Special Focus Issue: The Impact of ‘Queer’ and ‘Gay’ on Men’s Fashion
Dr. Alex Bitterman, Guest Editor
Please feel free to circulate this call broadly to colleagues who may be interested.
Deadline: 17 April 2015
In partnership with Park Circus films, we’re giving away three exclusive posters for festive films that have become as synonymous with the Christmas season as Santa Claus or injuries at a black Friday sale.
The holiday wouldn’t be complete without a cosy revisiting of Frank Capra’s 1946 gem It’s A Wonderful Life, Brian Henson’s mischievous rehash The Muppet Christmas Carol and Robert Zemeckis’ CGI laden but no less magical The Polar Express - so you’ll be pleased to know that all three are back on the big screen at selected cinemas throughout the month of December.
All you need to do to win the set of three posters is tell us your favourite Christmas movie and why in 100 words or less.
Simply email your entry to Intellectthebigpicturemagazine@gmail.com before Friday December 19th for your chance to win.
Cathy Madden - Reading & Book Signing at UBookstore
Teaching people to understand the ways they are interfering with their natural coordination, the Alexander Technique applies the use of consciously coordinated responses to ease tension, alleviate chronic stress, and improve performance. In a new guide-book specifically for performers, Alexander Technique coach Cathy Madden presents the practice as it applies to common concerns and specific applications in the life and work of performers. Join us at the Univerity Bookstore for a reading and signing. Cathy will share from her new book and expand on how anyone can benefit from ridding themselves of unnecessary muscular and mental effort using the Alexander Technique.
Cathy Madden is principal lecturer for the University of Washingtons Professional Actor Training program, director of the Alexander Technique Training and Performance Studio in Seattle, and associate director and research director for BodyChance in Japan. She was a founding member and is a former chair of Alexander Technique International.
