REED HISTORY PROFESSOR APPEARS ON WBEZ'S ODYSSEY PROGRAM
Jacqueline Dirks '82, associate professor of history and humanities, was a guest on WBEZ Chicago Public Radio's Odyssey program, a live national talk show, on May 24. She was one of three experts (along with Eric O. Clarke, University of Pittsburgh, and Bruce Caruthers, Northwestern University) who discussed the relationship between the citizen and the consumer.

Hosted by Gretchen Helfrich, the popular program has been produced by Chicago Public Radio since 1998 and had its national launch on November 1, 2001.
