OWU Brown Bag Forum Panelists Discuss Sept. 11 Aftermath

August 30, 2002

DELAWARE, OHIO -- "September 11: One Year Later" is the topic to be discussed at Ohio Wesleyan University's International Studies Brown Bag Forum at noon on Wednesday, Sept. 11, in OWU's Hamilton-Williams Campus Center Benes Room.

Building on previous panels held last year, the Forum panelists are OWU President Tom Courtice; Associate Professor, Politics and Government/Chair, OWU's International Studies Program, Sean Kay; OWU Assistant Professor of History, Michael Flamm; and Associate Professor, Politics and Government, and Director of OWU's Pre-Law Program, Michael Esler. They will address four specific issue areas, looking back over the last year and forward to the days to come. Courtice will talk about OWU's community response to the Sept. 11 tragedy. Kay will discuss the overall war on terrorism and its international consequences, including possibilities of an American campaign against Iraq. Esler will address the legal aspects of the war on terrorism with an emphasis on human rights and civil liberties, and Flamm will place the events of Sept. 11 and America's international and domestic response in a broader historical context.

This event, which is part of the agenda for this year's Sagan National Colloquium public affairs series, is sponsored by the International Studies Program and is part of its Brown Bag lunch series. It is open to the public and all are welcome to attend and bring lunch along. More information is available at http://snc.owu.edu/ or 740-368-3995.
