Hermes Activism Timeline

The 35th anniversary issue of the Hermes is out, as is a nifty poster-sized timeline of Wesleyan activism since the sixties. Get a copy of both/either at your local pile of Hermes’s (they’re everywhere)!

The HERMES student publishing collective wants to let you know that our February issue is a special one. The Wesleyan Activism Timeline is something that HERMES editors have been compiling since the sixties, and is traditionally published in the pages of our magazine.

This year, on the eve of HERMES’s 35th anniversary, we’ve decided to publish this important document in poster form– for you to hang in your dorms, woodframes, offices, and residence halls, to spark reflection, ideas, and conversation about the lengthy, inspiring (and at times ridiculous) history of activism at Wesleyan.

Take a poster, save it, give one to your favorite prof. and oh yeah, don’t forget to read the actual magazine too!

Additionally, you might consider taking a personal stand against generational apathy by joining Hermes yourself:

***The HERMES publishing collective is going to shrink drastically after ’09 graduates. If you want to get involved in the freeform, alternative publishing project that is HERMES, come to our meeting this SATURDAY, FEB 14th, at 2 P.M. at our office, 2nd floor of 190 high street (student bldg btwn beta and eclectic) to get to know us and get involved.***

Date: Saturday, February 14th
Time: 2 pm
Place: Hermes office, 2nd floor of 190 High St. (b/t Beta and Eclectic)

    No, I really don’t have the time to be proactive. Stating my opinion took maybe five minutes, which is a far cry from the few hours (at the very least) I’d need to put in to make a tangible difference myself. That’s time that would be coming from projects I’m already involved in.

    Having read some of the current Hermes, my only question is why.Why would you ever set an entire spread in bold italics.Why would you ever then right align all of the body text in that spread?Why would you render an entire spread essentially unreadable?
