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.
