NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS) will again host its Intellectual Conversations. The conversations will be held noon – 1 p.m. in NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library on NSU’s Fort Lauderdale/Davie campus. The schedule is as follows:
- Thursday, Sept. 22 – Music: A Naturalized Citizen (Who Never Held a Green Card.) Presented by Jessica Muniz-Collado, assistant professor of music, Department of Performing and Visual Arts. A multimedia presentation will examine the place and role of music in society through the realm of genre hybridity and film scoring.
- Thursday, Oct. 27 – Migration: The European Union and Refugees, presented by Tim Dixon, J.D., associate professor of history and legal studies, Department of History and Political Science. Since 2014, the countries of the European Union have experienced a massive influx of migrants, refugees from conflicts, oppression and economic despair. The sheer numbers of persons has created different political, social and economic problems for European nations and their populations.
- Thursday, Nov. 17 – Killing the Horse to Save the Cart: Musings on the Global Economy and Immigration, presented by Barbara Brodman, Ph.D., professor of history and legal studies, Department of History and Political Science. Thought many vehemently defend or decry the dominant global economic system – even with their lives and those of others – few actually understand the origins and theoretical underpinnings of that system.
The Intellectual Conversations program draws from the knowledge and expertise of full-time faculty members from NSU. The event is free and open to the public.
