A public conversation marking Constitution Day, "Targeted Killings, the Constitution, and You: U.S. Drone Policy and Citizens’ Rights,” will be held on Wed., Sept. 17, 2014, 7:30–9:30 pm in Emerson Suites, Campus Center.
Recent drone technology has several promising business and benign applications. But it also has some frightening ones -- such as targeting and killing people. The U.S. government claims “targeted killings” are necessary for national defense and fighting terrorism, yet many innocent civilians in several countries have been killed by drones. Outrage has grown about these deaths and about the fact that President Obama has claimed constitutional authority as commander in chief to use drones to kill U.S. citizens accused of potential or actual terrorist acts.

Carlos Figueroa has just published a book Foreword for a collection of scripts/plays by Tony Broadwick titled "You're Not Listening and Other Plays"
Contributed by Kimberly Anderson on 09/03/2014
Carlos Figueroa, assistant professor in the Politics Department, has just published a book Foreword for a collection of scripts/plays by Tony Broadwick titled You're Not Listening and Other Plays (Fountainhead Press, 2014) that challenges us to take seriously what Figueroa calls "the dominance of ascriptive markers thinking,"; that is, the politics of categories of difference (race, ethnicity, class, gender, religion, among others) that often get in the way of substantive human communication and relations. These categories of difference are structured and defined by unequal power relations among & between people who are situated within shifting often controversial institutional and communal spaces. Figueroa writes, in the early decades of "the 21st Century, scholars, writers, and poets have explored, and revisited the concepts of race, ethnicity, class, gender, religion, and sexual orientation, and their relations to identity, citizenship and communal politics within a number of historical contexts, policy debates and public discourses.
