The Center for Creativity and the Arts invites the public to an exploration of the global phenomenon of roads and routes that shaped the history of the pre-modern world at 1 p.m., Thursday, March 7, in the Alice Peters Auditorium (Peters Building Room 191).

Since ancient times roads/routes have linked places and cultures, fostering in this process the trade, the spread of people, ideas, and technologies, the exploration and recording of new lands, the creation of settlements, the definition of landscapes, the building of empires and the shaping of nations. The colloquium is part of Center for Creativity and the Arts’ 2018-19 theme “Crossroads.”

Speakers include John Pohl, Steve Lekson, David Conrad, George Greenia, José Adrián Barragán-Álvarez and Wannasarn Noonsuk. The event will be moderated by Keith Jordan, professor of Art and Design and Luis J. Gordo-Peláez, assistant professor of Art and Design. Parking is $4 in lot P6. For more information contact
