Matthew Holtmeier, postdoctoral teaching fellow in Screen Studies, authored an article in the anthology Cinematic Homecomings: Exile and Return in Transnational Cinema.
His piece, titled "Burning Straw Men: The 1979 Revolution and Bahman Farmanara's Stubborn Cosmopolitanism," explores director Bahman Farmanara's departure from Iran due to the 1979 revolution, and his subsequent return after working as a producer abroad. The films Farmanara made after returning to Iran illustrate the director's 'stubborn cosmopolitanism,' despite the newly structured sense of national identity in post-revolution Iran.

Steven Jakobi to Speak this Wednesday about Efforts to Restore the American Chestnut Tree – Once a Primary Component of our Native Forests and Now on the Brink of Extinction
Contributed by Carol Hansen on 11/09/2014
The American chestnut tree has been a central part of the ecosystem of central New York and the rest of the eastern United States, once covering 25% of the forest canopy. Its presence in American music, literature, house and barn construction, furniture-making, and history makes it an integral part of our culture. However, what once was a vital economic and ecological mainstay is now on the brink of extinction. Professor Steven Jakobi of Alfred State College will talk on what has happened to this grand tree, and what is currently being done to bring this tree back as a vital component of our local forests. Jakobi graduated with a PhD in in Plant Pathology from West Virginia University, where he researched hypovirulence as a way to increase American chestnut survival against the invasive fungus afflicting it.
