Ziring to discuss Pakistan and terrorism
March 5, 2007
KALAMAZOO--Dr. Lawrence Ziring, Western Michigan University professor emeritus of political science, will present a lecture on "Pakistan, Islamic State or Secular Republic" from 2 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 14, in the Heinig Emeriti Lounge in Walwood Hall. The talk is open to the public free of charge.
Ziring will seek to explain how and why Pakistan became the seedbed for contemporary terrorism. He will trace the origins and evolution of Pakistan from a secular model with religious appeal to a secular experience gone wrong, leaving the religious appeal to define and shape the country's political destiny.
The presentation is part of the Wednesdays II series sponsored by the WMU Emeriti Council. The Heinig Emeriti Lounge is located on the second floor of Walwood Hall's west wing on WMU's Historic East Campus.
