URI's Honors Colloquium to focus on
'Nonviolence: Legacies of the Past, Bridges to the Future'

KINGSTON, R.I. -- August 22, 2000 – The University of Rhode Island, with sponsorship from The Providence Journal, will present a timely and thought-provoking series on nonviolence this fall.

URI's Honors Colloquium, "Nonviolence: Legacies of the Past, Bridges to the Future," is a semester-long series of free, public programs.

Speakers include civil rights activist Coretta Scott King, Nobel Peace Prize recipient Mairead Corrigan Maguire, Pulitzer Prize winner David Halberstam and folk singer Pete Seeger.

Two URI professors coordinate this year's colloquium: Arthur Stein, professor of political science and peace studies and Lynne Derbyshire, assistant professor of communications studies & women studies.

While the colloquium is designed for college students and the general public, students in grades K-12 will be invited to reflect on the subject by participating in a peace poster project this fall. The project is co-sponsored by the University and The Providence Journal.

For the most current colloquium information, call the URI Honors Center at 401-874-4732 or visit

The schedule is available electronically. There have been a few changes in the program. If you would like an updated version e-mailed to you, contact Jan Sawyer at 401-874-2116 or
