David S. Silverman (B.A. in English, Florida State University, 1992; M.A. in English Studies from Illinois State University, 1994; Ph.D. in Communications from the University of Missouri, 2004). Following a six-year career as a technical writer in Denver, Colorado, working for various software and telecommunication companies--including a journey to Antarctica, he left the professional arena to work on a doctorate in communication. Dr. Silverman joined the faculty at Xavier University in New Orleans the fall of 2004 until Hurricane Katrina forced his family to evacuate. Immediately following their evacuation to Colorado, Dr. Silverman and his wife Olga rejoiced in the birth of their first child, Stephanie. Dr. Silverman’s first book, on the history of corporate censorship of television in the United States, was published in October of 2007 through the Syracuse University Press.
