Oregon Supreme Court Hears Cases at Willamette Law
8:30 AM - 1:00 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

On Friday, March 2, 2018, the Oregon Supreme Court will hear two cases at Willamette Law. Each year, the Oregon Supreme Court brings cases to the state's three law schools as part of their efforts to connect Oregonians with the work of the judicial system. Making the appellate process more accessible both enhances understanding of the role that courts play in administering civil and criminal laws and improves citizens' access to justice.

Law and undergraduate students, faculty, staff and members of the public are welcome to attend the hearings, scheduled for 9 and 10:30 a.m. in the College of Law's Paulus Lecture Hall, room 201, at Willamette University's Truman Wesley Collins Legal Center, 245 Winter Street SE, Salem, OR 97301. The court will answer questions after oral arguments are heard.

Attendees are asked to arrive by 8:30 a.m. in order to be seated by 8:50 a.m. Doors will close promptly at 8:55 a.m. No one will be admitted once the court is in session.

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.

Goodwill and the Alliance:  U.S.-Japan Cooperation during and after March 11th
10:20 AM - 11:20 AM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

On March 11, 2011, a 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck Japan off the coast of Tohoku followed by a devastating tsunami that killed nearly 20,000 people including two Americans. It was the largest earthquake on record to hit Japan and triggered the meltdown of two nuclear reactors in Fukushima. In the days and weeks following the disaster, the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo mobilized U.S. government operations and resources provided to the Japanese government while the U.S. military coordinated massive humanitarian aid and disaster relief operations dubbed, Operation Tomodachi (i.e. “friend” in Japanese). This support has generated significant goodwill between the two countries and reinforced the importance of the U.S.-Japan alliance. As part of its newest outreach series on U.S.-Japan relations, The Alliance Working in America, Sasakawa USA is co-sponsoring a special lecture at Willamette University to discuss U.S.-Japan cooperation in the aftermath of Japan’s March 11 Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. The lecture will feature Sasakawa USA CEO, Ambassador James P. Zumwalt, who was the Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo at the time of the crisis. He will discuss his role and the U.S. government’s response following the disaster, the importance of the U.S.-Japan alliance to American interests, and the future of U.S.-Japan cooperation. About Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA is an independent American non-profit, non-partisan institution in Washington, D.C. devoted to research, analysis, and better understanding of U.S.-Japan relations. Through research and education programs, Sasakawa USA facilitates people-to-people exchange and dialogue between American and Japanese policymakers, influential citizens, and the broader public.

Maggie Bertram - It's Not about Food: Identity and Eating Disorders
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall
*WU Campus

As part of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, Active Minds speaker Maggie Bertam will be coming to campus to share her story. Growing up in a small town, Maggie Bertram always felt like she was under a microscope. Add a dash of inherited anxiety, and she progressively developed pronounced perfectionism. In her presentation, “It's Not about Food: Identity and Eating Disorders”, she leads audiences through her story of striving for flawlessness, coming out, internalized homophobia, anorexia and recovery, to let people know that there is a reason to expect light in the darkness. Determined to be a perfect friend, student, athlete, musician, and daughter, Maggie struggled with obsessive-compulsive behaviors until developing an eating disorder during her junior year of college, eventually being diagnosed with major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and anorexia nervosa. By the time she graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from college, she had come out as a lesbian to her friends, family, and professors, and had successfully completed an inpatient/outpatient treatment program.
