Dr. Barry Mauer of the University of Central Florida Texts and Technology Program will lead a TEXTSHOP workshop from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24 in the Nebraskan Student Union.

Sponsored by the UNK Department of English, the workshop will explore the role of electronic media in the traditional English classroom. At 12:15 p.m., he will give a talk titled Proposal for a Monument to Lost Data. His presentation will take place in the NSU Cedar Room.

According to Dr. Sam Umland, UNK English professor, the English Department’s TEXTSHOP is a forum (K-20) in which faculty members and administrators meet together and focus on fundamental issues of teaching and learning, and how electronic media can help improve them. The workshop is open to all educators interested in learning more about integrating electronic media with traditional literary practices.

Dr. Mauer teaches courses in film theory and history, digital rhetoric, and electronic media at the University of Central Florida.
