The UW-Green Bay Global Studies program is holding a very important campus discussion about the legacy of Alexander von Humboldt, whose anniversary of his 250th birthday is celebrated by the world in 2019. The first fall 2019 conversation, “Alexander von Humboldt: An Intellectual Giant for All Ages,” will be led by Professors Marcelo Cruz (Global Studies, PEA, Geography) and Cristina Ortiz (Global Studies, Humanities and Spanish). The event is Friday, Sept. 13 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in Phoenix C, University Union, Green Bay Campus. Free and open to the public.
Come and discover why Alexander von Humboldt is still important and why Green Bay has a street named after him! Following the presentation, the audience will get a chance to ask our experts questions. These discussions allow us, as a campus, to have important and timely conversations about topical events and processes around the world.
