Consumer Culture In Historical Perspective

HUM1077
4.00
Intermediate
View

This course traces the emergence and development of a consumer oriented culture in the United States from the end of the nineteenth century to the present. We will explore the relationship between consumer culture and democracy, between places of consumption and places of production (leisure and work), between consumer goods and activities and issues of social identity, particularly relating to gender, class and race. We will also pay attention to movements and organizations which have resisted or challenged aspects of a dominant consumer culture. By the end of the course students should have an understanding of the history of consumer culture in its related economic, political, social and cultural dimensions and an ability to read critically the messages and structures of contemporary consumer society. The class is designed to allow students to pursue particular research interests throughout the semester.

Introduction to Sociocultural Anthropologypublic

SSC573
4.00
Introductory
Rebekah Park
View

This is an introductory course to socio-cultural anthropology that provides a general intellectual history of the discipline.  The course reviews research methods and analyzes the study of culture in terms of production and critique.  This class is not meant to survey the entire field but instead aims to introduce students to basic anthropological theoretical orientations and to the importance of long-term ethnography. As such, we will read contemporary articles from leading anthropology journals and full-length ethnographies, as well as excerpts of key canonical texts, in the course to gain a better understanding of what is anthropology and how it is written.  This class will explore concepts including kinship, power, race, exchange, cultural relativism, globalization, and political economy.  Paramount to this class is the understanding that culture is a dynamic, complicated, and context-dependent concept; it is not a fixed or bounded “thing” of peoples and places. Throughout, we will employ a comparative perspective as socio-cultural anthropology rests upon this fundamental goal of making the familiar strange, and the strange familiar. While this class may engage in cross-cultural comparisons, students are also expected to draw connections between groups of people across time and space. Prerequisite: None

Social Sufferingpublic

Rebekah Park
View

This seminar will first examine a range of bearable and unbearable forms of suffering, including: war, poverty, disease, insecurity, political violence, and natural disasters. Within medical anthropology, social suffering has become an important subject of anthropological inquiry whereby ethnographers record everyday forms of suffering within communities and amongst individuals in various societies. Juxtaposing ordinary suffering of everyday life against the sudden eruption of extraordinary suffering, this seminar examines various modes of explanation, experience, humanitarianism and ethics. Some of the questions this seminar will pose include: what should ethnographers do with the disciplinary practice of cultural relativism in a world of great suffering? Is “witnessing the inhuman” enough, or do anthropologists have an obligation to help end human suffering? What is the ethical role of anthropologists in the face of human suffering? If anthropologists intervene, what assumptions of authority, power and inequality are embedded in such efforts? Additionally, this course will also require students to consider how communities and individuals survive mass violence, poverty, and “ordinary” forms of suffering or human deprivation.  Prerequisite: Familiarity with social science research

    Creating Views: Design & Display from the Invention of the Museum to Todaypublic

    HUM2337
    4.00
    Intermediate
    View

    The museum seems to be a uniquely modern institution. A place where works of art, identified as such by trained experts, are displayed for the most part outside of the original context of their making and use. Through this process these same works gain new meaning and new identities. They become representative of cultures and peoples of the past, a past that is processed, defined and sometimes created by the display itself. This class takes a critical approach to museum exhibits, to collecting and to the classification of cultures and art that goes on in curatorial studies today. Our approach will look across cultures to understand not just how display creates meaning and provides a framework for interpretation of works of art, but for the cultures that those works come to represent. This class is designed to develop the following key skills: collaboration, global competence, creativity in expression and problem solving and network and information literacy. In addition, of course, you will learn something of the history of museum display, art historical methods and practices, and issues of design and viewing that are key to the museum experience. Prerequisite: None

    Biochemists used to debate the nature of proteins: their composition, structure, and function. Now we know many extraordinary details of the shapes of proteins and how they function. For example, how they help our bodies acquire nutrients from food, use those nutrients for fuel, and carry oxygen to our tissues. In particular, researchers have revealed the intricacies of how a protein’s structure is related to its function. In this course we will employ an evolutionary perspective as we discuss major topics such as amino acids, proteins and protein structure, bioenergetics, enzymes and enzyme function. We will also study major metabolic pathways and their key control points. Our goals are for you to develop a thorough understanding of how enzymes work and to be familiar with key metabolic pathways and how they are controlled.

