Dr. Elizabeth Colton will speak on Thursday, February 21 at 4:00 p.m. in the Byrd Board Room. She will also speak during Dr. Gina Daddario's 2:00 class in HHH 107, which is open to anyone on campus.

Dr. Colton's talk is titled "Diplomacy and the Media: At Home in the World's Hot-Spots."

Dr. Colton taught at the Department of Mass Communication at Shenandoah in the 1990s. She left in 2000 and joined the Foreign Service where she worked as an Officer and Spokesperson at the American Embassy in Riyadh, Algiers, Khartoum, Baghdad and Islamabad.

Before the Foreign Service and Shenandoah, she worked for ABC News, NPR, NBC News, etc. Finally, remember those Iraqi soldiers in the Gulf War who surrendered to a journalist? She was that journalist.

This talk will be of especial interest to students with an interest in international politics, journalism, and the Foreign Service.
