Publishing research is one way that professors stay up-to-date in their fields of study and enhance their teaching in the classroom. For example, departmental faculty recently authored two peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles and two chapters in edited academic books.
Dr. Chitra Akkoor’s chapter titled, “Is he my real uncle?: Re-constructing family in the diaspora,” published in the 2014 edited collection, Remaking “Family” Communicatively.
Dr. Sander Lee’s chapter titled, “Love, meaning, and God in the later films of Woody Allen,” published in the 2014 anthology, A Companion to Woody Allen. In addition, his article titled, “The moral implications of the film, Gettysburg,” published this year in volume 18 of the scholarly journal, Film and Philosophy.

It’s that time again for students to seek advising for course registration, which officially opens on Monday, Oct. 20, 2014
In preparation for picking their Spring 2015 semester classes, communication students are encouraged to attend an advising meeting (and ice cream social!) on Wednesday, Oct. 15, from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Mountain View Room of the Student Center.
While enjoying free ice cream, Lambda Pi Eta students will share their advice about progressing through the communication major. In addition, faculty teaching COMM 479: Senior Project in the spring will discuss the themes of their sections of the course so students can sign up for the one that best fits their educational and career goals. Finally, the department chair will share news about work-study opportunities that he arranged with the college and local businesses especially for communication students.
Students who want to declare the major in communication are also invited to this event.
The Department of Communication and Philosophy is excited to officially begin the search for two new tenure-track faculty!
Both positions are at the rank of Assistant Professor and scheduled to start at Keene State College in August 2015. However, one position is for a scholar of “Communication: Digital Culture/Technology” while the other position is for a scholar of “Social and Political Philosophy.”
Throughout the month of October, artists-in-residence will collaborate with Keene State College students, faculty, and local Keene community members to perform democracy.
This civic engagement project is called City Council Meeting and involves art exhibitions, talks, a public dinner party and forum, book discussions, debate, and theatre.
Serving as the humanities expert on this unique collaboration is Dr. Brian Kanouse, a lecturer in the Department of Communication and Philosophy who is also the public speaking course coordinator and faculty advisor to the college’s Debate Club. Specifically, Dr. Kanouse will facilitate the following events:
Monday, Oct. 13, 6 to 7:30 p.m., Main Theatre in Redfern Arts Center: “The Long Table: A Public Dinner Party and Forum on Presentation of Self”
Thursday, Oct. 30, 6 to 7:30 p.m., Trustees Room in Keene Public Library: “A Debriefing of City Council Meeting and the Democratic Experience”
City Council Meeting is coming to Keene thanks to funding from Keene State College, the Keene Public Library, the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Theater Project, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the New Hampshire Humanities Council, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Humanities Experience.
