Professor Jeff Sharlet to speak at Annual DGALA Mini-Reunion

Professor Jeff Sharlet, the recipient of The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission’s 2011 Outspoken Award and the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association’s 2011 Excellence in Journalism Award for Excellence in Feature Writing, will be the featured speaker at DGALA’s annual mini-reunion in Hanover. The mini-reunion will take place Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16 and will also include our annual breakfast with the President of the College, a private tour of the Hood Museum and a cocktail reception. Dorm housing is available but extremely limited this year — if you are interested, please email us ASAP.

  1. Breakfast start time needs to be 7:30 a.m. so as not to be in conflict with the Class of ’77 panel with Frenandez, Gigot and Bloomberg. All classes can attend the panel.

    • Hi Jim, I appreciate your concern, which had also been forwarded to us in January by one of your classmates. Unfortunately, the ’77 reunion planning committee must have overlooked the annual DGALA breakfast when putting together its schedule (the DGALA breakfast has been in the 8:30 time slot for at least 6 years) and we were unable to move it due to the President’s schedule. Hope you’ll be able to find a way to catch up with DGALA at some other point during the weekend. Best, Susi.

      • Seems like the breakfast could start at 7:30 so alums could connect. I’m not concerned about hearing Kim for 2 reasons: 1) he’s speaking to all classes later that morning in Spaulding and 2) he’s soon to be a non-issue at Dartmouth as he moves to the World Bank.


  2. Hi Jim,
    I hear you, but the flip side of the points you’ve raised is that 1) DGALA members generally view the President’s visit to our breakfast as a more intimate way to interact with the President, and 2) even though he will be leaving Dartmouth, I think a lot of people may be interested in having the opportunity to engage with him more personally. Also, frankly, a 7:30 start time is just too early, particularly in light of the fact that we will have an event the evening before. We have a number of other events taking place over the weekend, including the aforementioned drinks, Professor Sharlet’s discussion and a private DGALA tour of the Hood museum. I hope you’ll be able to join us for one or more of those.

    • Hi Susi:

      Is the schedule of events posted? I didn’t see it. We hope to attend many of them.
