Astonishing the Senses Demo

As teachers of theater, one of the greatest challenges Crystal Tiala and Jennifer Stiles face is the ability to effectively convey the interdisciplinary nuances of theatrical style and of the consciously imposed structure and form of a play text or theatrical production which communicates the mood and ideology of an era to its audience.

China Gateway

China Gateway was envisioned by Rebecca Nedostup as an introduction to the wealth of information available on China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Chinese diaspora. To create the site, she drew on distinctive Boston College resources as well as the wider internet and digitized print material, supplemented by specially created learning objects. Taking an inter-disciplinary approach, she selected content that would be of use to both students and instructors in a variety of fields and for a variety of purposes, from general study to travel to Asia to discovery of the Chinese community here in Boston.

xul thumb


Ernesto Livon-Grosman wanted to create an electronic version of XUL: Old and New Sign. XUL is a journal of experimental writing first published in Buenos Aires in the early 1980s during the time of one of the most repressive military dictatorships in Argentinian history. At the time of its first publication, XUL ’s defiant gesture toward censorship made it possible to create a forum for experimental poetics. Livon-Grosman owns one of the few complete sets of the 11 paper issues and has exclusive rights to publish XUL electronically.
