Each academic year the DCF chooses a theme upon which to base its programming. The 2013-2014 Dartmouth Centers Forum theme is Body Politic(s): Health, Wellness, and Social Responsibility. Amidst a climate of global uncertainty, there is no more critical issue than taking care of ourselves and each other. From international dialogue to local organizing, the DCF looks to engage our entire community through this issue.
Some questions that align with our theme:
The DCF has created a focus for each term that will help students, staff, and faculty explore elements of the theme. For more information on these topic, see the Current Theme page.
Besides advancing this theme through the wide and varied missions of its member Centers, each term the DCF also will accept programming proposals through a Request For Proposals (RFP) process for students, faculty, and staff. Through this RFP, the DCF wishes to work in partnerships to facilitate meaningful discussions about the power of the arts, especially the arts at Dartmouth, to advance the missions of our member centers. The DCF hopes that this goal can be achieved through panels, workshops, discussions, and performances that will enable all members of the community to consider how powerfully the arts affect our understanding of the world, its people and its problems.
The DCF has released the RFP for fall term programming (due date: noon on October 9th). More information on the RFP process can be found on the Current Theme page.
In addition to programming funded through our RFP and DCF-led programming, the DCF's member centers will conduct programming focused on Body Politic(s). Information on future events is on the Upcoming Events page. Please check back often to learn about newly scheduled events related to the Body Politic(s) theme.
