About

The Week Without the Web will take place from Monday April 4, 2011 to Friday April 8, 2011.

Week Without the Web began as the brainchild of Dr. Evan Cornog, Dean of Hofstra University’s School of Communication. It provides students and faculty with the opportunity to analyze the Internet’s place in both society as a whole and their personal lives in an academic environment.

After gaining the support of his fellow colleagues and interest from students, the WWW campaign has gained full momentum.

The week’s events are designed to target those students and faculty members in the School of Communication. However, all other Hofstra students and faculty are welcome to participate!

The purpose of the Week Without the Web initiative is to give students and faculty the opportunity to explore and discuss the effects of the Internet on their everyday lives.
Some events to look forward to during the Week Without the Web:

*Keynote speaker Michael Hawley of MIT’s Media Lab
*Performances by “LuLu the Newsboy” and more
*Movie and documentary screenings
*A “back in the day” party with classic TV shows and Nintendo 64
*A chance to win the iPad2 or your very own domain name!
