Ithaca College has had a very successful partnership with Longview, a retirement community located on Danby Road, for the past 15 years. Part of this relationship has involved an ongoing Faculty & Staff Lecture Series at Longview.
We are looking for speakers for the following Wednesday evenings (7-8 PM): August 27th; September 3rd or 24th; October 1st or 22nd; November 5th; and December 3rd. Lectures are held in the Longview auditorium.
This is a great opportunity to share expertise on a topic with a very appreciative audience! Contact Chris Pogorzala, the IC/LV Coordinator at 274-1051 or firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Examples of presentations from the past academic year include:
· Women’s Humor in Qatar: Cultural Perceptions of Women and Women’s Voice
· Adrienne Rich: A Celebration: Poetry Reading
· The Cold War in Books and in Memory
· The History of The Ithaca College/Longview Partnership
· Laugh at Yourself First, Before Anyone Else Can!: Reading of Humorous Verse
· Conversations with a “21st Century Mystic” – A Lecture Based on Fieldwork in the Ashram of a Female Guru in India
