Coming Up: Nuestra Señora de las Nubes

Nuestra Señora de las Nubes: Our Lady of the Clouds


By Argentine playwright Arístides Vargas, co-directed by Cora Ceppi and Estela

Memory plays with oblivion, losing itself in rediscovery, but also farewells.
Against a backdrop where time and space are blurred, two exiles meet and then meet
again, as if they had never been apart. Always trying to remember, they struggle, as
though remembering itself might revivify their common past. The one they have left
behind forever in their hometown Nuestra Señora de las Nubes.

In Spanish, with notes in English.


when: November 30 and December 1, 8:00 pm

M.I.S.C presents…The Identity Project

From Arielle Petrovich, 2014:

The Identity Project is a photo project and exhibition loosely based off of Kip Fulbeck’s “Hapa Project,” in which he traveled around the country photographing Americans of mixed Asian descent and asked them to define WHO they are in their own words. This moving photography project
provided a space for individuals who might otherwise be “boxed in” by racial and ethnic categories to challenge those same categories and vocalize what their identity means to them.

This is our second annual presentation of the Identity Project! In our version, Multiethnic Interracial Smith College (MISC) has extended this project to ALL members of the Smith community, and hopes that the Identity Project will be an annual forum for students, faculty and staff to self-identify and critically think about what IDENTITY means.
If you’re interested in becoming involved or participating in the
Identity Project next year, please email We encourage
people from all racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds to participate.

SmithDailyJolt: A Resurrection

I never thought this day would come, but when I caught wind of an interesting Twitter user following the Smith’d handle, it was true: the ghost has risen.

That sounds melodramatic, but I don’t think there’s any other way to reintroduce The Daily Jolt into the Smith community. A lot of you either never heard of or never got to experience the presence of the Jolt at Smith College, so I’ll compare it to something you DO know: The ACB.

The ACB was an anonymous (sometimes not-so-anonymous) Gossip Girl-esque website that provided an open forum for college students to talk shit about one another.  The implied purpose of such a platform was an “I love to hate, but hate to love” aesthetic, where even students who found the site insidious managed to read and absorb the latest Smith College ACB content.

Things You Don’t Need: Lady GaGa Fetus Pendant

Yes, you heard right. This etsy shop sells fetus pendants in the form of various celebrities, including the Lady herself. From the seller:

“Feti is just for fun, no political statements being made here.
How many times have you seen “Baby’s First ____” gifts?
Feti is a step ahead with special gifts for the expectant mom or dad. “

I’m finding it pretty hard to believe that there is no political statement here (“abortion kills future pop stars!” they will chant) but if you just think of it as Lady Gaga when she was a fetus it has potential for delightful weirdness.

Christmas/Hannukah/Festivus is coming up…so why not give those expectant parents in your life something they will really cherish? Something that is so beyond bizarre that I’m still having trouble wrapping my head around it? This holiday season, give the gift that confuses.
