 ‘THOSE FUZZY THINGS CALLED ‘RACES’’ TOPIC OF LECTURE AT SRU

             SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. –  Dr. Alondra Oubre, a medical anthropologist and author of “Instinct and Revelation,” will lecture on “The Fuzzy Things Called ‘Races’” at 4 p.m. April 6 in Spotts World Cultures Building Auditorium as part of her visit to Slippery Rock University.

          Trained in biological anthropology, cultural anthropology and social psychology, Oubre lectures on race relations, cross cultural cognition and the origins of human consciousness.

          Her lectures deal with such provocative topics as race, genes, intelligences and behavior, and she brings a perspective based not only on the hard sciences of biology, but also on the social and behavior sciences, the humanities and even spiritual insights.

          The free program is made available by a grant from the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity, the SRU Women’s Studies Program, SRU Women’s Consortium, and the SRU President’s Commission on Race and Ethnicity.
