“Conflict and Cruelty” Panel Discussion tonight

HANCOCK, MI –Finlandia University will host a panel discussion, titled “Conflict and Cruelty,” on Tuesday, March 19, at 4:15 p.m., at the Finlandia University Chapel of St Matthew, Hancock.

The panel discussion is part of the university’s spring 2013 author series and is presented in conjunction with the Finlandia course, Write on the Edge (ENG 203).

Mark Lounibos, assistant professor of English at Finlandia University, will moderate the panel discussion.

Lounibos says that each of four panelists will briefly examine a historical incident of oppression, injustice, persecution, and violence from across the globe, followed by an opportunity for audience discussion.

“The presentations by these scholars of history and literature will consider not only the historical records, but how these incidents have been interpreted and received,” Lounibos notes.

The panelists are Paul Schue, associate professor of history at Northland College; Bill Knoblauch, assistant professor of history at Finlandia University; Bob Johnson, professor of rhetoric, composition and technical communications at Michigan Technological University; and Lauri Anderson, professor of English at Finlandia University.
