RANA AND KATIE’S READING GROUP
Sunday, April 24th, 3:00-4:00pm, Smith-Steeb 163
Did you enjoy scholarly discussions on concepts in international affairs as well as relevant current events? Then, you will love our reading group! Join past TA’s Rana Khalil and Katie Brokenshire discuss theoretical perspectives on why inequality exists and why it persists through economic, social/political, and environmental arenas. We will then relate these ideas to relevant topics in the news such as the Flint water crisis on a domestic scale and then expand them to issues on a global scale such as the privatization of public water systems throughout Latin America. Reading groups will be held once a month; attendance for all three reading groups is highly recommended (Feb, Mar, April).
