    Julie Proscia: “The #MeToo Movement – Transition from Outrage to Action”

    In 2017, the #MeToo movement erupted after the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations came to light.  These allegations had ramifications across industry, political, and cultural lines.  2018 proved a watershed time in awareness and activism.  The intersectionality between the workplace and the home are examined through the personal and professional lens of a female professional who served on the Illinois Senate Task Force on Sexual Misconduct in 2018.  2018 was a time when outrage transitioned to action in the political world and beyond -- together we will examine what 2019 will bring.

    March 27, 2 p.m., “Celestial Suite,” presented by EIU Faculty Brass Quintet, Booth Library Atrium.

    The Celestial Suite reflects upon and comments on the relationship between astronomy and sacred music. It is a piece in five movements, with each movement highlighting one of five astronomers/physicists, and each being represented by a member of the brass quintet:

    Copernicus – Trumpet (Dr. Jenny Brown, Assistant Professor of Trumpet)
    Galileo – French Horn (Dr. Jessica Pearce, Adjunct Professor of Horn)
    Newton – Tuba (Dr. Evan Kelsick, Instructor of Tuba and Euphonium)
    Hubble – Trombone (Dr. Will Porter, Instructor of Trombone)
    Hawking – Trumpet (Keven Lewis, Invited Guest Artist)

    Each movement relates, for the most part, to the sacred music of the individual’s time period in history. For the most part, this collection of individuals is more a look back at the history of space exploration. However, the final movement does leave us pondering the question of how and why we are here, which ends the piece in the present and looking toward the future.

    In between each movement, the performer who is about to be featured will introduce their movement by speaking about the astronomer/physicist represented, sacred music of that time, and how this is explored in the music.
