A tad early for ice skating, perhaps, given the current weather in Chicago, but not for Shimer! Bev Thurber is a Shimer faculty person who holds a variety of degrees, from MIT to Cambridge University to Cornell, and from Nordic languages to math and other fields. Here's what she has to say on "Euclidean Ice Skating." As a non-skater -- who has never taken IS 2, this is the start of a wonderful education for me. How about you?
