Support the Tomatoes in the Community Garden

submitted by greena@augsburg.edu

There are some wonderful tomatoes growing in the community garden, but it’s time to get them some support before they fall over! Tomato cages are expensive and not always effective, so we’re holding a Great Tomato Stake-Off in the garden next Friday, June 30th at 5pm. We’re willing to be creative with staking materials, but we’re especially looking for donations of the following: wooden stakes (~ 6 ft tall with a pointed end), bamboo poles, tall metal stakes for fencing, or anything similar to those materials. Can you check your garages and alleys for these materials and anything else you think could creatively be used to keep tomatoes upright and happy? Donations can be dropped off at the Sabo Center anytime before June 30th. Contact Allyson if you want confirmation that your scrounged materials will actually be useful for staking tomatoes!

You may not be currently a part of an Augsburg athletic team.
This study involves a one-hour visit to Kennedy Center Physiology lab (room 309) for Functional Movement Screen testing and a video of a drop jump. Participants will receive a $10 gift card to Target.

You can reach me at: widsetht@augsburg.edu to get more details or to schedule an appointment time.

Spend Winter Break in the UK

submitted by stoddard@augsburg.edu

Spend your winter break abroad! The short-term program, From Harry Potter to Brexit: Youth Culture and Social Change, is accepting applications. This 11-day, 4-credit course (WST 220) –which primarily takes place in London, England and Edinburgh, Scotland—will enable students to experience the connection between place and politics and to examine techniques of visual storytelling. While traveling through and between these two cities, you will learn about the ways that mediums like film, television, music, and cartooning have been utilized to craft progressive political messages. We will converse with academic experts and youth activists about the effect of gender, race, and nationality on 20th and 21st century British politics, with a particular focus on the contemporary crisis brought on by Brexit.

We will analyze the Harry Potter series of books and films as a specific case study that illustrates the possibilities of using pop culture toward progressive ends, examining the ways that it engages with contemporary and historical patterns in British history, such as nativist sentiment, sexist politics, and labor rights. Our visits to both real-world sites used in the film and to the Warner Brothers studio will demonstrate the ways that filmmakers use place to ground fantastical stories and to embed politicized messages. In addition to more traditional methods like taking field notes, we will also utilize social media throughout our trip in order to put into practice one of the central claims of this course—that social media can be an effective and essential mechanism of distributing peer-reviewed information in an accessible manner.
