On Thursday January 23, 2020, the Whiteside Forum will host Dr. Norm Moline, Augustana Professor of Geography, emeritus, who will speak to “China and the U.S.: Understanding China through a Comparative Lens.” This event will be held in the Program Room of the Odell Public Library, 307 S. Madison St. Morrison, IL starting at 6:30pm and will include time for a question and answer session.
This is your opportunity to better understand common misconceptions we have about the Chinese and what they might think of us. Professor Moline began Augustana’s Overseas Term in 1974 and was a co-director of the program for 36 years. He was the first to bring students from an American University into post-Mao era China and he has visited the country 40 times between 1977 and 2019.
All Whiteside Forum events are free and open to the public due to the generosity of many. We continue to invite guest speakers and civil discourse with the idea that an informed electorate is essential to a functioning democracy.
