With New York University's
proximity to the Occupy Wall
Street movement, the univer-
sity plans to offer an under-
graduate and graduate course
this spring on the movement
through its Department of
Social and Cultural Analysis,
according to a Dec. 8 article in
the Washington Square News.
Susquehanna University
professor Angelique Nixon, a
member of the People of Color
Caucus of Occupy Wall Street,
will be a guest speaker in the
class, according to the article.
"(Students) should study
the movement to get a bet-
ter understanding and know
about perhaps the largest

social movement of the time,"
Nixon said in the article. "It
should matter to everyone. It's
currently happening within
student movements."

inally from Michigan, on agriculture. She said it will

n families from the north- doing something unexpected
rt of the state who were in the search to find and create
ing out into agricultural meaning in their lives.

The series will feature men
and women who are looking
to control their own fortunes,
either because of the shaky
state of the current economy or
because their previous ventures
haven't panned out in the way
they expected. Her subjects are
entrepreneurial citizens who
are moving forward in the hopes
that they come "back to their
senses" and figure out how to
do what they love and love what
they do.
"If I can find people who are
doing it here (in Michigan), then
there are people who are doing it
everywhere," Maio said.
The pilot episode of the doc-
umentary-style series will focus
solely on Michigan residents,
but in later episodes she wants to
include people from around the
country.
"It's kind of tricky to find the
kind of stories I want to find
because they are about people
who are really in the middle of
what they're doing and aren't nec-
essarily highly visible yet," Maio
saidonexpandingtheseriesto the
rest of the U.S. "So, it's going to be

a bit of a challenge."
She added: "But I'm excited by
that challenge and I really want
to find those people, and I believe
that they are everywhere in this
country."
The series has yet to be filmed,
as Maio is currently raising funds
on Mobcaster.com. Created by
Aubrey Levy, another 'U' alum,
the website is a new crowd-fund-
ing platform that allows viewers
to help fund independent TV and
then streams it.
If the pilot is funded by Janu-
ary, Maio plans to film the first
episode and then go on to create
the rest of the first season, each
installment focusing on a dif-
ferent region around the United
States. Maio envisions the series
becoming a catalyst for viewers
to question their own motiva-
tions and to ask what they can
accomplish that might be more
satisfying in the long run.
"I believe that when you find
work that you love, it allows-you
to work harder and it allows you
to be more of an asset to your
community," she said. "Ultimate-
ly, I want people to be inspired."
