The University of Tennessee Press is publishing a book by Professor Jim Stovall titled Seeing Suffrage: The 1913 Washington Suffrage Parade, Its Photographs and Its Effects on the American Political Landscape. Because Mar. 3 is the centennial of that parade, the East Tennessee History Center, the Knox County Public Library and UT Press are sponsoring a presentation on the event and the book this Sunday. The presentation will be at 2 pm in the History Center auditorium in downtown Knoxville. The discussion will center on a few of the more than 100 photographs in the book, why this event occurred in the way that it did, and why it set the suffrage movement on a different trajectory that eventually led to the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Professor Barb Kaye will be representing CCI at Open Mic Night on Wednesday, Mar. 13. She’ll be presenting “Curses!,” her MA-TV (L) rated research about profanity on television.  

The fun (pizza and beverages) starts at 5:30.  Presentations begin at 6:30. She’s the first one up.


Doctoral student Natalie Manayeva, along with Dr. Yuri Drakakhrust, co-authored a book chapter entitled “Origins and characteristics of public trust for independent media in Belarus” that appears in Convergence: Media in the Future, published in Cracow, Poland.
