The Winona State University CLASP Lecture Series will host “Examining the potential of citizen-sourcing for deliberating sustainable futures in online contexts” with Emilie Falc, associate professor of communication studies, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 15, in Stark Auditorium 103.
This talk on the future of political deliberation will analyze the use of citizen-sourcing, or collecting the ideas for grassroots organizing and political change in online forums, as it relates to environmental communication and sustainable futures. Examples of past and current online forums will be discussed and compared with grassroots organizing such as summits and post-theater performance discussions.
Falc has taught in the Communication Studies Department at WSU since 2001 and has been an active committee member for WSU’s Women’s and Gender Studies Program. Falc’s teaching embraces issues of civil discourse and gender equality in various communication contexts, including rhetoric and popular culture. Her recent research topics have focused around the areas of environmental communication and e-textbooks.
