Speaker Examines Diversity
Is diversity valued? What does it mean to say we value diversity? Dr. Jacqueline Martinez, associate professor of communication at Arizona State University, will help answer these questions when she shares her work during a presentation on Thursday, Nov. 9, 12:00 - 1:15 p.m., at Penn State York. Can Diversity, as a "Value," be embodied? A Phenomenological Interrogation of U.S. American Culture, is presented as part of the Communication Arts and Sciences (CAS) lecture series at noon in the Community Room of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center. The program is free and open to the public.
Martinez will share her research and answer questions during the presentation. Her research focuses on communication as it mediates the relationship among individual experience, social practices, and cultural histories. Martinez is an affiliate faculty member with the School of Justice and Social Inquiry, the Asian Pacific American Studies Department, and the Women and Gender Studies Program at Arizona State University, Tempe Campus. Her most recent publication is "Semiotic Phenomenology and Intercultural Communication Scholarship: Meeting the Challenge of Racial, Ethnic, and Cultural Difference," which appears in the October 2006 Western Journal of Communication.
This presentation is sponsored by the Communication Arts and Sciences (CAS) program at Penn State York and the CAS Club.