    This laboratory will be an introduction to techniques commonly used by biochemists, and must be taken in conjunction with Biochemistry of the Cell. Your work in the laboratory will focus on a semester-long investigation of an enzyme. This project will allow you to perform your own biochemistry research project in which you will employ the principles of chemistry and biochemistry that we study in the classroom.

    The protein you will investigate is already well-characterized. That is, previous research has described in detail the properties of the enzyme. Your goal is to determine if the enzyme you isolate is the same as that described in the primary literature. To answer this question we will begin with basic laboratory procedures such as preparing reagents, chromatography, and performing a protein assay. We will then explore techniques for studying the activity of enzymes, and methods for separating proteins, such as one and two-dimensional electrophoresis. Finally we will employ immunochemical methods for the identification of proteins. Throughout this semester-long project you will also learn about the procedures for data acquisition and analysis that will allow you to draw meaningful conclusions from your results.

    Chemistry has a rich history, including ancient theories on the nature of matter and recipes for converting lead into gold. Modern research and applications are equally exciting. For example, models of chemical bonds explain why carbon dioxide and methane are greenhouse gases, and some of the colors we see in the Aurora Borealis. We will explore these topics as we learn about atomic structure and the periodic table, reaction stoichiometry, chemical bonds, molecular structure, and other concepts central to modern chemistry. Many of these topics are related to current health and environmental issues. For example, discussions of pH and reduction-oxidation reactions include research on the natural chemistry of surface waters and the effects of acid rain on aquatic organisms.

    View

    In this class, students will explore both the art and the craft of making dances (in the modern dance tradition). Responding to specific assignments, students will create a number of dances throughout the semester, bringing a new draft to class each week. Class sessions will focus on viewing and discussing students' work, and on exploring tools for the creative process and ideas about composition.  Attention will be given to learning how to give and receive choreographic feedback, and to editing and developing existing choreography. In addition, students will study the choreographic methods of other artists through viewing videos and reading texts. This course will require students to work independently and commit a substantial amount of time outside of class to the completion of choreographic studies. Students will present their final projects in an end of the semester showing. This course may be repeated for credit; assignments, readings, and special topics will differ each semester.

    View

    In this course, we will develop expansive, articulate and expressive dancing in a contemporary release-based idiom. Along the way, we will dip our toes into several conceptual frameworks that have developed out of Labanotation  -- including, but not limited to motif notation -- and use those tools to sharpen our physical practice, generate ideas for choreography and help us remember sequences. Each class will begin with warm up exercises designed to fine-tune proprioception, improve dynamic alignment and build strength. Center and traveling phrase work will provide ample opportunities to play with space and gravity. The repertory component will evolve out of class work, and will involve students in creating, learning and performing an original work.  In addition to improvisation and rigorous technical training in the dance classroom, students will be expected to write and to generate material from written scores outside of class-time.

    Prerequisite: Prior dance experience and permission of the instructor

    Is capitalism good at meeting human needs? The “Great Recession of 2008” called attention to the inadequacies of the current economic system, as the world entered a period of economic crisis marked by negative and/or slow growth, high unemployment, increasing inequality, and dysfunctional financial systems that persist today. By framing the problems of capitalism in distributional terms as the system’s inability to meet the needs of the majority while benefiting the few, supporters of the Occupy Wall Street movement and others have generated much public discourse on the possibility of building a more just and sustainable economic system. In this introductory course, we will examine and imagine alternative systems. In order to do so, we will spend a good deal of time grounding our critique in an understanding of the current economic system. If an economic system is a network of social relationships governing the production and distribution of goods and services in a society, we may ask: How do these relationships develop under capitalism? How have they changed over time, and why? Who benefits, who pays, and who decides? The first part of the course will contextualize our study of capitalism, as we turn to economic history and the history of economic ideas to learn about economic systems that have preceded it and economic thinkers that have theorized about it. In the second part of the course, we will assess the merits and problems of capitalism as a system for producing and distributing goods and services, paying particular attention to the current recession. Our assessment will include perspectives based on issues of ecology and class-, race-, gender-based inequality. In the last part of the course, we will study, design, and critique some economic alternatives.

