A Discussion with Carey Perloff


Thursday, February 11, 2016 - 4:15pm
Alumnae Hall Ruth Nagel Jones Foyer (100D)

Carey Perloff, Artisitic Director of the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco, speaks of her professional journey and the role of theatre in today's world.

Perloff is celebrating her 24th season as artistic director of A.C.T. Her tenure there has been marked by the rebuilding of the earthquake-damaged Geary Theater (now the American Conservatory Theater), the creation of a new core company of actors; revitalization of the acclaimed A.C.T. Master of Fine Arts Program; receipt of the 1996 Jujamcyn Theaters Award, honoring A.C.T.’s efforts to develop creative talent for the theater; a series of international collaborations and dozens of successful productions.

Perloff is also an award-winning playwright. Her play Kinship premiered at the Théâtre de Paris last October in a production starring Isabelle Adjani and Niels Schneider and was produced at the Williamstown Theater Festival last summer, starring Cynthia Nixon and directed by Jo Bonney. Waiting for the Flood has received workshops at A.C.T., New York Stage and Film, and Roundabout Theatre. Higher was developed at New York Stage and Film, won the 2011 Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation Theatre Visions Fund Award, and received its world premiere in February 2012 in San Francisco. Luminescence Dating premiered in New York at The Ensemble Studio Theatre, was coproduced by A.C.T. and Magic Theatre, and is published by Dramatists Play Service. The Colossus of Rhodes was workshopped at the O’Neill National Playwrights Conference, premiered at Lucille Lortel’s White Barn Theatre, and was produced at A.C.T. in 2003.

Before joining A.C.T., Perloff was artistic director of Classic Stage Company in New York, where she directed the world premiere of Ezra Pound’s Elektra, the American premiere of Pinter’s Mountain Language, and many classic works. Under Perloff’s leadership, CSC won numerous OBIE Awards, including the 1988 OBIE for artistic excellence. In 1993, she directed the world premiere of Steve Reich and Beryl Korot’s opera The Cave at the Vienna Festival and Brooklyn Academy of Music.

A recipient of France’s Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and the National Corporate Theatre Fund’s 2007 Artistic Achievement Award, Perloff received a B.A. Phi Beta Kappa in classics and comparative literature from Stanford University and was a Fulbright Fellow at Oxford. She was on the faculty of the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University for seven years, and teaches and directs in the A.C.T. Master of Fine Arts Program. Perloff is on the board of the Hermitage Artist Retreat in Sarasota, Florida, and is the proud mother of Lexie and Nicholas. Perloff is the author of Beautiful Chaos: A Life in the Theater (City Lights, March 2015).



An Intimate Portrait of Motherhood

Featuring works by Katie Doyle & Anna Ogier-Bloomer


February 29–April 1
Jewett Art Center Art Sculpture Court

This exhibition forces the viewer to confront the sensual, intimate nature of breastfeeding and the physical mother-child relationship. Through photography and video, these two artists use the lens to examine and cope with the physical, emotional and mental complexities of the mother’s body. Katie Doyle’s work gives the audience a vantage point so close they feel as if they’re seeing from inside her, while her son suckles and consumes milk or entangles his soft limbs in hers. Ogier-Bloomer’s photographs utilize a frank, unapologetic voice shared between image-maker and subject: whether she appears in the image with her daughter, her mother, or from behind the camera. Both artists examine this unique maternal communication based in touch—a language without words, rooted in biology and the senses.

Raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Anna Ogier-Bloomer holds an MFA in Photography & Related Media from Parsons School of Design, where she was awarded the Photography Department Prize in 2011. Shereceived her BFA from The School of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where she was the recipient of the Yousuf Karsh Prize in Photography and a Dean's Travel Grant. Ogier-Bloomer has exhibited at galleries and museums nationally, including the Bridge Art Fair in Miami/Basel, The Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and at the Attleboro Arts Museum in Massachusetts.  She has received grants from Chashama in New York, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and CSArts Cincinnati. Anna has been an adjunct Assistant Professor at the City University of New York. She currently lives in New York City and travels often for her work.



Conservatives on Campus

Myths and Realities, a Freedom Project Panel Discussion


Thursday, March 10, 2016 - 6:00pm
Margaret Clapp Library Lecture Room

Conservative activists often portray colleges and universities as bastions of liberal indoctrination with professors openly hostile to conservative students and colleagues. Liberals often reply that the lack of conservative presence on campus is a result of anti-intellectual attitudes among conservatives themselves. Eschewing the usual polemics, panelists will share their empirical work on these questions and discuss their implications for current debates on politics on campus. This event will feature a panel discussion of the professors' varying political and philosophical views. 

About the panelists: 

Amy Binder,  Professor of Sociology, University of California, San Diego

Binder's principal research interests are in the areas of cultural sociology, higher education, politics, and organizations. Professor Binder’s recent book, Becoming Right: How Campuses Shape Young Conservatives, was published in January 2013. Co-authored with Kate Wood, the book looks at how today’s right-leaning college students experience life on two university campuses—one an elite private institution, the other a major public university—and how students belong to a web of national and local conservative organizations which provide considerable resources to them. Professor Binder’s current project is a case study of Harvard and Stanford’s effects on students’ career aspirations, with a particular emphasis on students’ trajectories into finance, consulting, and high tech careers. Professor Binder was elected to serve as the 2014-2015 Chair of the Sociology of Education section of the American Sociological Association; is a member of the Scholars Strategy Network with San Diego organizers John Skrentny and David Fitzgerald; and is a deputy editor of the journal Sociology of Education. At UC San Diego she is a founding member and organizer of an interdisciplinary workshop called The Workshop for the Study of Conservative Movements and has co-organized four UCSD Culture Conferences, resulting in a widely read special issue of The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science called “Cultural Sociology and Its Diversity.”

 

Neil Gross, Professor of Sociology, Colby College

Gross works primarily on sociological theory and the sociology of intellectual life. He is the author of Why Are Professors Liberal and Why Do Conservatives Care? (Harvard, 2013) and Richard Rorty: The Making of an American Philosopher (Chicago, 2008). Gross’s articles have been published in the American Sociological ReviewAnnual Review of SociologyTheory & Society, and other leading journals of the field. From 2009-2015 he edited Sociological Theory, the theory journal of the American Sociological Association. Gross is currently working on pragmatist philosophy and the social sciences; on a biography of Seymour Martin Lipset, the mid-20th century sociologist and political scientist; on a study of politics and views of science; and on a host of other topics. He joined the Colby faculty in 2015 as chair of the Department of Sociology, and he taught previously at Princeton, the University of British Columbia, Harvard, and the University of Southern California.
