Bardian - Winter 2018

Page 1


Dear Bard Alumni/ae, Family, and Friends: Welcome to the winter issue of the Bardian! I was particularly interested to read about the long association of Bard alumni/ae with the Worker Justice Center of New York in Kingston. Bardians making an impact—again (for more, check out #bardimpacts). And George Rose ’63 makes the case that a liberal arts education is “incomplete without an understanding of the thought processes that underpin science.” The alumni/ae profiles in this issue represent a broad spectrum of Bardian engagement, including the incredible Liita-Iyaloo Cairney BA/MS ’08 and the company she formed to address the needs of young women, the inspiring educator Alhassan Susso MAT ’12, and the digital technology business Imran Aftab ’95 created in his home country of Pakistan. Whatever Bardians are doing with their lives, I am always struck by the consistent threads of philanthropy, Brandon Weber ’97 activism, social justice, and empowerment. photo Kye Ehrlich ’13 Speaking of philanthropy, Bard had an exciting close to the fiscal year in June. More Bardians than ever made a gift to the College. We had 1,689 alumni/ae donors in the year ending June 30, 2018, which is up more than 13 percent from the previous year. Thank you to everyone who participated, and a special thank you to the Bard College Alumni/ae Association Board of Governors for their extensive peer-to-peer outreach. It worked! As great as that increase was, we need more Bardians to get involved. A recent Forbes article showed that three-year giving rates at Oberlin, Reed, and Vassar were almost double the Bard alumni/ae giving rate. We can get there, too, so I hope you will show your Bard pride (and competitive spirit) and make a donation this coming year. I wish you and your families a happy holiday season, and I would like to personally thank the staff of the Office of Development and Alumni/ae Affairs for all they do to support and enrich our unique community. As always, if you have any questions or comments please feel free to email me. Thank you for your continued support. Yours, Bardian and Proud, Brandon Weber ’97, Alumni/ae Trustee; President, Board of Governors, Bard College Alumni/ae Association

bardians empowering the least powerful by Betsaida Alcantara ’05 photo by China Jorrin ’86

On a main street in the historic downtown of Kingston, New York, sandwiched between a barber shop and a trendy Mexican restaurant, sit the offices of the Worker Justice Center of New York. Entering the aging brick building, you are confronted with leaflets in Spanish and English exhorting you to “know your rights,” along with a smattering of inspirational quotes from Dolores Huerta, the famed activist who worked alongside Cesar Chavez to organize farmworkers in the 1960s. In a similarly unassuming office crammed with mismatched chairs and the remnants of past campaigns, I had one of the most significant experiences of my young life. While studying at Bard, I joined the student-led Migrant Labor Project, which focused on securing rights of farmworkers and other undocumented workers in New York. A mix of my connections with the farmworker justice movement before arriving at Bard and the day-to-day work of this student group reconnected me with the Worker Justice Center (WJC), which was formed by the merger of Farmworker Legal Services of New York and the Workers’ Rights Law Center. One summer, I was interning for WJC in Rochester when we received a call from undocumented workers who the night before had escaped horrific working conditions in a labor camp. They had slept beside railroad tracks and that morning were gathered in the parking lot of a Walmart; they found our phone number and called from a pay phone. I was one of the few people in the office at the time who spoke Spanish fluently and helped to translate between the lawyers and the workers. We were able to arrange transportation and safe housing for them. We brought them to the office and I was proud to help translate the first conversations we had with them about their ordeal. I recall the workers telling us that their employer used guard dogs to intimidate them and ensure they didn’t escape. I also translated the details of their unsafe and unhealthy living conditions. It was a terrifying glimpse into what modern-day slavery looks like. WJC filed the first major human trafficking case in New York in 2002, alleging that a group of Mexican immigrants was lured into debt bondage and threatened with harm if they tried to escape. In 2013, a historic settlement was finalized. But long before that, our efforts proved to me that a small organization can have a huge impact. The Hudson Valley, an agricultural mecca for centuries, is known for its scenic vistas and pastoral small farms. Less obvious are the thousands of people with limited rights laboring in the region to keep this farming culture active. Since the 1930s, farmworker labor rights have been largely determined by state, not federal, regulation, unlike most labor protections. For example, farmworkers in New York State did not have the right to the federal minimum wage or even water or sanitation in the fields until recently. And to this day, they do not have the right to form a union to collectively bargain for better pay, improved working conditions, or a day of rest. WJC is one of the few groups that serves undocumented farmworkers and day laborers in the region. Its services are free, and the organization survives on funding from a combination of individual donors, foundations, and state and federal government grants. The mission of WJC is to combine the litigation power of its attorneys

and the organizing power of its coordinators to tackle the myriad issues faced by undocumented workers. This combination of litigation and organizing is what makes WJC unique. I am not the only Bard alum to be drawn to WJC. Today, the organization boasts three Bard graduates working there full time: Emma Kreyche ’02, Diana Saguilan ’06, and Julieth Nuñez ’14. Saguilan (formerly Vazquez) is part of the organization’s senior staff. On a cloudy and cool Friday afternoon before Labor Day, we met up at the Kingston WJC office. Saguilan moved furniture around to make room for new staffers who would soon be arriving; the place is expanding so much that they’re improvising in the already crammed space. She walked past a sign encouraging visitors to listen to Mariel Fiori ’05’s La Voz radio program. The magazine La Voz began on Bard campus in 2004 and now serves the Spanish-speaking community of the Hudson Valley. I met Saguilan through the Rural and Migrant Ministry’s Youth Arts Group, which recruits high school students with strong leadership potential in the greater Hudson Valley. I encouraged her to apply to Bard College and she visited me on campus during my first year. She fell in love with the school as a place where she could continue her interest in advocacy. Saguilan was already politically active before arriving at the College, and Bard’s student-run organizations and faculty projects gave her an outlet for that work. “Bard allowed me to stay active,” Saguilan says now. Saguilan’s story mirrors my own experience at Bard, and is similar to stories I heard over and over again from the Bardians at WJC. “Bard was certainly an important place for me in terms of my coming of age politically,” says Kreyche, who is WJC’s organizing and advocacy coordinator. “I was involved in various student groups, but in particular with student activism around the global justice movement. One of the slogans of the global justice movement is to think globally and act locally. I really took that to heart.” For her part, Nuñez says, “Bard gave me the freedom to express myself and take action through TLS [Bard’s Trustee Leader Scholar Program, a leadership development initiative] and volunteering. In addition, I had the opportunity to work at La Voz, from my very first year until my very last day as a student, which helped me learn about communities outside of Bard.” The spirit of activism nurtured at Bard makes for a great fit at WJC, which takes a holistic approach to workers’ and immigrants’ rights. “We have a three-part mission that focuses on legal work as well as community empowerment and institutional change,” explains Kreyche. This integrated approach offers participants many ways to contribute to the organization. Kreyche is the founder of Bard’s Migrant Labor Project, which emerged out of a tutorial organized by a small group of students. “It really focused on educating the community around issues affecting farmworkers in the region and then engaging students around advocacy,” says Kreyche. While we were involved with the project, Saguilan and I saw firsthand how our fellow students were organizing and engaging with other communities in the region.

“All of these experiences at Bard shaped my career path, and the direct experience of creating the Migrant Labor Project certainly did,” says Kreyche. Saguilan’s on-campus experiences also led her toward a future at WJC. During her sophomore year, as part of a class with Professor of Spanish Melanie Nicholson, she taught English to adult farmworkers in Tivoli. “This was a constant reminder of where I came from, how I grew up, and some of the challenges that the farmworker community was facing,” she says. “It was a way to reconnect with my community and understand that I could equip myself, start to understand the background and history of the struggle of immigrants and lowwage workers in this country.” “Bard cultivates a certain kind of social awareness, not just in course work,” says Kreyche. “I definitely felt there was a very rich culture of student activism that allowed me a lot of—not just freedom but encouragement to pursue different avenues of social justice work. And I think I developed a lot of skills outside the classroom through activism that I have since applied in my professional work.” These sentiments resonate greatly with me. I, too, came to Bard with a desire to make a difference. In fact, I was attracted to Bard because it was ranked as one of the most politically active colleges in the country. Activism runs in my family: my father was one of the founders of the first New York State–wide entity to organize migrant farmworkers (see Fall 2015 Bardian). Saguilan, who is director of operations and finance for WJC, is very connected to the work she’s doing, not simply from the perspective of someone who is dedicated to public service but also as someone who has been personally affected by the immigration system. She was an undocumented immigrant but was able to adjust her status before heading to college, something that she told me was a big deal because she was then eligible for grants and scholarships. Saguilan was awarded Bard’s First Generation Scholarship, given to students who have high academic achievement and are the first in their family to attend college. Later on, however, her experiences with the U.S. immigration system were less positive. In 2009, her husband was detained by ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) during a raid of his workplace. He spent three months in a detention center while Saguilan and their 1-year-old son were at home. This is the type of trauma that workers who come to WJC for help are all too familiar with; Saguilan’s personal experience, she says, gives her even more reason to keep working hard to support this community. In addition to the current staff and me, many Bard students have passed through WJC as former employees, interns, or fellows. The organization has become a statewide organization. It has gone from a staff of about five people in the Kingston area when I was hired to more than 20 staff members spread out among Rochester, Kingston, and Westchester County, meaning there are more opportunities to contribute than ever. Peter Rosenblum, a Bard professor, sits on the organization’s board, and Saguilan envisions a day when students will receive academic credit for their work with WJC.

For now, work continues apace at the old brick building in Kingston. Staff continue to help laborers fight for back wages, while also creating a communal space for workshops and leadership development. Every day, the news seems to bring more challenges for the group to address: what is happening with DACA, the minimum wage, hate crimes, or undocumented children in the school system? There are no easy answers, but there is plenty to be done. In many ways, a through line connects my work at WJC and my work in the U.S. Senate, Obama administration, Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, and now at a global anti-hate organization. I’ve learned that change must happen using a comprehensive approach: through the courts, through political campaigning, through grassroots organizing, and through all the branches of government, at the local, state, and federal level. WJC represents thousands of people who are the least powerful in our society. These are individuals who are undocumented, who are low-wage workers, who don’t speak the language, and are often taken advantage of in the workplace because of their immigration status. Absent a federal legislative solution on immigration, the work of WJC becomes even more important. I imagine the staff at WJC as firefighters, trying to contain the flames of injustice and fear that have been fanned in our current toxic political environment. My hope for WJC is that it continues to grow and that its influence spreads. Through the support of their community, including Bard, WJC will be able to wage the good fight.

