    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Peace and Justice Lecture Series

This week, there are a couple interesting events happening on campus, both part of the Alworth Center for the Study of Peace and Justice lecture series and organized by The College of St. Scholastica. The mission of the lecture series is that it “seeks to bridge social and political barriers to bring together people of all ages and philosophies to work toward the common goals of peace and justice”. I have been to several of these lectures and have enjoyed learning about subjects and topics from different perspectives shared by prominent thinkers and influential people. The lectures often invite a large gathering and the key organizer, Dr. Tom Morgan was even featured by the Duluth News Tribune: http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/education/4503456-st-scholastica-professor-promotes-peace

Lined up this week we have:
1. Phyllis Bennis will speak on Tuesday (23 Oct.) on the situation facing Palestinians today as well as on the history of U.S. policy in the Middle East.  Mitchell Auditorium, 7:30 p.m.
2. Then, on Wednesday (24 Oct.) we will hear from Dominique Najjar, a Palestinian-American with close ties in the region.  He’ll talk about daily life in Palestine.  Somers Lounge, 7 p.m.
