Steven A. Beebe (PhD, University of Missouri) is Regents’ and University Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Communication Studies at Texas State University. He served as chair of his department at Texas State for 28 years and, concurrently, as associate dean of the College of Fine Arts and Communication for 25 years. Steve has given lectures and conference presentations throughout Europe, Asia, and Central America, and has made 15 visits to Russia where he helped to establish that nation’s first communication studies programs.
While conducting research at Oxford University, he made international headlines by identifying a manuscript written by C.S. Lewis that was the partial opening chapter of a book, Language and Human Nature, that was to be co-authored with J.R.R. Tolkien. In 2016, he discovered an unknown poem by Lewis. He will be the Communication Studies guest speaker to present on C.S. Lewis. Everyone is invited to see Dr. Beebe’s presentation at EWU.
