From Fredonia College:
Dr. Mark Anthony Neal, a Duke University faculty member, author and Fredonia alumnus, will explore activism and the use of social media during a two-day Writers@Work residency on Sunday and Monday, Feb. 19 and 20.
Students will have numerous opportunities – a public talk, lecture/discussion session and writing workshop – to hear Dr. Neal’s perspectives on how communication is carried out in an evolving digital world. His presentations will differ from past Writer@Work sessions by focusing on Twitter activism and writing in a digital world.
“At a volatile and important time in our country, we’ve seen our students at Fredonia continue to engage in political dialogue, activism and outreach. Not only is Dr. Neal a distinguished professor with multiple publications, he also brings with him an expertise in writing about and for social justice,” said Katie Szwejbka, an organizer of the Writers@Work series and graduate assistant in the Department of English.
