first_imgWhile the water protectors at the Oceti Sakowain Camp received a big win earlier this week with the US Army Corps of Engineers announcing it would look for an alternative route for the Dakota Access Pipeline, protesters still have plans to remain in the encampment to ensure that construction does not occur.

Chinese scholars celebrate Gates

first_imgSpecialists in African-American and American literature from across China gathered at the Beijing Foreign Studies University to honor Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.The event, “The China National Conference on African American Literary Studies and the Releasing of H.L. Gates Jr.’s Works in Chinese Translation,” brought together more than 50 professors and graduate students who presented seminar papers about Gates’ work and the African-American literary canon. The Dec. 11-12 event also marked Gates’ 60th birthday.Gates, the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, is director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard. Gates co-edited the first four volumes of “The Image of the Black in Western Art,” just published by the Harvard University Press. His newest book, “Black in Latin America,” will be published in the spring. He was one of only two academics named to Ebony Magazine’s Power 100 list for 2010.Literary scholars in China have shown increasing interest in African-American literature over the past several years. Two more of Gates’ books are being translated for publication in China next year.Wang Yuanlu, who is working on a translation of Gates’ “Tradition and the Black Atlantic,” called Gates “a beacon of light on a challenging course. Chinese scholars believe that the publication of his two books will help them better navigate the stormy waters of African-American literary studies.”“This was truly one of the greatest honors of my career, and I am deeply grateful to my colleagues at the Beijing Foreign Studies University both for the conference in my honor and for overseeing the publication of my work into Chinese,” said Gates.last_img read more

The gates that frame Harvard Yard

first_img 17The Class of 1889 Gate, South. Locked for the night, lights shine in the arched tunnel that crosses Wigglesworth. The 25 gates in Harvard Yard manage a rare feat: They are pragmatic and artistic at the same time.When locked, the gates provide security and intimacy. But then there is the beauty: a bold H nestled into the iron; metal leaves entangled in iron flowers; black highlighted with gold; long-ago dates molded into bars. Sinuous vines and ivies often cling to the gates, moving with the wind.The dates in each gate reflect their history, as recounted by Blair Kamin N.F. ’13 in his recent book “Gates of Harvard Yard” (Princeton Architectural Press). In 1889, Samuel Johnston gave the funds to build the first gate to open into the Yard, but members of other classes soon followed his example to build the entryways, many of them illustrated here, that now preserve their memory. 7Morgan Gate (Class of 1877), South. Architects McKim, Mead & White planned this gate to serve as a portal at the end of a grand axis connecting the Yard to the Charles River. The project was never developed, and the majestic gate now serves as an entrance to Widener Library. 3The Class of 1889 Gate, South, is crowned by the arched tunnel that crosses Wigglesworth Hall. This gate was planned as a twin to the Dexter Gate, but the latter’s slight differences gave it more fame. 10Bacon Gate (Class of 1880), South. Vines cling to the limestone of Bacon Gate, giving it a mysterious, decadent aspect. This gate conceals one of Harvard’s hidden secrets: the beauty of Dudley Garden, accessible from inside the Yard. 12The Class of 1874 Gate, Northwest, casts a shadow on the brick wall of Lionel Hall. The ironwork masterfully joins C- and S-shaped scrollwork. 1Bradstreet Gate, North, honors the presence of women on campus. It was dedicated to Anne Dudley Bradstreet, the first published poet of the American colonies, in 1997, the 25th anniversary of women living in the Yard’s dormitories. The picture shows a detail on one of the wrought-iron side columns. 2The Class of 1875 Gate, Southwest, faces the hustle and bustle of Harvard Square. It welcomes passersby to find relief in the Yard’s quiet atmosphere. 8The Class of 1888 Gate, North. Framing the rose windows on Memorial Hall, this gate stands next to the Class of 1887 gate. Together, they comprise the only double gate of the Yard. 9Fire Station Gate, North. Partly covered by rust, the gate’s details testify to its main use as a service entrance for fire trucks and garbage collection. The Fire Station at 491 Broadway stands across it. 4McKean Gate (Porcellian Club), South, takes its nickname from one of Harvard’s oldest final clubs. The club won its name when Joseph McKean brought a roast pig to a meeting. 16The Class of 1885 Gate, East, frames the entrance to the Harvard Art Museums on Quincy Street. Its original name is now almost forgotten, and it is widely referred to as “Sever Gate.” 5Dexter Gate (Class of 1890), South. Reflected in the windows of the Harvard Book Store, Dexter Gate is widely known for the inscription on its crest: “Enter to grow in wisdom.” On the reverse side, another inscription reads “Depart to Serve Better Thy Country and Thy Kind.” 6The Class of 1887 Gate, North. The 87 of the wrought-iron gate frames students walking by Annenberg Hall. 14North Gates fence. Sunset turns the wrought iron into gold. 13The Class of 1870 Gate, Northwest. The gate’s ornaments embrace the design of the back door of Holden Hall. The gate, always locked, keeps preserved and inaccessible the beauty of the “secret garden” behind the hall. 11Johnston Gate, Northwest. Silhouetted against the sky, the gate’s elegant decorations create the illusion of brushes of black tempera. The oldest gate in the Yard, Johnston serves as the main entrance, and leads directly to the John Harvard Statue. The wrought-iron gate was erected in 1889 when alumnus Samuel Johnston donated funds to replace the wooden fence that had stood on the spot. 15The Class of 1881 Gate, North. In front of Phillips Brooks House, the portal invites students to “come within its gates, in order that in whole-hearted service to the truth, they may enter into life and so be free.” 18Loeb House Gate, East, opens onto the path to the residence and site that for many years housed Harvard presidents. Today, it is the home of Harvard’s Governing Boards and their administrative offices.last_img read more

Parlor to close for floor repairs

first_imgTags: Haggar Student Center, SMC Welsh Parlor, located in the Haggar College Center at Saint Mary’s and more commonly referred to as Haggar Parlor, will be out of commission for an estimated nine to 10 weeks due to floor damage, according to Gwen O’Brien, director of media relations at Saint Mary’s.“On Jan. 24, 2014, a steam coil in a radiator cracked, and water from the unit flooded the floor,” O’Brien said.The damage done is not only extensive, but also irreversible, she said. The repairs, which include replacing the floor with white oak wood, will cost $35,000, and Saint Mary’s hopes to have the parlor ready for commencement, according to O’Brien.The Haggar College Center, which was dedicated in 1942, originally housed the Alumnae Centennial Library, O’Brien said. Saint Mary’s later converted the space into a student center.According to O’Brien, Haggar parlor is frequently used for meetings, panel discussions and dinners.Haggar Parlor is a popular venue for events, which now will have to change locations, O’Brien said. One event that has been affected by the closure of the space is the 2014 “Chimes Literary and Arts Journal” release reading.Kathryn Haemmerle, an editor of the journal, said the parlor’s closure is disappointing, given the parlor’s ideal environment for the release reading.“We are partial to Haggar Parlor because it’s very suitable to readings,” Haemmerle said. “It has light and space, with an area near the piano for a contributor to stand and read their work.”Nevertheless, O’Brien said there are other venues available for hosting campus events, and the new floor will make up for the temporary loss of the parlor’s availability.“The tradeoff for losing the space for a while is that a brand new white oak floor will be installed, which will update the room and make it even more majestic than it already was,” O’Brien said.If the parlor is not completed before commencement, related events may have to be moved elsewhere, O’Brien said.last_img read more
