This short video (often ‘TED Talks’) viewing and discussion group meets the 4th Tuesday of the month, from 7-8:30 p.m., in Room 19.
Topic: “Television Media: The Peek-a-Boo World”. As Neil Postman states, “The milieu in which each Technopoly flourishes is one in which the tie between information and human purpose has been severed, i.e., Information appears indiscriminately, directed at no one in particular, at enormous volume and at high speeds, and disconnected from theory, meaning, or purpose.”
Lyn Bartley, retired WMU Prof. of Communications, facilitates. All are welcome.
