Speakers’ Series free to the public

by KIT B. FASSLER

Pima Community College scheduled three speakers for fall semester to talk about different topics of interest.  The free talks starts at 6 p.m. in PCC’s district offices at 4905 E. Broadway Blvd., in the Community Board Room, C-105.  Light refreshment will be served.

Last Oct. 6, Jerry Gill, a Humanities instructor,  made a presentation about the Postmodern Era, 1960s to the present.  He also discussed the modern thinkers who defined the world and knowledge, such as Descartes, Newton and Kant.

There will be two more upcoming presentations:

• Nov. 3:  “Truths and Myths of Auto Repair,” by automotive technology instructor Skylar Webb.

Webb will discuss what to expect when taking your vehicle in for repairs and what your legal rights are as a consumer.

• Dec. 1:  “When Yes Means No: Communication Styles Across Cultures,” by Tatyana Thweatt, Speech Communication faculty.  Thweatt will talk about the importance of “face” across cultures and the effects of our communication styles on cultural competence.

PCC’s Faculty Speakers’ Series is sponsored by the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor along with PCC Faculty Senate.  For more information, call 206-4500.
