Cathy Lee Crane, associate professor in the Department of Media Arts, Sciences and Studies, was named a 2013 Guggenheim Fellow in Film/Video.
John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has awarded fellowships to a diverse group of 175 scholars, artists, and scientists. Appointed on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise, the successful candidates were chosen from a group of almost 3,000 applicants.
The Guggenheim Fellowship will support Crane's upcoming project -- a production of a speculative history on how the United States entered World War I as told through the story of one girl's adoption by a butcher in 1917.
Students of Ithaca College will be invited to participate in producing scenes of this film in the Park School soundstage as part of a Cinema Production Practicum course offered in the SP14 semester. If you are interested in enrolling in that class, please contact Professor Crane directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to attend an informational session in FA13.

Communication is often taken for granted, but it is what 13-year-old Alexis Runyan and four-year-old Oliver Chatterjee struggle with every day. Both children are nonverbal and cannot sign with their hands due to disorders that create a lack of muscle control.
The documentary Expressions of Hope gives a voice to these two children struggling to find their own. The film follows the children as they learn how to use various forms of assistive technology and modes of communication, and features the amazing work of Tina Caswell, clinical instructor, and her students at Ithaca College's Sir Alexander Ewing Speech and Hearing Clinic.
