Everything Is Broken playlist for 11/20/2012

Our featured guest is Mark Rice. Mark is Professor and Chair of American Studies at St. John Fisher College in Rochester where he specializes in the history of photography, twentieth-century American culture, and transnational American Studies.

Mark and I will discuss his blog “Ranking America” – a treasure trove of information on how the USA matches up to other nations on a vast variety of topics. He is the author of Through the Lens of the City: NEA Photography Surveys of the 1970s and several scholarly articles. If time permits we will hear a bit about his most recent work on the USA colonial regime in the Philipines.

Mark Rice has been a contributor to Forbes magazine and to Newsweek International and increasingly The Huffington Post.
