Happy Friday the 13th! Exclusive documentary screening today about Professor Josiah Carberry


Are you itching to check out the new Patrick Ma Digital Scholarship Lab? Yeah, we thought so. Calling Brown’s most curious minds (and all spicy with-eaters Josiah aficionados who want to know more about the eatery’s namesake): the Rock invites you to an exclusive screening of Made Not Born, a biographical documentary on the elusive “psychoceramics” professor, Josiah Carberry. (Yes, psychoceramics is the study of “cracked pots.” ) Come to the Rock for the 5:30 screening to learn more about the idiosyncrasies of the legend himself. Snacks from The Carberry Cookbook: From Nuts to Soup will definitely be provided, so no meal swipe or entry fee necessary!

We know you’re highly anticipate 2013’s most exciting premiere; in the meantime, check out this list of Josiah Carberry’s probable friends, relatives, and acquaintances who have walked through the Van Wickle Gates in the last thirty years. However, Brown’s top researchers still need your help. If you have any evidence about the legend himself or any of the Brunonians on the Thirty Under Thirty list, post to Instagram using the hashtag #josiahcarberry.

See you at the screening!

Happy Carberry Day!

It’s Friday the 13th, and you know what that means — no, you’re not in a horror movie, it’s just Carberry Day! You may have received a strange email from Professor Josiah Carberry this morning, announcing the cancellation of his psychoceramics lecture. Professor Carberry also has two requests for students this year — the first, which he asks every Friday the 13th, is to leave your loose change in assorted containers left around campus for books, “which he might or might not approve of.”  In case you were wondering, we still don’t really know what that means, but trust in Carberry. Carberry’s second request was for donations to Brown’s Annual Fund in honor of Ruth. Sneakily asking for our money in two different ways? We see you, Josiah. We see you.
