Submitted on behalf of Carrie Cadwell Brown, executive director of alumni relations

The Ithaca College Alumni Association Board of Directors includes two student members who serve two-year terms. One of these student members serves as a liaison between the Student Governance Council (SGC) and the alumni association board. We need your help to nominate someone you know (or yourself!) to serve in this capacity on the alumni association board.

Student directors are full members of the alumni association board. They serve on committees and work on projects related to the board's efforts to get alumni and students more involved with IC and with one another. They also provide a valuable student perspective to IC's alumni community. This student director, specifically, will attend both SGC and alumni association board meetings, and update both the SGC and the alumni association board on projects and initiatives that each body is working on.

The article, titled “The Modern Political Cinema: From Third Cinema to Contemporary Networked Biopolitics,” looks at a qualitative shift in global political cinemas within the new era of globalization. Outside the Law reworks the earlier Battle of Algiers in order to situate the Algerian Revolution in an increasingly globalizing world. This acknowledgement has important ramifications for the production of political subjectivity, which is both fragmented and networked by global flows of information, economies, and people. The cinematic production of subjectivity offers an important critique of Samuel P. Huntington’s Clash of the Civilizations, illustrating the unique potential of film to enter into contemporary debates surrounding international relations.
