The most recent version of Firefox, version 37, is not working with Parnassus (on Mac or Windows). If you are seeing a “secure connection failed” error page when trying to log into Parnassus, you probably have version 37. Do not attempt to check the version, since checking the version will often initiate the update to the latest version, if one is available.

The only workaround at this time is to use a different Web browser such as Internet Explorer or Chrome on Windows, or Safari or Chrome on Mac.

Difference isn’t the problem, discourse is! CMST assistant professor Christopher House will offer CLTC 10000:01 Introduction to Communication and Culture as an online course during the 2015 May Session (May 12- May 22). 

As such, this course explores and interrogates the ways that communication (e.g., language, media, and discourse) establishes and enacts identity and power dynamics. In thinking about communication as global citizens, our online discussions of, for example, movies like Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004) and Snowpiercer (Joon-ho bong, 2013) will help us to understand how social identities are constructed, institutionalized, changed, contested and/or appropriated by various social groups. 

This course fulfills Liberal Arts general education and ICC Diversity requirements. To enroll, search course number: CLTC 10000 01 (CRN 10009) for Summer 2015 term on Homerconnect.

Let's make history together. Join us for the first ever Ithaca Pan Asian American Film Festival. This week-long event celebrates the beauty, diversity, and complexity of the Pan Asian experience. Monday's festivities will focus specifically on Asian Americans in Ithaca.
