The drug wars: views from the south and the north

A series of four lectures, commencing this week, will focus on the drug wars in the U.S. and south of the border.

“The topic of drug policy generates substantial debate, and this debate can be quite heated,” said Mary Fran Malone, associate professor of political science.

This interplay of ideas is central to the Saul O Sidore Memorial Lecture Series, of which these lectures are a part. The annual series, sponsored by the UNH Center for the Humanities, examines the critical and sometimes controversial issues facing our society.

Professor Jon Hurwitz of the University of Pittsburgh begins the series this Thursday, September 27, with an examination of the consequences of the U.S. “War against Drugs.”  4 p.m., MUB Theatre II.

Free and open to the public.
