Jumping off from a day when Miller was 25 and scrambled up inside of the O of the Hollywood sign and imagined the performance space treehouse of his dreams, A Body in the O journeys through the hoops of the Department of Homeland Security, a queer boy’s truth telling, the human heart’s mysterious Os, and finally a wedding day as Miller imagines the full possibility of performance that changes the world inside these wooden Os! 

“For an entire generation of queer artists working in the experimental theater world—including me—Tim Miller led the way. His imagination, daring and vision continue to inspire us.”—Moisés Kaufman, author of The Laramie Project    

Tim Miller is an internationally acclaimed solo performer. Hailed for its [sic] humor and  passion, Miller’s solo theater works have been presented all over North America, Australia, and Europe at such prestigious venues as Yale Repertory Theatre, the Institute of Contemporary Art (London), the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), and the Brooklyn Academy of Music. He is the author of the books Shirts & Skin, Body Blows, and 1001 Beds, which won the 2007 literary prize for best drama-theater book from Lambda Literary Foundation. Miller has taught performance in the theater departments at UCLA and at Cal State L.A. He is a founder of two of the most influential performance spaces in the United States: Performance Space 122 on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica, CA. He can be reached at his website.

How We Know the U.S. Constitution Was Proslavery (4:30 p.m. @ Psychology 105)

Presented by Paul Finkelman, Robert E. and Susan T. Rydell Visiting Professor at Gustavus Adolphus College.

This talk explores the debate over whether the Constitution was a proslavery, “Covenant with Death, and an Agreement in Hell,” as the great abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison put it, or a document that was inherently anti-slavery, as some scholars, like James Oakes and more emphatically Sean Wilentz have argued.  The talk argues that for a variety of reasons, Garrison was theoretically and constitutionally correct, and then explains why some 19th century opponents of slavery, like Lincoln, Salmon P. Chase, and Frederick Douglass (after about 1852) argued that it was a pro-liberty document. In the end, they were wrong about the constitution as it was written in 1787 and understood by almost every lawyer, judge, and political leader before 1861.  It became “available” to opponents of slavery only after secession took 11 slave states out of the political and constitutional calculation, Lincoln announced the Emancipation Proclamation, and the United States Army, now augmented by some 200,000 Black soldiers, most of whom were held in bondage when the war began, were able to implement Lincoln’s new policy.

Redistricting, Representation, and Political Reform in Portland, Oregon (4:30 p.m. @ Eliot 314)

In November, 2022, Portland made history as the first large municipality in the United States to adopt proportional ranked choice voting and multimember districts in the modern era. Portland is now in the midst of the redistricting process—creating four districts, each of which will elect three council members.

Join us for a roundtable conversation about Portland election reforms and the redistricting process. We will be joined by two political science experts in elections, voting, and redistricting. See more information at events@reed.edu.

Dr. Melody Valdini is professor of political science at Portland State University and was recently selected as one of the members of the Portland Independent District Commission.

Dr. Todd Donovan is professor of political science at Western Washington University and is a nationally known expert on ranked choice voting. Dr. Donovan is also an elected county commissioner in Whatcom County, WA.

The conversation will be facilitated by Dr. Paul Gronke, professor of political science at Reed College and Director of the Elections & Voting Information Center.

We encourage students, staff, faculty, and other community members to join us for a lively discussion about the theory and practice of election reform. Open to the public.

Dr. Giancarlo Marcone is director of humanities, arts, and social sciences at the Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología in Lima, Peru. He received his doctorate in archaeology from the University of Pittsburgh and has published widely on Pachacámac and societies of the Peruvian central coast in the Middle Horizon and on the Inka Road system.