bard’s migrant labor project fertile ground for student activists The seeds for Bard’s Migrant Labor Project (MLP) were sown in 2000, when Maggie Von Vogt ’02 organized a labor teach-in. Tom Keenan, director of Bard’s Human Rights Project, suggested to Von Vogt that she invite Margaret Gray, then a graduate student who was working at the nonprofit World Hunger Year, to speak. “After I spoke,” Gray recalls, “I said, ‘If anyone wants to do something—organize something—let me know.’” In true Bard fashion, they did want to do something, and they did let Gray know. The Justice for Farmworkers Campaign was advocating for agricultural laborers to have the same rights as every other New York State worker, and Gray helped students get involved. Some 60 of them joined a march on Albany for two days, and a smaller group stayed in the capital and joined in lobbying efforts. From those activist roots, and with the support of Bard’s Trustee Leader Scholar (TLS) Program, grew several remarkable social justice projects, starting with MLP. Von Vogt, who was a community media trainer in El Salvador from 2008 to 2017 and now runs an adult school in Northern California that serves farmworkers, says that working with Gray and the Migrant Labor Project taught her that “sometimes you just do things.” She credits Gray with providing a theoretical and study framework. “She helped us make contacts. We were able to start initiatives and contribute to building some supportive relationships between Bard students—and the institution itself—and migrant workers.” Not long after the teach-in, Keenan suggested to Gray that she might improve her odds of getting a dissertation grant if students were involved in the research. “With the Human Rights Project as my institutional backer,” Gray says, “I applied for a grant from the 21st Century ILGWU Heritage Fund and got $30,000.” The grant allowed her to hire two students, Betsaida Alcantara ’05 and Diana Vazquez (now Saguilan) ’06, who were native Spanish speakers. “I took them with me on my initial interview visits, then I hired more students for the follow-ups.” The interviews took place from 2002 to 2003 and led, in 2007, to release of the “Hudson Valley Farmworker Report: Understanding the Needs and Aspirations of a Voiceless Population,” which Emma Kreyche ’02 helped Gray write. Gray’s award-winning Labor and the Locavore: The Making of a Comprehensive Food Ethic, published in 2013, came out of that report. Alcantara, Saguilan, and Kreyche all ended up at the Worker Justice Center, and Kreyche and Saguilan are still there. One of the longest-lived TLS projects, the Red Hook English as a Second Language (ESL) Center, was started in 2002 by Kate GrimFeinberg ’04 (now Robins), who was involved with MLP at the time. Though originally conceived to address migrant workers’ need to learn English so they could advocate for themselves and integrate more readily into the community, the center now serves anyone in the community who is limited by lack of English proficiency (it

remains a student-led organization). Robins, who went on to earn a PhD in cultural anthropology, has conducted research on learning, culture, language, and child rearing in bilingual communities and led sustainable development projects in community-based education in South America and the United States. She now runs, with her husband, the dance and martial arts school Find Your Center, in Pasco, Washington, whose motto is “Strengthening minds, bodies, and communities through ballet and capoeira.” Associated Press South Asia correspondent Emily Schmall ’05 volunteered at the Red Hook ESL Center as an undergraduate. In 2003, she and Mariel Fiori ’05 began working, with TLS support, on a publication that is now the award-winning La Voz, an independent Spanish language magazine that serves the 140,000 Latinos living in the Hudson Valley and Catskill regions. Many other Bard College students who were involved in MLP worked on migrant labor issues outside the Hudson Valley as well. Owen Thompson ’06, for example, interned with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers in Florida, whose Anti-Slavery Program uncovered, investigated, and assisted in the prosecution of numerous multistate, multiworker farm slavery operations across the southeastern United States. Thompson got involved with MLP in spring 2003, took over its leadership in fall 2004, and worked to raise awareness of farmworker issues by, among other things, running teach-ins on “modern-day slavery” as part of a Taco Bell boycott, organizing trips to bring groups of students to migrant labor camps, and arranging for representatives of workers’ groups from Mexico to come to Annandale to share their stories. Jon Leslie ’08, a literature major, was inspired in 2005 by classmates involved with MLP to volunteer at the Red Hook ESL Center. Before long he found himself tasked with creating an after-school program for elementary school ESL students in Rhinebeck. That process brought Leslie even closer to the immigrant community, which in turn sparked a curiosity that propelled him, the summer after his sophomore year, to travel to Guatemala to learn more about why “one might be led to take the risks required by immigration into an oftentimes unwelcoming country.” During his time there, Leslie met with a variety of nongovernmental organisations that were working, he says, to “stem the chaotic tide of violence by spreading awareness artistically, legally, or politically.” He also worked for a month or so with the Chico Mendes Project “organizing an environmental school for local Mayan youth that helped them to work in their communities while gaining experience toward advanced education.” His time there, he later wrote, “instilled in me a great deal of hope, as I was able to picture very easily what a healthier future Guatemala (and, a fortiori, Latin America or North America more generally) might look like.” The list of involved Bardians includes many others. Some have made social justice their life’s work; some use their skills in more mainstream fields. For all of them, though, the process of engaging in projects like these, making the massive commitment such projects require, and coping with the inevitable ups and downs that come with heartfelt effort, helped make them the engaged citizens they are. bardians empowering the least powerul 5

dean of the college

6 dean of the college

When I first set foot in Ludlow more than two decades ago, I was there to be interviewed by Bard’s magisterial, long-serving dean of the College, Stuart Levine. As I was leaving, I gazed past Dean Levine at his desk and out a massive window overlooking College Walk, drawn to the view across the top of Annandale’s main campus. Like Jane Austen’s Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice, who realizes upon touring Pemberley that she has “never seen a place for which nature had done more, or where natural beauty had been so little counteracted by an awkward taste,” I was struck then and remain astonished by how arrestingly beautiful Bard can be. Following three formidable former occupants of this office— Levine, Michèle Dominy, and, most recently, Rebecca Thomas—I feel the continuity of time with respect and affection as I make my way each morning to the second floor of Ludlow. So, too, I relish the sense of discovery and restless curiosity that makes Bardians wear the mantle of tradition lightly. Annandale is not sentimental about its past; our history sustains us most powerfully every time we take the opportunity to imagine this place anew through practices of self-reflection and critical inquiry. Since my arrival in the 1990s, I have witnessed an unprecedented growth and flourishing of the College under President Leon Botstein’s leadership. Our campus community has become larger and more diverse; the built environment has expanded and become a good deal grander, offering inspiration and support for learning across the disciplines; and the faculty has distinguished itself not only here, in its signature approach to undergraduate instruction, but also in the wider world through accomplishments in the arts, sciences, and humanities. Bard’s 21st-century mission has built on the College’s historic strengths and values—progressive education, internationalism, interdisciplinary inquiry, a commitment to the common good— even as it embraces future challenges, championing social justice and civic engagement across its ever-expanding network. I come to my role as chief academic officer not from the perspective of a scientist or social analyst (as my predecessors did) but as an unabashed advocate for the central significance of the arts and humanities in higher education today. One of the most radical propositions at the heart of Bard’s common core curriculum is the idea that liberal learning and the canon (or rather the concept of “canon” as a process of delineating such concepts, forever under construction and interrogation by faculty and students alike) belong to all those who dare to pick up a book and read. The act of reading cannot be taken for granted: for all of us, attention has become more diffuse, attenuated, divided. Reevaluating the affective dimensions of deep attention (the preferred mode of learning in college) feels increasingly urgent as attention becomes the scarcest commodity. For the past year I have participated with colleagues from computer science, composition studies, and languages and literature in a working group we call the Bard Reading Initiative (BRI). As science, literature, and technology scholar N. Katherine Hayles pointed out in conversation with us last fall, higher education has a duty to highlight for students critical gaps between reading for

information and reading for knowledge. BRI aims to foster and promote a new culture of reading on campus, not just in and “for class” but as integral to residence within this distinctive learning community. Reading practices in college have the unique potential to bridge the gap between private/personal and public/social spaces, reminding us, as John Dewey wrote, “that education . . . is a process of living and not a preparation for future living.” Following two stints as codirector of First-Year Seminar (FYSEM), I often like to point out to Annandale students in the course that they are sharing the struggles and triumphs of a “first reading” of Plato or Kant, DuBois or Morrison with fellow FYSEM students in maximum security prisons; early college programs across the United States; and microcolleges in Brooklyn, New York, and Holyoke, Massachusetts; not to mention on campuses in Berlin, East Jerusalem, Bishkek, and St. Petersburg. In my work as dean, I look forward to deepening and extending general education at the College by supporting, for instance, Big Ideas courses that allow students to engage across disciplines with topics and themes that combine different distribution areas and varied modes of learning. Because of individual particularities and differences from one another, FirstYear Seminar students and faculty confront difficult texts with everevolving questions that both set us at odds and bind us together. Increasingly, we have come to expect students to bring their distinctive experiences into the seminar room as we read together. Of course, this diversity raises the stakes for dialogue and debate: much of what we teach at Bard is how to disagree without shutting down the possibility of meaningful exchange. With this aim, one of my top priorities is to support inclusive pedagogy initiatives through the Center for Faculty and Curricular Development. Faculty governance, through the Senate and its component committees, has been striving to address inclusive excellence in terms of curricular and program review, planning and appointments, and evaluation of faculty at the College. I view it as my duty to further this work in partnership with my colleagues. Based on my observation of a dean’s life over the years, I know that I can expect to be more than fully occupied with the daily business of life in Ludlow. Even so, I will stubbornly cling to my love of teaching this fall as I lead, with Assistant Dean of Civic Engagement Camilia Jones, a two-credit Engaged Liberal Arts and Sciences course, “Women and Leadership.” We are excited to offer this class for a third consecutive fall semester, working with 30 first-year students and Upper College course fellows to recognize and develop their own capacity as leaders. Deirdre d’Albertis earned her BA at Barnard College and her MA and PhD at Harvard University. Professor of English at Bard College and the author of Dissembling Fictions: Elizabeth Gaskell and the Victorian Social Text, she has also written on a wide range of Victorian women writers from Emily Brontë, Margaret Oliphant, George Eliot, and Charlotte Brontë to such lesser-known figures as Eliza Lynn Linton, Hannah Cullwick, and Mary Howitt.

