10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is pleased to feature the ceramic work and drawings of nationally recognized Port Townsend, Washington artist Anne Hirondelle (née Harvey). “Anne Hirondelle: Small Revolutions” opens February 11 in the Study Gallery and Print Study Center and continues through April 30, 2017.

John Olbrantz, the Maribeth Collins Director says, “Throughout her long and prolific career, Hirondelle has pushed the boundaries of the ceramic medium, making functional vessels and abstract sculptures that are warmly alive and visually engaging. This exhibition explores a period of time during the past six to eight years where her work evolved into an intriguing exploration of abstract vessels where function gives way to sculptural possibilities.”

Event Image Strengthening Scientific Reasoning Skills in Introductory Psychology
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Courtney Stevens and Melissa Witkow, Associate Professors of Psychology, will present their recent research: In this talk, we will describe our collaborative work over the past 5 years to develop and assess new materials to improve the training of scientific reasoning skills in introductory psychology. This work was initially inspired by changes to the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) to include psychology-focused questions. These questions highlighted the potential for introductory psychology to move beyond traditional content coverage to include stronger training of scientific reasoning skills, including data interpretation and research design. Our talk will cover a series of studies, moving from initial efforts in our own classes at Willamette to broader efforts involving other instructors at WU, as well as Chemeketa Community College and Oregon State University. The talk will highlight the course modules and assessment results, as well our design process. This work was funded by a Keck grant (iScience; PIs: Mark Stewart and Stas Stavrianeas) and an NSF-IUSE grant (PIs: Courtney Stevens, Melissa Witkow, and Kathy Becker-Blease).

Event Image Improvised Music and Dance with Makoto Matsushima and Mike Nord
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

SALEM, Ore.— On Saturday, April 22, at 7:30pm, the Center for Asian Studies in affiliation with Willamette University Music Department will present an evening of dance and music improvisations by the duo of Makoto Matsushima and Mike Nord in Smith Auditorium on the Willamette University campus.  

Dancer Makoto Matsushima from Tokyo, Japan performs movement and with his voice.  Mike Nord, a music professor at Willamette University, performs on guitar and electronics.  Now entering their eleventh year as collaborators, the pair have worked together as a duo and with the ensemble Noru Ka Soru Ka in the US, Japan, China, Hong Kong, and Switzerland.  Their eclectic mix of influences range from martial arts and modern theater to classical traditions, free jazz, and electronica.  Their improvised narrative work challenges traditional notions of category and style, smoothly moving between lyrical, comedic, meditative, and abstract moods.   The duo’s performances are neither Eastern or Western, but an evocative fusion of both that is accessible to audiences of all ages and cultures.

Makoto Matsushima has toured across the globe with the acclaimed Pappa Tarahumara dance theater and continues to tour throughout Asia performing in director Hiroshi Koike’s Bridge Project cycle. Matsushima has appeared as an independent choreographer and performer participating in residencies and festivals in New York, Berlin, Macao, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Seoul, and Amsterdam to list just a few. A noted teacher, clinician, and designer Makoto has served on the faculties of the Korea National University of the Arts in Seoul Korea, at Sugino Fashion University in Tokyo, Japan and At the Performing Arts Institute/Studio Arts Institute in Tokyo, Japan

Mike Nord records for Leo Records in England. His most recent recording tree, wind & flowers (Leo Records CDLR 747) features longtime collaborator percussionist Georg Hofmann flutist Andreas Stahel.  He also performs with the Willamette Underground trio featuring keyboardist/composer James Miley and drummer Ryan Biesack. Mike has collaborated on installation works with artist Ann Kresge including Vortices (2015) Landscapes (2014 ) and  Healing Forest (2009)  He has performed in Asia, Europe, Mexico, and the US.  Mike is a Professor of Music at Willamette University where he teaches courses in improvisation, digital production, and studio production.

For further information call Willamette University Department of Music at 503-370- 6255. This event is free and open to the public.

The History Department is please to present

“Most Blessed of the Patriarchs” with Annette Gordon-Reed, Harvard Law School and
Peter Onuf, University of Virginia (emeritus)

Historians shed light on private life of American “Patriarch” Thomas Jefferson

Willamette University is honored to announce a lecture by Annette Gordon-Reed, Charles Warren Professor of American Legal History at Harvard Law School; and Peter Onuf, Thomas Jefferson Professor Emeritus, Early American History, University of Virginia, and Senior Research Fellow at the Robert H. Smith International Center for Jefferson Studies (Monticello). Gordon-Reed and Onuf will present a lecture-conversation based on their recently co-authored biography of Thomas Jefferson, “Most Blessed of the Patriarchs”: Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of the Imagination. The lecture will take place on Monday, April 24 at 7:00 p.m. in the Hatfield Room (located on the 2nd floor of the Mark O. Hatfield Library).

