The Library Partners will be continuing our “Last Lecture” series with History Professor Susan Ashley.

After reflecting on what matters to them, each speaker will give a hypothetical “last lecture,” conveying whatever insights they want to impart to the world as a culmination of their thinking on the topic of their choosing.

Mark your calendars for this Friday in the Tutt Library Data Viz area at 3:30. A reception will follow.

I have been sponsoring the KCME shows Ladies Who Lunch (about women in classical music) and Instrumentality (a tour of instruments and their music through the ages) for some years and would like to find partial replacement sponsors for both shows. If you listen to KCME and like their music and might wish to be a partial sponsor, please let me know and I will introduce you to their sponsorship manager. Thanks, Amanda Udis-Kessler

Theatre/Dance 8th block production of “Coriolanus, or Helter-Skelter”
Norberg Studio, Cornerstone Arts Center, Thursday, May 9th @ 7:30, Friday, May 10th @ 7:30 and Sat. May 11th at 3:00pm (matinee) No evening performance (you are welcome Llamapalooza).

A mashup of William Shakespeare and the Beatles, devised by Tom Lindblade and designed by Max Sarkowsky ’20, Gypsy Ames, & Heidi Eckwall.

“Shakespeare’s great tragedy is a meditation on failed political leadership and the senseless violence and corrosion left in its wake. The chaos of Coriolanus’ Rome is reflected in the helter-skelter fall of a dynasty and a society, showing what happens when personal ambition and grievance supplant ethical norms and moral order. A play for our times.”

Tickets available at the Worner Student Desk or at the door.
Free with CC ID, $5.00 general Public

Students aspire to develop a deeper understanding of our shared history through their research projects using Colorado College’s student newspapers. As faculty and staff at CC, you know how transformative these moments of discovery and new understanding can be.
Tutt Library is working on a project to improve access to student newspapers by making our digitized copies of student newspapers from 1880 to the present (including the Occident, Collegian, Tiger, and Catalyst) fully searchable.
To learn more about our project and how you might help, visit crowdfund.coloradocollege.edu/TheTiger. Some recent classes using student newspapers are highlighted in the “Updates” section.
