Feb. 13: Speaker on Islam Theme Topic of "Idolatry and Iconoclasm: Historic Mecca Vanishes"
Throughout the year, visiting speakers will give presentations on their experiences with Islam and Muslims as part of Augustana’s International Theme for the 2013-14 academic year, “Islam in Our Community, Past and Present.”
From 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 13, in Humanities Center room 301, Dr. Joseph Dondelinger will give a talk titled, "Idolatry and Iconoclasm: Historic Mecca Vanishes."
It's a topic on Islam, not in this region, but should be of interest to Muslims and non-Muslims everywhere.

Designed to increase students’ understanding of global issues, Augustana introduced the International Theme three years ago and speakers are sponsored by the Co-Curricular Council. Throughout the academic year, students study and support theme-related issues with planned events.
