What's Happening Today

* Former Death Row Inmate to Speak at UE Today

Anthony Ray Hinton will speak at the University of Evansville as part of the Honors Program Lecture Series today - Monday, October 30 - at 6:00 p.m. in Eykamp Hall Room 251, Ridgway University Center. This event is free to the public and seating is limited - first come, first served.

Hinton was falsely accused of committing two murders outside of Birmingham, Alabama, in 1985. He was wrongly convicted and spent nearly 30 years on Alabama’s death row before he was exonerated and freed in April 2015. A deeply compelling speaker, he has become a community educator and powerful advocate against the death penalty who speaks nationally about the urgent need for criminal justice reform.

Hinton was featured in the book, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, by author and attorney Bryan Stevenson.

Stevenson, who managed Hinton’s sentencing appeal, is also the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system.

You can learn more about the event on the Honors Program webpage.

* Pixley presenting exhibit in UE's Melvin Peterson Gallery

“Putting on Airs,” an exhibit of prints by artist Lisa Pixley, will be displayed at the University of Evansville’s Melvin Peterson Gallery from October 30-December 9.

Today - Thursday, November 9 - there will be a reception for Pixley at 6:30 p.m., and a lecture by the artist at 7:00 p.m. These events, which are free and open to the public, are part of the Efroymson Family Fund Emerging Contemporary Artist Lecture Series.

An artist printmaker located in Portland, Maine, Pixley earned her BFA with a concentration in painting from the Maine College of Art. After graduation, she began a commercial and artistic practice focusing on the craft of print. Pixley studied as an apprentice with David Wolfe of Wolfe Editions, where she worked closely with artists such as Charlie Hewitt and Allison Hildreth.

In 2009 Pixley founded Pickwick Independent Press in Portland, a for profit shared access print studio where she worked as director, master printer, and events coordinator, while also maintaining an active art practice in the medium of printmaking.

Pixley is currently developing a new venture: WIP Editions. WIP Editions will function as a storefront studio entity as well as an online presence. Under the imprint of WIP Editions, she will be developing a body of work showcasing suites of prints of her work as well as the work of invited artists.

The Melvin Peterson Gallery is located at 1935 Lincoln Avenue on the corner of Lincoln and Weinbach Avenues in Evansville.

* This Week in Music: Wind Ensemble and Orchestra kick off Victory Series with Halloween Bash

The University of Evansville will present the first concert of its Victory Series in downtown Evansville tonight - October 31, Halloween night. The Halloween Bash will include performances by two of the department of music’s premier ensembles, the University Symphony Orchestra and Wind Ensemble.

The Halloween theme will add a spooky flavor the evening’s event. Works to be performed by the Wind Ensemble will include pieces like Eric Whitacre’s Ghost Train and Daniel Bukvich’s Voodoo. Though its title invokes thoughts of magic or religion, Voodoo was composed with an educational objective – get performers to listen to each other more carefully. It achieves that goal by requiring the piece to be performed from memory, without a conductor, in complete darkness. It is both a theatrical and musical work, including use of flashlights, arm waving, singing, and performing in unusual ways. The piece calls to mind ‘sounds of the jungle’, and should contribute to the evening’s Halloween atmosphere.

The Wind Ensemble is led by UE’s director of bands, Kenneth Steinsultz.

Modest Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain will be among the selections performed by the orchestra. The work, which gained prominence in the Disney movie classic Fantasia, is an eerie depiction of the celebration of the witches’ Sabbath. The UE Orchestra will also be performing Dvorak’s The Noon Witch. Based on a Czech legend, The Noon Witch is a cautionary warning for children who choose not to behave.

Chun-Ming (Jimmy) Chen conducts the UE Orchestra.

In addition to performances by the ensembles, the evening will include an Old Hallows Eve flavor, including students performing in costume and a costume contest for audience members.

Audience members interested in the costume contests should plan to arrive at the Victory by 7:15 p.m. for judging. Winners will be recognized during the concert and receive an award.

And of course, what would October 31 be without some candy for trick-or-treaters.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Victory Theatre downtown and is free and open to the public.

* Today - Study Abroad: A View from the Other Side

In this presentation, Norma Franklin (co-director of the Jezreel Expedition) will talk about the value of student study abroad experiences from her perspective as an Israeli archaeologist. Before co-directing the Jezreel Expedition with UE’s Jennie Ebeling, Franklin supervised hundreds of American college students as a senior staff member of the Megiddo (biblical Armageddon) excavations and is thus very familiar with the challenges and rewards of the student study abroad experience. This presentation will be a great resource for students who have studied abroad or who are interested in a study abroad experience.

