Smith to Kick Off World Celebration of Berlioz
In honor of the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of history's greatest Fench composers, Hector Berlioz, Smith will host an international colloquium, "Berlioz: Past, Present, Future," from March 31 through April 2. The event, which will take place in Sage Hall and at the Mendenhall Center for the Performing Arts, will feature two public lectures by world-renowned scholars, a special public concert by the Borromeo String Quartet and an exhibit of rare original documents. Also at the conference, papers will be presented by Berlioz specialists, including M. Jean-Pierre Angremy, president of the French National Library, and Mme. Catherine Massip, director of the music division of the French National Library.
The conference, directed by Professor of Music Peter Bloom, is the first in a series of events around the world designed to honor the artist -- a composer, conductor, critic, theorist and writer. Smith's conference will be followed by a 2001 Berlioz celebration at Germany's Bayreuth Festival, a 2002 four-day conference in London, and a culminating 2003 event in France (both in Berlioz's home town of La Côte-Saint-André and in Paris).
Berlioz is often hailed as the greatest musical artist of his generation. Yet he never achieved the fame or renown of some of his musical contemporaries. "Berlioz is not my favorite composer," Bloom confesses, "but I would rather have him to dinner than, say, Beethoven, who might succeed in spilling his soup on the floor, or Wagner, who might succeed in stealing my wife." Bloom cites Berlioz's musical work as "supremely original.[sometimes] as sublime as music can be," and calls his books and articles "hilariously funny, even though his humor is often tinged with bitterness, because he sometimes resented that others had greater success." A romantic artist, Berlioz often struggled with the conflict between his outward rebelliousness and his strong sense of mission, says Bloom.
That struggle will be the subject of the conference's keynote address. The lecture, titled "Berlioz's Berlioz," will be given by Peter Gay, an authority on 18th- and 19th-century European history. Gay, the Sterling Professor of History Emeritus at Yale University and director of the Center for Scholars and Writers at New York Public Library, will present his talk on Friday, March 31, at 7 p.m. in Sage Hall.
Gay's lecture will be followed by one of the conference's highlights, a special Saturday, April 1, address by Jacques Barzun, titled "Fourteen Points About Berlioz and the Public or Why There Is Still a Berlioz Problem." Barzun, University Professor of History Emeritus at Columbia University, is a former literary adviser to Charles Scribner's Sons. One of the most celebrated scholars in America, Barzun is also renowned as the father of all modern Berlioz research. His lecture will take place in Sage Hall at 4:30 p.m.
In the evening on April 1, the Borromeo String Quartet will give a concert at 7 p.m. in Sage Hall. All graduates of the renowned Curtis Institute of Music, the quartet's members have been hailed by the Strad for their "music making of utter genius." They will play two late quartets by Beethoven, Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 130, and Quartet in C-sharp Minor, Op. 131 -- works especially prized by Berlioz. Tickets for the concert are available at the Smith College Box Office (585-ARTS or 585-3164).
Throughout the conference, a special exhibit, called "Berlioz: Episodes in the Life of the Artist," will be on display at the Mendenhall Center for the Performing Arts' Josten Library. The exhibit will include rare documents from the collection of Richard Macnutt, owner of the largest private Berlioz collection in the world.

from France and Canada will speak in French) can be found on

Films to Plumb History of Teaching in U.S.
Who becomes America's teachers? How do they succeed in their profession? How do they fail?
Those are some of the questions driving independent filmmaker Claudia Levin's three-part documentary series, Only A Teacher. Produced in association with the Smith College Project for Women and Social Change, for which Levin is a research associate, the project explores the role of the American teacher in our society from the 1830s to the present. The series, which has received funding from the Ford Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the state humanities councils of North Carolina, South Carolina, New York, California, and Massachusetts, also recently received a $250,000 grant from the Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. Scheduled to be completed by August 2000, Only a Teacher will air nationally on PBS.
Fascinated by the educational field, Levin, the project's producer and director, began researching various issues in education several years ago. Her research fueled her interest, particularly the question of how we got where we are today, she explains. To better understand American education's progress and development over the past century and a half, Levin decided to develop a documentary that would serve as "a dialogue between past and present." Thus was born Only a Teacher, a program that has been described as bringing to life "the history that has shaped and informed the teaching profession, illuminating how the profession developed, where it stands today, and what challenges and opportunities lie ahead," according to a project description.
