WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Teaching Media Ethics to Two Generations of News Consumers

0 Comments · Monday, September 13, 2010
Next Wednesday I'll pursue a favorite past time: introducing a class of University of Cincinnati undergraduates to the ambiguities of journalism ethics. We'll talk about virtues and vices, standards and seducers. Our first session probably will include the threatened burning of the Qur'an by a Florida pastor. And in October I'll teach a similar class for UC's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. It's freewheeling — no text, exams or grades.  

Who Taught 'Em?

When Aubrey Berg goes to Broadway, he has a hard time forgetting his day job. That's actually a point of pride for the professor and department head at the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music. Berg, who has taught at UC for 23 of the program's 40 years, has been honored by the League of Cincinnati Theatres with its 2010 Continuing Achievement Award and will be inducted into the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards Hall of Fame Sunday.

The Red and Black Adds Some Green

UC earning notice for its sustainability efforts

Say "University of Cincinnati" in a crowd of locals, and someone is bound to reply with colors: red and black. But there's a growing push on campus to have people start associating the school with another color: green. UC is one of five Ohio universities (and the only public institution) to earn mention in the recent 'Princeton Review's Guide to 286 Green Colleges.'  

'All Hell Broke Loose'

On the 40th anniversary, UC alumni remember Kent State shootings

1 Comment · Tuesday, April 27, 2010
Days after four Kent State students were shot and killed by the Ohio National Guard on May 4, 1970, UC closed the campus indefinitely. Students from other closed schools had been spotted on campus mingling with UC protesters, and disruption was feared from "outside agitators." Students simply went home, and few graduating seniors attended commencement. Forty years later, the UC Alumni Association is holding a special anniversary commencement for the Class of '70.  

Two Weddings and a Funeral

Novelist Richard Russo discusses his craft

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 7, 2010
Richard Russo's latest, 'That Old Cape Magic,' returns to the novelist's longtime topic of choice: family, and all the endlessly fascinating narrative and dramatic tension that topic allows. Its very Russo-ian protagonist Jack Griffin is going through an existential crisis of sorts, set off by the death of his mother and the marriage of his only daughter.   

Karen Finley Does Jackie O

Performance artist brings her consideration of an icon of national trauma to UC

0 Comments · Monday, March 8, 2010
Karen Finley, the New York-based performance artist who's appearing at the University of Cincinnati this week and presents her latest piece, "The Jackie Look," March 10, isn't satisfied with operating in a single field. Her unique, wordy performances blithely overstep the lines between fine art, theater, literature and social anthropology. She's willing to try an idea or context on for size to see what a new activity might symbolize.  

When Everything Changed

It was a time when politics were upside down, when elites were rarely mentioned and a backlash had already occurred when Richard Nixon was elected president in 1968. It was a time when college campuses were battlegrounds, when the angriest voices were found there and on urban streets and had faces and names.  

The Reds and City Council

CINCINNATI REDS: With the Bengals blowing their playoff game against the Jets, local sports fans thought they'd spend the long, cold months of winter grumbling over their Hudepohls. Instead, Reds management gave them something to be happy about with the signing of Cuban pitcher Aroldis Chapman.  

CCM Is Broadway's Farm Team

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 11, 2009
The University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music is one of the best musical theater training programs at any American university. The program was established slightly more than four decades ago, and its graduates have been lighting up Broadway ever since. Most recently, grad Karen Olivo picked up a 2009 Tony as Anita in the Broadway revival of 'West Side Story.'
