4:15 PM - 5:30 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Reformers a century ago faced the same exaggerated fear of active central government as exists today. A century ago, a watershed presidential election allowed progressives to finally triumph and America’s modern central bank, the Federal Reserve, was born. What are the parallels to the watershed election of 2016? Roger Lowenstein is the author of numerous books, including the bestselling Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist, When Genius Failed: The Rise and Fall of Long-Term Capital Management, While America Aged, Origins of the Crash, and The New York Times bestseller The End of Wall Street. America’s Bank: The Epic Struggle to Create the Federal Reserve is Mr. Lowenstein’s most recent work.

Mesa of Sorrows: Archaeology, History, and the Ghosts of Awat’ovi Pueblo
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Dr. James F Brooks
Professor of History & Anthropology, UCSB

The Hopi community of Awat’ovi existed peacefully on Arizona’s Antelope Mesa for generations until one bleak morning in the fall of 1700—raiders from nearby Hopi villages descended on Awat’ovi, slaughtering their neighboring men, women, and children. While little of the pueblo itself remains, five centuries of history lie beneath the low rises of sandstone masonry. Why did kinsmen target it for destruction? Drawing on oral traditions, archival accounts, and extensive archaeological research, James F. Brooks unravels the story, uncovering layer after layer of significance. Mesa of Sorrows is a probing exploration of how societies confront painful histories, and why communal violence still plagues us today.

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 Laser ablation Studies Using Ultrafast Pulsed Lasers
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Collins Science Center

Michaela Kleinert, Associate Professor of Physics, will speak about her recent research. Since its invention in 1960, the laser has become an integral part of our society. While most everyday lasers are cw (continuous wave) lasers of low power – for example barcode scanners at the grocery checkout –, powerful pulsed lasers that produce extremely short bursts of light (between only a billionth and a millionth of a billionth of a second long!) find more specialized applications both in research and industry. From the creation of super-hydrophobic surfaces that are completely water-repellent to the formation of micrometer sized structures that guide light or allow computers to work properly, from identifying explosives at long range to determining the chemical composition of ancient coins or even rocks on Mars – if you can imagine it, there is a laser to do the job! A generous donation of two 10-ps pulsed laser systems (ESI, Beaverton) has allowed me to enter this fascinating field of research, and in this talk I will discuss projects that are currently being investigated in my research lab. I will introduce the physics of laser/material interaction that leads to the formation of microstructures on metallic surfaces. I will also talk about the plasma plume, the ejected material that forms above the surface and that can be a blessing and a curse: A dense plume leads to strong recombination lines as the electrons recombine with their respective ions. This is advantageous when investigating laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) since it amplifies the characteristic chemical fingerprints that allow us to identify unknown samples. On the other hand, a large plasma plume also acts as a shield and prevents the laser light from hitting the surface (plasma shielding). This of course is not desired when the goal is to pattern the surface in a controlled way (micromachining).

Friday, April 7, 7 p.m.
Hudson Hall — Rogers Music Center

A pre-concert talk begins at 6:45 p.m.

Also in Rogers Music Center's Hudson Hall on April 7, the public is welcome to observe master classes for Willamette University students from 1–4 p.m. Admission to the master classes is free. 

Few flutists in history have made such indelible marks in so many musical circles. From jazz to pop to classical (Orchestra, chamber & solo) to television to film to the concert hall to his teaching studio, Jim is grateful for the variety his professional life has provided. 
He is professor of Flute, Chamber Music and Music Technology at The Colburn Conservatory of Music, and Professor of Practice/Coordinator of Flute Studies at The USC Thornton School of Music where has was awarded the Mellon Mentoring Award and The Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. His summer masterclass, Beyond The Masterclass is now in its ninth year. He has been a faculty member of the Music Academy of the West since 2013. Jim has taught hundreds of flutists, many of them going on to successful orchestral and teaching careers, holding Principal Flute chairs in major symphonies around the world.

