 Have you ever wondered about the religiosity of Ned Flanders, the feminist sensibilities of Lisa Simpson, and the national identity of Apu Nahaspeemapetilon?  

Are these animated characters, among others, really sites of struggle among political, economic, and social forces?

Register today for Communication, Culture and Rhetoric offered online during Summer Session I (May 29-June 29) and learn how analyzing these questions and more can lead to a better understanding of popular culture and how it can affect one’s sense of self.

Nanda moderated the session: “How to Thrive and Finish Your Program – A “When Faculty Say X” at this year's PROMISE SSI (PROMISE Summer Success Institute). In this session, professors from across the country, members of the Alfred B. Sloan Mentoring Network Advisory Board, answered all of the questions that students never asked their faculty, and are too nervous to ask their advisor. Between them, they have experience as deans, department chairs, center directors, and PIs of grants from NSF, NIH, and the U.S. Department of Education.

“My hope is to complete medical school as a member of the United States Air Force. I have not decided yet whether I want to pursue an MD or an MD-PhD. Through volunteering at both Cayuga Medical Center and at Upstate Medical Center, I have gained more of an interest in Emergency Medicine. I am most interested in Orthopedics and Cardiothoracics.”

Colette Piasecki-Masters, Biology, Honors Program (2018)

“My passion for medicine was ignited when I began my biology curriculum and joined Professor Susan Witherup’s research lab.

Jean Hardwick, Professor of Biology, was a awarded a 3 year research grant (~$365,000) from the National Institute of Health to support her research on the role of neuropeptides in the remodeling of the cardiac nervous system with heart disease.  Hardwick and her students are examining the changes induced by chronic heart disease in an animal model of myocardial infarction (or a heart attack) to determine how specific signaling molecules are changing and whether these changes are contributing to the pathology of the disease, or acting to improve cardiac function.  The NIH grant, which will begin later this summer, will allow the lab to purchase new equipment for sophisticated electrical recordings from neurons, as well as funding student research opportunities during the summers.

High on the hill in Collegetown last Thursday, June 12, in front of a standing-room-only crowd, members of the Ithaca College School of Music Jazz faculty—including Michael Titlebaum (saxophone), Greg Evans (drum set), and Nicholas Walker (double bass)—played side-by-side with the Ithaca High School Jazz Ensemble, directed by Michael Treat, an IC School of Music alum.

A unique opportunity for both groups, the concert featured compositions by Ithaca College Jazz Studies Director Michael Titlebaum, Ithaca College Professor Emeritus Steve Brown, and Ithaca High School students Soren Jung and Kieran Loehr, as well as works by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Machito, Rogers & Heart, Bob Shaut, and Pat Metheny.
