Professor Jared Richman (English) has been awarded a one-month Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellowship to conduct research at the Library Company of Philadelphia and the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. The fellowship will support his current research project, “‘A Free Speech’: Elocution, Disability, and Identity in Early America.”
This fellowship research is part of a larger research project that traces the cultural construction of Anglo-American speech pathologies to better understand modern attitudes toward communication disorders.
Congratulations to Professor Richman on this wonderful opportunity!
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, a comedy nominated for 11 Tony Awards, is showing at the Fine Arts Center. This is the last weekend (shows are tonight through Sunday) to see this great show. As the program describes, “two con men, a beautiful woman, and the elite of the French Riviera collide in this clever and amusing farce.”
You can buy tickets here; CC students can receive free rush tickets one hour before the show at the FAC front desk!
In the annual Mathematical Contest in Modeling this spring, which included more than 10,600 teams worldwide competing, two CC teams received an honorable mention. Sohair Abdullah ’19, Nick Crews ’18, and Jack Schrott ’19 comprised one of the teams, and David Cui ’19, Xinling Dai ’20, and Vladimir Vintu ’20 formed the other team.
Both teams demonstrated exceptional creativity in designing a mathematical model of a real-world problem in just four days!
Last week, 54 advanced student musicians arrived on campus for our 34thSummer Music Festival. Over the course of their three weeks at CC, the Fellows will work with world-class faculty to further develop their musical talents.
