Linfield College, Afghani students debate via Skype

The Linfield forensics team is hosting an exhibition debate with Afghan students Tuesday, May 8, at 8 p.m. in Ford Hall.

Four Linfield students and four Afghan students will debate the motion “Access to the Internet is a fundamental human right.” The Afghan debaters will join the conversation via Skype. After the debate, there will be a question and answer session, in which the audience is encouraged to ask questions of the debaters.

“Even with an 11 1/2 hour time difference, we can still participate in intercultural exchange,” says Rachel Mills ’11, who helped organize the debate.

The event is sponsored by the Theatre and Communication Arts Department. For more information, contact Jackson Miller, 503-883-2625,
