CARLTOGRAPHY

For centuries, humans have attempted to translate the mental and physical attributes of our surroundings into tangible representations of the world. In this process of map-making, or cartography, we inevitably encounter a set of questions: how do you define the purpose of the map? How do you decide on the characteristics that will serve your purpose, carefully orchestrating the elements of the map to convey its message to its audience? How do you accomplish simplicity without losing accuracy? In many ways, these questions highlight the intimacy and complexity of cartography; they tell us that maps from the past and present not only reflect human perceptions of physical spaces, but also reflect intimate narratives of a highly personal and creative process. Thus we believe that maps are more about their makers than the places they describe. We present to you Carltography, an organization explores the world through the art of map making. Our purpose is to provide a creative forum for cartographers at Carleton. However, anyone is invited to attend: this club will serve Carleton community members who have an interest in cartography, and more broadly, in the richness of the Carleton community and the world as a whole. Our organization will be a forum for sharing experiences and perspectives of the past, present and the future. We will have regular gatherings, during which we will work on one or more term-long mapping projects. The maps will range from the local to the global, from the mundane to the extraordinary, from shallow to intimate. All of our projects will be shared with the Carleton community, either as art exhibitions or as publications, which will foster a sense of connection with our immediate and distant surroundings.

Dialogue on Education at Carleton (Dialogue)

Should our professors be invested in our development as human beings? What does it mean to develop as a human being? As it's meant here, development is something akin to the process of forming habits, beliefs, values, and characteristics that in themselves are conducive to well-being and equanimity. Because such development seems of a fundamentally different nature than the acquisition of knowledge and skill sets, whether this specific kind of education should be a part of our learning here in a classroom setting is not by any means clear. Because this is an issue that concerns what we are doing here as a liberal arts college, it seems important for us to reach (greater) consensus on. The goal of Dialogue is to bring about greater clarity on this issue of precisely the kind of edifying effect the things we do in our (humanistically-oriented) classes are meant to have on us by facilitating open and fair-minded in regards to this question. As of Spring 2011, Dialogue will be hosting weekly discussions and campus events (so far talks, panel discussions, and dinners), releasing a publication of relevant essays by students, and performing a (somewhat) informal survey of professors and students in regards to our main line of inquiry, among other things (including a small proposal for an optional supplement applying to all the school's curricula).

Fluxus Festivus

The Fluxus performance art movement began in the early 1960s, largely inspired by the compositions of John Cage and the art of Marcel Duchamp. Its goal was to bring heightened awareness and contemplation to the bits of art in our everyday life through the performance of absurd actions that call into question the ways in which we interact with the world around us. Performances are described in succinct, often cryptic 'event scores'(such as Ben Vautier's Wet in which "Performers throw wet objects into the audience") that in their absurdity convey humor, liberation, and a wonderful feeling of purposelessness. More than the events, however, Fluxus is about ceasing to be a passive viewer to one's own life. It is actively contemplating the objects, sounds, feelings, people and actions that constantly surround us and that we often take for granted.

The Lens

The Lens is a nationally distributed magazine featuring high quality interdisciplinary writing. Our target audience is students and faculty at the undergraduate level. Similar publications in terms of content and design include The New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine. We plan to distribute two issues during the school year. Typical articles are three to four pages in length double-spaced and emphasize analysis and/or research. We look to investigate national issues as well as explore problems and insights that are specific to the Carleton community. Articles in The Lens attempt to burst the “Carleton bubble,” connecting our campus to the outside world.' The Lens fills a specific need on campus and does not intended to compete with The Carletonian or other campus publications. To our knowledge, there does not exist another nationally distributed undergraduate magazine of politics and culture. Our bi-yearly publication also allows for a long, focused editorial process, giving writers, editors and designers the opportunity to plunge in-depth into long form journalism. This kind of editing and writing is unique for Carleton publications and we believe that Carleton students want to read and produce it.

Meetings: Each team (design, content, and business) meets on a different schedule throughout the term.
