Female artists and earth-friendly materials take center-stage at Sculpturefest

(07/14/23 6:00am)

In Woodstock, Vermont, just a few turns off of Central Street and down a quiet gravel road, Charlet and Peter Davenport ring in their 35th annual Sculpturefest. Charlet Davenport says she initially founded the year-round exhibition in an effort to raise money for outdoor art — inspired by her visits to outdoor galleries like Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, New York. 

Karty: Congress and the Courts Are Wrong About Unions

(07/14/23 8:10am)

Amidst the current uproar about the Supreme Court’s recent decisions, one topic is notably absent from discourse: unions and workers’ rights. On June 1, the Supreme Court ordered a workers union to pay for damages incurred during their strike in Glacier Northwest, Inc. v. Teamsters. Before that, Janus v. The AFSCME overturned unions’ ability to collect fees from non-union members, while Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid severely limited unions’ ability to speak to workers. These decisions show that this Supreme Court is the most anti-labor Court in nearly a century. All of these decisions overturned decades — sometimes nearly a century — of precedent, laws and widely accepted doctrines. These decisions all but spit in the face of current unions.

(07/14/23 6:05am)

THEA 65, ‘Summer Theater Lab’ — a course offered only in the summer by the theater department  — exposes students to experiential theater through student, alumni and professional original works. The course is divided into three projects: VoxLab, Frost award-winning, student-written plays and the New York Theater Workshop. 

Azar: The Art of Saying Nothing

(07/07/23 8:10am)

On June 29, two campus-wide emails were sent out by College President Sian Leah Beilock and Dean of the College Scott Brown, in turn. Finally, I would know what the leadership of the College thought about the Supreme Court’s ruling in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard. However, I was disappointed by the emails. I read and reread them, only to find out they’d said nothing substantive — only irresolute words, noncommittal phrases and the oddly-timed assurance that, lest we forget, “[we] are not alone.”

‘A time for us to fall back in love with the sport:’ Student athletes reflect on training through sophomore summer

(07/07/23 5:00am)

For many second-years at Dartmouth, sophomore summer provides a time to bond as a class, commit to new activities for a term and enjoy momentary freedom from the normal demands of extracurriculars. Student-athletes are no exception. 

Lane: The Bear In The Room

(07/07/23 8:05am)

This month, the world witnessed quite the whirlwind of events in Russia. Yevgeny Prigozhin led his Wagner mercenary company in a short-lived but shocking mutiny against the Russian military, with Wagner forces driving from the Southern city of Rostov-on-Don to less than 150 miles from Moscow. If they had completed their march, it would have been about the driving distance between Chicago and Washington, D.C. Given that the whole rebellion only lasted about a day, this is quite a feat — and a very embarrassing one for the Russian government. If it can’t even stop a column of mercenaries driving in broad daylight on the highway, the Russian state seems pretty vulnerable. What matters here is that had the revolt lasted longer, it easily could have generated a massive wave of refugees, and it seems unlikely anyone would have been prepared. Next time, we need to be.

Summer performance groups: a fun way to find new communities on campus

(07/07/23 6:05am)

Towards the end of week one, students from all areas of campus with varying degrees of experience flocked to dance, improv and a cappella auditions. Whether to revisit a long lost talent, try something completely new or meet different people, summer performance groups are a highly anticipated part of sophomore summer, according to students. 

Deep Cuts: Science Fiction Edition

(07/07/23 6:00am)

If Dartmouth was a movie, sophomore summer would be the cliche to end all cliches. But there’s no doubt that this term means many things to rising Dartmouth juniors. For some, it marks their first term taking a break from a sport they’ve played their whole time at Dartmouth; others take two classes and split their time between the river and Webster Avenue. For me, it means finally getting back to writing after a term as an editor for the Mirror. But I won’t lie to you, the other day, when I was researching films to write about, I thought to myself, “Why am I even doing this?”

Class of 1953 Commons undergoes construction of new dining section

(07/07/23 9:00am)

The Class of 1953 Commons is currently undergoing renovations to add a new dining station that is free of the top nine allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, wheat and soy, according to Dartmouth Dining director Jon Plodzik. The construction, which began on June 19, is expected to conclude “by mid-August at the latest,” Plodzik said.
