The U.S. Embassy Slovenia and the American Slovenian Education Foundation (ASEF) are jointly organizing The Slovenian American Virtual Academic Symposium (SAVAS), which will take place online on Monday, November 16, 2020, from 5 PM to 8 PM CET / from 11 AM to 2 PM EST / from 8 AM to 11 AM PST.

 

The SAVAS will bring together professors, administrators, and other academics from both nations interested in enhancing formal, informal, research, or exchange-focused relationships. The symposium's goal is to show examples of highly successful collaborations between the U.S. and Slovenia, introduce available support mechanisms, and enable faculty to meet other faculty in their fields in the U.S. and Slovenia.

 

We are delighted to announce two outstanding keynote speakers; Robert Jeraj, Ph.D., is a Professor of Medical Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the U.S., and Anja Svetina Nabergoj, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship at the School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana in Slovenia.

 

We welcome all participants interested in enhancing formal, informal, research, or exchange-focused academic relationships between Slovenia and the U.S. across all levels and substantive areas. Though the symposium is free and open to the academic public, we request that you register in advance until Friday, November 13, 2020.

 

Additional information can be found on the symposium website.

 

You are invited to register!

Our compatriots in Canada have decided to use the time of quarantine for virtual socializing and consolidating Slovenian consciousness and attachment to their roots. And how could they do it better than through music. They recorded the song "In the Silent Valley". The organizer of the project, Canadian Slovene John Kajin, described the path from idea to realization. You are invited to read and watch the video.

 

At the beginning of March 2020 while scrolling through Facebook, I came across several videos of songs being posted  featuring many different people singing together, when we couldn’t physically be together. I thought this was a great idea and I knew many of my friends would be interested in taking part in this project. The song we picked was Folsom prison Blues by Johnny Cash and we put the video together and posted it on Facebook in March 2020.

 

We got such favourable responses and everyone enjoyed it, so we decided to do another video. This time a Slovenian classic, V Dolini Tihi by Ansambel Lojzeta Slaka. We have a large Slovenian community in the southern Ontario region with many talented musicians and singers, so I sent out the idea to the community and was amazed at the response I got. This was all happening at the beginning of Covid 19, so I thought this would be a great way to get the Slovenian community together while staying apart.

 

We had musicians from Murski Val, Golden Keys, Ansambel Gregoric, Spotlight Orchestra to participate   as well as many other talented accordion players. We had singers from Nasa Pesem, which is the choir at our local Slovenian Church, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Catholic Church as well as many other talented Slovenians.

 

In order to put the video together, we got Louis Mavec from Murski Val to play the song on accordion so everyone else could follow along when they made their video’s.  Slowly the videos started coming in and at the end, we had 9 accordion players, 4 button box players and many singers. Unfortunately , we were not able to incorporate the button box players into the video. Many of our accordion players live in the Southern Ontario region but we were also able to recruit a close friend from Chicago to be part of the is video as well.

Once we got all the videos, I was lucky enough to know a very talented person who was familiar with putting this videos together. This project could not of been completed without Travis Blackwell’s knowledge and skill. Travis has also completed several other videos for Facebook for our local Slovenian dance Group, Mladi Glas/ Planika.

 

Our Dolini Tihi video have been viewed by many friends, family as well as other people in Ontario, the U.S.A and now in Slovenia. I haven’t tracked who has watched the video but I’m glad to say we had a lot of positive feedback.

Slovenian Australian Academic Association (SAAA) cordially invites you to the 4th SAAA Conference, which will take place for the first time on-line over Zoom on 20 November 2020 between 12pm and 4:30pm Melbourne & Sydney time.

 

This year’s SAAA conference will be hosted by Te Herenga Waka-Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand and will run under the conference theme: “The role of place in an increasingly placeless world”. In Te Reo Māori, the language of the indigenous people of Aotearoa New Zealand, the word whenua refers to both “land” and “placenta”. It denotes the significance of “place” as a source of life and a direct link to one’s whakapapa (a line of descent from one’s ancestors), where genealogy and identity intersect.

 

It is an honour to partner again with the Slovenian Australian Chamber of Commerce (SACC), the Association of Slovenes Educated Abroad (VTIS) and the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Canberra. This conference is also supported by the Government Office of the Republic of Slovenia for Slovenians Abroad.

 

The conference will be officially opened by H. E. Dr Helena Jaklitsch, Minister for Slovenians Abroad, Republic of Slovenia Government Office for Slovenians Abroad. We have a fantastic line-up of speakers at the event, some of them include:

  • H. E. Mr Jurij Rifelj, Ambassador of the Republic of Slovenia to Australia
  • Keynote speaker: Dr Julija Sardelić, Te Herenga Waka-Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand who will talk about “Being placed in the ‘out of place’? Rethinking the place(lessness) of marginalised citizens across the Globe in 2020”
  • Keynote speaker: A/Prof Sergeja Slapničar, University of Queensland, Australia who will talk about “How do organisations protect themselves against cyber risk? Investigating cyber risk governance and management practices”
  • Business practice talk: Mr Črt Prašnikar, GM Global Premium Strategy at Fisher & Paykel Appliances, New Zealand who will share his experiences of a Slovenian manager working on both sides of the Tasman (interviewed by Ms Mateya Slobodnik from the Slovenian Australian Chamber of Commerce)

 

You can find more information about the conference on the link below, it is also necessary to register free of charge before the event.

 

We look forward to seeing you in November.

The conference language is English.
