Some Hunter-L Nostalgia As We Head into the Perils of 2016 …

Monday, January 4th, 2016

Hunter-L is a primary listserv for inter-community information at Hunter College, City University of New York. The listserv use to be robust. Dynamic. Inclusive. Opened to students. But like a lot of things at Hunter, it has waned over the last five years, dumbed down by the Powers That Be who embrace the insipid.

Note: This was intended for you, Colleague Tami Gold, when you were the Hunter College PSC Chapter Chair. I admit it is late.

Department of Film and Media Studies Colleagues & Staff have been using and trying to use the University’s Violence in the Workplace Committee and Hunter College Security to stifle dissent, intimidate Colleagues & Staff who don’t share their values and opinions.

Attention Colleague Bill Herman: The Center for Communication, Inc. Use to Be a Gold Mine of Support for D:F/M Students

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Regarding your fm-l post about the “great” programs of the Center for Communication, Inc. Copy of your post is below. But first, history and context.

Shouldn’t students be informed about the demise of the innovative relationship between the department and the Center for Communication, Inc. when it scheduled numerous panels and events on the Hunter campus, mostly but not exclusively, in the Lang Auditorium, for the benefit of students – and not just those D:F/M majors – so that they didn’t have to trek so much around the city to Center events? For a department with no imagination and no funding for programming for students, the Center relationship was a blessing.

The Chair knows the history. Maybe he might share.

Best,
G Morris

Have to Get This Off My Chest About the Center for Communication

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Colleagues Larry Shore, Princess Hee-Haw: Read This Blog

A long time ago I worked out an innovative collaboration with the Center for Communication so that it could schedule seminars, panel discussions and other events on the Hunter campus. Almost all of the activities were held in the rinky-dink Lang Auditorium on the fourth floor of Hunter North. One exception was held in a large lecture room of the Hunter West Building that can seat several hundred –  timed to coordinate with the class of Adversarial Colleague Bob Stanley.

SRO – capacity 500.

My job was to make sure that there was plenty of attendance. D:F/M techie Joe Orifice worked with me to take care of logistics.  And it was a marvel of a collaboration until the two chairs of D:F/M, in the throes of maniacally egotistical self-aggrandizement, screwed up the collaboration set up for the benefit of students. The Center for Communication did great things for students in the Department of Film and Media Studies as well as for students who weren’t majors.

Nevertheless, Colleagues in my department, like Larry Shore and Princes Hee-Haw (of the Hee-Haw Rangers), still post announcements about the Center’s events as if to keep up the ruse that the DEAD relationship hasn’t been killed off and is still alive. More about this later.

D:F/M Colleagues, including some who have retired. A new logo is in the works.
