crossettlibrary: We were recently reviewing some old course catalogs for Bennington College. It’s interesting to look back sometimes at what was being taught in the 40s and 50s. But a related search is to see WHO was teaching these courses at that time. Bennington College has always been blessed with leaders in… A tidbit of some of the cool courses and professors that were stirring...

I stumbled across an excellent monologue written by Julia Mounsey ‘13, whose ideas inspired what would later become the script. It’s not often that student inspired work becomes one of the...
Going through the dusty annals of my flash drive I came across a few old files, one of which turned out to be a recording of a read through of a pilot my friends had written over Field Work Term.