Each of the series' three hour-long episodes is built around the commentaries of contemporary teachers and scholars and is framed by a present-day story. "With every story we explore in a time period, we try to give it a contemporary perspective," Levin explains. The series begins with an episode titled "A Teacher Affects Eternity." Set in the Common School Era (1830s-1880s), as "free public schooling spread across the expanding nation and women began filling out the ranks of teachers," the first episode "explores the ongoing importance of teachers in the lives of their students, emphasizing their crucial influence as role models and upholders of social norms," Levin says. The series' second episode, "Those Who Can Teach," considers teachers in their professions and "traces the early development of school bureaucracies and the attendant rise of teachers' unions, and exposes America's ambivalence towards a profession practiced mostly by women," says Levin. The final episode, "Teaching in the School Community," "surveys issues in school reform and their relationship to social change from the end of the 19th century to the present," she says. "It asks what role we want teachers to play in this process and what role teachers want for themselves."
Following its PBS showing, Only a Teacher will enjoy extensive distribution in the educational market, Levin says. "We will make the series widely available to teachers, schools of education, policy groups, and parent-teacher organizations. We expect the films to be of particular use in teacher-training and professional development programs."

Adas' Kids' Art Goes on Display
On March 28, the second annual Ada Comstock Children's Exhibition will open in the foyer of Seelye Hall. Featuring the artistic efforts of toddlers and teenagers alike, the exhibition is designed to celebrate Adas' children while raising their visibility within the Smith College community, says Esther Jno-Charles AC '00, the event's creator and coordinator. "There aren't many activities available on campus for Adas' children," explains Jno-Charles, the mother of a son, 15, and a daughter, 12. "It just came to mind that this could be a way to let Smith know that these children exist."
While organizing last year's exhibition, which also took place in March, Jno-Charles says she was afraid the event wouldn't be very well attended or received. "I didn't know how people would respond, because it's never been done before at Smith," she confesses. But the exhibition, which featured the original artwork and poetry of 20 children, was a great success. "Students and faculty and all those who viewed the exhibits were proud and touched," says Jno-Charles. "People really liked the simplicity, the originality, the depth of the poems and art. It was just very uplifting."
Stephanie Haynes-Lewis AC, whose 12-year-old daughter participated in last year's event, concurs. "It was a good experience for the children," she says. "I think that the parents whose children participated got a lot out of it too: 'These are our children, look what they did.'"
Particularly impressive to Haynes-Lewis was the certificate each participant received. "Each of the children got a certificate of appreciation, actually signed by Ruth Simmons," Haynes-Lewis explains. "She took the time to sign each and every one."
Though this year's exhibition, which opened March 20 and runs through March 31, will feature a smaller and younger group of participants, it promises to be another colorful and rewarding celebration of Adas' children's creative talents, assures Jno-Charles. Haynes-Lewis' daughter, who last year wrote a poem called If Plants Could Talk and drew a still-life picture of flowers in a vase, "is looking forward to participating again this year," her mother says. Like Jno-Charles, who says "it's very important for our children to do this," Haynes-Lewis enjoys having her daughter actively participating in campus life through the exhibition. "I figured when Smith accepted me, they accepted her too," Haynes-Lewis says.

Fee Approved by Trustees
At its meeting February 25 and 26 the Smith College Board of Trustees approved the comprehenisve fee for 200001 and took action on a number of other matters. The board voted to raise the comprehensive fee for next year by 4.3 percent to $31,744, which inlcudes $23,400 for tuition, $8,160 for room and board and $184 for the student activities fee.
In other actions, the board elected Judith Bronstein Milestone '66, executive producer of network booking and director of research at CNN/Turner Broadcasting System Inc. to a five-year term as alumna trustee, subject to her election in May by the Smith College Alumnae Association; and Katrina Gardner '00, retiring head of student government to a two-year term as trustee, beginning July 1. An invitation to become an ex officio member of the board beginning July 1, subject to her election by the alumnae association, was extended to Susan Porth '70, president-elect of the association.
The board approved emeritus status for five faculty members who will retire June 30: Lawrence Joseph, professor of French language and literature; Thomas Lowry, professor of chemistry; Philipp Naegele, William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Music; Helen Searing, Alice Pratt Brown Professor of Art; and Frances Volkmann, Harold Edward and Elsa Siipola Israel Professor of Psychology.
From Bangladesh to Smith
After graduating from Harvard Medical School in 1976, Nils Daulaire went to work in a rural clinic in Bangladesh. His original plan was to return to Vermont as a primary care physician, but the appalling health conditions and low status of women and girls he encountered in Bangladesh charted his life's work in another direction.
Today, Daulaire is president and CEO of the Global Health Council, and former senior health adviser of the U.S. Agency for International Development. Conversant in seven languages, Daulaire has conducted fieldwork in more than 20 countries, including Nepal, Mali, Haiti, Guatemala and Bolivia.
On Tuesday, March 28, at 8 p.m. in Neilson Library Browsing Room, Daulaire will discuss the connections among health, population and environment.
