For the fall semester 2013, I will be the Harron Family Endowed Chair in Communication at Villanova University, outside Philadelphia, PA. I will teach an undergraduate seminar on Socialization to Cultural Identity, and a graduate seminar on Social Construction Theory. I will also give a public lecture during the semester on intercultural dialogue. I will remain Director of the Center for Intercultural Dialogue simultaneously, as this is a temporary assignment.
This endowed chair rotates, so that a different senior faculty member in Communication is appointed each year for fall semester. Dr. Raka Shome held the position in 2011, and Dr. Yves Winkin held it in 2012; I will be the third to serve in this position. Those interested in applying in future should look for a call for applications, typically issued in August or September for the following year.
Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz, Director
Center for Intercultural Dialogue
