The Department of International Languages and Cultures invites all faculty, staff, and students to attend a talk by Spanish faculty candidate Giannina Reyes Giardiello on Monday, February 9. at 4:30 p.m., in the Holy Cross Lounge on the third floor of Franz Hall. She will present “Of Other Spaces and Other Men: Mexican Masculinities and the Post-Revolutionary State.” Reyes Giardiello’s scholarship focuses on the relationship between national discourse and masculine representation in Mexico.

On February 2, 2015, Pope Francis preached on the World Day for Consecrated Life, saying “For a Religious, to progress means to place themselves in service, that is, to follow the same way of Jesus, ‘who did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped…’ Through this ‘law’ the consecrated can attain wisdom, which is not an abstract attitude but is the work and gift of the Holy Spirit…creative in joy, in wisdom.” The archives and museum are introducing a new series, “A Given Life,” to highlight University of Portland figures who served the Church and UP through their vocation. The first post in this series features the legendary Rev. Maurice Rigley, C.S.C., at https://wordpress.up.edu/museum/a-given-life-rigley/.
