News Events at Marlboro
Performance by Tim Collins '02
Wednesday, April 16, 7:00 pm • Ragle Hall, Serkin Center
Nationally touring solo theater performer and Marlboro alumnus Tim Collins returns to Marlboro with The Script, an award-winning educational theater piece about sexual assault prevention, rape culture, and masculinity. Tim's one-man show, winner of the "Best Educational Show" Award at the 2013 United Solo Theater Festival, depicts four young men at the edge of an incident—an episode of sexual assault involving a female friend. In the course of this eye-opening play, the four characters grapple with their attitudes and beliefs about men, women, and relationships, and make dramatic choices which change their friendships and lives. ”Tim Collins explores the complicated, scary realities of becoming a “man” in contemporary American society," said Indie Theater Now.
The Syrian Dilemma
Talk by Yasser Munif
Friday, April 18, 4:00 pm • Library Reading Room
An authority on urban sociology and Middle Eastern politics, Yasser Munif will share his perspective on the roots of the growing civil war in Syria. Munif is a scholar-in-residence at Emerson College, where he specializes in colonial history, racial identities, and the production of postcolonial space in former French colonial territories. His research explores the role of artistic transgressions within public spaces in challenging the deference and violence of totalitarian regimes. He is currently working on a book chapter on the relevance of revolutionary philosopher Franz Fanon in the context of the Syrian uprising.