Michael Lawrence ’65 is a prolific multidisciplinary artist. He paints, sculpts, writes, and lives on the idyllic island of Hydra in Greece, and his work, which has been shown in dozens of galleries around the world, is in numerous important collections. Yet he says he has “merely scratched the surface of my creative labors.” The portfolio that follows is just a sampling of the artistic feast he has created. Still, in it one can see the joy and pleasure of a life well lived. He was born in Los Angeles, and his family moved to Italy when his father, the actor Marc Lawrence, was hired by the film production company formed by Carlo Ponti and Dino De Laurentiis. When Michael was 13 and in London with his parents for the summer, he painted several watercolors, including some street scenes. “I sold one of those watercolors to the knighted actor Stanley Baker, who was a friend of my father’s from Rome,” recalls Lawrence. “They were in Helen of Troy together. On the set, Stanley recited Hamlet’s ‘To be, or not to be’ soliloquy for me. He spoke in a quiet manner, at a slow pace—it set a standard for me! A seemingly small experience can change everything.” Soon the Lawrences returned to the United States, and Michael went to Beverly Hills High School. From there he came to Bard, where he continued to surround himself with the kind of engaged—and engaging—people he grew up around. “Many of my art projects are autobiographical,” Lawrence explained recently. “They reflect the gifts I have gathered on my journey. One of the greatest gifts was a humanism that flows from the heart of the Bard experience. And what an experience it was!” Central to that experience were his remarkable artist classmates, many of whom he recalls with great admiration. “Fierce Peter Barney (’63), who painted wild seascapes à la Albert Pinkham Ryder; Bill Tinker (’63), who painted Pop images of his lady sipping tea—fantastic, like Arthur Tress’s (’62) Fauvist landcsapes! I painted the dance of the pine trees that line the road to Blithewood with hefty jars of paint I had discovered at Netti’s art store in the city. Alan Kronzek (’63), Bebe Wein (’65), Karen Struble (’65), Bruce Cohen Curtis (’63), Jack Blum (’62), Fortune Ryan (’63), Charles Hollander (’65), and Blythe Danner (’65). They are all part of the wonderful mix of personalities who have come back to delight me, appearing as they do in my watercolors and paintings. The actors in my troupe who dance, sing, and philosophize about it all.” Lawrence also made sculptures at Bard, including one of Robert Kelly, now Asher B. Edelman Professor of Literature, with whom Lawrence took a poetry class. “Kelly had given us ABC of Reading, a book by Ezra Pound in which he talks about how snow or wind can be represented by a different calligraphic drawing depending on the specific character of the noun. It seemed a keen principle for concrete poems or clear thinking,” says Lawrence. “The portrait I did of Robert excited me. It was cubist. I was thinking of the sculpture that Henri Gaudier-Brzeska made of Pound.” More than half a century later, Kelly remembers the piece well. “His sculpture pleased everybody, and it pleased me mightily when he offered to do that portrait bust of me,” says Kelly. “It was an aston-

ishing work for a young artist. It has the verve of youth but a solidity that reminded me of Gaudier-Brzeska and the Vorticists—a few visitors mistook it for such. Michael took the form of my head and turned it into its proper self; its curves grew stronger, an upswept eyebrow became a wave upwelling.” Nevertheless, Lawrence was torn: should he pursue sculpture or put his energies elsewhere? He had many interests and many talents. Which path to take? These questions led him to seek out cubist sculptor Jacques Lipchitz, who was living and working in Hastings-onHudson, New York. “I went to see him,” says Lawrence, “because I felt insecure about being a sculptor.” Tracking down Lipchitz wasn’t particularly difficult. Lawrence stopped at the police station and asked where he might be found. “The policeman said that Jacques had graciously given him some pointers about his own sculpture and gave me directions,” says Lawrence. “I was nervous about meeting the man, but learning of his generosity gave me courage. And he was extremely generous to me as well. In Lipchitz’s subterranean studio I found a forest of sculptures that he invited me to explore while he studied my portfolio. He spent some time doing this, which surprised me. I went and looked at his work again. As he closed my book he told me I was a genuine sculptor and should keep in mind ‘that art was a true morality.’ What a fine benediction!” In 1972, Lawrence had a solo exhibition at Greer Gallery, on West 53rd Street in New York City. He showed a series of whimsical sculptures based on Lewis Carroll’s writing. “I regret that I did not think to invite Jacques,” Lawrence says. “I think it would have given him great pleasure to see my bronzes. I eventually returned to L.A. and pursued my painting interests; I always wanted to fulfill Jacques’s faith in my talent.” The sculptures in the Greer exhibition were just some of the many inspired by Lawrence’s love of literature. A few years earlier he had a solo show at Seiquer Gallery in Madrid, Spain, made up of lithographs and sculptures based on James Joyce’s Ulysses. One can see that appreciation for storytelling in Lawrence’s own books, including his impressionistic Tripping with Jim Morrison and Other Friends and the visual history of his work, My Voyage in Art. Friendships with people like Morrison and Ray Bradbury certainly influenced Lawrence’s writing, as did his studies at Bard. Kelly took over teaching the second term of Heinrich Blücher’s philosophy class, which Lawrence was in. (Lawrence cites Blücher as the professor who taught him “how to think more precisely.”) And Kelly remembers the young man of those classes. “When Michael came to Bard, he brought with him a genuine sophistication, the earnest quietness of a man who was learning to live for his work. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of hearing from Michael every now and then, from Greece usually, some paradise island I imagine full of stone and fierce shadows, ready for his capable hands.” In the United States, Michael Lawrence ( is represented by Mahmut Keskekci of RS Gallery in Palo Alto, California.

philip roth 1933–2018

annandale pastoral by Norman Manea

Norman Manea, Bard’s Francis Flournoy Professor Emeritus in European Studies and Culture and Distinguished Writer in Residence, was introduced to President Leon Botstein by the American novelist Philip Roth, who died May 22, 2018, at the age of 85. Manea came to Bard in 1989, cotaught a class with Roth in 1999, and retired in 2017. He has written more than two dozen books, which have been translated into nearly 20 languages. This tribute to his “American brother” is adapted from a piece he wrote for the Romanian weekly Observator Cultural. I last saw Philip Roth on May 18, when my wife, Cella, and I visited him in the cardiac ward of New York Presbyterian Hospital. He was very weak and pale, his voice almost inaudible. We exchanged a few words, looked at each other for a long time, shook hands, and smiled at each other. Back home, I wrote him a message recalling our long friendship and stressed my conviction that even though he was weak and suffering he could bounce back, as I had often seen him do, and that he would be equal to the struggle. Unfortunately I was wrong. As Elias Canetti warned, death is the invincible enemy of man. 14 philip roth 1933–2018

A 30-year friendship between writers (a profession of vanity, Camus calls it somewhere) is not very common. But Philip ensured our bond would extend into the afterlife, too, having written last year to Leon Botstein asking to be allocated a grave at Bard, near my own plot, so he wouldn’t be bored, as he put it, in the endless “beyond.” This is why he rests in Annandale and awaits me there. It is not, as some press reports claimed, that he wanted a Jewish cemetery. The cemetery at Bard is not Jewish; it is nondenominational and even atheists are buried there. In accordance with his instructions, the funeral that took place on May 28 was not religious. Those whom he had selected to speak were not to talk about him, but would each read fragments from his books. I read from The Dying Animal, the book he dedicated to me in 2001. But to return to happier beginnings. Knowing he’d published a collection of East European prose, Writers from the Other Europe, I wrote to him in 1987, from Berlin, where I was living on a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) grant, following my trials and tribulations in communist Romania. I proposed to him an English photo Norman Manea (left) and Philip Roth, 1992. Private collection

translation of an anthology of young writers so that Romania, too— the only Eastern European country absent from his anthology— might find its place in the world. He replied promptly and without mentioning my suggestion, asking who I was, what I wrote, what I was doing in Germany. And so our relationship began. When my grant ended, I wrote to tell him I didn’t know where I was headed, only that, for the moment, there was no going back. I didn’t want to make any final decision, preferring to await in the West the long-dreamed-of passing of our “most beloved son of the people,” as the national press used to call the dictator. My attempts to obtain another grant in Germany, or France, failed. He wrote to tell me to look him up if I happened to decide on America. When I got to Washington, D.C., he invited me to New York, to Essex House, where he was temporarily living. I suggested we put it off for a while, because I didn’t speak much English and was about to start a course in the language for new arrivals. “It doesn’t matter, we’ve got hands, we’ve got eyes, we’ll understand each other.” He wanted me to bring him something of mine translated into English, but all I had was a too-short story called “Proust’s Tea,” published in a magazine in London. “Bring whatever you have.” I crept into the big hotel, Cella accompanying me. His room was spacious. Our host was sitting on the sofa, feet on the table, smiling encouragingly. I went up to him and handed him the few pages. Silence. “Proust? Proust, you say? I’ve tried to read this writer 20 times and I’ve never got past page 15.” I froze. In Romania I had learned that if you didn’t like Proust, you were outside literature. What was left for me to say to the great American? Nothing. I couldn’t utter a word. Then another salvo: “Céline, not Proust! Céline is my Proust!” That floored me. I knew Céline was a great writer and an anti-Semite. I’d read him with interest, but I was speechless. I smiled weakly, and sat down on the sofa next to Cella, preparing myself for the next blow. But the conversation became more cordial, allowing for the inevitable language problem. At the end, he wrote some names and addresses and telephone numbers on a sheet of paper. Robert Silver, Rose Marie Morse, Mary McCarthy. “They’re my friends, they speak French, you’ll be able to talk to each other.” Stumbling out of Essex House, I told Cella I’d never call him again. “Enough, I’m done!” But that first meeting was soon put behind us. The American maestro began to call me weekly, asking how I was doing, if my English was coming along. “Have you anything translated into another language?” I had two books in German. He gave me the address of Leon Botstein, the president of Bard College, who, I understood, was a German speaker. I sent him my books and received an extraordinarily laudatory reply, comparing me to the contemporary German writers I most admired. Then I met Mary McCarthy, who taught at Bard. And she also recommended me to Botstein. In 1997, after 11 years of exile in the United States and nearly a decade at Bard, I accepted Botstein’s invitation to accompany him to Bucharest, where he was conducting two concerts at the Athenaeum. Philip supported me. Saul Bellow, who was more knowledgeable about Romania, didn’t think I should go back (“You have enough

trouble here as it is, you don’t need the old Romanian problems too”). Philip encouraged me, but made me promise to call him daily from Bucharest (!!!) and to fly back to New York if I sensed anything was wrong. My friendship with Philip deepened with time. Each of us marked the life events of the other, and we always celebrated New Year’s Eve together, in one of our homes. At the end of the public celebrations of my 75th birthday at the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York, Philip shouted: “I want something like that too! But not just two days, five!” Once he took me to Newark, where he was born, to see his childhood home and his old high school, the streets, the entire environment. He still felt close to the city. He had a relationship with the local library, and a street was to be named in his honor. As well as attending each other’s literary events, Philip and I visited each other in the hospital as time went on. In more recent years we have had a grim competition for the greater number of coronary stents: I was winning for a while, but Philip finally took the lead, with 13. Our friendship endured all kinds of differences between us, perhaps well expressed at the start in the contrasting preferences for Proust and Céline, but the connection was still strong, affectionate, and lasting. Exile rewarded me with that generous compensation. In November 2012, Philip announced that he had stopped writing. Clearly, he was tired. Writing, as well as being a profession of vanity, is one that demands great devotion and concentration, and it takes its toll over time. I always teased him by saying that his withdrawal was in fact the subject of another book that he was writing in secret. It wasn’t so. His health was finally failing. At 85, it’s too late to hope for some miracle of rejuvenation. In Exit Ghost, published in 2007, Nathan Zuckerman, the author’s alter ego, asks: “Who among your contemporaries will be the last to die? Who among your contemporaries is least likely to die? Who among your contemporaries will not only elude death but write with wit, precision, and modesty of his amused bafflement at successfully pulling off eternal life?” This avalanche of rhetorical questions might indeed be posed by the passing of Philip Roth himself. Philip Roth, the great writer, an acute observer of human existence, with all its cruel and burlesque conflicts and contradictions, has left us to face without him our explosive present and uncertain future. His forceful intelligence, his lucid and interrogative conscience, his unshaken devotion to the written page will not be forgotten; all the libraries of our tormented world will remind us of him in our fight for truth and beauty, for ardor and authenticity. Literature—America’s and the world’s—lost one of the most brilliant writers of modernity, an incomparable creative force. In the planetary crisis of our time, with so many aggressions against our spiritual environment, we will more than ever miss his intensity, his code of work and honesty, his humor and humanness. Cella and I are overwhelmed by sadness and loneliness. He was for 30 years our American brother, always nearby, caring, energetic, vital, and helpful, a unique interlocutor, irreplaceable. Our exile became deeper, darker. But we’ll be buried near each other. Let’s hope that this way we’ll be less lost in the endless desert of the afterlife. annandale pastoral 15

