The Butler Center is now accepting applications for Peer Leaders in the S.A.I.L. Mentoring Program for the 2018-19 academic year! We invite all rising juniors and seniors to apply by reading and completing the following form by 2nd Monday, April 30th at 1 p.m. in order to be considered. ** APPLY TODAY: goo.gl/forms/UMGtbO2O7DMN7JHJ3 ** The S.A.I.L. (Sophomore Advanced Initiative for Leadership) Mentoring Program serves as an advanced leadership initiative sponsored by The Butler Center focused on mentorship, holistic advising, and personal connections. The S.A.I.L. Mentoring Program is the only comprehensive leadership and mentoring initiative at Colorado College for sophomore students. Juniors and senior students have the opportunity to serve as Peer Leaders in the S.A.I.L. Mentoring Program, where they are matched with a sophomore student for the year. More information can be found on the application form. Any questions should be directed to ldelman@coloradocollege.edu. “S.A.I.L. offers an opportunity that you won’t find elsewhere. My sophomores made a lot of little mistakes and it was my role as a Peer Leader to validate them, but also give them perspective and let them know I was there for them. That connectedness facilitated more critical analysis of who we are and how we were doing.” – S.A.I.L. Peer Leader. “I didn’t realized it’s worth until I was in [S.A.I.L.]. Having a Peer Leader who cared about me and was willing to share what they learned, while allowing me to have my own experience was awesome. I really liked gathering with the same group of people all year long.it made me feel more grounded on the Block Plan and connected.” – S.A.I.L. Sophomore.

Visiting Series in Film and Culture: Dr. Aronczyk on, “Spinning Climate Change? Public Relations, Environmentalism, and the Anxieties of Influence”

Cornerstone Screening Room
Monday, April 30, 2018
3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

This event is open to the general public.

In this talk I examine the strategic dimensions of communicating climate change, exploring a range of historical and contemporary efforts by professional influencers to promote, shape and influence what we talk about when we talk about environmental problems. In producing climate change as a public and policy issue, marketers and advocates also seek to reconcile orders of worth among their “stakeholders,” producing value that is recognized across competing perspectives. I also look at how promotional campaigns bring environmental media of land, air and water in line with communications media and technologies. Drawing on archival research, ethnographic fieldwork, and interviews with marketing managers, public relations consultants, media strategists, and advocacy groups, I discuss the cultural repertoires and communicative devices by which professional influencers attempt to make climate change legible to different imagined audiences.

Melissa Aronczyk is Associate Professor in the School of Communication & Information at Rutgers University. She is the author of Branding the Nation: The Global Business of National Identity (2013) and the co-editor of Blowing Up the Brand: Critical Perspectives on Promotional Culture (2010). Recent work has been published in New Media & Society, Public Relations Inquiry, and Critical Studies in Media Communication. Current research, funded by the National Science Foundation, examines the roles of information and influence campaigns on public policy.
