Senior Jessica Lipton shared her unique research perspective on North Korea's Kim regime as one of a select group of New England-area undergraduates invited to participate in an art history symposium at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

    Boston College Student Jessica Lipton Presents Research at Symposium at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
    "I'm very excited to present my paper," Lipton said last week ahead of the competition. "I think it will be a great experience to share my own research in an academic setting." Her paper focuses on the North Korean state mausoleum Kumsusan Memorial Palace as an active agent in legitimizing the family-state structure of North Korea, namely the Kim family regime, she explained.

McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College has acquired a rich trove of Coptic textiles, and an extensive library of accompanying volumes, from collectors Donald and Barbara Tellalian of Newton, Mass. The Tellalian Collection—which comprises thirty-four Late Antique/Coptic textiles from the fourth to eighth century—is significant due to the quality, importance, and conservation of the textiles, as well as the related comprehensive library of 129 books and folios, many of which are rare volumes. Such textiles are thought to have been produced by Copts (Christian Egyptians) and other weavers throughout the Byzantine Empire. Their designs and motifs influenced the visual repertoire of the early Islamic period.

"Scripture advises us that we should turn the other cheek to violence. However, my Jesuit training has taught me that in addition to nonviolent resistance we should hit back with love. My beautiful, loving wife, Jessica, and I were blown up in the name of God. Our bodies were torn apart and our psyches shattered in the name of religion. We were casualties of a religious war. At least that’s what we were led to believe." So begins an essay Patrick Downes, a a graduate of the Boston College Lynch School of Education and a Boston Marathon bombing survivor, writes for "C21 Resources," a publication of the The Church in the 21st Century Center (C21 Center).

    The Antidote is Love
    It will always triumph over hate, writes BC alumnus, Boston Marathon bombing survivor Patrick Downes Campus & Community / Alumni - Published on April 12, 2018 Patrick Downes and Jessica Kensky, moments after Downes, running with a prosthetic blade, completed the Boston Marathon on April 18, 2016.

At age seven, Dorje Dolma was living in one of the most remote places in the world, protecting her family's goats and sheep from wolves and snow leopards. Three years later, when facing a life-threatening condition, Dolma encountered former Boston College soccer player Jennifer Cleary--daughter of Margaret McCluskey Cleary '59, MS '61 and the late Gerald Cleary '52--who would become her adoptive mother. Dolma recounts her amazing journey in her new memoir, Yak Girl: Growing Up in the Remote Dolpo Region of Nepal, which includes a foreword by Cleary. h/t Dorje Arts Yak Girl

    Granddaughter of Boston College Alumni Shares Story of Her Childhood in Nepal Mountains
    In a recent author talk at Boston College, Dolma recalled happy times from her childhood. "The river was my friend and my playground. I sang songs along to the soothing sounds of the water, and with the gifts the river brought down-sticks and stones-I built little rock houses."

The University community mourns the death of Boston College School of Social Work alumna Christine Loeber MSW'08, executive director of The Pathway Home treatment center for veterans in Yountville, California. Ms. Loeber, who was a gifted student and passionate about serving those suffering from mental illness, was killed on March 9, along with two colleagues at the center, by a veteran who had been treated for post-traumatic stress disorder.

    Victim from Easton 'passionate about helping'
    At the heart of Friday's killings of three women in a hostage standoff at a sprawling California veterans' home was a single terrible irony: The three victims, including an Easton native, had devoted their lives, friends say, to helping the kind of traumatized veteran who authorities say took their lives.
