Race, cancer focus of fall 'Signature Seminar'

The University of Arkansas recently announced that race and cancer, two of today's hot-button issues, will take their turn in the spotlight next fall when the school presents another in its "Signature Seminar" courses.

Charles Robinson, a student affairs vice chancellor and history professor, will present “Race: Rediscovered, Unresolved,” while Timothy Muldoon, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering, will discuss “Cancer: A Constellation of Disease.”
 
Robinson will offer a sneak preview of his course at 5:15 p.m. on Feb. 1, and Muldoon will do the same at the same time on Feb. 8 for Muldoon. While the courses are meant for honors students, the previews at Gearhart Hall are open to the public.

“We’re thrilled to offer these opportunities to our honors students,” Lynda Coon, dean of the honors college, said. “Next fall, in particular, the seminars will explore some of the defining issues of our day. I wish I could attend every one of these classes.”
