      The Moller-Fraticelli Guitar Duo has been described as a "unique fusion of the Swedish perfection and the Argentinian passion." Award-winning European guitarist Johannes Möller's close collaboration with Argentinean guitarist Laura Fraticelli has resulted in a unique form of musical expression. Their emotional playing style as well as their strong connection and stage presence make their performances unforgettable events. The Duo has performed throughout Europe, North and South America as well as on radio and TV, and has recorded the works of Johann Kaspar Mertz (1806-1856) for the Naxos label. Kenneth Keaton from the American Record Guide calls the duo's album "… simply the finest Mertz I've ever heard. This is tastefully played, often with heartrending beauty." The Duo's Pomona College program will include selections by Johann Kaspar Mertz and Johannes Möller and a variety of Argentinian Tangos.

      In the spirit of Roxane Gay, Rebecca Solnit, and Susan Sontag, Carina Chocano's "You Play the Girl: On Playboy Bunnies, Stepford Wives, Trainwrecks, & Other Mixed Messages" examines the dramatic and often damaging ways that pop culture influences female identity. Cultural touchstones -- from Bugs Bunny to Playboy Bunnies, from "Flashdance" to Frozen -- serve as entry points to Chocano's personal reflections and surface some familiar truths about the challenges of locating oneself in the face of an often abstract ideal of womanhood.

      Junot Díaz's fiction is probing and funny. It's also situated at the often challenging and always complex center of first-generation American experience. Díaz, Dominican Republican-born and New Jersey-bred, has a knack for capturing the messy, maudlin, and majestic dramas of finding one's way in a brand-new world. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" and "This Is How You Lose Her" visits Scripps to reflect on, among other things, they ways that literature and politics intersect. This program is presented in partnership with the Scripps College Humanities Institute and sponsored by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton '42 Fund.

      War, indigenous cultures and inner transformation ferment in "Revolution and Ritual: The Photographs of Sara Castrejón, Graciela Iturbide and Tatiana Parcero. Dr. Mary MacNaughton" will lead a tour of the exhibition and speak about the works of three Mexican women photographers who explore and transform notions of Mexican identity in images that range from the documentary to the poetic.While Castrejón's photos portray people under the intense pressure of war, Graciela Iturbide's images shed light on life in Mexico's indigenous cultures. Tatiana Parcero takes the medium in yet another direction, creating self-portraits that incorporate spliced images of her body with cosmological maps and Aztec codices.By bringing their work into conversation, Revolution and Ritual invites readers to consider how photography has been transformed over the past century in Mexico and how it continues to respond to artists' interest in representing present and past, self and other.
