10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition | Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco | June 3 - Aug 27
Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71

Against the radical and cultural watershed period of the 1960s, a new “psychedelic” culture, music, fashion and poster scene formed. Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his extensive personal collection in celebration of the 50th anniversary of “The Summer of Love,” this exhibition features more than 100 iconic posters, historic photographs, and related ephemera that highlight the development of the “psychedelic” art style. Twenty examples of clothing chart the influence of psychedelia on the worlds of both street and high fashion. The exhibition will also feature a light show by Bill Ham who created the revolutionary swirling backdrops to many legendary rock concerts of the time. This exhibition is accompanied by a variety of lectures, films, and gallery talks, as well as a children’s art camp. 

Two small companion exhibitions have been planned as well. The Study Gallery will be all aglow with the exhibition Turned On!: American Blacklight Posters, 1967-71, opening May 13 and continuing through July 16.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea 
July 29 - October 22, 2017
Study Gallery

Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and is home to a rich and diverse artistic tradition that includes sculpture, masks, dance ornaments, bark cloth, utensils, and vessels. Many of these objects are used ritualistically in great feasts, exchanges, and dance performances to capture and maintain spiritual power.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea features a number of objects collected by anthropologist David Eisler in Papua New Guinea in the early 1970s and gifted by him to the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in 2014. 

As a special feature, Eisler will give an illustrated lecture on the concept of spiritual power in the art and culture of Papua New Guinea on September 7. Admission to the lecture is complimentary.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition | The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints | May 13 - Oct 22
The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71

Against the radical and cultural watershed period of the 1960s, a new “psychedelic” culture, music, fashion and poster scene formed. Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his extensive personal collection in celebration of the 50th anniversary of “The Summer of Love,” this exhibition features more than 100 iconic posters, historic photographs, and related ephemera that highlight the development of the “psychedelic” art style. Twenty examples of clothing chart the influence of psychedelia on the worlds of both street and high fashion. The exhibition will also feature a light show by Bill Ham who created the revolutionary swirling backdrops to many legendary rock concerts of the time. This exhibition is accompanied by a variety of lectures, films, and gallery talks, as well as a children’s art camp. 

Two small companion exhibitions have been planned as well. The Study Gallery will be all aglow with the exhibition Turned On!: American Blacklight Posters, 1967-71, opening May 13 and continuing through July 16.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea 
July 29 - October 22, 2017

Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and is home to a rich and diverse artistic tradition that includes sculpture, masks, dance ornaments, bark cloth, utensils, and vessels. Many of these objects are used ritualistically in great feasts, exchanges, and dance performances to capture and maintain spiritual power.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea features a number of objects collected by anthropologist David Eisler in Papua New Guinea in the early 1970s and gifted by him to the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in 2014. 

As a special feature, Eisler will give an illustrated lecture on the concept of spiritual power in the art and culture of Papua New Guinea on September 7. Admission to the lecture is complimentary.

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM Eclipses, Earthquakes, Tsunamis, and Volcanoes: Can History Prepare Us?
History in the News
Willamette Heritage Center
Thursday, August 17
5:30-7:00 pm

Social media experts forecast that the total solar eclipse of August 21 will be “the most photographed, most shared, most tweeted event in human history,” while highway authorities predict that the days surrounding the eclipse could see the greatest temporary mass migration of humans to see a natural event in U.S. history. Oregonians are steeling themselves for the arrival of perhaps a million visitors, and attendant stresses on highway, sanitation, and cell phone systems; the Governor has even called out the National Guard in advance to handle crowds, traffic, and fires.

This History in the News panel considers the eclipse, and other monumental natural phenomena such as volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis, in social and historical perspective. How did people in our region anticipate and respond to such cataclysmic or cosmic events in the past? Did such events have long term effects on lives and landscapes here? How have they been incorporated into communities’ cultural memories and historical narratives? Does history offer us lessons on how to predict and prepare for such occurrences?

Panelists will include
Astronomer and Williams College Professor Jay Pasachoff, Chair of the International Astronomical Union’s Working Group on Eclipses and a veteran of 65 previous solar eclipses, who is also leading an observational team on the Willamette campus for the eclipse.

Anthropologist Dr. Jason Younker, Assistant Vice President and Advisor to the President on Sovereignty and Government to Government Relations at the University of Oregon, whose scholarship includes work on Coquille oral histories of tsunamis.

