Post-Sabbatical Presentation: Towards Developing a Slovenian Nationalism Scale

Presenter: Dr. Joseph Erickson, Professor, Education Department
Location: Lindell 301

Description: Europe has faced increased migration in recent decades due to wars (Syria,
Ukraine), climate change, and other reasons, as well as terrorist
attacks (e.g. Paris 2015), which have had a profound impact on attitudes
towards migrants, especially those coming from Muslim countries.

Research has shown that different aspects of national identity are associated
with attitudes and behaviours towards migrants and refugees. This
project focused on developing a questionnaire that would measure
different aspects of national identity and attitudes towards migrants in
the Slovene language. A follow up investigation is planned that will
translate the instrument into English and attempt to replicate the study
with an American sample.

Education Department professor Joseph Erickson will report on this project and
also share insights regarding the Fulbright Scholar application process
and potential collaborations available in Slovenia for Augsburg
University faculty through our partnership arrangement with the
University of Ljubljana.

Help Out Unsheltered Relatives at Camp Nenookaasi in East Phillips

submitted by

Camp Nenookaasi – located at East 24th Street and 13th Avenue South, Minneapolis – is a community based healing camp rooted in native practices & inclusive of all unsheltered relatives.

Some ways to help:
Call your council person and ask the city to provide porta potties and daily trash pick-up.
Daily trash pick-up: Given the camp’s size, trash pick-up needs to happen daily at a minimum. Currently, dedicated volunteers are hauling away 90% of the trash.

Volunteer: Join a morning kitchen shift or security shift. If you are new, volunteers will greet you at the door and work with you to train you in. We also need volunteers in the afternoons, to help do whatever is needed on a given day. And, we could even use volunteers today to help organize the kitchen storage area!

Follow this link to sign up for a shift:

Contribute food and supplies: Keeping 150 people fed, protected from the elements, and safe requires constant supply runs. It would be exceptionally helpful to have more people dropping off food and supplies on a regular basis, such as peanut butter, jelly, bread, sugar, disposable hot cups (no lids needed), disposable plates, bowls, and paper napkins. If you or your faith community or group of friends can commit to a daily delivery of these goods, even better.

Contribute money: You can also contribute money via Venmo (@Nenookaasi-Camp) or cash app ($Nenookaasi) accounts.
Ready to help? Please email or text Delaney at or 612-598-9508. Delaney will either get back to you or connect you with someone else who will.

Also follow on Instagram (, Twitter (, and Facebook ( for ongoing updates, needs, and calls to action.

If you agree to this study, I will ask you to complete a survey via Qualtrics. This survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. After completing all the survey questions, you will be invited, if you wish, to provide contact information to enter in the raffle to win one of three $50 gift card prizes, and/or emailed the results at the end of the study’s conclusion.

You Still Have Time to See “The Clockwork Professor”

submitted by

Augsburg Theater Department presents:
The Clockwork Professor
by Maggie Lee
Directed by Beliza Torres Narváez

Thursday, Nov 9- Saturday, Nov 11 at 7 pm.
Sun Nov 12 at 3 pm.

Tjornhom-Nelson Theater, Foss Center

The show runs for approximately 2 hours with an intermission.

Professor Shae Pemberton is a humble, secretive inventor who leads a quiet life focused on science. However, as her loyal assistant Matilda reminds her, fixing broken toys, clocks, and household gadgets is what she must do to pay the bills. When her friend Lawrence visits her with a business proposal from two shady fellows, buried secrets from her past resurface. As political unrest sweeps over the great city of New Providence, unexpected (and weird!) events start to unravel and threaten to destroy everything Pemberton holds dear, perhaps even the Crown itself! The Clockwork Professor is an action-packed adventure of fantastical science fiction with a steampunk twist.

Content Disclosure: The Clockwork Professor is a comedy intended for young adult and adult audiences. This play includes the use of some strong language and contains suggested nudity. There are also simulated fights, physical restraint, and a bit of romantic display of affection. Ah! And there will be some occasional theatrical smoke, too!