a science course for liberal arts majors

thinking about thinking by George Rose ’63

I was a math major at Bard, graduating in 1963 after cramming four years of college work into five-and-a-half calendar years. At the time, a fits-and-starts path toward a degree wasn’t all that unusual, but I managed to take it to extremes. I started at Harvard, switched to Bard, switched back to Harvard again, then dropped out of college and became an admitting clerk at Massachusetts General Hospital. With the dawning realization that a college degree would be a good thing, I wrote to Buzz Gummere, Bard’s director of admissions, and asked to be readmitted. That letter read something like this: Dear Mr. Gummere, I write to request readmission to Bard. Thus far, my college record has been lackluster at best. Also, my scholarship funds have been exhausted, and if readmitted I would require financial aid. Sincerely . . . I wouldn’t have accepted me, but to my surprise, Bard did, and with a loan. Further, Harold Herreman, the physics teacher, offered free room and board in his house and a paid position as physics teaching assistant. Thus enabled, I returned, finished, and incurred a lifetime debt of gratitude. Fast forward through a PhD in biophysics and an ongoing academic career to 1999, when President Leon Botstein and then Associate Dean Bob Martin asked me to serve on the Advisory Committee on Science, and to 2016, when Leon and I first discussed my idea for a novel course about science. So began my most recent reintroduction to Bard. The “old” Bard was not without its strengths, but no one then could have envisioned the Bard of today. It is a campus of intense intellectual ferment, attributable to an engaging faculty, dedicated staff, and serious students with a pride of place. Mindful of this milieu and admittedly somewhat apprehensive, I developed a class for firstand second-year liberal arts students, Thinking about Thinking: Models of Reality, which posed the question: how have we learned to make quantitative sense of the physical world? Specifically, (1) what does it mean to explain something quantitatively, and (2) how can we test the validity of that explanation? The answers are far from obvious. Indeed, most of our knowledge is initially counterintuitive. We know the earth goes around the sun, not the converse, but that’s not the way it seems. Seeing is deceiving. Our grasp of reality is rooted instead in deep thinking and testable models. Accordingly, a principal course goal was to foster greater appreciation of our extraordinary 16 a science course for liberal arts majors

intellectual capacity to explain complex phenomena by discovering successful models that can be tested with experiments. A liberal arts education in the 21st century is incomplete without an understanding of the thought processes that underpin science. A major obstacle to achieving this goal can be traced to the fracture line that divides the educated population into those who are scientifically literate and those who are not, as captured memorably by C. P. Snow in “The Two Cultures.” Snow sparked a conversation about whether one can be an “intellectual” without a grasp of fundamental scientific concepts like the second law of thermodynamics. Such a deficit is both unnecessary and profound: the second law is eminently understandable and, once internalized, it changes the way we “see” the world. With the Citizen Science initiative and course requirements in science, mathematics, and computing, Bard had already developed a curriculum intended to breach this fracture line for liberal arts majors. Within this context, Thinking about Thinking was an experiment in teaching science. Today, effective citizenship and effective governance are both rooted in science. Yet increasingly, our country is governed by science deniers, many of whom are continuously reelected by poorly informed voters. At the same time, the science-related issues that confront us could not be more urgent: global climate change, deregulation of hazardous materials, cybersecurity, the bioethics of genetic manipulation, public health policy, informed land management, assessing societal benefits of research funding . . . the list goes on. Currently, informed argument about such issues rarely succeeds in changing minds. Nor do the news media help, with insubstantial reports such as “Senator X claims climate change is a hoax but many scientists disagree.” An immediate goal of the course was therefore to overcome populist dogma by establishing scientifically engaged students, equipped to grasp and evaluate discourse on a full range of critical issues—personal, national, and global. Thinking about Thinking was also motivated by a deeper issue. “All, by nature, desire to know,” but how do we “know?” We are still learning how to learn about the universe. The ultimate goal of scientific understanding is to explain complex phenomena with a compact description, a model, preferably one in which the description has physical meaning. For example, Tycho Brahe’s copious observations of planetary motions were reduced to Kepler’s three compact laws, an empirical mathematical description that was transformed into physics by Newton. This progression, from empirical data to abstract representation to a physical model, illustrates the ongoing, accretive process by which we learn.

At the highest level, a model is sufficient to predict surprising phenomena that have yet to be observed. Mendeleev’s periodic table of the elements, organized empirically by their characteristic properties, can be reproduced and extended using quantum chemistry, an entirely abstract theory. Could there be a more profound demonstration that scientific thinking is commensurate with the material world! Our grasp of reality is always model-based at some level. At an unconscious level, vision results in multidimensional pictorial representations, not merely light packets (photons) impinging on the eye’s photoreceptors. At a conscious level, science transforms cognition in equally complex ways. According to Newtonian gravitation, any two masses in the universe are attracted to one another by an invisible force. This is a science story that rivals the most imaginative fiction. Yet it works well enough to predict an eclipse or to send an astronaut to the moon. A moment’s thought is sufficient to realize that most of our successful theories are counterintuitive, to the extent that an uneducated person would likely regard them as sheer nonsense. Appearances to the contrary, the sun does not orbit the earth, and the ostensibly solid wood of my writing desk is mostly empty space. We tend to gloss over the realization that a durable model is nevertheless just a model, not reality per se. Newtonian gravitation (1686) is typically taught as a Kantian “thing-in-itself ” (Ding an sich), an unmindful conflation of phenomenon and noumenon stemming from the remarkable effectiveness and apparent singularity of the model over the course of centuries. It’s an operational model, gravitation works that way, never mind why. Although familiarity conditions intuition, we still today regard it as a weird model, and so did Newton in the 17th century. A stunning realization that Newtonian gravitation is just a model came almost three centuries later with Einstein’s general theory of relativity (1915), a superseding model that is both more far-reaching and more intuitively satisfying. The scientific landscape was transformed in the 20th century, but most of us are only dimly aware of it. Einstein’s 1905 paper on diffusion showed that atoms are real, transforming a 2,000-year-old metaphor into quantitative science. When asked to summarize our most profound scientific insight, Nobel Prize–winning physicist Richard Feynman responded: “Everything is made of atoms.” Half a century later, the iconic double-stranded structure of DNA was elucidated by Rosalind Franklin, James Watson, and Francis Crick, demonstrating that the élan vital is a molecule, one that can now be synthesized in the laboratory. Such discoveries have shaped the worldviews of working scientists and spawned the biotech industry, but all too often they have failed to penetrate our tangled network of popular beliefs—and not simply because we are ignorant of the second law. Now we have embarked upon a century in which quantitative biology promises to be at least as transformative as the revolution in physics in the early part of the last century. Unlike the invariant quantities of physics, such as the speed of light in a vacuum or the charge on an electron, the quintessential aspect of a biological system is its self-modifying behavior. A living system does more than transform

input into output; it can transform itself. That is, the system responds to changes in input conditions not only by changing its output accordingly but also by altering its own internal program. Such behavior ranges from feedback control of individual molecules to the development of novel metabolic pathways. For example, at the molecular level an individual hemoglobin molecule can bind up to four oxygen molecules in succession, and its binding affinity increases as additional oxygen molecules are acquired (the more it eats, the hungrier it gets). At the other end of the scale, early earth lacked free oxygen, but as plant life evolved, oxygen was released into the atmosphere, a by-product of photosynthesis. Free oxygen was poison for earth’s early anaerobic life forms, but organisms evolved pathways that utilized oxygen to good advantage, giving rise to all animal life. With this background in mind, there is an urgent need to reevaluate the basic educational requirements of our colleges and universities, where the humanities are justifiably viewed as a vital part of every student’s education, but science is conventionally regarded as a specialty topic for science majors. On reflection, this is a most peculiar discrepancy. One can be steeped in Shakespeare’s plays and Beethoven’s quartets without any specialized background. Why then is science so different? Long-standing assumptions about the cognitive roots of scientific understanding seem to have resulted in the questionable conclusion that science is inaccessible to those who lack a detailed technical background. At Bard, science education in general and my recent course in particular aim to promote active participation in the process of inquiry by motivating students to question phenomena. This kind of experience differs from learning how to solve those carefully crafted problems for which the correct answers are in the back of the book. Rather, science involves wrestling with a body of data where even the relevant questions are unclear at first. In addition to promoting quantitative thinking and internalizing generic concepts, an overall aim of Thinking about Thinking was to condition expectations about the effort and timescale required for scientific advances. Once understood, a century of hard thinking by smart people can be grasped quickly. We tend to remember and teach the explanation but ignore the process leading to the explanation, regarding it as history, not science. This is a mistake. The “history” encapsulates the essence of scientific inquiry. In focusing on the second law of thermodynamics, C. P. Snow chose the right example of an intellectual fracture line. But can liberal arts majors come to internalize universally applicable concepts like entropy and thereby transform their thinking? Toward this outcome, it is imperative that students grapple with ideas quantitatively, embracing the role of active investigators, not merely passive consumers of information. The difference between reading about science and actively engaging in scientific inquiry is akin to the difference between listening to music and playing music.

a few photos of that day by James Rodewald ’82

For many of us, the friendships we make in college are among our deepest and most enduring. This may be because it is so much harder to meet new people out in the workaday world, or perhaps because college marks the first time we’re able to choose our own community—it’s natural to be more deeply committed to things you’ve chosen yourself than to things that have been chosen for you. Freed from playgroups, assigned homerooms, programmed after-school activities, and parental hovering, we find our people. This happens everywhere, of course, but as the long-suffering spouse of a former classmate said as he surveyed a dinner party that had been going on for 40 years, “Bard is thicker than water.” Even by Bard standards, though, Jamie Livingston ’79 had an extraordinarily wide-ranging and tight-knit network of close friends. This quickly becomes obvious as you scroll through the website ( or leaf through the book (Some Photos of That Day, available at that contain the 6,754 Polaroids that Livingston took and cataloged—one a day for 18 years—beginning on a beautiful spring day a few months before he graduated in 1979 and ending with his death from a brain tumor on his 41st birthday. The photos collected here, and the stories that some of Livingston’s many best friends were kind enough to share with us, represent a tiny fraction of what was, after all, just a small part of his far-too-short life. People view the photos on the web and write about what happened on that date or other ways the image resonates. Even those of us who happened to be in the exact place at the exact time the shutter button was pushed often have to build new tales to accommodate the incontrovertible fact that we were there, at that moment, with those people, many of whom seem completely unfamiliar today. Life is made up of a seemingly infinite number of such moments, and Livingston, with his amazing eye for the extraordinary wrapped in the ordinary, helps us appreciate the joy and beauty of everyday life. And reminds us not to miss it. 18 jamie livingston ’79

