Please join Professor of Geography Pete Nelson for a talk entitled "Migration response to the COVID-19 pandemic." As the COVID-19 pandemic emerged in early 2020, the media began reporting stories of people leaving cities to shelter in place in smaller towns and rural regions. Pete Nelson analyzed data collected monthly from mobile devices to examine migration patterns during the first nine months of the pandemic. The analysis reveals clear migration shifts out of the largest metropolitan core regions into “micropolitan” centers, small towns, and rural regions, especially after states began lifting stringent interstate travel restrictions. There is also strong evidence these migration shifts have set off a period of frenzied real estate activity.

Please join Associate Professor of History Joyce Mao for a talk entitled "How China Made the 'New Right' New: A Brief History." After Japanese bombs hit Pearl Harbor, the American Right stood at a crossroads. Generally isolationist, conservatives needed to forge their own foreign policy agenda if they wanted to remain politically viable. Joyce Mao, Associate Professor of History, will discuss how foreign policy changes following the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in 1949 and during the Cold War led to American conservatism as we know it today.

Please join Language Teacher Education and Intercultural Communication Associate Professor Netta Avineri of the Middlebury Institute for a talk entitled "Pedagogies of Interdisciplinarity: Possibilities and Prospects for the Social Issues of Our Time." In this talk, Netta Avineri will explore how dialogue among different experiences and identities can create new avenues for hope and change. She highlights the ‘pedagogies of interdisciplinarity’ she uses in her coursework and community engagement at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS). She will discuss case studies including educational/language inequities, housing insecurity, immigration, Indigenous representation, and public health. By bringing together a range of viewpoints, recognizing the conflicts involved, and ‘coalescing’ around common intentions and goals, these intercultural exchanges can foster students’ critical abilities to address the world’s most complex problems.