Artist, poet, and writer Christine Colasurdo, author of Return to Spirit Lake: Life and Landscapes at Mt. St. Helens (2016) and contributor to In the Blast Zone: Catastrophe and Renewal on Mt. St. Helens (2008).
Moderated by Dr. Leslie Dunlap, History Department, American Ethnic Studies and Women's and Gender Studies Programs

Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71

Against the radical and cultural watershed period of the 1960s, a new “psychedelic” culture, music, fashion and poster scene formed. Organized by artist Gary Westford and drawn from his extensive personal collection in celebration of the 50th anniversary of “The Summer of Love,” this exhibition features more than 100 iconic posters, historic photographs, and related ephemera that highlight the development of the “psychedelic” art style. Twenty examples of clothing chart the influence of psychedelia on the worlds of both street and high fashion. The exhibition will also feature a light show by Bill Ham who created the revolutionary swirling backdrops to many legendary rock concerts of the time. This exhibition is accompanied by a variety of lectures, films, and gallery talks, as well as a children’s art camp. 

Two small companion exhibitions have been planned as well. The Study Gallery will be all aglow with the exhibition Turned On!: American Blacklight Posters, 1967-71, opening May 13 and continuing through July 16. Continue into the Print Study Center for more fun with The 1960s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

Start Day Creating Problems LARC Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)
Please mark your calendar for the Creating Problems LARC Exhibition on September 7th - 12th in the Student Art Gallery (Art 211). On September 7th, the Creating Problems LARC Group will host a Math Colloquium in Art room 212 from 4:10-5:10pm, and host a reception for their art exhibition in Art 211 from 5:10-6:10pm. Creating Problems was an experiment-driven, studio-based Math/Art experience (with faculty Cayla Skillin-Brauchle and Josh Liaison). The LARC students and faculty first worked together on a series of exploratory mathematical problems and artistic prompts to create common ground, enable critical conversation and fuel collaboration. Their early meetings included lively conversations about formal mathematical definitions versus artistic interpretations (e.g. symmetry), the visualization of systems and patterns, and the spectrum from abstraction (e.g. theoretical) to realism (e.g. analytical). Students and faculty then pursued individual and collaborative projects based in a full spectrum of artistic and mathematical thinking. Participants discovered that that artists and mathematicians use similar language and creative problem-solving processes, yet the different ways that they employ that language and those processes yield vastly different outcomes. Come and see and hear about the student and faculty projects that resulted from that discovery.

Title: The Promises and Pitfalls of Engaging Male Juvenile Offenders in Gender Violence Prevention and Bystander Education Presenter: Jade Aguilar, Assoc. Prof of Sociology and VP for Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Drawing on interviews with and observations of boys enrolled in a bystander violence prevention program at a juvenile detention center, this article provides a sociological case study on how the boys’ biographies and violent lived experiences shaped their engagement with the program. Previous research on bystander prevention programs has typically focused on men enrolled in college who do not have the same kinds of violent histories as the boys in this study do. This article builds upon prior research on prevention programs by demonstrating how at-risk youth participants understand and access the program. We offer suggestions for tailoring bystander prevention programs to more adequately address the specific needs of these populations.

All Day Creating Problems LARC Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)
Please mark your calendar for the Creating Problems LARC Exhibition on September 7th - 12th in the Student Art Gallery (Art 211). On September 7th, the Creating Problems LARC Group will host a Math Colloquium in Art room 212 from 4:10-5:10pm, and host a reception for their art exhibition in Art 211 from 5:10-6:10pm. Creating Problems was an experiment-driven, studio-based Math/Art experience (with faculty Cayla Skillin-Brauchle and Josh Liaison). The LARC students and faculty first worked together on a series of exploratory mathematical problems and artistic prompts to create common ground, enable critical conversation and fuel collaboration. Their early meetings included lively conversations about formal mathematical definitions versus artistic interpretations (e.g. symmetry), the visualization of systems and patterns, and the spectrum from abstraction (e.g. theoretical) to realism (e.g. analytical). Students and faculty then pursued individual and collaborative projects based in a full spectrum of artistic and mathematical thinking. Participants discovered that that artists and mathematicians use similar language and creative problem-solving processes, yet the different ways that they employ that language and those processes yield vastly different outcomes. Come and see and hear about the student and faculty projects that resulted from that discovery.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea 
July 29 - October 22, 2017
Study Gallery

Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and is home to a rich and diverse artistic tradition that includes sculpture, masks, dance ornaments, bark cloth, utensils, and vessels. Many of these objects are used ritualistically in great feasts, exchanges, and dance performances to capture and maintain spiritual power.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea features a number of objects collected by anthropologist David Eisler in Papua New Guinea in the early 1970s and gifted by him to the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in 2014. 

