Breakout Room Descriptions (more coming soon):
Breakout Room 1: Ursinus Arts Scene with Meghan Brodie ’00, Associate Professor of Theater
Join this breakout room to learn about the lively on-campus Ursinus arts scene. We’ll also chat about what entertainment you are watching! From plays to music to exhibitions, we can discuss it all…even those episodes of Love Island UK you might be streaming because although the series is a disaster, you can’t avert your eyes.
Breakout Room 2: Is non-partisan journalism possible? with Tony Nadler, Associate Professor of Media & Communication Studies
In this breakout room, Dr. Nadler will offer a quick overview of the rise of the ideal of “objectivity” in American journalism. Then, we’ll discuss contemporary debates about whether journalists can be objective and whether it’s possible and/or desirable for journalists to gain trust across parties in our polarized moment.
Breakout Room 3: Thank you, Juan Valdez!Dr. Rebecca Evans, associate professor of politics & international relations
In this breakout room, we will discuss the people and places who help bring you your morning cup of coffee. Along the way, we’ll consider some of the ways in which coffee has impacted history, economics, and politics in several producing nations and in the US.
