Research Committee Meeting

 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Rm. E-135

         Phi Theta Kappa is not an honor society for the sake of being called an honor society. We must conduct research, and according to what we find, we create our events. This term, our Honor Study Topic is “The Democratization of Information: Power, Peril, and Promise" and the Issue we’ve chosen is language and communication. On Wednesday July 14th, we’ll be setting up 3 research groups; books and journals, media, and experts.
This is a meeting for both members and non-members. We encourage all students to participate in the research of our Honor Study Topic; it will culminate in an Honors in Action Project and a College Project which will directly affect the entire student body.

Here are a few questions to prepare you for the meeting and guide you in your research.
More questions are available in the
Issue 4: Language and Communication section of the Honor Study Topic Guide.
1) How and why has technology such as email and texting affected conversation arts, journaling, and formal letter writing and why does that have an impact?
2) To what extent has mass communications increased or decreased literacy in the world?
3) How has media affected language and culture around the world?
4) To what extent are the conventions of text messaging and tweeting altering spoken and written language?

Be sure to visit the official Phi Theta Kappa website by following the links above for more information on the Honor Study Topic and our Issue.

Looking forward to seeing you all!
Alpha Theta Phi
