80's Invasion

80s music

80s Invasion takes the music of the '80s very seriously. This is the music we listened to on our original Sony Walkmen, the bands whose names we stenciled on our pee-chees, jeans, Nikes, and in some cases, all over town. When MTV first came around, these were the bands whose videos we watched all night at our friends' houses, and the first concerts we went to. Some of our most memorable experiences (ahem) occurred listening to these songs. This music matters and we care enough about it to do it right. The members of 80s Invasion are seasoned professional musicians with numerous recording and tour credits. The band was formed out of a serious admiration and fondness of the great dance music of the 1980s.

Grit City Think & Drink: The Pursuit of Happiness: Lessons and Values from Eastern and Western approaches

Talks/Lectures

As the rainy winter months end, we are ready to shed the gloom and embrace the happiness of summer. But what else impacts happiness besides weather? In this Think and Drink, UW Tacoma Writing Studies professor Annie Nguyen will discuss a theme of many of her writing courses, the pursuit of happiness and how it is shaped in America. Learn about and engage in different Eastern and Western approaches and philosophies on happiness and why it matters. Born and raised in Mobile, Alabama as the daughter of refugees, Annie Nguyen’s exposure to racism, justice, and poverty in the Deep South cultivated her passion for social justice - and likely, her notions of escapism as happiness. After graduating The George Washington University, she completed a Fulbright in Vietnam and an MFA in Creative Nonfiction at the University of Montana. She served as an Assistant Professor of English at the Community of College in Baltimore County for eight years, where, under an NEH grant, she began to research Eastern and Western philosophies related to societal norms and happiness. In 2016, she joined the Writing Studies faculty at the University of Washington-Tacoma, with the Pursuit of Happiness as the theme for her research and writing class. Grit City Think & Drink brings scholars and experts from various disciplines face-to-face with the general public.

Grit City Think & Drink: Muslim Girl Saves the World: Ms. Marvel and Islam in the Comics

Talks/Lectures

Superheroes such as Superman or Captain America have been consistently popular, but in response to changing cultural expectations, their ranks are becoming more diverse, with Wonder Woman and Black Panther joining the pantheon of superhuman costumed crime fighters. In this talk UW Tacoma's Andrea Modarres will examine a very different superhero, the rebooted Ms. Marvel, whose alter ego is the teenaged, Pakistani-American, Muslim Kamala Khan. In juggling the pressures of adolescence, second-generation immigrant identity, and her newly-discovered super powers, this new Ms. Marvel humanizes Islam in a 21st century context and illustrates the influence of representation in popular culture. Andrea Modarres is an Assistant Professor whose research focuses on 20th and 21st century American multiethnic literature and identity in the U.S. She teaches a range of literature courses at UWT, from specialized multiethnic literature, to young adult literature and science fiction, as well as introductions to literature and to American studies. Grit City Think & Drink brings scholars and experts from various disciplines face-to-face with the general public. The evening begins with a presentation or lecture which leads to a moderated discussion with the audience.
