Tim Marchand to deliver next ELP Lecture on November 27

The new English Language Program Lecture Series has already proven a hit with students and faculty alike. In July Marcos Benevides drew a large crowd for the first lecture in the series, “Archetypes and Popular Culture,” and Damon Brewster’s October offering, “From Pepper to Exam Hell,” was every bit as popular.

The next lecture in the series, entitled “Maps and Meaning,” will be delivered by Tim Marchand on November 27. Humans have created many kinds of maps over thousands of years, and these maps often contain hidden assumptions that may not be obvious to the people using them. In his lecture Mr. Marchand will explore this issue by looking at several kinds of maps, before discussing his personal view of what a map should mean.

Students, faculty, staff, and any other interested people are all welcome to attend.

Date and time: Wednesday, November 27, from 5:50 to 6:35 p.m.

Place: Room A716 (Meimeikan, on Machida Campus)

The lecture will be in English with no translation. There is no fee to attend, and reservations are not necessary.