December 13, 1979

It’s late, close to dawn. The canvas bank bag I’m about to toss into a night deposit drop contains the day’s haul from Bleecker Street Cinema, where I was a manager the winter after graduating from Bard. My shifts were popular with my fellow alums because I never bothered taking their money. Jamie was a regular. The last task of my shift was to go directly to the bank to make the deposit. Somehow I always had a friend along and we were always waylaid. On most nights (including this one) we’d dash to make the late set at The Tin Palace, a jazz club a half block from CBGB’s—a place I couldn’t stand. The great “Black Arthur” Blythe was playing most nights we went. He had a reputation for being radical and fearless. He was always incredibly sweet to us. Freddie Freeloader, the actual Freddie who Miles named the tune for, would be swaying back and forth on the sidewalk listening to the music through the door. After the club closed, it was absolutely necessary to go directly to the Kiev for eggs. No matter the hour there was always a wait and in a pinch they’d sit you at someone else’s table. This night we landed alongside Freddie. We’d picked up the next day’s New York Times on the way over, and when Freddie saw it he freaked out. “You can’t read tomorrow’s paper today,” he said over and over in a panic. We knew it was irresponsible to carry the theater’s money around all night in a bag that was basically marked LOTS OF CASH, but Jamie and I were graduates of The People’s Film Department and had learned that reckless abandon should guide our practice. I was let go from Bleecker Street unexpectedly. They said they could point to no cause, but could see that I was always having a wildly good time at work so something must be wrong. Jeff Preiss ’79

May 3, 1980

Although I do not remember this specific moment, I do remember that gorgeous spring at Bard—the air was finally warm after the long winter, we swam in nearby ponds and wandered in fields with the backdrop of the mountains and clear blue skies. I remember the end-of-year energy, looming changes. In this photograph, I’m wearing a favorite dress I had recently bought across the river in a thrift shop in Woodstock. Jamie had graduated the previous spring but visited often and was performing in Chris Wangro’s Senior Project— Janus Circus. Jamie was between his New York City world and his Bard world, traveling back and forth often in his big, old station wagon. I would soon move to Cambridge to try to figure out who I was separate from the wonderful friends I’d met in my two years at Bard. Jamie figured prominently in that transition and, although we remained very close, we navigated a changing relationship and redefined our friendship. Over the next 20 years, we met each other’s loves, visited new homes, walked in the city streets and parks Jamie loved so much, and shared our stories. Jamie was a devoted friend to his many friends and he built an extended family comprised of them. I will always be heartbroken that he died so young. He shared his stories with us through his daily photographs and as I look at them I hear his voice, try to remember the days spent, the moments captured, and I miss him. Mindy Goldstein ’82

July 23, 1980

When I arrived at Bard in 1975, sophisticated city kids like Jamie Livingston dazzled me. I knew only two things: I was straining against the yoke of my provincial Roman Catholic upbringing, and I suspected baseball was my true salvation. What I couldn’t know was that my path would soon be lit by the flickering of avant-garde cinema. Films such as Robert Bresson’s Diary of a Country Priest helped me process my convoluted Catholicism. And Robert Frank and Alfred Leslie’s Pull My Daisy—featuring Jack Kerouac’s madcap narration with its insistent question “Is baseball holy?”—helped steer my postgraduation path toward lower Manhattan. There, as neighbors and fellow cineastes, I frequently ended up on the business end of Jamie’s Polaroid camera. Maybe it’s no surprise that someone who amassed 6,700-odd sequentially dated Polaroids would also leave behind some ephemera. Just the same, I was surprised to hear from Chris Wangro that Jamie had held onto seemingly all of the text-heavy postcards I mailed him over the years. This revelation sparked a distant memory. One evening, Jamie silently handed me a ticket stub to Game Seven of the 1971 World Series. It was a good seat: lower box, section 4, box C2, seat 3. Ours hadn’t been a gift-giving type of relationship, and in retrospect it seemed odd that he would part with such a memento. Had he remembered my gushing over Roberto Clemente when I arranged to have the highlights of the ’71 Series screened at Sottery Hall and decided that I was worthy? Or, by providing witness to the apex of the great Clemente’s career, was he finally answering Kerouac’s question? Yes, baseball is holy. Bob Barry ’79

August 9, 1980

I remained friends with Jamie Livingston, whom I miss terribly, years after his graduation, which put me in his Polaroid’s way many times. My Bard years were behind me when this was taken, but my friendship with Bob Barry (in the foreground) has endured. Bobby was part of what I considered the very coolest group at Bard in the late ’70s. It was a cohort of writers, filmmakers, and—very importantly—softball players. We took all of it seriously. After reading Bobby’s Senior Project of ironic short stories it was plain that we shared a sense of humor. From 1979 to about 1990, Sunday softball was the glue in a pretty unstuck life. Knowing him—and his brother—would lead to the most important event in the last four decades of my life. I was a bike messenger for a while, and in a Photo of the Day from February of this same year I’m picking up a package at a photographer’s studio where the “Gal Friday” (her words, not mine) was one of the most amazing people I had ever met. Smitten? No. Smote? Yes! Incredibly, a picture of her best friend was on the corkboard beside her. That best friend was Bob’s soon-to-be sister-in-law. This coincidence led to the two of us dancing at lots of parties together. When the time was right, I asked “Gal Friday” Gail to marry me. So I owe my good fortune to Bard, my bike, and my buddy Bobby. Still married since 1986. Jason Brill ’82 (right)

The layers in this image illustrate my life at and after Bard, so much of which revolves around Jamie Livingston. I’m holding a photo of Rita McBride ’82 that I had taken outside the Kline Commons coffee shop with my new lighting rig a week before. This Polaroid is taken inside the coffee shop, and there seems to be someone in the fireplace behind the photo. Is this Rita playing some bizarre visual joke? She’s become a well-known sculptor, and her work often explores and even subverts time and space. Did she discover her calling in the Kline fireplace? Four years later I’m in another Photo of the Day with Rita, who had been subletting my apartment while I was at CalArts getting my MFA with Stacy Milgrim ’79 and Nayland Blake ’82. Jamie surprised me by meeting me on my return. Five years after that, Jamie was the best man at my wedding and captured the first image of my wife, Louise, and me as a married couple. I’ve been looking at Jamie’s photos for four decades now, from the early days before the project became a project. Starting in 2004, I rephotographed them for a website that went viral and was seen by millions of people all over the world; that was the basis of the show at Bertelsmann Campus Center that opened on the 10th anniversary of Jamie’s death, which led to the comprehensive Photos of the Day book I published last year. All these years later I still find new layers and new stories hidden in Jamie’s photos. Hugh Crawford ’78

March 30, 1988

Although I’m not in this photo (in fact, I may well have been the one taking the picture), this was a very important day for me. The photo is taken in my loft, which I had moved into the previous fall, on the occasion of one of Jamie’s annual Photo of the Day parties. The parties were a secular holiday among Jamie’s world of friends and colleagues. They were great “mixers,” with the Year in Review format providing a lot to talk about. The space was still largely uncluttered with furniture, which made it ideal for him to lay out all the photos from previous years on the floor. By this time it took him several days to arrange them, and I believe he only did the complete set once more after this, on the 10th anniversary of that first photo. As it turns out, the night of this party was when I met my wife, who was a friend and coworker of Jamie’s. Jamie was a great social facilitator! I opened the door to greet her and felt a tingling sensation. Thirty years after that party I’m still tingling, happily married, painting away, and my loft/studio has been where it’s all happened. I still miss Jamie as much as ever. Steve Salzman ’79

This is the last shot with me in it, the penultimate Photo of the Day. Of all the dozens of photos I’m in, of the umpteen more snapped when I was just out of frame, this captures the moment when memory seems clearest. It was quiet, calm—a respite after weeks of chaos, psychic and otherwise. The instrument I was playing is an oud; it, like the moment, a whispery meditative thing. Jamie had one foot already planted in the great elsewhere, there were no words left to say. We were, he and I, at peace. I was playing him out, happy to make music for him, for us, not really knowing how much of it was for him or for me, not really sure he was taking it in and yet completely confident he was enjoying my being near. James liked company, loved it. Loved people, deeply. Two days later we threw the doors open to our house for a wake-ish celebration that lasted and blasted for a week. People appeared in the hundreds. The most amazing thing about it was the number of people coming from near and far who told me Jamie was their best friend, that they had just lost their closest chum. For me this is the key to who Jamie was, and maybe to why his Photos of the Day resonate as they do. Jamie lived with genuine acceptance, care, and appreciation for the beauty of the world and the people in it. You can see it in his shots: it could be a woman he was infatuated with, a beloved landmark, a shadow crossing the pavement. He saw and loved it all. Chris Wangro ’79

Bard Early College Network Grows Bard Early Colleges has announced the latest addition to its network. Washington, D.C., joins Manhattan; Queens; Newark, New Jersey; Cleveland; Baltimore; New Orleans; Harlem; and Hudson, New York, in providing students the opportunity to earn college credit and an associate degree from Bard College while earning their high school diploma. The partnership with D.C. Public Schools (DCPS) will begin operating in the 2019–20 school year with more than 150 students in a ninth grade cohort and an 11th grade cohort. Students at the tuition-free early college high school will be admitted based on an essay and an interview rather than the usual standardized test scores or grades. Bard first partnered with a public school system in 2001, and its early college network now serves more than 2,850 students. “We are confident that our model, in which the first two years of college are integrated into the fouryear high school curriculum, will succeed in this forward-looking school system,” says Bard College President Leon Botstein.

Alhassan Susso MAT ’12: Inspiring Teens

since 2012. Located in the poorest congressional district in the United States, the school is designated for recently arrived immigrants. Students come from 30 different nations, mostly in Latin America, West Africa, and the Middle East, and speak 15 languages. Susso teaches approximately 120 students a year. “The philosophical foundation of my teaching is rooted in building relationships, so I get to know my students very deeply on an individual level,” he says. “My family comes from a long line of griots [storytellers and oral historians] and we begin each school year doing a lot of oral storytelling around personal histories, goals, perceived challenges, and visions. We are able to build meaningful connections with others this way. It is very difficult to hate someone if you know their story.”

Alhassan Susso MAT ’12 is New York State’s 2019 Teacher of the Year. Born and raised in the Gambia, Susso moved to the United States when he was 16 years old to join his father and brother who had immigrated years earlier. He attended public school in Poughkeepsie, New York, and planned to enter Dutchess Community College for a degree in business administration. The week before his high school graduation, however, he received news that the roof of his grandmother’s home in Gambia, where she had raised him, had collapsed during the rainy season, making her house uninhabitable. When Susso began teaching at ICHS, only 28 percent of its graduates “I faced the decision of whether to pursue my personal path or to help went on to college and about half of them ended up dropping out before receivsomeone who had given me so much.

