Patagonia: Lunch with John Collins, '90
Time: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Murray-Aikins Dining Hall Test Kitchen & Conference Room: Come have lunch with John Collins, '90, Vice President of Global Sales at Patagonia. John's career with Patagonia has spanned nearly 20 years as a sales leader and senior executive. John will speak about his career at Patagonia and the opportunities at the company. Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothes for climbing – as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. These are all silent sports. None require a motor; none deliver the cheers of a crowd. In each sport, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between us and nature.

Writing Center Workshop
Time: 5:45 PM to 6:45 PM
Bolton Hall 382: Paraphrasing: Don't Quote Me When is paraphrasing appropriate, as opposed to quoting? When does paraphrasing border on plagiarizing, and how can we avoid that misstep? In this workshop we’ll look at the distinctions between appropriate and in appropriate paraphrasing and work on improving our own use of the tool. Bring along passages you’d like to quote, paraphrase, or simply refer to, so that we can put these essential ways of talking with our sources to efficient and rightful use.

Palamountain Hall Davis Auditorium: Recalling Jewish CalcuttaLecture by Jael SillimanDr. Silliman is the founder and curator of Digital Archive entitled “Recalling Jewish Calcutta”(www.jewishcalcutta.in). She is a world-renowned researcher dedicated to preserving the history of Kolkata, India’s Jewish heritage. Kolkata’s Jewish community came to India from Baghdad at the time of the British Raj. The Kolkata Jews have since left a few traces behind. Among them are three impressive and large synagogues, two schools, and a cemetery. As Dr. Silliman explains: “Today, with barely thirty Jews left in the community, most very elderly, the community lives on as a memory. Soon those who knew Jewish Calcutta will no longer be with us.”Among Dr. Silliman’s many accomplishments are multiple honors, including a Senior Nehru Fulbright Scholar Award, International Human Rights Award from the Iowa City Human Rights Commission, and Outstanding Book Award for Undivided Rights: Women of Color Organizing for Reproductive Justice. Among her other books are Policing the National Body; Jewish Portraits, Indian Frames; and Dangerous Intersections: Feminist Perspectives on Population, Environment, and Development. Her articles on development and gender issues are have been published worldwide in journals and media outlets, such as Time and The Huffington Post.Prior to dedicating herself full-time to preserving Kolkata’s Jewish heritage, Dr. Silliman was a tenured Associate Professor at the Women’s Studies Department at the University of Iowa. This Jacob Perlow event is co-sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Special Programs, the Political Science Department, and MDOCS.

The Picture of Doian Gray Screening
Time: 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Tang Teaching Museum Somers: Join the Tang at 6 pm on Thursday, November 9, for a screening of Albert Lewin’s 1945 adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray followed by a conversation with Skidmore English Professor Barbara Black and Tang Mellon Collections Curator Rebecca McNamara. The film tells the story of the aristocratic Dorian Gray, who, believing that an oil portrait holds the peak of his youth and beauty, forfeits his soul in exchange for eternal youth. Over time the portrait reflects his aging and increasing moral corruption while his own face and body remain beautiful.The screening and conversation is organized in conjunction with the Tang’s exhibition Other Side: Art, Object, Self, which features the work Dorian Gray, 2001, by Yinka Shonibare MBE. In this series of 12 photographs, Shonibare—who was born in London of Nigerian descent, raised in Lagos, and later returned to live and work in London—emulates film stills, presenting an adaptation of the original novel and Lewin’s film in which the artist stands in for the title character, his racial background adding further depth to the story of inner and outer self, beauty and ugliness, truth and artifice. Shonibare conveys all but one of his photographs in black and white, mimicking the grayscale film’s climactic reveal of the wizened portrait in Technicolor.The screening of The Picture of Dorian Gray is free and open to the public. This event is supported in part by Accelerate: Access and Inclusion at the Tang Teaching Museum, a project of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The Age of Consequences

