Crowley’s lecture, “Reporting from all 50 states and from around the world,” will detail her career as a political broadcast journalist. As CNN’s award-winning chief political correspondent and anchor of State of the Union, Crowley covers a broad range of stories, including presidential, congressional and gubernatorial races and major legislative developments on Capitol Hill. She has covered the presidential campaigns of  George H.W. Bush, and son George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Bob Dole, Jesse Jackson, Edward Kennedy, John Kerry, and Barack Obama, among others. In addition, Crowley was selected by the Commission on Presidential Debates to moderate a 2012 general election debate between President Obama and Gov. Romney.

Bialik is most known for her roles as “Amy Farrah Fowler” on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory and the title character on NBC’s Blossom. In “The Big Bang Theory: Making Science Cool (& Funny),” Bialik uses her personal experience as a neuroscientist to explore her role on the show, adding humor and insight into the special relationship that exists between the actors and its audience. She will also address her research into the work of the brain, behavioral development and her life as an actress and scientist.
