What will football look like in the future? Follow this apparently innocuous question asked in the headline of an article on sports news site SB Nation, and you’re probably expecting a write-up of draft prospects, league policies, statistical predictions, and maybe some musings on the evolution of sports fandom. What you get, however, is Jon Bois’s “17776,” a long-form multimedia speculative fiction narrative longlisted for two Hugo Awards.
Though many polls predicted that President-elect Joe Biden would win the 2020 election by significant margins, the race turned out to be a nail-biter.
As I celebrate the victory of Joe Biden, I am overwhelmed with relief and gratitude that so many Americans were mobilized to vote for decency in this election. Joe Biden has surpassed Obama’s record for the most votes ever received, winning more than 74 million votes in total. Biden’s presidency marks an extraordinarily necessary mending of democracy; his overwhelming voter turnout this year reminds me that so many Americans have recognized the gravity of Trump’s dictatorial tendencies. However, it was not just Biden who achieved a record number of votes — Trump, too, surpassed Obama’s 69.5 million votes in 2008 with a whopping 70 million.
The Spanish and Portuguese department has canceled its summer abroad programs in Argentina, Portugal, and Spain, citing concerns surrounding international travel.
In the fourth payment of a six-year program, the University will mail checks to about 700 local homeowners. The payments follow a 2016 settlement agreement, which resolved a lawsuit challenging the University’s property tax exemptions.
When the Ivy League announced that fall athletic competition was canceled, any plans coaches had made for in-person activities vanished. Teams such as men’s soccer, however, have adapted to their time off-campus, even as uncertainty shrouds their spring season.
During the Nov. 9 Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) meeting, Deputy Dean of the College Elizabeth Colagiuri announced that the University has not lengthened next semester’s spring recess, which will run from March 13-16.
Princeton University has been named among one of several institutions to receive a $53 million grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF). On Oct. 29, the grant was formally awarded to a consortium of scientists at five institutions — Princeton University, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), University of Washington, Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution — to subsidize the construction and deployment of 500 robotic floats for monitoring ocean health.
I read “What TV gets right about sex” by Andi Grene ’24 out of curiosity. I’m not a big TV person, but the cover photo was taken from “Euphoria,” a show I vaguely plan to watch eventually. While I was amused by Grene’s anecdotes of her grandmother’s horror at how “pornographic” TV has become and her personal experiences watching “Big Mouth,” I disagreed with her equating casual sex with female liberation. Any attempt to describe what everyone’s sex life should look like, regardless of whether the intention is to empower or oppress, will inevitably fall short. Any such prescription strips away agency. I will be focusing on the experiences of women in particular, but it is important to recognize that the following questions of sexual agency and choice are ones everyone grapples with.
A few weeks ago, I hustled to one of my lectures — as much as one can to a Zoom call — where we discussed ancient Chinese philosophical texts. In one of the works, there was a story about a carpenter passing by a massive, ancient tree and remarking, “It has no use; that is why it has been able to live so long.”
In a memo sent to all faculty members on Tuesday, Dean of the College Jill Dolan announced University support for two formats for undergraduate courses — hybrid or online — for the spring 2021 semester.
Since being sent to live with my family in March, I have been trying to keep myself alive. I am gay and have been forced to live with my religiously conservative and homophobic family. I fear for my safety.
I voted for the first time in 2016, since I turned 18 two months before the election.
McCarter Theatre has announced plans to prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion, especially to combat systemic racism in American theater.
The Daily Princetonian has been tracking COVID-19 cases in the town of Princeton as well as in the University. Tracked cases for the town span from early April to present day, while University cases have been tracked since the beginning of the fall semester on Aug. 31, 2020.
I love pumpkin spice season. Even if it might be “basic,” food and coffee just tastes a little bit more special with pumpkin pie seasoning and some pumpkin puree.
In March, the men’s volleyball team had yet to finish their season before the semester quickly turned to chaos. While men’s volleyball begins in December, their league matches are played in the spring. On March 11, the Ivy League canceled all spring sports for the remainder of the season. On March 12, the University mandated that all students return home for the remainder of the academic year.
One Saturday in my sophomore year, I ventured all the way from my room in Whitman College to the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding (CAF) to go study with some friends. I was inconvenienced, to say the least. Walking the more than half-mile in the famously-brisk New Jersey November weather was suboptimal. But I went all the way to CAF to study because I wanted to do something that I hadn’t done since I got on campus: study in their African American study space. Once I got there, snacks and water with me as I arrived, I had an underwhelming feeling of the space.
As a young person, there is no better time to stand up against oppression than today. Here at Princeton, we demanded that racist legacy be condemned, and demonstrated that we will never settle for mediocre resolutions. We were successful in renaming Wilson College and positively redefining our narrative. First College —to be renamed for Mellody Hobson ’91 — is our legacy, and history will remember.
