New Book Edited by John Chaich

Posted By Administration, Friday, April 28, 2017

I'm pleased to share this release for the launch of the coffee table art book I've edited with Todd Oldham, published by AMMO Books.

I will be giving a talk and signing at MOCA Cleveland on June 16, and would be thrilled if alumni would be encouraged to attend. Here's some info from MOCA:

Queer Threads

In My American Dream, Keith Mayerson weaves together a narrative of progressive American values, including portraits of his personal experience as a gay married man alongside cultural icons who have helped to advance this country toward equality for all. 

 In conjunction with his new book, Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community, Cleveland-native John Chaich will talk about the connections between LGBTQ identity, language, and materiality in his extensive curatorial projects, which have been presented internationally from New York to Buenos Aires. Designed by Todd Oldham Studio, the 192-page book Queer Threads evolves from the traveling exhibition of the same name that Chaich curated in 2014 at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art in New York City. Dubbed “Judiciously racy…taking you places you never thought you and your thimble would go,” by the New York Times, the book features an international, intergenerational mix of 30 contemporary artists—including Nick Cave, Josh Faught, Athi-Pata Ruga, and Sheila Pepe—who explore queer identity by remixing fiber craft traditions as well as the tensions between of art and craft, masculine and feminine, and gay and straight. To further examine how queerness informs each featured artist's work in fiber and textiles, the book also features interviews with leading makers and thinkers such as Jonathan Adler, Julia Bryan-Wilson, Bill T. Jones, Kathleen Hanna, Tim Gunn, and others. A book signing with Chaich will follow the talk.

MFA Degree Completed/Next Degree To Earn

Posted By Barbara Hines Cochran, Sunday, April 23, 2017
Updated: Sunday, April 23, 2017

On July 20, 2026, I was awarded a Master of Fine Arts degree at Ashland University after I successfully defended my translation thesis, Now I Write, originally written in Spanish by award-winning author, Lolita Bosch. I am the first literary translator to have been accepted into Ashland’s graduate-level Creative Writing program. It is my hope that my successful completion of the degree will help pave the way for more literary translators to be accepted into similar programs, here and abroad. I am now working on another degree: in Italian literature, through ICON, a large consortium of Italy’s leading universities, including La Sapienza in Rome, and the oldest in the world, Bologna.

Note From Kathy (Mayhew) Marks '65

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 10, 2017

I don't remember an afternoon sipping milkshakes and eating fries because I was a biology major and miner in general science, I was always in the lab. However, I fondly remember treating myself to "dinner" at Freddies, a burger and fries, on evenings before Lab Practicum or after finals. 

I certainly recall Fred DJing during my study-break. A quick "rock around the clock" before "purrs" at 9, 10, or 11 depending on your year, was my way to have something to look forward to and energy to get me through the studying I would do after I got back to the dorm. 

Historically reflecting, I also recall that Student Union was also called "The Zollars Building." It was only after my husband came to Hiram as a transfer from a branch of Ohio U that he learned the student union had been named after his great uncle, Ely Von Zollar, a former president of Hiram. At Thanksgiving, Gary went home and told his mother about the Zollars name for the Student Union. She said "oh, yes, I think he was president of Hiram." Even though Gary had wanted to go to Hiram for years, having a"memorable" fight with his father because of the high cost of $1450 per year, no one ever talked about the only member of their family to have ever graduated high school, much less tell Gary that he was president of the college where he longed to go. Zollars was an ordained Disciples minister, president of Hiram and Transylvania, and founder of Philips University. History is important! Thanks for the memories.

New Book by Roger Steck '64

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 10, 2017

      "The Mysterion Dynasty" by Roger Wells, my pen name, is now available. It is likely he first description of how the human mind operates. It changes much about what we think we know about ourselves and about governments and religions. I defines god. It perhaps will be a major book in the area of philosophy and psychology. 

     It took me 38 years to complete my books, actually 5 books in one volume. It is available from Amazon.com, iUniverse.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and soon on various e-books. It is 566 pages and notebook paper size.

     My main work was in heart research, cancer research, medical products, and automated machine design but my books are the result of an intellectual game I played to discover how the mind works because no one could ever tell me.

A Note From Evie (Hagstrom) Bowers '51

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 10, 2017
This is my 17th year at the Coak Valley/ Porter Hills Retirement Community. In May, I'll fly to FL where my older son, David, will be honored as 2017 Tax Attorney of the year for the state of Florida. The celebration will be at their annual meeting at The Breakers in Palm Beach. I see classmate Beth Reed Gupp a couple times a year.
