In collaboration with the Multnomah County Library's annual Everybody Reads event, the Portland Center for Public Humanities at PSU is excited to bring Daniel Hoffman, University of Washington anthropology professor and scholar on West African culture and politics.
He will present a lecture entitled:
Like Beasts in the Bush: Youth Violence and the War in Sierra Leone
This lecture takes place in conjunction with 2008's Everybody Reads selection, A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah.
