n tre series CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, Feb. 24 - Monday, Feb. 27, 2006 - 63 Journalists, Super Bowl com- mercials, corporate scandals and murder and unrest among Europe's Muslim population will be the featured topics during the University of Delaware's 21st annual Land & Sea Lecture Series to be held throughout March in Lewes and Milford. The free series features mem- bers of the UD faculty. Sessions will meet at 10 a.m. at the Virden Center on UD's Hugh R. Sharp Campus at 700 Pilottown Road in Lewes and at 1:30 p.m. in the pub- lic meeting room of the Milford Public Library at I I S.E. Front Street. The series will open on Thursday, March 2, as Ben Yagoda, a widely published jour- nalist and professor of English, speaks on My Life as a Hack: Thirty Years as a Freelance Journalist. Over the course of three decades, Yagoda, who directs the UD journalism pro- gram, has written for more than 60 different periodicals, including "The New York Times Magazine,' Esquire," "GQ," "Philadelphia Magazine" and the "New Republic." He will describe some of the high points of his career, includ- ing interviews with Uma Thurman, Susan Sarandon and Jay Leno, and some of the low ones, including hate mail from New York Mayor Ed Koch and 43 rejection letters from the "New Yorker." On Friday, March 10, John Antil, associate professor in UD's Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics, will speak on Super Bowl Advertising-When A Second is Worth $80,000. Antil, who specializes in sports marketing, advertising, brand equity and buyer behavior, will discuss the huge costs of Super Bowl advertising and whether the companies that buy commercial air time during the big game are getting their money's worth. Antil frequently serves as a marketing consultant to various corpora- tions, and is an expert on the effects of mood and emotion on advertising, marketing efficiency, subliminal persuasion and, in par- ticular, Super Bowl advertising. The lecture on Friday, March 17, to be offered in Lewes only, will feature one of the world's leadiv, g business experts as Charles Elson, Edgar S. Woolard Jr. Chair and director of UD's John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance, will dis- cuss The Theory and History of Corporate Governance Reform. Elson, whose expertise includes corporations, securities regulation and corporate governance, will discuss recent corporate scandals, including those at Enron and WorldCom. He has written exten- sively on boards of directors and is a much sought after contributor on corporate governance issues to various publications. On Friday, March 24, Gary May, professor of history, will dis- cuss his widely acclaimed book, "The Informant: The FBI, the Ku Klux Klah and the Murder of Viola Liuzzo." The book looks at the murder of the civil rights worker. The book is spellbinding and serves as a cautionary tale as the United States again turns to the widespread use of informants in the international war on terrorism. May is a UD Excellence in Teaching award winner noted for bringing history alive to his stu- dents in an energetic, educational and entertaining manner. Closing out the series on Friday, March 31, Mark Miller, professor of political science and interna- tional relations, will speak on Integration of Muslin Communities in Europe: The Strategic Imperative. Miller, who has testified before Congress, the Department of State and several federal commissions, said that recent attacks in New York, Washington, D.C Madrid and London by radical Muslims has made assessment of the threat emanating from Europe's Muslim population a priority for the United States. While the danger posed by the radical Muslim fringe is very real, he said most research reveals an integration process for Muslims that is not fundamentally different from the barriers and challenges faced by earlier waves of immigrants. The Land & Sea lectures are free and open to the public, and are sponsored by UD's Office of Alumni and University Relations. Aut0motic, Gold / Ust*22,220 o.w so 1,955 FINANCING ~ II Autor.o.c.
