Documentary by Prof. Kevin Howley to be Presented at Central States Communication Association Convention
December 27, 2005December 27, 2005, Greencastle, Ind. - Victory At Sea?: Culture Jamming Dubya, a documentary film by Kevin Howley, assistant professor of communication and theatre at DePauw University, has been accepted for presentation at the 2006 Central States Communication Association (CSCA) convention, to be held in Indianapolis April 5-9, 2006. The film has also been deemed the top "original media" submission in the media studies interest group.
"Congratulations are especially in order because this was an exceptionally competitive year, and both reviewers and programmers had many difficult decisions to make," Michaela D. E. Meyer assistant professor of communication studies at Christopher Newport University, the chair of the CSCA's media studies interest group, wrote to Howley. "As an interest group, we were only able to accept a little over half of what was submitted, which is an incredibly competitive convention acceptance rate."
In addition to a screening of his documentary, Dr. Howley will also take part in a discussion session with the audience.
In February, Victory at Sea? was screened at the Winter 2005 Mini-Cinema Film Festival in Fairmont, West Virginia. Read more in this previous story.
