Happy Valentine’s Day! Love, the Campus Current.

February 13th, 2012

Tomorrow, February 14th, from 5-6 pm, tune in with your sweetie to the Campus Current. We’ll be talking about Radical Love: Taking Back Valentine’s Day, which was the theme of the Annual Religious and Spiritual Life Day last week. We’ll also be speaking to some of the cast of the Vagina Monologues and discuss both the play and the V-Day Movement. We’ll also hear from Linda Nochlin, Vassar Class of ’51 and Art History Professor from 1952 to 1980. She’ll be discussing her feminist art historical perspective and her seminal essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists” as well as her upcoming book on Gericault.

Pop open a box of candy hearts and get your fill of campus news! Tomorrow 5-6pm on WVKR.

New Queer Talk Show Added to our Schedule

November 13th, 2011

Another news show joins the WVKR line-up, this one coming all the way from Vermont. Ken Schneck, Dean of Students at Marlboro College, has put together an incredible program focusing on gay news, views, and culture. While working in an art museum in Southern Vermont last summer, I had the opportunity to meet Ken when he moderated a discussion after an Independent Lens screening of Two Spirits. Ken shared his own past with queer activism and education, and nimbly and impressively guided a conversation that grappled with questions of queer existence and identity. I hope you all take the opportunity to tune into “This Show is So Gay” on Mondays at 5pm, where you can listen to the program that originally aired the previous Thursday on WVEW 107.7 Brattleboro, Vermont.  We’re happy to have “This Show is So Gay” on WVKR and we hope you enjoy!
