usf event: media studies colloquium featuring dorothy kidd and john kim

this year, john kim (USF dissertation fellow and PhD candidate in communication at stanford university) and i have been working hard to launch the media studies colloquium. actually, to be more accurate, john has been working hard on the colloquium and i've tried my best to lend a helping hand.

the project has three goals:
  1. to foster community among media studies scholars and students;
  2. to share our work with one another; and
  3. to distribute media studies work to the larger USF community.
tomorrow, the colloquium begins with dorothy kidd and john kim presenting their current work on how new free trade and intellectual property regimes are shaping culture around the world. the talks take place from 3:00 - 4:00 pm in UC 419.

fall talks include:
    david silver, "web 2.0: beyond the hype"
    november 1, 3-4 pm, UC 400

    jeremaiah opiniano, yuchengco media fellow at USF's center for the pacific rim, "the outgrowth of a journalism for a distributed philippine economy"
    november 15, 3-4 pm, UC 419
spring speakers include bernadette barker-plummer, andrew goodwin, and susana kasier. for more information, visit our wiki. see you there!

Correction: Jeremaiah's talk is now 4:00 - 5:00 pm, UC 400 and being co-sponsored by Asian American Studies. I think I'll use some of roger stahl's shorts as well!

thanks for the update, john.

the first colloquium rocked. it was great to hear more about your and dorothy's work and it was fun to hear all the comments coming from around the table.

let's talk more about roger stahl's work - it would be great if we could bring him to campus, eh? annick and those in peace and justice would be interested too.
