Delaney Schlesinger-Devlin pursued Bachelor of Arts in Psychology of Social Behavior with a focus in Global and Transnational Engagement as well as a focus in French Language and Culture. Delaney grew up wanting to travel and explore the world and they enjoyed having this experience with the help of Antioch's co-op program.

On the Job: Shinkle ’25 as a Gallery Assistant in the Herndon Gallery

Jun 29, 2022
 

Legend holds that an Antiochian can be parachuted anywhere, and they’ll find a job, a place to live, and some friends within three days…

The Co-Op Interview Project provides a chance for students to discuss their co-op experiences and explore how current Antiochians shape the world. This is a peer-to-peer project where students can reflect on the things they learned, how their participation has effected them, and where they want to go next. All of this not only helps showcase the amazing work that Antiochians are doing, but also serves as a time-capsule to look back on.

Seasoning French Language with Cary Campbell, Professor of French Language and Culture at Antioch College

Jun 22, 2022
 

Instructor of French Dr. Cary Campbell comes to Antioch College most recently from the University of Pittsburgh where he served for two years as their Coordinator of French Language programs. He also trained there both as a linguist and as a literary scholar.  From his undergraduate training both in Linguistics and French, he developed interests in language pedagogy, syntax, Romantic and Francophone narrative fiction. They eventually culminated in his MA in literature and linguistics, and in his PhD in African literature with a dissertation focusing on the construction of national identity in recent novels from Côte d’Ivoire. Today, he is broadening his dissertation topic into a book project comparing literary representations of national identity across a range of African Francophone countries.

While pursuing this education, Dr. Campbell kept a busy schedule teaching all levels of French, as well as courses in phonology, approaches to literature, the history of the French Atlantic, the African novel of French expression, and Anticolonialism. His fifteen years of teaching experience has also included collaboration on several online French textbooks and interactive video-based French courses, earning him Contributing Author credits on Carnegie Mellon’s award winning Open Learning Initiative French Online program. Dr. Campbell has a long history of applying proficiency-based and communicative methods in the classroom and in infusing all his classes, from elementary French to advanced literature, with the cultural products, practices and perspectives he developed a love for during his overseas experiences in France and in Côte d’Ivoire.

Direct Action: Jennifer Grubbs on “Ecoliberation: Reimagining Resistance and the Green Scare”

May 31, 2022
 

Dr. Jennifer Grubbs, Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Prison Justice Initiative convener at Antioch College, has recently complete her first, sole-authored book, Ecoliberation: Reimagining Resistance and the Green Scare which has be published last year by McGill-Queen’s University Press.  An overview of this books is as follows:

“Disenchanted by indirect forms of protest designed to work within existing systems of corporate and state power, animal and earth liberation activists have turned instead to direct action. In this detailed ethnographic account Jennifer Grubbs takes the reader inside the complicated, intricate world of these powerful and controversial interventions, nuancing the harrowing realities of political repression with the inspiring, clever ways that activists resist. Grubbs draws on her personal experiences within the movement to offer a thoughtful and intersectional analysis. Tracing the strategies of liberationist activists as they grapple with doing activism under extreme repression, Ecoliberation challenges ubiquitous frameworks that position protestors as either good or bad by showing how activists playfully and confrontationally enact radical social change. Nearly a decade in the making, the book looks back at the notorious period of repression called the Green Scare and draws contemporary connections to the creep of fascism under President Donald Trump. In stories that are simultaneously heartbreaking, riddled with tension and contradiction, and inspiring, Grubbs proves that whether or not the revolution is televised, it will be spectacular.”

The Only Sporting Event: Delaney Schlesinger-Devlin ’22 and S. Quinn Ritzhaupt ’23 with Camelot 2022

May 11, 2022
 

The Camelot Gran Prix Bike Race returned to the Horseshoe for the second year in a row this Spring! On May 7th at 2:00pm, hopeful bikers once again gathered to prove themselves in one of the most grueling (and perhaps only) sporting events Antioch College allows.

What is Camelot?

Camelot is an Antioch tradition dating back to the 60s. To simply put it: it’s a bike race! And it’s 100 laps. And also people will be throwing Camelot Juice at the riders.

What is Camelot Juice? 

Camelot has had any iterations in its day, but nowadays Camelot Juice is anything that’s completely vegan and compostable! We provided some, but it’s always best to bring your own!

How can I participate?

This event is open to the Antioch Community. Folks can sign up to ride in the race.  For those who don’t want to get as messy you can be a “thrower”, simply arrive on the Horseshoe and wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy!

 

Special thanks to S. Quinn Ritzhaupt ’23 and Delaney Schlesinger-Devlin ’22 for organizing the event!

A dedication to Lola Roxanne’s (’22) Tooth. You used to chew chips, now you are chipped.

Back at it Again: Delaney S-D ’22 as Co-Op Media Creator

Apr 18, 2022
 

 

Hello All of Antioch College. Antioch Engaged once again has a student to support its efforts in showcasing the social practice and professional engagement of the Antioch community! My name is Delaney Schlesinger-Devlin and I have recently been hired as a student blog editor for Antioch Engaged under the Antioch Works program. 

I am currently a fourth year student who is majoring in Psychology of Social Behavior with a focus in French Language and Culture. Besides working in the Co-Op department, I serve as Co-Chair of Community Council and work on campus events, like Camelot! I love to read and go for walks in the Glen Helen. It is my last quarter on campus and I look forward to starting my MSW this fall. 

Along with Richard Kraince, Luisa Bieri, and Beth Bridgeman, I will be working to edit and publish the recent student co-op stories, as well as creating more media like Co-Op Swap 2.0 and staff and faculty spotlights.

I hope to showcase the amazing work our campus is doing. Please feel free to let me know if you have any suggestions regarding Antioch Engaged or if you know of any interesting experiences that Antioch faculty, staff and students are having!
