Our Annual Geiger Lecture is around the corner! Join us in welcoming Dr. Michael Goodman, from the University of Reading in the United Kingdom for his presentation - The Psycho-Political
Economies of Celebrity Humanitarians: The Cultural Vanguard of a Virtuous
April 27th at 3PM - 4:30PM
Celebrities are increasingly front and
center in public debates on everything from solving world poverty to halting
genocide. Dr. Goodman will examine the role these pop icons play as concerned individuals
with the unique ability to garner interest in a particular cause or issue from
the general population, and its effectiveness.
In addition to the
lecture, we will be recognizing several student accomplishments and
acknowledging our graduating seniors.
Hope to see you there!
