Stevens Next Speaker in Faculty Lecture Series
Mitchell Stevens, Associate Professor of Sociology, will discuss "Community and Bureaucracy at Hamilton," as the next speaker in the Faculty Lecture Series, on Friday, Nov. 15, at 4:10 p.m., in the Red Pit at Kirner-Johnson. Stevens explains, "'Community'" is the wrong referent image for organizational life at Hamilton. The frequent invocation of "'community'" in organizational discourse abets rather than diminishes campus problems. The College is better understood as a bureaucracy," says Stevens. "Once relieved of its unsavory affective baggage, bureaucracy is a useful lens for assessing some of the College's chronic troubles and greatest strengths." The lecture is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty. A reception will follow at Café Opus. More ...

Li Interviewed Twice on MSNBC

Li said, “Evidence suggests that Hu (Jintau, the new Communist party boss) and Zeng (Quihong the old party organizer) have formed a relationship that is both competitive and cooperative.” Also, Li commented on how Jiang Zemin, China’s president, handled the recent discovery of a photograph taken at the Tianneman Square protests, two weeks before the infamous Massacre, picturing Wen Jiabo, the new Chinese premier, trying to appease student dissenters. Li stated, “Jiang certainly saw the picture and the rumours said that he was actually impressed by the way Wen handled the situation.” More ...
