Faculty Talks

Why the Liberal Arts Matter: Faculty Talks at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College

 

Upcoming Events:
Map or Die: Cartography and Resistance in Late Capitalism

Wednesday, January 12, 2022 from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Maps shape the world. Historically, maps have been used to colonize and commodify; to conduct military campaigns, to divide up land and resources into property, to plat infrastructure, draw borders, and organize commerce. In an age of disruption, the subjugated and marginalized are learning how to map back. This talk will examine some of the ways maps are being used to reclaim language, sovereignty, rights, and resources, and maybe even to save us from extinction.

 

Previous Events:

English faculty member and writer Darci Schummer will read a selection from one of her current in-progress projects, a short story collection entitled Keystone Species.

 

 

 

“Why the Liberal Arts Matter: Faculty Talks” is sponsored by the Humanities & Sciences Divisions at Fond du Lac Tribal & Community College. We ask faculty to share academic topics related to their own research and/or teaching with a general audience of students, colleagues, and community members. Through these lectures on various subjects, we hope to show why a liberal arts education matters and demonstrate the value it brings to our communities and to the world.