    This course is designed to facilitate learning and critical analysis of how Africans revisit and treat their colonial past. In that regard, the course surveys different issues in order to acquaint students with Africa’s colonial past and the bearing of that legacy on its present and future. Those surveyed issues include violence, Africans’ portrayal by Westerners, the impact of colonialism on local communities (identity, education, language, social organization) and the present-day relationships between African countries and France. From the 1930s Hollywood movies like Tarzan and King Solomon’s Mines to African productions such as The Gods Must be Crazy or Identity Pieces, films are selected across historical and geographical boundaries to bring depth to the corpus.

    In addition to screenings and discussions, coursework also includes analysis of texts.

    This class will continue work started last spring for any interested writing students whether or not they participated in that class. Our plan will be to develop characters and dramatic/comedic incidents set on the campus of the small fictional New England liberal arts college, Marble Hill. Completed material that meets rigorous standards for shaping and revision will be considered for production through the on-campus production class running concurrently—and for possible TV, cable, and radio production.

    Classroom sessions will include brainstorming, critique, and study of effective comedy screenwriting technique—aimed at the development of scripted scenes and sequences that shape character, theme, tone, and incident to dramatic and comedic effect. Outside scripts and produced episodes will also be studied and discussed. Students may enroll in this workshop for 2 or 3 credits, depending on the amount of work they are prepared to undertake and complete.

    Rainer Werner Fassbinder died at the age of 37 but he made 44 films during the 16 years of his career. Fassbinder’s films helped define the ground-breaking New German Cinema of the late 1960’s and 70’s. They explore complicated relationships, historical memory in a nation still emerging from trauma, and gender roles in a time of shifting cultural mores. For this group tutorial, we’ll view Fassbinder’s monumental 15-hour Berlin Alexanderplatz and also study various of his feature films, including Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, The Marriage of Maria Braun, Effi Briest, In a Year of 13 Moons, Veronika Voss, and The Merchant of Four Seasons.

     All film screening will take place outside of class. Students will be expected to arrive having screened the film(s) and read the assigned text. Grades will be based on classroom participation and written analysis and critiques. Prerequisite: Admission to this group tutorial will be by permission of the instructor

    As scholars, we both consume and contribute to the body of recorded human knowledge. In this course, we'll take a look at the customs and structures underlying that body of knowledge, leading to a better understanding and more effective use of information in your work at Marlboro. We'll tackle everything from dusty print reference books to online data sets as we learn how scholarly information is structured and hone our searching and retrieval skills. We'll consider issues such as copyright, open access, and academic honesty. We'll take a field trip to another academic library (or two, or five) in the region to compare and contrast how libraries work. Students will have the opportunity to apply what we learn to an area of academic interest, completing one or more projects that could feed directly into a future tutorial or Plan paper. The course will be co-taught by the library director and a rotating group of faculty from the social and natural sciences. Highly recommended for students who anticipate writing a Plan in these areas. (This course is analogous to "Finding Stuff," which focuses on the humanities; if you've taken that one, let's talk before you register for this one.)

    Intermediate
    View

    If you believe energy can be described solely in work units of BTUs, MPGs, and kWhs, think again, as the human generation of expression has long mirrored our use of energy. We will examine the cultural and historical roots of human conceptions of energy, quickly reading our way to the present day while taking both local and global views of this inescapable and essential topic. Poetry and nonfiction will be regularly read, although a special focus on world petrofiction is planned. Authors may include William Blake, Mary Shelley, Reza Negarestani, Abdul Rahman Munif, Ishimure Michiko, Pattiann Rogers, Christa Wolf, Alfred Crosby, David Gessner, and Helon Habila. Finally, we will watch a small number of films such as There Will Be Blood, Avatar, Gasland, and Matewan.

    Prerequisite: None. Note, however, that Professor Sara Salimbeni will teach a companion course on energy from a natural science perspective in the spring. Generators is likewise not a prerequisite for that course; however, these courses taken in sequence offer a deep interdisciplinary grounding in issues of energy.

    Topic: Journeys

    “I tramp a perpetual journey.”  Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

    Some journeys, like Homer’s Odysseus’s, end in a return home; others, like Joseph Conrad’s Kurtz’s, end with words that cannot be repeated; and still others, as Emily Dickinson suggests, can occur without stepping outdoors: “to shut our eyes is to travel.” Journeys through interior corridors and journeys through external landscapes will be our focus in this introductory literature course.  Through close reading of fiction, poetry, drama, and essays, we will think about the relationship between moving inward and moving outward, between home and exile, between identity and place.  We will enter into fictional minds and countries, reading with empathy and with openness – and acquiring a critical vocabulary to describe what we’re seeing and hearing.  This class will be writing-intensive; we will read one another’s essays offering encouragement and feedback as drafts evolve into final essays. 

