Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation and UMW Center for Leadership and Media Studies is pleased to announce the ‘Open Dialogue’ -The Global President: International Media and the U.S. Government.
When: October 7, 2013
Where: Woodard Campus Center, Red Room
Time: 4-5 p.m.
Please join Stephen Farnsworth in the department of political science on October 7, 2013 for an engaging session and lively discussion on his newly published book The Global President: International Media and the U.S. Government.
This book provides an expansive international examination of news coverage of U.S. political communication, and the roles the U.S. government and the presidency play in an increasingly communicative and interconnected political world. This comprehensive yet concise text includes analyses of not just the presidency, but U.S. foreign policy and contemporary political media itself. The realities of an ever-changing political landscape are magnified nowhere more greatly than in the realm of foreign policy, and the stakes surrounding the need for quality communicational skills are no higher than at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue because – when the voices of the U.S. government speak – the world is listening.
Light refreshments will be served!
