Artist's Talk: Michael Flomen
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
In conjunction with "Shadows of the Invisible" exhibition on display at the OU Art Gallery through November 23, participating artist, Michael Flomen, discusses his work. ~ Special events are free and open to the public ~

Michael Flomen began taking photographs in the late 1960s and has been showing his work on several continents since 1972. He has been a darkroom printer and collaborator for many artists and curatorial projects, including Jacques Henri Lartigue's travelling exhibition of the mid-1970s, which circulated within Canada and the United States. His first book of street photographs, titled Details, which was strongly influenced by Henri Cartier-Bresson's formal style, was published in 1980. A second publication of street photographs, Still Life Draped Stone, followed in 1985. In the early 1990s, Flomen switched to a large-format camera and began a series of snow photographs published in 2000 under the title Rising. For the last fifteen years, this self-taught artist has used camera-less techniques to collaborate with nature. Water, wind, the light emitted by fireflies, and other natural phenomena now inspire his picture making. His work is represented in several major public collections, including those of the George Eastman House, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Norton Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Canada, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

  • Pitch Workshop: November 25
  • Business Plan Pitch (round 2): December 3 (2-4:30 p.m.)

The competition is sponsored by the Oakland University School of Business and School of Education and Human Services, the OU INC and the OU Credit Union.

This business plan competition is part Oakland University’s new center for autism, where four prestigious organizations are collaborating to develop new small-businesses in Oakland County. This initiative will help address Michigan’s employment shortcomings for adults with autism. Consider this: 90 percent of adults with autism unemployed or underemployed and 500,000 adults with autism are expected to seek employment over the next decade.

BackgroundOU's Center for Autism is based on the fundamental principles of “Extraordinary Ventures,” a project in North Carolina that seeks to employ young men and women with autism and other developmental disabilities by creating self-sustaining small businesses that are designed around their skills. At a 2014 EV conference, autism specialists and business leaders agreed that small businesses and entrepreneurs can support their community by providing a range of jobs that match the skills of people with autism. Conference attendees identified some must-haves for creating sustainable small business solutions to the autism employment gap, including: taking a business approach to developing quality products and services, empowering parents, building partnerships in the community and identifying skills in people across the spectrum.

    American Conference for Irish Studies 2014 Midwestern Regional Meeting
    8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

    Ireland: The Great War, Conflict, and the Modern Age

    The Great War’s effects upon the “long” twentieth century might well have been to make conflict a central feature of modernity. Its effects upon Ireland were profound, and the war, and the culture of conflict that dominated the twentieth century played a major role in Ireland. The effects cut across the range of issues from politics to society, from economics to culture and the arts. With the Great War as a centerpiece, and with conflict in Ireland as a theme, to what extent do these play a role in the shaping of modernity in Ireland?

    Diversity Dialogue: Talking with Teens about their Sexual Health
    11:30 AM - 12:27 PM
    The Diversity Programming Team is pleased to present our second Diversity Dialogue of the year on Talking with Teens about their Sexual Health in coordination with the M2 Reproductive course, but open to all.

    According to a 2013 MMWR Report from the CDC, black high school students are more likely to have had intercourse (60%) compared to White (44%) and Hispanic students (49%). A higher share of Black high school students (14%) and Hispanic students (6%) initiated sex before age 13 compared to White students (3%). The need for physicians to be comfortable in talking with teens about this topic, especially early, is more important than ever.

    This dialogue will be more interactive with two short presentations by physicians on strategies for speaking with teens and their parents about sexual health followed by small group discussions of cases related to the topic.

    Lunch will be provided so please RSVP via the online registration form by Friday, November 7.

    Fit Bit Workshop: "Women on Strength"
    12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
    According to the National Center of Health Statistics, only “about 21 percent of women strength trains two or more times a week” (2009). Many women purposely avoid it in fear of ‘getting bulky’, but the truth is, incorporating strength training into your weekly workout is an important component of fat loss! In fact, according to Kenneth Walsh, director of the Boston University School of Medicine’s Whitaker Cardiovascular Institute, “muscle accounts for about a third of the average woman’s weight, so it has a profound effect on her metabolism”. Still need convincing? Then join us to learn more about this topic! FREE Time: 12:10p and 5:30p *Must be a Rec Center member to attend

    Note: 12:10p presentation will be located in the Conference Room at the Rec Center (limited to 15 attendees)
              5:30p presentation will be located in the Wellness Classroom at the Rec Center (limited to 25 attendees)

    Shakespeare and the Cut
    5:00 PM - 6:30 PM


    Shakespeare himself was a master cutter. Shakespeare scholars and theater practitioners casually refer to "cuts" with little or no awareness of the term's complicated history. 

    Dr. Bruce Smith, a distinguished scholar of Shakespeare and early modern studies and a dean’s professor of English and theater at USC Dornsife, will attempt to encourage and inform this awareness. Attention will be directed to various forms of cutting in Shakespeare's scripts: stabbing, piercing, slashes, engraving sarcastic remarks, tribulations, insulting someone by calling them "cut" fashioning of beards and styling of garments. 

    Discussion as to how we can use the early modern senses of cut-as-fashioning to understand better as to how cuts have operated in theatrical performance from the 17th through the 21st centuries and how they continue to operate in filmic cuts and digital interventions in contemporary stage performances. This event is open to the Oakland community and general public. Light refreshments will be served.

    The Liar
    8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    By David Ives, adapted from the comedy by Pierre Corneille

    Directed by Anthony Guest


    Hours after arriving in Paris, charismatic scoundrel Dorante is smitten by a pair of comely young ladies and confounded by a case of mistaken identity. Not to worry, Dorante is handsome, charming—and a pathological liar. He wins admirers wherever he goes…so long as he never has to tell the truth! Misunderstandings, secret agendas, and witty wordplay abound in this ingenious and irreverent update of a classic French romp.

    Communication & Journalism Lecture Series: Revolt of the City & bromances
    12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
    Revolt of the City
    Shea will explore the theoretical and practical challenges being raised to our understanding of social movements by struggles emerging in cities. Detroit is especially crucial to our understanding as it is ground zero in the neoliberal
    attack on urban centers of political power.

    Lecture by Shea Howell, professor

    A Guy’s Guy: The Bromances Hegemonic Man
    In her paper, “A guy’s guy: The Bromances Hegemonic Man,” Ashleigh argues that in contemporary media culture,
    masculine representations in film allow for interpretations that coherently express the change in gendered identities. This paper contributes to the theory of hegemonic masculinity by analyzing the ways in which masculinity was constructed in a romantic comedy narrative – bromance, specifically in “I Love You, Man.” Through an examination of the male homosocial relationship constructed in this narrative, she identifies the ways in which these characters adhere to the theory of hegemonic masculinity but also how they provide a critique of this concept. She will diagnose the ways this theory can be improved and adapted to contemporary society where gender and its relations have changed.

    Lecture by Ashleigh Curp, graduate student, communication
