CSUCI History major wins internship with the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.
... Feb. 19, 2018 — CSU Channel Islands (CSUCI) History major Samantha Mendoza was in 12th grade when she decided she wanted to be a librarian. “I had talked to my dad about it and he suggested I work at the Smithsonian, and that could be my end goal,” Mendoza said. “And I thought I’d be about 80 years old when that happened.” But it’s happening now. Mendoza, 26, is working at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. this semester as part of the Smithsonian Minority Awards Program, an internship designed to increase participation am...

...

Feb. 9, 2018 — CSU Channel Islands (CSUCI) Associate Professor of Art Alison Perchuk, Ph.D. first became enchanted with medieval history when she was 10 years old and read John Steinbeck’s “The Acts of King Arthur and his Noble Knights.” “I just became very interested in the romance of the medieval era, the knights and ladies,” Perchuk said. “It was very much the way a 10-year-old would structure this ideal of a quest—a knightly quest.” But Perchuk’s love of the Middle Ages wasn’t just a childhood romance. She wove it into her research, which re...

... Feb. 5, 2018 — Author, activist and Brown University honors graduate Jonathan Mooney didn’t learn to read until he was 12. Labeled “profoundly learning disabled,” and “dyslexic,” Mooney was terrified of reading, especially reading aloud in class. “I had a plan for suicide when I was 12 years old,” Mooney said during a TEDx talk. “Many things brought me to that place in my life. I struggled in school. I was the kid who spent most of the day chilling in the hall with the janitor.” Mooney went on to graduate with an honors d...

Distinguished Communication scholars to hold a panel on social change at CSUCI

Jacob Jenkins, Ph.D. “Yet sadly, we seem to have become even more polarized in recent years. There seems to be less middle ground, less compassion, and less compromise than ever before.” With this sentiment in mind, Jenkins and a col...

... Jan. 22, 2018 — It’s no news to anyone that the rise of partisanship in the U.S. Congress is impeding lawmakers’ ability to function — sometimes to the point of paralysis. “The nearly constant threat of government shutdowns is a direct result of partisanship,” said CSU Channel Islands (CSUCI) Professor of Political Science Sean Kelly, Ph.D. “The failure to appropriate in a timely manner prevents Congress from thoroughly exercising its constitutional power to prioritize and oversee government spending.” Kelly will be researching par...
