Mick Foley, a star of the WWE wrestling league, will be speaking at MIT on Thursday, April 12th at 5:00. Location: Building 54, Room 100. Foley's event is called "The Real World's Faker than Wrestling: Former WWE Champion and Best-Selling Author Mick Foley" and he'll be appearing as part of the Comparative Media Studies Dept. led by Henry Jenkins.
There's also a class on the significance of wrestling in media and culture this term at MIT. (Its gotten an amused article from the Globe which seems like one of the burdens of being in cultural or media studies; wait until the soap opera seminar)
