Event Image Imagining the Atacama Desert
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Richard V. Francaviglia, Professor Emeritus, will speak about his recent research. Through the analysis of maps and written narratives he will demonstrate how the Atacama Desert of South America was discovered, and then re-discovered, over nearly five centuries in a series of sequential phases. From about 1530 to 1700, “Atacama” designated a remote but strategic political province whose lack of population rather than desert climate was emphasized. After about 1700, however, the Atacama began to be identified as an arid region as a result of increasingly scientific mapping and exploration. In this transitional phase, the Atacama was part of a broader pattern in which the political mapping of empires was gradually supplemented by thematic physical or scientific mapmaking. In the third stage, which began in the mid-1830s, the Atacama Desert became linked to increasingly strong nationalist impulses and the rapidly growing power of international corporate developments in transportation and mineral extraction. In the fourth and current stage, which began about 1945, the Atacama began to be promoted and marketed as the quintessential desert worth experiencing for its uniqueness — something early explorers would have found incomprehensible. Past, present, and future, the Atacama reveals much about how places are discovered, and then re-discovered, through time.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Tuesday, Feb. 7, 7:30 p.m.
Hallie Ford Museum of Art — Room 215


DR. DIANA NG, ASSOC. PROFESSOR OF ART HISTORY, UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN-DEARBORN The city of Perge in the Roman Pamphylia (modern Turkey) boasted a number of highly decorated urban amenities—like city gates and fountains—that were typical in the Roman Empire. This talk will examine these buildings and their sculptural decoration in the context of the heated intercity rivalries of the 2nd and 3rd centuries CE. Private patrons and public priorities merged together to make a case for Perge’s primacy among its regional rivals, relying on the illustrious legendary beginnings of the city and its widely known cult of Artemis. Diana Y. Ng is an Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, specializing in Roman art and archaeology. Her interests are centered on questions of civic and elite identities, benefaction, and memory. This year, she is an Associated Scholar with the Department of Art History at Willamette University (Salem, Oregon).

Event Image Prosody and Time in Musical Settings of Emily Dickinson
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Marva G. Duerksen, Associate Professor of Music, Women's & Gender Studies, will speak about her recent research. Musical settings of Emily Dickinson’s poems—some 3,000 by one collector’s reckoning—comprise a core component of the American art-song repertory and a sustained and wide-ranging constituent of her reception. That said, a mutually insightful conversation between musical and literary scholarly communities lies largely untapped, most especially in that facet of Dickinson’s poems that she herself highlights conspicuously and that constitutes a shared concern in both poetry and music: prosody, and its companion, time. Several questions arise: how can literary prosodic method inform analysis of musical settings of her works? And, what insights can composers offer the literary community as they interpret the poet’s rhythmic and metric designs? More specifically, how do composers execute in music signal elements of Dickinson’s prosody—the familiar “dash,” a startling approach to rhyme, disruptions of conventional grammar, and idiosyncratic lineation? Then, how do composers’ renderings of such features through specially tempered rhythmic pacing, multi-layered rhythmic designs, and heterogeneous musical vocabularies in turn impact our comprehension of the disruptions endemic to her work? Finally, how can these analyses inform the categories of time—diachronic and synchronic—vital to Dickinson’s poetic project? Exploring these questions through literary models and musical settings by composers Ernst Bacon, Vincent Persichetti, and Niccoló Castiglioni provides a starting point for the dialogue proposed here.

This will be CTCA’s 3rd annual Lunar New Year event (春節). We have invited traditional Chinese musicians, Wushu Team and Lion Dance Team to perform at our celebration this year. This event is free for everyone. There will be food, entertainment and games! Lunar New Year (also known as Chinese New Year and Spring Festival) is an extremely important holiday to many Eastern countries. This festival is celebrated throughout 15 days in Chinese culture; every day honors a different aspect/superstition of the holiday, all focusing on maximizing the chance of wealth, luck, and health in the new year. CTCA prides itself on promoting cultural awareness and we believe that this event is essential to our mission. Although we cannot host an extensive 15-day event as in China and Taiwan, we can at least try to host a celebration at Willamette University that can capture a fraction of the fun and excitement that is Lunar New Year.

