India is subject of next International Luncheon

02/20/2013
Political science professor Farhat Haq and Chase Mowery, a junior from Fairbury, will be featured at the next International Luncheon on Feb. 28 at noon in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room of Stockdale Center.
 
Titled “Tourism, Technology and Terrorism: India in the Age of Globalization,” their talk is free and open to the public. A buffet lunch, featuring international foods, is available. A meal ticket may be purchased at the luncheon for $7.50, but reservations must be made five days in advance by calling 309-457-2149.
 
Haq was the faculty coordinator last fall for an India Studies program, sponsored by the Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM). Mowery was a participant in the program, studying in Pune. Monkey bits, wild dogs, Bollywood and learning to eat with one’s hands were just some of the many adventures that he and his fellow ACM students faced in their memorable off-campus experience.
