 Americanese: Some love stories end with a good-bye. 

The Ithaca Pan Asian American Film Festival opens today at 4:00pm in Textor 102 with a special screening of Americanese, adapted from the ground-breaking novel by Shawn Wong. A Q&A with special guest Shawn Wong will follow the screening. 

CSCRE Professor Phuong Nguyen says:

"Throughout history, American society has limited who Asians were allowed to love, who could love Asians, and questioned the capacity of Asians to love—both themselves and each other. Wong's novel squashes all those myths and pokes fun at them simultaneously. We are proud to have Shawn Wong join us for the opening night of the Ithaca Pan Asian American Film Festival for a special screening of the film based on his novel American Knees. We hope you can join us, too."

Popcorn and other refreshments will be provided. Asia Night follows the screening, with
more food and activities. Join us for this special event!

You can find information regarding the approval process AND applicable forms at http://www.ithaca.edu/riskmanagement/driving/.

Please note: Risk Management can only accept the most current driver information form (revised January 2016). Should your department or area have older copies of the driver information form, please dispose of them.

Also on this site you will find the Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Procedures document, which every driver should be familiar with if involved in an accident.

There is also useful information regarding domestic and international vehicle rentals from an outside agency.

We request that an employee submit a driver information form only when they have a need to drive; since there is a cost involved in obtaining an individual's Motor Vehicle Record.

If you have questions regarding any of the above or about your status you can call Risk Management at 607-274-3285 or email at: riskmanagement@ithaca.edu.

Thank you!
