Halloween Double Feature

In honor of Halloween and Day of the Dead, the Spanish area (with the help of Lisa Hoff) has set up a displays (for this week only) in the Cunningham Library and Cleveland Hall that aim to entertain and inform you about Hispanic attitudes about topics that can be considered hard to understand. Moreover, the Wells College community is invited to attend the showing of two horror films:

Wednesday October 30: Cleveland Hall 208, 1:30PM: JUAN OF THE DEAD, a dark-comedy in the vein of Shaun of the Dead, is one of Cuba’s recent examples of Latin America’s thriving horror film industry. It satirizes the Cuban revolution while giving Zombie fans everything—and more—of what they want. 91 minutes, in Spanish with English subtitles.

Wednesday October 30: Stratton 209: 8PM: DRACULA (Spanish version). Shot simultaneously with the Bela Lugosi classic over a 22 day period, the Spanish version has been hailed by critics as “superior” to the Todd Browning directed Dracula. 104 minutes, in Spanish with English subtitles.

All films will be followed by a Q & A. – Submitted by Gerardo Cummings, gcummings

Racism Panel

Umoja invites you to our panel on the topic of racism!

Talking about racism often makes people uncomfortable and it can be quite difficult to get the conversation started, however, we believe a panel can get the conversation going! Come hear the panelist, students and faculty, discuss racism in their own experience and lives. Wait it gets even better… one of the panelist, Travis Gosa, is an Assistant Professor of Social Science at Cornell University’s Africana Studies and Research Center!

Join us on Monday, October 21st from 7-9pm in MacMillian Hall’s Art Exhibit Room (AER).­

Light refreshments will be served. – Submitted by Honey Bashir, hbashir

TUESDAY, October 22, 2013:

Lydie Haenlin Nonfiction Talk and Reading

Wells Emerita Professor of French Lydie Haenlin will give a talk entitled “A Book? Why and How?” which will include readings from her newly-published book “Angèle’s Notebook” / “Le Carnet d’Angèle.” Haenlin will discuss the nature of inspiration and the process of book making, joined by the book’s illustrator Margaret Manring and designer Anne Kilgore.

“Angèle’s Notebook” tells the story of Angèle, a young girl living in the village of Noizay in France’s Loire Valley. Angèle adopts a notebook found by the road as her confidant, writing about everything from the details of her daily life to the hopes and fears of adolescence. In the course of describing her life and her feelings towards those who share it, she reveals the culture and customs of French village life in the late nineteenth century.

The characters in the story are real, and the details of the narrative are historically authentic and based on the author’s extensive research. Signed copies of the book, in both languages, will be available at the reading. This event will begin at 7pm in the AER.

Refreshments will be served. – Submitted by Bruce Bennett, brbennett

Margaret Ward Nonfiction Reading

Margaret Ward, Professor Emerita of German at Wellesley College and wife of Wells President Tom De Witt, will read from and discuss her nonfiction memoir, Missing Mila, Finding Family, an account of the couple’s adoption of their son Nelson in Honduras in 1983 and their subsequent discovery and close involvement with his birth family.

Ms. Ward is the author of several books and numerous articles in her academic field, including a study of the nineteenth-century woman writer, Fanny Lewald (1811-1889), an early advocate of woman’s education. Missing Mila, Finding Family: An International Adoption in the Shadow of the Salvadoran Civil War (2011) presents a significant departure from her previous work. The story is woven together from interviews, journal entries, letters, photos, and other primary materials, undergirded by her research in the historical background.

As part of the program, their son Nelson Ward de Witt will share an extended preview of his documentary, Identifying Nelson/ Buscando a Roberto, a personal search for identity as one of the hundreds of disappeared children of the Salvadoran civil war (1980-1992).

Copies of Missing Mila, Finding Family are available at the Wells College Bookshop.

A reception will follow the reading. This event will begin at 7:30pm in Stratton 209. – Submitted by Bruce Bennett, brbennett

Barker, who was the first head of conservation at the British Library, has been editor of The Book Collector, the world’s only journal on book collecting, since 1965, and he has edited the most recent editions of John Carter’s ABC of Book Collecting.

His talk will focus on the important and enduring role of the 1963 catalogue for the printing exhibits held in London by the International Printing Machinery and Allied Trades Exhibition. The catalogue’s name was "Catalogue of a display of printing mechanisms and printed materials arranged to illustrate the history of Western civilization and the means of the multiplication of literary texts since the 15th century, organized in connection with the eleventh International Printing Machinery and Allied Trades Exhibition, under the title Printing and the Mind of Man, assembled at the British Museum and at Earls Court, London, 16–27 July 1963," but it is usually shortened to "Printing and the Mind of Man," or the even shorter "PMM."