As a special feature, Eisler will give an illustrated lecture on the concept of spiritual power in the art and culture of Papua New Guinea on September 7. Admission to the lecture is complimentary.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition | The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints | May 13 - Oct 22
The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

Dr. Claudia Moser
Assistant Professor, History of Art and Architecture
University of California, Santa Barbara

This talk focuses on S. Omobono, an Archaic and Republican sanctuary in Rome, and explores what we can learn about Roman sacrifice through study of the material remains of sacrifice and the architectural settings in which the ritual occurs. I will argue that by examining the material record of sacrifice -- the aniconic altars of the Republican period, their relations to the natural and built landscape, and the accompanying archaeological evidence of the ritual -- we can form a comprehensive view of the procedure of sacrificial ritual, detailing aspects of the practice that might be absent from or inconsistent with what is found in images or texts. In this talk, I will integrate various types of evidence (topographic and architectural evidence, zooarchaeological material, and votive crafted goods) to reveal a sacrifice that is intricately linked to the sanctuary in which it is enacted, a sacrifice that is local and site-specific.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition | Crow's Shadow Institute of the Arts at 25 | Sept. 16 - Dec. 22
Organized by the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in partnership with the Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts (CSIA), the exhibition chronicles the history of Crow’s Shadow over the past 25 years as it has emerged as an important printmaking studio located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation near Pendleton, Oregon.

The exhibition features 75 prints drawn from the Crow’s Shadow Print Archive and focuses on themes of landscape, abstraction, portraiture, word and images, and media and process. Included in the exhibition are works by 50 Native and non-Native artists who have worked at CSIA, including Rick Bartow, Pat Boas, Joe Feddersen, Edgar Heap of Birds, James Lavadour, Truman Lowe, Lillian Pitt, Wendy Red Star, Storm Tharp, and Marie Watt, among others.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition | The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints | May 13 - Oct 22
The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

Frost History Lecture
Some Historical Lessons from the Transpacific Western: Clint Eastwood and Lee Sang-il Lecture by Takashi Fujitani, Professor of History and Dr. David Chu Chair in Asian-Pacific Studies at the Univeristy of Toronto In this presentation Prof. Fujitani reads Clint Eastwood’s critically acclaimed Unforgiven (1992) against Lee Sang-il’s “remake” of the original (Yurusarezaru mono, 2013). While the few Anglophone critics who have reviewed Lee’s version have generally treated it as a competent but fairly unremarkable copy of the original, Fujitani argues that the film, set in Hokkaidō, is in many ways a far more radical and challenging exploration of key themes taken up by Eastwood that are of interest for those who study the past and its effects in the present. These include violence, law, the outlaw, sovereign power, the right to kill, and historical memory and accountability. At the same time, Lee takes up several issues that Eastwood simply leaves as background to his story -- in particular race, indigeneity, and settler colonialism. While the Western has been a staple genre in Eastwood’s long career leading up to Unforgiven, Yurusarezaru mono is the first and so far only Western made by the much younger Lee. Lee’s first film, Chong (1998, 2001), is in part based upon his own life growing up as an ethnic Korean in Japan. His more well-known films include Hula Girl (2006), The Villain (Akunin, 2010), and Rage (Ikari, 2016).

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM History in the News Panel
Whose Monuments? Whose Memory? As national controversy rages over whether and how to remove statues memorializing the Confederacy, communities across the country are beginning to consider the meaning and significance of public memorials, buildings, streets, schools, and teams in their own places. Oregon State University, for example, is in the process of conducting community meetings to reevaluate buildings named after a pro-slavery newspaperman, a Confederate army soldier, and a coach who resisted desegregation of the basketball team.

