Music Industry Fair Announcement

Ever wonder what it takes to break into the music business? Find out at UO’s annual Music Industry Fair on Friday, November 15th from 1:00 – 4:00 PM in Aasen-Hull Hall (Room 190) at the Frohnmayer Music Building.

The event will feature more than 30 tables hosted by industry experts from leading local music businesses and organizations in a variety of categories including: Music Technology & Audio Production, Venues & Events Management, Music Business & Licensing, Music for Film & Commercial Media, Classical Performing Arts, and Instrument Building & Trade Skills.

Students will have the opportunity to get one-on-one advice from music business veterans about everything from how to book gigs, to navigating the ins and outs of music licensing, running a non-profit arts organization, or starting your own entrepreneurial entertainment venture.

The School of Music and Dance (SOMD) organized the event in collaboration with the on-campus Music Industry Collective (MIC), a student-led club from the Lundquist College of Business. But it also includes interdisciplinary industry experts from across the university, such as an entertainment attorney from the School of Law and academic advisors from the School of Planning, Public Policy and Management (PPPM), Lundquist College of Business, and Cinema Studies.

Study abroad in Greece this summer with UO art faculty Carla Bengtson and Colleen Choquette-Raphael

The unique landscape of the Greek islands and the multilayered city of Athens provide the setting for this intensive three-week studio art course. Through a series of lectures, fieldwork, daily excursions to archaeological sites and museums, contemporary galleries and engagement with land and sea, students will have the opportunity to weave their experience of place and consideration of history and art into the practice of making art. Our methods will be interdisciplinary and open to various modes of expression, which might include but are not limited to, drawing and painting, text, performance, photography, sound and video.

Join us for “Engaged Humanities: Partnerships between Academia and Tribal Communities”

“Engaged Humanities: Partnerships between Academia and Tribal Communities”
November 8–9, 2019
Giustina Ballroom, Ford Alumni Center
1720 E. 13th Ave.
University of Oregon
Eugene, Oregon (Kalapuya Ilihi)
Join us on November 8 and 9 for the annual conference of the Western Humanities Alliance “Engaged Humanities: Partnerships between Academia and Tribal Communities” hosted by the Oregon Humanities Center and University of Oregon’s Native American Studies program.
Bringing together an impressive group of native scholars, community members, tribal leaders, and UO faculty and students, the conference will explore the challenges and opportunities of collaborations between the academy and America’s native and First Nations communities to use the arts and humanities to advance the public good.
“Native American Studies and the Native Strategies Group are really excited to partner with the Oregon Humanities Center for this conference,” says Dr. Kirby Brown, Assistant Professor of English and Native American Studies. “As a public institution in a state with nine federally recognized tribes and whose existence is inextricably tied to histories of dispossession and colonial violence, the University of Oregon must continue to cultivate and strengthen ties with tribal nations. Making space for Indigenous scholars, filmmakers, performers, community members, staff, and students to come together and share the important work going on at our institutions and across our communities is one way to honor those commitments.”
Featured keynote speakers include Fawn Sharp (Quinault Indian Nation), President, and Clarita Lefthand-Begay (Diné Nation), University of Washington professor, who will address Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples; and Mishuana Goeman (Tonawanda Band of Seneca), UCLA professor of American Indian Studies, who will speak on “Beyond Settler Apologies: Land Grant Institutions and Indigenous Futurities.”
In addition, numerous native scholars, community members, and tribal leaders will participate in ceremonies, panels, a concert reading and discussion of the play Salmon is Everything by UO Theatre Arts Professor Theresa May, and a film screening and discussion of the social justice documentary Promised Land. The film documents the struggles for federal recognition by the Chinook and Duwamish tribal nations. Filmmaker Sarah Salcedo and Tony Johnson (Chinook Indian Nation) will participate in the discussion.
The University of Oregon and the City of Eugene are situated on Kalapuya Ilihi, the traditional homelands and political territories of the Kalapuya peoples, whose descendants are now citizens of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians.
The conference is free and open to the public. The conference-rate hotel is The Phoenix Inn Suites, 850 Franklin Blvd. The WHA Conference room block is available until October 7, 2019. To make reservations, please call 541-344-0001 (toll free 800-344-0131) and ask for the Western Humanities Alliance Room Block. For more information and the complete program go to:
