Magnetic detection “is one part of their toolkit for being really efficient navigators,” says the study’s lead author, Nathan Putman, a postdoctoral researcher at Oregon State University in Corvallis. The fish also use their sense of smell to help them locate the exact stream of their birth. (see also Smithsonian, Wired,Wall Street Journal, New York Times)

Are scientists underestimating ‘super quakes’? (Christian Science Monitor)

OSU addresses sexual violence in wake of attacks (Gazette-Times)

Two 20-year-old women were attacked last month within 11 days of each other — one on Oregon State University campus and the other less than a mile north of campus. Although statistics reveal a woman is much more likely to become a victim of sexual assault among acquaintances than by a stranger, the seemingly random assaults have opened a dialogue on campus about sexual violence in general. (see also Register-Guard)

Derelict boat, possible tsunami debris, removed from Gleneden Beach (The News Guard)

The craft was removed by Drayton Excavation and taken to a local landfill. Biologists Steve Rumrill and Justin Ainsworth with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and a team of scientists from Oregon State University — Jessica Miller, John Chapman, and Gayle Hansen — inspected the debris.

Lectures and seminars

NEW! Silencing the Past:  Historiographical categories such as The Enlightenment, the Scientific Revolution, Puritanism, the Reformation, and the Renaissance are blinding.  These categories churn out endless condescending, patronizing narratives of the global south and they have marginalized entire territories –  rendering invisible the richness, complexity, and intellectual vibrancy of Hispanic societies.  Jorge Cañizares-Esguerra will present the George and Dorothy Carson Memorial Lecture in LaSells Stewart Center C&E Auditorium on Feb. 11, 7 p.m.

NEW! The ‘Republic of Letters’ in Colonial America: (But…Whose Letters?): This narrative of the Republic of Letters and the Public Sphere might work well in Anglo America and parts of France but it fails dismally elsewhere. Historians are hard pressed to find evidence of publics and republics in the Iberian Atlantic such as humanist epistolary networks, coffee shops, salons, and print culture.   At 11 a.m. on Feb. 12 in the MU Boardroom, Cañizares-Esguerra will seek to identify the kinds of epistolary networks that actually existed in colonial Spanish America.
