Gorlin Lecture features economics professor

Professor of Economics at Michigan State University Susan Linz will speak at OU’s 2003 Alice Conner Gorlin Memorial Lecture Thursday, April 3, at 3 p.m. in 242 Elliott Hall. Her lecture is titled “Barriers to Investment by Russian Firms.”

Linz is a research fellow of the William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Illinois and B.A. from Albion College. She is the editor of three books: “The Impact of World War II on the Soviet Union” (1985), “Reorganization and Reform in the Soviet Economy” (1988) and “The Soviet Economic Experiment: Essays by James R. Millar” (1990). She also has published many articles in professional journals.

The Gorlin Lecture was established in honor of former Professor of Economics Alice Conner Gorlin, who taught at OU from 1972 until her death in 1987. Gorlin’s dedication to the role of human beings as citizens of the world led her friends to sponsor this free public lecture series to promote understanding of international issues and events.
