Wednesday, November 16: "Diversity Film Series: Sin Nombre" - For many Central and South American immigrants, the "high road" is on top of freight trains headed north to the U.S. The travel is often fraught with danger, not just from the obvious risk of falling off, but also from the gangs that terrorize and exploit the vulnerable travelers.

Thursday, November 17: Art Lecture, "What if...?" - Artist William Jackson creates art in order to "satisfy an ever-shifting, creative/technical curiosity." He will discuss the creative process that involves experimentation and asking "What if...?"
