January 4–February 11
Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Adell McMillan Gallery

The Three Ladies consists of three triptychs, each triptych consists of the same three ladies. The women are despondent and each are named appropriately, Disheartened, Discouraged and Dispirited. Each large piece portrays a female figure in a swimsuit. The location in time and space is not known by the women or the viewer.

The Three Ladies, on panel,were created for the gallery at Maude Kerns Art Center. The building's history was a major influence for this work. The building was once Fairmount Presbyterian Church. The congregation aged out in the 1950s, and then the building became the art center it is today. The knowledge of a congregation aging out nagged at me. I knew of church bodies growing out of a facility, but not one that had closed. The fact that people no longer wanted to be part of the Gospel was saddening. I wondered if the congregation relocated and what happened to their descendants. The building once offered a place of sanctuary for the sinful, Sunday School classes for children, then no longer. I took this idea of aging out and applied the concept to my own body and my own faith. I am the model and the muse for these drawings. The drawings were also influenced by Lucas Cranach the Elder's Three Graces and Botticelli's Three Graces of the Primavera.

The women stand in 1950s styled swimsuits modeling their attire in an old church. They are a bit too fat to be lazily standing about in swim wear. As if transported from a dressing room to the panel. Their location is not the beach or a hotel pool. The women do not have sunglasses, sunscreen or a drink. They are to be viewed. They are purposely created to be on display. But, for whom? They are not the graven images of the icon, nor the pin up girls of the 1950s. These women are somewhere between the virgin and the old hag. Author Edwin Mullins in his book, The Painted Witch states, "the good woman can be classified in declining order of excellence, the four-star virgin, the three-star wife, the two-star deflowered martyr and then finally the repentant wanton." Therefore, a woman’s value is based on societies view in that place and time. These women do not fit into the categories above. They are simply nine women.

The central figure, of each triptych, is the only woman who looks out to the viewer. One looks to her sister with sadness, the other appears to be judging the two. Dispirited's eyebrows are lowered and her gaze is focused completely outside the picture plane. The women have large breasts, round and full of life. The palette of black, white and gray reinforce the solitude. These women stand awkwardly, childless in their own confinement, are embedded into the panel. They cannot move, but are eternally stuck in their isolation.

M. V. Moran earned her MFA in Visual Studies from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. Moran has a BFA in Painting from the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon. Moran is an Adjunct Professor of Art at Bushnell University in Eugene, Oregon and a Lane Arts Council Artist-in-Residence.

January 30 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.

"What's Up With Whiteness?" is a UO virtual retreat that aims to help participants find their place in conversations around race and systemic injustice by examining their identities and the systems they contribute to.

In this one-day retreat, organized by members of the Deconstructing Whiteness Working Group, participants will explore the question “What’s Up With Whiteness?” through an overview of terms and definitions, historical context, and reflection on their own held identities. "What’s Up With Whiteness?" is intended to be a space where people at all stages of their social justice journey can engage with one another in entry-level conversations about white identity. Our hope is that this retreat will equip participants with the tools needed to more actively and bravely engage in social change from an informed and reflective perspective.

Building healthy relationships is part of a great college experience. Whether they're friendships or romantic relationships, it is important to understand what a healthy relationship looks like and how to recognize an unhealthy relationship. Every relationship will have times that are not so sunny and this can lead to disagreements. Arguments in a relationship are natural, what matters is how we bounce back from it. In this workshop we will identify characteristics of a healthy and unhealthy relationship, ways to better communicate, and how to increase our Emotional Intelligence (EI) skills for improving interactions, relationships, and conversations with others. The workshop will introduce participants to tools that facilitate our interpersonal interactions, improve our ability to empathetically navigate the social environment, and better handle conflicts with the people we love. This workshop is free and open to UO students, faculty, and staff.

Registration coming soon

As the lead writer for New York Times Magazine’s “The 1619 Project,” a major viral multimedia initiative observing the 400th anniversary of the first African slaves arriving in America, award-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones explores the lasting legacy of black enslavement on the nation—specifically, how black Americans pushed for the democracy we have today. 

