    <ong>College Organist Lawrence Archbold to perform

    Enid and Henry Woodward College Organist Lawrence Archbold will perform a new series of recitals, “Organ Adventures,” on Sunday, September 27 at 3 p.m. in the Carleton College Concert Hall.

    This series is a continuation of Archbold’s musical programming “Exploring Organ Music” which began in 1999. The new series features music from the Renaissance to Romanticism and includes works by Sweelinck, J. S. Bach, Frank, and Mendelssohn. This concert is free and open to the public.

    The program will include a Mendelssohn Sonata in honor of the 200th anniversary of the composer’s birth. The Sonatas, of which there are six, are considered Mendelssohn’s major contribution to organ music. The entire performance will run for one hour, without intermission.

    Archbold, a professor music at Carleton, received his A.B., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, Berkeley. He has published a book and several articles and essays on both German Baroque and French Romantic organ music, given lectures at national meetings of the American Musicological Society and the American Guild of Organists, and performed over 100 organ recitals. A companion program to the “Organ Adventures” series is planned for April 11, 2010.

    Lecture series to feature anthropologists speaking on globalization

    The Carleton College Department of Sociology and Anthropology has announced a new ongoing lecture series entitled “Anthropologists on Globalization,” taking place each Friday from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., beginning Friday September 18 and running through Friday November 13. The nine-part series, which is free and open to the public, will be held on the Carleton campus in Leighton Hall, room 330. Coffee and bagels will be served.

    The subjects of the lectures vary widely, examining cultures across the globe. Titles in the series include “Adventures in Ornithology: Transformations in a Field Science in Sri Lanka” by Arjun Guneratne of Macalester College (September 25), “Local Art, Global Culture, and the State in Southwest China” by Chas McKhann (October 2), “Son Dos Alas: The Diffusion of Hip-Hop in Cuba and Puerto Rico” by Melisa Riviere (October 9), and “From Local Identities to a Global Movement: Indigenous Rights Today” by Carleton’s own Jay Levi (October 30).

    The lecture series is the brainchild of Van Dusenbery, a visiting professor from Hamline University. Local anthropologists will speak on their research involving the ways in which globalization has effected anthropology and its subject matter. According to Dusenbery, “some anthropologists follow goods as they flow around the world, or stay in one place to watch as globalization changes the social imagination in one place. Others look at… how global discourse is locally understood and activated.”

    Dusenbery believes that exposure to the varied research of professional anthropologists is a key part of training students to conduct their own research.
