Hollywood , Pirated Videos and Child Soldiers

On Wednesday evening Macalaster College is hosting what looks like a fascinating lecture by Emmanuel Dongala, a Chemistry professor from Bard College, on child soldiers in the Congo.

Starting from a fateful encounter he had with children at a roadblock they were controlling, he will discuss why and how these kids turned into child soldiers. He will explore the impact of Hollywood movies and satellite TV on child soldiers.  He will also discuss the current state of ex-child soldiers.
