Accessing Internet in Idaho
Community members are invited to join the Moscow Public Library for Accessing Internet in Idaho with Dr. Katie Blevins on Tuesday, November 16 at 5:30 p.m.
The pandemic has highlighted the reliance we have on internet for daily tasks. Attendees will learn about and discuss the issues surrounding access to internet in the state of Idaho: geographical, federal and state regulation, designation as a utility, and technology.
Katie Blevins received her Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University. Prior to arriving at the University of Idaho she spent four years as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Communications at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. Her teaching focuses on media law, issues of gender and representation, new technology, and global media. Her research looks at government transparency, the regulation of new technology, and social media activism through the lens of representation.
The event is planned to take place in the Lecompte Auditorium in the 1912 Center, but those interested in attending are encouraged to check the library’s website at latahlibrary.org and Facebook page at facebook.com/latahlibrary leading up to the event in case pandemic-related changes have been made.
All programs are free and open to the public. Masks required at this event. For more information, contact Bailey Gillreath-Brown at email@example.com.
