A Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Lecture by Paige West of Barnard/Columbia

west-book.jpg
Aired on Thursday, March 8th.

Our guest on StudioTulsa is Prof. Paige West of Barnard College in Columbia University. She's an anthropologist who's been researching the Pacific Island country of Papua New Guinea for more than two decades. On Monday the 12th, beginning at 7pm in TU's Chapman Hall Lecture Hall, she'll give a Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Lecture entitled "Dispossession, Racism, and the Environment." (More on this talk is posted here.) Also on today's show, our commentator Mark Darrah reports on why he stopped watching TV (gasp!) in the early 1970s...and how he lived to tell about it.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
