Intended for anyone who will be serving on a staff search committee or participating in the hiring of staff in their department, this workshop will cover best practices for achieving a diverse candidate pool and an inclusive search process.
This one-hour historical performance program was filmed by American Dance Festival to preserve and celebrate the Black tradition in modern dance. It was originally presented by PBS's Dance in America on June 20, 2007.
This event is part of African American Dance: Form, Function and Style!, sponsored by the Amherst College Department of Theater and Dance, Five College Dance, The Arts at Amherst Initiative, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Center for Community Engagement, and the African and Caribbean Students Union.
During January interterm nine students from Amherst, UMass, Smith, and Mount Holyoke participated in “Adventures in Photography,” an interterm course taught by Joshua Baum and Takudzwa Tapfuma. Over the five-day course, students learned fundamental techniques of digital photography: manual exposure, composition, lighting, and post-production. The class ventured into the field for hands-on excursions to the New England Peace Pagoda, Montague Bookmill and downtown Northampton. The images in this exhibit are a selection of work created during the class.
Thank you to the Department of Art and the History of Art, and the Center for Community Engagement for sponsoring the course, and to Valentine Dining Hall for hosting this exhibition.
