The Women's Studies Program Fourth Fall Lecture Series Presentation
The Women's Studies Program Fourth Fall Lecture Series presents "Gender and Maintenance: Chinese Temple Practice in the Nineteenth Century" by William C. Wooldridge, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of History. 
Chinese religious practices centered around temples: physical structures that offered proximity to gods as well as space for communal activities.  Yet temples required maintenance; their terracotta could snap or crumble, their rafters crack or collapse; their walls degrade or tumble.  Temple leaders often described repairs as a means of honoring the gods housed in the temple.  Because maintenance involved designated activities at regular intervals, ultimately to benefit gods, maintenance often overlapped with ritual.  Using stele inscriptions, temple records and archives from several sites in nineteenth-century China, this paper uses maintenance as a way to show how men and women interacted to create temple community.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

“What fools these mortals be!” 

Lehman's Theatre and Dance Program will stage a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream, an iconic comedy of love both sought and unsought, where the mortal and supernatural collide, combine, and connect for amorous adventures.

This multimedia production features a cast of nine performers in over 20 different roles. The production focuses on the notion of dreams and transformation of characters as they move from the worlds of working class craftspeople, a Duke and Duchess's court that is rooted in Greek and Amazonian mythology, and the world of the “Fairies” whose very existence is both magical and fantastical.

The audience will get to see what usually takes place behind the scenes. The actors, who have been preparing for the past three months, take on multiple roles and have been working in the physical performance training style of Jacques Lecoq. Through movement and voice transformations, audiences will see the “translation” of one character to the next in real time. In the Elizabethan vein our actors not only transform characters, but gender roles and examine the very nature of what we call “male” and “female,” as we see that love truly is in the eye (and imagination) of the beholder.

This production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream welcomes the audience into a theatrical dreamscape that embraces the magic of what live theatre does best: letting us enter a world that has its own rules and realities like dreams; like love itself.
