NIC's Phi Theta Kappa chapter to present seminar on power
The North Idaho College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for two-year colleges, will present a two-part seminar focused on power this month.
The seminar is part of the chapter’s exploration of this year’s Phi Theta Kappa honors study topic “Gold, Gods and Glory: The Global Dynamics of Power.” The topic is utilized as the focus of various Phi Theta Kappa honors programs.
The first part of the seminar will be the showing of the 1992 film “The Distinguished Gentleman” at 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1 in Room 102 of the Meyer Health and Sciences Building on NIC’s main campus. The film, starring Eddie Murphy, is a comedy centered around politics and what lobbyists will do to get what they want in Washington, D.C.
The second part of the seminar will be presented via a videotaped lecture by Jeffrey Birnbaum, an award-winning writer and television commentator. He will present on “Money Talks: Lobbyists and the Power of Money in Washington” at 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8 in Room 102 of the Meyer Health and Sciences Building.
Both events are free and open to the public and will include refreshments.
