Featured Event

December 1, 2018
from Artist Annie Zeybekoglu '67. Tea is everywhere--its ubiquitous presence rivals the most common object. Once used, each stained teabag holds a personal experience, records a private sharing, serves as a visual reminder of conversations, reunions, and journeys. Tea is a common denominator in much of the artwork of Smith alumna Annie Zeybekoglu '67. Tea serves as a vehicle for preserving memories offering subtle tonalities that have evolved into her artist’s palette, finding expression in her handcrafted jewelry, books and image making. Exhibition on view Mon.-Fri., 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Opening exhibition reception is Friday, Sept. 28, 5-7 p.m. September 10-December 14,
Alumnae House Gallery, 33 Elm St.

Climate change is predicted to lead to an increased intensity and frequency of natural disasters. This increase in extreme weather events may lead to displacement and forced migrations, involving UNHCR and IOM responsibility on the international scene. Focusing on the UNHCR and IOM international organizations, how are these existing international development, migration and humanitarian organizations dealing with climate change? Marine Denis, PhD candidate in public international law at Université Sorbonne Paris Cité, will challenge and discuss these issues. Pizza will be provided for the first 25 attendees.
