David Bullock Will Present November 10
By: Camlynne Waring
David Bullock, chair of the Department of Communications and Languages, will present the 2013 Distinguished Faculty Lecture Sunday, Nov. 10, 7 p.m. in the Melvin K. West Fine Arts Center auditorium. The selection is based on student, faculty, and staff nominations of faculty members whom they consider to be accomplished scholars and gifted instructors. A committee then considers the nominations and selects a speaker, who will present the following November.
“I was surprised and honored to have been selected,” says Bullock. “When I look at the list of previous faculty speakers, I am humbled and energized to consider the opportunity to share ideas with colleagues.”
Though he is currently undecided on a topic, Bullock is considering one “based on observations and research in social and political conflict.” He gained political experience as the communications director for a congressional campaign in 2006.
In 1995, Bullock was recognized for having one of the top four papers in political communications from the National Communication Association. In 2010, he was a Humanities Washington Inquiring Minds Lecturer and spoke about the story of “a central Washington coal community torn by a labor union dispute.”
Bullock received his bachelor’s degree with a major in journalism from WWU in 1976. He has a master’s degree in communication from Washington State University and a doctorate in communication from University of Arizona.
