Theatre Fairfield, Fairfield University's student theatre company, will present "The Laramie Project" from Wednesday, Feb. 26 through Sunday, March 2 at the Wien Experimental Theatre in the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. The curtain rises at 8 p.m. each evening with additional afternoon performances at 2 p.m. on March 1 and 2.
The award-winning Tectonic Theater Project and its artistic director Moisés Kaufman created "The Laramie Project" after the 1998 death of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student who was brutally murdered in Laramie, Wyo. Members of the New York City-based troupe traveled to Wyoming seven times in the weeks after the incident in search of answers: How did the murder happen in this small midwestern town? How had it changed Laramie? What was it like to live in a town now forever associated with such a crime? What did it say about the United States at century's end?
Tectonic Theater Project members conducted more than 200 interviews in Wyoming and compiled true stories from those who knew Shepard and his murderers. The finished play, which includes snippets of trial testimony and reflections from the company members' journals, is a study in contrast, taking on the complex issues of gay rights, values, hate and community.
Theatre Fairfield's production includes an ensemble of 10 Fairfield University students playing multiple roles. Douglas Moser, whose past Theatre Fairfield credits include "Lend Me a Tenor," "The Children's Hour," and "Twelve Angry Men," is guest director. Jennifer Manzo is costume designer and Matt Maraffi is scenic designer. Lynne Chase serves as lighting designer.
Tickets are $12 for general admission, $5 for student admission. For tickets, call the Quick Center box office at (203) 254-4010 or toll free at 1-877-ARTS-396. For more information, visit the website, www.quickcenter.com.

Ten old master paintings dating from the mid 14th through the early 18th centuries and representing the major periods, styles and schools of Italian Renaissance and Baroque painting, were recently presented to Fairfield University by The Discovery Museum in Bridgeport, Conn.
The paintings represent a spectrum of religious and secular images generally attributed to the followers or the studio workshops of some of the noteworthy major painters of Italian Renaissance and Baroque art. An appropriate and secure installation plan is being developed for the paintings, where students and the public may view the artworks.
The acquisition enhances an already thriving art history program, said Fr. Aloysius P. Kelley, President of Fairfield University, in a letter thanking the Discovery Museum for the gift. "Fairfield University is proud of its excellent Department of Visual and Performing Arts and its art history program. The possibility that our students and faculty will have these paintings as a resource for their academic work is most exciting," Fr. Kelley wrote.
The donation will provide an excellent study tool for art history students, who will have the opportunity to explore every aspect of the paintings, from origins to themes to restoration, said Philip Eliasoph, Ph.D., professor of art history at Fairfield University.
"This is a magnificent study collection which comes to us through enviable provenance of the Kress family allowing students to have first-hand access for their class assignments" Dr. Eliasoph said.
"Within the next few years, art history students will be developing a comprehensive catalogue of these paintings enabling us to place them into their historical, cultural and artistic contexts."
The paintings were originally given to The Discovery Museum by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation just before the museum opened in 1962 as the Museum of Art, Science and Industry. Since then, the museum's mission has changed to focus on science and technology. The gift of the paintings to Fairfield, along with other donations made to Bridgeport-area institutions, completes the museum's transition.
"The reason we selected Fairfield University to receive the Kress collection was its exceptional art history program, its reputation for collections management and its accessibility to the public," said Paul Audley, president of the Discovery Museum Inc.
To make the paintings available for study by art students and the general public preserves the original intent of the Kress Foundation. The New York-based Foundation's main collection is at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., but the foundation has offered smaller collections to numerous institutions nationwide with the hopes of increasing access to great works of art. The foundation was started by Samuel H. Kress and following his death, continued to procure paintings under the leadership of Kress' brother, Rush H. Kress. The entire collection consists of more than 3,000 works of European art. In acquiring the paintings, Fairfield joins the ranks of such colleges as Amherst, Bowdoin and Oberlin and universities such as Princeton, Harvard and Notre Dame who also maintain Kress collections.
The oldest paintings in the collection given to Fairfield, "St. Anthony Abbot" and "St. Andrew" are gilded egg tempera panels that date to the late 14th century. "One can only imagine these two saints appearing on the wooden structure of a Sienese altarpiece painted as an 'ex voto' (sacred offering) after the devastating impact of the Black Death. The Bubonic Plague, which killed more than two-thirds of the population of Siena beginning in 1348, was remembered in most of the devotional paintings by artists of the next generation," commented Dr. Eliasoph.
