  • Grammar, Logic, and Computation

    Yusuke Kubota

    Yusuke Kubota, Assistant Professor at University of Tsukuba, will give a special lecture on grammar, logic, and computation, and will discuss the underlying connection among the three areas of study. The talk is intended for everyone with or without a particular background in those areas, but for those who are interested in linguistics, philosophy, and computer science may find it particularly intriguing. The talk will be followed by dinner at a dining hall on campus (place to be announced). All are welcome to join.

  • Los Pleneros de la 21

    Los Pleneros de la 21 - 5

    The Puerto Rican music ensemble Los Pleneros de la 21 came to Williams for a concert-performance of bomba music and dance. The musicians and singers easily connected with the crowd and the beat of the drums beckoned everyone to dance for the entire evening. Some brave souls even tried a few bomba moves, and the group ended the night with lively plena song about their cariño for Puerto Rico. The performance was a wonderful way to highlight a vibrant culture and musical genre that has a rich transnational trajectory from Africa to Puerto Rico to Spanish Harlem (NYC) to Williamstown!
