Mormon Identity in the 21st Century - What has Changed?
Richard Francaviglia, WU visiting assistant professor of religious studies

Mormonism has been called "a quintessentially American religion," yet many Americans know little about it other than simple stereotypes. This presentation explores core Mormon beliefs about post-Biblical revelation, racial identity, gender roles, cultural origins, material wealth, and American exceptionalism - all of which surfaced during the unsuccessful 2012 presidential election campaign of Mormon candidate Mitt Romney. Although religion was publicly downplayed in that race, its presence was palpable and shed light on the challenges faced by the Mormon Church itself in an increasingly diverse society.

Richard Francaviglia received his Ph.D. at the University of Oregon in 1970 after writing his dissertation on "The Mormon Landscape." He recently returned to Oregon after a productive, forty-plus year career as university professor and administrator. Passionately interested in how religion reflects and shapes values, he now lectures on "Sacred  Spaces and Holy Places" and teaches occasional courses about Islam in the religious studies department at Willamette.

Faculty Recital Series: Willamette Chamber Players Spring Concert
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Willamette University’s faculty trio (Anita King, piano, Jason Duckles, cello and Daniel Rouslin, violin) will present a program of Beethoven, Bloch, and Ravel at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 in Hudson Hall.

The program will open with the spritely Trio in E-flat Major, Opus 1, No. 1, one of Beethoven’s earliest published works, composed in 1794, shortly after the composer’s arrival in Vienna from his native Bonn, Germany. Haydn’s influence is apparent here, but already with Beethoven’s idiosyncratic stamp on it.

Second on the program are Three Nocturnes for Trio composed in 1924 by the Swiss-American composer, Ernest Bloch. These were composed while Bloch was director of the Cleveland Institute of Music, 17 years before he settled in Agate Beach on the Oregon coast.

 The concert will conclude with the haunting Trio in A Minor by Maurice Ravel, composed in 1914.

For further information contact the Music Department at 503-370-6255.

Event Image Faculty Colloquium: Inga Johnson
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Please join us for a presentation by Inga Johnson (Dept. of Mathematics) this Friday at 3:00 pm in the Library Hatfield Room. The title of her talk is: Topology, Homology, and Applications to Data Abstract: Topology is the subfield of mathematics that is concerned with the study of shape. Mathematicians have studied topological questions for the past 250 years. However, in just the past 15 years topology has been found to have many different applications to real world problems. One of these is to use a topological tool called persistence homology to understand and analyze high dimensional and complex data sets. This talk will be an introduction to topology and the concept of homology. We will then use homology to a look at examples of how topological ideas can be used to give new and surprising insight towards understanding data. This talk will emphasize examples and concepts. Prerequisites will be minimal. As always, light refreshments will be provided.
