The Laramie Project: 11 years later—The Laramie Project will take the stage at Birmingham-Southern Oct 6-10 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 11 at 2:30 p.m. at the College Theatre. This award-winning play is based on more than 200 interviews with the people of Laramie, Wyo., as they reflect on the aftermath of the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard. Pictured are three of BSC's 12-member student cast ensemble (from left): Jasha Vaughn, a sophomore musical theatre major from Jasper, who portrays Marge; Ethan Hamm, a freshman musical theatre major from Adamsville, who plays the role of Greg; and Anna Rose MacArthur, a sophomore theatre arts major from Chattanooga, Tenn., who portrays Allison. The play's writers are Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project. The production is being directed by Professor of Theatre Alan Litsey and junior theatre major John McGinnis of Grayson Valley. Chelsie Miller, a junior musical theatre major from Shannon, is the costume designer.

Food for thought—Birmingham-Southern recently debuted its new Dialogue Series, a yearlong, cross-disciplinary discussion on a single topic. This fall, the focus is Dialogue on Food, featuring presentations and seminars that range from healthy and sustainable food issues to hunger concerns to public health. The Sept. 22 presentation “Pre-Historic Tacos: The Origin of Tortillas” was led by Dr. Bill Nicholas, James A. Wood Professor of History at BSC. Students enjoyed learning about the origins of tortillas while making their own. Shown (from left to right) are Mallu Divakaran, Callie McGrath, Nicholas, Max Rossmeis (an international student from Germany), Laura Moore, and Liz Blake.
