Middle East the focus of Colby speech

COLBY -- Andrea Stanton, assistant professor of Islam at the University of Denver, will speak at 7 p.m. Nov. 27 in the Northwest Kansas Cultural Arts Center at Colby Community College.

Stanton's recent research focuses on government management of religious broadcasting in Palestine in the 1930s and 1940s, and the history of Middle Eastern governments controlling radio and television, and how new technology, such as satellite communication, is making that more difficult.

The presentation is free and open to the public.
