The Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication was founded in 1915 by Steadman Vincent Sanford who as president (1932–35) and chancellor of the University System of Georgia (1935–45), was architect of the modern University of Georgia. Its second graduate John Eldridge Drewry (1922), the school’s longest serving director and dean (1932–69), established the Peabody Awards in 1940, which remains the oldest and most prestigious award in all electronic media. This account details the evolution of a college that is among the nation’s elite, with a selective undergraduate program (juniors and seniors only) and an impressive 99.1 percent graduation rate; a national leader in its graduate research program, with study abroad programs and internships; and leadership in international research and outreach. Housed within the college are a number of centers, institutes, and certificate programs that distinguish its disciplines.

Erasing Public Memory : Race, Aesthetics, and Cultural Amnesia in the Americas
Product Code: H736
ISBN: 9780881460766
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $60.00
Erasing Public Memory confronts the unacknowledged and uninterrogated assimilation of racial categories into aesthetic theories. The editors and contributors based much of their analysis on exposing the phenomenon that race and racism is at the very center of knowledge production in the academy, a process designed not so much to achieve a disinterested will to epistemological thresholds of truth, but to invent a racialized meta-rationality to the exclusion of all alternative ways of knowing.

Price: $18.00
MEMEORY"S MIST is a collection of personal essays about life in the South as seen through the eyes of author Jackie K. Cooper. The stories contained hold up a mirror upon which the shared traits and experiences of life can be seen. Some of the experiences shared are humorous, some are sad, some are dramatic, and some are life affirming. Through them all runs a ribbon of hope and optimism. As Cooper reflects back on his past, the vision has been somewhat dimmed by the mist of memory but—with the help of family and friends—he is able to part the mist and have a clear view of the past which in many ways signals the future. As with his other books Cooper finds life full of surprises and simple joys amid the tumultuous and uncertain lives we all live.
