Professor Bruce Fleming, English Department, United States Naval Academy, will lecture on “Teaching Globally, Thinking Locally” on Tuesday, November 14, 2006, in Gold Room A of the Oakland Center at 4:00 p.m. at Oakland University in Rochester. His lecture will combine academic experience, including his two years as a Fulbright Professor in Rwanda, his teaching at the U.S. Naval Academy in a liberal arts department, with an investigation of the current acrimonious political climate in the U.S.
The lecture is free and open to the public and will be followed by a question and answer session and a book signing. For more information contact Professor Kevin Grimm in the Oakland University Department of English (248-370-2250 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Professor Fleming is the author of Why Liberals and Conservatives Clash (2006), which offers an explanation for the “extreme polarization between liberals and conservatives that is the hallmark of the American political landscape today” (Routledge Publishing). In addition to his work on politics, he has written and taught on literary modernism, academia, art, Islamic literature, AIDS in Africa, and Western views of Africa and India. He is the author of twelve books as well as essays on a wide range of topics, including action films, cross-cultural fictions, sexual ethics, science and the self, and philosophical problems of literary theory in the twentieth century.
