Dramaturgy is a great career choice for writers, historians, researchers, theatre artists and many other areas of interest.

Sustainability Perspectives Talk by Theresa Evans: "Recycling Is Mightier Than the Sword"
Mar 25 @ 12:15pm

The Sustainability Perspectives Series presents "Recycling Is Mightier Than the Sword" with Theresa Evans, recycling specialist at the Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency.

The Chinese government recently announced a "National Sword" campaign to cut down on recycling contamination. China is a major player with significant influence in global recycling markets and their "sword" has caused many U.S. municipalities to rethink their recycling programs. Whether this changes what is accepted in curbside recycling, raises costs felt by taxpayers or impacts paper mills and other infrastructure in this country, a lot is happening with recycling right now. Learn about this dynamic and changing industry, current and future recycling trends and actions you can take at home to help ensure that recycling remains strong in New York State. Bring your toughest trash questions and try to stump the expert!

This event will take place at 12:20 p.m. on Monday, March 25, 2019 in the de Witt Lecture Room (Zabriskie Hall 106) on the Wells College campus. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.

This talk is part of the Center for Sustainability and the Environment's Sustainability Perspectives Series. Wells is committed to providing access to all events; anyone needing assistance should contact Marian Brown, director of the Center for Sustainability and the Environment, as soon as possible at mbrown@wells.edu or 315.364.3304.

Film Screening: "A Fantastic Woman"
Mar 26 @ 6:00pm

On Tuesday, March 26, 2019, the second of three films of the Hispanic Film Series for the spring 2019 semester will be presented by Alexander Torres, visiting assistant professor of Spanish. The 2017 Oscar-nominated film A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) will show at 6:00 p.m. in Stratton 209. All are welcome!

Synopsis

About Una mujer fantástica: "Sebastián Lelio's Oscar-nominated film A Fantastic Woman is a sublime study in the exalted ordeal of grief. It is also as gripping as any procedural crime thriller, and cops and police doctors do play a role. I went into a kind of alert trance watching this – in tandem with the heroine's own weightless alienation and shock. When the screen went dark prior to running the final credits, I assumed for an instant that some small initial section had come to a close. In fact, an hour and three quarters had gone by.
[ . . . ]
"Marina is in a very happy relationship with an older cis man: Orlando (Francisco Reyes) is a handsome, silver-haired, divorced guy in his 50s with a grown-up son. In the middle of the night, after a sumptuous and indulgent romantic meal, Orlando wakes up next to Marina, feeling desperately ill and disoriented. Poor panicky Marina prepares to drive him to hospital but leaves him alone outside on the landing of his apartment building while she flusters about getting her things. He dazedly staggers forward and falls down the stairwell, fatally worsening the situation while sustaining bruises that mean the police need to get involved.

"Lelio shows how this grim event brings all the conformism and cruelty of society into vivid focus. It was there all along of course, but it didn't matter as long as her relationship with Orlando protected her. At a single stroke, Marina's whole existence is pathologised and criminalized. She has no rights as Orlando's girlfriend; she must vacate his flat and isn't welcome at the funeral. His ex-wife and son do not conceal their hostility, and she suffers threats and assault from a brutish family member. Officials insist on calling her 'Daniel' and the police think that Orlando got his wounds from Marina, but scrupulously take into account the possibility that she may have been defending herself -- like many another trans woman being abused -- so she has to report for a medical examination, in an excruciatingly ambiguous state of victim or assailant. Her existence is on trial."

Lecture by Sarah Handley-Cousins '07: "Disability and the American Civil War"
Mar 29 @ 11:00am

 On Friday, March 29, at 11 a.m., Sarah Handley‐Cousins ’07, Ph.D. will return to campus to present “Disability and the American Civil War,” as part of the “There and Then” Wells College Biannual History Lecture Series. Her talk, which will take place in 307 Zabriskie Hall, will be followed by snacks and discussion.

Abstract

The Civil War has long been associated with disability—after all, piles of disembodied limbs feature heavily on battlefield tours, military histories, even television and film depictions. We often assume that disabled veterans held places of honor in the mid‐19th-century America, but the experience of disability in the Civil War era was not quite so simple. Disabled soldiers walked a fine line between honor and emasculation, and their struggle helps us to better understand the Civil War and its aftermath.

About the Speaker

Sarah Handley‐Cousins '07 is a clinical assistant professor of history and associate director of the Center for Disability Studies at the University at Buffalo. She is also an editor for the history blog Nursing Clio and a producer of Dig: A History Podcast.
