The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh American Democracy Project (ADP) will host UW-Madison’s David Canon Feb. 22.

Canon, a political science professor at UW-Madison, will deliver a lecture titled: “Voter ID, Early Voting and Voting Rights:  Will Changes in Voting Laws Affect the 2016 Elections?” The event will be held at 4 p.m. in the Reeve Memorial Union Ballroom, room 227.

Canon has previously served as an expert witness before the State Assembly and Senate Elections Committees and been a guest on Wisconsin Public Radio.

At the lecture, students will have the opportunity to learn about voting rights and how change in the voting law will hinder or assist them to vote in the upcoming elections.

“The talk is valuable for both students and the greater Oshkosh community given that Wisconsin voters will be going to the polls for primary and general elections at the local, state and national levels this year,” said James Krueger, associate professor of political science at UW Oshkosh.

This is the UWO ADP’s third annual Public Policy lecture. It is part of the spring series of engagement and education events, which also includes a Campus Roundtable Conversation on civility, ethics and politics on March 2.

The mission of ADP is to encourage civic engagement and awareness among college students. On the UW Oshkosh campus, ADP runs voter registration drives, organizes candidate forums, sponsors relevant speakers, encourages volunteerism, and offers forms of engagement and service learning. ADP is a multi-campus initiative focused on higher education’s role in preparing the next generation to be informed, engaged citizens.

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh kicks off its spring semester theatre season Feb. 18.

Clybourne Park, written by Bruce Norris and directed by Jane Purse-Wiedenhoeft, runs 7:30 p.m. Feb. 18 through Feb. 20 and 2 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Fredric March Theatre.

Audience-Page-BannerA synopsis of Clybourne Park: Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, Bruce Norris’ satiric comedy deals with race and class in response to Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun. The play begins in 1959 as a white family is selling their white neighborhood home in Chicago to an African American family. The second act of the play takes us to the same house in 2009 as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed. Jokes fly and hidden agendas unfold as two generations tiptoe through social politics, pitting race relations against real estate. Contains mature language.

Ticket prices are $14 for general, $11 for senior citizen or alumni and $5 for UWO students with ID; tickets may be purchased at the box office, which will be open the week of the productions Monday-Friday, noon-4 p.m. and evenings of performances 6 until 7:30 p.m. On Sundays the box office will open one hour before show time.

Other UW Oshkosh theatre productions and events this spring include:

  • Winter Fringe — March 10–12
  • The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee — April 28–May 1

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, book and lyrics by Rachel Sheinkin, music and lyrics by William Finn and directed by Bryan Vandevender, runs 7:30 p.m. April 28 through April 30 and 2 p.m. May 1 at the Fredric March Theatre.

A synopsis of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee: Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by adults who just barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious musical tale of overachievers’ angst that chronicles the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship title of a lifetime. This unlikely musical about the unlikeliest of heroes is a quirky, but charming piece that celebrates a group of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time. Contains mature language.