Bryan Pezzone is the consummate crossover pianist of his generation. He has excelled in classical, contemporary, jazz, and experimental genres and is known for both his versatility and virtuosity as a performing artist, improviser and composer. He has performed with many major symphony orchestra associations, has toured widely with the jazz group Free Flight, and is known in the Los Angeles area as one of the primary free-lance pianists for film and television soundtrack recording, contemporary music premieres, and chamber music accompanying. 
In addition, Bryan has been the principal pianist with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra from its inception in 1991 through 1999, has received on-screen credit for his performance on the soundtrack of "The Game" (with Michael Douglas), The Bucket List, The Kite Runner, Lars and the Real Girl, Flipped, City By the Sea and has been the pianist on virtually all of the cartoons released by Warner Brothers and Disney (Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Goof Troop, Bonkers) from 1990-2002.

Event Image Electoral Politics in Southeast Asia: Policy, Patronage, and Public Interest
4:15 PM - 5:30 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Throughout Southeast Asia, in a range of phenomena sometimes collectively labeled “money politics,” candidates for elected office distribute patronage—benefits that might include cash, food and other goods, public-sector jobs, infrastructure projects, or other rewards—via clientelist networks. Sometimes illegal or illicit, other times above-ground and at least tacitly condoned, such practices span the electoral cycle and deeply inflect the quality and character of governance structures, democracy, and national integration. This seminar will offer an overview of a multi-year, cross-national, collaborative research project to track and compare these practices and their implications for candidates, political parties, citizens, and policies in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand. Professor Weiss's research is in the field of comparative politics, focusing on Southeast Asia, especially Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia. Thematically, she explores processes and patterns of political development and mobilization, including such dimensions as electoral patterns and processes, nationalism and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, Islamism, "new media," and coalition-building in both civil society and electoral politics. Her primary current research projects focus primarily on various dimensions of political networks, party and coalition structures, collective identities, and the roles and strategies of legislators and other political leaders.

A few months ago the group put out a call for proposals asking Oregonian composers to tell them about their favorite sound from Oregon, and what a piece inspired by that sound might be like. Oregon composers Jim Olsen, Jessika Smith, Eddie Bond, Sam Hunt, and Andrew Endres were selected to write new works for world premiere performances at this concert. The Willamette Jazz Collective opens the performance with a set of new music for large jazz ensemble.

WILLAMETTE and other students are free. General $12, WU faculty/staff and senior admission is $8.

LOCATION: Cone Chapel, Waller Hall

This play — Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy — is brutally quick, and is at once elemental and mercurial. It tells the story of a passionate couple, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, whose overwhelming will to power moves them to obliterate all obstacles, transgressing boundaries of fealty, family and fundamental human kindness. Come and experience the meteoric rise and tragic fall of one of theatre literature’s original power couples.
Tools, Language, and the Evolution of the Human Mind

Special/Endowed Lecture: Lobban Lecture

Kathleen Gibson
University of Texas (School of Medicine)

Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace, co-discoverers of the principle of evolution by natural selection, held starkly contrasting views about the origins of the human mind. Wallace considered the human mind to be qualitatively distinct from that of other animals, while Darwin postulated that animal and human minds differ in degree but not in kind. Darwin’s position, but not Wallace’s, represented a sharp break with traditional Cartesian views that human behavior is rational, but animal behavior is instinctive.

Controversies over the nature of animal/human mental distinctions continue to this day. Many, perhaps most, students of human evolution have continued to hold Cartesian views of human uniqueness. When, in the 1960s, great apes successfully challenged traditional views that humans are the only animals that can make tools or use symbols, anthropologists, psychologists, and linguists were quick to define new areas of human uniqueness such as theory of mind, cooperation, and syntax. These, too, have now been challenged by great apes. Hence, while many scholars continue to argue that human mentalities are qualitatively unique, others now advocate a more Darwinian approach. They accept that great apes possess the rudiments of many object-manipulation, social and communicative behaviors once considered unique to our species, but recognize that human abilities exceed those of the apes in each of these domains. This presentation argues that humans possess increased information processing capacities across a variety of behavioral domains. Hence, humans can construct more information-rich and hierarchically organized motor sequences, objects, communications, and socially-cooperative actions.

