s foremost jazz/classical cross-over musicians, Lars Campbell appears regularly with the Oregon Symphony and Ballet Theater, and has recorded with Pink Martini and co-founded the Portland Jazz Orchestra.  Lars is on faculty with Clackamas Community College where he teaches trombone and directs multiple ensembles.  Henry Henniger performs throughout the region as a soloist and chamber musician and is currently principal trombonist of the Eugene Symphony, Portland Opera, and Oregon Ballet Theater.  Henry is the Assistant Professor of Trombone at University of Oregon.  Carson Keeble has held membership in the Colorado Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, and New Mexico Symphony, and continues to perform frequently as a guest with organizations throughout the country.  Carson is currently the low brass instructor at Willamette University and the trombone instructor at Oregon State University.  Charles Reneau is the current Bass Trombonist for the Oregon Symphony Orchestra and was previously the Bass Trombonist in the Honolulu Symphony. Charles is a trombone instructor at Portland State University.

They will perform works by G. F. Handel, Johann Strauss, Joey Sellers, Frigyes Hidas, and others.

This concert is free of charge, however donations to the Music Scholarship program would be welcome. Suggested donation: $8/adults, $5/students.  For further information contact the Willamette University Music Department at 503-370-6255, music-info@willamette.edu.

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Professor Karen Arabas, Professor, Geology & Environmental Science, will speak about Ecological Restoration at Willamette University’s Zena Forest. Willamette University's Zena Forest is part of the largest remaining contiguous block of forested land in the Eola Hills of the central Willamette Valley, where Euro-American agriculture, urban and forestry activities have reduced the area of original oak habitat significantly. The long-term restoration goal at the property is to enhance the fundamentally interrelated and collective function of upland oak habitat at the watershed scale within the context of our conservation easement as well as our educational mission. To that end we initiated habitat restoration activities on 130 acres of upland oak woodland and prairie habitat in 2009. In this talk she will discuss preliminary impacts of our restoration treatments. Additionally, she will summarize the work of a number of Willamette University students, whose research at broader scales has advanced our understanding of past climate and human impacts on the landscape.

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Myra Albert Wiggins (1869-1956) was a Salem photographer and early member of Alfred Stieglitz’s Photo-Secessionist Group.

Born and raised in Salem, Oregon, Wiggins was a painter, poet and singer, as well as an instructor, essayist and speaker on art topics.

Event Image Lecture | Myra Albert Wiggins: A Photographer's Life
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Join Carole Glauber, the author of "Myra Wiggins: The Witch of Kodakery," as she explores Wiggins's fascinating life and remarkable accomplishments from her early days in Salem to her international photographic celebrity to her triumph as a painter.

Photographer and painter, Myra Albert Wiggins remembered her Salem childhood as the wild, free tomboy life of a Western Oregon small town girl. She claimed "no boy or man in my hometown could beat me at running." Throughout her long life, Wiggins's talent, energy, ambition and independence shaped her artistic prominence as it emerged across America and Europe. When she approached her 84th birthday, a nephew suggested "Myra has done everything in her life but jump off the Eiffel Tower and she could probably do that safely if she wanted to." 

This lecture is offered in conjunction with the "Myra Albert Wiggins: A Photographer's Life" exhibition at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

Lunar New Year


February 19 is the beginning of the year 4713 on the Chinese calendar.  New Year festivities begin on the first day of the Chinese month, when the moon is darkest, and continue through the fifteenth, when the moon is the brightest.    

Legend says that in ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on the New Year.  Twelve came, and Buddha named a year after each of them, announcing that people born in each animal's year would have some of the animal's personality.  4713 is a year of the sheep. Those born in sheep years tend to be mild-mannered, shy, kind, and peace-loving.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Dr. R. J. A. Wilson

