Research conducted in St. Bonaventure’s Journalists’ Workshop experiential learning course was presented at the New York State Communication Association conference on Oct. 17.
Anne and Richard Lee, who teach the course, are working with their students to determine whether the sense of community is shifting away from traditional geographic-based communities and turning toward topic- and interest-based communities formed around subjects such as sports, theater and public policy.
The research, presented during an “Are You in or Out? Communities and their Boundaries” panel discussion, also was the topic of an op-ed article co-authored by the Lees in the Oct. 18 Buffalo News.

Dr. Chris Mackowski, professor of journalism and mass communication, has co-authored an article that appears in the latest edition of Civil War Times magazine.
“Another Butchery: The Third and Final Union Attack on Spotsylvania’s ‘Bloody Angle’” examines the May 18 assault during the 1864 battle of Spotsylvania Court House. The assault is overshadowed by two earlier attacks — May 10 and May 12 — yet its scope and size made it one of the largest attacks of the campaign up to that point.
Mackowski collaborated on the article with frequent co-author Kristopher D. White. Both have served as historians for the National Park Service at Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park.
With nearly 50,000 subscribers, Civil War Times is the largest and oldest magazine devoted to the American Civil War.
Dr. Kimberly Young, program director of SBU’s Master's in Strategic Leadership program, was one of the distinguished panelists at the National Academy of Sciences conference on Digital Media and Developing Minds Oct. 14-16, 2015, at the Beckman Center in Irvine, Calif. She was on a panel dealing with Digital Addiction and Children.
The colloquium’s purpose was to identify and report on state-of-the-art research on the impact of digital media on developing minds; establish a dialogue between medical researchers and those in the social sciences who study media effects, educators, funders and industry; and set the agenda for future research needed in order to maximize the benefits and minimize the risks to children and teens in the digital age.
