    Extra! Extra! Learn all about how an Oregon family shaped Oregon's news landscape.

    The presentation will describe how the modern-day EO Media Group evolved from a weekly newspaper established in Pendleton in 1875 to a multi-city combination of daily and weekly publications throughout Oregon. It covers how powerful and colorful editors helped shape important events not only in communities where the papers operated, but in the state at large. How the company newspapers handled important episodes, such as the rise of the KKK, impact of the Great Depression, community response to wars, environmental issues, and rise of right-wing extremism will be touched on. Finally, the talk will tell how, over time, the EO Media Group stayed in front of the technological changes driving the publication of newspapers. A strong commitment to the values of community journalism by the family behind the company lie at the heart of the company’s success.

    William Willingham is a fourth-generation Oregonian. He was born and raised in Pendleton and now lives in Portland, working as a Consulting Historian. He received his BA from Willamette University and a Ph.D. from Northwestern University. He has written several books on Oregon history, including "Grit and Ink: An Oregon Family’s Adventures in Newspapering, 1908-2018 (2019);" "Starting Over: Community Building on the Eastern Oregon Frontier (2005);" "Collegiate Architecture in the West: Willamette University, 1842-2012 (2019);" "Classic Houses of Portland, Oregon, 1850-1950 (1999)."

    Explore Japanese culture through its greatest pop culture export- manga.

    Dr. Jon Holt discusses how much we can understand about Japanese culture with the country's greatest pop culture export, its comic books (manga). Like the United States, Japan has a long history of comic-book making, one that is in fact far more successful than what's seen in American markets. Although manga stories and series can be immensely satisfying entertainment, they also create pathways to know and learn about Japanese culture. When do Japanese people bow? How deeply do they bow? What do Japanese people love to eat? Why do they love food so much? How do Japanese people communicate with each other, with strangers, with completely different strangers? How do they use body language? How do they use sometimes the most minimal communication cues to convey deep concerns? What about tattoos? Bathing habits? Sleeping habits?

    Manga, as a visual-textual medium, can help explain--by demonstration!--many of these questions and much larger ones, and, manga does it all so beautifully. Join Professor Holt as he explains Japanese culture with the hit LGBTQ manga "My Brother's Husband" (Ototo no otto [Vol. 1]), Tezuka Osamu, Mizuki Shigeru, and more!Dr. Jon Holt received his Ph.D. in Japanese Literature from the University of Washington. His research interests include modern Japanese poetry and children’s literature. He wrote his dissertation on the works of Miyazawa Kenji, arguably one of the most important figures in modern Japanese literature. At PSU, Dr. Holt teaches Japanese literature and film as well as upper-division Japanese language courses. His secondary research interests include manga and Japanese Buddhism.
