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. "

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

A young man drawn silently towards the siren call of oblivion. A river of cinematic images and sounds flowing into an ocean. A yawning abyss. A woman. The last shot in this film could land the director in jail. In Search of the Miraculous is a personal film, a document of a feeling and also a bio pic about Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader. This short film was an attempt to capture that spirit of the Pacific Northwest: a sense of foreboding amid architecture so beautifully disintegrating. Willamette Alumni and Carson Grant recipient Sam Kuhn presents his film In Search of the Miraculous, a fourteen minute short that premiered at this years Slamdance film festival. Afterwards there will be a Q & A and short discussion regarding the creative hurdles and legal ramifications of modern guerrilla filmmaking.

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.

Myra Albert Wiggins (1869-1956) was a Salem photographer and early member of Alfred Stieglitz’s Photo-Secessionist Group.

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 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.

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Abigail Susik, Assistant Professor of Art History will report on her recent research. "Automatism" was an aesthetic concept and practice that the French Surrealists famously borrowed from the new field of psychoanalysis just after World War I. Starting around 1919, artists and writers such as André Breton and Max Ernst systematically began to investigate the human mind as a source of unconscious and marvelous artistic material, an exploration which soon became the ideological foundation for the Modern Art movement called "Surrealism." Several of the Surrealists were veterans of the Great War, and some of them were also medical interns at the Front who had practiced Psychiatry on victims of war trauma. Following the war, these Surrealists often gathered together to play writing and drawing games meant to cultivate unconscious outpourings. Some of the participants even fell into deep trances and uttered fantastic thoughts which were transcribed by other members of the group into a strange kind of dream poetry. My recent research attempts to extend beyond the now-familiar idea that Surrealism is primarily a product of psychoanalysis. This presentation questions whether there might be a productive comparison between Surrealism and the post-World War I Ouija Board craze in the United States and England, or that matter, between Surrealism and the rise of a secretarial trade for women at this time. Both of these phenomena, the Ouija Board and the influx of women as copyists or stenographers, are direct results of the Great War, and both focus on the same kind of passive "dictation" that so fascinated the Surrealists as the best means of accessing the unconscious. What is the significance of these broad contextual parallels?

Diane Trevett paints Salem Chamber Orchestra 30th Anniversary Commemorative Painting

Diane Trevett ~ Calla Studio Fine Art

Diane's approach to drawing and painting comes from her emotional and spiritual response to the subject.  Flowers, fruit, sea shells, and land forms inspire her. She uses a scientific and illustrative approach to flower and plant study as in botanical illustration. However, she departs from that style in a contemporary and stylized way.

She works in a spacious studio/gallery adjacent to her home in Salem, Oregon, called “Calla Studio”. It is named after the calla lily, a flower with unique form and color that has been a long-time inspiration. This flower became a motif of her idol, Georgia O’Keeffe.

The subject of this painting for the SCO is a French horn with a morning glory flower.  
Diane explains: “I enjoy combining flowers or plants and musical instruments, where one morphs into the other,  emphasizing their common attributes of shape, form and structure”.

Diane received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Southern Oregon University in 1991, with a focus on drawing and painting.   Since then she has worked in arts management and is currently employed as an administrative assistant in the music department at Willamette University.

Panel Discussion: Redesigning Capitalism -- A Conversation about How to Build an Equitable Future

Willamette Students and Professors Address Environmental Issues and Wealth Inequality in Anticipation of Earth Day SALEM, Ore. – On April 15 at 7 p.m. in Cone Chapel, Willamette University will host a student-led interdisciplinary discussion about capitalism and climate change. Featuring four of the university’s leading faculty experts, the event is free and open to the public. Participants include: Nathan Sivers Boyce, chair of the university’s economics department; Wendy Petersen Boring, chair of the history department; William Smaldone, E. Jerry Whipple Professor of History; and Elliot Maltz, marketing professor for the university’s Atkinson Graduate School of Management. These distinguished scholars will contribute their expertise to a conversation that identifies how the structure of our economy contributes to climate change and rising wealth inequality. The inquiry and discussion is focused on identifying solutions, and the students leading the effort hope that this is the first of many such discussions across the state. “As Earth Day approaches, we wanted to take advantage of Willamette’s exceptional faculty and to highlight tangible opportunities to build a more sustainable and just future,” said Willamette sophomore Jake Kornack, who will moderate the discussion. “This event is designed to ignite a series of conversations and to build student momentum to galvanize social change.”

