Professor Shifferd will discuss the complicated historic and current relationships between the Islamic world and “The West;” including what we share in common, how we differ, what all the fighting is about, and potential outcomes of the current conflicts.

A life-long environmental and peace activist, Kent Shifferd holds a PhD in European history from Northern Illinois University. He taught primarily at Northland College and had visiting appointments at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Ripon College, and United Theological Seminary. 


Shifferd left teaching in 1999 to devote full time to writing. He was a member of the team that created the award-winning distance learning program Dilemmas of War and Peace funded by the Annenberg Foundation and The Corporation For Public Broadcasting and published by the Regents Of The University Of Wisconsin. He is the author of From War To Peace: A Guide To The Next Hundred Years (McFarland, 2011), “In the Land of the Blind,” a chapter critiquing Obama’s environmental policies in Grading The 44th President (Praeger, 2012).
