EUGENE, OR (April 11, 2017) – The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, located on the University of Oregon campus, presents the exhibition “Diálogos,” on view through October 8, 2017. The exhibition features recent acquisitions of art from Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States.
Organized by Cheryl Hartup, Associate Curator of Academic Programs and Latin American Art, “Diálogos” — the Spanish word for dialogues— activates exchanges between art and artists, the viewer and the object, and the museum and the communities it serves. The exhibition features fifteen prints, photographs, kinetic sculptures, and mixed media objects by artists from Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and the United States.
“‘Diálogos’ began with the conversations I saw taking place between works of art, and I installed objects in pairs and small groups to reflect these interchanges,” says Hartup. “Each label begins with a question to start an exchange with the viewer.” › Continue reading
April 17, 2017 – The University of Oregon’s Charles Martinez was recently named a Philip H. Knight Professor for his leadership in prevention science and commitment to improving education, health and social services for underserved communities.
The UO College of Education faculty member, director of the Center for Equity Promotion and former vice president for institutional equity and diversity joined the UO nearly 20 years ago. He has used his many academic, administrative and community roles to advance equity and inclusion at the university, across Oregon, and around the world.
“It is fitting that Charles’ lifetime body of work on equity, inclusion and the education of Latino children in both the United States and Latin America has been recognized by receipt of a Knight Professorship,” said Randy Kamphaus, dean of the College of Education. “The Society for Prevention Research and many others have praised his cutting-edge work for its contributions to the field and society.” › Continue reading

On May 25, the Center for the Study of Women in Society and the Knight School of Law will celebrate the release of CSWS director Michelle McKinley’s book, Fractional Freedoms: Slavery, Intimacy, and Legal Mobilization in Colonial Lima, 1600-1700 (Cambridge University Press, October 2016). This event includes a panel discussion starting at 10 a.m., with a roundtable at 2 p.m., and lunch in between. The book explores domestic slavery and what Professor McKinley terms “fractional freedoms” in the context of colonial Peru.
Professor McKinley, in addition to running CSWS, is a CLLAS faculty affiliate and the Bernard B. Kliks Associate Professor of Law at the University of Oregon School of Law. She received the Surrency Prize in 2011 for her article of the same title and completed this book while a fellow in residence at Princeton University’s Program in Law and Public Affairs.

Organized by the Center for the Study of Women in Society’s Américas Research Interest Group, this roundtable will explore how gendered violence in Guatemala leads indigenous women to flee the country as refugees to seek asylum in the United States. By putting experts on gendered violence in Central America into conversation with Oregon-based asylum attorneys, the roundtable will explore the legal reforms with greatest potential to provide effective justice for its survivors. The roundtable will address many critical questions such as: in countries with multiple forms of violence and weak rule of law, what resources are available to displaced women seeking justice and security? What obstacles to gendered justice in Guatemala push women to leave the country? Once in the U.S., what factors prevent women from seeking protection through asylum, and what resources help them create new systems of support and autonomy?
