Penn State Harrisburg’s Dr. Kenneth Cunningham, associate professor of sociology, will be the keynote speaker this fall for the first Teaching International program lecture at Penn State Lehigh Valley.

Dr. Cunningham is program coordinator for Penn State Harrisburg’s bachelor of science in sociology, bachelor of science in applied behavioral science and the minor in sociology.

He will present “The Rocket’s Red Glare: Toxic Legacies of the U.S. Atom Bomb Tests Experimenting on Soldiers, Sailors, and Citizens” on Oct. 23 at 1 p.m. in Room 309 at the campus in Center Valley.  The event is free and open to the public.

The Teaching International Program at Penn State Lehigh Valley is a campus-wide academic initiative modeled after the program at Penn State Greater Allegheny.  The goals of the program are to  ensure students acquire the knowledge and skills needed in an interdependent world; strengthen the intellectual climate at the campus; connect the education of students with broader debates; and promote civic engagement, locally and globally.
