Ronald Wright – A Short History of Progress: I. Gaugin’s Questions (Part 1 of 4)
Max Cameron speak at the Vancouver Urban Forum
Hey! Check out Max Cameron’s blog: http://blogs.ubc.ca/cameron/
Come hear what he has to say on Oct 30th at 6pm at MOA, along with Ronald Wright, and Fabiola Bazo.
Ronald Wright is an accomplished novelist, essayist, and historian. We are currently enjoying his A Short History of Progress (Anansi, 2004) in our office right now. It is based on his acclaimed 2004 Massey Lecture Presentation. In this essay, Wright discusses the repetitive nature of history; each time history repeats itself, so it’s said, the price goes up. The twentieth century was a time of runaway growth in human population, consumption, and technology, placing a colossal load on all natural systems, especially earth, air, and water—the very elements of life. Come and participate with him, Max Cameron, and Fabiola Bazo on Oct 30th at 6pm at MOA.
Have you read: Gender mainstreaming in science and technology: a reference manual for governments and other stakeholders by Fabiola Bazo and Elizabeth McGregor (Commonwealth Secretariat, 2001)?
The Manual suggests three themes as a proposed framework for approaching issues of gender in science and technology.
1. Science by whom?
2. Science for whom?
3. Science in the service of global stewardship
Come and participate with her, Max Cameron, and Ronald Wright on Oct 30th at 6pm at MOA. From October 30 – November 13 MOA will be hosting Tuesday evening conversations. To get an idea of what’s up coming, check out the event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/348680628558172/
