Wild and witty 'West of Central' gets a stylish premiere at Pillsbury House in Minneapolis | Star Tribune | September 19, 2018
The principal performers do lovely work. Tack-sharp and self-assured, Austene Van packs heat. She’s well matched with (Theatre and Dance professor) Harry Waters Jr. playing an enigmatic man with whom Thelma thought she had a natural bond. Vernon (Waters Jr. ) operates on many planes at once and Waters cultivates a sense of mystery. Stephan Yoakam '75, known for playing Shakespearean monarchs, brings gravitas to his role as a genial Machiavelli who may reward someone — or kill them. One more Macalester connection - the play is at Pillsbury House Theatre where the Co-Artistic Producing Director is Faye Price '77. The play ends October 14.

Exploring Fairytales: My Father's Legacy | The Loft | September 12, 2018
Classics Professor Wessam Elmeligi posted an essay to the Loft Literary Center website titled, "Exploring Fairytales: My Father's Legacy," about the experience during his summer visit to his hometown, Alexandria, Egypt, where he rediscovered children's books written and illustrated by his father from the 1950s to the 1970s. The books reflected the transition Egypt and many countries in the MENA region were going through and the role that ancient history and mythology played in defining his father's generation.

Are protests in Africa politically or economically motivated? This new book has answers | Washington Post | August 24, 2018
Review of “Political Protest in Contemporary Africa,” a new book by Political Science professor Lisa Mueller, coming out this fall. Mueller’s study of protests in Africa shows that there are two forces driving them: political grievances among the middle class and material grievances among the poor. She argues that political grievances largely determine when protests will occur, while material grievances largely explain who is likely to participate in the protests.

4 new books from Minnesota authors that plumb emotional depths | Pioneer Press | August 5, 2018
One of the four books, “Tales of Love and Despair: Men in Love In Revolutionary Iran,” was written by the late Macalester Sociology professor Mahnaz Kousha (Self-published, $9.99), who died last October. “I knew they shared more with me than if I were male,” she wrote. “They saw me more as a therapist or counselor than as a sociologist. I, however, found their silences potent, pregnant with deep-felt introspection and emotions.”

Good Question: What Causes Sinkholes To Open Up? | WCCO-TV | July 30, 2018
Earlier this summer, part of Kellogg Boulevard in St. Paul crumbled. Sinkholes can be caused by a number of different things. So, what causes the ground to open up? “In all cases, it’s material being removed from underground and then the surface collapsing in,” said Anna Lindquist, a visiting professor of Geology at Macalester.
