Central Connecticut State University
New Britain, Connecticut

"American Nerd", Benjamin Nugent

Benjamin Nugent will speak on the American Nerd, a charming and disarmingly serious study of the history of the nerd in popular culture and throughout modern history. Nerd-dom is carefully observed and analyzed, with an eye for connections that lead to unusual places, plus more obvious nerd subjects like the rise of online gaming and the history of American science-fiction clubs. (modified from Amazon)

Copies of American Nerd will be available after the talk.