Event Image "Composing a World": Ricky Ian Gordon sets Langston Hughes
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

Professors Marva Duerksen and Christine Welch Elder will discuss and perform their recent work. The provocative opening to Langston Hughes’s poem, “Daybreak in Alabama,” claims a special power for music: “When I get to be a composer, I’m gonna write me some music about daybreak in Alabama.” In the poem, Hughes goes on to imagine a world in which hands of all colors touch each other “with kind fingers,” “naturally as dew”—a utopian vision of harmonious race relations the poet can “compose” into being. American composer Ricky Ian Gordon (b. 1956) published musical settings of Hughes’s poems in 1993 and 1997, thereby composing a more contemporary reading of Hughes and, at the same time, an opportunity for audiences to enter into Hughes’s poetic and racial world via Gordon’s emotionally charged, well-crafted, and accessible music. The result is a brilliant amplification and expansion of Hughes’s meanings, and one that brings into the present our own possibilities for “composing a world.” Join us for a live performance and discussion of Gordon’s settings.

Hailed by critics as "spellbinding," "astonishing" and "immaculate”, the Ethos Percussion Group has performed at major venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater, London's Wigmore Hall, and the Library of Congress.

Ethos performances regularly feature numerous commissions and world premieres, and include traditional influences from India, West Africa and the Middle East and landmark as well as works by composers such as John Cage, Philip Glass, Lou Harrison, Steve Reich and Frank Zappa. Ethos has commissioned more than twenty-five new works for percussion quartet from composers steeped in the musical traditions of Argentina, Brazil, China, Cuba, Ghana, Guinea, India, Indonesia, Korea, Palestine and the United States.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.

He will be performing with them as a soloist in the summer.

 

Event Image The Country Wife
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

By: William Wycherly
Director: Jonathan Cole


A true gem of the Comedy of Manners genre, The Country Wife paints a frank picture of a rakish hero who will go to any length to engage in scandalous liaisons with the wives of his courtly colleagues. Ribaldry, sparkling wordplay, and old fashioned dirty tricks abound in this gleefully wicked romp through the inner chambers of 17th century London’s upper crust.

Oregon Symphony: Death on the Downbeat
8:00 PM

Off Campus

A splendid evening of classic film music and a delightfully different who-dunnit murder mystery. It seems that our most unpopular guest conductor, Maestro Bigherr, has been murdered. You - and everyone else - is a suspect, including a very guilty looking orchestra.

Myra Albert Wiggins (1869-1956) was a Salem photographer and early member of Alfred Stieglitz’s Photo-Secessionist Group.

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.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.

*WU Campus - Smith Auditorium

Dempsey Environmental Lecture 2015 “Transparency and China’s Green Choice” Ma Jun Chinese environmentalist, scholar and writer Monday, April 20, 7:30 p.m. Smith Auditorium, Willamette University Free About the speaker Through his groundbreaking efforts to curb pollution in his homeland, Ma Jun is internationally renowned as one of China’s most successful environmental activists. As the founder of the not-for-profit Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs (IPE), he has exposed more than 97,000 air and water violations by local and multinational companies operating in China. Ma Jun has convinced more than 600 companies in China — the world’s largest economy — to publicly disclose their plans and cleanup efforts, and he’s begun working collaboratively with Wal-Mart, Nike, GE and other major brands to adopt more sustainable business practices. With the help of the Internet, staffers and a dedicated following of Chinese volunteers, Ma Jun is now launching a new app to provide public, real-time data on air and water quality in China. Time magazine named Ma Jun as one of the World’s 100 Most Influential People in 2006. In 2012, he won the Goldman Environmental Prize and made the list of Foreign Policy Top 100 Global Thinkers. A former investigative journalist, Ma Jun is the author of “China’s Water Crisis,” which has been compared to Rachel Carson’s trailblazing book, “Silent Spring.” His lecture at Willamette University marks Ma Jun’s first — and only — public appearance in the United States this year.

Literacy-Based Interactive Art Display (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Come to the Salem Public Library between April 21st and May 1st to see a literacy-based, interactive art display created by local Grant Community School students. Add your own drawing to share your love of reading, help grow the display and support our students. This art project was inspired by Barbara Cooney’s book, Miss Rumphius. In her life, Miss Rumphius wants to travel around the world, live by the sea, and do something to make the world more beautiful. After reading the book, a group of third graders created canvases that show something each student might want to do to make the world more beautiful. After listening to the story of Miss Rumphius, and seeing the third graders’ artwork,a kindergarten class made their own drawings – they too were asked what they might want to do to make the world more beautiful. Are you ready to be inspired by Miss Rumphius and our artwork? Please help us grow our display by making your own drawing showing or telling us what you might want to do to make the world more beautiful! When? April 21st – May 1st Where?

