An image taken at an annual lecture created as a way for the college’s faculty and selected alumni to share their expertise and insights serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.
Parents and members of the Oberlin community gathered in Dye Lecture Hall for the annual President’s Lecture, presented this month by Professor Jay Fiskio. The associate professor of environmental studies and comparative American studies discussed the labor of frontline communities to protect and repair the world and to create better futures through direct action, expressive culture, and social care. Her talk focussed in particular on Oberlin College’s collaboration with the community of Africatown, Alabama, the site where the last ship of enslaved peoples landed in 1860.

This week’s photo series continues with other lessons experienced both in and out of the classroom.
This Week in Photos is a selection of images and is not meant to represent a weekly timeline. Images highlight campus, community, people, and events related to Oberlin College.
