It is 3 credits and will be offered on TR 9:25 – 10:50 in Smiddy 108.  For the description, please go to the blog section Spring 2018 Advising Notes.

Attend a Faculty-led conversation about Placing and Displacing Memories: Globalizing Visual and Sonic Histories

Research Forum
Placing and Displacing Memories: Globalizing Visual and Sonic Histories

Monday, November 13, 2017
Clark Lounge, Campus Center,
Ithaca College
9:00 am–11:00 am

This international forum engages faculty from a range of disciplines across Ithaca College to address the question of what happens to site-specific memories and histories when mediated in the era of uneven globalization.

As historical events, places, and nations are increasingly understood as embedded within wider networks of transnational and other global connections, this interactive, discussion-driven forum explores how visual and sonic media reflect as well as intervene in this transition. It explores a series of questions, case studies, and dialogues.

Faculty-led conversation and dialogue. Students are welcome to come and observe.

Convenors: Matt Holtmeier, Sueyoung Park Primiano, Andrew Utterson, Patricia Zimmermann (MASS)

Public Viewing Night at Ford Observatory Friday 11/3

Interested in astronomy? Come view the night sky with the IC Physics Department at the on-campus Clinton B. Ford Observatory this Friday from 8:00-10:00 p.m. Here’s how to attend (for free!):

Show up the vehicle ‘turn around’ in front of the entrances of Smiddy Hall and CHS (F lot side). A ‘shuttle van’ will make regular runs to convey people up to the observatory and back down. Please note that there is NO parking available up at the observatory and that the access road is NOT lighted. For your own safety, please do not walk up.

Bad Weather Plan
The “go/no-go” decision for any public night will be made at 3:30 p.m. on the scheduled date. The IC Physics web page and the recorded message at the observatory will be updated shortly thereafter to reflect the decision for that evening. If you check the website or call the observatory at 607-274-3012 after 4:00 p.m., you will get the final decision for that evening.