This History in the News panel discussion considers these debates over historical monuments and memory, and the broader questions they raise about the complex history of colonialism, racism and white supremacist imagery in American culture.
  • When and what was the process to establish these memorials in the first place?
  • Does removing statues or renaming buildings erase history?
  • What do historians, preservationists and educators have to say about this?
  • Is there disagreement in their fields?
  • Does removing statues and renaming buildings and teams begin a “slippery slope,” as some critics have argued?
Panelists:

The exhibition features 75 prints drawn from the Crow’s Shadow Print Archive and focuses on themes of landscape, abstraction, portraiture, word and images, and media and process.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition | The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints | May 13 - Oct 22
The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

Presenter: Shatha Almutawa,Assistant Professor of Religious Studies Title: “Do Muslims Dance Tango?” Religion, Secularism, and the Body in Post-Coup Turkey Every night in the city of Istanbul, hundreds of men and women gather in dance studios, hotels, nightclubs, and on rooftops to dance the Argentine tango. The communities of tango dancers in Turkey are known to be among the largest—if not the largest—communities in the world outside of Argentina. Turkish tango dancers are renowned for their skill and are known around the world to dance beautifully and with passion. Sensual and intimate, tango is often danced in a close embrace and requires interactions between men and women that are not always compatible with the norms of Turkish society. This talk draws on fieldwork in Turkey and interviews with tango dancers in Istanbul about their histories with tango, their relationships to their religion, and their perceptions of the two cultures to which they belong: Turkish culture and Argentine tango culture. In a country that was founded as a secular republic, Muslims dance tango under the portrait of Atatürk, which has become an important symbol of resistance as Turkey undergoes a government-sponsored religious revival.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea features a number of objects collected by anthropologist David Eisler in Papua New Guinea in the early 1970s and gifted by him to the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in 2014. 

As a special feature, Eisler will give an illustrated lecture on the concept of spiritual power in the art and culture of Papua New Guinea on September 7. Admission to the lecture is complimentary.

The exhibition features 75 prints drawn from the Crow’s Shadow Print Archive and focuses on themes of landscape, abstraction, portraiture, word and images, and media and process. Included in the exhibition are works by 50 Native and non-Native artists who have worked at CSIA, including Rick Bartow, Pat Boas, Joe Feddersen, Edgar Heap of Birds, James Lavadour, Truman Lowe, Lillian Pitt, Wendy Red Star, Storm Tharp, and Marie Watt, among others.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition | The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints | May 13 - Oct 22
The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Faculty Colloquium: Ortwin Knorr
Please join us Friday, September 29nd at 3 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge for our third Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Treats will be provided. Presenter: Ortwin Knorr, Associate Professor of Classics Title: Using Digital Technology in Teaching a College Colloquium about Film Integrating digital technology into one’s own teaching can be relatively simple yet pay great dividends, as my experience with my College Colloquium, “Ancient Greece and Rome in the Movies,” may demonstrate. In this presentation, I will discuss my use of simple Powerpoints for pre- and post-tests as well as short lectures on visual concepts; the use of a course blog to draw out more reserved students and to start a discussion outside of class; writing assignments that are tied to existing contributor-fed sites such as the Internet Movie Database (imdb); and the final course project, the students’ creation of their own illustrated website about a movie or movie-related topic of their choice, using free and easy-to-learn software like weebly or wix. Students are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there. Ellen Eisenberg and Bill Kelm Faculty Colloquium Coordinators

8:00 PM - 10:00 PM Jordy Searcy: Concert and Tea!

Join WEB for a night of incredible music and delicious tea! Enjoy music by Nashville artist Jordy Searcy accompanied by tea and treats.

Jordy Searcy is one of the best new voices you'll hear, but beyond that, he knows how to write and perform in a way that really showcases his pipes. All of the coaches on The Voice had something good to say about him when he climbed the ranks of the television singing competition in 2014, and he used the momentum from the show to launch an extensive tour of the Southeast.

The tour went a little different than most first tours do, and that’s because it was filled with established fans that were bursting at the seams to hear more new music from Jordy. But because he only wears shoes when he skateboards, and his hairy vegan drummer named Scooter loyally follows him on the road, first timers have plenty to get excited about as well.