"These saintly images are very close to the hand of the master of Siena, Pietro Lorenzetti. Inspecting the details we see marvelous passages in the texture of their drapery, the faultless treatment of the hands, and highly expressive physiognomic facial details. This was an anonymous Tuscan painter who must have survived the catastrophe of the plague."
The paintings are: "Madonna and Child," circa 1525, a follower of Ambrogio Borgognone; "Portrait of a Lady," c. mid 16th century, a follower of Bronzino (Agnolo di Cosimo); "Portrait of a Boy," c. 1655-1743, attributed to Fra Vittore Ghislandi; "Madonna and Child," c. 1530/40, attributed to Pietro degli Ingannati; "Landscape with Figures," c. 1783, Basilio Lasinio; "St. Anthony Abbot," c. late 14th century, a follower of Pietro Lorenzetti; "St. Andrew," c. late 14th century, a follower of Lorenzetti; "Andromeda and Perseus," c. 1710, attributed to Paolo de Matteis; "The Nativity," c. late 16th century, a follower of Jacopo Tintoretto; and "A Judgement Scene," c. 1450, attributed to Lorenzo Vecchietta.

More than 100 years ago, hundreds of people were killed as New York City burned when thousands of working-class New Yorkers rioted in protest of a Civil War draft law.
Recounting the brutality of the riots and many true stories from the massacre, author Kevin Baker weaves a fictional tale of three women caught up in the horror in his new book Paradise Alley (HarperCollins 2002). Baker will read a portion of the book on Tuesday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the multimedia room of the DiMenna-Nyselius Library at Fairfield University. A reception and book signing with refreshments will follow the reading.
Sparked by the passage of the National Conscription Act for the Civil War, thousands of people, mainly Irish immigrants, erupted in riot for three days in the summer of 1863. The immigrants, often already struggling to survive, were enraged by the draft law and its provision that the rich could buy their way out of the draft with $300.
Baker's book covers the same period and some of the same events as "Gangs of New York," a novel that has spawned a new Oscar-nominated movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Daniel Day-Lewis. Baker's book is the second in a trilogy, City of Fire, about Civil War-era events in New York. The first book in the set, Dreamland, was set at Coney Island around 1910, and deals with the fire that destroyed the Dreamland Amusement Park and the Triangle Shirtwaist fire.
Michael White, Ph.D., professor of English at Fairfield University, said, "The novel is a magnificent blending of history and fiction, a grand story of vast scope, peopled by compelling characters and riveting in its portrayal of 19th century New York."
"Baker intertwines love, violence, history, adventure and social commentary to give readers an invigorating, heartbreaking tale of the immigrant experience," Publishers Weekly wrote about Paradise Alley.
Born in Englewood, N.J. in 1958 and raised in Rockport, Mass., Baker received his bachelor's degree in political science from Columbia University in 1980. Baker was the chief historical researcher for Harold Evans' history, "The American Century" (1998). He has written for The New York Times, The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, and Harper's, and writes a column for American Heritage, about the parallels between events today and those of yesteryear.
Sponsored jointly by the English Department, American Studies, and Irish Studies, the lecture, which is part of a celebration of Connecticut Arts Week, is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required.

Fairfield University's Security Department, in cooperation with the Connecticut Police Chiefs Association, will host a terrorism awareness workshop for law enforcement officers on Wednesday, February 26, on the Fairfield campus.
The presenter will be Michael Scully, a special agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from Providence, R.I. According to Fairfield University Director of Security Todd Pelazza, the workshop is designed for front-line patrol officers and will include insights into the Islamic culture as well as information on what officers should look for as part of their terrorism work. Pelazza said sponsors will be taping the workshop with the hope of distributing it to police departments throughout the state of Connecticut.
The workshop, which will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the multimedia room of DiMenna-Nyselius Library, is certified by the State Police Academy and those attending will receive certificates of credit for the program. For more information, contact Todd Pelazza at (203) 254-4090. Media inquiries should be made to Dana Ambrosini, assistant director of media relations at Fairfield University, at (203) 254-4000, ext. 2726.

