Two Duquesne University faculty members will be keynote speakers at the sixth annual Urban Communication Conference Oct. 27-28 at Fogelman Executive Center. Dr. Ronald Arnett and Dr. Pat Arneson will address the theme "Civility and Community: Sustaining Hope and Relationships Through Dialogue."

Arnett and Arneson recently co-authored Dialogic Civility in a Cynical Age: Community, Hope and Interpersonal Relationships. Arnett is chair and professor of the affiliated departments of communication and English at Duquesne; Arneson is an associate professor of communication.

The keynote addresses on Friday will be followed by a panel discussion on civility and community. Panelists will include Rachel Shankman of Facing History and Ourselves, Virginia Stallworth of the Memphis Child Advocacy Center, Rev. Bill Adkins of Greater Imani Church, and Dr. Phyllis Betts and Dr. John Campbell of The University of Memphis. Saturday morning will be devoted to a forum on the public role and responsibility of communication intellectuals in a cynical era.
