Eco Cities Prezi Presentations

Add to Calendar12:15 pm – 3:45 pm

This is event is free and open to the public.

History 290 is a workshop exploring the contemporary eco city phenomena.  Our main focus is on New Songdo City in South Korea.  In this workshop session, students are presenting updated versions of their course Prezi, which is an archive of their thinking about their research projects on the eco city topic.  A random set of students will present their Prezi for audiance critique.  We invite anyone to participate in this process.  We request that everyone is mindful that this is a workshop, which means the student presentations are not final versions of their work.

Open Forum: US Default Crisis

Add to Calendar7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Thursday morning we will wake-up to the news that we have either crossed the threshold of default or we have delayed the issue for several more months.  The purpose of the forum is to provide the opportunity for our community to engage in open converstation about the political and financial predicaments we face.  The forum will not have a set list of speakers, but will aim for a spontaneous, open venue for academic discussion to take place.  What type of questions should we be asking?  What big topics/issues are before us?  What lines of analysis should we engage?  What role does higher education play in weathering the perfect storm of the default threshold? 


This event is free and open to ideas and the public.
