Reminder: David Oshinsky Lectures March 7


There are two opportunities to hear David Oshinsky on March 7

First lecture:
Noon-1:30pm
Oak Room, Student Center, Taylorsville Redwood Campus
To discuss his book "A Conspiracy So Immense: The World of Joe McCarthy" and how it relates to the Grand Theatre production of "The Crucible."

Second lecture:
6 pm
Grand Theatre
A question and answer session moderated by two distinguished SLCC Faculty members. The discussion will focus on Dr. Oshinsky's knowledge of the McCarthy era and how it influenced Arthur Miller and other artists of the time.

Biography:
David Oshinsky holds the Jack S. Blanton Chair in History at The University of Texas at Austin and is a Distinguished Scholar in Residence at New York University. He graduated from Cornell in 1965 and obtained his PhD from Brandeis University in 1971. His books include “A Conspiracy So Immense: The World of Joe McCarthy,” which won the Hardeman Prize for the best book about the U.S. Congress and was a New York Times “notable book of the year;” “Worse Than Slavery,” which won the Robert Kennedy Book Award for its “distinguished contribution to human rights” and was also a New York Times “notable book of the year;” and “Polio: An American Story,” which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for History in 2006. His reviews and essays appear regularly in the New York Times and other national publications. In 2009, PBS aired the documentary, “The Polio Crusade,” based on “Polio: An American Story.”

Honors and Awards:
Pulitzer Prize in History, 2006, for “Polio: An American Story.”
Hoover Presidential Book Award, 2006, for “Polio An American Story.”
Academy of Distinguished Teachers, University of Texas, 2008.
Distinguished Lecturer, Organization of American Historians, 2007.
Dean’s Medal, Distinguished Contribution to Public Health, Bloomberg (Johns
Hopkins) School of Public Health, 2009.
Main Commencement Speaker, Bloomberg School of Public Health, 2009.
Main Commencement Speaker, University of Texas, 2007.

Topic of Lecture:
Acclaimed historian David Oshinsky chronicled the life of Senator Joe McCarthy in “A Conspiracy So Immense”. The book has been called both "nuanced" and "masterful” as it reveals the internal and external forces that launched McCarthy on this political career, carried him to national prominence, and finally triggered his decline and fall. Mr. Oshinsky will bring this unique insight to the college to speak about the era of McCarthyism and how it affected such literary works as “The Crucible”.

2012 Commencement Speaker: Abby Wambach





Salt Lake Community College announces Abby Wambach as its 2012 Commencement speaker. The 2012 Salt Lake Community College Commencement Ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 3 at 4:30 p.m. at the Maverik Center, located at 3200 South Decker Lake Drive in West Valley City, Utah.

Abby Wambach was a collegiate All-American as a player at the University of Florida who first joined the United States’ Women’s National Team in 2001. She has won an Olympic Games gold medal and led the U.S. team to the World Cup finals. Wambach has been recognized as the U.S. Soccer Female Athlete of the Year and FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year—and currently ranks second in lifetime international competition goals scored behind only her former teammate Mia Hamm.

In 2001, she made her WNT debut at that year’s Nike U.S. Women’s Cup. The next year, she was the second player taken in the WUSA draft by the Washington Freedom. In 2003, Abby started all five Women’s World Cup matches and helped the U.S. to a third place finish. After the World Cup, Abby was named U.S. Soccer’s Female Athlete of the Year for 2003. She scored four goals and had one assist on the gold medal-winning U.S. team at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. She received the 2004 U.S. Soccer Female Athlete of the Year for the second year in a row and finished fourth in the voting for the 2004 FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year.

In addition to her celebrated international career, Wambach has been instrumental in establishing a women’s professional soccer league in the U.S. She was drafted second in the Women's United Soccer Association’s (WUSA) 2002 draft. The WUSA was the first ever women's soccer league to provide a professional salary to all of its players. Wambach was named MVP of the championship match after leading the Washington Freedom to the league title. She also became a player/manager for the Women’s Professional Soccer league team the magicJack.

Wambach comes from a big, athletic family. The youngest of seven children, she has four brothers and two sisters.  Her parents came to all but four of her college games. She also has an English bulldog named Kingston who can ride a skateboard.
