School of Medicine, Duluth to Hold
Dennis Brissett Memorial Lecture


"Voices From the Grave:
Interviews With Parents of Murdered Children"

May 4
Public Cordially Invited

The annual presentation of the Dennis Brissett Memorial Lecture Series will be held May 4 at 3:00 p.m. in the School of Medicine, Duluth, room 142. Speaker will be Dr. Daniel Martin of the UMD Department of Sociology and Anthropology. A reception will be held following the lecture in the School of Medicine, Duluth atrium.

Dr. Martin teaches in the areas of inequality and organizations. Before entering a doctoral program at the University of Minnesota -Twin Cities, he worked as a treatment coordinator for abused children at Waverly Children's Home in Portland, Oregon. For the last six years, his interests in inequality, community, organizations, and social movements have been pursued through community action research with low income families of murdered children in Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati. Dr. Martin is the recipient of multiple teaching awards including the Panhellenic Association Outstanding Professor Award, and has been an active member in Oxford Citizens for Peace and Justice, Professors for Peace, and Results: An International Citizens Lobby Against Childhood Poverty.

Denny Brissett was a charter faculty member of the School of Medicine, founding member and first head of the Department of Behavioral Sciences, and sage advisor to many until his death in 1996. The lecture series honors his contributions to the School of Medicine, and his often unique perspective on work, life, and academic pursuits. The public is cordially invited to attend and celebrate afterward.

The lecture series is sponsored by School of Medicine, Duluth, Associate Professor Gary Davis, and UMD Department of Sociology/Anthropology Associate Professor Janelle Wilson, in honor of Denny Brissett.
