From voting rights to equal rights and a workshop on The Acting Body, it’s a great week for events

By Kellyann Hayes '16 on November 17, 2013

With Thanksgiving break around the corner, make your last week on campus count! Here are a few of the fun and educational events you can attend solo or with a group of friends this week.

Head over to 212 Ryan Studio on Monday at 4:15 p.m. to attend The Acting Body. This workshop, led by Yuri Kordonsky, Christian A. Johnson Artist-in-Residence in Theater, will examine the use of the acting body to create a genuine emotion. So whether you’re an actor or have never set foot on stage, stop in to learn something new.

On Tuesday at 12:30 p.m., Professor Chris Nevison will lead a seminar defining and discussing weighted voting games and the importance of analyzing the power of voters in them. In “The Zipke Index: A Naïve Approach to Power in Weighted Voting Games,” the election of the Board of Supervisors for Madison County will be used to define a measure of power in voting games developed by two Colgate students in the course MATH 312, proving that their measure is equivalent to literature’s standard measure of power.

If you or someone you know has experienced sexual assault; if you believe in equal rights for men and women; if you consider yourself a feminist; if you have experienced judgment and isolation on campus – these are all reasons to stop by the Women Studies Center on Tuesday at 8 p.m. Sit down for milk, cookies, and hot chocolate while having an open discussion about these topics and more. For more information, go here.

It’s back again! The Colgate Ballet Company will perform their annual production of The Nutcracker on Wednesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. This holiday treat is completely student-directed, student-choreographed, and student-performed, guest-starring children from the Hamilton community. Grab some friends and head over to Brehmer Theatre to get into the holiday spirit.

A great line-up – but the week’s events aren’t limited to these! To see what else is happening this week, be sure to check out the full Colgate calendar of events.