Qualitative gap models have also tended to dominate interpretations of the archaeological and paleoanthropological records. Not so long ago, it was nearly universally agreed that the first manufactured stone tools were produced by early members of the genus, Homo, and that fully modern mental abilities arose very suddenly about 40,000 to 50,000 years ago with the appearance of the Upper Paleolithic. New findings challenge these views. These include manufactured stone tools from Lomekwi, Kenya (3.3. mya), complex tools from Africa which long predate the Upper Paleolithic, Indonesian paintings dating to about 40,000 years ago, and increasing evidence of Neanderthal “symbolic” activities and of interbreeding between Neanderthals and modern humans. This talk discusses this new evidence in light of continuity versus qualitative gap perspectives of human/animal and modern human/fossil hominin mental differences. It concludes that much of what we see in the archaeological record accords with an increased information processing model of tool-making, cooperative, and communicative abilities, and, hence, with Darwinian views that differences of degree, rather than of kind, distinguish human from animal minds (and by extension modern human minds from those of other hominins).

3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Friday, April 14, 3 p.m.
Hatfield Library — Hatfield Room


Abstract: “Gonzalo Guerrero” is the name given by sixteenth-century Spanish chroniclers to a shipwreck victim who was thought to have joined Maya society and became a Maya war lord who thwarted the Spanish conquest of Yucatan (Mexico). The retelling of the story has proven irresistible: as recently as fifteen years ago there appeared a newly discovered “autobiography” of Gonzalo—and it was not the first. Tracing this series of arresting accounts through the centuries in both Spanish-language and Anglo-American English-language traditions, we will consider how fiction emerged from history and hearsay in the Latin American literary tradition. Taking this celebrated example from the chronicles of the Spanish conquest period, we will contemplate the issue of how vaguely known historical events become the object of hearsay, eventually creating myths that are ultimately given the credence and weight of history. This lecture will be illustrated

Event Image Teppola Distinguished Visiting Professor Govindan Parayil will present:
4:15 PM - 5:30 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

The Return of the “Machinery Question” and the Failed Promise of Globalization The political economists and social critics of 19th century theorized "the machinery question": the rage against machines by unemployed former artisans and alienated workers after the onset of modern capitalism. Two centuries later, rage against the “march of the machine” has returned. Whereas the Luddites in the 19th century English mills attacked machines as tangible instruments of their oppression, information-age revolts rage against the post-Cold War global political and economic order. There is great anxiety and fear among the public that the new economy being shaped by the twin forces of globalization and technological innovation (global production networks, part-time and contingent work, machine learning, computerization, mobile robotics, et cetera) is leading us into an economic future in which most work will be done by machines, a dystopia worse than the one Charlie Chaplin portrayed in the “Modern Times,” an economic marketplace where humans need not apply. In Bill Joy's words, we fear a future “that doesn’t need us.” In this talk, I will investigate whether it is possible to have a fair economic future in the face of gross asymmetries in social relations, political power, and economic opportunities for the marginalized and excluded majority, as several major technological advances revolutionize the world's political economy.

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).

It tells the story of a passionate couple, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, whose overwhelming will to power moves them to obliterate all obstacles, transgressing boundaries of fealty, family and fundamental human kindness. Come and experience the meteoric rise and tragic fall of one of theatre literature’s original power couples.

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 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.

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.

Studio Art Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Lisa Jarrett
7:00 PM

Monday, April 24, 7 p.m.
Art Building — Room 212

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."

The first 25 students who find all the plants, correctly write down their name, and return to the start table (Brown Field) get a free Wula shirt! All teams that finish and correctly write down plant names are entered into a chance to win a special mystery prize! The hunt starts at 12:05 sharp at our table at Brown Field, so arrive by noon or the others might get a head start!

1:00 PM - 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.”
