Kennedy Memorial Hall - Room 112

Reception will be held at 6:30pm

The Lecture will begin at 7:00pm

Cleopatra, last pharaoh of Egypt, may be the most famous female ruler in all of history.  But her Roman enemies made her notorious for all the wrong reasons: her political ambitions, her sumptuous lifestyle, and above all her love affairs with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.  Yet if we look past the long-standing stereotypes of popular culture, from Plutarch and Shakespeare to Elizabeth Taylor and Hollywood, the archaeological evidence paints a very different picture.  In this illustrated lecture, we will tour the Egypt that Cleopatra inherited from her Ptolemaic ancestors, view her self-chosen portraits on coins and temple walls, and take in her extraordinary achievements as goddess, priestess, queen, civil administrator, scholar, lover, and above all, mother.  Our journeys will follow Cleopatra from the Nile to the Tiber, and from desert shrines to the streets and palaces of her capital at Alexandria, now sunken beneath the waters of Alexandria harbor.  Archaeological discoveries create a truer picture of Cleopatra than the many literary and dramatic fantasies that have distorted the memory of this great leader.

Kennedy Memorial Hall - Room 112

The main event for the CTE’s (Center for Teaching Excellence) 2014-2015 Faculty Learning Community, and our second annual Innovations in Higher Education Lecture, will be a talk by Daniel Chambliss, professor of sociology at Hamilton College and one of the co-authors of How College Works.

“Constrained by shrinking budgets, can colleges do more to improve the quality of education? And can students get more out of college without paying higher tuition? Daniel Chambliss and Christopher Takacs conclude that the limited resources of colleges and students need not diminish the undergraduate experience. How College Works reveals the surprisingly decisive role that personal relationships play in determining a student’s collegiate success, and puts forward a set of small, inexpensive interventions that yield substantial improvements in educational outcomes.”  Harvard University Press For more information, contact Jim Lang.

Assumption College’s Department of Art, Music and Theatre presents Fiddler on the Roof, its seventh annual spring musical at the Hanover Theatre, April 24-26. The winner of nine Tony Awards, Fiddler tells a classic story of love, strength and family.

Set in the Pale of Imperial Russia in 1905, Fiddler on the Roof is the story of Tevye, the father of five daughters, as he struggles to maintain his family and Jewish tradition while external influences encroach on their lives. He must cope with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters as well as an edict from the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.

Featuring music written by Jerry Bock, with lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and a book by Joseph Stein, Fiddler is filled with timeless classics, including “If I were a Rich Man,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Sunrise, Sunset.”

Directed by Richard Monroe, the show features more than 30 Assumption College students. Learn more about the production here.

Tickets cost $27 for adults, $19 for senior citizens, and $10 for students with a valid college ID. Tickets are available at The Hanover website.
