The quiet majesty of East Pyne was shattered on Thursday, April 14, as news spread across campus that Academy Award-nominated director Christopher Nolan was on campus shooting his upcoming film “Oppenheimer.” Hundreds of people crowded around the courtyard, some on the ground in the hot sun and others pressed against windows, jostling one another for the chance to glimpse a celebrity.
LGBTQ+ communities inhabit the continually shifting terrain of “identity politics” — the notion that affiliating with an identity group provides an adequate political and social agenda — which, at the moment, is historically under scrutiny from both the left and the right. To align your politics and values with an aspect of your identity — be it gender, sexuality, race, class or ability — seems to some narrow and exclusive. To others, it’s a necessary affirmation of marginalized people in the face of hegemonic power, a portal into a broader social analysis.

In episode 9 of the Orange Table, we talk Black hair on campus. It’s no surprise that Black hair has been the subject of historical stigmatization and criticism. However, is this stigma present on Princeton’s campus today? What do Black students have to say about the way that their Black hair embodies their identity on campus? And does the University offer adequate accommodations for Black hair? Listen in.

When representatives of the shires and boroughs were first called to Parliament in England, they were not intended to be a check on the power of the King. They were prominent knights, there to give legitimacy to the acts of the King, not to challenge his authority. Over time, that system evolved and became the House of Commons, a genuinely representative body. Democracy grows like that: you get your foot in the door of power and then make your presence felt until you have a genuine voice.
The Tigers are continuing to slide.

Referendum No. 3, which calls on the University administration to halt the use of Caterpillar construction machinery on campus expansion projects, met the threshold to be passed during the Spring Undergraduate Student Government (USG) election cycle this week, according to preliminary election results made public early on Wednesday, April 13.
Carla Berube is the head coach of the Princeton women’s basketball team, which went 25–5 overall — including posting an undefeated 14–0 record in the Ivy League — in its most recent season. The team competed in the first two rounds of the NCAA March Madness tournament before falling to Indiana in a nailbiter.
In response to the recent Caterpillar referendum, certain people on campus chose to respond in a way that feigned good faith but when examined more closely, betrayed a misleading, false neutrality. Rabbi Julie Roth, representing the Center for Jewish Life (CJL), sent out an update to “alumni, parents, and friends” of the CJL, thankfully excluding most current undergraduates. Her email expressed the institutional commitment of the CJL to opposing the referendum, all the while validating all Jewish students “regardless of their position on the referendum.” Following this, former Israeli Defense Forces soldier Jacob Katz professed uncertainty about the complexity of the conflict in order to disarm criticism of Palestinian oppression by Israel.
The Tigers in Town program, which funnelled more than $170,000 into local businesses during the Spring 2021 semester, will expand in the Fall 2022 semester, according to Deputy Dean of Undergraduate Students Thomas Dunne.
