Planning ahead: Global Affairs speakers for the season

Sunday, October 11, 2015

Welcome to another year of public affairs programs at the Global Affairs Center of Shoreline Community College!

We begin the year with two hot topics:  Cuba and Human Rights.

Next week we will be discussing daily life in Cuba with Tim Payne, who teaches Economics at Shoreline, and Tod O’Driscoll, a free-lance photographer who lives in Edmonds. The event takes place on October 14, at 11:30am, on the Shoreline Community College campus (Room 9208 in the PUB). Attendance is open to the public and FREE.

At a time when human rights violations seem to be occurring with greater frequency, what better topic to begin our Fall Quarter evening discussions? Please join us for a talk by UW Philosophy Professor, Bill Talbott, How to Believe in Universal Human Rights, on October 22, 7:00 pm, (Room 9208 in the PUB). Attendance is open to the public and FREE. And parking anywhere on campus in the evening is also FREE.
