First Middle Eastern Perspectives Meeting

perspectivesFrom the incredible Rajaa Elidrissi ’16:

Come join us for our first meeting of the year!

Our group’s goal is to create a comfortable and safe space for people who identify as Middle Eastern, Arab, Persian, Turkish, and etc. We also want members that do not identify as Middle Eastern, but who are interested in learning more about the region and its people to participate as well. We want to provide a view of the region that is not tarnished by western media. Topics of discussion will include identity, religion, intersectionality, feminism, media perceptions, gender roles, and etc.

We are also part of the Student of Color Coalition and we want to collaborate with as many SOC groups as possible this year!

Date: Wednesday, September 23
Time:8:30-9:30 PM

“______ Fall Back”: On Concert Culture, Moshing and (Un)Safe Spaces

Almost three years ago exactly, I showed up to my first Eclectic concert, as a wide-eyed, naive pre-frosh, a total stranger to the “college music scene.” There was loud, thrashy music coming from the ballroom, where a small crowd was gathered. While dancing wildly around with all these strange older cool college kids, I thought to myself, “Wow! I am actually doing this. I am a skinny, lanky dude moshing! And it feels great! And I should totally come here and do this more!” And the rest was, as they say, history.
