Talk to Highlight Intervention in African War Zones
Dr. Rebecca Golden Timsar will present a talk on Doctors without Borders in African war zones Thursday evening on the WSU campus.
Director of the Museum of Anthropology at WSU Jerry Martin says Dr. Timsar has spent time in areas of conflict in Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and India.
“Having worked in Africa as head of mission for the Doctors Without Borders for almost a decade, she’s going to discuss the challenges of intervening in war zones as well as answer questions concerning the organization’s work and how to get involved.”
Additionally, Dr. Timsar’s research spans a wide variety of subjects including gender, violence, youth, oil, religion and contemporary African society.
The talk is free and open to the public. More information is available at kmuw.org.