Director, Centre for the Study of Ancient Sicily

Professor Emeritus of the Archaeology of the Roman Empire

The University of British Columbia, Vancouver

This talk will describe the results of the University of British Columbia's archaeological excavations in Sicily between 2008 and 2010.  The site was at Punta Secca (RG), known to millions of Italians as the home of TV cop, Salvo Montalbano; it lies right on the south coast of Sicily, is a late Roman and Early Byzantine village.  It was partly excavated in the 1960s and 1970s by Paola Pelagatti, Honorary Fellow of the BSR, and identified by her as the Kaukana of the ancient sources, where Belisarius set sail for the conquest of Africa in 533 AD.  The aim of the new excavation was to focus on one building, a house, and examine in detail its building phases, its function, and the commercial contacts that its inhabitants enjoyed with other parts of Sicily - and indeed the wider Mediterranean world.  While substantial progress was made on all these questions, the biggest surprise was the discovery of a tomb placed in what was probably the yard of the house in the second quarter of the seventh century AD, and of evidence for associated feasting in honour of the deceased.  Who was inside the tomb, and why did that person deserve this level of respect?  What evidence was there for feasts, and what did they eat?  Was it pagan or a Christian burial?  And what was the tomb doing here, in a domestic setting, rather than in the village cemetery, or indeed, if the deceased was Christian, in or near the settlement's church?  These and other intriguing questions will be addressed in the lecture, and the discovery set in the context of what else is knownabout such practices in late Roman and early Byzantine funerary culture.

Event Image Helen (PREVIEW)
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

Guest Director: Michelle Seaton

In this fresh take on Euripides’ tragicomedy, Helen never went to Troy but spent the war fought in her name in an Egyptian hotel room waiting for her husband Menelaus to come find her and take her home. In her odd exile, Helen receives visits from Io, a mythical figure who was once turned into a cow, and the goddess Athena, who informs her of the devastation that Helen’s empty image has wrought upon the world. Bewildered by her strange escape from her own story, even Menelaus’ final arrival cannot save Helen from the legend that has grown far larger than the woman who inspired it.

Guest Director: Michelle Seaton

In this fresh take on Euripides’ tragicomedy, Helen never went to Troy but spent the war fought in her name in an Egyptian hotel room waiting for her husband Menelaus to come find her and take her home. In her odd exile, Helen receives visits from Io, a mythical figure who was once turned into a cow, and the goddess Athena, who informs her of the devastation that Helen’s empty image has wrought upon the world. Bewildered by her strange escape from her own story, even Menelaus’ final arrival cannot save Helen from the legend that has grown far larger than the woman who inspired it.

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Myra Albert Wiggins (1869-1956) was a Salem photographer and early member of Alfred Stieglitz’s Photo-Secessionist Group.

A major exhibition of her work will open February 14 and continue through April 26, 2015, in the Study Gallery and Print Study Center at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

Born and raised in Salem, Oregon, Wiggins was a painter, poet and singer, as well as an instructor, essayist and speaker on art topics. But it was as a photographer that she established herself as an internationally recognized artist. From the late 1890s until 1910, her photographs were exhibited throughout the United States, as well as Paris, Vienna and London.

University Convocation - "Mindfulness -- What is That!?"
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

Source of well-being, stress-reduction technique, workout enhancer, study aid... Can the practice of being truly present in the moment really provide all these benefits? Popular and commercial culture has adopted mindfulness as the answer to what ails us. But what is it?

This Convocation will offer an introduction to mindfulness practice and feature student and staff practitioners. Come to Convo and breathe!

Planned and facilitated by the interdisciplinary class, "Convo: Campus/Community/Cosmos," the University Convocation series brings speakers, musicians, or other performers -- often with a spiritual or ethical message -- to campus every week.
Mindfulness Meditation
4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

This weekly gathering is not open to the public.

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!

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Myra Albert Wiggins (1869-1956) was a Salem photographer and early member of Alfred Stieglitz’s Photo-Secessionist Group. At the turn of the last century, Wiggins was considered one of the foremost women photographers in America. A major exhibition of her work will open February 14 and continue through April 26, 2015, in the Study Gallery and Print Study Center at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

Born and raised in Salem, Oregon, Wiggins was a painter, poet and singer, as well as an instructor, essayist and speaker on art topics. But it was as a photographer that she established herself as an internationally recognized artist. From the late 1890s until 1910, her photographs were exhibited throughout the United States, as well as Paris, Vienna and London.

Organized by the Museum of Art at Washington State University, this exhibition features the artwork of Seattle native and Lawrence, Kansas-based artist Roger Shimomura, whose paintings and prints address socio-political issues of Asian Americans through a style that combines his childhood interest in comic books with the traditions of American Pop art and Japanese woodcut prints.

Event Image What's Behind All This 'Nones'-Sense? - Examining Religious Non-Affiliation in the United States Ove
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Kelley Strawn, Associate Professor of Sociology, will present the results of his recent research examining whether predictors - or "causes" - of religious non-affiliation in the United States have changed over the last forty years. While the popular media and political "messagers" like to latch onto particular explanations for the rise of religious non-affiliation, evidence suggests that (a) it is very difficult to characterize or predict who does or does not self-describe as "non-affiliated"; and (b) that those factors that do provide some degree of explanation have changed over time.