The presentation will be held today - Monday, November 13 - in Eykamp Hall, Room 253, Ridgway University Center from 4:00-5:00 p.m.

* SIAM Student Chapter Talk Series - Shouhong Wang

Shouhong Wang, professor of mathematics at Indiana University, will give a talk to Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) chapter today. The lecture will begin at 3:00 p.m. in Room 100, Koch Center for Engineering and Science. The title of Wang's lecture is "Interplay between Mathematics and Physics".

In recent years, Wang has made a serious attempt to derive experimentally verifiable laws of nature based only on a few fundamental principles, aiming to answer challenging questions concerning the dark matter and dark energy phenomena, and the structure of black hole and the Universe. In this talk, Wang will use theories of gravity and black holes (Galileo, Newton, Einstein, as well as recent developments) to describe the symbiotic interplay between mathematics and physics.

Professor Wang received his Ph.D. from Lanzhou University in 1988 and joined Indiana University in 1989. Wang is an elected fellow of American Mathematical Society for his contributions to geophysical fluid mechanics, and his work has been supported by grants from the Office of Naval Research and the National Science Foundation.

* UE to Show Documentary "8 Borders, 8 Days"

The documentary 8 Borders, 8 Days will be shown Tuesday, November 14, at 6:00 p.m. in Room 170 of the Schroeder School of Business Building. The screening will be followed by an interactive discussion with the movie’s director Amanda Bailly, UE philosophy professor Derek Jones, and a panel of Syrian and American students. The event is free and open to the public.

The film follows a Syrian family who were not accepted for resettlement to the US and instead traveled with smugglers in a raft to Europe.

"The majority of people in the United States who want to close our doors to refugees have never actually heard the voices of the people affected,” said Bailly. “This film tells the story of three of them, and they’re three of the strongest, most resilient human beings I’ve ever met."

8 Borders, 8 Days premiered to sold-out screenings at the Florida Film Festival and Seattle International Film Festival, where it was awarded a $50,000 impact filmmaking grant. It has been called "raw, emotional," and "unblinking."

Donations will be accepted at the event for the Karam Foundation, a non-profit organization on a mission to build a better future for Syria. The foundation develops innovative education programs for Syrian refugee youth, distributes smart aid to Syrian families, and funds sustainable development projects initiated by Syrians for Syrians.

The screening and panel discussion is being co-sponsored by Scholars for Syria and Books Not Bombs, a student-led campaign aimed at creating scholarships for displaced Syrian students. Through donations at the event and online, Scholars for Syria and Books Not Bombs hope to add to the Karam Foundation fund that is empowering Syrian refugees to succeed in school and beyond.

For more information on the event at UE, call 732-239-4139, e-mail gv15@evansville.edu or go to www.facebook.com/events/1987428101542302/?active_tab=about.

* Hemminger to discuss morality and distribution of wealth at Andiron Lecture

UE professor emeritus Bill Hemminger will be the speaker for the Andiron Lecture on November 1. The lecture is set for 4:00 p.m. in Eykamp Hall, Room 252, Ridgway University Center. Hemminger will be discussing “Morality and the Distribution of Wealth.”

A well-known 1972 essay by Peter Singer makes the extraordinary point that affluent people (and nations) should be morally constrained to provide for the well-being of impoverished people elsewhere. Hemminger's talk offers an update on Singer's thought.

Hemminger served for a number of years as chair of UE’s Department of English. He also taught in the Department of Foreign Languages. He was a recipient of the Outstanding Teaching Award, the Dean’s Teaching Award, and the Sadelle and Sydney Berger Award for Service.

In addition to writing a number of books, scholarly articles, fiction, and poetry, he is a practicing musician and composer. His book African Son was named Peace Corps Writers’ 2013 Best Travel Book.

Hemminger has worked in Madagascar and Cameroon under the auspices of the Fulbright Program. A life-long believer in the importance of public service, Hemminger has been a Peace Corps volunteer, has worked in rural development in El Salvador, and since retirement has been involved in a number of service projects in Evansville. It is this local experience that has most greatly influenced the substance of his lecture.

* Aces battle, but fall to Drake, 1-0

Despite a flurry of chances late, the University of Evansville men's soccer team was unable to find an equalizer as the Aces fell to Drake, 1-0, on Saturday evening at Arad McCutchan Stadium.

"It's a cruel game, the sport of soccer. They had one shot in the second half and they scored. We had two off the post, three or four saved off the line and missed a penalty kick," said Aces men's soccer head coach Marshall Ray. "It wasn't for a lack of effort or a lack of ability to create chances we just didn't finish the chances we got. We were a bit unlucky and they finished the one chance they had. I have to give them credit and Caden (McCullough) had a great game this evening in goal for them.

