UNI Calendar of Events

Diversity

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 - 7:30 pm

This panel aims to engage the audience in conversations about the ethics of gender-based discrimination and harassment in video gaming culture and social media; to discuss responsible Internet usage; and to confront personal biases. Through these conversations, aided and inspired by learning about the experiences of the panelists (professionals in the videogame industry including Brianna Wu, one of the original  targets of #gamergate; Maddy Myers; Samantha Kalman; and Patrick Klepek), we aim to challenge the audience to reflect on their relationships with media and social media; to become more critical consumers of media; and to examine their own roles in creating a more inclusive and respectful community--both at UNI and online.

Sponsored by: Women’s & Gender Studies Program; Departments of Communication Studies, Computer Science, Math, and Psychology; and a Reaching for Higher Ground grant.

Set against the dramatic backdrop of violence in the Middle East and the tension between Jewish and Muslim students on college campuses, "Of Many" focuses on the surprising and transformative relationship between an orthodox rabbi and imam, university chaplains in New York City. Through a series of voyages to communities struck by catastrophe, we witness young religious Jews and Muslims working together and overcoming long-standing divides. This timely and humorous documentary will jump-start a discussion of the interfaith community at UNI, led by a panel of religious leaders in the community. Attendees are encouraged to live-tweet using the hasthag #ofmanyuni. This film and disucssion event is sponsored by the Office of the President, the Diversity Council and the Explorers of Religion.

Monday, April 27, 2015 - 6:30 pm

As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Women's and Gender Studies and Wellness and Recreation Services will host a screening and discussion of "The Mask You Live In." This documentary, from the makers of "Miss Representation," follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. "The Mask You Live In" ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.


Following the 90-minute film, Mark Rowe-Barth, Alan Heisterkamp and Michael Fleming will lead a discussion.

This event is free and open to the public. Please note this film contains content that may not be suitable to children under 16.
