Free Guthrie Tickets | Race Dynamics in USA

submitted by devega@augsburg.edu

The Center for Global Education & Experience, The Sabo Center for Democracy and Citizenship, and the Augsburg Theater Department are partnering with the Guthrie Theater to engage Augsburg students, faculty and staff in the production of “We Are Proud to Present” — part of the Level Nine Series, devoted to community dialogue about today’s most significant topics and questions.

Get your complementary tickets to this production in the Oyate Commons (Study Abroad/Away, ISSS and Multicultural Student Services suite) in Lower Level Christensen Center. Limit, 2 tickets per person. *See available dates/times below.

Find a seat. Any seat in the room. Watch carefully as an ensemble of six American actors — three black and three white – begins to stage a presentation about a genocide in 1900s colonial Africa. As they earnestly (and comically) stumble through their artistic process, attempting to remain true to the events in the past, they unwittingly unpack a personal and political firestorm of racial dynamics in America in the present. And even the best intentions can’t save them.

Critics have called We Are Proud to Present “90 minutes of original, enlightening, pulse-pounding theater” (Backstage), “devastatingly funny…dangerous and primal,” (The Washington Post), and “impressive, disturbing and thought-provoking” (San Francisco Chronicle).

http://www.guthrietheater.org/plays_events/plays/we_are_proud_present

*Tickets for the following dates/times: you must go to the Guthrie Box Office to exchange voucher for reserved ticket.

Thursday, February 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, February 25 at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, February 26 at 7:00 p.m.
Tuesday, February 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, March 4 at 1:00 p.m.

The theme of this production echos the focus of CGEE’s semester study abroad program in Southern Africa: Nation Building, Globalization, and Decolonizing the Mind.

TRIO McNair Scholars Program Recruiting for Fall 2017

submitted by crombie@augsburg.edu

Augsburg’s TRIO McNair Scholars Program is recruiting students for fall 2017 admission. Eligible applicants will be at junior status spring 2018 and available to conduct research summer 2018. We are particularly looking for students in STEM fields that are interested in pursuing doctoral degrees, but we will consider all majors except most professional fields (including business, pre-law, pre-health). STEM sophomores may also be eligible during this recruitment period; please contact us if you’d like more info on this.

The McNair Scholars Program works with students who are members of groups underrepresented in graduate education and who exhibit strong academic potential. The goal of the program is to prepare scholars for graduate study through academics, involvement in undergraduate research and other scholarly activities. McNair provides coursework, workshops and advising in preparation for doctoral study. The program also assists with securing admission to and financial assistance for enrollment in graduate programs. Students will acquire the research skills necessary to succeed in graduate school through a paid research internship ($4,000) with an Augsburg faculty member during the summer of 2018.

The McNair Scholars Program is a federal TRIO grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Therefore, to be eligible, students must be first-generation (neither parent graduated from a four-year college) AND low-income or may be persons from groups underrepresented in graduate education. The Department of Education defines these groups as African-American, American Indian, Alaskan Native, and Hispanic/Latino. Additionally. Applicants must be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

If you are interested in learning more about the McNair Scholars Program, please contact Lara Crombie, program assistant at crombie@augsburg.edu. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions about the program or if you’re unsure whether or not you qualify.

Activism, Social Justice, and Anti-Blackness in the Asian Community

submitted by thaok@augsburg.edu

Facebook Event Reminder: https://www.facebook.com/events/601273810072513/

February 24th, 6-8PM
Marshall Room, Christensen Center

Hmong Women Together has invited Rad Azns to present on Asian and Pacific Islander resistance and resilience, the relevance of social justice in our lives, and the need to challenge and resist anti-blackness in our communities in order to achieve justice and equity for all.

Community Speakers: Rad Azns
“We are a collective of Radical Asians in Minnesota. For us, radical means that we are left of liberal, and seek systemic social change rather than reform. Radical means addressing problems at their root, and holding an expansive view of liberation. We come together in our belief in the transformational potential of Asian American peoples, grounded in a legacy of radical Asian American organizing in Minnesota and nationally. We resist oppression and hierarchies that exist within our communities, and embrace our multiple and intersecting identities. We challenge Asian American complicity in the oppression of other communities, and make solidarity an integral aspect of our work.”

If you have any questions, please contact Hmong Women Together at hwt@augsburg.edu.

If you need accessibility related accommodation, please contact xiongp@augsburg.edu.

Red Power Energy Film Screening

submitted by marubbio@augsburg.edu

The Augsburg Native American Film Series presents Red Power Energy on March 8, a documentary film that combines engaging storytelling with in-depth journalism. Told solely from the Native perspective, with a nearly all-Native film crew and all-Native Advisory Council, the film features Western and Great Plains American Indian tribes from North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. First-person stories illustrate the complex realities of American Indian reservations grappling with how to balance their natural resources with their traditional beliefs. From the historic United Nations Climate Conference to the proliferation of non-Western countries industrializing their economies through fossil fuel production, Red Power Energy offers a rare glimpse into Indian Country while further advancing a deeper understanding of the energy debate. (Official Program Description from Red Power Energy Publicity)

The Seventh Fire–Film Screening

submitted by marubbio@augsburg.edu

The Augsburg Native American Film Series will present The Seventh Fire at the University of St. Thomas on March 16.

From executive producers Terrence Malick, Natalie Portman and Chris Eyre comes a fascinating new documentary by Jack Pettibone Riccobono, The Seventh Fire.

When Rob Brown, a Native American gang leader on a remote Minnesota reservation, is sentenced to prison for a fifth time, he must confront his role in bringing violent drug culture into his beloved Ojibwe community. As Rob reckons with his past, his seventeen-year-old protégé, Kevin, dreams of the future: becoming the most powerful and feared Native gangster on the reservation.
Together the lives of Rob and Kevin present a devastating counter-myth to textbook notions of the American dream, and they force us to confront the modern-day ramifications of what are still the most overlooked aspects of American history.

Location and Time
The University of St. Thomas
John Roach Center auditorium (JRC 126), which is located on the corner of Summit and Cleveland Avenues.
Building 2 on St. Thomas Campus Map
