Yale historian to discuss economic security on Feb. 1
Yale history professor and labor historian Jennifer Klein will visit Oakland University Monday, Feb. 1, to share her insight and expertise in a lecture titled “The Politics of Economic Security.”
Sponsored by Oakland’s Sociology Club and Department of Sociology and Anthropology, the talk will address national topics, including healthcare, Wall Street and the War on Terror.
“The Sociology Club promotes events that inform and inspire much-needed dialogue about social issues,” said Amie Lipscomb, club vice president. “Professor Klein's perspective as a historian will point to facts when trying to address America's most pressing question, ‘Are We Secure?’ We are excited to give the OU community this unique opportunity."
A student lunch and question and answer session will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Oakland Room to be followed by the lecture and reception from 3-5:30 p.m. in Oakland Center Banquet Room A.
The lecture and luncheon are co-sponsored by the Oakland departments of history, political science, communications and journalism, the Women and Gender Studies Program, Social Work Program, Decision and Information Sciences Program, along with the Anthropology Club, Philosophy Club, Social Work Club, Student Chapter of Human Resource Management and Pre-Law fraternity Phi Alpha Delta.
Both events are free and open to the OU community. For more information, contact Graham Cassano at (248) 370-2433 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
