You want to find a job, internship, year of service, volunteer opportunity, and more! If you're actively job searching, have your resume ready to hand out and a short and sweet synopsis about yourself and your professional interests ready to go! If you're just exploring options, collect contact info, do some additional research, and do an informational interview to learn more before you apply. You want to build your confidence! Practice asking questions of employers AND sharing about who you are and what you're passionate about.  Every expo you attend and each time you approach a recruiter, you get more and more comfortable presenting yourself in a professional manner.

WHO'S COMING? Find your career fit with over 70+ employers comprised of private industry; public, educational, and non-profit organizations; local government, the federal government, law enforcement, and military--ALL on campus and excited to share more with you about their organization and early career talent opportunities. Open to students from ALL majors, classifications, and identities. Every expo looks a little different so come each term to keep exploring and expanding your career opportunities!

Open Educational Resources (OER), like all intellectual property, are subject to the laws of copyright. But some authors and creators would like a way to share and allow others to adapt their work without written permission. Creative Commons created a set of open licenses that enable creators of copyrightable work the ability to retain copyright while allowing others to copy, distribute, and make use of their work within the license terms.

In this workshop, participants will learn about the basics of copyright, licensing, and the implications for adopting, adapting, or creating Open Educational Resources (OER), so that they feel confident selecting and assigning an open license for their work.

This workshop will be held virtually via Zoom, preregister for link.

Propaganda: Fascism and Neo-Fascism Lecture Series: "Acts of Self Representation - Nazi-Fascist Cultural Diplomacy"
March 5
4:00–5:30 p.m.
Knight Library Browsing Room

The Italian word “propaganda” originally referred to advertisements for consumer products, not political misinformation. But with the rise of the Fascism, propaganda assumed its modern definition: the marketing of politics. Throughout Benito Mussolini’s dictatorship (1922-1945), advertising shaped autocracy, and vice-versa. We often think of Fascist propaganda in two dimensions, picturing posters and newsreels. But because the regime created powerful incentives for private businesses to support state dictates, propaganda included architecture, fashion, and even children’s toys. Today, the far-right deploys new kinds of propaganda, using generative AI and deep fakes, to attract new followers. From Fascism to Neo-Fascism, the most powerful forms of propaganda surround voters with alternate realities. 

This speaker series brings together four scholars who have studied Italian Fascist and Neo-Fascist propaganda to understand how it creates this total environment, and how to see through it. This lecture by Professor Marla Stone is titled, "Acts of Self Representation, Nazi-Fascist Cultural Diplomacy."

March 6
4:00–5:30 p.m.
Many Nations Longhouse

Join Ilatsoíí (Wyatt) Bellon for a roundtable discussion of his forthcoming publication, Taking Back Two-Spirit: The Historic and Current War on Indigenous Gender and Sexual Variance. The legacy of cis-heteropatriarchy that colonisation inflicted onto Native peoples within the so-called "Americas" is underrepresented within academia. Taking Back Two-Spirit uses an ethnographic approach to uncover the histories of Native gender and sexual diversity and addresses chronological accounts of violent colonisation toward these identities. Bellon asserts that two-spirit, genderqueer and non-conforming as well as non-heterosexual-identifying Native peoples face systematic oppression and colonisation intersecting at racial, sexual, and cultural powers. The proximity of this research to Bellon’s personal experience makes for a unique look into deconstructing colonial ideologies, white supremacy, and the movement to take back traditional roles within Native communities.

 

Biography:

Ilatsoíí (Wyatt) Bellon is an undergraduate interdisciplinary Indigenous Studies student at The Evergreen State College. Wyatt’s passion for intersectional activism has led him to the creation of the Celebration of Two-Spirit Artists conference while working as an intern at the House of Welcome on The Evergreen State College campus, and conjoining efforts with like-minded creatives with the fundraising non-profit organisation Cosplay Care Project. He has guest spoken at UW Tacoma’s RSO Cedar Circle about the historic and ongoing colonial effects towards gender and sexual variance within Indigenous communities. Wyatt’s ancestry hails from the Apache borderlands and his adopted home at Wapato longhouse in Yakama Nation.

Join us for the annual Wayne Morse Chair lecture featuring Representative Peter DeFazio, 2023-24 Wayne Morse Chair. 

Rep. DeFazio served for 36 years as the U.S. Representative for Oregon’s 4th congressional district, making him the longest-serving member of Congress in Oregon history.

Congressman DeFazio chaired the influential House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, which has jurisdiction over highways and transit, ports and water resources, railroads, aviation, economic development, and the Coast Guard. Among his many accomplishments as committee chair, he increased federal investment in America’s infrastructure by more than $550 billion. 

Rep. DeFazio previously served as the ranking member on the House Natural Resources Committee, where he focused on energy, federal lands, ocean and fisheries, and Native American issues. A native of Massachusetts and a veteran of the United States Air Force Reserve, he previously was a county commissioner in Lane County.  

Rep. DeFazio voted against and refused to accept every congressional pay raise while the government was deficit spending. Instead, he used his pay raises to fund scholarships at five southwestern Oregon community colleges.

March 7
4:00 p.m.
Lawrence Hall room 115

University of Oregon Visiting Artist Lecture Series

Presented by the Department of Art and Center for Art Research

 

Julian Watts combines traditional woodcarving techniques with an experimental sculptural approach to explore the formal and conceptual intersections between the human body, the landscape, and the functional objects that we interact with every day. This approach has continued to evolve, expanding to incorporate an entire ecosystem of abstract, biomorphic wood and bronze works, ranging from bowls, to furniture, to largescale, purely sculptural pieces. Watts’ organic, open ended approach to woodcarving embraces a space of playful ambiguity, where the viewer is free to find poetic and unexpected associations between the body, the landscape, and the overlooked objects that we live with, revealing new and unexpected ways of seeing the world around us.

After earning a BFA in sculpture at the University of Oregon in 2012, Watts returned to his hometown of San Francisco to apprentice under furniture makers before beginning his own practice. His work has been shown internationally including solo exhibitions at Sarah Myerscough Gallery in London, Patrick Parrish Gallery in New York, Curators Cube in Tokyo, and Jack Fischer Gallery in San Francisco. He has participated in numerous art and design fairs, including Design Miami/Basel, Fog Fair, and Salon NY. His work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Architectural Digest, The New Yorker, and American Craft Magazine, among others. He was shortlisted for the Loewe Craft Prize in 2018. Watts has taught courses at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Anderson Ranch, and was the 2018 Wornick Distinguished Visiting Professor of Wood Arts at the California College of the Arts. He’s based in Alpine, OR.

Lectures are also live streamed and the videos are archived on YouTube.

About the Instructor:

While at the University of Oregon, Andrew decided to try out the public speaking club Toastmasters. When he competed in his first competition he got 2nd place out of two people. Feeling embarrassed he knew he needed to dive deeper into what it took to persuade an audience. After researching countless hours of books and resources, he became president of the club, doubled it's membership, and the very next year he got voted the top public speaker in Central and Southern Oregon at 22 Years Old.

Since then he's hosted virtual conferences that have broken Guinness World Records as he spoke to hundreds of people at a time! He's passionate about helping people find their voice to confidently present in their unique style so they can have the life they desire. Go Ducks!
