Maria João Petisca and Cantonese lacquerware: A study of Chinese culture and Portuguese activity

April 15 marked the start of Global Chinese Week, a series co-hosted by Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library with the university’s Asian Studies program. Maria João Petisca from Portugal presented a lecture both on Zoom and at Old College called, “Cantonese Lacquerware: Global Travels of the Gilded Objects made for Export”

Queer art and representation at the university

The university’s programming board hosted an event with drag queens Alyssa Edwards and Shea Couleé. Many students were excited to hear that they were coming to perform on campus but also believe the university can do more for queer appreciation.

The challenge of Black representation among university professors and academic spaces

Although the university prides itself on diversity, equity and inclusion, the racial makeup of the university's faculty lacks diversity, with only a small percentage of the faculty being of color and an even smaller percent being African American. Assistant professor at the university, Délice Williams, comments on this gap and touches on the holistic importance of Black educators and representation.
