Hammer Forum

Sudan: The Next Killing Fields?

Thursday Mar 31, 2011 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM This is a past program

As a new nation is formed from the division of Sudan, Africa’s largest country, will the oil-rich South and the diminished North resume hostilities or coexist peacefully? Scholars Amal Hassan Fadlalla, Lako Tongun, and Sondra Hale join us to assess the future of Southern Sudan. Professor of African Studies and Women’s Studies at the University of Michigan, Fadlalla is currently working on health and development issues in her native Sudan. Hale is professor of Anthropology at UCLA and has studied Sudan for the last five decades. Tongun is a professor of International and Intercultural Studies and Political Studies at Pitzer College.

This ongoing series of timely, thought-provoking events addresses current social and political issues.
Hammer Forum is moderated by Ian Masters, journalist, author, screenwriter, documentary filmmaker, and host of the radio programs Background Briefing, Sundays at 11AM, and The Daily Briefing, Monday through Thursday at 5PM, on KPFK 90.7 FM.
