What You Googled This Week: Frat Ban Edition

(11/04/16 2:40pm)

If you’re a ’20, odds are the extent of your Dartmouth social experience has been bopping around from dorm party to dorm party scrounging for alcohol. Then, of course, there’s the Heorot highlighter party and Pop Punk if you were lucky enough to get in, or the North Park/South House dance party if you were truly desperate. Bright-eyed, not-jaded and with a whole new social scene opening up to you, you’re probably overwhelmed with questions:

Mark Israel, the former director of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, filed a lawsuit against DHMC last month.

Verbum Ultimum: Vote for Reproductive Rights

(11/04/16 4:15am)

Tuesday is Election Day. After a presidential race that has taken the better part of two years, and feels like it has taken the better part of a decade, we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. A great deal of ink has been spilled in this section concerning the presidential election. As important and historic as the presidential race is, this editorial is not about that; endorsements were made and what needed to be said was said. However, there is a lot more than just the White House at stake this coming Tuesday.

Chin: An Artists’ President

(11/04/16 4:15am)

President Barack Obama has been praised for being up-to-date with popular culture. He appeared on the travel and food show “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” for example, sharing beer and bun cha with the show’s host. He enjoys rap, especially Kendrick Lamar, and has sung with B.B. King. Nevertheless, the president’s purview on art remains rather limited, focusing on the mainstream rather than the avant-garde. Rather than celebrate boundary-pushing innovation, politicians tend to treat art as a mere subset of education policy or as a tool to prove their own relevance, not as its own political domain. We often overlook the political influence of art, especially that which lies outside of the mainstream.

Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gregory Pardlo delivered a much anticipated reading of his poems to a packed Sanborn House library yesterday afternoon. The excitement in the brightly-lit library offset any gloominess left present in the air after an afternoon onslaught of rain. The event began on time, with students antsy to take notes on the discussion and professors enthusiastically looking forward to picking Pardlo’s brain about his work.

Gavron’s ‘A Woman on the Edge of Time’ tells two stories in one

(11/04/16 4:00am)

Jeremy Gavron’s memoir “A Woman on the Edge of Time” gives the reader deep insight into the inner psyche of both Gavron and his mother. Hannah Gavron committed suicide at 29-years-old despite living a relatively charmed life. Gavron explores the complex ups and downs of her story with startling intensity. As the writer searches for his mother’s motivation in instigating her own death, he also explores the implications that this knowledge has had on his past and will have on his future.

‘Intimate Apparel’ predominantly features actors of color

(11/04/16 4:00am)

With simple Edwardian-style furniture strewn across the stage and plain white linen sheets hung to dry on laundry lines by the rafters and a multicultural patchwork quilt in the background, the set of “Intimate Apparel” (2003), like the play itself, breaks from the typical perceptions of a period piece. Broaching realities of sex work, immigration and racial and gender inequality in the early 20th century, the production not only recounts histories often left out of typical American narratives, but is also one of the few mainstage theater department productions at Dartmouth with a cast of predominantly people of color.
