Award-winning poets Joan Larkin and Robert Hershon read a selection of their work last week at an event organized by Visiting Assistant Professor of English Thomas Devaney and sponsored by creative writing programs at Haverford College, Swarthmore College, and the Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities.
New festive events hosted by the Haverford College Arboretum celebrated fall and Halloween on campus.
Associate Professor of Philosophy Jerry Miller and former Haverford philosopher Richard Bernstein discussed the philosophical underpinnings of scapegoating and structural violence prior to the Haverford-Bryn Mawr Chorale and Chorale Orchestra’s performance of Michael Tippett’s 1942 oratorio “A Child of Our Time.”
Haverford’s third annual Public Policy Forum invited alumni back to campus to share their experiences from working in different areas of policy, from education and the environment to healthcare and local government.
This year’s Family and Friends Weekend, which welcomed hundreds of our students’ relatives to campus, was themed around issues of environmentalism and sustainability. It also served as a homecoming weekend for our youngest alumni.
