Conference News: Jeanne Hall Tribute at UDC 2012
The Union for Democratic Communications is organizing a lunchtime memorial for longtime UDC member Jeanne Hall, who tragically and unexpectedly passed away on December 23, 2011 in State College, PA. Jeanne was an Associate Professor in the Media Studies/Film-Video department of Penn State’s College of Communications for 20 years, and was co-organizer of UDC conferences at Penn State in 2002 and 2010. She was a passionate believer in the cause of social justice and a dear friend of many members of UDC. The memorial will take place during the conference’s Saturday lunch from 12:15 pm to 1:45 pm and will include a DVD slide show and a brief film tribute. Those present at the lunch are welcome to share their memories of Jeanne during the memorial.
