The University of West Florida’s Downtown Lecture series will begin this week with a presentation from the school’s president.
President Judy Bense—who is also an archeologist—will speak Wednesday evening at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition downtown. Her lecture is entitled ‘Where’s My Shovel: Archaeological Tools and the University Presidency.’
The lecture series—UWF Downtown: A Lecture Series Honoring the Arts and Humanities’—consists of four presentations stretching from now until March. On Nov. 8, political science professor Jocelyn Evans will present ‘Virtually Representative?: Security, Transparency and Social Identity in the Digital Age.’ Glenn Breed, associate professor of theatre, will present ‘How Clothes Made the Man: My Life is Costuming’ on Feb. 7. And, finally, on March 28, U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Tretheway will present ‘An Evening with Natasha Tretheway.’
This week’s presentation by Bense begins at 5:30 p.m. with refreshments, followed by her lecture. For more information visit uwf.edu/cas/downtownseries.
