Dr. Austin and Professor Green will discuss the topic “The English Revolution: Politics and Economics.” Dr. Austin recently returned to the United States from London, where he and his wife, Claire, are part-time residents. He will describe the changes in the British government, the formation of a new alliance in Parliament, and the major proposals being presented to meet the economic downturn. Meanwhile Professor Green will bring perspective to those proposed changes by discussing the Conservative and Liberal traditions of British politics.
The President’s Colleagues of Dixie State College, founded 18 years ago by former DSC President Dr. Douglas Alder, is a group of retired professors and other professionals who live mostly in the St. George and Washington County area. Dr. Alder, who also started an Honors Program at DSC, organized the Colleagues as a way to increase academic activities on campus.
The Colleagues meet together once a month during the academic year to hear presentations from each other and/or invited guests. On Monday, February 7, 2011, fellow Colleague Boyd Nethercott will discuss the history of the Cuban Missile Crisis, which he witnessed from the inside in 1962.