Fairfield University is pleased offer an exciting new "Jesuits in Asia" lecture series, which will celebrate the unique position the Society of Jesus had in exploring Asian culture and in developing a mutual appreciation among artists, philosophers and priests in Europe and Asia.
This spring, the inaugural lecture will be presented on Wednesday, March 26, by Francis Clooney, S.J., Ph.D. Fr. Clooney's talk is entitled "Holy Disguise: Jesuits and Brahmins in South India (1544-1800)." He will speak on how Jesuits interpreted the Brahmins and accordingly reinterpreted themselves.
Gauvin A. Bailey, Ph.D., a renowned art historian, will speak on Wednesday, April 2. Dr. Bailey's talk is on the "Jesuit Artistic Enterprises in Asia, 1542-1773." He will explore the artistic interchanges in India and East Asia, between Jesuit artists and those indigenous painters and sculptors trained in Asian schools and workshops.
Since the first voyages to India, the Philippines, Japan and China by Francis Xavier, one of Ignatius Loyola's closest disciples, Jesuits have represented Catholic Christianity in the courts of Asian kings and emperors, while attending to the needs of those seeking knowledge and understanding. The presence of Jesuits among the literate and powerful in India and China provided them with exceptional access to Asian thought and culture, so that they could translate Christian ideals into an idiom accessible to, and appreciated by, Indian and Chinese artists and intellectuals. In the process, they stimulated new developments in literature, art, religion and self-awareness among the peoples with whom they conversed.
Yet the Jesuits acted as much as conduits as they did representatives, for they also brought back the first systematic understanding of Chinese literature, Indian Islam, Hinduism, and a host of other religious and cultural ideas that helped shaped the modern West. As a consequence, philosophers like Leibnitz began to appreciate Confucian ideals, just as artists in India learned to paint with European colors and perspectives. The consequence was that both Europe and Asia gained in cultural richness and understood themselves, no longer as separate entities, but as part of a larger human dynamism.
The lecture series, supported by Fairfield University's Humanities Institute, the Nintur Foundation, the Programs in International Studies and Asian Studies, is free and open to the public. The talks will be presented in the Oak Room of the Barone Campus Center, Fairfield University, and will begin at 7:30 p.m.

A homeowner who was frustrated with people dumping garbage on a lot in her neighborhood deterred the activity by posting a video camera on the property. An education worker who noticed that many children weren't going to school in her community decreased truancy substantially by providing them with new clothes. A former teen mother gave confidence to other teen mothers by throwing them baby showers that included a nurse who could provide prenatal care.
Those are some of the many success stories that have been accomplished through the Dreyfus Health Foundation's "Problem Solving for Better Health"® (PSBH®) program. Now, Fairfield University's School of Nursing is joining Dreyfus to bring that program to the Bridgeport area, with a focus on older adult care. It is the first time Dreyfus has worked with a university school of nursing to implement the PSBH® program, which has generated action to improve health in numerous communities internationally and a handful in the United States.
The Foster Grandparents Program, Aspira of Connecticut, Inc., the Southwestern Connecticut Area Agency on Aging, the South End Community Center and the First Baptist Church in Bridgeport are among the organizations that have stepped forward to be involved in the Bridgeport-area initiative by encouraging community members to participate.
A proven system that began in 1989, PSBH® helps community members identify health related problems, develop solutions tapping the network of resources in their community, and find seed money to support the solutions. It also provides a network of on-going support as projects are implemented.
PSBH® represents a change in the way health care is traditionally viewed because it seeks to make improvements by integrally involving all of the participants, rather than promoting a solution developed outside and imported in, said Philip Greiner, Ph.D., associate professor at Fairfield University and director of the Health Promotion Center, a Fairfield University-run Bridgeport-based nursing center that will be the primary vehicle for administrating the new program.
The program with Fairfield University is an attempt to create a model for implementing the PSBH® program in partnership with a school of nursing for use in more settings throughout the United States.
Several Fairfield University nursing students will also take part in the program, thereby enhancing their commitment to the Jesuit ideal of helping others and allowing them to remain on the cutting edge of nursing education - which means hands-on involvement in the community as opposed to solely classroom-based work, said Doris Lippman, Ed.D., professor in the Fairfield University School of Nursing and principal investigator in the project.
