In the second he is uncovering the aesthetics and messages that construct our collective memories of the contemporary civil rights movement. Dr. Wilson's presentation is being hosted by the Civic Communication and Media department, with generous support from the Center for Religion, Law and Democracy as well as from the American Ethnic Studies program at Willamette.

Big Questions Over Lunch - Richard Francaviglia
11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

*WU Campus - Putnam University Center

"Is ISIS Really Un-Islamic?
Richard Francaviglia, visiting assistant professor of religious studies

In condemning the violent behavior of religious zealots, progressive thinkers tend to make comparisons to key scriptures such as the Qur'an, which normally condemn violence. However, in justifying their actions, religous extremists such as ISIS provide their own interpretations of passages in the Qur'an, call upon other sources such as the "hadith" (words and actions of the Prophet Muhammad) and refer to Islamic history itself for guidance.

Join us for a lively brown-bag seminar and discussion of a variety of topics. Bring your lunch or purchase it at the Cat Cavern. (Please allow an extra 15-20 minutes to purchase your lunch.)

For more program information, see Big Questions - March 2015.

Event Image “Within the Silence” Presented by Living Voices; written by Ken Mochizuki
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Within the Silence tells the story of Emiko Yamada, a young teenage girl growing up in Seattle's Nihonmachi (Japantown) during the early 1940s. The Yamadas own a small grocery store where Emiko works and dreams of someday going to college and becoming a teacher. The Yamadas are proud of their American life and their contribution to their new country.

When Japan attacks Pearl Harbor and President Roosevelt issues Executive Order 9066, Emiko’s family is forced to sell their possessions and home and sent to Minidoka concentration camp in Idaho. The story follows the Yamadas on their journey as they struggle to maintain their family while incarcerated and fight to sustain love and faith in the country they love.
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.

Event Image Echoes of the Folkelig Tradition in Carl Nielsen’s Præludium og Tema med Variationer, Op. 48
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Dr. Holland Phillips will present her research on Opus 48 by Carl Nielsen. By the time Carl Nielsen composed the Præludium og Tema med Variationer, Op. 48 in 1923, the composer had been heavily invested in creating Danish folkelige songs. Especially in the wake of the First World War and the recent reunification of northern Slesvig with Denmark, the folkelig song style had become emblematic of national Danish unity, and Nielsen was intimately tied to this heightened symbolism. The Danish folkelig song tradition is readily identifiable in the tema of the Op. 48, and I argue that the composer arranges the melody from his song Je så kun tilbage [I merely looked back] as the basis of the Op. 48’s theme. In stark stylistic contrast, the prelude that precedes this tema is among Nielsen’s most overtly modernist statements. Within the composition, Nielsen explores the virtuosic extremes of the violin and ventures beyond tonality, yet he presents a distinctively Danish folk character in the theme. Finding these two stylistic voices confined within a single opus helps us to more thoroughly explore the nature of Nielsen’s dual musical identity: a composer of international stature, versed in early twentieth-century notions of European musical modernism, and a composer of Danish traditional folkelige songs.

1:00 PM - 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.

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The Cats of Mirikitani tells the story of eighty year old Jimmy Mirikitani, who survived the trauma of WWII internment camps, Hiroshima, and homelessness by creating art. But when 9/11 threatens his life on the New York City streets and a local filmmaker takes him home, the two embark on a journey to confront Jimmy’s painful past. An intimate exploration of the lingering wounds of war and the healing powers of friendship and art, the film won the Audience Award at its premiere in the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival.

University Convocation - "Professors Profess"
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

Willamette faculty talk about how and why they responded to the call of academia. Did they always plan to teach or did they have another career path in mind? If they were headed on another path, what made them change direction?

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

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!
Event Image Dramatic Vocal Arts Performance, "Gianni Schicchi" by Puccini
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

“Trickery, greed and love twist together on the Willamette stage”

This season, Willamette University’s Dramatic Vocal Arts Program, in collaboration with the Willamette University Music Department and Theatre Department, presents Gianni Schicchi, directed by Allison Swensen-Mitchell and orchestra director Hector Aguero. In this lighthearted, witty and vibrant opera, the cast dazzles and delights as they draw us into Puccini's darkly comic tale of intrigue.

After waiting for their wealthy aristocratic father Buoso to die, the Donati family gathers for the reading of the will, only to discover that he has left his vast fortune and estate to the local monastery. The comically self-centered relatives hatch a plan to alter the will and reclaim the prize, but they need Schicchi’s assistance to pull it off. Will he help the family accomplish their scheme, or just help himself?

Based on an incident mentioned in Dante’s Divine Comedy, Puccini’s opera highlights themes of greed, love and honor. Featuring a phenomenal cast of Willamette students, alumni and guest artists, and an unfailingly beautiful score, this English adaption of the original Italian is a lively opera that will be enjoyable for all.

Performances will be in Smith Auditorium on March 12, 13 and 14 at 7 p.m. and March 15 at 3 p.m.

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.

Event Image Dramatic Vocal Arts Performance, "Gianni Schicchi" by Puccini
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

“Trickery, greed and love twist together on the Willamette stage”

This season, Willamette University’s Dramatic Vocal Arts Program, in collaboration with the Willamette University Music Department and Theatre Department, presents Gianni

Schicchi, directed by Allison Swensen-Mitchell and orchestra director Hector Aguero. In this lighthearted, witty and vibrant opera, the cast dazzles and delights as they draw us into Puccini's darkly comic tale of intrigue.

After waiting for their wealthy aristocratic father Buoso to die, the Donati family gathers for the reading of the will, only to discover that he has left his vast fortune and estate to the local monastery. The comically self-centered relatives hatch a plan to alter the will and reclaim the prize, but they need Schicchi’s assistance to pull it off. Will he help the family accomplish their scheme, or just help himself?

Based on an incident mentioned in Dante’s Divine Comedy, Puccini’s opera highlights themes of greed, love and honor. Featuring a phenomenal cast of Willamette students, alumni and guest artists, and an unfailingly beautiful score, this English adaption of the original Italian is a lively opera that will be enjoyable for all.

Performances will be in Smith Auditorium on March 12, 13 and 14 at 7 p.m. and March 15 at 3 p.m.

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

In this lecture, Roger Hull will explore the art historical and photographic references and echoes in a selection of Wiggins's best known photographs.

Myra Albert Wiggins, a painter as well as a pictorial photographer, was well-versed in the history of Western art from the Renaissance forward. She particularly admired the 17th-century Dutch tradition of sumptuous realism and its modern counterpart in the painting of William Merritt Chase, her mentor at the Art Students League. Wiggins also appreciaeted the paintings of Whitstler, Sargent, the Pre-Raphaelites, and others. Among photographers, her hero was Alfred Stieglitz and her counterparts in the Photo-Secession included Clarence H. White and Gertrude Kasebier. 

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