Religion and culture specialist William D. Romanowski, author of the award-winning Eyes Wide Open: Looking for God in Popular Culture, will speak at Samford University Oct. 5-7.
He will speak in Reid Chapel at 10 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday and at 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday in Brock Forum, located in Dwight Beeson Hall. The public is invited.
Romanowski teaches film, communication and culture studies at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Mich. He is also the author of Pop Culture Wars: Religion and the Role of Entertainment in American Life, which was acclaimed as "a stunning portrait of the interplay of religion and popular culture."
His three-part video series based on Eyes Wide Open was the 2002 Aegis Award winner.
Romanowski's visit is presented as this year's Dotson M. Nelson lecture series, which honors the late longtime pastor of Mountain Brook Baptist Church.
He will also lecture in journalism and mass communication classes during his Samford visit.
