Elihu Katz is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, as well as Distinguished Trustee Professor of Communication and Sociology at the Annenberg School of Communication, University of Pennsylvania. Katz is a sociologist and media scientist who is known for his lifetime of contributions to the field of mass communication research, especially media effects. His first book, co-authored with his mentor Paul Lazarsfeld, was Personal Influence: The Part Played by People in the Flow of Mass Communication (Routledge, 1955), an attempt to observe the flow of influence at the intersections of mass and interpersonal communication. It is cited extensively as an influential work in the development of the two-step flow model of communication. Katz is a recipient of the McLuhan Teleglobe Canada Award (UNESCO), the Burda Prize (in media res), and the Israel Prize for social sciences. He is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Series Overview

What is Communication? (2021) will investigate instantiations and permutations of communication via models of exchange, modes of inquiry, and meanings of community. While communication has been conceptualized as models of transportation, transmission, and ritual, communication is also characterized by modes of sharing, imparting, connecting, and participating. These characteristics can contribute to democracy, as well as facilitating the commons and community/fellowship. This year marks the sixth collaboration with scholars from the natural sciences, social sciences and arts.

Please see whatis.uoregon.edu for more details and other featured keynotes.

The What is…? Speaker Series is sponsored by the Knight Chair in Communication Research, UO Women in Graduate Science, the Oregon Humanities Center, New Media and Culture Program, and the Department of Philosophy. Additional gratitude to our supporters.

May 28 noon

Timothy J. Williams, Clark Honors College, and 2020-21 Oregon Humanities Center Faculty Research Fellow

This book project is a cultural history of prisoners of war and the literature they wrote and published during the era of the US Civil War. It focuses on southern men held in northern prisons. These men played important roles in developing a unique genre of southern history commonly called the “Lost Cause,” which at once exalts southern military leadership and outlines southerners’ justifications for secession, slavery, and white supremacy. Their stories illustrate how this pernicious regional history took shape. In the process, it also reveals insight into wartime carceral culture and its impact on authorship and readership in the twentieth century.
