Travel Talk: Germany and Austria @ Elizabeth Taber Library
Mar 10 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

A Journey Through German-Speaking Europe

Come join us for a tour of three undiscovered gems of Germany and Austria: Münster and Marburg in Germany, and Ladis, Austria.  Christine Watt, a native German, grew up in the Münsterland, an area of Water Castles and stately farmsteads in the Northwest of Germany. Her husband, Stephen, has traveled extensively in Germany, including a year-abroad at the University of Marburg in central Germany.  Marburg, has played host to many famous German visitors, including Martin Luther and the Brother’s Grimm, and its narrow streets, lined with half-timber houses, offer a glimpse into what Germany may have looked like several hundred years ago.  Over the past ten years, Tine and Stephen have regularly visited the Oberinntal in the Alps of Austria.  This is an area of not only breath-taking scenery, but also centuries-old traditions that still play a dominant role in the daily lives of local residents.  We invite you to marvel at their natural beauty of these three areas of Germany and Austria, and learn more about their culture and history.

Arts of the Pacific Presentation @ Elizabeth Taber Library
Mar 19 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Alisa Vavataga (1)After another New England winter its time to start thinking about warmer weather, join us for a presentation and conversation about art in the Pacific Islands. Katherine Higgins will discuss a range of customary and contemporary art by indigenous artists in the Pacific Islands. The beauty and diversity of the Pacific Islands has inspired artworks that embody and reflect the unique cultures, histories, and environments across the Islands. Katherine will provide a brief introduction to the extraordinary diversity across the region which includes 25,000 islands and 1/4 of the world’s languages and then we’ll do some island-hopping to discover artistic practices such as recording genealogy through tattoo and fiber arts, production of stone and feather currency, and contemporary paintings and performance that confront colonization and nuclear testing or celebrate enduring cultural traditions.

The second-half of the presentation will be for questions from the audience—whether about particular islands or artistic practices. We will also have the opportunity to discuss how our modern, globalized world has transformed Islander’s perceptions of some of these art works.

Katherine Higgins is an art historian, educator, curator, and occasional artist, who specializes in contemporary indigenous arts. She earned a PhD in art history from the University of Auckland and graduated with a Masters in Pacific Islands studies and a graduate certificate in museum studies from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.  Katherine’s research focuses on contemporary art and artistic and cultural exchange. She has worked with artists and arts organizations in Oceania, primarily in Hawai‘i, Fiji, Aotearoa/New Zealand, Sāmoa, and the Cook Islands. She has also worked in higher education, community outreach, grant writing, museum education, museum and exhibition design, and for grassroots and international art organizations in Boston, London, Honolulu, Suva, Christchurch, Auckland, and Poutasi, Sāmoa.

Katherine currently serves as Arts Editor for the academic journal The Contemporary Pacific published by University of Hawaiʻi Press and as a trustee for TransCultural Exchange.