12:30 PM - 2:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Law Students, Faculty, and Community Legal Workers Welcome! At this training taught by the Civil Liberties Defense Center (CLDC), learn how to support local activists by becoming a trained legal observer (LO). The neon green caps of National Lawyers Guild LOs are a fixture at nearly every protest - LOs have been on the scene at actions from civil rights demonstrations in the 1960’s to #BlackLivesMatter protests in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square and alongside the people of the Standing Rock Reservation as they oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline #DAPL. Legal Observer training gives you an understanding of the legal issues that often arise out of mass actions and how to be an effective on-the-ground force defending people's rights. The NLG Legal Observer (LO) program was established in 1968 in NYC in response to protests at Columbia University and city-wide antiwar and civil rights demonstrations. The NLG LO program is part of a comprehensive system of legal support designed to enable people to express their political views as fully as possible without unconstitutional disruption. LOs are typically law students, legal workers and lawyers.

Event Image Lear's Daughters (PREVIEW)
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Originally devised in 1987 by the Women’s Theatre Group in collaboration with Elaine Feinstein, Lear’s Daughters tells the story of what happened to King Lear’s daughters, Goneril, Regan and Cordelia, before they made their entrances in Shakespeare’s classic play. The daughters, isolated from their busy parents, find themselves under the care of a nanny who brings sustenance in the form of storytelling. This provocative play explores innocence turned to tragic cynicism. It is a playful but serious modern parable for our time.

Seeing the Unseen in Homer’s Iliad (Rumpakis Lecture)

Dr. Hayden Pelliccia
Cornell University

The Homeric narrator sees things that we, his audience, would have seen had we been on the scene, and things we would not have seen, e.g., the gods. Sometimes the narrative allows entities belonging to the unseen world to move into the seen world (or vice-versa): a god can make him-/herself visible to ordinary mortals, for example (epiphany). The quasi-theological rules that govern this arrangement are also rules for the visualization of the action, as proposed for tragic poets by Aristotle (Poetics ch. 17). In this talk I will explain and illustrate the Homeric rules as they normally operate, and then look at some places where they are put under strain. I will also consider some early evidence for audience awareness of the rules.

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

We are a coalition of student organizations concerned about instances of racism in our communities, especially in light of the recent executive actions taken against Muslim immigrants and the undocumented. We have been working diligently to heighten awareness of racism and racial injustice here in our own community. We believe this work is more important now than at any other point in our lifetimes. We invite you, our friends, classmates, and colleagues, to join us for an anti-racism training. Led by attorneys who are students of racial justice themselves, you will learn concepts and skills for recognizing and interrupting instances of racism when you encounter them in your community. Our goal is to bring people to the table, not to call anyone out or shame anyone. If you feel uncomfortable talking about race, this training is for you. If you have ever seen something in the community you thought was racist but didn't know what to do, this training is for you. If you are concerned about the safety of your diverse community in an increasingly agitated and hostile society, this training is for you. If you are skeptical about whether racism still exists, this training is definitely for you. Because each session builds on the prior one, we are asking attendees to please commit to all three sessions, on February 17, March 15, and April 5. To accommodate people's busy schedules, the sessions will be held over the lunch hour, from 12:30 - 1:30, and food will be provided. Please see the attached flyer for more information. To register, or for further inquiry, please e-mail willamette.acs@gmail.com or reach out to student organization leaders. We hope to see many of you there!
Event Image “Un train peut en cacher un autre”: Gender and Mobility in Cather and Zola
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Deirdre Sennott, Visiting Assistant Professor of French, will speak about her recent research.

