This semester, a birth doula workshop will be happening on campus. The course will be four full days long on March 23 and 24, and April 6 and 7. This opportunity will be open to Amherst College community members, as well as people from the local community. The workshop will be hosted by Michelle L'Esperance, a trained doula.
Stop by the Mead to find new connections among works on view with student museum educators. Each week we’ll focus on different themes that bring student interests to the fore.

All programs are free and open to the public!
The Department of Theater and Dance performs Doctor Faustus, Christopher Marlowe’s harrowing play about a brilliant scholar who sells his soul to the devil. The wildly irreverent production stars Wesley Guimarães ’19 in his senior thesis project in acting, and Maki Ybarra-Young ’20 as Mephistopheles. The show is directed by Professor Ron Bashford ’88, with set, props, costume, lighting and sound design provided by professional staff and guest artists Dedalus Wainwright, Barbara Neulinger, Sarah Woodham, Kathy Couch and Jake Meginsky. The Five College student cast also includes Samuel Hood, Max Nemhauser, Antigoni Papapostolou, Emma Ratshin, Lorelle Sang, Sebastian Son, Renz Toledo, Lindsay Turner and Jasper Wolf, stage managed by Julian Brown.
Seating is limited; reservations are strongly encouraged. For reservations, call (413) 542-2277.
