"East Africa Remakes the World," an article published in the November 2008 issue of American Theatre, features "Eti! East Africa Speaks!," a summer 2008 program co-organized by Laura Edmondson, assistant professor of theater. The program brought 11 East African theater artists (representing Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, and Rwanda) to Dartmouth for a two-week residency, followed by a stay in New York City. Edmondson also co-wrote Forged in Fire, a collaborative performance piece presented during the residency. Co-sponsored by the Department of Theater, "Eti! East Africa Speaks!" was also part of Dartmouth's 2008 Summer Arts Festival, AFRICAS. The article suggests that exchange programs to the United States, such as Eti!, "loom large in [East Africa's] ongoing act of transformation."

"It's great," says Evans. "It was quite a shocker when they called me."

Tom Zoellner, a student in the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (M.A.L.S.) creative writing program, appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on April 2, to discuss his most recent book Uranium: War, Energy, and the Rock that Shaped the World. Stewart, after joking that he intended to interview experts on every element of the periodic table, quizzed Zoellner on the challenging paradoxes uranium presents for the 21st century. Zoellner is also the author of The Heartless Stone, an investigation into the diamond industry, and co-author, with Paul Rusesabagina, of Rusesabagina's autobiography An Ordinary Man. Rusesabagina, who saved the lives of more than 1,000 people during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, was the inspiration for the film Hotel Rwanda. Click here to watch the show.
