Professor Paul H. Brietzke, age 68, passed away Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013. Initial arrangements were private for family only. Memorial arrangements on campus are pending currently, and we will distribute that information as soon it becomes available. Also, a memorial celebration of his life is being planned for late spring in Ogden Dunes. Memorials may be made to Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and Oxfam America. Please remember his wife, Susan, and son, Colin, and their extended family in your prayers as they mourn their loss.
Professor Faisal Kutty’s article, “Free Expression and An Elusive Middle Ground: Part Two”, which argues that the global community must engage in a serious debate over the limits of free expression as it applies to the defamation of cultures and religions, and that in order to do so the extremists on both sides must face their own hypocrisy…, was published by jurist.org – http://www.jurist.org/forum/2013/01/faisal-kutty-expression-islam-part-two.php
