* Chris Sidor '94, who now is a graduate student at the University of Chicago, presented a paper at the annual meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology in Pittsburgh a week ago. The paper focused on a large collection of fossil specimens that previously had been regarded as mammalian ancestors known as "therapsids." Chris' analysis determined that the specimens actually were pelycosaurs, large sail-backed creatures of the Paleozoic Era; the specimens had been misinterpreted due to their fragmentary condition. This was Chris' third presentation at a national scientific meeting; the first two presentations were given while he was a Trinity undergraduate.

* Associate Professor of Anthropology Jane Nadel-Klein recently spent a week in northern Norway at the invitation of the anthropology faculty at the Norwegian College of Fishery Science. She lectured on the following three topics: "Do the Fisher Laddies Still Need the Fisher Lassies? Problem solving and gender roles in a Scottish village"; "Gender and Locality: Feminist research in an anthropological framework"; and "An American Female Researcher and Scottish Laddies: Dilemmas of participation and observation in a changing environment." Participants in the seminar came from universities in Norway, Iceland, Canada and the United States. The lecture series was part of a doctoral course entitled "Global Resource Crises -- Marginalized Women and Men? Comparative Perspectives on the Relation Between Gender, Nature and Society."

* What's making news at other colleges? A recent study presented to the Board of Trustees at Wesleyan by the college's dean of admissions asserts that Wesleyan may be having difficulty attracting middle-class students with high SAT scores, according to public reports on the study compiled by Wesleyan's director of institutional research. One reason for the trend, according to the dean, is that schools with comparable reputations use financial aid packaging to "buy" students whose financial aid status is questionable. Wesleyan President Douglas Bennet emphasized that the college does not and will not package aid based on the academic achievements of applicants. Wesleyan believes, however, that this need-blind aid policy has cost the university many of its middle-class applicants who often go to schools that give aid packages based on achievement.

LATIN AMERICAN AND SPANISH FILM AT TRINITY COLLEGE TODAY

TRISTANA

(LUIS BUNUEL, Spain 1970, 98 minutes) A passionate drama of sexual desire with an exceptional cast, TRISTANA is one of the most powerful and corrosive movies of the mature Bunuel. The stunning beauty of Catherine Deneuve, who plays the title role, holds her lecherous uncle, played by the great Fernando Rey, and her lover, a young, idealistic artist, locked in a perverse triangle of moral decay.

Based on a quasi-feminist novel by Galdos, TRISTANA probes into the darkest corners of the unconscious and offers a sardonic look at traditional gender roles in ways similar to Belle de Jour.

Subject: QP: C-SPAN Live Interview

Update:

Two of Trinity's students had the extraordinary experience of acting as surrogates or stand-ins for President Clinton and Senator Dole on the stage of the Bushnell this morning while CNN checked all the camera angles. Mike Bradley '98 and Stephen Jewett '97, both of whom are working with CNN this weekend, were asked to stand in for the candidates! The stood for several hours, decked out in sports jackets and the obligatory Trinity tie. Steve posed as President Clinton, who is several inches taller than he; therefore Steve was required to stand on a roll of duct tape for the entire staging session. Associated Press (AP) cameras took lots of photographs so it is quite possible (assuming the a photo is put on the AP wire) that their faces and a caption regarding Trinity will be carried in newspapers across the country. The Hartford Courant also had a photographer on the scene. During this morning's live interview of freshmen Anne Sawyer and Steve Chin on C-SPAN, Steve Jewett was visible on the stage in the background for a few seconds. CNN's own coverage this morning included footage of the two Trinity students on stage.
