Journalism Professor Roslyn Bernstein's Book Debuts in Vilnius, Lithuania

Bernstein at Vilnius book opening
Prof. Roslyn Bernstein's new co-authored book, Illegal Living: 80 Wooster Street and the Evolution of SoHo, made its debut in Vilnius, Lithuania this month. The nonfiction work focuses on the biography of the first artists' live-work building in SoHo, created by Fluxus visionary George Maciunas. An exhibition entitled “George Maciunas: Father of SoHo” is on display in Vilnius, a city that seeks to become the 21st Century’s capital of Fluxus. At the opening reception, the American Ambassador to Lithuania spoke, as did the first president of free Lithuania, and the mayor of Vilnius. Prof. Bernstein offers thoughts on Maciunas here.

Reminder to Complete the CUNYFirst Survey

Recently, some of you received the third survey of ideas and opinions on the implementation of CUNYFirst. Please look at the CUNYFirst Survey FAQ, which should answer any questions you may have about the survey and CUNYFirst. As you probably know, the CUNYFirst project is a CUNY-wide implementation of a new computer software system to establish 21st century tools and practices to support services for students, faculty, and staff. The results will be very helpful to the CUNYFirst team and will help everyone make best use of the system in the future, so please complete the survey by Wednesday, June 30th at 5 pm. If you need the survey to be resent or have technical questions, please contact Mr. Rom Litwin, Operations Manager, Baruch College Survey Research, at 646-660-6776, or romuald.litwin@baruch.cuny.edu.
