Speaker to Discuss Ireland and European Economy Oct. 22Oct. 20, 1998
Janet Adamski, assistant professor of political science and assistant director of the International Studies Program, will speak at 4 p.m. Thursday as part of the Council for International Education program, "All the News That's Fit to Discuss!"
Adamski's speech is titled "Celtic Tiger or German Lap Dog: Ireland and the European Economy." She spent this past summer in Ireland at the University of Limerick studying the Irish economy and its place in the European Union. The question of Germany running the European Union is at the heart of Adamski's speech. She says that usually just big countries, such as France, United Kingdom and Germany, are considered in the topic of the European Union, but that her speech addresses Ireland's involvement.
Adamski said she has been researching the European Union for about 10 years, and she is excited to discuss what she observed about it last summer in Ireland.
A special foreign film series is also being held in conjunction with the lecture series. The next film to be shown is "Burnt By The Sun" at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27, in Bennett Auditorium. The film and lecture are free and open to the public.
