Buechler to Deliver “Great Decisions” Lecture

From St. Norbert College, March 18, 2015
by Erich Wegenke, erich.wegenke@snc.edu, 920-403-3089

Simone Buechler, assistant professor of Latin American and Latino studies at the University of Illinois-Chicago, will give a lecture titled "Brazil's Metamorphosis" on Wednesday, April 1, as part of the Great Decisions lecture series. Buechler will discuss Brazil's renaissance following its economic troubles in the 1990s, including its work on global issues from climate change to peacekeeping and its hosting the 2016 Olympics. Buechler will also discuss the problems that continue to hold Brazil back, including divisions over how to handle income inequality, weak civic institutions and poor regional leadership.

The lecture will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Fort Howard Theater of the F. K. Bemis International Center on the St. Norbert College campus. General admission is $5 at the door.

Buechler's lecture is the fifth installment in the 2015 Great Decisions series, a nationwide program meant to bring together local, regional and national experts to discuss various issues of international interest. The eight-part lecture series is presented on Wednesdays starting in February and running through April. St. Norbert College is one of three institutions of higher learning in Wisconsin that offers the entire series. Great Decisions is sponsored by the St. Norbert College Center for International Education (CIE).
