Sports as Metaphor in US Popular Culture
With Joel Vessels, Assistant Professor of History, Nassau Community College
Tuesday, May 28th at 11:30 AM
Professional sports in the United States are big business driven by huge fan bases. Few examine it for it's relationship to the culture that it reflects and affirms. In the USA sports can be seen as a metaphor for our myths of mobility, work and meritocracy; as a reflection of our sentiments about sex, race, religion and violence; and even as a mirror in which to examine some of our social ills. Today we will examine the ways in which sport is more than just the outcome of the game from the perspective of social and cultural history.
The Ten Commandments of Lobbying
With Chuck Cutolo, J.D., Director of Governmental Affairs, Nassau Community College
Tuesday, June 4th at 11:30 AM
This program will discuss "why" and "how" lobbyists advocate before the legislative bodies. The material is based on the speaker's more than 20 years experience as a legislative staffer on the federal and local level, including 12 years as legislative director for U.S. Senator Carl Levin. With this information, individuals and groups can better allocate their resources and more effectively present the arguments in support of their position.
