"Stories from Everyday" Exhibition
November 22–December 8
9:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.
Lawrence Hall by 177

College students today are juggling a dizzying array of challenges from coursework, relationships, and adjustment to campus life, to economic strain, social injustice, mass violence, and various forms of loss related to COVID-19.

For our class collaborative project in ARTR 346, Relief in Printmaking, each one of us sincerely listened to our friend's, families' and peers' mental health struggles. These are a collection of real stories. All the images are created by responding to each one; every line was physically carved onto a woodblock carefully and mindfully.

Please read the corresponding stories on our website. The entire series of prints are exhibited in the case by 177 Lawrence.

Remember, whatever challenge you are facing, you are not alone.

The Umpire is Out Book Signing with Dale Scott
November 28
3:00–4:30 p.m.
The Duck Store

The Duck Store will host professional baseball umpire, author, and Sheldon High School graduate Dale Scott for an author talk and book signing on Monday, November 28 at the Flagship Campus location. Scott's memoir, The Umpire is Out: Calling the Game and Living My True Self, will be available for purchase at the event.

About The Umpire is Out: Calling the Game and Living My True Self

Dale Scott’s career as a professional baseball umpire spanned nearly forty years, including thirty-three in the Major Leagues, from 1985 to 2017. He worked exactly a thousand games behind the plate, calling balls and strikes at the pinnacle of his profession, working in every Major League Baseball stadium, and interacting with dozens of other top-flight umpires, colorful managers, and hundreds of players, from future Hall of Famers to one-game wonders.

Scott has enough stories about his career on the field to fill a dozen books, and there are plenty of those stories here. He’s not interested in settling scores, but throughout the book he’s honest about managers and players, some of whom weren’t always perfect gentlemen. But what makes Scott’s book truly different is his unique perspective as the only umpire in the history of professional baseball to come out as gay during his career. Granted, that was after decades of remaining in the closet, and Scott writes vividly and movingly about having to “play the game”: maintaining a facade of straightness while privately becoming his true self and building a lasting relationship with his future husband. He navigated this obstacle course at a time when his MLB career was just taking off—and when North America was consumed by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Scott’s story isn’t only about his leading a sort of double life, then opening himself up to the world and discovering a new generosity of spirit. It’s also a baseball story, filled with insights and memorable anecdotes that come so naturally from someone who spent decades among the world’s greatest baseball players, managers, and games. Scott’s story is fascinating both for his umpiring career and for his being a pioneer for LGBTQ people within baseball and across sports.

Native Studies Research Colloquium—Allies, Not Subjects: Teaching Native Thinkers in Political Science
November 29
3:30–5:00 p.m.
Many Nations Longhouse

Most political science programs in the United States teach a course called American Political Thought. Such courses examine key eras in American political history with a focus on primary sources and the analysis of political ideas. Unfortunately, there are few resources currently available on American Indian political thinkers that are aimed at teachers of these courses.

UO political scientist Burke Hendrix is writing a pedagogically oriented book focusing on a small number of American Indian political thinkers that is intended as such a resource. Chapters will be centered on explicating a single short, easily assignable primary text, and will be written on the expectation that readers have little knowledge of where this text fits historically and what its key arguments are. Although the book remains a work in progress, it is likely to include texts by at least the following: William Apess, Elias Boudinot, Sarah Winnemucca, Charles Eastman, Robert Yellowtail, and Zitkála-Šá. It will also include chapters focusing on records of negotiations between Native nations and the United States, one from 1775 and the second to be determined.

Feedback from the NAIS community on the strengths and weaknesses of the project so far will be very much appreciated!

October 15–April 2
11:00 a.m.–8:00 p.m.
Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

Lonnie Graham is a photographer, installation artist, and cultural activist investigating methods by which the arts may be used to achieve tangible meaning in people’s lives. Based in Philadelphia, he is a Professor of Visual Art at Pennsylvania State University and has been awarded grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Pew Charitable Trust, and the Pennsylvania Council for the Arts. For more than three decades, he has created a series of photographs titled Conversation with the World. Last year Graham generously donated seventeen prints from the series to the JSMA.

A Conversation with the World comprises work done in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Rim, Europe, and the Americas. Graham meets individuals and, through mutual trust, makes a portrait and records a conversation. Regardless of age, gender or nationality, all were asked the same eight questions pertaining to origins, family, life, death, values, tradition, and thoughts on Western Culture. Their individual portraits and responses make up the content of the project that the artist hopes will “delve beneath the superficial patina of cultural differences to explore the essential and fundamental motivations of human beings in order to clearly illustrate the bond that is inherently our humanity.”

"Understanding the Microbial History of the Pacific Islands: Insights on Human Adaptations to New Environments"
December 1
4:00–5:00 p.m.
Museum of Natural and Cultural History

The settlement of the Eastern Pacific (the “Polynesian triangle” from Hawaii to Rapa Nui to Aotearoa New Zealand) represents the last great phase of prehistoric human exploration and expansion. Despite this incredible feat, we know incredibly little about immediate and long-term post-arrival impacts on human physiology and health. Arrival in unique locations with varied access to resources, new disease exposures, and altered diets likely resulted in differential adaptive strategies across distinct archipelagos.

