McIntyre, director of Wittenberg's global studies program, will provide an historical overview of U.S. immigration policy as it relates to current immigration issues and reform proposals. There will be a question and answer period following her presentation.
McIntyre, who joined Wittenberg's faculty in 1995, holds bachelor's and master's degrees from The Pennsylvania State University and a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland. She teaches courses in Spanish language, culture and literature.
The Global Education Speakers Series is sponsored by the Global Education and Peace Network, and the Clark County Public Library. The theme of this year's series is "Think Globally, Act Locally."
The Global Education and Peace Network organized in response to Study Circles, which discussed reactions and responses to the events that took place on Sept. 11, 2001. The 12 programs in the 2007-08 series include issues of local and global importance, and give citizens an opportunity to consider their role in a democracy to build a better world.
Wittenberg professors, alumni or administrators are involved in five of the presentations in the 2007-08 series. Professor of Religion and Director of Urban Studies Warren Copeland, also Springfield's mayor, and Richele Shepard, class of 1996, were among four featured speakers in an Oct. 17 program titled "Revitalization: Bringing Springfield Into The Future Together." Stephen Feagins, team physician of Wittenberg's varsity athletics teams, was part of the Nov. 8 program titled "A Fall Symposium About Health Care."
The Jan. 10 program featuring McIntyre is the first of three in 2008 that solely feature a Wittenberg faculty member. Professor of Political Science and Director of East Asian Studies Bin Yu will make a presentation at a Feb. 14 program titled "The United States and China Into The 21st Century: Beyond Love And Hate." Professor of Biology and Chair of the Department Tim Lewis is featured in the April 10 program titled "What's Hot And What's Not: Global Warming."
