Film@UC Presents "1971"

Utica College: Macfarlane Auditorium

On Thursday, Sept. 18, Film@UC will present the 2014 film “1971” as part of Utica College’s Cultural Events series. For the first time in 43 years, this timely documentary reveals the methods and identities of eight average citizens who broke into an FBI office on March 8, 1971 and leaked suitcases full of incriminating files to the press. This resulted in months of headlines about FBI spying and intimidation of anti-war and civil rights groups, an unprecedented Congressional investigation, and legislation curtailing the domestic surveillance powers of the US government. This film is free and open to the public, and will be shown in the Macfarlane Auditorium in the college’s DePerno Hall at 7 p.m. For more information, call (315) 792-3047 or visit utica.edu/culture.

Best-selling Author, Bard College Professor Daniel Mendelsohn to Lecture at Hamilton College

Hamilton College - Kennedy Auditorium in the Taylor Science Center

Best-selling author and Bard College professor Daniel Mendelsohn will present a lecture, "An Odyssey: A Father, A Son, and An Epic." Mendelsohn’s talk will intertwine an ongoing reading of the Greek classic "The Odyssey", around a personal narrative that itself combines adventures both real and metaphorical. That narrative is a father-son story: an account of how a year-long reading of the poem that the author undertook with his ailing father affected their relationship to each other and, eventually, to the enduring questions the author was faced with once his father fell ill and began to die. His talk will be a combination of a reading from this new work and a discussion of it.
