Guest Speaker Dr. Stanley Fish

5:00 - 7:00 pm - Wick Center: Alumni Lounge

Stanley Fish is the Davidson-Kahn Distinguished University Professor and Professor of Law at Florida International University and a regular columnist for the New York Times. A provocative speaker and intellectual, he is considered one of the century’s most original and influential literary theorists and public intellectuals. Fish has thrilled and enraged audiences with his rapier wit and his controversial perspectives on culture, language, and the law. His work is especially influential because he writes not to a narrow group of scholars but to educated readers in general, enabling him to reach a vast audience.

Please RSVP by September 22, 2014 to speaker@daemen.edu.

Veteran's Event Speaker

2:00 - 3:30 pm - Wick Center: Wick Social Room

Join Linda M. Janelli, RN, BC, EdD. LtCol, (Retired), USAF, NC for a presentation: Operation Homecoming to Desert Storm – Through the Eyes of a Flight Nurse
Time sometimes stands still, sometimes it flies, and in any case it is difficult to appreciate that Operation Homecoming returning our POWs from Vietnam took place 41 years ago. Desert Storm was 23 years ago. Yes, a different war, a different country, but as some things changed, some things remained the same. This is a personal account as seen through the lenses of an Air Force Flight Nurse. You’re invited on this retrospective journey.

This event is free and open to the public. Join us at 2:00pm on Tuesday, October 14 on the Daemen campus in the Wick Campus Center, Social Room.
