In an Olin Arts Center practice room, El Khansaa Kaddioui '20 of Elhajeb, Morocco, takes an oud lesson from Amos Libby, a member of the Bates applied music faculty. The oud is short-neck lute-type, pear-shaped stringed instrument that is central to Middle Eastern music.
Libby began his study of Middle Eastern music and oud technique with the late oud master and composer Udi Alan Shavarsh Bardezbanian, and has continued his study of his oud and Arabic and Turkish music through regular and extensive travel to meet with teachers in the Middle East and Turkey.

(From left) Professor of French and Francophone Studies Kirk Read and Assistant Professor of Theater Timothy Dugan Jr. strike a pose next to Chase Hall as part of the college's Green Dot Week.
Members of the Bates community who have participated in Green Dot training were asked to wear their t-shirts, hats, pins, and stickers today as part of a collective, proactive Green Dot.
Read and Dugan completed their Green Dot training yesterday, when they received their shirts. They commented that several students in each of their classes today were wearing the shirts, personifying what these two colleagues see as a Bates sense of community which promotes an ethos of looking after each other.
Green Dot is a bystander training program involving Bates students, faculty, and staff which teaches research-based intervention methods to help stop and prevent power-based violence.
