Speaking of Hot Spots

  • September 20, 2012

Before a near-standing-room-only audience in Howell Board Room, noted author and scholar Dr. Julius Coles, a Visiting Woodrow Wilson Fellow and Director of the Andrew Young Center for International Affairs at Morehouse College, spoke about the challenges before emerging nations in his lecture, “Africa in the 21st Century,” the first Hot Spots lecture of the year, sponsored by the International Studies Institute.

Dr. Coles spoke about the effects of governmental upheaval, debt, the economy, disease and health care and the changing landscape of the socio-economic structure as more Africans move from rural to urban areas, among other factors. An audience of faculty and students were in attendance for the mid-day presentation.

Hot Spots is a lecture series that brings noted speakers to the University of La Verne to speak on a variety of topics.
