Door County Activities: St. Norbert Distinguished Lecture Series Continues

The face of Mother Russia has changed significantly, both domestically and internationally, in the course of her history. Addressing the issues facing Russia’s future, Dr. Joe Tulbane will present the second lecture in a series presented by the St. Norbert College faculty and hosted by the Door Community Auditorium on Saturday, January 31 at 9 am.

“In the last few years Russian politics have given us food for thought as we consider its future place in the world and its progress toward democracy and a free-society,” explained Dr. Tulbane. “My discussion will seek to explore the future of this geo-politically important country, in terms of the Putin ‘cult of personality’ and its economic progress.”

The Associate Dean for International Education and Outreach for St. Norbert College, Dr. Tulbane earned a Ph.D. in Russian Area Studies from Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. His educational background also includes degrees in Design Architecture from Rice University and International Relations from The American University. As the Assistant Professor of Leadership and International Studies, Dr. Tulbane teaches courses in Leadership Studies, International Studies, and Russian Politics.

Prior to his appointment on St. Norbert College’s faculty, Dr. Tulbane served as a Russian political-military affairs consultant to the Department of the Army.

The St. Norbert Distinguished Lecture Series is free and open to the public. The third lecture in the series will be presented on February 21. Entitled “Opinion Polls: The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth Plus or Minus 3%” will be presented by Dr. David Wegge.
