John Perkins - The Secret History of the American Empire
www.marlboro.edu - Author John Perkins spoke at Marlboro College on 4/23/08. Drawing on experiences described in his two New York Times bestsellers, Perkins describes the post-WWII era as one that created history's first truly global empire -- mostly through economics, rather than the military. Now we find ourselves catapulted toward a future that appears catastrophic to many people; however, in Perkins's view it offers great opportunities. Identifying corporations as "the most influential institutions on the planet," he challenges us to transform ourselves and the companies that so deeply impact our lives. He presents a plan for creating a world "that will make our children proud of us." John Perkins spent three decades as an Economic Hit Man, business executive, author, and lecturer. He lived and worked in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and North America. Then he made a decision: he would use these experiences to make the planet a better place for his daughters generation. Today he teaches about the importance of rising to higher levels of consciousness, to waking up -- in both spiritual and physical realms -- and is a champion for environmental and social causes.

Interview. Michael Hathorn's EdTech Capstone project using SketchUp to teach high school history.
http://www.gradschool.marlboro.edu As my capstone project I am creating an online 3D history course for VTVLC (Vermont Virtual Learning Cooperative). This course will provide an opportunity not offered at any other high school in the state, or even the country, and a chance for students to create their own town history in 3D. This course has been years in the making for me, and this capstone has helped me to focus and organize my ideas, as well as use the new ideas and tools I have learned through my time as a MAT student at Marlboro College. Before I get to how this course will be set up and organized, I feel it is important to give a background on how this course came to be a history course at Hartford High School, and then I will explain the transition of turning this into an online course that will be offered to all interested Vermont high school and CCV (Community College of Vermont) students. As a history teacher I have always been fascinated with the connections between real artifacts and the people behind them. It has often been hard for me to instill the same passion in my students. When a veteran teacher came to me in December 2008 with an idea to use new software to create three-dimensional buildings, record the history of the buildings and link them to Google Earth, I was intrigued. My students were initially reluctant to get out into the community to conduct interviews, but they instantly fell in love with SketchUp (3D building software for use with Google Earth). I found that the more time they spent on perfecting the buildings in SketchUp, the more connected they felt toward the building and their town. Once they found out there were people who knew why the building was built, they wanted to seek them out and find out more. These stories were turned into a website where their stories could be preserved. Now, not only is our town history easy to access on Google Earth, but it is also available on a website in which the students are the reporters, editors, designers and advisors. We quickly found out that each building had a unique story and that story was just a small part of our town. To really understand our town we needed to complete more buildings and conduct more interviews. Since the spring of 2009, when I started teaching students how to use SketchUp and its connection to Google Earth, we have added 200 buildings to the 3D warehouse, and 175 and counting are live on Google Earth. We have also conducted over 150 interviews of local historians who were generous enough to share their knowledge of the buildings. This has allowed us to capture a unique piece of history within our town and digitize it for the world to see. My view on teaching history has changed dramatically through this project. After 16 years as a teacher, I viewed my teaching as how much information I could give my students and how much they could retain. Now I am looking for my students to create the history by creating 3D buildings in SketchUp and conducting interviews with local historians, and my students are all over the state of Vermont. SketchUp has made learning fun for my students and has helped lead to them wanting to learn more about the historical buildings in their home towns. When students are interested in what they are doing they become better learners. It is very easy to get students interested in the technology of creating 3D buildings, and I use that as the hook to get them interested in the history that is tied to the buildings.

Rashad Shabazz - Hip-hop and the Black Geographical Imagination
www.marlboro.edu. Dr. Shabazz is currently an assistant professor in the Geography Department in the University of Vermont. His lecture at Marlboro College explored the ways in which the dynamics of space, place, race, gender and culture are articled in hip-hop's verbal expressivity. Drawing on the lyrics of hip-hop artists, he highlighted how rap music has become an important site of the articulation of a black spatial imagery, while also making the case that hip-hop must shift our understanding of where geographic knowledge is located. Currently Dr Shabazz is working on a book manuscript that examines how Black identity, culture and anti-Black racism are produced and disciplined through spatiality.

