Dr. Ted M. Coopman’s research on the internet and social movements was published in the most recent issue of the journal New Media And Society. Furthering the concept of ”Parallel Polis” developed by Czech theorist Vaclav Benda, Dr. Coopman and his colleagues analyze how digital technologies are uniquely positioned to reflect and facilitate political expression and discuss how the internet fosters and maintains parallel social and political institutions.

The Kite Runner Receives Arts Award

December 31st, 2013 by Anne Marie
Dr. Matthew Spangler’s play The Kite Runner, received the Liverpool Post Arts Award for Best Theatre Production.
“[The Kite Runner] was a play that excelled in its script, performances, design and direction. Co-created by the Liverpool and Nottingham Playhouses, the epic production spanned decades, continents and cultures to present a heart-wrenching tale as beautifully told on stage as in the pages of Khaled Hosseini’s best selling novel.”
Kudos to Dr. Spangler!
