Four North Central College faculty serve as panelists in discussions about globalization

Oct 07, 2014

North Central College will present a panel discussion, featuring four North Central faculty members from different areas of study who will discuss the effects of globalization on their academic disciplines. The issue of globalization is a yearlong, campus-wide area of focus.

Free and open to the public, the panel begins at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7, in the College’s Harold and Eva White Activities Center, 325 E. Benton Ave.

Each faculty panelist will give a 15-minute presentation, illustrating how globalization has affected the way teaching is done in their disciplines. A student-faculty discussion will follow. The panelists include:

•    Sohinee Roy, assistant professor of English, representing English and the Division of Arts and Letters
•    William Muck, associate professor and chair of political science/sociology and anthropology and coordinator of global studies, representing political science and the Division of Human Thought and Behavior
•    Jonathan Visick, professor and chair of biology, representing biology and the Division of Science
•    Robert Moussetis, professor of international business, chair of management and marketing and coordinator of graduate business programs, representing business and the Division of Economics and Business

Jack Shindler, North Central professor of English and director of international programs, will moderate the discussion.

Each year, North Central College focuses on a particular global issue. Classes across the curriculum and co-curricular events are planned and devoted to that theme. This 2014-2015 academic year—the first of a three-year series—will focus on globalization as a “contested concept.”

This event is sponsored by North Central’s Office of International Programs. For more information call 630-637-5132.
