Kimberly Moffitt, assistant professor of American studies, is the co-editor of a new book, “The Obama Effect: Multidisciplinary Renderings of the 2008 Campaign.” The book analyzes Obama’s presidential candidacy and places it within the context of the American experience with race and the media.
Moffitt and her co-editor, Heather Harris, associate professor of business communication at Stevenson University, appeared on the Marc Steiner Show on February 15 to discuss the book. The conversation can be heard here.
Moffitt and her co-editors will be on campus on March 2 at 4 p.m. on the seventh floor of the Albin O. Kuhn Library as part of the spring Humanities Forum. For more information, visit http://my.umbc.edu/events/5338.
