We invite you to join us for the Working with Working Lands Speaker Event on November 8. Details are as follows; a flyer is attached.

Please share this widely!

About the event: 

Much of Idaho consists of rural and remote working lands. Working with working land communities requires appreciating the unique challenges they face and self-reflection regarding the sustainability of knowledge production itself. These talks help prompt this reflection/introspection with our shared Boise State community. 

About the speakers: 

Dr. Paul B Thompson is the author of the awarded book Spirit of the Soil, detailing the ethics of food production and ideals that guide varying agricultural communities. Dr. Thompson’s research is on the ethics and value-dimensions of agriculture and the challenges agriculture communities are currently navigating.

Dr. Robert Frodeman is the co-author of Socrates Tenured, detailing the pathologies and politics of knowledge production in the 21st century university. Dr. Frodeman’s research envisions the future of the University where knowledge brokers help to match the supply and demand of a sustainable knowledge economy.
