Tweed-jacketed, book-loving humanities professors seem as if we are at a disadvantage when faced with today’s Millennial students. New approaches to the digital humanities offer to engage students, academics, and public audiences in new ways–but those approaches often seem to require big grants and teams of programmers to implement. In “5 Course Hacks Any Humanist Can Try: Digital Humanities as a Teaching Playground,” Jason B. Jones, co-editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education’s ProfHacker blog, looks at practical strategies for engaging students with the humanities. No specialized technical knowledge or specific platform required!

To the Point :: Free Trade

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

<iframe src=”http://www.njvid.net/embedplayer.php?pid=njcore:23237&height=240&width=450&autostart=true&align=center&splash=true”frameBorder=”0″style=”height:240px;width:450px;padding:1px;margin:2px 0;overflow:visible;”></iframe>

For the past 30 years, the United States has operated under the assumption that any trade deal is a good one. And in that time, millions of manufacturing jobs have left U.S. shores. In mid 2011, three free trade agreements were passed in the United States Congress — one with Panama, one with Colombia, and one with South Korea. There was a lot of hype about these agreements being good for the struggling United States economy. President Obama even hosted a state dinner for South Korea’s president. This episode of To the Point asks the questions, what do these free trade agreements really mean for American manufacturing? How will they affect American workers and their families? Guest panelists include John Simonelli, president of the Knickerbocker Machine Shop in Totowa, NJ, a company that started in Paterson in the 1940s; Patricia Campos-Medina, a legislative representative for Workers United, a labor organization that represents thousands of people in the apparel and textile manufacturing industries; and Dr. Martin Gritsch, an economics professor at William Paterson University’s Department of Economics, Finance and Global Business.

Labor unions have played a critical role in American society, but many people are unaware of the history of the U.S. union movement. The AFT, the union representing faculty and professional staff at William Paterson University, sponsored this educational lecture designed to inform the audience about this important history. This presentation is given by Gene Carroll, who has served as a labor and social justice organizer for unions including the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union and the United Mine Workers of America.