    Authors may include: Chaucer, William Godwin, Joseph Conrad, Michael Ondaatje, Virginia Woolf, Antonio Machada, Nadine Gordimer, Emily Dickinson, Jose Saramago, Toni Morrison, August Wilson, W.G. Sebald, Aleksandar Hemon, Elizabeth Bishop, Adrienne Rich.

    Prerequisite: None beyond a willingness to engage in the journey of imaginative reading.

     “Reading is going toward something that is about to be, and no one yet knows what it will be.” Italo Calvino, If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler

    This course will begin by understanding music – all music - as a form of human behavior involving producers and consumers, apologists, and detractors.  It will consider the desires and the fulfillments that music created, reflected, and represented during this wildly diverse and provocative period of artistic-political history.  This course will look at the period between (and including) Beethoven and Gustav Mahler, and will involve one to three hours of listening per week.  There is also one main verbal text – Richard Taruskin’s Music in the Nineteenth Century. Other supplemental readings from figures as diverse as, Herder, Levi-Strauss, Gilles Deleuze, and Susan McClary will serve to illuminate our investigations.  At the end of the semester there will be a listening exam, and students will also be expected to make a presentation on some topic relating to the topic of the course, chosen in consultation with the instructor by mid-semester.

    Western Music in the Last Century: A Few Case Studiespublic

    ART2278

    View

    The course will make an inquiry into the last century of western music from an initial vantage point of five works, written from 1913 to 2004: Igor Stravinski's Rite of Spring; George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess; Karlheinz Stockhausen's Gesange Der Jünglinge; Ornette Coleman's The Shape of Jazz To Come; and DJ Danger Mouse's The Grey Album. Each work will serve as a springboard for consideration of a wide range of notions that have gained special prominence in music of this time: modes of transmission and reception, developments in technology and their effect on both production and dissemination, "high brow" vs. "low brow", artisanship vs. industry, authenticity and fakeness, all inform these works in different and multifaceted ways. Course work will involve focused listening to those works and others related to them, reading of related materials drawn from both primary and secondary sources, and some on-going writing projects about music, as well as regular presentations of assigned topics as a starting point for discussion.

    This course is an introduction to theories of happiness and empirical research on human well-being.  Many ancient and modern philosophers have held happiness to be the highest good, and most people seem to want to be happy.  However, there are many different notions of what happiness is.  Does happiness consist in pleasure, in virtuous character, in contentment, in augmenting passionate desires, in satisfying desires, or in extirpating desires?  And how is happiness related to goodness and reason?  Can evil people be happy?  What about those who are thoroughly deluded?  And what does the relatively young field of positive psychology tell us about the nature of happiness and how to be happy?  Can this empirical research help us understood what actually makes us happy?  And if so, how ought this empirical research bear on philosophical questions of happiness, including how happiness relates to well-being, public policy, education, empathy, the satisfaction of desires, etc.? Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor

    In this course, the makings of modern American Foreign Policy will be examined through the writings of those who helped to determine it: Memoirs by some of our most recent Secretaries of State will provide the texts through which the contours of US Foreign Policy will be considered.  One of the main objectives of the class will be to study and critique the increasingly determinitive role of the United States in global affairs over the course of the past half century. But some of the more theoretical concerns of the course will focus on the question of agency: To what extent do individuals  shape and change such national programs and/or to what extent does foreign policy remain structurally consistent over time and why. Prerequisite: This intermediate course is a natural follow up to International Relations Theory and/or Levels of Analysis, although neither class will be considered mandatory.

    Branded a heretic by the Amsterdam Jewish community and a prophet by Deep Ecologists, Spinoza is not your ordinary political thinker. Rather than push for change through legislation and institutions, Spinoza encourages us to develop better encounters between our thoughts and our feelings and between ourselves and the natural world. Part of our effort, therefore, will be to develop skills in reading our emotional responses to Very Difficult Matters that make us feel powerless, such as the industrialized food system, and to figure out ways to form better alliances. This class will be useful to students interested in community organizing, civic ecology, and geometrical psychology.

