The Communication Department will host a lecture today at 7 p.m. in Gasson 100 by media studies expert Bruce Gronbeck titled "Images of Terror, Narratives of Redemption: American Culture Responds to 9/11."
Gronbeck, A. Craig Baird Distinguished Professor of Public Address at the University of Iowa, will discuss three major "narratives of redemption" that emerged in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks: institutional incompetence; the coming of a New World order; and, in particular, a look back to "traditional values and characterologies" for the strength to move into the future.
After tomorrow, March 15, the University will no longer distribute paper versions of paycheck information to most employees.
This information, known as "advice," will be available to employees via their password-protected on-line records at the University's Agora World Wide Web site, www.bc.edu/agora.
Those personnel in Dining Service, Facilities Services, the Boston College Police Department or St. Mary's Hall who are paid hourly will continue to receive paper "paystubs."
For more information, contact the Human Resources Service Center at ext.2-4772.
The 2002 Heinz Bluhm Memorial Lecture, which takes place on March 21 at 4:30 in Fulton 511, will feature Neil Hertz, professor of English and Humanities at Johns Hopkins University.
Hertz, a specialist of Romantic and modern literature, will present "Neutral Territory: Henry James and Marguerite Duras." His lecture will focus on James' The Beast in the Jungle and Duras' La Maladie de la mort.
