October 20: Rothstein's First Assignment Exhibition:

New Image Gallery Presents: Rothstein's First Assignment Exhibition featuring Artist Richard Robinson.

Both the exhibition and the film Rothstein’s First Assignment confront the fate of a mountain society Rothstein documented when he worked as a photographer for Resettlement Administration. In October of 1935, Rothstein was assigned to the mountains of Virginia to photograph residents before they were moved from their homes by government officials to make way for Shenandoah National Park. Hired by Roy Stryker, his professor at Columbia University, Rothstein became the first photographer of the Department of Agriculture’s Resettlement Administration, an agency that would become the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Later joined by Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Ben Shahn, and others, Rothstein and his fellow FSA photographers produced the most important photographic document of the Great Depression.

Inspired by the re-photographic work of William Christenberry and Mark Klett, Robinson initially set out to complete a re-photographic project of Rothstein’s Virginia photographs. Following Christenberry’s approach in his native Hale County Alabama, where he re-documented much of Walker Evans’s FSA work appearing in Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, Robinson re-documents many of the sites featured in Rothstein’s 1935 project depicting what was then Madison County. Similarly influenced by Mark Klett’s work for the Re-photographic Survey Project (RSP), where Klett re-documents nineteenth century portrayals of the American West, Robinson also surveys change in an American landscape. Through the documentation of formerly inhabited land, his photographs record a contemporary viewpoint of the land seized from mountain residents for the creation of a National Park.

Unexpectedly, Robinson’s straightforward project led to written and photographic records that raise complex and difficult questions regarding the connection of documentary photography to the earlier practice of eugenic photography. In the midst of his project, Robinson discovered that many of the children Rothstein photographed in the mountains of Madison were forcibly sterilized after being relocated to The Colony, an infamous government institution in Lynchburg, Virginia. Contrary to published accounts that Rothstein’s subjects were moved to government resettlement camps, Robinson unearthed documentation confirming that many women and children were moved to The Colony, some just days after Rothstein photographed them.

Richard Knox Robinson is an award winning photographer and filmmaker based near Charlottesville, Virginia. His first film, “The Beekeepers”, premiered at Sundance in 2009 in the New Frontiers Shorts Program and went on to screen in Toronto and Telluride, winning Best Short Documentary at The Atlanta Film Festival. Robinson’s photography has been published and exhibited widely, appearing in numerous publications including Time, Smithsonian, National Geographic Traveler and The Washington Post Magazine as well as in the photography annuals, Communication Arts and American Photography.  For more information on the artisit, visit his website.

This exhibition runs from October 20, 2014 until December 5, 2014 in the New Image Gallery. The opening reception is in New Image on October 20, 2014 from 5-7pm.

October 22: Leadership for Supervisors Series:

Location: Wine Price

Series: 2 of 6

Series Description: The Leadership for Supervisors Series consists of six popular Training and Development Department leadership workshops. Each session focuses on a different leadership topic and will emphasize practical application for supervisors. The series is structured to allow networking and discussion of supervisory challenges as they pertain to each topic.

Workshop Description:

Curse of the Vanishing Employees
After investing in recruiting and training employees, you certainly don't want them to disappear. It is happening too often and productivity suffers. Participants will study a typical organization where people are disappearing and those that are left are on their way out. They will then explore why high turnover may not be just an upper-management problem and discover five ways individual supervisors, managers and team members can make a difference between employees staying...and vanishing.

In this workshop participants will:
  • Understand the importance of retaining employees
  • Learn the main reasons why employees stay with an organization or leave it
  • Understand how individual supervisors and managers can prevent job turnover, even though they may not control organizational policy.
  • Determine the goals and values that make work worthwhile for their team members
  • Find ways to make their working environment one that motivates employees and inspires commitment

October 24: Seminar: The Critical Role of Higher Education in Science Teacher Preparation and K-12 Outreach: How to Start Preparing our 2025 Freshmen Now:

Bioscience 1007

The Critical Role of Higher Education in Science Teacher Preparation and K-12 Outreach: How to Start Preparing our 2025 Freshmen Now 

Kerry Cresawn, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, James Madison University

The US currently ranks 20th out of the 34 OECD countries in science education as reported by the most recent PISA results which assess science competencies in >500,000 15 yr. olds.  Contributing factors include the high-stakes testing, teacher attrition rate of 50% within the first five years, and the very limited time for teaching K-5 science, which is at an all time low of 11% since 1998 while students spend 17% of their day on material management such as cleaning off their desk. Proposing a solution for improving the science education available to our future students is overwhelming and frustrating, however, we have both a responsibility and an opportunity to make a significant impact on this problem by both better preparing future teachers and sharing our knowledge, creativity, enthusiasm, and resources for science with the K-12 community.

