Mission: TC Public Space is a newspaper of and for the Teachers College community. It publishes and disseminates the reports, ideas, and opinions of TC students, faculty, staff, and other community members to inform readers of institutional plans, policies, and other happenings as they affect the body of the College. With an autonomous editorial board, TC Public Space serves as a channel for communication between all sectors of the College. The primary goal of TC Public Space is to publicize the concerns of students, faculty, and staff to facilitate the translation of these concerns into action. Democratic action requires that there are no powers left unchecked within a community where all stakeholders have a voice. Additionally, TC Public Space will enhance the cohesiveness of Teachers College by enabling communication and cross-pollination between all departments, offices, and disciplines.

EDITOR'S NOTE REGARDING APRIL 2016 ISSUE (NOW AVAILABLE TO READ ONLINE AND IN-PRINT):
TC Public Space offers a sincere apology to contributors Menglin Guo and Alena Cybart, as well as to its readership, for a publishing error in the most recent April 2016 issue.

Additionally, we apologize to our readership for confusion caused by this error. As a submission-based journalistic publication, TCPS holds itself to a high standard of editing, and takes very seriously its mission to be a credible media outlet for the TC community. TCPS takes full responsibility for this mistake and plans to take extra precautionary measure against it happening again in future issues.

Hey folks, just 10 days left to submit for February's issue! Feeling creative? SUBMIT TODAY!

What do YOU believe it means to NAME something?

We use names not only to refer to particular individuals, but to organize the materiality of our existence. The practice of naming is ubiquitous; it is inherent to language. We name to identify, to differentiate, to understand. In a name, we seek meaning in relational form that corresponds to the world in which we live, and a desire to share with others our experience of living in it.

Visual Artist Spotlight:
"Does My Body Offend You?" by Nicole Elaine Avery

CAPTION: While strides of racial freedom are emerging socio-politically throughout contemporary America, the female black body, and its components, continues in 2015 to offend, as it is historically bound to Western ideologies of hyper-visibility, over-sexualization, and atypical standards within sectors of the performing arts.
