Chautauqua Nexus series begins Sept. 7

The educational and cultural Chautauqua Nexus series will begin the year with an event on Sept. 7. Ed Schiele will present "Arena Thinkball 2.0: Race Relations according to Shelby Steele."

The Nexus is an opportunity for intellectual and cultural exchange, said Joe McGahan, ULM psychology professor and Chautauqua Nexus organizer.

"One of our goals, as a nexus, is to bounce around ideas from different perspectives; the thinkball talk specifically addresses this goal and, in this case, is related to race relations - another interest of the nexus given our commitment to cultural diversity," McGahan said.

Nexus presentations are free, informal and open to the public. Everyone is invited to attend. ULM FRYS students are encouraged to attend and sign in.

All events are held at 7:15 p.m. in room 134 of the Airways Sciences building, located on the corner of Northeast Avenue and Filhiol.
