Comedians. Cast out of the Harvard Bubble. World Leaders. Cast out of the White House... Bubble.
Big acts... Small acts. Depends on your laptop size. In the words of Big Joe... "Zoom, Baby."
NEW ACTS ANNOUNCED!
PROCEEDS BENEFIT THE HARVARD SQUARE HOMELESS SHELTER!
Kiese Laymon will talk with Courtney R. Baker about whether the actual histories of American colleges and universities should be ripe sites for Black American horror and comedic narratives. Laymon will create a live novella and a live essay during this talk, while questioning the ethics of making art “for” an audience longing for both titillation and innocence from the horrific histories of Black Americans in and around American institutions of higher learning.
Kiese Laymon, 2020–2021 William and Flora Hewlett Foundation Fellow, Radcliffe Institute, and Hubert H. McAlexander Professor of English and Creative Writing, University of Mississippi
Courtney R. Baker, HR '96, associate professor, Department of English, University of California, Riverside

Harvardwood student members:
Today, the application opens for our first Virtual Harvardwood 101 Program! The application will close October 18th, 2020.
The Harvardwood 101 career exploration program provides a series of career-related activities in order to demystify Hollywood and educate undergraduates about careers in the entertainment industry. The program began in 2003 and is cosponsored by Harvard University's Office for the Arts and the Office of Career Services.
This program is open to all current Harvard College students who are Full Members of Harvardwood. Students do not have to demonstrate prior experience in the arts, media, and entertainment—just a genuine interest in pursuing a career in one (or more!) of those fields!
Due to the virtual nature of the program, there may be more spaces available than in a typical year. However, 101 slots fill up quickly, so please get your application in as soon as possible!
