August 30, 2019 – This fall, the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library will explore world conflict in its free Fall Lecture Series “Hotspots of the World”. Through a series of four evening events, local experts will discuss some of the world’s most troubled areas to better understand today’s issues through the lens of historical background and context.

The series kicks off on Thursday, September 26 at 7 p.m. with Saginaw Valley State University Associate Professor of History Dr. Byungil Ahn and a presentation on conflict in North Korea. Since the Korean War nearly 70 years ago, the Korean peninsula has had the potential to create global destabilization. With its complex relationship with both China and Russia, North Korea is often at odds with its neighbors and the United States. Dr. Ahn will help us to understand the enigma that is North Korea and how the current hostility has affected peace in that area of the world.

Future lecture topics in the series will include Ukraine on October 24; Syria on November 14; and Venezuela on December 5.

All events in the Fall Lecture Series are free and open to the public and are held in the Auditorium of the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library.

For more information about this and other events, call the Reference Desk at 989-837-3449 or visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/library. The Grace A. Dow Memorial Library is located at 1710 W. St. Andrews Rd and is a service of the City of Midland.
