Event Image Atkinson Lecture featuring Sherman Alexie
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Smith Auditorium

Described by The New York Times Book Review as “one of the major lyric voices of our time,” best-selling author and poet Sherman Alexie is coming to Willamette University March 11.

The event begins at 7:30 p.m. in Smith Auditorium.

Alexie’s first novel, “Reservation Blues,” won a Booklist’s Editors Choice Award for Fiction. His second, “Indian Killer,” was a New York Times Notable Book, and one of his more recent publications, “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian,” won the National Book Award in Young People’s Literature in 2007.

Alexie wrote and produced the film, “Smoke Signals,” based on his book, “The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven.” The film won the Audience Award and Filmmakers Trophy at the 1998 Sundance Film festival. In 2002, Alexie made his directorial debut with “The Business of Fancydancing.”

Raised on the Spokane Indian Reservation in Wellpinit, Wash., Alexie is known for his exceptional humor and performance ability. He’s been featured on “Politically Incorrect,” “60 Minutes II” and “NOW with Bill Moyers.”

Last fall, Alexie released “Blasphemy,” an anthology of new stories and beloved classics. Kirkus Review named it as one of the Top 25 Best Fiction Books of 2012.

Event Image Sacred Spaces and Human Sacrifice: The Nasca Lines in their Cultural and Religious Context
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Dr. Christina Conlee
Professor of Anthropology
Texas State University
Dr. Christina Conlee will present a lecture on the Nasca Lines of southern Peru, which have long been an enigma for archaeologists and lay people alike. Many theories have been proposed about what they were used for and why they were constructed. In the last 20 years archaeologists have learned much more about the ancient Nasca people and we are now able to understand the lines as an important part of their religion. These were sacred places where ceremonies were performed and offerings were made to ensure fertility and the continuation of society.

Mindfulness Meditation

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!
FRESH FRUIT, BROKEN BODIES: MIGRANT FARMWORKERS IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, Seth Holmes
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Based on five years of research in the field (including berry-picking and traveling with migrants back and forth from Oaxaca up the West Coast), this lecture (and new book by the same name) explores how market forces, anti-immigrant sentiment, and racism undermine health and health care. The discussion examines structural and symbolic violence, medicalization, and the clinical gaze as they affect the experiences and perceptions of a vertical slice of indigenous Mexican migrant farm workers, farm owners, doctors, and nurses. This work analyzes the ways in which socially structured suffering comes to be perceived as normal and natural in society and in health care, especially through imputations of ethnic body difference.

Event Image Walking and Harmony: Studying Walking Smoothness of Older Adults Using the Harmonic Ratio
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

Similar to the concept of musical harmony, a person’s walking motions can be constructive, or in phase with the base frequency (consonant), or destructive and out of phase with the base frequency (dissonant). In biomechanics, walking ‘smoothness’ is quantified as the ratio of the amplitude of constructive and destructive acceleration harmonics. In older adults, walking smoothness breaks down into more dissonant states caused by increased ‘out of phase’ motions, and this breakdown occurs faster in individuals at a higher risk of falling. My current work explores practical aspects of the use of this sort of biomechanical variable, such as whether it is impacted by walking on a treadmill, and whether it can be represented by clinical tests of stepping, which would have implications toward improving clinical assessment of mobility function.

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is pleased to offer free admission in celebration of Hallie Ford's (1905-2007) birthday.

In 1996, with the support of long-time benefactor Hallie Ford and the Ford Family Foundation, Willamette purchased the vacant US West Communications building that was transformed into the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. 

With the resources of the Ford Family Foundation and as a trustee of Willamette University, Mrs. Ford sought to benefit the arts and education throughout Oregon. Her birthday offers us a moment to reflect on her generosity and the enduring legacy of her philanthropic efforts.

Naw-Rúz


The Baha’i New Year’s Day coincides with the spring equinox. Naw-Ruz is an ancient Persian festival celebrating the "new day" and for Baha'is it marks the end of the annual 19-Day Fast. It is one of the nine holy days of the year when work is suspended.
Ostara


Ostara, the Spring Equinox, marks the first day of spring. It is the time when the God grows to maturity. The night and day are equal, therefore it is a time of balance when our lives can be brought into harmony. For Wiccans it is a time of beginnings of action.
