Dr. Seon-Wook Kim, assistant professor and chair of the department of philosophy at Soongsil University in South Korea, will present a lecture on "North Korea: The Nuclear Crisis" at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, in room 116 of the Draper Academic Building on the Baylor University campus.

Because Kim is from South Korea he will bring a unique perspective to the issue of the nuclear crisis in relation to North Korea.

"I think this will be a great opportunity to hear more about the nuclear crisis," said Dr. Lizbeth Souza-Fuertes, director of Latin American Studies and coordinator of the Global Issues Lecture Series. "Here lies the importance of being exposed to different global issues, for we learn not only from the U.S. perspective, but also from scholars abroad."

Tuesday's lecture is free and open to the public and is part of the Global Issues Lecture Series, sponsored by Baylor's Center for International Education. The Center for International Education "seeks to encourage the growth of tolerance, understanding, respect and compassion" among students by creating a variety of international opportunities for Baylor students.
