Difference isn’t the problem. Discourse is! CMST assistant professor Christopher House will offer "CLTC 10000:01 Introduction to Communication and Culture" as an online course during Winter Session 2016 (Jan 11- Jan 21).

In this course, students explore and interrogate the ways that communication (e.g., language, media, and discourse) establishes and enacts identity power dynamics. In thinking about communication as global citizens, our online discussions of, for example, movies like Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004) and Snowpiercer (Joon-ho bong, 2013) help us to understand how social identities are constructed, institutionalized, changed, contested and/or appropriated by various social groups.

This course fulfills Liberal Arts general education and ICC Diversity requirements. To enroll, search course number CLTC 10000 for Winter 2016 term on Homerconnect.

Dining Services' Administrative Offices will be closed on Wednesday, January 13th for an all-employee meeting. Admin operations will resume at 8:30 AM on Thursday, January 14th.

Back to Life. Back to Reality. Back to Routine!

I don't know about you but 2015 was one of my most challenging years. After breaking my foot in June, needing an expensive car repair on top of the expensive doctor bills, planning and saving for my mom's retirement party, stopping my personal training and watching my stomach, butt and thighs grow and grow, here I am in 2016 larger than I've been in 7 years!

 No more carping about out-of-tune singing (for the rest of 2015). No more bemoaning directors who don't seem to like the art of opera (for the next five minutes). No more worrying whether traditional opera will go the way of all flesh (for the next few days, at least). It's time to give up on my Scrooge tendencies and be thankful for the gifts that opera gave me, in and around New York this past year, alphabetically speaking.  He makes this list with singers like Jamie Barton, Diana Damrau, Christine Goerke, Stephanie Blythe, and more....
