  GEOGRAPHY : What is geography? What about a career in geography?                Why is Geography as the perfect major for you?

A definition: Geography is the science of place and space. Geographers always ask where things are located on the surface of the earth, why they are located where they are, how places differ from one another, and how people interact with the environment.               

So how do you know if you want to be a geographer? If you are curious to find out if  you have an interest in geography, check out the AAG (Association of American Geographers) web site. Go to "Careers in Geography" to find out more about "Geographers at work"...

From Rodney King to Michael Brown: Voicing Community

Tuesday, April 12, 2016
12:30 PM - 1:45 PM (ET)
Rondileau Campus Ctr 201

Playwright Anna Deavere Smith has argued that “to develop a voice one must develop an ear.” Smith’s extraordinary play Twilight, Los Angeles explores the 1992 Los Angeles riots, which followed the acquittal of four white police officers on trial for the beating of black motorist Rodney King. The play presents monologues taken verbatim from interviews conducted with people related directly or indirectly to the LA riots. How might the voicing of this community help us to consider the riots in Ferguson and Baltimore in 2014 and 2015 as well as racial relations in our own community? Join us for an excerpt from a filmed version of Smith’s performance as we think through the dynamics of US racial conflict and consider what it means to have a voice and be a community.
