'Speaking Up and Talking Back' is the outcome of a research project entitled 'People Speaking Back? Media, Empowerment and Democracy in East Africa,' which focused initially on Kenya and Tanzania, writes UNL's David Moshman.
President Obama's varying view on humanitarian intervention is in keeping with over 20 years of inconsistent American policy on the issue, writes UNL's Courtney Hillebrecht for CNN.
Think University of Nebraska and you think Cornhuskers, football, a sea of red on Saturday afternoons. Think again. Think of Lincoln's Haydon Art Club of 1888 and the university's larger collection from 1929: That's where the Sheldon began.
Talk of the Nation was so interested in fermentation they thought they'd offer some help in trying your hand at fermentation. What better first project than pickles, homemade fermented pickles? So Flora Lichtman found a fermentation guru -- Bob Hutkins at UNL.
Letters are often a dashed-off, informal means of communication, UNL professor Andrew Jewell says, but Willa Cather sprinkled powerful and beautiful phrases throughout hers. "And you realize that this wonderful writer left wonderful words in her letters to all sorts of friends and family, and it's a joy to read them."

Jack Hoffman, the Nebraska boy who captured national attention after running a ceremonial 69-yard touchdown during a University of Nebraska spring football game earlier this month, visited the White House today.
A self-made American artist and feminist pioneer, Willa Cather traveled a far greater distance -- from tiny Red Cloud to Manhattan -- than Fitzgerald did when he made the leap from middle-class St. Paul to Princeton. These letters bring her fuzzy image into much sharper focus, and for that we owe UNL Andrew Jewell and fellow scholar Janis Stout a debt of gratitude, and Willa Cather a sincere apology.
