Students in Professor Megan Nyland's ENG224: Introduction to Creative Writing went in search of some inspiration last week.  This class session focused on introspection and the impact of concrete senses on memory.  Students walked the meditation labyrinth on the Greenspring campus and journaled about their experiences. They also swung on the swings and wrote poems that focused on memory and sensations of this activity, focusing on emotion and childhood memory.

According to the Wall Street Journal  students' minors can have a big impact on their careers.  Minors can help students broaden their knowledge base and diversify their experience.  Did you know that HaSS offers a robust program of minors, including Sociology, Philosophy, and Religion?  Our minors are very flexible and fit well with a variety of programs, so if you have space in your schedule (or on your bookshelf!) come check out your options.

Thank you to everyone who visited the HaSS tent on Saturday.  Despite the wind and chilly temperatures, we had a wonderful time and celebrated a Mustangs victory!

Talking statues, the legacy of slavery, Dracula-bot, a fish with a human face.  Each scene in Stevenson's Theatre & Media Performance production of DreamPlay reflects a dream experience of one of the cast members.  A seamlessly integrated ensemble piece, led by playwright and director, Jason Chimonides, DreamPlay is provocative and entertaining.  It left an impression comprised of sharp lines and blurred edges, much like the memory of a dream.

DreamPlay runs through 10/22, Studio Theatre (GS), 7pm, Admission free.

Each semester, HaSS hosts a series of conversations that center on questions of diversity and inclusion.  Organized by Dr. Ingrid Tulloch (Psychology) and Dr. Alex Boulton (History), these events provide students, faculty, and staff with a space in which to share ideas, raise questions, and learn from one another’s perspectives.  This series is called conversations on diversity and inclusion because our priority is to create a space for active give-and-take rather than passive absorption of information.  The Fall 2016 series wrapped up with a conversation in which faculty and students shared ideas about how to promote diversity and inclusion in the classroom.  Spring 2017 events will be posted soon—please join us!
