OLLI 2018 Fall Kick Off
One of OLLI's recent Thursday Morning Lecture Series speakers, Kevin Deegan-Krause, Ph.D., is back! Professor Deegan-Krause has agreed to be the keynote speaker for our 2018-2019 OLLI Fall Kick Off event on September 5 at 10:00 a.m., hosted at WCC. Following the keynote there will be an opportunity to talk with OLLI staff and volunteers, to get information about and to register for OLLI's Fall 2018 lectures, study groups, day trips, and other events, and to learn more about volunteering for OLLI. Light refreshments will be provided. Deegan-Krause, a rising star in the Political Science Department at Wayne State University, wowed attendees with his lecture in the Populism series "The Future Lies East: Post communist Europe's New Model of Populism") in December of 2017. His Kick-Off presentation will be on "How to Talk Across the Political Divide", a topic of interest and relevance. Deegan-Krause is the recipient of the Truman and Fulbright Scholarships as well as IREX Individual Advanced Research Grants. He has served as a consultant for the U.S. Department of State on the politics of Central Europe. He is currently working on a new book with Tim Haughton of the University of Birmingham titled "The New Party Challenge: Cycles of Party Birth and Death in Europe and Beyond."
