More on our speaker and program:

Alex Cummings is an assistant professor at Georgia State University and a historian of law, media, public policy and the American city. As noted in his GSU profile, “his work examines how the transition to an ‘information society’ reshaped American political cutture and economic policy, as well as the built environment.” His first book, published in 2013 by Oxford University Press, is “Democracy of Sound: Music Piracy and the Remaking of American Copyright in the Twentieth Century.” If there’s enough interest, copies of his book MAY be available for sale at our meeting at a reduced rate of $20. (Be sure you answered Question #8 in our online RSVP form.) And this program qualifies for a half hour of continuing education credit.
