Join us for Faculty Lunch #4 featuring Professor Amanda Minervini!
December 11, 2018
Gaylord Hall in the Worner Center

“Hollywood and Mussolini. Representations of the Duce in the US Media in the 20s and 30s.”

Did you know about Mussolini’s love affair with Hollywood?

Have you been wondering about the connection between stardom and political charisma?

With contemporary US and Italian politics in mind, cultural historian Amanda Minervini (French and Italian Department) has been researching representations of the Italian dictator in the international media, and in particular in the Hollywood documentary Mussolini Speaks (1933). She found evidence that his great success was based more in mediatic charisma than on any understanding of his political agenda. This research also sheds light on how the Italian Five Stars movement and President Trump have been using social media to nurture the fascination for their political figures.

Doors open – 11:45am
Talk begins – 12:15pm
Event concludes – 1:15pm

As we continue to work together to advance workplace excellence at CC, a team of your staff colleagues would like your assistance in developing meaningful opportunities to show appreciation for the hard work and contributions of all fellow CC employees.

President Tiefenthaler has charged a Block Project team to evaluate some of the major employee events CC offers and identify opportunities for improvement.
You can help by providing feedback on events like CC Night at the Zoo, and the Year-End Celebration. The survey* only takes few minutes, so please weigh in.

Your input will help inform strategies for improving the college’s employee appreciation efforts. Plus, anyone who participates will be entered into a random drawing for one of five $50 VISA gift cards. The survey will remain open through 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20.

*The Office of Institutional Planning and Effectiveness sent you an email with your link to the survey on 11/7/18 & 11/13/18 around 1:30 pm. Please check your junk email if you do not see it in your inbox.
