    St. Louis Magazine called "The Safe Side of the Fence" "...a devastating, disturbing, and deeply poignant documentary...." about the nuclear workers who refined large amounts of uranium during World War II's Manhattan Project.

    This documentary explores the fallout of creating some of the world's first nuclear waste. 

    Join us for a free film screening and Q&A with director Tony West, a videographer who has covered professional sports such as Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, the National Football League, and the Professional Golf Association.

    In 2010, West took a detour from sports to produce “The Safe Side of the Fence”. He is a two-time National Emmy Award winner for his coverage of Major League Baseball. Prior to entering the sports arena, he worked in network news for ABC NEWS, CBS NEWS, and NBC NIGHTLY NEWS.

  • Pennoni Panels: The Electability Question: What Makes an Electable Woman?

    Thursday, February 27, 2020

    6:30 PM-8:00 PM

    Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103

    • Everyone

    Whether it is Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s bold lip color, Hillary Clinton’s cankles, or Elizabeth Warren’s affectations, women running for office or currently in positions of power encounter a range of commentary regarding their appearance and qualifications. In a 2018 study, political scientists Rachel Garrett and Dominik Stecula found that women described with masculine-coded language like “ambitious” and assertive” were considered more qualified and capable than those described more femininely like “compassionate.”  Language not only imparts visual information about a candidate, but it allows the public to dissect her brand. How do we utilize language  while being  conscious of the impact our words have on female candidates’ electability?  This panel seeks to unpack the way we talk about women, the balance candidates have to strike between qualified and likable, and methods for redirecting the discourse.
