March 3 1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.
Lawrence Hall, Room 249

Miguel Juárez will open the year-long celebration of the 20th anniversary of CultureWork: A Periodic Broadside for Arts & Culture Workers published by the UO's Center for Community Arts and Cultural Policy. Juárez will engage the campus community in discussion concerning representation of Latinxs and people of color in public history and museum studies through video conference on Friday, March 3rd from 1:00-3:00pm. In 1997, Juárez published the article "The Invisible Careers for Latinos: Public History and Museum Studies for CultureWork: A Periodic Broadside for Arts and Culture Workers." Twenty years later, Juarez finds that progress still needs to be made.

Preservation of cultural history requires cultural competency from programmers, arts educators, archivists, librarians, museum curators, and historians that can be passed on to future generations. As culture workers, how do we create tools, repositories, and programs that recognize the historical and cultural representations of communities of color? How do we appropriately implement such practices and peoples in the programs and educational offerings we produce that do not suggest tokenism? Juárez asserts that there needs to be a sense of trust, respect, and accountability to communities that have been excluded, marginalized, or underrepresented. He also suggests that digital technologies as well as neighborhood based programs can provide access and exposure to these cultural histories. Examples and ideas will be shared in this talk. Q&A will follow.

Juárez is a doctoral candidate in the Borderlands History Program at the University of Texas-El Paso, He holds a Masters in Library Science (MLS) and a Masters of Arts (MA) in Border History. He is the author of Colors on Desert Walls: The Murals of El Paso (1997) and is co-editor of Where Are All the Librarians of Color: The Experiences of People of Color in Academia (2015). His research interests include libraries and archives, artists and art making, borderlands history, public history, Chicana/o history, culture and urban and planning history. You can follow him @miguelJuárez. This event is free and open to the public.

2017 CSWS Northwest Women Writers Symposium: “Women and Work: Stories of the Great Migration,” featuring Ayana Mathis

Mathis’s debut novel, The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, is a New York Times Bestseller, a 2013 New York Times Notable Book of the Year, a Boston Globe Best Book of the Year, and an NPR Best Books of 2013. This novel was long-listed for the IMPAC Dublin International Literary Award, nominated for a 2013 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award, and was chosen by Oprah Winfrey as the second selection for Oprah’s Book Club 2.0. Mathis teaches at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop.

“The Twelve Tribes of Hattie is the multi-generational story of one family, part of the Great Migration of African-Americans who left the South to escape hatred and oppression and seek opportunity in the North. An intimate portrait captured in twelve luminous narrative threads, The Twelve Tribes of Hattie opens in 1923, when fifteen-year-old Hattie Shepherd flees Georgia and settles in Philadelphia, hoping for a chance at a better life. Instead, she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins succumb to an illness a few pennies could have prevented. Hattie gives birth to nine more children whom she raises with grit and mettle and not an ounce of the tenderness they crave. That lack of love, as well as other travails, causes suffering to ripple through the generations.

George S. Turnbull Center, Shirley Pape Forum

Starbucks is one of the world’s most recognized brands. And with the new web series “Upstanders,” it has become one of the world’s most innovative media companies as well.

Through short stories, films, and podcasts, “Upstanders” shares the experiences of ordinary people doing extraordinary things to create positive change in their communities. By showcasing stories of meaning and inspiration to do real good in the world—rather than just look good—the series represents a socially responsible approach to strategic communication.

Join the UO School of Journalism and Communication in Portland for a conversation with Joshua Trujillo, whose career as a filmmaker and photojournalist has featured innovative coverage of important news events and everyday stories from Seattle to Afghanistan. Trujillo, one of the key creators of “Upstanders,” will talk about the ways companies and brands are becoming skilled storytellers, building ethical brand identities, and engaging with their communities.

This event is sponsored by the SOJC’s Portland-based Multimedia Journalism and Strategic Communication master’s degree programs, which equip creative professionals to tell the stories that make a difference while exploring the frontiers of journalism, visual storytelling, and branded content.

March 8 5:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m.
Lawrence Hall, Room 177

Long mediated by a few highly artificial photographs made in the 1920s, the monumental Pillar of Angels (a.k.a. Pillar of Judgment) in the thirteenth-century south transept of Strasbourg Cathedral has come to be understood as a fairly straightforward, if singular, example of Gothic religious art — a transposition of conventional Last Judgment imagery, rendered in a transitional (late Romanesque-early Gothic) style, into the heart of sacred space. Encounters with the work from natural standpoints on the ground — including the many "hotspots" of liturgical and judicial action within and beyond the transept — yield entirely different perspectives.

Drawing together the various impressions this multi-sided monument presents within its original spatial context, considering the associations it summons up with other works of sculpture known to contemporaries, and teasing out its analogies with the stained glass imagery that alternately illuminates and obscures it, this lecture offers a new understanding of the pillar as a work whose form and iconography alike are far more complex and wide-ranging than previous scholarship has recognized. The pillar emerges not only as a support for iconography but as a tool for thinking about the relations between humanity and the divine.

March 8 6:00 p.m.–7:30 p.m.
Lillis Business Complex, Room 282

PwC invites you to join them to have a meaningful dialogue about being color brave on Wednesday, March 8 from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

What does it mean to be color brave? It means having candid conversations about race that can help us better understand each other’s perspectives and experiences so that we can make better decisions and secure better prospects for future generations. Learning about others’ experiences and perspectives is at the heart of our ability to build trusting relationships. It helps increase our cultural dexterity so we can better work across differences and support each other’s success. Acknowledging and discussing race is a first step to developing and sustaining an inclusive culture.

The Color Brave campus dialogues aim to educate and empower students, faculty, and university administration to have a purposeful discussion and address the issue of racial inequities that exist in America today. By being “color brave,” we can address the uncomfortable issue of race and increase mutual understanding.

Event details:

From 6:00 - 6:45 p.m. we will watch clips from a dialogue that former PwC US Sr. Partner and Chairman, Bob Moritz, had with Mellody Hobson, President of Ariel Investments, about her powerful TED Talk “Color Blind or Color Brave?” We will also engage in dialogue about what we can do as individuals and as a community to increase mutual understanding. From 6:45 - 7:30 p.m., we will have an informal networking event to continue the conversations and further relationships. Refreshments will be provided.

This event is open to ALL students, faculty, and staff.

REGISTRATION: Please contact Carrie Rees at carrie.rees@pwc.com to register for this event.
