Join us for our 2nd Annual Ethics and the Common Good Division III Showcase. We’ll be celebrating the multidisciplinary projects of some of our Division III students connected to the Ethics and the Common Good Project. Come hear about their work and learn how their research is processing, navigating, and transforming the systems they’ve interrogated, pushing us to redefine what we believe and value. All are welcome to attend.

We look forward to sharing space and stories, as well as cake!

Literature like life is full of ambiguities, and their presence in a text helps convey the complexity of human relations. For Gerard Manley Hopkins an ambiguous line may be intended to help the reader approach something ineffable–while in a poem by Osip Mandelstam it might conceal a message deemed so dangerous by the state it could cost a poet’s life.So what happens to these ambiguities when we as translators take a text out of one context and plop it into another? How do we preserve modify transform or metamorphose danger?
Wednesday, March 20th from 6:30-8:30pm, Art Barn Studio 1

Simultaneously gay, straight, queer, masculine and feminine, Princess embodies the fluidity and coherence between the seemingly contradictory. ‘Out There’ (2019; 4K video, live performance; 55:20min) is a concept video album and live performance piece by the band Princess. It explores the role men ought to be playing during the current cultural reckoning of misogyny. The video’s science fiction narrative explores the power of the Divine Feminine through collaborations with JD Samson, visual artist Jennifer Meridian, and the band TEEN.
