Multicultural Lecture Series to Cover State of Economy

January 12, 2009

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – The Multicultural Lecture Series, sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and the Multicultural Center, will begin its third semester of faculty lectures on Wednesday, Jan. 21. Michael Seeborg, Robert S. Eckley Distinguished Professor of Economics, will deliver an address titled “The Recession: Who Caused It and Who is Getting Hurt?”

Seeborg’s lecture, which will take place at 12 p.m. in the Davidson Room of the Memorial Center (104 E. University St.), is free and open to the public. 

The Multicultural Lecture Series seeks to address cross-cultural issues from various academic disciplines.  For the series, Illinois Wesleyan faculty are invited to “give a lecture related to an aspect of multiculturalism from the vantage point of their respective disciplines,” said Nicole Brown-Davis, director of the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs. 

“This is an opportunity for faculty to share their perspectives and research, connect with other students who may not take their classes and bring discussions of race, class, sexual orientation, gender and other topics outside of the classroom setting,” said Brown-Davis
