Andrew Utterson, assistant professor in the Roy H. Park School of Communications, was recently reappointed in the role of Regional Visiting Fellow at the Cornell Institute for European Studies (CIES), part of Cornell University’s Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies. This is his third year of affiliation.
In his previous year as fellow, Utterson sought to foster links between Ithaca College’s own agenda of internationalization and the CIES’s remit to broaden the study of European languages, culture, and society. As well as delivering a guest lecture on a Cornell course in Global Cinema, and numerous public introductions to European film screenings at Cornell Cinema, he developed curricular links between his Ithaca Seminar in Contemporary European Cinema (exploring the Integrative Core Curriculum theme of Identities) and the intellectual and cultural events and activities at Cornell.

In 1971 a small group of citizens, horrified at the seemingly endless war in Vietnam and government harassment of peaceful organizers and civil rights and antiwar activists, mustered their courage and creativity and did something completely crazy: They burglarized an FBI office in the Philadelphia suburb of Media, Pennsylvania.
On the night of one of the biggest sporting events of the decade, they broke in and hauled off every document in the place. They spent the next weeks combing through the papers, copying the most damning and mailing them off to various journalists. They believed that once Congress members and the public knew, they'd do something to change FBI operations.

Phoebe Constantinou, associate professor in the Department of Health Promotion and Physical Education, recently published an article entitled, "Promoting Healthy Competition Using Modified Rules and Sports from Other Cultures" in the peer-reviewed journal, Strategies, Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, (volume 27, number 4, pages 29-33).
The article looks at the original meaning of competition and how it has evolved to the present day. Constantinou considers ideas for modifying rules and implementing activities from other cultures, which can intensify the benefits of competition while reducing the potential negative effects.
