January Series Calvin College

Neil Postman, Ph.D.

"Questioning the Media"

Neil Postman, Ph.D. Best-selling author and well-known cultural critic Neil Postman poses six questions for The January Series audience. The answers, he says, are individual and personal and not as important as the questions, which provide a defense against the intrusion of technology into our political, social and even spiritual lives. With characteristic wit and candor, Dr. Postman offers thought-provoking insight into our transformation from a society that uses technology to one that is shaped by it. Author of Amusing Ourselves To Death, which sold over 400,000 copies worldwide, Dr. Postman also wrote Technopoly, How to Watch Television News, and The End of Education. He is chair of the Department of Culture and Communication at New York University.
