Patricia Zimmermann, professor of screen studies and codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, was an invited speaker to discuss new media, social media and conflict zones with graduate students in journalism and mass communication at the University of Oregon-Portland on November 2, 2013.

Her interactive presentation was done via Skype. She analyzed and discussed transmedia projects that engage conflict through non-confrontational design to engender dialogue, exploration, and user-generated participation. The projects analyzed included Lunch Love Community, Triangle Fire Archive, Engage Media, and works by new media artists Stephanie Rothenberg and Brooke Singer. Graduate students worked with these projects before the session, and then participated in a dialogue analyzing the ethics, politics, affordances, and implications of these new forms of documentary.
 

Do you have a passion for working with older adults? Would you like to help Ithaca College's friendly visiting program as a member of the E-Board?

 

Project Generations (PG) is a service club dedicated to bridging the generation gap between college-aged individuals and older adults. Along with Cornell University, we match students with senior citizens in the Ithaca Community in order to form friendly relationships and foster a sense of compassion between the pair. 

In 2013, PG won the Outstanding Service Organization Award, the President's Volunteer Service Award, and Student Organization Program of the Year Award for our Senior Citizen Prom. This year we are excited to make our annual event event even better - and we are looking for a dedicated and organized Secretary!

The Secretary is responsible for communicating with the club about meeting times, event dates, and other logistics. 

If you are interested in applying, please e-mail ICPROJECTGENERATIONS@GMAIL.COM!

The City of Ithaca is facing severe challenges tied to ice and flooding (http://www.ci.ithaca.ny.us)

In order to help Fall Creek-area residents, the City is providing sand and bags for making sandbags and volunteers are needed.

Materials are available from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. today and Saturday at the DPW Streets and Facilities Division, 245 Pier Road. (To get there from Rt 13, turn onto Willow Ave (across Rt 13 from Dey St). Turn right at the T junction. Then right again on Pier Rd.)

Sandbags will be easy to fill (via gravity), but harder to move: bags will typically weigh between 40 and 60 lbs.

Those who need sandbags will be helped by city facilities workers, and as many volunteers as the city can amass.
