The 2nd Annual Latina/o Student-Faculty Mixer last week was a great success. The event brought out nine Latina/o faculty from several different departments from American Studies and Astronomy to Spanish and ER&M for a fun night to socialize with many students. While indulging in a delicious meal, the greater Latina/o community was able to connect in a really relaxed and friendly environment. Thanks to all those who came out!

LaToya Ruby Frazier, appointed critic in Photography at Yale School of Art 2012
Grandma Ruby and Me, 2005.

“LaToya Ruby Frazier uses the conventions of social documentary and portraiture to expose untold stories of post-industrial decline in the United States. With her series The Notion of Family, Frazier presents images of herself and family members, with particular emphasis of collaborative portraits created with her mother and grandmother, in their hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania. Formerly a centre of steel production, the town is now in economic decline. Frazier photographs psychological portraits of three generations of women who have been affected by adverse social and economic circumstances yet share deep and complex ties. Frazier portrays herself, her mother and her grandmother as one, conveying rich emotions both through their faces and bodies and through images of objects in their home. The photographs range from unforgiving and sombre to quietly tender.” (AIMIA

Congratulation to LaToya Ruby Frazier for being recognized for her tremendous work with a 2014 Guggenheim Fellowship!

Samia Halaby, associate professor of painting at the Yale School of Art from 1978–82

“… after pursuing her MFA at Indiana University in Bloomington, Halaby became the first full-time female professor at the Yale School of Art. Halaby taught there for ten years until 1982, when, despite having promised her a permanent position, Yale failed to renew her contract — a move which Halaby believes had to do with her gender and her increasing political activism.” (NYMag Q&A)

An architect is a person trained in the planning, design and oversight/supervision of the construction of buildings.

Psychology is the study of the mind, occurring partly via the study of behavior. Grounded in scientific method, psychology has the immediate goal of understanding individuals and groups by both establishing general principles and researching specific cases, and for many it ultimately aims to benefit society. In this field, a professional practitioner or researcher is called a psychologist, and can be classified as a social scientist, behavioral scientist, or cognitive scientist.

In biological classification, family is a taxonomic rank. Other well-known ranks are life, domain, kingdom, phylum, class, order, genus, and species, with family fitting between order and genus. As for the other well-known ranks, there is the option of an immediately lower rank, indicated by the prefix sub-: subfamily . a taxonomic unit, a taxon, in that rank. In that case the plural is families (Latin familiae) Example: Walnuts and hickories belong to Juglandaceae, the walnut family.

Computer science or computing science (abbreviated CS or CompSci) designates the scientific and mathematical approach in information technology and its applications, notably computer software and sometimes hardware. A computer scientist is a scientist who specialises in the theory of computation and the design of computers. Its subfields can be divided into practical techniques for its implementation and application in computer systems and purely theoretical areas.

Joe Scanlan, appointed assistant professor at Yale in 2001 and associate professor of sculpture in 2006.

“The character of Donelle Woolford (fictionally b. 1980; above left; Yale BA in Fine Art, 2003) was created by the middle-aged white artist Joe Scanlan and is embodied by the actress Jennifer Kidwell. Wearing man-drag, she’ll reenact a 1977 stand-up routine by Richard Pryor at the last Whitney Biennial in the old Whitney building.” (New York)

I really enjoyed this exchange about the project.

“Target Practice, USS Peleliu,” 2005
An-My Lê, Yale MFA in Photography 1993; appointed critic in photography at Yale in 2010

“I think about the horizon a lot. Do you want the horizon to be in the middle of the picture? Do you want it to be a third? For me, it’s usually balanced by whatever is below the horizon. Sometimes I feel that a picture needs a lot of air, so I will give it more sky and lower the horizon. It’s not always that much of an issue for me. You know, I see the image upside down on the ground glass and it’s very intuitive how it’s balanced out. It’s always a question of air versus solid ground. Being at sea, you really start paying attention to the horizon and how it’s defined. Sometimes it’s very sharp; sometimes it’s hazy. Sometimes there are residues of colors on the edge. It’s something I was mesmerized with.”An-My Lê

Materials science is an interdisciplinary field applying the properties of matter to various areas of science and engineering. This scientific field investigates the relationship between the structure of materials at atomic or molecular scales and their macroscopic properties. It incorporates elements of applied physics and chemistry.