In Trains, Literature, and Culture: Reading the Rails, Steven D. Spalding and Benjamin Fraser contend that “[t]hrough literary and visual representations, artists have imagined the train as a contradictory symbol of both modern anxiety and potential freedom” (x). This is certainly the case in Émile Zola’s La Bête humaine (1890)—The Human Beast—where trains and the rail system take center stage, and Zola highlights both the complex ways new technologies affect daily life and the prevailing injustices that temper any possible idealism from these changes. Twenty-five years later, Willa Cather would publish The Song of the Lark, which could aptly be called her “rail novel.” Much research has pointed to the influence of French writers on Cather, in particular Balzac, but Zola’s influence has been largely dismissed, perhaps due to her ambivalence towards his writing at various moments in her journalistic career. This study contends that Cather’s novel engages directly with Zola’s La Bête humaine in an implicit critique of modern gender relations. I focus on the protagonist Thea Kronberg’s initial train journey to Chicago, during which she witnesses fearful female travelers, in contrast to her own joyful independence. In contrast, Zola depicts in La Bête humaine the first modern serial killer in fiction, the railway worker Jacques Lantier, in a neglected scene during which Jacques chooses among potential victims on an express train from Paris. I argue that The Song of the Lark functions as a reworking and challenge of this scene particularly in terms of how the two authors depict the female train traveler, a symbol of the anxieties of the long nineteenth century surrounding women’s growing freedom. Like the French rail warning sign, “one train may hide another”—Cather’s more idealistic train a representation that is in dialogue with Zola’s earlier portrayal of rail travel.

Secrets of the Ness of Brodgar

A Stone-Age Complex in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site

(AIA Kress Lecture)

Nick Card
University of the Highlands and Islands

Off the northernmost tip of Scotland lie the Orkney Islands. It is said that if you scratch their surface, the Orkneys bleed archaeology! This is nowhere truer than in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site that is known for some of the most iconic prehistoric monuments of Atlantic Europe: the great stone circles of the Ring of Brodgar and the Stones of Stenness; Maeshowe, the finest chambered tomb in northern Europe; and the exceptionally well preserved 5,000-year-old village of Skara Brae.

Recent research and excavation in this area are radicalizing our views of this period and providing a sharp contrast to the Stonehenge-centric view of the Neolithic. In particular, the stunning discovery of a Neolithic complex at the Ness of Brodgar that was enclosed within a large walled precinct is changing our perceptions. The magnificence of the Ness structures with their refinement, scale, and symmetry, decorated with color and artwork, bears comparison with the great temples of Malta. Our excavations are revealing a 5,000-year-old complex, socially stratified, and very dynamic society that may have been a major hub of Neolithic Britain.

The Ness excavations were recognized by the American Institute of Archaeology as one of the great discoveries in 2009; named the 2011 Current Archeology Research Project of the Year; winner of the international Andante Travel Archaeology Award in 2012; and featured in cover article in National Geographicin 2014.

The excavations are directed by Nick Card who has lived and worked on Orkney off the north tip of Scotland for more than 25 years. He is Senior Projects Manager of the Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology, University of Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute that he helped to establish. He is also a Member of Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site Research Committee; an Honorary Research Fellow of the University of the Highlands and Islands; Chair of the Ness of Brodgar Trust and Vice-president of the American Friends of the Ness of Brodgar.

Event Image Lecture | Anjali Vats, J.D., Ph.D.
4:20 PM - 5:20 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Theorizing the Hyperracial Infringer: Digital Piracy and the Rhetorical Darkening of Russian Whiteness.