Imran Aftab ’95: Paying It Forward Imran Aftab ’95 grew up in Karachi, Pakistan, in a family of six siblings. His childhood was a rags-to-riches-to-rags story, and he attributes much of his success to the kindness of others. When he was a teenager, Aftab’s parents could no longer afford to send him to the Jesuit high school he attended, and he was faced with dropping out when the bishop who was head of the school waived tuition so he could finish his studies. A chemistry teacher taught him to focus, which enabled him to take his SATs and apply to American colleges. “This teacher would talk to us about life and inspire us,” says Aftab. “Not only did I become a big fan of science, I knew that with his encouragement I could look beyond my circumstances and have hope.” The course of Aftab’s life changed again when Bard offered him a full-tuition Distinguished Scientist Scholarship. He remembers the day he landed in New York City, took the train to Poughkeepsie, and hired a taxi to campus. “It was a big culture shock. I had a certain perception of the United States from home, then I came to a beautiful, serene place, and, Imran Aftab ’95 at first I was like, ‘Where are all the people?’” At Bard, where he majored in chemistry, Aftab appreciated the caliber of professors with whom he studied, including the late Chinua Achebe. He also formed a close-knit community with other international students and worked several campus jobs. He may be the only Bardian who has fond memories of getting up at five in the morning to shovel snow for Buildings and Grounds. “I used to wear plastic bags on my feet so my sneakers didn’t get wet,” he recalls. “I had fun shoveling snow.” Grateful for the help he received in life, Aftab always wanted to pay it forward. In 2004, while working full-time as director of global outsourcing at AOL,

Aftab started a digital consulting company called 10Pearls. He imagined the benefits of a “blended shore” business model that could help create job opportunities in his home country. “In other parts of the world, society is much more interconnected by joined family systems,” says Aftab. “When someone earns money, they support their children, parents, extended families. One dollar—or a single created opportunity—can go a long way.” He recruited his brother in Karachi to join the venture, invested $2,000, and hired the first employee, who worked as a developer and designer out of an empty bedroom in the family’s Karachi home. Today, 10Pearls has almost 400 employees, offices in Karachi (no longer in a bedroom), Washington, D.C., San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Cebu City, and Dubai, and clients that include AARP, Hughes, Coca-Cola, and Johnson & Johnson. “Businesses need to do things differently in this age or they will be outpaced,” says Aftab. “Our company provides the full blend of end-to-end digital technology services, incorporating emerging technologies. We take our clients through this transformation and help them leverage technology to become more efficient and innovative so they can focus on their core business.” 10Pearls is committed to empowering and promoting women in technology, providing recruiting and training opportunities as well as free on-site daycare, gym facilities, and lunches to support mothers in the workforce. Aftab also founded the Empower Foundation, a nonprofit initiative of the company that works with partners to assist children, women, and the disabled without regard to color, creed, or religion. “As a Muslim child I was helped by the principal of a Jesuit school. This kind act created opportunity and hope. Kids don’t choose their cards. We have to help them, and we can help the kids by empowering the mothers.”

Arendt Center Conference: Citizenship and Civil Disobedience From Antifa, Occupy, #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, and sanctuary cities to the Tea Party Patriots, “fake news,” and fundamentalist bakers in Colorado, recent outbreaks of civil disobedience make manifest the fraying of a consensus around questions of economic and racial equality as well as social discrimination, immigration, and the uses of American power abroad. Why is citizen activism emerging across all parts of the political spectrum? Is civil disobedience an exemplary act of citizenship? Should violence be used in civil disobedience? Does democracy require civility? The Hannah Arendt Center’s 11th annual conference, “Citizenship and Civil Disobedience,” tackled these questions in lectures, workshops, roundtables, and special performances. Presenters and moderators included NEH/Hannah Arendt Center Distinguished Visiting Fellow Micah White, a public intellectual and lifelong activist who cocreated Occupy Wall Street; Mark Bray, a historian of human rights, terrorism, and political radicalism in modern Europe; Sarah Jaffe, an independent journalist; and Chantal Mouffe, professor of political theory at the Centre for the Study of Democracy at the University of Westminster in London. A performance in the Chapel of the Holy Innocents of Prayers of the People, a secular liturgical presentation of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail conceived by Kenyon Adams (little ray) and directed by Bill T. Jones, closed the conference.

Drawing from Alexis de Tocqueville, Arendt reminds us that as citizens we have recourse to civil disobedience as a means to freely associate with one another and come together in the public sphere to voice dissent. Voluntary associations are the “American remedy for the failure of institutions, the unreliability of men, and the uncertain nature of the future.”

Kathryn E. Stein ’66 returned to campus in November to discuss her distinguished career in science and to visit the biochemistry teaching lab named in her honor. Stein, the 2014 recipient of the John and Samuel Bard Award in Medicine and Science, told the standing-room-only crowd of students and faculty about her work in the field of polysaccharide-protein conjugate vaccines; her 22 years at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), including a decade as director of the Division of Monoclonal Antibodies; and her transition to the private sector. Stein left the FDA in 2002 to join biopharmaceutical company MacroGenics, where she established product development and regulatory affairs, project management, and quality and manufacturing departments. When Stein launched her consultancy, in 2012, she stayed on at MacroGenics as senior vice president of product development and regulatory affairs on a halftime basis. Since July 2012, Stein has also served as an expert consultant for NDA Partners, a life sciences management consulting and contract development organization focused on providing product development and regulatory services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries. In 2016, she became a director of Symbiotic Health, a privately held biotech company founded in 2013 to develop microbiome-based therapeutics to address critical public health challenges.

New Graduate Programs Bard’s innovative approach to undergraduate education includes dual-degree programs that lead to a bachelor’s and a graduate degree. Four such programs were added this academic year. Last summer, the Bard Graduate Center (BGC) announced a new BA/MA 3+2 program that offers Bard undergraduates majoring in history, art history, and anthropology a streamlined path to an MA in decorative arts, design history, and material culture. The new 3+2 program allows Bard students to extend their undergraduate education with advanced study in a distinguished master’s degree program that prepares them for future work in the arts professions or further graduate study. To complement its innovative, two-year master of science degree in economic theory and policy (recently reclassified as a STEM degree), the Levy Economics Institute is now offering a one-year MA program in economic theory and policy. The MA curriculum takes its starting point from Hyman P. Minsky’s pathbreaking work on the fragility of financial markets and Wynne Godley’s innovative stock-flow consistent modeling approach. Students are immersed in the institute’s research agenda, giving them a solid foundation in neoclassical and alternative economic theory, policy, and empirical research methods. The multidisciplinary approach of the MA program is specifically designed to prepare students to transition into a more traditional doctoral program in economics.

Bard’s Center for Environmental Policy (CEP) and the Master of Arts in Teaching Program (MAT) are collaborating on a new master’s degree in environmental education. The MEd degree is for students seeking careers in environmental education outside of a public school classroom setting: for example, in cocurricular, summer, and after-school programming; in charter schools and private schools; on farms; and in museums and science centers. CEP has also developed a 4+1 option in which Bard students take four CEP courses during their junior and senior years and complete their Senior Project under the guidance of a Senior Project board that includes a CEP faculty member. After graduating from Bard with a BA, students immediately enroll in CEP, where they begin a high-level professional internship the summer after graduation. They then complete a year of interdisciplinary, master’s-level course work toward either an MS (in environmental policy or climate science and policy) or an MEd (in environmental education). Also last summer, Bard MAT in Annandale introduced graduate study and teacher certification in Spanish language. The program includes graduate-level study in Spanish and education, a teaching assistantship with Bard’s Spanish Studies Program, and extensive mentored experience teaching Spanish in Hudson Valley middle and high schools. Information on Bard’s graduate programs can be found at

Family Dynamic Some people go to college to get away from home. And then there’s the Scanni family. Not only are all four siblings—senior Antonio BA/MS ’19, junior Giuliana BA/MS ’21, and fraternal twin first years Giordana ’22 and Marco ’22—enrolled at Bard at the same time, all four are varsity soccer players. It all started with Antonio, a fifth-year senior in Bard’s 3+2 Levy Economics Institute Master of Science in Economic Theory and Policy. An injury kept him off the field for the 2017 season, but NCAA rules allow an athlete five years to complete four years of eligibility, which enabled the Scanni brothers to play on the same team for the first time this past season. Antonio will graduate with a BA from Bard and MS from the Levy Economics Institute, as will Giuliana, who is in the same program (Giordana and Marco haven’t declared their majors yet). Parents Carlo and Sandra have been making the three-hour drive from their now eerily quiet house on Long Island since 2014, but this year has been different: pulling in to Annandale really is like coming home.

CCS and Human Rights Project Name New Keith Haring Fellow

Tiona Nekkia McClodden. photo Texas Isaiah

The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard) and Human Rights Project (HRP) at Bard College selected artist and curator Tiona Nekkia McClodden as the fifth recipient of the Keith Haring Fellowship in Art and Activism. Over the last two decades, McClodden has looked critically at intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and social commentary, through documentary film, experimental video, sculpture, and sound installation. McClodden began her one-year appointment in September and will spend the spring semester teaching at the College. At Bard, she continues her ongoing exploration of the poets Essex Hemphill and Brad Johnson and the composer Julius Eastman, key black artists who produced influential but underexamined works at the height of the AIDS epidemic. Her extensive notes on, audio interviews with, and ephemera from these artists, gathered without benefit of official archives or estates, will lead to a publication on their work. “Tiona Nekkia McClodden’s practice of retrieving, exhibiting, and teaching around important but less-known cultural figures provides a potent model for challenging received art histories,” says Lauren Cornell, director of the graduate program at CCS Bard and chief curator at the Hessel Museum of Art. McClodden, one of six American artists selected for the inaugural Open Immersion project, fostering experiments with virtual-reality storytelling around questions of inclusion and racial and social justice, is also the curator of A Recollection and Predicated, both part of Julius Eastman: That Which Is Fundamental, shown in Philadelphia and at The Kitchen in New York, where the black, gay, minimalist composer and performer appeared many times. At Performance Space 122 in Manhattan, where Keith Haring had his first studio exhibition, McClodden’s recent performance installation, CLUB, explored the nightclub’s “ability to temporarily dissolve rules that govern our everyday lives and allow people from different backgrounds to interact more freely.” Thomas Keenan, HRP director, says, “Tiona’s work echoes the life and passions of Keith Haring, his raucous joy and fervent commitments. For all of their archival richness, though, her projects are very much of the moment: pointed interventions in a world still marred by prejudice, discrimination, and violence.”

Irmas Award to Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard) has selected Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, director of Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in Turin, Italy, as the recipient of the 2019 Audrey Irmas Award for Curatorial Excellence. “Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev is a singular force within the field of contemporary exhibition making,” says Tom Eccles, executive director of CCS Bard. “Her far-reaching ideas and bold commitment to artists making new and ambitious works is equally matched by her exploration of artistic histories and their representations. Her remarkable Documenta (13) was undoubtedly one of the great exhibitions of our time.” The award, which comes with a $25,000 prize, celebrates the individual achievements of a leading curator or curators who have defined new thinking, bold vision, and dedicated service to the field of exhibition practice. It carries the name of patron Audrey Irmas, an emeritus board member of CCS Bard and an active member of the Los Angeles arts and philanthropic community, who endowed the prize. This year’s award will be presented by renowned art collector and member of the CCS Bard Board of Governors Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo at a gala celebration and dinner on April 17, 2019, in New York City.

