Photographer J Henry Fair is best known for his Industrial Scars series, in which he researches our world's most egregious environmental disasters and creates images that are simultaneously stunning and horrifying. His photographs captivate audiences, as they more closely resemble abstract paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe and Jackson Pollock than the disturbing scenes of actual reality that they depict. Additionally, Mr. Fair's work travels around the world in fine art exhibitions at major museums, galleries, and educational institutions. Louis Massiah, the Executive Director of Scribe Video Center, located in West Philadelphia, has a history of working with Haverford and Swarthmore faculty and students in film and cultural studies.

For this residency, students worked with Massiah to understand the role of cinema in the diaspora. The crux of the residency was a documentary project about Massiah himself as the resident artist , and his work teaching students about documentary an cinema.

At Scribe, he has facilitated and executive produced over two hundred documentaries covering major issues and concerns facing urban communities. Massiah has also designed Precious Places Community History Project , a citywide oral history portrait that is composed of short documentaries produced with neighborhood organizations in Philadelphia and throughout the region.

This residency partnered education and music students with Play On, Philly , a local music education nonprofit targeting at-risk youth. Education students studied how the program worked, while music students engaged with participants of Play On, Philly. POP students were able to meet with college advisors, tour the campus, and sit in on classes. Play On, Philly!

POP is an innovative education and social initiative that provides opportunities for personal development to children through the study of music. Inspired by the social development and music education program of Venezuela called El Sistema, POP seeks to enrich the lives of Philadelphia youth by providing daily musical instruction in communities that have little access to music education. Established in at St. Francis de Sales School in West Philadelphia, POP started with youth, ages six to thirteen, with the goal of making a significant and sustaining impact on their lives. By expanding gradually, the program is able to stay flexible to curriculum adjustments and responsive to community needs.

We strive to engage the entire community through partnerships, community events, and a season of thirty performances in venues across the Philadelphia region. Judy Irving's residency had a particularly broad reach, touching students in political science, anthropology, filmmaking, and environmental studies. A documentary filmmaker noted for her work on environmental issues, she was able to speak both to the content of her work in films such as Dark Circle and The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill , as well as her techniques.

This was especially apparent when we screened a rough cut of a still in-process film, and gave students the opportunity to provide feedback. In addition, Irving and students from film courses at Swarthmore and Haverford visited the Schulykill Center for Environmental Education to explore the human relationship to nature and the perspective of the filmmaker.

Judy Irving is a Sundance-and-Emmy-Award-winning filmmaker whose previous credits include The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill , a feature documentary about the relationship between a homeless street musician and a flock of wild parrots in San Francisco, and Dark Circle , a feature documentary about the nuclear industry.

This particular residency represented our efforts to extend the residency model—as we envisioned it at the time—to its logical conclusion, and originated in a desire to build programming that exported themes being explored in the Cantor Fitzgerald Galleries exhibition Other People's Property , by conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas, to the campus and community at large.

Because the exhibition examined themes of race and commercialism, often in athletics, we developed panel discussions around the same issues. The first discussion consisted of a panel of academics, including experts in the history of race in sports, race in America, and race as it appears in marketing, and included Hank Willis Thomas. The second discussion involved actual sports practitioners to speak on the issue of race, sports, and commercialism.

For this panel, we invited a college athletics coach, a division I college athletic director, a professional sports agent, and a sports journalist.

Power and Control in the Imperial Valley examines the evolution of irrigated farming in the ImperialMexicali Valley, an arid desert straddling the California—Baja California border.

    Bisected by the international boundary line, the valley drew American investors determined to harness the nearby Colorado River to irrigate a million acres on both sides of the border. Colonization in the valley began with the construction of a sixty-mile aqueduct from the Colorado River in California through Mexico. Initially, Mexico held authority over water delivery until settlers persuaded Congress to construct the All-American Canal. Control over land and water formed the basis of commercial agriculture and in turn enabled growers to use the state to procure inexpensive, plentiful immigrant workers.

Following their rampage through Southeast Asia and the Pacific in the five months after Pearl Harbor, Japanese forces moved into the Solomon Islands, intending to cut off the critical American supply line to Australia.

    But when they began to construct an airfield on Guadalcanal in July , the Americans captured the almost completed airfield for their own strategic use. The Japanese Army countered by sending to Guadalcanal a reinforced battalion under the command of Col. Kiyonao Ichiki.

    McCloy mounted a sustained and vigorous campaign to establish a system of universal military training UMT in America. Fearful of repeating the rapid demobilization and severe budget cuts that had accompanied peace following World War I, these leaders saw UMT as the basis for their postwar plans. As a result, they promoted UMT extensively and aggressively. Taylor illustrates how army leaders failed to adapt their strategy to the political realities of the day and underscores the delicate balance in American democracy between civilian and military control of strategy. This story is vital because of the ultimate outcome of the failure of the UMT initiative: the birth of the Cold War draft.

Armed with a broad range of Mexican military documents and previously unknown US sources, Douglas Murphy provides the first balanced view of early battles such as Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma.

    He reassesses previously covered territory and also poses new questions. Why did Mexico establish its defenses south of the Rio Grande while claiming territory north of the river? In confronting these questions, Murphy shows that the campaign was a complex chess match with undercurrents of political intrigue, economic motivations, and personal animosities as much as military action.

Jennings New research and the discovery of multiple archaeological sites predating the established age of Clovis 13, years ago provide evidence that the Americas were first colonized at least one thousand to two thousand years before Clovis.

    These revelations indicate to researchers that the peopling of the Americas was perhaps a more complex process than previously thought. The Clovis culture remains the benchmark for chronological, technological, and adaptive comparisons in research on peopling of the Americas.

    The contributing authors presented earlier versions of these chapters at the Clovis: Current Perspectives on Chronology, Technology, and Adaptations symposium held at the Society for American Archaeology meetings in Sacramento, California. In seventeen chapters, the researchers provide their current perspectives of the Clovis archaeological record as they address the question: What is and what is not Clovis?

    Lepper, Dennis Stanford, and Michael R. Edited by Kelly E. Graf, Caroline V. Ketron, and Michael R. Waters As research continues on the earliest migration of modern humans into North and South America, the current state of knowledge about these first Americans is continually evolving. Especially with recent advances in human genomic studies, both of living populations and ancient skeletal remains, new light is being shed in the ongoing quest toward understanding the full complexity and timing of prehistoric migration patterns.

    Providing an up-to-date view of the current state of knowledge in paleoamerican studies, the research gathered in this volume, presented by leaders in the field, focuses especially on late Pleistocene Northeast Asia, Beringia, and North and South America, as well as dispersal routes, molecular genetics, and Clovis and pre-Clovis archaeology. Growing up, we typically spend more time with our brothers and sisters than we do with our parents. In an age of divorce, mobility, and alienation, the sibling bond is often the only one that really lasts.

    War: A Primer for Christians provides a concise introduction to the main approaches that Christians have taken toward war and examines each approach critically. Given that brothers and sisters are such a fundamental aspect of human existence, it is remarkable that they have received so little in-depth attention in the field of psychology. Some Christians have supported their country's wars as crusades of good against evil. Others, as pacifists, have rejected participation in or support for any war. Still others have followed the just-war tradition in holding that it can be justifiable under some conditions to resort to war, but that then Christian love must limit the conduct of war.

    Abramovitch looks at the developmental sequence in the sibling relationship as brothers or sisters struggle to find their place with each other, concluding with a very personal account of his own relationship with his brother and sister.
