* Distinguished Historian Sally Roesch Wagner to Deliver Fiddick Lecture on November 5

The Department of History, Politics, and Social Change will welcome Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner for the 19th annual Thomas C. Fiddick Memorial Lecture on Friday, November 5. The lecture will begin at 7:00 p.m. in Eykamp Hall and is free and open to the public. For those who are unable to attend in person, the lecture will be live streamed at evansville.edu/live.

The 19th annual Fiddick Lecture is a centennial celebration (delayed by one year due to COVID-19) of the passing of the 19th Amendment, which gave American women the right to vote. Focusing on the women's rights movement over three centuries, Dr. Wagner’s lecture examines the movement's changing agenda, why it has happened, and how we can move forward today with United States democracy and the very existence of life on the planet hanging in the balance.

Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner was awarded one of the first doctorates in the country for work in women’s studies (UC Santa Cruz), and she is a founder of one the first college-level women’s studies programs in the United States (CSU Sacramento). Dr. Wagner has taught women’s studies courses for 50 years, and she currently teaches for Syracuse University’s Honors Program.

A major historian of the suffrage movement, Dr. Wagner has been active on the national scene. She appeared in and wrote the faculty guide for the Ken Burns documentary Not for Ourselves Alone. A prolific author, Dr. Wagner’s anthology The Women's Suffrage Movement, with a foreword by Gloria Steinem (Penguin Classics, 2019), unfolds a new intersectional look at the 19th century women’s rights movement. Sisters in Spirit: Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Influence on Early American Feminists (Native Voices, 2001) documents the surprisingly unrecognized authority of Native women who inspired the suffrage movement. It was followed by her young reader’s book, We Want Equal Rights: How Suffragists Were Influenced by Native American Women (Native Voices, 2020). Among her awards, Dr. Wagner was selected as a 2020 New York State Senate Woman of Distinction, one of “21 Leaders for the 21st Century” by Women’s E-News in 2015, and she received the Katherine Coffey Award for outstanding service to museology from the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums in 2012.

Thomas C. Fiddick, for whom the Fiddick Memorial Lecture is named, served as professor of history at UE from 1963 to 2002. In his 39 years at the University, he was a dedicated teacher, a productive scholar, and a tireless fighter in the cause of justice. His book, Russia's Retreat from Poland, 1920: From Permanent Revolution to Peaceful Coexistence, is still considered to be the best book on this topic. Tom’s untimely death on the day of his retirement in 2002 stunned the entire UE community, especially his many former students. It was from the former students’ efforts in particular, with the support of Dr. Fiddick’s friends and the University, that the annual Thomas C. Fiddick Memorial Lecture was established.

* Best-selling Author Imbolo Mbue To Speak on Campus - Monday, October 18

The Honors Program invites the campus community to join us for our common read speaking event, a presentation by author Imbolo Mbue, on Monday, October 18 at 6:00pm in Eykamp Hall. Ms. Mbue will be discussing her novel, How Beautiful We Were, which was the common read for Honors Program and Fellow Scholars freshmen this year.

All event attendees will be required to present proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test result administered within 48 hours of the event.

We hope you will join us for this exciting opportunity. If you’d like to read How Beautiful We Were in advance, copies are on reserve at the library.

Please contact Jayme Williams at jw504 with any questions.

About the novel and author:
How Beautiful We Were is a sweeping tale about the collision of a small African village and an American oil company. It is a masterful exploration of what happens when the reckless drive for profit, coupled with the ghost of colonialism, comes up against one community’s determination to hold on to its ancestral land and a young woman’s willingness to sacrifice everything for the sake of her people’s freedom.

Mbue herself grew up in Limbe, Cameroon, a seaside town with an oil refinery. She witnessed firsthand life under a dictatorship and was fascinated by the people who rose up against corporate greed and systems of injustice. The novel was inspired in part by this childhood fascination and draws heavily from historical and contemporary social and environmental justice movements as well as several current cases of environmental degradation caused by oil exploration.

Mbue’s first novel, Behold the Dreamers, won the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, was the Oprah Book Club selection for 2017, and became a national bestseller.