CCE and Smolny Look at U.S.-Russian Relations Bard’s Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) presented a symposium on U.S.Russian relations to mark the 75th anniversary of the Tehran Conference, the first meeting between U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin, which took place in Tehran, Iran, between November 28 and December 1, 1943. Organized in association with Bard Network partner the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences (Smolny) of St. Petersburg State University, Boris Yeltsin Presidential Library, Roosevelt Institute, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, the symposium—U.S.-Russian Relations: From Tehran to Yalta and Beyond—sought to foster a deeper understanding of the impact that decisions made at the summit meeting had on U.S.-Russia relations not only during the Yalta Conference 14 months later but also in the years that followed. In Olin Hall and by video conference from Russia, leading historians and political scientists from the United States, Russia, and Great Britain touched on historical topics such as the Second Front, postwar planning, shifting balance of power, Soviet entry into the war against Japan, and the current state of RussianAmerican relations. An exhibition of key documents and photographs from the FDR Presidential Library and the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Library will be on view at the Stevenson Library at Bard College through December 24, 2018.

Ali Wentworth ’88: Laughs, Life Lessons, and Lemonade Comedian, actor, writer, and producer Ali Wentworth ’88 discovered her calling in comedy at Bard. As part of her Senior Project performance in theater, Wentworth was playing a virginal cello player in The Marriage of Bette and Boo by Christopher Durang when she had her epiphany on stage. “I pulled the cello toward myself in a very sexual way. It wasn’t part of the script or role. It was just my own physicality. I got a huge laugh. It was better than anything. From that moment I knew I wanted to do comedy, and everything I did from then on was for the laughs,” she says. After graduation, Wentworth moved to New York City to do theater. A William Morris agent suggested she pursue a Hollywood career in television and film because she looked like the best friend in every romantic comedy. She moved to Los Angeles and joined The Groundlings, an improv and sketch comedy troupe where comedians including Will Ferrell and Kathy Griffin were her contemporaries. Wentworth’s early breakthrough came when she joined the cast of Keenen Ivory Wayans’s hit show In Living Color. “I didn’t have a lot of fear,” she says. “They were looking for a black guy, but when Ali Wentworth ’88 I auditioned, I just was so confident.” Wentworth attributes that sense of security to her Bard days. “It was a remarkable atmosphere because I was surrounded by people who already knew they wanted to be artists and still are artists. Bard gave me the impetus to try everything. I never felt I had to contain creativity to one thing. No one said, ‘Why

are you doing that? It’s impossible.’ That, I got from my family.” Wentworth grew up in the Washington, D.C., establishment. Her mother, an influential socialite who served in the White House as Nancy Reagan’s social secretary, fretted over her daughter’s early career choices and advised her to take typing lessons as a backup. As it turned out, typing lessons were not necessary. Wentworth has gone on to roles in movies such as It’s Complicated (2009), Jerry Maguire (1996), and Office Space (1999) and television series including Seinfeld (1995), Head Case (2007–9), and Nightcap (2016), the latter two of which she wrote and produced. She also has written four books, including her most recent, Go Ask Ali: Half-Baked Advice (and Free Lemonade). “When I’m performing, I’m not playing myself. It’s fun because you can hide behind a character and be a lunatic. Writing is all me. It’s a much more vulnerable experience. I try to write in a humorous way that connects with people. I love doing it.” Looking back on her college days, Wentworth laughs at trying be the “groovy girl” on campus and then ending up marrying “the most conservative guy ever,” former Clinton administration adviser and ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, with whom she has two daughters. After Hurricane Maria, she took her kids to Puerto Rico to help hand out supplies. And last summer, she and her 15-yearold daughter spent two weeks volunteering in Burundi at a grassroots community nongovernmental organization, Village Health Works, where they worked in schools and health-care facilities. “I’m a big believer in showing my children realities,” she says. “I want them to know charity is not a black-tie event.”

Montgomery Place Events Bard College: The Montgomery Place Campus recently hosted its 2018 Salon Series on Agriculture. In partnership with Rose Hill Farm and the National Young Farmers Coalition, this one-day event gathered community members, students, academics, farmers, lawyers, journalists, and business and finance leaders to address these questions: Can the Northeast feed itself? If so, should it? At what environmental or other costs/benefits? Speakers included Gidon Eshel, research professor of physics and salon series program curator; Ruth deFries, professor of ecology and sustainable development at Columbia University and a MacArthur Fellow; Steve Rosenberg, executive director of Scenic Hudson Land Trust; Eric Posner, law professor at University of Chicago; Tamar Haspel, food and science journalist and Cape Cod oyster farmer; Steffen Schneider, director emeritus of farm operations at Hawthorne Valley Farm and president of the Biodynamic Association of North America board of directors; Leah Penniman, codirector and program manager of Soul Fire Farm and author of Farming While Black; and David Gould, head of investor relations at Amerra Capital. Gathering on the Banks, an inaugural series of free events presented by the Fisher Center at The Stage at Montgomery Place, included an outdoor dance performance, Souleymane Badolo: Yimbégré, featuring live music. In the Mooré language, yimbégré means “beginning.” For dancer, choreographer, and Bard artist in residence Souleymane “Solo” Badolo, born in Burkina Faso and currently based in Brooklyn, to begin again is to exercise personal freedom—yet often at the expense of familial roots. In this deeply personal work, Badolo pits ancestry against aspiration to explore the delicate balance between maintaining ties and seeking new homes free from creative and political intolerance.

Art World Luminaries at BHSEC Manhattan Bard High School Early College (BHSEC) Manhattan recently hosted “Creative Process in Dialogue: Art and the Public Today,” a conversation with poet Elizabeth Alexander, president of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and painter Amy Sherald about their creative processes and commitment to the humanities. Alexander wrote the poem “Praise Song for the Day” at Barack Obama’s request and read it at his first inauguration, and Sherald painted the official portrait of First Lady Michelle Obama. Moderators Brittney Edmonds, BHSEC literature professor, and Christian Crouch, Bard associate professor of history, posed questions about the process of patronage and collecting in the arts, artistic practice, and black feminism; how their work speaks across artistic media; and how their work engages with the image of body. “This event, the first of a series, was inspired by an ongoing dialogue surrounding race and diversity and social engagement in the visual and performative arts,” says organizer Drew Thompson, coordinator of the Africana Studies concentration at Bard. “We hope to create the opportunity for public conversation around creative artistic practice and the humanities, and how artists engage their audience and broader community.” The event was cosponsored by Humanities New York, Bard Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard Center for Civic Engagement, Bard Africana Studies, Bard High School Early Colleges, and Bard American Studies.

Faith and its ritual practice have long been central to human societies. Votive objects, placed at a sacred space or site of communal memory, often reveal the most intimate moments in people’s lives. Agents of Faith: Votive Objects in Time and Place, at Bard Graduate Center (BGC) Gallery through January 6, 2019, is the first large-scale exhibition to provide a broad perspective on the practices and history of votive giving. Featured works include a Minoan double ax-head from 1450–1700 BCE, thought to be from the cave where Zeus was believed to have been born; a rare, ancient, anatomical votive from the Louvre; a mid-14thcentury Italian sculpture of the Virgin and Child from the Metropolitan Museum of Art; and 100 votives from the folk-art collection of the Bavarian National Museum in Munich, which have never been exhibited in the United States. Contemporary religious and secular objects include a major private collection of Mexican retablos made by migrants along the U.S. border with Mexico, Yoko Ono’s Wish Tree, and objects left at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The exhibition was curated by Ittai Weinryb, BGC associate professor, with Marianne Lamonaca, chief curator, and Caroline Hannah, BGC associate curator.

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Tsar's Bride. photo Stephanie Berger

SummerScape Investigates the Russians Bard 2018 SummerScape, seven weeks of Russian and Russian-influenced music, dance, opera, film, theater, art, and cabaret, took its cue from composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, the subject of the 29th Bard Music Festival (BMF), who played a pivotal role in defining what we know as Russian music. Codirected by Leon Botstein and Christopher H. Gibbs, with scholar in residence Marina Frolova-Walker, this year’s BMF examined the life, times, and influences of Rimsky-Korsakov, and shed new light on a composer previously best known for his symphonic poem Scheherazade and the hit Flight of the Bumblebee. Weekend One, “Inventing Russian Music: The Mighty Five,” took its title from the group of nationalist composers that included Mily Balakirev, Modest Mussorgsky, Alexander Borodin, and César Cui as well as RimskyKorsakov. “What makes the Bard Music Festival so satisfying is the space it gives for nuance and contradictions,” Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim wrote in the New York Times. “A program on Sunday of mostly vocal music inspired by Pushkin revealed a treasure trove of overlooked gems alongside famous scenes from operas by Mussorgsky and Tchaikovsky.” Weekend Two, “Rimsky-Korsakov and His Followers,” featured programs that traced Russian musical traditions including folk, classical, and choral. Rimsky-Korsakov’s legacy was reflected in the music of Claude Debussy, Sergei Prokofiev, and Igor Stravinsky, among many others. A performance of Rimsky-Korsakov’s opera The Tsar’s Bride closed the weekend. Demon, Anton Rubinstein’s operatic masterpiece, was called “great fun” by the Wall Street Journal, which went on to say that the production, performed by an all-Russian cast with the American Symphony Orchestra, conducted by

Music Director Botstein and directed by Thaddeus Strassberger, “captured its rather mad obsessiveness.” Anthony Tommasini, writing in the New York Times, said, “Demon holds up very well, especially in the surging, rich performance Mr. Botstein drew from the American Symphony Orchestra and the Bard Festival Chorale.” Among the season’s many other highlights was the world premiere of a SummerScape commission in dance, Four Quartets, a paean to T. S. Eliot’s poetry cycle in the 75th year of its publication. Choreographer Pam Tanowitz collaborated with legendary Finnish composer Kaiji Saariaho and painter Brice Marden to create a thrilling union of poetry, dance, music, and painting that Alastair Macauley of the New York Times described as “dance theater of the highest caliber.” Tony Award–nominated actress Kathleen Chalfant performed Eliot’s text live. Another stunner was the new production of composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein’s musical Peter Pan, based on the play by J. M. Barrie. Famed New York City Opera director Christopher Alden’s subversive take on the original emphasized the darker side of Barrie’s work and was touted as “definitely not your grandparents’ Peter Pan!” In honor of what would have been Bernstein’s 100th birthday, it featured new orchestrations of the composer’s score by Garth Edwin Sunderland and choreography by Jack Ferver. The film series “Rimsky-Korsakov and the Poetry of Cinema” examined the influence of Russian nationalism, folk music, and exoticism on movie scores.

’64 Paul Andrei Pines died on June 27, 2018. He was 77.

After graduating from Bard College, he moved to the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where he found his artistic home among the poets, writers, artists, and musicians there. His first volume of poetry, Onion, was published in 1971. Two years later, he opened his jazz club, The Tin Palace, which was a mecca for cutting-edge music and poetry for many years. Pines taught literature, mythology, and creative writing at Adirondack Community College (now SUNY Adirondack) for 17 years. He later completed an MSW at SUNY Albany, beginning yet another career as a psychotherapist while continuing to write novels, poetry, and two memoirs. Paul was predeceased by his brother, Claude.