Todd J. Pelletier, a junior nursing student at Fairfield, is looking forward to participating. "I see it as a great opportunity for us to get involved in this community," Pelletier said. "I think it will open our eyes to some of the issues that older people face in inner city communities."
The program was officially launched at a luncheon meeting on February 19 at the First Baptist Church in Bridgeport, home of the Health Promotion Center. First Baptist Reverend Hopeton Scott and other community leaders along with Fairfield University faculty and students who will participate in the project, and members of the Dreyfus Health Foundation, met to discuss the new program. The luncheon was a prelude to an April workshop that will gather as many members of the community as possible to develop solutions to older adult care problems.
Anyone who has an issue and an idea about a problem in their community that they would like to solve is invited to the one and a half day workshop, said Marsha Copeland-Jacks, regional program coordinator, U.S., who made a presentation at the luncheon on the Dreyfus program. The workshop will be held on the evening of Friday, April 25, and all-day Saturday, April 26. Participants will leave the workshop with a plan for solving the problem they have identified, Copeland-Jacks said.
Elizabeth Ratliff will certainly be there. A volunteer for the Foster Grandparents Program at Columbus School in Bridgeport, Ratliff would like to tackle garbage dumping problems near her Bridgeport home. Several other community members voiced problems and frustrations at the meeting. Tony Tozzi, executive director of the South End Community Center, would like to see more community outreach to get people who care about Bridgeport involved on a regular basis.
So what exactly is PSBH®? PSBH® is a step-by-step process for resolving health-related problems. Step one is to carefully define the problem. Step two is to prioritize the problem, or take realistic pieces of it that can be addressed one at a time. Step three is to define a solution. Step four is to create a good action plan and step five is take action. For example, the former teenage mother wanted to do something to help new teen mothers in her community who were not getting prenatal care and would often get pregnant again after having the first child. The woman identified a small, achievable goal, of hosting baby showers for the mothers. The showers gave the mothers something to look forward to and helped alleviate some of the shame they may have felt, which was preventing them from seeking care. Nurses attended the showers to provide some care and advisement for the pregnant teens, as well as education about how to prevent future pregnancies.
Anyone with an issue and an idea who is interested in participating in the April workshop should call Dr. Lippman at (203) 254-4000, ext. 2710 or Lydia Greiner at (203) 335-6751 for information.
In 1989, The Dreyfus Health Foundation (DHF) held its first Problem Solving for Better Health® (PSBH®) workshop in Beijing, China in collaboration with West China University Medical School. Since that time, our PSBH® program has been established in 26 countries, including the United States. Worldwide, there are more than 5,000 health-related projects that have been completed.
The first PSBH® program began in the United States in 1998 in Miami. Since that time, programs that have been established in Houston, Minneapolis, Newark and Philadelphia have generated over 500 projects, many of which are ongoing.
Problem Solving for Better Health Nursing(TM) (PSBHN(TM)) officially began in 2002. The workshop in Bridgeport, Conn. will be the first workshop of its kind in the United States.

Bassist and composer Brian Torff and his jazz-rock band Thunderstick return to the stage at Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts on Thursday, March 20 at 7 and 8:30 p.m.
Torff, director of Fairfield University's Music Program, recently decided to take the group in a new musical direction, adding a horn section to the original quartet and updating the powerful sounds of the late '60s and early '70s á la Blood, Sweat & Tears and Chicago.
"I always loved that sound," Torff said, "but I wanted to do it my way with a newer kind of style and more modern arrangements."
Torff said he enjoys exploring and expanding the color, power and excitement of a horn-driven band. The creative possibilities have been enhanced by the caliber of horn musicians he's assembled. The new group includes Tony Kadleck and Rex Denton on trumpets, Ken Gioffre on tenor sax and John Fumansoli on trombone. The rhythm section is: Alan Simon, keybords; Torff, bass; Grishna Alexiev, drums; and Diana Herold, percussion.
"They are experienced musicians who have played with groups like Blood, Sweat & Tears, Tower of Power and Smokey Robinson, and for Broadway shows," Torff said. "The level of performance they bring is just stellar."
Torff is so pleased with the new group that they will record a CD later this year.
Torff will introduce several new pieces at the Quick Center show. Included among the premieres are an African-inspired piece called "House of Dzugu," the Cajun-influenced "Zydeco Steps" and "Gnarly Shred," a Reggae ski song. "Starthrower," another new work, is a Brazilian samba featuring Torff on the electric upright stick bass.
