Verdery to speak at Millsaps

The Millsaps College chapter of Phi Beta Kappa will offer a free lecture with visiting scholar Katherine Verderyat 8 p.m. on Oct. 27 in Room 100 of Olin Hall.

Verdery, the Eric R. Wolf Collegiate Professor and acting chair of anthropology at the University of Michigan, studies the workings of socialism and its transformations after 1989.

Verdery will also take part in a brown bag luncheon discussion at 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 28 in Room 111 of Murrah Hall. The discussion will involve themes from the lecture and will also pose the question, "Why didn't we predict the fall of Communism?"