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

On Tuesday, April 21, 2015, at 7:30pm in the Rogers Rehearsal Hall, Leo Records recording artists Mike Nord and Georg Hofmann will be joined by virtuoso flutist Andreas Stahel for an evening of contemporary improvised music. In their unique, improvisational blend of acoustic and electronic sounds, Nord, Hofmann, and Stahel move seamlessly from ambient textures to hard grooves and on to lyricism.  The trio’s work is influenced by their backgrounds as jazz musicians, their mutual affinity for folk and classical traditions from around the world, and their embrace of abstract new music.

Nord and Hoffman have worked together for three decades in both musical groups and in collaboration with visual artists, actors, and dancers, most recently with the dance theater ensemble Noru Ka Soru Ka.  They have performed in Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Mexico, and the US.  Their most recent release Music of Noru Ka Soru Ka is on the Leo Records label.  Both Nord and Hoffman had separately collaborated with Stahel, first playing all together when he joined Noru Ka Soru Ka for a performance in 2013.  Nord, Hofmann, and Stahel did their first tour and recording as a trio in 2014, laying the groundwork for the April 21, 2015 performance and an album release later in the year.

Nord, a Willamette University music professor performs on guitar and computer electronics. Hofmann, playing drums and percussion, and Stahel performing on contrabass, bass, and alto flutes as well as voice are based in Switzerland.  Both are on the faculty of the Konservatorium Winterthur.

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.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.

7:00 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Featuring Male Ensemble Willamette, Voce Femminile, and the Willamette Chamber Choir.

The final choral concert of the year is just around the corner at Willamette University.  It will be presented on Sunday, April 26, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. in Hudson Hall, Rogers Music Center.

As always, the literature for the concert will be varied.   Male Ensemble Willamette will perform three arrangements written specifically for the group.  Current student Jesse Anderson has arranged "Friends" by Flight of the Conchords.  Graduating senior Brian Highkin has arranged a medley of Beatles tunes "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "Carry That Weight", and "The End."  Highkin along with MEW member Grant Burleigh will play guitar on this tune.   Alumnus Michael Murray has arranged "Yes It Is" by the Beatles.  The groups signature piece "Brothers, Sing On!" will end the set .

Voce Femminile will premiere a composition by Willamette University alumnus Derek Sup (2014) called "Love" based on the well-known passage from I Corinthians 13. Mr. Sup composed this tour de force this past winter for Voce's final concert under the direction of Christine Elder.

Literacy-Based Interactive Art Display (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Come to the Salem Public Library between April 21st and May 1st to see a literacy-based, interactive art display created by local Grant Community School students. Add your own drawing to share your love of reading, help grow the display and support our students. This art project was inspired by Barbara Cooney’s book, Miss Rumphius. In her life, Miss Rumphius wants to travel around the world, live by the sea, and do something to make the world more beautiful. After reading the book, a group of third graders created canvases that show something each student might want to do to make the world more beautiful. After listening to the story of Miss Rumphius, and seeing the third graders’ artwork,a kindergarten class made their own drawings – they too were asked what they might want to do to make the world more beautiful. Are you ready to be inspired by Miss Rumphius and our artwork? Please help us grow our display by making your own drawing showing or telling us what you might want to do to make the world more beautiful! When? April 21st – May 1st Where?

Event Image Mind Zone: Therapists Behind the Front Lines

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 Mind Zone: Therapists Behind the Front Lines Presented with support from the Department of Psychology Mind Zone follows therapists with the 113th Army Combat Stress Control detachment as they carry out two conflicting missions: protecting soldiers from battle fatigue and keeping these same soldiers in the fight. With psychiatric casualties mounting, the United States Army ups the deployment of mental health detachments to war zones—an undertaking on a scale previously unimaginable. As the 113th is deployed to Afghanistan and trains for their dual roles as soldiers and healers, Colonel David Rabb and his team of therapists are equipped with a wide arsenal of psychological techniques. But as they arrive to replace the previous Combat Stress Control unit, they learn the gravity of the tasks ahead and face daunting challenges in carrying out their conflicting missions. The documentary moves between the battle zone and the home front as therapists working at the Veterans Administration reflect back on what could have been done to prevent combat stress conditions in theater. Mind Zone offers a rarely seen glimpse of heated debates within the field of psychology over diagnosis and treatment of combat conditions, and the limits of categories such as post-traumatic stress disorder in capturing the psychological impacts of warfare. : http://mindzonemovie.com/. Directed by Jan Haaken, 2014 (50 minutes) Director Jan Haaken will be present for Q & A
