Dirk Eitzen, PhD, is Professor of Film and Media at Franklin & Marshall College and author of Fooling with the Amish: Amish Mafia, Entertaining Fakery, and the Evolution of Reality TV.
Eitzen considers the case of Amish Mafia, a Discovery Channel reality show released in 2012, to examine why the public is so taken with reality shows, the potential dangers of this genre and how the ex-Amish participants became involved in the show.
Admission is complimentary. You may purchase Eitzen’s book, Fooling with the Amish at the event. The author will sign books after the presentation.
RSVP encouraged but not required.
