April 6 12:00 a.m.

This week, as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), UO SVPE is focusing on SUPPORT. We recognize that support is an important part of healing and sustaining the critical work of creating a community that is dedicated to preventing sexual violence. We also recognize that the present COVID-19 health crisis can lead to feelings of isolation for some. Over the course of this week (April 6-10), the UO Sexual Violence Prevention and Education (SVPE) team will be sharing resources for how to access the support you deserve and ideas for how to best support survivors during this time in particular. 

Social distancing does not mean that you are alone. We are here for you. Preventing sexual violence requires all of us, particularly right now. To join the conversation and learn more, follow us on Instagram and Facebook:

April is nationally recognized as Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), which is symbolized by a teal ribbon, representing our commitment to supporting survivors. Letting survivors know that we believe, support, and care about them is critical, especially when necessary social distancing measures can result in increased isolation for some.

Today is the National SAAM Day of Action and, as such, we are inviting all students, faculty, and staff to submit a picture or 10 second video of themselves in teal along with a short message of why it's important to continue showing support for survivors during the current COVID-19 health crisis.

We will be accepting these submissions through the end of today and will share them on our social media during SAAM. Please follow us on Instagram to learn more about how to participate and to see others' responses! **Participants will be entered into a drawing to win a variety of gift cards!**

Museum of Natural and Cultural History

Racing to Change chronicles the civil rights movement in Eugene, Oregon, during the 1960s and 1970s—a time of great upheaval, conflict, and celebration as new voices clashed with traditional organizations of power. Co-developed by the Museum of Natural and Cultural History and Oregon Black Pioneers, the exhibit illuminates legacies of racism and the unceasing efforts of Oregon's Black communities to bring about change. 

Through photographs, recorded interviews, and historical archives, Racing to Change explores how racist policies and attitudes created a pressing need for bold civil rights activism in Eugene. Firsthand accounts from movement organizers, former UO students, elected officials, and other members of Oregon's black communities paint a vivid picture of the area's past, and urge us to take part in building a more just future. On view through May 10, 2020.

April 9–18
Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

Immerse yourself in an interactive dance exhibit directed by choreographer Darion Smith in collaboration with composer Juliet Palmer and dancers. The 45-minute interactive dance exhibit and performance is based on nonverbal communication through the lens of Carla Bengtson's work with Western fence lizards (Sceloporus occidentalis) commonly known as the blue-belly. Smith, Palmer, and dancers create a world where sound and movement challenge our senses to reexamine our surroundings and how gesture, innate or learned, reads and is read.

This exhibition is part of a collaborative creative project led by UO Professor of Art Carla Bengtson that merges art, science, dance, music, and olfaction. Inspired by the research of Dr. Emilia Martins (Arizona State University) on the group learned, gestural language of Western fence lizards, Every Word was Once an Animal explores the overlapping forces of nature and culture between humans, animals, and language. The interdisciplinary exhibition blends Bengston’s playful investigations into the lifeworlds of nonhuman animals with choreographer Darion Smith’s interest in embodied language, composer Juliet Palmer’s investigations into the material possibilities and constraints of human and nonhuman utterance, and artist Jessie Rose Vala’s evocations of the intimate relationship between sculptural form and the mythic mind.

The University of Oregon–sponsored Robert and Mabel Ruhl Lecture on April 10, featuring Nikole Hannah-Jones, is canceled and will be rescheduled during the 2020–21 academic year. We apologize for any inconvenience.

 

The state of Oregon is mandating cancelation of events and gatherings of more than 250 people through April 8, 2020, and the UO is canceling nonessential events and gatherings of more than 50 people on campus until further notice. 

 

The UO is coordinating with Lane County Public Health, the Oregon Health Authority, and federal health officials to proactively monitor and respond to novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) to protect the health and well-being of our campus community.

 

For more information on how the university is responding and how to prevent exposure, please visit the UO coronavirus webpage.

*****************************************************

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, has been shaped by it. “The 1619 Project” features all black American authors, activists, journalists, and more, spreading its heartbreaking and absolutely essential message worldwide.

In her talk, Hannah-Jones will explore how, despite our progress, we must remain vigilant in the vital fight against racial inequality, and how it is ethically imperative to reassess longstanding narratives if we want to get closer to the truth and move forward into a better future, together. 

 

About Nikole Hannah-Jones

Nikole Hannah-Jones is a MacArthur Genius, winner of the National Book Award, and a New York Times Magazine staff writer. She has also received a Peabody Award, a George Polk Award for radio reporting, and the National Magazine Award for journalism that illuminates issues of national importance.
