Thursday, December 7, at 7 p.m. at the Grande Event Centre on Main Street in North Bay Nipissing University will present some futuristic presentations and thoughtful discussion in celebration of Nipissing's 25th anniversary.
This is the fifth and final instalment of NU2042: Time Travellers Wanted, a speaker series featuring five faculty members looking 25 years into the future through the lens of their research. Each speaker speaks for just five minutes so the event moves along at a pretty good clip. There's a Q&A that follows as well.
Faculty speaking on December 7 include:
- Dr. Mark Bruner, Associate Professor School of Physical and Health Education, and Canada Research Chair in Youth Development through Sport and Physical Activity;
- Dr. Carly Dokis, Associate Professor Anthropology;
- Dr. Kirsten Greer, Assistant Professor History and Geography, and Canada Research Chair in Global Environmental Histories and Geographies;
- Dr. April James, Associate Professor of Geography and Canada Research Chair Watershed Analysis and Modelling; and
- Dr. Astrid Steele, Associate Professor, Schulich School of Education;
Each of the previous four NU2042 events has been successful, with good attendance, cool presentations and lots of engaging discussion; I promise that it'll be worth a night out in December.
