KC series, 'The Dialogues,' to conclude Nov. 28

MALTA – Kishwaukee College professors have lead thoughtful academic discussion over the semester in the regularly occurring series on campus, known as "The Dialogues".

Pernevlon Ellis, assistant professor of sociology, and Jennifer Jossendal, assistant professor of history, will conclude the series for the semester with "The Dialogues: Weapons of War" on Nov. 28, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the A1225 on campus. This event is free and open to the public.

The Dialogues series is held approximately once each month and allows for members of the community to join Kishwaukee College faculty, staff and students in thoughtful, civil discourse on topics relevant to the current events and issues facing the United States and its role in the world.

"The Dialogues: Weapons of War" will focus on technology and warfare. Airplanes, missiles, drones, tanks, computers, GPS and satellites are technology used in conflict today. This interactive discussion will explore how advancements in warfare influence American culture and politics. Cyber warfare, missile defense systems and terrorism will be among the themes addressed. Further discussion will address common military and defense goals across the global community. Students, faculty and community members are encouraged to discuss how these new technologies bring world communities closer, while also driving societies apart.

The Dialogues series occurs on the fourth Wednesday of the month and will resume for the spring semester on Jan. 23.
