Family scholar Allan C. Carlson will present “Third Ways: Rebuilding an American Economy Focused on the Family and Community,” March 24, at the University of Tennessee at Martin. The lecture is scheduled at 7 p.m. in Watkins Auditorium of Boling University Center.

Carlson’s lecture will address questions such as: Does conservatism invariably mean defending the actions of the great banks and corporations? Is agrarianism a ridiculous anachronism in the 21st century? Is it conservative to wage perpetual war for perpetual peace? 

Carlson is president of the Howard Center for Family, Religion & Society. His books include “The Natural Family: A Manifesto” and “The ‘American Way’: Family and Community in the Shaping of the American Identity.” The Intercollegiate Studies Institute and its UT Martin chapter student organization will sponsor the lecture.

Dr. Sandra Rosenthal, Vanderbilt University professor of chemistry, will present a seminar on “White-Light Emitting Nanocrystals for Energy Efficient Solid-State Lighting” at the University of Tennessee at Martin. Set for 7 p.m., March 31, in Room 317, Johnson EPS Building, the seminar is free and open to the public. Rosenthal is a professor in the departments of physics, pharmacology and chemical and biomolecular engineering. She is also director of the Vanderbilt Institute of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. The seminar is sponsored by the UT Martin chapter of the Student Members of the American Chemical Society as part of an International Year of Chemistry project grant on “An IYC Focus on Green Energy and Sustainable Quality Environment.”
