Visiting Fulbright Scholar
Professor of History, University of Newcastle, Australia
Tuesday, November 12, 2019
3:30 - 5:00PM
K-State Student Union, Room 207
Free and open to the public
This talk looks at two interrelated questions. First, why do homicide rates vary so dramatically from one country to another over time? And second, why have homicide rates remained relatively high in the United States in comparison to the rest of the Western world?
Join us Tuesday, November 12, from 3:30 - 5:00PM in the K-State Student Union, Room 207, to explore the answers to these questions.
