Dr. Román de la Campa, Edwin B. and Lenore R. Williams Professor of Romance Languages  at the University of Pennsylvania, will present the free lecture, “Is Globalization a Promise or a Threat?” on Wednesday, September 26.  Dr. de la Campa will attempt to periodize globalization and discuss it as an epochal concept that charts both promises and threats, often at once.  It will also trace its impact on our understanding of the nation, particularly through philosophy and literature.

This event begins at 4:30 p.m. in the Law School, Room E108.  This event is sponsored by the Exploring Interdisciplinary Global Studies Project.  Questions may be directed to Dr. Carla Giaudrone, Associate Professor of Spanish.
