Kick off the new year with RiverLink's Friday Salon Series featuring Dr. Frank KalinowskiFrom RiverLink:
Earlier this year, we welcomed Dr. Frank Kalinowski to the RiverLink offices for a riveting discussion about the founding fathers and their lasting impact on modern environmental policy.
Dr. Kalinowski is a retired and popular professor from Warren Wilson College and the author of numerous articles and treatises that are thought provoking and informative about the complex world in which we live today.
RiverLink is pleased to announce Dr. Kalinowski is back for another stimulating five-part seminar series entitled, "The American Constitution: The Logic of Law and the Consequences for the Nation."
The purpose of these interactive lectures is to explore a deeper understanding of environmental issues and to attempt the placement of these issues in a larger social, political and historic context.
Each lecture will take place from 3-5 p.m. at the RiverLink offices on Friday afternoons.
The dates and topics for the talks will be:
January 17 - "How Supreme Court Judges Decide: Understanding the Citizens United case."
February 21 - "How the Supreme Court Shapes Policy: Governmental Power, Civil Liberties, and Civil Rights."
March 21, April 18, and May 16 will focus on "Environmental Legacies: Politics, Policy, and American National Character."
The Friday Salon series is free and open to the public. However, space is limited for these talks.
To take part of this great discussion, it is important that to reserve a seat as soon as possible. Attendees will be able to make a one-time or standing reservation depending on schedule.
Registration is available online.
