Class on TH w/Ray Bradbury

Filed under: from your prof — sunyprof @ 6:47 am

Dear Teachers,

As a part of the BIG READ, we have the opportunity to be present at our distant location to hear Syracuse University Professor Bob Thompson, Director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture, interview Ray Bradbury on THursday afternoon in the WCNY (PBS affiliate) studios in Syracuse.

Bob will be set up in Syracuse to talk w/Mr. Bradbury at 4 o’clock, 1:00 p.m. west coast time. Bradbury lives in the Los Angeles area.

The Cortland set up will take place in 107 MILLER BLDG.

It is important for us to get into the room as close to 4:00 as possible although I am expecting that it will be a few minutes after 4:00 before the conversation gets underway.

Since we will begin earlier on TH, we’ll plan to finish class (in OM) by 6:30. I will expect to remain until 7:00 if anyone wants to chat with me about her/his project or seminar after class.

I am posting some of Thompson’s questions for RB on the blog. Provocative…yes.

I look forward to your posts on FEED, LAST BOOK and, of course, FAHRENHEIT.

Also you will want to sign up for seminars conducted by Allison and Sarah who will post their invitations on the blog and hand out folders on TH…

I also want to encourage anyone who can be on campus earlier on TH to attend the discussion at NOON in Jacobus (Brockway) Lounge sponsored by Dr. Alex Reid and Dan Harms from Memorial Library. The men will be talking about the “future of the book.” Reid discusses this event/phenomenom on his blog

I’m going to be there and it would be great to see some of you. This is a perfect corollary to our book discussions this week.

Take a look….

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Be in touch.
