Oakland University to host memorial lecture
Oakland University's School of Business Administration will hold its ninth Alice Conner Gorlin Memorial Lecture titled "Russia's Virtual Economy: Evolution and Prospects," presented by Dr. Clifford Gaddy of The Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. The lecture will be held Thursday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m. in room 201 Dodge Hall.
"We are pleased to have Dr. Gaddy come to Oakland to speak on Russia's economy," said David Doane, professor, Business Administration. "He is very knowledgeable on Russian economy through his research as well as his work with the Russian government as an adviser."
Gaddy has a joint appointment at The Brookings Institution in the Center on Social and Economic Dynamics and the Foreign Policy Studies program. He also is an adjunct professor in the Department of Economics and the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies at Georgetown University.
The lecture was named after Alice Conner Gorlin, a professor of Economics at OU from 1972 until her death in 1987. She gained international recognition as a scholar of the Soviet economy. Her dedication to the broader 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.
