The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley’s monthly Scholars Series continues this coming Monday, March 15, when guest lecturer Dr. Khalil Dokhanchi presents, “Genocide Prevention,” from noon to 1:00 p.m. in the Baehman Theatre, located in the campus’ new Communication Arts Center.

Dokhanchi is a professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. He is one of just 20 individuals nationwide chosen to receive the Carl Wilkens Fellowship from the Genocide Intervention Network, a non-partisan organization working to create a national following of educated and empowered Americans “who will hold elected officials responsible for their actions to prevent and stop genocide.”

The Wilkens Fellowship “trains emerging leaders to organize grassroots anti-genocide constituencies in their communities.”

“I want to promote this issue so people have access to information, and to energize people to contract their elected representatives as events arise to make sure the voice of the people is heard,” Dokhanchi said.

The “Genocide Prevention” lecture is free and open to the public, with unreserved seating. For more information about the program, contact Dave Hager, director of University Relations, at 920-832-2611, visit david.hager@uwc.edu, or visit www.uwfox.uwc.edu.
