All Day Last Day to Drop a Fall Course Without a Grade of "F"
Last Day to Drop a Fall Course Without a Grade of "F"
All Day Spring Advising
Spring Advising
8:30 AM - 8:30 PM Drawing=Thinking
Conceived in tandem with Cannot Be Described in Words: Drawing/Daring, at The Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, MA, the ‘exhibit’ will activate the gallery by transforming it into an interactive maker space for drawing and thinking. The programming is conceived as a response to The Art Complex Museum exhibit whose participants (four of whom are New England School of Art and Design faculty) share a sense of daring: exploring new approaches, scale and mediums that expand the definition of drawing and add to what that definition can be. 

Drawing = Thinking enhances the gallery as a site actuated by the correspondence of drawing to thinking and vice versa. Workshops and demos will give students and the general public and students the chance to experience the many ways that drawing and thinking overlap.  The results from these will contribute to a growing exhibit in the space of the gallery from November through January. 

All workshops will be during student activity period –on Tuesday or Thursday, from 1 – 2:30p.m. 
Pizza will be provided 
Check the gallery website for schedule of activities:

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Fluorescent Powder: Fingerprinting Dusting
The dye used in fluorescent powders react to ultraviolet (UV) and the purple/blue bands in the visible light spectrum. The hues of the powders can be matched to the color of the surfaces being processed and/or the wavelength of the light source being used. This helps eliminate any background interference that may occur from the surface's color intensity. Join us as we dust for fingerprints on various surfaces using fluorescent powders and UV light!  A free t-shirt and water bottle will be given to those who attend. Everyone is welcome, so invite a friend!

Location: Function Room 
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM Low Turnout in Municipal Elections: Implications for Democracy, Citizens of Color, and Low Income Individuals

Long term trends indicate that voter turnout in municipal elections in larger cities like Boston is on the decline. In municipal elections, turnout can be as low as single digits. Low-turnout elections tend to be dominated by whiter, more affluent, older voters. What are the implications of low turnout municipal elections for municipal services? For minorities? For democracy? Join us for a provocative and thoughtful discussion of the causes, consequences, and possible fixes for low turnout municipal elections.

SPEAKERS:

  • Sarah Anzia, professor at University of California, Berkeley and author of Timing and Turnout: How Off-Cycle Elections Favor Organized Groups
  • Zoltan Hajnal, professor at University of California, San Diego and author of America’s Uneven Democracy: Turnout, Race, and Representation in City Politics
  • Elena Letona, Executive Director, Neighbor to Neighbor Massachusetts

This event is presented by the Ford Hall Forum. Registration requested.
