Research group presentations start today!

Posted by Dan - July 31, 2009

Reminder that besides being joined by Professor Michael Buckland today, we have our first round of research group presentations. Come and learn what your fellow classmates will contribute to our history of information. Today’s line up features a set of presentations looking at issues of information use around WWII. We’ll be hearing about FDR and his use of the media, cinema and propaganda, the French Resistance, and cryptography.

And on food and TV…

And on a completely unrelated note, those of you who enjoyed our lecture on Wednesday and the discussion of TV in the home, might find this forthcoming article in New York Times Magazine by Michael Pollan interesting. See “Out of the Kitchen, Onto the Couch.”
