Tuesday, January 29, 2013

The Arts and Sciences Brown Bag Series continues to look at “A Global Perspective” this spring with four new informal lunchtime presentations by SUNY Fredonia faculty members.

The series begins on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, with “Observations of Healthcare Systems from a National and International Perspective.” Presenters include Ted Lee, Ph.D., biology; John Staples, Ph.D., history; Shazad Mohammed, Ph.D., business; and David Kinkela, Ph.D., history, who will moderate the panel.

Subsequent presentations will include “Facets of Language and International Education” on March 6; “Student Perspectives on International Education” on April 3; and, a keynote by Ambassador James Foley, who served as the U.S. ambassador to Haiti and Croatia, on May 1. All presentations take place between noon and 1:30 p.m. in the Williams Center Room S204.

Each presentation is followed by a discussion and refreshments. Students are invited to remain for Brown Bag Desserts, an informal conversation over dessert with the featured speakers. The talks are free and open to all campus and community members. Classes are welcome.

This year’s series is directed by Teodora Cox, mathematical sciences; Jack Croxton, psychology; Natalie Gerber, English; Laura Johnson, communication; and, Theodore Lee, biology.
