Professor's Play Debuts
December 22, 2010
On Nov 17 - 20, 2010, "Kent State: A Requiem" debuted at Columbus State College in Ohio. Written by Professor J. Gregory Payne, the play recalls the Kent State shootings of May 4, 1970, where four college students were killed by the Ohio National Guard while protesting the American invasion of Cambodia.
The play remembers the lives of the students and explores the incidents that led to the shootings.
Faculty experts can comment on the upcoming 2013 Boston mayoral race as well as a range of political stories, including initial coverage and ongoing developments leading up to the Massachusetts gubernatorial race in November 2014.
Dr. Angela N. Hosek and her colleague Dr. Rebecca DiVerniero received the Top Paper Award (out of 155 papers submitted) for their project titled, "Twitter as a Classroom Tool: Exploring the Use, Benefits, and Downfalls from the Perspectives of Instructors and Students," from the Human Communication and Technology Division. Dr. Hosek was also on the Top Panel for the Basic Course Division. Both took place at the National Communication Association Annual Meeting in November.