Senior midfielders Ian McGrath and Arlick Ntabana led the Aces with three shots each. In goal, senior Matthew Keller made a pair of saves, allowing one goal. For the Bulldogs, Alex Peterson scored the lone goal in the match, while Antonio Sanchez and Leroy Enzugusi each had a pair of shots.

The first half passed without much event as the two sides combined for just five goals in the opening half.

Evansville looked poised to find its breakthrough in the 68th minute as the Aces fired three shots on-goal that were either blocked or saved.

In the 80th minute, Drake scored after a scrum in the box as the ball fell to the feet of Peterson, who finished it into the back of the net. The Aces had a pair of chances to equalize in the final five minutes. After a foul in the box, McGrath stepped to the spot for a penalty kick that was saved by Bulldog goalkeeper Caden McCullough.

With the clock ticking under 10 seconds, freshman Filip Johansson took one final shot from just inside the box that curled towards goal and just glanced off the post and out as the horn sounded.

In the match, Evansville out-shot Drake, 14-6, while the Bulldogs held a 4-2 advantage on corner kicks.

The Aces wrap-up a three-match homestand on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. against Northern Kentucky as Evansville hosts its Senior Night as well as Trick-or-Treat with the Aces.

* Check your Halloween costume

There is nothing wrong with dressing up as a favorite movie character or a fictional or non-fictional character from your favorite book for Halloween. However, cultural appropriation is the adoption or use of elements of one culture by members of a different culture. Cultural appropriation is when elements of a minority culture are used by members of the cultural majority and seen as wrongfully oppressing the minority culture or stripping it of its group identity and intellectual property rights. Before you go out, please check your Halloween costume.

Ask yourself and your friends …

• Does my costume mock cultural or religious symbols?
• Am I attempting to represent an ethnicity that is not my own?
• Would my costume trivialize historical events of human suffering?
• Does it marginalize a person with a disability?
• Does is over-sexualize a person?

Still unsure if your costume is offensive or not? Don’t be SCARED to ask questions!

You can ask:

Center of Student Engagement: ge21@evansville.edu
Disability/Counseling Services: db132@evansville.edu

* UE Volleyball takes down Southern Illinois, 3-0

Mildrelis Rodriguez led all players with 14 kills to lead the University of Evansville volleyball team to a 3-0 sweep against MVC rival Southern Illinois inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse.

Rodriguez tallied her 14 kills in 37 attempts and also registered 8 digs. Cathy Schreiber also had a great night for UE (10-14, 4-8 MVC) as she totaled 11 kills. Cassie Brooks led the way with 20 digs and Allana McInnis notched 17 assists, eight digs and two service aces. Brooks also notched two aces. 

The sweep was the first for the Purple Aces in a conference match since defeating Bradley by a 3-0 final on Oct. 3, 2014 in a home match.

Southern Illinois (5-18, 4-8 MVC) saw Patience Brown and Maggie Nedoma post seven kills apiece.

Adeline Payne had a solo block in the early going as the Purple Aces scored the opening two points of the night. Southern Illinois quickly came back to tie it at 4-4 before taking their first lead at 7-6.  SIU widened its lead to 9-6 before an Allana McInnis service ace got UE within one at 10-9. The Salukis had the answer once again and stretched their lead out to 24-19.

That is when things got interesting. Mildrelis Rodriguez took over and notched three kills in a run that saw the Aces tie it up at 24-24. The back-and-forth action continued before UE put the finishing touches on the set. With the score tied at 28-28, Taylor Jones notched a service ace before Cathy Schreiber and Rachel Tam had a block to give UE the win.

Riding the momentum they gained from the exciting opening set win, UE scored the first three points of the game and continued to lead at 6-4 as Rocio Fortuny had three early kills. The Salukis made their way back, taking their first edge of the frame at 8-7. They would hold the lead until UE went up 16-15 as Fortuny posted another kill. 

SIU took its turn, reeling off the next four to take a 19-16 lead before it reached four at 21-17. UE rallied as another pivotal McInnis ace tied the score up at 23-23. The run continued with Rodriguez finishing it off with her 12th kill of the evening as UE took a 2-0 match lead with a 25-23 win.

UE had a strong start to game three, taking a 7-2 lead. Later, Rachel Tam ace pushed the lead to six at 11-5. Evansville’s lead continued to grow as two more aces, both by Cassie Brooks, made it a 19-11 game. The Aces put the icing on the cake, running away to a 25-13 win to earn their first MVC match sweep in three years.

Evansville returns to the road next weekend for a swing through the state of Iowa. A match at UNI begins the weekend on Friday before the Aces head to Des Moines to take on Drake. Both matches begin at 7:00 p.m.
