Title---Second Thoughts of aFirst Amendment Radical

Thu, 02/27/2014 - 5:15pm
Thursday, February 27, 2014 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

There is a growing sense in America that the game is rigged; that the American dream is fantasy; and that hard work, smarts and a higher education may not buy you bupkis.  Former NEA chair John Frohnmayer argues that we are not powerless, that there a rules by which we can craft a new social contract and if we don't, we deserve what we get, namely, bupkis.   With degrees in American History, Ethics and Law from Stanford, Chicago and Oregon, John Frohnmayer's thoughts on the First Amendment first gained national attention when he was Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts during the first Bush Administration.

 His books Leaving Town Alive and Out of Tune: Listening to the First Amendment further the national debate over free speech, government funding of the arts, censorship, politics and obscenity.  From his award winning commentaries on public radio to his musical comedy SPIN, produced by Oregon State in 2008,  Frohnmayer's insight and humor help us to sort out the issues of democracy.

The lecture, “Second Thoughts of a First Amendment Radical: Slathering Politics, Religion, Philosophy and Art on Burned American Toast,” is free and open to the public.

John Fronmayer's thoughts on the First Amendment first gained national attention when he was Chairman of the National endowment for the Arts during the first Bush Administration.  His books Leaving Town Alive and Out of Tune:  Listening to the First Amendment furthered the national debate over free speech, government funding of the arts, censorship, politics and obscenity.  From his award winning commentaries on public radio to his musical comedy SPIN, produced by Oregon State in 2008, Frohnmayer's insight and humor help us to sort out the issues of democracy.

How to Write on Spanish American Sexuality

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 5:17pm
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

A cultural constructivist view of the Hispanic honor code has framed all discussions of colonial Spanish American sexuality, despite its very loose on-the-ground interpretation in both the New and Old Worlds. It would be more useful to consider Spanish American sexuality within the historiography of “emotional communties” or “emotional regimes.”  Von Germeten will argue in her next book project that the framework of the history of emotions can provide a more useful structure for analyzing the topic of female colonial sexual agency, especially in the context of the controversial topic of professional sex work.

Dr. von Germeten teaches courses in Latin American and Spanish history.   Her latest book Violent Delights, Violent Ends:  Sex, Race & Honor in Colonial Cartagena de Indias was published by the University of New Mexico Press in 2013.

The Oregon Climate Change Research Institute (OCCRI) and the Environmental Arts and Humanities Initiative (EAHI) would like to invite you to the second in a series of "braided lectures" designed to spur conversations about climate change among people of different academic backgrounds.

Critical Questions Lecture Series

Tue, 02/25/2014 - 5:14pm
Tuesday, February 25, 2014 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

The French theorist Bruno Latour continues to expand his already extensive influence in the social sciences, and is slowly emerging as a force to reckon with in philosophy as well. Latour has long been known for his actor-network theory. But beginning in 1987, Latour worked in secret on a parallel philosophical system in which networks are just one among fourteen separate modes of existence. This secret system was recently unveiled in Latour's new book An Inquiry Into Modes of Existence (Harvard University Press, 2013). This lecture will examine the principal features of Latour's new system and ask whether Latour's proclaimed philosophical shift is significant in its own right, and also whether it might have new implications for the various fields that take inspiration from Latour's work.

Graham Harman is Distinguished University Professor of Philosophy at the American University in Cairo. He is the author of ten books, most recently Weird Realism: Lovecraft and Philosophy (2012), The Quadruple Object (2011), and Quentin Meillassoux: Philosophy in the Making (2011). He is the editor of the Speculative Realism book series at Edinburgh University Press, and (with Bruno Latour) co-editor of the New Metaphysics book series at Open Humanities Press.
