Come and get some ideas for ways you might incorporate comics or graphic novels into your teaching. Panelists are Harry Brod, SAC; Kate Hein, CIEP; Stephen Gaies, Languages and Literatures; Catherine Miller, Mathematics; Wendy Miller, Art; and Paul Siddens, Communication Studies.

Co-sponsored with Rod Library.

The Strayer-Wood Theatre presents Mauritius

Crime…Passion…Stamp Collecting? The stakes are high when two half-sisters, mourning the recent passing of their mother, inherit a book of rare stamps that may include the "crown jewel" of the stamp-collecting world. The battle for possession takes a dangerous turn when three rival collectors enter the sisters' world, and they are plunged into a seedy, cloak-and-dagger underworld.  Mauritius by Pulitzer Prize nominee and creator of the hit TV series Smash, Theresa Rebeck, is a suspenseful comedy-drama where everyone involved seems willing to bully, connive, cheat, and, if all else fails, conduct a legitimate business transaction, to gain control of the rarest of prizes. Adult language.  Directed by Steve Taft.

Film Presentation: "Hannah Arendt"

Hannah Arendt was a passionate political thinker who caused outrage and vigorous disagreement by many leading American and Israeli thinkers who read her book, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (1963).  Adolf Eichmann was a leading figure in orchestrating the Holocaust, and in 1961 Israel captured him in Argentina and put him on trial for crimes against the Jewish people. Arendt attended the trial and wrote reports for The New Yorker which formed the basis of her book. Having been born and educated in Germany, Arendt was persecuted as a Jew by the Nazi regime, landing in jail and a concentration camp. Through a series of fortunate events, she was able to escape and eventually made her way to the United States. In the last years of her life, she taught at The New School for Social Research, where Bill Clohesy, professor of philosophy, became one of her doctoral students. Clohesy will provide commentary and lead a discussion following the film showing..
