School of Humanities and Social Sciences News

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!

Saturday is a good time to sit down with our furry friends and catch up on higher education news.  To that end, we’ll have occasional Saturday blogs that feature recent news stories or engaging articles that are particularly relevant for the Humanities & Social Sciences. 

Last week, Inside Higher Ed raised the question: does an author’s identity influence the way you read her or his work? Is it authentic for someone to write from the perspective of a different gender, class, or race?  How do science fiction or fantasy texts fit into this paradigm?  What is your opinion?

Stevenson's Hometown Homecoming week kicks off on Monday with a series of great events all leading up to Saturday's tailgate party and football game.  Please stop by the HaSS tent to visit with faculty members Jamie Goodall (Public History) and Chris Roberts (Theatre & Media Performance) and grab a snack.  We hope to see you there!
