From Oregon Coast Community College
After the 2011 tsunami, why were environmental organizations not in the lead of mass protests within Japan, demanding an end to nuclear energy in the earthquake- and tsunami-prone nation? Dr. Nicholas Lougee will present his research findings, which are the first to examine political power structures in Japan and test their impact on the behavior of a large sample of environmental organizations. Lougee will give his lecture on Friday, October 10 at 7pm at the OCCC Central Campus at 400 SE College Drive, in Newport.
The Oregon Coast Community College Foundation is proud to announce the upcoming Williams Lecture Series, a free bi-annual community lecture created to enliven public discussion, especially on controversial issues. This year’s presentation will feature Nicholas Lougee, Ph.D., a professor and researcher at the University of Oregon. He will present his research of the effects of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan.
Wendy Williams created the Williams Lecture Series in 1993 in honor of her husband, William Appleman Williams, noted historian. Williams was known as the “Father of Revisionist History.” He taught American diplomatic history and foreign policy for over 30 years as OSU. His last teaching assignment was at OCCC, where he taught maritime history. Ms. Williams made a donation to the OCCC Foundation to create a fund for the lectures.
