Terra Nova is the story of Captain Scott’s expedition to the South Pole in the winter of 1911–12. Five Englishmen and five Norwegians raced each other to the bottom of the Earth. Only the Norwegians returned. The discovery that Amundsen has preceded him, the bravery and suffering of his team, the self–sacrifice of Captain Oates, and the final tragedy, are recounted in a mixture of fantasy and realism that underlines both the human and the epic qualities of the adventure. In this unique production, Wellesley College will explore this very male experience.
Pay what you can on Wednesday, 4/5 and Thursday, 4/6.
General admission $15
$10 for seniors, students, and Wellesley faculty and staff.
Free for Wellesley, Olin, and Babson students with ID.

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 - 12:30pmCollins Cinema
Since 2001, students and faculty from the sciences and the humanities at Wellesley College have travelled to Lake Baikal, Siberia, where they have worked together to conduct original scientific research and exchange ideas across multiple cultures. In this lecture by Marianne Moore, some of the scientific and cultural discoveries that created meaningful change for both Russians and Americans will be presented, emphasizing the power and unexpected benefits that can come from uniting the sciences with the humanities.
Moore, Frost Professor in Environmental Science and professor of biological sciences, has conducted research focusing on biodiversity and environmental change in Lake Baikal for more than 15 years.
Generously supported by the President’s Office.

Worldwide Tribe: Jaz O'Hara
Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 12:00pmMargaret Clapp Library Lecture Room
Jaz O'Hara is the founder of The Worldwide Tribe, a movement of people who care about the world and the people we share it with.
The Worldwide Tribe is an organisation and online community working to raise awareness about the refugee crisis, as well as supporting those caught up in it. The Worldwide Tribe began after a post Jaz wrote about her first trip to the Calais Jungle Refugee Camp (in July 2015) went viral. Since then, Jaz has worked tirelessly in camps across Europe and the Middle East to tell the stories that otherwise go unheard.
The Worldwide Tribe has run many projects on the ground, from installing wifi in camps in France and Greece, to organising a football tournament in Dunkirk, funding a fire truck in Calais, run art projects in Za'atari camp in Jordan, supported a Search and rescue in the Med, coordinated food, clothing, shelter and much much more. Jaz and her team are dedicated to challenging the fear-based narrative of much of today's media and society"
