Closure of Quad Road for Reconfiguration and Repaving June 28
On Thursday, June 28, the west, east and south sections of the Quad Road will be closed to allow for reconfiguration and repaving. The reconfiguration involves narrowing the roadway on the south end of the Quad to redistribute the existing parking to the north end of the Quad. The Quad will have the same number of parking spaces that it has had for the past three years. The work will occur on the west side of the Quad from Johnson Chapel south, and on the east side of the Quad from James Dorm south. There will also be roadwork and repaving on and around the Charles Pratt construction site. While the road is closed there will be no vehicular traffic or parking allowed. The north section of the Quad Road (in front of Frost Library) will become two-way and parking will be prohibited.

In Memoriam: Visiting Professor Mirjana (Minja) Lausevic
Mirjana (Minja) Lausevic, visiting Valentine Professor of Music at Amherst College (2006-07) and Associate Professor at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, died of a recurrent illness on July 15 in Western Massachusetts. Lausevic was born and raised in the multi-ethnic city of Sarajevo in the former Yugoslavia. She earned her bachelor's degree in musicology-ethnomusicology from Sarajevo University in 1988. Much of her research since that time examines how music has helped both unite and divide ethnic groups in her native Balkans. She came to the United States in 1991 and earned her master's degree (in 1993) and doctorate (in 1998) in ethnomusicology at Wesleyan University. She has published numerous articles based on her fieldwork in the towns and countryside of Bosnia, Serbia, Croatia, and more recently, the United States. In her book, "Balkan Fascination" (Oxford University Press, 2007), Lausevic explored the multiple roles and meanings Balkan music has had in the United States over the last century. In addition to her scholarly work, Lausevic was an active performing musician. She once led a traditional Bosnian vocal group named Yu-Etno; in New England, she sang and played keyboard with her group Zabe i Babe, which recorded the compact disc Drumovi (Bison Publishing) and was featured on public television's Exploring Worlds of Music series. She has also been a regular member of shape-note/sacred harp singing communities in Northampton and Minneapolis. In addition to Amherst College and the University of Minnesota, Lausevic has taught at Dartmouth College. She leaves her husband, Tim Eriksen '88, her two children, Anja (3) and Luka (5), her mother, and her brother Dragan Lausevic of Whistler, BC.
