I am always being watched. Maybe you can relate — you know those days when the perky girl on your...

There are many wonderful things we can, and often do, say about Middlebury students.

From Iran to Egypt, from Yemen to Libya, from Morocco to China and from Senegal to the United States citizens have spilled into the streets, surrounded government buildings  and choked public squares, holding signs and shouting — hoping that their combined presence and united voices will change their...

March 10, 2011

Lately, I’ve been taking a class on social movements; civil rights, farm workers unions, peaceful uprisings in the Middle East — you name it. And while I have learned that there is no way to explain these powerful events as a whole — each is unprecedented in its own way — some key components...
