TWU to host Samuel Lazerow Memorial Lecture July 13

7/05/06


DENTON — The effects of “24/7” media and information availability on the quality of life will be explored as the Texas Woman’s University School of Information Studies hosts the Institute for Scientific Information’s Samuel Lazerow Memorial Lecture.

The lecture, scheduled at 2 p.m. Thursday, July 13, will take place in room 313 of the Arts and Sciences Building, located on Oakland Avenue on TWU’s Denton campus. Admission is free, and a reception will follow in room 402 of Stoddard Hall. For a map of the Denton campus, visit www.twu.edu/maps.asp. For more information, call (940) 898-2602.

The lecture, titled “Information and the Quality of Life: Environmentalism for the Information Age,” will feature Dr. David Levy, a professor in The Information School of the University of Washington. Dr. Levy states that, despite their value, the newest information resources and technologies contribute to our sense of overload. He will discuss ways to find a new balance that uses these resources and technologies with greater wisdom.

Dr. Levy is the author of Scrolling Forward: Making Sense of Documents in the Digital Age. He holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford University and a diploma in calligraphy and bookbinding from the Roehampton Institute of London. He currently holds the Harissios Papamarkou Chair in Education and Technology at the Library of Congress, and is the recipient of a Contemplative Practice Fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies.

Thompson Scientific sponsors the ISI Samuel Lazerow Memorial Lecture Program.
