The Center for International Studies is sponsoring the fifth annual Paul Garcia Lecture in International Studies at 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, in the Sinquefield Ball Room of DuBourg Hall at Saint Louis University. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Jack Luzkow, Ph.D. (history) and Ben Moore, Ph.D. (English) of Fontbonne University, this years speakers, have been instrumental in the formation of the Bosnian Memory Project, a student-faculty collaborative project with the local Bosnian community.
The Bosnia Memory Project at Fontbonne University is dedicated to establishing an enduring record of Bosnian genocide survivors, especially those living in metropolitan St. Louis. Fontbonne faculty, students and staff collaborate with members of St. Louis's Bosnian community to:
- Record interviews of Bosnian genocide survivors and their relatives;
- Collect books, letters, and photographs that reflect the culture and experiences of Bosnians;
- Host events that raise awareness about the experiences and identity of St. Louis's Bosnian population; and
- Develop academic and curricular programming that promotes understanding of Bosnia, Bosnians, and Bosnian-Americans.
