(04/03/19 4:42pm)

The Super Bowl. The World Series. Certain events have been entrenched in American sporting culture for decades, with a historical legacy that lives on long into the future. Since its inception 85 years ago, the pinnacle of golf has always been The Masters. 

'Reminds me most of home': How a family dish helps one Duke student reconnect with her roots

(04/03/19 5:06am)

We eat for several reasons—to survive and procrastinate, yes, but also to reconnect with home. Nothing transports us back to the family dinner table faster than tasting our grandma’s three-cheese mac n’ cheese or baba’s pork and preserved egg congee. 

MFA | EDA student discusses distinction project on ectodermal dysplasia

(04/04/19 4:00am)

Duke established the two-year MFA | EDA program in 2011, drawing in a diverse range of photographers, videographers and other artists. The program's annual thesis exhibition, celebrating the work of the 2019 class, is on display now from March 18 to April 13 around Duke and Durham. It features exhibits at the Power Plant Gallery, the Jameson Gallery and the Rubenstein Arts Center, among other venues. The Chronicle sat down to talk with Jacob Moss, a member of the 2019 cohort, about his project "One Arm Dove Hunt," which highlights individuals with ectodermal dysplasia, which involves defects of the hair, nails, teeth, skin or glands. This interview has been edited for length and clarity. 

AMI Faculty Filmmaker Spotlight showcases professors' latest projects

(04/03/19 4:15am)

Students often come to know their professors over the course of a semester-long class, where instructors serve more as mentors and advisors than writers, researchers or filmmakers. The 2019 AMI Faculty Filmmaker Spotlight, held this past Thursday at the Rubenstein Arts Center, highlighted the role of AMI professors as artists in their own right through a screening of their most recent filmmaking projects. 

The invisible labor of marginalized faculty

(04/03/19 4:00am)

Over the weekend, 13 Yale professors announced that they would be stepping down from their positions at the university’s Ethnicity, Race & Migration (ER&M) program. Their resignations were not the result of scandals or misconduct, but rather the acts of protest against Yale’s alleged refusal to support both the program and its larger mission. Yale created the ER&M program in 1997 as an interdisciplinary major, but then neglected the program, leaving it without an official department, autonomy or adequate funding. In the words of one of the program’s former professors, ER&M “has essentially been sustained by voluntary labor for the past 20 years.” The issues that exist in academia, specifically when it comes to inequality, are vast and deeply entrenched into the foundations of our academic institutions. This includes the unseen and uncompensated obligations and responsibilities taken on by professors, graduate student and staff members from marginalized backgrounds.

Don’t let schooling interfere with your education

(04/02/19 4:00am)

Imagine if during Orientation Week, you were guaranteed your dream job or top graduate school program upon graduation. Duke would no longer be seen as a stepping stone for the future. Instead, every student would have the opportunity to make their Duke experience what they really desired. How do you think your four years as a Blue Devil would differ as a result?
