Heels for Words

Heels for Words

Event Date: 
Saturday, April 14, 2018 - 8:30am to 10:30am
Location: 
OSU-Tulsa Parking Lot A
Event Details: 

"The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter--it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning." ~Mark Twain

Heels for Words began as a class project led by the OSU-Tulsa Communication Sciences and Disorders graduate class of 2013. Now in its seventh year, the primary goal of the Heels for Words project is to raise awareness of aphasia.

Aphasia is an impairment of language that limits a person’s ability to understand, speak, read and write. It occurs as a result of brain injury, such as stroke, head trauma, brain tumors, or infections. While aphasia can steal words, it does not affect intelligence or competence.

This year’s fundraiser will support Cowboy Aphasia Camp at OSU-Tulsa, which offers a treatment experience for people with aphasia, and an educational experience for clinicians in training. We hope to build a bridge between those with aphasia and the community in which they live. We believe that this can lead to more meaningful lives for both those challenged by aphasia and members of the community. By participating in Heels for Words, you are taking steps to raise awareness of aphasia!

Participants may choose between two trails: ½ mile, and 1.5 miles. High heeled shoes are encouraged, but not mandatory, for both women and men. Participants opting to complete the 1.5 mile trail in high heels will be eligible for a prize drawing following the walk. Snacks and water will be provided. Canine walkers are welcome but must be kept on a leash at all times.

An Evening with Kevin Young (Poetry Editor, The New Yorker)

An Evening with Kevin Young (Poetry Editor, The New Yorker)

Event Date: 
Friday, April 20, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Event Details: 

AN EVENING WITH KEVIN YOUNG (POETRY EDITOR, THE NEW YORKER)

 

About Kevin Young: Kevin Young was born in Lincoln, Nebraska. He studied under Seamus Heaney and Lucie Brock-Broido at Harvard University and, while a student there, became a member of the Dark Room Collective, a community of African American writers. He was awarded a Stegner Fellowship from Stanford University and later earned an MFA from Brown University. He is the author of many books of poetry, including the recent collections Blue Laws: Selected & Uncollected Poems 1995-2015 and Book of Hours (2014). Three of Kevin Young’s books form what he calls “an American trilogy”: To Repel Ghosts (2001), which explores the paintings of Jean-Michel Basquiat; Jelly Roll (2003), a collection of blues poems; and Black Maria (2005), a film noir. His first book of poetry, Most Way Home (1995), was selected for the National Poetry Series by Lucille Clifton, who describes the collection as re-creating “an inner history which is compelling and authentic and American.” Reviewing Young’s work in 2007, critic Amy Guth largely agrees with Clifton, and adds, “Perhaps the most noticeable characteristic of Young’s work … is the musical quality so fundamentally ingrained and supplied to each piece.”

Young’s other collections of poetry include For the Confederate Dead (2007), which won the Quill Award in Poetry and the Paterson Award for Sustained Literary Excellence; Dear Darkness (2008); Ardency: A Chronicle of the Amistad Rebels (2011), which won the Before Columbus Foundation American Book Award; and Book of Hours (2014), winner of the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize. His nonfiction collection of essays, cultural criticism, and “lyrical chorus,” The Grey Album: On the Blackness of Blackness (2012) won the Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. It was also shortlisted for the PEN Open Award and was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. Young is also the editor of the anthologies Jazz Poems (2006), John Berryman: Selected Poems (2004), Blues Poems (2003), and Giant Steps: The New Generation of African American Writers (2000).

Denim Day

Denim Day

Event Date: 
Wednesday, April 25, 2018 (All day)
Event Details: 

OSU-Tulsa invites faculty, staff, and students to participate in Denim Day.

For the past 19 years, Peace Over Violence has run its Denim Day campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape prevention education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault.
