Date(s) & Time(s)::
February 28, 2013 at 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM
Location: Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, IL
This is the second year of the Imagining Geographies initiative and we have an excellent program lined up for the spring. Last year we focused on Antarctica, which was a great success for the university and Southern Illinois in a collaborative effort to create an event series that built a bridge to the community from an interdisciplinary effort on campus. This year we are focusing on Southern Illinois: Land, Lives and Arts. We are very excited about this year's program and hope you share in that excitement by helping tell our story, along with the unique and multi-faceted story of Southern Illinois.Return to event list.
