Thought on Tap

Join us at the University Laughing Planet on December 13th at 5:30 pm for the next Thought on Tap: “The Role of the Humanities in the News and Social Media.”  The discussion will be facilitated by Bretton Rodríguez, lecturer of Core Humanities, and feature the following guests: Katherine Fusco (English), Lydia Huerta (GRI and Communication Studies), Paromita Pain (Reynolds School of Journalism), and Joey Lovato (KUNR and The Nevada Independent). What roles do the humanities play in the news and social media? How can the humanities be used to address issues like “fake news” and faith in journalism? How do the humanities help us to understand the influence of social media on society today? Join us as we tackle these and other important questions. Light snacks will be provided. Grab a bite and beverage and join the conversation.

Thought on Tap is brought to you by the Core Humanities program, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Laughing Planet. We are interested in featuring faculty and students from throughout the University and people in our communities—people in the humanities, social sciences, performing arts, visual arts, etc. If you are interested in participating in a salon, please send a message to or call the Core Humanities main office (775.784.4447).
