Meanwhile, federal, state and local regulations governing temporary wetland crossings in southern New England have evolved; and requirements for the same project may vary by location. S W A M P T H I N G S will bring together regional experts in the fields of energy transmission management, wetland crossing construction and the various levels of environmental regulation to describe how wetland crossings are designed, permitted, constructed and restored. Manufacturers and suppliers of timber and composite mat systems will exhibit and promote their products as solutions to access issues.

Mary L. Cornille Lecture with Franoise Lionnet: "Literary Routes: Migration and the Creative Economy"
"In summer 2015, the media spotlight was trained daily on the accelerating crisis in the Mediterranean. Yet news reports and statistics have only routinized and depersonalized these disasters. As a humanist, I am more interested in the small narratives and significant details that give us the texture and fabric of human interactions in the contact zones of migratory flows. My presentation engages with the poetic and theatrical work of Soeuf Elbadawi, who reminds us that this crisis is a global phenomenon that reaches deep into the southwestern Indian Ocean and the Comoros archipelago, off the coast of East Africa, where Mayotte is the 5th overseas department of France. I will reflect on the way our analytical disciplines can contribute to a rethinking of the means of representation and dissemination of creative perspectives from the so-called ultraperipheries of Europe. What can literary critics do to enhance awareness of human rights issues and further epistemological equality? What is the critical effectiveness of literature in the world as agent of cultural change and how do we heighten appreciation for stories and storytelling, for the insatiable human desire to make sense of a chaotic world through narrative?" Franoise Lionnet is the Mary L. Cornille Distinguished Visiting Professor In the Humanities, Wellesley College, Prof. of Romance Languages and Literatures, Harvard University, UCLA Distinguished Professor, French and Francophone, Comparative Literature, and Gender Studies (on leave).

Dan Baird & Homemade Sin

Dan Baird formed The Georgia Satellites in 1980. Being the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and chief songwriter, he penned their runaway radio hit "Keep Your Hands to Yourself." They were one of the most ferocious bands of the 1980s. What set them apart from the other 100,000 bands who cranked their amps up to eleven was that their wild riffs and tanked up cries came from a band who, from the start, understood its place in the rock tradition and fought hard to solidify it with each recording. Dan left the band in 1990 to pioneer what became known as "Cowpunk" and "Alt Country." He tours and records with his band Homemade Sin, which today features two ex-members of The Georgia Satellites, Baird and drummer Mauro Magellan. Homemade Sin also includes guitarist Warner E. Hodges, who tours and records with Jason & the Scorchers. Dan & the band play a mixture of Baird's solo material plus the many hits and fan favorites from his years with the Georgia Satellites. They are, and always have been, one of the most fun and exciting bands out there hitting the clubs and halls of America.

"Dan Baird is the Savior of Rock 'n' Roll." - Hooked On Music

"It's been along time since people made albums as fun, as strong and as satisfying as this one." - Billboard

"Amazing songs delivered with gap toothed, shit kicking passion." - Classic Rock

These 75,000 American and Filipino prisoners of war were already tired, weak, and lacking food but were forced through the Luzon Island jungles with intense tropical heat. The march was from Mariveles, Bataan to San Fernando, Pampanga and involved over 5,000 casualties. This tragic event is now known as the Bataan Death March. The first memorial march was held in 1989 in New Mexico to honor those who suffered at the Bataan Death March. It is annually sponsored by the Army ROTC from New Mexico State University. Norwin JROTC Bataan Memorial March As the Norwin Air Force JROTC, we wish to hold a similar event to honor those who have sacrificed so much. This year our goal is to raise $5,000 for the Wounded Warriors Project in honor of our nation's veterans, especially those who participated in the Bataan Death March.