Jefferson is often seen as being an enigmatic figure, riddled with contradictions. While lauded for his many achievements and contributions in the public and political spheres, some aspects of his life are more problematic and controversial. He was, without question, a complex person, who possessed a formidable intellect as well as a vibrant imagination. Primary author of the Declaration of Independence and founder of the University of Virginia, Jefferson was a polymath who mastered such diverse disciplines as mathematics, surveying, horticulture, mechanics, architecture, linguistics, religion, and philosophy. He spoke several languages and was a prolific letter-writer and correspondent. An outspoken proponent of freedom and equality who, during his brief practice as a lawyer, at times defended slaves seeking their freedom, he was also the owner of several plantations, worked by hundreds of slaves. (His intimate relationship with one of his slaves, Sally Hemings, is carefully documented in Gordon-Reed’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family.)

Gordon-Reed and Onuf maintain that in order to understand Jefferson’s career as a statesman, one must understand his private life. The authors suggest that Jefferson’s sense of himself and his vision of America’s republican future were shaped by his personal relationships—with enslaved people, family members, and friends and visitors to his plantation home in Monticello and to his other homes in Europe and America.

Though conflating comparisons of Self and Other within a racial context are surely not limited to the American Black Experience and can be examined in myriad global racial milieus, Jarrett’s work is typically centered upon deconstructing, defragmenting, and, in turn, reconstructing and reassembling her personal experiences as a Black woman in America into projects that ask viewers to consider their own roles in present-day race relations. Jarrett lives and works in Portland, Oregon, where she teaches classes in art and social practice at Portland State University’s School of Art + Design. She exhibits nationally and currently has work in the Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate exhibition.

After more than three decades of service to the students and community of Willamette University, Professor of Piano, Anita King will retire at the end of the 2017 Spring semester.  An accomplished artist and scholar, Dr. King brought a relentless dedication to artistic, intellectual, and personal growth to generations of students.  Beyond the classroom and studio she graced Willamette with numerous performances of solo works, chamber music, and orchestral pieces.  She brought Alexander Technique to our curriculum.  Dr. King initiated and curated the Grace Goudy Concert series which continues bringing world class artists performing the classical music of both Western and Eastern culture, along with outstanding Jazz Musicians.  While Professor King will be missed as a daily presence in Rogers Music Center, her legacy remains strong and vital.

Please join the Music department on Tuesday, April 25th at Noon in Hudson Hall for a short tribute, and for refreshments and visiting in the lobby from 12:15 to 1:00pm.  Cards are welcome and a guest book will be available to sign.  Contact Diane Trevett, dtrevett@willamette.edu, for more information.

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Seth Cotlar, Professor of History, will speak about his recent research. This talk will be drawn from my ongoing book project entitled "When The Olden Days Were New: A Cultural History of Nostalgia in Modernizing America, 1776-1860." In the 1820s and 1830s there emerged a new category of people--self-described "antiquaries" and lovers of "the olden times." By the 1840s, just about every town or county had a small community of quirky amateur historians. These librarians, bank clerks, widows, and lawyers collected old books and manuscripts, hoarded old tools and objects, donned "old fashioned" clothing, filled their houses with anachronistic furniture, drew sketches of old houses before they were about to be torn down, and regaled anyone who would listen with stories from "the olden days" that they had gleaned from their conversations with local octogenarians. In an era when most of their contemporaries could have cared less about history (Independence Hall, for example, was almost torn down and replaced with a more modern building in the 1820s), this community of eccentrics produced hundreds of local histories (such as this gripping, 400+ page history of Newbury, Newburyport, and West Newbury) and founded dozens of historical societies. This work matters, because the material they collected formed the foundation of the modern historical archive that we now use to reconstruct the history of early North America. In this talk, I will critically interrogate the nostalgic impulses that animated this work of recovery and preservation. For the most part, these builders of the archive have been looked down upon, if not entirely ignored, by professional historians because of their unseemly, melancholy attachment to objects and documents from the "obsolete" past. Their emotional investment in their work disqualified them as "serious" scholars for a profession eager to define itself as rigorously modern and empirical. But I argue that the melancholy, nostalgic sensibility of these early nineteenth century historians is precisely what enabled them to see certain features of the American past that many of their more forward-looking contemporaries wished to forget. Indeed, we are now able to tell more capacious and creative histories of early America today, in part, because of the radically inclusive work of preservation carried out by this first generation of nostalgic hoarders, and eccentric lovers of "the olden times."

Andersen (1960-2017) addressed the many hypocrisies of modern American life through his politically charged, irreverent, and whimsical mixed media assemblages. Andersen served as Exhibition Designer and Chief Preparator at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art from 2007-2016. Organized by Collection Curator Jonathan Bucci, the exhibition will feature a range of work created throughout Andersen’s career.
