On Tuesday, January 26, 2016, the T&T Guest Speaker Series brought T&T Alum Brian Blackburne (2008) to campus. Dr. Blackburn shared lunch with T&T students, faculty, and staff and discussed his experience with the hiring and tenure process. That evening, Dr. Blackburne conducted a lecture titled, “2 kewl 4 skool: Examining Students’ E-Mail Habits in a Socially Mediated Culture.” The lecture was attended by T&T students, alumni, faculty, and staff who enjoyed learning about the interactions between professors and students in e-mail correspondence collected between 2003 and 2013 from Dr. Blackburne’s students. Dr. Blackburne is currently an Associate Professor of Technical and Professional Communication at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas.
