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.

Faculty Colloquium: DeLessio-Parson
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Please join us Friday, February 23rd, at 3 p.m. in the Hatfield Room for our fourth Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Presenter: Anne DeLessio-Parson, Visiting Instructor Sociology Title: “Conceptualizing Eating for Liberation: A Participatory Action Project” Abstract: Structures of power and oppression impede collective responses to the unfolding climate crisis. When we want to take action as individuals, it can be challenging to determine where to focus our efforts. Food as a medium for motivating action holds enormous potential to drive social change: food is a universal human need, and the act of eating invites us into a conversation when we sit down to share the table. In this talk, I will present the framework for Eating for Liberation 2018, a food-focused participatory action project. This project invites participants to develop their food philosophies and consider how individual choices relate to collective patterns of consumption, thought, and movement. By bringing together readings from across disciplines, it also provides a space for synthesis and the cultivation of critical consciousness. I will also reflect on the ways that social network theory informs project concept and study design. We are also still seeking participants, you may go to http://www.eatingforliberation.com/ to learn more. Students are welcome and coffee and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there. Ellen Eisenberg and Bill Kelm Faculty Colloquium Coordinators

In April 2016, he was appointed Artistic Director of the Sarasota Music Festival, which offers master classes and chamber music coaching by a distinguished international faculty and features chamber music performances and orchestral concerts performed by highly advanced student and young professionals as well as faculty members.

A native of Los Angeles and a graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Mr. Kahane's early piano studies were with Howard Weisel and Jakob Gimpel. First Prize winner at the 1983 Rubinstein Competition and a finalist at the 1981 Van Cliburn Competition, he was also the recipient of a 1983 Avery Fisher Career Grant. An avid linguist who reads widely in a number of ancient and modern languages, Mr. Kahane received a Master’s Degree in Classics from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2011. He is currently a Professor of Keyboard Studies at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.
