  • Summer Data Workshops: Creating high quality graphics in R with ggplot2

    ggplot2 is a plotting package for R that makes it simple to create complex plots from data stored in a data frame. It provides a programmatic interface for specifying what variables to plot, how they are displayed, and general visual properties. Therefore, researchers only need minimal changes if the underlying data change or if they decide to change from a bar plot to a scatterplot. This helps in creating publication quality plots with minimal amounts of adjustments and tweaking.

  • Bread Loaf Lecture Series: “Friend to Friend in the Endtime: Imagining Solidarity, Writing the Future” with Jess Row

    Dystopian or post-apocalyptic novels like Parable of the Sower, Station Eleven, Severance, Fiskadoro, and Dhalgren often imagine relationships of love, companionship, and interdependence across lines of race, gender identification, class, age, and nationality. This lecture raises the question of why these stories seem so attractive in the future, yet impossible in the present, and what we can learn from dystopian narratives about creating better characters in any story.

  • Bread Loaf Lecture Series: “The I As Multitudes" with Reginald Dwayne Betts

    The ways in which writers engage the I has always been worthy of discussion. But mostly not for what the I says about the writer - and yet, what we imagine the I says about the writer is what frightens so many of becoming multitudes. This class asks questions about the I and what it means to embody multitudes, what it means to be more than ourselves on the page.
