Upcoming Events

* Monday Night at the Newman Center: "Exorcism - What's Real? What's Hollywood?"

We've all seen the movies and heard the stories, but what is exorcism really like in the Catholic Church? Come to the Newman Center Monday night and hear from a real-life, Vatican-trained and Church-approved exorcist from right here in Indiana!

Father Vince Lampert is a priest of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. He is a full-time pastor at Sts. Francis and Clare Parish in Greenwood, and in 2005 was asked by Archbishop Daniel Buechlein to be trained to serve as the archdiocese’s official exorcist. He trained under two exorcists at the Vatican, and is one of about fifty trained exorcists serving in US dioceses today.

He will talk about the process and role of exorcism in the Church today, and how his experience lines up with what we see in the movies. There will also be time for questions.

The Newman Center's weekly Dinner & Discussion begins with dinner at 5:30, followed by the discussion from 6-7. We are located at 1901 Lincoln Avenue, just across the street from the Koch Center side of UE's front oval.

Everyone is welcome! E-mail Mike Roesch at mr201 with any questions.

* GI Generation to Be Topic of UE's Fiddick Lecture on October 10

Theodore WilsonEvansville native Theodore Wilson, University of Kansas professor of history, will be the speaker at the University of Evansville’s Thomas C. Fiddick Memorial Lecture on October 10. The lecture starts at 7:00 p.m., in Eykamp Hall, Room 251, Ridgway University Center. This event, which is sponsored by UE’s Department of History, is free and open to the public.

Wilson’s topic will be "The GI Generation: Sending American Soldiers into Battle in World War II."

“Theodore Wilson is one of the most distinguished historians of the Second World War working in America today, and we are thrilled to bring him to UE to deliver the Fiddick Lecture and interact with students in class,” said James MacLeod, UE professor of history and director of the Fiddick Memorial Lecture.

MacLeod added “As we mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day and other battles where young Americans changed the course of world history, it is the perfect time to hear from one of the world’s foremost authorities on the United States Military between 1941 and 1945.”

Wilson earned his PhD from Indiana University in 1966 and has been a professor at the University of Kansas since 1965. His research has focused on the intersections of politics, national security policies, and foreign affairs between 1940 and 1975, and in recent years chiefly on the military dimensions of World War II. A recipient of Guggenheim and NEH fellowships, Wilson has held visiting appointments at the US Army Command and General Staff College, Leicester University, and University College Dublin. He served as Senior Research Fellow during 1989-91 at the US Army Center of Military History.

He is the author or editor of such works as The First Summit: Roosevelt and Churchill at Placentia Bay, 1941; Makers of American Diplomacy; D-Day 1944, and Victory in Europe, 1945: From World War to Cold War. He is the general editor of the University Press of Kansas series, Modern War Studies. Forthcoming books include Coalition Warfare: A History and Building Warriors: The Selection and Training of U.S. Ground Combat Forces in World War II.

Thomas Fiddick, for whom the Fiddick Memorial Lecture is named, was a professor of history at UE from 1963 to 2002. He was a dedicated teacher, productive scholar, and a tireless fighter in the cause of justice. His death on the day of his retirement in 2002 stunned the UE community, especially his former students. It was the efforts of those students, along with Fiddick’s friends and the University, which led to the establishment of the Thomas C. Fiddick Memorial Lecture.

“The Fiddick Lecture is one of the best events of the year, as we get to celebrate the career of a truly outstanding faculty member here at UE,” MacLeod explained. “Tom Fiddick was a brilliant scholar and an incredible teacher who made a life-transforming impact on generations of students.”

For more information, please contact the UE Department of History at 812-488-2963.

* UE Theatre Opens Season with Award-Winning Musical The Wild Party

The University of Evansville Department of Theatre proudly announces a dynamic start to its 2014–2015 season—Andrew Lippa’s award-winning musical The Wild Party, opening Friday Sept. 26, at 7:30 p.m. in UE’s Shanklin Theatre. Additional performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 27, Oct. 2, 3, 4, and at 2:00 p.m. on Sept. 28 and Oct. 5.

After making its premiere at New York’s Manhattan Theatre Club in 2000, this racy musical was hailed by The Chicago Tribune as a “tasty stew of jazz, blues, gospel, and Tin Pan Alley…a sexy, sweaty, gloriously disorienting voyage.” In Manhattan during Prohibition, two tempestuous lovers, Queenie and Burrs, collude to throw a party to end all parties. With a guest list chock-full of colorful and evocative characters, the evening of decadence ends in disaster and irreversible violence. The Roaring Twenties were fueled with jazz and gin, and Lippa’s award-winning and pulse-racing score infuses this glitterati-filled musical with an addictive vibrancy and a passionate and unforgettable finale.

The Wild Party is directed by R. Scott Lank, Professor of Theatre and features a 9-person student orchestra, led by musical director Gregory B. Rike, Professor of Music. Associate Professor of Theatre Eric Renschler serves as the scenic designer; Professor of Theatre Patti McCrory is the costume designer; Sarah Stolnack, a senior from Seattle, Wash., is the lighting designer; Professor of Theatre Diane Brewer is the dramaturg; guest artist and 2012 alumnus, BJ Brooks, is the sound designer; Sarah Dory, a senior from Green Castle, Ind., serves as the associate scenic designer; and Alexis Richards, a senior from Fort Denver, Colo., serves as the associate lighting designer.

