Christal Brown and other members of the Movement Matters Steering Committee

Join members of the Movement Matters steering committee on Wednesday, April 30, at 12:30 p.m. in the Axinn Center Abernethy Room for a discussion on the process of creating interdisciplinary research models that foster embodied scholarship. This discussion will begin by looking into current research models that blend dance and science and identify other collaborative models that could be supported thorough our current curriculum. The Movement Matters steering committee comprises faculty from Dance, Education Studies, Biology, and Sociology and Anthropology. Movement Matters is a three-year initiative funded by the Mellon Foundation to support the work of an interdisciplinary movement artist working across the disciplines of the college.

Lunch will be served. Please RSVP to dbernier@middlebury.edu by noon on Friday, April 25.

Sandra Carletti awarded a Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation fellowship

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Sandra Carletti (Italian) has been awarded a fellowship from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation for a project titled The United Tables of Italy: Pellegrino Artusi and the Unification of Italy in the Kitchen. The grant will enable Sandra to travel to Italy during her 2014-15 leave to do research at the Pellegrino Artusi library in Forlimpopoli, Emilia-Romagna, which houses the archives for the iconic cookbook that Artusi published just thirty years after the official unification of Italy. She plans to examine documents and collect materials to enhance her teaching of Italian culture and history and to support creation of a new course on the intersection of literature, food, and language in the representation of Italian identity.
