Douglas Rushkoff to speak at GVSU

If you have ever taken an intro art, design or cultural studies class [or even a visual culture class. GO CALVIN!], you may have the seen the PBS documentary The Merchants of Cool. A documentary about the tastemakers,

the people that create and market what's "cool". Douglas Rushkoff is responsible for this great documentary.

"The Art & Design Department at Grand Valley State University, in partnership with the College of Interdisciplinary Studies, the School of Communications and the Grand Rapids Institute for Information Democracy, is pleased to present a lecture by internationally respected author and media theorist, DOUGLAS RUSHKOFF. Rushkoff's lecture, entitled The Persuaders: Marketing & the Creation of the Citizen-Consumer, has been scheduled for October 12th, 7pm, at the Louis Armstrong Theatre on Grand Valley's Allendale campus."
