Event Image Art History Student Exhibit: "PIECES and PARTS" | Dec. 4 - Feb. 12 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

The Department of Art History invites all faculty, students and staff to visit the "PIECES and PARTS" exhibition on display at Mark O. Hatfield Library (2nd floor) December 4 through February 12, 2016. Partly sponsored by a 2015 Mellon Grant Learning by Creating, the "PIECES and PARTS" exhibition is the result of a highly collaborative project involving all students of the Fall 2015 Art History course, Art Historical Inquiry: What is Art About? taught by Ricardo De Mambro Santos. Students were asked to choose an image or "visual construction" from either an artwork, mass media or their own daily lives, from which they would analyze its stylistic features, the semantic implications and potential discursive practices embedded in the image, or "piece." They were then requested to reinterpret their selected image with a visual critique as well as write an interpretive commentary of their "own" image-based work.

Lunar New Year


February 8 is the beginning of the year 4714 on the lunar calendar.  New Year festivities begin on the first day of the lunar 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.  4714 is a year of the monkey. Those born in monkey years tend to be fun, energetic, and active.
Nirvana Day


Nirvana Day is the Buddhist festival marking the anniversary of Buddha's death.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus
*WU Campus - Smith Auditorium

Religious scholar and bestselling author Reza Aslan will deliver the spring Atkinson Lecture: “Holy Wars: Religion and Violence at Home and Abroad.” During his talk at Willamette, Aslan will address the ideology fueling al-Qaida, the Taliban and other “holy warriors.” He’ll describe ways to manage, perhaps defeat, those who employ religious violence. Aslan is the author of The New York Times’ bestseller, “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth,” international bestseller, “No god but God: The Origins, Evolution and the Future of Islam,” and “How to Win a Cosmic War.” His frequent media appearances garner millions of views as he challenges the audience to consider the “earthly grievances” Aslan argues are at the root of global conflict.

Event Image Frost Lecture Series 2016: Mhoze Chikowero
7:00 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

Beyond the Popular: Epistemological and Historiographical Politics of African Music

In this Frost Lecture, Mhoze Chikowero centers his newly published book, African Music, Power and Being in Colonial Zimbabwe to present a multilayered history of  African music in Zimbabwe and Southern Africa beyond the conventional framing of the “popular.” He proffers a new, critical intervention that engages with questions of power in both the musical cultures and the epistemological and historiographical battles that characterize scholarship on the subject. Much more than write a history of music, Chikowero utilizes music as an archive to write history from a critical African perspective. So central to African spirituality and wellbeing was music that, starting in the 1890s, European missionaries, ethnomusicologists and the incipient state targeted and sought to destroy, subvert or domesticate it in their bid to culturally disarm and colonize the Africans. And it was partly through the same musical practices that Africans fought colonial subjugation both during the First Chimurenga (war of self-liberation) in the 1890s and the Second Chimurenga in the 1960s-70s. For Chikowero, Zimbabwean (and much of Southern African) song therefore constitutes a Chimurenga archive for writing robust, hitherto silenced histories of African being and self-liberation.
Event Image Douglas Crimp: Before Pictures
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

A central figure in the field of art history and cultural and queer studies, Douglas Crimp will read from his upcoming memoir, Before Pictures, an autobiographical reflection on art, theory, and the queer subcultures of New York in the 60s and 70s. Reading from the chapter "Hotel des Artistes," Crimp will revisit the first catalogue essay he wrote--for an exhibition devoted to American minimal painting--and weave in stories of his first summer on Fire Island and various early excursions to Europe.

Crimp is Fanny Knapp Allen Professor of Art History at the University of Rochester and the author of On the Museum's Ruins (1993), Melancholia and Moralism: Essays on AIDS and Queer Politics (2002), and "Our Kind of Movie": The Films of Andy Warhol (2012). He was the curator at Artists Space, in New York, in 1977 and an editor of October magazine from 1977 to 1990. He co-organized Mixed Use, Manhattan: Photography and Related Practices 1970s to the Present for the Reina Sofia in Madrid, and he was on the curatorial team for the current iteration of MoMA PS1's quinquennial Greater New York.

