Campus professor contributes to PBS program

Posted Jan. 4, 2012

Dr David Perusek

Dr. David Perusek, associate professor of anthropology at Kent State University at Ashtabula, will be a regular contributor on the Western Reserve PBS program NEOtropolis beginning this month. Perusek will share his thoughts regarding the various ways that people work, learn, live and play in our region.

NEOtropolis is a weekly half-hour program airing on the WNEO/WEAO PBS stations and is focused on helping Northeast Ohioans make sense of the forces of change that impact their lives. WNEO/WEAO cover the Akron/Canton/Youngstown markets.

Perusek will contribute to a section called Culture Mark, a segment that tries to answer two questions. What's making its mark on northeast Ohio culture? What is shaping, impacting and illuminating the way we live and the stories we tell?

During this segment, Perusek and the host will look at how people are working, learning, living and playing in the region, expressed in business, art, politics and many of the arenas where we live our lives.

NEOtropolis returns for its third season on PBS with an expansive content scope focused on methods of assisting Northeast Ohioans as we attempt to understand and cope with the changes that impact our lives.  The program will air live on Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. beginning January 10, 2012, and will also stream live at and on the facebook fan page.
