Communication Professor Speaks at UN
Professor Donal Carbaugh, (communication) spoke to the Honorary Consuls at the United Nations on April 2-3, 2006. Carbaugh's talk explored dynamics in face-to-face and televised contacts between people from Finland, Russian, and various residents of the US, including Native Americans, the Blackfeet in particular. The talk was based on his longstanding research in international and Intercultural communication, most recently published in his book, Cultures in Conversation, and covered in Indian Country Today (the largest newspaper in the US for Native Americans), Vapa Sanaa (the largest Finnish newspaper in North America), and the Finnish American Reporter (the largest English newspaper in North America about Finnish matters). Carbaugh was invited to the UN by Osmo Lipponen, Ambassador and Consul General of Finland.
