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.

As many as 90% of U.S. adults have low back pain at some time in their life and will visit a doctor for this pain.  Men and women are equally affected.  All of us can benefit from the exercises and therapeutic yoga poses, whether we have chronic back pain (more than 3 months of continuous daily pain) or have recently had an injury to the back.  Even those without pain can strengthen their back and improve their posture, keeping the back healthy for years and years. Why wait until you need to see the doctor for pain or depend on daily pain medication to function in your day?  Healthy management of back pain will be discussed and demonstrated by James Eavenson

When sending a message to a Majordomo mailing list, always use the format of "listname@lists.ithaca.edu". While you may sometimes see an address like "listname@icsun.ithaca.edu", that format refers to a specific server name (icsun in this case) and will no longer work if the server name changes.

Using listname@lists.ithaca.edu ensures that your list messages won't bounce due to an invalid address format.