’68 Linda McClain Boldt, died August 13, 2018, at the age of 72. She earned a BA in history from Bard College, and twice married Bardians: Blake Fleetwood ’68, in 1976, and Marty Burman ’66, in 1985. She is survived by her son, Jason FleetwoodBoldt, and siblings Chris, Michael, Sally, and Jane. Linda’s classmate Marylyn Donahue sent a lovely tribute, which we’re pleased to share. A phenomenon exists at Bard. Some call it instant friendship—just add water and stir: You meet

someone outside Stone Row. You’ve seen each other around. You start talking. You keep talking. You sit on a nearby bench, talk some more. Who knew you had so much in common? Especially since you’re so very different in so many ways. You go on talking. By the time you part, you’ve become best friends forever. Nothing superficial about it. A friendship that would have taken years to evolve anywhere else happens instantly in the magical world of Annandale. Bard breeds connection. When our classmate Linda Boldt died unexpectedly in August from pancreatic cancer, a tsunami of emails immediately began circulating among classmates. A flood of cards, letters, and even photographs was received by her family. All spoke of how much Linda had meant to them, remembering times spent together. They came from all facets of her life at Bard. In many cases, Linda was all they had in common. Her family was deeply moved to find that after all these years so many remembered Linda, cared about her, had held her in such high esteem. Arriving at Bard in 1964, many of us were searching for something, experimenting, trying on different identities as if they were winter coats, tossing them aside when the weather changed. Not Linda. She arrived at Bard as Linda, very much her own person. And she stayed Linda, a constant at a time when nothing was constant. Tall, blonde, whip-smart, she hailed from Manhattan’s Upper East Side and the Brearley School—fancy credentials. You wanted to stereotype her, maybe even hate her. But she was not at all what you expected. She wasn’t the least bit elitist, cool, or off-putting, despite her privilege. If anything she was the opposite: open, curious, a listener, funny, and generous. She was also a feminist, a lefty, a tequila drinker, and a terrific dancer. Seriously committed to the College and to what she believed in, she wrote for the newspaper and led the House President’s Committee, where she was a key player in abolishing curfew. At base, her beliefs were deeply democratic—equal opportunity for all (she would have included pay). Education was the vehicle, a means by which the impossible could be achieved. Education was her private passion. She devoted her life to it, returning after graduate school and two master’s degrees to Brearley, where she was a faculty member for 29 years and head of the Learning Skills Department. As a teacher she specialized in reading and working with learning disabled students. No surprise, then, to discover that Linda was an inspiration and architect of Bard’s Class of 1968 Scholarship Fund, which supports an annual award to a student who best exemplifies the spirit of

The Tchaikovsky Papers: Unlocking the Family Archive edited by Marina Kostalevsky, associate professor of Russian; translated from Russian by Stephen Pearl Yale University Press This collection of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s letters, notes, and miscellanea, most of which have never been published in English, reveals his private thoughts, daily concerns, and playful—sometimes bawdy—humor. This compendium gives new insight into the upbringing, familial relationships, patriotism, and sexuality of one of Russia’s most influential artists.

Venice’s Intimate Empire: Family Life and Scholarship in the Renaissance Mediterranean by Erin Maglaque ’10 Cornell University Press Through a close study of the lives and careers of Giovanni Bembo and Pietro Coppo, two Venetian noblemen who were appointed as colonial administrators and governors, this book examines imperial rule in the Renaissance Mediterranean. Maglaque argues that intimate familial relationships determined much of the politics, shifting social structures, and metropolitan and colonial cultures of the Venetian empire.

Good Trouble by Joseph O’Neill, visiting distinguished professor of written arts Pantheon In this collection of stories, a lonely wedding guest talks to a goose, a cowardly husband lets his wife face a possible intruder in their home, and a potential co-op renter can’t find anyone to give him a reference. The characters’ internal monologues and vacillations expose the humor and vulnerability of contemporary life.

Rumor by Elizabeth Robinson ’85 Parlor Press Robinson explores in poetry the problems of violence, subjugation, and power. Language probes the interplay between personal and abstract, flesh and soul, physical and psychological, male, female, and transgender—“she lies a divided pronoun /. . . / knife slicing through softened self /. . . / She / crouches over / herself, a difficult / situation.”

A Roadmap to Rebuilding Worker Power by David Rolf ’92 The Century Foundation Consolidation of wealth and increasing corporate influence over government in the United States has created a dysfunctional democracy and a society in which workers have little economic or political power. This handbook argues for labor unions and workers organizations to innovate so they can achieve the power, scale, and sustainability needed to fight back and build the labor movement of the future.

How to Die: An Ancient Guide to the End of Life by Seneca, edited and translated from Latin by James Romm, James H. Ottaway Jr. Professor of Classics Princeton University Press Collected in this volume, Roman Stoic philosopher Seneca’s meditations on death emphasize its universality, importance as life’s final rite of passage, and capacity to liberate from pain, slavery, or political oppression. Believing one must rehearse for death throughout life, he wrote, “It takes an entire lifetime to learn how to die.” class notes 43

social activism and community service that distinguished the Class of 1968 during its years at Bard. The scholarship fund is a perfect reflection of what Linda held so dear. It is Linda’s legacy. It is our legacy as well, a way of keeping alive (in the very best sense) that connection, those instant friendships that ended up lasting our whole lives. If you’d like to add to the Class of ’68 Scholarship in memory of Linda, please send your contributions to Class of ’68 Scholarship Fund, Bard College Alumni/ae Office, PO Box 5000, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY 12504. Note that your gift is in honor of Linda.

The Marginalized Majority: Claiming Our Power in a Post-Truth America Onnesha Roychoudhuri ’04 Melville House Since the 2016 election, progressive thinkers have been portrayed as marginalized outsiders fighting for the right to be heard.

Narrow Distances

Brian Charles McKee, 40, passed away unexpectedly April 19, 2018, in Istanbul, Turkey, where he lived with his longtime girlfriend, artist Ai Kijima. He graduated with degrees in literature and photography from Bard—where he studied with Stephen Shore, Larry Fink, and Barbara Ess—and was awarded the Atget Prize in Photography, given to a senior whose work “exemplifies the essence of artistic documentary photography.” Beginning with photographs of Soviet military bases in the former East Germany, McKee explored the idea that “chaos is something that is never planned within a society, but is nevertheless inevitable.” He beautifully captured this decay in the former Soviet Union, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, India, Lebanon, the United States, and Turkey. In Turkey, McKee started a new career in screenplay writing and had completed several scripts. He is survived by his parents, Kathleen and Charles, and his brother, Kyle.

by Scott A. Silverstone, Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program faculty Rowman & Littlefield Challenging the conventional wisdom that Britain could have contained Germany with a preemptive use of force, Silverstone reexamines the Rhineland crisis leading to World War II as a critical study not for the value of preventive war but for analyzing and strategizing other ways to deal with power shifts among states, a central dynamic in world history.

Insane Clown President: Dispatches from the 2016 Circus by Matt Taibbi ’92 Spiegel & Grau Framed by two original essays exploring the uncertainty of the American predicament, these 25 pieces from Taibbi’s on-the-road, 2016 electiontrail reporting for Rolling Stone capture, with incisive, real-time analysis, the failures of the right and the left, the rise of spectacle over substance or even truth, and the obliteration of the political establishment.

Tools of War, Tools of State: When Children Become Soldiers by Robert Tynes, visiting assistant professor of political studies; associate director of research and site director, Bard Prison Initiative SUNY Press To gain tactical advantages, many governments, rebels, and terrorist organizations use children as soldiers. Employing statistical methods to analyze conflicts from 1987 to 2007, Tynes shows how widespread child soldiering is and explains how it developed out of Mao’s protracted-war theory and the militarization of youth in the 20th century.

The Plenitude of Distraction by Marina van Zuylen, professor of French and comparative literature Sequence Press This slim book rethinks the dangers of distraction, defending and celebrating the large and small fruits of an unfocused life, of meandering thought, of so-called wasted time. It draws on great writers whose work depended on nonlinear imagination, perambulation, and stumbling upon revelations along the pleasurable paths of diversion.

Please take some time to peruse this list, as these names represent the people whose generosity helps make Bard possible. I hope everyone on this list is as proud to see their name as I am, and I hope finding the names of friends or colleagues is an inspiration for others to be included in the next Honor Roll of Donors. I attended Bard on a Distinguished Scientist Scholarship funded by many of the names here. Connecting with Bard and Bardians has been one of the great pleasures of my life. I now serve as both an alumni/ae trustee and as president of the Bard College Alumni/ae Association’s Board of Governors. As my connection to Bard has grown since graduation, I have become even more aware of how fortunate I was to receive my undergraduate education at such a fearless, innovative, and exemplary institution and how important the support of alumni/ae, families, and friends, is to Bard’s mission to serve the public good. I would like to thank you personally for your confidence in, and generosity toward, Bard. As this issue of the Bardian demonstrates, we are an institution that emphasizes curiosity, a love of learning, idealism, and civic participation and one that continues to take the risks that other—far, far wealthier—institutions will not. Thank you again. With kind regards, Brandon Weber ’97, Alumni/ae Trustee; President, Board of Governors, Bard College Alumni/ae Association

JOHN BARD SOCIETY NEWS What does Eve Stahlberger ’97 have that Aretha Franklin, Sonny Bono, and Prince never had? A will! “I realize not many people my age have a will, but I do,” says Eve Stahlberger ’97. “It’s so important to me to make sure that I know where my assets will go and not let a stranger direct them.” Eve shared these thoughts in a conversation with Debra Pemstein after calling to notify the College that she had included Bard in her estate plans. Debra thanked her for her generosity and asked why she had created a will now and why she had chosen to dedicate a portion of her estate to Bard. Eve replied that she had actually had her will drawn up after September 11, 2001. She was living in New York City and realized that she needed to plan for her future. She also knew the importance of a will because she had been the beneficiary of a relative’s estate who passed away at a young age. Organizing her personal finances and assets and creating a will gave her security in a time of uncertainty. And her continuing belief that a Bard education will be relevant far into the future inspired her to contribute to the long-term fiscal health of the College.

Recent statistics show that six out of 10 Americans die without having made estate plans, which not only is hard on the family members left behind but results in some assets going to places they might not have wanted them to go. Bardians are smarter than that. Will you join Eve and more than 100 members of the John Bard Society in planning for the future? This is an excellent time to do so. You can ask friends for recommendations for an attorney, ask your accountant, or talk to a trusted adviser. In addition to a will, make sure that your beneficiary forms for any retirement accounts, IRAs, 401(k)s, 403(b)s, annuities, and life insurance policies are up to date. And don’t forget to let your loved ones know that you have a will and where it is located. When creating your will please consider including Bard in your plans. By including Bard in your will you will help sustain and strengthen the College. There are many ways to include Bard in your estate plan, from a residuary bequest to a restricted bequest to naming the College as a beneficiary of a retirement plan. Once you have included Bard in your estate plans let us know. We want to honor you with membership in the John Bard Society (JBS). The JBS was established to recognize loyal alumni/ae, faculty, staff, and friends who have made provisions for the College in their estate plans. JBS members share the belief that Bard provides an outstanding liberal arts education and continues to be a courageous, ambitious, and innovative institution worthy and deserving of their support. Join Eve and make a plan for your future, and include Bard in it. For further information on the JBS or any questions, please contact Debra Pemstein, vice president for development and alumni/ae affairs, at or 845-758-7405. All inquires are confidential. These descriptions provide information only. For specific information on your personal situation, please consult your legal and financial advisers.