Filene Hall Filene Recital Hall: The Sustainability Office and Saratoga Unites have partnered to screen excerpts of the film The Age of Consequences, with an accompanying panel discussion and Q&A with Nurcan Atalan-Helicke, Assistant Professor in Environmental Studies and Sciences, and Lance Clark, former United Nations Ambassador. A full synopsis of The Age of Consequences is below:"‘The Hurt Locker’ meets ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES investigates the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration, and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability.Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS, and the European refugee crisis – and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict.Whether a long-term vulnerability or sudden shock, the film unpacks how water and food shortages, drought, extreme weather, and sea-level rise function as ‘accelerants of instability’ and ‘catalysts for conflict’ in volatile regions of the world.These Pentagon insiders make the compelling case that if we go on with business as usual, the consequences of climate change – waves of refugees, failed states, terrorism – will continue to grow in scale and frequency, with grave implications for peace and security in the 21st century.The film’s unnerving assessment is by no means reason for fatalism – but instead a call to action to rethink how we use and produce energy.As in any military defense and security strategy, time is our most precious resource."

Irish Dance Club
Time: 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Williamson Sports Center Multipurpose Room: The Irish Dance Club strives to teach traditional and modern renditions of irish dance steps to its club members. Most members in the club are musicians who play dance music. They enjoy learning the dances to songs that they usually are playing, in order to better understand them. Half of the club meetings are taught by an Irish Dance teacher, Gretchen Tisch, who will strive to push the limits of our understanding of dance with her very hip modern takes. The other half of the meeting times we will learn traditional step dances. All club members are invited to share their new found knowledge wednesday nights at a music session that takes place at the Parting Glass. The club occasionally performs during Christmas at the Farmer's Market or on campus. Feel free to come join us and learn another form of dance expression!

Whole Grain: Experiments in Film & Video - Contemporary Experiments in Animation
Time: 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Tang Teaching Museum Somers: Join us on Thursday, October 26, at 7:00 pm, for Contemporary Experiments in Animation, an evening of short avant-garde animations, featuring the work of five contemporary animators working in various styles and methods. The evening will include video work by Hank Willis Thomas, Kambui Olujimi, Carla Gannis, Harun Farocki, Helen Marten, and Christina Grupposo. By employing wildly different approaches to animation, such as stop motion, collage, CGI, appropriated video games, and even emojis, these artists render recognizable imagery and iconography to make deep observations about contemporary society, politics, religion, and the meaning of life. This event is part of Whole Grain, our new experimental film and video series. Contemporary Experiments in Animation Films: 1000 Marys (Christina Gruppuso, US, 2001, 4 min., digital)Garden of Emoji Delights (Carla Gannis, US, 2015, 3 min, digital)Parallel IV (Harun Farocki, Germany, 2014, 12 min., digital)Orchids, or a Hemispherical Bottom (Helen Marten, 2013, 20 min., digital)Winter in America (Hank Willis Thomas & Kambui Olujimi, 2005, 5 min., digital)About Whole GrainThe Tang Teaching Museum’s new series Whole Grain explores classic and contemporary work in experimental film and video. Our series of six programs this fall features programs highlighting found-footage pioneer Bruce Conner (October 7), contemporary digital animation (October 26), short films in the Cubist film tradition (November 4), Maya Deren’s experimental documentary on Haitian Vodou (November 11), a feature-length exploration of the animated .gif (November 16), and the campy world of brothers George and Mike Kuchar (December 2). Whole Grain is programmed by Museum Store and Publications Manager Sean Fuller and Educator for College and Public Programs Tom Yoshikami. All events are free and open to the public.

Writing Center Workshop
Time: 5:45 PM to 6:45 PM
Bolton Hall 382: The Essay Concludes: An Introduction to ConclusionsWhat does a strong conclusion look like? How and why do some essays trail off, become repetitive, fall flat, or leap into another universe of ideas? In this workshop--just in time for the conclusions of the semester--we’ll look at various ways in which an essay’s ending can continue to engage us, even surprise us, after claims have been made, developed, and supported. A voice in our head often asks, After all that, now what do I do? We’ll strive to find out. We’ll see how both published and student essays can, as they come to a close, draw out the implications of their ideas without stating a brand-new thesis or straying far afield. And we’ll practice applying what we learn to our own conclusion writing.

Afterwards, we'll make sculptures from wooden spools and colorful buttons, gathering inspiration from his technique of taking something old and turning it into something new. Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most programs run from 2:00 – 3:30 pm and include a tour of a specific exhibition. All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. Materials are provided. Reservations are required—for additional information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.
