April 9 5:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
White Stag Block, Main Event Room

The term podcasting has grown in popularity steadily the last couple of decades and is currently experiencing a significant boon in both the number of producers and listeners. As with many emerging and evolving industries, standards and guidelines remain elusive while experimentation is wonderfully abundant. From daily news segments to fictional long-form stories, the growing number of high-quality podcasts is vying for the attention of the listening public.

In this session, Designing for the Ear, we will present and discuss the current trends and needs to help us better understand this new ecosystem of podcasts and audio storytelling. We invite thoughtful podcast producers and audio storytellers to share their storytelling craft in using audio interviews, script writing for the ear, and sound design. 

Confirmed Speakers:
Kaitlin Prest of The Heart (Radiotopia) and The Shadows (CBC)
Peter Frick-Wright of Outside Online
Dmae Roberts of Stage and Studio (KBOO)
Leah Sottile of Bundyville

Moderated by Andrew DeVigal, Chair in Journalism Innovation and Civic Engagement at University of Oregon and Associate Director, Agora Journalism Center

Networking reception will immediately follow.

 

Please RSVP by April 2nd.

April 10 4:00 p.m.–5:30 a.m.
Knight Library, Browsing Room

Dana Frank is Professor of History Emerita  at the University of California, Santa Cruz. In this presentation Dana Frank will discuss her new book, The Long Honduran Night: Resistance, Terror, and the United States in the Aftermath of the Coup, which examines Honduras since the 2009 coup that deposed democratically-elected President Manuel Zelaya. In the book, she interweaves her personal experiences in post-coup Honduras and in the US Congress with a larger analysis of the coup regime and its ongoing repression, Honduran opposition movements, US policy in support of the regime, and Congressional challenges to that policy. Her book helps us understand the root causes of the immigrant caravans of Hondurans leaving for the US, and the destructive impact of US policy.

"Higher education is facing a crisis of trust. When members of your community feel heard, invested in, and served by your institution, they’ll trust you, volunteer, and donate. Without their trust, our institutions can't survive. The stakes couldn’t be higher: Democracy and the next generation’s economic mobility depend on higher education's ability to get this right.

At ListenUp EDU, we will ditch the typical conference agenda of prosaic presentations and sleepy panels to chart the path ahead for higher ed together. Join us to explore how adopting a culture of listening, service, and trust-building can accelerate student success outcomes, alumni engagement, marketing and communications, and advancement.

You will:


Learn listening and service strategies for creating lasting change at your institution
Help build a movement to solve higher ed's most daunting problems
Form lasting working relationships with the best of the best in higher ed

April 24 5:30 p.m.–9:00 p.m.
White Stag Block, Main Event Room

*By invitation only

On Wednesday, April 24, we will bring together organizations and individuals who contribute to community-driven solutions addressing Portland’s housing crisis. The goal of the gathering is to briefly present the big picture view of where we are and how we got here, support the do-ers who are creating positive change and to inspire future do-ers in our community.  We will showcase current projects, discuss and identify opportunities and collaboration, and create a working network of do-ers in the Portland community.

This gathering will highlight how Portland is better because of the work of individuals and community groups. If that’s you, we want to hear from you! There are two ways to participate:


As a Contributor - You have time, resources, and perhaps even an idea to contribute, but you’re not sure how you can help. This is a chance for you to hear what others are working on and lend that hand or whatever contribution makes sense for you. If this is you, then please register as a “Contributor” along with the sector of the community you’re coming from: city or government agency role, non-profit organization, and interested community member.
As a Do-er - A “do-er” is an individual, group or organization actively working on a community-driven project addressing Portland’s housing crisis and seeks additional help or resources in order to be successful. If this is you, please register as a “do-er” in the field below. Note: A select number of do-ers will have the opportunity to present their projects and be eligible for a small grants opportunity. Because we have limited seats for do-ers at this gathering, only currently active projects will be eligible to apply. More information about the application process will be emailed to you. Do-ers who were not selected will still be encouraged to attend the gathering.


Please send all accessibility questions and accommodation requests, including requests for translation and interpretation, to this email no later than April 6, 2019. Thank you for your consideration and registering early for this event. If you have any questions, please reach out to this email.

Food will be provided. Located in Portland’s historic Old Town Chinatown district, the White Stag Block, is accessible by public transportation and a SmartPark lot at NW Naito Parkway and Davis Street.

The event is sponsored by Portland CityCommissioner Chloe Eudaly’s Office; Office of Community & Civic Life; University of Oregon’s Agora Journalism Center; Central Northeast Neighbors (CNN), East Portland Neighborhood Office (EPNO), Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods (NECN), Southeast Uplift Neighborhood Coalition (SEUL) North Portland Neighborhood Services (NPNS), Neighbors West-Northwest (NWNW), Southwest Neighborhoods, Inc.

April 26 noon–1:30 p.m.
White Stag Block, 3R - Shirley Pape Forum

Sue will be talking about her new book: Networked News, Racial Divides: How Power and Privilege Shape Public Discourse in Progressive Communities.

A full professor with tenure, Sue Robinson joined the UW-Madison faculty at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication in January 2007 and now holds the Helen Firstbrook Franklin Professor of Journalism research chair. As a scholar, she explores how journalists and news organizations adopt new information communication technologies to report on public affairs in new forms and formats as well as how audiences and individuals can use the technologies for civic engagement. Central to her work is the consideration of information flow as it moves through specific media ecologies and networks at the local community level.

Her current multi-phased, multi-method book (Networked News, Racial Divides: How Power & Privilege Shape Progressive Communities) researches how digital platforms enable and constrain citizens – especially those in marginalized communities – who produce and share information in the public sphere about racial achievement disparities in the K-12 education system. Using Bourdieu’s field theory as its theoretical framework, the book is meant to be a guide for journalists, politicians, activists and others on how to navigate information networks to improve public deliberation.

Please RSVP by April 18.
