Richard Louv is a journalist and author of eight books about the connections between family, nature and community. His newest book, The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder, offers a new vision of the future in which our lives are as immersed in nature as they are in technology, resulting in better psychological, physical and spiritual health for people of all ages. His bestselling Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder has stimulated an international conversation about the relationship between children and nature.
He is scheduled to appear at noon on March 18 on Midday with Dan Rodricks on WYPR (88.1 FM), just before his appearance at Notre Dame, to talk about how we can all deal with nature-deficit disorder.

Women in Visual Media Lecture Series
Communication Arts and Digital Media Arts, in partnership with the Associated Women in Communications, would like to present the inaugural semester of our Women in Visual Media Lecture Series. The goal of this series is to expose students, faculty, and the Notre Dame community at large to local practitioners in the field of visual media, which includes gender and media studies, design and the graphic arts, video, animation, and photography. The women selected to participate will talk about their work, and share their experience and stories from working in their respective fields.
