1. Dear students:

All Library Materials (Books DVDs and Videos) must be returned by

THURSDAY Dec . 13 (last day of exams)

A nonrefundable charge of $50 for books and $75 for DVDs and Videos will be charged to your account if they are late or not returned.

The Library Staff wishes you Happy Holidays!

2. To Students, Faculty, Staff, & Friends

On December 12/12 from 2-4 PM in the AER, students in the Principles of Design Class 285 will be presenting design concepts for potential productions of “Elephant’s Graveyard.” These students devised a design board (located in the south dressing room of Phipps) comprised of relevant images, facts, and background information for the Wells College Theatre Department’s production of “Elephant’s Graveyard.” Cast, crew, and the production team had the benefit of their research to help make a very successful production that gleaned three awards from the Theatre Association of New York State.
The design students continued work on the script “Elephant’s Graveyard” throughout the semester and came up with their own design creations for how they might have done the production based on their design concept- metaphor- one sentence maxim. Their presentations will address scenic, lighting, costume, make-up, sound and prop design. Presentations will be 20-30 minutes long. The design teams presenting are Katie Cloe & Shakira Reynolds, Veronica Frisenda & Jeremiah Miller, and Giavarna Faison & Stephanie Leung.
Come and see interesting, exciting and different interpretations on a theme that the Wells Community got the opportunity to know intimately. Questions and comments after each presentation are welcome.
Sincerely, Joe DeForest

1. Still looking for a course for the spring semester??

History 329
Twentieth-Century Europe
Prof Jomarie Alano
Wednesday afternoons at 1:30 to 4:20pm

This course is designed to be an introduction to the social, cultural, economic, and political history of Europe in the 20th Century, concentrating on the period from the beginning of World War I in 1914 to the end of the century. Using primary documents, recent historical scholarship, memoirs, documentaries, and feature films, we will examine such topics as the causes and consequences of World War I and II; the Russian Revolution; the Great Depression; the Spanish Civil War; the rise of Nazism, Fascism, and anti-Semitism; the social and cultural revolutions of the post-WW II period; the collapse of Communism; shifting notions of gender over the century; and the challenges to tolerance in the multicultural Europe that emerged during the century. Each seminar will highlight a specific issue or problem related to the topic for the week, focus on an individual who made a significant contribution to the history of Europe in the 20th Century, or involve an analysis of relevant primary source documents.

It is open to anyone with sophomore standing or above. No other prerequisites.
