On November 11, 2013, I presented the Harron Family Endowed Chair Lecture entitled “Intercultural Dialogue: Who Needs It? Who Promotes It? Who Studies It?” This is the one public lecture expected of the Harron Chair at Villanova University, and this semester I serve in that position. College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Dean Jean Ann Linney provided a brief history of the Harron Family Endowed Chair for the audience, and Dr. Maurice Hall, Communication Department Chair, introduced me. There was a large crowd (more than expected, about 75 – sorry about the lack of chairs for the last dozen to come!) and good questions from not only faculty members but also students. Thanks to Chad Fahs for videotaping, and Minh Cao who set up a new YouTube channel for the Center (more about that in a separate post), you can see an excerpt of the talk (above).
