The Reaching for Higher Ground Film & Discussion Series explores topics related to the 2014-15 RHG theme Media and Social Media: A Networked Society.  

This evening Rise of the Drones will be screened and serve as the basis for personal reflection and dialogue:  “Drones. These unmanned flying robots–some as large as jumbo jets, others as small as birds–do things straight out of science fiction. Much of what it takes to get these robotic airplanes to fly, sense, and kill has remained secret. But now, with rare access to drone engineers and those who fly them for the U.S. military, NOVA reveals the amazing technologies that make drones so powerful as we see how a remotely-piloted drone strike looks and feels from inside the command center. From cameras that can capture every detail of an entire city at a glance to swarming robots that can make decisions on their own to giant air frames that can stay aloft for days on end, drones are changing our relationship to war, surveillance, and each other. And it's just the beginning.’”

The RHG Film & Discussion Series is co-sponsored by the UNI Center for Multicultural Education and UNI Rod Library.  All series events are free and open to the public.

In her recent book Language, Immigration and Labor: Negotiating Work in the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands, Elise DuBord, Dept. of Languages and Literatures, explores dominant ideologies about citizenship, nation and language that frame the everyday lives of Spanish-speaking immigrants. Focusing her ethnographic research on Arizona, a state that intensely regulates transnational migrants and Spanish speakers through its immigration and language policies, DuBord examines the realities of learning English and intercultural communication among undocumented day laborers. She will discuss the socioeconomic value recent immigrants associate with learning English, the obstacles adult learners confront when learning English and the impact of speaking (or not speaking) English when seeking work in the informal economy.

The research reveals the ways that dominant discourses reverberate down to localized social and language practices and how immigrants respond by legitimating their participation in society and constructing identities as language learners and productive workers.
