Lynn Gitlow named fellow of AOTA

Contributed by Matt Morgan on 04/29/2014 

Dr. Lynn Gitlow, associate professor in the Department of Occupational Therapy, was recently named a fellow of the American Occupational Therapy Association. This honor is given to occupational therapists who, with their knowledge and expertise, have made significant contributions to continuing education and the professional development of other members of the AOTA.

Gitlow was one of just 36 people named a fellow in 2014. Fewer than 850 people have been given this honor nationally since 1973. Gitlow is the second Ithaca College faculty member to earn this honor. Carole Dennis was the first in 2012.

 There are still some seats in Gender and Sexuality in Spanish Women's Writings (SPAN 26600, CRN 23405)!  This course covers a wide range of literature—narrative fiction, theater and poetry—written by women in Spain, both native born and immigrant, from the period of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) to the present day. Throughout the semester, we will examine a variety of critical approaches and philosophies to develop a framework for thinking about the intersections of gender identity, considering how politics, culture, economics, race, religion, politics—affect women’s lives. This course is tailored to foreground questions related to sexuality and desire, and to identify the ways in which human sexuality intersects with other dimensions of social life. This course is taught in English and counts towards the minor in Women’s and Gender Studies. For more information, contact Maria DiFrancesco, mdifrancesco@ithaca.edu
