Utah State University professor Bonnie Glass-Coffin will present the inaugural International Research Lecture Series hosted by the USU Vice President for Research Office. The new series is designed to highlight global research taking place at Utah State University.
The inaugural lecture is Wednesday, Nov. 17, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the Merrill-Cazier Library, Room 154.
Glass-Coffin, a social work, sociology and anthropology professor, will present “Doing Community Development Together: Students, Communities and Research in Huanchaco, Peru.” The lecture focuses on the field school she founded and directed and will include case studies, as well as lessons learned.
Glass-Coffin will be followed by a brief lecture by Christopher Neale of civil and environmental engineering, an informal discussion and a reception.
DeeVon Bailey, associate vice president for research, organized the series that will showcase research from different geographic areas on a rotating basis. The next lecture is slated for early spring 2011 and will highlight research in Africa — followed by lectures highlighting the Middle East and Asia. The lecture series will put focus on some of the excellent global research and technical assistance activities taking place at Utah State University.
