IN CASE YOU MISSED IT — HSP 137H: Race in Media exhibit, available until Fall!

Albion College has a history of controversial and sensitive stories that are difficult to talk about. Our projects shine a light on these stories using the Pleiad.

If you didn’t catch the Honors Symposium HSP 137H: Race in Media final presentations last week, you can still find our semester-long projects and read up on these important glimpses into Albion College’s history in two ways:

  • Read our Digital Archive Projects online here (scroll to the bottom of the page), or
  • Visit the Library Archives (top floor of Mudd) and check out our exhibit in the glass cases, any time the Library is open through the early Fall Semester!

Senior Playwriting Capstone (Stage Reading)

Join the Albion College Theatre Department for a stage reading of a short student-written play, Playtime in Eden. This reading serves as part of a senior capstone project for playwrighting and will be followed by a Q&A/workshop.

Play Synopsis: The identity of the Judeo-Christian God is both enormous and malleable, simultaneously difficult to grasp and easy to morph. There have been endless discussions of God’s race and gender, but this absurdist play presents another axis of identity to consider: what if God were an overexcitable child? Witness the seven days of creation through a frenzy of crayons, creativity, and dinosaur chicken nuggets.

Date and Time: April 30th, 5pm – one day only.

Location: Herrick Theater Main Stage

Admission is free.
