January 27–June 14

Every year, the JSMA partners with the University of Oregon’s Common Reading—campuswide programming around a shared book and its themes—to organize a Common Seeing exhibition that explores and expands on the Common Reading through visual art. The 2020-21 novel is This is My America by UO Assistant Vice Provost for Advising, Kimberly Johnson. The Common Reading’s charge of Listen. Learn. Act. incorporates different bodies of work across multiple platforms, focusing on Blackness, Black experience, and dismantling racism. The works on view in this year’s Common Seeing, on loan from the collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer, are by Black American artists Hank Willis Thomas (American, b. 1976) and Alison Saar (American, b. 1956). Their art compels us to look, listen, learn, and act.

The JSMA believes that art can move people to change. As an academic art museum, it is critical for us to listen, learn, and act in order to build trust and understanding. We are committed to the advancement of anti-racism in museum culture and diverse and equitable approaches in our work. The JSMA’s exhibitions and public programs strive to amplify multiple perspectives, experiences, and voices. LOOK. Listen. Learn. Act. is generously made possible by the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation.

March 26–April 24
Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Aperture Gallery

Artist Statement:

Pea Baby is a series of illustrations telling the tale of Angela, who happens to swallow a holy pea. This pea has chosen Angela, much like the Lord chose the Virgin Mary to give birth to Jesus. And so, Angela gives birth to a pea baby. In this series, I wanted to return to a childhood fear I had growing up in Catholic School in which God suddenly chose me to give birth to the next Jesus. I would imagine this scenario to test my own faith in God, and was frightened by the part of myself that wanted to tell Him, 'No, I don't want to give birth to Jesus.' Returning to this fear as a queer young adult is very interesting; I think it grasps a lot of complications that exist within my relationship to Catholicism.

April 22 11:00 a.m.–noon

As the world transitioned to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, everything possible was shifted online. This included the University of Oregon's universal intervention, Get Explicit 101, focused on creating a healthy and respectful campus culture and ending sexual violence. Normally a 90-minute in-person workshop facilitated by approximately 60 facilitators, Get Explicit was transitioned onto Zoom in a 60-minute webinar and 30-minute breakout group format.

Throughout the process, the 60 facilitators were asked about their experiences. Their feedback served as the foundation of this presentation detailing their experience creating connections through online programming and the effect that their participation in Get Explicit had on their student and personal lives. Please join us as we explore what preventionists, supervisors, and students can take away from this ~unprecedented~ year of pandemic programming.

April 22 2:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.

The University Career Center's practice interview program is a safe place to practice interview skills, gain confidence and receive interview feedback from an experienced hiring professional. Guest employers volunteer their time to interview students and provide them with immediate feedback on their interviewing skills. Interviews at this time will be on a familiar video platform (i.e. Zoom, Teams, etc). 


Interviews are 30 minutes in length - ~20 minutes for the interview and ~10 minutes for feedback from the interviewer. 
Students will not interview for a specific position but should be prepared to respond to general behavior interview questions. 
Students DO NOT have to have specific interest in the organization in order to participate--the goal is to get practice interview experience.


 Why Sign-up for a Practice Interview?


Knowing what to expect and how to prepare will lead to successful future interviews. Success begins with preparation.
You will receive immediate interview feedback from our guest employer and professional hiring manager.
Practice makes better! Get a jump start on your job search, boost your interview skills and increase your chances for a successful interview the next time you're in front of an employer.

https://uoregon.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_2tczfQozQESbrD-M8LX9HQ

Stephon Alexander, professor of physics at Brown University and the president of the National Society of Black Physicists will give a talk “What a Scientist Learned from Jazz about Innovation” via Zoom as a guest of the UO Physics Department. The event will be hosted by the OHC and sponsored by the OHC’s Endowment for Public Outreach in the Arts, Sciences, and Humanities.

Alexander, who was born in Trinidad and moved the U.S. at eight, is a theoretical physicist specializing in cosmology, particle physics, and quantum gravity (String Theory and Loop Quantum Gravity). He has held previous appointments at Stanford University, Imperial College, Penn State, Dartmouth, and Haverford College. He is Executive Director of the Harlem Gallery of Science and an Affiliate Professor in Africana Studies at Brown.

Alexander, a jazz saxophonist, also explores interconnections between music, physics, mathematics, and technology though recordings, performance, teaching, and public lectures. He has performed and collaborated with Will Calhoun, Brian Eno, Marc Cary, Vernon Reid, Ronnie Burrage, and Jaron Lanier. He authored the book The Jazz of Physics: The Secret Link Between Music and the Structure of the Universe published in 2017, which uses jazz to answer physics’ most vexing questions about the past and future of the universe. Following the great minds that first drew the links between music and physics—a list including Pythagoras, Kepler, Newton, Einstein, and Rakim—The Jazz of Physics reveals that the ancient poetic idea of the “Music of the Spheres,” clarifies confounding issues in physics.

