Arzu Ozkal (M.F.A, SUNY Buffalo, 2005; B.A, Bilkent University, 1998) is interdisciplinary artist, designer and researcher whose work focus on design’s role in looking for forms of creative and critical outcomes through social participation. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at San Diego State University. Prior to joining San Diego State University in Fall 2011, she spent three years on the faculty of the Art Department at Oberlin College teaching new media practices. Since 2011, Ozkal has been working together with women from Turkey, Europe and USA to design platforms of social exchange. Ozkal co-edited with Dr. Claudia Pederson, Gün: Women’s Networks a DIY book project investigating informal networks and their extension into digital media with the aim of gaining understanding of the sociocultural conditions impacting women’s participation in contemporary culture (2013).

Her lecture will present three iterations of the project “Gün”, which she has been facilitating for the past three years. She will talk about the first gathering that took place in Istanbul, Turkey during ISEA 2011, a second one in Athens, Greece, which was part of the Home/s Exhibition at Benaki Museum in 2013, and the final one at a Design Inquiry residency in Vinalhaven, Maine in 2014.

“Gün(s)” are informal hubs of social networks where women exchange recipes and skills; share opinions and remedies, and discuss issues and concerns about their local communities. “Gün” draws from the Turkish tradition of women’s social gatherings and it literally means day; sun; sunlight, sunshine; daytime; today, present; time; age, period; good times; date; at-home day.

Portland State University is the home away from home for more than 2,300 international students from 86 countries, so it’s no wonder International Night sells out every year. 

Hosted by the Organization of International Students, the annual event draws about 800 people to three floors of Smith Memorial Student Union to try food, watch performances and learn about cultures from around the world. 

This year’s theme was “Wonders of the World” and featured folk dances from Iran, Nepal, Brazil, Bangladesh and Estonia; Korean pop (K-pop) dance; and music from Indonesia, China, and Saudi Arabia.
