Three University of Wyoming faculty members will present “Motive and Migration: Past, Present and Future” as part of the Centennial Speaker Series Wednesday, July 12, from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Centennial Library, located at 27 Second St. in Centennial.
The speaker series, hosted by UW’s Center for Global Studies (CGS) and the Centennial Library, brings international concerns and discussions to the southeast Wyoming community.
Jim Ahern, a professor of anthropology and vice provost and dean of the UW School of Graduate Education; Caroline McCracken-Flesher, a professor of English and director of UW’s CGS; and Jerry Fowler, an assistant professor of law and director of UW’s International Human Rights Clinic, bring three moments and perspectives to bear on the challenge of how and when people move in the world.
Ahern will focus on the interaction of Neanderthals and modern humans; McCracken-Flesher will consider the cultural impact of crisis through Daniel Defoe’s “A Journal of the Plague Year”; and Fowler will address immigration in the context of international human rights.
