Dr. Preston and Dr. Hicks were recent speakers at the Augustana Thought Leader Forum this fall, entitled "Violence in the Name of Religion."

Inside KELOLAND: Troubles In Northern Ireland
When you hear about terrorists and deadly bombings, the violence in the Middle East may come to mind. But what you might not realize is the world's best equipped illegal army wasn't in Iraq or Afghanistan, it was in Ireland.
The fight for political control, civil rights and religious freedoms led to decades of violence. In this Inside KELOLAND, we look closer at the troubles in Northern Ireland. Margaret Preston and Patrick Hicks with Augustana College discuss the past, the present and the future.
