"Your Past is Never my Past: Public Preception of Heritage"
Lecture by Professor Ezra Zubrow
Room 204 Condon
This talk presents the results of a year long study of the public perception of heritage on all five continents. Different countries and different cultures use different mixes of religion, education, sports, tourism, economy, natural resources, ethnicity, immigration, preservation, and history to define heritage. This paper examines well over 50,000 documents in more than 10 languages to demonstrate the differences.
Ezra Zubrow is an Anthropologist and Archaeologist who holds professorial positions at the University at Buffalo (USA), and the University at Toronto (Canada) and fellowships at the University of Cambridge (UK) as well as being one of the Senior Research Scientists for the National Center of Geographic Information Analysis. His research has been on a variety of subjects including prehistoric and ethnohistorical landscapes, demography,GIS and settlement analysis. He has done field work in North America, Europe, and Asia and most recently in the circumpolar area. In addition he has been working on the geography of social policy for heritage and disability. Two of his most recent books are entitled the Atlas of Literacy and Disability and the Landscape of Literacy and Disability. He is also active in the United University Professions, the largest higher education union in the United States.

Pinang & Ayu: A Love Story, an Indonesian shadow-puppet play
Pinang & Ayu: A Love Story, is an original wayang kulit (Indonesian shadow-puppet theater) performance by Eugene’s Gamelan Sari Pandhawa. Wayang Kulit is a traditional and beloved art form in Indonesia, and still attracts large audiences today. An Indonesian orchestra, called a gamelan, provides musical accompaniment for the show. Adapted from a Javanese folktale, this production adds a new twist: a lesbian storyline. Themes of sexuality, feminism, and socio-political oppression are explored through a humorous plot. Summer Pennell is the dalang (puppeteer) and script-writer, with musical arrangement by Qehn Jennings, Musical Director of Gamelan Sari Pandhawa. The music
includes traditional Javanese pieces, American tunes, and original compositions by Qehn. The performance is Thursday May 7th at 7:30 pm in Agate Hall on the UO campus. It is

"Communes Live! The quiet presence of intentional communities in America (and especially in Oregon)"
For more than three centuries a few idealistic Americans have rejected the ideal of rugged individualism in favor of cooperation and have come together in intentional communities. Although they typically receive little publicity, thousands of those communities are alive and well today. This presentation will be an illustrated survey of contemporary intentional communities, including some of the many active today in Oregon. Special attention will be given to ecovillages, artists' communes, countercultural groups, and lesbian communities.