Shea Witzberger's Senior Address -- Marlboro College 2012 Commencement
The Marlboro College Class of 2012 chose senior Shea Witzberger as its senior speaker. Witzberger did not disappoint her classmates, delivering a humorous retrospection on the dire circumstances surrounding contemporary graduates. Her speech is transcribed below. For more information about Marlboro College, visit http://www.marlboro.edu. "Congratulations class of 2012! I'm honored to be speaking to you, to your families, and alongside such accomplished, inspiring and dedicated nerds. This is an amazing day in a way that no other commencement in the history of ever has been, and not because Marlboro is such a rigorous institution, which it is. It's not because the Plans that this class wrote, danced, sang and acted were better than all the rest, although I'm quite proud of the work that so many of us pulled off at the last minute. We deserve congratulations for completing our undergraduate degrees, but I feel that our time here has gone underappreciated in one way—I have heard slim to no praise for completing college in 2012, year of the apocalypse. This is the least reasonable time in history to get a liberal arts degree, and I'm not talking job prospects and starting salaries, my friends. I'm talking Armageddon. While working so hard on our own projects in the last year, you may have missed some key doom signs. It's ok. You were in a dark Plan cave, typing for one thousand hours. Individualistic, academic, productive zombiehood prevailed during that dark age. While I'm glad to see you back in the social world, exposing yourselves to sunlight, wearing graduation robes instead of bathrobes, I have some news for you. Allow me to recap the writing on the wall. Doom sign number one—the Rapture. Do you remember? Number two. Revolutions sprouted across the globe! Everyone occupied everything! There were hurricanes and floods and tsunamis, but I'll leave that for Bill to talk about. Continued economic uncertainty kept little institutions like this one shivering in fear like endangered tropical birds in a nuclear winter. Sallie Mae was named an honorary fifth horsemen of the apocalypse, and her first hellish deed was in fact an attempt to repossess the speech that I'm giving you today. If, as you finished your oral examinations, the sight of "smokers" on a "party barge" on a "fire pond" didn't bring vivid images to your mind of Waterworld, then I seriously recommend revisiting your VHS collection. Global Weirding is certainly upon us. And, despite the amazing, articulate, inspiring and rational call to arms that I'm sure you will receive from Bill McKibben about saving the planet, I'd like you to take a moment to remember the Mayan prophecies. Have fun arguing against that, activism and science. Seniors. As your fragile, transitional minds drift toward worry about all of those little anythings—worry about moving back in with your parents, about how you'll survive an unpaid internship, about if there will be internships to be had for the survivors of whatever catastrophic craziness may head our way—remember that old cliché that liberal arts colleges teach you how to think, and maybe, just maybe, this place taught you a few things about how to think about surviving the black hole of a twilight zone real world that Marlboro is regurgitating us back out into. Marlboro taught us that when the going gets rough, it's good to have surrounded yourself with dedicated self-starters and lots of camping equipment. Marlboro taught us that when there aren't any cups left in the dining hall and while people debate about whether or not to buy new cups, we can drink out of bowls. Marlboro taught us that when resources are slim, people are going to argue about whether or not women should get any of those resources, and in the meantime you have found the dream fuel for excellent feminist criticism. Marlboro taught us to examine and change our governing processes, and to watch how our governing structure handles crisis and to improve it. This will mean that we are the people who are best prepared for leadership roles in the transient governments of the space colonies. These are vital skills for 2013 and beyond, if we make it that far. In closing, no one doubts that this is a weird time to be a bright-eyed graduate of a liberal arts college. But I'd be doing you a disservice by letting you "celebrate" with your "loved ones" about your "accomplishments" in such uncertain and dire times. Think about stockpiling the refreshments on your way out. A sharp social mind, an ability to thrive in uncertainty, and some really heavy-duty crampons and vacuum-0sealed food packets. This is the Marlboro alum of the future. I ask that you all glean from these last joyous moments of these golden years on this beautiful hill what pragmatic, critical knowledge you can, because it is a cold, cold world out there. But it's getting warmer at an alarming rate. Thank you!"
