College Lodge the focus of upcoming Brown Bag talk
Monday, October 07, 2013

The Fall 2013 Liberal Arts and Sciences Brown Bag Lecture Series will focus on, "Digital Futures: Technology's Promises and Perils." The series offers monthly informal talks by SUNY Fredonia faculty members. Each panel presentation is followed by a brief discussion and refreshments.

The series begins on Wednesday, Oct. 9, with a panel on, “What Makes the Forests of the College Lodge Special.” Presenters include Associate Professor Jonathan Titus of the Department of Biology, who will describe the unique biological attributes of the College Lodge forests and how these attributes are viewed in very different ways by different stakeholders, which becomes particularly relevant in perspectives on forest health issues; and Associate Professor David Kinkela of the Department of History, who will focus on the longer history of nature preserves and explore why people, states and institutions created them. Professor Christina Jarvis of the Department of English, will moderate.

Subsequent presentations will be on “Digital Humanities” on Nov. 6 and “Science and Technology” on Dec. 4.

All presentations take place between noon and 1 p.m. in the Williams Center Room G103. The talks are free and open to all campus and community members. Classes are welcome.

This year’s series is directed by Dr. Jonathan Chausovsky (political science), Dr. Teodora Cox (mathematical sciences), Dr. Jack Croxton (psychology), Dr, Natalie Gerber (English), Dr, Laura Johnson (communication), and Dr. Theodore Lee (biology).
