Come on out to the Faculty Club this week–we’re open Wednesday and Thursday from 5 to 8:00.
It’s always fun & easy to pair JSMA events with a visit to the Faculty Club. Wednesday our colleague Ina Asim (History) is giving a 5:30 talk right upstairs in the JSMA galleries, on “Reflections of the Cosmic Web: Intricate Patterns in Daoist Art.” Drop in for a cosmic drink before or afterwards. And later on, at 7:00 Wednesday, the Schnitzer Cinema series will be showing “Saving Brinton,” an intriguing film about the discovery (in an Iowa farmhouse basement) of a trove of early motion pictures, including “rare footage of Teddy Roosevelt, the first moving images from Burma, and a lost relic from special effects inventor Georges Méliés.”
Thursday we officially welcome new faculty with a ceremonial induction into the membership of the Faculty Club. No, just kidding, there will be no ritual (and everyone’s automatically a member), but we will toast our new colleagues and briefly introduce each one. Come and meet the rising stars of the UO!
Yours, James Harper
Chair of the Faculty Club Board
