The Burlington Times-News and Elon University are again collaborating to hold a series of Community Connections forums.

Freedom of Expression is the theme of the first Community Connections in 2016-17 series.

As Madison Taylor, Times-News Editor, writes about the event, “we’ll explore what freedom of expression means in American culture today and what role it plays in our daily lives at work, on university campuses and within journalism and media. How does it impact objectivity in the media or perceptions of bias in the media?”

This Community Connections forum will happen on Tuesday, Nov. 15, from 7 to 8:15 p.m. in McKinnon Hall.

Panelists include:

  • John Bussian, Media Attorney
  • Natalie Allison Janicello- Reporter, The Times-News
  • Rich Landesberg, School of Communications
  • John Robinson, Former editor, Greensboro News & Record

Each panelist has valuable experience related to the contemporary media environment. Naeemah Clark, associate professor of communications, will moderate the event. 

The event is free and open to the public.

The mission of Community Connections is to build thoughtful dialogues with members of the Elon University community as well as those who in live in Alamance County and the surrounding area.
