International Film Series Continues at Westminster College

The Jake Erhardt International Film Series presents
"The Wedding Banquet" Tuesday, Oct.19, at 7 p.m. in the Sebastian Mueller Theater located in the McKelvey Campus Center.

  "This funny, film is about Wei-Tung, a gay Taiwanese-American happily living in New York with his partner, Simon," said Dr. Deborah Mitchell, associate professor of English and public relations at Westminster College.  "But when Wei-Tung's parents, who know nothing of their son's sexual orientation, keep pressuring him to marry, Simon suggests a marriage of convenience to a young Chinese girl looking for a green card.  The results are mayhem."

"It's a great example of Ang Lee's stunning visual style, who also directed 'Crouching Tiger,' 'Hidden Dragon' and 'Sense and Sensibility,'" Mitchell added.

The International Film Series was recently named in honor of its founder, Dr. Jacob Erhardt, professor emeritus of German at Westminster College.  Erhardt, who taught at Westminster from 1968 until his retirement in 2004, served as chair of his department from 1970-1986, was named the Language Educator of the Year by the Pennsylvania State Modern Languages Association, translated into English Robert Reitzel's Adventures of a Greenhorn, and was recognized by the National Endowment for the Humanities as an outstanding member.

The event, which is part of an eight-film series, is free and open to the public

Westminster Offers Secondary Educators Computer Science Workshop

Westminster College is offering a Computer Science Workshop June 22-24 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Hoyt Science Resources Center Room G-35.

"The workshop included two tracks: Java programming and VisualBasic.Net programming," said Dr. David Shaffer, assistant professor of computer science.  "The level of the material will be tailored to the attendees' needs, but we will also provide introductory to advanced training in both of these technologies.  Advanced topics could include graphical user interface in Java, network programming, and data structures and algorithms.

"Of course, all topics will be appropriate for improving mastery of the language and useful as potential projects for your students.  This workshop will be hands-on and focused on activities that enhance mastery of these languages."

Workshop leaders include Shaffer and Dr. Terri Lenox, assistant professor of computer science at Westminster College. 

All educational materials, including breakfast and lunch, are included in this workshop at no cost, but registration is limited to 18 individuals and will be accepted at a first-come, first-served basis through June 14.

This free workshop is sponsored by the Westminster College Department of Mathematics and Computer Science through the Drinko Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.  Support for this program is provided by Westminster College and the Grable Foundation of Pittsburgh.

Contact Shaffer at (724) 946-7292 or e-mail Shaffer@cs.westminster.edu for more information.
