July 2005

  • Fulana gave a 4-day parody/satire workshop at Encuentro Latino: A Dartmouth Summer Arts Festival. The students were absolutely amazing and formed their own satire collective, The Guey. Their final project for the workshop was a satire of The Dartmouth newspaper in which they questioned what they see as a glaring double-standard: How come Dartmouth’s Department of Safety & Security (SNS) deports Mexican day laborers for “noise and rowdiness, while allowing underage fraternity boys to get drunk and party (noisily and rowdily) on a regular basis? The Guey created the satirical front cover of “El Dartmouth” and placed it in The Dartmouth’s bins around campus overnight. The following morning, “El Dartmouth” was studied in two academic courses by professors who had happened upon the piece.
