NYT columnist, others, to discuss election
New York Times columnist David Brooks will join scholars
Karlyn Kohrs Campbell, Todd Gitlin and John Searle Oct. 20 and 21 to discuss various issues on “Discourse and Democracy.”

How the media chooses to inform the public about presidential elections and other issues on “Discourse and Democracy” will be the theme of the third annual Labrosse-Levinson Lecture series Oct. 20 and 21, featuring renowned New York Times columnist David Brooks.

Brooks will discuss the topic on the first day at 3:30 p.m. in the Rotunda Dome Room. On Oct. 21 at 2 p.m., eminent scholars Karlyn Kohrs Campbell, Todd Gitlin and John Searle will discuss the evolving nature of freedom of speech in America and how politicians, the media and special interest groups make use of that freedom to influence the public. The series, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Center on Religion and Democracy and the Institute for
Advanced Studies in Culture at U.Va. For details, visit: http://religionanddemocracy.lib.
