Event Description

Full Description:
Join S.W. Brooks Fellow Professor Karen Manarin, Mount Royal University, Calgary, as she gives a public lecture on the topic of “Why Read?”

Professor Manarin will explore how twenty-first-century technologies are changing the way people read, or making reading irrelevant altogether, even as more research is being conducted on the cognitive and affective benefits of reading. Professor Manarin outlines some of these larger trends before examining reading in a specific context: an undergraduate education. Professor Manarin is visiting the University of Queensland as a keynote speaker for the School of Communication and Arts Conference 'Reading and Writing in the Twenty-First-Century Literary Studies Classroom: Theory and Practice,' 6-8 July 2017

RSVP by 2 July 2017: https://survey.its.uq.edu.au/Checkbox/2017SWBrooksPublicLectureRSVP.aspx
