Jan. 31 Communication Colloquium focuses on Internet governance

The Spring Communication Colloquium opens Thursday, Jan. 31, 2 p.m. in 16-18 Swanson Hall, with a discussion on “Regulating cyberspace: Exploring the public debate on copyright, privacy, and indecency, and the Internet”, presented by a graduate student panel led by Slavka Antonova, professor of communication.

David Potter, a doctoral student in communication, and Bennett Gackle and Nicholas Long, master's students in business administration, will present their investigation on how online public forums reflect on the challenges that the open architecture of the Internet has created to the established regulatory and legal regimes in the USA.

For four seasons, the Communication Colloquium has functioned as the primary venue for graduate students in communication to present their research and receive peer and faculty feedback. Professors showcase their current research as well, and each semester a prominent international or U.S. scholar in communication is invited to share advanced perspectives.

All are welcome.

Inquiries on the event should be directed to Slavka Antonova, graduate director, Communication Program, at 777.4184, or email slavka.antonova@email.und.edu .
