Professor Peiling Wang gave a Pecha-Kucha presentation on “POINTS: Perspectives On Information Network Technologies” at the inaugural UTK Mic/Nite hosted by the Office of the Provost to enhance the intellectual, interdisciplinary, and cultural life of the faculty and staff at UT Knoxville.

Associate Professor Bharat Mehra, assistant professors Kimberly Black and Vandana Singh, and Jenna Nolt’s (MS/IS ’11) article entitled “What is the Value of LIS Education? A Qualitative Analysis of the Perspectives of Rural Librarians in Southern and Central Appalachia” was published in the Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 52(4), 265-278.

Bharat Mehra was a panelist in “Queer UT: Slices of History” at OUTstanding!, the University of Tennessee’s first LGBTIQ conference, Oct. 22, 2011. 



Assistant Professor Michael Martinez was interviewed on Oct. 21 by Mona Nair of WATE Channel 6 on whether the images of Moammar Gadhafi’s death were too graphic for TV.   

Hubert Smith, WUTK public affairs show host and JEM lecturer, served as a panelist an Oct. 19 Knoxville mayoral forum co-sponsored by the Knoxville branch of the NAACP, WATE-TV and the Beck Cultural Center. During the forum Smith asked mayoral candidates Mark Padgett and Madeline Rogero,  “Have either of you ever been arrested or convicted, and if so for what?” Both candidates admitted to minor infractions in answer to Smith’s question.  

The Knoxville Focus also interviewed Smith about the Knoxville mayoral and city council races. 

Professor Mark Harmon will be having a book signing for his book, “Crashing the Commission: Confessions of a University Twit,” on Thursday, Nov. 3, at Union Avenue Books near Market Square. The book is a memoir covering the tumultuous four years Harmon served on the Knox County Commission. It is published by Tellico Books.
