Upcoming Lecture: "The Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Afrikaner Nationalism to Mandela"

The Department is surely busy with lectures right now. Along with the Phi Alpha Theta Faculty Lecture Series, Kevin Kraak, who served as a composer-in-residence last semester at UAH, will be delivering a lecture titled "The Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Afrikaner Nationalism to Mandela."

The lecture will be held this Friday, February 7, from 1:00 to 2:30 PM in Roberts Hall 419. As with our Faculty Lecture Series, this one is free and open to the public.

We hope to see you there! Feel free to bring a guest with you!
