Paul Booth on Time Travel in the Media

College of Communication Media and Cinema Studies Professor Paul Booth will be talking about time and the travel thereof (a subject he's previously written on in his book Time on TV) at an upcoming lecture hosted by the Comfort Society this Sunday, October 18.

Paul is the author of four books, including the aforementioned Time on TV, Digital Fandom, and Game Play, and the editor of three books, including Fan Phenomenon: Doctor Who. He researches fandom, new media, games, technology, popular culture, and cultural studies. He teaches classes in media studies, television narrative, convergence and digital media, fandom, board games, popular culture, social media, communication technology, and participatory cultures.

Comfort Society is a series of talks on anything from the useful to the unexpected. Talks take place Sundays at 11 a.m. and coffee is served. The event is free to the public. Location for Prof. Booth's lecture will be at 2579 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, IL 60647. The hour-long lecture starts at 11 a.m., so be sure to point your DeLorean, TARDIS, or what-have-you to the right locale coordinates and chrono setting.

This is an off-campus event hosted by a non-DePaul University organization.
