NewsPress Release: 11/16/00Ugandan's Experiences at Marlboro is Topic of Faculty Forum Lecture
MARLBORO, VT - Daniel Lumonya, Marlboro College World Studies Fellow from Uganda, speaks on "My Experiences at Marlboro: In Theory and Practice" in the fourth of this semester's series of Faculty Forums. The forum is on November 29 at 4 p.m. in the Appletree building on the Marlboro campus. The Faculty Forum series has been organized to give Marlboro faculty an opportunity to share aspects of their work outside the classroom with other faculty members, students, staff, and members of the community
According to Lumonya, "I will talk about the peculiarities, from my perspective, of living and working at Marlboro, and how I have coped with those peculiarities." However, he will also discuss his home country of Uganda, and regional issues in that part of the world. "There is inadequate understanding by most people in America about the impact that their government has on third world development," Lumonya says.
As Marlboro's first World Studies Fellow, Lumonya comes to Marlboro from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda's capital, where he lectured in the department of social work and social administration. His field of expertise includes issues of development and democracy in Africa. In 1992, fresh out of college, Lumonya served as a research officer for the Constitutional Commission, helping to assess public opinion on Uganda's just-drafted democratic constitution.
All of the forums are free and open to the public. They will take place in the Appletree building, which is fully accessible. For more information, please call (802) 257-4333
