 “American Political Discourse Since 1983: The Impact of Cable TV, Email, Twitter, Facebook and Other Technology Innovations” presented by Dick Haven, Emeritus Professor, Communication


The Fairhaven Lecture Series, sponsored by Fairhaven Senior Services and UW-Whitewater’s Office of Continuing Education will celebrate thirty years of community discourse this fall.  Faculty and community leaders have delivered informative and thought –provoking lectures to more than 20,000 people since 1983.  This fall, lectures will reflect on “Turning Points,” the critical events and influential people since the series began thirty years ago, and how they have shaped our lives today.  Faculty from various academic areas on campus will discuss such issues as technology, HIV/AIDS, Hurricane Katrina, and American and international politics.

All lectures are free to the public and are held on Mondays at 3 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Fairhaven Retirement Community, 435 West Starin Road, Whitewater. Street parking is adjacent to the building. Unable to attend?