Athletics

* Volleyball earns third consecutive conference sweep

Playing on its home floor inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse for the third time in five days proved to be a good omen as the University of Evansville volleyball team made it a 3-for-3 homestand with a 3-0 shutout over Missouri State on Tuesday evening.

For just the second time since joining the Missouri Valley Conference in 1994, UE (13-4, 3-3 MVC) has earned three consecutive shutouts over conference opponents.  The other instance came in September of 2006 when Evansville defeated Drake, Illinois State and Indiana State by 3-0 scores.  With the win, the Purple Aces improved to 13-4 on the season, its best start since 2010 when the team won 16 of its first 19 matches.

“We knew since pre-conference about the level we can play,” Aces head coach Fernando Morales explained.  “When conference started, we were playing with too much pressure.  Coming back home gave us the confidence to get our rhythm back again.”

Reigning MVC Player of the Week Melanie Feliciano picked up right where she left off over the weekend, leading everyone with 19 kills.  She added 11 digs while hitting .586.  Giulia Cardona and Alondra Vazquez also finished in double figure kills.  Cardona recorded 17 while Vazquez finished the night with 14.  Another efficient effort saw Cardona hit .486 while Vazquez was excellent defensively, recording 11 digs.  Rachel Basinski and Kate Tsironis also made big-time contributions.  Basinski led the squad with 12 digs, marking her season high, while Tsironis picked up a career-high six block assists.  Taya Haffner continues to be among the top setters in the NCAA, picking up 39 assists in just three frames.

Missouri State (13-6, 4-3 MVC) was led by Azyah Green, who had 8 kills while Amelia Flynn led all players with 13 digs.

Set 1 – UE 25, Missouri State 21
Missouri State scored four of the opening six points of the night before Evansville got rolling to take a 7-6 lead.  With the Aces up by a tally of 11-10, Alondra Vazquez helped UE add to its lead, recording a pair of service aces in a 5-0 stretch that gave UE a 16-10 lead.  The Bears made it interesting down the stretch, cutting the deficit to 23-20 before Melanie Feliciano had the clinching kill in a 25-21 win.

Set 2 – UE 25, Missouri State 19
The Bears once again had some success early on, opening the set with a 9-6 advantage thanks to a Maddy Bushnell kill.  It was the serving for the Purple Aces that once again helped them jump in front.  This time it was an ace from Laura Ruiz that was part of a 7-1 run that gave UE a 13-10 lead.  Missouri State stayed within striking distance, trailing by just a pair (18-16) before Evansville pulled away late.  Three kills by both Giulia Cardona and Vazquez constituted the Aces final six points as they won by a final of 25-19 to grab a 2-0 lead.

Set 3 – UE 25, Missouri State 15
It was all Aces in the third set.  After falling behind by a 2-0 score, Evansville reeled off eight points in a row and never looked back.  Once again, it was thew serving of Vazquez that anchored the run.  Cardona added three more kills while Feliciano added a pair.  The run was capped off by Vazquez’ third ace of the match.  MSU got as close as three points, including a 13-10 score, but Evansville responded with a 4-0 run to go up 17-10.  From there, the Aces cruised to a 25-15 victory and a 3-0 match win.

Next up for UE is a weekend trek through Iowa.  The Aces take on UNI on Friday evening before traveling to Drake on Saturday.

* Harris scores as strong Aces effort comes up short at Belmont

Turning-in another solid performance, the University of Evansville men's soccer team saw a late goal spoil its evening in a 2-1 loss to Belmont on Tuesday in Nashville, Tenn.

"I'm encouraged with the way we played tonight against a very good Belmont team, but results matter," said Evansville head men's soccer coach Marshall Ray. "We didn't take advantage of some of the chances we created in the second half and we paid for that late in the game. We have to regroup and get ready travel to Loyola and find a way to get points in The Valley on the road."

Showcasing his ability to find the back of the net, senior Ryan Harris scored his fifth career goal for the Aces and his first since Sept. 18, 2019, tying the match at one in the 43rd minute. Between the posts, redshirt junior Jacob Madden made three saves on the evening in his eighth-straight start for Evansville.

