  • INTRODUCTION TO WESTERN ART: A CONCISE GUIDE
    Author(s): Barnes, Bernadine
    Abstract:

    How to use this e-book

    This e-book is your basic textbook for Art 103.  I would suggest downloading the files to your own computer so you can use them offline. However, there are many links to larger images, videos, etc. that you can only use when you are connected to the internet.  

    Bullet points will lead you to videos, articles, and other websites with further information or activities to reinforce your learning.  Generally these are optional activities unless I tell you otherwise in class.

    Bold type is used for terms you should know.

    Links (underlined and in blue/purple font) in the captions to illustrations or within the text will take you to larger images or the site for the museum where the piece is held.  Often the museum site will have more information.

  • Provost's Newsletter, May 2015
    Author(s): Provost's Office
  • The Less We Touch
    Author(s): Steve Duin
    Abstract:

    A print edition of this book is now available, here.
                                                              

    Steve Duin has written a column for The Oregonian in Portland since 1984.  He has authored six other books, including “Comics: Between the Panels,” a history of the medium, and “Oil and Water,” a graphic novel about the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.  He has two English degrees from Wake Forest University and lives with his wife, Nancy, in the real Lake Oswego. 

     

    Based on a true story, this is a work of fiction.  While the novel is inspired by real events, the names, characters, places, incidents and institutions either are the product of the author's imagination or are used fictitiously.

     


    ...In this back-alley light, the mirror did him no favors.  He was staring at the laps he’d run, the sacrifices he’d made, the sweet Js that rimmed out at the buzzer.  A coach had to rise above the bitter memories in the scoreboard lights.  You couldn’t sweat the miles you drove, the hours of sleep you gave up, the slights you ignored for the sake of the girls.  For the sake of the team.  Most of your best work never registered.  You couldn’t let that bother you.  You couldn’t expect parents, much less the pampered prima donnas they’d entrusted to your care, to realize you were irreplaceable....

     

  • Critical Media Studies: Student Essays on THE WIRE
    Author(s): Edited by Mary M. Dalton
    Abstract:

      After tumbling into the series from Season One head-first, I never looked back and have joined the ranks of those declaring it episode-for-episode and season-for-season the best television series ever because of its ability to embed compelling personal narratives inside incisive critiques of cultural institutions and systems.
