C-SPAN founder returns to teach master class

September 29, 2015  


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — C-SPAN founder and executive chairman Brian Lamb will lead a Purdue University master class Oct. 5 that focuses on American politics, the 2016 presidential election and current trends in government and media.

"Master Class with Brian Lamb" is 10:30 a.m. to noon in Lawson Building, Room 1142, and the event is free and open to the public on a first-come basis. The event, which is organized by the Purdue Institute for Civic Communication, is an audience-interactive forum. Audience members will be able to participate in the class discussions by asking questions at microphones or via Twitter @PurdueICC.

The class is co-taught by Lamb and Ambassador Carolyn Curiel, a clinical professor in the Brian Lamb School of Communication and former White House senior aide, U.S. ambassador and journalist. Curiel is executive director of PICC.

Lamb is a Lafayette native and he received his bachelor's degree in communication from Purdue in 1963. In 2011, Purdue named its School of Communication after Lamb for his excellence in communication.

PICC is a nonpartisan initiative for applied and experiential undergraduate learning in the fields of issues policy, citizenship and communication, and it is made possible by the Daniels Fund of Denver and a partnership with C-SPAN, the Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network. Students in any major are eligible to participate in PICC.