Despite a lower total of shots than in the previous two matches, Evansville still recorded more shots on the night than its opponent for the third-straight match as the Aces tallied 12 shots to the Bruins' 11, including a 6-5 split in the first half. Belmont would be first on the scoreboard though as the Bruins found the back of the net in the 42nd minute as a ball played into the box was tapped home to give the Bruins a 1-0 lead. Just 49 seconds later, Evansville answered. Coming off a free kick from fifth-year senior Filip Johansson that sailed into the six yard box, Jakub Hall sent a shot from point blank range that deflected off the Bruins' keeper. The rebound rattled around before Harris pushed his way through the scrum and finished to knot the match at one heading to the half.

Evansville continued to generate quality chances in the second half. Again recording six shots in the 45 minute period, the Aces put four shots on frame. One of the best chances came in the 81st minute following a run from sophomore Pablo Guillen. The La Coruna, Spain native dribbled from just inside midfield to the top of the 18, playing the ball ahead to gain some space and whipped a ball on goal that the Belmont keeper stumbled to control before stopping the shot. As the clock ticked towards overtime in the 86th minute, Belmont scored its second of the night. A ball crossed into the box bounced its way past the outstretched appendages of a couple Bruins before finding the side netting untouched to give the Bruins the lead in what would end a 2-1 victory for the home side.

The Aces continue their three-game road trip on Saturday with a trek north to take on Loyola Chicago in the Windy City at 6 PM.

* Learfield Properties announces The Jimmy Johns Cup

Purple Aces Sports Properties at the University of Evansville and Saluki Sports Properties at Southern Illinois University have partnered together with Jimmy Johns to announce The Jimmy Johns Cup.

A year-long competition that will includes all sports shared by the Purple Aces and Salukis, The Jimmy Johns Cup will be a competition between head-to-head athletic matchups as well as best finishing scores in non-head-to-head contests between the programs. 

“The GM at SIU and myself wanted to collaborate on a project that would involve both athletic programs,” Purple Aces Sports Properties General Manager Brandon McClish said.  “When we approached the team at Jimmy Johns with this idea, they immediately got on board.”

Whenever the Aces and Salukis square off in a head-to-head contest, one point will be awarded to the winner of the game or series (in the case of baseball or softball).  This includes men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball and women’s soccer.  Sports such as golf, cross country, swimming/diving and track and field that are not head-to-head will award a point to the team who has the top finishing position or point total.

At the completion of the academic year, the program with the highest number of points for the season will receive The Jimmy Johns Cup to display on campus and in the city.

“We want to be a part of the Jimmy John’s Cup to build a new tradition for the people of both Evansville and Carbondale. We, as a company, have been active within these two communities for going on 25 years and we plan on being around for 25 more,” Jimmy Johns Local Director of Marketing Andrew West exclaimed.  “This is an amazing all-around opportunity for everyone involved.  It is something that is new for the area and can really build a rivalry between the two programs.  I cannot wait to see how big this gets and where it goes from here.”

Participation in The Jimmy Johns Cup heavily includes fans and supporters of both universities.  Each school will have a webpage dedicated to The Jimmy Johns Cup that will include information, season standings and coupons.  Coupons for use in the winning team’s city will be posted to a for either school following each point earned.  Links to The Jimmy Johns Cup information for each school are posted above.

* Women's Soccer back home to take on SIU Wednesday

Following a pair of road matches, the University of Evansville women's soccer team comes home for a matchup with Southern Illinois on Wednesday evening at 6 PM at Arad McCutchan Stadium in Evansville.

