New this Fall (2014): THEA 47801 Cultural Policy & Politics

How is it possible that words on a page or images on a canvas can be the center of international political debate? The work of Robert Mapplethorpe, Ai Weiwei or *censored* Riot is as much known for what it represents politically as for its formal or aesthetic qualities. What does national cultural policy say about that nation’s values, priorities and sense of shared identity? This course explores the intersection of cultural policy and politics, particularly in the United States during the last hundred years.

Carrot Mob is back!!

Contributed by Alexandra Robinson on 04/21/2014 

 Net Impact invites you to the 3rd Ithaca Carrot Mob!

Carrot Mob is a campaign to encourage and reward a business' commitment to making socially responsible and sustainable changes. IC Net Impact has made an agreement with the Ithaca location of Firehouse Subs (right next to Yogurtland) that 20% of the profits earned during the Carrot Mob event will go towards helping them make a sustainable change. Making sustainable decisions can be expensive for businesses, so the more people that go to Firehouse Subs during the event, the more money will be made to go towards helping Firehouse Subs be more sustainable!

We'll have live music during the event as well as a DJ, so visit our event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/853624124652513/ to stay updated on specific performers!

Net Impact is a network of students and professionals dedicated towards creating a more sustainable business world. Our mission is to promote sustainability and awareness for students across campus through education and community involvement. We will use the power of business to implement social change.

Come join IC Habitat for Humanity Shed Build this Saturday, April 26th 10-3pm on the Fitness Quad.
