At 7 pm Monday, 18 April 2011, Oechsle 224, Marilyn Chandler McEntyre will invite us to consider practical ways to maintain public and private conversation with integrity in the midst of propaganda, spin, technologies that encourage oversimplified communication, and the hidden agendas of those who control mass media. Professor McEntyre is author of Caring for Words in a Culture of Lies. An Earth Week event, co-sponsored by the Department of English.
