upcoming events.

Zoom technology has brought classes and people together during the pandemic, and Ohio Five campuses have used it to broaden those connections world-wide with cultural events and conversations, shared on campus and among Ohio Five colleges.

Two films remain in Mujeres y Cine, a collaborative month-long virtual Hispanic film festival featured international award-winning films released in 2018 and 2019.  The Zoom event, organized by Ohio Wesleyan and Denison University faculty, are followed by conversations with their women directors and faculty scholars.  Zoom links, available on the festival website, are available for the final events of the series:

In October, Kenyon launched a year-long virtual residency with Theatre of War Productions, which uses theatre productions based in classical texts to foster dialogue about pressing social and public health issues. Ohio Five campuses were invited to participate in the October 8 performance and discussion around Antigone in Ferguson, a dramatic production focusing on racialized police justice. Kenyon has announced plans to include the general public in its next event, The Book of Job, which draws on a dramatic reading of the Biblical text to understand natural disaster.
