Last weekend, on a perfect – and so rare! – spring day, ENVS students Zoe Miller, Maddie Menges, Sam Donato, Jeremy Poe and Tori Chamberlain participated in the intensive international Cyber-Tracker certification course, which tested their ability to read track and sign in the landscape. They were accompanied by ENVS faculty Jason Hamilton, Tim Drake and Justin Sutera from Primitive Pursuits, as well as three others from the Greater Ithaca community. George Leoniak from Vermont, one of six national evaluators, led the Cyber-Tracker course, which was originally developed in South Africa to qualify trackers for research and ecotourism. It has since grown to become the only international standard for wildlife tracking.

Ioanide presented key ideas from her forthcoming book, The Emotional Politics of Racism: How Feelings Trump Facts in an Era of Colorblindness (Stanford University Press) at Hobart and William Smith Colleges on April 23, 2015 in Geneva, NY. Invited by the Political Science, Education, and Music Departments, Ioanide met an engaging and energized crowd of 150 students and faculty members to discuss the emotional and irrational dimensions of contemporary gendered racism and nativism. She concluded her talk with a discussion on ethical witnessing and the significance of protest/cultural creation in the realignment of the emotional geographies of our bodies toward justice. Ioanide’s book was named one of Flavorwire’s 10 Must-Read Academic Books of 2015 and is available for pre-ordering at Amazon.com.