Last Match: Evansville 1, Illinois State 1 (2OT)
• Earning points on the road in conference play, the University of Evansville women's soccer team battled to a 1-1 draw with Illinois State on Saturday evening in Normal, Ill.
• Junior Emilie Hill recorded her second goal of the season, giving Evansville a lead in the 57th minute, while senior Emily Ormson set a career high with six shots on the evening. In goal, fifth-year senior Michaela Till moved even closer to the all-time Evansville record for career saves, now sitting just 16 from tying the record of 358, with seven saves against the Redbirds.
• For the fifth time this season, the Aces played a scoreless first half with its opponent, but Evansville and Illinois State generated plenty of opportunities. The two sides recorded 16 combined shots in the opening 45 minutes, but both sides put just one shot on goal in a defensive first half.
• The second half started much differently than the first as Illinois State recorded a shot on frame in the first 90 seconds, but Till made the save. Seven minutes into the half, Evansville opened the scoring and it was again a set piece that the Aces scored off of. Eyler took the corner kick and arced a ball to the far post that Hill attacked and headed back across the face of goal, finding the side of the net and a 1-0 lead for the Aces. Illinois State was quick to respond though, finding the equalizer following a free kick. The Redbirds had a free kick from near the midfield stripe which Ashley Santos sent into the box. Inside the box, Allison Baker gathered the ball at her feet and dribbled around a defender before tucking the ball into the back of the net. In the final half hour, Illinois State had the bulk of the chances, recording 10 shots to one for Evansville, but the Aces were strong defensively, taking the match to overtime.
• Illinois State continued their attack in the first overtime period, recording four shots, but the Aces again kept the Redbirds from scoring heading into the final 10 minutes. In the second overtime,  both teams created opportunities to steal the match late, combining for nine shots in the second overtime, including three for Ormson, as the two sides played to a 1-1 draw.

Previewing the Matchup
• Wednesday night's matchup marks just the second all-time meeting between the two sides with this meeting being the first contested at Arad McCutchan Stadium.
• In the spring meeting between the two sides, Evansville and SIU played to a 0-0 draw in Carbondale on March 9.
• SIU enters the midweek matchup with an 0-11-1 record, still searching for its first win of the season, but in just its second year of MVC membership and third year overall.
• The Aces currently sit in sixth in the MVC standings with three matches to play as Evansville is part of a crowded middle portion of the standings.
• Evansville is just two points out of third place and hosting an MVC Championship quarterfinals match.

Hill Gets Back on the Scoresheet
• A defensive presence for three seasons for Evansville, junior Emilie Hill has showcased her attacking ability this fall.
• In a draw at Illinois State on Saturday, the junior found the end of a corner kick from Alex Eyler, heading it back across the face of goal and in at the near post to earn Evansville a 1-0 lead in the second half of a 1-1 draw with the Redbirds.
• On the season, Hill is now second on the team with three goals and is the highest non-forward on the team in goals scored.

Program Record for Record
• With its 1-1 draw at Illinois State, Evansville set a new program record for draws in a season.
• Previously with a high of four draws in 1994, 2011, and 2013, Evansville has shown its ability to earn results this year, grabbing four of the draws on the road.

* Carson Parker posts Aces low round at Bubba Barnett

In the final day of the Bubba Barnett Intercollegiate, it was Carson Parking posting the low round for the University of Evansville to improve his spot in the final standings at RidgePointe Country Club.

Parker was the second-highest finisher for the Purple Aces, tying for 64th place with a 3-round tally of 234.  He improved in each round of the tournament, going from an 84 to a 77 before a 73 on Tuesday.  His score was tied for UE’s second spot with Michael Ikejiani. He also had his low round of the event in the final 18, carding a 76.

Leading the way for the Aces was Henry Kiel.  Another solid day saw him post a 74 to finish the tournament in a tie for the 44th spot.  His low round of the weekend was a 73 in Monday’s second round.

Isaac Rohleder and Dallas Koth rounded out the UE performers as each completed the contest with a 242.  Rohleder shot an 80 in Tuesday’s round while Koth posted an 86.  Evansville came home 16th in the final standings.  The Aces finished seven strokes in front of Eastern Illinois while their march for a top 15 came up short, finishing nine behind Central Arkansas.

Arkansas State added to its lead, defeating its nearest competition in the team standings by 21 strokes.  ASU recorded an 858 with Oral Roberts taking second with a final tally of 879.  Loyola’s total of 881 strokes was good for third place.

Jack Madden, who played as an individual for Arkansas State, was the medalist.  He fired off a 6-under 66 in the second round on Monday and followed that up with a 3-under 69 on Tuesday to score a 211.  He defeated Dustin Hasley from ORU by one stroke.

On November 8-9, the Aces will complete the fall season with a trip to Huntsville, Alabama.
