From February 15- March 15 the Sustainability Institute along with Housing will be putting on an energy competition between residence halls across campus. Each building's energy usage will be measured throughout the month to determine which hall reduced their electricity use the most. Unplug your appliances, turn off your lights, and spend time in common areas (to use the same light source thus reducing your collective usage) to help your building win! Follow our event on Facebook (Willamette Unplugged: Energy Compeition) to sign our pledge and be entered into a weekly raffle to win sustainable prizes, receive updates on your building's status in the competition, and get tips on how to live a more sustainable life. Join in the first ever energy competition on campus and help make the Willamette campus a more sustainable place to live!

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Holy Beauty:
Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible


Organized by Professor Ricardo De Mambro Santos, the exhibition features as its centerpiece the Hexham Abbey Bible, a rare 17th-century English Bible printed in Cambridge, England in 1629. The Bible includes 110 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints that were interpolated into the volume after it was printed.

Prints within the Bible include works attributed to Philip Galle (Dutch, 1537-1612), after Maarten van Heemskerck (Dutch, 1498-1574); Hieronymus Cock (Flemish, 1518-1579), Jan Sadeler (Flemish, 1550-1600), and Maerten de Vos (Flemish, 1532-1603), among others.  

Visitors will have an opportunity to scroll through the Bible via touch screens in the Study Gallery. In addition, the exhibition will include 35 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints—some like those found in the Bible and others of the period—on view in the Print Study Center and the Maribeth Collins Lobby.

Event Image The Voice of a 21st Century American: From the Individual to the World at Large
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

A Workshop With Spoken Word Poet Amal Kassir This workshop is built around the concepts of evolution, engagement and empowerment in the American experience. It utilizes the individual experience to define social injustice and utilize this definition to recognize various issues and how to mitigate them through tangible means. This is done through engaging our personal identities, spirituality, morality, and passions to be active in the social justice sphere using our own storytelling. Through this, we will bridge the gaps between our worlds and the world at large, making change through storytelling a tangible thing.

Kevin Dicus
Assistant Professor, Department of Classics
University of Oregon

The history of Pompeii is often reduced to a single moment: its destruction and burial in AD 79. Vivid images of the ruins and the casts of Vesuvius’ victims bring a focus onto the “death” of the city while its full life history remains underappreciated. How the city developed, changed, and functioned over the course of six centuries is increasingly understood through archaeological research. This talk examines the life history of a small Pompeian neighborhood excavated by the “Pompeii Archaeological Research Project: Porta Stabia,” from the earliest occupation in the 6th century BC to the final years of the city’s existence.
