"Dead Air: The Disappearance of Jodi Husentruit"

In the summer of 1995, Jodi Huisentruit was on her way to work at Mason City TV station KIMT when she vanished without a trace. The case captivated a nation, but after almost 16 years there is little new evidence about the case. Beth Bednar, former KAAL-TV (Austin, MN) news anchor, revisits the case in her book, Dead Air: The Disappearance of Jodi Huisentruit. Bednar will speak about her time as an anchor in the same Northern Iowa/Southern Minnesota market and the research she did for the book.

Folk Songs and the U.S. Labor Movement: A Singing Lecture with Corey Dolgon

Corey Dolgon, a Ph.D. in American Culture and Sociology Professor, has been performing “singing lectures” for more than a decade. Focusing on the role that folksongs play in the U.S. labor movement, Corey’s words and music bring both history and theory to life. He is a long-time labor activist and community organizer and has used folk songs to build solidarity on the line and engage students in the classroom. This singing lecture covers labor history from a multicultural perspective and examines the function of folk songs in workers’ lives, labor and organizing. This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the UNI Interpreters Theatre, the Department of Communication Studies and the College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences.
