Dr. Sean Kay, professor in the Department of Politics and Government at Ohio Wesleyan University, will present "Rockin' the Free World" as part of the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy's spring lecture series.

Kay's recent book "Rockin' the Free World" takes readers inside Bob Dylan's America and shows how this vision linked the rock and roll revolution to American values of freedom, equality, human rights and peace while tracing how those values have spread globally. The book shows how artists have engaged in advancing change via opportunity and education; domestic and international issue advocacy; and within the recording and broader communications industry.

This is an approved Navigator event fulfilling the core value of consciousness of self.
