Tower Center Happenings

  • 2010 Owens Conference 2.0: If you missed our conference on Mexico last week, (or were there) you still have an opportunity to participate! Pamela Starr, one of the conference participants, has launched a website with summaries of the panels, copies of the papers, and a space for discussion to continue. Click here to visit the site and continue the conversation. Here’s an opportunity to ask that brilliant question you had when Carole insisted that time was up.
  • Civil Rights Pilgrimage 2010: Each year, the Tower Center provides support for students to attend an eight-day bus trip through the American South’s civil rights landmarks. Tower Center Faculty Member, Dennis Simon, was one of the group leaders. Click here to read the students’ blog about the trip and see photos.
