Dr. Tony Waters will lead a presentation and discussion time on April 26 at 5 pm in the conference room at the Institute of Religion, Culture & Peace on Payap University's Mae Khao campus.
His sociological analysis is based on his experiences with refugee relief operations in Thailand in the early 1980's and later in Tanzania in the 1990's. He will reflect on what these experiences mean for how the world evaluates humanitarian relief operations today. The lecture and discussion is based on his 2001 book, "Bureaucratizing the Good Samaritan: The Limitations of Humanitarian Relief Operations."

Sport and scholarship have a number of things in common? They require effort and give pleasure. For athletes and academics to play the game, a range of skills must be acquired and practiced. Sometimes a little coaching drastically improves how well we play.
For those working in academic institutions with limited resources computers are not toys – they are powerful tools. This informal end-of-semester workshop is open to anyone wanting to learn how to better manage, manipulate, and maximise electronic literature. Dr. Joll will introduce (a) basic principles of electronic data management, and (b) specific programs which work on both Windows and Mac machines. Remember that regardless of the operating system used, any one task can be done by more than one program.
