Interim Term 2006
Birmingham-Southern students are once again spending January involved in service-learning, study, and internships locally, nationally, and internationally as part of the college's Interim term. Below are photographs from two of the many innovative courses under way.
It's “Show Time”!—With less than a week until opening night, the Birmingham-Southern student cast of Dollhouse is immersed in rehearsals. The production and performance of acclaimed playwright and BSC alumna Rebecca Gilman's most recent work is taking place during the Interim term. Performances open Jan. 26 and run through Jan. 29 in the BSC College Theatre/Mainstage. Student members of the cast and crew have worked daily building sets, creating costumes, designing lighting and sound, and rehearsing. Cast members (from left) Ben Whitfield, Martin Landry, and Lily Palmer rehearse an intense scene from the play.
Serving hurricane victims—Several of the students participating in the college's Katrina Recovery Interim take a quick break from their work in Bayou La Batre, Ala., where they are removing debris, helping with construction, and distributing food in the storm-damaged area. Some 29 students and five faculty and staff are spending three weeks assisting recovery efforts in that area as well as Ocean Springs, Miss., in addition to class time on campus learning about the disaster through readings, lectures, discussions, and compiling journals.