Jordy eventually landed in Nashville, TN, and that’s where you’ll find him absorbing the world around him and turning it into things like Seasons, his debut EP. Seasons shot up to #5 on Apple Music and #7 on iTunes singer/songwriter charts, and his fans aren’t subtle about wanting more. But quality wins over quantity for Jordy, so he’ll continue to perform his new music night after night, for 15 people or 15 million, until he finds the songs that really stick.

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Frost History Lecture
Some Historical Lessons from the Transpacific Western: Clint Eastwood and Lee Sang-il Lecture by Takashi Fujitani, Professor of History and Dr. David Chu Chair in Asian-Pacific Studies at the Univeristy of Toronto In this presentation Prof. Fujitani reads Clint Eastwood’s critically acclaimed Unforgiven (1992) against Lee Sang-il’s “remake” of the original (Yurusarezaru mono, 2013). While the few Anglophone critics who have reviewed Lee’s version have generally treated it as a competent but fairly unremarkable copy of the original, Fujitani argues that the film, set in Hokkaidō, is in many ways a far more radical and challenging exploration of key themes taken up by Eastwood that are of interest for those who study the past and its effects in the present. These include violence, law, the outlaw, sovereign power, the right to kill, and historical memory and accountability. At the same time, Lee takes up several issues that Eastwood simply leaves as background to his story -- in particular race, indigeneity, and settler colonialism. While the Western has been a staple genre in Eastwood’s long career leading up to Unforgiven, Yurusarezaru mono is the first and so far only Western made by the much younger Lee. Lee’s first film, Chong (1998, 2001), is in part based upon his own life growing up as an ethnic Korean in Japan. His more well-known films include Hula Girl (2006), The Villain (Akunin, 2010), and Rage (Ikari, 2016).

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM "Not Written in Stone: What Archaeological Basketry Tells Us About America's First People
Tom Connolly
Director of Archaeological Research
UO Museum of Natural & Cultural History & State Museum of Anthropology
University of Oregon

Some of the largest, most ancient, and diverse collections of fiber artifacts in the world are from the northern and western Great Basin of North America. Many of these materials—including basketry, netting, and woven sandals—were collected under poorly controlled conditions during the early 20th century. Thanks to advances in radiocarbon dating, it is now possible to produce highly accurate ages using minute samples that don’t damage the overall integrity of the dated specimens. The results of ongoing dating efforts confirm that these North American collections include some of the world’s oldest fiber artifacts, provide the means to place items in their proper chronological context, and give us clearer occupation histories for the sites from which they were recovered.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea 
July 29 - October 22, 2017
Study Gallery

Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and is home to a rich and diverse artistic tradition that includes sculpture, masks, dance ornaments, bark cloth, utensils, and vessels. Many of these objects are used ritualistically in great feasts, exchanges, and dance performances to capture and maintain spiritual power.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea features a number of objects collected by anthropologist David Eisler in Papua New Guinea in the early 1970s and gifted by him to the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in 2014. 

As a special feature, Eisler will give an illustrated lecture on the concept of spiritual power in the art and culture of Papua New Guinea on September 7. Admission to the lecture is complimentary.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition | Crow's Shadow Institute of the Arts at 25 | Sept. 16 - Dec. 22
Organized by the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in partnership with the Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts (CSIA), the exhibition chronicles the history of Crow’s Shadow over the past 25 years as it has emerged as an important printmaking studio located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation near Pendleton, Oregon.

The exhibition features 75 prints drawn from the Crow’s Shadow Print Archive and focuses on themes of landscape, abstraction, portraiture, word and images, and media and process. Included in the exhibition are works by 50 Native and non-Native artists who have worked at CSIA, including Rick Bartow, Pat Boas, Joe Feddersen, Edgar Heap of Birds, James Lavadour, Truman Lowe, Lillian Pitt, Wendy Red Star, Storm Tharp, and Marie Watt, among others.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition | The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints | May 13 - Oct 22
The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Faculty Colloquium: Nathan Sivers Boyce
Please join us Friday, October 6 at 3 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge for our fourth Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Treats will be provided. Presenter: Nathan Sivers Boyce, Associate Professor of Economics Title: Economics Curricular Reform at Willamette University In August 2014 Willamette University began offering a new economics curriculum. The purpose of this paper is to describe it in more detail and explain our rationale for adopting it. Key changes include commitments to: begin with economic issues that motivate questions for analysis; incorporate the history of economic thought in a systematic way and embrace explicit pluralism. We argue that designing an explicitly pluralist curriculum requires determining how to organize economic thought, how to structure the curriculum to embed pluralism, and how to embody pluralism in the core courses. Our approach to pluralism organizes economic thought according to a “grand traditions” approach and is fully integrated into the curriculum, developing multiple perspectives side-by-side in each course. We argue that these reforms will help us better prepare students for independent, critical inquiry into economic issues. Students are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM Deciphering a Treasure of the Silk Road: Complexity as the Key in Identification of the Ordos Seals
Andrea J. Chen, Research Fellow, University Museum and Art Gallery
University of Hong Kong

