Knight Library Browsing Room

Cinema Studies invites the UO community to a “meet and mingle” with Marmoset Music’s Bob Werner.  Join us for cookies, beverages and a casual get together. Free and open to the UO community.

Marmoset is a full-service music agency for brands, filmmakers and creatives that specializes in curated music for licensing, award-winning music production, music supervision, clearances, customizations, sound design and more.  

Bob Werner (he/him) is the Head of Creative Services at Marmoset, where he leads all aspects of curating and creating music for Marmoset’s vast catalog, as well as custom scoring and sound design projects for global clients in advertising, film, TV and more. Before joining Marmoset to shape one of the top performing sync catalogs in the industry, Bob studied video and sound production at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, pursuing his lifelong passion in music and cinema. Fun fact: Bob's favorite thing about living in Portland is the vibrant indie cinema scene, where he saw 50 films in theaters in 2023 and aims to see 100 this year.  Through his 10+ years working in sync licensing, he’s developed and helped launch dozens of artists into successful, full-time music careers, with licensing revenue as a cornerstone of their income, ultimately supporting lifelong pursuits in music. Bob is based in Portland, Oregon.

This event is part of the 2024 Art of Producing Visiting Filmmaker Series, featuring screenings, talks, and receptions with award-winning producers and filmmakers. All events are free and open to the UO community.

Jamie Richards: The Third Way: Translation in and out of Comparative Literature
May 21
7:00 p.m.
Gerlinger Hall Gerlinger Lounge

Translation studies has blossomed in recent decades,settling into various institutional homes and expanding from its cultural turn in all kinds of interdisciplinary directions; meanwhile, we are in a veritable golden age of literary translation in the Anglophone world, with increased support for international literature, diversification of the profession, and myriad opportunities for publication. But who is driving? The translator, or the translation scholar? Can one still be both? Jamie Richards (COLT PhD, 2014) reflects on the state of literary translation today as a practice within and without the academy discussing her own experience and career trajectory.
