  • "Wretches and Jabberers" Movie Screening

    10/09/12
    5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    Walker Building
    230

    In Wretches & Jabberers, two men with autism embark on a global quest to change attitudes about disability and intelligence. Determined to put a new face on autism, Tracy Thresher, 42, and Larry Bissonnette, 52, travel to Sri Lanka, Japan and Finland. At each stop, they dissect public attitudes about autism and issue a hopeful challenge to reconsider competency and the future.

    From beginning to end, Thresher and Bissonnette inspire parents and young men and women with autism with a poignant narrative of personal struggle that always rings with intelligence, humor, hope and courage.

    Come for a fascinating movie, refreshments, and discussion!

    This event is not open to the public.

  • Washington, D.C. Program Information Session

    10/09/12
    6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    504

    Survey after survey canvassing perceptions of HR Directors of the Fortune 500 companies continually note the following requirement in hiring: "Internship experience."   With that in mind, please read the following:

    Emerson College will be hosting a representative of our Washington, D.C. affiliate, The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars. You may be aware that we currently have 20 juniors and seniors studying and interning in Washington D.C. We're hoping for a similar number for Fall 2013.

    For those of you who haven't read the numerous articles (in the Berkeley Beacon) over the past few years related to the Washington D.C. Program, it's important for you to know that this is a highly selective program limited to 20 students each fall term only. You must be a junior or senior with at least a 2.7 GPA to be eligible for application. In reality, NOW is the time to start thinking about this. You will receive 16 credits in D.C., should you be selected, 8 of which will be for an internship. The cost is comparable to one semester at Emerson in Boston and also includes housing in a brand new residential center near Capitol Hill.

    This semester is attractive to so many because it is very intimate insofar as an Emerson alum teaches a course for us in D.C., with guest speakers from all over the D.C. metro area, many of whom are also Emerson alums. We do our best to enhance networking and career opportunities by having both formal and informal gatherings.

    Attending the Tuesday meeting will provide you even more information on the experience.

    This is our fourth year providing the D.C. experience and the program's popularity has soared.  What I need to clarify is that it's a program available to any major on campus. While at first glance, the program seems to be solely aligned with Political Communication Majors, as most of us know, Washington is also home to some of the most visible non-profit organizations and institutions dedicated to social justice and civic engagement (a plethora of for-profits also have their bases in D.C.).  To this end, those Emerson students with an interest beyond the political environment will find value in applying to the D.C. Semester.  Needless to say, if you're a Political Communication major, this is an extraordinary locale.

    The past few years, Emerson students have been placed at the following locations:

    • ABA World Justice Project
    • ABC News
    • American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
    • Capital Area Food Bank
    • Center for Inspired Teaching

    • Progressive Democrats of America
    • Rock the Vote
    • Share our Strength
    • The Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage

    • Tribune Broadcasting
    • Tricom Associates
    • United Nations World Food Program
    • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
    • Voice of America

    The location is ideal; the opportunities are limitless.

    We hope to see you there!

  • Arab Spring and Syrian Winter: Fanonian Practices and Reports from the Field

    10/09/12
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Walker Building
    202

    Please join the Institute for Liberal Arts & Interdisciplinary Studies for a faculty lecture with Dr. Yasser Munif and Dr. Nigel Gibson.

    The toppling of the Tunisian despot in January 2011 produced euphoria in the Arab World and triggered a wave of revolts that changed the political, social, and cultural landscapes in the region. After almost two years of protests, demonstrations, defections, rebellions, strikes, street fighting, democratic elections, guerrilla warfare, and downfall of leaders, in addition to the minutiae of everyday resistance, it is essential to assess the uneven trajectories of these revolts and evaluate their outcomes. Using a Fanonian analytics, Nigel Gibson offers a critical analysis of the Arab revolts. He explores their revolutionary potential and some of their setbacks. Yasser Munif provides an anatomy of the Syrian uprising through stories he collected on the ground during his recent visit. He describes the complex social and political conditions under which Syrians are conducting their struggle for national liberation.

    This event is not open to the public.

  • Hamlet

    10/09/12
    7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Paramount Center Mainstage
    See artsemerson.org for ticket pricing information

     ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Hamlet. From Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London, a handful of players perform this timeless classic. Hamlet explores political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humor. Capturing the youthful and less jaded aspects of Hamlet's personality rarely seen in more traditional interpretations, in just two and a half hours, this production embraces the theatre of Shakespeare's day by returning to the roots of performance, with actors playing multiple characters. Humorous and boisterous, the Globe Company packs an emotional wallop with their inherent theatricality.