The Mongolian Nestorians were a mysterious group of people who embraced Christianity under the influence of the Church of the East, as it was disseminated along the Silk Road. Notwithstanding the fact that their material tradition is highly valued as representative of the Silk Road material history, the study of this subject has remained relatively stagnant, because artefacts in this category have been considered insufficient. Yet there are thousands of so-called Nestorian Crosses (or Nestorian Seals) existing globally, waiting for systematic identification and interpretation. Thus, the current concern would be: 1) Do all these artefacts belong to the authentic cultural heritage of Mongolian Nestorians? 2) Can we find any existing study of Mongolian Nestorianism, or Jingjiao (Chinese Nestorianism), to support the identification? And 3) if some of them are proved to be pertinent, would this discovery benefit, and in what way, the hitherto under-developed study of this field?

This lecture, based on the above notes, will firstly provide a comprehensive introduction to Mongolian Nestorianism, Jingjiao, and their material culture. Secondly, it will screen some representative samples from the Nixon collection of the so-called Nestorian Seals, which is the largest collection of this kind in the world. With these samples, it will introduce laboratory results from recently conducted XRF examinations, as the most important archaeological evidence showing that the complexity of the collection should not be underestimated. On the contrary, it could be critical to the identification of the objects. And last but not least, this lecture will suggest for the first time, a new name for the bronzes, as “Ordos Seals” and give reasons for the naming.

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Faculty Colloquium: Marva Duerksen
Please join us Friday, October 13 at 3 p.m. in Fine Arts West 145 for our fifth Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Treats will be provided. Presenter: Marva Duerksen, Associate Professor of Music Title: Proleptic Rhetoric and Survival of the “Self”: Composer Niccoló Castiglioni On Dickinson’s “I heard a Fly buzz—” In “I heard a fly buzz – when I died,” poet Emily Dickinson adopts a proleptic, or anticipatory, rhetorical stance from which to probe haunting questions of death and the boundaries separating death from life. The poem’s speaker, an implicit self, dies, and yet, impossibly, survives to narrate the story of their death. In this presentation I examine Italian composer Niccoló Castiglioni’s interpretation of Dickinson’s “Fly,” focusing on ways in which the composer builds on Dickinson’s poetic design to craft a musical self, position that self within a musical space, and support or engineer its demise. Broadening the inquiry, I consider the stakes for poet and composer. If proleptic positioning supports an enduring poetic self, might it not also point to Dickinson’s desire for survival beyond death of her own creative self? And, as composers take up this proleptic self musically, could they be engaging ongoing anxieties about the survival of our own artistic and embodied selves?

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM Grace Goudy Distinguished Artist Series: Master Class for Voice

Julianne Baird, soprano will give a master classes for Willamette University voice students on Tuesday, October 17th, 2:00pm on the stage of Hudson Hall.  Admission is free and all are welcome to attend and observe.

Through her “Songbook,” Jane Austen springs to life: her likes and dislikes, her boisterous sense of humor, her passions and her true nature. The Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series is proud to open its 2017-18 season with Julianne Baird, a soprano the New York Times has hailed as a “national artistic treasure,” returning for the third time in a collaboration with fortepianist Marcia Hadjimarkos. Together, they will present a completely unique program at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18.

By 1770, the fortepiano had to a large degree replaced the harpsichord, and Austen, as part of the education expected of that generation of young women, had acquired more than a passing knowledge of music and contemporary composition. Her insights, tastes and interests were reflected in what we might today refer to as a “mixtape,” an anthology of one’s favorite compositions for a friend. This is Austen’s “Songbook.” Baird and Hadjimarkos have created a superb and imaginative program of musical works, along with readings from Austen’s novels, in order to bring her favorite music, and thus her spirit, back to life.

