Global climate change + more at Brown

Lots of activity at Bruno Uno tomorrow:

-- Global Climate Change

Brown's Political Theory Project presents the Janus Forum Lecture “Global Climate Change: The End of the World as We Know It?” at 3 p.m in Alumnae Hall, 194 Meeting St. The speakers are Bjorn Lomborg of Copenhagen Business School, author of The Skeptical Environmentalist; Robert Mendelsohn of Yale University, author of The Impact of Climate Change on the United States Economy; and Michael Shellenberger of the Breakthrough Institute. After a 15-minute presentation, each speaker will engage the audience in a Q&A (though not a debate).

-- Deconstructing Sport: The Intersection of Sport and Human Rights

Is the right to play sports as inalienable a right as freedom of expression and the entitlement to a fair standard of living? This two-day series of film screenings, lectures, and panel discussions will explore the role of sport in society from a diverse range of perspectives: education, sociology, economics, public health and medicine, and public policy. Sponsored by the Roosevelt Institution and the Royce Fellowship for Sport and Society, events are free and open to the public. A full schedule is available online.

-- Norman G. Finkelstein

The Brown University Arab Club welcomes Norman G. Finkelstein, scholar of the Israel-Palestine conflict and the politics of anti-Semitism and the author of such works as “Beyond Chutzpah” and “The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering.” An extensive Q&A will follow Finkelstein's lecture, which is at 7 p.m. in List Art Building, room 120, 64 College St.
