Kathryn Mueller Speaks On Life In Thailand Oct. 26

Oct. 24, 2000

Dr. Kathryn Mueller, lecturer in the department of sociology and anthropology at Baylor University, will speak at 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26, in the Cowden Room on the third floor of the Bill Daniel Student Center, as part of the Council for International Education's "The Current Issues Lecture Series."

Her speech, "Thais That Bind: Examining Quality of Life in Thailand," will focus on such topics as geography, environmental concerns, climate, rural vs. urban populations, ethnic groups, religions and the quality of life. She also will examine the labor force, Thailand's natural resources and its export/import productivity. Mueller said she hopes that students will see Thailand as an emerging country with both economic and social importance in Southeast Asia.

A special foreign film series also is being held in conjunction with the lecture series. The next film to be shown is "Under the Domain Tree," at 4 p.m. on Oct. 25 in room 101 of the Castellaw Communications Center. The film and lecture are free and open to the public.

For more information on the lecture series, contact Dr. Christopher Marsh, assistant professor of political science, at 710-6058.