April 22 4:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, there have been innumerable escalated acts of xenophobic, Sinophobic and misogynistic violence towards our East and South-East Asian community members. In light of the shootings that occurred in Atlanta, when so few are publicly doing so, it’s important to validate and name the racialized and sexualized nature of this violent incident. Specifically, this has highlighted the nuance of how East & South-East Asian women experience harassment and sexual violence in USA. For a variety of reasons, it is understandable that folks are grieving, fearful, feeling alone among others. It is so important for us to come together – whether we are on-campus or not – as a community to support one another through these difficult times.

It is easy to feel alone and fearful; we believe community healing is integral to our individual growth and feelings of safety. It is especially important to center the experiences of our East and South-East Asian community members as we collectively address what effective racial justice work means here in the Eugene/Springfield area.

 

Thus, we are honoured to host Dr. Ron Miyaguchi, licensed psychologist, who will be facilitating a closed processing space which is open to any ADPI identifying individuals. Since this is online, anybody can participate and do not have to be affiliated with the University of Oregon or live in Lane County.

 

During May, we will be offering a follow-up open listening session with UO administrators and allies for those interested in attending and learning how to better support our ADPI community members. More details soon.

This event is a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in April and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) in May.

April 24 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

We are Synapse National at the University of Oregon! We are a student-run advocacy and awareness group created to serve the Eugene/Springfield area's growing community of individuals who have experienced brain injury. 

Come join us on April 24th, 2021 from 10 am to 5 pm PST for our seminar: Building Brain Awareness to Help Brain Injury: Synapse at the UO’s First Annual Seminar! Our guest speakers include Dr. Traster from the Neurologic Wellness Institute in Chicago, Daniel Avesar who completed his post-doctoral work in the University of Oregon’s Institute of Neuroscience and who has had his own personal experiences with brain injury, Willy Curry and Jeremy Barry from the Department of Neurological Sciences at the University of Vermont, Matt Smear from the Department of Psychology and Institute of Neuroscience at the University of Oregon, Jeremy F. Huckins from the Department of Psychology and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth, pediatric physical therapist from Eugene Dr. Sophia Patel, and Professor of Speech-Language Pathology at McMaster University, Dr. Lyn Turkstra. We will also be featuring a panel of individuals who will share about their histories with brain injury. We will hear personal stories from Daniel Avesar, Jenna Kelly, Nancy Ludwig, and Ben Luskin about their own lived experiences.

In this seminar, we bring together researchers and clinicians to speak about their work - in hopes of promoting an understanding of what is known about our biopsychosocial processes and how they work. Those living with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) have shared a particular interest in these topics as they are the ones living with unique changes affected by them. With help from enough researchers and clinicians, we hope to deliver a mosaic of information that, together, will be particularly valuable for the University of Oregon as well as the ABI community.

Please come if interested, or forward to anyone who might benefit! Our goal is to build brain injury awareness and strengthen community resources, so ALL are welcome!

 

Link to register:

If you are interested, but unable to attend, we encourage you to register anyway. We will be sending out a recording to all registered attendees after the webinar event.

Join us for our annual day of service to commemorate Earth Week! For our typical Earth Day of Service, volunteers would be planting trees, removing invasive plant species, and tending to a garden with our community partners. This year we will be holding a hybrid (virtual AND in-person) event focusing on the theme of intersectional environmentalism! 

Intersectional environmentalism focuses on looking at environmental issues through the lens of identity and social justice. During the virtual portion of the event, we will be doing a variety of activities and engaging in discussion around five main topics: (1) the climate crisis, (2) fast fashion, (3) mental health, (4) tree equity, (5) sustainable food practices. 

The virtual portion of the event will start at 1pm and last until approximately 2:30pm. Once the virtual portion of the event has concluded, we will be hosting an in-person communal planting event on the EMU Amphitheater where participants will be able to plant seeds together. Materials will be provided. 

To participate in the in-person event you must be registered on this Engage page AND attend the virtual event. https://uoregon.campuslabs.com/engage/event/7020399

Get Practice Video Interview Experience with Guest Employer: Target
Diana Xing, Executive Team Leader-Human Resources, UO alum 2011 

The University Career Center's practice interview program is a safe place to practice interview skills, gain confidence and receive interview feedback from an experienced hiring professional. Guest employers volunteer their time to interview students and provide them with immediate feedback on their interviewing skills. Interviews at this time will be on a familiar video platform (i.e. Zoom, Teams, etc). 


Interviews are 30 minutes in length - ~20 minutes for the interview and ~10 minutes for feedback from the interviewer.
Students will not interview for a specific position but should be prepared to respond to general behavior interview questions. 
Students DO NOT need to have specific interest in the organization in order to participate--the goal is to get practice interview experience.


 Why Sign-up for a Practice Interview?


Knowing what to expect and how to prepare will lead to successful future interviews. Success begins with preparation.
You will receive immediate interview feedback from our guest employer and professional hiring manager.
Practice makes better! Get a jump start on your job search, boost your interview skills and increase your chances for a successful interview the next time you're in front of an employer.

April 29 6:00 p.m.–7:00 p.m.

