Steve Seidman, professor emeritus and lecturer in the Department of Strategic Communication, has written an article, which appears in the Fall 2013 issue of the Phi Kappa Phi Forum. The theme of the issue is "Funny Business," and Dr. Seidman's piece is titled "U.S. Presidential Campaign Slogans: In Other Word …," and it deals with the manipulation of American voters through catchphrases, giving examples from 1800 through 2012.

The Phi Kappa Phi Forum is a quarterly magazine published by The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi.

Claudia Pederson, assistant professor of screen studies, was invited by the Goethe Institute (Germany) to conduct a presentation and present her collaborative project, Gün, with the Turkish American artist Arzu Ozkal, at the exhibition “ArtUP! Media Art in Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey “ in Athens, Greece.

Gün draws on the Turkish tradition of women’s social gatherings called “gün” (meaning “day” in English). A gün is a ladies’ gathering that involves conversation, activities and festivities accompanied by the serving of Turkish food. Gün(s) are informal hubs of social networks where women exchange recipes and skills, share opinions and remedies, and discuss issues and concerns about their local communities.