Nothing we know about American life today has been untouched by slavery. Everything from social infrastructure and segregation to music and sugar have been shaped by it. “The 1619 Project” features all black American authors, activists, journalists, and more, spreading its heartbreaking and absolutely essential message worldwide.

Hannah-Jones will speak about "The 1619 Project" and participate in a panel discussion with UO faculty and students about the need to remain vigilant in the fight against racial inequality at a time when the United States is deeply divided. The event will include an audience Q&A.

March 12 noon

During the COVID-19 pandemic, public debates about the validity of scientific findings and the value of science overall have intensified, as some Americans have actively resisted and even denied the legitimacy of scientific guidance about how to address the disease. What are the social and psychological drivers of public skepticism about science? How can skeptics be convinced otherwise? According to Naomi Oreskes, professor of the History of Science at Harvard University, people won’t be persuaded with more science or more facts. They deny scientific findings because they do not like the implications of their veracity—what Oreskes terms “implicatory denial.”

To convince deniers, their fears and ideologies must be addressed. Some Americans hold a worldview that prioritizes the inviolability of individual rights and the sanctity of the economy above all else, and adhere to an ideology of “limited government.” Oreskes contends, “This runs very, very deep in American culture. It ties into an extraordinary individualism that you don’t generally see in other places in the world. We tend to be more resistant to collective action in the United States than people in other countries. And it ties into this very, very deep idea in American culture that the government that governs best governs least.”

Naomi Oreskes will explore the complexities of Americans’ denial of scientific findings and skepticism about science in her 2020–21 Cressman Lecture “Can Science Be Saved?”  via Zoom.

As Oreskes explains, “Many Americans think that we face a general crisis of trust in science. With the rejection of mask-wearing by many Americans—as well as many of our political leaders—it is easy to come to that conclusion. But evidence shows that the vast majority of Americans do, in fact, trust science.  Scientists (along with doctors and nurses) remain among the most respected and trusted figures in American life. However, Americans do distrust and reject science in particular areas, and we know something about why that is: Americans reject scientific findings and advice when they dislike their implications. Often this involves a perceived threat to our individual freedoms and personal liberties, or to strongly held beliefs. In the COVID-19 crisis, irresponsible political leaders fomented the idea that asking a person to wear a mask was asking them to give up their freedom. This, of course, was preposterous; wearing a mask is little more than an inconvenience. Still, because the question of mask-wearing has become entangled with the question of personal choice, solving it will not be a matter of giving people more or better information.  This means that scientists will have to accept that asking people to trust science is more than a matter of asking them to accept facts; it is also a matter of ethics, morality, and citizenship.”

Oreskes is a leading public intellectual on the role of science in society, the reality of anthropogenic climate change, and on anti-scientific disinformation campaigns. She has written numerous books including Discerning Experts (2019), Why Trust Science? (2019), and Science on a Mission: American Oceanography from the Cold War to Climate Change (2020), and the forthcoming The Magic of the Marketplace: The True History of a False Idea with Erik Conway. 

Oreskes’s lecture is free and open to the public. Registration is required to participate in the live Zoom event. The talk will be recorded and available for viewing on the OHC’s YouTube channel. For more information, contact ohc@uoregon.edu.

Take Back the Night (TBTN) is a yearly international protest aimed at raising awareness about the realities of sexual and domestic violence on campus and in the community, both for survivors of sexual and domestic violence and those who want to support and bear witness in solidarity. Take Back the Night is a survivor-centered event.

We expect that in 2021 this event will be virtual. We will reprise our successful VIRTUAL MARCH and speaker series, available online to the UO Community.  Stay tuned for more details, via Instagram, uo_womenscenter, and via the WC blog,  https://blogs.uoregon.edu/women/ .


In person, TBTN traditionally begins with a rally in the EMU Amphitheater, continues as a march through the streets of Eugene and ends with a Speak Out off-campus – during which survivors of sexual and domestic violence can share personal stories of how sexual and domestic violence has impacted their lives.