    According to Quentin Skinner, political actors face a two-fold problem. On the one hand, they must tailor existing "normative language" to fit their projects, and, on the other hand, they must tailor their projects to fit existing normative language. The history of political theory then is the history of actors creating legitimacy for certain political projects through normative arguments and arguments gaining legitimacy through political action.

    From this rich political history, several different schools of thought have emerged, such as utilitarianism, liberalism, socialism, communitarianism, feminism, and libertarianism. We will use debate, forum posts, and short essays to explore these various ideologies  and their political implications. The effort will be to make political actions more persuasive and political theory more applicable. Prerequisite: None

    Student-Taught by Daniel Kalla

    Faculty Sponsors: Katherine Rickenbacker, John Sheehy 

    This course is an introduction to the racial history of prisons in the U.S., to prison reform, and to restorative justice.  The U.S. prison population today is about 2.4 million people, larger than that of any other country both in absolute terms and per capita, and it has a higher proportion of racial minorities than that of any other country.  This mass incarceration is a very recent historical development: four decades ago, it was about one eighth the size it is today and shrinking, and most experts in criminology had expected prisons to disappear as a form of punishment.  At the same time as the prison population has grown, the prison abolition movement has gained more support and restorative justice has started to be implemented worldwide, including in the Vermont Department of Corrections.  This course will start with an introduction to various issues surrounding prisons, with a focus on their anti-black racial history and some attention to the prison abolition movement.  It will then examine six reforms in prison history, specifically their intent and impact, and then look at restorative justice principles and practice.  The final part of the course will be focused on student interests relevant to restorative justice and prisons.

    Course Focus

     

    What do we learn? From where do our ideas come? Who chooses and shapes our learning?

    What links are there among larger social formations, schools, cultures, educational systems, and the political economy?

    What are our connections with schools now? Do schools reproduce social divisions from generation to generation?

    How do the State, policy and laws affect the organization and culture of the school?

     

     We examine our own historical intellectual experiences and create an inventory of future practices. In order to do this, insightful descriptions and analysis are needed; critical tools must be sharpened. We operate within world views and within the consequences of contemporary forces, all inescapably historical in nature. We focus on how to organize ourselves as individuals and as collectivities.  Educational practices/activities can become the source for deepening not only the thinking about social justice but also creating a foundation for long range changes, for organizing around immediate community issues linking them to worldwide struggles. During our first meetings we will discuss themes and topics of central interest to the participants in the class which can shape and reshape our thinking.

    This course takes a look at the changes in the way alcoholism and addiction have been portrayed on the American stage. Between the temperance movement that dominated the social activism of the nineteenth century and the war of drugs, the image of what alcoholism and addiction are has changed, and in many ways served social needs for scapegoating. The power of the portrayals of addiction has shaped social attitudes and public policy, and has undergone radical shifts both in the way we see the addict, in our ideas about how to deal with the problems that surround addiction and who in fact is cast into the role of addict at all. This course will examine the changing social history and corresponding theatrical portrayals from the middle of the nineteenth century until the present day.

    In this course we will explore the ways in which contemporary playwrights portray a vision of the secular apocalyptic. As with Vaçlav Havel's assessment of Absurdism, apocalyptic plays can be read as "not scenes from life, but theatrical images of the basic modalities of humanity in a state of collapse."  We'll take an expansive perspective on the definition of "apocalyptic" and use as a frame works from other disciplines such as Margaret Atwood's novel Oryx and Crake, the poetry of Japanese women following the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in White Flash/Black Rain, and the BBC docudrama Threads.

The class may include exercises geared towards improving your attention to such things as character, plot, rising and falling action, voice, tone, angle of vision, and point of view. Students are expected to produce new work for class steadily and to participate in class discussions. Admission to the class is on the basis of manuscripts. May be repeated for credit. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor, based on manuscripts. Offered for variable credit (2-5).

