Save the dates for Fall Quarter Evergreen Talks on November 12 and December 11
We are happy to announce that the Evergreen Talks public faculty lecture series is returning this year! Last year’s series, which began in March, featured Zoltán Grossman, Frederica Bowcutt, and Ulrike Krotscheck. All three talks represented the variety of important, fascinating research projects that faculty here are pursuing and publishing, presenting them in an accessible way to the larger community. Both were very well attended and received, generating much discussion and many questions. Once again, the lectures will take place in the Lord Mansion, an historic property in the Capitol neighborhood, whose stewardship the Washington State Legislature transferred to Evergreen in 2018.
Our first lecture will be given by Tina Kuckkahn-Miller, J.D., Vice-President of Indigenous Arts and Education and adjunct faculty for the Masters in Public Administration program. Dr. Kuckkahn-Miller will be joined by Senator John McCoy (38th Dist. – Tulalip) on Tuesday, November 12, 6:30-8:00pm. Dr. Kuckkahn-Miller and Senator McCoy will speak on “Changing the Narrative of Education in Indian Country.”
Our second lecture will be given by Dr. Cali Ellis, who has been teaching in the Masters of Public Administration program since fall 2017, on Wednesday, December 11, 6:30-8:00 p.m. Dr. Ellis will speak on “Life Experiences of International Leaders: Which Experiences Matter, and Why? Data from a comprehensive study of 2,500 world leaders since the 1870s.”
The Lord Mansion and adjacent Coach House are located at 211 21st Avenue SW in Olympia. We hope to see many of you there!
Please let us if you have ideas about future speakers or if you have any questions about Evergreen Talks.
