What: Omnibus is a monthly conversation about the Library, Dowling, and Long Island.
The Listening Tour of South Shore History is an interactive map to guide you through the local history topics discussed on our Omnibus podcast.
Dowling alumni Marc Rosen and James P. Wagner discuss the poetry anthology they co-edited, Perspectives: Poetry Concerning Autism and Other Disabilities. The collection, which includes contributions from Marc and James, provides a window into autism from those dealing with it in their lives: parents, children, students. Marc relates his expereinces growing up with autism, particularly with the school system, and offers some guidance to what has come to be known as autistic culture. We also talk about the role of the Internet in all of this, from both editor's experiences writing for theLong Island Examiner to the establishment of Local Gems Press.
As an interesting companion piece to this episode, you can also listen to our latest Research Leadership Learning podcast in which Dr. Rich Bernato, assistant dean of Dowling's School of Education, talks with Dr. Eric Shyman about the school's role in educating autistic students.
