What makes one country develop into a democracy, and another into a dictatorship? That is the question at the heart of Clark College sociology professor Carlos Castro’s upcoming lecture, “Borderlines: Political and Economic Differences between Nicaragua and Costa Rica.” The lecture, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled for Thursday, May 8, from 4 to 5 p.m., in the Ellis Dunn Community Room (GHL 213).

Established by Clark College with support from the Clark College Foundation, the Clark College Faculty Speaker Series honors individual faculty members and celebrates academic excellence. The series showcases recent experiences that have enriched both the life and teaching of a Clark faculty member. Faculty members share their developmental experiences with the college community-and with members of the community at large-while addressing some of today’s most intriguing issues.
