Visions & Ventures Symposium

Thursday, September 16, 2010 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

The theme for this year's annual Visions & Ventures Symposium is "Filters & Lenses: The Production, Dissemination and Reception of Information."

Author and law professor Patricia Williams will close the symposium with her lecture, "Race As A Filter: How We View Our Surrounding World."

Featured speakers at this year's Visions & Ventures will explore how an abundance of information doesn't necessarily mean we're getting the truth. Other speakers include journalist Ken Auletta, author and columnist Ken Auletta and artist David Bunn.

Classes will dismiss at 6 p.m. Wednesday and classes will not be held on Thursday to allow students, faculty and staff the opportunity to attend this symposium.

This free symposium will be held in O'Donnell Auditorium.
