In this TedTalk, Smith Associate Professor of History Elizabeth Stordeur Pryor examines one of the most divisive words in the English language: the n-word. She specializes in 19th-century U.S. history and race. Her essay “The Etymology of [the n-word]: Resistance, Language, and the Politics of Freedom in the Antebellum North” won the Ralph D. Gray Prize for the best article of 2016 in the Journal of the Early Republic.   The Smith College senior class held an impromptu graduation ceremony on March 13, before the deadline for students to move out of campus housing. They were asked to leave for the remainder of the spring semester due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus. As the majority of colleges and universities across the world have done, Smith is offering alternate delivery modes of teaching beginning March 30. Despite majoring in studio art at Smith, Scout Cuomo ’06 never imagined that she would be able to make a living with her art. But because of online marketplace sites, Cuomo, who is based in western Massachusetts, sells her work to buyers around the world. She recently had her first exhibit at Smith. She talks about the experience of returning to campus, why she chose the theme of water for her show, and her hopes for the future.
