10th Season of Great Minds, Great Ideas Lecture Series Kicks off in September

Lectures in Cazenovia and Manlius to explore lives and work of important thinkers

— One of the founders of modern linguistics, Chomsky has been recognized as a leading voice of dissent in the United States and internationally for more than 40 years. This lecture will examine Chomsky's political work, with particular attention to his analysis of the mass media, touch on some of his famous entanglings with intellectuals like Foucault and Lippmann and investigate important questions about the role of the intellectual in society — particularly the waning notion of the public intellectual.

Ó Baoill joined the faculty at Cazenovia in 2009, teaching courses in broadcasting, journalism and media. His Ph.D. is from the University of Illinois, where his research focused on the impact of the internet on community radio stations in the United States. He has also published on electronic voting and the interaction of the internet and democratic debate. His research is generally focused on the interaction of technology, democracy and public participation.

The 2013-2014 Lecture Series is sponsored by Doris Eversfield Webster, Cazenovia resident and Cazenovia College alumna from the class of 1946.
