LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Bill Grigsby, Ph.D., associate professor of sociology, will share his current research on the relationship between democratic institutions and commercial news media for the next colloquium at EOU Thursday, May 28.
His presentation, “Democracy on Junk Food: Processed News and the Body Politic,” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. A reception follows and the event will be streamed live at https://new.livestream.com/eou/events/3747597.
Americans’ taste in junk food has led to a public health problem and Grigsby asks what consequences might be expected if news “diets” suffered the same fate?