Hadjimarkos is performing on an instrument, the fortepiano, whose new dynamic range and subtlety of response can be seen as a metaphor joining the worlds of music and literature. Her playing is described in Diapason: “Beyond the wondrous sensitivity of her touch, two elements stand out: Her very flexible approach to rhythm and her witty, sometimes daringly profuse and yet always-idiomatic ornamentation. In short, this is the most satisfying playing of Mozart I have heard in a long time.”

Baird was described by the Washington Post as having “exquisite instrument which she uses with the intelligence of a scholar … the best voice of any living musicologist.” She is also an accomplished teacher who regularly gives master classes at Yale, Juilliard and Oberlin.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Exhibition | The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints | May 13 - Oct 22
The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D.

The Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series is proud to begin its 2017-2018 season Wednesday night, October 18th, 7:30 pm, with Julianne Baird, a soprano the New York Times has hailed as a "national artistic treasure" returning for the 3rd time in a collaboration with forte pianist Marcia Hadjimarkos. Together they present a completely unique program.

By 1770 the fortepiano had, to a large degree replaced the harpsichord, and Jane Austen as part of the education expected of that generation of young women, acquired considerably more than a passing knowledge of music and to the making of a "mix tape"- an anthology of one's favorite compositions for a friend.

We are fortunate to invite back to Willamette these superlative artists. Marcia Hadjimarkos is performing on an instrument, the fortepiano, whose new dynamic range and subtlety of response can be seen as a metaphor joining the worlds of music and literature. Her playing is described in Diapason; "Beyond the wondrous sensitivity of her touch, two elements stand out: her very flexible approach to rhythm, and her witty, sometimes daringly profuse and yet always idiomatic ornamentation.

Julianne Baird, whom the Washington Post describes as having "exquisite instrument which she uses with the intelligence of a scholar... the best voice of any living musicologist," and Marcia Hadjimarkos will also present, as part of their residency, a master-class for singers Tuesday October 17th at 2:00 pm on the stage of Hudson Hall at Willamette University.

As a special feature, Eisler will give an illustrated lecture on the concept of spiritual power in the art and culture of Papua New Guinea on September 7. Admission to the lecture is complimentary.

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM Film: Agents of Change
From the well-publicized events at San Francisco State in 1968 to the image of black students with guns emerging from the takeover of the student union at Cornell University in April, 1969, the struggle for a more relevant and meaningful education, including demands for black and ethnic studies programs, became a clarion call across the country in the late 1960's. Through the stories of these young men and women who were at the forefront of these efforts, Agents of Change examines the untold story of the racial conditions on college campuses and in the country that led to these protests. The film’s characters were caught at the crossroads of the civil rights, black power, and anti-Vietnam war movements at a pivotal time in America’s history. Today, over 45 years later, many of the same demands are surfacing in campus protests across the country, revealing how much work remains to be done.

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM "Wonderwerk Cave: Archaeology at the Edge of the Kalahari"
AIA Lecture Series

Michael Chazan
Professor, Department of Anthropology
Director, Archaeology Center
University of Toronto

The town of Kuruman or Ga-Sagonyana is at the edge of the Kalahari in the Northern Cape Province.  The archaeology of this region is an extraordinarily rich record of human presence over a period of two million years.  The lecturer will present the experience of working in this fascinating part of the world and the results of research at the site of Wonderwerk Cave where he co-directs a project that has documented the earliest known evidence of cave occupation by human ancestors.  This talk will give a sense of what it is like to do archaeology in a society experiencing dramatic social change, as South Africa experiences the transformation from apartheid.  At the same time the current state of research—what we have learned and what we are still struggling to understand—will be presented for Wonderwerk and also for the neighboring sites of Kathu Pan and Canteen Kopje.

More specifically, the workshop introduced the non-initiate to the philosophy, theory, and practicalities of encoding original texts in XML (Extensible Markup Language) using the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines. During the workshop, I began to encode several pages of a 17th-century Carib-French dictionary with the XML Editor Oxygen. This presentation will first give an overview of Breton’s dictionary, then delve into my experience at the workshop, and describe the use I’ve been making of the text and project in FREN 336.
