Dear CSU-Pueblo Community,
We are pleased to announce the second annual Bea Spade Memorial Lecture Series, which will be taking place next week on March 19th and 20th. Professor Ann Little from CSU Fort Collins will be our speaker. Her visit will coincide with the Phi Alpha Theta history honor society induction ceremony; will be co-hosted by the French Club, and will coincide with the French honor society initiation; and is co-sponsored by the History Department, CHASS, and a Student Organization Funding grant.
Please see the list and description of events below, which will include fascinating talks on the role of captivity and conversion in cross-cultural encounters in colonial North America. We hope you can attend some or all of them. Events are free and open to the public with the exception of the banquet at Union Depot (see below). Tickets for the banquet will be on sale through 5PM on Monday, March 17th in the History Department office in PSY 102. The cost for the banquet will be $8 for non-students and $5 for students.
