Join us for the next lecture in our ongoing Scholar for Life series, in partnership with Badger Talks! 

This talk addresses the relationship between the First Amendment, the social regulation of speech and “cancel culture.” In the process, it addresses the impact of social media technologies on our understandings of and assumptions about free speech as well as why community control of speech norms has devolved into exercises of domination.

Franciska Coleman is an Assistant Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Wisconsin Law School and the Associate Director of the East Asian Legal Studies Center. She is an interdisciplinary scholar, whose work draws upon political theory, critical discourse analysis, and constitutional law.

Professor Coleman’s current research focuses on the constitutional implications of the United States’ eventual demographic shift to a minority-majority society. Her current work also explores “cancel culture” as a byproduct of the American constitutional choice to rely on the social rather than legal regulation of speech, with particular attention to the “cancelling” of speakers who are members of racial or ethnic minorities.

Prior to joining the faculty of UW Law School, Professor Coleman was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Washington University in St. Louis and also held a Visiting Scholar appointment at Harvard Law School.

Stoughton artist, Nancy Odalen, will talk about the art of rosemaling and how it found its way across Norway, then to Wisconsin.

From Nancy:

"I am drawn to Rosemaling because it is a part of my heritage. I am the great granddaughter of a sea captain and the granddaughter of an adventurous sailor who left Stavanger Norway and sailed around the world one and a half times before jumping ship in Australia and eventually ending up in the Midwest. I am the granddaughter of a woman who traveled to the Midwestern United States from Stavanger Norway, by herself, at the age of 23. The palette that I use in my painting echo’s the colors found in the shimmering clear coastal light of the west coast of Norway. The red from the brick of the church where my grandparents were baptized and confirmed, the ochre and the bright yellow of the sun as it reflects off the waters surrounding this city. The green in my painting is from the farmland of Rogaland, especially the Fosse farm where the Vikings lived and were buried. The freedom and movement found in my rosemaling mirrors the traditions of my ancestors and the adventure that both my grandparents embarked upon as they left Norway to find a new life.

My journey in the study of Rosemaling began with my first Vesterheim Rosemaling class in 2001. I have taken and continue to take classes from instructors that have given generously of their time and talents to instruct me in various styles found in Rosemaling. Most notably, I worked with Andrea Herkert, Vesterheim Gold Medalist (VGM), in two apprenticeships through the Wisconsin Art Board (WAB) Folk Art Apprenticeship, the first in 2013-2014 and the second in 2018-2019. These apprenticeships offered me the opportunity to focus on the Ryfylke, Agder, Hallingdal and Telemark styles of Rosemaling. The knowledge that I have gained in my study of Rosemaling has opened the opportunity for me to receive funding through the WAB Folk Art Apprenticeship program to share my knowledge, as the Master Instructor, with two apprentices. The first in 2020-2021 and the second 2022-2023. In 2022 I became a Vesterheim Artist in Residence and will be doing a study of the Vesterheim collection additionally in 2022 I was awarded a Vesterheim Gold Medal, the highest level of achievement for a Rosemaler.

It is my desire to continue developing my knowledge and skills of Rosemaling. I especially enjoy styles from the Western Coast of Norway. Styles that are rather eclectic, like Ryfylke, that were developed and refined towards the middle of the ‘golden age’ (1750-1850) of Rosemaling.  Romsdal is another of those styles that started finding its voice in the early 1800. These styles incorporated motifs and stylistic forms from other districts that helped to create these local styles. The richness of the colors, in these rather eclectic styles, and the use of lights and darks  to direct the eye to the elements that the artist wants you to see, allows the viewer to discover true beauty.

My journey continues as I learn from the old and create pieces that come from my soul. It is my true joy to share my passion, enthusiasm, and knowledge of Rosemaling with my colleagues and those whom I teach."

Fungi are often overlooked, misunderstood, and definitely underappreciated.  Yet these diverse and highly evolved organisms are critical to function of forest ecosystems.  Their varied lifestyles are suited to roles as symbiotic mutualists, nature’s recyclers, or disease-causing tree pathogens.  Fungi profoundly influence the initiation, development, composition, stability, and change of forests. 

Glen Stanosz is a Wisconsin native and the Emeritus Professor of Tree and Forest Health at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. His research has focused on the biology and management of tree diseases caused by fungi. Professor Stanosz is an award-winning teacher whose students include future foresters, horticulturists, and arborists, and professionals in the green industry.
