The Winona State University Athenaeum Series will host “A Space for the Mind: Evolution of Campus Environment as a Metaphor for the Meaning of Higher Education” at 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, on the second floor of the Darrell W. Krueger Library.
Associate Professor Juan C. Fernandez from WSU’s Global Studies and World Languages Department will discuss how the evolution of higher education has brought about a parallel evolution of educational and personal spaces throughout campus. Fernandez will examine former and current buildings on the WSU campus as a metaphor to illustrate the significance of those changes.
All WSU Athenaeum Series events are free and open to the public.
The Athenaeum hosts events that explore and enhance the intellectual life of the University and the region through lectures, readings, performances, discussions and other events. By bringing together scholars, performers, students and community members for intellectual discussion and the sharing of cultural experiences, the Athenaeum reflects the importance the University places on the humanities, the arts and the sciences.