A new method – assessing ancient oral microbiomes within calcified dental plaque (calculus) – can provide insights into how humans adapted to new environments. Here, we sequenced ancient DNA preserved within dental calculus from three different Pacific Island Nations (Palau, Tahiti, and Aotearoa) in concert with local collaborators and communities. Distinct oral microbial communities were linked to the arrival in Central-East Polynesia, as well as settlement on individual archipelagos (i.e., in Tahiti), suggesting that settling in new locations may have altered microbes within these Ancestors. A key oral species within the Anaerolineaceae family also corroborated large-scale patterns of human migration, suggesting that these microbial signatures can potentially be leveraged to identify Pacific Islander Ancestors with minimally destructive sampling approaches. Overall, our work reveals how microbial signatures in Ancestors can illuminate novel insights into human adaptation to new environments.

10:00 a.m.

"The Two Gs of Personalized Medicine After Spinal Cord Injury: Genetics and the Gut Microbiome"

Dr. Warren J. Alilain is an Associate Professor in the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Kentucky (UK) College of Medicine, and his laboratory is a part of the Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Center. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California at San Diego. Following this he was a research assistant at the Veterans Administration (VA) Medical Center in San Diego where he was first exposed to the fields of neurodegenerative diseases and spinal cord injury (SCI). For his graduate and postdoctoral work, he trained with the leading experts, Drs. Harry Goshgarian and Jerry Silver, and focused on rodent models of cervical SCI, the resulting respiratory motor deficits, and the therapeutic potential of plasticity and axonal regeneration.

Dr. Alilain has continued these lines of investigations in his own laboratory which he started in 2011 at MetroHealth Medical Center at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. In 2015, he moved his laboratory to UK. In addition to cervical SCI, his research interests include neural plasticity in both injury and learning models, the therapeutic potential of stem cells, and functional electrical stimulation. Dr. Alilain’s approach towards exploring strategies to restore function after SCI is through first developing a pre-clinical animal model which closely reflects the human clinical population. This includes the use of cervical contusion injuries, chronic injured animals, and “humanized” rodents in order to develop personalized therapeutic interventions.

Over his career, Dr. Alilain has trained and supervised over 30 trainees ranging from high school students to clinical fellows. He is currently Director of Graduate Studies for the Department of Neuroscience. Dr. Alilain has reviewed for 20+ scientific journals and a number of federal and private funding agencies including the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, the VA, and the Department of Defense. He is currently a committee member on the Research Committee of the American Spinal Injury Association. Lastly, he founded and created an online SCI seminar series now known as the International Online SCI Research Seminars (@IOSCIRS):  www.ioscirs.com during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sarah McLay, PhD candidate, Philosophy and 2022–23 OHC Dissertation Fellow.

Please register to attend.

My dissertation, exploring the relationship between bodies, values, and society, offers a philosophical framework for making sense of the lived experience of illness. Working at the intersections of phenomenology and critical disability studies, I develop a critical phenomenology of illness; that is, a non-normate or crip analysis of ill bodies that moves beyond ableist frameworks of illness, health, healing, and life.

Let's Talk - Friday 1-3PM

Meet with Counseling Services Juliene Fresnedi at the Center for Multicultural Academic Excellence (Oregon Hall-Room 130) or click here: https://zoom.us/j/92243720320

Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.

Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:

Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it. Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling. Would like to consult with a CS staff member about what actual therapy looks like. Would like to meet with one of our CS identity-based specialists. Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.

How does Let’s Talk work?

Let’s Talk will be offered via Zoom and/or in satellite locations across campus. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.

Making the Most of Secondary Data in Market Research
December 8
4:00–5:30 p.m.

The process of locating, synthesizing, and repurposing existing data—known as secondary research—is critical to shaping and supplementing an entrepreneur's market research process.

In this seminar, participants will develop a basic understanding of market research principles and how primary and secondary data complement each other in the research process. Participants will learn how to apply pre-existing data to their unique research scenarios.

We will also discuss common types and sources of secondary research, developing efficient search strategies, and how to leverage the power of open web searching to uncover otherwise obscure information sources.

Participants will have the opportunity to work through research scenarios for determining industry fit, mapping out competitors, and identifying and understanding target customer populations. Bring their own questions and research topics to work on with the group.

This event is part of the Women's Innovation Network (WIN) 2022-2023 seminar series. WIN is a joint initiative between the University of Oregon and Onward Eugene. Our 2022-2023 seminar series is sponsored by Klarquist Sparkman LLP.

Note About Gender: We intend for the words "women" and "woman" to include anyone who identifies with the word. We recognize that gender is a broad spectrum, and we aim to celebrate everyone on this spectrum. We always welcome allies and accomplices to join us.
