Tuesday, September 17 - Friday, July 25 All Day - Oviatt Library, Tseng Gallery
http://library.csun.edu/blogs/goingson/in-protest/

Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.

We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century

"Creating Cesar Chavez:  The Fight Against the Bracero Program in Ventura County"

Professor Frank Barajas' first book, Curious Unions:  Mexican American Workers and Resistance in Oxnard, California in 1898-1961 (2012) explores the ways in which the Mexican community forged intriguing partnerships with other ethnic groups within Oxnard in the first half of the twentieth century and the resulting economic exchanges, cultural practices, and labor and community activism.  Profesor Barajas examines how the Oxnard ethnic Mexican population exercised its agency in alliance with other groups and organizations to meet their needs before large-scale protests and labor unions were engaged. 

Seating is limited.  Please RSVP to the Department of History at 818-677-3566 and to obtain parking information.

For more information on the lecture visit the Department of History webpage at http://www.csun.edu/social-behavioral-sciences/history.

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm - Great Hall
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/turtle-island-quartet-with-guest-nellie-mckay/

Rush pricing available now! $12 for students, $17 for faculty & staff.

Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Nellie McKay joins forces with the two-time Grammy award-winning Turtle Island Quartet to present a delightfully kaleidoscopic view of the music of Billie Holiday, Billy Strayhorn, and the Weimar cabaret of the 1920's. While the combination of voice and strings has long been a staple of the classical genre as well as of contemporary music, Nellie McKay's talents on piano, mallets, and ukulele and Turtle Island's famed innovative rhythmic techniques unleash an unprecedented range of possibilities. A healthy dose of original music, for which both Ms. McKay and the Turtle Island Quartet are renowned, rounds out this sweeping concert.

"...The ability to create the best jazz, rock, bluegrass and the rest in sonorities that are rich, transparent, balanced and blessedly lightly amplified." --The Washington Post

"...spicing up and stretching out cultural parameters of string quartet tradition ... This is a group with a sterling past, future and an evolving present." --Santa Barbara News Press

Revered as guardians of the mariachi legacy, Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan presents a festive repertoire of rhythms, dance, and vocals for an exciting evening of pageantry and musical virtuosity. Founded in 1897, the quintessential kings of Mexican folk music earned their reputation as el mejor mariachi del mundo (the best mariachi group in the world) by virtue of their commitment to tradition and emphasis on superior musicianship and singing ability. Breaking new ground, the legendary group added to its prolific collection a first-ever mariachi opera -- Cruzar La Cara de la Luna (To Cross the Face of the Moon), which debuted in November 2010 and was created by director Jose "Pepe" Martinez, Sr.

In 1950s Germany, a social-climbing cabaret singer and prostitute sets her calculated sights on an honest politician. Shot in eye-popping childlike colors, Fassbinder's homage to Josef von Sternberg's The Blue Angel stands as a dark satiric tribute to capitalism.

The Lar Lubovitch Dance Company celebrates its 45th anniversary this season with a presentation of the choreographer's poignant and stunning Transparent Things. Lubovitch's lively work is based on the Pablo Picasso painting Family of Saltimbanques, which depicts a world of street performers and entertainers. Pairing the dreamily beautiful Debussy String Quartet in G minor with masterfully crafted performance art, Transparent Things is a lovely offering to unrepentant romanticism, realized through the deeply humanistic genius of "one of the ten best choreographer's in the world," says the New York Times.

Veronika Voss (Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss), 1982 -- 105 mins.

RAINER WERNER FASSBINDER RETROSPECTIVE

Querelle1982 -- 108 mins.

Fassbinder's last film Querelle is a luridly experimental adaptation of Jean Genetâs novel about the adventures of a sailor turned smuggler and murderer. A labyrinthine work that reaches a monumental aesthetic peak and stands as one of the director's finest films.

What can be better than an Oak Ridge Boys Christmas concert? The iconic group's Christmas tour has become one of the most loved performances during the holiday season. As the Chicago Tribune puts it -- "Whether you are a big country music fan during the rest of the year, or prefer your country in the Taylor Swift pop style, this is a seasonal chestnut that is not to be missed."
