Web logs, or “blogs,” will be the topic of discussion when Morningside College holds the panel discussion “Death of Journalism: Blogs, Bloggers, and Blogging” on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at 11:45 a.m. in the UPS Auditorium of the Lincoln Center, 3627 Peters Avenue. The free event, sponsored by Morningside’s Academic and Cultural Arts Series (ACAS), is open to the public.
The panel will discuss the nature of Web logs, who participates in “blogging,” and what the mainstream media’s reaction is to “blogging.” A “blog” is a Web-based publication or Web site consisting primarily of periodic articles, commentaries, news articles, and recommendations, much like an online diary or journal.
Guest panelists for the discussion will be Morningside College faculty members Dr. Ross Fuglsang, associate professor of mass communication, Dr. Greg Guelcher, associate professor of history and political science, and Dr. Mark Heistad, assistant professor of mass communication at Morningside, as well as several Morningside College students.
For more information, contact Dr. Mark Heistad at (712) 274-5299, or Morningside College’s office of Public Relations at (712) 274-5320.
