In this talk, Ferentinos explores recent efforts between the historic preservation and green building movements to create a sustainable future together by combining energy conservation with the reuse of existing building stock.

Interchange – Marriage Equality: From the Margins to the Mainstream


Hosts Doug Storm and Trish Kerle’ explore some of the nuances, complexities and limitations of marriage for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community – the LGBT community – from a decidedly left of center – some might even say, radical – political and cultural perspective. This is not an anti-marriage or anti-marriage equality show. It is, however, our attempt to underscore that marriage may not be an obvious or clear-cut decision for all same-gender couples.

Since the overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act (otherwise known as DOMA or Windsor vs. the United States) in June 2013, there have been dozens of victories for the freedom to marry, with many of those rulings on hold pending appeal. As of today, 19 U.S. states and the District of Columbia have legalized marriage for lesbian and gay couples.

In Indiana, same-sex couples were getting legally married for three days in June 2014 (when the ban on marriage was overturned), until the state was granted a stay of that decision. Then, on August 26, 2014, cases from IN and WI were presented to a panel of three federal judges with the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. It’s uncertain when a ruling by that panel will be announced, but many legal experts expect the U.S. Supreme Court will settle the issue of marriage equality once and for all in the coming session.


Byron Craig holds two degrees from Indiana University – a master’s degree in African American and African Diaspora Studies and a PhD in Communications and Culture. His research explores the intersections of race, gender and class and he is a faculty lecturer with the Kelley School of Business at IU.

Colin Johnson is Associate Professor of Gender Studies and Adjunct Associate Professor of American Studies, History and Human Biology at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he teaches courses on LGBT studies and the history of gender and sexuality in the United States.

Books Unbound – Frankenstein, Part 3


Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was 18 when she and her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley, visited some literary friends and got involved in a challenge, to see who could write the most frightening story. Out of a group that included the poet Lord Byron, only Mary’s story of a scientist who goes too far has lasted as a landmark of fantastic literature. Mary Shelley was twenty when the book was published.

Frankenstein was published in 1818, as the Industrial Revolution readied for takeoff in Europe. Science held out the promise of mankind’s triumph over nature, even over death itself – and electricity was the key. In the novel, a doctor uses electricity to re-animate parts of human corpses into a whole, living being – who, although hideous, develops intelligence and self-awareness – and finally turns against its creator. Frankenstein was banned in South Africa in 1955, for containing material deemed “indecent” and “obscene.”