In this seminar, I will present 4 different projects I have been involved in over the past year, which bridge scholarship, teacher preparation, and outreach. The first of these is an outreach program to prepare future middle school science teachers to design and implement literacy integrated and culturally relevant science experiences for ELLs. The second program is a traveling science program I designed with a focus on keeping the foundations of the S in STEM and on scaffolding from macroscopic to microscopic concepts and is available to 48 elementary schools in our region. The last two are collaborative efforts between the other 3 CSM science departments and the College of Education to recruit, retain, and better prepare high quality future high school science teachers.  Each of these projects includes a scholarship component to address questions including those related to the impact of these experiences on both the future teachers and K-12 students.

Location: Rose Library, Third Floor Flex Space

Register Here


The self-described Islamic State has rapidly become a central focus of a multifaceted debate. Is the ongoing military response proportional to the threat? What is the role of social media in transforming single acts of violent extremism into a global concern? Is the group calling itself Islamic State in fact part of Islam? What should we even call the group: IS? ISIL? ISIS? This flashpoint brings faculty experts in terrorism, world religion, and national security together to discuss IS, foreign policy, and asymmetric conflicts in the age of asymmetric religious conflicts.

Faciltators:
Frances Flannery, PhD, Associate Professor of Religion, Department of Religion and Philosophy; Director, Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Terrorism and Peace

October 26: JMU Symphony Orchestra:

This fall concert features the much beloved Symphony No. 2, op. 27, in E minor by Sergei Rachmaninoff. The Symphony was, and continues to be Rachmaninoff’s most successful symphonic opus. The evening opens with Jean Sibelius’ richly scored tone poem Finlandia, followed by Our Town by Aaron Copland. The music for Our Town is drawn from Copland’s film score of the same title, which in turn, is based on the play by American playwright Thornton Wilder. The play and film are both set in the fictitious town of “Grover’s Corner,” and tell the story of an average small town’s citizens in the early part of the 20th century.

The James Madison University Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Robert McCashin, is the premier symphonic ensemble for the JMU School of Music. The Symphony presents a number of concerts on- and off-campus each year, and has performed regularly as the invited college ensemble for the Virginia Music Educators Association. The ensemble presents a series of Youth Concerts for students from Harrisonburg/Rockingham and surrounding counties. The Symphony is the only college orchestra nationwide selected to participate in the Carnegie Hall (NY) “LinkUp” concerts for young students.

October 28: Artful Science: From STEM to STEAM:

Location: Rose Library 5211

Register Here


This roundtable will explore the shift from STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) to STEAM, wherein the arts are as intertwined with STEM disciplines as they have been since the origins of human history.  As noted by John Maeda in Scientific American, the arts and sciences are “two of the last places reserved for open-ended inquiry, for failure to be a welcome part of the process, for learning to occur by a continuous feedback loop between thinking and doing.”  What does it mean to add art and design to the STEM equation?  How might this movement create deep, cross-disciplinary learning experiences for our students and faculty?

She is Music: A Thousand Years of Vocal Music by Women Composers

Memorial Hall Auditorium

Women have been writing music for the voice for over 1000 years in Western culture!  This delightful evening, presented in the style of a 19th Century Salon, will feature some of the most beautiful vocal music ever written – and all of it by women.  You’ll hear the haunting songs of the women troubadours, the odes of the nightingale Divas, and the complex melody of Genius - over a dozen extraordinary women who also maintained successful careers as singers, composers, poets, pianists, and mystics.  Each of these women was an artistic leader, whose works embodied the musical, cultural, and poetic influences of her time.  They were often the catalysts behind the careers of other artists whose names would later eclipse theirs in the history books.  This program will present both songs and accompanying commentary about the peculiar circumstances that enabled each of these women to practice her craft.  These enchanting works will be introduced and accompanied by soprano Kay Krekow of The American Center for Puccini Studies.  

Light refreshment will be served.

Contact: Dr. Giuliana Fazzion, fazziogx@jmu.edu, 568-6128

October 30: "Don't Look at Me in that Tone of Voice!":

Location: Wine Price

Workshop Description: “I am happy to help with that project”, I say as I bite my lip and rub my neck. Which do you believe - my words or my actions? Research has shown time and time again that 50 to 70 percent of our communication comes from non-verbal cues - body language. We rely heavily on these subtle – and not so subtle – ways of communicating how we truly feel. We use clichés such as “it’s not what you said, it’s how you said it” and “actions speak louder than words” because, when receiving conflicting messages, we almost always choose what a person does over what a person says. In this class, we will discuss many of the ways in which we communicate non-verbally, so that we can use these signs and signals to communicate more effectively.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Learn the most common non-verbal cues and what they mean
  • Identify the non-verbal cues he/she uses most often
  • Develop a plan for ensuring that words are consistent with body language

Learning from experts from the Health Center, the Office for Substance Abuse, and Counseling Services, will explore the many existing programs that help support students in lead successful lives on campus, and how faculty can serve as a referral point for students seeking these resources.  Participants who join the H2H program will receive a sticker for their office door to publicize their participation in the program and their willingness to help students seeking resources.

After the H2H training session, faculty will be able to identify:

  • Signs of distress in students and steps they can take to assist students
  • Disruptive classroom behavior and develop an intervention plan to reduce its occurence
  • A dangerous student
  • Actions they can take to help mitigate risk
