Welcome back to the start of the school year! We’ll have a number of events of interest this fall. Some are sure to come up later, but here’s a sampling:
The Art Museum will be presenting a video, Tooba, in the Sussel Gallery. Tooba is the name for a woman and a tree, and refers to a mythical female character from the Qur’an that suggests a type of sacred or promised tree. Opening reception is September 6th.
The Wooster Forum includes a speaker, Gidon Bromberg, who will focus on the role of water in the Middle East — how it contributes to conflict and how protecting water can encourage regional cooperation. He will be speaking in McGaw on October 8th at 7:30.
Also consider venturing off-campus. Janine Benyus will be speaking about biomimicry in the Great Lakes region at the University of Akron on September 20th. Tickets are required but some free tickets are available; check here.
Finally, the environmental studies program will continue its bi-weekly brownbag discussions at noon in Morgan 309. The first one will be September 21. Speaker TBA. Watch this space!
