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.

Olivia Abry (Sport Management Class of 2017) published her research on the challenges confronting working single parent mothers on the website One Million for Workplace Flexibility.  Olivia read over 30 articles and book chapters in the process of writing this editorial, concluding that single parents face challenges in meeting care needs of their children, laboring in jobs that lack flexibility, and discrimination on the basis of gender and parental status.  This work was performed in Stephen Sweet’s sociology course “Work and Family.”  Read Olivia’s article here: http://www.workflexibility.org/millennial-voice-failures-heroes-constant-struggle-single-parent/.
