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.

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

Emma Coddington, Biology
Emily Drew, Sociology
Bill Duvall, History

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

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

*WU Campus - Smith Auditorium

“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 7:30 p.m. and March 15 at 3 p.m.

The Thursday, March 12 performance will have a pre-show reception and entertainment.  All other performances will have a post-show reception.

Opportunity to Study Abroad in Xi'an, The Hometown of Terra-cotta Soldiers in China
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

Situated in the ancient capital city of Xi’an, one of the four internationally renowned historical and cultural cities, Shaanxi Normal University was founded in 1944. During its more than 60-year history in education, Shaanxi Normal University, while rooted in China’s West, has embraced the whole country, developed a school spirit of “Morality, Learning, Aspiration and Action” and has seen itself become firmly established in Western China as an influential top-tier comprehensive teachers training university, as it strives to achieve the goal of building itself to be a major comprehensive research university distinguished by its teacher education. SNNU is also a major base for training teachers and administrators of higher learning institutes and secondary schools as well as other high-level professionals in China, and is known as the “Cradle of Teachers” in Northwest China.

Professor Shujuan Li is a visiting scholar from International Business School of Shaanxi Normal University. She will give a talk on the environment and curriculum and the opportunity to study abroad in SNNU. The talk will be conducted in English and is open to the whole Willamette University campus and community.

Location: Ford Hall, World Language Studio

Event Image Unexpected Writing from an Engaged Intellectual: Ahmed Kalouaz and Adolescent Literature
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Professor Bill Duvall will speak about his research on the author, Ahmed Kalouaz. Ahmed Kalouaz is a contemporary French writer of Algerian descent. He is part of the second generation coming out of the immigrant communities, a group that arrived on the French literary and political scene in the 1980s. I will shift my focus a bit in this presentation. Kalouaz has been writing adolescent literature over the past 8 years in an effort to help the third and fourth generations better understand their predicament in the face of the racism and social injustice they experience in the streets of France. Initially I was going to reflect on that literature and on Kalouaz's continued role as engaged intellectual. But I received a manuscript from Kalouaz on 9 January in which he weaves a number of things together, including the search for his grandfather's story which ended in his death just after World War II. I will talk about the novels Kalouaz has written in the effort to bring to life the life of his father and the generation of immigrants to France that surrounded him. Because of his father's unlettered silence (so common to his generation), Kalouaz has had to invent a history and a social memory. What runs through the stories he tells about his family is the memory of the brutal French Algerian war. In Kalouaz's mind, it cuts like a knife through contemporary French society as the French continue to live out the consequences of that war. The arrival of his manuscript on 9 January seems to bring an uncanny focus on the heritage of the war.

*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.

Event Image Exhibition | Myra Albert Wiggins: A Photographer's Life | Feb. 14 - April 26, 2015
10:00 AM - 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.

Event Image Atkinson Lecture Series featuring Ben & Jerry's co-founder, Jerry Greenfield
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus
*WU Campus - Smith Auditorium

On March 18, 2015, Willamette University, Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry's Homemade, Inc., will present "An Evening of Entrepreneurial Spirit, Social Responsibility and Radical Business Philosophy." As a special treat, a limited supply of Ben & Jerry's ice cream bars will be given out to attendees. Co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc., Greenfield has helped to build a storefront venture into a $300 million ice cream empire by making social responsibility and creative management strengths instead of weaknesses. With his best seller, Ben & Jerry’s Double- Dip: Lead with Your Values and Make Money, Too (co-authored with Cohen), Greenfield created both a nuts-and-bolts guidebook to the promise and pitfalls of “values-led” business, and an inspiring wake-up call about the growing international influence of the “socially conscious” or “mission-driven” corporation. Bringing all of this to life at the lecture podium, Greenfield’s presentation delivers a rousing tribute to America’s entrepreneurial spirit, full of anecdotes and radical business philosophy. It also addresses the great sense of fun that is the company’s hallmark, illustrated with the serving of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for the entire audience. Jerry Greenfield was born in Brooklyn, New York, four days before his future business partner Ben Cohen. He grew up and went to school in Merrick, Long Island. It was there that he first met Ben in junior high school, and the two have remained close friends ever since. Greenfield graduated from high school with a National Merit Scholarship under his belt and enrolled at Oberlin College to study pre-med. At Oberlin, Greenfield got his first taste of the ice cream industry when he took a job as a scooper in the college cafeteria. After graduation, he worked as a lab technician in New York and lived with his school buddy Ben in an apartment on East 10th Street. In 1977, with Jerry thoroughly sick of his occupation as lab tech, the two friends decided to fulfill a dream they both shared: running a food business together. The two eventually settled on ice cream, and, after a bit of research (and a $5 Penn State correspondence course in ice cream making), opened Ben & Jerry’s Homemade ice cream parlor in Burlington, Vermont in May 1978. Ben and Jerry soon became known throughout Vermont for their rich, unusual flavors and community-oriented approach to business. They sponsored a Fall Down Festival and a free outdoor movie festival, and celebrated their anniversaries with a Free Cone Day. Jerry began by making all the ice cream, but as the company expanded into new markets, he soon found himself handling everything from distribution to orientation to employee motivation. Today a model for American business success, Greenfield and Cohen have been recognized for fostering their company’s commitment to social responsibility by the Council on Economic Priorities (which awarded them the Corporate Giving Award in 1988 for donating 7.5 percent of their pre-tax profits to non-profit organizations through the Ben & Jerry’s Foundation), and by the U.S. Small Business Administration (which named them U.S. Small Business Persons of the Year in 1988 in a White House ceremony hosted by President Reagan). Greenfield's lecture commemorates 40 years of excellence in management education at Willamette University's Atkinson Graduate School of Management.
