Landmines in Cambodia

Mr. Tony Hauser will speak about his exhibit -- currently in the Maxwell Library, 3rd floor -- of photographs documenting landmines in Cambodia. The Geography Department and Global Education Center are co-sponsoring the panel discussion, which will be Wednesday, September 15 at 4:00 p.m. in the Library Lecture Hall.

Mr. Hauser will also be speaking in Dr. Hayes-Bohanan's Geography of Latin America class on Thursday, September 16. That class is at 9:30-10:45 in Science 128. Visitors -- particularly geography students who aer not available Wednesday evening -- are welcome to attend.

Landmines affect millions of people worldwide, and our department is begining to be involved, particularly with victims in coffee-growing areas. The department's January 2010 study tour in Nicaragua will include visits to development projects run by and for landmine victims.