    Forms of Poetry

    Multi-Level
    View

    An introduction to poetic form, both for those who wish to develop their own skills in formal verse, and for those who want to cultivate an analytical sensitivity to formal elements in poetry.  Those in the first category will attempt poems in a variety of forms; those in the second will write short papers about poems in each form.  We will explore various principles of rhythm in organizing lines -- meter, syllable count, rhyme, free verse, refrains, prose -- and a broad range of traditional and not-so-traditional stanza structures -- sonnets, sestinas, villanelles, haiku, double-dactyls, nonce forms, and so on. The aim is not to complete polished poems and papers, but to engage technical matters in poetry seriously through exercises and analysis.  May be taken in conjunction with Poetry workshop or independently. Prerequisite: None

    Most writing is nonfiction. "Academic essays" aside, the category covers a huge range of genres: personal essays, memoirs, journalism, "new" journalism, reporting, nonfiction novels. . . the list could go on. In this course, we will both read and write in a variety of nonfiction modes: we'll read essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Marilynne Robinson and James Baldwin, short and long journalistic pieces by Hunter Thompson, Malcolm Gladwell and others, and books by Terry Tempest Williams and Truman Capote. And along the way, we'll write -- essays, character studies, journalistic pieces and longer analyses. The goal, everywhere, will be to do what all nonfiction writers do: to tell the truth, to tell it deeply, and to be interesting about it.

    This is a writing seminar, so expect a lot of reading and a lot of writing. Work with texts will alternate with work on revision, clarity and style. A good time will be had by all. Prerequisite: None

    Writing Seminar: Crime & Punishmenthearing

    Great Britain's incarceration rate is quite high by world standards: 142 of every 100,000 Britons are currently in jail. That number in China is 118 per 100,00, in France 91, in Japan 58, and in Nigeria 31. The U.S. currently imprisons almost 800 of every 100,000 citizens. In other words, one out of every 135 Americans is currently serving time in jail or prison.

    Nearly half of the resulting U.S. prison population -- which now numbers almost 2.5 million -- is African American, while African Americans make up only 12% of the U.S. population. And according to a United Nations study, in all the prisons in the world outside the U.S., there are currently 12 minors serving life sentences. In U.S. prisons today there are more than 2,000.

    In this seminar we will examine the reality of crime and punishment in the United States. We will begin by studying cases, to build a sense of the principles and practices behind criminal law and criminal sentencing. Then we will move to the deeper level: we will examine the reasoning for and against the death penalty as decisions on death penalty cases. We will then examine the criminal justice system itself, asking a simple question: How did the U.S. find itself with the highest incarceration rate in the world? How are we to judge the costs and benefits of American crime and punishment?

    As in any writing seminar, we will write about all of it: expect at least three major papers, culminating in a research paper of your own design, and weekly shorter writing assignments. Discussions of the text will alternate with work on writing: conferences, writing workshops and discussions of style and structure. Prerequisite: None

    Writing Seminar: The Art of the Essayhearing

    Virginia Woolf describes the essay as a form that "must lap us about and draw its curtain across the world." But what, she questions, "can the essayist use in these short length of prose to sting us awake and fix us in a trance which is not sleep but rather an intensification of life - a basking, with every faculty alert, in the sun of pleasure?" Her answer is a simple one: "He must know - that is the first essential - how to write." From David Quamman's "The Face of the Spider" to Scott Russell Sanders' "Looking at Women" to Wallace Stegner's "The Town Dump" to Annie Dillard's "Living Like Weasels" to George Saunders' "The Braindead Megaphone," we will explore how contemporary essayists -- in personal essays, nature writing, literary journalism, and science writing -- look closely at everyday objects, practices and experiences. We will analyze what makes these essayists effective, entertaining, and enlightening. And, of course, we will be writing about all of this in several formats: in-class exercises and shorter assignments leading up to two 4-6 page papers and one 8-10 page research paper. Peer response workshops, writing conferences, and in-class work on style, revision, and editing will alternate with our class discussion of the essays. Prerequisite: None

    This writing seminar will climb mountains. Throughout the semester, we'll hike through a range of texts that explore what the significance of mountains is to writers from many different traditions. Authors that may be on the reading list include Gary Snyder, Petrarch, Dogen, and Miriam Underhill. We'll write analytically about these texts and creatively about the actual mountains we live amid. Finally, we'll foray to some mountains. Did you know Henry David Thoreau climbed Mt. Wantastiquet while visiting Brattleboro? Have you read fire lookout tower poetry while in a tower? We'll make at least one group ascent of a mountain, adding our voices and footsteps to the peaks.
