Difference isn’t the problem. Discourse is! CMST assistant professor Christopher House will offer CLTC 10000:01 Introduction to Culture and Communication as an online course during May Session 2019 (May 13-24, 2019).

In this course, students explore and interrogate the ways that communication (e.g., language, media, and discourse) establishes and enacts identity power dynamics. In thinking about communication as global citizens, our online discussions of, for example, movies like Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004) and Snowpiercer (Joon-ho bong, 2013) help us to understand how social identities are constructed, institutionalized, changed, contested and/or appropriated by various social groups.

This course fulfills Liberal Arts general education and ICC Diversity requirements.

To the Campus Community,

I am heartbroken to share with our entire campus community the terribly sad news that one of our students, Jase Barrack, class of 2020, sustained a serious injury off campus earlier this week. His family is currently at his side at Cayuga Medical Center, and they have made the very difficult decision to remove life support. They have let us know that they are seeking to donate his organs so that others may be offered the gift of life.
