About the Gorlin Lecture
Alice Conner Gorlin was an esteemed Professor of Economics at Oakland University from 1972 until her death in 1987. She gained international recognition as a scholar of the Soviet economy. Her dedication to the role of human beings as citizens of the world led Gorlin's friends to establish this memorial lecture series to promote understanding of international issues and events.
