Professor of economics Rajeev K. Goel, Ph.D., author of over 150 scholarly articles, 18 book chapters and two scholarly books, will give the fall College of Arts and Sciences Lecture at 7 p.m. Nov. 12 in the Old Main Room of the Bone Student Center.
The lecture, "Corrupt (and not so corrupt) Ways to View Corruption," will focus on what corruption is and the way daily life is affected by it.
A reception will follow the lecture. The event is free and open to the public.
"I welcome everyone to join us for what promises to be an insightful look at what corruption is and some of the ways that it affects our lives,” Interim College of Arts and Sciences Dean Diane Zosky said. “Dr. Goel is a talented scholar, and we look forward to learning more about this area of his research.”
Goel's research often focuses on tobacco, and he has been asked to serve on several research review panels regarding tobacco. He has also been invited to serve on a corruption index panel developed by Transparency International.
