Social media executives to discuss networks’ impact on democracy
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - C-SPAN founder and CEO Brian Lamb will lead a classroom forum about media, politics and the presidential election at Purdue University on Feb. 28.
'Master Class With Brian Lamb', which is free and open to the public on a first-come basis, is 9-10:15 a.m. at the Lawson Computer Science Building, Room 1142. A continental breakfast will be provided. Lamb, also a Purdue alumnus, will lead a discussion with two liberal arts classes in communication and political science. Both classes are taught by Carolyn Curiel, clinical professor of communication and director of Project Impact, an initiative that features a variety of speakers leading up to the 2012 presidential election. The event also will be streamed live via the Purdue website gomeet.itap.purdue.edu/lambclass. In 2011, Purdue named the Brian Lamb School of Communication after the alumnus who founded C-SPAN in 1979. Lamb, a Lafayette native, received his bachelor's degree in communication from Purdue. During his visit, Lamb also will meet with communication faculty, graduate students and staff.
