When the reconstruction of Lovell Hall was first announced, Sustainability Board (SusBo) heads Ingrid Slattery ’23 and Joy Xu ’23 and Energy subcommittee heads Anika Madan ’24 and Alix Rawald ’24 drafted a sustainability proposal for the new building.
This term, Hopkins Diversity Board (DivBo) members Harini Thiruvengadam ’23, Nia Lampley ’24, and Ishani Vallabhajosyula ’24 interviewed several of the female teachers in the science department to gain insight into what it is like to be a woman in a male-dominated field. By conducting these interviews, DivBo hopes to spread awareness, empower women in STEM fields, and help readers get to know their science teachers a bit better.
I recently watched the 1962 French New Wave film Jules et Jim. The movie follows the friendship between two men, Jules and Jim, and the woman who enters their lives, Catherine. Immediately, Catherine’s commanding presence, free-will, and bravado captured me. But even more so, I was drawn to her overt disregard of gender norms and her challenge to traditional femininity.
RealTalk and the Razor are collaborating to create a space in the Razor for community members to share a short reflection that highlights any aspect of their identity or experience. We hope this platform will promote discussions on campus that lead to powerful conversations and create meaningful change. Entries are not meant to be long essays, but rather written or artistic work on a topic of our choice. Submissions for the RealTalk x Razor Collab will be considered separately from the RealTalk Speaker Series submissions. Submissions will be reviewed by a small group of RealTalk and Razor members, who may reach out to you for clarification or to workshop your submission as needed. You may choose to submit you work to be published anonymously or have your name published alongside your entry. Submit through this link.
