Commmunity Classroom Explores Riots in France
In the wake of these riots, the tensions in disadvantaged communities are very obvious. Butler will discuss how France is coping with its legacy of immigration and discuss key differences between the way France and the United States deal with issues of ethnic and religious diversity. She will also explore the potential consequences of inadequate solutions to this problem and if France is at risk of becoming the next potential recruiting ground for Islamic fundamentalist groups.
The Community Classroom Series is sponsored by the UW-RF College of Arts and Sciences and the outreach office. All events are free, open to the public and are held from 7-8:30 p.m. at the River Falls Public Library on Division and Union streets in River Falls. No reservations are required to attend.
