Health, Culture and Nation-Making in National Protected Areas


2-3:15 p.m.

Join via Teams.

Presented by the Metropolitan State University of Denver Geography Program and featuring Lindy Lunstrum, Ph.D., of Boise State University and James Stinson, Ph.D., of York University, the presentation will examine how Canadian conservation, reflecting global trends, has worked to enable nation-making on jointly cultural and biological fronts. Parks are presented as vehicles that enable cultural identification with the nation and simultaneously help build a physically healthy and economically productive national population. This case brings together the surprisingly disconnected literatures on biopolitics and (cultural-territorial) nation-making. The event is open to the public.

Interprofessional Education Committee Virtual Lunch and Learn


Noon-1 p.m.

Please RSVP to Karen Meyer, assistant to the dean, College of Health and Applied Sciences, to attend.

The benefits of teaching students how to work across disciplines in preparation for post-graduation careers are well-known. To learn more about creating exciting interdisciplinary experiences for students in the 2021-22 academic year, faculty members are invited to join the College of Health and Applied Sciences’ Interprofessional Education Committee for a pair of informal virtual Lunch and Learn events.

The events will include an overview, resources and a panel discussion that highlights the benefits of interprofessional experiences for students and overcoming barriers to implementing them.

Faculty panelists will represent the Departments of Aviation and Aerospace Science, Human Services and Counseling, Journalism and Media Production, Marketing, Nursing, Social Work and more.

The Interprofessional Education Committee will develop future activities and events to help faculty members learn about and develop more collaborative opportunities for students. This will include “matchmaking” but also developing structural suggestions for adjustments to current processes. With questions about how to become a panelist or general Interprofessional Education Committee goals, please email Jess Retrum, Ph.D., associate professor and chair, Social Work, or Terry Buxton, Ph.D., chair, Nursing.
