PROF. LiS SFvEei alUog
Directing diverse dialogues


What are some of the classes
you teach?
Sociology of Multiculturism. We
talk about diversity and the con-
flicts arising from diversity. It's a
hands-on, face-to-face interaction.
I'm also teaching a class that is new
to LSA about animals and society,
how we associate with animals and
so on.
What are some of your favor-
ite teaching methods?
I consider my classes to be class-
es on dialogues. Students form
small groups, they write journals,
they find ways to contribute to the
class. I have alotofpeople from dif-
ferent backgrounds, which makes
for different conversations.
Do you have any classes you
may want to teach inthe future?

President Barack Obarna answers question on the ongoing situation in Libya during his joint news conference with El
Salvador President Mauricio Funes at the National Palace in San Salvador, El Salvador, yesterday.
Obama: U.S. to turn over control
of Libya operations within days

Administration will
not request funding
from Congress
four-day air assault in Libya will
soon achieve the objectives of
establishing a no-fly zone and
averting a massacre of civilians
by Moammar Gadhafi's troops,
President Barack Obama said
yesterday, adding that despite
squabbling among allies, the
United States will turn control of
the operation over to other coun-
tries within days.
"When this transition takes
place, it is not going to be our
planes that are maintaining the
no-fly zone. It is not going to
be our ships that are necessar-
ily enforcing the arms embargo.
That's precisely what the other
nations are going to do," the
president said at a news confer-
ence in El Salvador as he neared
the end of a Latin American
trip overshadowed by events in
He spoke as one senior Amer-
ican military official said the
Persian Gulf nation of Qatar
was expected to start flying air
patrols over Libya by this week-
end, becoming the first member
of the Arab League to partici-
pate directly in the military

The president also suggested
the administration would not
need to request funding from
Congress for the air operations
but would pay for them out of
money already approved.
Administration officials
briefed lawmakers during the
day about costs and other details
to date.
Criticism of the operation
has been muted so far, with the
president out of the country, but
is likely to increase once he flies
home today - a few hours earlier
than had been scheduled.
The Pentagon said two dozen
more Tomahawk cruise missiles
were launched from U.S. and
British submarines late Monday
and early yesterday againstLiby-
an targets, raisingthe total to 161
aimed at disabling Gadhafi's air
Adm. Samuel J. Locklear III
said Libyan ground troops will
be more vulnerable as the coali-
tion grows in size and capability,
but he declined to provide details
of future targeting. He spoke to
reporters at the Pentagon from
aboard his command ship in the
Mediterranean Sea.
The president and Pentagon
officials have stressed since the
military campaign began that
America would quickly give
other countries the lead.
"I think fairly shortly we are
going to be able to say that we've

achieved the objective of a no-fly
zone. We will also be able to say
that we have averted immediate
tragedy," Obama said.
He told reporters he had spo-
ken earlier with British Prime
Minister David Cameron and
French President Nicolas Sar-
kozy in hopes of quickly resolv-
ing a dispute over the transition
of the military mission.
With congressional critics
growing more vocal, the presi-
dent defended the wisdom of the
operation so far.
"It is in America's national
interests to participate... because
no one has a bigger stake in mak-
ingsure that there arebasic rules
of the road that are observed,
that there is some semblance of
order and justice, particularly
in a volatile region that's going
through great changes," Obama
With longtime autocratic gov-
ernments under pressure else-
where in the Arab world, the
president made clear his decision
to dispatch U.S. planes and ships
did not automatically signal he
would do so everywhere.
"That doesn't mean we can
solve every problem in the 0
world," he said.
Several members of Con-
gress, including a number
from Obama's own party, were
increasingly questioning the
wisdom of U.S. involvement.
