In the news: UIndy’s ‘Hunger Games’ authority


The much-anticipated action-romance-social critique The Hunger Games is now showing at a theater near you, and that means a lot of phone calls for instructor George Dunn of UIndy’s Department of Philosophy & Religion.

Dunn, who teaches on the home campus as well as at UIndy’s partnership site at China’s Ningbo Institute of Technology, is co-editor of the new book The Hunger Games and Philosophy from publisher Wiley-Blackwell.

In addition to interviews last week with WIBC radio and California’s Sacramento Bee and Ventura County Star newspapers, Dunn has discussed the surprisingly weighty themes of the Hunger Games book trilogy this week with the Christian Science Monitor, KPCC public radio in southern California and Indy’s own WRTV-Channel 6.