Having toured extensively in the United States, Europe, Brazil and South Africa, Torff recently appeared at Birdland in New York City and the French Consulate in Washington, D.C. He was a co-chairperson for the music advisory board for the National Endowment for the Arts.
Tickets for the Quick Center show are $8 for general admission, $5 for student admission. For tickets, call the Quick Center box office at (203) 254-4010 or toll free at 1-877-ARTS-396. For more information, visit the website, www.quickcenter.com.

A group of Fairfield University students will have a night to remember when they travel to Carnegie Corporation in New York on Monday, March 3, to take part in a discussion of ways to engage young people in the civic and political life of their communities. Leaders of organizations dedicated to promoting civic responsibility will discuss the issues from their perspectives. The 6:30 p.m. forum will provide an opportunity for a lively debate and discussion.
Hosted by Carnegie Corporation of New York and Fairfield University, the program will feature a talk on civic engagement by Rev. Bryan Hehir, president and CEO of Catholic Charities USA. Presenting responses will be Neil Grabois, vice president and director of strategic planning and program coordination for the Carnegie Corporation, and Dr. Paul Lakeland, professor of religious studies at Fairfield University and a nationally recognized expert on religion in the public square. Students and representatives from other foundations involved in youth civic engagement issues will take part in the discussion that follows, facilitated by Ms. Susan Robinson King, vice president, public affairs at the Corporation.
The students are members of Fairfield's Ignatian Residential College, an integrated, year-long experience for more than 100 sophomores, who through action and reflection begin to examine the role and impact of religion on civic life and their own individual participation in it. The College, in its first year, was established with a Lilly Endowment grant.
Fairfield University has also established a research partnership with the Office for Social and International Ministries of the Jesuit Conference that will involve students and faculty in research and planning for a wide range of projects with national and international applications.
Created by Andrew Carnegie in 1911, Carnegie Corporation of New York continues his mission to advance and diffuse knowledge and understanding. Currently, the Corporation's major priorities include education reform specifically urban high school redesign and teachers' education reforms, higher education in Africa and the former Soviet Union, international peace and security issues, and strengthening U.S. democratic infrastructures through election reform and civic engagement of youth and immigrants.
Ms. King, who earned her M.A. in Communications from Fairfield, said, "The Corporation believes this interesting mix of leaders, philanthropists and educators can stimulate a discussion with Fairfield's honor college students that we think will enrich our work in shaping the national dialogue about the civic mission of schools as well as challenge the students to think about their role in the public square. This evening may be a model for campuses across the country to focus their top students on the question of their role in the American civic space."
Rev. Hehir was a MacArthur Foundation Fellow (1984-1988) and is a distinguished professor of ethics and international affairs at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. While at Harvard Divinity School for eight years, he became the first Catholic to serve as dean. Earlier in his career he was assigned to the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops in Washington, D.C. Installed as president of Catholic Charities USA in 2001, Fr. Hehir oversees a national network of 1,640 local Catholic Charities agencies and institutions that provide help and create hope for more than seven million people a year regardless of their religious, social, or economic background.
Trained as a mathematician, Mr. Grabois held top management positions in the academic community, including 11 years as president of Colgate University. Prior to that he dedicated 25 years to Williams College where he served as provost of the college, dean of faculty and dean of the college. As a professor of mathematics, he taught at Colgate University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Pennsylvania, among others.
Dr. Lakeland is the author of five books, including "Theology and Critical Theory: The Discourse of the Church" (1990), and "Postmodernity: Christian Identity in a Fragmented Age" (1997). His latest book, "The Liberation of the Laity: In Search of An Accountable Church," will be published in April. In a recent article, "Critique and Engagement: The Ethics of Education," Dr. Lakeland analyzes undergraduate education. He says "The single biggest weakness in the ethos of undergraduate education today is a lack of critical capacity and sensitivity." Education, he suggests, "should produce graduates who can see the connections between individual and social well-being."
Before joining Carnegie Corporation, Ms. King served three cabinet secretaries as a communications strategist, working with Secretaries Robert B. Reich and Alexis Herman at the Department of Labor and with Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Andrew Cuomo. Before that she spent 20 years as a journalist covering national and international issues, including as an anchor in Washington, D.C. and a political analyst.
