HUMANITIES DIVISION HOSTS FORUM ON IRAQ

 

Union College’s Division of Humanities is hosting an open forum, “Are You Between Iraq and a Hard Place?” This discussion on the possible U. S. attack on Iraq will take place on Thursday, Mar. 6, 7 p.m., in the basement of the Everett Dick Administration Building on the Union College campus, 3800 South 48th Street. Participants will have the opportunity to build awareness, listen and thoughtfully respond to the best points on both sides.

            Chris Blake, English and communication professor at Union, will be moderating the event. “Too often our country’s dialogue degenerates into irrational rancor. This forum is an excellent way to educate with civility and gain a better understanding of current issues with Iraq,” Blake said.
