Author Talk this Thursday at 3:30 p.m.

Our first Author Talk of the semester will be this Thursday, February 21, at 3:30 p.m. in the library. Please join us to learn more about the film-making and writing of Dr. Steve McGuire.

Steve McGuire has created a film on the topic of Costa Rica: Sixty Years, No Army. Costa Rica abolished its military in 1948. The military has stayed abolished since then, despite several attacks based in northern neighbor Nicaragua. How can a country exist without an army? Dr. McGuire will show the film he made about the process and discuss the differences between writing a sociological article and making a sociological film about the same topic.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be available.
