Wendy Hilton-Morrow (Communication Studies), along with Joy Hayes (University of Iowa), and Kathleen Battles (Oakland University), has signed a contract with Peter Lang to publish an edited collection to mark the 75th anniversary of the original War of the Worlds radio broadcast from 1938. Back Talk: Citizens, Communication and Crisis from the War of the Worlds to Social Media takes the notorious broadcast as its starting point as it investigates continuities and discontinuities between old and new media and their use by citizens in times of crisis.

Tom Mayer (History) was quoted (as an expert on Galileo) in the New York Times in an article by Henry Foundation dated September 8, 2011.
