Kent State University School of Communication Studies to Hold Fall Colloquium Series

Faculty and Graduate Students Invited

The School of Communication Studies will host its fall Colloquium Series beginning Friday, Sept. 4. Each semester, the school hosts the series which consists of three to four lectures presented by faculty and graduate students from the school, the university and around the country.

The series provides an opportunity for faculty and graduate students to foster intellectual and collaborative discussions, and to stay informed about current research efforts. All faculty and graduate students are invited to attend at no cost.

The Colloquium Series is held the first Friday of each month at 4 p.m. in Taylor Hall room 146.

The dates for the Fall 2015 semester are:

  • Friday, Sept. 4
  • Friday, Nov. 6
  • Friday, Dec. 4

The Sept. 4 colloquium is Desi Films: Articulating Images of South Asian Identity in a Global Communication Environment, presented by Rekha Sharma, Ph.D. candidate and School of Communication Studies assistant professor. The discussion will focus on an examination of Indian diasporic films as a vehicle for cultural articulation and debate; Sharma will present her research and take questions from the audience.

A colloquium will not be held on Oct. 2 as the school will instead host its Centennial Award Celebration.  Additional details about the upcoming colloquiums will be available at www.kent.edu/comm at a later date. For questions or consideration for a future colloquium, contact Suzy D’Enbeau, School of Communication Studies assistant professor, at sdenbeau@kent.edu.
