Yalies in DC Theater - AN ILIAD

 

Conor Bagley '16 and Iason Togias '16 invite all DC area alumni to their performance of AN ILIAD at Atlas Performing Arts Center at 1333 H St NE May 31-June 9.

 

 

"It's an amazing play which is very much in line with Yale's Directed Studies Program and its commitment to the arts. It's a modern, one-man retelling of Homer's epic poem set to music by a live musician playing double bass. I think many Yale alumni in DC would be interested in our production, not least of all because the two main artists developing it are DC-born Yalies. Here's the link to our website for some more info: www.aniliaddc.com"

 


 

 

Scott W. Stern - The Trials of Nina McCall: Sex, Surveillance, and the Decades-Long Government Plan to Imprison "Promiscuous" Women

Join Scott W. Stern (Branford 2015, Yale Law School 2020) for an event on his book tour, where he'll be speaking about his new book, The Trials of Nina McCall: Sex, Surveillance, and the Decades-Long Government Plan to Imprison Promiscuous Women. The nonfiction book is about the American Plan, one of the largest and longest-lasting mass quarantines in American history. As Scott details, throughout the twentieth century, the United States government imprisoned tens, probably hundreds, of thousands of women and girls without due process - simply because officials suspected these women had sexually transmitted infections. Scott's book hits shelves on May 15, and it has already been optioned for feature film by Oscar-winning producer (and Yale alumna) Cathy Schulman.
