St. Norbert College will host Martin Gilens (pronounced "GILL-ens") to speak at its Killeen Chair of Theology & Philosophy Lecture Series on Thursday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m. The lecture will take place in the Fort Howard Theater of the F. K. Bemis International Conference Center on the college campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Gilens is a professor of politics at Princeton University, where he has served on the faculty since 2003. As part of the 2016-17 Killeen Lecture Series, which will focus on economic justice in modern times, Gilens will lecture on "Economic Inequality and Political Power in America." Gilens received his B.A. in sociology and philosophy from the University of California, Santa Cruz and his Ph.D. in sociology from the University of California, Berkeley. He has been an assistant and associate professor of politics at Yale University; University of California; Los Angeles; and Princeton University.

Established in 1984, the Killeen Chair of Theology & Philosophy stresses the importance of theology and philosophy in a Catholic liberal arts education, highlighting the commitment of St. Norbert College to provide an education that is personally, intellectually and spiritually challenging. Named after Abbott Sylvester Michael Killeen, O.Praem., chancellor of the college from 1967 to 1970, the Killeen Chair provides a fuller understanding of theological and philosophical issues by bringing scholars to campus in fields ranging from biology and psychology to economics and political science.
