Michigan State University is establishing the Foglio Chair of Spirituality in its College of Arts and Letters.

The Foglio Chair is named to honor Father Jake Foglio, an alumnus and Roman Catholic priest still in active ministry after more than 50 years of service to the MSU community through St. Johns Student Parish, 11 years on the faculty, and as an invaluable spiritual advisor for countless student-athletes and coaches. 

An extended conversation with English director Iqbal Khan, who has directed for The Globe Theater in London, as well as for the Royal Shakespeare Company. He speaks with WKAR's Jamie Paisley about why audiences have been drawn to his productions, and the salient points about contemporary casting in our seemingly contradictory post-Brexit, post-Trump-election world, which remains just as multicultural as it was a few months ago.
