College Farm and Sustainability

Bike to the Farm Potluck 2017: Join in the tradition and Register Now!

The Center for Sustainability Education (CSE) is hosting a 7-mile (each way) group bike ride to the Dickinson College Organic Farm at 11:00 am on Saturday, October 21, 2017. The event is designed to build community, improve rider skills and safety, and introduce faculty, staff and students to the Farm. Pre-registration at the link below is requested for this free, fun, adventure.

Rider groups based on ability are organized with experienced ride leaders for each group. Past events have had from 30 to over 100 Dickinson student, faculty, staff, alumni and family participants. All are welcome. We depart from the Department of Public Safety parking lot next to Kaufman Hall.

Each participant brings a dish to share and the food is transported to and from the farm by van. Once at the farm, participants share a meal, play games, tour the farm, play music, or simply enjoy time outdoors, before the groups head back. Safety vans and bike transportation will be available for those that can only travel one way.

CSE is always looking for co-sponsors, ride leaders, and new participants in this Dickinson tradition.

E-mail biking@dickinson.edu for more information.

Faculty Research Lunch: Eric Vazquez - The Caravan of the Mutilated: Disability, Transnational Protest, and the Remittance Form

Please join the Women's and Gender Resource Center and the Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies for our October Faculty Research lunch on 10/24, 12-1pm, in Stern 102.

This talk will examine the testimonies of the Association of Returned Migrants with Disabilities (AMIREDIS), a group organized in Honduras that sought to confront the United States with the dangers and potential mutilations that migrants face in the journey northward from Central America. By analyzing their manner of transnational protest in conversation with how members emplot their experiences through testimony, I suggest that AMIREDIS reimagines the social and cultural logic of remittances—payments issued to home countries by laborers abroad.

Lunch is provided: Please rsvp to wgrc@dickinson.edu to help us have an accurate count.
