CCM Professors Share Thoughts on Pair of Television Shows

Charles Selengut and James Howard to Appear on CEC Programming - Posted 7/1/13
Two County College of Morris (CCM) professors will appear on a pair of Caucus Educational Corporation (CEC) television shows airing this month on which they share their expertise with the hosts and broadcast audience.

Dr. Charles Selengut, professor of sociology at CCM, discusses religious violence and terrorism on One-on-One with Steve Adubato while James Howard, assistant professor of design and visual arts project leader at CCM, appears on Life & Living with Joanna Gagis speaking about his program and how society’s needs drive industrial design.

An internationally recognized expert on terrorism, religion and political violence, Selengut is the author of Sacred Fury: Understanding Religious Violence. During his discussion with Adubato, Selengut shares his thoughts on how religious violence is facilitated by larger groups and is not just the act of specific individuals. He also discusses the misconceptions he believes Western media and academia have on the subject.

Howard, who owned his own industrial design company working with such clients as Johnson & Johnson and Kraft General Foods, touches on the custom-designed biofeedback system he created as an MFA thesis project to help children with cerebral palsy develop head control. He also talks about his restaurant, the Cosy Cupboard Tea Room in Convent Station, where he hosts the final exam for his design history students. Dressed in costume, the students attend tea and make their presentations in the fashion worn during the decade they select.

Selengut’s appearance will be broadcast on two separate stations in July, airing on the following dates and times:

  • Tuesday, July 9, on NJTV at 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 10, on Thirteen/WNET at 12:30 a.m.

Howard’s appearance will be broadcast on Saturday, July 13, at 2:30 p.m. on NJTV.

CEC is a non-profit educational television production company that produces multiple series airing on a variety of channels.
