Prof. Kaye to present two short films at Neville Public Museum this Wednesday (Dec. 5)

UW-Green Bay Ben & Joyce Rosenberg Professor Harvey J. Kaye (Democracy and Justice Studies) will be introducing two shorts films from the 1940s and discussing Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms speech as part of the Green Bay Film Society’s International Film Series at the Neville Public Museum, this Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. Prof. Kaye’s most recent book, “The Fight for the Four Freedoms: What Made FDR and the Greatest Generation Truly Great,” analyzes the social and historical context of the speech as well as Norman Rockwell’s visual representation of them. Kaye was then asked by Turner Classic Movies to select and present four films that represented each freedom. He’ll discuss the speech and two of those films as part of the series. The event is free and open to the public.

Prof. Fermanich quoted in The Gazette on water quality

“America’s Midwest faces worsening trouble with undrinkable well water, recreational lakes choked with toxic algae, and water treatment plants requiring budget-busting upgrades to remove pollution washing from farm fields and industries.” The Gazette (Cedar Rapids) talks with experts, including UW-Green Bay Prof. Kevin Fermanich (NAS) for a lengthy story, Treading Water: Unfocused and underfunded, Goal of Cleaner Water Falters. “In freshwater systems like Green Bay, it’s the phosphorus that’s the primary driver,” said Fermanich.

 

Communication students get first-hand media experience with Jesse McCartney

Suffice to say that Jesse McCartney went out of his way to make friends with the Phoenix during his Green Bay stay and concert at the Weidner Center last week. McCartney recorded a video message to the Green Bay volleyball team, wishing them luck at the NCAA Tournament match vs. the Badgers, and he granted exclusive interview rights to members of The Comm Voice.