According to Daulaire, "Saving women's lives requires decent health services within reasonable range of people's households[Maintaining women's health] goes to the heart of what we consider to be sustainable development, which is a system that is always there and always working."
The lecture is sponsored by the Population Committee of the Pioneer Valley Sierra Club, the Smith College Project on Women and Social Change, the Office of the President and several Five College academic departments. For more information, call Anita King at 268-9212.
FAC Seeks the Artist in You
Two upcoming contests coordinated by the Fine Arts Council (FAC) at Smith College aim to inspire students to discover their creative side and come up with some works of art.
The ninth annual Art Search and Show will take place this year April 13 and 14 in Davis Ballroom, and will likely feature the artwork of more than 25 students in several mediums, from glasswork to drawings and large paintings. Contestants typically range in artistic experience from novices to experienced professionals.
The Art Search and Show is the FAC's main event of the year, says council member Libby Page AC. "This is our big event," she says. "We want to get Smith students out there to see other Smith students' art work. We really like this event."
The show's objective is to inspire Smith students, as many as possible, to display their artistic side to their associates and Smith community members. "It's fascinating to see other people's art work," says Page, who attended last year's show. "I was surprised at the level of talent."
All attendees of the show are asked to vote on their favorite pieces of art during the show, between 4 and 8 p.m. April 13, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 14. The winners, artists who receive the most votes from spectators, will be announced at a reception at 7 p.m. April 14 in the ballroom. Winners will receive prizes of $300 for first place, $200 for second place, and $100 each for third and fourth place.
To qualify for the show, submit your artwork in Davis Ballroom April 13 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Artwork should be marked with the artist's name and telephone extension. No artists will be turned away, and all students are encouraged to vote at the show.
Also, the FAC needs a new logo to use on its Web site and in promotional fliers, and it's asking students to design the logo via a contest. The contest winner will receive $100 and will be announced at the Art Search and Show reception. Submitted designs must include the words "FAC of Smith College" and should be submitted on computer disk by 1 p.m. April 12 to the Student Affairs Office in College Hall. Entries must include the designer's name and telephone number.
For more information about the Art Search and Show or logo contest, call show chair Nellie Garcia, ext. 7569.
A Treasure Trove of Videos in NPRC
Located in the basement of the Alumnae Gymnasium, the Smith College Nonprint Resource Center (NPRC) houses a wealth of VHS videotapes, laserdiscs, 16mm films, and spoken audiotapes. Totaling more than 4,000 items, the collection contains everything from educational videos to popular feature films. As of last year, however, many Smith students still felt the selection lacked something: the collection simply did not reflect the diversity of the Smith campus.
Mentha Hynes, assistant dean for multicultural affairs, immediately took note. "I was aware that students were somewhat frustrated with the selection of videos [in terms of diversity]," explains Hynes. In their frustration, Hynes saw opportunity. "I saw this was a chance for my office to begin a partnership with NPRC," she says. With funding from the Office of Multicultural Affairs and assistance from her intern, Maxine McKinney '99, Hynes began looking for videos to donate to the resource center.
It was not easy selecting the videos,
says Hynes, who firmly believed that the collection should contain
variety ("some lighthearted, others provocative and hard-edged").
The films arrived at NPRC in August, and have been popular with students so far, says NPRC film booker and reserve clerk Marlene Znoy. "It's a pretty broad selection," she said. "Students are always checking out feature films, and a lot of [the donated videos] are recent releases. I've seen a lot of them go out."
Hynes, who views the donation as "one small gesture of collaboration between two offices with long-term gain for the entire campus," is pleased with the videos' popularity. And perhaps the donation will have other long-term benefits as well. As Hynes suggests, "Looking long term, I am hopeful that NPRC will make a commitment to add to the collection each year and that departments like American studies, Afro-American studies, theatre and dance, will submit requests for work that is diverse in theme," she says. "I believe the Office of Multicultural Affairs has a responsibility to make available diversity programming -- educational and social -- that complements the in-class experience of our students. However, my office does not shoulder this responsibility alone. It is a campus responsibility."
All videos in the Nonprint Resources
Center collection are available to be checked out by students,
faculty, staff and community members with proper Smith identification.
Track and field
Katherine E. Pope, a first-year student
from Winter Park, Florida, has been selected to go to Cuba on
an international delegation. During their stay in Cuba, Pope
and other members of her delegation will attend a conference,
debating issues concerning the embargo and human rights, and
touring the country. Originally planned for March, Pope's trip
has been postponed as a result of political tensions. "We
are now going during June, provided those tensions do not unexpectedly
increase," Pope says. Pope is pursuing a double major in
history and physics.
