*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.

Event Image The New (Old) Image Wars: Rethinking Image and Violence after Paris | Lecture
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Dr. Anna Marazuela Kim, Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture, University of Virginia

The tragic events at Charlie Hebdo are a reminder of the continuing force of images in contemporary culture. Far from an isolated incident, tensions surrounding portrayals of the Prophet Muhammad continue to resonate and escalate, threatening further polarization and violence. Media responses to the crisis have framed this as a clash between “Western” and “Islamist” values – freedom of speech versus religious extremism – with the assumption of an arcane view of pictorial representation at its basis. This lecture aims to shift the terms of the debate by giving a longer view of the relation of images to violence. Drawing upon historic examples, ontologies and anthropologies of the image, Dr. Kim will engage the image wars of the past for insight into their role in the current global context, articulating confluences between East and West, past and present, that shape emergent struggles over the geopolitics of the visual.

Dr. Anna Marazuela Kim earned a B.A. ​​from the University of Notre Dame's Program of Liberal Studies and M.A. ​​and ​Ph.​D​. degrees​ in the History of Art and Architecture ​from the University of Virginia. She also studied Ancient Greek Philosophy and Ethics at Brown University with Prof. Martha Nussbaum.​ ​ ​

Dr. Kim's current research engages the deep structures of our complex relation to images, working across disciplines of art history, philosophy, theology, religious studies, literature and technology. An historian of the Italian Renaissance, Byzantium and the Reformation, she writes on image theory, the icon and iconoclasm, and materiality and visuality in art, across the divide of East and West. ​ ​

Dr. Kim is a member of several international and interdisciplinary research groups. Since 2011, she has been part of a network of scholars and curators advancing a comparative-historical study of iconoclasm, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (U.K.). Members of the team have produced an exhibition, Art Under Attack: Histories of British Iconoclasm (Tate Britain, 2013), an exhibition catalog, and a an edited volume to which she contributed an essay, "Creative Iconoclasms in Renaissance Italy." Her work on iconoclasm is ongoing as a current member of a Mellon Research Forum at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, where she will be in residence in 2015-2016 as an Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow. Dr. Kim is also an Associate Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at Virginia, where she heads a research team investigating the role of beauty, the arts and aesthetics in the revitalization of cities. ​

Dr. Kim is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including an Andrew Mellon Fellowship in the Humanities, Philip du Pont Fellowships, Jefferson Scholars Foundation Dissertation-Year Fellowship, and membership in the Society of Fellows at Virginia. She has presented research and organized institutes and conferences in the U.S. and internationally, at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz, Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, Renaissance Society of America, National Humanities Center, Duke University, Medieval Institute at Notre Dame and University of Pennsylvania. She has taught at the University of Virginia in the art history department and for onsite courses in Italian art and architecture in Florence and Rome, at Virginia Commonwealth University, and the University of Richmond.

Food Chains - Film Screening and Discussion
7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

Join us for a screening of the new documentary Food Chains. Following the screening will be a discussion involving one of the film makers and a representative of PCUN, the Oregon Farm Workers Union. "Food Chains reveals the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce like fast food and supermarkets. Fast food is big, but supermarkets are bigger – earning $4 trillion globally. They have tremendous power over the agricultural system. The narrative of the film focuses on an intrepid and highly lauded group of tomato pickers from Southern Florida – the Coalition of Immokalee Workers or CIW – who are revolutionizing farm labor. Their story is one of hope and promise for the triumph of morality over corporate greed – to ensure a dignified life for farm workers and a more humane, transparent food chain."

Event Image Sympathy for the Many: Can the Novel Represent the Multitude?
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Stephanie DeGooyer, Assistant Professor of English will speak about her recent research. "Historians of the novel argue that many different readers in the eighteenth century were able to imagine the interior lives of singular protagonists such as Clarissa or Pamela. In this talk I consider if the reverse is possible: can the fictional imagination of one singular person comprehend the enslavement of millions of people? Can one author, one novel, or one protagonist, represent and comprehend the suffering of a multitude or species? Focusing for the most part on eighteenth-century novelist Laurence Sterne and his relationships to freed slave Ignatius Sancho and moral sense philosopher Adam Smith, this talk argues that there is a basic conflict between social and political demands for equality and fictionalized representations of suffering – and that this conflict cannot be simply dismissed as narcissism. Instead, I suggest that the novel is a limited form for the representation of the multitude, and it is from this space of limitation that it must uniquely address the world. "

Occurring every spring, Sakura Matsuri is a festival held to welcome and celebrate the beautiful cherry blossoms around campus and across the street at the Oregon State Capital. Sakura (cherry blossoms) are entrenched in Japanese culture. The Japanese hold significance to the sakura as a representation of the ephemeral and transient nature of life.

Sakura Matsuri has free admission and is open to the Willamette, TIUA, general Oregon community.

Empower Asian Women Film Screening
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall
*WU Campus

Join Willamette University Chinese Student Association (in collaboration with WU ACE and WU ASA) for our Empower Asian Women film screening. The "passive, sexualized, exotic Asian woman" is a stereotype Asian women must constantly battle and struggle with on a daily basis. Whether one is conscious of it or not, the objectification of Asian women affects all of us by either restricting our personal identifications, if we pertain to this specific category, or by stunting our understanding and tolerance of diversity in a country where everyone, despite sex and race, is supposedly equal. Although all women are to be celebrated, we have chosen Asian women as a focus because we recognize the necessity of realizing the diversity within feminism and we believe the identity of Asian women is already incredibly expansive in of itself. International Women's Day is on March 8th, but due to some logistical complications, we will be having our celebration on April 4th. Be on the lookout around campus for our posters with information on the importance and contributions of historical Asian women. (Posters will be posted before Spring Break) Our event will take place in the Ford Hall Theater on April 4th, 1:00-4:00pm. This event is open to everyone! We will have food and drinks. *Recently announced, we will be screening Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

Event Image How Chocolate Came To Be (AIA Lecture)
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Dr. Kathryn E. Sampeck Assistant Professor of Anthropology Illinois State University These days, chocolate is a fairly unremarkable part of our daily lives. We have many ideas that we associate with it--what color it is, how it should taste, what kinds of foods it should be part of. All of these qualities seem natural, unremarkable. Little would you suspect that chocolate has a colonial past that involved some of the greatest horrors of colonialism in Spanish America, all because of very different ideas and uses in the past. The fascinating journey from these early colonial encounters with chocolate to the more modern experience of it had much to do with who produced chocolate, where, and when and for whom--in other words, labor relations in Latin America, local politics, and Atlantic World trade. It is a story of struggles against abuse and marginalization, covert and overt resistance, victories both small and large despite changes in the political economy designed to thwart those very efforts. The social history of chocolate is truly bittersweet. To tell this less delectable side of the story of chocolate, Dr. Sampeck will follow two lines of evidence: various kinds of documents including accounts, descriptions, and so on, and information from archaeology--the kinds of places laborers lived, where, what sorts of things they used in their daily life, which gives us a window into the conditions of their lives, while the implements for preparing and serving chocolate and where and how they are a part of material culture show how consumers made chocolate a part of their lives. The two lines of evidence often complement each other, but in some cases not. By comparing the archaeology and ethnohistory of producers and consumers, we see that every time we use the word chocolate, we invoke its Mesoamerican past; when we taste the bitter and the sweet, we taste the political and economic choices of the colonial past. It is no accident that we think of chocolate as sinful, as healthy, as dark, as rich. These are all experiences that were shaped by and had profound effects on the daily lives of both chocolate consumers and the people who lived and worked in the birthplace of chocolate.