Dr. Vats, Visiting Professor of Law at UC Davis, explores the stark binary between the characters of the Western postracial creator and the non-Western hyperracial infringer, with particular emphasis on intellectual property discourse’s role in creating racialized anti-citizens. Focusing on the rhetorical construction of Russian piracy and counterfeiting, it illustrates how the hyperracial infringer is constructed and deployed in public culture. Other than the Ukraine, Russia is the only nation that has been consistently included on the US’s Special 301 Priority Watch List and historically constructed as racially white. In a curious example of infringement discourse, Russians are highlighted for the mafia-style criminal copying and their participation in organized crime rings, functionally racially darkening them. Drawing upon work in whiteness studies, this talk contends that Russians are painted as “bad apples,” in Richard Dyer's words, their racial identities intimately tied to their real and imagined infringement of intellectual property rights. Demonizing Russians, a practice with considerable historical precedent in the United States, creates space for American exceptionalism as well as neoliberal capitalist expansion through the differentiation of obedient/unruly whiteness in politically and culturally advantageous ways. Dr. Vats' research is focused on rhetorics of race in law and popular culture. Professor Vats is currently working on a monograph entitled Created Differences: Intellectual Properties and Racial Formation in the Making of Americans which considers how political, popular, and legal discourse about copyrights, trademark, and patents shape our understandings of race, citizenship, and the capacity to engage in valuable intellectual labor. She has published articles in the Quarterly Journal of Speech, Communication, Culture & Critique, Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies, and Southern Communication Journal. She has also co-authored law review articles in the Duquesne Law Review and Wayne Law Review. In 2016, Professor Vats was awarded an AAUW Postdoctoral Fellowship and an Exemplary Diversity Scholar Citation from the National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University of Michigan. Prior to teaching, she clerked for the Honorable A. William Maupin of the Supreme Court of Nevada.

The daughters, isolated from their busy parents, find themselves under the care of a nanny who brings sustenance in the form of storytelling. This provocative play explores innocence turned to tragic cynicism. It is a playful but serious modern parable for our time.

Event Image Exhibition | Anne Hirondelle: Small Revolutions | Feb. 11 - April 30, 2017
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 An Interactive Introduction to Knot Theory
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Eaton Hall

Inga Johnson, Professor of Mathematics, will speak about her recent research. As part of my last sabbatical, my collaborator, Allison Henrich, and I completed our book An Interactive Introduction to Knot Theory (published by Dover, January 2017). Our text is unique not because of the mathematics that it contains, but rather due to the pedagogy it employs. We have designed the book to be used in an inquiry-based setting where students independently figure out, derive, and create many of the major results of knot theory while using our book as a guide. The book contains definitions, exercises, and statements of theorems, but the proofs and arguments that underlie the theory are left for readers to develop as they progress through the text. This active-learning pedagogy places the students ideas and arguments as the centerpiece of the course. As a result, class meetings include little to no lecture but are instead filled with student presentations followed by a process of questions and vetting by their peers. In my talk I will discuss the following questions: what is the difference between math research and writing a mathematical book? How does an inquiry-based course compare to a "traditional" mathematics course? What goes into planning and managing an inquiry-based course, and how does one create inquiry-based activities? What is knot theory, and why is it a good topic for inquiry-based pedagogy? I will also discuss current research on student outcomes when inquiry-based methods are used and how those outcomes compare to non-inquiry-based courses.

Event Image Lear's Daughters
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

Originally devised in 1987 by the Women’s Theatre Group in collaboration with Elaine Feinstein, Lear’s Daughters tells the story of what happened to King Lear’s daughters, Goneril, Regan and Cordelia, before they made their entrances in Shakespeare’s classic play. The daughters, isolated from their busy parents, find themselves under the care of a nanny who brings sustenance in the form of storytelling. This provocative play explores innocence turned to tragic cynicism. It is a playful but serious modern parable for our time.

About the Artist
Louis Bunce (1907-1983) was a legendary Portland painter, printmaker, and teacher who taught at the Museum Art School from 1946 to 1972 and who influenced several generations of Oregon artists. Hull says, "Bunce was Oregon’s archetypal modern artist of the mid-twentieth century. 'Louie,' as he was called, was ambitious, gregarious, fun-loving, women-loving, antic and outrageous. He was deadly serious when it came to art-making and engaged with it all: Cubism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Post-Modernism, and at the end of his life almost operatic Romanticism."
