Yesiltas to Deliver “Great Decisions” Lecture

From St. Norbert College, March 16, 2016
by Erich Wegenke, erich.wegenke@snc.edu, 920-403-3089

Ozum Yesiltas, visiting assistant professor of political science at St. Norbert College, will present a lecture titled "The Future of Kurdistan" on Wednesday, March 30, as part of the Great Decisions lecture series. 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. Yesiltas will discuss the increasingly significant role that the region of Kurdistan plays in the Middle East, in light of the many recent political and social upheavals in the Arab world.

Yesiltas' lecture is the sixth installment in the 2016 Great Decisions series, an annual 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 only two institutions of higher learning in Wisconsin that offers the entire series. Great Decisions is sponsored by the St. Norbert College Center for International Education.

Admission to the lecture is $5 for community members; cash and checks are accepted at the door. There is no charge to attend the lectures for students, faculty and staff from any educational institution who present an ID upon entry.
