This year’s Spring Lecture Series theme is Migration.
Migration is essential to human survival. Whether driven by the spirit of discovery or hope for a better life, whether forced by conflict or required for access to resources – massive change alters us in small ways and large. How do we adapt to these uncertainties in a mindful way? What are the predominant patterns we can learn from and look towards? Our four lectures explore conflict-driven migration, climate change migration, regional migration that crosses state lines and interplanetary migration to Mars. We hope that this assembled group of experts can help us appreciate how migration can be a uniting force.
FREE to attend, registration required. All lectures will be held at Falvey Hall in the MICA Brown Center at 6:00 pm with a reception to follow.
