As Bates marks Schaeffer Theatre's 50th, March plays look at French culture, U.S. sexual politics

March is a month for theater classics at Bates College. Elizabeth Castellano, a Bates junior from New Suffolk, N.Y., directs the college’s production of David Mamet’s Oleanna, a highly charged story of sexual politics in the halls of academe. Meanwhile, the theater department honors French culture and marks the 50th anniversary of its mainstage venue, Schaeffer Theatre, with a production of Molière’s 1672 satire The Learned Ladies.

Campus Construction Update: Feb. 18, 2011

Captivated by the details of steel, drywall and bricks, as we often are, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that the renovation of Hedge and Roger Williams halls is not actually the most important activity involving these buildings. What really matters, of course, is what people do in a building during those long intervals between construction projects.

Campus Construction Update: Feb. 4, 2011

Leaving a foot of new snow atop the foot Lewiston already had on the ground, this week’s snowfall fell somewhat short of the apocalypse predicted by the media. Classes were held as usual, though. And alongside the students heading through the flakes were the workers performing the renovation of Hedge and Roger Williams halls.

Campus Construction Update: Jan. 21, 2011

Why does an open piece of land seem so much smaller than the building occupying the same footprint? How did New Commons fit on that little scrap of ground next to the football field? Shouldn’t space that’s cut up by walls and ceilings seem smaller than an open lot, rather than larger? Such thoughts appeared on the open lot of our consciousness as we stood in the new pavilion-like addition to Roger Williams Hall. Surrounded by contractors’ giant tool boxes and stacks of building materials, we took in the views, to north and south, defined by the new entrances.
