Released: 10/19/2004

Professor Armand Hage, dean of Liberal Arts, English and Humanities at the University of New Caledonia, France, will be at LSU Alexandria on Wednesday, Oct. 27, to present a discussion on censorship in the United States. Students, faculty, staff and the public are encouraged to attend this free event. It will be from 3-5 p.m. in the Bolton Library. Hage is a historian and author of books on the American political and judicial system. He was invited to speak at LSU Alexandria by Dr. Annette Olsen-Fazi, associate professor of English. The two became friends when they taught together at the University of Nice, France, where they were professors of Anglo-American studies. Dr. Olsen-Fazi said Hage’s visit is part of an ongoing effort to bring guest speakers to the LSU Alexandria campus. Hage’s talk will include a historical overview of censorship with a concentration on the McCarthy era.
