Dr. Katherine Mueller to Speak on Hong Kong Feb. 26Feb. 25, 1998
Dr. Katherine Mueller, lecturer in sociology at Baylor University, will speak at 4 p.m. Thursday in Room 201 of the W.R. Poage Legislative Library Center, as part of the Council for International Education's series, "All the News That's Fit to Discuss!"
Her speech is titled, "Hong Kong: The Big Party and the Long Time After." The lecture will be Mueller's personal and professional reflections on her visit to Hong Kong during its changeover ceremony last year. "A concern I have is that the People's Republic of China continues to honor the declaration establishing Hong Kong as a Special Administrative Region," said Mueller. "It is important for the entire world to maintain a vigilance to help continue public opinion that will require China to honor the joint declaration."
A special foreign film series is also being held in conjunction with the lecture series. The next film to be shown is "Closely Watched Trains," at 7 p.m Friday in Room 101 of the Castellaw Communications Center. The film and lecture are free and open to the public.
