Upcoming Nexus discussions continue with free coffee tasting and “Invisible Children”

The educational and cultural Chautauqua Nexus series will continue its semester roster with several scheduled discussions.

Courtesy of Aramark, the Nexus scheduled for Monday, March 19 is a “Coffee Tasting at Starbucks.” This will be the only presentation this
semester not held at the Airway Sciences Building. The free coffee tasting (with some dessert items) will be at the Starbucks site across Northeast Avenue from the library in one of ULM's newest buildings. Commercial (non-student) parking is on the east side of the building.

Carly Clifton and Tyler Boyd will lead a Nexus entitled “Invisible Children” Thursday, March 22. Clifton will focus on Uganda’s history, particularly a detailed look into the society and the problems the county faces. Boyd will focus on how mass media plays a vital role in our participation for providing support for the cause.

Joe McGahan will present “The Reinforcing Properties of Praying” Monday, March 26.

Tae-hyun Kim will speak about “U.S. Newspaper Coverage of Global Warming Policy” Thursday, March 29.

All Chautauqua Nexus events are scheduled at 7:15 p.m. in room 134 of the Airway Science Building (at the corner of Northeast Avenue & Filhiol Street).

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.

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