April 11, 2014 8:00 PM
Who says denial, depression, and stillbirths aren't funny? In the hands of a master satirist like Christopher Durang, the large and small horrors of a dysfunctional family are just raw materials for comedy both absurd and deeply human. RIT's Department of Performing Arts and Visual Culture, in collaboration with the National Technical Institute of the Deaf, presents Durang's challenging, darkly comedic play from 4/10 - 4/13/14. The unique staging of this production promises to deliver a rich, accessible theater experience for hearing and deaf audiences alike.(Friday, April 11th, 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM -Panara Theatre) View Details »

5/7/2014 - Stan McKenzie Salon Series:Are Disciplines too Specialized: an Experimental Collaboration between Journalism and Business
May 7, 2014 4:00 PM
Journalists are faced with an ever-growing list of desired skills. Beyond fact-checking, interviewing and writing, journalists are expected to demonstrate competence in still and video photography, digital design, statistical analysis, computer coding, web development, marketing and fundraising. Ambitious aspiring journalists are often required to seek these skills in departments outside their own. In this talk, Dr. Andrea Hickerson (Communication) and Dr. Vic Perotti (Business) discuss their experience building a Digital Journalism Incubator at RIT, funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, which brings together students from seven different majors to create journalism start-ups. Specifically they will address the pros and cons of working in cross-functional teams versus developing cross-functional students.(Wednesday, May 7th, 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM - Stan McKenzie Commons (Building 6) ) View Details »

In this talk he describes the transformation of our national pastime, of the men who play, and the game's internationalization.
