Monday, November 12, 2007
CANTON, Mo. –Two Culver-Stockton professors and a former C-SC professor will be some of the “featured performers” for the next Quincy Symphony Orchestra Association production, but they won’t be playing an instrument.
As part of its November 17 concert entitled “American Journey Family Concert,” the symphony association has planned lectures and a panel discussion about the issue of immigration and the American heritage.
Dr. Patrick Hotle, Culver-Stockton associate professor of History and the John A. Sperry, Jr., Endowed Chair of Humanities professor, will facilitation a panel discussion entitled “American Immigration in Comparative Perspective” at 1:15 p.m. Saturday, November 17 at Quincy Junior High School’s Morrison Theatre. Panelists will be Dr. Scott Giltner, C-SC assistant professor of history; Dr. Paul Fessler, former C-SC professor of history and currently professor of history, Dordt College; and Dr. Julia Albarracin, assistant professor of political science, Western Illinois University. The group will bring an historical context to current debates about immigration.
Dr. Fessler also will examine this nation’s love-hate relationship with immigration since the early 1800s in his presentation: “Melting Pot or Exploding Kettle? The Forgotten History of American Immigration” at 7 p.m., Friday, November 16 at Quincy Unitarian Church, 1479 Hampshire.
A second lecture commenting on music selected for the concert will be presented by Dr. Bruce Briney, conductor, at 2:20 p.m. Saturday, November 17 at Quincy Junior High School’s Morrison Theatre. The concert will follow at 3 p.m.
