Assistant Professor Ari Kissiloff of the Department of Strategic Communication presented a multimedia slideshow, “Referencing The Twilight Zone: Popular Media Pays Homage to Rod Serling” at the 50th Anniversary Rod Serling conference in October.
The presentation explored how “The Twilight Zone” has been referenced, mimicked, and satirized, in print, television, and film media – hundreds of times since the show first aired in 1959.
The Rod Serling Conference: Celebrating 50 Years of the Twilight Zone, a two-day conference sponsored by the Park School of Communications, will be held October 2 and 3.
While registrations are now being accepted for the two-day event -- which features presentations of academic papers, panel discussions, and screenings -- there will also be a number of events free and open to the campus and Ithaca community (first-come, first-served).
