Wednesday, March 14th, 12-2 p.m.
This is a two-hour lunch-time session geared for both faculty and staff. In the first hour CC grants professionals Tess Powers, Ina Remus and Laura Hines will describe their respective roles on campus and how they serve as resources for the CC community. They will highlight some of the ways the CC community continues to benefit from grants awarded years ago as well as share information on some of CC’s most recent grants. The first hour will conclude with a “Top 10”-style countdown of some of the more common myths of the grants world. In the second hour, attendees will be invited to break into smaller groups to discuss projects/ideas/collaborations that might be suitable for an external grant; this is an opportunity to start brainstorming both for individual projects as well as for possible institutional efforts. Attendees will then spend some time exploring the College’s grants database, Pivot. Anyone with a general interest in grants is welcome – there no expectation that you will apply for a grant as a result of this session.

“Orientalism, Secular Feminism, and the War on Terror”
A Lecture by Nadia Guessous, Feminist and Gender Studies
Colorado College

Muslim women’s veiling practices have been a recurring object of commentary, condemnation and relentless investigation ever since 19th century Western travelers started writing about the Muslim women they encountered and the veils that concealed them from their sight. In the past three decades, veiling has reemerged as an omnipotent and visceral flashpoint, a subject of heated debate and moral panic, an object of state management, legislation and criminalization in various Western contexts. Rarely has a modern sartorial practice been the object of so much unwarranted attention and repeated condemnation. While many scholars have critically analyzed the politics of headscarf controversies in Western contexts, this presentation will focus instead on the transnational effects of this discourse of the veil on secular feminist politics and subjectivity in postcolonial Morocco. Based on years of field research among founding members of the feminist movement in Morocco, this paper highlights the relationship between secular forms of feminist exclusion and the conscripting logics of both colonial modernity and the war on terror.

Colorado College will be hosting AFA-NIET, the largest national competitive speech tournament in the country and we are in need of extra judges for the competition. We are seeking for support this prestigious event and are looking for individuals available to judge either Saturday and/or Sunday of April 7-8th. No experience? That’s not a problem! We will provide training sessions the week prior to the event that will get you caught up to speed.

This national tournament will provide a schedule or ‘dance card’ which indicates when and what event you will be judging. This will allow you to come and go throughout the day with minimal wait time. Meals will be provided on both Saturday and Sunday. If you are interested and are able to commit to both days (a one day or half day commitment is fine, too!) AFA will pay $150, otherwise you will be paid $15/ round.

Please email ztoth@coloradocollege.edu for a copy of the Hired Judge form that needs to be filled out and returned to Sarah Hinkle at shinkle@coloradocollege.edu if you are interested in helping out. If you are unable to commit, but know someone who might be willing, please send their contact information to Sarah.
