Big Idea Seminar Series 2016-2017
Registration is now open for a new year of our SFU Shadbolt Graduate Liberal Studies Big Idea Seminar Series. This time we're bringing GLS to New Westminister and Port Moody.
Starting in October, we'll be offering two sessions at the Century House at 620 Eighth Street, New Westminster. What's It All About, Elizabeth Gilbert? will be presented by Reema Faris on October 18th and 25th and Finding Home in an Evolving City presented by Jennifer Chutter on November 8th and 15th.
The new year will find us at the Port Moody Recreation Center at 300 Ioco Road, Port Moody. Margaret Easton will be presenting Do Novels about Old Age Matter? on January 18th and 25th 2017 and Duane Fontaine will be revisiting Darwin's Lasting Impact on February 21st and 28th.
These free seminar style classes provide participants with an opportunity to revisit, rethink, and reframe many of the most influential works of Western culture in light of current topics of social importance. Each seminar consists of two two-hour workshops on a wide range of topics and will be presented by GLS alumni and SAR/GLS PhD students.