Join us spring term as we host a series of speakers that are working to redefine the term “outdoorsy”. Often times the term “outdoorsy” seems exclusive to one demographic: straight, white men. Throughout the term we will be bringing in a variety of different speakers who will discuss creating and holding space in the Outdoors where often times their identities are not always welcome.

Our second speaker this term will be Vasu Sojitra! Vasu continues to challenge the biases that go with being a person of color with a disability through his intersectional work which include being the first adaptive athlete for The North Face, an advisor for The Outdoor F.U.T.U.R.E Initiative, the co-founder of Inclusive Outdoors Project, and a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) stratagist for In Solidarity Network and independently. With the motto of “ninjasticking through the wood to bring intersectionality to the outdoors” we are so excited to have Vasu join us!

To access the virtual zoom links, please click on the yellow button named "Join Stream". Which can be found in the top right corner when you click on the event to pull up the complete details.

 

In light of the surge of anti-Asian violence including the recent shootings that occurred in Atlanta, the Center for Multicultural Academic Excellence (CMAE), University Counseling Services (UCS), and Sexual Violence Prevention & Education (SVPE) are offering a space to validate and name the racialized nature of these violent incidences. During a time we're remote, we wanted to provide a space for students to collectively express and process their fear, pain, and any other emotions that have arisen as a response to the escalated acts of xenophobic, Sinophobic and misogynistic violence towards our East and South-East Asian community members during the pandemic.

Mariko Lin and Bango Gancinia from University Counseling Services will be facilitating this group for all students that identify within the Asian, Desi, & Pacific Islander (ADPI) community. To center community building, this space is open to any students living in the Eugene/Springfield area, so we invite students from Lane Community College and Bushnell University to join us as well.

 

This event is a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in April and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) in May. For other SAAM events, please lookout for the Teal SAAM 2021 banner on UO events and visit saam.uoregon.edu. For APAHM events, please visit https://inclusion.uoregon.edu/apahm.

Community crafts and congratulatory notes: 

Help us Honor and Celebrate Our Lavender Graduates!

 

The LGBT Education and Support Services is accepting submissions for community crafts and congratulatory notes for our Lavender Graduates! 

 

This graduation for LGBTQIA+ UO students will be held remotely on Sunday June 6th, 2021 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. In lieu of being together in-person, we are bringing the community to each graduate's home by sending GradPacks with a tassel, stole, and community crafts.

 

What is our call for submissions?

We are calling on you, our community of artists, creatives, crafters, writers, and supporters to offer a memento, note, or handmade craft to each of our Lavender Graduates. Submission may include handwritten notes, paintings, embroidery, jewelry, collages, dried flowers, enamel pins, or really anything!

 

Why call for submissions?

Due to our ceremony being remote this year, graduates are missing our beloved community being part of this celebration. This is a creative way to be part of our graduate’s day by offering tokens of our appreciation and celebration. Plus, it is a fun activity for those looking to share their quarantine craft or be part of an initiative for LGBTQIA+ community care!

 

Submissions may include:

1) Crafts mailed to all graduates. Crafts should come in quantities of 10, 15, 20, or 30 items of your choosing.  Once we receive your crafts, we will take care of shipping these individually to graduates. 

---------> Items can be as simple as a congratulations card or as complex as a painted picture. Submissions may be handwritten notes, paintings, embroidery, jewelry, collages, dried flowers, enamel pins, or really anything!

---------> Items must be mailed or dropped off to a Eugene, Oregon address by May 17th, 2021. We will coordinate with you for this exchange!

---------> Gifts should be reasonably sized (think compact!) to be distributed in one goodie bag per graduate.

 

 AND/OR

 

 2) A digital note or image (congratulations, advice, community love) sent to all graduates. Your note will be printed and sent to each graduate in the Lavender Grad Pack. Your note can be silly, serious, uplifting, supportive, or all the above!

 

Personalized items and digital notes must be received by May 17th. This allows adequate time for packages to be assembled and mailed to graduates in time for Graduation on June 6th.

May 21 noon–5:00 p.m.

Share with us a piece of art that you want on display at the Sex Talk Chronicles Art Show 2021 on a virtual platform relating to the theme “Intimacy: Into Me You See”. For example, how is intimacy affected during a time of isolation and social distancing? What are ways that you cope with that? What do you wish you knew about intimacy when you were younger? What does intimacy mean to you?

We will send you an anonymous submission from Sex Talk Chronicles to pair with your art, and ask that you use that as your Artist Statement. You will then be invited to reflect about how reading someone else's words and using them to create a piece made you feel and how you connected with them and created intimacy anonymously.

You can submit art of any media including painting, photography, sculpture, music, spoken word, acting, dancing, and anything else that can be recorded or photographed for a virtual art show experience. All levels and multiple submissions are welcome! To learn more information and apply, visit: https://oregon.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_38mT50DSHtC3ANM.

All submissions must be in by Friday, May 14th.

Due to the fluctuation nature of COVID-19, we are unsure of whether or not this event will be in person or virtual - more details to come soon.