The cast features Oriana Lada, a senior from St. Paul, Minn., as Queenie and Robin Coppock, a senior from Richland, Wash., as Burrs, the hosts of the uproarious party. The 18- person cast also features Maryam Louise Abdi, a senior from Kenmore, Wash., as Kate and DéYonté Jenkins, a junior from Portland, Tenn., as Black.

Ticket prices are $17 for adults and $15 for senior adults, students and UE faculty and staff. UE students may obtain one free student rush ticket beginning at noon on the day of the performance they wish to attend. Subscriptions for the four-play Shanklin Theatre season are still available for $44 for adults and $38 for senior adults, students, and UE faculty. Including the musical

The Wild Party, a season subscription also includes Macbeth, by William Shakespeare, Nov. 14 through 23; Dancing at Lughnasa, by Brian Friel, Feb. 20 through Mar. 1; and A Streetcar Named Desire, by Tennessee Williams, Apr. 17-26. Tickets may be purchased by calling 812-488– 2031, Monday through Friday, noon to 5:00 p.m.

* Andiron Lecture by Paul Parkison - Should School Curriculum be Cathartic?

Paul Parkison, associate professor and chair of the School of Education, will be the speaker at the Andiron Lecture on October 1. The lecture begins at 4 p.m. in Eykamp 252, Ridgway University Center. A social hour with beverages precedes each lecture at 3:45 p.m. All the Andiron Lectures are free and open to the public.

Parkison completed an EdD in curriculum and instruction from the University of Memphis in 2004. He earned an MA in political science from Vanderbilt University and a BA in history and political science at Wabash College. Prior to working at UE, Parkison was chair of the Department of Teacher Education at the University of Southern Indiana. He served as a social studies teacher at the middle school and secondary levels for 11 years prior to his time at USI.

His primary research interests include education policy analysis and teacher identity formation and maintenance. Formal school curriculum represents a mechanism through which social forces shape the human psyche and could facilitate the catharsis that enables authenticity for each individual. This lecture will examine institutional barriers that present obstacles to a cathartic education. Consideration of the assumed dichotomous and antagonistic relationship between mimesis (lived experience/curriculum) and the potential catharsis offered by the school curriculum exposes fractures in the hegemony of standards, high-stakes testing, and the accountability paradigm and reveals the potential for re-engaging with issues of citizenship and learner-centered curricula.

For further information, call the series coordinator Annette Parks at 812-488-1070 or the William L. Ridgway College, College of Arts and Sciences at 812-488-2589.

* Aces Hold Heritage Federal Credit Union Breakfast

Over 120 student-athletes were honored on Thursday as the University of Evansville held its 7th Annual Student-Athlete Academic Honors Breakfast, which was sponsored by Heritage Federal Credit Union.

“Each year, the Student-Athlete Academic Honors Breakfast is an opportunity to celebrate the academic achievement of our student-athletes as well as thank those individuals who make a significant impact in the student-athlete experience,” said Sarah Solinsky, Senior Associate Athletics Director/Senior Woman Administrator.

“From our coaches recruiting outstanding student-athletes who compete in the classroom, to our faculty who are supportive in accommodating the challenges with missed class time due to competition, and our academic advising team providing the support services, the student-athlete experience is greatly enhanced by these collective efforts.”

Evansville finished 2nd in the MVC with a 3.302 GPA, narrowly missing a third consecutive MVC Academic Excellence Award by just .003. Equally impressive was the fact that 49% of the student-athletes at UE earned a 3.5 in at least one semester during the 2013-14 academic year.

Held on Thursday morning, the breakfast featured speakers Dr. Tom Kazee, Director of Athletics Mark Spencer, Steve Bugg of Heritage Federal Credit Union and women’s basketball player Khristian Hart.

The weekend begins with a tilt at Indiana State on Friday at 6 p.m. CT before the team travels a few hours west to take on Illinois State in a rare Sunday match at 1 p.m.

Evansville is coming off of a 3-1 defeat in the MVC opener last weekend at SIU. Ashley Ring paced the Aces with 13 kills while freshman Genesis Miranda finished the night with 12. The duo has been the top 1-2 punch in the league, averaging a league-best 6.78 kills per set.

Defense has been a staple for UE, who continues to lead the league with 2.75 blocks per set. Illinois State checks in second with an average of 2.34.

Indiana State enters Friday’s tilt with an 8-5 mark after falling in their first two league matches last weekend. The Sycamores lost a 3-2 decision at Missouri State before falling by a 3-0 final to Wichita State on Saturday.

Offensively, Indiana State poses one of the top threats in the conference, ranking second in hitting (.221), assists (12.02/set) and kills (12.86/set). Cassandra Willis has hit her way to a .409 average thus far, second in the conference.

Illinois State sits atop the MVC standings with an 8-5 record, but a perfect 2-0 mark in league action. The Redbirds were extremely impressive in the first weekend of conference action, taking road sweeps over Wichita State and Missouri State.

The Redbirds have allowed the opposition to hit just .162 this year, the lowest average in the league by .25 percentage points. Senior Ashley Rosch is currently fourth in the Valley with her average of 3.42 kills per set.

Next weekend, the Aces return home to take on league foes Bradley and Loyola.
