CIC Nipissing: The Trump Era: Barking up the Wrong Tree

The Canadian International Council (CIC) Nipissing District Branch in conjunction with the Nipissing University Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of History welcomes Dr. Gwynne Dyer on Friday March 24th, 2017 at 6pm in F213, Nipissing University Theatre. This keynote event is part of the Undergraduate Research Conference for 2017.
First Brexit, now Trump. Two of the world’s oldest democracies have made bizarre, self-harming political choices that astounded and dismayed the rest of the world (as well as half of their own voters.). Once could be a fluke, but twice in five months looks like a trend. Author Gwynne Dyer will answer that question in his keynote address on Friday March 24 in the Nipissing University Theatre starting at 6 pm. This event is free. Register early using the link below, seats are limited.
