Chip Gagnon, Assoc. Prof of Politics, gave an invited talk at the Center for Southeast European Studies at the University of Graz, Austria, on October 27.  The talk, focusing on his current research project, was entitled "Missionaries for Democracy: What can religious missionary work tell us about liberal political systems?"

Please visit the Intercom story dated 10/24/2014 for all the pertinent information. The discussion topic is “Stay on Track for the Holidays”. Now is the perfect time to set the foundation for getting through the holidays...and beyond!

It just so happens that for the very first time, the WW@W Open House falls on the same day as the Employee Benefits & Work/Life Fair in Emerson Suites from 10:00am – 3:00pm. We will have a table there—stop by and say hello!

Please scroll down to the comments to read a couple personal stories shared by currently active members. Very inspiring.

Ruth Irupé Sanabria will be giving a reading at Ithaca College!  

Monday, November 3rd at 5:30pm

Textor 103. 

Irupé Sanabria's work is a powerful testament to her bilingualism and biculturalism. Along with capturing her unique experience as a young Latina in the U.S., her poetry is testimony to her experience as a daughter of political prisoners in Argentina and the experience of forced exile to the United States.

 Ruth Irupé Sanabria is the recent winner of the Letras Latinas/Red Hen Poetry Prize and her work, When the Strange House Testifies (Bilingual Press)was named 2nd best Latino book of poetry of the year in 2010.
