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.

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.

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.'   

Form from Form (Review)

Artists are a lot like scientists: They observe and collect, question and describe, experiment and record. They interpret what they've gathered, creating solutions to problems or theories that pose more questions — in physical, visual form. This concept was the impetus for the fabulous and thought-provoking exhibition 'Form from Form: Art from Discovery' at the University of Cincinnati.  

Does Free News Content on the Web Still Make Sense?

Let's make this column local local or, as the new conventional wisdom sometimes puts it, hyperlocal: How much would you pay to read The Enquirer online if it quit being free? Or, if the main news section remains free online, which features would you pay for: Op-ed columnists? Tweets? Blogs? Moms? Are you willing to give The Enquirer your credit card and let them nick you for every article you pull from behind the pay-to-read wall? Lots of other dailies are gingerly sticking their toes in the roiled water of paid online content.  

Considering Community College

Two-year schools offer economical options for starting your college career

When Jennifer Reinhart graduated high school in 2006, she thought she had her future all figured out. She would volunteer for one year in the AmeriCorps and then begin her four-year college education at the University of Cincinnati. She had everything in the bag: her high school diploma, a spot at her first-choice school, a secure position in the volunteer program. But when she sat down and put her finances together one year later, things changed.  

Majoring in the Future

Five areas of study with growth in mind

1 Comment · Wednesday, August 5, 2009
Don't pick it because it's the easy way out. Don't pick it because it sounds fun or because your dad picked it. There's probably no "right" reason to choose a particular college major. Although it's possible to breeze your way through the first year or so of college without declaring a field of study, the decision looms above every student's head: What are those gold-leafed, fancy cursive words on your diploma going to spell out?  

To Dorm or Not to Dorm

That's just one of many important decisions facing incoming freshmen

0 Comments · Wednesday, August 5, 2009
College is a time of decisions: Where are you going to go to school? What are you going to major in? What organizations are you going to join? While considering these long-term scenarios, another eminent decision to make is whether or not to live on or off campus.
