Today@Earlham

Watch for NSSE

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), an important tool for institutional assessment, is available to first-year and senior students beginning in February. Watch for upcoming announcements for more details, including information about the cash drawing for students who complete the survey. For more information, contact the Institutional Research and Assessment Office at <albripo@earlham.edu>.


Women's Forum

The Womyn's Center will be hosting a student and faculty discussion at Noon on Friday, November 21, on the politics of female spaces. This will be an informal setting to examine marginalization in society and within women’s spaces, focusing on problems that arise regarding race and ethnicity. The forum is welcome to all women regardless of assigned gender at birth. The Center is located on the fourth floor of Carpenter Hall. Snacks and drinks will be provided. For more information, contact Corey Lunden at <cjlunden12@gmail.com>, Erika Verdine at <erverdi12@earlham.edu> or Cherrah Barclay at <csbarcl13@earlham.edu>.


Faculty Forum

The next Faculty Forum will be held at 4:00 p.m., on Friday, November 21, in Landrum Bolling Center - Room 211. Assistant Professor of Arabic Kelly Tuttle will speak on "Entertain Me: Combating Reader Boredom in Pre-Modern Arabic Commentary.” Charles Pellat, a well-known scholar of Arabic literature, once remarked that all Arabic literature is boring. This sweeping and rather sad claim about his chosen field is not, however, the first or only mention we have of a scholar of Arabic literature worrying that readers become bored while reading Arabic texts. Tuttle's talk will focus specifically on one of Salah al-Din al-Safadi's commentaries in which he tries out a method of boredom reduction. She then will consider the text of al-Safadi (d. 1363) in light of more modern theories about boredom to consider other ways his readership might have engaged with the text. Snacks will be provided.
