Love Between the Covers, an NEH-funded look at the $1.2 billion romance publishing industry, will air at Cinemapolis Tuesday October 20 at 7:15 pm. Admission is free.
U.S. Representative Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) introduced a bill in 2014 proposing to prohibit the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) from funding any project relating to the research of love or romance (H.R.5155). Yet, popular romance is the highest selling book genre in the world today, representing the largest share of sales revenue in the industry. Moreover, 84% of romance readership are women, and women dominate the author rolls.
Popular romance is a women’s industry, perhaps the largest in the US. Yet a US legislator made a point of crafting a law against funding its study. Why?

CSCRE Discussion Series Speaker, Dr. Jeffreen Hayes "Beyond Community: Fractured Systems" Tuesday Oct 6th, 7-9PM Clark Lounge
Contributed by Belisa Gonzalez on 10/02/2015
In this talk, Dr. Hayes will discuss the challenges of using art and culture to develop, re-develop, build or re-build less privileged communities of color. The framing question is how do we use the arts to work collaboratively with communities of color to inspire change, empowerment, and reinvigoration so that the community is left in a better, stronger position than when the arts system entered it? From the lens of art museums, arts non-profits, artists, and local governments, I hope to expose where the structures breakdown, where they are sustainable, and to support a stronger community.
Date: Tuesday, October 6, 2015
Location: Clark Lounge
Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Belisa Gonzalez at firstname.lastname@example.org or (607) 274-3921. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.

When the love of Edie Windsor’s life died, she was forced to pay additional estate taxes because the federal government did not recognize her marriage to Thea Spyer. Edie would become the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit challenging the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), resulting in the Supreme Court ruling in 2013 that the federal ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. On Tuesday, Oct. 6, the Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen series will show “Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement,” a documentary capturing the story of these two women and how their simple love for one another changed history. The screening will take place at 7 p.m. in Textor 101, and it is free and open to the public.