Event Image Art History Student Exhibit: "PIECES and PARTS" | Dec. 4 - Feb. 12 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

The Department of Art History invites all faculty, students and staff to visit the "PIECES and PARTS" exhibition on display at Mark O. Hatfield Library (2nd floor) December 4 through February 12, 2016. Partly sponsored by a 2015 Mellon Grant Learning by Creating, the "PIECES and PARTS" exhibition is the result of a highly collaborative project involving all students of the Fall 2015 Art History course, Art Historical Inquiry: What is Art About? taught by Ricardo De Mambro Santos. Students were asked to choose an image or "visual construction" from either an artwork, mass media or their own daily lives, from which they would analyze its stylistic features, the semantic implications and potential discursive practices embedded in the image, or "piece." They were then requested to reinterpret their selected image with a visual critique as well as write an interpretive commentary of their "own" image-based work. For more information of the "PIECES and PARTS" exhibition, go to http://willamette.edu/cla/arth/events/pieces-and-parts/index.html

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Professor Ron Loftus, Professor of Japanese Language and East Asian History, will speak about his recent research. During my Spring 2017 sabbatical, I completed a book-length manuscript on Taoka Reiun (1870-1912), a literary and social critic who was active from the early 1890s until his early death in 1912. A maverick, Reiun urged his readers to question the entire meaning of bunmei, or “civilization,” as a trajectory for modern Japan. A student in Chinese Studies at the university, he found himself drawn to ancient Indian and Chinese thought: the Vedas, the Upanishads, the Daodejing, the Yijing, and the essays of Zhuangzi, as well as the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer. He was also taken with contemporary critics like Fabian Socialist Edward Carpenter and German physician Max Nordau. Bunmei-kaika, or “civilization and enlightenment,” was embraced by most Japanese as the best pathway to becoming modern; but Reiun questioned whether it had delivered on its promises. He saw the whole notion of modernity as the triumph of a utilitarian, materialistic, instrumentalist view of the world and he did not trust it. Reiun feared that the “objective” or “scientific” view of reality, was too narrow and superficial. He wanted something more: a truer, deeper portrayal of the human experience. By challenging the assumptions of modernity itself, Reiun was taking an intriguing and bold stance that I will explore in presentation.

Adventure and Discovery aboard a Pre-Columbian Balsa Raft (AIA Stone Lecture)
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

John Haslett, Author & Explorer In September 1526, off the coast of what is now modern-day Ecuador, two vessels met on the Pacific Ocean. One was Spanish and most likely a caravel. The other was a balsa raft, carrying “sails and rope as fine as anything in Castile.” The mariners aboard this unusual vessel are today classified as the Manteño-Huancavilca. At their height they numbered roughly sixty thousand, had at least five major chiefdoms on the coast, and had an economy based on sea transportation. In the time before the Spaniards, Manteño balsa rafts carried Inka dignitaries and regular freight alike. The vessel the Spanish caravel encountered in 1526 was a balsa raft that came from the chiefdom of Salango, and in 1995, the author and his colleagues went to this tiny fishing village, which still has a thriving maritime culture, to begin building their first balsa raft. Over the next five years, the author and his team sailed balsa rafts for 125 days and lived aboard those vessels for an additional 90 days in various ports and anchorages. Their voyages were punctuated by “madness, mutiny, mud, terror, desperation, failure, disease, death, the surreal, and the sublime.” In that time, and in the years afterward, they have emerged with a unique view of the Manteño raft, its abilities, its limitations, and its impact on pre-Columbian trade in northwestern South America. Join writer John Haslett for a fascinating look at life aboard a raft at sea. The author will share stories, video, and still images from his voyages, and then summarize the sightings of sailing rafts throughout history, the important features of each of those vessels, and the questions that still remain concerning construction and navigation of pre-Columbian watercraft.
